Not all businesses are convinced that the email security tools employed by cloud hosted email services are sufficiently secure. Although over recent years the technology has advanced considerably, still around 70 percent of organizations feel that their email is more secure if it is retained and managed on premise compared to the cloud. In fact nearly half of the organizations who have not migrated their email to the cloud state that the main reason for not doing so is a concern over email security.
Drilling a little further down into these concerns, it is often stated that companies are unsure about where the data might be stored, for instance it might be stored in a foreign country and other parties may have jurisdiction over it.
These concerns are not without some justification. Not all clouds are as secure as others. To quote Nathaniel Borenstein, one of the major creators of the MIME protocol and currently the chief scientist of Mimecast, “All clouds are not created equally”. There remains a lack of cloud security standards, and until they are truly in place and proven, security concerns will remain.
Although there are security concerns, most organizations do see an advantage of cloud email tools. It is generally accepted that there are substantial cost savings to be enjoyed as well as greater functionality and features.
The current situation is that a little over a quarter of organizations aim to move some part of their email infrastructure to the cloud within the next twelve months, though over 80 percent of organizations accept, and some of them a little reluctantly, that email will have headed cloud-ways by early 2015.
Perhaps a little surprisingly, it is the smaller organizations with fewer than 5,000 employees that are happier to embrace cloud email services than the larger ones, possibly due to concerns over the enormity of the task. Also a little surprisingly, organizations that are regulated by compliance laws are more reluctant to move to the cloud than non-regulated organizations. Complexity considerations are exacerbated by fears that migrating to the cloud could result in a total systems failure should things go wrong, and that risk is considered to be unacceptable.
The tide can only be held back for so long. The fact that cloud based solutions are cheaper in terms of the cost of data storage, that email is often the first thing that organizations move to the cloud, and that cloud email security standards are improving and becoming more ubiquitous means that the migration of email to the cloud is inevitable.

The hotly-anticipated EE 4G service finally went live just over two weeks ago, bringing the UK up to speed (literally) with the rest of the world. With this radical new mobile technology promising home broadband speeds on a mobile phone, mobile broadband is all the rage. But what are the specific advantages?
You can use it on the move
Internet access is no longer a luxury, but an essential part of our lifestyle, used for even the simplest of things – keeping in touch with friends and family, for example. With this in mind, it is little wonder that mobile broadband is becoming increasingly popular. A particularly useful service for commuters, travellers and students, mobile broadband is great for those looking to access the internet outside of their home or office. Whether you are on the bus, in the park or at a coffee shop, you can get connected.
Because the technology provides you with your very own portable modem, you do not have to be plugged into an Ethernet connection or even be within range of a hotspot. Incredibly convenient, mobile modems are so small and discreet that you can keep them in your pocket so you are ready to connect virtually anywhere. The modem plugs directly into laptop USB ports and does not require a source of electricity, making for easy and effortless internet access.
There are a number of differences between fixed-line broadband and mobile broadband. One of these is that there are far more pay-as-you-go options available from mobile providers, that all compete with each other to provide you with the best prices – resulting in some pretty good deals.

It seems that the successor of the first Ice Cream Sandwich Samsung Galaxy Nexus – also the first smartphone runs Jelly Bean operating system – will join the android smartphone battle this year. The handset which possibly named Galaxy Nexus II is said on the way and even its specification and codename have been leaked – GT-I9260 Superior.
If we take a look at its codename – compared to current Galaxy Nexus GT-I9250 – the new Galaxy Nexus probably only comes with a minor improvement and it is confirmed by the leaked specs.
The leaked specs of Galaxy Nexus II Superior are said at least will feature -unfortunately still - dual-core A9 processor but cloaked at 1.5Ghz, improved both 8-megapixel rear camera and 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera. Unlike the current Galaxy Nexus, the new Galaxy Nexus II will have a microSD slot. It will obviously run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean Operating system from the day one. The rest specs remain same.
Samsung is not the only one to have Nexus device, LG and Sony are also said to release their Nexus smartphone this year named LG Optimus Nexus and Sony Xperia Nexus. No words on exact release date and price at this moment. Stay tuned for more Nexus update.
