Launching an online multivendor store brings in a lot of research. From knowing how to plan the whole business to a platform that can help you make a good start, every step is critical. You need a platform where admin and vendors can manage the number of things like products handling, sales management, product catalog, payment etc. without any hassle. Speaking of choosing the right multivendor platforms, here’s a comparison between two leading platforms you can choose from: YoKart and CS Cart.

 

YoKart:

YoKart is the only dedicated multivendor ecommerce platform in the market. It’s one of the few systems that have pulled in huge attention so quickly due to lucrative features. There are more of such things like its award winning status and budget friendly plans that claim to meet the interests of small and medium scale startups.

 

CS-Cart:

CS-Cart is an ecommerce platform that delivers great flexibility and offers good scope for business specific customization. It’s scalable in design and offers reliable solution for SMBs.

 

Comparison:

 

Features:

In terms of features, both the platforms are head to head. Both platforms offer multiple payment gateways, responsive mobile design website, SEO friendly, and a good set of other required features. What sets YoKart apart from CS-Cart is that you get the same set of features across all packages. Whereas CS-Cart “Built in Editor” feature sets it apart from the YoKart.

 

Pricing

This is where YoKart leads in the chart. With YoKart you can start your full fledge multivendor store at just $250. It is a one-time fee and the license is yours for the lifetime. You can customize the platform as per your needs. Coming to CS Cart, it offers a free version but the features are limited especially NO to multivendor functionality. To convert your store into multivendor, you have to pay $1450 in CS Cart. It is a one-time fee. Both the platforms offer 30 day money back guarantee.

What is WannaCry?

A worldwide cyber-attack has been happening since Friday, affecting more than 200,000+ organizations in 150+ countries. The WANNACRY RANSOMWARE ATTACK has rapidly become the nastiest digital disaster to strike the internet, crippling transportation and hospitals globally. But, it progressively appears that it is not the work of hacker brains. Instead, cyber-security detectives see the recent breakdown of cyber-criminal scheme, which reveals amateur mistakes made at every steps.damage caused by ransomware attacks

How does Ransomware Work?

Ransomware is a kind of cyber-attack, in which, hackers take control of a computer system and block access to it until a ransom is paid. The cyber criminals need to download a type of malicious software onto a system within the network to gain access to the system. This is often done by making the victim click on a link or download it by mistake. Once the software gets into the victim’s computer, the hackers can launch an attack that will lock all the files it finds within the network. It tends to be a gradual process with files being encrypted one after the other.

Though the infection stage is somewhat different for each Ransomware version, the key stages are as follows:

Ransomware cyber-attack

  • Initially, the victim gets an email that includes a malicious link or a malware attachment. Alternatively, the contagion can originate from a malicious website that delivers a security exploit to create a backdoor on the victim’s PC by using a susceptible software from the system.
  • If the victim clicks on the link or downloads and opens the attachment, a downloader (payload) will be placed on the affected PC.
  • The downloader uses a list of domains or C&C servers to download the Ransomware program on the system.
  • The contacted C&C server responds by sending back the requested data.
  • The malware then encrypts the entire hard disk content, personal files, and sensitive information. Everything, including data stored in cloud accounts (Google Drive, Dropbox) synced on the PC is encrypted by the malware. It can also encrypt data on other computers connected to the local network.
  • Then a warning pops up on the screen with instructions on how to pay for the decryption key.

Taking Ransomware Protection to Next Level

One should take the threat of Ransomware seriously and do something about it before it smashes the data.

Here are few precautions to

Local PC:

Step 1: Do not store important data only on your PC. Take 2 backups of data: on an external hard drive and in the cloud – Dropbox/Google Drive/etc.

Step 2: The Dropbox/Google Drive/OneDrive/ applications should not be turned on by default.

Step 3: Turn off macros in the Microsoft Office suite – Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.

In the browser:

  • Block and set the plugins to ask for permissions for the following plugins from the browser: Adobe Flash, Adobe Reader, Java and Silverlight and activate the plugins when needed.
  • Adjust the browsers’ security and privacy settings for increased protection.
  • Update all outdated plugins and add-ons from my browsers.
  • Use an ad-blocker to avoid the threat of potentially malicious ads.

Online Behaviour:

  • Never open spam emails or emails from unknown senders.
  • Never download attachments from spam emails or suspicious emails.
  • Never click links in spam emails or suspicious emails.
  • Use Anti-ransomware security tools such as Norton, Bitdefender, Kaspersky, Trend Micro Internet Security, Zemana Anti-malware.
  • Use a reliable, paid antivirus product that includes an automatic update module and a real-time scanner.

“Should I pay the ransom or not?”

The answer is a big NO.

Paying the ransom does not give guarantee that the online criminals at the other end of the Bitcoin transfer will give the decryption key. And even if they do, there will be further greedy attacks, which will become a never-ending malicious cycle of cyber-crime.

Putting things into perspective, 1 out of every 4 cyber-crime victim who paid the ransom didn’t get their data back. They lost both the information and their money.

