  1. Microsoft previews new enterprise-only telemetry option for Windows 10 The company has launched a preview of a new enterprise-focused option that blocks Windows' telemetry from reaching Microsoft's servers. Rob Schultz Microsoft last week launched a preview of a new enterprise-only option that blocks Windows' telemetry from reaching Redmond's servers. The option wasn't given an official label in the July 23 announcement, but at the sign-up site was defined as "The Data Processor Service for Windows Enterprise" – a mouthful even for Microsoft, known for interminable titling. Marisa Rogers, the privacy officer responsible for Windows and Microsoft's browsers, pointed out that enterprises and other organizations – universities, for the most part – now have two choices when it comes to what their PCs report to Redmond. "Enterprise customers had two options in managing their Windows 10 diagnostic data: 1) allow Microsoft to be the controller of that data ... or 2) turn off diagnostic data flows altogether." The second option – now named "Diagnostic Data Off," but formerly marked with the vague "Security" – is only available to users of Windows 10 Enterprise and Windows 10 Education, the most expensive of the various SKUs (stock-keeping units). Other settings for telemetry collection – Microsoft prefers "diagnostic data" for some reason – have been culled from three to just two: "Required Diagnostic Data" and "Optional Diagnostic Data," the latter of which harvests more information and more kinds of information than the former. Since early 2019, the default has been Required Diagnostic Data, previously titled known as the "Basic" setting. Keep the data The new telemetry setting will let enterprises continue to collect data from their PCs but that data will not be passed on to Microsoft for analysis. "Under this approach, Microsoft will act as a data processor, processing Windows diagnostic data on behalf of the controller (emphasis in original)," wrote Rogers. "Processor" – as well as "controller" – are terms used by the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), the data protection and privacy law and ensuing regulations applicable in the European Union. (Microsoft defines the terms, and others related to GDPR, online.) It was unclear whether Microsoft, as the processor, would have access to the data or could use it in some fashion. One clue that it might not was in the preview sign-up form, which asked the customer to acknowledge that "for devices enrolled into this public preview program, you will not have access to features like Desktop Analytics and Update Compliance." Desktop Analytics, a collection of cloud-based services that offer information and guidance on the update readiness of end-point systems, has been one of the benefits Microsoft has claimed emanate from Windows' telemetric data collection. Rogers argued that the in-preview telemetry setting would let enterprises handle their own "compliance obligations," apparently another reference to GDPR, and its rules and regulations, which may, for example, require data to be exported and submitted for auditing. It's possible, of course, that Microsoft has created this option as much to get out from under the hassle and headache of acting as controller as to give enterprises more control of their own data.

  2. Windows 10 Telemetry: new control option for Enterprise customers launches Microsoft announced the public preview of a new Telemetry controlling option for Enterprise customers on July 23, 2020. Telemetry date, Microsoft prefers the term diagnostic data due to the negative connotation of the term Telemetry, has been a controversial aspect of the Windows 10 operating system since its launch. Microsoft decided to enforce the collection of Telemetry data on non-Enterprise systems and give Enterprise customers the choice to disable Telemetry. While there are ways to deal with the collection of data on Windows 10 systems, see our overview of privacy tools for Windows for example, it is likely that most Windows 10 systems transmit data to Microsoft on a regular basis. Diagnostic data is used to measure and improve the stability and reliability of the Windows 10 operating system according to Microsoft, for instance by noticing and reacting to issues as quickly as possible. The company introduced an option in 2018 to view the collected data on the device it was collected on. Microsoft notes that Enterprise customers had two options in regards to the collection of diagnostic data up until now: admins could disable the collecting entirely, or allow Microsoft to act as the controller of the data. The third option that Microsoft launched as a public preview this week makes the Enterprise customer the controller of the data. Microsoft states that customers stay in control of the data but will still benefit from the gathering and making available of data to Microsoft. Microsoft's role changes from the controller of the data to that of a data processor. Enterprise customers may "use familiar tools to manage, export, or delete data to help them meet their compliance obligations". The example that Microsoft gives in the announcement has customers respond to user requests using the Microsoft Azure portal to delete or export diagnostic data. Administrators can add or remove Windows devices using group policy or mobile device management, according to Microsoft. Enterprise customers find a link to a signup page in the announcement if they are interested in the preview. The service is available for Windows Enterprise customers and compatible with devices running Windows 10 version 1809 or newer. Home users won't benefit from the new option, and it seems unlikely that Microsoft will change its stance towards the collection of diagnostic data on home systems anytime soon.

