Onapsis Partners with NextGen Cyber Talent

Onapsis | May 05, 2022

Onapsis
Onapsis, the market leader in business-critical application cybersecurity and compliance, announced today a collaboration with nonprofit education provider NextGen Cyber Talent to help establish cybersecurity job possibilities for underprivileged talent. NextGen Cyber Talent is the newest addition to the company's Onapsis Cares (OnaCares) charitable portfolio, which comprises the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, and the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF).

According to the (ISC)² Cybersecurity Workforce Study, the global cybersecurity workforce must expand by 65% in order to effectively secure organizations' important assets. However, the scarcity of educational resources for underrepresented populations puts substantial impediments in the way of their youngsters pursuing lifetime careers in cybersecurity. The cooperation between Onapsis and NextGen Cyber Talent is intended to reach out to young professionals in these areas and help the underserved section of potential students via training and job placements.

“While the skills gap has become a prevalent challenge in the cybersecurity community, not enough opportunity is given to underserved and underprivileged talent. At Onapsis, we participate in programs that align with our mission statement of making a positive societal impact through educational and philanthropic initiatives. We’re thrilled to partner with NextGen Cyber Talent and provide young professionals with educational resources that will open doors in their cybersecurity careers and lead them to higher-paid employment.”

Mariano Nunez, CEO of Onapsis

In 2017, the OnaCares mission was officially founded. With the acquisition of NextGen Cyber Talent, Onapsis is able to expand on its mission statement. Onapsis will be at the SAP Sapphire conference in Orlando, Florida from May 10 to 12, the RSA Conference in San Francisco from June 6 to 9, and the Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit in National Harbor, Maryland from June 7 to 10. The firm invites all guests to interact with Onapsis and give monies to NextGen Cyber Talent at these events. Visit Onapsis at SAP Sapphire by clicking here or RSA by clicking here.

Krishnan Chellakarai, Founder and Co-Chairman of NextGen Cyber Talent said that “Addressing the cybersecurity talent shortage starts with enhancing diversity and inclusion in the industry. By bringing cybersecurity experts, providers, and enterprises together, we can make a difference in the community. Our partnership with Onapsis will help us reach this end goal and provide the younger generation with more opportunities to advance their cybersecurity careers."

Virtually every company today uses firewalls to enforce perimeter security. However, this security model is problematic because, when that perimeter is breached, an attacker has relatively easy access to a company’s privileged intranet. As companies adopt mobile and cloud technologies, the perimeter is becoming increasingly difficult to enforce. Google is taking a different approach to network security.

On QingCloud Marketplace, Aurora Mobile Launched JG Verification Service

Aurora Mobile | February 21, 2022

Aurora Mobile Limited, a prominent mobile developer service provider in China, said that it had formed a relationship with QingCloud Technologies Corp. ("QingCloud"). As a result, the Company will make its verification service ("JVerification") available on the QingCloud Marketplace, a one-stop trading platform for cloud-based apps and services. JVerification will provide encrypted user registration and login, 2-step security verification, and other multi-factor authentication and identity verification services and will be securely integrated into QingCloud's hybrid ecosystem. "third-party registration and login," "Verification code registration and login," and "account password registration and login" are now the most popular methods for app registration and login. Unfortunately, these procedures are time-consuming since they require users to continually enter one-time verification codes given to their mobile phones or navigate between different interfaces to log in. At the same time, these verification methods are frequently vulnerable to cybersecurity flaws, hacking, and data leaks. As a result, developers must secure apps for both Android and iOS platforms using various verification techniques, resulting in a poor user experience. JVerification has integrated its gateway certification with China's three major telecom carriers to address this issue, covering up to 99.9% of mobile consumers. JVerification-enabled apps allow users to log in with a single click without inputting their phone numbers, passwords, or verification codes. Instead, users need to complete the registration and login process, which begins with launching the app, selecting registration and login, and then selecting one-click login using their local phone numbers. To enable the one-click registration and login feature in their apps, developers need to incorporate the JVerification SDK. Furthermore, because the one-click registration and login function is based on local phone numbers, the verification procedure is secured and conducted directly through local telecom carriers. This system reduces the hazards of SMS hijacking and data leaks and ensures user and developer information security. JVerification has become the top choice of more and more users in the 5G era as an efficient, convenient, and secure one-click verification service. In addition, it continues to allow apps to improve user conversion and traffic value. JVerification will be formally launched on the QingCloud Marketplace due to this partnership and will benefit from QingCloud's solid reputation, powerful ecosystem resources, and extensive operating systems. QingCloud Marketplace, as part of QingCloud's open ecosystem, has collaborated with ecosystem partners to provide customers with a wide range of high-quality vertical apps and has grown to become one of the most critical enterprise platforms for customers in industries such as finance, energy, transportation, education, medical care, and other Internet services. Aurora Mobile will continue to promote close collaboration with QingCloud in the future, leveraging its technological advantages to extend its product offerings, empowering developers and organizations to undertake high-quality operations, long-term development, and effective monetization. Furthermore, with more proactive partners in China, the company gradually establishes a complete and innovative ecosystem.
