BeyondTrust, the security industry's only provider of Context-Aware Security Intelligence, today announced the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) has chosen to extend their contract with BeyondTrust to provide critical vulnerability assessment and management solutions for the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD). The relationship between BeyondTrust (through the acquisition of eEye Digital Security) and the DoD dates back to 2004 and provides coverage for every networked asset across all branches of the US Armed Services including the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard.

This contract extension allows BeyondTrust to continue providing the DoD with full visibility of vulnerability, configuration and compliance requirements.

Retina CS does this through unparalleled security intelligence and analytics for the entire IT landscape, including support for emerging technology investments such as cloud and mobile computing as well as virtualization.

"We are honored to continue our strong relationship with the DoD by providing all branches of the Armed Forces with a solution that has met their requirements for the past decade and is designed for highly complex, and heterogeneous government agency infrastructures," said Kevin Hickey, president and CEO at BeyondTrust. "We have a long and distinguished history as a provider of threat management and compliance solutions for both government agencies and enterprise commercial organizations.

Choosing the right cloud for your workloads is a balancing act that can cost your organization time, money and aggravation - unless you get it right the first time. Economics, speed, performance, accessibility, administrative needs and security all play a vital role in dictating your approach to the cloud. Without knowing the right questions to ask, you could wind up paying for capacity you'll never need or underestimating the resources required to run your applications.
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...
