Council of Europe Chooses SyncShield to Secure Mobile Devices

OULU, Finland, January 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Capricode, are pleased to announce, that SyncShield has been chosen by The Council of Europe in Strasbourg to secure their mobile devices. The decision confirms Capricode's position as a technology leader in the area of Mobile Device Management (MDM) and Mobile Application Management (MAM). Seeing off competition from many of the leading players in the MDM world by winning the open tender, Capricode's pricing, flexibility, innovative Linux architecture and strong European focus were all seen as critical factors for the council. The Council of Europe had an urgent requirement to take control of their fleet of mobile devices due to a high number of BYOD's (Bring Your Own Device). 

As market leaders in Scandinavia, SyncShield is already used in many Government and public sectors. Both public organisations and enterprises of different sizes face the same challenge with mobility and SyncShield has proven its potential as a beneficial management solution for every type of organisation. The Council of Europe contract is seen as critical to Capricode's plans to expand into new markets in a very challenging business environment.

Using serverless computing has a number of obvious benefits over traditional application infrastructure - you pay only for what you use, scale up or down immediately to match supply with demand, and avoid operating any server infrastructure at all. However, implementing maintainable and scalable applications using serverless computing services like AWS Lambda poses a number of challenges. The absence of long-lived, user-managed servers means that states cannot be maintained by the service. Longer function invocation times (referred to as cold starts) become very important to track, because they impact the response time of the service and will impose additional cost. Additionally, the transition to smaller individual components (much like breaking a monolithic application into microservices) results in a simpler deployment model, but makes the system as a whole increasingly complex.

With the rise of Docker, Kubernetes, and other container technologies, the growth of microservices has skyrocketed among dev teams looking to innovate on a faster release cycle. This has enabled teams to finally realize their DevOps goals to ship and iterate quickly in a continuous delivery model. Why containers are growing in popularity is no surprise — they’re extremely easy to spin up or down, but come with an unforeseen issue. However, without the right foresight, DevOps and IT teams may lose a lot of visibility into these containers resulting in operational blind spots and even more haystacks to find the presumptive performance issue needle.
Docker and Kubernetes are key elements of modern cloud native deployment automations. After building your microservices, common practice is to create docker images and create YAML files to automate the deployment with Docker and Kubernetes. Writing these YAMLs, Dockerfile descriptors are really painful and error prone.Ballerina is a new cloud-native programing language which understands the architecture around it - the compiler is environment aware of microservices directly deployable into infrastructures like Docker and Kubernetes.
Signs of a shift in the usage of public clouds are everywhere. Previously, as organizations outgrew old IT methods, the natural answer was to try the public cloud approach; however, the public platform alone is not a complete solution. Complaints include unpredictable/escalating costs and mounting security concerns in the public cloud. Ultimately, public cloud adoption can ultimately mean a shift of IT pains instead of a resolution. That's why the move to hybrid, custom, and multi-cloud will become more and more prevalent. At the heart of this technology trend exists a custom solution to meet the needs and concerns of enterprise organizations, including compliance, security, and cost issues. The "new normal" of enterprise clients is a world of hybrid and multi-cloud solutions, and it is slowly changing the IT technology landscape. Better tools, better management, and easier adoption a...
