The virtualization of physical computers has become the backbone of public and private cloud computing, from desktops to data centers, enabling organizations to optimize hardware utilization, enhance security, support multi-tenancy, and more.
These days, most well-developed organizations use a collection of several technologies, methodologies and products to protect their networks and computers from a particular threat. While no single technology guarantees security, application whitelisting covers situations not addressed by firewalls or antivirus utilities. This paper focuses on how application whitelisting can effectively be used as an important layer in your security scenario. It examines other security layers as well, and demonstrates how whitelisting compliments and augments existing defenses

The typical on-premises business environment of a decade ago called for the standard corporate rollout of strictly managed desktop PCs running Windows. And it was considered forward-looking to use similarly configured laptop computers with desktop docking stations, enabling workers to take their computers on business trips or take them home, perhaps to triage email or perform other maintenance tasks during off hours.
This decade has seen rapid changes in the technology world outside of work. We’ve seen the rise of mobile computing devices of all kinds, pervasive wireless broadband Internet access, and an explosion in mostly consumer-oriented cloud-based services. These changes have impacted IT and business computing, just as they have impacted the expectations of users.

Losing your computers doesn’t have to disrupt your business if you take advantage of the cloud. Solutions like automatic cloud-based backup and collaboration applications allow you to access your data any time from any number of devices.
Yet if you’re like many owners of small-to medium-sized businesses, you may wonder what the “cloud” is and what it can do for your business.
AMD has an extensive history of leadership in the thin client market, contributing to solutions that help provide reduced operating costs and power consumption, higher durability and increased longevity over personal computers. AMD helps to provide faster, high-definition video and graphics overlays, an enhanced Internet experience, widely scalable platform performance, and industry-leading display support. By employing AMD Embedded Accelerated Processing Unit (APUs) in Dell Wyse clients that incorporate a Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) and a Central Processing Unit (CPU) onto one die, Dell Wyse clients have the added benefit of improved data transfer rates, and space savings on the motherboard, allowing for the creation of smaller, more powerful devices.
An Abbreviated Version of Everything You Want to Know About AMD.
AMD delivers unique and unmatched computational capabilities in order to create natural, intelligent and innovative ways for people to interact with the devices they love. We design and manufacture graphics cards and microprocessors that power millions of the world’s personal computers, tablets, gaming consoles, embedded devices and cloud servers.
The supply chain meltdown begins due to the impact of Japan's travesty, but spending and growth is still reportedly on the rise in 2011 for integrated graphics chips. Inside this Custom Systems eZine, a market-research report forecasts that the market segment for integrated graphics chips will grow by 9 percent in 2011, shipping inside more than 63 million units globally, from 369 percent of the overall processor market last year. And while the PC market may not be the high growth opportunity it used to be, there's still plenty of business to be done around computer peripherals and custom systems. CRN's Need To Know list this month looks at a wide variety of vendors that build all of the necessary parts that compose today's computers, from the graphics cards and memory to the hard drives and chassis.
The exponential growth of omnichannel shopping and ever-burgeoning demand for faster merchandise deliveries is redefining the supply chain’s distribution of consumer products goods. A seminal shift in how shoppers increasingly buy via multiple touch points — online from desktop computers, mobile devices and in-store — has created the need for the “smarter” warehouse to serve today’s connected consumer. As retailers look to merge their brick-and-mortar and online operations to cut costs and boost efficiency, warehouse management systems must keep pace.
For this report, Zebra Technologies analyzed the state of the warehousing marketplace among firms in the US and Canada with at least $15 million in annual revenues. The online survey asked IT and operations personnel in the manufacturing, retail, transportation and wholesale market segments to share their insights and business plans over the next five years, in light of a rapidly changing industry.
Today, mobility is no longer a trend. It’s the new reality — and it is reshaping the enterprise. Gone are the days of employees tethered to desktop computers, and they’re no longer dependent on an Ethernet or wi-fi connection to work remotely. More and more enterprise employees are conducting daily work transactions on mobile devices. Mobility surged to 1.3 billion workers in 2015, continuing a 33 percent growth trend since 2010. These mobile workers aren’t limiting themselves to a single device, either. In just the last year, the number of devices managed by enterprises grew an incredible 72 percent.
IoT has proven its value in the private sector. Ever since the 1980’s, US manufacturing has undergone a dramatic transition based on IoT. Machines that where once manually calibrated and maintained began to be controlled by specialized computers. These computers were able to quickly recalibrate tools which allowed manufactures to produce smaller batches of parts, but were also often locked into proprietary computing languages and architectures.
The Internet of Things may be a hot topic in the industry but it’s not a new concept. In the early 2000’s, Kevin Ashton was laying the groundwork for what would become the Internet of Things (IoT) at MIT’s AutoID lab. Ashton was one of the pioneers who conceived this notion as he searched for ways that Proctor & Gamble could improve its business by linking RFID information to the Internet. The concept was simple but powerful. If all objects in daily life were equipped with identifiers and wireless connectivity, these objects could be communicate with each other and be managed by computers.

Big data can be observed, in a real sense, by computers processing it and often by humans reviewing visualizations created from it. In the past, humans had to reduce the data, often using techniques of statistical sampling, to be able to make sense of it. Now, new big data processing techniques will help us make sense of it without traditional reduction.

Today, everything computes. Intelligence has been infused into
things no one would recognize as computers: appliances, cars,
roadways, clothes, even rivers and cornfields. Tomorrow, many
of these things will think, thanks to breakthroughs in cognitive
computing. Even the things that don’t think themselves will
continue collecting and reporting the massive quantities of
data that feed cognitive systems.

Every day an average of 30,000 new websites are identified as distributing malicious code to site visitors. This helped contribute to the 43% of U.S. companies that experienced data breaches in 2014 alone.
But not all dangers to computers and laptops come from malicious code picked up over the Internet. A study by IDC and the National University of Singapore revealed that in 2014, businesses worldwide would spend nearly $500 billion to deal with the problems caused by malware on pirated software.
