Our personal, digital, national and military security depend on a safe cyber space.
Prometheus Components and Introduction
I have written a previous article about a software program that can be used to monitor networks, and I have found another one that I would like to share with you. Prometheus is its name. It is a great free, open-source metric tool kit that is being used by businesses for cyber security, both big and small operations. The tool can be used to get information on what your applications are doing and how healthy said apps are. Prometheus is a server component that can be installed on any server/computer and used to monitor an entire digital environment. It runs on both Windows and Linux operating systems in the same general manner. It also runs many different functions on a single server that allow people to know how systems on their network are running.
When it comes to Prometheus, a software program that can be used for monitoring networking systems. You can, for example, monitor many systems on a computer network. All the metrics are collected from a HTTP endpoint and the server running Prometheus will collect this information and provide it to users. There are four specific systems that Prometheus can work with all at one time that I can describe well: a website running on Windows, a batch process on Linux, server of Windows, and a server for Linux. Prometheus is able to consistently provide a certain level of monitoring, even if the various different metrics were very different. On a Linux server, you could have an exporter process such as a tool known as Node Exporter, which is a tool that is considered a part of the Prometheus ecosystem. The exporter is able to provide a HTTP endpoint and data in the form of a Prometheus format. There is a simple format for looking to this information can allow you to see every metric has a name and a value. There can also be metadata that describes the data and a basic description that is helpful for explaining the function to humans.

The Future of Global Cybersecurity in the Manufacturing Industry
The application of the Internet of Things (IoT), bring your own device (BYOD), machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) in business has brought a whole new level of hyperconnectivity between industries, their employees and customers. This high degree of connectivity, however convenient and useful to both manufacturers and customers, comes at a great cost as it opens up systems to outside tampering. Coupled with increasingly sophisticated cyber threats and attacks, these innovations will continue to fuel the importance of cybersecurity in all business domains, including manufacturing, and this cannot be ignored.
The Five Stages of a Penetration Test
What is Cybersecurity? Penetration testing is what we can call ethical hackers' work. They think like they are hackers with bad intentions and attack their own systems. This helps them understand the strengths and weaknesses of their client's websites and protect their organizational assets.
Difference Between Hardware Firewall and Software Firewall
It is possible to split firewall models into two groups: a software firewall and a hardware firewall. Software for the firewall is security software mounted on a device or server. A hardware firewall with a dedicated CPU, memory, operating system and software is a standalone unit. Often, certain hardware firewalls are part of and are built into the router.

Scam Emails From Paypal?
A recent occurrence of suspicious e-mails have surfaced that indicate a payment has been made, from a individual's PayPal account, to an account with which the individual is not familiar with. The e-mails appear to be an authentic receipt from PayPal, but are actually nothing more than scammers trying to fool you into giving out information. Let me point out that PayPal will never send an e-mail to your e-mail address, under any circumstances. They will direct you to their secure website to make any payment you might be interested in. You can visit their site, and read their statements in order to become fully aware of their policies.
Intro to Computer Viruses
People hear about computer viruses all the time, but many people do not know what exactly a computer virus is. Well, the answer can get very complex, but it has a very simple definition that anyone can comprehend. A computer virus, in its most basic terms, is a type of computer program that, when it is executed, replicates itself and changes other computer programs by inserting its own code. If the replication succeeds, the computer virus is able to infect the other computer programs the same way a biological virus is able to infect the individual cells of its host. The majority of computer viruses are designed to run on Microsoft Windows operating systems, but they can run on other operating systems such as Linux and MacOS.
