Dogs on Deployment

Hello again #HasheFollowers!

What has Hashe done this week? Well, Stay tuned, because #FunTings abound.

Hashe Computer Solutions (Pvt.) Ltd. has joined hands with Dogs on Deployment or DoD, which is a website for military members (active, serving, or retired) to care for their dogs when they are deployed. When pet owners are called to action, their pets are also ‘deployed’ to safe, temporary homes until their owners come back stateside or home. Here at Hashe, we are developing the mobile application for the DoD website. With Hashe on the job, it won’t be long before you are able to check on everything to do with your pet’s care on your phone and communicate directly with their foster parents from your mobile application.

Dogs on Deployment cares for the pets of active military members. DoD is a non-profit organization, and it’s going very well. Over 1,860 or one thousand sixty pets in need have found temporary homes with DoD Boarders so far. There are more every day and that is a good thing. That means that this platform, which was made to help those pet owners and pets are working, and all parties are comfortable and happy with the arrangements being made.


“No pet should ever be surrendered to a shelter due to a military commitment. DoD exists to help military members keep their pets by alleviating the need for pet relinquishment from military members due to the hardships of deployments.” – DoD

Dogs on Deployment has done an amazing job over the years of closing the gaps between soldiers and their peace of mind when they are serving their country abroad. Hashe Computer Solutions (Pvt.) Ltd. has joined the project as well, working hard to make it even easier to join the DoD family. Hashe is current building the mobile application that will make your pets accessible through your phones.

How was DoD born?

Dogs on Deployment was founded in June of 2011 by Captain Alisa Johnson (Pictured Above) and her husband Lieutenant Commander Shawn Johnson. They both serve by defending their country as pilots in the US Marine Corps and Navy, respectively. As they both work, and sometimes at the same time, they found a common problem with other military members: Pet Care. They found they needed a program like DoD, and that resulted in the birth of Dogs on Deployment.

How many people do you know that see something that everybody needs, and actually do something about it? Captain Johnson and Lieutenant Commander Johnson are smart people, and their non-profit is giving so many soldiers peace of mind when they are abroad. Dogs on Deployment is an essential part of military-member pet-owners’ lives, and with so many people volunteering to foster animals when their loved ones are away, DoD takes away the hassle and brings to you peace of mind.

Hashe Computer Solutions (Pvt.) Ltd. has been busy developing the mobile application for Dogs on Deployment these past few months. Our CEO Mamoon Rashid supports this project immensely as he has 5 dogs of his own, so he can empathize with those brave soldiers that have animals, and no arrangements to take care of them.  Our DoD team here at Hashe has been working tirelessly to bring you the best possible app so that you are able to communicate with your pet’s foster families as smoothly as possible. Our partner at Halogen Designs, James George, brought us this amazing project to be a part of! The mobile app currently build developed for both iOS and Android platform compatibility. Our team lead Mubasher Ikram leads the project with verve and vision. You may remember him #HasheFollowers, from the Photo Competition Hashe, had a few weeks ago!

IT Outsourcing

Hello again #HasheFollowers!

What has Hashe done this week? Well, Stay tuned, because #FunTings abound.

What shall we discuss today? IT Outsourcing and Offshoring seems to be a popular topic, and lucky for us, Hashe specializes in exactly that.

IT Outsourcing is a phrase used to describe the process of obtaining an IT resource, or hiring a resource, outside of an organizational structure for IT (Information Technology) purposes (Beal, 2019). This is used to make functions easier for small, medium, and large sized organizations. Everything from setting up a website to begin with, to writing code for an online payment portal, to continuous monitoring after a project submission is part of the package when you sign up with Hashe. “Outsourcing is going ‘out’ to find the ‘source'”, is a good and simple explanation for outsourcing IT jobs (Kubiczek, 2018). When you leave the confines of your own organisation and contract someone else to work, that is called outsourcing.

Thus, Hashe’s role in the IT world as a software outsourcing company is well-chosen and well-positioned. We aid companies and people in sketching, designing, creating a prototype, developing, and testing software. We creating custom designs for all of our clients, and with input taken directly from you, our goal is 100% Client Satisfaction, which we achieve every time. We provide and allow businesses to set up a virtual team of developers, which makes it easier for organizations to handle their business and let us do what we do best, provide a steller service at an amazingly competitive price!

Depending upon the location, there are three types of outsourcing:

  • Onshore or Local Outsourcing – A business would hire a software company inside its own country.
  • Nearshore Outsourcing – A business would hire a software company established in a neighboring country.
  • Offshore Outsourcing – The most popular type of outsourcing, where a business would hire a software company in a foreign country. For e.g., if your business is based in the USA and you outsource to Pakistan, you are doing offshore outsourcing (ibid).

