How AI is Mishandled to Become a Cybersecurity Risk

The rapid evolution of artificial intelligence algorithms has turned this technology into an element of critical business processes. The caveat is that there is a lack of transparency in the design and practical applications of these algorithms, so they can be used for different purposes.

Enterprise Security at Home: Remote Access Options

Within the confines of a personal residence, there is normally a modicum of trust involved with those who share rooms together–whether it’s a family, a group of friends or another team of humans.

Dell’s New Latitude Detachable: Flexible for Changing Workforces

Mobility innovations have inspired devices, including notebooks, tablets and smartphones for more than a decade.

The Surface line of products is fascinating because it was created to fight a threat that mainly didn’t materialize. Granted, that may have been because Surface showed up, but the iPad threat it was designed to fight pretty much petered out early last decade. The iPad is getting stronger, but so is Surface, and without […]

Data security is always a major concern for consumers.

In the world of microprocessors, there is a battle going on: who will be the King of Process Technology?

Conventional approaches to privileged access and identity management are ineffective in today’s cloud-oriented DevSecOps environments. The concept of least privilege access still remains foundational – and traditional privileged access solutions can deliver effective security in situations where development and operations are segregated, and on-premises architecture predominates. It is not enough, however, to simply grant permanent […]

I couldn’t…

A dozen covid-19 vaccines are now being used around the world.