  4. Microsoft: Enterprises have upgraded Windows 10 just once a year from the start The company's decision to extend support for the fall editions of Windows 10 Enterprise and Education reflects an upgrade cadence companies have already been following. Microsoft / Valery Brozhinsky / Fermate / Getty Images When Microsoft extended support for Windows 10 Enterprise and Education - making it much easier for organizations to upgrade the OS just once a year - it simply bowed to a reality that had been in place since the operating system's debut in 2015, according to a company document. In a corner of a September 2018 document titled "Joint FAQs" and labeled "For Partner Use Only," Microsoft acknowledged that many of its larger customers had been on an annual upgrade cadence since their beginnings with Windows 10. The FAQ was a companion to a Sept. 6, 2018 announcement of a change to Windows 10's support, the third that year. "All future feature updates of Windows 10 Enterprise and Education editions with a targeted release month of September (starting with 1809) will be supported for 30 months from their release date," wrote Jared Spataro, a Microsoft executive, in the post to a company blog. "This will give customers with longer deployment cycles the time they need to plan, test, and deploy." Before Spataro's missive, all Windows 10 SKUs (stock-keeping units) were allowed 18 months of free support. As Computerworld wrote in this FAQ here and here and here, the 30-month support extension for enterprises meant that annual-and-just-annual feature upgrades were eminently doable. By exclusively deploying each fall's upgrade, even the least agile organizations could slow down Microsoft's Windows-as-a-service tempo. Turns out that they were so desperate to get out from under Microsoft's mandated upgrade-every-six-months pace that they'd been doing yearly from the get-go. "With the six-month release cadence, not every customer could test every release," Microsoft said in the FAQ for partners. "In fact, we saw strong customer adoption of 1607, with many customers then adopting 1709 and skipping 1703 altogether." Here's how that cadence looks when turned into table format. IDG/Gregg Keizer [Note: The intervals are for comparisons only, as they measure from one release date to another. They do not reflect likely deployment timelines for organizations.] Customers who adopted 1607, whether by upgrading from the original 1507 release (shown in the table) or first deploying Windows 10 with 1607 (more likely), jumped over April 2017's 1703 and landed on 1709 sometime after the latter's October 2017 launch. From there it's a guess, as Microsoft published the FAQ four months after 1803 and three and a half months before 1809 was ready for even the most daring. One possibility is that enterprises on 1709 upgraded to 1809 even in the face of that version's disastrous debut and resulting re-release. More probable, Computerworld believes, organizations rightly steered clear of the 1809 debacle and knowing by then that each yy09 version came with 30 months of support, decided to wait until this year's 1909 showed. Because 1709 will be supported for Enterprise and Education until April 14, 2020, those customers will have approximately seven months from 1909's expected release to make the migration. That may seem like a tight timetable, but there are extenuating circumstances with 1909 that make it less of an ordeal than at first glance. "We decided to formalize this cadence - formalizing the way customers were already behaving," Microsoft stated in the FAQ. "The goal is to provide relief to those customers. "We fully appreciate that we have customers who may have 'normalized' to the 'March/April' releases and are skipping one," Microsoft added, referring to organizations that had also gone annual but had selected the yy03 upgrade to do that. Those enterprises will undoubtedly want to slip versions to yy09 for the 30-month support benefit, meaning that they'll have to do a second upgrade only six months after a first, or wait 18 months to move from spring to fall. "We know that they will figure out how to adjust," the FAQ continued. "We will be here to help that happen." But the message from Microsoft to its partners, and thus for passage from partners to customers, is harsher for customers not running the pricier Windows 10 Enterprise and Windows 10 Education SKUs. In response to the question "Why doesn't this change apply to Windows 10 Home and Pro users?" Microsoft said: "We are happy with the success that our consumer customers have had with twice-yearly updates; these individuals do not face the deployment management challenges that prompt our larger customers to need extra time. If a small business customer has an IT environment complex enough to warrant a longer servicing period, they should evaluate if Enterprise Edition is right for them." Ouch.

