Cloud Security – New Report Available “Securing Cloud Services”

cloud securityEly, England, 5 September 2012 – A new book from IT Governance Publishing, the specialist publishing arm of IT Governance, is helping companies protect business information in the Cloud.

Securing Cloud Services: A pragmatic approach to security architecture in the Cloud explains how to establish an appropriate set of controls to manage the risks.

The book’s author, Lee Newcombe, is an experienced enterprise architect currently working at Capgemini, one of the world’s foremost providers of consulting, technology and outsourcing services.

Newcombe says: ‘There are many benefits to Cloud Computing, which include reducing, or even removing, the need to invest in the hardware, software and staff needed to support equivalent on-premise services. However, the flexibility the Cloud brings in IT service deployment, alongside an opaqueness in the delivery of those services, introduces security risks that need to be understood and addressed.’

Alan Calder, Chief Executive of IT Governance, adds: ‘Plenty of material simply states the risks of adopting the Cloud model. Securing Cloud Services, however, not only identifies the risks, but also reveals how to use architectural techniques to derive appropriate ways of managing those risks.’

Securing Cloud Services is aimed at all business decision makers who work with Cloud services, from senior IT stakeholders to enterprise architects and information security professionals.

Securing Cloud Services can be ordered online now, in multiple formats, for £29.95 (usually £39.95) at (UK) or for $39.95 at (US).

Ipad Audio Editing Software Released- WavePad Audio Editor New iPad HD Version

Pocket WavePad HD Audio Editing Software has been released for the Apple iPad.

This new release is an upgrade from the iPhone version of WavePad from October 2010, and takes full advantage of the iPad’s larger screen for precise audio selection and editing for iPad users.

“I can’t wait for the iPad version of WavePad to arrive,” WavePad user and audio aficionado Andrew Wardell told Gadgets and Technology News.

“The very tactile method of manipulating audio in this app, combined with the amount and quality of features NCH has packed in has made iOS a serious competitor in the mobile audio editing space.”

The iPad Pocket WavePad HD Audio Editor will provide a remarkably easy way to record and edit audio, voice and other sound recordings while on the go. Recordings can be exported from Pocket WavePad for you to share, use, or even broadcast later.

WavePad is a hugely popular audio editing program with over two million downloads of the desktop version, and over 15,000 downloads of the Pocket WavePad iPhone App in just the past three months.

Features include:

  • Easy audio recording
  • Trim, cut and edit recordings
  • Normalize audio levels
  • Apply audio effects including amplify, echo, reverse and more
  • Reduce background noise
  • Email or upload recorded or edited audio
  • Import and export files with iTunes file sharing

Users of Pocket WavePad and Pocket WavePad HD should also try NCH Software’s other audio software such as Switch MP3 Converter, and MixPad Multitrack Recording and Mixing Software, as well their other iPhone apps including Pocket Dictate Dictation Software, TempoPerfect Metronome Software and PitchPerfect Guitar Tuner.
