Two things you need to know if you’re running a small to midsized business—and you don’t have a server
First, you are a prime candidate for data loss or theft. Small and midsized businesses—which are easier targets for cybercriminals than large enterprises—tend to store important data on individual devices, which are prone to being lost or stolen. Second, your employees need anywhere, anytime, any-device mobile access to apps, information, and collaboration tools so they can be more productive and grow your business.
HPE Flex Solutions for My First Server are built just for small businesses that need features such as centralized security and automated online data backup, along with a robust platform for collaboration.
Composable Infrastructure News
There have been some interesting activities starting to unravel in the industry in the Hyperconverged space with the “Partnering - non partnering” announcement of Cisco and Nutanix – check out this article from The Register. I have submitted an article about this as well in the upcoming Connect Converged quarterly, so look out for that. And I am sure I will be including more on this subject in next month’s eNews. Outside of that I have added a series of articles that I think will be of interest to you, all of which are related to either latest thinking on composable Infrastructure, Hyperconverged and HPE OneView converged management.
For this month I will end with a promotion for the HPE Discover London event that will be happening during the last week of November (9/29 – 12/1).

XYPRO - Breaches are from Mars, Security is from Venus
There is quite a large disconnect in the way security breaches are evolving versus how security solutions and resources are keeping up to address them, much like the book from John Gray covering relationships and the different motivations, of men and women. Unlike the book though, we’re not trying to come to a happy medium – we’re trying to keep the war like Mars at bay. As a security strategist, I’m constantly evaluating what is possible to help identify gaps and opportunities. The one thing I have learned over the course of my career is:
The only thing constant in cyber security is that attackers’ methods will continue to evolve. They get smarter, more resourceful and are impressively ever patient.

With Yuma, NonStop X Has Become a Full Software Solution
Businesses are increasingly excited about the HPE NonStop road map, with prospects for NonStop X running on anything with an x86 chip.
In recent years there has been an emergence of several new technologies to protect sensitive data, including Format Preserving Encryption (FPE) and Secure Stateless Tokenization (SST), such as those provided by HPE Security’s SecureData product. These products provide excellent capabilities to assist HPE NonStop users in protecting data within their application environments. Both HPE FPE and HPE SST provide strong protection against the exposure of sensitive data but they should not be used alone or to replace traditional access controls. Data protection methods such as FPE and SST need to be carefully considered and planned alongside traditional access controls to ensure all application data is comprehensively protected both from authorized and unauthorized exposure.