  5. Microsoft provides group policies for enterprise control of 'full-Chromium' Edge updates IT admins will be able to use the policies to manage, deploy and update the new browser to their corporate workforce. Thinkstock Microsoft has published the template and documentation that will be required to manage updates of the not-yet-finalized "full-Chromium" Edge browser, making good on a promise of earlier this summer. When Microsoft first pounded the Edge-for-enterprise drum in June, the Redmond, Wash. developer unveiled a preliminary catalog of group policies that IT administrators would use to deploy, customize and maintain the browser. Omitted, though, were GPOs (group policy objects) and an administrative template for wrangling updates. "Policies for managing updates aren't included; those will be in a separate administrative template file," Sean Lyndersay, a group program manager on the Edge team, wrote in a June 14 post to a Microsoft blog. Unlike previous Microsoft browsers - Internet Explorer (IE) and the original Edge, the latter powered by Microsoft's own technologies - the Edge built from the Google-dominated Chromium open-source project will be updated on a much faster six-to-eight-week cadence, just as is Chrome. Microsoft has severed the link between browser and OS feature updates. Enterprises that want to test and verify that each update works as expected need a way to block the native update mechanism. That's where these new GPOs come into play. The update-related group policies can be found in the full-Chromium Edge's online documentation. They require version 77 or later of Edge; the Dev 77 build was released last month, while Beta 77 launched this week. The administrative template - msedgeupdate.admx - to manage Edge updates can be downloaded from this landing page; it is one of the two templates collected in the MicrosoftEdgePolicyTemplates.zip file. (For those unfamiliar with using Windows' group policies, get-started instructions for the Edge templates can be found under the heading 1. Download and install the Microsoft Edge administrative template on this support page.) Because an organization's administrators will probably want to restrict employees' browser choices - to, for instance, keep everyone on the same version for support reasons - the GPOs allow for blocking updates of specific builds, like Canary, Dev and Beta - as well as preventing workers from manually refreshing the browser. Other GPOs let IT set specific systems with an update override, so that, say, a piloting team has access to Dev and Beta when everyone else does not. Still other GPOs set a value for the minimum number of minutes between automatic update checks - the default is 10 hours - and bar updates during office hours so as not to interrupt work. The GPOs control how Edge's native update service operates - the service that deals out upgrades to unmanaged machines - but Microsoft pledged that enterprise-grade platforms would also be supported by the browser. Deployment and configuration integrations with Microsoft's Intune and System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM), for example, are on the roadmap, though sans timelines. The browser will also be offered in MSI (for Windows) and PKG (macOS) installation formats for distribution by an organization's IT staff. The list of all Edge GPOs as of July 22 (other than those for updates) can be found here, and the browser's in-enterprise guidance begins here. Microsoft Microsoft has posted the administrative template for managing Edge's updates using group policies configured by IT. If this policy were enabled, the target Windows PC would be able to receive Beta channel updates.

