    While still the most popular operating system in the enterprise, including at midsize businesses, Microsoft Windows 7’s reality in this new age of business computing is that it is slowly losing market share. Mobile operating systems, like Android and iOS, and even Mac OS are quickly making inroads, largely driven by BYOD policies implemented by IT departments in the last few years.

    Even with Windows 7 losing market share, Microsoft still rules the roost, however, as an overall analysis of current computer platform use at the enterprise revealed in late April at CITEWorld. Some businesses still use Windows XP. These companies still using XP need to take note that Microsoft is discontinuing support for the OS in April 2014.

    Windows 8 Still to Come for the Midsize Business

    In contrast to the leadership status held by Windows 7, Microsoft’s new OS, Windows 8, is making small inroads at the corporate level. Many midsize businesses appear hesitant to adopt 8, due to concerns about the usability of and training issues involved in rolling out the new tile-based operating system. Expect the next version of Windows to take steps to improve usability, including returning the Start button, and possibly offering an option to boot-up to the classic Desktop, instead of the newer Metro interface screen.

    The CITEWorld article analyzes statistics revealed in a Forrest Research report on the growing operating system diversity at the enterprise. One statistic that perfectly illustrates the migration to alternate operating systems shows that while 67 percent of all computing devices were powered by a version of Windows in 2008, today 70 percent use alternatives. Of course, the rapid growth of mobile devices at the workplace played a major role in the increased diversity.

    The Midsize Business Needs to Embrace Operating System Diversity

    Even with Windows 7 losing market share, it is still a very popular OS at the midsize business. If the next version of Windows improves some of the issues with Windows 8, Microsoft will continue to maintain a role in business computing. Still, functional alternatives to Redmond exist and need to be considered at enterprises of all sizes.

    A forward-thinking midsize business needs to allow for diversity in operating system choice, especially when considering mobile devices. As Cloud computing continues to grow in importance, hybrid tablet/notebook computers allow employees access to their work from home. A BYOD policy needs to consider this type of use, as it allows for improved efficiency as well as a potentially better work-life balance for employees. IT executives responsible for operating system choice at the midsize business need to realize that the days of one dominant operating system are over.

    The Gateway DX4870-UB2B ($499.99 list) is a basic tower desktop PC that checks all the boxes on what you need from a new desktop, particularly if you already have a LCD display that you’re carrying over. It’s speedy for its segment, has capacious storage, will let your family keep many documents open simultaneously, and it’s relatively inexpensive. Unlike the $300 bargain basement specials, the DX4870-UB2B$499.99 at Best Buy comes with a modern Intel Core i3 processor, dual-band Wi-Fi, and lots of drive space. It’s expandable, so it can grow with your family. It’s not ground breaking, but it’s a solid choice with a great bang for the buck, so it’s our latest Editors’ Choice for budget desktop PCs.

    Design and Features
    The DX4870-UB2B follows other Gateway desktops, looking almost identical to the last black tower Gateway DX4870-UB17$329.99 at Newegg.com ($500). Like that model, the DX4870-UB2B comes in a tower chassis with black panels all around, including the plastic front panel and metal side panels. The system’s tray-loading DVD burner is hidden, but two of the system’s USB 2.0 ports, SD card reader, and audio jacks are exposed on the top front of the chassis. In the back, the system has four more USB 2.0 ports, two USB 3.0 ports, PS/2 mouse and keyboard ports, HDMI, VGA, Ethernet, more audio jacks, and two connectors for the included WiFi antennas. It would have been nice if the front USB ports were USB 3.0 to accommodate USB hard drives instead of the slower USB 2.0.

