  • Kidson: Worried about data in the cloud? With no crypto management, not worth it

    The cloud is an attractive business proposition for many. But time and time again, companies express concerns about how secure their information is in the cloud. Security is the biggest inhibitor of organizations moving their precious data to the cloud in the first place. Issues arise such as data co-mingling, privileged user abuse, snapshots and backups, data deletion, data leakage and geographic regulatory requirements.

  • Smart Wearables and Cloud Security: The Rise of Mobile Malware

    Smart Wearables and Cloud Security: The Rise of Mobile Malware

    When you look at the greatest technological advances of the past several decades, it's clear that software has taken the lead. While hardware continues to improve, get smaller and do more with less, it's software that has enabled feature-rich operating systems that can exist on an interface barely larger than your hand. Hardware has maintained a more or less consistent form. It's no wonder then that many corporations are still painfully in the dark ages when it comes to the increase in the BYOD ecosystem. As the new Apple Watch and other smart watches begin to hit the scene, it's going to become increasingly difficult for network engineers to keep company networks secure. Even The Federal Trade Commission has warned about the threats posed by these small, connected devices stating that the data they collect should be limited for security reasons.

    When new hardware does come onto the scene, it's widely talked about and speculated upon. Google Glass has failed to catch on so far, but the Apple Watch is likely to spur growth in the smartwatch industry and encourage other manufacturers to create their own versions. Google's Android Wear selection has already entered the market with good success. However, the Apple Watch is likely to be the most popular new piece of hardware introduced in 2015. A boon for Apple, and a virtual nightmare for IT administrators.

  • Moving to the Cloud? Take a Deep Dive for Full Benefit

    Moving to the Cloud? Take a Deep Dive for Full Benefit

    It’s likely clear to most companies by now that any realistic view of the future of the business world involves cloud computing in some way. It’s difficult to ignore the variety of benefits that come from adopting the cloud, including more productivity from employees, more business agility, and, of course, significant cost savings. Even with these advantages in mind, many companies still feel a reluctance to make the cloud part of their operations. A move to the cloud is certainly a significant change, one which should not be considered lightly. While many of these reluctant businesses won’t dispute the benefits of cloud computing, they may have trouble seeing how to maximize those benefits to make such a transition worth it. The answer is to take a “deep dive” into the cloud.
