5 Futuristic Ways to Order Online

Ah, online ordering. Who doesn’t love it? Online ordering makes the ordering process easier, improves order accuracy, keeps costs transparent, and more. And the public agrees: a whopping 86% of consumers report using online ordering services at least monthly, and a third are using it more than they did a year ago.

One of the biggest segments of online ordering is food delivery, which is expected to grow 12% each year, for the next five years (and beyond, we’re sure). In such a booming industry (online food delivery alone is expected to be a $137 billion market by 2023), it comes as no surprise that new ways to order on the web are popping up left and right. Let’s explore five futuristic ways to order online – that are already happening.

  1. Order by Tweet

Did you know that on top of catching up on your daily news and memes, you can also order a pizza on Twitter? Domino’s Pizza allows customers to make a “pizza profile” on its online delivery service, create an “Easy Order” (which is like a pizza speed dial), link the pizza profile to their Twitter account, and order simply by tweeting a pizza emoji to Dominos’ Twitter account. Dominos also allows customers to order via Google Home, Alexa, Slack, Facebook Messenger, and more. Ordering via social networks is an interesting thing, and there is certainly already a market for social media-driven online ordering.

2. Order Through Virtual Assistant

You can ask Alexa for the forecast, to play your favorite song … or to order your lunch. Companies such as Just Eat, which has 24 million customers across the globe, are using virtual assistant technology to further modernize and personalize the food ordering process.

Per Storm Fagan, head of product at Just Eat, “It’s as simple as having a conversation with your partner and you’re talking about what takeaway to order of an evening and, as natural as that conversation is, a voice assistant like Amazon Alexa will join in with your conversation. It will know how many people are in your home and what sort of food you like, and they can start recommending food options to you. Rather than us having to go to a website, it’s almost as if Just Eat will exist in your home with you.”

3. Order via Smartwatch

Smartwatches are no longer just for early adopters: in 2018 alone, 141 million of them were sold. With such a big adoption comes another wave of innovation and new features. One example of this is OrderUp/GrubHub, which allows a customer to place an order, track delivery status, and check estimated time of arrival, all through their watch. Expect to hear more about smartwatch functionality in the near future – the market is expected to grow to $73 billion by 2022.

4. Order from Car

Cars aren’t just for driving you to places where you can buy things – now you can buy things directly through your car! Take General Motors, for example. The automaker has launched GM Marketplace in millions of its cars, providing car owners the option to order food and beverages from Starbucks, Dunkin’ Donuts, Wingstop and more – all through the press of a button. Because the vehicles that feature GM Marketplace also have Wi-Fi connectivity, when drivers place an order through their car, it automatically will locate the nearest store and direct the driver how to get there. Although the service is predominantly foodservice-based, GM says there’s a huge potential for retailers to cash in on orders placed through cars.

5. Order with Eyes

Perhaps the most far fetched-sounding method of them all, believe it or not, you can order with your eyeballs. In conjunction with Tobii Technology, Pizza Hut developed Subconscious Menu, which tracks customer eye movement, and suggests pizza ingredients based on what a customer’s eyes focused on. Creepy? A little bit. Efficient? You betcha: the menu can suggest just the right pie for you, out of nearly 5,000 combinations, in 2.5 seconds.

mcafee cloud workload security

McAfee Cloud Workload Security

As corporate data centers evolve, more workloads are migrated to cloud environments every day. Most organizations have a hybrid environment with a mixture of on-premises and cloud workloads, including containers, which are constantly in flux. This introduces a security challenge as cloud environments (private and public) require new approaches and tools for protection. Organizations need central visibility of all cloud workloads with complete defense against the risk of misconfiguration, malware, and data breaches.

McAfee® Cloud Workload Security (McAfee® CWS) automates the discovery and defense of elastic workloads and containers to eliminate blind spots, deliver advanced threat defense, and simplify multicloud management. McAfee provides protection that makes it possible for a single, automated policy to effectively secure your workloads as they transition through your virtual private, public, and multicloud environments, enabling operational excellence for your cybersecurity teams.

