Mobile Security


ADD MORE SECURITY TO YOUR MOBILE PHONES



Carriers of both iOS and Android mobile devices can improve their mobile security with apps that offer help with password management, encryption and other security best practices.
                   By Aaron Weiss 



When security analysts look at the potential weaknesses in a system, they talk about how much "surface area" is exposed to risk. Mobile computing is an incredible convenience but it has also sizably increased our personal surface areas. Smartphones and tablets extend network access to our sensitive data well outside the home and office, and the devices themselves are physically small and vulnerable to loss and theft.

ANDROID : Fitness Tracker


 



Jawbone's UP24 Makes Its Way to Android


                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    By Katherine Noyes LinuxInsider


It seems incomplete -- to say the least -- for any mobile app to limit itself to iOS. Jawbone may have had good reasons for choosing to release its fitness tracker before it was ready for Android, but it still meant having to ignore a huge market segment. Now that it has rectified that omission, Jawbone may have vastly improved its chances of making it big in the wearable fitness market.

LinuxInsider


Red Hat's new JBoss BPM Suite is in part the result of its 2012 acquisition of Polymita, noted 451 Research analyst Carl Lehmann. The addition of that technology and other new features brings Red Hat's BPM offering on par with other BPM suites and "gives Red Hat some competitive differentiation in the market," he said. "I think they did a pretty good job there."

By Chris Maxcer


By giving up total control, Apple is broadening its reach and stifling competition at the same time. Plus, it's a win for automakers. A car manufacturer typically can't compete with the highly tuned world of smartphone and tablet innovation, but CarPlay allows them let their customers use their iPhones to drive the in-car communication, navigation and music experience -- in a familiar way.
