Spectre, Meltdown, and Protecting Your Passwords

Protecting passwords from Spectre and Meltdown

Spectre and Meltdown belong to a category of vulnerabilities called “chip hacks.” These affect the processors of computers, phones, and tablets. Both hacks rely on the manipulation of processor operations in order to retrieve sensitive data. Spectre exploits a design flaw by tricking programs to perform unnecessary actions, potentially exposing confidential data. Meanwhile, Meltdown grabs information from the processor that ordinarily would not be accessible.

Please note that both of these hacks would require an actual malicious attempt by a hacker. Without the manipulation of the processor’s operations, private information, such as passwords, is relatively safe. However, if we’ve learned anything about security flaws, it’s that someone, somewhere, will make an attempt before a patch can be applied. The potential for your passwords to be exposed is real.

Five Ways Image-Based Backup is Better for Your Business

Image Based backup is better

An image-based backup preserves a copy of a machine’s operating system, including system state and application configurations, as well as the data associated with that machine.

The rapid pace of data generation requires a business to stay on top of their data protection strategy. Threats to data security seem to lurk at every turn. But what are the biggest threats to a company’s data?

How Your Data Backup Solution Can Improve Business Continuity

Your business continuity plan should include a data backup solution that allows you to mitigate the effects of data loss and time to recovery. Surprisingly, many businesses use a data backup solution that is inefficient and incomplete.
