Mr. Steve Lazerowich, Director, Cybersecurity Solutioning, HP Enterprise Services, U.S. Public Sector, told us, "Today, there is simply no way to provide 100% protection. As events have recently shown, it's not just the bad guys on the outside trying to gain access to your information; organizations must also be mindful of the insider threat. The best approach is defense in depth, or in other words, a multi-layered approach to protecting systems. It starts at the outer most perimeter with firewalls and network intrusion prevention systems. Systems need to be segregated on separate network segments so that a failure in one area does not expose all systems. Servers also need their own end point protection including host intrusion detection, malware protection, data encryption and white listing technology."

Mr. Ryan Skipp, T-Systems International GMBH, Portfolio & Solution Design - IT, Applications & Portfolio Architecture, told us, "T-Systems as an Outsourcer has to provide base infrastructure services which meet the cost and quality expectations that a company transitioning to outsourced services would expect -- better than they as an end-user could produce, with better quality, and lower cost! In order to achieve that, T-Systems was one of the first Outsourcers to produce a 'Cloud' platform, based on highly shared leveraged infrastructure, and with a number of pre-defined applications on top of that. Today we have enhanced that infrastructure, and wrapped the Cloud functionality into it, all the way up to self-service (to application level) for our Private Cloud clients."
