Meeting Modern Application Needs With Data Processing Units
Accommodating the needs of business workloads and attendant network and security functions with innovative DPU solutions.
IDC finds that most enterprises today understand that IT infrastructure must be modernized and digitized to meet the demands and imperatives of digital transformation. After all, structure - and certainly infrastructure - must follow and enable strategy.

That said, aspiring to modernize infrastructure is one thing, and actually doing it successfully is another proposition entirely. IDC sees this challenge clearly in the context of how enterprises address the complementary but sometimes competing resource requirements of business workloads and network and security functions.

Rising To The Challenge Of A Green Data Center
When it comes to creating a green data center, it is imperative to have a partner who can help you see the forest for the trees.
You may have heard the old expression, 'You can't see the forest for the trees.' It is often used to describe a situation in which the preoccupation with a minor detail prevents someone from addressing the problem in its entirety. When it comes to creating a green data center, the strategy must be comprehensive, and not with just a single solution, in mind. A photograph of trees can provide a facade of greenery but it lacks the depth and substance that exist within a real forest.

Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends For 2023: Gartner
Gartner has revealed its top 10 strategic technology trends for 2023, which focus on three themes: optimize, scale and pioneer.
Cutting costs by optimizing IT, scaling networks to deliver business value and growth, and changing the direction of the business itself are among the top 10 technology trends Gartner predicts for 2023.

There is growing uncertainty on how to move past the most recent challenges resulting from supply chain issues, war in Ukraine and Eastern Europe, difficulty finding talent, and the evolving financial crisis. To overcome those, some businesses will cut costs, others will continue with existing expansion plans, and some will change the direction of their business strategy completely.

Why Digital Transformation Projects Fail; How Data Architecture Can Help
Every year, large corporations spend trillions of dollars on digital transformation projects, which they hope will help them take advantage of emerging technologies and boost their business operations.
Among these technologies are predictive analytics and decision-support systems, which have the potential to transform the traditional focus of IT from saving costs and solving technical constraints to proactively creating value and opportunities across the organization.

However, implementation challenges mean many of these digital transformation projects end in ruins, leading to huge financial losses for the companies involved.

Why A Data Privacy Officer Should Be Your Company's Next Hire
It would be a mistake to assume that the role of a data privacy officer (DPO) is limited to data security.
In the same way that the financial crisis created a more financially astute public, data security breaches, privacy stories and scandals are making people more aware of their data privacy rights - and more concerned about how companies and the government use their data.

Data breaches affect all organisations. Those that have been hit by major breaches in the last five years range from tech corporations such as Facebook (April 2019) and Alibaba (November 2019), to hotel chain Marriott International (September 2018) and airlines British Airways (September 2018) and EasyJet (May 2020)

Why Object Storage Is Best For Cloud-Native Apps
A crucial question that plagues cloud application developers is, 'What kind of storage should we use for our app?'
Unlike other choices like compute runtimes-Lambda/serverless, containers or virtual machines-data storage choice is highly sticky and makes future application improvements and migrations much harder.

All three hyperscalers have storage services that present block, file and object-based data access. Each of these storage services are mature and offer different advantages, making the choice even harder. Though block and file-based storage has existed for multiple decades, in this article we will illustrate some key differentiators that should make object storage your default storage choice for new applications written in the cloud.

Companies have learned to thrive - and in some cases survive - by leveraging data for competitive advantage. But how many organizations are truly data-driven enterprises?

'Data is becoming increasingly valuable, especially from a business perspective,' says Lakshmanan Chidambaram, president of Americas strategic verticals at global IT consulting firm Tech Mahindra. 'Afterall, data can tell us a lot about a company's processes and activities. It shows whether one is moving in the right direction, identifies areas of improvement, and suggests an appropriate process to make those improvements.'

Backblaze Thinks SSDs Are More Reliable Than Hard Drives
The ones used as boot drives in its datacenters seem to be, but perhaps not over time
Cloudy backup and storage provider Backblaze has found that flash SSDs are more reliable than hard drives, at least as far as the boot drives deployed in its datacenters go, but cautions this could change in future as the SSDs age.

