Every day an average of 30,000 new websites are identified as distributing malicious code to site visitors. This helped contribute to the 43% of U.S. companies that experienced data breaches in 2014 alone.
But not all dangers to computers and laptops come from malicious code picked up over the Internet. A study by IDC and the National University of Singapore revealed that in 2014, businesses worldwide would spend nearly $500 billion to deal with the problems caused by malware on pirated software.
Advanced image analysis and computer vision are key components of today’s AI revolution and is becoming critical for a wide range of industry applications, including healthcare, where this technology is being used to detect anomalies and improve patient care. Due to a lack of integrated tools and experience with these cutting-edge technologies, however, deploying complete systems is difficult.
Applications that utilize deep learning approaches often require large amounts of highly parallel compute power, storage, and networking capabilities, along with performance optimizations for faster data analysis. The Intel and QNAP/IEI solution combines all these elements in one complete system for scalable data management for hospitals and clinics of all sizes.

The crisis of mass power consumption in the corporate data center has come to a head. Power required to run data centers in the U.S. is estimated to be as much as that produced by five power plants in a year. Energy expenditures and requirements have doubled in the last five years, and computer disposal is the fastest growing type of waste in the world, according to top Stanford researchers and Greenpeace.

The Trend Toward Liquid Cooling
Recent IDC surveys of the worldwide high performance computing (HPC) market consistently show that cooling today's larger, denser HPC systems has become a top challenge for datacenter managers. The surveys reveal a notable trend toward liquid cooling systems, and warm water cooling has emerged as an effective alternative to chilled liquid cooling.
Innovative data-driven strategies are enabling organizations to connect with customers and increase operational efficiency as never before. These new initiatives are built on a multitude of applications, such as big-data analytics, supply chain, and factory automation. On average, organizations are now 53% digital as they create new ways of operating and growing their businesses, according to the Computerworld 2017 Forecast Study.
As part of this transformation, enterprises rely increasingly on multivendor, multicloud environments that mix on-premise, private, and public cloud services and workloads. This shift is causing enterprises to increase network capacity; 55% of enterprises in the Computerworld study expect to add network bandwidth in the next 12 months.
Breakthroughs in artificial intelligence (AI) have captured the imaginations of business and technical leaders alike: computers besting human world-champions in board games with more positions than there are atoms in the universe, mastering popular video games, and helping diagnose skin cancer. The AI techniques underlying these breakthroughs are finding diverse application across every industry. Early adopters are seeing results; particularly encouraging is that AI is starting to transform processes in established industries, from retail to financial services to manufacturing.

In August 2008, Computerworld invited IT and business leaders to participate in a core network services survey, that included specific questions about their DNS infrastructures and the costs of IP address management. The survey was fielded via targeted broadcasts to Computerworld customers, as well as through an invitation on Computerworld.com. The survey was commissioned by Infoblox, but the data was gathered and tabulated independently by Computerworld Research. The following report represents top-line results of that survey.

Today’s advanced cyber threats target every computer and
mobile device, including enterprise endpoints, especially
those that make up critical infrastructure like industrial
control systems and embedded devices that control much
of our physical world. The modern computing landscape
consists of a complex array of physical, mobile, cloud, and
virtual computing, creating a vast attack surface. Meanwhile,
the cybersecurity industry is prolific with defense-in-depth
security technologies, despite a threat landscape that remains
highly dynamic, sophisticated, and automated.
Cylance, however, takes a unique and innovative approach
of using real-time, mathematical, and machine learning
threat analysis to solve this problem at the endpoint for
organizations, governments, and end-users worldwide.
