InfoWorld 7h et 35min ago

In some cases, the move to the cloud may be viewed as a threat to job security.IT teams are used to owning their own stuff. With the cloud, IT teams no longer need to purchase hardware and software, and hook it all up. Gone are the racks and the blinking lights. Moving to the cloud requires a change in ownership and mindshare. For many of us, it’s not a comfortable proposition.But how much control are we really giving up?... Read the article

BrandPost: Solving the cloud placement puzzle requires science, not guesswork

InfoWorld on 21/09/2017 pm30 19:44:00

Computing Survey of IT leaders, 45% of their IT environments was hosted in a private, public, or hybrid cloud environment. Cloud vendors are responding to the demand with a dizzying array of options which routinely lead to costly over-provisioning and sub-optimal configurations. Assessing options even within a single cloud provider can be complex business, let alone comparing alternatives across providers.The key to doing it right is to move beyond the surface-level assessment, rules of thumb, or plain old guesswork that most organizations employ. Using scientific analysis of workload requirements, crossed against the various hosting and service offerings from different cloud providers, can result in substantial savings of up to 80%, while dramatically reducing application risk.           ...

IDG Contributor Network: Why the Equifax security threat isn’t over yet

InfoWorld on 21/09/2017 pm30 17:11:00

Close to 150 million consumers were affected by the recent Equifax hack. While most of the media attention has been focused on protecting individual consumers from identity theft, this article focuses on protecting businesses. Because this hack is just the beginning of what’s to come, three things are likely to happen:More companies will be exploited through Struts in the coming months due to old versions of Struts still present in applications. Larger scale attacks, affecting multiple companies at once, will occur, leveraging vulnerable open source components. Regulation will ramp up across multiple industries forcing tighter security management. Before we get into what’s likely to happen, here’s a quick recap of the Equifax situation.To read this article in full or to leave a comment,... Read the article
