Why cloud video will become the norm in security

Why cloud video will become the norm in security

It’s only a matter of when, not if, cloud will become the de facto backbone for surveillance deployments

It’s inevitable that cloud will eventually become the default storage method for video surveillance in the professional security industry. What’s more difficult to judge is when this change will take place.

Cloud Migration: Six Things To Check Early On To Avoid Pitfalls In The Long Run

Cloud Migration: Six Things To Check Early On To Avoid Pitfalls In The Long Run

Almost $42 billion was spent worldwide on cloud infrastructure services in Q1 of 2021. Digital transformation has accelerated organizations’ paths to the cloud, completely changing the way of conducting business and allowing them to launch new software products faster and go global.

Is Security Better in the Cloud or On-Prem?

Is Security Better in the Cloud or On-Prem?

With the constant drubbing of companies by ransomware gangs, IT security should be at the forefront of every executive’s mind. Thus far, that hasn’t necessarily resulted in action. Chances are, no matter what company you work for, security could be better. And that begs the question: is your environment safer in the cloud, or on-prem?

Why companies get stuck in the middle of their DevOps journey

Why companies get stuck in the middle of their DevOps journey

The 10th State of Devops report by automation software vendor Puppet shows that the vast majority of organizations are still stuck in the mid-evolution phase, with organizational and cultural factors remaining the big blockers to enterprise-wide success.

The vast majority of organizations are mired in the middle of their devops journey, according to the 2021 State of Devops report by automation software vendor Puppet, which surveyed 2,657 technical professionals around the world about their continued adoption of devops and agile practices.

Security And Compliance Tools And Strategies For The Cloud

Cloud security is the top barrier to cloud adoption. It needs to be approached differently from traditional data center solutions. Likewise, companies that have already adopted cloud technologies are also struggling with security. According to Gartner, 75% of security failures will result from inadequate management of identities, access and privileges by 2023, up from 50% in 2020.

Getting Unstuck: How To Sustain Digital Transformation Momentum

Getting Unstuck: How To Sustain Digital Transformation Momentum

Numerous reports exclaim that Covid-19 has accelerated digital transformation, and there’s every indication that this trend will continue for the foreseeable future. Transforming to the cloud forms the foundation of this digital transformation and the benefits of doing so are abundantly clear. Cloud transformation helps enable greater agility, lowers capital expenses, enhances collaboration and can increase security. But for each organization advancing their cloud strategies, there is one stalled in the starting blocks.

Integration Infrastructure Management

Integration Infrastructure Management

IT is changing at an ever-accelerating pace. Moores Law used to be the principle by which we considered the evolving performance/cost of computing, but today this seems to be less useful, instead, we need a model that considers how many layers of systems do we manage. Maybe a model that considers the geometric relationship between systems and how they integrate may be a more useful predictor of growth.

Confidential Computing: The Future of Cloud Computing Security

Confidential Computing: The Future of Cloud Computing Security

Two years ago, a group of tech companies introduced a new roadmap for cloud computing security. Confidential computing “uses hardware-based techniques to isolate data, specific functions, or an entire application from the operating system, hypervisor or virtual machine manager, and other privileged processes,” says IEEE Spectrum. So, what sets this apart from other digital defense efforts? How does it work?

Integration Engineering Costs and Complexity will continue to grow as businesses move to software configured virtualized environments (the cloud)

Integration Engineering Costs and Complexity will continue to grow as businesses move to software configured virtualized environments (the cloud)

The problems of the past did not go away, they just continue to grow in complexity as environments grow. There is a mathematical, formula that shows that as the number of sub-components grows then the number of interconnections that must be managed grow at an exponential or even geometric rate. When you add more components into an environment, each component interacts with the other component.

We live in a cloud connected world

We live in a cloud-connected world

Your strategy is to move everything to software configured and cloud-connected existence. I can say this with absolute confidence because quite frankly this is everyone’s strategy in 2021.

With cloud thinking, every decision becomes an operational choice without the historical lags previously associated with massive capital changes. With cloud thinking, every team can spin up a new test environment and try out their ideas without needing to implement infrastructure, platforms, and applications, instead they go to an app store, learn what is available, spend a couple of hours reading and watching videos and they configure their ideas into a process to try.
