What is a Virtual Private Network or VPN?

Virtual Private Network or VPN is a program which allows users to create a secure connection to another network over the internet. It creates a safe connection over a less secure network, such as the public internet. It works by utilizing security procedures and tunneling protocols. Simply put, a VPN creates a virtual encrypted tunnel between the user and a remote server operated by a VPN service. In thus creating, all internet traffic is routed through this tunnel, so the…

Security Compliance at Cloudflare

Cloudflare believes trust is fundamental to helping build a better Internet. One way Cloudflare is helping our customers earn their users’ trust is through industry standard security compliance certifications and regulations. Security compliance certifications are reports created by independent, third-party auditors that validate  and document a company’s commitment to security. These external auditors will conduct a rigorous review of a company’s technical environment and evaluate whether or not there are thorough controls – or safeguards – in place to protect…

A free Argo Tunnel for your next project

Argo Tunnel lets you expose a server to the Internet without opening any ports. The service runs a lightweight process on your server that creates outbound tunnels to the Cloudflare network. Instead of managing DNS, network, and firewall complexity, Argo Tunnel helps administrators serve traffic from their origin through Cloudflare with a single command. We built Argo Tunnel to remove the burden of securing and connecting servers to the Internet. This new model makes it easier to run a service…

With precise control, researchers could make a mouse sing or not on command — ScienceDaily

Researchers at Duke University have isolated a cluster of neurons in a mouse’s brain that are crucial to making the squeaky, ultrasonic ‘songs’ a male mouse produces when courting a potential mate. In fact, they now understand these neurons well enough to be able to make a mouse sing on command or to silence it so that it can’t sing, even when it wants to impress a mate. This level of understanding and control is a key advancement in the…

the view from the front lines

Growing up in the age of technology has made it too easy for me to take the presence of the Internet for granted. It’s hard to imagine not being able to go online and connect with anyone in the world, whether I’m speaking with family members or following activists planning global rallies in support of a common cause. I find that as I forget the wonder of being connected, I become jaded. I imagine that many of you reading this…

Specific multinutrient combination benefits patients with early stage Alzheimer’s disease — ScienceDaily

A new longitudinal study has shown that a nutritional drink designated a “food for special medical purposes” containing the multinutrient combination Fortasyn Connect® can benefit patients with the earliest stages of Alzheimer’s disease (AD), mild cognitive impairment, who are at risk of progressing to the dementia stage of AD, report scientists in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease Reports. The purpose of this study was to assess whether this multinutrient combination can benefit patients with mild cognitive impairment who are at…

Drug activates sensory proteins in aquatic model of human hearing — ScienceDaily

The ability to hear depends on proteins to reach the outer membrane of sensory cells in the inner ear. But in certain types of hereditary hearing loss, mutations in the protein prevent it from reaching these membranes. Using a zebrafish model, researchers at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine have found that an anti-malarial drug called artemisinin may help prevent hearing loss associated with this genetic disorder. In a recent study, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy…

Recreating embryonic conditions at break sites can help bones heal faster — ScienceDaily

Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago and the University of Pennsylvania have developed a unique technique that uses stem cells and flexible implantable bone-stabilizing plates to help speed the healing of large breaks or defects. The technique allows the stem cells applied to break sites to experience some mechanical stress, as they do in developing embryos. These forces may help encourage stem cells to differentiate into cartilage and bone, as well as encourage other cells in the bone…
