Unfortunately, 2014 was another challenging year for IT  security professionals. In January everyone was still reeling from the Target breach, but as 2014 dawned there were immediately breaches announced that--like Target--were so large the figures were difficult to comprehend. P. F. Chang’s and Neiman Marcus had been victimized by hackers in 2013 too, though this wasn’t revealed until 2014. Then there was the roll call of new breaches: Home Depot, and Michael’s, and JP Morgan … and each of these breaches compromised the personal information of millions of customers. And these were just the huge hack jobs—there were many, many smaller breaches, such as the attack on the US Postal Service that compromised the data of 800,000 employees.

Somehow we were all able to live with just one gigabyte, but in the years since then we’ve certainly managed to acquire and generate much more data. In fact, even the relatively generous amount available on the average hard drive may not be enough, and many of us have had to find imaginative ways of storing our ever-growing mass of data. According to IDC over the next decade, the number of servers managing the world's data stores will grow by ten times. The study also reported that unstructured information - such as files, email and video - will account for 90% of all data created over the next decade.

The list of companies and organizations around the world that have been hacked is long and growing.  But when JP Morgan was added to the list, that showed that no system is 100% secure. One would presume that one of the world’s largest financial institutions, in charge of handling accounts belonging to governments and corporations, would have the world’s best cybersecurity money can buy. If hackers can defeat that then they can defeat anything.

Demystifying the 's' in https - How SSL and TLS work!

HTTPS FILTERING, network security

As the adoption of SSL enabled websites becomes more prevalent, with major providers such as Facebook, Flickr and Google now defaulting to HTTPS, the need to be able to analyze SSL traffic is a necessary requirement.  Most web filtering solutions allow you to block entire websites, for example if you want to block the whole of Facebook. However if you want more granular filtering on HTTPS sites like Facebook, then you need to read the URL itself, which is protected by SSL.
