Is Data on SSDs Truly Secured?

Researchers at the University of California at San Diego (UCSD) say data on SSDs is more difficult to erase than that on HDDs, in their study "Reliably Erasing Data From Flash-Based Solid State Drives."

The study tells how sanitising SSDs of data is a difficult task-- if not nearly impossible. Not even overwriting data several times ensures data erasure, as the researchers say they still recovered data on some products. As the paper says: "all single-file overwrite sanitization protocols failed: between 4% and 75% of the files' contents remained Read more...

The Next, Next Generation Firewall

Nir Zuk, Founder and CEO of Palo Alto Networks, lacks neither confidence nor wit. In only 18 months, Palo Alto already claims $100 million in bookings and 3000 users, including top corporations and governments. But Zuk’s larger claim is that Palo Alto Networks has "the world’s only next generation firewall."

Now the phrase “next generation firewall” has been bantered about for some time. Most industry observers expect firewalls and IPS (Intrusion Prevention System) to somehow consolidate into a single box to create the legendary next generation fire Read more...

Copiers' Security Time-Bomb

Since 2002 nearly every digital copier has a HDD-- one potentially full of highly-personal or sensitive data. 

As a copier scans documents, it stores a copy of that image in its memory. US company Digital Copier Security Inc. (DCSI) warns such copies remain in the HDD-- and easily retrievable if a hacker cracks the copier's encryption. Some machines even allow users to simply reprint anything on the printed job list. 

Many copiers also contain sensitive IT data-- email addresses, outgoing fax numbers, contact names, IP addresses and even secure logon Read more...

Secure Agreement for Non-PC Devices

Soon to be Intel subsidiary McAfee and Wind River (another Intel subsidiary) announce an agreement to develop security solutions for embedded and mobile non-PC devices at RSA Conference 2011.

The rapid growth in connectivity (or the "internet of things") creates ever-growing security vulnerabilties-- as seen recently in the recent Stuxnet attack on Siemens-based systems in Iran. 

McAfee estimates the number of connected devices will grow to 50bn by 2020, with growth coming from industrial control, energy management, automotive, national infrastructure, Read more...

Top Video Surveillance Industry Predictions

IMS Research shares the hottest video surveillance trends for the year ahead. Here we abridge their projections, but give you a link at the bottom of the article if you wish more depth.

1. City Surveillance Looks to Wireless Video

City surveillance (municipalities) happen to be the fastest growing vertical market for video surveillance (e.g., HikVision, a China-based video surveillance equipment manufacturer, has been appointed general contractor on an $800 million safe city project in China.) In other regions, such as the Middle East, wireless Read more...
