Cisco buys Rohati Systems

Rohati’s Transaction Networking System helps establish entitlements by controlling access through its Layer 7 access method

Cisco has just acquired start-up Rohati Systems, according to Rohati’s president and CEO Prashant Gandhi, who says the acquisition price is not disclosed.

The acquisition of the start-up represents a full circle in that Rohati was started by former Cisco engineers in 2008 to introduce an access-control device that’s an alternative to the traditional firewall.

Rohati’s Transaction Networking System helps establish entitlements by controlling through its Layer 7 access method who has what access to data on a per-transaction basis using context-specific attributes. Rohati has also been working on a version of its technology for use in cloud-based environments.

Rohati is based in Sunnyvale, Calif. Rohati’s president and CEO Prashant Gandhi says he intends to remain with Cisco with the completed acquisition, and that more details about the future of Rohati’s technology at Cisco will be forthcoming soon.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
