IronPort

Look what I found

While digging some pictures for my website i found a few old certifications of mine, the old MCP one, the MCT MCSE that state since 1996, even the Cisco Ironport Certification (I used to be a trainer) and the old ASE and ACT compaq certification. Geez I feel so old. in the same dig i were trying to find pictures of my previous job activities but I’m afraid I were not able to find anything. But at least I found a few old business card, I have never been a huge fan of Business Cards so it was quite a…

Looking for a new career opportunity

Dear All, As you may know I’m looking for a new career opportunity. Many of you knows me because we have been working together in Europe or USA in one of my previous work experiences, including Cisco, Ironport, Symantec, BrightMail, Mondadori Informatica and so on, or met in conferences and events. With over 16 years of experience in the leadership of IT product development, project management, marketing, and representation and as a reputable and renowned contributor to the tech industry particularly within the security community, I think I have often provided outstanding results and proved my soft and technical skills, but the situation now force…

Diary of an acquisition part1

Ok I know many of us experienced this kind of trip once in a lifetime. I have travelled acquisition a lot of times, when mondadori informatica was absorbed  by the mother comany mondadori, when brightmail become part of symantec, when symantec acquired veritas software and moved all european management to veritas, and at the end when cisco systems acquired Ironport. All acquisitions means change and most of the changes are not well accepted, but I’m a long traveller on the seas of IT company and I’m quite used to changes so what has meant to me an acquisition? The last…

Is Big C missing the point on security?

Big company are really suited for security? This is what comes to my mind when we see what Cisco, HP and Co. do when we talk about security. Are they really able to focus on the innovation and development that security require? I  can talk about what I know so i will express my mixed feeling about Cisco and Security. For long times Cisco has not been perceived as a big player in the security space, beside the fact PIXASA is the most sold firewall in the world. But honestly we should not only consider the magnitude of the numbers but also why and how companies buy a product. Alas…

Things always gonna change :)

There are times when things changes even if you were not planning it. This is what happened to me lately, things does not go alwaysas planned   but just happened. I were not planning to have a tumor in my right arm this year (see related post if interested) and I were not planning big changes but… I’m no more in Cisco, and i have to honestly say that it brigs me a lot of mixed feeling. I have met great people there, starting form my adventure in Ironport with the crazy gang: First Domenico and Patrice, then Angelo and…

Surviving Tips:Performance e DNS

Tra le cose piu spesso trascurate per quello che riguarda security e prestazioni, vi e’ sempre la struttura DNS. I DNS sono un elemento fondamentale per garantire prestazioni sia per quello che concerne il trasferimento delle mail sia per quello che concerne la navigazione Web. Anche utilizzando un SMTP Gateway o un Proxy non si puo’ prescidere dalle performance di un buon servizio di DNS. Paradossalmente poi in caso di uso di proxy un pessimo DNS puo’ dare origine ad una serie disparata di errori che, nei fatti, renderebbero la navigazione piu problematica e la use experience piu dura rispetto…
