While the concept of the multi-sensor or multi-directional camera is not new, there have been noteworthy advancements that make these cameras the best choice for many types of security installations.

How Unified Device Management Is Critical to BYOD Enterprises
on November 1, 2014 at 4:00 am
Eight months: That’s the average amount of time most IT security breaches go unnoticed. Security enterprises need to establish not only ways to protect themselves from these breaches but ways to uncover them in real-time, before they become major business disruptions. And as Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and mobility continue to transform the way we do business, many security managers and IT executives are finding that if they don’t initiate a robust security policy, employees are likely to use personal laptops and mobile devices to conduct business anyway. &nbs

Forced Password Reset? Check Your Assumptions
by BrianKrebs on August 21, 2019 at 11:58 am
Almost weekly now I hear from an indignant reader who suspects a data breach at a Web site they frequent that has just asked the reader to reset their password. Further investigation almost invariably reveals that the password reset demand was not the result of a breach but rather the site's efforts to identify customers who are reusing passwords from other sites that have already been hacked. But ironically, many companies taking these proactive steps soon discover that their explanation as to why they're doing it can get misinterpreted as more evidence of lax security. This post attempts to unravel what's going on here.
The Rise of “Bulletproof” Residential Networks

But this is the story of a sprawling "bulletproof residential VPN" service that appears to have been built by acquiring chunks of Internet addresses from some the largest ISPs and mobile data providers in the United States and abroad.

by BrianKrebs on August 13, 2019 at 9:57 pm
Most Microsoft Windows (ab)users probably welcome the monthly ritual of applying security updates about as much as they look forward to going to the dentist: It always seems like you were there just yesterday, and you never quite know how it's all going to turn out. Fortunately, this month's patch batch from Redmond is mercifully light, at least compared to last month.