Modern Workload Security: Use Cases

Automated discovery

Unmanaged workload instances and Docker containers create gaps in security management and can give attackers the foothold they need to infiltrate your organization. McAfee CWS discovers elastic workload instances and Docker containers across Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, OpenStack, and VMware environments. It also continuously monitors for new instances. You gain a centralized and complete view across environments and eliminate operational and security blind spots that lead to risk exposure.

Gaining insights into network traffic

By utilizing native network traffic provided from the cloud workloads, McAfee CWS is able to augment and apply intelligence from McAfee® Global Threat Intelligence (McAfee® GTI) data feeds. The enriched information is able to display properties such as risk score, geo-location, and other important network information. This information can be used to create automated remediation actions to protect workloads.

Integration into deployment frameworks

McAfee CWS creates deployment scripts to allow the automatic deployment and management of the McAfee® agent to cloud workloads. These scripts allow integration into tools such as Chef, Puppet, and other DevOps frameworks for deployment of the McAfee agent to workloads running by cloud providers, such as AWS and Microsoft Azure.

Consolidate events

McAfee CWS allows organizations to use a single interface to manage numerous countermeasure technologies for both on-premises and cloud environments. This also includes integration into additional technologies, like AWS GuardDuty, McAfee® Policy Auditor, and McAfee® Network Security Platform.

  • Administrators can leverage the continuous monitoring and unauthorized behaviors identified by AWS GuardDuty, providing yet another level of threat visibility. This integration allows McAfee CWS customers to view GuardDuty events, which include network connections, port probes, and DNS requests for EC2 instances, directly within the McAfee CWS console.
  • McAfee Policy Auditor performs agent-based checks against known or user-defined configuration audits for compliance such as Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS), Center for Internet Security Benchmark (CIS Benchmark), or other industry standards. McAfee CWS reports any failed audits for instant visibility into misconfiguration for workloads in the cloud.
  • McAfee Network Security Platform is another cloud security platform that performs network inspection for traffic in hybrid as well as AWS and Microsoft Azure environments. It performs deeper packet-level inspections against network traffic, and it reports any discrepancies or alerts through McAfee CWS. This provides single-pane visibility against multicloud environments for remediation.

Enforcement of network security group policies

McAfee CWS permits users and administrators to create baseline security group policies and audit the policies that are running on the workloads against these baselines. Any deviations or changes from the baseline can create an alert in the McAfee CWS console for remediation. Administrators also can manually configure native network security groups from McAfee CWS, which enables them to directly control cloud-native security group policies.

What Sets McAfee Cloud Workload Security Apart: Key Features
and Technologies

Cloud-native build support

Using McAfee CWS, customers can consolidate management of multiple public and private clouds in a single management console, including AWS EC2, Microsoft Azure Virtual Machines, OpenStack, and VMware Vcenter. McAfee CWS can import and allow customers to run in the cloud with new cloud-native build support for Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (Amazon EKS) and Microsoft Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS).

Simple, centralized management

A single console provides consistent security policy and centralized management in multicloud environments across servers, virtual servers, and cloud workloads. Administrators can also create multiple role-based permissions in McAfee® ePolicy Orchestrator® (McAfee ePO™) software, enabling them to define user roles more specifically and appropriately.

Network visualization with microsegmentation

Cloud-native network visualization, prioritized risk alerting, and micro-segmentation capabilities deliver awareness and control to prevent lateral attack progression within virtualized environments and from external malicious sources. Single-click shutdown or quarantine capability help alleviate the potential for configuration errors and increases the efficiency of remediation.

Superior virtualization security

McAfee CWS suite protects your private cloud virtual machines from malware using McAfee® Management for Optimized Virtual Environments AntiVirus (McAfee® MOVE AntiVirus). And it does this without straining underlying resources or requiring additional operating costs. McAfee MOVE AntiVirus allows organizations to offload security to dedicated virtual machines for optimized scanning of their virtualized environment.

Users gain anti-malware protection via McAfee® Endpoint Security for Servers. This solution can intelligently schedule resource-intensive tasks, such as on-demand scanning, to avoid impact to critical business processes.

