A couple of weeks ago, Microsoft revamped their MSN page, which of course is my homepage. I need to admit I haven’t spent much time taking a look at it because not only am I pretty busy, but I usually get sucked into the headlines. Well, this morning I opened it up and was looking along the top when I noticed the Office tab. I clicked on it and it authenticated me right into Office Online.

Today, more than half of physicians handle patient data electronically, according to a McKinsey & Company report. Some might call that concerning while others might call it revolutionary.

A recent Osterman Research survey of mid-sized and large organizations found that 26% of the workforce in the organizations surveyed has a company-supplied smartphone, while 30% have a personally-owned smartphone. While there is some overlap here – i.e., some employees have both company-supplied and personally-owned devices– clearly more than one-half of employees have a smartphone with which they do their work.

The cloud is as secure as an on-premise installation. Maybe even more secure. In fact, Microsoft and other cloud vendors have pretty good security. Why? It behooves them to have good security. Servers are patched constantly, security updates are done on a regular basis, and they have strong firewalls and strict protocols for access.In an on-premise scenario, I can guarantee you that you will find a server or two that has not been patched and therefore provides a security issue.
