The threat of malware infecting your IBM is a real danger. Use these tips to lower your risk of being affected.
By Carol Woodbury
Several things can be done to reduce your exposure to malware - be it some sort of virus or ransomware or the latest type of malware, cryptomining software. I often talk about the need to implement multiple layers of defense, or "defense in depth." This area of security demands the same sort of planning. Determine what technology should catch the first layer of threats and then determine what would happen if that layer is breached. What's stopping the malware from wreaking havoc with your system?
Mobile computing is rapidly maturing into a solid platform for delivering enterprise applications.

This ASNA whitepaper takes a look at mobile computing for the IBM i. It discusses the different ways mobile applications may be used within the enterprise and how ASNA products solve the challenges mobile presents. It also presents the case that you already have the mobile programming team your projects need: that team is your existing RPG development team!
