If that truly is the case, this would be Iran’s first foray into cyber-warfare. When it comes to possible motives behind the attack, it’s all still in domain of speculation. From looking into UK’s interests to try it to make any concessions, to scouting for advantages in trade, to changing the direction of the nuclear deal.

Why orchestration and threat intelligence are a perfect match

Threat

Today’s adversaries are moving faster than ever before, and for organizations trying to protect themselves against advanced and evolving threats, speed is essential. But the reality is that security teams don’t necessarily have the time to manage and evaluate every single alert they receive while also completing their everyday tasks -- and even the most skilled teams are struggling to keep up.

Certain aspects of cybersecurity are just inherently slow, like copying and pasting information from one tool to another. And if security teams are focused on getting through these simple, repetitive, time consuming tasks, it’s no wonder they struggle to achieve the speed needed to outpace hackers. And, at worst, it can mean a threat falls through the cracks.

Dropbox Professional is a new business service for independent workers

Dropbox is one of my favorite cloud storage services for many reasons. As someone who uses Windows, Desktop Linux, iOS, and macOS regularly, I need a solution that works seamlessly between operating systems. Dropbox is the only major offering that meets that need. I appreciate the love and respect that the company shows to the Desktop Linux community in particular. This is something Google has famously failed to do despite maintaining two Linux distros with Chrome OS and Android, but I digress.

Today, "Dropbox Professional" launches, and no it is not a rebrand of Dropbox Business. Actually, this new "Professional" service is aimed at individual business workers. If you are in business for yourself, and not necessarily a part of a team, and still want access to business-level tools, this is for you. It comes with 1TB of storage and access to a really cool new feature called "Showcase."
