Adobe’s Data Security Breach Was Not Really the Creative Cloud

October 31st, 2013 15 comments

Adobe’s recent and regrettable data security breach has been getting a lot of headlines, but not always for the right reasons…

Read Adobe's Customer Security Alert FAQ

Although the sizeable breach has nothing to do in particular with Adobe’s new Creative Cloud offering, it has nonethe­less been scapegoated here.

A popular online photography site wrote, “The attack exposes a weakness in the company’s new Creative Cloud subscription model…”

Well, not really.

Adobe Forum posters say things like, “This makes me like Creative Cloud less.”

But in fact, the breach was not only for Creative Cloud customers, but rather for Adobe ID accounts generally – which most customers have for any type of product, including CS6 and earlier, Acrobat, Lightroom, and so on.

Creating such an account is/was required for Creative Suite 6 starting in May 2012.  It also happens during product registration and if you want to interact online with Adobe in almost any way.

On the Job Market? 50,000 Openings Require Adobe Nationwide

September 9th, 2011 4 comments

Free Download: The Adobe Job Feed App

Though the economic recession officially ended over two years ago, the job market remains pretty challenging. In the U.S. officially no new jobs were created last month, continuing a slowing trend from the spring – and this situation is currently a major focus of Washington. However, Adobe is one company that continues hiring new staff at a healthy pace, and more broadly, Adobe product skills remain in strong demand by employers worldwide.

Adobe Systems (the company itself) presently has 358 job openings around the globe (adding another 4% to their workforce) – but if you know Adobe software generally, then the opportunity is even larger. Right now there are nearly 50,000 employment openings across North America that require Adobe skills, and you can see these and browse for yourself with the free downloadable Adobe Job Feed app.

All major tools are represented here: Flash, Dreamweaver, Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, Acrobat, Premiere, After Effects, and so on. You can drill down to sort by city/state or ZIP code for jobs in your area, and then view the complete descriptions and even apply for positions directly from within your web browser.
