The cloud is a game changer for the IT industry, optimizing data storage and operations. As Mobile Device Manager Plus embraces the SaaS model with the launch of its cloud edition, here’s a highlight of the top five benefits of a cloud-hosted MDM suite. 

#1 Reduced infrastructure expenditure. 

The cloud edition of Mobile Device Manager Plus doesn’t require anything more than a good computer with a functional operating system  and a browser.

What Private Equity Means for SolarWinds Users

Well, that was fast. Less than two weeks after SolarWinds committed to reviewing its “strategic alternatives,” the review is complete and the alternative chosen. The winning strategy? Go private.

Yesterday, SolarWinds announced that it is being taken private by Silver Lake Partners and Thoma Bravo, two prominent private equity firms. Technically, this is an acquisition. For SolarWinds stockholders – including SolarWinds management – it’s great news that pays $60.10 per share. For SolarWinds customers, the jury is still out.

I don’t have crystal ball, but I’ve been through the “go-private” drill. Under a go-private structure, a company pays out shareholders by rai

Nothing like letting customers know they are important – until they are not! Recently, SolarWinds announced that it is “reviewing its strategic alternatives” with respect to the company. Here’s how the company’s CEO described the situation in its press release: 

“Consistent with its duties, our board of directors has determined that it is prudent to undertake a review to see which alternative or alternatives, including our standalone plan, are the best way to maximize shareholder value,” said Kevin Thompson, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer. “As the board conducts its review, we remain focused on strong revenue growth and cash flow and exc

One of the earliest in-flight entertainment (IFE) systems was believed to have been inside the airship Hindenburg, which offered passengers a piano, lounge and bar as entertainment. The definition of in-flight entertainment has changed over the decades. From pianos to personal audio players and seat-fitted screens, we’ve come a long way.

The state-of-the-art IFE was on display earlier this year at the Paris Air Show. There, attendees found IFE systems that use iris-tracking technology to pause programs when passengers stop looking at the screen and restart the programs when the passengers’ gaze returns. Other advances at the show enable IFE systems to sync with personal devices to make IFE more us…

Can You Get over This Stagefright?

This news can cause a bit more flutter in your stomach than the butterflies did when you went on stage the first time. Stagefright, Android’s media playback engine, is on the hacker’s radar due to the bugs in the platform that make it vulnerable to threats. Joshua Drake, a researcher from Zimperium zLabs, a mobile security firm, discovered these bugs recently.

Technical experts consider Stagefright to be the worst Android vulnerability that could affect the performance of nearly a billion Android devices that are currently in use worldwide – except for the ones that use Android 2.1 and below. That is, most Android devices are susceptible to serious security threa

No one is safe out on the virtual streets of cyber world, and security breaches surface quite frequently to remind us of the same. Lately, the U.S. federal agencies are the  favorite hot spots for hackers. Two weeks ago, the high-tech system of Internal Revenue Service (IRS) was hacked and the personal data of over 100,000 U.S. taxpayers was stolen while the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) suffered what appears to be one of the largest U.S. Government data theft. Cyber criminals broke into the OPM database and accessed the identity information of at least 4 million federal workers. Such attacks expose the sophisticated methods that cyber criminals use and the vulnerability of even the largest of enterp
