Gmail For Android Gets Microsoft Exchange Support

An anonymous reader writes: Google has updated Gmail for Android with a very notable feature: support for Microsoft Exchange. You can download the latest version of the app from Google Play (if you don’t see it, don’t worry: Google says the gradual rollout may take three or more days). The company had actually released this feature a few months ago, but at the time, it was only available for Nexus devices. With the new update, Google is making the feature available to a wider audience. “Exchange support was previously only available on our Nexus devices, but as of today, Exchange support covers mail, contacts, and calendar data in Android across all devices,” a Google spokesperson told VentureBeat.

Dropbox’s latest idea could change the way you think about cloud storage

dropbox image One of the problems with Dropbox and indeed all cloud storage is the way they have implemented how you view your cloud storage on your local drive. If you want to access your cloud file system in your local file management tool, you literally need to have it stored on your drive, which really defeats the idea of having cloud storage in the first place — especially on devices with… Read More

Firefox 46 arrives, security and stability the order of the day for desktop users

Mozilla has released Firefox 46.0 FINAL, a relatively minor refresh of its desktop browser for Windows, Linux and Mac with no standout new features. Also released is Firefox for Android 46.0, which does at least include some noteworthy new features such as the ability to display previously cached pages offline and support for sync via Firefox Accounts. The desktop build contains just two new items, neither of which will set the pulses racing. The JavaScript Just In Time (JIT) compiler has been tweaked to tighten security of JavaScript code on web pages. Now code can be executable or writable, but… [Continue Reading]

Dropbox wants to stretch desktop file storage to infinity

Dropbox has a futuristic vision for how its users will be able to share massive files and have quick access to them on their computers, without their hard drives overflowing.

The cloud storage company announced a new initiative at its Open conference in London on Tuesday called Project Infinite. It’s a push to create a new Dropbox interface that allows users to see all of the files they’ve stored in the cloud in their computer’s file explorer, without requiring them to keep local copies of each document, image, spreadsheet or other file. 

With Project Infinite, users will be able to manage their files in the cloud by moving them around inside the Mac OS X Finder or Windows File Explorer, just like they would any local files that are taking up space on their hard drives.

IDG Contributor Network: 5 steps to simple role-based access control

Despite all of the advanced attack scenarios we face in the world of cybersecurity today, it seems like we continue to shoot ourselves in the proverbial feet with the simple things.

Case in point — a study released this week by the Cloud Security Alliance indicating that almost a quarter of breaches reported by companies surveyed involved compromised credentials. Even more astounding was the fact 65% of the respondents indicated that their likelihood of a future breach due to stolen login information was medium or high. We clearly understand that we have a problem, but have little confidence that we can address it well.
