Digital technology has radically transformed our world. Tablets, smartphones, and web-enabled devices have radically changed our daily lives and the way we communicate. The healthcare industry is sensibly trying to balance between innovation and patients’ privacy.

When considering cloud-based solution especially in the healthcare industry, it is crucial to separate fact from fiction. Here are few myths that continue to misdirect and misguide the cloud discussion in keeping health records on cloud-based storage systems.

Magnolia just launched Magnolia Now and Magnolia Core

Magnolia, the rapidly growing Swiss CMS vendor, launched an innovative new solution - Magnolia Now™, a cloud-based digital experience platform - at its seventh annual conference in Basel, Switzerland on June 8-9. Magnolia Now takes the hassle out of the deployment and operations of content management and gives companies the ability to go to market fast. It will be available from November 2016 in a variety of packages.

“Magnolia Now opens an entirely new market for us,” said CEO Pascal Mangold. “While Magnolia Core™ remains the most flexible enterprise CMS on the market, not every customer has the means to utilize its power to its full extent. Magnolia Now takes the key functionalities of Magnolia Core and packs that up into the cloud. Not only does that free DX projects from the IT bottleneck typically found in organizations today, but it also ensures the fastest time to market for digital experience projects, a critical issue for organizations today."

Cloud is not coming, it has arrived!

Migrate to Cloud

Cloud is no longer difficult for people to understand, express or accept. There were initial regulations and what not’s that did not make it through for cloud computing to become the stable of almost 95% of enterprise consumers.

If one looks at how everything started, thing were not looking good for cloud. The first and most basic issue for cloud computing was to make sense of the benefits they had to offer.

For those who did not understand that cloud was working in their benefit against a home grown full-fledged operation that runs through fully owned server farms. It was still difficult to explain how their data remained safe. Data sensitive domains such as government run businesses steered clear of cloud. However that too has changed. Why did that change transpire? Well it could have been because common sense prevailed.

Neustar's Third DDoS Survey Finds Attacks Unrelenting in 2015

Neustar logo

STERLING, Va. -- April 26, 2016; Neustar, Inc., a trusted, neutral provider of real-time information services, today released the findings from its third global DDoS Attacks and Protection Report titled The Threatscape Widens: DDoS Aggression and the Evolution of IoT Risks. The April 2016 report follows a survey of over 1,000 IT professionals across six continents, and reveals that few organizations globally are being spared DDoS attacks. With the bombardment fairly constant throughout 2015, it is no longer a matter of if or when attacks might happen, but how often and how long the attack will last. Faced with this ongoing onslaught, the report demonstrates that increasingly DDoS-defense savvy organizations are now arming themselves accordingly.

The research results show that although revenue loss caused by a DDoS related outage is usually the main concern, 57% of all breaches involved some sort of theft including intellectual property and customer data as well as financial information. More troubling, following the initial breach, 45% of organizations reported the installation of a virus or malware - a sign that attackers are interested in causing ongoing harm.

The research highlights that although DDoS attack tactics continue to evolve from single large attacks intended to take a website offline to the multi-vector attacks we are seeing today, organizations are fighting back. The good news is 76% of companies are investing more in DDoS protection than in 2014 and 47% of the attacked organizations are participating in security consortiums to share information on threats and counter measures.
