Welcome to the June 2014 Newsletter.

We start this issue with a new acronym for the collection - one that might well strike fear into the heart of the typical network manager! If you thought the bring your own device (BYOD) trend was a handful in itself then how prepared are you for the concept of BYON - bring your own network? How do you control, monitor and secure a corporate network when its boundaries are becoming as mobile as the typical user's phone?

The answer, according to Nick Bowman of F5, lies in embracing Mobile App Management (MAM) and Mobile Device Management (MDM), and in remembering that securing corporate data has to be the top priority. A similar "holistic" approach to security is envisioned by Malcolm Hamilton of Cryptzone in this issue, if we are to properly manage this growth in network complexity.

Elsewhere this month Andrew Roughan of Infinity SDC gives us a brief history of cloud computing - although it's not perhaps as brief as some of us might assume - and Victor Kuarsingh of Dyn gives a timely reminder that managing network capacity remains a crucial consideration, especially now that the network's boundaries are becoming so blurred. How do you accurately measure capacity when the network is becoming increasingly virtualised or heading wholesale to the cloud? Read Victor's article for some timely advice.
