We’re excited to be presenting at the Columbia TechBreakfast tomorrow morning. TechBreakfast is a national organization with over 4,700 members in just the DC, Maryland, Virginia area, and over 7,000 members nationwide, with events in Silicon Valley, New York City, Austin, Philadelphia, and Boston, among others. TechBreakfast is a monthly demo-style event where entrepreneurs, techies, developers, designers, business people, and interested people see showcases on cool new technology in a demo format and interact with each other. The presenters have 7 minutes to demo and showcase their technology, followed by 3 minutes of Q&A from the audience.
Light Point Security will be presenting a short overview and demo of Light Point Web Enterprise at this month’s TechBreakfast event in Columbia, MD.

It’s “Show and Tell for Adults” where people show the innovative technology they are working on.
Light Point Security has just released Light Point Web 2.1. The 2.1 release contains lots of improvements, but the main goal was to lay the ground work for Light Point Web Enterprise. Enterprises can now get Non-persistent Desktop Browsing (known as NPDB) using our dual-layered virtualization, running on a server only they have access to.
Last night I came across a sobering article from Brian Krebs of KrebsOnSecurity. The article talked about a specific crimeware author that is advertising that he is in the market to buy fresh new browser exploits, but the article had much more information than just that.

Recently, we released an update to our servers that allow our users to view many popular document types through Light Point Web. To accomplish this, we are using the Google Docs Viewer. The Google Docs Viewer is a nifty little service from Google that can turn documents into normal webpages.
The new plugin viewer works automatically. Now, when you click a link to a supported file, such as a PDF, you will be sent to the Google Docs Viewer for that file. This gives you the ability to read the file without it ever touching your computer.
Light Point Security has just released Light Point Web 2.0. The 2.0 release was basically the completion of the scrolling work started in the 1.2 update. Where 1.2 added client-side scrolling, 2.0 provides scroll-caching. Additionally, there were some client-side bug fixes to correct issues with the newest versions of Firefox.
Light Point Security has just released Light Point Web 1.2. The main focus of this update was the addition of client-side scrolling. Additionally, there were some improvements involving the keyboard focus when switching between tabs.
Today, I’m going to walk you through the process of being able to browse the web in complete safety. The title of this post explicitly mentions “viruses”, but I’m using this as a more well-known moniker for the term “malware”. Malware is a more generic term which encompasses viruses, spyware, trojans, etc.
What I mean by “complete safety”, is that you do not have to worry about malware infecting your computer. It does not mean you are safe from being tricked into giving your banking passwords to a site that is only pretending to be your bank.
Does Light Point Security track our users’ browsing? I get this question a lot, so I’d like to clarify this in a blog post. We absolutely do not track our users’ activities online. In fact, that goes totally against what we stand for – to protect you while on the web.