Depending on the project, there are three types of Time-Frame Models Hashe offers:

  • Hourly Model: This model is the right fit for small and long-term projects, where you will be charged based on the number of hours worked.
  • Part-time Retainer Model: In this part-time model, clients pays to secure the services of Hashe Computer Solutions. Hashe’s services on ‘retainer’, which means Hashe is being paid to stay under contract. If we haven’t spoken in a week or a month, that is no issue because that is the model you chose.
  • Full-time Dedicated Model: This is the most popular model in the offshore outsourcing business. Companies hire a dedicated team for a project and Hashe charges accordingly (ibid).

Outsourcing has benefits for both parties. Companies or businesses that are thinking about Outsourcing, should consider these next points (Gartner, 2019). Outsourcing can:

  1. Enable enterprises to reduce costs
  2. Accelerate time to market
  3. Take advantage of external expertise
  4. Take advantage of assets
  5. Take advantage of intellectual property
  6. Utilize utility services
  7. Use software as a service and cloud-enabled enterprise
  8. Help clients to develop the right sourcing strategies and vision
  9. Select the right IT service providers
  10. Structure the best possible contracts

The Benefits of Offshore Outsourcing far outweigh those that you receive from creating your own software team, hiring designers, interviewing potential candidates, and dealing with a whole additional department in your enterprise. By offshore outsourcing, your company and business reduces and control operating costs, and “you eliminate the costs associated with hiring an employee, such as management oversight, training, health insurance, employment taxes, retirement plans, etc” (Corpcomputerservices.com, 2019).

When you outsource, it improves company focus. Your business can not do everything, and that’s okay, because Hashe is here. Outsourcing lets you focus on your core skills and capabilities, and that is how every business has its expertise. Your return on investment is greater because it is more profitable to specialize in a few things, than be adequate in a lot of things. Your business also reduces its risk by hiring outside professionals, both financially and in reputation. Outsourced IT companies like Hashe, have proper industry training and certifications required of their staff, and thus keep up on best industry practices and technological advancements to ensure that our clients receive the best service there is. Leave the hard stuff to the professionals.

Website Security, Cookies, and CyberAttacks

Hello again #HasheFollowers!

What has Hashe done this week? Well, Stay tuned, because #FunTings abound.

What shall we discuss today? Website security, Cookies, and Privacy

“What is website security? Website security is any action or application taken to ensure website data is not exposed to cybercriminals or to prevent exploitation of websites in any way” (Tammany, 2018).

There are 2 aspects to web security: the Infrastructure level and Application level. The infrastructure is the website itself, the ideas, the core of what you are trying to protect. The application level has two stipulations, that there are separate security mechanisms for web applications and mobile applications. The web applications have a security feature checklist of do’s and don’ts, requirements and double-check features, to ensure that a website has a strong level of security as a minimum.

Website security protects your website from a number of malicious threats. A few are DDoS attacks, malware, blacklisting, exploitation of vulnerabilities in your system, and defacement of intellectual (and possibly physical) property. This is what each threat means:

DDoS Attacks: These attacks can slow or crash your site entirely, making it inaccessible to visitors.

Malware: Short for “malicious software,” malware is a very common threat used to steal sensitive customer data, distribute spam, allow cybercriminals to access your site, and more.

Blacklisting: Your site may be removed from search engine results and flagged with a warning that turns visitors away if search engines find malware.

Vulnerability exploits: Cyber criminals can access a site and data stored on it by exploiting weak areas in a site, like an outdated plugin.

Defacement: This attack replaces your website’s content with a cyber criminal’s malicious content.” (ibid).

Four main reasons why every website needs security:

  1. Think of security like a transaction between you and your landlord. They provide the housing, but You have you lock your own front-door; otherwise what is the point of finding, renting, decorating, setting up, and moving in at all?
  2. Website security is cheaper than a cyber attack. I’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again. It is not worth not having security as “[c]yberattacks can cost small businesses as much as $427 per minute of downtime” (Tammany, 2018).
  3. Reputations remain intact, and so does your customer list. If your site is protected, then everything you want to be on your site is there and vice versa. If your website is compromised in any way, “[s]tudies show that 65 percent of customers who have had their information stolen by a compromised website won’t return to that site” (ibid).
  4. Malware or malicious software, and the existence of a cyber attack can be difficult to even register. Malware can be subtly embedded into a website and concealed, so your website may be infected and you may not even realize it (ibid).

Cookies. What can I say about cookies?

Well, cookies can be helpful (in fact, most are designed to be), but they can also be malicious. They are delicious in real life, if you’re lucky, and complicated on the Internet, regardless. Simply, cookies accept that information that you give voluntarily. Most often cookies are used for storage, to save images from the website that’s issuing them, so it doesn’t take as long to load, and it doesn’t have to be retrieved all the way from the server. The time saved has a big enough margin that everyone does it and deploys cookies.

