Threat Discovery Services provides corporatewide traffic threat detection and
analysis capabilities via a threat discovery appliance or any VMware-based system. It
is deployed out of band at the network layer on the core switch, where it can monitor
the stealth techniques being used by modern malware to provide 24 x 7 network
monitoring and detection of hidden malware infections.
The threat discovery technology detects day-zero infections by leveraging Trend
Micro Smart Protection Network and multiple threat analysis engines.
Although the covered topics may not be an exhaustive representation of all the
security issues in wireless/mobile networks, they do represent a rich and useful sample
of the strategies and contents.

A firewall is a device that controls the flow of information between your computer and the
internet, similar to a router. Most modern operating systems include a software firewall. In
addition to the operating system’s firewall, the majority of home routers have a firewall built in.
Refer to your user’s guide for instructions on how to enable your firewall. Once your firewall is
enabled, consult the user’s guide to learn how to configure the security settings and set a strong
password to protect it against unwanted changes. ...
In collaboration with the Programme MicroSave Africa, Postbanks in Kenya and Tanzania designed
and introduced flexible savings accounts with unrestricted withdrawals to accommodate small busi-
ness people who want to transact regularly. However, the success of these products went beyond
the original target group with many banks’ passbook owners shifting and subscribing. Over time the
success of Bidii account and Domiciled Quick account also reached high value account holders
Bidii Account and Quick Account are card based and computer operated.
We will use whether or not the household owns animals, bikes and/or motorbikes. Households living
in the rural part of the municipality might be more prone to own these assets. Moreover, they might
have worse access to health and sanitary infrastructure. If this was the case, we expect that the
importance of household consumption will be underestimated when we use the ownership of animals,
bikes and/or motorbikes as instruments.
As mentioned, the DNS “phone book” looks like a hierarchical system. This is also
reﬂected in how the actual database which holds the information is implemented.
Instead of having a big database containing answers to all queries, DNS works by
delegating the responsibility, or “authority”, for each hierarchical component (i.e.,
a subtree of the DNS hierarchical tree, also called a “zone”) to the servers that
should be responsible for that component. These servers can further sub-delegate
authority, resulting in a distributed database based on a tree topology....
Overall, the microfinance sector is continuing to expand despite tremendous operating obstacles
in serving the market in a sustainable way. The lack of access to financial services for households
and micro and small enterprises is quite striking in Africa and microfinance institutions are crucial in
responding to the unbanked segments. However, the microfinance sector is still relatively small and
weak compared to other global regions and despite the huge potential market. In this context, the
role of savings banks in microfinance should be recognised and boosted.
Tuberculosis (TB) remains a public health issue worldwide. The lack of specific clinical symptoms to
diagnose TB makes the correct decision to admit patients to respiratory isolation a difficult task for the clinician.
Isolation of patients without the disease is common and increases health costs. Decision models for the diagnosis
of TB in patients attending hospitals can increase the quality of care and decrease costs, without the risk of hospital
The class of strict-sense non-blocking networks is here investigated, that is those networks in which it is always possible to set up a new connection between an idle inlet and an idle outlet independently of the network permutation at the set-up time.