How to get the data back without paying the ransom?

There are many versions and types of Ransomware, but cyber security researchers are working round the clock to break the encryption that at least some of them use. There are many other cryptoware strains that are well coded and only specialists are able to crack.

 

Not sure if your system in secure? Don’t Worry!!

Utility apps are essential for smart users and they actually make your iPhone useable anywhere, anytime, which makes it one of the favorite categories for mobile app developers to create an app. These apps are quick access apps that help users in getting the information or tasks that need to be done immediately. Some of the examples for utility apps are apps featuring weather reports, stock prices, cricket scores etc.

 

Below is the list of utility apps for iPhone

 

Safari:

The web browser that come to every iPhone is Safari. Tabs in Safari lets users to keep multiple pages open at the same time so that they can switch between them or refer them back whenever they want, unlike an intentional glitch in Google Chrome that would reload the webpages if the corresponding tabs are left open for some time.

 

Dark Sky:

As we enter a new era in #database technology with the introduction of Oracle’s Autonomous Database Cloud, it is time for organizations to get up to speed in terms of what it enables for the business, and for DBAs, as well, to prepare for the changes to their roles. Recently, during a DBTA webcast, Maria Colgan, Oracle's master product manager, reflected on the next generation of cloud technology, the autonomous database architecture, and what DBAs can do today to prepare for a successful transition to a cloud-driven business environment.

While it may seem revolutionary, Oracle has actually been on the journey to the autonomous database for the past 20 years since the introduction of Oracle 9i with the introduction of features such as Automatic Undo Management and Automatic Query Rewrite. And, over the years, the use of automation has steadily increased.

 

Highlights of the #Oracle Autonomous Database are that it is self-driving because it automates database and infrastructure management, monitoring, and tuning; self-securing, in that it protects from both external attacks and malicious internal users; and self-repairing because it protects from all downtime including planned maintenance, according to Colgan.

Key benefits of the Oracle Autonomous Database include freeing #DBAS from generic, operational tasks, and allowing them to work on projects that deliver higher value to their organizations; reducing labor as well as human error and cost; and providing more security and reliability than a manually managed database, said Colgan.

The autonomous database covers the full mission-critical database lifecycle—spanning activities including provisioning, migration, security, protection of data from failure or regional outages, patches and upgrades, optimization, and enabling elastic scalability.

Colgan covered what the autonomous database offers specifically, how it makes those capabilities possible, and also touched on what it will mean for the DBA role.

According to Colgan, today, DBAs spend far more time on maintenance than innovation with the bulk of their hours devoted to generic tasks such as integration, and tuning of systems, network, and storage; database provisioning and patching; database backups, H/A, and disaster recovery; and database optimization.

With the advent of the autonomous database, DBAs will be able to devote more time to activities that deliver more value to the business and also help improve the end user experience, said Colgan.

However, she stressed, the onus is on DBAs to prepare now so they can help guide the business to what it needs and also work with developers on the features and functionality that should be used to improve end user experience. The business will look to DBAs to determine what database cloud service should be used, and DBAs will be in control of the end to end service. And, DBAs will need to know what each database cloud service offers in terms of availability, security, performance, and scalability in order to pick the best database cloud service, she added.

Creating a Strategic IT-OT (Informational Technology - Operational Technology) investment plan is essential for all manufacturing organizations.  With all the opportunities to fund projects, which ones are the most important can only be understood, if considered as part of an overall corporate investment strategy.  Too often, IT and OT investments are considered separately.  While IT investments may have higher visibility across the enterprise, OT investments can also have a significant impact on the business. 

 

IT-OT investment plan challenges

As Mike Williams, ARC Associate indicated in his opening remarks for a session on this topic at the recent ARC Industry Forum in Orlando, owner-operators often find themselves in the challenging position relative to IT and OT created by mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures.  These business events create several technical and organizational challenges around IT and OT assets.   Mike asked the audience if any of the following issues sound familiar:

  • Incompatible IT infrastructures
  • Custom applications or configurations not well integrated
  • End-of-life issues stress an already challenging budget
  • Dwindling skill resources to support and sustain the installed base

 

Of course, many in the audience could relate to one or more of those issues within their own organizations.  So, what to do about it?  Mr. Williams’ experience through his prior career with Dow Chemical and assisting many other enterprises show that a strategic, imperative-driven IT-OT investment plan generally is structured for a three to five year period.  Formalizing a strategic plan ensures that executive leadership is fully aligned with the investment needed.  The strength of the strategic plan is through agreements between the business leadership and the IT-OT organizations.

 

Through dozens of successful plan and execution, Mike found that “gap analysis” is a key component of the plan, since that will reveal the current state versus the future IT-OT vision.  Once the gap analysis reveals the funding requirements and the financial incentives, the plan typically includes:

  • What IT/OT functional capabilities will be delivered against which business objectives.
  • Identifies the timing of delivery and any dependencies
  • Clearly articulates the value proposition of each deliverable
  • Defines any organizational change required

How to start an IT-OT investment planHow to Start a Strategic IT-OT Investment Plan

 

Corporate IT executives need to understand OT issues too!

