Dropbox Software Glitch

Lost Files May be Restored, but What About Lost Confidence?

Blog-post by,

Mr. Murphy (of Murphy’s Law fame) has a way of seeing to it that data is lost when you need it most, and he is apparently undeterred by the Cloud Computing Revolution.

Still reeling from the iCloud breach, the Cloud Computing industry faces another PR hit – lost files due to a software glitch in the popular Dropbox application.

Can Your Security Protection Keep Up with Roaming Mobile Workers?

Blog-post by,

As 2014 comes to a close, many of us in the security industry cringe as we look back at a year full of massive, high profile security breaches. In spite of major investments of capital and time by large corporations, attackers are still getting through their defensive perimeters, and dwelling undetected long enough to do extensive damage. It’s become painfully clear that enterprises today are so interconnected, any gap in their widely dispersed infrastructures or ecosystems can provide an entry point for sophisticated cybercriminals.

Keep the infrastructure team away from cloud strategies? Yup!

Ultimately cloud computing in most all its iterations is about infrastructure, right? Whether you are trying to minimize Capex or save your existing infrastructure for ‘Sunday best’ applications or trying to quickly scale to meet shifting business conditions. It comes down to infrastructure.

Therefore it is only logical that the infrastructure team at your organization should be front and center when it comes to planning cloud migrations. Right? Wrong! Because most infrastructure teams are inherently shortsighted, focusing on near-term goals instead of long term strategies.

The importance of cyber security is no secret to anyone who watches the nightly news or, in this day and age, has attended a board meeting. Senior executives at businesses of all sizes understand that the global economy is still not adequately protected against cyber-attacks, despite years of effort and annual spending in the multi-billion dollar range.

5 keys to a secure cloud—but no guarantees

Blog-post by,

A lot of ink has been spilled about cloud security. Rather than talking about the fear factor—should you trust your mission-critical apps and data to the cloud?—I'd like to share some concrete advice on how to achieve a more secure cloud in a hybrid IT environment. By looking at five key areas when choosing a cloud provider, you can improve the odds that your cloud won't fall prey to a malicious attack or an infrastructure failure. I use the phrase "improve the odds" deliberately, because no cloud solution is failsafe.

In yesterday's Twitter chat about what CIOs can do to blunt the spread of rogue clouds, there was no consensus, really, but plenty of informed opinion.

Here's the numbers on the chat: 28 participants and 188 Tweets. Now for the insights.

Rogue clouds are going to happen even if the CIO offers alternatives. All the same, protection of corporate assets is paramount and that is aided by employee communication and education.
