Were you busy last week? Here’s a quick tech news recap of articles you may have missed from the week of 3/9/2015.
The State Department shut down its email servers last November because of a bad hack. Hilary Clinton didn't use the State Department's on-prem email servers, which wasn't considered secure. The ironic thing is her email address is probably one of the few that hackers didn't have access to. News also came out that the CIA has been trying to break Apple's encryption system. A group of hackers that had been unbeatable for a decade were brought down. VMware vSphere with Operations Management 6.0 was released. It has some good features such as multicore FT, long distance vMotion and virtual volumes. Microsoft Azure has met FBI security requirements for the California Department of Justice. This should open doors for deployments in other cities and agencies.
