De-duplication delivers accurate, single search result set, eliminating need for multiple queries
SearchYourCloud (SYC), provider of real-time federated search for enterprise, today announces it has been granted a new patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for the sorting and de-duplication of a search query from multiple sources into a single search result. SYC’s new patent specifically allows for a search engine to receive multiple search results from one search query, process the input and remove duplicate results to generate one set of results for the user.
SYC is the only search provider to receive such a patent and now leads the market in advanced federated search results that can’t be duplicated by another search provider. The newly awarded patent combines with SYC’s 2013 Improved Search Engine patent, covering advanced search phrase terms, to create a unique approach to federated search. This capability is especially beneficial to enterprises searching for documents across cloud, desktops and multiple applications, as well as enterprises aggregating results from multiple sources for comparison of results.

Campaign highlights move away from traditional beliefs about software piracy as industry now focuses on the legally minded, accidental license infringement
The Federation Against Software Theft (FAST) and long-term industry member V.i. Labs, have launched a campaign aimed at educating software providers about individuals and businesses who unintentionally use software that is not licensed correctly. The campaign dispels long held beliefs that have resonated within the industry for decades – that all pirates are individuals who deliberately copy and use software with no regard to intellectual property. Not so.
Working together, FAST and V.i. Labs aim to raise awareness of the realities of unpaid licenses and accidental, but material, infringement. Legally inclined businesses and end users who are unaware that they are using unlicensed software represent a significant business opportunity for software providers.

STERLING, Va. -- April 26, 2016; Neustar, Inc., a trusted, neutral provider of real-time information services, today released the findings from its third global DDoS Attacks and Protection Report titled The Threatscape Widens: DDoS Aggression and the Evolution of IoT Risks. The April 2016 report follows a survey of over 1,000 IT professionals across six continents, and reveals that few organizations globally are being spared DDoS attacks. With the bombardment fairly constant throughout 2015, it is no longer a matter of if or when attacks might happen, but how often and how long the attack will last. Faced with this ongoing onslaught, the report demonstrates that increasingly DDoS-defense savvy organizations are now arming themselves accordingly.
The research results show that although revenue loss caused by a DDoS related outage is usually the main concern, 57% of all breaches involved some sort of theft including intellectual property and customer data as well as financial information. More troubling, following the initial breach, 45% of organizations reported the installation of a virus or malware - a sign that attackers are interested in causing ongoing harm.
The research highlights that although DDoS attack tactics continue to evolve from single large attacks intended to take a website offline to the multi-vector attacks we are seeing today, organizations are fighting back. The good news is 76% of companies are investing more in DDoS protection than in 2014 and 47% of the attacked organizations are participating in security consortiums to share information on threats and counter measures.
With the emergence of new data sources such as social media, mobile applications, and sensor-equipped “Internet of Things” networks, enterprises applications today are adopting disruptive technologies to manage the higher volume of information; specially when the data itself arrives at much faster rates and is more complex and dynamic than existing transactional sources.
The scalable storage, powerful data processing and embedded analytics engines allows you to easily access, enrich and analyze variety and volume of big data to deliver real-time insights into areas such as operational performance, customer satisfaction, and competitor behavior.
