Eric Schmidt, Google’s executive chairman, put a question to an audience Gartner’s Symposium ITxpo here on Monday. “Raise [your] hand if you’re sure the Chinese are not inside your corporate network.”
Many of the 8,500 attendees were in the hall to hear the question, but only five hands were raised. “Congratulations,” Schmidt said from the stage.
Getting more serious, Schmidt lamented the open pathways in corporate networks, letting hackers slip in via NT servers.
Schmidt suggested a better network would eliminate the corporate intranet.
“We’re going to have just a network. We’re going to make sure that gaining access is application to application,” he said.
