10 Tips to Troubleshoot Security Concerns in IoT Wearables

From smartwatches to glasses and finger rings - the range of wearable devices are steadily expanding. Combined with the might of Internet of Things, wearable devices have a life transforming effect. While it is fancy and often productive to carry these wearables around, the billion dollar question is, “How safe are these wearables?�

What if your favourite wearable is just another door that hackers and cybercriminals can break into to make away with the control of your personal and professional life?

Security concerns in wearables are legitimate. A study by Auth0 has confirmed that more than 52% of wearable device users feel that they are provided with inadequate security measures.

VTech, a popular brand that sells wearable for kids suffered a security breach which resulted in the leakage of private information of more than 200,000 children and their parents.

There is no better time to sit back and analyze the security concerns and the ways to negate them, right now, in the present.

7 Reasons Why Serverless Computing will Create a Revolution in Cloud Technology

Of late, you may have heard this term - Serverless Computing. It is a term that has been around in the developer’s world for more than a year, and it has already caused a paradigm shift in the field of cloud technology.

In this article, we will examine the reasons that caused serverless computing to be such a major trend.

Serverless Computing is a computing code execution model where the developers are relieved of several time-consuming activities so that they can focus on other important tasks.

This trend is also known as Function as a Service (FaaS) where the cloud vendor is responsible for starting and stopping a function’s container platform, check infrastructure security, reduce maintenance efforts, improve scalability, so on and so forth at low operational costs.

The aim is to develop microservice oriented solutions to help decompose complex applications into small, easily manageable and exchangeable modules.

This brings us to the question - are there really ‘serverless’ computing services?

Of course, it is only logical that there should be servers in the background, but developers need not bother about the operation or provisioning of these servers; the entire server management is done by the cloud provider. Thus, the developer can devote more of his time ...
