It's been such a great few days meeting with Symantec Connect community members and introducing others to the site that this is the first chance for me to share some of my personal conference highlights.

Another Vision event draws to a close and what a great few days it has been!

There have been many highs, few lows - and those have been self-inflicted - and lots to learn.  VCS 6.0 looks great - VOM and VBS really are going to make a huge difference to how we look after the service and not just the infrastructure.  This then exploded onto the iPad which showed how amazingly connected we all are all the time.  Want to see the state of your service?  Open your mobile device and see realtime data right there.

We've then been shown how you can join your personal mobile device and your personal data with that of the corporate world - safely, securely and not just for the company but you too.  This is really exciting and to me shows the year ahead will be packed full of great ideas and fun.

Why have I chosen 'putting the no in innovation' as the title.  Well, this Vision event has highlighted quite clearly that Symantec...

Podcast:
Enlightened Mobile Security
In my opinion it is very important to make the private/home users aware about security espacially with mobile devices. And if the private user understands the traps and problems, he will automatically bring this awareness to his workplace.

Insights into Data Ownership and Usage of unstructured Data was one of the presentations which had for me the most information where I want to look deeper in to. The presentation was enriched with a customer experience which was...

Best practices companies should implement for mobile security on their mobile devices.

1. Choose Devices Carefully

Not all devices are created equally when it comes to security. For example, iPods are built for general consumers not as concerned by security and is therefore less inherently secure than a BlackBerry device designed for enterprise users.

“The degree to which IT managers can control security on mobile devices is highly dependent upon the vendor that they select,” DeBeasi says. “You should try to get mobile devices that have the best possible control and security on them and then use those mechanisms and it will go a long way to locking down those mobile devices.”

2. Turn On Encryption

Once you choose devices with stronger security controls, use those controls! DeBeasi says that many organizations do not enforce or even set policies mandating the use of device encryption on mobile devices....

What is a Cloud? 
 
  - A cloud is large collection of very tiny droplets of water or ice crystals. The droplets are so small and light that they can float in the air.
 
 
 
Ok so the two statements above are a world apart.  The second version is the one that IT professionals are fast becoming familiar with.  Symantec are, in particular, embracing the concept and are actively promoting products for data backup and retrieval and on-line information retrieval, amongst other services.
