Even with under 50 percent penetration, the Email archiving market is starting to shake out. Two vendors are trying to build new identities for themselves, to establish new market niches and change from being the number 8 product in a 22 player field and be thought of as first, second or third in the market they define for themselves. Metalogix went the value route, reducing the price of their Professional Archive Manager for Exchange (PAM) to $15/user while releasing a new version. ZL Technologies decided to sue Gartner for continuing to put them in the niche category of their Magic Quadrant report.
Source code analysis is a fundamental part of a complete application security process. It finds flaws and vulnerabilities in application code that could be exploited by attackers. A critical component of source code analysis is tracking and remediating the flaws and vulnerabilities uncovered during analysis. Fortify's 360 Server is a repository for all the results and remediation activities that accompany an analysis of source code. While the 360 Server doesn't perform the source code analysis, it does accept uploads from other Fortify products in the 360 suite that do. Organizations can also take advantage of its service-oriented architecture to integrate with third-party code analysis software.
Mention cloud storage to most IT professionals and they think of Internet services like Amazon S3 and Nirvanix that store your data in their data centers. But a storage cloud doesn't have to be public. A wide range of private cloud storage products have been introduced by vendors, including name-brand companies such as EMC, with its Atmos line, and smaller players like ParaScale and Bycast. Other vendors are slapping the "cloud" label on existing product lines. Given the amorphous definitions surrounding all things cloud, that label may or may not be accurate. What's more important than semantics, however, is finding the right architecture to suit your storage needs.
There is considerable discussion about the oncoming impacts of cloud computing and how it will reshape (or eliminate) the enterprise data center. But until recently, there has been relatively little discussion about how cloud technologies will impact telecommunications, or specifically enterprise voice.

A personal area network (PAN) is a computer network used for communication among computer devices (including telephones and personal digital assistants) close to one's person. The devices may or may not belong to the person in question. The reach of a PAN is typically a few meters. PANs can be used for communication among the personal devices themselves (intrapersonal communication), or for connecting to a higher level network and the Internet (an uplink). Personal area networks may be wired with computer buses such as USB and FireWire. A wireless personal area network (WPAN) can also be made possible with network technologies such as IrDA, Bluetooth, UWB, Z-Wave and ZigBee.
