The shared responsibility model is spelled out in the terms of services document of every CSP from Microsoft to Amazon. However, it is arguably the least understood and most misconceived concept. Simply put, the shared responsibility model outlines the CSP’s responsibility to maintain a secure and continuously available service and enterprises’ responsibility to ensure secure use of the service. Why is such a concept so difficult to comprehend and open to varying interpretations? Is the difference between security of the service and secure use of the service so significant? Aren’t enterprises moving to the cloud so they don’t have to deal with these types of responsibilities?
This white paper examines the root cause behind the confusion, some unfortunate scenarios that resulted from the confusion, and how some enterprises are successfully addressing and embracing the shared responsibility model.

Microsoft has announced that it will end active support and “end of life” Windows XP on April 8, 2014. Now, as that date fast approaches, the highly negative consequences of continuing to use Windows XP in enterprise environments are becoming much clearer. After that date, IT security risks and compliance issues from continued use will be magnified. This white paper examines three aspects that can potentially create a “nightmare” for your organization.
In the wake of major security, management, and interface limitations, Microsoft has decided to end support for Windows XP. This decision has important implications for corporate management as it presents a number of risk, security, operations, and compliance issues. This white paper looks at the top five issues that business management must be aware of and provides non-technical business justifications for driving a migration program forward.
VMware Horizon® support for published applications provides exciting new opportunities for customers running Citrix XenApp. Tightly integrated with Microsoft Remote Desktop Services (RDS), VMware Horizon is a new option for delivering not just published applications and shared desktops, but also virtual desktops, software as a service (SaaS), and virtualized applications to the devices your end users want to use.
This white paper provides guidance for planning and undertaking a migration from Citrix XenApp to VMware Horizon. Four approaches to XenApp migration are detailed, including the major steps required for their implementation. Whether the goal is to migrate an existing XenApp infrastructure to Horizon, replace it with a new system, or simply integrate legacy Citrix infrastructure with your Horizon virtual desktop deployment, VMware has the innovative products and technology you need.

This white paper provides guidance for adding support for hosted applications and desktop sessions to your VMware Horizon infrastructure. Whether the goal is to integrate an existing RDS environment for combined management with VMware Horizon virtual desktops or deploy hosted applications and desktop sessions for the first time, VMware Horizon provides the technology required and a simple path forward.
The use of instant messaging in the energy industry is widespread, with one source estimating that as much as 60% of trading in the physical power markets is conducted using the technology.

While real-time communications, such as instant messaging, are very useful for traders and others in the energy industry, a failure to monitor and retain them along with other electronic communications can result in substantial penalties and other serious consequences.

The concept of all centralizing all communication methodologies (presence, instant messaging, voice, video, and messaging services) within a single system, a.k.a. unified communications or UC, is not new. One of the most popular platforms is Microsoft. In fact, Microsoft has indicated that it has 110 million Skype for Business or Lync users around the world.
However, many organizations have yet to fully embrace the video conferencing capabilities available within Skype for Business / Lync. Overall we view Skype for Business (SfB) video conferencing as an excellent choice for sessions involving only SfB users. However, the SfB experience is focused more on content sharing and less on live video.
