Continuous Integration

Continuous Integration, also know as CI, is an important part of modern software development. In fact it is a real game changer when Continuous Integration is introduced into an organisation, since it radically alters the way teams think about the whole development process.

The Spectre of Un-Patchable Hardware Haunts Us All — Don’t Meltdown!

Specter and Meltdown hacks

Ofttimes it has been difficult to explain the role of software protection in hardware-protected secure systems, but recently security researchers have helped us out by providing many examples of zero-day exploits where flaws that are baked into hardware or firmware lead to exploitable vulnerabilities in systems. In this article we are having a look at Spectre & Meltdown and explore how these attacks could have been avoided using application protection technology.

Make Yourself Less of a Target – A multi-layered Approach to Application Shielding

How the Target hack could have been prevented using Application Shielding technology

Some of you will remember the Target and Home Depot cyberattacks in 2013 & 2014, which resulted in $202 million (Sruthi Ramakrishnan, 2017) and $134.5 million USD (Roberts, 2017) of damages respectively. In this blog article, let’s examine these and other infamous hacks in detail to glean important lessons about system and application security.
