The Internet of Things (IoT) is changing the way business is done; it is recognised by the majority of organisations as an opportunity to improve and streamline business processes and a new way to interact with customers. The impact and growth of IoT has the potential to be as big as the Internet was in the 1990s with device numbers expected to at least triple by 2020. However, the large number and wide range of devices involved expands network attack surfaces and requires existing security measures to be adapted and scaled.

Most people, when thinking of enterprise storage, will think of SAN and NAS, with a few going as far as DAS.  However, the growth of server-side storage, where specialised flash-based PCIe and M2 cards is leading to a far more complex estate of different non-volatile storage platforms.  Pulling all of these together along with using volatile storage (i.e. DIMM memory) can provide massive improvements in data performance - for little outlay.  This presentation, given by Clive Longbottom at an event with Viadex and PernixData, shows how different storage platforms are positioned in their means to adequately present data to the compute environment in terms of latency, and then looks at what is required to manage a highly complex and heterogeneous storage platform.

Amidst the proliferation of Internet of Things (IoT) endpoints, the cybersecurity threat landscape has expanded to every mobile, smart and cloud-enabled device on the network. This threatens the resilience of organisations not only from the disruption of business operations, but also the potential ramifications of a data breach can lead to financial loss, brand and reputational damage and loss credibility in the market place. Printers and multifunction printers (MFPs) are not immune to the security threat and are vulnerable to the same risks as any device on the network.

The far-reaching financial, legal and reputational implications of a data loss mean that information security is a business imperative. Safeguarding the ever-increasing volumes of valuable corporate data against unauthorised access has become integral to maintaining business operations and adhering to increasingly vigorous data privacy compliance requirements.
