Keeping IT assets secure has never been more challenging. But breaking down potential vulnerabilities by the numbers can leave even seasoned IT pros breathless.I reached out to security expert Gaurav Banga, founder of vulnerability assessment and management firm Balbix, to give me the skinny. His threat insights shine a light on the growing use of AI and machine learning tools in the broader digital security strategies of large and mid-sized business.By the numbersThe simple math here is what's so eye opening. I asked Banga to give me a breakdown of the threat map faced by large organizations, such as Fortune 500 companies.His answer:Take just the asset type of line of business (LOB) apps and just the attack vector of shared passwords. A Fortune 500 or 1000 size company will easily have 750+ apps and 1500 users for each app. The risk multiplies to 1M+ potential shared passwords (e.g. a user having the same password for Facebook or LinkedIn as they do for Salesforce.com or Office … [Read more...] about Exponential risk: The mathematical case for an AI toolkit in enterprise cyber security

OVHRead on for our detailed analysis of each hostEvery business needs a website, but finding the right website hosting package isn't always easy. Many plans are targeted primarily at home users, and don't have the power that businesses need.Take email, for instance. We've seen hosting plans offer as few as five email addresses for a website, and with inboxes limited to a few hundred megabytes, that’s potentially a major issue for any business. Be sure to check out the email specs of any hosting plan before you sign up.An SSL certificate is a must-have these days for any professional or business website, but these aren't included with every plan. Fortunately, they don't have to be expensive. Many hosts now offer free SSL certificates from the Internet Security Research Group's Let's Encrypt project, and although web stores might need something more, these are perfectly adequate for standard … [Read more...] about Best small business web hosting for 2018

In July, I wrote what I was hearing about Microsoft's new plan for managing corporate Windows 10 devices for a monthly fee. Today, September 17, Microsoft officially took the wraps off this service, which is branded "Microsoft Managed Desktop" (MMD).Via MMD, Microsoft will provide business users with the option of having Microsoft manage their Windows 10 PCs. This means Microsoft will provide users with pre-configured Windows 10 PC hardware; ongoing Windows 10 feature updates, as well as security updates and other fixes; and overall management of those devices for a single, per-user monthly subscription fee. (The cost of this service will vary by user, based on size of the customer, type of device, etc.) Those who buy MMD will get Microsoft 365 Enterprise -- the combination of Windows 10 Enterprise, Office 365 and Enterprise Mobility + Security -- that is ready to run on Windows 10 devices which meet Microsoft's MMD specification and runtime quality bar. At first, qualifying devices … [Read more...] about Microsoft Managed Desktop plan turns Windows 10 device management over to Microsoft
