Feeling safe because your vulnerability scanner has given you the all-clear? Got your system all compliant and successfully passed all audits? You should still be wary. Automated tools and certificates are important, but have their limits. Attackers use gateways that vulnerability scanners don’t find. Penetration tests are the only way to get a complete picture of your security.

You may remember that on 13 August 2019, Microsoft issued a somewhat under-the-radar security advisory urging customers to change two Active Directory settings to protect their domain controllers. The recommended changes, which concern LDAP connections, may have a substantial impact on your IT infrastructure. And it’s important that you act now...

In mid-March 2020, a patch from Microsoft will increase the security of the domain controllers by preventing LDAP communication via Simple Bind. This has consequences for you.

Mobile platforms are wildly popular, making them a prime target for hackers and data thieves who live for security breaches, man-in-the-middle attacks and compromised applications. Our webinar with MobileIron will show you how to quickly identify threats on mobile devices, allowing you to take swift action.

Employees are increasingly demanding more flexibility in the workplace. As employees returned to their offices, they were forced to deal with the fact that they may have to retreat back to the safety of their homes at very short notice. There are still only limited possibilities to travel and meet others in person and gatherings are still largely taking place online, and the only way to meet these new challenges is by implementing new workplace paradigms such as going hybrid.

Imagine you work in the IT department at an SME. You wake up every morning knowing that you have a long to-do list to get through. You’re up to your elbows upgrading a NAS server when a colleague from sales comes by. He can’t turn his notebook on and has an important presentation in a couple of hours that he still needs to prepare for. You put the upgrade on the back burner and get down to trying solve his issue, losing valuable time as you go.

Business are facing a raft of challenges: Developing new business models, the complexity of the modern world of work, time-intensive admin and trying to position themselves as a more attractive employer to name but a few. Is it possible to simplify or even automate these processes?

Technology region, UNESCO City of Media Arts, SMART City—all terms that describe Karlsruhe. These, alongside the Karlsruhe Institute for Technology and the Centre for Art and Media, make Baden-Württemberg’s second-largest city a driving force in digitalisation—and we’re at its heart. The city’s a digital pioneer and you’ll find out what that means for us and our everyday business in this blog.

The times where classic backups were enough to keep your data protected are over. The rapidly growing complexity of IT systems and the exploding amounts of data make storage and protection of IT workloads costly and complicated—and complicated often means neither well protected or secure.

For many companies, the ability to succeed and grow revenues depends on a loyal customer base. When your customers are happy with your product or service, when they can relate to your company, that’s when they return to you rather than turn to the competition. That’s why companies spend a lot of time and money on customer relations. And it’s also why the damage can be devastating when criminals break into corporate accounts and end the bond that took so long to build. So how can you prevent frauds from bruising your reputation in the first place? We’ll show you how you can help your employees protect the integrity of your brand and what steps you should take right now.

German SMEs have long been top targets for cyber-attacks and with good reason. From an attacker’s point of view, the obstacles put in their path are easy to circumvent and successful attacks tend to be uncovered when it’s far too late. Another point is that the damage that can be inflicted on these businesses is comparatively big which is illustrated, for example, by the large ransom that is demanded in the course of an attack. This means that attacks receive big pay-outs for minimal effort.

F5 Networks has announced a critical vulnerability in security systems that are frequently used by customers in the DMZ. Successful exploitation of this vulnerability enables attackers to run arbitrary code with administrator rights on the target system. The code is simply sent as a specially formatted query to the Traffic Management User Interface without the need for any previous authentication.

Shifting responsibility for IT to Managed Service Providers is common practice in many companies today. But does this mean it’s easier to facilitate a paradigm shift in IT? Yes, says Ingo Janßen, Business Manager for Managed Services at Bechtle.

Four topics for 2023 that businesses and organisations need to bear in mind when thinking about their modern worlds of work.

Digitalisation is presenting a challenge to public administration. At the beginning of March, key players got together at the Digitaler Staat (Digital State) Congress in Berlin to define necessary steps. Hans-Henning Lühr, State Counsellor at the Senate Department of Finance of the Free Hanseatic City of Bremen and Chair of the IT Planning Council, expects that politics and administration will take a completely new direction in terms of public services, summing up “we need new statecraft”.

The Microsoft world revolves around Teams, Viva and IT security. The tech giant based in Redmond publishes so many updates that users can’t always keep up with developments. In this blog, I’ll show you what’s new in MS Teams, Viva and MS 365 Defender solutions.

“We need three more graphics cards right now!” Sound like a familiar demand from your developers? New technologies such as GPU-intensive artificial intelligence require increasingly flexible infrastructures as they can quickly push traditional rack and blade servers past their limits. In the UCS X platform, Cisco is now combining the best of both architectures.

Software-defined Networking (SDN) have become established in data centre networks and enterprise network infrastructures with Intent-based Networking (IBN) being the next stage in the evolution where the focus is firmly on business benefits and the best possible support by the network.
