IoT Security: IoT Needn’t Be the Internet of Threats

IoT Security: IoT Needn’t Be the Internet of Threats

According to a 2020 report by Palo Alto Networks, 98% of IoT data traffic is unencrypted. This statistic is mind boggling given what we know about the risks. To appreciate the scope of this problem, it is vital to understand encryption is only a single link in a long chain needed to secure IoT, data, and our world.

Why data storage isn’t a ‘one size fits all’ solution for IoT

Why data storage isn’t a ‘one size fits all’ solution for IoT

Behind the complex network of connected technologies and devices, which makes up the Internet of Things (IoT) landscape, lies a similarly large and sprawling network of data infrastructure. The amount of data produced by the IoT correlates to the large-scale growth that this segment is experiencing. Whilst capturing data is a key part of the process, so is ensuring it can be stored, accessed, and transformed into valuable insights. As data is the largest and most unique resource in each IoT application, enterprises must pay attention to how to store it appropriately to get maximum value from it.

DevOps vs. Agile Development: What Methodology Is Right For You?

DevOps vs. Agile Development: What Methodology Is Right For You?

For business leaders looking to get a handle on the technical processes that drive their organization, collaboration is key.

That collaboration can take many forms, and for the uninitiated, approaches such as DevOps or agile development can be hard to grasp at a high level — and they may seem like the same thing.

But while they may do similar things, agile and DevOps have some notable differences, and their greatest power may emerge when they come together in one cultural piece.

Big Data Security In A Post-Quantum World

Big Data Security In A Post-Quantum World

As we enter year two of the quantum decade, it’s time to act now. The computing world stands on the threshold of something equal parts exciting and alarming. The age of the quantum computer is almost upon us, and it is going to radically change the way we think about big data management and security. The “Quantum Revolution” is predicted to have a greater impact than the internet on all aspects of modern life.

DevOps is getting code released faster than ever. But security is lagging behind

DevOps is getting code released faster than ever. But security is lagging behind

DevSecOps tools are enabling developers to release new code faster than ever – yet testing, code review and disagreements over who is in charge of security remain sticking points within organizational teams, according to GitLab’s latest industry survey.

The need to know: IoT security

The need to know: IoT security

Welcome to the digital world, where cellphones hold your entire life in its database, tablets have become the new spiral notebooks, and contactless transactions make your day-to-day norms feel like futuristic experiences. The Internet of Things (IoT) has genuinely taken the cyberworld by storm, simplifying and connecting everything in its path.

Put security first in cloud migration planning

Companies considering migration to a cloud environment usually focus first on infrastructure, from data centers to system performance to storage.

Have Cloud Security Needs Changed Since COVID-19?

Have Cloud Security Needs Changed Since COVID-19?

Cloud is not new. The term dates back at least twenty years. Some people will tell you that the term “cloud” just means using someone else’s computing environment, and in some ways, this is where it started. But today, cloud architectures mean so much more, with every element of the infrastructure and platforms being software configurable, and elastic.

The pressing need to deliver digital transformation over fiber optical networks

The pressing need to deliver digital transformation over fiber optical networks

As noted in a McKinsey report, digital transformation has accelerated by three to four years over the last year. Meanwhile, “smart” technologies are rapidly transforming how cities and entire business sectors are operating. Industry 4.0 – a “new industrial revolution,” where digital technologies increasingly underpin every aspect of work, has been on the horizon for a few years now, but events over the past year are proving to be the big catalyst, or “inflection point,” for it. All this transformation means that enterprises are better able to serve their customers, work rapidly, and build digital services for efficiency and better productivity.
