Cyberattacks are basically a way of life for most businesses now

For modern businesses, cyberattacks are essentially an everyday instance, with an ever-increasing number of organizations say they are facing such crises almost on a daily basis.

This is according to a new report from Dell surveying 1,000 IT decision-makers from around the world, working in a wide range of public and private sector industries, with the respondents saying their firms experienced higher levels of natural and modern disasters than in previous years, resulting in more data loss, more downtime, and higher recovery costs. 

Of all those disasters, cyberattacks were the biggest ones, as they took up almost half (48%) of all recorded incidents. Furthermore, they were up from 37% a mere year ago.

Fewer security vendors, more protection

Elsewhere, the 2022 Dell Global Data Protection Index (GDPI) report noted almost nine in ten firms (86%) experienced at least one cybersecurity-related disruption in the last 12 months. 

Firms that suffered data loss have had more than a million dollars ($1.06 million) in downtime costs, up from $959,000 just a year ago. Firms that were prevented access to their data (as opposed to losing access completely) have lost roughly $660,000, on average. 

Previously, to combat the threat, organizations would hire multiple data protection vendors. Now, Dell claims in the report, the tides are turning as businesses realize they’re more secure with fewer partners. In fact, 85% of organizations that use multiple data protection vendors now “see a benefit” in reducing this number. Firms with a single vendor have had 34% fewer costs recovering from a cybersecurity incident. 

Besides culling unnecessary partners, businesses are also increasingly turning towards Zero Trust architecture to stay secure. The report found 91% of organizations are either aware of, or are planning to deploy, a Zero Trust architecture. Still, just a quarter (23%) are deploying a Zero Trust model, while 12% are already fully deployed. 

Zero Trust is a cybersecurity model that changes how firms handle security. Instead of relying exclusively on perimeter defenses, Zero Trust invokes a more proactive strategy that only allows known and authorized traffic through a system of boundaries and data pipelines.

Android 12 will bring the end of third-party share menus

Apps like Sharedr will no longer be able to replace the default share dialog. What you need to know Third-party apps will not be allowed to replace the Android share menu in Android 12. You will no longer be able to set apps like Sharedr as the default. Google says it never intended to allow third-party apps to replace the official Sharesheet. One of Android 12 's biggest highlights is the new Material You design language, which brings major changes to nearly every key UI component. Android 12 will also introduce a major change to the way users share links and photos, according to a report from XDA Developers . On Android 11 , Google allows third-party apps and OEMs to fully customize the Android Sharesheet, which is the reason why the share dialog differs from one app to another. It is even possible to completely bypass the official Android Sharesheet by setting an app like Sharedr as the default Sharesheet. In addition to providing a more consistent experience, Sharedr

The new Amazon Fire HD 10 is growing into a viable productivity tablet

An already good entertainment device finally gets productive. Amazon has been busy churning out a whole host of new devices and upgrades to existing devices over the past several months. Earlier this year, I reviewed the excellent Echo Buds (2nd Gen) , and even the fantastic Echo Frames (2nd Gen), have since been updated to include options with sunglass and blue light filtering lenses . In early May, we also learned that Amazon was refreshing the Echo Show 5 and Echo Show 8 and that it was even rolling out its first Echo Show for kids . While newer and more novel products like the ones mentioned above often see a faster update cycle, more mature devices like Kindle e-readers and Fire tablets go longer between new versions. In fact, the last update to the Fire HD 10 line was back in 2019, so, understandably, Amazon was ready to reinvigorate its flagship tablet. Not only did it update the specs and colors on the Fire HD 10, but it also gave us a second version in the Fire HD 10 Plu

Google Announces Support for Account Passkeys

Google today announced that it is introducing support for passkeys, providing an easier and more secure login method for Google accounts. Apple integrated passkeys into iOS with the launch of iOS 16 , and it is also available in iPadOS 16.1 and later as well as macOS Ventura . Passkeys are an industry standard developed by the FIDO Alliance and the World Wide Web Consortium, so Google's passkey integration will work on Apple devices as well as on other devices that support the feature. As Google notes: Last year — alongside FIDO Alliance, Apple and Microsoft — we announced we would begin work to support passkeys on our platform as an easier and more secure alternative to passwords. And today, ahead of World Password Day, we've begun rolling out support for passkeys across Google Accounts on all major platforms. They'll be an additional option that people can use to sign in, alongside passwords, 2-Step Verification (2SV), etc. Passkeys are both easier to use and more