Bad cookies though, they can really ruin your website, mess up your code, and leave again without your ever knowing they were there, and/or that you gave access to them. Bad cookies can store malicious software on your computer, on your server, and can then infect the rest of your online network. They can open back-doors and just sit there and gather information like a spy, while sending all that proprietary information back to where it came from in the first place. Then think further, all this could be happening and you could not even know it, or it could have already happened and you would never find out.

All this though, is Not meant to scare you, but inform you of the dangers out there, and to remind you to be secure. Not having website security is like building the house of your dreams and then going to sleep with the front door un-locked. Now, read this fact: There is a hacker attack every 39 seconds (Milkovich, 2018). Think about this: Every. 39. Seconds. Now imagine your website or application being hacked because of laziness or a simple mistake. Do not let that happen. Contact Hashe on our ‘Contact Us‘ Page and ask for help. Asking for help never hurt anybody.

What does Hashe do in terms of website security? What measures do we have in place?

We have quite an extensive security check list that we have to follow while we’re coding, what to do, not to do, and what to look out for. Some examples are cross site scripting, insecure direct object reference, Click Jacking Techniques, and more. You can make your list too with a little help and some research. Hashe is always there to help, just head over to our Offshore page and ask.

Now we know that there is a hacker attack every 39 seconds. Simply too short a time to conceive. What you may not know however, is that by 2020 there will be roughly 200 billion connected devices (Milkovich, 2018). By these numbers, the amount of opportunity cyber-criminals will have is basically unlimited. Hack after hack, and try after try, and time after time, the risk is just too high not to have website security. So, moral of the story people: Lock your Doors, whether your house is digital or corporeal.

Code & Me

Hello again #HasheFollowers!

What has Hashe done this week? Well, Stay tuned, because #FunTings abound.

As you’ve probably guessed, this post is about Code. First, what is code? A series of zeroes and ones manifesting as text, images, animations, and algorithms. Those are behind the scene though. The actual ‘coding’ you see on TV where hackers are typing at ultra speeds breaking into banks or space stations, is what we do. But we “code” websites, web/mobile applications, and web/mobile portals. This means we build them from the ground up, coding our way through the pages, slowly and steadily typing the functions we need on a bunch of different programs like Java, HTML, Angular JS, WordPress, Laravel, and I can go on for a while.

Now think about this, each of those programs has its own computer language, some of which can be embedded into other programming languages, some of which have to be used in conjunction with other programs, and some programs are non-compatible with others. We have experts here at Hashe Computer Solutions (Pvt.) Ltd. for each and every one of these programs, and a lot of people are experts in multiple programs and multiple programming languages. That is thousands of line of code a day, on multiple programs, on anywhere from 2-6 projects that are being worked on simultaneously by any one person.

Now to put that in perspective, think of it this way and place yourself in this analogy. You are a chef (Chef = Coder here). You have in front of you various ingredients: vegetables, fruits, meats, cheeses, sweets, etc., a whole selection of things to choose. Now, think of all your ingredients as your basic “cooking” skills aka ‘coding skills’. Still with me? Okay. Now imagine all the different types of Cuisines there are: Chinese, Italian, French, Mexican, Japanese, Thai, Spanish, etc. These are your Programs (Cuisines = Programs). Now think about how different each cuisine is from each other, how it takes to make each type of cuisine, how well some cuisines go with each other and how some are bad together, how some require more effort and focus and some require less, etc. That’s how programs work as well.

Now to bring an end to this analogy, as a chef you can specialize in what cuisine you want to cook professionally, just like coders specialize in programs. Now as a chef, you can specialize in more than one cuisine, probably those that go well together. You are now an expert ‘Chef’ in your field, cooking more than one cuisine together and excelling at it. As a ‘coder’, professionally known as a Programmer or a Developer, you are an expert in more than one program and programming language, and thus an added value to those you work with. That is what and whom Hashe has in its ranks, value added.

Here at Hashe, we have women working as Programmers, Developers, as Designers, and as Heads of Department. Women in power, in a Male Dominated Industry, supported and encouraged, this is how we make Change Happen. Women of all backgrounds and walks of life are working at Hashe Computer Solutions, a company that is part of the ‘Solution’. Below are two of our female designers and developers, working on assignment and creating, editing, and generating Designs and also thousands of lines of code.

What Else Happened This Week? Well, It was International Cat Day on the 29th of October, this past Tuesday! What else? Oh yes, Halloween! October 31st was yesterday! We had small gathering of witches, warlocks alike, goblins, ogres, and vampires alike. We had one small twist in our Halloween though (how fitting for the end of Spooktober) and mixed it with Cultural Day here at Hashe, thus creating the best of both worlds.
