Yet in the survey of 1,368 organizations 57 percent of those surveyed had no multi-cloud strategy at all. Similarly, 35 percent had no private cloud strategy, and 28 percent had no public cloud strategy ...

By the time an incident like this is brought under control, the company may have lost on average as much as $750,000 for a 90-minute outage. Ask these 5 questions before moving forward with a monitoring solution that can address application outages ...

Whether it's due to a steady uptick in the number of images, complicated JavaScript, or other plugins (all part of a push toward eye-catching pages), many sites are slow to load and need far too much time before users can interact with them. That's one of the key findings in Radware's 2016 State of the Union report on multi-industry web performance ...