  6. With cloud companies open-sourcing their innovations, and enterprises increasing participation, open source sustainability is at an all-time high There has perhaps never been so much angst over whether open source software development is sustainable, and yet there has never been clearer evidence that we’re in the golden age of open source. Or on the cusp. Here and there an open source company might struggle to make a buck, but as a community of communities, open source has never been healthier. There are a few good indicators for this. The clouds have parted The first is that the clouds—yes, all of them—are open sourcing essential building blocks that expose their operations. Google rightly gets credit for moving first on this with projects like Kubernetes and TensorFlow, but the others have followed suit. For example, Microsoft Azure released Azure Functions, which “extends the existing Azure application platform with capabilities to implement code triggered by events occurring in virtually any Azure or third-party service as well as on-premises systems.” Azure Functions is a significant open source release, so much so that CNCF executive director Dan Kohn initially assumed that the Azure Functions “SDK is open source, but I don’t think the underlying functions are.” In other words, Kohn assumed the on-ramp to Azure was open source, but not the code that could enable a developer to run serverless setup on bare metal. That assumption, however, was wrong, and Kohn corrected himself: “This is open source and can be run on any environment (including bare metal).” Boom. More recently, AWS released Firecracker, a lightweight, open source virtualization technology for running multi-tenant container workloads that emerged from AWS’ serverless products (Lambda and Fargate). In a textbook example of how open source is supposed to work, Firecracker was derived from the Google-spawned crosvm but then spawned its own upgrade in the form of Weave Ignite, which made Firecracker much easier to manage. These are just a few examples of the interesting open source projects emerging from the public clouds. (Across the ocean, Alibaba has been open sourcing its chip architecture, among other things.) More remains to be done, but these offer hope that the public clouds come not to bury open source, but rather to raise it. Enterprises are making waves Perhaps even more tellingly, mainstream enterprises are also getting religion on open source. Over a decade ago, Red Hat CEO Jim Whitehurst declared an open source emergency of sorts: The vast majority of software written today is written in enterprise and not for resale. And the vast majority of that is never actually used. The waste in IT software development is extraordinary.... Ultimately, for open source to provide value to all of our customers worldwide, we need to get our customers not only as users of open source products but truly engaged in open source and taking part in the development community. Since that declaration, things have gotten better. While it remains true that most enterprises aren’t deeply engaged in the open source development community, that’s changing. In 2017, just 32.7% of developers responding to Stack Overflow’s developer survey said they contribute to open source projects. By 2019, that number had jumped to 65%: The data is somewhat problematic, as the questions asked in the two years were different; in 2017 they didn’t ask how often developers contribute, as Lawrence Hecht has highlighted. Most developers who contribute to open source do so episodically, and less than once per month. Even so, it’s not hard to believe that the more companies get serious about becoming software companies, the more they’re going to encourage their developers to get involved in the open source communities upon which they depend. At the corporate level, such involvement might seem easier for new-school enterprises like Lyft, which are roiling old industries by open sourcing code and data to help foster their disruption. “But of course the new kids are doing that,” you say. Well, it’s not just the upstarts. Old-school enterprises like Home Depot host code on GitHub, while financial services companies like Capital One go even further, sponsoring open source events to help foster community around their proliferating projects. Or for an even more dramatic example of old-school embracing new lessons, consider that the Los Angeles Department of Transportation spawned the Open Mobility Foundation, with open source software designed to help manage the scooters, bikes, drones, rideshare, and autonomous vehicles zipping around cities. So, again, not everybody is doing it. Not yet. But far more organizations are involved in open source today than were back in 2008, when Whitehurst made his plea for greater enterprise involvement. Such involvement is happening both at the elite level (public clouds) and in more mainstream ways, ushering in a golden era of open source. Source:Matt Asay / InfoWorld
