HP Inc. has unveiled new additions to the Z by HP portfolio, the world’s most secure and manageable workstations designed to deliver all-out, uncompromised performance for users in Nigeria and other parts of the world.

Z by HP workstations are built for professional creators and power users who need performance, reliability, broad hardware expandability, and the versatility to get the job done in any work environment.

Due to disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and the shift to remote working, HP has adapted its technology to meet the needs of the mobile workforce by incorporating powerhouse performance into dense form factors with ZCentral 4R, Z2 Mini, and ZBook Fury for IT specialists, architects and data scientists among others.

Some of the additions to the Z by HP portfolio include ZCentral that enables users to create, connect and collaborate from any location; Z2 Portfolio which gives new levels of power and ZBook which enables terrific performance for any visualisation.

There’s also ZCentral 4R, the world’s most powerful and highest GPU in a 1U rack workstation; Z2 Mini G5, the world’s most powerful mini workstation running Adobe Creative Suite; Z2 Small Form Factor G5, the world’s most powerful desktop workstation and Z2 Tower G5, world’s most expandable entry workstation.

Others include the ZBook Fury 15 G7, world’s most expandable 15-inch mobile workshop and ZBook Fury 17 G7, the world’s smallest 17-inch mobile workstation with RTX500.

The ZCentral 4R, the world’s most powerful 1U racked workstation for media and entertainment, product development, data science, and healthcare, is engineered to harness the power of a Z4 workstation in a 1U form factor and designed for high density in racked environments.

It is equipped with the latest Intel Xeon® W Processors (up to 18 CPU cores) and graphics options up to the NVIDIA® Quadro® RTX™ 8000, remote workers get professional-grade performance built for intense workloads.

ZCentral 4R also provides layers of security with an exterior lockable front panel; HP Security Suite preloaded inside the box, all while physically secure in a racked data closet.

The HP ZCentral, on the other hand, is the world’s first single-sourced remote workstation solution and with the addition of ZCentral 4R, enables workers to create better, connect, and collaborate seamlessly from remote locations. New updates to the solution helps address two top IT challenges: managing multiple remote devices at once and the increased security risk from more remote endpoint devices.

The new entry Z by HP desktop portfolio is built for today’s designers who are shaping the world around us. HP’s new powerful entry workstations, HP Z2 Mini G5, HP Z2 Small Form Factor G5, and HP Z2 Tower G5, take the latest processing power to another level, offering performance previously only available in high-end desktop workstations, and at an accessible price for any power user.

The new Z2 lineup brings performance gains, higher wattage power supplies for max configurability, and market-leading expandability. It’s now easier to build the ideal, ergonomic friendly, home office set-up that is purpose-built with well-being in mind.

The ZBook Power, HP’s most affordable mobile workstation, makes the power of the ZBook more accessible and ideal for STEAM students. The mobile workstation offers fast performance and improved thermals allowing for up to NVIDIA Quadro® T2000 graphics and Intel® Xeon® or Core i9 processors in a chassis that is now 19% smaller, 11% thinner, and nearly 10% lighter than the previous generation.

“Professional creators and power users need a curated experience that aligns to the way they work and live in today’s new normal” said Ify Afe, Managing Director, HP Nigeria.

“Our Z portfolio which would be available in Nigeria soon delivers the mobility, performance, and flexibility the creative community wants with innovative solutions like ZCentral 4R, designed to ensure access to the cutting-edge technology and security solutions needed to power the next creative breakthrough,” she added.

Millions of Cyber Attacks Launched on Nigeria, Others- Reports

There were 3.8 million malware attacks and 16.8 million Potentially Unwanted Applications (PUA) detections over a 7-month period in Nigeria, according to Kaspersky security solutions.

Millions of Cyber Attacks Launched on Nigeria, Others- Reports

Elsewhere in South Africa, there were almost 10 million malware attacks and a staggering 43 million PUA detections, showing the growing desperation of the attacks.

