  • Questback confirms it meets stringent, revised EU data transfer regulations

    In light of the recent European Court of Justice ruling to invalidate the Safe Harbor data-transfer agreement between the U.S. and European Union/European Economic Area (EEA), Questback today confirmed that it remains compliant with the EU/EEA data protection regulations. The new ruling means that technology companies processing data under the Safe Harbor framework are no longer in compliance with the EU/EEA regulations, and that customers using such services may be in breach of the law.

  • What is Internet of Things (IoT) and its Impact on Industries?

    What is Internet of Things (IoT) and its Impact on Industries?

    The Internet of Things (IoT)  is the idea to expand the existing Internet infrastructure (such as IP or UDP/TCP) to devices in order to facilitate communication between the devices themselves and between the devices and humans.The underlying functionality of IoT allows objects to be controlled and sensed remotely across an existing network infrastructure.  Hence, it creates tremendous opportunities for a direct integration between our physical world and the computer-based systems.

  • Overcoming HIPAA Compliance Challenges With Cloud Faxing

    Overcoming HIPAA Compliance Challenges With Cloud Faxing

    What makes the traditional faxing process even more cumbersome and insecure for many provider offices is that often, the information that is sent via fax becomes electronic, when staff enters the information into a database or electronic health record by hand or via scanning, thereby changing it to information that must be secured under the HIPAA electronic PHI rules. All of this, in addition to the cumbersome and time intensive process of using a traditional fax machine, has many providers wondering how they can send PHI and still maintain HIPAA compliance.

    One solution to the faxing-HIPAA compliance dilemma is a secure cloud faxing solution. These solutions give providers more flexibility when sending faxes, while also increasing the overall security of the PHI they contain.

  • On the road to a better Agility CMS

    On the road to a better Agility CMS

    While the Agility CMS has been in Beta for much of 2015, the Production release will be rolling out to Agility's clients and their sites this Fall. While gradual improvements were made in the CMS, probably the biggest change for Agility Inc. was in late 2013 with the appointment of their new CEO, Jonathan Voigt. When Jon was appointed CEO he promised a refocused vision for Agility that would provide better products and improved services for Agility's paying customers. This autumn, Agility fulfills that promise as it rolls out a significant rebuild and redesign of the content management system's interface. Besides the interface improvements, the new version of Agility CMS also introduces a new Dashboard feature as well as significant improvements in software performance and task workflow.

    Agility and their clients have a lot riding on this new release. Let's take a sneak peek at what the new CMS has to offer.

  • The Need for Decentralized Cloud Computing

    The Need for Decentralized Cloud Computing

    On an early August morning, users of Amazon Web Services (AWS) woke up to some rather startling and frightening news. Error messages indicated that services were down both for the Simple Storage Service (S3) and Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) solutions that Amazon provides. This severe outage lasted well into the afternoon and early evening before Amazon finally notified its customers that the problems had been corrected and services restored. While the outage lasted less than a day, it sparked a new discussion about what caused it and, just as important, how to prevent such outages from occurring in the future. For some, the solution to the problem was clear: decentralized cloud computing. While some have rejected this idea, proponents say the benefits of a decentralized cloud network are worth pursuing, especially when it comes to future outages.

  • The Ongoing Question of Data Ownership in the Cloud

    The Ongoing Question of Data Ownership in the Cloud

    Cloud computing is a revolutionary phenomenon in the business world, one that has been going on for several years now. As such, it may come as a surprise to some that the questions surrounding data ownership in the cloud remain an ongoing dilemma -- a complicated issue that’s still far from being resolved. It’s one of the biggest reasons many companies are reluctant to embrace the cloud. After all, why risk sending valuable data into the cloud without a guarantee that it will still be yours in the end? While organizations and cloud providers have been struggling to come up with a workable solution to the dilemma, progress has still been made on the issue. Even so, many questions still remain, and businesses would be wise to take proper precautions when making a major transition to the cloud.
