“Peter Means, CEO of NovaStor Corp., has built a $10 million business by protecting corporate data from system failure. Based in Simi Valley, Calif., NovaStor develops software designed to back up information, including data on Web-based applications. The 14-year-old company has 40 employees, many of whom work from home and remote locations around the globe. Now NovaStor is working to protect its own electronic files ? not from system failure, but from theft, inappropriate use, hackers and other forms of electronic crime.”
– The only idea I disagree with in this article is that data security is talked about like it is an insurance policy. Successful data security is more like a seat belt or an airbag, it’s there when you need it. Insurance is there after everything has already gone bad. You see my point. That said you should have anti-virus, firewalls and ad/spyware software on each computer you own. This costs nothing if you go to sites like Zonelabs, Sygate, Grisoft, AntiVir, Lavasoft and Spybot. -ed.
