"Watch this on-demand webcast, as security expert Randy Franklin Smith from Ultimate Windows Security, shows you a technical and pragmatic approach to mobile security for iOS and Android. For instance, for iOS-based devices, he talks about:
Encryption and data protection
Randy also discusses Android-based devices. While Android gets its kernel from Linux, it builds on Linux security in a very specialized way to isolate applications from each other. And learn about iOS and Android mobile device management needs: Password and remote wipe capabilities are obvious but there’s much more to the story. And you’ll hear Randy's list of top-10 things you need to secure and manage on mobile devices in order to protect access to your organization’s network and information. "

Capturing the detailed actions of privileged users is even more critical in today’s business environment. Security and compliance issues also exist with third-parties including Cloud Providers, Service Providers and ISVs. And every major compliance regulation requires organizations to document what users actually do with the privileges and rights granted to them and how their actions impact the IT environment.
This research paper covers how to solve the security, compliance, and third party access challenges organizations face when auditing and monitoring UNIX, Linux and Windows systems; and why traditional approaches like log rollup tools alone will fail to meet requirements of today’s demanding IT environment.

IBM’s new PowerLinux servers appeal to Linux buyers? Linux buyers are driven by the price advantages that Linux offers as compared with other operating environments (Linux is free open source code) Windows and Unix are chargeable licensed code). Linux buyers, therefore, look first and foremost at the total cost of acquisition of Linux based servers. Linux buyers also want rapid time to value (fast deployment); they often use decentralized procurement processes; they want their Linux servers to be simple to use and manage."
