Trend Micro Teams Up with Moxa to Secure and Accelerate Industrial Internet of Things Applications

Grazed from Trend Micro and Moxa

Trend Micro Incorporated, a global leader in cybersecurity solutions, has announced a new partnership with Moxa Inc., a leader in industrial communication and networking, as part of its Technology Alliance Partner Program to jointly develop state-of-the-art solutions to protect Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) environments like smart manufacturing and smart energy.

IIoT projects offer organizations across a range of sectors the opportunity to become more agile, efficient and cost effective. In manufacturing, oil and gas, and transportation, adoption of solutions is estimated to have reached 86 percent. Surging interest in IIoT is also driving a rapidly growing smart city market predicted to be worth over $2.5 trillion by 2025.

However, IIoT cyber risk continues to grow and threaten the success of IIoT applications. Insecure devices and networks can be exploited to sabotage industrial equipment, leveraged to cause damaging ransomware outages, or used to reach sensitive stores of corporate data elsewhere on enterprise networks. Many organizations struggle with securing their IIoT devices because these devices are at the crossroads of IT and OT organizations. The responsibility for their security is often unclear.

A Brief Introduction to the History of Hyper-V Failover Clusters

A Hyper-V failover cluster is a group of Hyper-V hosts that can synchronize in a way so that one host can take the load (virtual machines, services, processes, etc) if another fails or suffers performance issues. Windows Server Administrators who wish to fortify their server workloads have a helpful option - Hyper-V failover clustering - right inside Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2016, and 5nine Manager.

Genomics & the Cloud: What's Next?

Article Written by Avery Phillips

Saving patient data to the cloud can mean using big data to improve medicine and discover problems that doctors might have missed. Uploading an entire gene sequence and studying the sequence - a branch of molecular biology known as genomics - could have an even bigger impact on medicine as a whole in the coming years. Let's look at the good and bad of the future of genomics and the cloud.

Personalized Gene Editing

One of the biggest advancements in recent years is CRISPR, a method of editing genes that has made editing individual genes much easier and cheaper than in the past. It can be used to fight world hunger by making plants produce more fruit or become more resistant to anything from weather, insects, or blight, and even edit a person's genes. It's not quite at the stage where it's ready for humans, but it's close. 

Now, combine an easy way to edit genes with big data. First, the patient's gene sequence is uploaded to the cloud. This lets a computer comb through and identify what could be changed with CRISPR, to either reduce the chance for disease or eliminate it entirely could be in our near future. It seems like something out of a sci-fi movie, but it could very soon be a reality. Using big data to essentially crowdsource the solution to medical problems is not new, however.

Smart Availability - The Key for Producing Business Value Through Digital Transformation

Written By Don Boxley, CEO and Co-Founder, DH2i (www.dh2i.com)

One needn’t be a technology expert to realize that an outage or loss of service of any type or any length of time is unacceptable for today’s business organization (of course, nonprofits and government organizations are not very keen on downtime either). Even during the wee hours of the morning, “planned” system downtime is becoming less and less tolerable, especially given today’s global economy. While most are asleep in one geography, it is prime business hours in another.
Availability has become a chief priority for most IT professionals in today’s business organizations, whether your compute resources are located onsite, in the cloud, or spread across a hybrid environment. What IT professionals are beginning to realize, is that traditional options for high availability (HA) have limitations, and that continuous operational efficiency shouldn’t monopolize an organization’s financial or personnel resources with endless testing and retesting of availability.
