Today's topics include a report on Russia's involvement in a White House email hack, new additions to Brocade's campus LAN portfolio, a project for developers interested in Azure IoT services and recent updates to Citrix GoToMeeting.

Russia was in fact behind an Oct. 2014 security breach in the White House email system, according to a new report from CNN. The attack allegedly breached an unclassified network in the White House and there is no indication about what data may have been compromised.

Casey Ellis, CEO and co-founder of Bugcrowd, said he isn't surprised that Russia may be involved in the White House hack given the tense relationship between the United States and Russia as well as the concentration of cyber-security talent in that part of the world.

Campus networks are finding themselves under the same pressure as those in the data center as the amount of video-based and mobile traffic rapidly grows, according to Brocade officials.

On April 7 the company rolled out the latest additions to its campus LAN portfolio, including a new stackable switch and extended support for the OpenFlow 1.3 protocol for software-defined networking implementations.

Azure IoT, an outgrowth of Microsoft's Azure Intelligent Systems Service for organizations looking for a cloud-based foundation for their Internet of things projects, is slated for a preview release later this year.

Developers, however, can get a head start now with the company's newly updated ConnectTheDots.io project. This open-source project is designed to help developers who want to start experiencing Azure IoT services now to do near real data analytics and apply machine learning experiments, according to Olivier Bloch, a technical evangelist at Microsoft Open Technologies.

Citrix launched an updated version of GoToMeeting, adding new productivity app integrations and personalization features that work the same across multiple devices.

Citrix announced the enhancements April 7, saying they will make it easier for users to hold a high-definition GoToMeeting and collaborate in real-time.

Some enhancements include a customizable control panel, a new Android mobile app and the ability to easily move from a meeting on an iPad/iPhone to a Mac desktop.