  7. The iOS and Android versions of the company's Edge browser now support single sign-on and conditional access, a move that could spur more use for the mobile version of Edge. Microsoft Microsoft on Monday announced that the iOS and Android versions of its Edge browser now support single sign-on (SSO) and conditional access - crucial security, management and convenience features to the enterprise. Integrating Edge on mobile into the broader enterprise ecosystem - leveraging the SSO of Azure Active Directory (Azure AD), for example - may be Microsoft's best shot at getting its most important customers to adopt the browser. Edge's user share on mobile has been microscopic. According to analytics vendor Net Applications, Edge accounted for just six-hundredths of one percentage point in March, or more than 1,000 times less than the leader, Google's Chrome. Support for SSO and conditional access was added in a public preview of Edge, Mayunk Jain, a senior product manager, said in an April 22 post to a company blog. Jain told users to install the latest version and provided a link to an acquisition page. Sign in, please Users of Edge can now launch Azure AD-connected web apps, third-party or in-house, without having to re-enter credentials. Once logged in to the device, all other Azure-AD connected apps - those are designated by the organization's IT staff - can be accessed sans additional authentication. Microsoft When Edge is set as the default browser in the Outlook app and conditional access is enabled, all Azure AD-connected web resources open in Edge and without additional authentication. Edge can replace the clumsy Intune Managed Browser - a bare bones browser previously awarded managed status by Microsoft - for SSO, and thus streamline web app access. (Intune Managed Browser was first integrated with Azure AD and SSO in mid-2017, months before Edge debuted on iOS or Android.) It's also a way to push Edge onto enterprise users, who Microsoft must hope will dispense with the default browsers on their mobile devices (Chrome for Android, Safari for iOS). Certain conditions More important to the organization than SSO, conditional access support has also been handed Edge, said Jain, who didn't mince words about the browser rivals. "You can now enforce policy-managed Microsoft Edge as the approved mobile browser to access Azure AD-connected web apps, restricting the use of unprotected browsers like Safari or Chrome," he wrote. "Conditional access" is the umbrella term for a set of IT-mandated policies that determine which devices, from where and under certain situations, can access an organization's web apps from mobile devices. Rather than rely solely on username-password authentication to grant access, conditional access can consider a wide range of circumstances that must be in place before allowing the user to tap into company data. Is the device fully patched? Is it connecting from a familiar geographic location or does its IP address put it suddenly in, say, Moscow? Like SSO, conditional access is a feature of Azure AD, but unlike the former, the latter is limited to the most expensive identity plans, or SKUs of pricy subscriptions like Microsoft 365. It's also a club Microsoft can wield to get more enterprise users running Edge. "Users attempting to use unmanaged browsers such as Safari and Chrome will be prompted to open Microsoft Edge instead," Jain pointed out when describing how conditional access works with Edge. Late last year, Microsoft said it would rejigger Edge, dropping its own rendering and JavaScript engines, replacing them with those from the open-source Chromium project, which feeds code to Chrome. Although Edge for Android uses Chromium's components, Apple's App Store requirements will force Edge on iOS to continue using Safari's rendering and JavaScript engines.

  8. The delayed delivery of Windows 10 October 2018 Update could put the pinch on companies looking to upgrade from Windows 7 before support for the aging OS ends next January. pan xiaozhen modified by IDG Comm. / Microsoft (CC0) Microsoft's months-long delay in getting the latest Windows 10 feature upgrade to customers could not have come at a worse time. The slow delivery of Windows 10 October 2018 Update, also known as 1809 in Microsoft's nicknaming yymm nomenclature, may pinch enterprises' migration from Windows 7, impact the expected shift to longer-supported versions of Windows 10 and temporarily stymie businesses from skipping multiple upgrades. Windows 10 1809 only began a phased roll-out to customers - almost entirely consumers at the start - a week ago, even though the upgrade was initially released Oct. 2, 2018. The roll-out should have started to show up on eligible PCs no later than the middle of October. But a bug that deleted users' files - a flaw reported prior to release by some participants of the Windows Insider beta program - forced Microsoft to withdraw the upgrade from all release channels, apply a fix to the flaw and then return 1809 to Insider for additional testing. Because of the three-month delay, customers running unmanaged PCs - all those powered by Windows 10 Home and many of the Windows 10 Pro