Brocade: Tight 2015 Budgets to Drive Efficiency Demands

E-mail Print PDF

According to a Brocade-commissioned survey of UK-based IT Decision Makers (ITDMs), the top IT department priority for 2015 is increasing efficiency, as organisations demand to get more value out of their spending.

IT IndustryThe survey reveals 53% of IT leaders see increasing efficiency as their top priority. Why? Mainly budget restrictions, as only 31% of organisations expect an increase in their IT capital spending for the coming year, while 69% predict budgets will either stay flat or decrease.

However a demand for change remains-- just 31% of surveyed ITDMs are "very confident" their current network infrastructure can handle the demands likely to be placed on it on the next 12 months. 33% are prioritising the improvement of existing infrastructure, while 32% are focusing to simply keep existing infrastructure up and running for another year.

"Take a jog while you’re taking a meeting," the company says. "Listen in on a session while rocking your baby to sleep-— no squirming into your pockets and fumbling with your phone needed." Actually, we think not. Have you actually tried holding a conversation while jogging? And what if the baby decides to start squalling, like babies tend to sometimes do?

SSL Flaw Warning: POODLE

E-mail Print PDF

Google researchers discover a legacy SSL 3.0 protocol vulnerability, one potentially exposing users of newer Transport Layer Security (TLS) encryption protocols to risk-- Padding Oracle On Downgraded Legacy Encryption, aka POODLE.

POODLEUnlike its namesake, POODLE is not too cuddly. Instead, it allows man-in-the-middle attackers to access and read encrypted communications via padding oracle side-channel attack.

SSL 3.0 made its debut back in 1996, but remains a widely used cryptography protocol. Nearly all browsers support it, and use it as a fallback in case of HTTPS server bugs. Thus, network attackers can cause connection failures and trigger SSL 3.0 use in order to exploit the vulnerability.
