PernixData just extended and upgraded its FVP server-side storage offering; and it serves as a good reminder that we need to redefine (indeed, for the technically minded, parse) what we mean by the word "storage" in IT.
Endpoint security tools moving beyond AV, putting a $10 billion market in play.
Wall Street and enterprise customers demand bold actions as soon as possible.
Network security skills and staffing continue to lag at enterprise organizations. Time to sound the alarm?
HP's announcement to provide an entry level of its SDS offering - VSA - for free with certain server purchases is interesting for what it represents just as much as for what it actually is.
Integration and services needed for cybersecurity efficacy and operations efficiency.
Larry Ellison is the last of the accomplished first generation founder/CEOs to step down. Larry and Oracle’s impact in IT has been remarkable and will persist for years to come.
The new SANblox offeering from Permabit allows the retrofitting of data reduction technologies (dedupe and compression) onto existing FC arrays. That's clearly an attractive proposition for some users...but will their vendors give them a chance to deploy it?

I have always been confounded why IT, the custodian of corporate data, doesn’t feel obliged to protect that corporate data when it resides on an endpoint device, and more particularly when the corporate data resides on a BYOD endpoint device. I understand the excuses – it's hard to do well, the solutions are expensive, and it's difficult to quantify the business impact and therefore the ROI of the solution. In fact, in ESG’s Data Protection-as-a-service (DPaaS) Trends report, we saw several excuses (not reasons) to not back up endpoint devices.
