In the field of information security, sandboxes are used to isolate an insecure external environment from a secure internal environment (or vice versa), to protect against the exploitation of vulnerabilities, and to analyze malicious code.

At Kaspersky Lab, we have several sandboxes, we will look at just one of them that was customized to serve the needs of a specific product and became the basis of Kaspersky Anti Targeted Attack Platform.

Vacations are over, school is about to start, and people are starting to think about what to do in the four months until the end of the year.
In IT, that means driving success in the cloud.Many IT manages have been incentivized with impending deadlines for shutting down enterprise data centers, migrating applications, and converting data from the enterprise to the cloud data conversion projects.
Itrsquo;s all a bit overwhelming.

But there are two things you must do before 2017 is over.[ What is cloud computing? Everything you need to know now. | Also: InfoWorldrsquo;s David Linthicum explains what exactly is edge computing. ]1.

Think securitymdash;yes, again When considering the public cloud, security should be systemic to everything you do.

This includes when encryption, key management, and the use of identities. However, most enterprises moving to cloud have no real definition of their security strategy, not to mention policies or the selection of enabling technology.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
In my last article, I discussed threats that wreak havoc on data centers and why even relatively simple attacks can cause loads of issues for companies.

Today, the threats that organizations face are only increasing in severity and frequency.

During the first few months of 2017, mobile ransomware rose over 250 percent according to Kaspersky Lab. Just last week, GoldenEye, the new strain of the Petya ransomware, took the world by storm.These examples are proof that attacks are getting smarter, enterprises are leaving themselves vulnerable and threat actors are doing more damage than goodmdash;at least in some instances.
Itrsquo;s time to challenge conventional wisdom.

The traditional VM environment and reactive tactics, where anything on the VM requires constant monitoring, isnrsquo;t working anymore.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
At last itrsquo;s here: After a prolonged gestation with three public previews, Microsoft has announced the release of Azure Stack. You can download the free Azure Stack Development Kit now.

Complete hardware and software solutions will ship in the next couple of months, when Microsoft completes certification.Bringing the public cloud to on-premises data centers was always going to be a big task, and Microsoft wonrsquo;t be delivering the entirety of Azure in this initial release.
In fact, donrsquo;t expect to ever see all of Azure in Azure Stack, as there are plenty of Azure features that rely on the scale of cloud.

That said, there is more than enough to start with, with support for core Azure IaaS and PaaS features. Other optional elements include Azurersquo;s App Service and its serverless Functions.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

Guess what? Itrsquo;s not CIO or other leaders who are calling in the cloud consultants these days.
Itrsquo;s the CFOs who are picking up the phone. Thatrsquo;s logical if you think about it.

CFOs are charged with keeping the company financially healthy.

They are not happy about most IT expenses, and they have a deep-seated belief that IT is spending more money than it needs to.
So, the concept of cloud computing seems to be a hammer that the CFO can use to beat IT into being much more efficient. [ Working with data in the cloud requires new thinking.
InfoWorld shows you the way: How Cosmos DB ensures data consistency in the global cloud. | Stay up on the cloud with InfoWorld's Cloud Computing Report newsletter. ]
Although CIOs love to complain about the CFOrsquo;s constant harping over expenses, the reality is that IT got its way for a long time.
Indeed, many CEOs have confided in me that they felt that their IT shop was holding them hostage.
Irsquo;ve heard stories about IT stopping mergers due to that amount of work needed to integrate the systems.

And about building new data centers about every five years to deal with the growing need for data storage that reduces earnings per share, and causes CEOs some tense times at shareholder meetings.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
