helpnetsecurity | June 20, 2019

Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) announced the continued expansion of its hybrid cloud portfolio with enhanced automation, more choice, workload-optimized solutions, and a consistent experience across clouds.These updates include extending AI-driven operations and composability across its portfolio, adding new workload-optimized infrastructure, and expanding choice of clouds through new partnerships with Google Cloud and Equinix. Businesses embracing digital transformation are moving critical workloads to the cloud, and are looking to tap an increasingly diverse portfolio of intelligent and automation services, and infrastructure platforms that simplify choice to improve their cloud experience. Organizations are making investments in multiple clouds, but they’re lacking operational consistency. HPE composable infrastructure uniquely provides a consistent operating model for virtualized, containerized, and bare-metal applications, to enable customers to compose fluid pools of compute, storage and networking with their choice of software stacks. Customers using HPE Synergy benefit.

City of Corona Modernizes IT with Citrix to Support Remote Work

Citrix | August 02, 2022

Organizations around the world continue to struggle with whether and how to enable remote work, but the City of Corona isn’t among them. The municipality embraced the concept long before the pandemic forced it to, and has built a powerful digital workspace that provides access to everything its employees need to engage and be productive, wherever they happen to be. On August 4, the City will discuss its journey to remote work and how it is using solutions from Citrix Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:CTXS) and its partner NVIDIA to accelerate it during an exclusive Fireside Chat. The journey began five years ago when the City of Corona, which sits in the heart of California earthquake and wildfire territory, implemented Citrix digital workspace solutions to “disaster proof” its operations. “In the event of an emergency, we need to be agile, We need access to our systems and our data and we’d like our employees to be able to work from anywhere." Kyle Edgeworth, Deputy CIO, City of Corona Citrix enables both. And following a successful pilot, Edgeworth and his team moved to modernize its IT infrastructure and cloud-first strategy to support a wider implementation. It started by dissociating traditional hardware from the computing equation and replacing it with Citrix’s cloud-delivered digital workspace solutions, Microsoft Azure NVv6 series powered by NVIDIA GPUs, NVIDIA virtual GPU technology and Azure Virtual Desktop. “We made the decision to ultimately transition everything to the cloud,” Edgeworth said. “Citrix was the logical choice to pair with Microsoft, as it enhances the value of Azure Virtual Desktop, providing enterprise tools that improve user density and performance, allow us to provision workloads on-demand, and simplify how our team manages images and applications.” There are benefits to using Citrix alongside NVIDIA as well. As a Citrix Ready™ Partner, NVIDIA virtual GPU technology is verified to work with Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops™ to power virtual workstations, desktops, and apps with an immersive user experience that keeps employees productive and engaged. Edgeworth will share additional insights on the City of Corona’s decision to go all-in on the cloud and how the municipality is leveraging virtual technologies to build a future-proof infrastructure to support remote work during the August 4 event. He will be joined by: Chris McMasters, Chief Information Officer, City of Corona Calvin Hsu, VP, Product Management, Citrix Vishal Ganeriwala, Senior Director, Product Management, NVIDIA About Citrix Citrix builds the secure, unified digital workspace technology that helps organizations unlock human potential and deliver a consistent workspace experience wherever work needs to get done. With Citrix, users get a seamless work experience and IT has a unified platform to secure, manage, and monitor diverse technologies in complex cloud environments.

VMware Advances Its Anywhere Workspace Platform

VMware | June 06, 2022

VMware Inc., a leading business software pioneer, announced enhancements to its VMware Workplace ONE anytime workspace platform that will make it simpler for IT teams to manage and protect all employee devices. Workspace ONE Mobile Threat Defense for superior mobile device security is one of the new features. Improved update/patch management capabilities for Windows OS devices Shankar Iyer, senior vice president and general manager, End-User Computing, VMware said that “As the frequency and sophistication of threats continue to intensify, IT teams need a way to proactively detect threats across the entire device population and respond quickly. That is a tall order for taxed IT and Sec-Ops teams. VMware Workspace ONE is ideally suited for the new security realities of enabling a hybrid workforce. Leveraging intelligence and injecting automation in every step of the process, it simplifies IT operations, improves security against modern threats, and empowers the best employee experience across any device, anywhere.” Best-in-Class Mobile Device Security The mobile threat environment is broad nowadays, and mobile workstyles need specific security against phishing and application, device, and rogue network-based attacks. VMware Workspace ONE Mobile Threat Defense, a new add-on to the market-leading Workspace ONE UEM platform, raises the bar for mobile security. It includes mobile security technology from Lookout, a market leader. Application-based risks, such as mobile malware, app vulnerabilities, and unsafe application behaviors and setups, are addressed by the solution. Phishing using email, SMS, and messaging applications exposes web and content vulnerabilities. Malicious URLs, malicious online pages, videos, and images, as well as site and content behaviors and setups, are all included. Device vulnerabilities and zero-day threats, including jailbreak and root access detection Device risk includes operating system version and update uptake. Machine-in-the-middle attacks include dangerous activities such as SSL certificate stripping, forcing weaker algorithm negotiation, abnormal application network connection activity, and vulnerabilities linked with rogue Wi-Fi. Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub can be used to enable application, device, and network security through Workspace ONE Mobile Threat Defense. This means that there are no separate applications or agents to download or install for IT, and essential information – such as alarms and proposed remedies – is communicated through a resource that workers utilize on a regular basis.
