Aberdeen Group Publishes Two New IT Security Research Reports

Research Examines Strategic Managed File Transfer, Fighting Fraud With Big Data Intelligence

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Oct 15, 2013) -  Aberdeen Group, a Harte-Hanks Company (NYSE: HHS), today announced the publication of two new new research reports -- "Seeing Managed File Transfer as Strategic: Business Users Need Full Visibility" and "Fighting Fraud by Acquiring Intelligence with a Purpose" -- by Derek Brink, vice president and research fellow for Aberdeen's IT Security and IT GRC research practice.

In today's information-driven economy, managed file transfer is tied even more closely with the achievement of the critical business objectives of collaboration and integration of business processes, and mechanisms to assure file delivery are by themselves not enough -- business users also need greater visibility into what's happening throughout the file movement process. "Seeing Managed File Transfer as Strategic: Business Users Need Full Visibility" illustrates how visibility correlates not only with fewer errors, but also with reducing the time to deal with exceptions when they do occur -- thus helping organizations to carry out their business processes in the most efficient, uninterrupted manner.

"Fighting Fraud by Acquiring Intelligence with a Purpose" notes that solutions for "big data" intelligence and analytics tend to emphasize the ability to integrate data from disparate sources, in disparate data formats. But intelligence should not be acquired just for the sake of integrating more data; the strategic focus should be on acquiring intelligence with a purpose. Aberdeen's analysis of companies that use intelligence and analytics in their initiatives to fight fraud found that in addition to the foundation of acquiring intelligence, three important high-level themes characterize the leaders: rapid discovery, flexible investigation, and global sharing.
