Ipswitch Survey Reveals IT Teams in a Battle for File Transfer Security

LONDON, UK. – February 4, 2016 – Given the increase in threats and vulnerabilities introduced to the market on a daily basis, the process of moving company data securely is critical to the role of IT teams. Today, Ipswitch announced the findings of their new survey that evaluated the current file transfer solutions and policies in place for 555 IT professionals across the globe. The survey found that while IT teams believe secure file transfers are very important to their organizations, they lack the necessary tools to do so.

Key findings included:

  • While 76 percent of IT professionals said that being able to securely transfer and share files internally and externally is very important, 61 percent said that unsecure cloud-file sharing services like Dropbox are being used within their organizations.
  • 32 percent of IT professionals said that they do not have a file transfer policy in place, but 25 percent plan to integrate one. A quarter (25 percent) of IT professionals said that their organizations have file transfer technology policies in place but indicated that enforcement is inconsistent.
  • 21 percent of IT professionals said they may have experienced a data breach or suffered data loss but are not sure. More than a third (38 percent) of IT professionals said their processes to identify and mitigate file transfer risk are not efficient.
  • Less than half (46 percent) of IT professional respondents said that they have a Managed File Transfer (MFT) solution in place.

Infographic: Your Slow Website Costs You Money

How your slow website burns a hole in your pocket

John Stevens over at Hosting Facts posted an article and infographic that should interest website owners. Basically it comes down to this: the negatives of a slow website are too significant for you to ignore. Slow website speed have real impacts impacts on customer satisfaction. In technical terms, your conversions and advertising revenues can go down steadily without an active formulation of your website speed.

The implosion process is so gradual that your initial assessment revolves around the areas of deficiency in your services or attributing it to a weaker product. Prospects percentage dip and the existing chunk of your customers don’t bring you additional leads.

In such a scenario, customer outreach and feedback becomes all the more important as a visibility in their ordinary website experience can be easily seen.

Not alarmingly, we came across numerous surveys, outlining some startling facts, but coming out with the similar results, which we thought we should essentially share with you. 

In the infographic provided by John there are some critical facts that you might want to pay attention to. Additional information can be found at the Hosting Facts website.

Kentico Survey Says: Interest in Smartwatches is on the Rise

Over two and half years ago, I wrote that wearables would be the next "disruptive innovation" but acknowledged we're not there yet. Once the right company with the right design comes along, this new market will take off just as fast as when Apple introduced their first iPad. Despite Apple introducing their smartwatch, I still sit on the sidelines waiting for the right wearable to convince me the time to buy one is now. According to the findings from a recent survey unveiled by Kentico, I'm not alone.

When people reuse and recycle things, they are seen as environmental warriors. But when content marketers repurpose content, are they just being lazy? A big NO.

Every single piece of content that we consume online is a product of someone’s genius, creativity, and time. Content creation is not for everyone. Creating content that is relevant and creative remains one of the greatest challenges that marketers face, the Content Marketing Institute said in a study [pdf]. It’s not only about finding the right topic or inspiration, but also finding the time and pulling all resources. A recent survey by TechValidate reported that 43% of content marketing professionals take four to six weeks before their teams or organizations can come up with a content strategy that works.

Tech for the Hungry: Why Technology is Key for Feeding the World

What a great irony it is that we live in a world where there is more than enough food to feed all seven billion people, yet statistics show that 870 million people go hungry every year. One person out of every nine lacks the daily nutritional requirements to “be healthy and lead an active life.” At this point, ending world hunger depends not on getting more food, but on improving technologies that identify where it is needed most, and get it distributed there quickly and efficiently. New big data technologies such as cassandra vs hadoop are saving impoverished, starving populations especially in eastern, central, and southern Africa. Research shows that half of those in need are in Asia and the Pacific, and another quarter are on the African continent.

Data Warehouse Optimization with Apache Hadoop

Apache Hadoop Open Source Data Warehouse Architecture

For the past few years, we have heard a lot about the benefits of augmenting the Enterprise Data Warehouse with Hadoop. The Data Warehouse vendors as well as the Hadoop vendors are showcasing how Hadoop can handle unstructured data while the EDW will continue to remain as the central source in an enterprise.

The Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW) is a standard component of a corporate data architecture because it provides valuable business insights and powerful decision analytics for front-line workers, executives, business analysts, data scientists, and software developers. The Enterprise Data Warehouse built using Teradata, Oracle, DB2 or other DBMS is undergoing a revolutionary change. As the sources of data become rich and diverse, storing them in a traditional EDW is not the optimal solution. Big data technologies such as Apache Hadoop excel at managing large volumes of unstructured data and are coming into mainstream use, by integrating with existing legacy Data Warehouse platforms to get the best of both worlds.
