VMware adds Mozy to its cloud and virtualization empire

Mozy is one of the most popular cloud backup services around, with more than one million users storing around 70 petabytes of data. Its popularity apparently put it on the acquisition radar of VMware -- which has now made Mozy part of its virtualization empire. VMware's official blog post makes it clear that the company wasn't so much interested in Mozy as a consumer offering. Rather, it's t...

Google Apps customers can now purchase additional storage on the cheap

A while back, Google started offering inexpensive storage upgrades for Google Docs storage. Now, users with a domain set up on Google Apps can purchase additional storage, too. The change means you can boost your disk space to 20GB for a paltry $5 per year, or a whopping 1TB for $256 per year (which works out to about $22 per month). That's a very reasonable price for additional cloud storage, ...

Intel acquisition of McAfee approved by regulators

In August of 2010, Intel announced it was purchasing McAfee for a cool $7.7 billion in cash. The deal had been held up by U.S. and EU regulators ever since, but the transaction has finally been given the all-clear. The two companies plan to develop security solutions which more tightly integrate hardware and software, a move both claim is imperative in today's rapidly evolving threat landsca...

Cisco kills off Web-based email service

Cisco has conceded defeat in the Web-based email game. The enterprise powerhouse just couldn't make a dent against players like Microsoft and Google, and announced today that it would shut down its WebEx hosted webmail product. WebEx debuted a couple years ago and was built upon software from PostPath, which Cisco acquired in 2008 for $215 million. At $5 per user per month, Cisco provided on...

iPhone users most vulnerable to phishing attacks, BlackBerry users the most resilient

In sad and lamentable news, it turns out that mobile users are three times more likely than desktop users to give up their personal details to phishing websites. Even worse, despite only making up 26% of the US smartphone market, 65% of successful attacks are on iPhone users. Android, with 24% of the market represents only 9% of phishing attacks -- but BlackBerry comes on top, with 36% of the mark...

Google Apps adds DKIM email signing to help fight spam

That battle against spam is a never ending one for sysadmins, and Google has announced that they're giving Apps admins a brand new weapon: DKIM, or Domain Keys Identified Mail. DKIM allows administrators to validate outgoing email messages with a digital signature, and Google is making it available to all Apps customers at no cost. Enabling DKIM on your domain is as simple as a few mouse clicks i...

Google declares Chrome ready for enterprise duty

IT administrators tend to be a fickle bunch, and with good reason. When you're supporting a vital service that can determine whether or not your entire business can operate properly, you tend to be very cautious when it comes to changing out a key component. A key component like a Web browser, for example -- say, Internet Explorer 6, which is still a force to be reckoned with in the enterprise. ...

UniBrows add-on enables IE6 browsing in an IE8 tab

Despite its accelerated demise on personal computers, Internet Explorer 6 remains a force to be reckoned with in the enterprise. There are simply too many mammoth companies running applications that depend upon the grizzled, old browser for it to disappear from the market share charts any time soon. A company called Browsium thinks they might have a magic pill, however. It's called UniBrows, a...

Half of all companies will continue to use Windows XP after it retires in 2014

According to a shocking report, 48% of IT administrators intend to continue running Windows XP after Microsoft officially retires it in 2014. The "IT [sector] just really, really likes the XP operating system," says Diane Hagglund, a senior analyst at Dimensional Research, reporting on the findings of a survey of 950 IT professionals. "They say it's just that good, and don't want to mess with it."...

Adobe Connect 8 Flash-based Web conferencing solution announced with Android and iPhone support

Yesterday, Adobe announced the next version of Adobe Connect, its Flash Player-based Web conferencing and online meeting solution. For those unfamiliar with Adobe Connect, previously known as Macromedia Breeze and Presedia Publishing System, it is Adobe's browser-based answer to things like Cisco's video conferencing systems, Citrix's GoToMeeting, or in a very basic sense, Skype's screen shar...

Canon to launch system that blocks banned words from being printed, scanned or faxed

The upcoming version of Canon's document management system, Uniflow 5, will have a keyword-based security system. A user will not be able print, scan, copy or fax any document that contains a banned word. Uniflow (or 'uniFLOW'), which is only available on very high-end (and expensive) Canon products, is a management suite used by large businesses -- such as law firms -- that need to keep track...

Google Chrome's Remoting feature inches closer to usability

Remoting -- which looks to be Google Chrome's answer to RDP and Terminal Services computing -- has taken yet another step toward its inevitable debut. In recent Chromium snapshot builds, Remoting now appears on the about:labs page. However, unlike the other Labs options -- like side tabs, tabbed settings, and Instant -- Remoting still isn't usable. After enabling and restarting Chromium, you'l...

Admin templates for Google Chrome make it more enterprise-friendly

System admins generally aren't fond of rolling out new software to their users if they don't have a measure of control over what those users can and can't do with the app in question. Google knows that, and they've been working for a while now to add enterprise-friendly policy support to Chrome. Now, Google has made policy templates available for download which provide a measure of lockdown fu...

Will policy support help Google Chrome make enterprise gains?

While Google Chrome has seen plenty of uptake from enthusiasts, developers, and end users at home, enterprise environments have always been a bit tougher to penetrate. Internet Explorer is still king of the hill when it comes to enterprise browsing -- and even Firefox has only recently begun to make serious inroads. One thing which might help is the addition of policy support to Chrome. With a...
