While most Councils and Government Departments have stringent backup procedures in place, the majority (96%) have no method or procedure to backup their Microsoft Office 365 Deployment, according to a recent FOI request from Cloud to Cloud Backup specialists UK Backup.
Freedom of Information Requests were sent to all of the listed Public Sector users of Microsoft Office 365; with a high proportion of responses. Managing Director of UK Backup, James Chillman, says that a frightening 96% have no procedure in place for protecting their email environment.
“Councils and Government Departments are ultimately responsible for protecting their data, regardless of where that data resides. While SaaS Email providers such as Google Apps and Microsoft Office 365, generally do a good job of backing up your data; their backups are for their benefit, not yours. If you need to recover deleted data, for example, purged email from several months or years ago to be used as legal evidence – You might find that your provider is unable or unwilling to help.”
We’re only a few weeks into 2017, so it is natural to ponder what the new year will bring. For many industries, it’s uncertain what the future holds. For marketing, however, it is clear cut. Based on the last half of 2016, companies have shifted their focus and begun taking advantage of powerful technologies that had largely been ignored (even though customers use them every day). In 2017, mobile marketing will rise to the top.
Up until recently, mobile development was a costly endeavor far beyond the reach of most small businesses. But a new era has emerged because of three key market developments: the adoption of mobile by major brands, the increase in companies built around Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), and, finally, the innovation of cost efficient platforms that allow financial feasibility.
First, major companies have begun using mobile technology as a form of marketing. While some create unique and compelling content that is entirely their own; others have partnered with major digital players to take advantage of their technology and market potential. Either way, apps are at the core of this revolution.
Although I retired last year from writing stories solely focused on content management systems, I still have a few of my favorites that I like to keep an eye on. One of those favorites is DNN which back in the day we once called DotNetNuke. Less than a year ago, DNN brought to market Evoq 8 which addressed modern day marketing needs for better customer engagement. Last week, DNN showed the industry the ongoing evolution of its product line through Evoq 9. The new release continue's DNN's journey to be more than CMS company as it reaches beyond websites to apps, devices, and other Internet of Things.
According to Gartner, SaaS (Software as a Service) solutions are expected to grow a further 20.3% in 2016 to $37.7 billion, which is just a fraction of the 16.5% predicted growth for the whole public cloud service industry, from $175 billion in 2015 to $203.9 billion in 2016.
The ‘cloud’ is a term that’s used pretty freely nowadays, with varying degrees of accuracy. In a nutshell, anything cloud refers to ‘cloud computing’, the process of sharing internet-based data to any other device, from any other location.

Hamburg, Germany. 10 November 2016 - After the biggest DDoS attack of all time was reported in late September, cyber-criminals wasted no time in mounting their next operation. Less than a month later, a further broad-based attack crashed major online services including Twitter, Spotify, Netflix and PayPal. As before, a large number of smart devices connected via the internet of things (IoT) were hijacked to mount the attack. They included everything from video recorders to home-based routers and manipulated webcams. These crimes are becoming more and more frequent, demonstrating that cyber-criminals have understood that the huge number of smart devices has the potential to cause major damage. After all, most connected devices are almost (or even completely) unprotected. This is why companies and individuals need to rethink the way they protect their devices. They need a strategic approach that starts from the internet itself - not the device.
The industry’s first NFV-enabled UDR now validated on Mirantis OpenStack
REDWOOD CITY, Calif – October 25 2016 – Openwave Mobility, a software innovator enabling operators to manage and monetize encrypted mobile data, today announced a collaboration with Mirantis, the pure play OpenStack company. Openwave Mobility’s Subscriber Data Management (SDM) solution, vUDR, has been validated within the Mirantis OpenStack environment.
Openwave Mobility vUDR is the industry’s first NFV-enabled User Data Repository (UDR) and has been deployed by several tier one operators globally to manage subscriber profile data across voice and data networks. UDR solutions are critical for virtualized networks as they help decouple applications that have awareness of subscribers from IT provisioning systems. This increases the speed and flexibility of virtualized applications and dramatically cuts provisioning time for new subscriber services.
Learning from the past, taking security seriously and protecting the consumer must be at the heart of developing propositions for the Internet of Things (IoT) because it’s all about personal data, Greenwave Systems’ Chief Scientist advised today.
Speaking at the Broadband World Forum, Jim Hunter told the packed show floor that the real opportunity in the Internet is in connecting it with people; being able to put individual pieces of data about people’s lives into context to make it meaningful.
In his presentation titled “The Internet of Things about you: Evolving from data to content and what you can do”, Hunter went on to warn the audience that while pieces of data in isolation might be harmless, once they’re put together and a picture is formed, the information gained could be dangerous if it fell into the wrong hands.