devices - will probably run 1809 for just half as long as normal, three months rather than six, before they're required to upgrade to this year's 1903. But the delay could also disrupt migration and upgrade plans for enterprises, which not only are allowed to defer the twice-a-year refreshes but are allotted 30 months of support for each version, a full year longer than what is given to Home and Pro users. Hamper Windows 7 to Windows 10 migrations Due to a confluence of various deadlines, the three-month delay of 1809 may go down as an unforced error that punishes enterprises trying to oust Windows 7 from their networks. The most important of those deadlines is Jan. 14, 2020, when Microsoft ends free security support for Windows 7, making the OS a risk to run after that date. Businesses with Windows 7-powered systems, then, have until Jan. 14 - 356 days from today - to upgrade those PCs to Windows 10. The problem is that 1809 is not yet ready for enterprise deployment, so each day of delay is another day companies cannot migrate machines. There are older versions of Windows 10 that have been approved for business, but each has unwanted characteristics that make them poor alternatives. The problem with the older Windows 10 feature upgrades is that they will exit support either before Windows 7's retirement or within a few months after its expiration, forcing enterprises to upgrade again. (Contrary to Microsoft, which at least publicly believes many customers will continue to upgrade twice annually, Computerworld assumes that the goal of enterprise IT will be to do the fewest possible upgrades by running each Windows 10 refresh for the longest possible period.) Windows 10 Enterprise 1703's support will dry up in October, three months before Windows 7's retirement. Windows 10 Enterprise 1709 and Windows 10 Enterprise 1803 drop out of support April 14, 2020, and Nov. 10, 2020, respectively, or three and 10 months after Windows 7 support goes dark. That means, if a company decided to migrate from Windows 7 to Windows 10 now and took eight months to complete the upgrade - four for piloting the build, another four for deployment: Windows 10 1703 is out, because its support dries up before the end of this year, forcing the firm to upgrade from 1703 as soon as it wrapped up the job. (And the company could only do an upgrade to 1703 if it simultaneously worked two upgrades on separate testing/piloting/deploying tracks. While it deployed 1703 on one track, for instance, it would have to pilot its successor on another.) Windows 10 1709 is little better; its support runs out in 15 months, giving the company only seven months on this version after the upgrade. The two upgrades - from Windows 7 to Windows 10 1709, then from 1709 to a successor - would have to overlap to some degree. But as Figure 1 shows, as soon as the organization finished installing 1709 it would have to begin installing a follow-up, such as 1803 or as shown, 1809. Even then, 1709 would make it onto the business's machines just four months before Windows 7 hit its sold-by date (Windows 7's retirement is marked by the blue vertical bar). Figure 1 Gregg Keizer/IDG Windows 10 1803 is immediately available and tested, but its end-of-support date presents a problem. That date - Nov. 10, 2020 - is far enough in the future and the migration could be wrapped up before Windows 7's support lapses. But as Figure 2 illustrates, the natural successor, this year's 1903, would be a mistake because even for Windows 10 Enterprise customers, it will get only 18 months of support. That means holding out for 1909, which will receive 30 months of support. Trouble is, the company won't have much of an upgrade cushion from 1803 to 1909; the upgrade will have to begin as soon as the latter is declared enterprise-ready and even then, the cushion will be a short four months. Figure 2 Gregg Keizer/IDG Windows 10 1809 should have been the perfect upgrade from Windows 7. It's almost certain that Microsoft intended it to be, what with some of the steps it took before it was to launch (prime example: the 30-month extension of support for the feature upgrades designated xx09. But it didn't work out, as Figure 3 shows. Figure 3 Gregg Keizer/IDG If Microsoft had not had to yank 1809 and push back its roll-out by three months, enterprises would have spent October through January piloting and testing the build. Then, when Microsoft certified 1809 as corporate-ready - by the end of January at the latest (more likely in the first half of December) - enterprises could start deploying Windows 10 as Windows 7's replacement. Deployment would presumably finish in May, giving organizations a seven-month-and-more cushion before Windows 7 slid out of support. Instead, the file deletion bug pushed the schedule back by four months. Microsoft will probably use extreme caution and not certify 1809 as enterprise-ready until May. Deployment, then, would occupy the company's IT through October; assuming the migration encounters no showstoppers, it should be completed with three months to spare. That's cutting it close.

