Australia and New Zealand Data Protection as a Service Markets, 2018 & 2019-2027

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 14 novembre 2019

The Australia and New Zealand data protection as a service market accounted for US$ 159.2 Mn in 2018 and is expected to reach US$ 2244.8 Mn by 2027, thereby registering an attractive CAGR growth rate of 34.3% from 2019 to 2027.Factors such as stringent data protection regulations for information security and increasing need for data backups and archives are propelling the growth of data protection as a service market. However, High incurrence of costs of data protection service is hindering the data protection as a service market growth to a certain extent. Globally, organizations are investing in advanced technologies and solutions to upgrade businesses. They are driven by the factors which include growing new data streams, increase the need for storage, flexible IT consumption models, rising cyber security threats & compliance, among others. With the exponential data growth in the organization and deployment of advanced technology, there is a requirement of the data backup systems.Also, for every data record or object created in the organization, it needs a backup system for operational data loss prevention, archiving for long term retention to ensure regulatory compliance, disaster recovery, and remote applications for business continuity. Therefore, in the organization, there is a continuous requirement for the data backups and archives, as the data loss can lead to revenue loss, lawsuits, privacy violations, and other setbacks. The implementation of data protection as a service would support organizations for data backup and archives, and it offers a unified approach to data protection and fast recovery & agile restoration.
Convergence is one of the key aspects that has developed the DPaaS industry. It comprises the software-defined storage, networking services, hardware abstraction, central orchestration, as well as, geographically distributed architecture that deliver the IT infrastructure, and make it effective and agile. Further, for data backup and archive, data protection as a service can scale data integrity as well as retention of data for long periods, and this is important for the current organization for the protection of data. This is highly influencing the growth of data protection as a service market.

Stellar Cyber Delivers Intelligence to SIEMs with “Data Streaming” App

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 14 novembre 2019

Security provider Stellar Cyber, with the first Open-XDR security application platform, today announced that it has added a new “Data Streaming” Application to its Starlight This App slashes the cost of using an existing SIEM by reducing and optimizing the data fed to it, and ensuring that only high-fidelity, actionable events reach the SIEM instead of oceans of data. With a stand-alone SIEM, customers are used to dumping everything in it in the hope that they will catch all known threats by querying that data, but this data can overwhelm a SIEM and lead to hours or days of frustration as analysts weed through data to find actionable threats. Starlight’s Data Streaming Application uses machine learning and advanced analytics to determine which events are actually security related events and forwards them to the SIEM so analysts can query the reduced data and achieve superior threat-fighting results. In this way, Starlight’s automated detection and response mechanisms improve the value of a SIEM while also reducing its cost, since the cost is typically based on data volume.Stellar Cyber’s “Interflow” technology reduces, enriches and correlates original data including security information such as Threat Intelligence, location information such as Geo location, user name, hostname, domain names, or machine learning results like DGA, port-scan, etc. The context from Interflow, as exportable and searchable JSON files, provides details analysts need to quickly reach conclusions. Interflow processed data from Starlight can be fed to the existing SIEM to improve both analyst and SIEM efficiency.

TTP plc Desktop Biology Enables Development and Manufacture of DnaNudge Technology

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 14 novembre 2019

TTP plc (TTP), a leading independent technology and product development company, today announced that its Desktop Biology™ service has enabled the fast-track development of a novel technology in partnership with DnaNudge Ltd, the developer of the world’s first DNA-based service to “nudge” consumers towards genetically optimal buying behaviour. The technology is designed to help consumers make healthier food and drink choices based on their unique genetic profile.The DnaNudge experience provides the consumer with personalised product recommendations suited to their individual genetic makeup, delivered through a wearable device or a mobile app, to enable the individual to choose between options from a specific product family (e.g. biscuits) resulting in a “nudge” towards a heathier lifestyle. A key enabler of this is the NudgeBox and DnaCartridge, which extracts and amplifies DNA from a customer cheek swab, providing an individual genetic report based on assessment of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs). The genetic information is subsequently cross-referenced against a database that matches the nutritional values of manufactured food products with genetic characteristics.TTP, in partnership with DnaNudge Ltd, played a key role in the development of the NudgeBox and DNA Cartridge from the initial market vision through to feasibility, prototyping and small-scale manufacture. The NudgeBox enables a complex biological workflow and analysis to be undertaken in a consumer environment. TTP has manufactured an early run of instruments and has established a small-scale production line for cartridge assembly and biology integration, and is now working with DnaNudge to transfer to the high-volume manufacturing partners. The TTP Desktop Biology team converted a genomic DNA extraction protocol and multiplex real-time PCR amplification into an elegant simple-to-use instrument and low-cost single-use cartridge. The protocol required accurate control of a number of key factors to help ensure a high-quality result. The core lysis and solid phase DNA extraction protocol is integrated in the core of the cartridge and purified material passed to an array where 72 independent DNA amplification reactions are very carefully controlled and monitored to determine particular genetic variants (SNPs) that help guide nutrition (and in the future – other) purchasing decisions. The development itself has engaged a team at TTP that extends from cloud communication expertise to biological assay development as well as system engineering, thermal control and optics and design to manufacture.
