VMWORLD 2016: Digital transformation is exciting for many businesses, but VMware has made sure that security plays an integral roleAccording to Rajiv Ramaswami, VMware s executive vice president and general manager of Networking & Security, the average cost of a data breach now stands at €4 million – a figure that could bankrupt many businesses.The rise in use of mobile devices, virtualisation and cloud environments has dramatically increased the number of potential attack vectors organisations have to be aware of and protect accordingly.CEO Pat Gelsinger added that by 2021 there will be 18 billion machine devices online, meaning IoT devices rather than smartphones or tablets.While he said that is an opportunity for VMware, it is also undoubtedly a threat to businesses.The recent leak of source code behind Mirai, which can control botnets made up of hijacked IoT devices, is proof of that.

This year s selection of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year may be another spark in the debate over whether it s pricey cameras or good photographers that make the most impact on an image — the winning image was actually shot with an action camera.Tuesday, the Natural History Museum announced the Wildlife Photographer of the Year winners, giving American photographer Tim Laman the competition s top title for the image, Entwined Lives, which displays an endangered Bornean orangutan climbing a tree with the rain forest below.Laman, a field biologist and photojournalist, used a GoPro to get the shot.The camera s POV style plays a big role in the image s strength, with the ape looking straight up into the camera as he climbs.The high perspective also helps the tree stand out from the rest of the rain forest, with the perspective making the branches almost appear to twist together as the tree disappears from view.The Bornean in the image is part of an endangered species in crisis from habitat loss due to logging and farming.
