    REPORT: The Software-Defined Data Center Comes Of Age

    Landscape: The Infrastructure Transformation Playbook

    October 30, 2017Richard Fichera, Chris Gardner

    Traditional data center thinking has ended. Better automation tools, container abstractions, software-defined networks (SDNs), and composable infrastructure have ushered in unprecedented abstraction, yielding the software-defined data center (SDDC). The impact of the SDDC is immense, offering an opportunity to integrate legacy architectures, cloud, and workload-centric architectures into a single automation domain. This report helps infrastructure and operations (I&O) professionals understand this vision and defines the current state, opportunity, and emerging vendor landscape of the SDDC. This is an update of a previously published report; Forrester reviews and updates it periodically for continued relevance and accuracy.

    REPORT: Vendor Landscape: Runtime Application Self-Protection

    Protect Your Imperfect Code Until It Can Be Fixed

    September 29, 2017 Amy DeMartine

    Even with the best prerelease security testing, developers will never write perfectly secure code. Zero-day attacks will continue to target vulnerable open source components, third-party applications, and internally developed code. Web application firewalls provide a helpful protection against such attacks; however, they can only analyze input and output data. Used as a deeper layer of application defense, runtime application self-protection (RASP) tools use insider info of the applications they protect to help security pros more effectively detect and deflect malicious attacks.
