Importance of data
As Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg testifies this week before Congress, his social media behemoth faces intense scrutiny about a range of issues, including the purveyance of fake news, foreign interference in our elections and data privacy. Amid the hoopla surrounding the Zuckerberg appearance, the James Bond-like intrigue about Kremlin toadies and the spread of bogus stories into the political zeitgeist, the issue of data integrity may sound downright boring. But it is critically important.Whether consumers give data to social media companies such as Facebook or as part of an application for a credit card or checking account — or provide required information for a surgical procedure — the companies that possess and use the data have a responsibility to make sure that it remains protected. … [Read more...] about Mark Zuckerberg’s congressional testimony reflects the importance of data security
Gradually but surely, cloud infrastructure and services are penetrating deeper into the corporate IT environment. Cloud computing is changing everything from how businesses operate, to how they connect, to how they develop and deliver software and services.As organisations increase the amount of off-premise IT infrastructure they use, maintaining a high level of security and control over digital assets in the cloud becomes critical.Security has been a key concern hindering the cloud migration trend in recent years. According to a 2017 cloud security survey conducted by Crowd Research Partners, security topped the list of cloud inhibitors, with 33 per cent of respondents marking security risks as one of the biggest barriers to cloud adoption in their organisations.And while cloud security has many facets, one of the largest, most visible issues is the security and privacy of sensitive data. A range of highly publicised data leaks in recent years have resulted in financial loss, legal … [Read more...] about How to take charge of data encryption in the cloud era
You know the usual explanation: Carriers throttle their top data users to prevent network congestion. In other words, those power users with unlimited plans that like to gobble up obscene amounts of data are made to suffer somewhat so that everyone else won’t have to suffer through a network slowdown. Which makes perfect sense, except that apparently it simply isn’t true.Cell phone bill “optimization” specialist Validas examined a sample of over 55,000 cell phone bills from the U.S., and what they discovered is that the top 5% of unlimited data plans (the people who get throttled) use almost exactly the same amount of data as the top 5% of tiered data plan users. Put another way, the only difference between the people being throttled and those who aren’t is that the throttled users are still on grandfathered unlimited plans.So it appears that throttling is little more than a stick being wielded by some carriers to cajole unlimited data plan users to switch … [Read more...] about So, um, why exactly do carriers throttle the top 5% of data users again?
For most, the important numbers from the Super Bowl were 28-24 which of course was the final score in favor of New England. But for the four major U.S. carriers like Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint and AT&T, the more important figures are 13.2, 11.4, 8.8 and 5.7. Those are the data speeds (in Mbps) that the carriers achieved inside the stadium during the game.T-Mobile had the fastest 4G LTE network at the Super Bowl at 13.2Mbps. Verizon was next with a speed of 11.4Mbps, followed by AT&T and Sprint. Those two carriers sent data at 8.8Mbps and 5.7Mbps respectively. Inside the University of Phoenix Stadium, where 60% of the mobile devices carried the Verizon name, Big Red customers generated 4.1TB of data inside the stadium, up from the 1.9TB they created during last year's game. AT&T subscribers inside and outside the stadium accounted for 1.7TB of data use during Super Bowl 49. Sprint customers generated 754GB of data during the game, a gain of 259% over last year's Super Bowl. … [Read more...] about T-Mobile had the fastest LTE network at the Super Bowl, Verizon customers created 4.1TB of data
