Today's topics include Dell revealing its new security service, Google adopting stricter email authentication, Docker acquiring cloud service Tutum, and China continuing to hack U.S. companies.

At the Dell World 2015 show in Austin, Texas, Dell officials are showing off a security service that they say offers customers a new way of detecting and blocking advanced persistent threats. They’re now offering a technology preview of its SonicWall APT Protection Service, which will be available in both Dell firewalls and email security solutions, according to the company. The service, built atop sandbox technologies that use both system emulation and virtualization, will scan files of any size and hold onto files that could be malicious until a decision on them is made.

Google is tightening its policy for handling emails that fail the authentication checks of the Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting & Conformance (DMARC) standard. Starting June 2016, Google's policy will be to reject outright all emails that fail the DMARC checks to protect against domain spoofing attacks. John Rae-Grant, lead project manager for Gmail, said in a statement issued by DMARC.org that Google is committed to email authentication and starting in June 2016 will move to a stricter policy standard.

Docker Inc. has a full portfolio of products and services for organizations building and managing containers, but how do your users actually deploy containers? That's a question that Docker Inc., the lead commercial sponsor behind the open-source Docker container effort, is now answering with the acquisition of privately held Tutum. Ben Golub, CEO of Docker, said Tutum is a cloud service that will build, manage, and deploy Docker applications.

During Chinese President Xi Jinping's visit to the United States, an historic agreement was reached to limit malicious cyber-attacks between the United States and China. While the politicians made pledges, the facts on the ground a month later give little credence to the idea that much, if anything, has changed. Dmitri Alperovitch, co-founder and CTO of CrowdStrike, publicly reported that his company has seen continued attacks from Chinese government-backed threat actors over the past month. The attacks are new intrusion attempts from China that CrowdStrike caught, Alperovitch explained.