Tag and automate workload security

Assign the right policies to all workloads automatically with the ability to import AWS and Microsoft Azure tag information into McAfee ePO software and assign policies based on those tags. Existing AWS and Microsoft
Azure tags synchronize with McAfee ePO software tags so they’re automatically managed.

Auto-remediation

The user defines McAfee ePO software policies. If McAfee CWS finds a system that is not protected by the McAfee ePO software security policies, and it is found to contain a malware or virus, this system will automatically be quarantined.

Adaptive threat protection

McAfee CWS integrates comprehensive countermeasures, including machine learning, application containment, virtual machine-optimized anti-malware, whitelisting, file integrity monitoring, and micro-segmentation that protect your workloads from threats like ransomware and targeted attacks. McAfee® Advanced Threat Protection defeats sophisticated attacks that have never been encountered before
by applying machine learning techniques to convict malicious payloads based on their code attributes and behavior.

Application control

Application whitelisting prevents both known and unknown attacks by allowing only trusted applications to run while blocking any unauthorized payloads. McAfee® Application Control provides dynamic protection based on local and global threat intelligence, as well as the ability to keep systems up to date, without disabling security features.

File integrity monitoring (FIM)

McAfee® File Integrity Monitoring continuously monitors to ensure your system files and directories have not been compromised by malware, hackers, or malicious insiders. Comprehensive audit details provide information about how files on server workloads are changing and alert you to the presence of an active attack.

What Sets McAfee Cloud Workload Security Apart: Key Features
and Technologies

McAfee CWS ensures that you maintain the highest quality of security while taking advantage of the cloud. It covers multiple protection technologies, simplifies security management, and prevents cyberthreats from impacting your business—so you can focus on growing it. Below is a feature comparison of the available package options.

mcafee five ways to rethink your endpoint protection strategy

Five Ways to Rethink Your Endpoint Protection Strategy

Device security is no longer about traditional antivirus versus next-generation endpoint protection. The truth is you need a layered and integrated defense that protects your entire digital terrain and all types of devices—traditional and nontraditional. ESG Senior Principal Analyst Jon Oltsik frames it this way: “… endpoint security should no longer be defined as antivirus software. No disrespect to tried-and-true AV, but endpoint security now spans a continuum that includes advanced prevention technologies, endpoint security controls, and advanced detection/response tools.”

In today’s survival of the fitte st landscape , he re are five ways to not just survive , but thrive:

1. More tools do not make for a better defense.

Scrambling to adapt to the evolving landscape, many security teams have resorted to bolting on the latest “best-of-breed” point solutions. While each solution may bring a new capability to the table, it’s important to look at your overall ecosystem and how these different defenses work together.

There are serious shortfalls in deploying disparate, multivendor endpoint security technologies that don’t collaborate with each other. Because point solutions have limited visibility and see only what they can see, the burden of connecting the dots falls on you. Adversaries are quick to take advantage of the windows of opportunity these manual processes create, evading defenses or slipping through the cracks unnoticed.

2. It’s not about any one type of countermeasure.

As a never-ending array of “next-generation” solutions started to emerge and flood the marketplace, you were likely told more than once that antivirus isn’t enough and what you need to do is switch to next-gen. In reality, it’s not about achieving a next-generation approach or finding the best use for antivirus. It’s really about implementing a holistic device security strategy that connects and coordinates an array of defenses. This includes signature-based defense (which eliminates 50% of the attack noise—allowing algorithmic approaches to run more aggressively with less false alarms), plus exploit protection, reputations, machine learning, ongoing behavioral analytics, and roll-back remediation to reverse the effects of ransomware and other threats.

Each device type has its own security needs and capabilities. You need to be able to augment built-in device security with the right combination of advanced protection technologies. The key to being resilient is to deliver inclusive, intelligently layered countermeasures— and antivirus is a tool that has its place in with benefits and limitations just like all countermeasures do in this unified, layered approach to device security.

