Bloor Research endorses Redgates data masking solution

Bloor Research endorses Redgates data masking solution
In its latest report, the independent research and analyst house, Bloor, identifies Redgate as an innovator in the test data management space, and states the software company is uniquely positioned in offering a solution to mid-market businesses as well as enterprises. One approach is to use synthetic data generation which, while it prevents sensitive information from reaching development environments, involves significant bottlenecks. Other methods like restoring from backups and data subsetting have been used but are unable to meet the demands of contemporary database development. Instead, many are choosing to combine data masking with data virtualization to provision realistic yet anonymized data quickly and efficiently. Secondly, alongside its data masking capability, SQL Provision uses Microsofts proven virtualization technology to creates database copies which are a fraction of the size of the original. This enables the copies, or clones, to be created in seconds, with the data in those copies automatically masked.

Mozilla Launches VPN Service, Makes Available on Windows and Android in 6 Countries

Mozilla | July 16, 2020

Mozilla’s VPN service has officially launched and is now available for Windows and Android in six countries worldwide, including the US, Canada, and the UK, the company announced today. The service is available for $4.99 a month, and, like other VPNs, it’s designed to make your web-browsing more private and secure. As part of the move, the service is being rebranded from Firefox Private Network to Mozilla VPN, a change that was announced last month. Mozilla argues that its VPN service has a couple of advantages over its many competitors. It says it should offer a faster browsing experience in many cases because it’s based on a protocol with less than a third of the lines of code of an average VPN service provider. The company is also banking on the reputation it’s built up with its privacy-focused browser, and it adds that it only collects the information it needs to run a service and doesn’t keep user data logs.

Edgecore Networks Launches the Work-from-Anywhere Solution to Facilitate the New Normal of Working Life

Edgecore Networks | December 22, 2021

Edgecore Networks, a leading provider of traditional and open network solutions for enterprises, data centers, and telecommunication service providers, announced the launch of the Work-from-Anywhere (WFA) solution to provide organizations a plug-and-play, secure, agile, reliable mechanism to deliver enterprise-grade services to their remote workers. The trend of making offices a place for collaboration has been going on for years, but the COVID-19 pandemic has shifted the dial. Social distancing requirements across the world have prompted thousands of companies and millions of employees to discover the benefits of a flexible work environment. This shift to remote work and hybrid workspace forces organizations to take a more systematic and strategic approach to connecting remote workers to applications and data. Traditional WAN connections over MPLS tend to be rigid, costly, and provide deployment connections that cannot easily adapt to today's dynamic networking needs. Edgecore's WFA solution includes feature-rich SD-WAN devices, the SDW-series, addressing those networking issues and provides robust, secure, adaptive network services on demand. WFA Solution Key Features Central Management Multiple options for central management:\ VM in x86 appliance based VM in cloud platform Edgecore ecCLOUD Administrator can monitor and auto-adjust remote networks with real-time feedback from premises and deploy pre-configured network paths to remote sites. Zero Touch Deployment Automated provisioning from central management with pre-configured network setup to edge devices without user intervention can improve reliability and minimize bring-up costs, while maintaining efficiency and flexibility on deployment. Adaptive WAN Selection The SDW-series provides parallel connections for load-balancing, failover, and traffic steering to ensure the high-quality and reliability of network connections. Container Management Containerized software that pushes container images to remote sites for consistent application performance and availability while reducing the connectivity cost. Remote VPN The remote worker can access the data center by PC VPN login with 4 simple steps, greatly reducing the remote office roll-out time. The future of work is work-from-anywhere. With Edgecore’s WFA solution, delivering an in-office experience to workers, wherever they are, isn’t a pipe dream. The flexibility and openness of the solution proactively prepares organizations for an ever-changing future.” TT Hsu, Vice President of Edgecore Networks About Edgecore Networks Edgecore Networks Corporation is a wholly owned subsidiary of Accton Technology Corporation, the leading networking ODM.

Cortavo Revolutionizes Virtual Private Server Performance With a Data Center Refresh

Cortavo | September 14, 2021

Cortavo™, a leading IT managed services provider (MSP), has undertaken a full-scale infrastructure refresh spanning May to July of 2021. Cortavo's Engineering Leads Peter Miles and Paul Coad partnered with Tom Lasswell, their Vice President of IT Operations for the project. This internal team completely upgraded the Cortavo data center hardware supporting their VPS cloud service and all their hosted customers. Normally, hardware and software refreshes represent a standard routine of continuous system hygiene required of all data centers, yet this refresh was far from the routine. The overhaul included new cabinets, robust servers, the latest Intel® CPUs, more RAM, better cabling and generous storage hardware. The refresh also consisted of a host software upgrade to the latest version of VMware and vCloud Director, widening their storage capacity to operate faster with plenty of extra capacity for growth and upgrading their internet connectivity. Cortavo's technology refresh marks the debut of Cortavo Cloud®, its VPS cloud hosting service offered to small and medium-sized businesses. This refresh fortifies system capacity to shoulder the demands of Cortavo's new suite of cloud services, stepping up user experience through several key benefits, including: Processing Speeds: the overhaul replaced the previous processors with the latest generation of Intel 3.1 GHz processers, thereby raising the clock speed for better user performance and experience. SD-WAN: new hardware appliances allow for redundant internet connection through a vast peering network with other major data centers spanning a secure tunnel. This tunnel connects through a powerful backbone beginning with a major local hub, producing a short communications pathway with increased speed, resulting in a better browsing and phone experience with no latency. Cortavo Cloud's new hosting offers a full, redundant internet connection leveraging two channels and two different carriers for enhanced speed by prioritizing channels of least resistance. Enhanced Storage: accompanying a recent enlargement of storage, all primary workloads run on solid-state drives while nearline storage for archive and retention resides on advanced Seagate® hard drive storage. vCloud Director: allows for multi-tenancy in a VMware® environment. This environment grants console entry to view the machine's admin panel as a typical administrator, thus offering an access level currently unavailable with other major cloud providers. System security scales with usage and multi-tenancy, and NSX-TTM Data Center adds a virtualization layer to the network providing another layer of software protection. "As many project participants have realized, this is not simply a routine refresh, but also an upgrade," Tom Lasswell stated. "With this new infrastructure in place, our Cortavo Cloud VPS customers and users should experience lightning-fast interactions, proceed with the confidence of heightened security and enjoy console access seldom granted with big cloud providers. This is a huge leap forward for our clients and they're going to feel the difference as they use our services." About Cortavo Cortavo is an all-inclusive MSP solution created by Aventis Systems. Based in Atlanta, GA, Cortavo provides all the hardware, software and cloud services necessary to address small businesses' technology needs and challenges at a predictable monthly cost. Cortavo manages technology expansion and supports thousands of small business employees throughout the Southeastern United States.
