For Sale – Apple Macbook Pro (MBP) Retina 13″ Late-2013 8GB / 256GB. Cheap, £375

Moving this on as I now have a company laptop which I use for everything.

I’m the second owner, and have owned for three years.

Got purchase receipt (DABS) showing date of 25/4/2014

Full spec is here – model a1502 – 8gb ram, 256gb SSD, 2.4ghz i5, retina screen

MacBook Pro “Core i5″ 2.4 13″ Late 2013 Specs (Retina Late 2013 13”, ME864LL/A*, MacBookPro11,1, A1502, 2678): EveryMac.com

It’s boxed including the additional PSU extension lead that the newer ones don’t ship with.

I’ve also got an additional (3rd party) mag-safe PSU that I will include.

Running OSX Sierra, and wiped for new owner

The bad:

  • Dink in bottom, see pics
  • Touchpad does not click down properly across all of the surface (it works better on the left for example), therefore you have to use “tap to click”, which is my preference so it’s never bothered me
  • Missing one of the screws underneath, I lost this when trying to fix the touchpad a couple of years ago

Avaya earnings show cloud, recurring revenue growth

Avaya hit revenue targets, increased cloud sales and added customers in its second full quarter as a public company — welcome news for customers and partners anxious for proof that the company is regaining its financial footing following last year’s bankruptcy.

Avaya reported revenue of $755 million in the third quarter of 2018 — down from $757 million last quarter, but within the vendor’s previously announced targets. When excluding sales from the networking division, which Avaya sold last year, adjusted revenue was 1% higher than during the third quarter of 2017.

To keep pace with competitors like Microsoft and Cisco, Avaya is looking to reduce its dependence on large, one-time hardware purchases by selling more monthly cloud subscriptions. This transition can make it difficult to show positive quarter-over-quarter and year-over-year growth in the short term.

Recurring revenue accounted for 59% of Avaya’s adjusted earnings in the third quarter — up from 58% the previous quarter. Cloud revenue represented just 11% of the quarter’s total, but monthly recurring revenue from cloud sales increased by 43% in the midmarket and 107% in the enterprise market, compared with last quarter.

Avaya reported an $88 million net loss in the third quarter. Still, the company’s operations netted $83 million in cash, which is a more critical financial indicator, in this case, than net income, said Hamed Khorsand, analyst at BWS Financial Inc., based in Woodland Hills, Calif.

“This is a company that’s still in transition as far as their accounting goes, with the bankruptcy proceedings,” Khorsand said. “[The net cash flow] actually tells you that the company is adding cash to its balance sheet.”

Also during the third quarter, Avaya regained top ratings in Gartner’s yearly rankings of unified communications (UC) and contact center infrastructure vendors. Avaya’s one-year absence from the leadership quadrant in the Gartner report probably slowed growth, Khorsand said, because C-suite executives place value in those standings.

Avaya’s stock closed up 3.61%, at $20.68 per share, following the Avaya earnings report on Thursday.

Avaya earnings report highlights product growth

The Avaya earnings report showed the company added 1,700 customers worldwide during the third quarter. It also launched and refreshed several products, including an updated workforce optimization suite for contact centers and a new version of Avaya IP Office, its UC offering for small and midsize businesses.

The product releases demonstrate that Avaya continued to invest in research and development, even as it spent most of 2017 engaged in Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings, said Zeus Kerravala, principal analyst at ZK Research in Westminster, Mass.

“As long as we continue to see this steady stream of new products coming out, I think it should give customers confidence,” Kerravala said. “Channel partners tend to live on new products, as well.”

The bankruptcy allowed Avaya to cut its debt in half to a level it can afford based on current revenue. But years of underinvestment in product continue to haunt the vendor, as it tries to play catch-up with rivals Cisco and Microsoft, which analysts generally agreed have pulled ahead of all other vendors in the UC market.

Avaya acquired cloud contact center vendor Spoken Communications earlier this year, gaining a multi-tenant public cloud offering. Avaya plans to use the same technology to power a UC-as-a-service product in the future.

“We are investing significantly in people and technology, investing more on technology in the last two quarters than we did in all of fiscal 2017,” said Jim Chirico, CEO at Avaya.

Avaya is expecting to bring in adjusted revenue between $760 and $780 million in the fourth quarter, which would bring the fiscal year’s total to a little more than $3 billion.

Vision + Execution: Microsoft named a leader again in Gartner MQ for Access Management

Howdy folks,

Some great news to share with you today! For the second year in a row, Gartner has positioned Microsoft in the Leaders Quadrant in the 2018 Magic Quadrant for Access Management, Worldwide, based on our completeness of vision and ability to execute in the access management market. Find out why in a complimentary copy of the report here.


