Skyhigh Networks reveals sophisticated cyber attack campaign on enterprise Office 365 users

By Sheetal Kumbhar

Skyhigh Networks, the provider of Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) platform, announced it has detected and remediated one of the first examples of an operationalised cloud-to-cloud threat in the enterprise. Attackers used popular cloud service platforms to conduct a persistent attack to log into corporate Office 365 accounts. Known as a ‘brute force’ attack, Skyhigh has […]

Bluetooth SIG announces Mesh networking capability

By News Aggregator

By Sheetal Kumbhar

The Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) announced that Bluetooth®technology, the global standard for simple, secure wireless connectivity, now supports mesh networking. The new mesh capability enables many-to-many (m:m) device communications and is optimised for creating large-scale device networks. It is ideally suited for building automation, sensor networks and other IoT solutions where tens, hundreds, or […]

Why Smart Cities Will Have to Get a Lot Smarter

By Michal Lev-Ram

In the future, smart cities will likely bring about many benefits, like less pollution and more efficient transportation systems. But they could also bring about many unintended consequences, according to a panel of speakers at Fortune‘s recent Brainstorm Tech conference in Aspen, Colo.

The group of experts from energy, transportation, government, finance, and other sectors gathered to debate the top-of-mind topic earlier this week. One of the most pressing questions that repeatedly came up was how to keep hackers from breaching increasingly digitized smart grid systems and transportation networks.

“A lot of cities are buying what’s cheapest, not what’s most secure,” said Mike Bell, CEO of Silicon Valley-based smart grid company Silver Spring Networks. “People who are making buying decisions don’t understand the technology.”

Ahmad Wani, CEO of 1Concern agreed: “Cities have to have the responsibility to at least vet these technologies.” (1Concern uses artificial intelligence to assess potential damages from natural disasters.)

It’s not only city-wide, municipal technologies that could be vulnerable to attack. The roundtable also touched on home appliances–in an “Internet of Things” environment, where everything is connected to home networks, many people don’t even know that they may be exposing themselves to hackers.

Get Data Sheet, Fortune’s technology newsletter.

Another unintended consequence of smarter cities? If autonomous vehicles become more mainstream, people could learn to outsmart the robots, creating mass confusion in urban centers. For example, if people walk in front of a driverless car, it won’t hit them–it is programmed to stop if it sees pedestrians in its path. But what about the car behind them?

For more from Fortune Brainstorm Tech, watch:

The solution, according to many of the panelists, is public/private partnerships that work toward solving some of these looming issues–the good and the bad.

Bluetooth Mesh networks: Is a standards body right for IoT innovation?

By Steven Max Patterson

Earlier this week, the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) announced the Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) standards have been extended to include mesh network features. It is clear that the Internet of Things (IoT) is the intended market. The SIG says:

Bluetooth Mesh is “ideally suited for building automation, sensor networks and other IoT solutions where tens, hundreds, or thousands of devices need to reliably and securely communicate with one another.”

Mesh networks are not new. It is a network topology in which each node relays data for the network. All mesh nodes cooperate in the distribution of data in the network. The IoT-purpose-built Zigbee—a low-power, low-bandwidth ad hoc network—is a mesh network. Dating to 2002, Aruba Networks was founded to build Wi-Fi mesh networks. In 2014, student protesters in Hong Kong used mobile app FireChat to turn the crowd’s smartphones into a Wi-Fi and Bluetooth mesh network so authorities could not interrupt protester’s coordinating conversations by blocking 3G and 4G network access. Bluetooth Mesh has some very desirable features:
