How To Create A Secure IoT Network To Guard Your Connected Devices


IoT has created a bridge between the physical world and the Virtual World. With all conviction, we can expect IoT as an indispensable part of our lives. But as the IoT implementations are growing, the security concerns are also growing at the same pace.

And Today, being a leading IoT service provider, we are going to share how you can create a secure IoT network that will keep your connected devices as safe as possible.

Steps To Create a Secure IoT Network

Let me tell you very straight that securing the IoT network doesn’t require a completely new or complex set of ideas and principles. The core lies in the best practices while designing the IoT solution. 

As there are many small to big things considerably, We can say IoT security is a multi-faceted effort that requires big moves as well as small adjustments to ensure networks, data, systems, and devices are protected. 

What is Security By Design?
Security by design is a practice that ensures security as a crucial consideration at all stages of product creation and deployment.
Often in the IoT developments led by speed and other priority factors, the security considerations are included late in the design and prototyping phase. That results in security breaches.

It’s important to remember that as devices and their firmware get obsolete and error-prone in time, they may become an attractive target of bad cyber actors.

Hence, it’s crucial to manage the lifecycle of security devices and cloud spectrum to reduce the attack surface. The sad part is that most of the time, robust and long-term security strategies are overlooked during IoT implementations.

Security is not a one-time activity, rather an evolving part of the IoT ecosystem that should support IoT deployments’ lifecycle in:

Adding new devices and decommissioning others,
Onboarding to new cloud platforms,
Running secure software updates,
Implementing regulated key renewals,
Maintaining large fleets of devices.
All these activities require comprehensive management of identities, keys, and tokens.

To avoid time-consuming and expensive services in the field, IoT Security lifecycle management solutions must facilitate updates remotely while executing them across large scale device fleets.

Now let’s see the Security concerns in two popular forms of IoT:

Tips To Secure Consumer IoT Devices


Smart speakers, domestic appliances, connected toys, and smart locks are all potentially vulnerable if not properly secured by design and during their expected lifespan. 

For example, someone who owns a Google Nest Hub and other Xiaomi Mijia cameras around his home claimed that he received images from other people’s homes, randomly, when he streamed content from his camera to a Google Nest Hub.
There are many such examples where the design loopholes have caused many consumers more harm than good.

The good news is that ETSI recently announced ETSI TS 103 645, the first worldwide standard for consumer IoT security. This sets a benchmark for how to secure consumer products connected to the internet and aims to promote best practice.
Additionally, here we are going to share tips that will help you in designing a secure IoT network for your consumers and smart homes.

Know Your Network and The Connected Devices – When we put together several devices over the internet that potentially leaves your entire network vulnerable. It’s common to lose track with an increasing number of equipped devices.
Hence it’s essential to know your network — the devices on it and the type of information they’re susceptible to disclosing. 

Assess the IoT Devices on Your Network
First, know which devices are connected to your network, audit your devices to understand their security posture. While selecting devices check for newer models with stronger security features, etc. Further, before making a purchase, read up to understand how much of a priority, security is, for that brand.

Input Strong Passwords to Protect Your Devices and Accounts
Use strong and unique passwords that will assist you in securing all your accounts and devices. Get rid off the common passwords like “admin” or “password123.” Make use of a password manager, if needed, to keep track of all your passwords. At the same time ensure that you and your employees don’t use the same passwords across multiple accounts and be sure to change them periodically.

Choose a Separate Network for Your Smart Devices
Separating networks is a smart way to protect your smart devices in the IoT network. With network segmentation, even if attackers discover a way into your smart devices, they can’t access your business data or sniff on that bank transfer you did from your personal laptop.

Reconfigure Your Default Device Settings
Usually when we receive our smart devices they are packed with default insecure settings. And things become worse if we do not modify their configurations. As weak default credentials, intrusive features, ports and permissions need to be assessed and reconfigured as per your requirements.

Install Firewalls and Other IoT Security Solutions to Identify Vulnerabilities
To safeguard your Smart homes and other consumer IoT networks block unauthorized traffic over the wire through firewalls. At the same time run intrusion detection systems/intrusion prevention systems (IDS/IPS) to monitor and analyze network traffic.
This is where you can use an automated scanner to uncover security weaknesses within your network infrastructure. Use a scanner to identify open ports and review the network services that are running.
Now let’s check out the key steps to protect your enterprise network against modern security threats.

