Ongoing mobile advancements have influenced and reshaped the way modern retailers conduct business. As new innovations continue to arrive on the store floor, IT must ensure they positively impact business results and reduce expenditures while keeping customers happy and their data secure.

Making the Most from Mobile in Retail

IT leaders can jump-start their success with their business transformation goals by understanding:

  • Top priorities and hurdles to overcome in 2017
  • Ways that devices can improve customer satisfaction
  • Suitability of bring your own device (BYOD) on store floors
  • Mobile apps and their impact on training, tactics and transactions
  • The critical role of unified endpoint management (UEM) in managing mobile devices, laptops, IoT and other disparate device types

Displaying key findings from the Mobility Trends in the Retail Sector research report prepared by Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) and IBM, this infographic affords valuable context to retail organizations in planning a better tomorrow.



In our upcoming webinar, we’ll take a deeper dive into each of these categories with guest speaker, Mark Bowker, Senior Analyst at ESG. You’ll walk away with a reliable game plan for future success with your in-store employees, their customers and the devices that they rely on to keep your business booming.

The Needs of a Modernized SOC for Hybrid Cloud

5 min read - Cybersecurity has made a lot of progress over the last ten years. Improved standards (e.g., MITRE), threat intelligence, processes and technology have significantly helped improve visibility, automate information gathering (SOAR) and many manual tasks. Additionally, new analytics (UEBA/SIEM) and endpoint (EDR) technologies can detect and often stop entire classes of threats. Now we are seeing the emergence of technologies such as attack surface management (ASM), which are starting to help organisations get more proactive and focus their efforts for maximum…

X-Force Identifies Vulnerability in IoT Platform

4 min read - The last decade has seen an explosion of IoT devices across a multitude of industries. With that rise has come the need for centralized systems to perform data collection and device management, commonly called IoT Platforms. One such platform, ThingsBoard, was the recent subject of research by IBM Security X-Force. While there has been a lot of discussion around the security of IoT devices themselves, there is far less conversation around the security of the platforms these devices connect with.…

X-Force Prevents Zero Day from Going Anywhere

8 min read - This blog was made possible through contributions from Fred Chidsey and Joseph Lozowski. The 2023 X-Force Threat Intelligence Index shows that vulnerability discovery has rapidly increased year-over-year and according to X-Force’s cumulative vulnerability and exploit database, only 3% of vulnerabilities are associated with a zero day. X-Force often observes zero-day exploitation on Internet-facing systems as a vector for initial access however, X-Force has also observed zero-day attacks leveraged by attackers to accomplish their goals and objectives after initial access was…

Patch Tuesday -> Exploit Wednesday: Pwning Windows Ancillary Function Driver for WinSock (afd.sys) in 24 Hours

12 min read - ‘Patch Tuesday, Exploit Wednesday’ is an old hacker adage that refers to the weaponization of vulnerabilities the day after monthly security patches become publicly available. As security improves and exploit mitigations become more sophisticated, the amount of research and development required to craft a weaponized exploit has increased. This is especially relevant for memory corruption vulnerabilities.Figure 1 — Exploitation timelineHowever, with the addition of new features (and memory-unsafe C code) in the Windows 11 kernel, ripe new attack surfaces can…
