VOILA's global presence allows members to earn and redeem points across a wide variety of hotels and redemption partners in the VOILA global network. A selection of VOILA's current redemption partners include airline programs such as Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan, TrueBlue by JetBlue, Virgin America Elevate Program, Flying Blue (Air France / KLM), Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards, Virgin Atlantic flyingclub, EarlyReturns Hawaiian Miles, LifeMiles, Iceland Air Saga Club, and US Airways Dividend Miles; retail partners such as Amazon.com, American Express, Multiplus Fidelidade, Smiles, Mango, iTunes, Emaar, iFly Dubai, Ski Dubai, and Thanks Again; and charitable causes such as Kula, Worldreader.org, and Kiva.

We do it often without even thinking about it, quickly entering our personal information, our data, in a plethora of systems. Sometimes we’re not even aware of the information we are providing. It could be very personal information (think of the security questions you ...

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
