Snap MyLife, Inc. Shares New Year's Resolutions to Help You Manage Mobile, Personal and Family Security

Snap Secure Offers Mobile and Web Tools to Monitor and Protect the Entire Family and Keep Vital Data Safe

PRINCETON, N.J., Dec. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Getting in shape. Eating more leafy greens. Creating yearly budgets. All are admirable New Year's resolutions for you and your family. However, in this digital age in which we live, Snap MyLife, Inc. believes it's also wise to make resolutions to protect your mobile device, yourself, and your family.

Snap Secure is a comprehensive mobile security application from Snap MyLife, Inc. that provides round-the-clock protection for every member of the family. Whether you're looking to secure personal information on your smartphone or for ways to protect yourself and your family from real-life dangers, Snap Secure has you covered.

Five 2013 New Year's Resolutions for better security and peace of mind:

  1. Get serious about protecting your identify. A lost or stolen phone puts you at significant risk of identify theft and perpetrators accessing your personal information. Use technology like Snap Secure's remote block and wipe features to make sure your information doesn't fall into the wrong hands. And if you lose your phone, use Snap Secure to remotely back up your contacts, calendar and texts so you don't lose your data too.
  2. Don't leave your family's safety to chance. Get a mobile security plan like Snap Secure that gives you visibility into the actions and whereabouts of everyone in your family. Snap Secure's geo-fence feature allows you to establish virtual geographic boundaries for your children and receive alerts when a child leaves the area or does not arrive at a specified location within a designated time period. Snap Secure also allows you to leverage smartphone GPS technology and keep tabs on your child's whereabouts by tracking their mobile device location on a map via a convenient web dashboard.
  3. Educate your children about security. Let them know you're concerned about who may be contacting them and what the messages are about. Be upfront with them letting them know that you might monitor their calls and texts using a mobile tool like Snap Secure's call and text monitoring feature. Take the opportunity to talk about the matter and show that you are looking out for your child's best interests.
  4. Make sure you have your own emergency plan. Protect yourself with a mobile solution that has automatic alerts so you can react quickly in an emergency. With Snap Secure's one-touch panic button feature, a designated emergency contact will be alerted via email, call, Twitter or text that you need immediate assistance and could be in danger.
  5. Keep your data safe and private. Mobile devices are at the center of modern communication and information exchanges. Given how much sensitive data is on your smartphone, it's important to utilize safeguards to keep your data protected.  Use Snap Secure and get everything from antivirus protection to application transparency, so you can ensure no one is viewing or affecting your data in a harmful way.

It's going to be a great year and you can make it a safe one too with Snap Secure! After you resolve to go to the gym five days a week, turn your attention to the important matter of device, personal and family security. For more information, visit www.mysnapsecure.com.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
