DDoS Attacks from 2011 to 2012

DDoS Attacks from 2011 to 2012
When a business experiences a DDoS attack, it places stress on the systems and people responsible for maintaining them, as well as causing damage to the business. When a DDoS (distributed denial of service) attack happens, a malicious actor attempts to make an entire network go down. Website, email, voicemail, or anything accessed by the server under attack will be inaccessible to users. The ultimate goal of the attack is to make the system unavailable to the users that depend on the system. Over time, DDoS attacks have changed and intensified. As malicious actors become more sophisticated, attacks become more destructive. To understand how attacks have changed between 2011 and 2012, review the infographic below.

Comparison of Online Video Formats

Comparison of Online Video Formats
When sending videos to the internet, the file will have to be uploaded in a certain format, but this in itself can cause a lot of confusion. The format of a video is indicated by the extension on the end of a file name (for example .avi, .mov). Different formats work on different players, and compress video files in different ways. We already know that you can practically transfer between all types e.g. vhs to dvd. This article aims to look at a few common video formats and outline what they each do. AVCHD (Advanced Video Codec High Definition) Many newer HD camcorders export AVCHD video files. These files are high-end, high-quality clips, but unfortunately this means they are very large files and are require a fast computer to run with sufficient RAM. This format is difficult to work with and often very impractical. However, due to its high quality, AVCHD is often used as a master format from which editing is done; it is then compressed into a more manageable format. Clips should be converted from AVCHD when possible as not only are the files massive, but there are many compatibility issues with AVCHD files. .AVI (Audio Video Interlaced)...

Video and Online Marketing: Will it Work for You?

Video and Online Marketing: Will it Work for You?
The longer that we, as users, continue to use the Internet, the more the Internet will be our main place of business. Some may still work with their shoppers, clients and visitors face to face and over the phone, but many companies enable online tactics every single day. There are shared emails, newsletters, images, contacts…so much connectivity from every angle. But what is an email but a faceless person talking to you? It’s interesting how you don’t think about how dealing with someone online can bring a different way of communicating, but email really is a faceless. What if you dealt with a company all the time online and never once saw their faces? Think Amazon.com. Who, if anyone, EVER have you seen? No one, right? Me neither. For companies similar to Amazon, and I say similar because Amazon is a huge company, and I want us to think smaller. How would a smaller company change this “faceless problem”? Video Video for the company. Video of the location. Video of the employees. Video of the CEO. Video of anything to show the company, what it can offer and where it’s going. Online marketing combined with video can really boost the...

There Is More To Marketing Than Advertising

There Is More To Marketing Than Advertising

If you agree with them, you may be missing out on a huge opportunity to generate sales by truly understanding your market as well as your customers. Think of marketing as a car and advertising as the engine. Without the engine, the car can’t get very far. But, without the rest of the car parts, an engine is just an engine. By utilizing all aspects of marketing, your business will make great strides in its ability to not only reach the right customers, but also more easily refine the products or services you offer in order to keep current customers happy and new customers coming.  Advertising and Public Relations Advertising comes in many different forms such as commercials, emails, banner ads, pop-ups, post-cards, flyers, landing pages and keyword campaigns to name a few. Effective advertising gets the word out to the world that you are open for business.    In addition to effective advertising, it is increasingly important to have positive PR, or in other words, good customer service.
