Cloud computing is a trending topic for the last couple of years. This service is flexible and allows companies to purchase servers, storage, databases, and other applications. Clouds have become everywhere now. In mid-19 2019, 94% of organizations are using cloud-based applications to protect data, and more companies and organizations have switched to self-hosted systems. This has several reasons.

Are you looking for a cloud-based solution?

There are several reasons why companies switch to self-hosted systems. First of all, it is more cost-effective than using third-party services. Secondly, the data is stored on your servers and not in some unknown location that might be vulnerable to hackers or other threats. Thirdly, there are no limitations with regards to storage space or bandwidth usage that can be imposed by third parties. Finally, you have full control over your system and its security level as well as the ability to customize it according to your needs and preferences without any restrictions from outside forces.

Geolance offers complete freedom when choosing where the data will be stored – on our servers or yours! You can choose between three different options depending on how much control you want over your system’s security level and customization options. If you don’t feel comfortable hosting everything yourself but still want full control over this process we recommend Cloud VPS service which gives you access to a virtual machine with root privileges so that you can install any software application required by your business model without having any problems with compatibility issues due to operating systems used by us (Linux). Another option would be Cloud Server which provides an entire dedicated server hosted at our facility while giving users access only limited privileges such as creating/deleting users, changing passwords, etc., thus allowing them total control over their cloud resources while keeping costs low compared to traditional

Top reasons to choose cloud services

The cloud on-demand data storage and servers can be accessed by multiple users from anywhere in the world. Cloud services are among the most beneficial IT innovation that will help your business to save costs on infrastructure and focus on core competencies. However, choosing the right cloud service is important for everyone who decides to use this innovative technology, and here we share some tips on how to make it right:

·          Decide what cloud service you need

·          Ask potential assessing cloud service providers about their cloud solutions and choose the best one

·          As an end-user, get familiar with the software of your chosen provider

Before you select the right cloud provider, you should determine which applications or specific features you want from them; this will help you to choose the right solution. You can make a list of features, such as storage space, number of databases, software integration, etc. Every provider offers different services and their prices are different too; this is why it is important to make a list of your needs before making any decision. Also, if you want to switch cloud providers in the future, they should provide some kind of cloud migration services for easy transfers

·          Switching  is possible

You will likely change your mind about which cloud service provider you are going to go with when choosing among hundreds of solutions. If you are planning on switching systems then try not only to look at how much it's going to cost but also check what cloud migration is required and how easy it will be for your team to switch.

·          Explore what kind of technical support you can get

If you manage multiple clients or run the system with a small team, make sure that they will provide enough remote access capabilities and technical support; this aspect is extremely important when making this decision because if something goes wrong in the middle of the night, they should help you immediately and resolve the issue in the shortest time possible.

·          Signing up: go with a trial account

Of course, before selecting a particular service provider, we recommend trying out one of their free trial packages so that you can see how well they work and if their system fits your needs. However, keep in mind that you should not sign up for a free trial account under your real name or company name because it could harm your future business relations.

Cloud computing is the way to go, but you should do some research first before selecting one of many providers. Remember to check if they have enough capabilities to help your team work efficiently and resolve any issues quickly. Also, look at the pricing plans offered by each potential service provider and choose one that fits your business budget best. This will ensure that there are no hidden fees or other problems related to payments that can cause stress down the line.

Internet of Things - How to Connect Your Devices

IoT or the Internet of Things is a big trend right now for companies and organizations across the world, but how do you connect these devices so that we can all benefit from them? For this purpose, we need to use middleware. The term 'middleware' covers two types: gateway routers and data aggregation services. Gateway routers gather and analyze data from individual sensors and devices before passing it on to other applications or systems using service buses (which manage device security). Data aggregation services help users make sense of large volumes of incoming data by analyzing them and presenting useful information as reports; they also collect historical data from their repositories at regular intervals. There are several IoT platforms available on the market today which provide users with ready-to-use software which includes the middleware we have just mentioned.

Some of these platforms include

        - The Things Cloud (IBM)

This platform allows users to connect and manage devices that run on Linux, Windows, Android, and other operating systems. It ensures device security by using a TLS/SSL protocol for establishing authentication and secure communication channels between devices and servers; it also comes as a monthly subscription model where you can pay as per the number of your connected devices.

The IoT platform from GE Predix allows users to create applications for any kind of industry – from energy to healthcare – by connecting business-critical assets or things such as pumps, turbines, or sensors. This way, they create a common language between people and technology and can make connections in the industrial world where things and machines communicate and operate.

·          The Thing System (ThingWorx)

This platform is based on a multi-layered architecture that allows users to connect devices easily, manage them securely with end-to-end encryption, generate apps for any device or industry, and view analytics reports in real-time.

The IoT cloud platform from Bosch provides an open-source model for easy connectivity of existing IT cloud infrastructure; it also offers ready-made applications for smart homes and buildings, tracks and trace solutions, security & surveillance systems, smart metering, etc.

There are many more middleware platforms available on the market today but we've highlighted a few that seem promising.

Networking - What are the Biggest Networking Threats

Networking can be challenging especially in larger corporations where different departments need to connect to share files and data preservation expectations. Networks that do not have proper security measures in place can open up doors for potential cyber-attacks or other loopholes that could cause damage. For instance, if your company utilizes a local area network (LAN) but does not restrict access to confidential information, you should consider tightening your network security by adding extra layers of protection; however, this requires planning and preparation to avoid disrupting productivity within your organization. Wired LANs are becoming obsolete now a days because they lack speed due to wires getting tangled every time someone moves their desk; the solution is to use wireless networks instead which offer more flexibility and versatility. To secure your wireless network, you should consider adding the following technologies:

·          Wireless Intrusion Prevention System (WIPS)

This technology stops unauthorized access points from connecting to the system by identifying malicious packets on the network; it works with 802.11i/p/q standard-compatible devices like routers or modem switches.