The company reported on 28 million malware attacks in 2020 and 102 million detections of potentially unwanted programs (pornware, adware etc.) accounted for by the beginning of August 2020.

These numbers show that it’s not only the malware that attacks users but also the “grey zone” programmes that grow in popularity and disturb their experiences, while users might not even know it is there.

Potentially unwanted applications (PUAs) are programmes that are usually not considered to be malicious by themselves.

However, they are generally influencing user experience in a negative way. For instance, adware fills user device with ads; aggressive monetising software propagates unrequested paid offers; downloaders may download even more various applications on the device, sometimes malicious ones.

calculating interim results of threat landscape activity in African countries, Kaspersky researchers noticed that PUAs attack users almost four times more often than traditional malware.

They also eventually reach more users: for instance, while in South Africa, the malware would attack 415,000 users in 7-months of 2020, the figure for PUA would be 736,000.

“The reason why ‘grey zone’ software is growing in popularity is that it is harder to notice at first and that if the programme is detected, its creators won’t be considered to be cybercriminals. The problem with them is that users are not always aware they consented to the installation of such programmes on their device and that in some cases, such programmes are exploited or used as a disguise for malware downloads,” said Denis Parinov, a security researcher at Kaspersky.

By taking a closer look at PUA, it becomes apparent that they are not only more widespread but also more potent than traditional malware.

Evaluating results over the same 7-month period in Nigeria, there were 3.8 million malware attacks and 16.8 million PUA detections – which is four times as much.

Kenyan and South African threat landscapes have been more intense. In South Africa, there were almost 10 million malware attacks and a staggering 43 million PUA detections.

Kenyan users faced even more malware attacks – around 14 million, and 41 million PUA appearances, Kaspersky said.

Tech Giants Strike Deal with Advertisers over Hate Speech

Web giants including Facebook have struck a deal with advertisers on how to identify harmful content such as hate speech, after an impasse over the issue which led to boycotts of the platform.

Tech Giants Strike Deal with Advertisers over Hate Speech

The agreement — which also included Twitter and YouTube — laid out for the first time a common set of definitions for hateful statements online.

In July, hundreds of advertisers including big-name consumer brands suspended advertising with Facebook as part of the #StopHateForProfit campaign, saying the social-media titan should do more to stamp out hatred and misinformation on its platform.

And earlier this month a group of celebrities — including Kim Kardashian, Leonardo DiCaprio and Katy Perry — stopped using Facebook and Instagram for 24 hours, to push a similar message.

The World Federation of Advertisers (WFA) said in a statement Wednesday: “Facebook, YouTube and Twitter, in collaboration with marketers and agencies through the Global Alliance for Responsible Media have agreed to adopt a common set of definitions for hate speech and other harmful content and to collaborate with a view to monitoring industry efforts to improve in this critical area.”

The alliance was founded by the WFA and includes other major trade bodies.

According to the WFA, key areas of agreement included applying the alliance’s common definitions of harmful content; developing reporting standards for such content; establishing independent oversight; and rolling out tools for keeping advertisements away from harmful content.

The WFA said that properly defining online hate speech would remove the current problem of different platforms using their own definitions, which it said made it difficult for companies to decide where to put their ads.

“As funders of the online ecosystem, advertisers have a critical role to play in driving positive change and we are pleased to have reached agreement with the platforms on an action plan and timeline in order to make the necessary improvements,” said Stephan Loerke, chief executive of the WFA.

Luis Di Como, executive vice-president of global media at Unilever, a major advertiser, sounded a note of cautious optimism.

He said: “The issues within the online ecosystem are complicated, and whilst change doesn’t happen overnight, today marks an important step in the right direction.”

Speaking in July, Facebook’s founder and chief executive Mark Zuckerberg said he remained adamant that the company did not want hate speech on the social network.

On Wednesday, the company’s vice-president for global marketing solutions, Carolyn Everson, said the agreement gave all parties “a unified language to move forward on the fight against hate online.”
