Cyvera says it can stop Windows XP attacks in their tracks

Cyvera is one of several security companies coming out of Israel to bolster computer security. But unlike many security vendors — which track and monitor digital signatures of malware and then look for those known threats to come in–Cyvera which runs below the end-point operating system, is more about deception and blocking any threat, known or unknown, said company co-founder and ceo Netanal Davidi. htat means it can, in theory, deal with zero-day threats — those that attack unknown vulnerabilities and are thus extremely dangerous

To prove its point, Cyvera it’s launching TRAPS XP2, to secure hundreds of millions of Windows XP machines still in use. The product launches this week. Microsoft’s set the end-of-life for the 13-year-old operating system as of April 8.As of January, Netmarketshare estimated Windows XP still held nearly 30 percent client OS market share — running on an estimated 500 million machines.

During that period, articles echoing Ukrainian government talking points appeared on leading conservative online outlets, including RedState, Breitbart, and Pajamas Media.

One path that Apple could take if it ever decides to enter into the game console market is to take advantage of its position in iOS, and add gaming support to the Apple TV. The experience would likely be similar to what is currently available today when playing iOS games over AirPlay through the Apple TV.

An alternate path for Apple would be to go after the console gaming market from a more OS X driven perspective. With Sony’s new PlayStation 4 costing $399, and Microsoft’s new Xbox One costing $499, the entry level Mac Mini starting at $599 is not all that far out of line.
