The Benefits of nCipher's New Serviced-Based Hardware Security Module (HSM)

October 08, 2019 / by Chuck White

When considering the intersection of Roots of Trust and the accessibility of services provided by cloud architecture, reliable options quickly become scarce. That is why we at Fornetix are excited to see nCipher launch their "nShield as a Service" (nSaaS) offering. With the combination of Internet of Things (IoT) based technologies and the embracing of "as a Service" cloud capabilities, there is a growing need for HSM services that can be provisioned and integrated with cloud principles while not belonging to a specific cloud vendor. At Fornetix, we built our technology to play to the middle, enabling public, private, and hybrid cloud solutions. We are excited to see nCipher’s nSaaS solution parallel our own. We believe the joint approach will help customers embrace effective use of cryptography no matter how they use technology, whether it be cloud first/cloud native, hybrid cloud, or private cloud.

Ransomware vs Data Breach: What They Are and How You Can Protect Your Enterprise From Them

September 03, 2019 / by Ariel Mahlmann

'Ariel Mahlmann is the Channel Specialist for Fornetix. Ariel focuses on developing partner relationships and conducting cybersecurity market research to highlight Fornetix' industry leading products and strategic partnerships.

There are two popular types of malicious attacks: A data breach and a ransomware attack. You may have heard these two terms used interchangeably, however they're not quite the same.  A data breach occurs when a hacker gains access to information and steals the unencrypted data from the system. This is often used to steal financial, medical, and other personal information. A ransomware attack occurs when hackers gain access to a system and hold the data hostage in exchange for a ransom, regardless of whether the data is encrypted or unencrypted. A hacker may keep the data inside the enterprise's system but encrypt it so the right people can’t gain access to it. They may also remove the data from the system and return it in exchange for ransom. Both types of attacks have been around for a while, but recently, ransomware attacks have become more prevalent.

How to Identify IoT Pitfalls and Adopt Technology with Confidence

April 10, 2019 / by Chuck White

When looking at technology adoption, I am frequently reminded of Pandora’s Box from Greek mythology. This metaphor rings true when considering the Internet of Things (IoT). Whereas Pandora released a host of evils into the world, with IoT we have released new concerns associated with multiple technologies, multiple standards, scale, and security (or as I like to say, resiliency). When considering the information that flows from the edge, through the cloud, and ultimately to the data center, the lowest common denominator for protecting information is trust created by cryptography (as noted by nCipher’s Juan Asenjo in the other half of this blog series). In this blog, we are going to start by acknowledging the pitfalls of our particular Pandora and then discuss how we find hope in the solution provided by nCipher and Fornetix.

Guest Post: Before You Dive Into IoT, Do These Three Things

April 10, 2019 / by Juan Asenjo

Olympic high diving requires concentration and self-control. Before divers jump off a 10-meter platform, they pause at the edge and concentrate on their goal: elegantly perform the acrobatic maneuver and gracefully pierce the water causing minimum surface disturbance. This same disciplined approach is required when adopting new and revolutionary technologies, such as those now available through the Internet of Things (IoT). Decision makers must assess the risks and benefits, consider potential difficulties, and then take the jump.

Security and the Internet of Everything – Are We Ready?

December 28, 2018 / by Cathy Wolniewicz

The demand for connected devices is growing exponentially, but the technology to secure these devices is lagging creating cyber security vulnerabilities at a massive scale.

The Current State of Cyber Security

Every day we hear about breaches, hacks, and cyber-attacks affecting banks, hospitals, transportation, and even entire cities. In some instances, the impact can mean life or death. Our most trusted institutions – like the US election process – are not the pillars of security they once were. And yet the demand for “connected everything” continues to grow in all sectors and across the globe.
