Guide to Reliable Distributed Systems: Building High-Assurance Applications and Cloud-Hosted Services

Guide to Reliable Distributed Systems: Building High-Assurance Applications and Cloud-Hosted Services

This book describes the key concepts, principles and implementation options for creating high-assurance cloud computing solutions. The guide starts with a broad technical overview and basic introduction to cloud computing, looking at the overall architecture of the cloud, client systems, the modern Internet and cloud computing data centers. It then delves into the core challenges of showing how reliability and fault-tolerance can be abstracted, how the resulting questions can be solved, and how the solutions can be leveraged to create a wide range of practical cloud applications. The author’s style is practical, and the guide should be readily understandable without any special background. Concrete examples are often drawn from real-world settings to illustrate key insights. Appendices show how the most important reliability models can be formalized, describe the API of the Isis2 platform, and offer more than 80 problems at varying levels of difficulty.

Hawk Defense Partners With FireHost to Provide Advanced Threat Detection Services

Addison, TX (PRWEB) April 17, 2015

HAWK Network Defense, the software manufacturer of eyeCon, a revolutionary new Big Data Security Analytics Platform, today announced a partnership with secure cloud leader FireHost providing a superior level of security to their cloud customers.

“As cyber security concerns continue to rise, companies and cloud providers need the ability to ingest billions of raw security events to locate true indicators of compromise which is critical to any security operations center (SOC). HAWK’S eyeCon uses a combination of active threat intelligence and advanced algorithms to continuously analyze machine data allowing for near real time detection of complex threats. HAWK provides FireHost the ability to identify malicious activity and to detect previously undetectable malicious activity allowing FireHost to provide a superior level of security for their cloud customers. The partnership with FireHost allows HAWK to reach customers who have chosen the FireHost Secure Cloud as their provider,” said Mr. David Harris, CEO of Hawk Defense.

“I have spent the better part of 2 years evaluating and systematically analyzing the vendor space in cyber analytics and I can state that the capabilities evidenced by the HAWK Defense system are far reaching and there are few tools or technologies that are in HAWK’s league, and fewer still that can compare to its innovation and functional prowess,” said Dr. Chase Cunningham, Threat Intel Lead at Firehost.

About Hawk Defense

HAWK Defense provides an innovative Big Data Security Analytics (BDSA) platform that allows enterprises make timely, well-informed security decisions from the ever-growing aggregations of logged data.

The eyeCon solution supports the security analyst a ‘single pane of glass’ with insight to indicators of compromise that were previously undetectable, support to validate, prioritize, and respond to increasingly sophisticated cyber threats. eyeCon technology is also used to ensure compliance with a myriad of mandates such as PCI DSS, NERC CIP, GLBA, FISMA, HIPAA, SOX and GPG 13.

IBM takes on enterprise cloud security

As organizations increasingly move their operations to the cloud, they need to remain vigilant against security breaches. IBM had this in mind as it prepared a new portfolio of services designed to help secure an enterprise’s cloud operations with the same rigor that has come to be expected with in-house operations.

“The move to the cloud is nothing new, but what we’re seeing now is that people are now considering moving critical workloads to the cloud,” said Marc van Zadelhoff, IBM vice president of strategy for security systems.

The Dynamic Cloud Security portfolio, available now, “allows customers to take security to the cloud with them,” Zadelhoff said.

The portfolio concentrates on aiding enterprises in three of areas of security: authenticating access in the cloud, protecting applications and data in the cloud, and improving visibility into the effectiveness of security controls watching over cloud resources.

Over 200 engineers helped build the portfolio over the past year. The services extend IBM’s collection of security software programs, such as QRadar security event management software and the Guardian data protection software, so they can be used to guard cloud resources as well.

Initially, the services will focus on securing resources on Amazon Web Services and IBM’s own SoftLayer cloud, though they can also be used with other cloud services as well, Zadelhoff said.

The portfolio includes a central portal that offers a summary of the state of security across all of an organization’s assets. Most security breaches can take weeks or even months to discover, IBM has estimated. The longer a breach goes undiscovered, the more damage an attacker can do. So a security portal can help identify problems as soon as they arise.

The IBM services can scan the applications being used in the cloud for potential vulnerabilities, and can alert developers or system administrators of any potential security weaknesses. They can identify sensitive data in the cloud, and then monitor that data for any unauthorized usage. Pricing is based on different services used, overall usage and other factors.

IBM itself already collects more than 20 billion daily security events in the course of its duties managing security for clients. This intelligence allows IBM to identify threats early on.

IBM has identified security as a growth market for the company. It has acquired 12 security companies in the past decade, and has invested over billion into security research, securing over 3,000 patents in this area.

In the field of cloud security, IBM will be competing against a wide variety of companies such as Symantec, Barracuda, Qualys, SafeNet, TrendMicro and WatchGuard—many of which have built up expertise in on-premise security products and services.
