Home office and mobile working on the move have long been part of our everyday lives and present IT departments with major challenges in terms of data security and convenient working for all employees. Kevin Dominik Korte, President of Univention North America, describes the different security requirements of both scenarios and why remote work should be a particular focus in an article published by the renowned US magazine Forbes.
UCS offers a wide range of opportunities for companies and organizations. Jack Wallen is also convinced of this:
It can be a domain controller, a chat server, an in-house cloud-based groupware solution, a kanban platform, your Nextcloud Hub installation, a mail server, and with a robust App Center, you can extend this server to be just about anything you need.
UCS 5.0-0 does ship apache-log4j2 as a Debian package, but this is not in use by default. We have already made updates for this package available to our customers on 12/13/2021, as they are not included in the regular errata tracking. For more information on the update, please visit the help forum at: https://help.univention.com/t/status-of-log4j-log4shell-vulnerability-cve-2021-44228-in-ucs-and-apps/19020.
The first point release of UCS 5.0 brings further important features and tops off the major release from May. The announced Light Theme is now available as an alternative for the user interface. There were improvements in the UCS Portal and App Center, and a number of other apps are now also available for UCS 5.0.
Univention Corporate Server logs all these events and more. If you don’t feel like reading detailed log files and just want a brief overview of the events in your UCS domain, you can read the Admin Diary. In this article, I’m going to explain how to install and how to set up our diary for sysadmins. We’re also going to look at the information it offers.
Collaborative work regardless of time and place has long been part of everyday life for many employees. Not least because of this, large cloud-based office applications such as Microsoft 365 or Google Docs are very popular. The major disadvantage of using these services, however, is the loss of control over the your own data.
