Rajiv Singh, Global Head of Cybersecurity, Tech Mahindra, said, "Cybersecurity is a top concern for our customers and the entire industry today. Tech Mahindra’s collaboration with Virsec is a step towards defending against zero-day attacks launched by adversaries using fileless and memory-based techniques.

It also protects applications from the inside, against known and unknown zero-day threats. Virsec patented technology maps acceptable application execution, and instantly detects code execution deviations triggered by cyberattacks. This deterministic process detects and blocks application attacks within milliseconds, with precise forensics at every step.

Saurabh Sharma, Vice President of Business Development, Virsec, said, "In today’s hostile security environment, we’re seeing an exponential rise in attacks that target application memory during runtime, and Virsec directly addresses these risks. We are already working with Tech Mahindra’s customers in the U.S. representing telecom, semiconductor, and energy verticals and have plans to expand our joint solutions to other verticals and regions."

Tech Mahindra provides enterprise cybersecurity and risk management services to customers across the globe, including Fortune 20 companies.

    What do the world’s most successful people do when it’s time to retire?

    When Thomas Schreier Jr. graduated from the University of Notre Dame more than three decades ago, he never envisioned that in his late 50s he'd be teaching a class there called Designing an Inspired Life and regularly walking the South Bend, Ind., campus as the founding director of the university's Inspired Leadership Initiative. The initiative, now in its second year, consists of 15 accomplished individuals who have wrapped up two or three decades in successful careers and are eager to devote an academic year to studies at Notre Dame. Notre Dame's joins similar programs at prominent institutions pioneering this concept: the Stanford Distinguished Careers Institute, operated in partnership with the Stanford Center on Longevity, and Harvard's Advanced Leadership Initiative, a yearlong program for corporate executives and professionals interested in applying their skills to social problems.

    Here’s how one ‘black swan’ investor is protecting his $5 billion fund against a market crash that ‘won’t be pretty’

    “Really explosive downside protection is really the only risk mitigation that's able to move the needle for people, because it's the only risk mitigation that doesn't cost you as you are waiting for it to happen,” Spitznagel said. In other words, his fund provides crash insurance so his clients can take on more “systemic risk” with their other investments. Spitznagel, a former trader, is a protégé of Nassim Nicholas Taleb, the author of the 2007 bestseller, “The Black Swan,” which is a metaphor used to describe unpredictable, highly disruptive events — the kind that could blow up markets.

    U.S. weighs blocking GE engine sales for China's new airplane - sources

    The potential restriction on the engine sales - possibly along with limits on other components for Chinese commercial aircraft such as flight control systems made by Honeywell International Inc - is the latest move in the battle between the world's two largest economies over trade and technology. The issue is expected to come up at an interagency meeting about how strictly to limit exports of U.S. technology to China on Thursday and at another meeting with members of President Donald Trump's Cabinet set for Feb. 28, sources said. The White House and the U.S. Commerce Department, which issues licenses for such exports, declined to comment, as did a GE spokeswoman.

    Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is reportedly paying $165 million for a palatial Beverly Hills mansion and, according to SEC filings, for that price the Amazon  founder could have footed the 2019 federal tax bill his company is planning to pay this year, and still have $3 million left over. Bezos purchased the Warner Estate, originally designed in the 1930s for the late Warner Bros.  president Jack Warner, from music mogul David Geffen, The Wall Street Journal reported, citing people familiar with the transaction.

    A German court on Sunday ordered Tesla Inc to stop clearing forest land near the capital Berlin to build its first European car and battery factory, a victory for local environmental activists. The U.S. electric carmaker announced plans last November to build a Gigafactory in Gruenheide in the eastern state of Brandenburg. The court ruling, by the higher administrative court of the states of Berlin and Brandenburg, comes after the state environmental office gave a green light to clear 92 hectares of forest for the plant.

    There's no shortage of arguments that the U.S. stock market, whose main benchmark indexes are at record highs, is overvalued. If your investment portfolio is concentrated in an index fund, you might feel you are properly diversified, but there's a good chance your risk is concentrated among a short list of companies. Jim Roumell, the founder of Roumell Asset Management of Chevy Chase, Md., and manager of the Roumell Opportunistic Value Fund (RAMSX) offers an investment strategy that is truly different: A balanced fund that takes concentrated positions in micro-cap companies that he argues are grossly undervalued.

    The Most Affordable Way to Buy Gold: Physical Gold or ETFs?

    Gold – valued as a currency, commodity and investment for thousands of years – is popular among today's investors because it can be used as a hedge against currency devaluation, inflation, or deflation, and due to its ability to provide a "safe haven" during times of economic uncertainty. The gold market is highly liquid and there are a number of ways in which investors can gain exposure to this precious metal, including holding physical gold (i.e., gold coins and bars) and exchange-traded funds (ETFs). Physical gold provides the most direct exposure to gold.
