VMware_Launches_Program
VMware, Inc (NYSE:VMW), a leading innovator in enterprise software today launched VMware Aurora, a program that aims to empower persons with disabilities with the digital skills needed in today's digital workforce. The program will provide free training with a diverse set of courses and learning materials in digital and sales skills ranging from computer security and internet safety to customer relationship management, to help persons with disabilities to upskill and increase their employability in today's digital workforce.

VMware Aurora marks VMware's regional commitment to support persons with disabilities. Outside of its global initiatives, Aurora is currently catered for Singapore, with plans to expand to other countries in Asia Pacific and Japan. Working closely with various industry partners in the ecosystem such as SG Enable, Temasek Polytechnic, Singapore Association of the Visually Handicapped, Tomowork, Up 2 Speed and LinkedIn, the programme aims to equip 1,000 persons with disabilities with both business and technical skills for the future economy. The self-paced courses are delivered online via a combination of VMware curated courses and LinkedIn courses, and will provide individuals with digital and sales skills of varying capability levels from one to five.  Individuals will be awarded certifications that indicate course completion after successfully completing each level and undergoing its relevant assessments.

"Our vision of building a more equitable, sustainable and secure future for our region is rooted in creating equal opportunities for everyone. To create a truly inclusive economy, it is fundamental to equip persons with disabilities with the right skills so that they too are future-ready and remain employable in IT and broader industries. We believe that technology can level the playing field for persons with disabilities and enable them to reap benefits in a digital future. The digital economy offers many opportunities and benefits and with the right skills and knowledge, we hope to empower persons with disabilities to better their lives and drive them towards greater success with their unique skillsets."

Craig Dobson, VMware's Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Lead, Asia Pacific and Japan, and Vice President of Professional Services.


According to UNESCAP, there is an estimated 472 million working-age persons with disabilities in Asia Pacific and Japan. This highlights the importance for individuals to upskill themselves with digital skills so that they have an opportunity to participate in the technology industry and bridge the talent gap. The program will be made available to those with disabilities who are citizens or permanent residents residing in Singapore aged 17 and above who have completed a secondary level of formal education or who are graduating students of a local Polytechnic or Institute of Technical Education (ITE) and have a keen interest in learning or working in the tech industry.

The launch of VMware Aurora builds on VMware's commitment to build disability inclusion into its agenda by creating a more inclusive workplace for those with disabilities and deepening its understanding of disability inclusion. Over the past two years, VMware kicked off multiple global inclusion initiatives which includes its first-ever Accessibility Week with a summit followed by an accessibility hackathon across five countries and six business units resulting in the development of ten concepts that tackle the challenges persons with disabilities face. VMware also launched a Disability Power of Difference (POD) community to roll out a series of awareness-building learning courses.

NordVPN enters the antivirus market by launching Threat Protection

NordVPN | February 11, 2022

NordVPN, the world's leading VPN service provider, took yet another step to solidify its position as a market leader in cybersecurity with the release of Threat Protection, which is integrated into the NordVPN app. This new feature offers comprehensive security against cyber threats by blocking trackers, phishing attempts, intrusive ads, malicious websites, and infected files. At Nord Security, we know that cybersecurity evolves rapidly, and cybersecurity tools must evolve too. And as part of a broader effort to shift into a more encompassing cybersecurity company, introducing Threat Protection brings us one step closer. With the introduction of Threat Protection, we will be able to offer more services and more comprehensive protection that doesn't depend merely on your VPN connection." Vykintas Maknickas, product strategist at NordVPN Threat Protection mitigates three primary kinds of threats. These include web trackers and malicious ads, harmful websites, and infected files. Web trackers and malicious ads. Fighting off trackers typically falls outside of the scope of a VPN, which is where Threat Protection comes into play. Threat Protection enhances the whole web privacy experience by blocking trackers entirely. You can monitor and manage the blocked trackers in real time. Harmful websites. Also use Threat Protection while browsing the web to avoid malicious websites. Threat Protection displays a warning prompt prior to the page loading. This allows you to exit in lieu of continuing to a harmful site and being phished or having your data collected. Infected files. Additionally, when you download a file from the internet, Threat Protection can be the first line of defense. It will scan for malware and, if no threats are detected, the file will be marked as safe without any interruptions. But if malware is found, the file will be deleted before it can do any harm. You will also be able to access a log of the scanned files available to view at any time. "Threat Protection takes what was once the task of antivirus software and merges it with NordVPN," says Vykintas Maknickas, product strategist at NordVPN. "Regardless of how long you have been using the internet, you can end up falling victim to some kind of precarious website or download. This is exactly why Threat Protection was introduced — to add a layer of security to make your online browsing safer, cleaner, and more private." To utilize Threat Protection, users need to download the latest OpenVPN version of the NordVPN app from the official website. Once enabled, the feature will protect users without them needing to connect to a VPN server. Threat Protection is currently available for all macOS users and is being gradually rolled out for Windows. NordVPN is part of Nord Security. Nord Security is moving with confidence towards becoming an all-around cybersecurity solution. Apart from NordVPN, the company is home to three other market-leading products: NordPass, a next-generation password manager; NordLocker, an encrypted cloud storage solution; and NordLayer, an advanced network access security solution.
