Chelsfield Announce NEW Consultancy to assist firms move to the cloud
For many years the core business of Chelsfield Solutions has been to design custom engineered solutions for organisations with specific needs. However, undertaking this enormously-varied work has exposed another general need for today's world. 
Chelsfield have therefore set up a new consultancy, imaginatively called Chelsfield Consultants to assist organisations take advantage of the rapidly growing number of service providers that offer a bewildering array of hosted services. Surprisingly, not only SME's but many corporate organisations have totally erroneous beliefs about what the cloud is, and jump straight in taking the advice from service providers.    
It has been found that firms both large and small don't really understand the advantages, and tend towards a utopian view. In contrast many also are oblivious to the pitfalls especially over security, accessibility and ownership of key data. Chelsfield Consultants offer truly impartial management of projects large and small.

Chelsfield Introduce Latest Version Of It's Stream Cipher Library
The continuing news concerning the lack of data security by some UK government departments (including the MOD) has once again prompted Chelsfield to make available the latest version of its encryption library to third party software vendors. 
As a consequence, these Chelsfield routines are being used by many blue chip corporate organisations, both in the UK and aboard. The library features a proprietary one way key hash and polymorphic transformation techniques making it a very strong stream cipher that's fast enough to be used on-the-fly in most applications. The code is less than 140k bytes, is self contained and does not rely on the Windows API.

Chelsfield now looking to development an easy to use Security Awareness Programs for Banking Staff.
Any security system complex or simple is only effective if the staff operating the system are diligent. Chelsfield recognises the need for effective training and continued reminders to help staff remain aware of security requirements.  
Having been approached by a major bank, Chelsfield are currently looking at the specification of a simple-to-use Security Awareness Training Program with a graphics rich GUI that all members of staff can complete in around twenty minutes. The system can be tailored to train staff in any organisation to do their part in order to keep company equipment, premises and key information safe.

The Need for Encryption - Is the Penny Finally Dropping?
UK Government departments and corporate industry are still failing to apply adequate standards for data security. Details of nearly 100 cases of data breaches, two thirds committed by government departments or other public sector bodies have been passed to the authorities, said Richard Thomas the UK Information Commissioner.
Chelsfield security systems can work in the background, this overcomes the essential problem which is that staff are mostly unaware of how sensitive data can leak out, or what needs to be done to prevent it. Education is also a key factor, inadequate security management and awareness of how personal information can be used to forge authentication to provide illegal access to sensitive data is also lacking
A new chairman of the Information Commission, Christopher Graham, was appointed in June of this year. Since then it all seems a bit quiet.  Is the penny finally dropping? - we don't think so!

Chelsfield Encryption Class Wrapper V3.0
Chelsfield Encryption Library components have been in use since 2001 by many organisations both large and small, however, these have been sold as part of bundled packages from third party software vendors.  Now though, a new initiative has been launched to make the encryption class library accessible directly to programmers at a low cost.
Encryption Class library (ECL) components are now available  through the large distribution houses such as CNET and Microsoft Marketplace but are not sold through by Chelsfield directly, unless connected to a specific development application.  Chelsfield offers direct technical support and free support is included for the first year together with any updates as soon as these are available
