Milton Security Provides Stopgap For Windows XP Endpoints

FULLERTON, Calif., April 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Milton Security Group announces a special solution for those customers who have not migrated away from Windows XP.  With the Microsoft Windows XP end of life just hours away from now, organizations need to prepare and mitigate.  For those organizations, moving away from Windows XP can be a long process, but with the Edge7200i security appliance, they can mitigate their risks, and plan for the future.

Microsoft will end support for Windows XP on April 8th.  For organizations still running systems on XP, this means that their machines, and therefore their networks, will be increasingly vulnerable to all manner of cyber attacks.  This spells disaster for many organizations that simply cannot afford to replace every XP device on their network.  From large public utilities and government agencies, to small businesses, the risk from Windows XP is still pervasive, and will be a large issue if not contained.

Starting from $1999.00 the Windows XP Special Mitigation package can reduce the overall risk brought about by continuing to run Windows XP in critical organizations.

James McMurry stated, "There is likely to be a number of 0-day security flaws released soon after April 8th.  These flaws will never be patched and business owners will need a way to reduce their exposure from this potential oncoming storm."  Milton Security offers an appliance that will mitigate the oncoming storm.

Milton Security's Edge7200i provides identity-based access to your network.  The Edge can report on what systems are still running XP as well as control the types of traffic coming to and from those XP machine.  This gives the Edge the ability to stop possible threats from ever even touching that XP machine.  

Milton Security encourages companies who have not already replaced Windows XP to begin working on upgrading their systems as soon as possible.  These systems will continue to be a growing security risk as the outdated operating system will not gain any more patches as the rest of the world moves on.  However, using an Edge7200i will buy more time with a mitigated and smaller security hole footprint.

Call Milton Security Group to mitigate the risk from Windows XP, and many other threats, including 0-days.

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Video experiences should be unique and exciting! But that doesn’t mean you need to patch all the pieces yourself. Users demand rich and engaging experiences and new ways to connect with you.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs.

In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