Also known as Lightweight Extensible Authentication Protocol (LEAP), this protocol allows users to connect to a network using an identity; it is based on MS-CHAPv2 authentication which has known security vulnerabilities but offers fast performance on slow networks.

Wireless Network Management System (WNMS) Allows you to centrally monitor all devices that are connected to your systems; this also comes as a cloud-based solution that can store and analyze historical data to track user activity.

·          Cloud Security & Monitoring Platforms

These platforms offer network monitoring, real-time threat detection, and automated response mechanisms to eliminate threats before they cause damage; it is an essential tool for meeting compliance requirements like SOX, HIPAA, PCI DSS, etc.

Industrial control systems (ICS) are used in nearly every industry like the military or healthcare because they perform tasks that maintain all kinds of equipment - from helicopters to power plants - with pinpoint accuracy. ICS usually consists of several computers interconnected through routers; these networks are essential for processing information on how efficiently machines are running at any given time. If you're looking for affordable enterprise-grade ICS security solutions, Anixx offers different technologies that can protect your systems from cyber attacks; one example is the Cyber Guardian which secures industrial protocols like Modbus TCP/IP and Siemens S7 over IP.

·          Secure Your Machine-to-Machine (M2M) Network

This technology encrypts all communication between smart devices using secure modules so unauthorized access cannot occur; it also comes with an automated security management system to track alerts in real-time.

An advanced cloud PaaS platform used by many Fortune 500 companies to connect their hardware assets without having to rely on conventional service providers; allows businesses to create new revenue streams, reduce maintenance costs, and increase system uptime.

When deploying a new device to a production network, organizations need to determine which LAN segments the machine will reside on and what security measures need to be applied. This can be done by adding a virtual LAN (VLAN) for each segment with proper permissions, but it is challenging with static IP addresses because old machines have their configurations embedded in hardware - this leads to confusion if you try moving devices between VLANs as policies may conflict with one another.

·          Implement an Automated Provisioning System

This solution uses automation tools to configure your network so you don't have multiple users working on the same computer at once; it also makes it easier for admins to move devices from one VLAN to another.

Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is used by most networks to assign IP addresses to devices; it also provides subnet masks for routing traffic between VLANs, along with other scopes that are linked to DNS servers and domain name resolution. If your DHCP server crashes or goes offline, most network admins would reset the device so it can reconfigure itself for new settings, but this isn't very efficient because you have to wait for the machine to reboot before accessing web applications again.

·          Implement a Zero-Touch Provisioning System

This type of provisioning configures devices automatically on first boot through an automated cloud platform - allowing everyone in an organization to access immediately without waiting for services like DHCP to come back online.

Many organizations need to monitor devices running on their network, which is why Tripwire offers a cloud-based solution that can monitor the status of all assets at any given time; it can also send out alerts if certain conditions are met or thresholds are breached - like when an unexpected reboot occurs, or there is unusual activity on the computer.·         

Monitor Devices & Identify Security Threats

Monitor applications on your network or on individual machines with this real-time threat detection service that delivers actionable reports on user access and abnormal behavior; you'll be able to identify malware, hackers trying to access confidential data, and more.

Advanced cyber attackers will use PowerShell scripts inside memory without writing anything to disk so they cannot be tracked; it also prevents forensic teams from detecting an intrusion. When attackers use PowerShell scripts to download malware, they can set command lines to delete all evidence with one click once the script is finished running; this cloud tech method is known as "wiping-out".

Monitor Script Usage & Detect Malware Infections

Monitor PowerShell logs in real-time so you can find a suspicious activity before your system gets infected by illicit code, along with any other threats connected to executable files on systems in your network. With this cloud-based solution, admins can see what scripts are being used and their purpose - whether it's for legitimate administration or malicious purposes.

An advanced security gateway that uses machine learning capabilities to monitor threats in real-time, including ransomware attacks that encrypt files on corporate servers or endpoints; it can also help detect suspicious behavior like data exfiltration on users' machines.

Detect & Respond to Ransomware Threats

This cloud-based platform is used by many large organizations because it allows admins to stop malware infections before they spread across the network; admins also get immediate alerts if there are new threats detected on user devices so they can take immediate action, minimizing downtime and damage.

If an organization doesn't have proper security measures in place, intruders will be able to access confidential information such as usernames and passwords along with other credentials like a credit card - this exposes companies to legal liability and a loss of trust from customers.

Detect & Respond to Threats Proactively

This cloud-based platform provides real-time threat detection and response service that alerts admins if malware has breached the network, along with recommendations on how to prevent these incidents in the future; it also provides visibility into all user activity (even outside your network) so you can see who is accessing what remotely.

Many companies choose managed security providers because they offer 24/7 protection backed by SIEM capabilities; this helps organizations detect threats faster across their entire IT infrastructure, including physical servers and networks that may be located in different geographical regions (along with virtualized ones).

·          Implement a Threat Detection System

Companies that need around-the-clock threat detection based on real-time network activity can use this cloud-based solution that delivers actionable security intelligence to minimize business disruptions and data loss.

Mobile and web applications

That store and process data on cloud servers can be vulnerable to attacks where hackers intercept requests and change what is sent over the Internet; this opens up organizations' systems to potential theft of sensitive information, which creates a loss of revenue and damages their reputations.

Monitor Cloud Services for Unusual Activity

This cloud-based solution provides instant visibility into cloud security so you can identify suspicious activity in near real-time; you'll get alerts if cybercriminals try to access your data, along with recommendations on how to prevent these incidents from happening again in the future.
