  12. Software Training Labs in the Modern Enterprise

    Not all that long ago, software training in the enterprise was largely based around the use of informational videos. While video-based training does have its place, it isn’t ideal. Videos sometimes contain knowledge gaps, and there isn’t a way for a student to ask the instructor questions in real time. Perhaps more importantly, the lack of interactivity makes it easy for a student to simply tu… Read More

  16. 067 – ‘Zero Trust’ in Multi-cloud Environments

    The concept of “zero trust” is becoming the standard security model in the industry, and that’s a great thing. But zero trust also comes with its own set of challenges; one of the biggest is scaling, especially when the environment extends beyond the on-premises boundaries of the traditional data center. Security vendor Aporeto has an answer to that challenge, and CMO Gregg Holzrichter di… Listen Now

The reality is that app availability in the… Listen Now
