TurnKey Internet, Inc. Releases Their TurnKey Desk 2.0 Cloud-Hosted Desktop

Latham, New York (PRWEB) August 20, 2013

Sustainable IT solutions provider TurnKey Internet, Inc. announced today the re-release of their cloud-hosted virtual desktop, the TurnKey Desk 2.0. With all new, easy-to-use features, the TurnKey Desk is now available on any smartphone, tablet, thin client, desktop PC or Mac. The platform is made easier to access, and can be preloaded with many more applications useful for individuals and businesses. Applications such as Microsoft Office and the Adobe Creative Suite or any customizable business applications needed, can be installed to the virtual desktop.

By incorporating smartphones and tablets, the way a client can use the TurnKey Desk is almost limitless, CEO, Adam Wills said. Both start-up entrepreneurs and experienced CEOs need a way to be able to easily work from their home, office, or while they are traveling. The TurnKey Desk allows this. Our virtual desktop provides security for any sized business to be confident that their information will always be safe and accessible in our SSAE-16 Type 2 certified data center.

The TurnKey Desk can be used for companies where hundreds of employees are able to share files and documents with each other, be it down the hall, across the country or around the globe. Files can be accessed, shared and stored securely on the cloud to help make sharing documents easier and more efficient. The new platform allows for the option to have multiple images for various departments of an organization. These images contain the software applications specific for each department which can all be preset with permission levels for each user.

Hosted Virtual Desktop market share is increasing every day. One of the reasons why, is the ability to replace aging office Desktop PC networks with Virtual Desktops accessed from thin clients, Wills stated. Thin clients cost far less than PCs with less moving parts and need for maintenance. Since thin clients are only being used to access the virtual desktops, there are almost no IT related costs for your internal network once it is setup. Additionally, this improves your overall network security from our New York data center and decreases your overall costs.

Port80 Software Releases ServerDefender VP Web Application Firewall for Amazon Web Services


San Diego, CA (PRWEB) August 22, 2013

Port80 Software’s launch marks the first Web application firewall built for Windows Servers on AWS. The advanced ServerDefender VP Web application firewall comes on Windows Server 2008 and 2012 instances and is available to launch from the AWS Marketplace. This advancement provides a more secure way to host apps on Microsoft IIS in the cloud.

ServerDefender VPs availability on AWS addresses security concerns when using cloud hosting for sites and applications. Unlike traditional hardware Web application firewalls, ServerDefender VP is a host-based software Web application firewall. This makes it ideal for installation directly on a cloud instance to analyze traffic before requests can hit a site. As a Web application firewall, ServerDefender VP can help address PCI-DSS compliance and HIPAA compliance.

Port80 Software has been building security software for Microsoft IIS since 2002. Its portfolio of Web security products include ServerDefender VP, ServerMask, and LinkDeny.

KEY SECURITY FEATURES

Advanced Security Policy – ServerDefender VP does not rely on a list of attack signatures to identify and block attacks. Rather, it uses rules-based policies and a combination of black and white lists to detect and stop known and unknown zero day threats.

Configurable Security Settings – Granular controls allow for a highly-customizable security profile. ServerDefender VP provides protection from the OWASP Top 10 Web Threats, as well as controls for input validation, IP blocking, error throttling, bot policy, resource management, and more.

Traffic monitoring and interrogation – Monitors all requests and interrogates them for malicious activity. ServerDefender VPs sessionization tracks and scores users behavior as they traverse the site. Serious offenses are weighted more heavily than less serious offenses.

Interactive Log Viewer – The LogViewer is the monitoring hub for investigating, taking action against, and visualizing threats hitting your site. With the LogViewer tool, users can easily sort, filter, and interact with threats in real-time to determine their authenticity and block IPs to prevent further attacks, or create exceptions to allow legitimate users to pass.

REQUIREMENTS & LICENSING

ServerDefender VP Web application firewall for AWS is currently available with Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2012 on any EC2 instance type. More information on requirements can be found here. Licensing for the software will be $ .30/hour across all EC2 instance types.

ABOUT PORT80 SOFTWARE

Founded in 2002, Port80 Software develops tools to enhance performance and security for Microsoft IIS servers. Port80’s advanced, yet user-friendly products aim to help system administrators, IT professionals, and information security professionals achieve their Web security and performance goals and requisite compliance. Port80’s compression and caching tools httpZip, CacheRight, and ZipEnable allow users to unlock their sites potential by improving performance. through rules based software technology. Port80’s Web security tools provide anti-leaching, server anonymization, and Web application protection.







CloudTalk Radio Releases Podcast Discussing the Effectiveness of Video Production in Marketing Campaigns


Everett, WA (PRWEB) July 07, 2014

Robert Chandler and Keith Eneix of CloudTalk Radio recently released a podcast in which they interview Daniel A. Cardenas, Founder and Creative Director of Sierra Media, a video production company based out of Everett, WA.

