Members of the British Security Industry Association (BSIA) have returned from Intersec reporting a successful exhibition for UK exhibitors.

The three day show – held at the Dubai World Trade Centre over the 17th – 19th January – is seen by many as the most important security exhibition in the Middle East region and it plays a pivotal role in enabling UK companies to meet with potential customers, existing distributors or partners and as a platform to launch new products into the Middle-Eastern market.

Intersec has been a key fixture for many BSIA members who exhibit year-on-year and it continues to attract new exhibitors who are keen to take advantage of the opportunities the show presents.

HUDSON, Mass: Corero Network Security (LSE: CNS) has announced that France-based SdV Plurimédia, the leading hosting provider for the international media industry, has implemented the SmartWall® Threat Defense System (TDS) to protect its world-class data centers against DDoS attacks. With the Corero solution in place, SdV Plurimédia brings an optimum level of reliability to its networks and guarantees DDoS protection to its customers as part of its 99.999% Service Level Agreement (SLA).

London (UK): As the Self Assessment Tax Return deadline looms in the UK, PhishMe has warned of phishing messages, purporting to be from HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) circulating. While the number of campaigns* circulating in 2015 has decreased against previous years, the messages themselves still pose a threat due to their sophisticated and devious nature. It's worth noting a recent deviation is, instead of spreading malware, the scammers are trying to directly spoof individuals into handing over their personal information.

PLANTATION, Fla.: Thales has announced that the Vormetric Data Security Manager (DSM) is now secured with Thales nShield hardware security modules (HSMs). Customers in highly regulated and security conscious industries such as finance and banking can now benefit from the heightened levels of trust and security provided by Thales HSMs.

Three quarters of the Western European workforce will be mobile by 2018 and require the ability to access and process information quickly and securely in order to maintain and increase productivity, a new whitepaper from the analysts IDC has found.

Amazon Web Services announcement of the launch of its AWS Certificate Manager yesterday has High-Tech Bridge asking why Amazon has joined the game so late, with such a geographically limited service.

Infosecurity consultancy High-Tech Bridge's free SSL/TSL security checker, which provides users with complimentary TLS (transport layer security) and SSL (secure socket layer) analysis and report, was launched back in October 2015 and, since then, nearly 97,000 tests have been conducted, where users want to check the reliability and security of their data encryption.

Unlike Amazon, High-Tech Bridge offers a 24/7 service world-wide. Amazon's service is only currently provided in the US East Coast. That's a shame as High-Tech Bridge's Live SSL Security World Map clearly shows that SSL tests are in demand internationally and not just on the US' East Coast. High-Tech Bridge has added to the service by launching a free API last month.
