New Media on Ulitzer
Online ad network Chitika this week broke down over 123 million impressions
across their 60,000+ publisher network and determined that the overwhelming
dominance of search engines is facing little, if any, threat from social
networks. Despite predictions that social media will replace search engines

Chitika broke down the top 65 referral sites across their network for seven

The recent spike in insider threats, coupled with a rise in compliance
considerations, has forced organizations to ensure only authorized users
access sensitive application functionality and data. Historically, user
entitlements or authorization logic has been embedded inside an application.
For example, if the user of an application meets specific conditions, such as
a specific role, access to that application function will be granted at

over time, then the application developer needs to modify the appli... (more)
