The New Version of Kaspersky Security Cloud Strengthens Privacy Control for Apps and Websites

Kaspersky has updated Kaspersky Security Cloud – its account-based service with access to the company’s best consumer technologies and tools – with new ways to protect user privacy across multiple devices. Kaspersky Security Cloud now reduces the risk of users’ privacy being violated by warning them about the risks of dangerous and special permissions requested by apps on Android devices. In addition, it notifies users about phishing attempts hidden behind shortened links to websites. Kaspersky’s traditional consumer product line, with Essential-to-Premium solutions, has been further enhanced to offer a better user experience through performance improvements and optimizing the number of notifications.

According to Kaspersky’s report – The true value of digital privacy: are consumers selling themselves short? – it is increasingly common for consumers to protect their digital privacy by checking the settings on their devices and the apps that they use. In fact, more than a third (35%) of consumers regularly follow this practice.

However, as apps today often make suspicious permission requests that could endanger user privacy, confusion reigns. In order to simplify consumers’ control over privacy and save time in managing settings, Kaspersky Security Cloud’s new feature for Android devices enables users to view and manage app permissions in one place, at a glance. This helps identify potentially dangerous or questionable requests made by an app, and explains the risks associated with different types of common permissions.

In addition to suspicious app permissions, there’s another privacy risk that consumers need to be aware of and this has been accounted for in the new version of Kaspersky Security Cloud. In recent years, short URLs have seen widespread adoption due to the limited amount of characters they take up in instant messages or tweets. In fact, many legitimate services now use short URLs to link to desired webpages for sales and marketing purposes. However, while there are benefits, they can be dangerous as users don’t neccessarily know where they lead. This can have serious privacy consequences and has resulted in the increased popularity of short URLs among cybercriminals in recent years. To combat this, users of Kaspersky Security Cloud can take advantage of an improved Anti-Phishing feature to better protect personal information. The service analyzes short URLs and warns if a phishing link is hidden behind them. As part of this process, Kaspersky Security Cloud sends an anti-phishing alert to the user and ensures that the links and websites they access are safe.

“For modern users, it is not enough to just secure their device. Cybercriminals are becoming more interested in obtaining personal information about a specific person – whether it is a piece of financial information or their search history. If this sort of information is exposed, it can bring potential harm to its owner making the issue of digital privacy extremely important. In order to provide more control over personal information regardless of which type of device they use, we have updated Kaspersky Security Cloud. We are helping consumers keep their personal data safe and sound across multiple devices,” comments Marina Titova, Head of Consumer Product Marketing at Kaspersky.

There are three editions of Kaspersky Security Cloud: Free (extended version of Kaspersky Free that now, apart from Windows, supports mobile devices and delivers personalized protection), Personal and Family. Each edition offers a different number of applications, tools and technologies. All Kaspersky Security Cloud subscribers can install its applications and technologies on a PC, Mac and mobile devices. What is more, all customers will receive the new features and updates for free within the subscription period.

Kaspersky Anti-Virus, Kaspersky Internet Security and Kaspersky Total Security: performance improvements and better user experience

As well as updating Kaspersky Security Cloud, Kaspersky has also refined the interface and key capabilities within Kaspersky Anti-Virus, Kaspersky Internet Security and Kaspersky Total Security. This has improved performance, how consumers receive notifications, and the overall user experience.

Kaspersky has worked on improving its traditional security solutions’ performance for Windows. For example, in order to speed up lengthy file system scans for malware, the restriction on the PC’s resources consumed has been lifted. Furthermore, the latest version can be installed in just half the time and is 15% ‘lighter’ – so there’s less load on the user’s PC.

In addition, security solutions now only alert users about significant events and ensure a frictionless experience. For instance, when a user visits a banking website, they receive a notification from the Safe Money feature, informing them that their session is protected.

Kaspersky has also simplified how credentials and account information is exchanged between the company’s products. Thus, consumers who already use some of Kaspersky’s software do not have to re-enter their credentials whenever they install a new product. Rather, they can manage them all under one My Kaspersky account.

Free Kadena scalable permissioned blockchain on Azure

The platform also includes a simple smart contract language designed for business. In combination these enable enterprises to develop and deploy …

KadenaKadena is making a free secure, scalable blockchain platform for businesses available on Azure. Intended for evaluation and small-deployment purposes, it is limited to 2,000 TPS across 4 nodes. If an enterprise needs more capacity Kadena will happily sell access to a full Azure-hosted Enterprise Edition of its blockchain.

Will Martino, Kadena co-founder and CEO
Will Martino, Kadena co-founder and CEO

Kadena co-founder and CEO Will Martino told TechCrunch that this builds on the success of last year’s similar endeavour involving AWS. “Our private chain is designed for enterprise use. It’s designed for being high-performance and for integrating with traditional back ends. And by bringing that chain to AWS marketplace, and now to Microsoft Azure, we are servicing almost all of the enterprise blockchain market that takes place in the cloud.