3. All devices are not created equal.

Today, “endpoint” has taken on a whole new meaning. The term now encompasses traditional servers, PCs, laptops mobile devices (both BYOD and corporate- issued), cloud environments, and IoT devices like printers, scanners, point-of-sale handhelds, and even wearables.

Adversaries don’t just target one type of device—they launch organized campaigns across your entire environment to establish a foothold and then move laterally. It’s important to harness the defenses built into modern devices while extending their overall posture with advanced capabilities. Some endpoints, like Internet of Things (IoT) devices, lack built-in protection and will need a full-stack defense. Ultimately, the goal is to not duplicate anything and not leave anything exposed.

4. All you need is a single management console.

If you’ve been deploying bolted-on endpoint security technologies or several new, next-generation solutions, you may be seeing that each solution typically comes with its own management console. Learning and juggling multiple consoles can overtax your already stretched- thin security team and make them less effective, as they are unable to see your entire environment and the security posture of all your devices in one place. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Practitioners can more quickly glean the insights they need to act when they can view all the policies, alerts, and raw data from a centralized, single-pane-of-glass console.

5. Mobile devices are among the most vulnerable.

Mobile devices are an easy target for attackers and provide a doorway to corporate networks. We’re seeing more app-based attacks, targeted network-based attacks, and direct device attacks that take advantage of low-level footholds. For this reason, it’s essential to include mobile devices in your security strategy and protect them as you would any other endpoint.

veeam-data-protection-for-sharepoint-2

Veeam Data Protection for Sharepoint

Microsoft Office 365 adoption is bigger than ever. When Veeam introduced Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 in November 2016, it became an immense success and Veeam has continued building on top of that. When we released version 1.5 in 2017, we added automation and scalability improvements which became a tremendous success for service providers and larger deployments. Today, Veeam is announcing v2 which takes our solution to a completely new level by adding support for Microsoft SharePoint and Microsoft OneDrive for Business. Download it right now!

Data protection for SharePoint

By adding support for SharePoint, Veeam extends its granular restore capabilities known from the Veeam Explorer for Microsoft SharePoint into Office 365. This allows you to restore individual items – documents, calendars, libraries and lists – as well as a complete SharePoint site when needed. With the new release, Veeam can also help you back up your data if you are still in the migration process and are still using Microsoft SharePoint on premises or running in a hybrid scenario.

Data protection for OneDrive for Business

The most requested feature was support for OneDrive for Business as more and more companies are using it to share files, folders and OneNote books internally. With Veeam Explorer for Microsoft OneDrive for Business, you can granularly restore any item available in your OneDrive folder (including Microsoft OneNote notebooks). You have the option to perform an in-place restore, restore to another OneDrive user or another folder in OneDrive, export files as an original or zip file, and if you get hit by a ransomware attack and your complete OneDrive folder gets encrypted Veeam can perform a full restore as well.

Enhancements

Besides the introduction of new platform support, there are also several enhancements added.

Major ease-of-use and backup flexibility improvements with a newly redesigned job wizard for easier and more flexible selection of Exchange Online, OneDrive for Business and SharePoint Online objects. Making it easier than ever to set-up, search and maintain visibility into your Office 365 data. Granularly search, scale and perform management of backup jobs for tens-of-thousands of Office 365 users!

Restore data located in Microsoft Teams! You can protect Microsoft Teams when the underlying storage of the Teams data is within SharePoint Online, Exchange Online or OneDrive for Business. While data can be protected and restored, the Teams tabs and channels cannot. After restoring the item, it can however be reattached manually.

Compare items with Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange. It is now possible to perform a comparison on items with your production mailbox to see which properties are missing and only restore those without restoring the full file.

As with the 1.5 release, everything is also available for automation by either leveraging PowerShell or the Restful API which now fully supports OneDrive for Business and SharePoint.

Another enhancement is the possibility to change the GUI color as you like. This option made its way into Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 after being introduced in Veeam Backup & Replication.

Starting with version 2, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 is now able to automatically check for updates, so you can rest assured you are always up to date.

And finally, the log collection wizard has been updated as it now allows you to collect logs for support in case you run into an issue, as well as configure extended logging for all components.
