The Week Ending July 28

Topping this week's roundup of those having a rough week is Dell EMC, which continues to wrestle with problems with its online partner portal and its ability to provide partners with need training materials.

Also making the list this week are Apple, for a judge's ruling that it owes $506 million to the University of Wisconsin in a patent case; Cisco, for the security vulnerabilities discovered in its Autonomic Networking Software; Mac users, who are finding themselves more frequently under malware attack; and marketing cloud application vendor Marketo, whose services broke down this week because of the company's failure to renew its marketo.com domain registration.
