24 January 2014 Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) chairperson Pansy Tlakula has encouraged South Africans to celebrate the legacy of the late Nelson Mandela by voting in this year’s general elections. Tlakula was speaking on Wednesday at a meeting of representatives of farmers and farmworkers’ unions, in Benoni, east of Johannesburg, where a pledge was signed committing farmers and their employees to a free and fair voting process. “We will be holding these elections after the passing away of the founding father of our democracy, Nelson Mandela,” Tlakula said. “With these elections, we need to celebrate his legacy, and we have to ensure that we give the message out to the world that indeed South Africa is a wonderful country that continues to take its rightful place in the community of nations. “This year’s elections are important elections in the history of our country, as we will be celebrating our 20th year of democracy and we should do so with enthusiasm,” she said, encouraging people “to relive the magic of 1994”. The second and final round of voter registration is set for the weekend of 8 and 9 February. While the date for the elections has not been proclaimed yet, the Constitution dictates that elections should be held within 90 days from the date of the last elections. This means the 2014 elections will be held some time between May and June.Pledge to enable farmworkers to vote In the past, Tlakula said, there were incidences where farm workers were not allowed time off to vote by their employers. By signing the pledge, the farming community, and especially farmers, committed themselves to allow the IEC staff reasonable access to their farms to register farmworkers, to allow farmworkers to vote for the political party of their choice, to allow workers time off to visit the IEC’s voting stations to register, and to allow them time off to vote. Tlakula said the IEC was currently enjoying a constructive relationship with the country’s farmers, and added that their engagement with them “is constant” through the IEC’s civic education programme. The president of the African Farmers’ Association of South Africa (Afasa), Mike Mlengana, said: “We want to assure that we are going to encourage our members to allow their workers time off to register and vote. “As Afasa, you will never hear us saying that we are not going to vote, and we are clear to our members that they should refrain from suppressing their workers by denying them the right to exercise their democratic right to vote for their preferred political party.” Representing Agri SA, Elize van der Westhuizen said: “Our members are going to allow workers to register and vote. We will also allow the IEC reasonable access to the farms to conduct voter registration, and we will also allow workers to attend political rallies since we value the importance of free and fair elections.” Transvaal Agricultural Union SA regional manager, Lynnette du Plessis, said: “We stand for free and fair elections, where people are allowed to vote without being intimidated. We’ve already started to encourage our members to allow their workers to go and register and vote in the upcoming elections.” The deputy secretary of the Food and Allied Workers Union, Moleko Phakedi, called on farmers to allow IEC staff to conduct their work in farming areas without any difficulties. “We are saying to farmers, please allow your workers to attend campaigns of their respective political parties in your farming area, in the spirit of Mandela of reconciliation and reaching out to one another,” he said.

If you’re seeing what I’m seeing this morning (see above), the only place to go is to the official Tweetdeck website. According to Tweetdeck, there are a number of tweets getting passed around urging users to update to the latest version of Tweetdeck. While many do need to update, the only place users should go to download this update is http://www.tweetdeck.com/desktop/. The tweets about the fake update link to a file named “tweetdeck-08302010-update.exe” and often are from the URL http://alturl.com. The Tweetdeck blog warns that many of the suspect tweets include the following:TweetDeck will work until tomorrow, udate now!1.Download TweetDeck udate ASAP!2.Update TweetDeck!3.Hurry up for tweetdeck update!4.Sorry for offtopic, but it is a critical TweetDeck update. It won’t work tomorrow!Trend Micro researcher Paul Ferguson told Network World that the file is “a generic Trojan horse program that is not detected by most antivirus products”, so installing the fake update could be harmful and go completely unnoticed.

The release of a new tool from DigitalPersona shows that the evolution of endpoint protection and management software is evolving from traditional client/server to hybrid approaches that make use of a cloud-based control and management console program. Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Tags:#cloud#How To#news#security The software includes several modules for locking down your endpoints, including better sign-on passwords than the standard Windows choices and the ability to centrally manage whole disk encryption policies too. It costs $2 per endpoint per month.Having a hybrid client/cloud security program has some theoretical appeal. You don’t have to worry about your users forgetting to install the latest updates or turning the protection off. You can instantly see what is happening across your network and find out which PCs are protected and which aren’t. And when the time comes to deploy new PCs across your enterprise, there is less software to worry about, since the client piece will download what is needed from the Internet. By foregoing a central management server, you don’t have to bring up a local network connection to update your client, a nice plus. The hybrid idea isn’t new, by any means. Microsoft’s Intune, for example, uses a similar hybrid client/cloud approach and offers a wide spectrum of protection including anti-virus, inventory and patch management, and centralized desktop firewall and security policy management. It costs $11 per endpoint per month. And traditional anti-virus makers like Panda, McAfee, and Trend Micro all have offered similar client/cloud versions of their desktop security tools for at least a year or more. Network access control products were the buzz of 2006-7, but since then the products have seen less press play as they turned into deployment nightmares. A few, such as Symantec’s Endpoint Protection, survive and even thrive (and just released a new version this past month, too). But despite this lull in hype, the need for better endpoint protection is still there.But the downside to DigitalPersona and other hybrid products is that the connection between client and cloud can be imperfect: sometimes you need to reboot your client PC to keep it synchronized with what the cloud thinks it should be doing. Or that the lightweight client piece turns out to be particularly fussy and require all sorts of Windows updates or additional software pieces to function: our test XP with SP3 machine required one such update before the DigitalPersona client could be properly installed. Another issue is that some products won’t work with 64-bit Windows versions, Windows Server OS’s or non-Windows endpoints (DigitalPersona, like Intune, is strictly for Windows but it does support 64-bit versions as well as 32-bit ones, for example.)And not all cloud-based consoles are created equally: this is where conducting a free trial is worth the trouble to see how each service is managed. Things to check include what kinds of reports are available, how the central service alerts you to exploits or potential trouble PCs, and how flexible the settings are for these tasks to your particular needs. The console for DigitalPersona was fairly clear cut: you can set up groups of PCs, assign them protective policies, and deploy agents with just a few mouse clicks. Each protective feature though is individually licensed, which is a bit maddening.
