The health, safety and security challenges that business owners and managers have faced in 2020 have made one thing very clear: COVID-19 has acted as a catalyst for a flurry of investments designed to spur the reopening of retail stores, commercial office space and public venues. Such investments don’t need to be singularly focused on opening the doors, but instead can be part of a more sustainable solution that can offer long-term value and flexibility that can be applied to a variety of situations.
This is where smart security cameras connected to the IoT can help.

Kauai's original hotel bubble involving several island resorts for COVID-19 safety has been put to the side after Gov. David Ige’s announced this week that as of Oct. 15 Hawaii will start admitting trans-Pacific travelers who record one negative COVID-19 test within three days of arrival, eliminating the need for resort bubbles. However, at least two high-end Kauai resorts will move ahead with establishing themselves as “bubble” hotels despite the Governor's decision.
Currently, cryptographic algorithms are based on factorization. RSA and Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) algorithms are difficult to solve using traditional binary computers because the computer is forced to work through an incomprehensibly long list of probabilities. A traditional binary computer solves that mathematical problem slowly, whereas a quantum computer with an efficient algorithm can solve that problem much more quickly. Maybe a million times faster!
GSX+ kicked off this morning with a keynote from Juan Manuel Santos, former president of Columbia (2010-2018) and recipient of the Nobel Peace prize for his efforts in bringing Columbia’s 50-year-long civil war to an end.

Data Center Security is far more just implementing Access Control Lists (ACL) on a router and firewalls.
