Don't let your information get CAUGHT!

Posted by Kim Francisco
Over the past decade, a number of standards, laws and regulations have emerged that require organizations to provide strong security and privacy guarantees. The end result is high expectations when it comes to cyber security awareness and training, both of employees and customers. Take a look at this Anti-Phishing game. For those unfamiliar with the term, a phishing attack occurs when bait is used to “catch” financial information and passwords. This game brings awareness to the scam, while providing key warning signs of phishing scams. When a user falls for a simulated attack and clicks on the URL, PhishGuru takes advantage of the “teachable moment” in the form of a cartoon that offers steps to avoid falling for these

Security Trends - RSA 2010

Posted by Dennis Piche
ANX sent four delegates (including our CEO) to the RSA conference this year with learning in mind;  learning more about what our competition is up to, learning more about potential business partners, and learning more about emerging trends in security.  Here are some of my takeaways from the conference:

Cloud Security:  The Cloud Security Alliance put on a sold out show to kick off the conference on Monday.  Unfortunately I did not arrive in San Francisco until Monday afternoon but I heard they had to turn many away

Website Security and Page Speed

Posted by Barry Chapman
More changes are abound!
I received a couple of comments over the weeks since the new site launched, primarily targeted at our web security practices. First and foremost, our management of user account information; with login process at a close second.
As a security company, we consider our website to serve as a representation of what we are, and the fact that anyone had to question these was really an eye opener. The first concern was ‘how do we manage our user account information?’ All user data is stored in a secure database within our datacenter.

The Importance of Remote Access From Non-Company owned PCs

Posted by Glenn Moore
As I watched reports of the east coast getting hammered by the blizzard, I wondered how many employees wouldn't make it to work.  Events like this remind me how beneficial our PositivePRO Cloud-based remote access really is. 
It's widely accepted that remote access is still one of the best technologies to improve worker productivity.  Something to keep in mind when deploying remote access is that more and more individuals want to access company information from their own PC or laptop.   This is especially true of younger workers.  An increasing number of IT staffs recognize that supporting remote access from non-company issued devices is a requirement.  However, allowing such access presents unique
