Why Apple Enterprise Management Is Essential for Remote Worker Security

The remote-work trend was gaining momentum before the pandemic. In fact, Gallup reported in 2012 that 39% of U.S. employees worked from home in some capacity; by 2016, that number jumped to 43%. With COVID-19, millions more either opted to work remotely or were required to because of corporate policies or state mandates.With a growing number of employees at home, workplaces need to figure out solutions for managing and securing all of these remote devices, while still ensuring employees stay connected and remain productive. If they rely on Apple devices, Apple enterprise management is the answer.To read this article in full, please click here

Expand your brand's online reach by selling directly through Facebook & Instagram

Traditionally, we visited brick-and-mortar stores to go shopping, but our behavior has slowly shifted towards e-commerce transactions, which has been sped up considerably by quarantine restrictions. Now, customers either visit a brand’s website to purchase from their e-commerce shop directly, or purchase items from established e-commerce marketplaces like Amazon, eBay, and Etsy. However, social media’s pervasiveness offers brands an untapped audience full of new e-commerce customers. Facebook alone currently has over 2.7 billion monthly active users. That’s over a fourth of the human population! Add other social media platforms to the mix, and you’ll find more social media users than not. To read this article in full, please click here

Understanding Zapier, the workflow automation platform for small biz

As more and more work processes become digitized through the use of cloud applications, companies are finding it easier to automate mundane and repetitive tasks. Uploading files, creating calendar events and sending text messages to colleagues may seem trivial in isolation, but they can add up — taking away time and attention from more useful tasks.“One of the biggest advantages of automation in the workplace is time savings,” said Wade Foster, CEO of workflow automation platform Zapier. The Sunnyvale, CA-based software firm has attracted some 1.8 million paid and free users since its launch in 2011, and claims its tools save users an average of 10 hours a week.To read this article in full, please click here

BrandPost: Big Data Drives Efficient Public Services

Amid digital transformation, big data is emerging as a major pillar of public sector IT strategy. Government agencies can increase their efficiency and effectiveness by breaking down data silos and creating one common view of their big data. But they must do so, of course, within the legal framework of their country.The Huawei Big-Data platform offers the following advantages: Agility Provides a range of data processing capabilities, covering converged data warehouse, offline processing, real-time stream computing, real-time retrieval, interactive query, and relationship analysis. Supports unified multi-cluster and multi-tenant management. Supports rolling upgrades with zero downtime. Uses Elk and Spark SQL that are compliant with SQL standards. Intelligence The graph database responds to correlated data analyses covering tens of billions of records within seconds, promptly returning query results covering hundreds of billions of relationships spanning tens of billions of nodes. RTD enables millisecond-level real-time risk control, making the shift from post-event to real-time risk control. This solution has integrated more than ten algorithms to allow unified algorithm management and improve resource utilization of AI clusters by about 100%. Convergence Provides DLF for one-stop data integration, development, and management. Converges Hadoop and MPPDB data. Deploys x86 and ARM server hybrid. These capabilities make it possible to support vital public services functions so that public services agencies can create a truly data-driven environment where decisions are made based on accurate data.To read this article in full, please click here

A pre-Thanksgiving all-clear to install patches

In the U.S., we’re quickly coming up to the start of holiday season, meaning it’s time for, well, time off. I typically add technology maintenance jobs to the monthly mix of patching and maintaining servers and workstations. This month, I’m also taking time to better understand the impact of one specific security bulletin — I honestly can’t figure out exactly what I’m supposed to do to keep my network secure. The good news: for most readers, none of these concerns apply to you. I’m ready to give the all-clear to go ahead and install Microsoft’s November updates on laptops, desktops and workstations — especially if you are running the Windows 10 1909 feature release. That said, do your Thanksgiving Zoom get-together first and then install any updates. I’d hate to have you see nothing but the spinning wheel of Windows updates instead of your family and friends.To read this article in full, please click here

3 pandemic-related trends for 2021

When we shifted rapidly from working in offices to working from home early this year, we weren’t at all ready. I’ve heard stories of employees who stripped their offices of everything but their phones because they lacked office furniture at home; workers who got thousands of dollars to buy home office equipment; and employees who got nothing other than a “good luck.”But tech companies have been watching, and in 2021 we will see several new trends affecting laptops and the arrival of some exciting product bundles. I want to talk about the three most interesting to me this week.Branded office bundles One problem with the rush to work and study from home is that support organizations have been hammered by problems resulting from that lack of consistency. To address this problem, vendors are putting together bundles that — at a minimum — include a router (where many support problems  originate) to meet company standards regarding security, management, and reliability. Other than that, it isn’t yet clear what the bundles might contain and whether they will be packaged together (more likely from an online vendor than in a store) or connected by brand, so employees can build their bundle from approved parts. (The latter would more likely be in-store.)To read this article in full, please click here

Being able to install Linux apps on Chrome OS opens up some fascinating new possibilities — particularly if you're an advanced user.After all, while a Chromebook's standard combo of web apps, Chrome apps, and Android apps is more than sufficient for most folks' needs, some of us still require (or maybe just prefer) traditional local programs for certain specific purposes. The presence of Linux apps on Chrome OS means we can have our cake and eat it, too — by enjoying the speed, simplicity, and security of a Chromebook while also embracing the occasional heavy-duty desktop app.To read this article in full, please click here

Deciphering (and understanding) Microsoft’s patch management options

If you asked a normal user what they dislike most about Windows 10, the answer would likely be related to patching, rebooting and the generally confusing update process. Entire web sites have sections devoted to explaining the updating process and how to manage it — and I’ve written my fair share about the topic. In addition to writing about Microsoft patches here (and about Windows security for CSO), I’m also a moderator on the Patchmanagement.org listserve. We have many people who rely on various patching tools to deploy updates and maintain workstations.  There are a number of options, so it’s important to understand how they work (and how they vary) so you can get the most out of them.To read this article in full, please click here
