Companies aren't keeping their cloud data secure

  Companies aren't keeping their cloud data secure New research from Thales has shed light on the difficulties of securing sensitive data in the cloud.To compile its 2019 Thales Global Cloud Security Study, the firm surveyed more than 3,000 IT and IT security practitioners from Australia, Brazil, France, Germany, India, Japan, the UK and the US. Of those surveyed, only one in three (31%) organizations believe that protecting data in the cloud is their own responsibility.

LAS VEGAS (Reuters) - Amazon.com Inc on Tuesday said it was extending its cloud to 5G networks in partnership with Verizon Communications Inc, so developers can run latency-sensitive programs on mobile and connected devices.

Unlike those four, the new network will run off the same 5G technology the company uses for its mobile network (something called 5G NR), where the original cities use a network (known as 5G TF) that's incompatible with the one it's deploying around the country for mobile devices.

It also said that its previously announced on-premises infrastructure service, Outposts, was ready for orders, in new competition with companies that help others run their own data centers, like Hewlett Packard Enterprise Co.
