There are three technologies that can help prevent ransomware: Cloud access security broker (CASB), secure web gateway (SWG), and data loss prevention (DLP). These components have converged into a single solution for what has now been coined the secure access service edge (SASE) architecture.

Due to ongoing geopolitical events, particularly the Russia-Ukraine conflict, some individuals have begun to “poison” major open-source projects to try to cause damage. There were developers (cyber-activists) that chose to introduce code specifically targeting computers in Russia and Belarus.
Nearly a month has passed since the start of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Before this, the “Cold War” of cyberattacks has consisted of plenty of nation-state-sponsored activity against Western targets. But until now, this activity has not been a weaponized component in an active physical conflict with Western countries (whether direct or, in this case, by proxy).
One of the primary things Information Technology (IT) and security teams continue to contend with are alerts. Every system has the capability to generate an alert. Is it some sort of security alert?

“You cannot secure what you do not know.” I frequently see iterations of this phrase when it comes to cybersecurity and visibility. When a security team looks to gain insight into what is being used in their network, they won’t be able to secure what they can’t see or are not aware of. It’s here that the buzzword of Shadow IT (Information Technology) is also commonly thrown around. You can think of Shadow IT as the thing that you do not know is on the network – and therefore cannot secure.

Nexum, Inc.’s technology partner Juniper recently announced it was adding support for the SSR (Session Smart Routing) product line to its Mist portal. But beyond including another part of the Juniper family in the portal, why is this a big deal? And how does this help clients who may just be getting started with their Mist journey? How does this help clients run their network more easily in the long run?
This week, Gartner released the 2021 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Wired and Wireless LAN Infrastructure and Juniper Networks was recognized as a Leader for the second year in a row, positioned furthest in both Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision.

Prior to its acquisition by Juniper Networks, 128 Technology celebrated each year on 1/28 – and together, we’re keeping the tradition alive! This anniversary is especially exciting as it’s been just over one year since the companies came together. So, it’s the perfect occasion to look back at what has been achieved in this short period of time and discuss the more exciting things that are still yet to come.
Over the past few years, it goes without saying that the world has experienced a great deal of ups and downs.
