Security stopgap for Windows XP users
The Edge7200i security appliance from Milton Security Group is designed as a stopgap for companies and customers who have not upgraded from Microsoft Windows XP.
Milton Security Group's Edge7200i security appliance is a special solution for those customers and companies that have not migrated away from Microsoft Windows XP.
The Edge7200i provides identity-based access to the network. The Edge can report on what systems are still running XP as well as control the types of traffic coming to and from those XP machines. This gives the Edge the ability to stop possible threats from ever even touching that XP machine. The Edge7200i is designed to be a stopgap for companies that are looking to upgrade from XP and are looking for a temporary solution since Microsoft has officially ended support for the OS and will not be providing upgrades or security patches going forward.

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
