Today, business is conducted in a fast-paced, on-demand, globally dispersed environment. Maintaining a competitive edge requires cohesive real-time collaboration. Mobile workers, partners, vendors, suppliers, and even customers expect to be able to work together seamlessly, both inside and outside the firewall. But delivering tools for high-quality collaboration is often challenging, due to the need for businesses of all sizes to support a wide range of personal and business devices. Mixing disparate devices with complex conferencing solutions often lead to frustrated employees, while businesses face a labor-intensive, costly endeavor without a high ROI. In addition, collaboration is evolving with businesses creating small "huddle" spaces and open workspaces that increase the demand for ubiquitous, effective conferencing.
The Intel Unite ' solution is a fast, simple, cost-efficient way to deliver a more secure, manageable, high-quality collaboration experience. Whether you select the
Security risks and breaches have become part of the daily landscape as companies and organizations of every size and in every vertical and industry announce that they have been compromised. In 2016 reported security breaches were up 40%, and this year is on pace to surpass that steep rise. Over the past year alone, there have been high-profile breaches in the gaming, financial services, hospitality, food service, consumer packaged goods, and retail sectors. Many of those breaches occurred due to vulnerabilities in applications and on websites. For example, this past April, the IRS announced a breach attributable to a tool designed to fetch data for the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form.
Data-driven asset performance management can help food & beverage manufacturers leverage tools such as equipment efficiency solutions, augmented reality and secure asset connection to transition from a reactive to a prescriptive approach. This will not only help reduce CapEx and OpEx, but also empower the workforce, whilst meeting manufacturing KPIs.
This report from Frost & Sullivan shows how manufacturers can achieve 20-30% cost savings by changing their asset maintenance approach.
As the number and variety of threats mushroom, an Ovum survey has found that security teams have become physically unable to respond in an appropriate way to the ones that actually matter, with 50% of respondents saying they deal with more than 50 alerts each day. Shockingly, for 6% of organizations, that figure rises to between 100 and 1,000 threats a day.
The solution? Ovum believes that security decision-makers should invest in centralized management capabilities, enabling them to control the disparate security tools in their infrastructure, and address the challenge of prioritizing the volumes of daily alerts they receive.

As the number and severity of cyberattacks continue to grow with no end in sight, cybersecurity teams are implementing new tools and processes to combat these emerging threats. However, the oneoverriding requirement for meeting this challenge is improved speed. Whether it’s speed of detection, speed of remediation or other processes that now need to be completed faster, the ability to do things quickly is key to effective cybersecurity.
The reason why speed is essential is simple: As the dwell time for malware
increases, the lateral spread of an attack broadens, the number of potentially breached files expands, and the difficulty in remediating the threat increases. And the stealthy nature of many of the newer threats makes finding them faster?before they become harder to detect?a critical focus in reducing the impact of an intrusion. These requirements make it essential that security operations centers (SOCs) can complete their activities
far more quickly, both now and moving forwa
