22 Jun 2017 WannaCry Ransomware Attacks Expose Some Third-Party Support Models [64499]
By Michael Hickins in Forbes

Michael writes in Forbes, "Support services offered by some third-party vendors run directly counter to newly issued federal guidelines for thwarting malicious software. The guidelines, issued in May by the US Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT, a cybersecurity agency within the US Department of Homeland Security), are a response to the WannaCry ransomware attacks that brought down critical IT infrastructure worldwide.

Malicious software like WannaCry exploits vulnerabilities in software to cripple the IT infrastructure that is critical to running many businesses. Motivation for this type of attack ranges from the financial to the political, and the outcome can be ruinous for affected organizations.

21 Jun 2017 VDI Planning: The Network Perspective [64464]
NetworkComputing, June 21st 2017

"Make sure your network can support virtual desktops before deployment.

Virtual desktops can be a great way to easily deploy common desktop environments in a centrally managed way. But before you pull the trigger on a VDI rollout, you must look at all aspects of the infrastructure to determine if the network can support it. So often I hear conversations about VDI that focus on server hardware, licensing, and application integration.
