  • We know that availability is important to IT, but how important is service availability in the cloud? If we look at recent history, the evidence is clear – availability matters in the cloud. There is no magic to the cloud, and it’s not a given that you can simply turn your cloud on and expect it to work flawlessly. Hardware fails. Networks fail. Even software fails! The cloud must be managed just like anything else in IT. There have recently been several high profile outages of public clouds recently. In some cases, there was no recourse for companies that relied on it to run their business. This represented a huge risk to these businesses, which went unmanaged until it caused damage. There are numerous other examples of cloud services experiencing severe challenges with availability. How can businesses trust their critical workloads to cloud environments? Sticking your head in the sand is not an option as the increased agility and cost benefits that cloud the cloud provides are increasingly leveraged as a competitive advantage.

  • Security and assurance framework – specifically mentioned collaboration with NIST to develop best practices and standards and endorsed the work being done on SCAP and FedRAMP
  • Our patented trusted reference technology is comprised of two major components:The Enterprise Trust Server sits inside your infrastructure to provide detailed auditing and configuration information on demand. It can provide reports on the IT inventory, report changes in software load or configuration and assess compliance against a number of different compliance templates. It compares its measurements against known good reference configurations.The enterprise trust server communicates with the second component, the global trust repository. The global trust repository is database of cryptographically derived signatures of over 2.8B unique code components. Because of the partner relationships we have in place, most of these signatures are derived directly from the sources and we have the largest database of known provenance software signatures available.These two components work together to provide complete and high fidelity visibility and control of your platform. You know what is running on your systems, where it came from, how it’s configured and if it’s been modified since it was deployed.This provides an extra layer of protection beyond traditional security tools, but also goes beyond security to provide you with explicit evidence and trust that your platforms are configured to your expectations.Protection against zero day attacks and advanced persistent threats.Some additional stats on the GTR & ETS:The Global Trust Repository is the largest collection of reference images provided directly from the vendor and continuously updated. The GTR is a cloud service providing known-provenance whitelist measurements of commercially available and open source software. The measurements are obtained via direct partnerships with many software vendors covering a broad range of operating systems, device drivers, third-party applications, and many other types of data representing the desired state of systems comprising IT business services. The GTR statistics as of June 2011:Current Product Count ~760,000Number of Vendors over 2,000+Microsoft Windows Platform Count ~100,000 packagesUnique Signature Count over 2.8 billion +Growing at ~5 million Signatures / DayThe Enterprise Trust Server (ETS) continuously monitors all active computing devices (network devices, servers, etc.) in the IT infrastructure, comparing the signatures for all the software and firmware installed in the devices to their reference configuration to the applicable signatures in the GTR and performs change detection to provide alerts of any unauthorized, unintended, or malicious, changes to the environment.

  • To ensure service levels are met, Operations must ensure the availability and performance of mission critical applications running in increasingly complex, hybrid data centers – to include enterprise, SaaS, and cloud applications. Where there is continuous change due to virtualization and cloud technologies, as well as business directives to rapidly deploy new features or applications, it’s critical to proactively monitor and assess the end user experience for critical user scenarios, and to assess the impact application and infrastructure changes may have on end user performance. You need the ability to actively monitor the end-user experience to establish a normal baseline of performance over time, so that you can quickly determine when changes adversely impact performance. BMC End User Experience Mgmt (EUEM) provides both real and synthetic end user monitoring. Real User Experience – The solution monitors real user performance and behavior in real-time, providing insight into how, from where, and when users access the application so that you can be aware of and effectively manage fluctuating user demands. Synthetic – The solution deploys a software ‘robot’, physically located at or near a service consumer population center or end-user site, which periodically runs simple interactive scripts (i.e., "synthetic transactions") against the application interface and records simple statistics, such as availability, response time, and accuracy. These transactions establish a performance baseline for critical transaction flows so that you can evaluate performance over time and quickly assess the impact of application changes on the performance of those key transactions.Thomson Reuters - Quickly interrogated TrueSight’s stored transaction data and drilled down to identify the root cause, well ahead of calls coming to the help deskFull set of widgetsReal-time gauges, A/B bar graphs, etcManage on aggregate, by location, by delivery network, by audience or by user. User-defined dashboardsFocus vertical (application) or horizontal (load)Import web contentSecure export to external portals
  • In the world of hybrid clouds, it’s not enough to simply manage performance within the datacenter. It’s critical to understand and manage the end-user’s experience with services that are provisioned to the public cloud. BMC ProactiveNet Performance Management can run in the data center, in a private cloud, or in the public cloud and provides a single pane of glass to manage the performance of business services coming from outside-in or inside-out.
  • Self-explanatorySpend some time highlighting the challenges in your customer’s IT environment – or in other customers you’ve seen. This is a chance to make this a personal discussion and open up any issues they might be experiencing
  • With real-time global dashboards, you can quickly assess user impact -- you can determine where users are coming from when they access your application, and where any problems are occurring right now

  • Security ≠ Trust
  • Delivering Explicit Trust: Positive Assurance Methods
    When the system needs to prove its integrity, it sends the collected measurements in a process called attestation.
    Before each subsequent level of the stack is loaded, it is measured by the preceding level and the result is stored in trusted hardware.
    Trust is established at the hardware level via Trusted Computing Group (TCG) defined standard methodologies (TPM, Integrity Management Model)
