What Is the 'EFAIL' Vulnerability and What Can I Do About It?

May 18, 2018 / by Jon Mentzell

What is efail?

Securing Virtual Environments Shouldn't be an Afterthought

Portability, versatility, efficiency, and cost effectiveness — these are just a few of the advantages of moving to virtualized environments. Virtualization allows enterprises to shift datacenters full of equipment down to a just a few servers. A smaller footprint means less power consumption, lowered cost of ownership, and less overhead.

February 21, 2018 / by Jeremy Sturm

“Smart” Doesn’t Mean “Secure”

Prior to 1975, there was no such thing as a smart home. Prior to 1985, all radio systems were analog. Prior to 1990, all phone systems were analog. Prior to 1974, all utility metering was analog.