    The inside of the system is certainly expandable, with plenty of space to move around for future upgrades. The system has space for two additional drives: one optical 5.25-inch bay and one 3.5-inch hard drive bay. Theoretically, you could shoehorn another three to four 2.5-inch notebook class drives in the same space, provided you have the correct brackets to hold the drives. The motherboard has four free SATA ports to service these drives. The system also has two DIMM slots free, along with a slot for a PCIe 3.0 x16 graphics card and two additional PCIe 2.0 x1 expansion cards. One PCIe x1 slot is occupied by the included 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi card, which will serve most users well. This is an improvement over other budget systems like the Lenovo IdeaCentre Q190$416.03 at antonline.com ($400) and Zotac Zbox ID83 Plus$448.99 at Amazon ($473), both of which don’t support 5Ghz WiFi, only the more common and crowded 2.4GHz channels.

    The last consideration you have to make for expandability is the system’s 300W power supply. While sufficient for additional drives and minor expansion cards, 300W will be insufficient for a high-powered discrete graphics card with Nvidia’s or AMD’s highest end GPUs. You can of course swap out the included power supply, but most budget system buyers never open their chassis, even if they are tempted by the system’s expandability. Bring a screwdriver if you dare, because you’ll need it for the case door and the drive bays. At least the internal card slots are tool-less.

    Like other Gateway systems, the DX4870-UB2B comes with quite a few pre-loaded applications and utilities. These include 7digital, Zinio, Kindle, eBay, Chacha, Netflix, NewsXpresso, Amazon, Tunein, Hulu Plus, Xbox Games, Cut The Rope, Stumbleupon, Skype, Merriam-Webster, Britannica, Spotify, Microsoft Office (ad), Norton Internet Security), and Wild Tangetn games. That’s a lot of pre-loaded apps, and most if

    Watchful Software, a leading provider of data-centric information security solutions, will feature live demonstrations of its award-winning cybersecurity technologies at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC) 2013 this week, July 8-11. The company will showcase how RightsWATCH and TypeWATCH prevent sensitive data from being disclosed inadvertently and unauthorized users from accessing your systems. Watchful Software is also announcing a global collaboration with SECUDE and Foxit Corporation to offer enterprises running on SAP a powerful end-to-end approach to protect business critical information regardless of its form or location.

    “Often, data is being pulled out of a SAP system, and is being transformed into emails, documents, spreadsheets, etc. This transformation process creates the opportunity for data breaches,” states Charles Foley, CEO of Watchful Software. “The alliance between Watchful, SECUDE and Foxit product offerings ensures that SAP-based information is protected against leaks, loss or theft, even if it is outside of the SAP database or published into different formats. This combination gives enterprises an unprecedented level of security of their business critical information both inside and outside the SAP landscape, as it moves around the world.”

    Those who stop by stand 1825 at WPC 2013 will be able to see how Watchful’s comprehensive product suite is capable of 1) educating users and training them to handle confidential information, 2) leveraging ERM and DLP technology to classify, encrypt and protect sensitive data from being leaked, and 3) leveraging state-of-the-art eBiometrics technology, to constantly ensure that the people using your systems are who you think they are.

    “Data breaches aren’t simply a question of good versus evil; oftentimes, these breaches are a result of an error by someone who really had no intention of disclosing sensitive information. Moreover, we should accept that just because there’s a security policy manual does not mean that its readers are going to act accordingly. Experience has proven that they won’t,” states Rui Melo Biscaia, Director of Product Management at Watchful Software. “RightsWATCH delivers a powerful tool for classifying data, controlling access to that data based on its user clearance and classification, and ensuring that the end result is what the organization expects and demands.”

    The WPC 2013 is a four-day global gathering of top Microsoft partners held in Houston, Texas, USA (08 – 11 July 2013).

    About Watchful Software – www.watchfulsoftware.com
    Watchful Software was formed in 2012 to address the requirement to protect an organization’s most critical asset after its people — its information. The company is staffed by industry executives with decades of systems, software, networking, security, and compliance experience to address the growing need for protecting sensitive and proprietary information against accidental or malicious theft, leakage, or loss. Leveraging key technologies including advanced encryption algorithms, digital rights management, and e-Biometrics, Watchful Software has developed a suite of solutions that ensure only authorized personnel have access to enterprise systems or can handle sensitive information, thereby protecting against the massive economic and competitive damage often done by cyber terrorists and information thieves.
