Where the Cloud Touches Down: Simplifying Data Center Infrastructure Management

Thursday, July 25, 2013
10:00 AM PT/1:00 PM ET

In most data centers, DCIM rests on a shaky foundation of manual record keeping and scattered documentation. OpManager replaces data center documentation with a single repository for data, QRCodes for asset tracking, accurate 3D mapping of asset locations, and a configuration management database (CMDB). In this webcast, sponsored by ManageEngine, you will see how a real-world datacenter mapping stored in racktables gets imported into OpManager, which then provides a 3D visualization of where assets actually are. You'll also see how the QR Code generator helps you make the link between real assets and the monitoring world, and how the layered CMDB provides a single point of view for all your configuration data.

Kaspersky And Sophos Top Security Vendor Survey

One way to do that is to do a better job of managing large, installed bases of clients. But that's where the likes of Symantec and McAfee excelled.

It should come as little surprise then that the report stated the top brand-name vendors still dominate the IT department's radar, which indicates that the breadth of product line is important.

That doesn't suggest the likes of Symantec and McAfee can rest on their laurels however. In fact, the report goes on to state though Symantec and McAfee are most prevalent in IT shops they are, "badly lagging their seven competitors on both acquisition and operational cost". However, it would be foolhardy to completely write these top-tier security vendors off as inflated or ineffective. Of the three vendors respondents use or have used or evaluated in the past 12 months, 42 percent said Symantec and 36 percent said McAfee.

"They're doing a very respectable job. I wouldn't say they're doing a terrible job," Marko says. "The larger and more diverse your organization, you're likely less concerned with pure A/V scanning performance or impact on system performance and more concerned with using the same vendor.

"They obviously have the market share that they do for a reason."
