Logitech releases iPad 7th gen keyboard cases

Logitech has announced two new keyboard case options for the seventh generation iPad: one with military-grade drop protection, and another with a laptop-style keyboard.

Published

Logitech has introduced two new products for the iPad 7th generation: the Logitech Rugged Folio, a new slim keyboard for everyday on-the-go use with military-grade drop protection; and Logitech Slim Folio, the best-selling keyboard case offering laptop-like typing, for the new seventh-generation iPad.

Rugged Folio features spill and dirt resistant keys, and connects in one click via the Smart Connector of the iPad, eliminating Bluetooth pairing and external charging, in the middle of a demanding task or on the go.

Slim Folio offers multiple stand angles and goes from iPad to laptop in one click – locking the iPad in a typing position. It also features a row of iPadOS shortcut keys to make it more convenient to complete daily tasks.

“Logitech has expanded its portfolio to have the ideal keyboard case for new seventh-generation iPad based on what kind of iPad user you are,” said Michele Hermann, vice president of mobility at Logitech. “The Rugged Folio offers military-grade protection so it will easily withstand the wear and tear of daily life, whether you are using iPad on the go or with the family. The Slim Folio provides a flexible and simple solution for typing so you can work anywhere. Both cases continue our tradition of providing the best typing experience so you can work on iPad in any environment.”

Rugged Folio

Rugged Folio supports four ways to use it, including typing, viewing, sketching and reading. Adjust the kickstand in the back to adjust the viewing angle of the iPad and fold the keyboard behind so it is out of the way when not in use. Logitech proprietary shock-absorbent technology helps Rugged Folio exceed military standard drop tests for new levels of protection and to keep both iPad and keyboard protected in the most demanding environments.

Rugged Folio has a sturdy keyboard with high-performance fabric sealing the keys to keep out dust, crumbs, and spills.

Slim Folio

Slim Folio maintains a typing angle that’s held securely in place with the iPad with magnets, allowing for typing on the desk, your lap or anything in between.
Slim Folio is light, protects the iPad from scratches, bumps and spills and has a holder for the Logitech Crayon and Apple Pencil (1st generation). With the Smart power management system and low-energy Bluetooth connection, the replaceable coin cell batteries can last up to four years.

Pricing and Availability

Logitech Rugged Folio is expected to be available in October 2019 for $139.99 and Logitech Slim Folio is expected to be available in November 2019 for $99.99 at logitech.com and apple.com for the new seventh-generation iPad.

IBM unveils new cloud data privacy platform

Designed for hybrid multicloud security, IBM z15 enhances cloud-native app development and includes a new instant recovery feature.

Published

on

IBM has announced IBM z15, a new enterprise platform delivering the ability to manage the privacy of customer data across hybrid multicloud environments. With z15, clients can manage who gets access to data via policy-based controls, with an industry-first capability to revoke access to data across the hybrid cloud. 

The movement of data between partners and third parties is often the root cause of data breaches. In fact, 60 percent of businesses reported they suffered a data breach caused by a vendor or third party in 2018. With the growing adoption of hybrid multicloud environments, the challenge of maintaining data security and privacy only grows more acute and challenging.

The IBM z15 system culminates four years of development with over 3,000 IBM Z patents issued or in process and represents a collaboration with input from over 100 companies. Key z15 innovations from these investments across IBM Systems and Research include:

  • Encryption Everywhere – Building upon pervasive encryption, IBM unveiled new Data Privacy Passports technology that clients can use to gain control over how data is stored and shared – enabling the ability to protect and provision data and revoke access to that data at any time, not only within the z15 environment but across an enterprise’s hybrid multicloud environment. z15 also can encrypt data everywhere – across hybrid multicloud environments – to help enterprises secure their data wherever it travels.
  • Cloud-Native Development – Can give clients a competitive advantage by evolving how they modernize apps in place, build new cloud-native apps and securely integrate their most important workloads across clouds. Clients are already using IBM Z for their mission-critical workloads to build, deploy and manage next-gen apps and protect data through advanced security.
  • Instant Recovery – An industry-first approach to limiting the cost and impact of planned and unplanned downtime, enabling users to access full system capacity for a period of time to accelerate shutdown and restart of IBM Z services and provide a temporary capacity boost to rapidly recover from lost time.

Rising Importance of Data Privacy in Doing Business

A new IBM commissioned study conducted by The Harris Poll released today found that 64 percent of all consumers have opted not to work with a business out of concerns of whether they could keep their data secure. However, that same study found 76 percent of respondents would be more willing to share personal information if there was a way to fully take back and retrieve that data at any time. With z15, pervasive encryption is designed to extend across the enterprise enforcing data privacy by policy even when it leaves the IBM Z platform. With this industry-first capability, clients can offer new services and features that give their consumers stronger control over how their personal data is used.

The Next Phase of Digital Transformation – Moving Mission-Critical Work to the Cloud

Businesses today have reportedly already completed the first 20 percent of their cloud journey. z15 is uniquely positioned to help companies take this next step in their digital transformation efforts to move mission critical workloads (the other 80 percent) to the cloud by delivering a hyper-secure, agile and continuously available platform.

As the center of a secured hybrid cloud strategy, today, two-thirds of the Fortune 100 are using IBM Z. With z15, clients can:

  • Process up to 1 trillion web transactions a day, support massive databases, and scale-out to 2.4 million Linux containers in a single z15 system — up to 2.3 times more Linux containers per core on a z15 LPAR versus a compared bare-metal x86 platform, running an identical web server load. 
  • Address mission-critical latency challenges by delivering up to 30x lower latency and up to 28 times less CPU utilization on z15 by compressing secure web transaction data before encryption using the Integrated Accelerator for z Enterprise Data Compression instead of using software compression.
  • Leverage 12 percent more cores than z14, and 25 percent more memory than z14 to help meet the needs of today’s digital businesses.

Data-Centric Privacy Controls 

Data Privacy Passports is a consolidated data privacy solution that is engineered to extend clients’ ability to deliver privacy by not only protecting data on-premises at the infrastructure level, but allows clients to provision data rules to manage individual user access across private, public and hybrid cloud data at the data level.

Bringing Cloud-Native App Development to IBM Z 

Last month, IBM announced intent to deliver Red Hat OpenShift on IBM Z and LinuxONE. This offering will accelerate the transformation to greater portability and agility through integrated tooling and a feature-rich ecosystem for cloud-native development on Linux on IBM Z and LinuxONE offerings. Cloud developers can deploy z/OS applications on OpenShift with no special Z skills required.

Mission-Critical Work Done with No Time Lost 

For both planned and unplanned downtime, Instant Recovery brings clients the ability to unlock the full power of z15, spinning up built-in cores to return to pre-shutdown SLAs, while uniquely catching up on business transactions up to 2.5x faster than previously possible.
