Businesses are replacing VPNs with zero trust network access

By | November 5th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Zscaler has announced the results from the first industry survey to examine enterprise adoption of Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA), revealing that businesses have already started to replace VPNs with ZTNA.

The firm's 2019 Zero Trust Adoption Report, which was conducted by Cybersecurity Insiders, found that 15 percent of organizations have already enacted ZTNA while more than half (59%) plan to implement ZTNA over the course of the next 12 months.

As a result, only three out of every 20 organizations are protected against VPN attacks which cybercriminals are now taking advantage of to impact business operations.… Read the full article

MC Audiotech Forty-10 Loudspeakers, VPI HW-40 Turntable, Luminous Audio Arion Phono Preamp, Pass Labs XP22 preamp, Wolf Audio Alpha 3 Music Server, PS Audio DirectStream DAC, Parasound A23 Amplifier, Symposium Foundation Rack

By | November 5th, 2019|Categories: Stereophile|

Two friends whose taste and hearing I respect—and who visited every room at this show—told me they thought the $35K/pair MC Audiotech Forty-10 loudspeakers made the best sound at CAF. No question, these almost five-feet tall decorator-friendly midcentury-modernᡃlooking beauties sounded even better they look, and they look very nice.

At first, I thought they sounded like electrostatics, or maybe a planar-magnetic. Even after listening at some length and talking to the designer, I did not yet understand that the Forty-10 did not use electrostatic drivers.… Read the full article

Genesis Maestro Loudspeakers, Merrill Audio Christine Linestage and Element 116 Monoblocks, EMM Labs DAC2x, Genesis Racks, Cables, and Power Cords

By | November 5th, 2019|Categories: Stereophile|

Do you know why New Yorkers are always depressed? Because the light at the end of the tunnel is New Jersey.

My friend Laurence Borden told me that joke. He has a PhD in neuropharmacology and is the owner-operator of Distinctive Stereo in River Vale, New Jersey. (Don’t neuropharmacologists study the effects of drugs on the brain and nervous system?)

I told Larry, when an audio system is really good, I need a neuropharmacologist to explain why. He replied, “The audio system you are listening to is really good and here is part of the reason why.” Whereupon he introduced me to Gary Leonard Koh, the designer of the $30K Genesis Advanced technologies Maestro loudspeakers I was listening to.… Read the full article

The Google Pixelbook Go gets even more useful with virtual desktops

By | November 5th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Google has at last released Chrome OS 78 to Chromebooks, scheduled to land this week on the wide range of Chromebook laptops in the wild today, bringing some major new features.

Those new features bring Chromebooks – like Google’s brand-new, Editor’s Choice award-winning Pixelbook Go – much more in line with the more established macOS Catalina and Windows 10 operating systems (OS). For instance, the marquee change here is the introduction of virtual desktops to Chrome OS.

This allows users to hide away open apps into virtualized versions of their own desktops, creating discrete environments according to whatever they wish, whether that be projects or entertainment tasks.… Read the full article

Acora Acoustics with Esoteric, TW Acoustic, Audio Research, Cardas from CAS 2019. Capital Audiofest 2019

Earlier in the year — at both THE SHOW and RMAF — I’ve come across many audiophile writers and found a consensus among those who have been duly impressed with the Acora Acoustics and their sound.

Acora Acoustics as a company has only been showing for what seems like a single year, but the loudspeaker design experience of founder Valerio Cora goes back twenty-plus years. Acora builds their loudspeakers out of granite, which is an extremely hard material and even harder to machine and finish.… Read the full article