Features

Among the features being made available are:

  • a scalable solution, to enable organizations to transact digitally (electronically perform commercial transactions and share data)
  • full auditability, via the tamper-proof historical ledger
  • the ability to build blockchain applications which automate business processes (Kadena says this happens with far less effort and risk than other offerings currently available)
  • robustness and flexibility to handle most enterprise workflows
  • security and flexibility – including secure channels, trustless escrows, pluggable encryption, contract governance, and automatic bug detection.

Already in use by Fortune 500 companies Kadena claims it has live deployments in the banking, healthcare and financial services sectors.

The Kadena blockchain

Kadena’s scalable blockchain enables enterprises to transact and share data in a decentralised manner. Kadena’s team is based around experience obtained from building:

  • JP Morgan’s blockchain technology
  • forensic data analysis systems for the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Its next technology solves many of the challenges with current generation blockchains — issues such as:

  • speed
  • scalability
  • security limitations.

Kadena claims its technology can support up to 8,000 TPS across 500 nodes (with the ability to support thousands of users). The platform also includes a simple smart contract language designed for business.

In combination these enable enterprises to develop and deploy new blockchain-based business applications faster and with less risk. Integration with Microsoft Azure services – such as MySQL – produce further complementary solutions.

Enterprise Times: what does this mean

The chase for high TPS blockchain platforms continues (for example, see Cypherium, Hedera, EduHash, Bitconch, GoChain, Constellation, #Metahash, Trustchain, Todo-Algorand). As happened in the long past TPS wars (remember Tandem Guardian vs CICS vs IMS vs Oracle vs …), a renewed competitive spirit has emerged.

There is a caveat. As Enterprise Times has observed previously, many of the high TPS blockchain platforms ‘burn bright’ for a while and then disappear. Whether this is applicable to Kadena is not (yet) clear. It does seem to have greater credibility. It would have more if Enterprise Times, and enterprises, could see the evidence that it handles those 8000 TPS across 500 nodes.

Finally, Kadena is not alone in offering a free trial blockchain as an inducement. And there will be others.

Altcoin Explorer: BitTorrent Token (BTT)

Reading Time: 3minutesbyAshwath BalakrishnanonAugust 29, 2019&nbspAltcoin Explorer, Altcoins

BitTorrent, the first Binance Launchpad IEO, was issued to power the BitTorrent Speed network with a variety of use cases for the token listed in the whitepaper and subsequent analyses. But as pointed out by eminent crypto VC, Barry Dilbert, most utility tokens act as friction tokens that slow down efficiency and offer no real utility. In this run down, BTCManager covers the merits and demerits of the BitTorrent project.

First Major P2P File Sharing Client

BitTorrent is a brand that was well known before Satoshi Nakamoto even released his whitepaper for Bitcoin. It served as the most used P2P software and thrived due to its economic model of ‘give and receive’.

In 2018, TRON bought BitTorrent and announced their plan to integrate it into their network. This was met by criticism from the ex-CSO of BitTorrent who claimed that the TRON blockchain cannot handle the volume of transfers from BitTorrent.

As destiny would have it, the whitepaper outlined that they will deploy an on-chain token exchange with a private ledger to process BTT transactions, as TRON cannot achieve the necessary throughput to handle it.

TRON bought a company that owned the world’s largest P2P data transfer client, one that was thriving as it was, and deployed it on a blockchain with a token to create friction that never existed.

The team argues that the point of the token is to incentivize seeders and enable users to purchase network bandwidth. What they failed to understand is that the existing game theory of BitTorrent was perfect as it was – seeders keep seeding to keep the network strong, and in return when they need to leech there are adequate seeders.

With that said, another use-case of the token comes with the unveiling of BLive, BitTorrents mobile streaming service that is akin to that of the Brave browser, wherein users can tip their favorite streamers and content creators in BTT amongst other features. Whilst this does broaden the use-case for BTT, what can be said of the performance of the token on the market?

Tokenomics of BitTorrent

TRON’s plan of integrating a new incentive layer on BitTorrent can be seen as ambitious, and their intent is definitely positive. But the economics of BTT issuance renders it an asset nobody would want to hold – so what’s the point of even having the token?

BitTorrent is best compared to ERC20 tokens as they are both meant to be utility tokens built on top of a base blockchain.

Most ERC-20s like Golem (GNT), Basic Attention Token (BAT), and OmiseGo (OMG) have issued the entirety of their supply and have nil inflation. Others like ChainLink (LINK) and 0x have not and have issued 93 percent and 65 percent of their supply respectively.

BTT has issued 40 percent of its supply, with a reported supply of 212 billion tokens and a hard cap at 990 billion. The inflation rate on BTT is a mind-numbing 70.98 percent as per Messari data.

Essentially, investing in BitTorrent now means that by the time total supply has been issued, your position has been diluted to more than half of what it is today. Of the 588 cryptocurrencies and tokens for which Messari has data, BTT is at number 7 in terms of highest inflation rate.

The team and TRON Foundation will hold nearly 40 percent of supply. The public sale accounts for just 15 percent of total supply. If the Foundation and investors dump their tokens in the market to realize their returns, the minority are doomed.

Nobody in their right senses would invest with such high inflation; add the token dilution and low market float to the mix and you have an economic disaster on your hands.
