New security patching techniques in Microsoft's just-released Windows 10 may prove particularly useful to Australian PC users, who are less likely to have applied security updates to their operating systems and applications than their neighbours across the Tasman, new figures from vulnerability intelligence firm Secunia have revealed.

Australians lost $136,000 to malware in June alone and have so far lost $45 million to scammers this year, new figures from the ACCC revealed even as attackers hit the Telegram messaging app in Australia and APAC areas, knocking the service offline. No wonder Australian IT managers feel besieged by attackers – and that BYOD users worry that their employers can't keep private data safe.

When we tested next-generation firewalls last May, at least one important security vendor wasn't there: Cisco, because they weren't ready to be tested. Now that the ASA CX next-generation firewall has had a year to mature, we put the product through its paces, using the same methodology as our last NGFW test.

What is big, flexible, red and costs more than your average mid-range family sedan? Not a HSV—not quite that much—but this top of the range unified threat management (UTM) device (or in this case, XTM– the X presumably being a variable) is definitely in a high performance category. The XTM2050 from WatchGuard is one of a new breed of security devices that packs punch.

With data becoming more valuable, the need for security also gets greater. Today’s technology and working behaviours both facilitate data being easily transported. Information is far less static due to home working, multiple office sites, low cost USB storage devices and DVDs. With all these portable devices and data being moved from place to place we must be mindful of data backup.

These days barely a day goes by where there isn’t some sort of network security breach or hack or malfunction of some sort. This year too we had the rise of groups such as Anonymous and Lulz that sought out attention for their activities. Here we take a look at the year in pictures of some of the key security problems that grabbed our attention.

The complexity of encryption schemes has been increased dramatically in an attempt to outpace the development of computational tools designed to crack them. Now it's important to devise algorithms that can't be brute forced for trillions of years in the hopes that they will remain secure long enough to be useful before they, too, are broken. Here's a quiz about encryption to see how well you are versed in one of security's most important components. Keep track of your score and check at the end to see how well you stack up.