Steps To Protect Your Enterprise IoT Network

We have seen many manufacturing industries adopting IoT and growing. However many aren’t serious enterprise security, that’s a mistake. Because we have seen that In 2018,  21% of companies reported a data breach or cyberattack due to insecure IoT devices.

So do not let that happened with you and follow the steps below to protect your enterprise IoT network:

Step 1:  Be alert of the risk
As IoT is relatively new as compared to IT, hence some of the threats are newer and not as widely used, and make companies reluctant. But we forget that IoT security is like buying insurance. We think we won’t ever have to use it, but the odds are, we might.
So it’s better to realize that with a lot of connected devices in use, we might have vulnerabilities that need to be minimized and fixed.

Step 2: Design a Secure network architecture
The Ponemon study found that less than 10% of organizations are confident they know about all of the printers, cameras, and building automation systems on their networks that are connected to the Internet.
Hence, it’s essential to carefully design your network architecture. And protect your devices from the network, and further protect your network from the devices.

Step 3: Observe Your Suppliers and Vendors
Attackers are smart today, they may target you through the suppliers and vendors. So do not underestimate the vulnerability that comes along with companies you connect with. 
It’s a better practice to include the security practices as part of your vendor risk management process.
Step 4: Practice For the Data Breach
You must prepare for an IoT data breach the same way you prepare for disasters like fire, earthquake, or other. Make a plan, have a regular drill, and keep the plan updated. It’s good to have regular exercises to test your data-breach preparedness. 
How will you tackle the situation If you get breached? you should have a well-documented plan for the same.

Step 5:  Control what you can, and learn to live with calculated risk
It is important to realize that while you should do everything that you can do, you can’t expect to prevent everything. So learn to live with a calculated risk.
For something that’s as crucial as a backdoor into your entire network, which is really what a smart-building management company represents, you really need to keep a close eye on their security practices.

Step 6: Start now, and get ready for whatever comes next
IoT being an emerging technology can not and should not be removed from our enterprises.Although there is risk that comes with it but like all excellent growth you need to take that risk and better prepare yourself to reduce the chances of mishappening like data breaches and others.
You know new devices are coming with each passing days, hackers are becoming more creative, and the risks are getting more profound and devastating.
So, Be aware and take proactive steps to secure your IoT network. And if you are looking for any other assistance in IoT services, do not forget to check our IoT services page.

