Slough UK:  Opengear has announced its most impressive year in EMEA with across the board growth.

2014 has seen Opengear continue to enhance its flagship IM7200 series, the industry's most advanced infrastructure management solution featuring dual fibre ports and high-speed, low latency 4G LTE remote management options, with a host of new features. Opengear has also launched the new CM7100 family of console servers that also benefits from these innovations including an extension of its Smart OOB™ capabilities to monitor critical network and power devices, alerting admins to important events. A key complement to Smart OOB™ is the new Failover to Cellular (F2C) feature, which ensures uninterrupted connectivity for remote networks during primary WAN downtime. Opengear’s Smart OOB™ combined with F2C enables companies to monitor, access, manage and automatically remediate their remote networks, from anywhere, to improve operational efficiency and resilience. An industry first!

A new initiative to help jewellers, pawnbrokers and police to identify and trace stolen watches is being launched in January by intelligence sharing organisation, SaferGems.

Acting as a central database of watches’ serial numbers, the SaferGems Watch Register will enable jewellers and pawnbrokers to check the provenance of second-hand items with a single phone call or email. Hosted by the British Security Industry Association (BSIA), the Watch Register is operated by SaferGems, a joint initiative established by the BSIA in partnership with a number of prominent organisations including TH March Insurance Brokers, the National Association of Goldsmiths (NAG) and the British Jewellers’ Association (BJA).

Cloud computing is increasingly becoming part of the enterprise IT landscape. In fact, a recent cloud security survey conducted by HP reveals that 70 percent of all respondents say their company is using some form of the cloud. The study also found that cloud penetration jumps to 80 percent for enterprise-size organizations. With such dramatic growth figures, it is no wonder that enterprise companies are carefully reviewing cloud security policies’ implication on cloud data. Here’s another fact from that same survey: While more than half of those using the public cloud are confident that critical and sensitive data can be secured in the public cloud, 16 percent of all companies in the cloud reported at least one public cloud breach in the past 12 months.
