Arculix | November 21, 2022
SecureAuth, a leader in access management and authentication, today announced its Arculix Universal Authentication Fabric to further strengthen the technology to enable organizations for passwordless continuous authentication. Arculix Universal Authentication Fabric is a technology framework that delivers authentication driven by AI/ML behavioral modeling, continuous risk scoring and eliminates logging in making passwords obsolete. For users, it’s a one-and-done event for accessing their relevant apps, VDI or SSO. For companies, it’s a robust authentication with continuous authentication in the background without any friction to the user.
“Historically, a single source to define and administer policy and processes for all users has been absent, Fraud, credential stuffing and attacks will continue to evolve as bad actors thwart existing security approaches. SecureAuth’s Universal Authentication Fabric delivers the first risk-based analytics approach as a consolidated backbone for continuous, multi-factor, and passwordless authentication with the highest level of security as well as a frictionless experience for users.”
Paul Trulove, CEO of SecureAuth
Between authenticating to the workstation, an SSO portal or federated web apps, VDIs, VPN, and PAM solutions, the typical user authenticates 16 times a day using three different sets of username and password. This is simultaneously insecure and a poor user experience. With Arculix Universal Authentication Fabric, users can login once and securely access the applications needed to do their job. Arculix Universal Authentication Fabric allows users to attain a level of assurance needed to authenticate with its patented behavioral AI/ML risk analytics engine. To ensure there is no account takeover (ATO), it generates a score at the beginning of a user logging in that is used to grant access to web apps, servers and services without requiring another factor check. This removes the need for siloed systems to authenticate users.
“SecureAuth’s Arculix Universal Authentication Fabric is the underlying element for the new 360-degree cybersecurity perimeter that every enterprise needs: Continuous, Holistic and Adaptive,” said Alfredo Estirado, CEO of Grupo TRC. “As a key partner of SecureAuth, we are excited to offer this to our customers across various geographies.”
Key capabilities include expansion of passwordless features into endpoints, including access to persistent and non-persistent VDIs, in the same passwordless way a user authenticates to a standard machine. This enables a passwordless authentication journey whether in or out of the office. This Universal Authentication Fabric also supports our device trust support for seamless passwordless authentication for transient virtual desktops and physical desktops.

Gcore | January 19, 2023
Gcore, a European company that makes high-performance, low-latency, international cloud and edge solutions, has released Gcore Basic, a low-cost solution made for webmasters, developers, and people who do things for fun. Webmasters, developers, and hobbyists can use Gcore Basic to access a wide range of services and features that are designed to make their applications run as well as possible.
Gcore Basic, which starts at €5 per month, provides a compute instance on a shared virtual machine for running light web servers and microservices. It includes free DDoS protection and can be deployed in just a few minutes. Gcore Basic includes several add-ons, such as managed databases, object storage, and security services.
Director of Edge Cloud Stream at Gcore, Seva Vayner, commented, "Gcore Basic brings low-latency, high-performance computing within reach of everyone." They added, "From €5 per month, Gcore Basic is a place where aspiring programmers can learn their craft, where developers can run pet projects, proof of concepts, and test environments; and where aspiring entrepreneurs can build out online services." Seva Vayner said, "With Gcore Basic running on our cloud infrastructure, customers can scale up and deploy additional services as and when required—for instance, adding extra resources to handle significant leaps in traffic."
It will first launch Gcore Basic at its Amsterdam location. The service will soon be available in the United States, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Frankfurt, giving Gcore a second location in Europe. By making Gcore Basic available in more than one place, customers can put their services closer to their customers, which will speed things up and cut down on latency.
Gcore is a company that helps provide powerful edge and cloud solutions for the media and entertainment industries. They are headquartered in Luxembourg and have offices in several other countries, including Germany, Poland, Lithuania, Cyprus, and Georgia. It works for clients such as government agencies, TEDx, Wargaming, and Avast. They have a large global IT infrastructure spread across six continents and is made up of over 150 points of presence in reliable data centers.
