Multi-risks in the Multi-cloud: An Industry Perspective

Even if the enterprise security team has a handle on its individual clouds, multiple secure clouds are not the same thing as a secure multi-cloud. This requires a single secure enterprise network that spans the data center (physical or software defined) and all the private and public clouds to which an organization subscribes.

Faster than the speed of steam?

A team of British eccentrics has broken the 103-year-old record for a steam-powered car, previously standing at 127mph.

The good news about all this is that it does give us an excuse to look at the speed of security devices. Picking up your favourite data sheet, you can see speeds quoted based on link speeds, up to values...
