Staying up-to-date with the latest news and technology trends is hard. You’re busy modernizing your company, transforming your digital environments, and creating and executing strategies for helping your business compete in today’s hyper-connected world. How can you accomplish all this and keep up with all the technology news? It would take hours to slog through every tech and business publication to find the news that's most relevant to you. We did it so you don’t have to.

Tech News InteNS1ve provides a rundown of this week's news about IT modernization, tech adoption, and industry trends.

Cloud Computing

The rise of the distributed cloud will change how we develop applications, among other things. In a recent article for SiliconANGLE, Mark Albertson predicts some of the major changes that will come with the increasing adoption of distributed cloud computing in his article, Big Shifts Are Coming In The New Era Of The Distributed Cloud.

And for a deeper dive into the tools that engineers use to build cloud-native applications, check out Catherine Paganini and Jason Morgan’s article for The New Stack, The Cloud Native Landscape: The Application Definition and Development Layer. It’s the latest article in an ongoing series from the Cloud Native Computing Foundation.

Legacy applications, however, continue to present challenges to the cloud migration process for many enterprises. Help Net Security outlines how IT teams are planning to address this challenge (largely drawn from a recent Next Path survey) in the article, The Complexity Of Moving Legacy Apps Remains A Huge Cloud Migration Challenge.

Security

Organizations focused on streamlining their networking infrastructure often neglect to dedicate the same attention to their security infrastructure and processes. In a recent article for Network Computing, John Maddison provides more detail on how companies weave security and networking functionality into a single system. Check out Networking And Security Are Converging. Are You Ready?, for more.

The recent surge in DDoS attacks are a prime example of why companies should continue to prioritize security investments. According to research from NETSCOUT, there were 1.6 million more DDoS attacks observed in 2020 compared to 2019. James Coker has more details in his article for Info Security, DDoS Attacks Surge in 2020 Due to #COVID19.

Check out a recent post from our CISO Ryan Davis for more information on the rising number of DDoS attacks, as well as how to mitigate the effects of one: Why DDoS Attacks Are Increasing, and How to Mitigate the Effects of One.