The topic of discussion is why and how a company can develop and express their authentic voice in order to impact the people theyre trying to reach with their marketing message.

Listen to the CloudTalk Radio podcast with Daniel A. Cardenas of Sierra Media by visiting CloudTalk Radio (http://www.cloudtalkradio.com)

During the CloudTalk Radio, Cardenas places a unique emphasis on portraying a companys authentic voice through creative video productions. Cardenas explains that, Finding your authentic voice means digging in and figuring out who, what and why your business is doing what it is doing and communicating it concisely to your audience so they connect with it.

After this interview, Keith Eneix, CEO of Fannit, comments, Im wondering how many businesses truly understand their authentic voice a critical aspect of marketing their company.

Cardenas stresses that a company has to understand the heart behind their business and why it was founded in the first place in order to begin to shape the tone of their authentic voice. This tone should come out through your web site, videos and even the experience people have when they connect with your business.

Once a company is able to hone in on what their voice sounds like (from a customer perspective), they have the ability to really distinguish themselves and sound and appear unique when compared to the next guy.

Mr. Eneix concludes by saying, Im so fortunate to be around brands like Sierra Media. We hope you find CloudTalk Radios interview with Daniel A. Cardenas helpful.

Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) August 14, 2013

Jelastic Inc., the creators of the only zero-code-change cloud hosting platform for Java and PHP applications (http://Jelastic.com), today announced that a new version 1.9.2 of their platform is available.

Jelastics fundamentally new approach to Java and PHP hosting means that there is no need to learn custom systems or recode applications in order to deploy. Jelastic is the only PaaS that can run any Java or PHP app with NO limitations or code changes required, and is the only PaaS available through multiple hosting providers, worldwide.

Jelastic 1.9.1 was released in May 2013 and the team has been working hard to deliver these new features and improvements which include:


GIT & SVN Auto-deploy: Jelastic users can set immediate or periodical automatic deployment of their projects based on the changes they have committed via GIT/SVN repository and greatly increase their productivity.
PHP 5.5: In addition to versions 5.3 and 5.4, PHP enthusiasts can now enjoy working with the newest version of PHP and benefit from all of its robust features. Users can change the version of the stack that they are using with a simple selection from the drop-down list.
FTP and FTPS access to database servers: Jelastic has been providing FTP/FTPS access to application servers for a long time. Now this feature has been expanded to all database servers. Users get an easy and reliable way of file sharing and data transfer to and from their database servers in their Jelastic environments, including local backup files.
Scheduling MongoDB Database Backups: Now Jelastic users can schedule not only MySQL and MariaDB backups, but also MongoDB ones with just a few clicks.
Ability to change GC, -Xmx, -Xms: This update gives a user the ability to configure memory settings and set custom parameters for their Java container.
Ability to deploy PHP projects from GIT repository with submodules/dependencies added: Select the project you need and get everything else retrieved and deployed automatically.
Ability to assign an internal IP to VDS components: Jelastic VDS is a full-root-access virtual private server that customers can use for any extra components that their applications might need such as back end servers, console applications, email servers and backup servers. Now users have the ability to assign such servers not only publicly but also with private IP addresses.
Search box: Users can use this search box right from the dashboard to get the answers to the questions they are most interested in.

Jelastic is the only platform-as-a-service that has been designed for web hosting companies and is already being offered by the best providers in 11 countries around the globe.

In this release, we have implemented so many of the requested features and changes. Some highlights include GIT & SVN Auto-deploy, FTP and FTPS access to database servers, scheduling MongoDB backups, a handy search box and loads more. We are really excited to see how much more productive users can be on our cloud platform.”

As such, Jelastic always takes the needs of web hosting providers into account and the 1.9.2 release is no exception:

Jelastic Cluster Admin, the back end administration tool for hosters, was improved dramatically. Email localization, different groups creation, auto recharge option and application packaging management features simplify provider-side work.
Hosting providers can set bonus percentages for their users from the first payment if they convert and replenish the account during a specified time.
High availability of the system was increased by using multiple resolvers, which receive requests simultaneously.
Billing and SSO integration. APIs have been improved to not only cover full integration for standard off-the-shelf billing systems but also home grown solutions.
Built-in integration for trial email campaigns.
Firewall for end users’ containers help to prevent unauthorized SSH access and to defend hosting providers data against various brute force or DDoS attacks, rootkits and botnets.

All major software stacks were updated and many supported features were improved in the Jelastic 1.9.2 release. Read more in the Jelastic 1.9.2 Release Notes.

Proxios Releases the Best Practices for Cloud Security in New White Paper

(PRWEB) April 03, 2014

Proxios released a new white paper that outlines the best practices for securing your IT infrastructure when moving to the cloud.

While the cloud offers significant business advantages, if it is not secured properly it can result in substantial damage. Thats why Proxios is helping organizations understand the best ways for the cloud provider and cloud service customer to maintain the highest level of security.

