Fortanix Secures Data with Runtime Encryption Technology

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Sept. 27, 2017 — Fortanix™ Inc., the Runtime Encryption™ company, today announced that its Self-Defending Key Management Service (SDKMS), the world?EU?s only cloud service secured with Runtime Encryption technology, protects organizations from software vulnerabilities that can allow hacker attacks similar to the recent Equifax data breach.

Today encryption secures data at rest as well as in transit with technology such as Transport Layer Security (TLS). As an example, when banks provide data to Equifax they use TLS, but once the data is used by Equifax, it?EU?s decrypted and exposed. The exposed data provides an opportunity for hackers to try all possible vulnerabilities to find and steal the exposed data. In the case of Equifax, a vulnerability in the Apache Struts software provided the path for hackers to connect to the personal data, a breach which affected 143 million people.

Fortanix?EU?s Runtime Encryption protects applications and data during use and computation. Runtime Encryption allows general-purpose computation on encrypted data without exposing sensitive data to untrusted operating systems, root users, cloud providers, or malicious insiders. Even with vulnerable software such as Apache Struts, hackers access only encrypted data which is undecipherable. Hackers will always be able to use vulnerable applications to connect to servers. But encryption during runtime ensures that even when this happens, private data remains encrypted and unusable to hackers.

?EU?Runtime Encryption keeps data encrypted and secured when applications are using the data,?EU? said Ambuj Kumar, Fortanix CEO and co-founder. ?EU?As we saw in the Equifax case, encryption would have protected the population?EU?s sensitive data during runtime processing. An approach that combines encryption with best practices in developing secure applications can reach new heights in securing data.?EU?

Secured with Intel® SGX, Fortanix?EU?s SDKMS is the world?EU?s first and only key management solution that is secure from cloud providers and government subpoena;…

Twitter full of big, fat tweets…. thoughts?

Twitter full of big, fat tweets.... thoughts?

So we all live in a socail media age, and one of the main protagonists of this age is Twitter. Since its inception many years ago, Twitter users have been restricted to getting their musings across in 140 characters. This was both a blessing and a curse. It meant that you had to be concise about your thoughts but, on the flip side, it also gave us ample opportunity to get things disastrously wrong.

Twitter full of big, fat tweets.... thoughts?

In some instances it would be nice to be able to get a bit more detail into a tweet without having to break that train of thought. Now the bods at Twitter have listened, and a select few testers now have 280 characters to tweet with. This has been met with some mixed views from those online. Some people seem to love it some seem to hate it.

Twitter full of big, fat tweets.... thoughts?

A major request, and one which never seems to happen, is for an Edit button to be available. This would save those embarrassing moments where you make a typo. We have all been there!

We would love to hear your thoughts about this so please hit us up on Twitter or comments to let us know were you stand.

    AmpliFi – The unboxing

    Well, I don’t normally get excited about wireless extension system, but there was something cool and futuristic about AmpliFi that certainly caught our interest at Coolsmartphone Towers. We covered the unit’s release not so long ago, and now we have one to review.

    The box was huge and very impressive (I really like nice boxes – not at all weird!). Once I worked out how to get into the box (it was late, do not judge me!), there before me was the main unit, two extender wands and the power supply.

    Setting it up

    The first job; find the new unit a home. I currently have a very old, out-of-date Netgear router managing my front room’s internet due to my house design, therefore it was an idol swap for the AmpliFi hub.

    The hub sprung into life once I connected it to the outside world (ethernet) and all my other internet animals in my front room. The little portal window was informative throughout the process, but I did need to download the AmpliFi application to set the configuration to my choosing. The whole process took about 5 minutes to configure and download the latest firmware to the hub, which was very painless.

    The second step: find a home for the two wands. To make the review fair, one went into my office and the other in the bedroom. Both locations were a good distance away from the main hub. All I had to do is turn them on. Everything else was self-configured and again I had to use the app to update the firmware.

    Once the network was complete, the internet dropped out and twice I had to reboot, but I put this down to teething problems with the firmware updates.

    The app

    The app is very informative and allows you to customise the hub and the wand individually. As such, I turned the LED lights off on the bedroom unit and turned off the sound on the hub – it was freaking out the cat! One nifty feature I particularly liked is that you can set up individual profiles or groups within your household, which is great for assigning kid’s devices.

    Conclusion

    I love the overall design, and how easy the kit was to set up. Yes, it isn’t the cheapest, but the quality is sublime. You can buy the hub on its own or as the entire MESH HD system at AmpliFiScan and Amazon.

  • Bill Gates goes Android

    It’s not something I talk about much, but I’ve actually met Bill Gates. He’s a bit shorter in real life and had a lot of bodyguards following him around at the time. We spoke about the Microsoft Smartphone because, way back when, Microsoft was actually pretty successful at this whole smartphone thing.

    Bill Gates goes Android

    When the iPhone came out though, well, it was like trying to perform a U-turn in the Titanic. Microsoft had such a big market share in the business sector (via Pocket PC’s) and popularity in the consumer market with their Smartphones. They saw the relatively expensive iPhone as a toy that would only sell in small numbers, and heck – nobody would ever use one of those in the business world.

    Oh, how things change.

    Finally, years later, after rebooting the Microsoft mobile operating system several times, when that ship had turned; it was pushing against a torrent of iPhone and now Android handsets. The tide was firmly against Microsoft, no matter how many billions were sunk into the project.

    So, it’s with no great surprise that Bill Gates himself has finally switched to an Android handset. The Microsoft co-founder told Fox News Sunday that..

    Recently, I actually did switch to an Android phone.

    He did, though, state that there’s a lot of Microsoft apps on his phone. I’ll admit, these are actually pretty good and this is an area where Microsoft are doing well.

    The actual model of Android wasn’t revealed, and Mr Gates stated that he doesn’t have an iPhone as a second device either.

    If you’re not quite as rich as Bill Gates and want to save money with your Android, take a look at the great android mobile offers from CouponsMonk.

    Specialist app store opens up for Android customers

    Just last month we covered the fact that Google Play is now listing real-money gambling apps. For quite some time before, the iPhone and Android stores have differed in this respect. On the iPhone, you could download gaming apps that let you transfer your own cash into an online account, and you could place a bet. On Android, there was no way of doing this.

    Specialist app store opens up for Android customers

    For those who wanted to have a flutter on the horses via their Android phone, it either had to be via a side-loaded app or directly on the bookies website.
    Companies such as Cherry Rush had plugged the gap before. Their website, on cherryrush.com, provides mobile gaming apps which are real-play casino ones. Even now, after Google Play have allowed those apps into the store, it’s a central place to go if you’re after apps where the money and betting is for real, rather than simulated.

    With such a lot of apps to choose from, the Cherry Rush solution offers staff reviews of each app, including how good the actual casino gaming is and how secure it is. There’s also a stack of screenshots for each app so you can see what it looks like before you download it.

    Specialist app store opens up for Android customers

    If you’re looking for the best pocket companion this football season, it’s a great place to start if you’re looking for the most popular apps, the trending bookies and more. You also get a download and instant play option, with the latter letting you use an app via your mobile internet browser. This is a great option if you worry about cluttering your phone or if you just like to try before downloading.
    With the casino apps at Cherry Rush being free to download it is no wonder that this store has become the go-to place for mobile casino.
