Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is the policy of permitting employees to bring personally owned mobile devices (laptops, tablets, and smart phones) to their place of work and use those devices to access privileged company information and applications. The term is also used to describe the same practice applied to students using personally owned devices in education settings.


Just about everyone holds an opinion when it comes to the ‘Cloud’ and what it means. Most of us use public Cloud in some form today even if we don’t realise it – think Gmail. Put simply, Cloud Computing offers consumers and business the ability to house all or part of their computing and storage / backup needs at a third party location (a data centre). The Cloud Provider (data centre owner) might be a global giant like Amazon located anywhere in the World, or a Melbourne Boutique operation.


It is difficult for many businesses to keep up with technology.  To make it simpler for you, NineWire has identified leading four trends we believe will change your business and enhance your capabilities in 2013.


In preparation for the Christmas break, we have drawn up a Christmas break-up checklist to help businesses be safe and protected until the New Year.


Ninewire is now fully migrated to IPv6, the next generation of internet protocol.  Internet Protocol Version 6 is an improved address system for internet devices, which allows for enhanced network and security capabilities. As one of less than 60 organisations in Australia fully migrated to IPv6 at present, NineWire can provide advice and support to business looking to do the same.  With IPv4 space running out, migration will be necessary for many companies, particularly those building new networks.

According to Dimuthu Parussalla, CIO of NineWire, IPv6 has many advantages for those currently using IPv4, including flexibility and faster connectivity. “It is essential that your network effectively supports your business objectives,” says Dimuthu.  “IPv6 may be critical for businesses experiencing strong growth and/or planning to adopt new systems or applications.”

So what does IPv6 mean for your business?

  • Faster Network Communications using less overhead
  • Eliminates internet bottlenecks inherent with IPv4
  • Easier access to mail and web servers by eliminating port forwards
  • Simplified management of IPSEC tunnels due to inbuilt security.
