Cloud computing and the 1st amendment

Posted by Yaron Levi
I am regular member of the ANX blog squad, as such I am on the hook every other week to turn in my post. If that’s not enough the other ANX bloggers are pretty damn smart and creative, so there is a high standard to meet in order to stay in the game hence my creativity should stay on high alert all the time. Earlier this week I turned in my blog post and to my horror it was censored by our Chief Blog Inquisitor (that to say my Director of Marketing). I thought it was a great post (and so did he) but it was rated one notch above PG-13 hence could not be published ……… argh….
Being the knucklehead that I am, I got pissed! In my mind it was a violation of my rights under the 1st amendment for freedom of speech. For a

PCI Compliance is a Helpful Hassle

Posted by Glenn Moore
One of my favorite summertime activities is camping with my family.  Campfires, hiking, outdoor cooking and just unplugging from the daily grind.  We camp in a 30' RV which really blurs the line between camping and staying at a hotel.  The RV has air conditioning, shower/bathroom, and a full kitchen.  It's far from roughing it!

Operating an RV is actually pretty easy but there are some mandatory requirements.  Last weekend I finished my annual ritual of preparing the RV for winter storage.  It's a bit of a hassle.  You need to drain the fresh water system and then add 5 gallons of RV anti-freeze.  The solution needs to flow completely through all the PVC plumbing in the

National Data Breach Notification Laws Getting Closer

Posted by Glenn Moore
Political momentum is building for a nationalized approach to data breach notification.  I think it's just a question of "when" this will become the law of the land.
Here's a quick summary of the laws under consideration:

The U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee recently approved two bills that would require organizations with data breaches to report them to potential victims.
The first bill is called the Data Breach Notification Act and is sponsored by Senator Dianne Feinstein of California.  It would require U.S. agencies and businesses that engage in interstate commerce to report data breaches to victims whose personal information "has been, or is reasonably believed to have been,

SSL/TTS Vulnerability Response (CVE-2009-3555)

Posted by Anthony Maughan
There's been much coverage and discussion of recently disclosed SSL vulnerabilities. ANXeBusiness is jumping into the discussion with the help of a special guest blogger, Steve Dispensa.  Marsh Ray, who is on Steve's development team, is credited with discovering this vulnerability.
Steve is currently the CTO of PhoneFactor and is one of the founding partners and original developers of our cloud-based remote access product, PositivePRO.  The idea behind PositivePRO was that remote access provided by the internal IT staff was expensive and cumbersome to maintain.  Steve and his crew were determined to develop a Software-as-a-Service alternative that was simpler and more effective than traditional appliance-based approaches.
