In the software-defined security (SDSec) security model

Image
For those who are unfamiliar, the software-defined security (SDSec) offers support to organizations in creating a secure and agile environment with network control and full visibility. In the software-defined security (SDSec) security model, security software is used to manage and monitor the information security. This is a policy-driven architecture where the software is responsible for managing the network access and security controls in the computing environment.

The vital need for a comprehensive and efficient end-to-end security structure

Image
It is indispensable to recall that, the vital need for a comprehensive and efficient end-to-end security structure gave rise to software-defined security (SDSec) model. Governments as well as commercial businesses want a system that can secure their enterprise computing environment from any malware, spyware, threat, intrusion, or viruses. They need a security framework that safeguards content and information; offers services for threat management, identity management, and access management; and manages the overall security.

Taking the best of both Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR)

Image
One can observe that, taking the best of both Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR)will open up the enterprise market further, and will enable entirely new use cases and applications not yet conceived. For those who are unfamiliar, Virtual reality (VR) involves the creation of a virtual world that interacts with consumers, while Augmented Reality (AR) is the complete immersion within the physical world. Mixed reality on the horizon incorporates elements of augmented reality to Virtual reality (VR, as evident in Intel’s Alloy reference design, to name a few.

Exciting dynamics fueling the three primary virtual reality (VR) device types, and mixed reality on the horizon

Image
I can observe that, the three primary Virtual Reality (VR) device types: mobile, standalone, and tethered are entering the market with unique value propositions, target audiences, and use case support. However, there is the less understood market of mixed reality on the horizon.
In fact, Mixed Reality (MR) incorporates elements of augmented reality to VR devices, as evident in Intel’s Alloy reference design. Associated machine vision technology like RealSense or Google’s Tango opens a compelling AR/VR hybrid opportunity on the mobile platform.

The momentum behind an influx of standalone virtual reality (VR) devices

Image
It is steadily obvious that, with an influx of standalone VR devices incoming, a greater range of use cases will be explored, broadening the gaming-focused VR market of today. ABI Research anticipates a total market size of $64 billion by 2021. Non-gaming software and content, VR advertising, and VR-related video revenue could together hold a significant portion of the market. VR applications in retail and marketing could therefore see a 124% CAGR through 2021. Video, education, and tourism are expected to see significant growth.

Mobile device-reliant Virtual Reality (VR) Vs Virtual Reality Standalone Devices

Image
Market realities converge on the fact that, Low cost and high accessibility has, and will continue to, drive Virtual Reality (VR) adoption with mobile devices and associated Virtual Reality (VR) accessories. However, it is obvious that, a trend toward standalone devices is surfacing.
ABI Research forecasts total Virtual Reality (VR) device shipments will reach 110 million by 2021.The firm also reveals that, while mobile device-reliant VR shipments, such as Samsung Gear VR and Google Daydream dwarf today’s other VR device types, standalone devices will see a 405% CAGR through 2021, compared to a 42% CAGR for mobile VR. New device players, including Royole and Pico, already entered the global market, with many other Chinese manufacturers poised to expand.

Developers; Docker Datacenter is playing an important role in a containerized environment

Image
For those who are unfamiliar, Docker Datacenter offers a ‘comprehensive’ security platform that provides container-native secrets management in combination with Docker’s other security capabilities such as image signing and verification, image scanning, automatic TLS encryption and more.
IT and security operations teams can define explicit policies aligned with their compliance rules, can provide individual teams with granular access to specific secrets and enable these teams to apply secrets to certain applications. According to Docker, it is only with this comprehensive yet easy-to-use framework that organizations can be assured of safer applications across the entire software supply chain.

The First Container Native Secrets Management Solution at Docker, for developers and system administrators

Image
Distributed applications are at the center of our ever-connected digital era, where streamlined security is a game changer. In effect, it is critical to ensuring the security of production-grade applications across the entire software supply chain. Based on this reality, Docker Secrets is poised to be another example of bolstering containers with the security, encryption and other capabilities that enterprise organizations expect and demand.
In fact, as containers continue to move beyond test and development and pilot projects to production implementation in the enterprise, the ability to provide strong isolation, safer defaults and safer container applications is critical. Now, developers and system administrators can leverage the latest release of Docker Datacenter that includes container-native secrets management, an element for ensuring the security of production-grade applications across the entire software supply chain.
