Kosmos eSync improves data security

Data breaches will continue to rise. The increasing number of hackers breaching private data is in the foremost thoughts of every business and consumer today. From millions of credit cards and personal records stolen at Target, Staples, Home Depot, and TJX Retail Stores to private pictures ‘Snaps’ you thought were secure as previously advertised from Snap Chat. Now a new cyber attack on Sony Pictures is apparently in retaliation to prevent the release of The Interview, a comedy about the attempted assassination of the North Korean president. The cyber attackers have done everything in their power to inflict damage on Sony Pictures and according to a US official the attack resonated from North Korea. The cyber attackers released Sony Picture’s employee records, private company emails, commercial music, films, personal financial information and private employee records. As a result, Sony Pictures and three of the largest movie chains have decided to scale back and only allow for a limited release of The Interview in a small number of theaters and online outlets. The estimated cost of this cyber attack on Sony is estimated in the millions. How does this relate to syncing data?

Next generation integrations also allow for seamless data migrations needed due to mergers and acquisitions. It has become a fact of business today that as merchants grow their applications often grow as well. ERPs, POSs, CRMs, payment systems, web carts, sales order management, shipping/tracking, logistics, requisitions, loyalty, automated marketing, and many other software solutions are the tools required to manage and sustain growth in today’s market. However, these are mostly disparate systems. An ISV with the perfect solution for one problem might not be able to integrate with a clients existing system, resulting in one more lost sale. VARs have too many stories of the sale that almost was because the client had already spent a lot of time and money on other systems, and was not willing to start over. Read the full article...
