The new Fusion platform seeks to improve cloud-based development, while the IoT Discovery Toolkit enables companies to test the waters of a nascent industry.
Autodesk unveiled a number of new collaborative toolkits at the Accelerate 2017 conference in Boston earlier this week. The Fusion platform is a suite of products aimed at increasing collaboration and efficiency in new product lifecycles, while the IoT Discovery Toolkit provides a firm foundation for the development of secure IoT (Internet of Things) solutions.
I remember making a 3D model of my parent’s first house back in 2007. All I had were our architect’s drawings, Google SketchUp and a battered old IBM ThinkPad R51 (with a 1.5 GHz Pentium M chip, 512 MB RAM and a 40 GB HDD, no less). At the time, I didn’t really have a reason for doing it. I was bored, had time on my hands and SketchUp was a fascinating new tool.
Following a couple of days of struggle with the stuttering machine — and my ineptitude with SketchUp didn’t help — I finally had a 3D model that bore a passing resemblance to the house we wanted. The finished product wasn’t the masterpiece I hoped it was, but it beat a 2D, architect’s drawing any day of the week. The walls were in the right place, if a little lower than expected, the roof was up and SketchUp gave me the option to model sunlight. Pencil on paper just didn’t compare.
That model was an eye opener. Little details that we hadn’t thought of earlier started popping out. The external structure looked too bland, for example, and so mom decided that a patterned wall would improve it. We fine tuned the design of the pergola to accommodate our car, experimented with various types of sloped roofs and even tried different layouts for the staircase. Many of these changes made their way into the final design.
Ransomware has grown from virtually non-existent only a few years ago to causing billions of dollars in damages in 2017.
Fortunately, ransomware has very distinct behavior compared with other kinds of malware--it tells you that an attack has taken place.
From a defender's point of view, being alerted to an attack is far better than having it stay undetected in your systems. In this presentation, you will learn:

The need for real-time access to critical data is driving today’s digital transformation. The volume of data being generated, the proliferation of data mining applications, and consumer expectations about access to information are all increasing the value of data and making effective data management and orchestration increasingly critical.
Which makes securing that data more important than ever.
Which is why Fortinet is a Signature Sponsor at this year’s Oracle OpenWorld 2017 conference, being held October 1-5 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. This year over 60,000 attendees from around the world are expected to participate.
Fortinet experts and innovative solutions will be featured in Kiosk #SOA-065, which is located in the Security Section on the Moscone – West expo floor. We will be featuring demo stations highlighting some of our most exciting and relevant security innovations and topics:
A two-year-long quest to 3D print a steel bridge in Amsterdam signals what the technology can–and can’t–do.
Remember how just five years ago it seemed like 3D printing was going to take over the world? How it seemed like we’d have 3D-printed cars that we’d be parking in our 3D-printed houses? Things didn’t seem to work outso much. But even while the hype died, companies have been steadily working on the technology.
Malicious links are not new, but they continue to plague us. Research shows that a significant number of people will click on a link in an email, web page, or document without taking a second thought, and all too often, end up infecting their device with dangerous malware.
Industrial robotics and autonomation technologies from companies including Adelphi Automation, KUKA Robotics, Rockwell Automation, SCM Handling and Autodesk are taking part in a live art installation which aims to challenge the dystopian views that the public have of robots that is due to be opened this week.
Entitled Slave/Master, as a part of the London Design Festival and Digital Design Weekend at the Victoria & Albert Museum, it explores the edges of industrial robot/human interaction robot performers, human dancers and projected graphics.
“Our profession is in between ‘utopia and oblivion.’ It will be oblivion if we continue focusing on minor aesthetic problems.”
Co.Design asked a handful of the 2017 Innovation By Design Award recipients and honorees working in technology, branding, experience design, architecture, urbanism, product design, and industrial design about the ideas that will impact the industry the most in the next few years. Of primary concern to many individuals? If the current trajectory of design will lead us to a better world or plunge us deeper into our pool of problems, redefining what “better” means, and taking a closer look at who is benefiting from design.
End-to-end malware analysis helps provide protection from infected objects residing on or flowing from all applications (email, websites, mobile, etc.) and all endpoint device types (Windows, Mac OS X, Android, iOS). Lastline’s proven integration with Carbon Black is assisting numerous organizations with realizing this important goal of end-to-end security.
Carbon Black and Lastline Integration
The Lastline and Carbon Black integration enables a two-way flow of threat related data that enhances both products, and significantly improves analysts’ ability to detect and prevent malware-based attacks. Lastline ingests suspicious files from Carbon Black, analyzes them for malware, and then sends the results back so Carbon Black can block malicious files and related attacks.
Carbon Black benefits from the advanced malware analysis provided by Lastline, and Lastline is improved by the greater visibility that the additional Carbon Black files provide.
Because the integration has already been completed, organizations that wish to add Lastline to their existing Carbon Black installation can do so easily and quickly. The reverse is also true. Existing Lastline customers that want to add Carbon Black endpoint protection will find it simple and straight forward.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the world’s first attempt at implementing big data compliance regulation, and it seems to be inspiring some fear throughout the compliance industry. Now that GDPR has come to combat the uptick in cyberattack, compliance has to evolve.
To help businesses march into this new digital era, LogRhythm Labs has been working hard to develop a sound and efficient strategy to drive companies toward success with GDPR. Rather than providing duplicate alarms and reports for you to dig through, LogRhythm will be presenting the first Unified Compliance Framework SIEM Automation Suite to grace the industry.