Strategic IT-OT investment plans have the best chance of success, if corporate executives are involved in the early stages of the plan development.  IT executives need to know what is happening at the OT level, and OT management need to understand how the business IT structure works and interacts with the OT.  Often a simple step of having IT management visit an operating plant to see how OT impacts the ability to keep the plant operating and producing product can have a significant impact on the resulting strategic plan.

Where operating assets are the result of mergers and acquisitions, it is important to make sure you understand how the acquired facility works before implementing change.  As part of the analysis, understanding the timing of change, as well as the change itself is important to ensure that the it doesn’t disrupt the plant operation.

ARC consultants can help to facilitate the creation of a Strategic IT-OT Investment Plan.  The assistance you need may be as simple as helping you organize your first strategic meetings, or as seemingly complex as assessing your production assets to determine the opportunity value that could be created with the correct changes – both in terms of the “what” to change as well as “when” to change.

Google Play Instant

Posted by rachana racchu Apr 27, 2018

Google Play - the Android app store – recently launched a Google Play Instant feature for users to try out new games and apps. This allow users to try out a game without downloading it. Users can test the app by tapping on “Try now” available on the Play store page. In this case, users are allowed to access and experience a portion of the full game that help them in deciding whether to download the game or not. One can now check out the game video trailers and list of top games as well as new games using tags like “New” or “Action” to find particular type of game using ‘Arcade’ tab available in the new version of Google Play Game. This section also introduces sections for paid games (“Premium”) and another for upcoming and trending games (“New”). It also features “live operations” banners and cards which alerts users if they have already installed it.

 

Google Play Instant feature have allowed gamers to play certain games without clearing the storage space to try new games. This feature is still in Beta. Users can try handful of games in the Google Play Store. Here is the list of games supported at the Instant gameplay page.

  •       Clash Royale

 

  •        Words with Friends 2

 

  •        Bubble Witch 3 Saga

 

  •        Final Fantasy XV: A New Empire

 

  •        Solitaire

 

  •        Mighty Battles

 

The experience may vary from game to game. For instance, game Final Fantasy XV: A New Empire display a quick video that lasts a few seconds whereas Bubble Witch 3 Saga provides few full levels. Users can install the game or can simply exit after trying it. A small collection of Instant Apps are available now, including those from BuzzFeed, NYTimes (Crossword), Hollar, Skyscanner and others. Google Play Instant will rise up much faster when compared to Instant apps, which take very long time to be available to developers from the time of announcement.  Google Play Instant experiences are available in the Google Play Store, the Google Play Games app or wherever the games links are shared. The Google has also created an ‘Instant Gameplay collection’ where users can check the ‘Google Play Instant’ experience.

 

Google Instant happens quickly without any major delays. Google have also expanded its Google Maps APIs for developers, who build AR and VR games, and also to promote their games with payable in-game advertisements in the other games that have already been sold at Google Play Store. Instant apps will include a link to download the app at the top of the screen. Users can share the app and they will be able to launch directly into that section of the app if they haven’t installed it previously.

 

Google Play Instant feature will result in helping users by saving the data costs as they will not download the entire game. This also boosts the quality games and apps as users can easily judge the quality of the experience. FuGenX is a leading company in the area of game development in UAE. FuGenX developed 100+ top-notch mobile games on various genres like sports, racing, adventurous, puzzle, action, board, fighting and shooting.

Overview

Rapid growth in IoT, analytics, and Big Data have dramatically changed the operations and asset management strategies of the rail transit industry.  Predictive technologies are now driving process improvement, asset performance, and operations and maintenance services, contributing to better return on investments and increased railway safety. Digitization also brings substantial benefits in operational efficiency, reliability, and enhanced passenger experience.

However, the rail industry still faces challenges.  These include increasing competition from other modes of transport, the massive costs of maintaining railway operations, and cybersecurity challenges related to digitization. Digitization inevitably increases the vulnerability to cyber and malware attacks. With rail networks growing and becoming increasingly automated, it’s imperative that railway cybersecurity technologies keep up with evolving attacks on the digital system.

Cybersecurity In Rail Industry Growing in Importance

Transportation networks have been transitioning towards digitization.  New digital applications include                 information and communication systems, Cybersecurity In Rail Industry Rail%20Cybersecurity.jpgtracking

and monitoring the performance of assets, revenue management systems, traffic optimization, and signaling and control systems.  The growing dependence on connected and online devices increases the risks of any disruption to operations.

Rail’s digital infrastructure comprises several complex and interconnected layers of technology platforms, communication technologies, and decentralized asset management functionality. As the complexity increases exposure to cyber threats, the rail operators and technology managers must take appropriate steps to ensure the security of the assets and passengers.

In addition, moving away from modified standalone systems to open-platform, standardizing equipment built using commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) components, and increasing use of networked control and automation systems that can be accessed remotely via public and private networks has further increased vulnerability to cyber attacks.
