In our ESG Lab group, we have a saying: “It’s easy to prove something doesn’t work, but it’s really hard to prove something does.”
Even so, I’m a little surprised at the volume of naysayers that are popping up post Dell/EMC merger announcement. Some of the things I’m hearing and reading are just plain dumb. Thus, allow me to straighten you all out.
First, let’s agree Mr. Dell is not an idiot. On the contrary, he’s about 25 billion times smarter than you and I. Second, we should probably agree that Mr. Tucci is pretty smart himself. He took a ragtag bunch who appeared near the end of the customer abuse cycle, with one real product (Symmetrix), and turned it into a powerhouse that has dominated the storage world for decades, and, oh yeah, brought you VMware.
While last week’s Dell/EMC merger was certainly a blockbuster, nothing specific was mentioned about future plans for RSA Security. Michael Dell did say that there were a “number of discussions about security” during the negotiations, but apparently, no concrete plans yet. Infosec reporters have lobbed phone calls into Round Rock Texas as well as Bedford and Hopkinton, MA looking for more details, but Dell and EMC officials haven’t responded.
Campus network switches aren’t updated as frequently as data center switches, but there are some compelling reasons why it may be worthwhile to upgrade now and not wait until the end of a regular refresh cycle.
Practically speaking, campus networking is wireless networking, and there are more devices connecting to the network. More devices mean more bandwidth requirements, and it’s hard to figure out what BYOD devices are going to be doing, whether it’s just plain download bandwidth, a time critical application like VoIP, or a sudden surge like Apple iOS version updates. And once end-users are tied to a new way of using devices, network teams are often forced to adapt. BYOD not only means bring your own devices, but adds, “because you’re overly demanding”.
Mickey Bresman, Co-Founder and CEO and Ran Harel, Senior Security Product Manager, both at Semperis, discuss the findings of the company’s recent Microsoft Active Directory security survey, and also explain how the Semperis Purple Knight security assessment tool not only highlights AD security gaps, but also provides recommended fixes.
Mike McAdam, Data Centre Director EMEA, and Simon Prichard, Product Strategy Manager, both at Mitsubishi Electric Europe, explain how real-time data visualisation and smart insights can help to optimise data centre power and cooling infrastructure, before discussing the wider sustainability challenges and opportunities facing the industry into the future. They also share the company’s plans to leverage its critical infrastructure expertise to expand its presence within the data centre sector.
Imply has recently launched the Polaris cloud database service. Imply’s Vice President of Product Marketing, David Wang, puts the launch in context as he details the company’s Project Shapeshift work around Apache Druid, going on to explain how today’s analytics opportunities require the very latest and best database solutions.
Nick Smith, Business Development Manager at Genetec, discusses the changing role of physical security as it impacts IT infrastructure, identifying some key trends. He also details the company’s recent Streamvault Edge launch and highlights the particular physical security challenges faced by the data centre sector.
A perfect storm of escalating cyber-attacks and global tech innovation, leaves 61 per cent of Chief Information Security Officers (CISO) only “fairly confident” of managing their current threat exposure.
