  • Durable and circular for more a sustainable mobile device strategy

    Consumerisation of mobile technology has had many benefits. It has driven down the prices of devices, improved the user experience to the benefit of non-technical users. Plus, awareness and crucially acceptance, of mobile devices, has soared. All of this might seem good for the business, but there is a significant drawback. Consumer attitudes to technology can lead to a throwaway culture, with the obvious impact on wastage. This is not sustainable.

  • Mobile devices at work – a more sustainable approach

    Mobile devices put access to IT right into the hands of people while they are out and about performing their work tasks. For many this is not just about ‘being in touch’ or getting access to useful data. IT tasks performed using the mobile device are critical to the business process.

  • Load Balancing for security?

    Load Balancing (LB), is now popping up on the corporate security agenda! LB is no longer just about managing traffic flows across enterprise routers and servers. In the age of the cloud and software defined networking (SDN), the LB off-loading function has serious possibilities for deflecting DDOS attacks by shifting attack traffic from the corporate server to a public cloud provider. Next generation software load balancers with advanced dashboard capabilities can also provide deep analytics down to the individual application.

  • AV security – unwelcome guests and visual oversight?

    Consumerisation and collaboration bring many positive changes to the enterprise. Employees can now use the devices they prefer. Through social media, they have also become used to sharing and communicating more readily with friends and colleagues. However, these changes also introduce security risks – just who and what have you got connected to the network?

  • Bonding Cars and Comms

    Let’s face it: our road transport systems are jamming up – and it’s just getting worse! In order to improve transport infrastructures, the global focus is on the merger of physical transport and telecoms to optimise transport volumes, speed, accuracy as well as security, and actually reducing the environmental impact. Smart traffic management needs Software-Defined Networks (SDN) and Software-Defined WAN access (SD-WAN) to manage hefty increases in mobile data traffic.

  • 8 steps for implementing a successful print security plan

    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 convergence of AV and IT

    Developments in both audio visual (AV) and information technology (IT) are leading to a ‘convergence’ of the two sectors. This is similar to what has already happened in other markets once open, connected and scalable internet technology became pervasive. Those working in IT and AV need to better understand each other and the consequences of technology advances in each sector, to plan effectively for the future.

  • Protecting web sites from web scrapers

    If you sell something, it makes sense that news of what you are selling spreads far and wide to attract as many buyers as possible. To this end, e-commerce sites want to be found near the top of relevant search lists and to be included on price comparison sites. It is accepted that automated software robots (bots) must access web sites to achieve this, including the web crawlers used by search engines and web scrapers used by price comparison sites; these are so-called good-bots.
