Do You Have Your Data Brexit Plan in Order? | @BigDataExpo #Cloud #BigData #Analytics

Yes this post is about the #Brexit, but it's about your data more importantly! As a company that has a large customer and open source user community in the EU, I thought a quick note on some considerations following the Brexit vote were in order. This is not an opinion piece, as that would seem to be casting stones at this point. The vote is done and the process will move forward as it was voted, but I do think the impacts of this decision are going to be incredibly disruptive and likely felt for a long time to come in many ways well outside the economic or political realms. There is no sector of industry or field of study that will not face potential disruption, and the deeper and larger ramifications of the departure of the Kingdom from the EU are starting to come into focus. If you think there isn't impact for data analytics, think again! Data in Europe, and pe... (more)

VMware loses top security researcher as well!

Well these are rather grim news from a security standpoint. VMware's Determina's acquisition and its rather dubious Bluelane acquisition, where no one apparantly made any profit, are putting VMware under solid pressure. I really don't know if all this is because of the restructuring within VMware or merely that some other shift is going to happen. VMware surely is on some rather contradictory paths given that it is under tremendous pressure from the security community to provide some solid answers around Security and Compliance. VMware has made progress around the PCI DSS participation but strategically it is on the losing side. Bluelane's acquisition has left a lot of people with some bitter taste in their mouths. Speaking to a Bluelane employee, who wished anonymity, there was a lot at play since Feb 2008. during Cannes VMworld, some sort of deal was struck to buy B... (more)

Managed Security with a Strategic Twist

Managed services provider Verizon Business has added an interesting twist to its security toolbox. Traditionally, managed security services are tactical: they monitor a network for potential attacks, using virus signatures and other definitions. Earlier this month, Verizon upgraded its customers' security capabilities with what it calls its "Risk-Correlation Service," designed to add strategic insight to security. The RCS works with vulnerability scans -- either those it does for customers or those from vendors such as McAfee, Qualys, and others -- to determine where potential vulnerabilities exist. The service also documents your system to create a map of devices and the business processes that run on them. "It marries threat information with vulnerability information," says Jonathan Nguyen-Duy, Director of Product Management for Verizon. Calculating Risks The result... (more)

The Top 250 Players in the Cloud Computing Ecosystem
