In Part 1 of this series, we explored how the increasing cost of data breaches coupled with the risk of increased mobility poses formidable challenges for IT-based organizations. In this article, we will examine how adding a solution that provides application-level strong cryptography for data both in-motion and at-rest can help to strengthen the security posture of today’s MDM/MAM solutions.
We’re excited to announce the release of Sencha GXT 3.1 beta, available on our download page and from Maven Central. This latest release of GXT introduces Theme Builder, a new tool for theming GXT applications, as well as the Neptune theme built entirely with this tool, adds support for GWT 2.6, and fixes a variety of bugs reported by our users. We’d like to gather feedback from our community while we prepare for the general availability of GXT 3.1.
At SenchaCon 2013, our CEO Michael Mullany announced the beginning of a strategic partnership with Microsoft that connects our developer communities, combining the power of Sencha Touch with the capabilities of Windows Azure cloud services. In this article, I’ll introduce you to the Sencha Touch Extensions for Windows Azure and give you some tips on getting started with using it in your Sencha Touch applications.
We will be at the Developer Week conference next week in San Francisco where we will be running a boot camp on Wednesday, February 19th from 9:00am–10:40am. At the boot camp you’ll use Sencha Architect to quickly build a Touch Asset Tracking application. You can still sign up for the bootcamp, so add Sencha to your agenda today.
The cost of data breaches has continued to climb in recent years. In its 2013 annual survey on the cost of data breaches, the Ponemon Institute reported that the cost of a data breach has once again increased year-over-year. For organizations whose data breaches resulted from malicious attack, the cost of the breach per compromised record was actually higher than if the breach had occurred due to a system failure or unintentional human factor.
In December and January, Sencha surveyed a sample of 2,128 business application developers from its HTML5 development community. We asked about the types of applications that developers are building, the technologies that they’re using, as well as the devices they’re supporting. Many of the responses were in line with trends that the industry is aware of — for example, it’s no surprise that iPads are popular target devices — but there were also surprising results.
We are pleased to announce the availability of Sencha Space! Space is a new platform for securely managing mobile apps from the experts on HTML5 and mobile web application development.
