WHUK enhances focus on CMS Hosting Industry covering 31.4% of the worlds total websites

Leeds, UK (PRWEB UK) 10 June 2013

After the massive cyber attack targeting nearly 40 million vulnerable sites running WordPress CMS, all major web hosting and web security firms increased the security levels in order to protect websites and webservers across the globe.

The CMS Industry is huge with WordPress leading the list of most popular CMS platforms. WordPress is used by 18.1% of all the websites; that is a content management system market share of 57.7%, followed by Joomla and Drupal with 10.4% and 6.4% respectively.

To deliver secure and fast experience over a highly reliable web hosting platform, WHUK, a web hosting service provider in the UK since 2001, has enhanced security levels for its CMS hosting offering through server-level customization, backups and additional security filters, bundled with 24×7 free support.

A study by w3techs and BuiltWith shows the popularity of CMS platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Magento, Drupal, OsCommerce, vBulletin, phpBB etc. growing at a rapid pace. Based on these facts, it has also become imperative to have a secure hosting platform which ensures protection of websites built on these CMS from various attacks and vulnerabilities over the Internet.

We take pride in being one of the best customer support providers in the web hosting industry today. Along with being prompt and friendly, we also follow a strict SLA with near instant resolution delivery to customer issues. We have also tweaked the support team training programs with inclusion of CMS related issues over a server platform, stated a representative from WHUK Technical department. With the recent news about the attacks on websites based on CMS platform-WordPress, weve further increased security over our servers. With server platforms highly optimised for CMSs combined with enhanced server security settings, we ensure protection of websites hosted with us, he further added.

Latest GigaOM Research Reports Focus on Second Quarter Shake-ups, Future of Xbox One, and Intersection of Big Data and Human Risk

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 05, 2013

GigaOM Research has released its latest batch of quarterly wrap-ups, which summarize the biggest news, executive shake-ups, and mergers and acquisitions that occurred over the past three months in the cloud, cleantech, mobile, social and connected consumer markets. Other recent reports include an analysis of the Xbox One, and the future of big data analytics in the financial sector.

July 2013 Research includes:

Cloud and data second-quarter 2013: analysis and outlook (subscription required)

Analysts David Linthicum and Jo Maitand examine major news from the past three months in the cloud, infrastructure and big data sector. While the NSA leaks and the PRISM scandal dominated the quarters headlines and stirred up questions about cloud privacy and data privacy across international borders the quarter also included major acquisitions, such as the IBM-SoftLayer deal. Linthicum and Maitland highlight big executive changes, emerging trends and funding/IPO news for the cloud and data market, and they present a near-term outlook.

(See all the second quarter wrap-up reports here.)

The Xbox Ones role in the TV ecosystem (subscription required)

While the device met with mixed reviews, analyst Paul Sweeting argues that the Xbox One represents part of a greater strategy for Microsoft. Rather than releasing just another console, he believes the Xbox One is poised to capitalize on an inflection point in the video game industry, which has seen the rise of mobile and cloud-based gaming markets. Sweeting contends that Microsoft hopes to dominate the living room by providing a multipurpose entertainment device that serves up a range of non-gaming content, such as TV and video content and other media.

Proactive compliance: using big data analytics to manage human risks (subscription required)

Financial institutions are using increasingly affordable technologies like cloud computing and parallel processing to monitor and detect potentially suspicious activity. But analyst Steve Hunt contends that many of the systems in place are still insufficient for detecting more subtle cases of fraud and money laundering. Instead, he suggests that financial institutions take a proactive approach, using big data and predictive analytics tools to detect patterns in unstructured and semistructured data capitalizing on techniques commonly used by government intelligence agencies. Hunt analyzes the compliance challenges, current practices and common threats that are affecting the financial sector today and provides a list of recommendations for CIOs and CSOs.
