OK - so that's probably not the perfect headline to be announced by anyone who whistles through their teeth... Been having some interesting conversations recently around the idea of zero trust security; primarily why there was ever anything but zero trust in the first place? An obvious answer...

How To Save IT From Drowning In Its Own Self-Containerised World (and other stories)

Steve Broadhead Steve Broadhead Profile: Steve Broadhead

Anyone out there right now could be more than excused for thinking we're drowning in security start-ups; too many "me too" vendors trying to resolve the same perceived problems - niche or broad. Recently I met with the affable Liz Rice of Aqua Security - reverse cue the drowning gag -) to find a...

Shock Headline: IT Saves $$$$ (again)!

Two and a bit years ago – I should remember, it was on my birthday! – I was presenting a panel debate on the latest Cybersecurity deterrents. With four vendors and two consultants on the panel, it was the general consensus that deciding exactly which combination of products and services a...

Black Friday On My Mind

Ah – tomorrow – the dreaded Black Friday, yet another unwanted import from Trumpland. But, JASK – already previously subjected here to the blogging treatment – has some security advice to offer as they, rightly, note that the criminal fraternity have a great window of opportunity to take...

Global, Load-Balanced Redundant Weather

I remember long ago, in an unlikely setting for a bleeding-edge test-labs – an old winery surrounded by vines where the only “blood” came from crushed grapes – yes, my old French test labs, where we created the world’s first globally load-balanced, server/content distribution...

All Things Migration

So, in recent blogs I've talked about all things migration-wise; Windows migration issues and the testing thereof, migrating to the cloud, even migrating the cloud back to OnPrem, from OnPrem to VDI (in the cloud) and all stops in between seemingly... Shortly, my focus will be turned by to the...

No Cloud Over VDI!

Unsurprisingly, whatever the IT genre and whatever the weather, cloud is always on the horizon right now. One of several top meetings I had last week within IP Expo's confines was with Morteza Esteki of Liquidware (glamorously assisted by Jane Rimmer of Hiviz Marketing of course, from an...

Me and Load-Balancers (the artist wot became known as the Application Delivery Controller at some point in its life, even though it always did this anyway) go back a long way; 20 years basically, when "cloud" was merely a snowflake in the natural world of IT. Think Alteon and Arrowpoint - kind...

Parallel Universe Windows Migration as a Service

Rewind a few years and I was carrying out a series of test projects for a UK-based ISV client, AppDNA, whose focus was the analysis of application compatibility when migrating between different versions of Windows and IE respectively and, indeed, possibly concurrently – the ultimate double...

Recently returned from the sunny climes of the Algarve at this year’s round up of IT reprobates at Netevents (congrats, as ever, to the Netevents team for a) organising the event and b) surviving it). Unsurprisingly there was much talk of that re-roasted old chestnut that is AI and what it...