According to Gartner, Leaders show evidence of strong execution for anticipated requirements related to technology, methodology, or means of delivery. Leaders also show evidence of how access management plays a role in a collection of related or adjacent product offerings.

Furthest in Vision in Leaders Quadrant

Microsoft is positioned the furthest in completeness of Vision in the Leaders Quadrant, for the second straight year. We believe our jump up in Execution also illustrates how important it is for us to execute on a strategy that can help organizations where they are at today and prepare them for the identity needs of tomorrow.

At Microsoft, we champion conditional access policies and threat protection for identities as critical capabilities for a world-class identity and access management solution. As part of a rich ecosystem with Windows 10, Office 365 and EMS, we’ve worked hard to integrate security policies across products to give you visibility and control over the full user experience. We’ve also taken in the insights and feedback from our customers this year to improve the experience and make it even easier to get all your identities in one place. We are committed to providing innovative and comprehensive identity and access management solutions for your employees, partners, and customers.

We could not have continued to be a leader in this space without the input and support from our customers and partners – thank you!

Best Regards,

Alex Simons (Twitter: @Alex_A_Simons)

Director of Program Management

Microsoft Identity Division

Apple transparency report shows national security requests rising

The Apple transparency report for the second half of 2017 showed national security requests on the rise, and the number of devices included in requests is up sharply.

The latest semiannual Apple Report on Government and Private Party Requests for Customer Information detailed requests by governments around the world from July 1, 2017, through Dec. 31, 2017. According to Apple, although overall device requests are down, governments around the world have been using fewer requests to attempt to get information on far more accounts.

The Apple transparency report showed a slight year-over-year decrease in the total number of device requests received worldwide (30,184 in the second half of 2016 versus 29,718 in H2 2017), but the number of devices impacted by those requests more than doubled from 151,105 to 309,362.

Apple is not alone in receiving more government data requests; Google has reported similar increases, but Apple noted it has complied with a higher percentage of government data requests in the second half of 2017 (79%) compared to the same time period in 2016 (72%).

Apple’s transparency report shows the company has been complying with more of the government requests across multiple request types. Apple’s compliance with financial information requests was up year over year from 76% to 85%; account-based request compliance was up from 79% to 82%; and only compliance with emergency requests went down from 86% to 82%.

National security requests also rose sharply, according to the Apple transparency report. In the second half of 2016, Apple received between 5,750 and 5,999 national security requests and complied with the majority of them (between 4,750 and 4,999). In the same time period in 2017, Apple received more than 16,000 national security requests, but only provided data to the U.S. government in about half of those cases.

Richard Goldberg, principal and litigator at the law firm Goldberg & Clements in Washington, D.C., said he was struck by the large percentage of U.S. government requests made by either national security request or subpoena.

“Although Apple has challenged certain government requests aggressively in public, we don’t know how aggressive the company has been in private — which is especially relevant because these requests typically do not require a judge’s approval,” Goldberg said via email. “So the government collects this information, and it may never see the inside of a courtroom.”

Additional information

Goldberg added that the general level of detail in Apple’s transparency report is helpful, but suggested Apple “should break out administrative subpoenas from all other types.”

“Administrative subpoenas can have broad scope, because they often need only be related to something the agency is permitted to investigate, and they need not be connected to a grand jury proceeding or active litigation,” Goldberg said. “It’s a one-sided way for the government to demand information with little to no oversight, unless the recipient chooses to fight. And we don’t know how Apple makes that decision.”

According to Apple, the predominant reason for financial information requests around the world was credit card and iTunes gift card fraud and in multiple regions — including the U.S. — a “high number of devices specified in requests [was] predominantly due to device repair fraud investigations, fraudulent purchase investigations and stolen device investigations.”

It is unclear what data in the Apple transparency report correlates to the allegedly large number of devices the FBI and other law enforcement cannot access due to encryption, nor is it clear which data in the report correlates to iCloud backup data, which Apple has previously admitted to handing over to law enforcement.

SearchSecurity contacted Apple for clarification on these issues and Apple referred to its Legal Process Guidelines, which detailed the types of data in iCloud backups that Apple would be able to provide to law enforcement, including the subscriber’s name, address, email, telephone, mail logs, email content, iMessage data, SMS, photos and contacts.

However, Apple did note in the report that it would be adding “government requests to take down Apps from the App Store in instances related to alleged violations of legal and/or policy provisions,” starting with the transparency report for the second half of 2018.