How to Save Costs on Custom Software Development for Startups
The article was originally published on Codica blog Building a software product from scratch may seem costly for a startup on a small budget. In reality, expenses vary significantly depending on the solution, experience, and your partner's team. In this article, we will discuss our key findings to bring down the cost of software development. 1. Create a detailed business plan Be clear about the main objectives you ultimately want to achieve. Bear in mind the wide range of business goals based on your particular product. To begin with, define who your target audience is and set a pricing strategy. Who are your competitors? What advantages do you have over them? To achieve success, you have to dive deep into the details. As you write down each of the elements, you will be able to reach the finish line more quickly and easily. This approach will also highlight areas where cost reduction is possible. An example below by Instamojo depicts essential elements that a business plan should include. As all elements have been set, the question of progress tracking arises. Use the right key performance indicators (KPIs) and metrics that reflect startup dynamics. You have to stick to the indicators that are meaningful for your startup. If you’re not sure about the best starting point, you could begin with the following KPIs: * Customer Acquisition Cost; * Customer Churn Rate; * Customer Lifetime Value; * Monthly Recurring Revenue; * Daily Active Users. Read also: How to Build a SaaS Startup in 10 Smart Steps 2. Build an MVP first By the time you have summed up all plan details, you can take a look at the minimum viable product. It may cost too much for some startups to build a fully-featured product at once. For this reason, you need to know what level of “minimum” is ok for your MVP. Since an MVP has only basic functions, developers will need less time to deliver measurable results. Consequently, the development part becomes less expensive. Importantly, in this case the users will adopt your solution much earlier. Apart from the cost reduction, a huge benefit of building an MVP is shorter time-to-market. Proof of Concept vs Prototyping There are two more things we would like to mention in this section, namely the proof of concept and a prototype. Let’s take a look at the differences between those terms. Both of them describe a version of your future product, albeit in different ways. Proof of Concept (POC) describes whether you can realize the idea or not — it’s a test of certain functions. This is where you need to step aside from such frills as performance and usability. A prototype, in contrast, offers you a graphical presentation of the final product. It gives you a basic idea of crucial design elements, including layout and navigation. In our examples below, you can see the prototypes built-up by Codica. The first one is an e-commerce prototype selling online courses for children. The second prototype is for a trailer marketplace. Read also: Minimum Viable Product vs Prototype: What’s Best to Validate Your Business Idea 3. Start testing as early as possible You can reduce app development costs by avoiding the need for redevelopment. It is recommended that software is tested at early development stages. Otherwise, you can risk accumulating bugs, which will need a considerable budget to get fixed. Performing regular tests, in contrast, will allow you to fix all emerging errors. Another thing is that continuously reworking the project will delay the release date. Thus, ignoring the test results at the early stages can turn out wrong. For example, you risk skipping the right timing to attract customers. Speaking of testing, we have to underline the importance of early adopters. The sooner you reveal your MVP to the audience, the faster you will get valuable feedback, and use it to develop a full-featured product. You may also like: How to Calculate the Cost to Build a SaaS App in 2020 4. Use the Agile approach The strongest side of the Agile methodology is that it leaves room for a rapid turnaround. Thus, it's possible to add new features to an ongoing project with no delays or extra expenses. In our experience, the Agile approach is the best one for startups because it is: * Flexible * Cost-effective * It helps mitigate risks The Agile approach ensures that your partner works only on the required functionality. A product manager, for its part, bridges the gap between the development team and a client. Overall, Agile deepens the collaboration between the software developer and a client. As a result, you increase your chances to complete the project on time, on budget, and with high-quality results. 5. Hire a proven software company Now It's time to think about a dev team that will provide you with a software solution for a startup. You may go for sourcing freelancers. It's getting easier every day due to a large number of freelance marketplace websites. But keep in mind that it has certain risks. For example, the low hourly rates can lead to the poor quality of services. Alternatively, you can build an in-house development team. In this case, you will get high engagement. Still, this option can be fairly pricey. When creating an in-house team, be ready for the following expenses: * Salaries and compensations * Software licensing * Taxes * Holidays and sick leaves * Hardware Finally, partnering with a company experienced in software development for startups helps you reduce many expenses. You don’t have to recruit, train, and retrain software engineers. Similarly, there's no need to deal with downtime costs or finding an optimal replacement. If a development agency provides full-cycle development services, their team will include developers, UI/UI designers, project managers, and QA engineers. Therefore, they will be able to cover all your needs on custom product development. What is more important, specialized MVP development agencies have accumulated expertise of building multiple Minimum Viable products. Which means that you will get not only the product itself but recommendations based on best industry practices. As a result, this team will help create your MVP within a short timeframe and reasonable budget. How can Codica help Case study: Babel Cover App Since 2015, Codica has been offering a wide range of services to help startups to thrive. Our expertise in transforming ideas into final products includes full-cycle application development. Take a look at one of our many projects, an insurance progressive web application. Codica built an app for Babel Cover, an early-stage startup specializing in digital insurance. The solution we delivered allows users to quickly and easily purchase the insurance right from their smartphones, as well as report an incident. As already mentioned, the application created is a PWA. It is cross-platform, which helps the customer save time and budget instead of building two separate Android and iOS apps. Conclusion Custom software building can be challenging. It is, however, not a stop sign if you find a development partner that suits your project well. Hopefully, the tips we have uncovered will be impactful to your future startup. Here at Codica, we enjoy meeting complex challenges specific to the startup context.