These findings come from Backblaze's latest report detailing reliability statistics on the drives used in its infrastructure, and in this case it is only the second such report to focus on SSDs, following one the company published in March.

Scale-Out Storage
Scale-out storage is a network-attached storage (NAS) architecture in which the total amount of disk space can be expanded through the addition of devices in connected arrays with their own resources.
In a scale-out system, new hardware can be added and configured as the need arises. When a scale-out system reaches its storage limit, another array can be added to expand the system capacity. Scale-out storage can harness the extra storage added across arrays and use added devices to increase network storage capacity, adding performance and addressing the need for additional storage.

Before scale-out storage became popular, enterprises often bought storage arrays much larger than needed to ensure that plenty of disk space would be available for future expansion. If that expansion never occurred or the storage needs turned out to be less than anticipated, much of the originally purchased disk space went to waste.

Google's Deepmind Has A Long-Term Goal Of Artificial General Intelligence
When DeepMind, an Alphabet subsidiary, started off more than a decade ago, solving some most pressing research questions and problems with AI wasn't at the top of the company's mind.
Instead, the company started off AI research with computer games. Every score and win was a measuring stick of success, and pointed to DeepMind's AI going in the right direction.

'Five years ago, we conquered the game of Go. This was a great moment,' said Colin Murdoch, the chief business officer, during a fireside chat on Tuesday at the AI Hardware Summit being held in Santa Clara, California.

Many years on, the gaming experiment has now turned into a much more ambitious AI effort to solve massive problems in areas that include protein folding, nuclear fusion and quantum chemistry.

Cloud security is an ongoing requirement for all organizations born and built in the cloud.
As organizations build and develop new features and expand their presence in the cloud, they must not only contend with the ability to continually grow their security coverage, but likewise align with any changes to compliance and regulatory requirements. Additionally, and importantly to SaaS companies, security programs must also demonstrate verifiable proof of a robust security program. One way to probably demonstrate security controls is with a SOC 2 report.

The Challenge Of Securing Critical Operational Technology Systems At The Ground Level
Although a 'shift in attitude' is happening around securing the operational technology (OT) that underpins critical infrastructure like manufacturing plants or utilities, the federal government is still working through challenges in targeting efforts toward smaller operators grappling with limited resources, and ensuring that the OT investments being made today have security built into them.
The Biden administration over the past year has spearheaded several initiatives that aim to better secure industrial control systems (ICS), including a National Security Memorandum passed last July, which directed the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) to work with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to develop a number of security performance goals for critical infrastructure sectors.

But at a Thursday hearing called 'Building on our Baseline: Securing Industrial Control Systems Against Cyberattacks,' government officials discussed further security improvements needed at the ground level to secure critical infrastructure environments and the particularly complex challenge of building security into the design of OT systems.

To Improve Cybersecurity, Assume Vulnerability
One struggle continues to rear its head with regard to cyberverse security: adopting a proactively vulnerable mindset.
Understanding the nature of vulnerabilities allows a company to address them in a proactive manner. Google understood phishing was a preventable problem, and famously implemented FIDO to good effect; they have not been successfully phished since. But their choice is an exception rather than the rule.

Thus far, market adoption of cybersecurity best practices has been an exercise in corrective maintenance, not preventative.

Phishing Attacks: What You Need To Know Now - Arkose Labs
According to the FBI Internet Crime Report 2021, phishing was the fastest growing type of internet crime from 2019 to 2021, and bad actors continue to evolve their phishing attack techniques.
The latest phishing attack, EvilProxy, allows even inexperienced criminals to use reverse proxy and cookie-injection methods to provide a way around two factor authenticated (2FA) sessions on a large scale.

What is a phishing attack?

Phishing is the practice of attackers sending malicious emails meant to lead users to fall for a scam. Phishing attacks attempt to trick users into clicking on web links that will download malware or redirect to a malicious website with the intent of gathering private information such as login credentials, multifactor authentication (MFA) tokens, and financial information.