  9. Google's new cloud supervisor is accustomed to being the dark horse, and that is fitting for the job he's venturing into at one of the world's most ground-breaking enterprises. The Alphabet Inc. unit has been striving for a considerable length of time — pitifully, in any event as of not long ago — to use its specialized aptitude in web look into regions, for example, leasing PC power and information crunching handling to organizations expansive and little. Amazon spearheaded that region with its Amazon Web Services activity, which (no distortion) has overturned the direction of innovation and business. Google additionally offers an adaptation of its email, spreadsheet and record programming to organizations — a zone in which it plays second fiddle to Microsoft and its gathering of Office programming. Second fiddle is actually where Google has been in these and different zones extensively called distributed computing. That didn't generally change when regarded innovation official Diane Greene accepted accountability for Google's business-centered programming in 2015. Google said on Friday that Greene intends to leave and will be prevailing by Thomas Kurian, likewise an all around regarded long-lasting innovation official, most as of late with the database innovation firm Oracle Corp. He will formally assume control in 2019 after a progress period, Google said in affirmation of a CNBC article. The issue is that if Greene, who helped to establish the progressive tech organization VMware and sits on the Alphabet board, couldn't make Google a resonating cloud accomplishment against AWS and Microsoft, at that point maybe nobody can. Greene's side of the organization was centered around pitching programming to organizations, and it has been an odd fit inside an organization that commits almost 100 percent of its consideration regarding shopper innovation: web seeks, cell phone applications, mapping, advanced partners that can foresee individuals' needs, and web video. Greene made Google more pertinent in the cloud, and she gave the business control and validity. She made a few acquisitions to round out Google's cloud innovation yet passed up others, eminently GitHub, the famous programming advancement startup that Microsoft purchased not long ago. Basically, Greene couldn't settle the central dissension of a task concentrated on corporate programming inside a machine that can't be tried to think about what a production line administrator needs to enhance stock frameworks for steel direction. KeyBanc Capital Markets thinks a segment of Google's distributed computing activity will produce $3.2 billion in income one year from now contrasted and $15.1 billion for Microsoft. AWS produced more than $23 billion of income in the a year finished Sept. 30. The three organizations don't offer the very same innovation items to organizations, however Google's slacking deals are an indication of how a long ways behind it is. Microsoft's direction is a notice of what Google could have been. At the point when Satya Nadella assumed control as Microsoft's CEO in 2014, it showed up his organization was bungling the cloud. From that point forward, it has been on a tear. Kurian will have a difficult, but not impossible task ahead. He additionally as of late left Oracle under odd conditions. The organization said toward the beginning of September that he was taking some time off from his job as leader of item advancement. Kurian, who worked at Oracle for over 20 years, and author Larry Ellison were in charge of Oracle's ventures in distributed computing, a territory where the organization has had less footing than Google. (To be reasonable, Google and Oracle are not specifically focused in many regions of distributed computing.) Bloomberg News revealed that Kurian and Ellison had conflicted about whether Oracle should make a greater amount of its product good with distributed computing programming from AWS and Microsoft. Ellison contradicted such a move and Kurian bolstered it. Later in the month, Oracle revealed that Kurian had surrendered, and it didn't intricate. Kurian has many years of involvement in the exceptional hand-to-hand battle of corporate innovation — contacting corporate administrators, tuning in to their particular business needs and offering programming that will enhance their activities. Be that as it may, Greene knew corporate innovation, as well, and her notoriety and capacity could just take Google's cloud business up until this point. Greene's battles don't look good for Kurian's future. Source: Bloomberg

  11. How third-party services can knock out three out of four online properties Internet infrastructure may be fairly resilient thanks to its distributed nature, but the web we've built on top of it appears to be rather fragile. In a paper distributed last week through the ArXiv preprint server, researchers for Carnegie Mellon University find that third-party services such as domain name service (DNS) providers, content delivery networks (CDNs) and certificate authorities (CAs) represent an attractive target for attackers looking to maximize the impact of their hacking. Citing how the 2016 DDoS attack that downed managed DNS provider Dyn affected dependent sites like Amazon, Netflix and Twitter, the researchers – Aqsa Kashaf, Carolina Zarate, Hanruo Wang, Yuvraj Agarwal and Vyas Sekar – say the majority of top websites have a similar Achilles' Heel. "Our analysis paints a somewhat bleak situation on the state of modern web ecosystem," they observe, noting that most web services have little or no redundancy when using third-party infrastructure services and that a handful of these services represent potential single points of failure. The findings call into question the