Tips to secure your IOT based development solutions and services
The COVID-19 pandemic and 2020 lockdown put all analyst predictions into confusion, but as the economy begins to recover, IT consumption is predicted to pick up again, including the rise of the Internet of Things(IoT). The Internet of Things is not a single category, but rather a set of sectors and use cases. According to Research healthcare, smart offices, location systems, remote asset management, and emerging networking technology would boost IoT market growth in 2021. The Internet of Things (IoT) has a lot of advantages and risks. Supporters of technology and manufacturers of IoT devices promote the IoT services as an effort to better and simplify our everyday life by connecting billions of “smart” IoT devices  (such as Smart TVs, Smart Refrigerators, Smart Air-Conditioners, Smart Cameras, Smart Doorbells, Smart Police Surveillance & Traffic Systems, Smart Health & Performance Tracking Wearable, etc.) to the Internet. However, because of consumer privacy and data security issues with IoT Devices, IT Security Professionals believe it is unsafe and too dangerous. Secure Connection People benefit from stable cloud technology in a variety of ways, from encryption to other solutions. Other options are: Improving the security of your Internet gateway Before a device boots up, it performs a stable boot, which is a software device check. Keeping the cloud-based provider’s solutions up to date on a regular basis. To protect your private browsing data from possible attacks, use a protected VPN link. Building a Secure Network Access Control should be activated on your network so that only approved devices can connect. You should take the following steps: Build a firewall. Secure your authentication keys. Install the most up-to-date antivirus software to keep your network safe and secure. Here are some IoT security solutions for the most common IoT security issues: Secure the IoT Network To protect and secure the network linking computers to back-end networks on the internet, use standard endpoint security features such as antivirus, intrusion prevention, and control mechanisms. Authenticate the IoT Devices Introduce various user management features for a single IoT device and introduce secure authentication protocols such as two-factor authentication, digital signatures, and biometrics to enable users to authenticate IoT devices. Use IoT Data Encryption Encrypt data at rest and in transit from IoT devices and back-end networks using standard cryptographic algorithms and fully encrypted key lifecycle management procedures to enhance overall protection of user data and privacy and avoid IoT data breaches. Use IoT Security Analytics  Use IoT Security Analytics Tools that can detect IoT-specific threats and intrusions that standard network security solutions such as firewalls can’t detect. Use IoT API security methods Use IoT API Security methods to not only protect the privacy of data flow between IoT devices, back-end systems, and applications using recorded REST-based APIs, but also to ensure that only approved devices, developers, and apps communicate with APIs, as well as to identify possible threats and attacks against specific APIs. Test and IoT Hardware To ensure the security of IoT hardware, set up a robust testing process. This involves detailed testing of the range, power, and latency of the IoT system. Chip manufacturers for IoT devices must also improve processors for improved protection and lower power usage without rendering them too costly for consumers or too impractical to use in existing IoT devices, provided that the majority of IoT devices on the market today are inexpensive and disposable with minimal battery power. Develop Secured IoT Apps Given the immaturity of current IoT technology, IoT application developers must place an emphasis on the security aspect of their applications by integrating any of the above IoT security technologies. Before creating any IoT applications, developers must do complete research into the security of their applications and try to achieve the best possible compromise between the user interface and the security of their IoT software. Be Aware of the Most Recent IoT Security Threats and Breach Conclusion To ensure the security of the IoT devices and applications, the device makers and app developers must beware of the latest IoT security risk and breaches.  Since the Internet of Things is also a new concept, security flaws are likely to happen. As a result, all IoT device manufacturers and IoT app developers must be prepared for security risks and have a proper exit strategy to secure maximum data in case of a security attack or data breach  Finally, all IoT device manufacturers and IoT app developers must take action to inform their staff and customers about the current IoT risks, breaches, and security solutions.

