South Africa’s skills shortage is preventing the country from achieving the 5% annual GDP growth that is our only real chance of making a dent in poverty. In a 2018 report, Pew Research estimated that some 900 000 people born in South Africa were living abroad in 2017. The firm indicates these are mostly skilled professionals. All is not lost, however, as independent telco ICTGlobe.com believes technology will continue to help solve South Africa’s myriad challenges. “From anti-crime cameras deployed with great effect in our cities, to world-class computational systems that ensure we run better elections than much of the developed world, information and communications technology (ICT) is becoming the bedrock of our society upon which future SA growth will be based,” says Riaan van Stryp, ICTGlobe.com General Manager. Much of this growth, however, will depend on local companies’ success in automating ICT systems. “By automating, you’re essentially freeing up human resources to focus on their own growth and development,” explains Mr Van Stryp. “Business automation is the catalyst to upskill entry-level staff. Why have a human being repeatedly undertaking the same routine tasks when a machine will do, leaving the person to be developed by the organisation into a much more valuable, and fulfilled, resource?”, asks Mr Van Stryp. When it comes to the regular ordering of ICT services by reseller SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises) that on-sell them to business and end-user consumers, automation really comes into its own. This is particularly true when the reseller knows what it needs and can easily place these regular orders via an online system. “A few clicks can cut out unnecessary quotations and paperwork that only serve to waste time and money,” Mr Van Stryp says. Automating the ordering system frees up the sales team to focus on customer service and training new resellers to focus on the sale of services without getting tied up in manual . . .

Friday, 12th April 2019: Kaspersky Lab has launched a creative marketing campaign in collaboration with SLAVA creative agency, driven by the talented Alberto Belli as a film director. The videos are implied to deliver a simple yet humorous and emotional story about complex solution for business, and thus to increase brand awareness and reach potential customers. The campaign has been specifically designed to support the company’s flagship product in the corporate segment – Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business. “With this campaign we demonstrated that marketing videos created to support complex corporate products should not necessarily be boring. Our creative campaign appeals to everyday people who work in ordinary office spaces, drink coffee and celebrate colleagues’ birthdays – yet reminds them of the critical need for corporate security for a ‘safe’ working environment,” comments Peter Aleshkin, Head of Consumer Marketing in the Middle East, Turkey and Africa at Kaspersky Lab. “We wanted to develop a campaign that would fully promote the idea that there is nothing else to hack when the business is protected by Kaspersky Lab. We believe that we have succeeded in that and have created unique and remarkable videos, which are engaging and funny.” We are pleased with this opportunity to collaborate with Kaspersky Lab, which has allowed us to deploy a concept illustrating the creative potential of our advertising network. Large technological companies do not often create communication without boring numbers and statistics. The Kaspersky Lab team from the very start was keen to create something that would really surprise and involve people and provoke their emotions. That’s why it was especially interesting for us at SLAVA to work on the project. We are more than happy with the results. Alberty Belli deserves a medal for bravery after waking up at 5am in LA every time we wanted to talk on the telephone commented Sergey Bisenbaev, Creative Group Head at SLAVA . . .

For more coverage one can strategically deploy more people wearing Personal Communication Jammers and increase jammed area to action zone without need of special anti-drone jammer or other expensive high-power unit. Taipei, Taiwan, April 5, 2019 -- Jammers4U launches wearable police jammer to easily prevent mobile and internet communication on site. Police raid missions do not look the same as a few years ago. With modern communication devices, criminals can easily organize to make some countermeasures upon detecting police raid team. It is imperative to disable all wireless and mobile communication before the action to prevent any communication that can jeopardize the mission. Drones and remote operated vehicles can also interfere with an operation and compromise safety of police officers in action. Only reliable way to disable communication in the area is to activate the jammer, and kill all communication in the zone. Jammers4u has developed specialized series of multi-band handheld jammers for police forces, simple to use, light to carry, and with set of jamming bands that will stop all mobile communication, all internet 2.4Ghz 5Ghz communication applications such as Viber, Whats Up, Wee Chat, Messenger, and all similar programs that depend on the internet connection. There is also car remote jammer implemented, so officers can stop potential target to escape in a car, by disabling the car remote, so the car can not be unlocked and entered into. Police communication jammer can disable GSM or WiFi remote operated vehicles and drones up to 30m. More activated jammers significantly increase jamming range. Portable Communication Jammer CT-1010-5Ghz is utilizing 1W modules, in total 10W which allows maximal range of 30m. Jammer range depends greatly of many factors, such as cell tower power and distance, walls with armature, and other obstructions. However, in crowded situations, mobile signal is already degraded and weak so it is much easier to affect it . . .

LSoft Technologies is proud to announce an all-new version of its industry-leading disk utilities suite. Active@ LiveCD v.6 has been updated to the latest KDE5 distribution, a popular user interface for operating systems based on the Linux kernel. This version also sports an improved Boot Disk Creator for Windows, as well as updated editions of all the core components: KillDisk, UNDELETE, Partition Recovery, Password Changer, Disk Editor and Disk Backup. Backup and Disaster-Recovery Made Easy With Disk Backup, you can back a complete byte-by-byte copy of your hard drive, including the operating system, applications and all your personal files. Aside from making sure that nothing important gets forgotten about, a disk image is also great when you want to replace your hard drive or copy everything over to a new computer without having to do so manually. If you don't have a disk image handy, yet you've lost important files, the included data recovery software should be able to help you. Using UNDELETE, you can effortlessly recover files from formatted drives or those which have been deleted from the Recycle Bin. If, however, your goal is complete deletion of sensitive data, such as it might be if you're recycling your computer, you can use KillDisk to overwrite everything with zeros. Because Active@ LiveCD works in its own self-contained environment, it does not matter which operating system (if any) you have installed on your PC. This makes it easier to perform low-level troubleshooting tasks, while also giving you higher chances of successfully recovering your data. Get started today at http://www.livecd.com/ .
