EINSTEIN by Polkast - New, High-Security Private Cloud for Business - Available Today for Public Preview!

Connects mobile devices directly to Windows Servers, Saving Big Money on Cloud Storage Fees

LAGUNA BEACH, Calif., Jan. 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Polkast announced today that Einstein, the first major B2B release of the private cloud company, is available as a free trial on the Polkast website (polkast.com).

Polkast has ended months of anticipation for Einstein, the high-security private cloud that connects Windows Servers directly to mobile devices. With more than 50 targeted business features, Polkast Einstein enables content and mobile device management for an affordable price. Key features include remote file access, permissioned sharing, on-premise file storage, remote wipe capabilities, centralized IT control, and a live-feed of file usage. Polkast Einstein is offered as a 30-Day Free Trial, with a one-time purchase price starting at only $499 after the trial. Server download is available on the Polkast website (polkast.com) and mobile download is available via Apple, Google Play, and Amazon (pending) App Stores.

Einstein is a welcome addition to the IT ecosystem. It's easy-share technology removes the pain of Sharepoint, while eliminating the security risk of public clouds like Dropbox, Box, and Google Drive.

And Einstein's introductory offer is only one-tenth (1/10th) the cost of Box!

"Don't change what you're doingthat's the best part about Polkast. You still have all your stuff, you still own it, and then Polkast comes in and extends the reach of your content so you have more options. It gives you the freedom to store, access, and share everything, without disrupting current operations or messing with your security framework. The convenient manner in which you can enable your users while maintaining the integrity of your architecture is very appealing!" – Timothy Joyce, CTO, iNETWORKS Group

Security. Businesses use Einstein as an answer to NSA PRISM. It allows them to gain control and regulate policy over confidential data. Unlike public clouds like Dropbox, Box, and Google Drive, files remain on-premises and approved devices and applications, never on the internet.

Simplicity. Einstein takes two minutes to setup on the server, and users can be fully functional with the click of a button. No syncing devices. No uploading files. And it's much easier to use than Sharepoint.

Savings. There are two big opportunities for savings. Einstein allows companies to take advantage of existing hardware by turning Windows legacy systems into a robust private cloud. Businesses can also reduce reliance on public cloud solutions like Box and Dropbox, resulting in significant savings.

Total Product Cost over Four Years (40 employees, 1 server)
This little genius could save you over $25,000, in the next four years!

It's really going to save people a TON of money!"  Hong Bui, CEO and Founder, Polkast

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry. If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management.

Service providers will w...

The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...
WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless.

It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015.

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices.

But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using ...
