Network Security is a rapidly growing topic. Whether you are looking to do something with your web traffic or building your own virtual private network (VPN) or even just encrypting traffic, there is an entire industry building on the same principles that many others are using. While it has been long-known that data can be moved quickly between different computers and networks on the internet using a variety of methods, it’s still an open question as to how that data can be moved safely over the internet. While there are a few companies in the space, the majority of these companies are only focused on specific industries rather than in the wider internet. There is however one company that is focused on the internet wide data transfer over a public network.
Evolution Cloud Networking Solutions (ECNS) aims to do exactly what it states – build a cloud based P2P network. It is backed by top tier venture capital firms and has been created by Evolve Digital Ventures — a company that is well known by the network community for their work in building the popular BitTorrent network.
The goal of this article is to give a brief but in depth introduction to the company, what it is, and what its current offerings are. The article is intended to be read in total isolation, and should not be considered as an all encompassing overview of ECNS. If you have enjoyed reading this article, please do get in touch with us to be added to the site so that we may further explore the offerings from ECNS.
As a network security professional, ECNS has received quite a bit of media attention, and rightfully so. They are not focused on specific industries (or at least, I hope they are not). This is not to say that they are uninvolved with specific industries either and will focus on a particular industry, but it is to stress the fact that they are not focused on specific industries.
Dan Jetton, Evolver VP of Cybersecurity,
Dan Jetton, Evolver VP of Cybersecurity, | Network Security. The following article first appeared in Network World, October 31, 2019, Issue #39. Dan Jetton is a freelance staff writer at Network World, specialising in network vulnerabilities, security, threat and social media management. He has written on data breaches, cyber security in e-government, data protection, network security, computer security, and cyber threat.
As cybersecurity director for the nonprofit Evolver Data Protection Center, Dan Jetton has been doing security for more than a decade. He has the responsibility to protect the data of our clients and the people of their organizations.
Evolver is the premier e-government organization dedicated to making government data more secure. The company has about 25,000 employees in the United States and more than 4,500 employees in Canada. The organization currently operates in 28 states and holds contracts with the federal government and local governments.
It’s one thing to work in a big organization like Evolver and have your finger on the pulse of the security business. And it’s far different to work for a small company like NetSol, a cyberattack-response company, as Dan Jetton has for the past year. That’s because NetSol is one of a small number of security experts who have the authority to address the needs of the larger government. That authority doesn’t come from a corporate umbrella, it comes directly from the federal government.
Dan Jetton is responsible for Evolver’s cyber security and threat response. He’s also the VP of Cybersecurity at Evolver.
The most obvious way to describe Dan Jetton’s position with Evolver is that he’s the head of Evolver’s security. At that time, it was still an extremely small number of people with the authority to respond to a large-scale incident. But, as Dan Jetton explains, “We’re still one of the largest e-government organizations in the United States, in all of the developed and developing countries, in the United States in particular. If we don’t know about it, we don’t know about it, because you would be asking the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI, you’d have a big impact on our company.

Security in the cloud has created unprecedented challenges for enterprises, particularly in the area of remote management. Cloud vendors are attempting to meet the challenges without compromising security, but many security concerns still persist among remote management vendors and the cloud vendors that support them. While organizations have seen many instances where remote management companies have suffered outages due to security vulnerabilities, there is a persistent belief among some in the remote management community that cloud security can only be fully trusted in the hands of the cloud provider. This paper analyzes why this belief is not supported by the literature and highlights how several security concerns in traditional cloud deployments were solved. Most notably, we show that providers of remote management solutions have found a way to protect users of their managed products from cyberattacks by using a combination of internal security mechanisms and external controls that are not available outside the cloud infrastructure. The paper also makes recommendations for how enterprises should protect their cloud infrastructure from remote management attacks. | Acknowledgments. | Disclaimer. | Author(s).

Tips of the Day in Network Security
A number of critical network security flaws have been found in recent years that allow a hacker to gain unauthorized access to a network or system. Fortunately, many of these flaws—especially ones related to authentication, encryption, and remote-access technologies—have been resolved in the past year or so, and the same or similar flaws have been found in a number of other products and technologies that are designed to protect computer networks. In addition, many of these exploits and vulnerabilities are not widely used on other types of systems and networks or targeted at specific applications.
The answers to these questions are in the next article, but for now, let’s turn to the “What to Do” section.