How to build a video streaming service like Netflix in 5 steps
In 2021, video streaming services are booming. Moreover, the global streaming market is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate of 21.0% from 2021 to 2028. To ride that wave, entrepreneurs need to know how to create a video streaming service like Netflix that people will love to use. These services represent SaaS solutions that are very popular nowadays. In this article, we’ll discuss the main steps and tools needed to build a Netflix clone. Step 1. Define your niche When thinking through this topic, do not aim at every man, but find your specific target audience. The thing is, you need to offer the content that viewers will be binge-watching. Let’s go through the video streaming market niches you can occupy. Entertainment * Examples. Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, HBO. * Content. Entertaining feature films and series. Infotainment * Examples. Discovery+, Magic Stream, CuriosityStream. * Content. Skill-sharing videos, documentaries. Health & fitness * Examples. Obe, NEOU, AKT. * Content. Fitness and dance workouts. Sports & cybersport * Examples. Twitch, fuboTV, Dazn, ESPN+. * Content. Sports events. To sum up this section, we must admit that the competition between video streaming services is quite tough. That is where some novelty could help. You can concentrate not only on the movies and series. You might look towards education, cybersport, or fitness themes. Also, these are combinable. Step 2. Set your content strategy How can you find the content for your streaming platform? You can choose one of the three ways: * Rent movies from the authorized distributor; * Purchase permission from the copyright holder; * Create your own video streaming content. Mind that some films or shows can be subject to exclusive distribution rights, meaning you cannot buy a lifetime license for that content. Besides that, owners may state geolocation restrictions and sell the licenses for certain markets. Such an option minimizes the risks and expenses for both owners and customers. And here is why. The content owners will not need to care about the technical side of the distribution, and customers will get skinny bundles. These bundles provide more diverse and cheap viewing options, that is why customers find them cost-efficient. The third option is not for beginners but rather for established video streaming platforms. In 2013, Netflix released its first in-house produced series House of Cards. Since then, many companies like Amazon have started creating original content. Source: Sites at Penn State Step 3. Choose your monetization model Speaking of monetization, how are you going to capitalize your platform? You can begin with creating subscription plans for users. For example, the Hulu platform offers the following plans: Let’s discuss the most common revenue generation models. * SVoD (subscription video on demand). This option is highly popular in video streaming as it’s well-suited for this domain. Viewers can stream video content without limitations by purchasing monthly or yearly subscriptions. * AVoD (advertising-based video on demand). It implies that you generate profit by embedding advertisements into the video content, and users won’t need to pay anything. With the growth of the audience, such an option gets especially beneficial. * Hybrid. Within this model, viewers can use a streaming service before paying and get some advanced features on a subscription basis. This model is becoming more common among streaming platforms. And rightly so, as combining more than one revenue-generating model, you are more likely to boost your ROI, or return on investment. Step 4. Decide on the feature set The functionality sets commonly used for building a website like Netflix don’t differ drastically. However, the implementation of specific features can vary on different platforms. When defining the functionality for your service, give primary consideration to the pain points of your audience. What features to implement on your video streaming website in the first place? - User registration and profiles; - Search; - Admin panel; - Reviews/rating; - Push notifications; - Subscription and payout; - Playback settings. The list above contains a must-have functionality for a video-sharing service. We suggest that you implement these features in your MVP, or minimum viable product. You can discover more in our thorough article about the MVP approach and reasons to opt for it. Step 5. Find the right tech stack What are the programming languages and tools that will fuel your video streaming service? Why cannot you use any specific programming language or tool to handle the tech stack issue? Note that you’ll save a lot if you consider technologies that are well-suited for your domain and project. So, let’s talk about the main parts of the technology stack that will help you create a website like Netflix that your users will love to use. Server-side Let’s begin with the back-end for a streaming website that builds the core functionality. The back-end part takes small chunks of video content and converts them into a suitable casting format. You will need a powerful framework to fuel your platform. Consider Ruby on Rails, Node.js, C++, or Python. For example, Hulu and Twitch are built with the use of Ruby on Rails. It proves the effectiveness of this framework in video streaming platform development. Client-side The front-end is in charge of the delivery of streaming content from the server to the user’s device. React and Vue.js frameworks will work fine when you need to build a client-side part of a website like Netflix. Summing up We hope that our guide helps you discover the video streaming basics. If you want to know how much a video-sharing website will cost you, read our thorough article about the creation of a video streaming service: How Much Does it Cost to Make a Video Streaming Website Like Netflix. Are you ready to flex your fingers for your first crack at launching your streaming platform? Then, searching for a reliable custom software development partner is your challenge.

