News items that I wrote this week include:
- Google adds new security features to its Workspace. The features cover aspects of implementing zero-trust security, data loss prevention or DLP, and data privacy controls. Many involve a series of automated improvements that will continuously monitor data placed in Google Drive, using its AI engine.
2. Proton adds new business-oriented VPN packaging to its services. The features build upon existing adware blockers, a smart protocol called Stealth that automatically chooses the best-performing connection, and support for both WireGuard and OpenVPN protocols.
3. Malvertising trends: The malware exploits known as malware-infected ads, or malvertising, have been around for decades, but new reports point to a steady rise in lethality.
