The Challenge of Protecting Company Data

With the introduction of information technologies and systems in the business industry, they have significantly enhanced data collection, storage, and protection. Data protection plays a huge role in ensuring current strategies and future business plans are always protected. Access to such sensitive data is protected by the use of passwords. However, as technology is evolving at an incredibly accelerated rate as well as the rise of cybercriminals, passwords do not offer the best method of guarding the business’s data. Currently, various multi-factor authentication methods have become obsolete because of hackers, password dumps, data leaks.

To ensure that data is always protected, a business should implement biometric technologies as their primary authentication security system. Biometric technologies offer the best authentication system as it employs two security categories for authentication, which are behavioral and psychological. Behavioral biometrics consists of hand tremor, keystroke patterns, navigation patterns, and handedness. Psychological biometrics consists of iris and facial pattern recognition, heartbeat, and voice recognition.

These two categories offer a secure method of authentication while working together with additional data such as device data or physiological biometrics. Together with passwords, these security measures will ensure that your company’s data remains protected at all times as well as providing controlled access to company data. There are instances where both behavioral and psychological biometrics has been successfully implemented, which offer an additional option of securing company data without using any form of passwords.


Despite the fact that the high-security levels offered by both psychological and behavioral biometrics to businesses, they also encounter several challenges in the day to day running of the business. As a business implements the use of psychological and behavioral biometrics as part of their security system, it must ensure that all of their employees can access and use every psychological and behavioral reader.

This means that a business will have to bear the high cost of purchasing the system together with all of the required devices such as iris scanners and fingerprint readers. It is also important that a business identifies the perfect combination of the available biometrics to purchase and implement in the business. This ensures that every employee can easily use them, while also operating within the business’s budget. In the end, the cost of these new security technologies will be worth the money as the data will always be monitored and secured.

You Can Cool Your Home Easier By Following Goettl Air Conditioning’s Instructions

Summer not only brings hot temperatures that you often look for relief from, but also increased cooling costs since your air conditioner needs to run more frequently. But one of the HVAC industry’s top-rated companies, Goettl Air Conditioning says people can do things to their home that could save hundreds in cooling costs. Goettl is a highly trusted company that hires certified HVAC technicians and has delivered top quality customer service in both installations and repairs of heating and cooling units.

Goettl says that adding insulation to your home is one of the first steps to making it cooling efficient because you can prevent extra heat from coming in in places like the attic or where more sunlight comes through. You should also have the condenser placed in a shady area outdoors but far enough away from trees where it might collect debris. But Goettl also says it’s you should have your air conditioner serviced at least twice a year because simple routines such as changing the filters and checking the motor can prolong its life by quite a bit.

Goettl Air Conditioning’s history as one of the leading HVAC contractors in the US began in 1939 when the Goettl brothers started an industrial HVAC service company in Phoenix that survived even in the Great Depression and picked up a lot of business in World War II. The company became a manufacturer of HVAC systems and was sold several times over the last 50 years including most recently to Ken Goodrich who helped it rebound from financial problems. Goodrich has not only hired one of the most solid teams around him, he’s also made community involvement in the Phoenix and Las Vegas areas a big part of business. He recently led the acquisitions of Las Vegas Air, Paradise Air and Walton’s Heating and Air. You can visit their Facebook page.

Fashionable and Affordable Active-wear by Fabletics

For a long period of time, women were forced to choose between affordable or fashionable wear when it came to choosing clothes to wear as they worked out. The market was not as competitive in this industry so people had to settle for less. Women ended up just going with the standard active-wear because it was the affordable brand. Don Ressler and his partner Adam noted this gap in the market as much as the demand was very high.

To feel this gap, Don and his partner started Fabletics with the motive of offering a brand that was comfortable, affordable and fashionable for women’s active-wear. Don Ressler worked tirelessly with his partner to build a reputable brand in the market. They worked with the women on the ground to find out what they needed and what would work for them. They did not focus on what other brands were offering. Due to this reason, they managed to come up with a brand that suited the needs of the women. The clothes they offered were fashionable, comfortable, practical and affordable. The fact that many companies offered something that was not unique gave them a chance to shine.

Don Ressler worked closely with the other co-founder Kate Hudson to market their brand uniquely. They wanted to make a mark in the industry and build a reputable brand that the women they targeted would relate with. Kate was confident and friendly, a perfect fit for what this brand stood for. She took over as the spokeswoman of Fabletics. Her work mainly involved communicating with the clients and expanding the market for the company. She was very appealing and her face alone made the brand recognizable because of her active lifestyle. She was well conversant with customer satisfaction and with her love for the media, she created an online presence that was hard to be missed. Since Kate joined Fabletics, she has worked hard to make sure that the brand was well represented and marketed in the industry.

When they began, Don Ressler worked through challenges before he got a breakthrough in the first sportswear that was practical and fashionable. Don Ressler used his vast knowledge to guide his team into fine-tuning his creation into something better in terms of quality and comfort. Fabletics soon stood out in the market. Part of the reasons this happened was the presence that Don had online. Don and Kate also started a system for discounting prices online that clients could sign up for. Fabletics is still working on a further expansion of their brand.