Know Which Is The Best Framework For Mobile App Development
React and Angular are two of the most common and versatile front-end development frameworks in the market, with both entering the Top 15 JS Frameworks for 2020 and this blog focuses on explaining to you in detail about them. In the coming minutes, you’ll learn what distinguishes Angular and React? Where the best React Native App Development business wins brownie points? and where brands can concentrate their energies on Angular app development.  We’ve focused this article on the comparison of Angular and React partly because they come from the same lineage as two strong rivals – Android and iOS and partly because they’re in some ways similar too.  For clearing the confusion about which is the best framework for Mobile App Development, we will cover Angular vs ReactJS equally and brief out on their functionalities, This will assist you in choosing the right framework as per your need.  Let’s discuss the fundamentals of React and Angular :- Angular:  Angular is an open-source JavaScript framework that is written in TypeScript. It was developed by Google and works with a variety of code editors. The use of Angular in front-end development is needed for the construction of interactive web apps and websites. It’s a full-featured JS platform for developing interactive single-page web applications. React: React Native is an open-source JavaScript library that was developed by Facebook. It is designed using JSX (a PHP extension) and JavaScript. The React Library breaks down a website into individual elements, making interface creation easier. The React JS system makes use of server-side rendering to provide a flexible and reliable solution. React vs. Angular: The Complete Comparison Let’s move on the next segment, where we’ll compare some elements in greater depth. 1- Learning Curve :- Angular has a very large database, learning all of the terms involved with it can take much more time than learning React Native. Since certain complex functions are built into the framework’s core, the developer would have to understand to use them. Furthermore, there are several methods to resolving a single issue. If you’re working with JavaScript, the React code would be relatively simple to understand. However, it takes quite some time to learn how to set up a project because there is no predefined project structure. You’ll also need to learn the Redux library, which is used to handle state in more than half of React applications.  2- Performance :- Bidirectional data-binding has a negative impact on the stability of Angular applications. The most recent version of Angular has greatly improved its performance, and it no longer follows React to the situation. Furthermore, an Angular application is significantly smaller than a React application. With the implementation of the interactive DOM, React’s performance has greatly improved. The load on the browser is reduced since all virtual DOM trees are lightweight and installed on a server. 3- Language :- Angular supports JavaScript and TypeScript, which is a superset of JS designed for bigger projects. TypeScript is smaller than JavaScript, the text is simpler to understand, and types are more obvious. The method of refactoring code also gets easier and quicker. React is built with JavaScript ES6+ and JSX script. JSX is a syntax extension that transforms JavaScript code into HTML-like syntax. This makes the code easier to understand, and typos are more easily identified. 4- App Structure :- Angular’s structure is fixed and complex, making it best suited for experienced developers. Model, Controller, and View are the three layers that make up Angular. The Controller creates an entity that is responsible for the Model and displays it with the View. React Native framework allows developers to make their own decisions. For a React app, there is no such thing as “the only correct framework.” Only the View layer is provided by React, while the Model and Controller layers are introduced by the use of third-party libraries. 5- App Performance and User Experience :- For its implementations, Angular uses real DOM. Real DOM is ideal for single-page websites that are maintained on a regular basis. Furthermore, the library is large, making the apps using Angular slower. UpWork is one of the most common Angular applications, since the user experience does not need to be modified regularly. React is ideally designed for pages that need frequent content updates because it uses a virtual DOM. The library is also small in size, making it more lightweight and dynamic. Instagram is an example of React, so the user feed must be updated frequently. 6- Testing :- Angular IO debugging and testing for an entire project is possible with single  software like Jasmine, Protractor, and Karma. React Js to perform various forms of checking, it needs a set of tools. 