Kaspersky Lab Patents Virtual Machine Security

Kaspersky Lab Patents Virtual Machine Security | education | Scoop.it
Kaspersky Lab has patented a security architecture for virtual machines aimed at protecting virtual environments without hindering their performance.

Richard Platt's curator insight, June 15, 6:32 PM

Kaspersky already implements the Security Architecture for Virtual Machines technology in its Kaspersky Security for Virtualization | Light Agent product, a security solution for servers and virtual workstations in environments such as Microsoft Hyper-V, Citrix XenServer and VMware vSphere. Anti-malware is a key feature of the product, which provides deep scanning of system processes and memory, web control, application control and device control to keep malicious code out of the system, according to the company.

Virtual machines largely rely on security at other points in a network architecture for protection, but this technology is aimed at providing a platform for the security of the machines themselves that won’t hinder their ability to make networks operate more efficiently, said Matvey Voytov, Corporate Products Group manager at Kaspersky, in a press statement.  -  “This newly patented technology helps to reliably protect virtual environments without compromising their effectiveness,” he said in a press statement. “Moreover, this technology is currently the only truly specialized security tool for some virtualization platforms.”  (VMs are a benefit for network efficiency in that they use only the exact amount of RAM and CPU power that they need. However, if a typical cybersecurity solution is deployed to protect each VM, it would consume a substantial amount of computing power, defeating the purpose of this efficiency, according to Kaspersky.)

Steve Wozniak Says The IoT Is in 'Bubble Phase'

Richard Platt's curator insight, June 12, 2:51 PM

Wozniak isn’t the only one who thinks the IoT market might be getting ahead of itself. At Gigaom’s Structure Connect event last October, IBM Vice President of IoT Paul Brody said the market was in “a classic bubble phase,” and that most of the data being accumulated on these devices was “useless”.  The problem with claims that the “IoT bubble” could burst is that they sometimes clump too many categories of products together.   Some markets, such as smart homes and connected cars, could grow at a healthy rate. A recent Coldwell Banker Real Estate survey found that 64% of sales associates believed buyers were more interested in homes with smart features than they were two to five years ago. As for cars, a survey by Accenture found that only 6% of respondents were “not using, nor interested” in using connected navigation systems, and just 14% weren’t interested in using infotainment systems for entertainment. Meanwhile, the industrial IoT market — which helps companies automate tasks and analyze data — will likely keep growing because it cuts costs and boosts efficiency.

There is something about the human element that makes it all personal. After all, I don't think a machine can talk about personal experiences the same way that a human can, now can it?

Thanks to Craig Cardimon for finding this one. I agree with all of these, especially the last three which are the most common mistakes, EXCEPT for #5.  It IS pronounced "for-tay" because it's for the Italian word that means strong or strength. It's used in music all the time! So, it's being prounounced correctly in Italian when it's said as "for-tay". It's similar to the use of French word, passé (pronounced pass-ay). The problem that word is that accent marks on the final "e" of each word is often not used since American/English QWERTY keyboards don't have that letter readily available. .

I'm not sure if I totally agree with the author of this writer. While yes, I do like to think that I can write decent content, as a content strategist, I don't think of myself as a writer. Perhaps I think of myself more as an editor than a writer as a content strategist. While I do agree there has to be some foresight and deep thought into doing some copywriting, ultimately, a copy writer doesn't always know how to format and understand how the content impact depending on context. Copy writers write. Content strategists manipulate and re-orchestrate those words that copy writers write to become something more.  I don't know that I would ever consider myself a copywriter, even though I'm probably capable of it. Copy editor, maybe, but content strategy also involves the management of the content, and understanding the user strategy or user experience of how to use that content. Copy writing doesn't always include that.

What the Dalai Lama Taught Daniel Goleman About Emotional Intelligence

What the Dalai Lama Taught Daniel Goleman About Emotional Intelligence | education | Scoop.it

Two decades before Daniel Goleman first wrote about emotional intelligence in the pages of HBR, he met his holiness the 14th Dalai Lama at Amherst College, who mentioned to the young science journalist for the New York Times that he was interested in meeting with scientists. Thus began a long, rich friendship as Goleman became involved over the years in arranging a series of what he calls “extended dialogues” between the Buddhist spiritual leader and researchers in fields ranging from ecology to neuroscience. Over the next 30 years, as Goleman has pursued his own work as a psychologist and business thinker, he has come to see the Dalai Lama as a highly uncommon leader. And so he was understandably delighted when, on the occasion of his friend’s 80th birthday, he was asked to write a book describing the Dalai Lama’s compassionate approach to addressing the world’s most intractable problems.

    To be human is to connect to humanity and become a very active participant in creating possible solutions for world and community problems.

    The depth of the Dalai Lama's compassion for future generations 

and his vision of global collaboration touches the hearts of many people all over the world.

    Dalai Lama is an excellent role model for many.  He is a world citizen.  He is driven to research world problems in depth and able to communicate with people on all levels. He shows compassion for all.

He is able to reaches out his heart and hands to connect and help many at all levels. He shows no partiality.   How could we not appreciate,cherish him and follow his lead? Of course, we want to know much more about this man, Dalai Lama.  He arouses much curiosity of mind and heart.
