A Chromebook opens a backdoor to Google’s services, authentication out the window

As everyone should do, I enabled two-factor authentication for my Gmail account. I think the extra step while logging in is worth the hassle.

When you think about optimizing your Digital Workspace, you’re probably thinking about several things. One of the most time-consuming parts of managing and maintaining a Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop environment, whether it’s a Provisioning Services or Machine Creation Services, on-premises, hybrid and/or full cloud deployment – is the application maintenance of the golden image. At Citrix Synergy last year, Ron Oglesby showed a nice example how all the processes […]

There is also no need to have SED’s (Self-Encrypting Drives), this implementation is software based and is included at no added cost to the customer. The amount of savings this brings to customers is huge, since SED’s are exorbitant upon procurement and on top of that you can’t mix differing disk types in most systems […]
