Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Updated A system called DDD, which removes the need for an ISP for connecting to various devices including PCs, mobile phones, and interactive television, is causing a stir in the City. Several multinationals, computer and telecomms firms are talking to London-based Keith Grant to acquire the technology, according to what could be "a leaked report". Investor site, UK Invest reported its hunt for the mysterious Grant yesterday. DDD is claimed to offer fast data transfer to a client, whether it's a mobile or a PC, without using the TCP/IP Internet protocols. It can cut out Internet retailers and internet service providers (ISPs), while also offering electronic mail systems and free telephone access. We contacted Keith Grant, who emailed back, saying: "I do not know how information about DDD has been obtained. DDD is protected by confidentiality and nondisclosure agreements between all parties concerned. I am not prepared to get into any discussions or disclose the companies negotiating for the purchase of DDD or at what stage negotiations are." And so there we are. We don't know what DDD stands for, we don't know what it does, and in fact we know next to nothing about it, or even if it's real. If it is real, a lot of .com companies and ISPs will be very worried. ® So have you seen DDD in action? Do you know what the acronym stands for? Then give us a shout here.
