CloudCraze EVP Andrew Witherspoon: For Successful B2B, Set Aside Expectations


“If there’s anything true about B2B service, you have to do it in the context of the customers themselves in order to be successful. That’s our philosophy,” said CloudCraze EVP Andrew Witherspoon. “What is the purpose of CRM and marketing? It’s to reach out, find and engage prospects, and to move them through a buying cycle. All those capabilities are on a CRM platform. Most other architectures can do all that on one platform, but then they’re sending you off to another platform to take an order.”

Car Hacker Working With GM To Fix OnStar Vulnerabilities

Connected cars promise better safety and security, but, like anything connected to a network, they can be susceptible to attacks from hackers.

And General Motors Companyis just the latest automaker in the news due to cyber security concerns.

Security researcher—or “white hat” hacker—Samy Kamkar has posted a video on YouTube showing him using a device called “OwnStar,” which allows an unauthorized user to access some of the functionality of GM’s OnStar system.

During the demonstration, he is able to unlock, remote start, and track the vehicle.

Fortunately, driving away isn’t on the menu, as the device can’t mimic a key fob. Gaining access to the vehicle requires an attacker to be near a user who opens their OnStar app, but the location of the actual vehicle is unimportant.

The video above includes a basic breakdown of how the attack works.

According to Kamkar, the exploit works indefinitely, and is possible due to a flaw in the mobile software, not the vehicle itself. And while he is set to present his findings during the Def Con hacking conference—scheduled for August 6 through 9 in Las Vegas—he says GM engineers have been proactive in working to solve the problem.

The news comes on the heels of a Fiat Chrysler Automobiles recall of 1.4 million vehicles that was prompted after Wired magazine demonstrated hackers taking control of a 2014 Jeep Cherokee.

And it’s only a matter of time before the next vehicle hack is revealed.

iPhone 4S users rejoice: Apple iOS 9 to be optimized for older devices

iPhone4S
In theory, the release of a new OS version from Apple is supposed to be a reason to cheer, but if you own anything but the latest hardware, that’s rarely been the case — until now.

Supposedly the upcoming iOS 9 will be explicitly tested on older hardware — which should enable much higher levels of overall performance. Hopefully this will put an end to the days of iOS rendering older devices disagreeably slow come upgrade time.
