Google's Enterprise Cloud Problem

Our new survey delivers a good news/bad news scenario: Apps and Gmail are compared favorably one-to-one with Office and Exchange/Outlook. But a cloud stigma still sticks to Google in the enterprise.

IT pros from Boston's professional teams -- the Patriots, Celtics, Bruins and Red Sox -- met at Gillette Stadium to talk tech, the future of live sports, and how to deliver real-time, high-definition video to a crowd of 70,000.

Get Rid Of Old Desktops And Do Some Good

If you've wanted to donate outdated end-user devices but were thwarted by security, software licensing, or other concerns, the new Serious Good program by IT asset recovery company Redemtech might be for you. The program's ambitious: Provide a refurbished computer for every Habitat for Humanity partner family in the U.S. who wants one, a target that will require about 80,000 donated computers. But since U.S. businesses replace about 40 million PCs per

Earlier this month I sat down with Deepak Mohan, senior VP of Symantec's Information Management Group, and Anil Chakravarthy, senior VP of Symantec's Storage and Availability Management Group, to discuss the growth of digital information and topics that InformationWeek Analytics will be covering in the second half of the year.

The HiPPO In The Room

I attended the MIT Sloan Symposium yesterday, which largely focused on the democratization and decentralization of IT. "You're no longer in control," says Frank Moss, former Tivoli CEO and now head of MIT's media lab. "Get over it."

Cybercrime As An Economic Threat

Speaking on Good Morning America this morning during a report on the terror threat, former counterterrorism czar Richard Clarke pegged cyberthreats as just as, if not more, serious than the next iteration of the underwear bomber. "Every day major corporations in the country lose their intellectual property, their corporate secrets, without even knowing it, to successful Chinese hacks" says Clarke. "This is the real big threat, because it takes away our economic advantage."

Security: Exception to the Rule?

In his most recent column, Art Wittmann explained that we're not going to see a "year of the cloud" because cloud is an evolutionary process, and evolution takes time. In general, that's true, but there's one area where the pace tends to be quicker—security. Attackers aren't sitting back waiting for new techs to gain maturity. They're throwing everything they have at our networks, hoping

Unified Communications, Take 1

The best thing about my job is hanging out with smart people. I had that opportunity last Friday when I attended the filming of a series of videos on unified communications.

The Encryption Gap

Things that make us say "hmmm" include these stats: The percentage of respondents to our 2009 Strategic Security Survey rating encrytion as effective in reducing risk dropped from 57% in 2008 to 48% in 2009. Use of disk, file and backup media encryption ALL fell year over year by at least five percentage points. Backup encryption usage is down 10 points.

Yes, We're Talking Mainframes

Sure, much of our audience is thinking "Seriously dude? You're bumming me out. I've been working for a few hours and I almost have my iPhone virtualized. I'm gonna have, like, three iPhones running on one phone." But if you're one of the select few who sees the real future of virtualization, have I got a survey for you.

Plug Those Leaks

There's a spirited discussion going on among our technology editors over data loss prevention (DLP) technologies. Is DLP the new NAC? Sure, it's expensive, but could this keep data from walking out on thumb drives? Could we finally put a lid on the insider threat?

Can We Bridge The Security Divide?

This week I spent some time at the Boston Source Conference, attending Christopher Hoff's balanced discussion of cloud computing security and Jeremiah Grossman's take on making money the black hat way, among other sessions. Great quality content, well worth the time, and I'll never look at online banking the same way. This "a little knowledge equals a lot of fear" syndrome isn't new for me -- for years, I've edited secur

Is NAC Hot, Or Not?

This is InformationWeek Analytics' fourth year tracking the state of NAC adoption. It's been fascinating to see firsthand the arc of a technology, from media darling to sitting on the sidelines, watching as new starlets like cloud computing grab all the glory. Something like Etta James watching Beyonce belt out "At Last," but without the smack talk.
