Using Open Source Tools to Push Metrics into LogicMonitor

Ever walk into a corner market, push on the door and find it won’t open? You look down at the handle and are reminded by a sign on the door that you have to “pull” to open it? The LogicMonitor platform uses an agentless collector to pull metrics from thousands of devices and resources into a unified monitoring view (no agents required). We currently offer more than 2,000 LogicModules out-of-the-box that gather metrics from all kinds of systems using many different protocols.

Security Testing with API Fortress

As we write in our blog, 95% of API Breaches are Caused By This, most security vulnerabilities in your API are related to “functional errors” or “human errors.” The actual act of hacking is rarely involved in most of the major API breaches you’ve seen or read about in our blog. What is important to note is that there are functional tests that can help you capture some of those vulnerabilities before they are pushed live.

Android Banking Trojans: History, Types, Modus Operandi

One sunny morning, my breakfast was interrupted by a phone call from a friend who is an entrepreneur engaged in the transportation of various goods.
