Google and IBM to jointly address developer security challenges with Grafeas

Google and IBM recently joined forces to create and open source the Grafeas project, with an aim to provide developers a structured way of auditing and governing the modern software supply chains. Grafeas provides an open API that collects and aggregates the metadata generated at various stages of software supply chain.

IBM has an in-built Vulnerability Advisor into its Container service as a part of DevOps process that scans the container images and detects software package vulnerability and poor software configurations.

Google’s new HSTS list to tighten up browser security

Google ramps up G Suite security console

Google recently announced a new security feature – OAuth apps whitelisting, for its G Suite customers. The feature will provide better visibility and power in hands of the customers, allowing them to define how their data is being used by third-party apps. Google added the feature into its G Suite security controls with an effort to improve the data access permissions and protect user data from any phishing attacks. A few months back, Gmail users were hit by a phishing scam, consisting an email claiming to be an invite for Google Docs. Though actually, it was a hideous act to prompt users to give access permissions to the third-party apps to use their personal data. With the new feature, Google tries to prevent such phishing attacks in future by ensuring better security level for the users...

“.IN.NET Provides Businesses and Individuals With Good Quality Domain Names”- Neha Naik, .IN.NET

Internet in India is reaching small towns and the lower rungs of the economic ladder very rapidly, bridging geographical barriers and exposing consumers to the market more effectively than ever before. Brick-and-mortar stores can no longer be sufficient with the significant expansion in the variety of products available online. This growing digital influence, currently affecting $30 billion of urban consumer spending, makes getting online not an option but a necessity. However, most Indian businesses looking to get a website face a roadblock on the very first, and probably the most important step of getting online – unavailability of the domain name of their choice. With .COM mostly exhausted and .IN depleting fast, quality domain names are limited and SMBs have to settle for long si...

Google Reader’s Death- Not the Wisest Move by Google!

Google is retiring Google Reader as a part of the overall pruning of its services. The doors of one of the most sought after services by Google will be closing on 1st July 2013, eight years after its birth. A company official cites the declining usage of the service and increasing popularity of Twitter as the major reasons for its planned retirement. For the uninitiated, Google Reader amasses feeds in RSS (or rich site summary) which is a format that creates stream from dynamic web content and provides people with the comfort and luxury of discovering the content and websites of interest and keep a tab over them. Many news aggregating services like Twitter are not as useful, as argued by many. It’s evident that the “social” aspects like Google+, Facebook etc. are being pushed u...

8 Findings on Google’s 7-Result SERPs [Study]

In August, Google began showing seven search results, rather than 10, for certain queries. SEOMoz recently published a series of insights on Google’s new 7-result SERPs, gleaned from data collected since Google rolled out the new layout. Among the most interesting conclusions: 7-result SERPs can actually become 14-result SERPs when Google blends local search results (in a pack of 7) with organic search results (also in a pack of 7). Rarely, images can comprise the first “result” which consume about as much vertical territory as four normal text-based results. On average, about one-fifth of all tracked queries (10,000 keywords) by SEOMoz yield 7-result SERPs. When the SERPs include a #1 listing with expanded sitelinks, it’s almost certain there will be 7 results on the first page. About 80 ...