comprehensiveness of enterprise disaster planning scenarios. Most large business have some degree of system redundancy set up to deal with data center outages. But how many have implemented third-party service redundancy? Harvard University researchers raised this point, specifically in the context of DNS, earlier this year. The CMU boffins note that about 73 per cent of the top 100,000 websites – by Alexa stats – are vulnerable to diminished availability as a result of potential attacks on DNS, CDN and CA services. What's more, they observe that the amount of third-party services providing these critical functions is so limited that if the ten most popular providers of content delivery, domain name service and SSL certificate validation (OCSP servers) experienced an outage, between a quarter and almost a half of the top 100,000 websites would be affected. In addition, indirect or transient dependencies expand the possible points of failure: Critical third-party services can depend on other services and when one service is out it can have a downstream effect. For example, the researchers explain, the Dyn outage affected websites that relied on the Fastly CDN, because Fastly depended on Dyn. The researchers contend these indirect dependencies can increase the set of vulnerable web services by a factor of ten. Based on their findings, the researchers advise not only should organizations do the obvious thing and add some service redundancy but they should also analyze third-party service dependencies as avenues of vulnerability. ® < Here >

  21. Regardless that the fervor over the Heartbleed OpenSSL vulnerability has died down considerably, patching the bug should remain a top priority for enterprises because researchers continue to find new exploit vectors. The latest takes aim at Heartbleed over wireless networks. A researcher with Portugal-based consultancy Sysvalue has shared details of attacks he calls Cupid in which he has built patches that modify hostapd and wpa-supplicant, two programs that act as wireless access and authentication management points. Hostapd, for example, sets up a configurable access point; it’s supported on Linux. Hackers could create a wireless network configuration of their choosing that would allow vulnerable clients to connect to it. Wpa_supplicant, also supported on Linux and Android, is used to connect to wireless networks. “My Cupid patch is a series of modifications to those programs to trigger the vulnerability in order to check for vulnerable clients and servers,” researcher Luis Grangeia told Threatpost. Grangeia’s attacks exploit Heartbleed without establishing a full TLS handshake, sending an illicit heartbeat request right after Client Hello and before any crypto keys or certificates have been exchanged, he said. This behavior, meanwhile, is expressly forbidden in the TLS specification. Heartbleed is a vulnerability in certain OpenSSL implementations. Despite the availability of a patch and encouraging remediation numbers from several sources, attacks have been escalating against VPN infrastructure, critical industrial control systems and others, in addition to vulnerable web servers. Heartbleed is an exploit against a problem in OpenSSL’s heartbeat functionality, which if enabled, returns 64KB of memory in plaintext to any client or server requesting a connection. Already, there have been reports of attackers using Heartbleed to steal user names, session IDs, credentials and other data in plaintext if the attack is repeated enough times. More critically, researchers have also been able to piece together enough information to successfully reproduce a private SSL key. Grangeia said he has yet to analyze the memory dumps he was able to collect. “My point in releasing the [proof of concept] code is to get more people working on testing different configurations and analyzing the results,” he said. In Grangeia’s attack, the TLS connection is not made over TCP, but rather over EAP, a wireless network authentication framework. Some wired networks built on 802.1x and peer-to-peer connections also use EAP; EAP-PEAP, EAP-TLS and EAP-TTLS connect over TLS, he said. “To exploit vulnerable clients, hostapd (with the cupid patch) can be used to setup an ‘evil’ network such that, when the vulnerable client tries to connect and requests a TLS connection, hostapd will send malicious heartbeat requests, triggering the vulnerability,” Grangeia explained on his website. “To exploit vulnerable servers we can use wpa_supplicant with the cupid patch. We request a connection to a vulnerable network and then send a heartbeat request right after the TLS connection is made.” The attacks work on password-protected networks because the vulnerability is triggered before a user would have to authenticate, he said. Grangeia pointed out that the default installations of both wireless programs can be exploited on Ubuntu Linux running a vulnerable version of OpenSSL. He said that Android 4.1.0 and 4.1.1. also ship with a vulnerable version of OpenSSL and use wpa_supplicant to connect to wireless networks, and could be vulnerable as well. Grangeia said he was not able to test the vulnerable versions of Android. “This needs to be tested in practice, as Google (or other phone manufacturers) could have compiled OpenSSL with the heartbeat extensions turned off,” he said. In the meantime, enterprise network managers should be double checking their wireless deployments. “I actually believe the most serious attack vectors are vulnerable corporate wireless solutions and network access control solutions,” he said. “Vendors should double check their firmware and notify customers, because this vulnerability has the potential to give attackers an open door to their customer’s networks.” Source
