The short answer is ‘yes’. As businesses produce and use more data, security will be an ever-expanding concern. Security at heart is all about control. The biggest difference between cloud and on-premise computing is that on-premise computing allows you to maintain control over the hardware and everything that runs on it. As the cost of […]

Data encryption and access controls make it very difficult for hackers to access private data without first stealing the appropriate user credentials or decryption keys. Brute force attempts to hack into accounts by guessing passwords can be thwarted by locking an account after a certain number of consecutive failed passwords attempts. Since modern security technology […]

Naples, FL – December 2014 Multi-factor authentication, the requirement of users to identify themselves both through something they know (such as a username or email account credentials) and something they have (like a cell phone or key fob), is a security measure which has become increasingly adopted across multiple verticals.

Security software can keep data safe. Strong encryption and sophisticated access controls can keep data out of the wrong hands, but for the information in the systems to be useful, employees have to be able to access and manipulate it. The legitimate access granted to employees also makes them prime targets for social engineering attacks […]

Usernames and passwords are what most computer applications use to identify users and secure data. But passwords–especially ones complicated enough to be secure–can be difficult to remember. Without an efficient self-serve password reset program in place, employees who forget their passwords or get locked out of their accounts have to call the Help Desk and […]

PGP (pretty good privacy) is a program that lets users encrypt data for secure and private communications. A user can encrypt a message with PGP and transmit it knowing that only a user with the matching decryption key will be able to decrypt and read the message. PGP was created in 1991 by Phil Zimmermann. […]

Self-serve password reset programs help make organizations more productive and keep data secure. In organizations without a self-serve password reset solution, Help Desk staff spend a lot of time resetting passwords. In addition to the time spent resetting passwords, there are many security vulnerabilities inherent to managing password resets through phone calls to the Help […]

Mainframes are able to work with and process data using many different operating systems, applications, and protocols. They are also able to save that data onto many different kinds of storage media. What follows is a brief overview of some of the most common types of mainframe storage media. Tape Storage One of the earliest […]

With the number of high-profile data breaches in the news this year, following the breaches of 2013, it would be easy to conclude that these sorts of incidents are an inevitable part of dealing with data. The news stories of data breaches are certainly coming out frequently enough for one to think that public data […]
