Microsoft announces new data centres in France by 20 17 to enhance its cloud services
by Ron Thomas | posted in: iOS | 0

With a view to boost the overall cloud services in Europe, Microsoft has announced to introduce new data centres in France next year. The expansion plan targets strengthening the existing data centre services in the UK, Germany, Netherlands and Ireland in 2017 with a new French server capacity. Microsoft recently launched two of its data centres at Germany having it under review for nearly six months.
The President of Microsoft, France, Vahe Torossian quoted in a press release that “This new Microsoft Cloud in France will offer the same high standards of performance and enterprise reliability that customers expect worldwide, combined with the location of data on French soil to facilitate corporate digital transformation and organizations in France.”

Microsoft is yet to reveal the location of the data centres and even the numbers for the same, although they made it very clear with their statement that there would be multiple data centres at different locations spread across the country. If news is to be believed then Microsoft’s decision to make this announcement this time was tactful following their cloud rival Amazon’s announcement of launching their data centres in France soon.

Having local server infrastructure has all pros attached to it and keeping that in mind, Microsoft has decided to add to their number of existing data centres by launching few in France. Local server infrastructure not only helps faster transfer of data between the customers and cloud, but in addition, it would be able to cover up the data sovereignty issues as well i.e. the data stored digitally is subject to the local laws only.

Setting up local data centres ensures that the customer’s data stay far from the eagle eyes of the U.S. authorities avoiding any unnecessary trouble that may arise at any time. The companies that deal with cloud services like Google, Amazon and Microsoft are popular globally for their fierce rivalry with each other however the same proves to be a boon for the customers since they end up availing the best of data transfer and other cloud services within their vicinity.
Microsoft’s move to open up its data centres in France might be a defensive attack for the AWS news to start up their data centres in France soon. They also believe that satisfying their clients will make them earn the clients’ trust – that undoubtedly rules the cloud arena.

MarsJoke Ransomware – the strongest threat around
by Ron Thomas | posted in: Software | 0

Ransomware is one of the major treats from among the variety of malwares that exist. As is known, it is malicious software that tends to lock up your computer files and then demands a ransom to unlock them. It has been a pain not only for individual users, but for the Government Agencies as well. Considered to be the most prominent method of cyber extortion, MarsJoke Ransomware is the new name doing rounds targeting the Government Agencies and Educational Institutions in the United States.
MarsJoke Ransomware threatens to wipe off all your data, if you do not fulfil their ransom demand within 96 hours of receiving the warning. The emails received claim to be from airlines making it all the more panicky and complicated for the individuals encountering it for the first time.
The massive MarsJoke Ransomware supposedly started its bulk email campaign on September 22nd this year, sending across numerous emails containing machine locking malware. Proofpoint Security researchers exposed this malware and informed the target to be local and federal government agencies (.Edu and .Gov entities).
The string “HelloWorldItsJokeFromMars” identified in the coding inspired this Ransomware to get renowned as “MarsJoke Ransomware.” The educational institutions are considered to be soft targets for such malware since they do not have robust back up plans in place to have their data secure all the time. On the other hand, the government agencies are allured using cheap flight offers in the emails.
Once infected, the user will be asked for a ransom of 0.7 BTC ($320) to be paid out within the next 96 hours or else if the time expires, all the files would be deleted. If the news is to be believed then MarsJoke is the latest string of the new Ransomware attacks and is going to cost $1bn to the organisations in the year 2016.
Just like the other Ransomware that have hit the market, this is also a full proof string that convinces the users well that their computer has been infected and in the absence of paying the ransom, they would end up losing all their confidential information stored in it. 96 hours is what has been defined as the deadline for the users to pay the demanded money to get rid of this latest malware.