7- Ease of Update :- Angular releases one big upgrade every six months and gives each release a six-month depreciation term. The upgrade method is easy, and the complete system comes with its own set of packaged products. Scripts that use React can quickly switch between older and newer APIs. As we can see from Facebook’s interface, the APIs are very secure. In comparison to Angular, updates are fast and migration is easy. The major releases are secure and self-contained, but they have dynamic libraries. Key Features of Angular AJAX, HTTP, and Observables are all built-in. Large community support Typescript is time-saving. Consistent with technology Coding that is more clear and concise Error-handling support has been improved. Angular CLI allows for seamless updates. Local CSS / shadow DOM Separation of User Interface and Business Logic Key Features of React Allows to access libraries from other people. Time-Saving Simplicity and Composable Fully supported by Facebook. Improved customer interface and lightning-fast results. Faster Development One-directional binary linking provides code stability. React Components Angular and ReactJs Use Cases Choosing between Angular and React JS  is the most common confusion that most of us have experienced and are still familiar with. Let’s take a look at how Angular and Reactjs have collaborated to build world-changing applications. Angular vs React: When to choose what? In this part, we’ll go through some of the conditions where Angular or React is a good fit. When to Choose Angular? In the following scenarios, Angular is the best platform to use for your app: When you need ready-to-use applications for increased efficiency. When you need a feature-rich, large-scale framework When the development team has worked with Java, C#, and previous Angular versions, The app’s difficulty is still at a low to medium degree. When to Choose to React? In the following scenarios, the React Native framework would be the best option: when you require a multi-event app. When the application development team has HTML, CSS, and JavaScript knowledge. When the requirement demands a customized app approach, React is the way to go. When you want to make shareable components for your app. Benefits of Angular: Angular is a JavaScript framework that is great for creating dynamically interactive web applications. Let’s look at Five of Angular’s most important benefits:  1. Angular’s created to be used alongside Typescript and it has a lot of support for it. 2. Angular language support that provides intelligence and autocompletes for external HTML template files used by components. 3. Two-way data linking allows the app to behave in a unique way, reducing the probability of errors. 4. MVVM (Model-View-ViewModel) helps developers to work on different sections of the same app while using the same data. 5. Framework and design designed especially for project virtualization. Benefits of React:  React is a JavaScript library created by Facebook and open-sourced in 2013. It’s ideal for creating modern single-page apps of any size and scope. Let’s look at seven of React’s most important benefits:  Because of its simple interface, use of JSX (an HTML-like syntax) for templating, and extensive documentation, it’s simple to learn. Developers spend less time thinking about framework-specific programming and more time writing modern JavaScript.. React’s Virtual DOM implementation and numerous rendering optimizations make it extremely smooth. Since data linking is one-way, there are fewer undesirable side effects. Redux, React’s a most common framework for controlling application state, is simple to understand and master, and React implements Functional Programming (FP) principles, resulting in code that is easy to test and reuse. Type-safe applications can be created with either Microsoft’s TypeScript or Facebook’s Flow, all of which support JSX natively. React Native programming skills may be added (often directly) to React. What Does Angular and React Future Hold? By 2021, or even 2025, none of the two systems will be obsolete. Important updates have been made to React, allowing developers to easily provide input on new features, JavaScript syntax enhancements, and experimental APIs. Angular, on the other hand, has already seen a large uptick in use, which will continue with the release of Angular 10. The rest of the time, deciding which platform or UI library is best for your software project comes down to the app’s specifications, difficulty, and the product development company’s expertise. Which is Better? Before we come to any conclusions, we must remember that there is no such thing as the best framework or library. Choosing a framework or library is entirely dependent on the level of the project, its criteria, and its objectives. Any architecture or library has advantages and disadvantages, and React and Angular are no exception. Based on the above reasons, whether you are a novice or have little coding experience, as well as if you want consistency for your project, you can choose React because its learning curve is shorter and simpler, and the demand for jobs is higher than Angular.  If you choose Angular, you will find it annoying because big Angular updates occur every six months. Also, if you want a full-fledged architecture to create a large-scale project and want a straightforward coding approach, Angular is the way to go.

