Driven by surging international demand, the Australian-owned SecuraLive antivirus brand today unveils a major extension of its product range to protect Windows PCs, Macs and even VPNs.
SecuraLive, which is owned by Adelaide-based PCRange, has notched up strong international sales since it was launched in June last year, including major contracts in the US and Asia.
This week at CeBIT in Sydney, where PCRange is an exhibitor, SecuraLive will display a new version of its SecuraLive AntiVirus scanning engine, an overhauled user interface, a brand new VPN (Virtual Private Network) product and the launch of Mac versions of SecuraLive. More details are available at www.securalive.com.
PCRange CEO Raaj Menon said the strong overseas demand was from companies wanting to re-badge SecuraLive. “We’re signing deals worth hundreds of thousands of dollars a year to white label SecuraLive,” he said.
An historic Adelaide mansion has undergone a multi-million-dollar metamorphosis that has transformed the heritage-listed 19th century pile into a 21st century landmark.
The property - formerly housing the Parkin Theological College and Pepper Studios - is a distinctive visual and historic element in Kent Town, a fringe suburb east of Adelaide’s CBD.
Constructed in 1865 of bluestone and sandstone rubble with brick quoins, the original two-storey building contains picturesque detailing with a facade of profiled brick, scalloped barges and a cantilevered balcony.
When Adelaide-based technology entrepreneur Simon Hackett paid $3.5 million for the property in 2012, he decided to restore it to its former glory while bringing it aesthetically, structurally and functionally into the 21st century.
“It is such a beautiful property that had been extended and maintained quite haphazardly over the years,” said Simon. “We wanted these renovations to make this an Adelaide landmark building for the next 100 years.”
Centrify overnight announced the launch of Centrify Privilege Service (CPS), the industry’s first cloud-based identity management solution to provide security, visibility and control of privileged accounts.
Essentially “the keys to the kingdom,” privileged accounts provide elevated access to an organisation’s most critical data, applications, systems and network devices. As more enterprises embrace the cloud, privileged accounts increasingly lie outside the corporate perimeter and are frequently shared by both internal IT and often remote third parties such as contractors and vendors.
Thus, it’s no surprise that privileged accounts are top targets for hackers and malicious insiders alike.
Australia’s award-winning flight planning software developer AvSoft has substantially enhanced its AvPlan EFB (Electronic Flight Bag) iPad app with an arsenal of new features.
As well as Jeppesen FliteDeck Integration and a more complete picture of changing weather patterns, AvPlan EFB version 5.0 delivers audible cockpit notifications, a refuelling price database and new calculators for the lowest safe flying altitude and pre-planned gliding ranges.
AvPlan EFB, used by thousands of professional and amateur pilots in Australia, New Zealand and the US, is developed in Melbourne by AvSoft, a privately owned company that last month won the Aerospace Australia Ltd Civil Industry National Innovation Award for 2015.
AvSoft CEO Bevan Anderson said AvPlan EFB’s latest free software upgrade would benefit subscribing pilots in all three countries. “This is a huge release, which has features coming out of its ears,” he said.
iiNet reports that 11,300 NSW premises are among 21,000 nationally that this week hit a Deadline Day for disconnecting their copper telephone lines as part of the compulsory migration to the NBN.
This Friday, April 17, about 9600 homes and businesses in the Western Sydney suburbs of Rookwood, Lidcombe, Jamisontown, Windsor, South Windsor and Bligh Park and another 1700 at Sawtell near Coffs Harbour reach the copper disconnection deadline. This means anyone who has not placed an order for an NBN service will have their phone lines disconnected within 10 working days.
This month, a total of 21,000 premises in Sydney, Melbourne, Toowoomba, Adelaide's Southern Vales area, Perth and Townsville will reach this NBN deadline.
Since May last year, NBN Co has progressively announced areas in Australia that have reached the deadline for ageing copper telephone networks to be disconnected permanently as part of the move to the NBN. More than 140,000 premises throughout Australia are scheduled to hit the disconnection deadline in the first six months of this year - nearly three times as many as in all of last year.
