Move Over EMRs: The IoT Will Save Health Care

October 23rd, 2014

You know an industry is in dire trouble when technologies line up for the position of savior (just Google “technology will save health care”). Electronic medical records (EMRs, or electronic health records—EHRs) remain a favorite of many aspiring health-care reformers, but they have largely fizzled thanks to interoperability problems, a lack of standards, government subsidies that have rushed adoption and overly optimistic expectations. A breakout session at the recent Internet of Things World Forum considered wheth[...]

Big Blues for IBM?

October 21st, 2014

IBM’s exit from semiconductor manufacturing came with an interesting price tag: $1.5 billion. That’s how much Big Blue paid GlobalFoundries to take its money-losing chip unit off its hands. GlobalFoundries itself was a spinoff from x86 company AMD, which likewise struggled in the silicon business against the titan Intel. According to Patrick Thibodeau at Computerworld, this move signals that “IBM is shifting from manufacturing to a company that focuses on research, software and advanced systems devel[...]

Scaling Network Traffic Visibility to 100 Gbps

October 20th, 2014

As enterprise networks scale to 40 Gbps and 100 Gbps, network managers encounter a serious problem: many of today’s traffic monitoring, management and security tools are incapable of operating well, or even at all, at these high data rates. Complicating this challenge is the need to have a sufficient number of interface ports, supporting data rates ranging from 100 Mbps to 100 Gbps, to access all of network links needed to get full visibility into t[...]

When Urban Legends Lead to Danger: Keeping Your Data Center Safe With the Truth About DDoS Attacks

October 16th, 2014

The SANS 2014 DDoS Survey is quite telling. It reports that almost 40% of enterprises are completely or mostly unprepared for DDoS attacks. Although 23% of respondents indicated they did not have a plan for DDoS mitigation, another 16% were unaware of any such plans. In addition, 50% have never tested their DDoS capabilities. These numbers clearly demonstrate that many organizations do not see DDoS attacks as harmful—certainly not worth their attention. That’s because organizations are und[...]
