Operations Manager to Operations Bridge Evolution Program

Are you using Operations Manager? Did you know we have a program offering a free upgrade to Operations Bridge Premium?

Operations Manager was originally built 25 years ago and was state of the art, it solved the problems of the day. A tribute to its design is that it still provides value today with consolidated event and performance management. 

As our industry matures new capabilities are required. Understanding IT's impact on the business requires service driven operations. That requires using all data types - metrics, events, logs, and topology from all your tools, and having adaptive event management - all with a view of business impact.

IT Process Automation (AKA RPA) is also a requirement to increase efficiency and allow you to do more with less. This includes automated monitoring - detecting resources, and starting and stopping monitoring as necessary. Further automated remediation is important, one user has automated 94% of repetitive tasks giving his team back over 20,000 hours and the company over $1 million annually.

Analytics, AIOps, is also a huge competitive advantage today, predicting issues before business impact where possible and speeding RCA in the remaining cases.

Hybrid IT is here, survey’s show over 80% of organizations are already using hybrid cloud, and this brings other requirements.

Operations Bridge was built for these new requirements and this program will help you move.

Announcing File Dynamics 6.2  

An expanded emphasis on data growth, automation, compliance, security, and protection are all contributing to evolving requirements for data management. To meet the dynamic demands of today’s organizations, Micro Focus offers File Dynamics, an identity- and target-driven policy approach to today’s network data management challenges.

With File Dynamics, you have the means to not only automate the provisioning, day-to-day management, archiving, and disposal of user and group network storage, but to manage all other unstructured data on the network. Additionally, File Dynamics provides the means to secure data through remediation and notification as well as protect data through point-in-time data recovery.

New to File Dynamics 6.2:

· Storage Resources Scoping. The Storage Resources panel in the Admin Client now contains an interface for the configuration of Storage Resource scoping. Providing a scope for Storage Resources can greatly improve the time to discover and rebuild the Storage Resources database.

· Client-based Directory Services and File System Access. All navigation and listing of Active Directory and live file system entries in the Admin Client are now performed directly by the Admin Client, using the logged-on user’s credentials. Prior versions of the client redirected these requests through the Engine, using the user’s authenticated credentials.


Announcing new releases for File Governance Suite: File Reporter 3.6 and File Dynamics 6.2   

The Micro Focus File Governance Suite is a full set of file governance tools to help you address data governance challenges in your Microsoft Windows network. Comprising Micro Focus File Reporter and Micro Focus File Dynamics, the File Governance Suite lets you know what files you’re storing, their relevancy, who has access to them, if any contain personal or confidential information that needs to be secured, and much more. Then it lets you establish policies that can manage, secure, and even recover your data.

Micro Focus File Reporter 3.6 inventories network file systems and delivers the detailed file storage intelligence you need to optimize and secure your network for efficiency and compliance. Engineered for enterprise file system reporting, File Reporter gathers data across the millions of files and folders scattered among the various network storage devices that make up your network. Flexible reporting, filtering, querying, and content analysis options then present the exact findings you need so that you can demonstrate compliance or take corrective action.

Micro Focus File Dynamics 6.2 provides extensive services to address the expanding requirements of network data management. Identity-driven policies automate tasks that are traditionally done manually, resulting in cost savings and assurance that tasks are being performed properly. Target-driven policies offer data migration and relocation, cleanup, notification of changes to access permissions, and protection from data corruption and downtime.



ArcSight Community Initiatives on GitHub

The ArcSight community is currently working on several interesting open source initiatives. This includes building new features, adding new documentation for the portfolio from Software Development Kits, and much more. You can receive notifications on new releases and projects by following the project on GitHub!

New Security webinar library  – Check out our new Security webinar library on BrightTALK! Log in with your BrightTALK credentials or register for free.

Webinar: How Proven AI Accelerates Your App CompetitivenessAs application vendors race to put artificial intelligence into their products to deliver differentiating value, they are often faced with the choice of whether to invest in homegrown technology. In this case, it is critical to holistically evaluate a partnership beyond just the technology itself to ensure sustainable success. Join this webinar on 1 May to learn about key criteria for evaluating an OEM partner, how Micro Focus addresses those criteria, and key resources for developers

Webinar: Micro Focus SecOps Innovation: A look into the future of security insights Join product and solution leaders from Micro Focus and partner Deloitte on 15 May to learn about the core capabilities required for successful SecOps within a modern landscape, including the latest innovations to support digital transformation roadmaps. Hear more about the future of ArcSight, see examples of successful customer journeys, and get an introduction to Interset for UEBA, our newest advanced analytics acquisition.

Webinar: Data protection: Your biggest reputational risk? Your corporate reputation is one of your greatest assets, taking years to build and only minutes to lose. So what’s the best way to protect it? Learn how you can safeguard your hard-won reputation against both internal and external threats and protect one of your biggest reputational risks: your data.

Webinar: Discover Key Shifts in the Privacy and Data Protection Environment There is a lot more data at risk today than there has been in the past. The explosion of personal data being collected, harnessed, and used means that companies have to be increasingly aware of how they manage it. Additionally, there has been an expansion of global requirements such as the GDPR, California's CCPA law, and Brazil's LGPD law.

Webinar: Ensure Privacy Protection through your Digital Transformation Privacy represents a major challenge for the modern enterprise. The flexibility of hybrid IT and insights of data analytics are essential to the business. But the digital transformation that is key to business success and competitive advantage is also a major vulnerability when it comes to data privacy. Organizations are rightfully concerned about CCPA, GDPR, PIPEDA, and the growing number of regulations now being enacted, which means they need to figure out how to reduce their risk. But current privacy protection approaches fall short. What’s needed is a unified technology framework that lets you take a holistic, analytics-driven approach to securing what matters most—a framework flexible enough to meet the needs of your enterprise, but specific enough to offer a guide to risk reduction. Join us for this informative webinar to discover why Micro Focus is a leader in providing this solution.

Webinar: Close the Gap in Your Ransomware Defense Ransomware is a global epidemic that is spreading like wildfire. The FBI estimates that ransomware infects more than 100,000 computers a day around the world. Join this webinar to learn about ransomware challenges and impact, why malware detection alone is not enough, and how to close the gap with holistic endpoint data and device management.

Webinar: Anatomy of a BreachCyber breaches have almost doubled in the past five years, according to the World Economic Forum, which now lists cyberattacks as third on its list of top global risks. But how can organizations keep pace, keep secure? There needs to be a plan. One of the clearest, most comprehensive, flexible, and highly regarded approaches to cybersecurity is the framework devised by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). This webinar provides an overview of market trends facing organizations as they venture into a digital transformation and how they can make their digital transformation secure by employing the NIST framework to strengthen every facet of their organization’s defenses against a breach.
