11 Ways Poor Print Security Can Expose Your Network

There are more nuances to network architectures for security professionals to worry about than ever before. And if you’re thinking about the areas that require the most attention, printing solutions may not be very high on your list.

The 5 Essential Components of a Print Security Strategy

There’s a reason why you started shifting to network-connected printing. Aside from being more cost-efficient for your business, network printing is almost a necessity for supporting remote employees and meeting demands for cloud access.

However, as with almost any technology upgrade,

Internet of Things: A Security Burden for Your Printers

 In late 2016, the world experienced the real-world security implications of the Internet of Things (IoT). Attackers were able to compromise hundreds of thousands of internet-connected “things” to execute a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack that brought down websites such as PayPal,

Incorporating Flash into Storage Environments

Data storage has come a long way since the first hard-disk drive (HDD) hit the market in 1956. The IBM 350 Disk File was the size of two refrigerators, weighed more than a ton, had 50 spinning magnetic disks the size of pizza pans and could hold roughly 5MB of data.

Rethinking the Campus Network

Wireless networks have become imperative to support today’s increasingly mobile workforce. Users need ready access to productivity-enhancing applications and services, yet many IT departments are struggling to keep pace with those demands. In many organizations, wired and wireless networks remain divided,

Better Backup for the Virtualized Environment

Server virtualization enables higher resource utilization, cost savings and improved efficiency. However, virtualization also creates new backup challenges.

Traditional backup processes aren’t well suited to the virtualized environment, with consolidated workloads and extreme data redundancy. Because legacy backup applications are not virtualization-aware,

Using HPC for Mission-Critical Workloads

Supercomputers once were large, monolithic, data-crunching machines generally associated with organizations that were similarly large and monolithic, such as NASA, the U.S. Army or the Los Alamos National Laboratory. Today, however, almost any size organization can achieve supercomputer-level performance utilizing off-the-shelf components and the latest system management tools.
