Data Center Fabric in our data-driven world.

In our data-driven world, data are the most critical asset to understand, correlate, save and to protect. Henceforth enterprises and a set of growing organizations are progressively aware of this opportunity.
In this dynamic, Data center fabric is henceforth billed as an appropriate solution that reduces the data center network infrastructure costs of enterprises. The major challenges that this technology faces is the threat to network security.
According to Research and Markets one key trend upcoming in this market is the decrease in network latency, and Cloud-based solutions provide an opportunity for businesses to operate over the internet, where very low network latency is essential. 
Its recent report states that the Data Center Fabric market in the US is predominantly driven by the need for cost-effective infrastructure. Key actors include: Alcatel Lucent Brocade Communications Systems Cisco Systems Dell Extreme Networks Hewlett-Packard Other Prominent Vendors Arista Networks Avaya…

Mobile multi-factor authentication software and service: technologies, trends, stakes, vendors,

When it comes to authenticate user identity, it is henceforth clear that, Username and Passwords have fail to provide adequate authentication and that, authentication-based attacks continue to juggle organizations of all sizes with the majority of breaches being attributed to weak or absent authentication. observes that, this reality has created significant market demand for mobile user authentication technologies that can be used to provide additional factor of authentication.
A set of growing enterprises and organizations including Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Twitter, and Apple are already using two-factor authentication (2FA).
According to ABI ResearchOne-time-passwords (OTPs) and tokens have emerged as the preferred choice of authentication as they offer greater security because the password they generate is only valid for a single session/transaction.
Digital certificates based on the concept of public/private key cryptography are also an effective authentication …

Protected against differential power analysis (DPA) and related attacks.

Connected devices invade progressively our homes for various raisons. From security needs to entertainment envies, the infatuation is exciting. 
However, this growing momentum is impacted by a set of growing threats related to security, privacy and economical stakes. 

According to Paul Kocher, president and chief scientist of the Rambus Cryptography Research division, ''it becomes easier to mount attacks using DPA. Growing threats are impacting the content distribution market''.

Based on this reality, Cryptography Research Division and MStar, (a semiconductor company for display and digital home solutions), have signed a license agreement for the inclusion of advanced DPA countermeasure technologies developed by Cryptography Research in MStar products. can observe that, by incorporating these patented technologies, MStar’s tamper-resistant products, including set-top box chipsets, can be protected against differential power analysis (DPA) and related at…
