OnPage Corporation is the Secure Messaging/Critical Alerts Leader: Learn More… 10 ways big data, analytics, and IoT sensors are helping behind the scenes Article Courtesy of: TechRepublic New solutions based on IoT, analytics and business intelligence are reaching into every corner of industry and commerce. Some of these examples might surprise you. We are surrounded by more “hidden” applications of big data, analytics, sensors, and business intelligence than we probably know—and in places where we might not imagine it. Here are 10 ways this behind-the-scenes tech is redefining how the world works. 1: Weather and political prediction systems for global supply chain and financial market impacts With the impact of global warming and climate change, companies want to know in advance when areas of the world are likely to be affected by typhoons, heat waves, fire, and other weather calamities, The goal for companies with long, global supply chains is to […] Read more »

OnPage Corporation is the Secure Messaging/Critical Alerts Leader: Learn More… IoT Security needs Scalable Solutions Article Courtesy of: TechCrunch The massive and unprecedented utility and opportunities provided by the Internet of Things (IoT) have been shadowed by grievous security and privacy tradeoffs, which have become a focal point of attention for the tech industry in the recent months. Discoveries like hacked baby monitors and remotely hijacked cars have given rise to new efforts and new initiatives, including the establishment of a foundation dedicated to defining standards and security practices for the IoT industry; a government-led solicitation project designed to encourage startups to address IoT security issues; and an educational book for children. While IoT can borrow many lessons and tactics from security protocols and technologies that have been tested in other domains, there are some glaring differences between IoT devices and traditional computing systems. The tech industry is taking strides to overcome the complexities these new […] Read more »

Security Attacks

OnPage Corporation is the Secure Messaging/Critical Alerts Leader: Learn More… Security attacks? New defenses in 2016 escape compromise. Article Courtesy of:  TechTarget Worried that attackers may know your infrastructure better than you do? Cyberthreats are learning fast from defenses that detect them. New strategies focus on what happens next.   Arden Peterkin has little faith that antivirus software can be effective against today’s cyberthreats. In the past, the security architect deployed antivirus software on 80,000 endpoints in a large Georgia school district’s network to prevent a security attack. While the software reported “all clear,” a quick look at the device logs for the network confirmed infected systems were still communicating with known command-and-control sites. “The actual management console was showing that everything was great, but when we looked at the logs, they showed that the network was totally infected,” says Peterkin, a security contractor with Reamer & Associates. Today, Peterkin […] Read more »

Data Security Analytics

Five factors for evaluating big data security analytics platforms Article Courtesy of:  TechTarget Expert Dan Sullivan outlines criteria for evaluating big data security analytics platforms for collecting, analyzing and managing large volumes of data generated for information security purposes. Increasing risks of cybercrime and other malicious activity on the Internet is prompting enterprises to deploy more security controls and collect more data than ever before. As a result, advances in big data analytics are now being applied to security monitoring for broader and more in-depth analysis to protect valuable company resources. Called big data security analytics, this technology — in part — leverages the scalability of big data and combines it with advanced analytics and security event and incident management systems (SIEM). As we noted in the last article in this series, big data security analytics is appropriate for many, but not all, use cases. Consider the challenges of detecting […] Read more »
