The Emerging Technology Landscape: The New, the Hot, and the Unconventional

I recently did a video to discuss the emerging technology landscape around three primary areas:

  1. Revamping traditional customer-owned infrastructure
  2. Mobility
  3. Security

On the traditional side, hyper-converged infrastructure is huge. Players including SimpliVity, Nutanix and VMware with EVO:RAIL will be making a big impact over the next 12 months. We're also seeing a lot of traction with our customer base around what they should move to a cloud environment. How do you rationalize your application portfolio? What about the people and process piece? How are you going to operationalize the technology you implement? How do you get your teams trained to be able to handle new challenges? This is where GreenPages' Transformation Services really comes into play.

As far as mobility goes, security and access are huge here. Organizations need to look into segmenting mobile devices. For example, cutting a phone in half - having a personal side of the phone and a business side of the phone. Employees can have personal apps and games on one side and have the other be for business critical applications. The business side can be locked down and if an employee leaves, the business side can be wiped while leaving the personal side of the phone alone.

Enjoy the video & please reach out with any questions or comments!

Microsoft Exchange Zero-Day Vulnerabilities Being Actively Exploited in The Wild

By Randy Becker, CISO & VP, Network and Security Consulting It isn’t common for Microsoft to release a security update for an 11-year-old server application. So, when they do, people take notice. Especially when tied to Email. Microsoft has just released out-of-band security updates for a zero-day exploit that is actively being exploited in the wild. Of significant importance is that this is for all supported Microsoft Exchange versions plus Exchange 2010.

Zero Trust Does Not Mean Zero Access

By Randy Becker, CISO & VP, Network and Security Consulting Zero Trust is not new, but it has recently started to show up a lot in security circles. A quick search shows that there are a lot of organizations with thoughts on this topic. Given the infamous SolarWinds breach, we are starting to hear more about “Zero Trust,” “Defense in Depth,” and my personal favorite “Assume the Breach.” Last Friday CISA quietly posted the following important guidance on Zero Trust: NSA Releases Guidance on Zero Trust Security Model. This should be on the short list of reading for everyone.
