The convergence of cloud and mobile computing is one of the biggest IT trends today. This growing trend is transforming IT in business. Mobile devices improve employee productivity and cloud computing allows a mobile workforce to be even more efficient, allowing access to key applications and systems from anywhere. The fact is that businesses cannot ignore either today and will need to start implementing a new approach to IT in order to succeed in today’s world where the consumerization of IT is unavoidable.

However, with information spreading outside of the firewall, protecting information is more important than ever. Businesses need to put the ‘I’ back in IT and focus on the information, not the device or the data centre.

In conjunction with Symantec’s flagsip customer event, Vision EMEA, we will be hosting a twitter chat on this topic – the convergence of cloud and mobile. The chat will incorporate live updates from Vision during...

A few weeks ago, I returned from the European NG Security summit, held this year in Frankfurt. It was a successful summit with over 20 CISOs in attendance. There were a couple of things that really stood out for me.  Cyber, (Security, Threats, or Crime) & Risk.  Most of those in charge of their company's IT security business were conscious that they needed to do a better job communicating back to the business in their own language. Of the few that reported they already did this, they were clear that this approach meant they were able to build more strategic relations and gain additional budget.

Most organisations understand risk, after all, they would not be where they are today if they had not taken the occasional risk to grow the business! However, in the age of austerity, managing or controlling risk becomes even more important. Taking calculated risks through better business intelligence is not just an approach reserved for the research, sales or...