A cloud service provider should have numerous security layers in a cloud infrastructure including: Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS), Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS), virus and malware audits, full patching and audits, multiple firewalling layers, DMZs and more. Also, the datacenter itself should have multiple levels of physical security.

Each cloud customer should implement security precautions from each endpoint device. A structured security training program for each individual business can help address social engineering threats, which are elaborate tricks used to gain access to a companys systems.

To learn how Proxios helps maintain the highest level of security in the cloud, read the Securing the Proxios Cloud whitepaper

Armor for Android Releases Ensuring Privacy in a World of Cloud Technology


(PRWEB) March 03, 2014

Cloud computing may seem like a shiny new technology but the concept has been around since the early days of computers. Using modern cloud services we can access our data from anywhere in the world from any internet capable machine. Since cloud data is stored on remote servers we no longer have to worry about dropping a device in water and washing away all of our data in one heart wrenching moment. At last, our technological savior has arrived! But wait, does this divine technology come at a price?

Neither the cloud’s advanced age nor its potential benefits provide comfort with regard to privacy. It feels quite natural when asked to hand over one’s entire digital life, including all one’s confidential information, to respond with an audible, “You’re out of your bleeping mind!” We certainly wouldn’t ask a stranger to hold a briefcase filled with our life’s savings, would we? Oh wait, we do ask strangers to hold our life savings, and in some cases they’ve done a very poor job of it. Perhaps banks and stock brokers are partly to blame for our distrust of the cloud. Or perhaps the natural reaction to any significant innovation is to resist.

Banks and Cloud service share a common abstract concept. Both are a single repository of collective wealth; in the case of banks the wealth is money and valuables, and for cloud services it is sensitive personal information. I have no trouble believing that the first banks were met with much the same skepticism as cloud services. I imagine old men laughing at the fools who pile their wealth high and make theft more alluring to criminals.

NetHosting Releases Case Study on Book Recommendation Site Goodreads


Orem, UT (PRWEB) April 22, 2013

NetHosting, a leading dedicated hosting, cloud hosting, and virtual hosting provider, recently published a case study on the popular website for readers and book recommendations, Goodreads.

Software engineer Otis Chandler and writer Elizabeth Chandler, his wife, began building Goodreads in their living room. They launched in early 2007, and grew to over 650,000 members by the end of the year. The site currently boasts over 16 million members, and owns the distinction as the worlds largest site of its kind.

Goodreads main purpose is to help readers find books they want to read. They do this in a variety of ways, including a social element where you can view what your friends are reading and recommending. In 2011, Goodreads acquired Discovereads, a book recommendation engine that quickly became a core feature of the site. After a user rates 20 books on their 5-star scale, the engine then recommends books based on the books already read, books listed as to read, or by genre.

Goodreads has fast become one of the more popular social sharing sites on the web. We were interested in making them the subject of a case study because theyve built a business that succeeds on every level, comments NetHosting CEO Lane Livingston. Not only is their site every bookworms dream, but their ability to create a very social atmosphere is an enviable model for every online business.

In addition to analyzing book recommendation sites, NetHosting has also performed case studies on electronics e-retailer Newegg, luxury fashion site ideeli, and Internet e-retailer giant Woot.

Fpweb.net Releases New eBook That Examines What is Leading IT to the Cloud

St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) November 18, 2013

Fpweb.net, a global SharePoint hosting provider, has developed a new eBook The Cloud or Bust: Why your competitions IT is leaving the nest for more agility in the cloud that pulls from some of the industrys biggest Cloud studies and creates an important resource for organizations that are having the cloud conversation right now. The core message is clear: if you are shrugging off the cloud right now, you are handicapping your business.

Fpweb.net examines three prominent cloud studies to shine a light on their findings:

Savviss IT Global Trends September 2013 report: http://www.savvis.com/sites/default/files/corp-savvis-global-it-leadership-report_0.pdf

North Bridges Future of Cloud Computing 2013 Survey: http://www.northbridge.com/2013-cloud-computing-survey

Gartners Private Cloud Matures, Hybrid Cloud is Next study:http://www.gartner.com/id=2585915

Each report captures the trends and business processes of hundreds of IT and C-level respondents. From there, Fpweb.net is able to show the rising popularity of the cloud and why more and more enterprises are moving their infrastructures there.

The IT decision makers and C-levels that are tasked with moving their companies forward are discovering that the cloud is not an all or nothing solution, said Fpweb.net President, Chris Schwab. The agility, scalability, cost savings and everything else you here about the cloud are now being proven with the case studies of organizations that adopted early. Businesses are discovering that they need to embrace this trend now because their competition has and its only a matter of time until they are left in the dust.

While the message may seem curt, its congruent with the reality businesses are facing. Businesses that have failed to look at cloud outsourcing are not receiving the same security, performance and availability of those who are, which may include their competition. With a hybrid cloud model that combines on-premises and cloud resources, there is a cloud solution to fit any business.
