Amazon Cloud Gets More Business-Friendly

Amazon Web Services continues to woo Microsoft corporate customers, this time with a new Active Directory service.

One of the truisms about the growing cloud computing battle is that Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the largest competitor, by far, but that Microsoft Azure is a more corporate-friendly option. This comes as no surprise given that most big businesses today run tons of Microsoft Windows, Office applications, Exchange e-mail, SharePoint document sharing, SQL Server databases and what-have-you.

Underlying all that Microsoftian software is Active Directory, which provides a single-sign-on to various applications and makes sure only the right people have access to the right stuff. A version of Active Directory, cleverly called Azure Active Directory, also runs on Microsoft’s Azure cloud.

For those unfamiliar with this stuff, a public cloud is a massive set of shared computing, storage, and networking capability run data centers around the world. All of that power is available to rent, obviating the need for big customers to buy tons of new servers and storage on their own. Amazon was first into the pool here, having launched its storage service in 2006, but Microsoft is in now with Azure, IBM with SoftLayer and Google with Google Compute Cloud.

Why do we punish the victims of hacking?

2017-09-21 09:00:00 +0100

Hacks occur every 39 seconds, with 95% of them targeting governments, retailers and the tech industry. If the hackers are caught, they'll face prison time under the Computer Misuse Act. More often than not, the businesses who are victims of those attacks expose themselves to punishment of their own. The laws that determine the duty of protection owed to businesses and their customers is both vague and broad, making them question just how much protection...
