A recent survey reported 87% of teens worldwide agree- Facebook is dead. While Facebook disagrees and the statistics suggest Facebook is anything but dying, it has lost 100% of it’s “cool factor”, per ZuGo creator Jens (pronounced Yens) Peterson.

Peterson, a teen himself (19) has been building successful tech businesses since he was 13 years old. The first was a social media marketing business (managing social media pages for small businesses) which earned the young teen enough money to indulge in his love of dirt bikes. “I was too young to drive so rather than a car collection, I started buying dirt bikes.”

By the age of 15, Peterson had expanded into designing and building apps and websites for some of the same businesses he marketed for. Along the way, he became a dedicated student in the art of building social media followings. He became so adept at doing so, he sold not one, but two Vine accounts to a prominent ad agency who paid him generously for the audience he had so masterfully stitched together.

Private Cloud VS Public Cloud: What Is the Right Choice for Your Business

Private cloud computing is a form of cloud computing that is used within a corporate firewall, and is controlled by a company’s IT department. Private cloud computing therefore provides greater data security, however the company also takes on the possible risk of natural disasters such as server crashes, workplace fire, or water damage.

Public cloud computing involves the use of a third party service to utilize their servers or data storage facilities as an alternative to the cost of supercomputers or the pitfalls of private cloud computing systems. The third party service also takes on the risks associated with having and maintaining the servers.

Differences between Public cloud computing and Private cloud computing

Private clouds involve a dedicated, in-house IT department setting up and managing the cloud hardware. This may be costly for the company to upscale, in the case of diminishing performance. On the other hand, public clouds work on a “pay-as-you-need” basis, whereby a company can select which data storage and server would be the best fit for the company. This also allows companies to upscale at a relatively lower cost than that of private clouds, as the hosting company needs to maintain up to date services.

Another difference between private clouds and public clouds is that public clouds follow certain compliance procedures on the types of data that can be stored and distributed within a company, whereas private clouds may distribute data freely and store data as they please because they do not need to comply with the policies that are set out.

The Importance of Application Code Security


As technology continues to surge, applications and software have become increasingly complex, rising to meet the demand of our growing virtual world. Is cybersecurity keeping up with the application standard? Risks and threats of risks to security should be a concern to everyone creating applications and software. Although code writers do run tests on their own programs; typically, their priority is the functionality of the program and not necessarily the security. Security professionals are faced with the challenge of convincing code developers to implement application security.

Is the application code secured against accessibility?

First and foremost, are the code developers able to protect their intellectual property as they are writing the code?

Secondly, once the application is in use, encrypting the code controls which user has access, creating protection against hackers.  They physical environment where the code is stored is also worth considering: an isolated environment protects who has physical access.
