IronPort’s Multilayer Spam Defense Architectural Overview


Earlier-generation spam systems all share a common weakness—they rely heavily on analyzing content that can easily be manipulated by spammers. As such, state-of-the-art antispam systems must go beyond content examination by analyzing messages in the full context in which they are sent. Find out how using a multilayer defense approach can help you successfully eliminate spam and blended threats in your enterprise.

Adopting Service-oriented Architecture Increases the Flexibility of Your Enterprise


Time was, information technology (IT) systems lasted much longer. Organizational restructuring was uncommon, as business did not really require it. However, with ever-shrinking business cycles, IT must now be capable of quickly adapting to changing business needs. That’s why present-day IT systems must be built to change—and services-oriented architecture (SOA) may just hold the key.

architectural  SOA refers to an architectural strategy to help achieve business-IT alignment, by adopting a three-dimensional perspective of the enterprise namely, technology, people and processes (Figure 1). SOA facilitates implementation of business functionality as a set of well-governed, standards-based, loosely-coupled services and processes, defined in a flexible and agile manner. SOA is an architectural strategy that helps achieve tighter Business-IT alignment by taking a three dimensional perspective of the Read More

The Art And Science Of IT Architecture Design

Architecture-Centered Information Systems In The Manufacturing Domain - Part II - The Architecture Process


Architecture bridges the semantic gap between the requirements and software. Application software systems must be architected in order to deal with the current and future needs of the business organization. Managing software projects using architecture-centered methodologies must be an intentional step in the process of deploying information systems — not an accidental by-product of the software acquisition and integration process.

architectural  focuses on applying the architectural principles to the components of the methodology. There are steps in the methodology that are not addressed in Figure 2. Although these steps may be impacted by architecture they are secondary to the Requirements Analysis, Technical System Design, System Development, and System Deployment. Figure 2. Details of the methodology and its relationship to system architecture. Methodology for the SRA The System Requirements Analysis (SRA) includes the discovery of the Read More