Quando se deve bloquear sites em sua empresa? Veja 8 fatores para considerar!
Se você possui uma empresa corporativa já deve ter ouvido falar sobre o bloqueio de sites em seus computadores para que os funcionários não se distraiam e só possam acessar os sites referentes ao trabalho. Esse é um assunto delicado, pois o bloqueio e a liberação de determinados sites em ambientes corporativos podem ou não levar em conta os interesses pessoais dos funcionários. Empresários e gestores de TI veem uma necessidade de restringir o acesso a determinados sites na hora do trabalho, mas nem sempre sabem como fazer isso. Por isso, a seguir nós mencionamos 8 fatores para considerar na hora de decidir se irá bloquear sites da sua empresa. Confira! 1 – Foco e produtividade dos funcionários As empresas que liberam todos os sites podem notar um problema muito comum em seus funcionários: a falta de foco que resulta em uma baixa da produtividade. A grande maioria de nós possui redes sociais e nos distraímos facilmente, principalmente se temos livre acesso a elas. Sem falar que muitas pessoas podem acabar mandando mensagem durante o dia e podemos nos distrair respondendo e resolvendo problemas pessoais. A produtividade é uma métrica muito importante dentro da empresa e ela deve ser levada em conta na hora de decidir se haverá o bloqueio de sites. O foco deve ser no desempenho da equipe, por isso se a produtividade está muito baixa, filtrar os sites que os colaboradores podem acessar pode ajudar a resolver. 2 – Consumo de banda larga O consumo de banda larga se torna excessivo quando a internet é totalmente liberada para os funcionários. A internet acaba sendo usada para fins pessoais como acesso a redes sociais, programas e jogos, além de alguns funcionários podem baixar programas para o computador da empresa. Algumas sessões da empresa precisam dos downloads, mas outras necessitam de uma rede mais estável que pode acabar sendo prejudicada se a internet estiver sendo usada para outros fins. O YouTube é um dos sites mais acessados pelos funcionários e um dos que mais consome banda larga, podendo deixar a internet mais lenta. Por isso, leve em conta como está o consumo da banda larga e se a internet anda lenta ou não, para definir se alguns sites serão bloqueados. 3 – Segurança da rede A segurança da rede também é um ponto muito importante e que deve ser considerado na decisão de bloquear sites. O livre acesso aos funcionários deixa a rede da empresa mais vulnerável a vírus e links maliciosos que são encontrados em downloads ou em sites não confiáveis. Nas redes sociais também é possível receber algum link malicioso e quando menos se espera, a rede da empresa pode ser prejudicada ou até mesmo hackeada. Muitas vezes, para evitar isso, algumas empresas permitem que os funcionários levem seus próprios computadores e dispositivos, mas recomendam que o antivírus esteja em dia. 4 – Maturidade Analise se a equipe de funcionários que você possui é madura. Se sim, será muito mais fácil de aceitar a sua decisão de bloquear os sites e não tentar burlar o sistema. A maturidade é algo muito importante para uma equipe e se a equipe se demonstrar comprometida com a produtividade, você não terá muitos problemas. 5 – Custos Os custos também devem ser considerados, afinal todos os demais tópicos refletem neles. As empresas que deixam o acesso liberado aos funcionários devem estar cientes que podem receber ataques ou serem hackeadas a qualquer momento e por isso devem estar preparadas para arcar com os custos de reparação. Além disso, acabam pagando mais com a banda larga. 6 – Satisfação dos funcionários Na hora de bloquear os sites, leve em conta que todos os funcionários precisam de alguns minutos ao longo do dia para descontrair e descansar, para que possam voltar ao trabalho com muito mais foco. Nem sempre o problema é liberar o acesso, mas sim impor limites. Se você preferir, estabeleça um horário no dia a dia em que o acesso ficará totalmente livre, como no horário do almoço, por exemplo. 7 – Particularidades de cada equipe Para definir os sites que cada grupo de funcionários poderá acessar, é preciso levar em conta o setor que atuam. A equipe de Marketing necessariamente precisará ter acesso às redes sociais para fazer as análises e implementar campanhas, por exemplo. Por isso, o ideal é descobrir as necessidades de cada equipe e estipular os sites liberados de acordo com isso. 8 – Analise É necessário analisar os dados da sua empresa diariamente. Analise quais foram os sites mais acessados pelos funcionários, confira se todas as restrições impostas estão sendo respeitadas. Compare os resultados com as análises de produtividade da equipe para ver se está dando resultados ou não. O contato próximo aos colaboradores te fará ter mais empatia e te ajudará a entender melhor como ajuda-los com o foco e a produtividade. https://www.ss3tecnologia.com.br/post/quando-se-deve-bloquear-sites
How is cryptocurrency exchange done?
Each cryptocurrency exchanger works according to the following principle - two accounts are involved in the exchange: the contractor and the customer. The customer transfers a certain amount in one currency to the account of the contractor, after which the contractor transfers the converted equivalent in another currency to the customer's account. The main tasks of the owners of modern exchangers are high speed, security of exchange operations and the most simplified use of their services by clients. If the exchange of currencies requires a large number of steps in a strict sequence, no one will use such a service. Therefore, most exchangers allow you to deposit / withdraw cryptocurrency in just a few clicks. To create an account and transactions on a cryptocurrency exchange, mandatory registration is required. It is not necessary to register on the sites of exchangers, it is enough to indicate some data about yourself when exchanging (e-mail, in some cases you will need a phone number and full name). Registration on the exchanger's website still provides a number of advantages - participation in the loyalty program (all exchanges are summed up and bonuses are provided), the referral system (if any). The exchange procedure itself is the same on all exchangers. Let's look at xmr to btc calculator as an example: On the exchanger's website, select the exchange directions (xmr to btc). The amount to be given is entered in the "give" field - in the "receive" field we can immediately see the amount that will be transferred in the selected currency to the account following the exchange results; The exchange can be done anonymously, so a lot of data is not required.
