IT Business Products : SSD 101

If the initials SSD fail to make your heart beat faster, you haven’t been following the latest technology news. SSD stands for “Solid-State Drive,” an electronic reinvention of the hard drive. And your PC wants one.

No Moving Parts

Machines with moving parts eventually break down; it’s a law of nature. Old-fashioned hard drives, with spinning platters, moving read-write heads, and fragile magnetic media are a perfect example. That’s why the latest electronic technology is aimed at replacing those clunky hard drives with sleek SSDs—solid-state drives that use nonvolatile NAND flash memory. Dropping an SSD into your PC is easy, especially if you choose a vendor that designs its SSDs to use the same interface as a standard hard disk drive and with the same physical dimensions.

Fast is Good

SSDs access data a lot faster than standard hard drives. For office staffers or students working on a Netbook or laptop that means less time waiting for the computer to boot up, or for data to become available. And laptop warriors will be pleased to note that SSDs use far fewer amps than hard drives. Install an SSD, and your laptop battery may last several hours longer—long enough for you to finish that report before the plane lands.

Fail-Safe Storage

Because SSDs have no moving parts, they have a huge edge over regular drives. For one thing, SSDs are more resistant to shock and vibration than hard-disk drives, with fewer potential points of mechanical failure. Also, SSDs are silent, which makes them great for PCs in living areas. Finally, they use less power and generate less heat, so they don’t require fans.

The Trade-Offs

Of course, SSDs are still more expensive, gigabyte for gigabyte, than standard hard drives. And while a new SSD may offer blazing speed, over time its performance may degrade depending on how you use the drive and how your operating system manages memory writes. Also, cheaper models are significantly slower than top-of-the-line SSD devices. And for the most part, SSDs limit you to much smaller storage capacity than do conventional hard drives – at least for now.

Bottom Line

Prices on SSDs are dropping fast as new operating systems (particularly Windows 7) take advantage of their potentially higher speeds. That means the best time to consider sliding one into your computer is right now.

A hacker cartel is using a mysterious Flash vulnerability to steal sensitive business data

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Hackers are using a mysterious, as yet undiscovered, Flash vulnerability, to steal sensetive business data from Macbook and Windows users, according to researchers at Kaspersky Lab. Kaspersky Lab revealed the campaign in a threat advisory, warning a hacker group, known as Wild Neutron is using the “unknown Flash Player exploit” to infect companies and private web users with a data siphoning malware. “The initial infection vector from the 2014-2015 attacks is still unknown, although there are clear indications that the victims are exploited by a kit that leverages an unknown Flash Player exploit,” read the advisory. The attacks have reportedly targeted businesses involved in law, the Bitcoin cryptocurrency, investment, IT, healthcare, and real estate. Known targets have been detected in France, Russia, Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Palestine, Slovenia, Kazakhstan, UAE, Algeria, and the United States. Kaspersky Lab director of global research and analysis team Costin Raiu said Wild Neutron’s wide range of targets is atypical and indicates the attackers are significantly more advanced than most cyber crime groups. “The group’s targeting of major IT companies, spyware developers (FlexiSPY), jihadist forums (the ‘Ansar Al-Mujahideen English Forum’) and Bitcoin companies indicate a flexible yet unusual mindset and interests,” he said. The Kaspersky researchers said […]

With faster boot-up time, file searches, app start-ups, and less downtime and power usage, you’ll know why Solid State Drives are the best choice, and where hard drives got their name.

Read the Expert Reviews on the SSD 470 Series.

Save precious work time with the power performance of a Solid State Drive (SSD)—and leave the office early.

1. Speed Up Your Boot-Up

SSD knows that «go» means «go». Just turn it on and begin working in less than 30 seconds.

Remember the last time you attempted a simple e-mail search using a Hard Disk Drive (HDD)? Now imagine crunching that time so it’s 5x faster. That’s the power of an SSD.

3. Trim File Transfer Time by Almost a Third

Transfer and copy files thirteen minutes and five seconds faster than usual—just enough time to give you a head start on rush-hour traffic.

4. Start Applications in Seconds

Need to make a quick ten-second edit before meeting with a client? SSDs load programs such as Adobe Photoshop and PowerPoint more than twice as fast as their HDD counterparts.

5. Double File-Compilation Power

Just because programmers sit behind a computer screen all day doesn’t mean they’re immune to slowness. An SSD boasts 2x faster file-compilation times than HDD.

6. Cut Downtime by Half

Routine maintenance tasks shouldn’t disrupt your work flow. SSD cuts simple tasks such as virus scans by almost 50 percent.

7. Reduce Power Consumption

SSD requires less energy than a conventional HDD and can add an average of 30 minutes to battery life.

8. Master Multitasking

SSD smoothly handles multiple programs so you can crop photos and load game maps nearly 3x faster than with HDD.

