Cybercriminals Have Set Their Sights on the Energy Sector

The Associated Press recently reported that oil and gas companies, including some of the largest in the industry that operate along the Gulf Coast near Houston, have become a popular target for hackers. Many companies are using decades-old technology and unprotected wireless signals to connect computer networks to equipment, leaving refineries, pipelines, and chemical plants vulnerable to attack. In fact, the Houston Chronicle reported 350 security incidents and uncovered nearly 900 security flaws at energy companies between 2011 and 2015.

How LoRaWAN Combined with a Satellite Network Optimizes IoT Connectivity

How LoRaWAN Combined with a Satellite Network Optimizes IoT Connectivity

For many Internet of Things (IoT) applications, long range, low cost and low power consumption are the most important connectivity factors, and that makes many common network technologies impractical.  For example, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi offer low power consumption and provide reliable connectivity in small spaces at a low cost, but lack the coverage required for the IoT. 3G, 4G/LTE and 5G networks deliver connectivity over longer distances but consume a lot of power at a high cost.

How Hyper-Convergence Simplifies Multisite IT

How Hyper-Convergence Simplifies Multisite IT

In our last post, we discussed some of the challenges IT teams face when managing and maintaining multisite operations. Every location requires IT resources, ranging from a few PCs and a network to a full-blown mini data center with one or more servers and data storage resources. Branch offices may also need their own phone systems, point-of-sale systems and other services that fall under the aegis of IT.
