At Vision 2010, we’ve talked a lot about new technologies to help our customers secure and manage information from a growing number of risks and increasing number of threats.  During the Innovation Showcase at Vision, we discussed our customer-centric approach to innovation and also shared a sneak peak at an innovative research prototype from Symantec Research Labs(SRL) that is designed to help wireless carriers secure and mange information on their networks.  
 
With the growth in adoption of mobile devices, specifically smartphones, wireless carriers are exposed to new risks and are looking for ways to keep their networks secure for end-users. The premise of the Symantec Mobile Reputation Security (SMRS) prototype is to provide effective security and remediation capabilities on the smartphone.  SMRS takes the existing...

We're well into day 2 at Vision and getting closer to information overload.  If you haven't already, stop by booth 21 to see Dorado Software.  If there's still room in your brain for more info you need to learn how to see the whole picture... solve problems faster.     The Redcell Integration Component does make the problem solving faster.  And who doesn't want that!?!  Key features include:

Auto Discovery

Unfortunately I'm not eligible to win an ipad, but I couldn't resist sharing a few of my favorite parts of Vision.  At the trusted advisor dinner on Monday night Ian waxed eloquent about a certain snack cake found only in the UK that apparently is responsible for 85% of his daily diet.  While wikipedia offered a decent explanation of the Jaffa Cake, Ian graciously donated a couple of boxes from his private stash for us to sample.  

After tasting this imported treat I can't say that I'm ready to replace hostess cupcakes at the top of my guilty pleasures list, but it certainly is worth a taste.  If you're up near the internet...

Great use of time with time with the hands-on lab for EV's Virtual Vault - thanks EV team for putting together a very complete demo!  Good way to fix the "forwarding of shortcut to others" issue.

When mulling over a data center asset management system that uses RFID technology, one of the first things to consider is what flavor of tag to use. The technology underpinning both active and passive tags has advanced significantly in recent times and sussing out the capabilities of each tag type will help you pick the one that's right for you.

Active tags have a power supply so their signals are stronger than their passive cousin's. It also means they're constantly emitting a signal. That makes them easier to find than passive tags which must be in close proximity to an RFID reader before revealing their presence.

Moreover, because an active tag's signal is stronger, it can often surmount any local electromagnetic interference that would mask the signal from a passive tag. Because of that, any tagging projects that involved metal required the use of active tags. That...

At our 2010 Vision Conference in Las Vegas this week customers continue to share the intense pressure they are under to better manage their existing resources and thereby cut down on storage spend. In an effort to empower these customers, on Wednesday Symantec announced enhancements to Veritas Storage Foundation that will help to alleviate some of the pain. Enterprises can now automate their storage optimization in thin environments with Symantec’s unique approach to leveraging thin provisioning technology.

Even more exciting are all the array vendors who are lined up to support Symantec's approach to thin provisioning. Symantec partners 3PAR, Compellent, EMC, Fujitsu, Hitachi Data Systems, HP, IBM and NetApp are all on board and have recently added support for Symantec's industry standard Thin Reclamation API that was announced last year. Check out Wednesday's...

There is a legend of seven warriors.  They stood up together to represent their homeland, of the City of Kansas, in a grand challenge of skill, strength and intelligence.  A number of warriors came from across the world to compete in this grand challenge. 

Each group assembled stood together to face the challenges in front of them.  Though a number would compete in the first round only 8 would advance.
 

Each challenge began with a series of questions that the judges watched over.  During the each challenge the warriors that were gathered from around the world raced to answer their questions as quickly as they could so they might face their true task. 
 
During the first challenge each team was forced to do battle with a creature floating in the waters that filled the center of the proving grounds.   The floating beast disguised itself as land so that normally it...
