UK startup woos SMBs with email encryption

By John E. Dunn, Techworld
11 October 2007

A new UK security startup, Securecoms, has launched an email security system it is convinced will turn around the fortunes of encryption in the small and medium business (SMB) sector.

In a market that has defeated the best efforts of larger rivals, the company reckons its hardware-based approach to the technology will overcome the reluctance of companies to invest in a technology often seen as difficult to manage and complex to use.

Claimed to be configurable in minutes, the company’s Secure-mail is a Linux-based 100Mbits/s gateway that sits between the customer’s mail server and the Internet connection, automatically encrypting and decrypting incoming and outgoing email to other Secure-mail users.

Published: April 18, 2008 7:17 AM PDT

U.S. telecommunications giant AT&T has claimed that, without investment, the Internet's current network architecture will reach the limits of its capacity by 2010.

Speaking at a Westminster eForum on Web 2.0 this week in London, Jim Cicconi, vice president of legislative affairs for AT&T, warned that the current systems that constitute the Internet will not be able to cope with the increasing amounts of video and user-generated content being uploaded.

"The surge in online content is at the center of the most dramatic changes affecting the Internet today," he said. "In three years' time, 20 typical households will generate more traffic than the entire Internet today."

Startup AdReady Dreams Big About Things Small (And Medium-Sized)

adreadylogoDoes the name AdReady ring a bell? No? Well, if all goes as planned, in a few years it will. For everyone.

A Seattle-based startup that is – you guessed it! – all about online advertising, AdReady wants to be big. Really big. Google big. And it intends to reach such a seemingly unattainable target by thinking small and simple.

Okay, maybe we should clarify things here somewhat. We don’t mean to say AdReady wants to become the next Google. AdReady doesn’t want to dominate the search world. That wouldn’t be a sensible strategy to pursue at present. (Unless it was making purposely-comedic attempt.) Rather, it hopes to make itself into the next Google Ads - albeit with lots more color. It wants to make the manufacture and distribution of graphical spots a wholly uninvolved and elementary process.

Employee With Entrepreneur Mindsets

BY TOLIK ON MARCH 27, 2009

As an employee, I think a good strategy is to get a job, but at the same time try to look for opportunity and ideas that can generate big income. The point is not to limit ourself in the fix salary that we are getting now. Think of the fix salary an income that can be use to cover our daily expenses. At the same time, keep ourselves open to the opportunities or ideas that can make us rich.

Although I am working as an employee, but I always try my best to adopt the entrepreneur mind set. It is important for an employee to think like an entrepreneur. This way, you program yourself to think out of the box. You will do more than an ordinary employee do. You will always do your best and be outstanding.
