Recently, the cloud world experienced a huge punch to the gut. Microsoft Azure went down for some hours in different services, affecting millions of users in many different regions around the world. Once again, it raises the question of whether “cloud” is the right way to go or not. Perhaps the concern is that you can become “too cloudy.” I don´t believe anyone has the ultimate, definitive answer to that question – yet.
The workforce is becoming increasingly mobile, offering greater convenience and productivity for employees on the go. However, this shift has created significant security concerns as well. Providing remote access to business applications and data can become a real IT headache as people move from one location to the next and log in from a variety of mobile devices.
Knowing what’s myth and what’s fact is essential to avoid running unnecessary risks to your business. Myths can lead to false assumptions and thinking that your business is not at risk of being breached by hackers. So let's take a closer look at some of the most common myths out there.
We can all agree that there are serious IT threats out there today that all companies need to protect themselves against. Working with IT security every day I have seen a lot of what today’s hacking community has to offer, yet I’m still amazed by the strength and sophistication of the hacking tools used to steal identities and breach corporate networks.
It is summer, surf is up and most of us already have or are planning to take some time off to relax and reload our batteries.
Now I don’t want to spoil your vacation or cause unnecessary stress, but have you thought about what happens when your employees return from summer vacation and cannot remember their passwords?
Today is a big day for the team here at SMS PASSCODE as we release SMS PASSCODE 7.2.
As most of you will recall we released version 7.0 earlier this year, which introduced a number of unique features to the market. Features such as Secure Device Provisioning (included as standard in the SMS PASSCODE MFA license) that enables secure and convenient self-enrollment of ActiveSync devices into an organization without the need to contact IT.
Infosecurity Europe 2014 - Europe's largest IT security show is taking place at Earl's Court in London this week, and our team is on site engaging with the IT community and presenting how SMS PASSCODE ensures safe and easy access for employees logging into corporate networks and cloud applications remotely. User authentication is a hot topic for both the businesses visiting the show as well as the media here at Infosecurity. Below is a short video interview with Torben Andersen, Chief Commercial Officer at SMS PASSCODE, that talks about some of the reasons why businesses of all sizes are concerned about keeping their data safe from hackers, and why multi-factor authentication is the most natural place to start when building your defense. In the interview Torben also covers the impact of the Heartbleed bug and goes on to explain what adaptive user authentication is and why it is the next generation in multi-factor authentication.
During the past week voices from across the industry have been commenting and predicting on the Heartbleed flaw. So to avoid speculation with regard to SMS PASSCODE, we should like to be clear. SMS PASSCODE is not affected by the Heartbleed flaw - Neither the product nor the company.
