Protect Your Cloud Database with Top Strategies for Cloud Security

By | Security
Database and data security are major concerns for most organizations, with good reason. Bad actors are pervasive in our interconnected environment and staying one step ahead takes strategic planning and active management. With more and more databases hosted in the cloud, organizations must be particularly aware of the security risks and data protection strategies available. According to the 2019 Cloud Security Report from Synopsys, 93% of organizations reported being “moderately or extremely concerned about cloud security.” This is understandable, but this concern doesn’t outweigh the benefits of utilizing a cloud or hybrid infrastructure. Instead, the important focus should be on developing and maintaining a robust security strategy, identifying top products and service providers, and taking a proactive stance in your data security platform. Selecting a Secure Cloud Provider – One of the first steps in establishing and maintaining a secure cloud database for your company is identifying the best provider for your needs. Going with a well-established service provider, like Microsoft or Oracle, means peace of mind knowing that the company has an established record of industry-leading security practices. Saving a few dollars on the front end with lesser known providers is just not worth it if it opens up (more…)

By | Azure, Database Technology Trends, SQL Server
Extended support for SQL Server 2008 has ended, and there is no better time to consider a migration to Azure.

Connecting Devices Securely With the Azure Sphere

By | Azure
Customer experience is rising in importance for businesses these days, and one of the primary factors that customers value is efficiency. As more and more devices become connected, creating the Internet of Things (IOT), companies and products are able to provide enhanced services that can significantly improve the customer experience. The benefits of connectivity are clear, as are the roadblocks. Until recently, security was one of the biggest obstacles to overcome. That’s all changing with Microsoft’s new end-to-end solution, the Azure Sphere. It’s about Connecting those MCUs Microcontrollers are all around us, in toasters, ovens, microwaves, cars, thermostats, remotes, etc. These consumer products use what are essentially dedicated mini-computers, CPUs designed with specific tasks to achieve. These MCUs can be connected to the internet to improve performance, adapt to our interactions, and enhance customer experience, but very few of these MCUs are currently connected. This is because connectivity creates vulnerability for the device. Security breaches by bad actors can have disastrous results, and many companies have been staying away from the risk. But Microsoft was determined to create an environment that would allow companies to securely reap the benefits of connectivity with peace of mind. The development of the Azure (more…)

What is Azure Stack and Why Do You Need It?

By | Azure
Whether you are using Azure or not, I am sure you are familiar with the term. The Azure Cloud is the fastest growing cloud computing service out there and is quickly edging out AWS for the market. It is a powerful and expansive service that fully supports hybrid infrastructures for robust data management. You may not know quite as much about Azure Stack, so we wanted to shed some light on this Azure extension. What is Azure Stack? – This service is an addition to your Azure Cloud network that enables offline operations on your edge computing machines. It allows your on-site users to manage data, perform analyses, and even design queries using little bandwidth. Actions can be performed in an offline environment and then reserved for specific connection windows and deployed to the cloud. Let’s Talk About Edge Computing – Your network is a complicated series of user APIs and core network processing capabilities. Think of this overall structure as a web of interconnected strings leading back to the central data hub. Edge computing refers to the processes that take place farther away from your centralized network, literally at the edge of your web. We will discuss this in (more…)
