5 Ways Hosting Providers Prepare Clients for PCI 3.0
11/21/2013 9:34:12 AM
The introduction of new requirements as a result of the rollout of PCI 3.0 by the PCI Security Standards Council will require organizations that accept payment cards to take another look at PCI DSS. Additional mandates will increase the care IT security and compliance pros must take in ensuring segmentation methods to reduce PCI scope really work, to do a better job reviewing security logs and to institute more robust physical access control. As both enterprises and SaaS providers who service them address the new version of PCI, they may find a surprising ally in a well-chosen hosting provider. A knowledgeable hosting provider well-acquainted with these requirements, along with experience talking to many QSAs about their interpretations of the standard, can be a godsend to organizations left scratching their heads over the standards.
FOTA Best Practices
11/8/2013 4:25:19 PM
The volume of FOTA usage is increasing significantly as more and more updates are performed successfully every year on more and more device types.

In fact, consumers eagerly anticipate new firmware releases and become frustrated if their device doesn't receive timely updates. News about new software updates delivered over the air are published daily in telecom media channels, and when it comes to major versions of Android or iOS, even in the mainstream media.

In this white paper, Red Bend Software describes five steps for successful FOTA implementation, leveraging Red Bend's vast experience in providing FOTA to nearly 1,500 different device models over the last 10 years.
