Google Unveils Hybrid Cloud Platform Anthos
Word came from the Google Cloud Next ’19 developer conference on Tuesday of new possibilities for cloud migration with the reveal of a hybrid cloud platform called Anthos. Google made the announcement, which was also transmitted via live stream, that the platform could help organizations with their transformation plans, especially for enterprises straddling the fence between on-premise and the cloud. Today, most of the world’s enterprise computing still happens on premise,” Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google LLC, told the audience. “It hasn’t moved to the cloud yet because the path forward is daunting and full of difficult decisions.” The difficulties he outlined include organizations that try to “modernize in-place” without fully committing to the cloud. Enterprises might also discover that the different architectures they work with are not compatible when migrated. There is also a desire among organizations to avoid vendor lock-in, according to Pichai.

can overcome some of their biggest challenges. On top of creating a better approach to securing data centers through micro-segmentation, NSX is a platform that automates the delivery of other leading next-generation security solutions. The Power of Micro-segmentation Micro-segmentation has always been an option for data center security, but it’s traditionally been unfeasible because of sheer workload volume and cost. But with network virtualization from VMware NSX, it becomes a cost-effective reality that helps protect an organization against threats that get behind perimeter security.

Avast Bolsters Privacy Provisions in Avast One Portfolio

Avast | December 07, 2021

Avast, a global leader in digital security and privacy, announced the addition of several deep privacy features to Avast One, its recently launched all-in-one integrated service. Avast One is a personalized, comprehensive cross-platform protection delivering digital protection and privacy. Avast One is available in three different versions: Essential, the free service awarded 'Editor's Choice' by both PCMag and TechRadar, and premium services Avast One Individual and Avast One Family. Avast One Individual and Family Now includes new privacy features designed to protect people's personal information during everyday online activities. The four new features, available first in Avast One for Windows, are: Tracking Prevention - using Avast's patented anti-fingerprinting technology, it works by injecting fake information into the data that makes up a person's unique digital fingerprint. Every time a page is visited, Avast One injects fresh data, scrambling each user's digital fingerprint to prevent tracking through the digital fingerprint by making them appear to be a different user. Private Mode - this is an enhanced incognito mode that combines two privacy technologies that work together to deliver a true private browsing experience. With one click, Private Mode combines the VPN with Tracking Prevention. Once the user opens an incognito window in their browser, they are able to securely and privately browse without concerns of tracking through fingerprinting, saved website visits or visible IP address. Smart VPN - this automatically activates a private, encrypted session while a user is visiting banking websites or when connecting to public Wi-Fi to ensure their information stays safe and private. Kill Switch - this new feature activates when the VPN connection drops for any reason and immediately cuts the internet connection to prevent sensitive information being exposed. Avast One Essential Avast One Essential now includes the new Privacy Advisor feature which provides step-by-step guides for users on enhancing their privacy settings on popular websites like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Youtube, Reddit, Amazon, LinkedIn and Google. By helping to simplify this process, Avast puts the user back in control of who can see their data and how it is used. Privacy Advisor is also available in Avast One Individual and Family. In addition to the United States, United Kingdom, Canada and Australia, Avast One is now available in France, Germany, Switzerland, and Austria.
