Ransomware-As-a-Service a Big Problem for Small & Large Businesses

July 12, 2021 / in Blog, Tech Essentials / by Zafar Khan, RPost CEO

We Predicted the Death of Ransomware in 2017. Oh, Time Machines. We first wrote about Ransomware attacks in Tech Essentials in 2017 – back when a Bitcoin was valued at $1800 (oh, the good old days). The crux of the article was that many victims were paying their ransom to the cyber perpetrators, but they did not have an easy way to track and reconcile who paid, and m [...]

Independence from Big Brother, Big Tech and Big Putin This time of year, Americans are obviously thinking about independence. And this year, independence will take on even greater importance because the lockdowns are over, and we are free again to travel to see our friends and family for the holiday. Every holiday season we all take some time to reflect on the true meaning of the holidays. For July 4th I think we should all pause and think about the true me [...]

AI Based Compliance Automation with RMail

May 10, 2021 / in Blog, Tech Essentials / by Zafar Khan, RPost CEO

Is the End of Multitasking Here? What do Napoleon, Robert Oppenheimer, and Abraham Lincoln have in common (aside from being famous)? Allegedly, they were all horrible multitaskers. In fact, multitasking, or the ability to deal with more than one discrete task at once, is not necessarily something we humans were ever naturals at. For tens of thousands of years, we as a species were hard-wired to go deep on specific tasks like hunting, building shelters, painting caves [...]

January 28, 2021 / in Blog, Encryption/Security / by Zafar Khan, RPost CEO

No, RMail Recommends™ AI Will Not Take Over the World The concept of artificial intelligence (AI) has a long history in science fiction. Many historians cite the 1927 film, Metropolis as the first on-screen appearance of robots that had some kind of machine intelligence. Since then, AI has not been treated as kindly or with as much wonder. 2001: A Space Odyssey, the Terminator movies and dozens of other films usually have AI as a sinister force bent on the [...]

Innovation-Driven Email Encryption and E-Signature with RMail and RSign

January 25, 2021 / in Blog, Tech Essentials / by Zafar Khan, RPost CEO

Now Let’s Really Start The 2020s 2021 may now be well underway. The government is starting to drop more money from helicopters, potentially trillions more upon the trillions already. I am not sure what this means for the Bitcoin crowd (I won’t bore you with my speculation on this unless you ask…). But, we at RPost and Tech Essentials are a hopeful bunch, and as I wrote in an  [...]

Have No Fear, High Tech Quarantines are Here! If you are stuck on a cruise ship in the South China Sea, it might be a good time to fear the new coronavirus. But if you are living in a modern city, have no fear. High tech quarantines are here. Your government can impose (and enforce) quarantines on those who they think may be infected—and by remote control no less. If you sneeze too often with Alexa listening or Ring sees that you look a little feverish when you a [...]

Of Course, Alexa has Control of Your House

May 28, 2018 / in Blog, General / by Zafar Khan, RPost CEO

Recent reports of the amazing eavesdropping power and home control Amazon’s Alexa has (similar to other voice-assistances) should not surprise. Its inherent in how these virtual assistants work. Alexa has to always be listening to be able to respond to a voice command that may come from you yelling across the kitchen. She has to be ready to respond to back-and-forth question-response to receive further clarifying instructions if needed, so she often may keep listening in case [...]

The Race to Control Your Home: Artificial Intelligence is Here

November 18, 2016 / in Blog, General / by Zafar Khan, RPost CEO

Even as early adopters today are already speaking with their household appliances, lighting systems, home security network, and computing devices through cutting-edge artificial intelligence (AI) enabled systems, one question comes to mind. Which AI system will lead the way to eventual mass market adoption: Amazon’s Alexa, Apple’s homeKit, Microsoft’s Cortana personal assistant, or perhaps the recently announced Google Assistant? Each system offers a fast-growing dose of cloud-enabled arti [...]
