Network security and the IoT

Posted by Daniel Noworatzky on May 23, 2018 3:54:00 PM

 

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a field of information and communications technology (ICT) that has been increasing exponentially for the past few years, with the number of connected devices now exceeding the world’s human population.

But many IoT device users may not be aware of the inherent security risks of their internet-connected devices, according to a January 2018  study by the Cybersecurity Research Institute. According to the report, hackers have already proven themselves adept at discovering flaws in these devices and turning them into botnets (botnets are a collection of connected devices infected with malware and controlled without the owners' knowledge).

In this article, we review some of the vulnerabilities inherent in connected devices and steps you can take to secure your network and protect against hackers.

TP-Link's innovative wireless solution powerhouse

Posted by Daniel Noworatzky on May 16, 2018 3:49:00 PM

Product Review

Wireless networks have evolved into an almost ubiquitous service. Coffee shops, restaurants and shopping malls are all expected to provide Wi-Fi connectivity as part of the customer experience. For many establishments such as hotels, the existence and the quality of a wireless network can make or break its ratings on travel websites. Large corporate enterprises, educational institutions and conference centers all have extensive facilities where large-scale Wi-Fi networks are not only desirable, but absolutely necessary.

With the needs of the market so great and the breakneck speed at which this technology keeps advancing, a solution which is innovative, cost effective, futureproof and easy to deploy and manage is a must.

TP-Link, a company which entered the international market in the mid-2000s, has become a major contender to provide just what the market needs. In this article, we review the new EAP225V3 indoor and EAP225 outdoor access points,  TP-Link’s smart PoE switches and its world-class EAP Controller Software.

Posted by Daniel Noworatzky on May 9, 2018 3:48:00 PM

...Especially if they have lousy internet service

Because of its name, most people think of SD-WAN as being relevant only for companies with multiple sites. But SD-WAN can do wonders for many types of companies – even a single-site business located in a remote area with an unreliable internet connection.

Posted by Guest Blogger on Apr 18, 2018 3:48:00 PM

By Leo D’Alessandro, Product Marketing Manager, Sangoma Technologies

If you are looking for a cloud-based phone service for your business, you may find it confusing to decide between the many options available.

Since many of them are already bundling local & long-distance calling, caller ID and voicemail into their monthly service, how do you know which option makes the most sense for your business?

Below are some of the top criteria to keep in mind when choosing your cloud-based service.

Improve your crisis preparedness with Epygi’s Security Solution

Posted by Daniel Noworatzky on Apr 11, 2018 3:44:00 PM

As unwanted and unexpected as they are, crises do happen, and being unprepared only makes them worse. In a 2017 PwC survey, 65 percent of respondents reported experiencing at least one crisis in the past four years. Despite their prevalence, a 2013 study by Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer found that more than 40% of respondents had no type of plan in place for dealing with a crisis.

Regardless of your customer’s current state of readiness, you can help them improve their security measures and crisis response even more with applications that run on their data network. And, if they have an on-premise IP PBX, they already have an arsenal of tools available in their existing system.
