Key Properties of Endpoint Security Solutions

|

For decades, organizations had considered the antivirus to be the best (and probably the only) solution for securing endpoints. Although antivirus solutions indeed help detect and remove malware, they fall short when it comes to tackling new-age security loopholes. Moreover, legacy solutions can also create several integration issues with modern operating systems and can create new security vulnerabilities. Given the sophistication with which today’s hackers can bypass antivirus solutions to produce countless unique and unknown attacks, it takes more than just an antivirus solution to keep organizations safe. What to look for in endpoint security solutions Endpoint security solutions allow cybersecurity professionals to gauge every possible access route that a hacker might deploy to launch...

|

Amidst the global lockdown due to COVID-19, art in every form is being celebrated and one such philosophical line by writer Terry Pratchett comes to mind: “All was black, gloomy and awful. There was no light at the end of the tunnel – or if there was, it was an oncoming train.” Even as we are struggling to understand the impact of the pandemic on businesses, can the Datacenter industry see the oncoming train at the end of the tunnel? While in many cases this pandemic has proved to be a roadblock, it has also taught people to be flexible and adopt technologies that can keep the show going on. Let’s explore some of the domains in the Datacenter sector that have the potential to grow in this chaotic and uncertain situation. Cloud Computing: The pandemic has necessitated mandatory remote worki...

Emerging Technologies continue to drive future Innovations in Healthcare!!

In the current situation where the globe is fighting a pandemic, emerging technologies seems to be solving for a host of challenges for the healthcare industry. Emerging technologies helping during the COVID times Artificial Intelligence: Canada based BlueDot caught the virus early using an AI algorithm, which looks at more than 100 datasets—including news sources, airline ticket sales, demographic data, climate data, and animal populations—to predict and track the spread of disease. It detected an outbreak of pneumonia cases in Wuhan, China, on December 31, 2019, and identified the cities that were at the highest risk of facing outbreaks of their own. Automation: The use of robots in hospitals have become a common scene across the globe. IOT and Analytics: IoT technologies are helping wit...

DStreams vs. DataFrames: Two Flavors of Spark Streaming

|

This post is a guest publication written by Yaroslav Tkachenko, a Software Architect at Activision. Apache Spark is one of the most popular and powerful large-scale data processing frameworks. It was created as an alternative to Hadoop’s MapReduce framework for batch workloads, but now it also supports SQL, machine learning, and stream processing. Today I want to focus on Spark Streaming and show a few options available for stream processing. Stream data processing is used when dynamic data is generated continuously, and it is often found in big data use cases. In most instances data is processed in near-real time, one record at a time, and the insights derived from the data are also used to provide alerts, render dashboards, and feed machine learning models that can react quickly to new t...

Watch Where You’re Going? – AI and the Media Industry

|

It’s the crisis period. A worldwide lockdown was thrust upon you. While you’re already used to sitting on that couch occasionally to ‘Netflix and chill’ after a tiring workweek, this time you don’t have other alternatives for entertainment beyond that couch. You’re browsing through the content across all OTT platforms and eventually end up binge-watching innumerable shows. All of these suited to your taste, almost tailor-made for you. In the end, you’re possibly a satisfied consumer of the content. Better still if you belong to the other end, the one involved in serving this content. Understanding consumer behaviour is imperative when providing tailor-made solutions to users and AI plays a major role in generating favourable outcomes. Machine learning algorithms are fed with data segmentat...
