How to prevent illness on your network - with the right medicine

How the IT world wised up to the need for tech that ‘just works’

Believe it or not, but once upon a time, we expected the computer industry to sell us products that were complicated to set up and required specialist expertise at every turn. Early personal computer software involved spending lots of time reading manuals and scratching heads before we got to grips with character-based operating systems and their applications’ cryptic syntax and commands.

Deflecting DDoS: Key tactics in the battle against IoT-powered attacks

What makes a DDoS successful? I asked myself that question at the end of August when the central bank of Spain, Banco d’Espana, was hit by a DDoS attack that took its website temporarily offline.

The bank issued a statement acknowledging the attack and stating that “no damage” had been done and its operations, as a central bank with no commercial arm, were not affected, implying that the attack was not successful. Meanwhile, the hacktivist group, Anonymous Catalonia, claimed responsibility...

Hyperledger and Enterprise Ethereum Alliance team up to push forward enterprise blockchain

If blockchain technologies are going to seriously infiltrate the enterprise, then an endorsement from two leading industry players would not go amiss. The Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (EEA) has teamed up with Hyperledger to seemingly do just that.
