If you've ever posted a question or looked for a solution in the Backup and Storage communities, chances are good that you have crossed paths with Trusted Advisor Marianne Van Den Berg. Recently Marianne reached 1,000 solutions--an amazing milestone, and one that we're considerably proud of her for reaching. Marianne is a fabulous asset to the Symantec Connect community. She lives west of Johannesburg in sunny South Africa, close to her grown-up son and daughter and is a new grandmother! She loves gardening, photography, getting out into nature. We're not sure when she does this however, as she gives a wealth of information and support around the clock. Join us in thanking Marianne for all she does.

An interesting global study on mobile life and bahaviours has been carried out by TNS and presents some great graphics on the preference of a mobile wallet. Some countries are certainly more keen than others (Asia leading the pack) and Western Europe is somewhat lagging, with only Ireland above 40% preference.

More than half of organizations indicate they are less than somewhat prepared to secure public cloud services, according to a survey conducted by Symantec and the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) at the CSA Summit this winter. Yet, 79 percent of respondents say it is somewhat/extremely important to define and enforce their own security policies independent of the specific cloud platform or applications providers.

It’s all about control. According to respondents, the most important factors impacting cloud adoption are control of who can access which cloud applications (90 percent) and control of what information can flow into the cloud (86 percent). More than half of respondents also believe it is important to have a single control point through which all public and private cloud traffic flows.

In short, what this survey reveals is that it’s important to have your own security for the cloud...

No surprise, but still interesting to see is that the Top 10 tags on http://www.banktech.com show Mobile banking and payments on top. It is a trend that is absolutely real and with an extensive fragmentation when it comes to best practices. Standards are not yet in place and SEPA is struggling to define a framework for payments, while card and payment providers battle each other and banks are partnering with service providers to find other options. Some time ago IDC predicted that only 10% of payments will go through the banks in the future, which is indeed disputed by the banks themselves. So who will come out strongest? Will it be diversified local alternatives rather than global streamlined services?
 

Top ten search phrases on www.banktech.com:
1.Mobile Banking
2.Mobile Payments
3.Security
4.Online Banking...
