Today GlobalSign, DigiCert, Comodo, and NGINX announced a joint effort and a sponsored development contract, to enhance the NGINX open source web server to support OCSP-stapling. This collaboration further advances the SSL ecosystem by improving the privacy, reliability and revocation checking for all websites using the NGINX web server currently run by more than 25 percent of the top 1,000 websites, and by 70 million websites on the Internet overall.
The team at NGINX is delighted that GlobalSign, DigiCert, and Comodo support the OCSP stapling enhancement to the NGINX webserver, said Igor Sysoev CTO and principal architect at NGINX, We have been continuously working on enhancements to NGINX that increase performance, reliability and security. With improved SSL functionality, we expect the vast majority of our customers to share our enthusiasm for increased safety on the Internet.
The Online Certificate Status Protocol (OCSP) is used to present the revocation status, or current validity, of an SSL certificate, and provides an alternative to the Certificate Revocation List (CRL) method. OCSP offers efficiencies when compared to the CRL method, which requires the client, such as a browser, to download potentially large databases of revocation information reflecting the status as of its last publication date In contrast, OCSP can provide more up-to-date status information by allowing the browser to query the revocation status at the very point of encountering the certificate, without relying on cached information.
OCSP-stapling enhances the basic OCSP method by allowing the presenter of a certificate, such as the website hosting the SSL certificate, to deliver the OCSP response to the browser instead of it being delivered by the issuing CA. By keeping the certificate response within the web host and not with the CA, OCSP-stapling ensures the browser receives the same response performance for the certificate status information as it does for the website content. This helps to maintain a high-quality user experience and avoids delays otherwise caused by request volume or network congestion that can slow CA response under the standard OCSP method. Compared with basic OCSP, privacy concerns are also addressed, as the CA is no longer receiving revocation requests directly from the browser.
In a collective statement by GlobalSign, DigiCert, and Comodo, GlobalSign Chief Technology Officer Ryan Hurst stated, by addressing the issues holding back common usage of OCSP, NGINX is contributing toward a unified goal of widespread OCSP adoption across all webservers on the Internet. This project is another major initiative where certification authorities are working closely to improve the ecosystem for everyone relying on SSL for a safer, private and more secure Internet experience.
NGINX is the second most popular open source webserver and, according to the W3Techs server survey, is currently used by more than 25 percent of the top 1,000 most visited websites. The new version with full OCSP-stapling support will be available in late August 2012. IIS on Microsoft Server 2008 and Apache 2.3.6 already support OCSP-stapling; thus, the enhancements to NGINX mean that nearly all webservers can now deploy this critical technology.
For current release information on the new version of NGINX, please visit http://www.nginx.com.
Run by the busiest websites on the Internet, NGINX enables businesses worldwide to match rapidly increasing demand for faster web experience without incurring unnecessary costs in capital investments or time. In almost 10 years of its history, NGINX became key software component of most famous web architectures. Today NGINX serves over 25 percent of the top 1,000 websites, and 70 million of websites overall. Successful online services, transforming and shaping the future of Internetsuch as Netflix, Pinterest, CloudFlare, Airbnb, WordPress, GitHub, SoundCloud, Zynga, Eventbrite, Zappos, Media Temple, Heroku, RightScale, Engine Yard, use NGINX as part of their infrastructures.
In July 2011, NGINX founded its commercial arm, Nginx, Inc, to facilitate the development of NGINX. For more information, please visit http://www.nginx.com.

Content marketing are the latest buzz words within the online marketing industry but what does it mean and how does it relate to SMEs?
Marketing strategies are not just about promotions and discounts. Brands that offer value through content can also gain a competitive edge.
Business owners need to engage potential customers with useful high quality content to build trust and turn prospects into customers whilst increasing search engine performance. Here, Addpeople highlight 5 ways that business owners can build their brand online.
For SEO reasons at least, its essential for most types of small businesses to get blogging. It is free (aside from the time to do it!) and easy way of regularly adding content which is visible to search engines, shares across social media and builds trust.
SMEs should have a space on their website where prospect and customers can read about the positive effects of their products or services. Case studies should ideally contain a problem, a solution and demonstrate the results achieved. A great way for businesses to showcase the value they add with their products and services.
Web videos are increasingly popular and 8 out of 10 internet users now watch video content online. An engaging and interesting video can add another dimension to a businesses website, providing a visually more interesting way of showcasing products and services. Product demonstrations, tutorials and interview videos are all potentially effective tools in the small business owners armoury.
SMEs should consider adding a subscribe option on their blog page so customer and prospects can sign up to receive their newsletters. Drafting newsletters doesnt have to be a time consuming task, and owners should simply inform prospects on relevant topics where their business can add value and potential customers need help.
Business owners can create material specifically to inform customers and prospects, such as presentations, webinars and eBooks. SMEs should use their industry expertise to shed light on up-and-coming trends and explain the benefits of their products or services. Using images, graphs and infographics will make the content more engaging.
Business owners prepared to make the time investment to produce content within their marketing strategy should also stick to the following rules of thumb.
1. Be realistic on how much time and effort is required. Focus on areas that will bring the biggest return.
2. Use the right distribution channels. Social media is obvious, but look for relevant industry blogs and publications to get content syndicated outside the normal site and social network loop.
3. Be consistent in opinion and allow time for the strategy to grow organically. The more quality content thats out there the more visible and trusted the business will ultimately become.
Add People the SEO, PPC and website design specialist have been working with SMEs for over 10 years and have recently been included in the New Media Age Top 100 agencies in the UK.

