Passwords have been present in information technology since the earliest days. However in the past few years’ hackers have developed password cracking tools which are powerful enough to crack common passwords in minutes. Today, eight-character passwords can be cracked by consumer password recovery software in under an hour, and more experienced hackers armed with rainbow tables and other free tools can crack 14-character passwords – including alpha-numeric passwords with special characters – in less than three minutes. This makes it imperative for technology users to adopt longer, stronger passwords.

icomply has recently partnered with TIS on overhauling the security system of Boots UK. The central security control centre at Boots had long since been in need of an update, with many of the current analogue hardware becoming unfit for purpose and difficult to gather data from.

Vigilance can report that Checkpoint Systems, Inc. has revealed its new RFID labels that are certified by ARC at the Auburn University RFID Lab for four apparel categories, including footwear, in order to streamline source tagging.

Phishing emails are without a doubt one of the biggest security issues consumers and businesses face today. Cybercriminals no longer send out thousands of emails at random hoping to get a handful of hits, today they create highly targeted phishing emails which are tailored to suit their recipients. While these emails can take more time and effort on the hackers’ side, there is no doubting the fact that provide a much bigger return on investment (ROI).

London, UK: The Tech Trailblazers Awards, the first annual awards program for enterprise information technology startups, today unveils the third edition category winners – identifying them as the ones to watch for the year ahead.
