Veracode State of Software Security Report

With the trend of targeted cyber attacks along with the exploitation of common vulnerabilities such as SQL Injection, it is clear that the core software infrastructure of several critical industries remains extremely vulnerable. Released today, the Veracode “State of Software Security Report: Volume 3” uncovered that those security vendors tasked with protecting enterprises are often the most at risk due to the poor quality of their very own software applications. In fact, 72 percent of security products and services applications analyzed in this report failed to meet acceptable levels of security quality. In its most recent State of Software Security report, Veracode analyzed 4,835 applications that were submitted to its cloud-based application security testing platform for independent security verification. That number is nearly double from the previous report (S... (more)

Rethinking Storage for the Cloud Era

Storage at scale pioneer Scality's success in 2011 secured its position as a trailblazer for truly scalable, high performing, yet cost effective object based storage. 2011 was a landmark year for the San Francisco-based storage start-up that has invigorated the cloud storage space with the new concept of organic storage. The year's highlights started with a new multimillion dollar round of funding to fuel global expansion, a great deal of industry recognition, and ended with a raft of new customers and partners less than two years after the company's inception. "The storage industry has never looked so alive and dynamic, and Scality is excited to be part of the step change happening at the heart of it," said Jérôme Lecat, CEO of Scality. "When we burst onto the cloud storage scene just 18 months ago, we determined to rip up the old storage rulebook. We wanted to ad... (more)

Avere Systems' NAS Audit reveals that US storage pros hoard more data than European counterparts

Avere takes on the challenge to wave the flag for NAS optimization benefits across the pond at SNW Europe next week SNW Europe, Frankfurt, Germany - 30th October 2012 - Avere Systems has discovered that the US may appear to be the biggest data hoarders and Europeans have more catching up to do when it comes to considering solutions for NAS optimization. The NAS optimization company has been comparing storage attitudes on both sides of the Atlantic through the results of two independently-sourced surveys: the US-based Pulse Report and the European NAS Audit. One of the biggest differences discovered was in the amount of data managed. In the United States over 41% of the respondents managed over 500TB of storage whereas the Europeans appear to be lagging behind with only 20% managing large capacity arrays. This is reflected in the number of NAS-only systems. The Amer... (more)

Cypherbridge Systems Launches VPN SDK with IKE/IPSec Providing Network Encryption and Firewall Defense

Carlsbad, CA, February 21, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Cypherbridge System launches the uVPN Software Development Kit (SDK); a unified solution combining IKE/IPsec network encryption, plus firewall defense, using a common set of policies that include IP address, port and protocol. These policies simultaneously firewall and block low level connections to the device, monitor traffic flows through the device, and encrypt and authenticate traffic with IKE/IPsec. President of Cypherbridge Systems, Steve Delaney, explains how the new SDK significantly simplifies engineering, deployment and operation: “By combining IPsec and firewall features, we are able to deliver a single SDK that has multiple levels of protection against cyber intrusion in a solution reducing target memory footprint, time-to-market, and Total Cost of Ownership. Typically, users have had to integrate separate SDKs fr... (more)
