Hawkeye G battles malware so you don't have to

The number and complexity of cyber threats leveled against enterprises of all sizes these days is staggering. There's everything from advanced persistent threats created by well-sponsored nation states to disgruntled <a href="http://www.networkworld.com/article/2692093/security0/data-protection-165097-disgruntled-employees-lash-out.html">insiders</a> looking to make a fast buck or enact revenge for some perceived wrongdoing.

IronKey Workspace W700 FIPS Review: Windows To Go on one tough, secure little key drive

Looking to free yourself or your employees from the painful logistics of traveling with a laptop? Liked the looks of Windows to Go, but wanted the peace of mind that hardware security brings? You need to check out the Imation IronKey W700 Workspace--a hardware-encrypted, FIPS 140-2 level-3 validated, USB 3.0 Windows to Go thumb drive that can be managed remotely. It's the first of its breed and as secure a compute-on-any-PC solution as you'll find. It's also expensive.

Enterprise password managers

Password management is big business, and with good reason: the weakest link in your network's security is the human component -- the one that can succumb to social engineering, phishing, or inadvertently running the wrong program at the right time (for the keylogging malware, at least). And then there are passwords, the proverbial keys to the kingdom.

Review: 1Password 5 for Mac offers state-of-the-art protection for your passwords and more

If you're a frequent Macworld reader, the topic of "good" passwords is unlikely to be new to you. My colleagues and I never seem to tire of recommending the use of a password manager to help you keep tabs on your digital secret handshakes--alongside other bits of private data like credit card numbers--and avoid falling into bad practices that can have dire consequences on everything from your job to your finances.

Six browser plug-ins that protect your privacy

It's no stretch to say that ads are what make the Web go 'round. The content you're reading right now? Paid for by ads. Google, Facebook, Pandora, YouTube? Driven by ads. This is not a new concept: TV and radio have relied on commercials since their earliest days. Because, let's face it, <em>something</em> has to pay for all the free programming and services.

D-Link Wi-Fi Smart Plug review: Exceedingly basic home control

Plug D-Link's DSP-W215 Wi-Fi Smart Plug into an AC outlet and you can use your smartphone or tablet to monitor and control any device that you plug into it--locally or from wherever you have Internet access. You can also integrate the Smart Plug into D-Link's broader Connected Home Platform. But since it's designed to control anything from a lamp to an oscillating fan, control is limited to turning the device on or off. It can't do other useful things, such as dimming a connected lamp.

Bitdefender Internet Security 2015: Solid, low-maintenance PC protection

Historically, Bitdefender has ranked as one of the best performing antivirus programs, and its Internet Security 2015 security suite ($60 for one year of protection on one PC) keeps it near the top of the heap. If you don't need the extra features--secure cloud storage or anti-theft protection for mobile devices--that are increasingly being offered as part of "total security" packages, then this suite will ably secure your PC with little to no input from you.

These 3 Chrome extensions make encryption easier for everyone

Thanks to the fallout from the revelations about the U.S. government's surveillance tactics, people are starting to take interest in using encryption tools for keeping email, files, and instant messaging private. Just recently, Yahoo said it would build encryption into Yahoo Mail and Google is doing something similar with Gmail.

Matias Secure Pro wireless keyboard review: A power tool for the paranoid

The wireless Matias Secure Pro keyboard's number-one claim to fame is its 128-bit AES encryption. I'll get into that later. My favorite feature is that it's quiet. You'd hardly know this was a mechanical keyboard from the sound it makes. It's close to the volume level of a typical membrane keyboard, if a little sharper or clickier at times. You could use this board in any office or in a bedroom without disturbing a soul.

Lookout Premium: Outstanding anti-theft protection for Android phones

Android security suites generally have a lot of tricks up their sleeves, but Lookout Premium has taken it up a notch with anti-theft and recovery features. The program's variety of email alert settings is without peer. That said, the latest results from AV-TEST pegged Lookout as below par in malware detection and perhaps too aggressive in picking out suspect software.

Apricorn Aegis Padlock DT review: Capacious, secure storage for your desktop

If you're looking for secure storage with lots of capacity for your home or workplace, Apricorn's Aegis Padlock DT is a good place to start the search. This 3.5-inch external hard drive is relatively affordable--for the secure storage market, that is. It's FIPS 140-2 certified and can be administered via an on-board keypad. That makes it more versatile than solutions that rely on client software for encryption and access.

VyperVPN: secure Internet usage with abundant international servers

If you read our recent Freedome review, you know the reasons you might want to utilize a VPN (Virtual Private Network): privacy and spoofing your location. Freedome proved good at both, but VyprVPN from Golden Frog is in another class when it comes to location spoofing, with servers in 38 separate countries, including a small-fry like Luxemborg (sorry Luxemborgers...). You can pretend you're from almost anywhere with VyperVPN.