5 tips to protect your business against cyber crime

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

With 30,000 companies hacked every day, it’s no wonder cyber crime is ranked one of the top five risks facing businesses this year, according to the 2015 Allianz Risk Barometer report. It’s also the top emerging risk for the next five years. (See more about the other top risks facing businesses this yearhere.) So why do so many businesses still underestimate the effects of cyber attacks? Respondents of the Allianz report cite budget constraints as the primary reason for their lack of preparedness for the potential damage caused. What many business owners don’t realize is that cyber attacks cost companies an average of $720,000 per incident, taking an average of 45 days to resolve. There’s a misconception that larger companies, like the Targets and Home Depots of the world, are more likely to be the target of an attack. But, according to the National Small Business Association, 44 percent of small businesses have experienced a cyber attack. In fact, the malware attacker that accessed Target’s private data did so by using the network access privileges of one of Target’s heating and air conditioning vendors, Fazio Mechanical Services, Inc. By acting as a portal, Fazio, a $12.5 million dollar company, opened […]

7 things to do when your business is hacked

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

The first thing an IT security executive should do after the corporate network has been breached is fall back on the incident response plan that was put in place well before attackers got through the carefully constructed defenses. That’s what should have happened, but even if it wasn’t there are certain steps that anyone running an incident response team should follow in order to accomplish the main goal of any such cleanup: getting the network back to supporting business as usual as quickly as possible. There are seven key things breach-repair leaders should do, according to Wade Woolwine, the manager of strategic services for Rapid7, who outlined the steps last week at his company’s United customer conference. “It’s all about recovering the business back to normal operations,” Woolwine says. Here are the seven steps: Each incident may call for a different set of players. For example, if the first notification of a breach comes from the FBI calling to say it’s found out the corporate network was breached, one of the first people to call is the company legal officer. Or if the breach involves loss of critical corporate data the trade secrets that represent the value of the company […]

It’s Your Business: My website was hacked. Here’s what I did.

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

The feeling might best be compared to the emotions I felt when my home was invaded. First there was disbelief, then anger, and finally a lingering sense of vulnerability. According to a 2013 survey by the National Small Business Association (NSBA), 44 percent of small businesses have had their websites hacked. Now, add mine to that list. The nightmare began last month with an ominous note from Google: “Our system has detected activity which may violate Google policies in…” A further read revealed that the giant search-engine and advertising company had effectively quarantined a suspect page on my website. “Malware” had been detected. A call to my developer confirmed the worst: The website I’d built with such care and expense was under “active attack,” and cleaning up the malicious files and “closing the vulnerabilities” would “run somewhere in the neighborhood of $1,500 — $2,000.” (Hacker victims in the NSBA survey averaged $8,700.) Unlike the politically motivated hackers looking to advance an agenda, those who attack business websites are typically seeking cash.Once malware files are planted, hackers may gain access to business bank accounts or customer credit card data. Some malware even attaches itself to the computers of online customers, allowing […]

Business profile: gospel singer/songwriter LJaye


singer songwriter LJayeLawrence “LJaye” James is a gospel singer and songwriter from Atlanta, Georgia.  At an early age, he discovered his gift for creating music. As the son of a Pastor and Evangelist, he knew he possessed something greater than talent; he possessed the anointing of God, which allowed his voice to be used as God’s instrument through ministry. Through song, LJaye brings the spirit and glory of God wherever he ministers, whether in church, a concert, or on the street corner.

LJaye began his music career in R&B, where he was privileged to work with some of the music industry’s biggest R&B and pop artists and producers, such as singer T-Boz from theSinger Songwriter LJaye hit group TLC, mega hit producer Dallas Austin, and producer Rondeau “Duke” Williams. He has had the privilege to open for R&B star and gospel artist, Kelly Price as well as performed at the historic Apollo Theatre, where he won the competition after charming the infamous audience.

Once LJaye began working on his debut R&B album, he discovered that God had a different plan for him. After rebelling against his parents request to get back into the church and sing gospel music, LJaye found himself in trouble several times with the law and eventually was incarcerated. LJaye could no longer run from his calling and felt the presence of the Lord in his jail cell. It was there in that cell, where he wrote his hit single, “Before I Was Saved” the story of his testimony. LJaye re-dedicated his life to the Lord and vowed to do God’s work and promised to fulfill his parent’s wishes.


Singer songwriter LJayeAs LJaye found himself basking in the presence of God, his heart began to fill with songs that were birthed from his struggles, pain, defeat, and victories. Realizing that so many people can relate to his story, but are not connected to the Lord, he decided to get back into the studio to record his debut gospel album titled, “Before I Was Saved” in an effort to reach the unreached. The album was released on LJaye’s record label JayeHill Records, which he founded with his partner and music industry veteran Bobby Hill, former Vice President of Maurice Starr Enterprises (New Edition and New Kids On The Block). LJaye also enlisted producer, friend, and long time collaborator, Rondeau “Duke Williams to produce several songs on the album, as well as Courtney “CL” Horton (Deitrick Haddon and Damitia Haddon) and Larry “Detroit” Nix (R. Kelly & Gucci Man) to bring a gospel, R&B, pop, and hip hop influenced sound to compliment his message and lyrics to give non-church goers a familiar sound to deliver the word of God.

LJaye desires to use his platform to implement God’s work in an effort to reach the masses and bring them into the Kingdom of God. He is currently working on a new single that is scheduled to be released later this year.
