As with all things to do with technology, the role of a CIO is also undergoing a remarkable transformation. With growth as their key priority, CIOs are expected to walk a fine tightrope in order to unlock new growth and save costs, whilst also driving innovation and change - all as quickly as possible. In this high-pressure environment, the cloud can enable CIOs to harness the best transformational tools and leverage data, in an extremely cost-effective manner. So why isn’t every business running in the cloud? Despite the technology’s benefits, many businesses remain unsure how to move to the cloud or why it’s important to take the leap sooner, rather than later.

Verizon launches 5G fixed wireless in parts of 21 more cities

Article | April 20, 2021

Communications giant Verizon last week launched 5G for Business Internet in 20 new markets, targeting SMBs and enterprises alike. The fixed-wireless plans provide download speeds of 100Mbps ($69/month), 200Mbps ($99/month), and 400Mbps ($199/month) with no data limits. Upload speeds are slower. Verizon is also offering a 10-year price lock for new customers with no long-term contract required. “As 5G Business Internet scales into new cities, businesses of all sizes can gain access to the superfast speeds, low latency and next-gen applications enabled by 5G Ultra-Wideband, with no throttling or data limits,” Tami Erwin, CEO of Verizon Business, said in a statement. “We’ll continue to expand the 5G Business Internet footprint and bring the competitive pricing, capability, and flexibility of our full suite of products and services to more and more businesses all over the country.” The service was previously launched in parts of Chicago, Houston and Los Angeles. Verizon started rolling out 5G services last year using lower spectrum bands. According to a study by IHS Markit’s RootMetrics, Verizon offers speeds similar to those of T-Mobile but behind AT&T.

5 Essential Principles for Managing SD-Branch Security

Article | March 5, 2020

Software-defined wide-area networking (SD-WAN) is revolutionizing the way that local branches are managed. As we’ve previously pointed out in our article on 4 things you should know about SD-Branch, it is being used to enable faster cloud adoption and greatly improve centralized control over the systems running in branch offices. Unfortunately, these advantages also come with some downsides. As SD-WAN has developed in SD-Branch, the number of IoT and end-user devices connected to these networks has grown exponentially. This means that the surface attack area of the average SD-Branch setup has increased enormously over the past few years. At the same time, business-critical applications are now sharing more data than ever over broadband internet connections, exposing critical data to interception or disruption.

We Need to Talk About ‘Cloud Neutrality’

Article | February 10, 2020

We spent a lot of years talking about net neutrality the idea that the companies that provide access to the internet shouldn’t unfairly block, slow down, or otherwise interfere with traffic even if that traffic competes with their services. But there’s an even bigger issue brewing, and it’s time to start talking about it: cloud neutrality. “While its name sounds soft and fluffy,” Microsoft president and general counsel Brad Smith and coauthor Carol Ann Browne write in their recent book, Tools and Weapons: The Promise and the Peril of the Digital Age, “in truth the cloud is a fortress.” Their introduction describes the modern marvel of the data center: a 2 million-square-foot, climate-controlled facility made up of colossal electrical generators, diesel fuel tanks, battery arrays, and bulletproof doors
