  • Top 10 reasons to strengthen security with desktop virtualisation

    By Victor Tsao | 16 August, 2013 07:38

    New ways of working call for new ways of managing risk. Mobility, flexwork, bring-your-own device (BYOD) and increased collaboration across organisations have changed risk profiles and undermined existing IT architectures.

  • F5, VMware & Cisco: One happy family?

    By John Gallant | 11 November, 2013 22:21

    At first blush, F5 Networks' new Synthesis Architecture for Software-Defined Application Services might appear to compete with new offerings from Cisco and VMware.

    By Rob Enderle | 21 June, 2013 15:02

    The future of IT will be systems that are intelligent enough to detect and solve problems without human interaction, CIO.com columnist Rob Enderle conjectures. This will be great for analytics but bad for security--and it may leave IT workers reaching for Valium.

    By Arif Janmohamed | 13 May, 2013 17:10