PAYDAY-LOANS-UK.ORG, released a new article, which explains how to use payday loans to improve your credit score. Green Spiral Medias Joyce McNamara had interesting view thoughts to share:
Its not difficult to get a bad credit score she said. Sometimes things happen that are out of our control and we are forced to take actions that could eventually backfire. The result is worsened credit score, which leaves us in a tight spot. Getting out of situation like this could take years. But with payday loans, it can be a lot easier.
The article opens with a handy reminder: everyone can apply for a payday loan, regardless of his or her credit score. Payday loan provides dont make thorough background check on your credit history, having a paying job at the time of the application is much more important to them. So, borrowers can apply for such loan without any concerns. In fact, the article claims, they can do better than that and improve their credit reputation a pay day loan.
When having a bad credit score, it will most likely be hard for you to get a bank loan in order to cover any outstanding expenses. And defaulting on payments such as mortgage, credit card payments or utility bills will only do further damage on your credit reputation. Its a vicious circle that may seem impossible to break, but a payday loan can help you here. By using the service youll be able to cover your expenses on time, which can only improve your credit score.
The other way in which payday loans can potentially help you improve your credit score is if you pay them back on time. The article tells that most of the payday loan providers work with credit reference agencies. This means that when you pay back your loan as agreed, the lender may report that to a credit reference agency. This will help you rebuild your credit reputation and develop a good relationship with the respective provider.
You should be careful, though, the article warns. Failing to pay back in time will result in the further damage of your credit score. Luckily, its not really hard to pay a payday loan on time. You just have to be careful never to borrow more than you can afford to repay back.

When Yankee Stadium opens in April 2009, GuestAssist by qtags will be in the starting lineup.
The New York Yankees, Major League Baseball’s most storied franchise, have selected GuestAssist to improve fans’ game-day experience at the state-of-the-art facility, currently under construction in the Bronx.
GuestAssist provides instant two-way, text messaging-based communication between ticket holders and event staff, allowing for improved management of safety, security and guest services. The Yankees are the first Major League Baseball team scheduled to implement the system for the upcoming season.
“GuestAssist is the clear industry leader in stadium communication services, with a proven track record in facilities across the National Football League,” said Yankees Chief Operating Officer Lonn A. Trost. “We believe it will make a big difference in our guest services, enabling us to provide the best possible experience for Yankees fans watching their team play in Yankee Stadium.”
GuestAssist will provide a simple text message code that will permit fans to send questions, concerns or requests via their mobile phones to Yankee Stadium’s Command and Control Center. The number will be communicated to fans via Stadium signage, public address announcements and other means.
A single staff member can handle and respond to incoming requests through GuestAssist’s customized software interface. The operator can send reply messages directly to the fan’s phone to answer questions or obtain more information, and, if necessary, can quickly dispatch safety/security, medical or guest services staff to the appropriate location.
GuestAssist will also provide the Yankees with post-event reporting and analysis of guests’ concerns which will help the Yankees improve staffing, fine-tune Yankee Stadium security procedures and better understand Yankees fans’ common questions and further concerns.
Trost further stated, “This key feature will allow us to identify issues and make adjustments, all based on the input we receive from fans. It could be anything from where to station support personnel to improving directional signage. GuestAssist’s post-event reporting will enable us to see trends and respond as needed.”
GuestAssist has a number of new features under development to expand the system’s capabilities, said Jeremy Konko, chief operating officer of qtags. But it has already had a major positive impact for professional sports franchises using it.
“One of the best GuestAssist stories we’ve heard is one about season ticket holders who traveled two hours to a game only to find they had left their tickets at home,” said Konko. “They used GuestAssist to quickly contact Guest Services and were helped within minutes. That’s the kind of situation that used to cause a great deal of frustration for guests. Now, for teams like the Yankees and others who are using GuestAssist, it’s an opportunity to showcase excellent customer service.”
In addition to the Yankees, GuestAssist is expanding its customer base to a wide range of other major college and professional sports venues and even non-sports events such as concerts and festivals, Konko said.
Houston-based qtags is a member of the Stadium Managers Association and the International Association of Assembly Managers.
GuestAssist is a web-based communications service that enables one-to-one text messaging communications between fans and guests and central stadium or facility operations. GuestAssist is currently licensed for use at venues across the U.S. such as:

Get Real Consulting collaborated with Microsoft to develop a geriatric personal health application for the City of Los Angeless innovative program Exergamers Wellness Club. Partners in Care Foundation and St. Barnabas Senior Services today unveiled the program which combines technology with evidence- based health education, exercise and overall health monitoring for senior citizens. Participants in the program use Kinect for Xbox 360 for exercise and monitor their usage and personal health information through Get Reals award- winning InstantPHR platform which is integrated with Microsofts HealthVault.
Program participants reported improved health and well-being which has motivated Microsoft and Get Real to expand the program to all senior centers in the Los Angeles Department of Aging service area. These results are due in part to the usability of the InstantPHR product which allows a broad range of users, including those with low computer literacy, to securely track their health data online through a custom, personalized patient portal.
The impact that has been seen with seniors who have participated in the program has been amazing,” says Robin Wiener, President and Co-Founder of Get Real Consulting. We are thrilled to work with the City of Los Angeles Department of Aging and Microsoft to continue to support seniors through InstantPHR in their quest to live happy and healthy lives.
Seniors compete in virtual bowling tournaments with contemporaries across the country and dance to a host of music choices using Kinect for XBOX 360. The ability for participants to then log onto their computer and track vital health data such as blood pressure and weight affords them the opportunity to realize the benefits of the program anytime, anywhere. Of the 34 seniors enrolled in the Exergamer Wellness Club, the majority reported significant health benefits. All enrollees say they feel happier and more energetic with one participant reporting the ability to forego artificial assistance when walking.
