  • This week's inaugural Dell EMC World in Austin, Texas, marked the first show since Dell's $60 billion-plus takeover of data storage giant EMC six weeks ago. In the 11 months between when the deal was first announced and when it closed, both vendors committed resources and people to map out what a post-merger company would look like, from how it would start merging product portfolios to who would be in charge of what. Some of those results were put on display during the show, such as combining Dell PowerEdge servers with the VxRail and VxRack hyperconverged infrastructure solutions from EMC's company VMware, or the bundling of endpoint security offerings from both. Executives from both companies mingled on keynote stages and in meetings with customers, partners, analysts and journalists. And the message was the same from all of them: the combination of these two tech giants creates the world's largest vendor of enterprise IT solutions with the broadest portfolio. eWEEK takes a look at some of the products and technologies the new Dell and its partners put on display at the show.

  • Over the course of the last decade, SecTor has emerged as a significant security conference. The 10th annual SecTor conference, held Oct. 18 and 19 in Toronto, tackled a broad range of security topics, including management practices, security fundamentals and the state of modern hacker tactics. The highlight of the event was the on-screen appearance of National Security Agency (NSA) whistleblower Edward Snowden, who remains hiding in an undisclosed location in Russia. Snowden provided the Canadian audience with his views on what is wrong with modern surveillance and why security backdoors tend to decrease security and privacy. Mikko Hypponen, chief research officer at security firm F-Secure, also had a somewhat dim view of the state of modern security, which he detailed during his SecTor keynote address. With the increasing use of technology in every facet of modern life and the growing realm of internet of things (IoT) devices, Hypponen now sees the role of IT security as no longer just protecting technology, but protecting modern society itself. In this slide show, eWEEK takes a look at some of the highlights from the 2016 SecTor security conference.
