There was some interest, so I'll share some more details on that here. Our proof of concept encrypts messages in the producer before sending it through Apache Kafka. Kafka is not aware at all of the messages being encrypted and stores messages in ...

I would like to suggest integrating with Thunderbird (Mail Client) in the same manner as Microsoft Outlook. We have an issue where any spam emails going into our junk folder containg a virus give us an alert, even if the user never opens the file. We think these are more noise than signal, we would only want alerts if the file was read or activated.

A small recommendation to Symantec Team, Happy to see NBU 7.6 has given an option to manage the Oracle DB Backup with the new interface in the NBU Admin console itself, with the same way, why can’t they plan it for all database applications like SQL, Sybase and DB2. And same accordingly they have to plan in restore window as well like one restore window for all application data restore.
