The number of Internet services is continuously increasing. This goes along with the need to create more user accounts, which have to be protected by adequate, ideally unique identifiers (ID) and passwords.
Today most Internet users have probably multiple IDs and passwords for their different accounts.
Who doesn’t feel overwhelmed by all of this? And honestly, we all are probably re-using our IDs and passwords over and over again, which however, may cause significant security holes. Continue reading “Single Sign-On Technology Boosts Password Security” »
Competition is progressively increasing in almost every market and information is becoming one of the most valuable business assets and for today’s businesses to function efficiently, information systems need to have access to correct data in real-time.

Information technology (IT) departments are under increased pressure to improve productivity across broadening mobile networks and devices to support the proliferation of smartphones and tablets in the workplace. The process for IT to manage mobility within an enterprise is a series of successive know-hows that define the full mobility life cycle. Continue reading “Mobility as a Service (MaaS)” »
Progressively, business move their IT into the cloud to benefit from the broad range of possibilities, using Software as a Service (SaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) to reach out to clients, manage data and develop intelligent business strategies that can keep up with rapidly developing technologies.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) defines cloud computing as having: Continue reading “Design of Cloud Migration” »
A computer virus is defined as a program that potentially causes damage to hardware, software or any data within a network. For businesses, it can drastically damage business operations, cooperation and client-vendor relationships. Continue reading “Cyber Security Threats IV – Viruses” »
More and more enterprises are transferring their data into the cloud and excitement about scalability, cost-saving, improved data and customer management. With increasingly improved security management, cloud computing seems to be the ultimate solution of any IT problem.
The limiting factor for data transfer from Local Area Networks (LAN) into the cloud is b bandwidth.
Network bandwidth, or digital bandwidth, is defined as “computer network’s net rate” which is the amount of data transfer, channel capacity or maximum throughput of a logical or physical communication path. It is measured as “bytes per second (bps)” for digital services or Hertz (Hz) for analog devices. Continue reading “Bandwidth Bottlenecks – A Limit of Enterprise Cloud Computing?” »
Moving a software application to the cloud merely means running it in the web rather than on the traditional data center infrastructure.
The main advantages to migrate data and software operations to the cloud include Continue reading “Migrating the Cloud” »
Data volumes are growing daily along with the fact that the capability to handle countless file formats becomes more and more difficult. This makes it necessary to develop new, Continue reading “Dissecting the Cloud V – Storage Clouds” »
Community clouds are multi-tenant infrastructures that are shared among different organizations of the same community defined as specific groups with common computing concerns such as mission, security requirements, policies, audit requirements, regulatory compliance considerations or Continue reading “Dissecting the Cloud IV – Community Clouds” »
