In our newest version of Symmetry, we address the tightened smart card standards to counter growing physical and cyber threats and as a result are making Symmetry fully compliant with Federal Identity Credential and Access Management (FICAM) standards.  We are making Symmetry easier to install for our integrators by changing how access permissions are downloaded to the door controllers.  While this may not sound like an important detail, every Symmetry installer will notice the difference and save time and money when they install Symmetry. We have expanded our Symmetry High Definition camera line and added two new cameras.  The cameras offer an affordable option with a great feature set.  This is another way we are ramping up our video offering.  All of the Symmetry HD cameras in the range include built-in advanced motion detection as standard, and contain an option to turn on high quality video content analytics right inside the cameras themselves. Alarms from the cameras can automatically trigger commands throughout Symmetry, thus enhancing the security capabilities. More

ImageWare Systems, Inc.

Fujitsu, T-Systems, and IBM are three Blue-Chip companies we have gone to market with. These large, established partners offer the support, brand name and worldwide cloud platform needed to seamlessly distribute our products. At the beginning of April, Fujitsu announced the kick-off and worldwide expansion of our partnership model with a dedicated sales team covering the Americas. Since then, Fujitsu and ImageWare have closed a three-year agreement with a major international retailer who will use the IWS CloudID® products running in the Fujitsu cloud for face, finger, iris, and voice enrollment and matching.  Additionally, Fujitsu has set up proof of concept pilots with several of their major customers, with more expected in the near future, and has kicked off sales and marketing of the partnership products in Japan and China. Our partnership with T-Systems has led to a project with Deutsche Bahn, the German national railroad, who is slated to become the first customer receiving our joint product offering. We expect more to follow and anticipate this agreement will begin producing revenues in the fourth quarter. More

A challenge I’ve seen with many public safety organizations is the inability to see the holistic picture when it comes to managing data. Addressing the topic of body-worndevices cannot be done independently of other data sources. In November, I participated on a Secured Cities panel with Rodney Monroe, the recently retired Chief of Police for Charlotte, NC. Chief Monroe highlighted three key things that police departments must to do before deploying body-worn cameras. More

The idea behind IDHaystack™ is to make identification and verification services more accessible and evergreen within a secure Government community cloud construct. We were thinking, “Wouldn’t it be wonderful to be able to offer an advanced multi-modal biometric system in a way accessible to many different Government customers without their having to expend significant capital to get it?” We wanted to create an evergreen biometrics engine that could support an open framework in which customers’ existing unique workflows, rules, interfaces and user requirements could be accommodated as they exist or built separately to suit them. We tested these tenets with customers around the world and got positive affirmation that this is what they wanted going forward. Let me elaborate on why this idea is revolutionary. More


security stock solutionsMr. George Romas
Technical Director
HP Enterprise Services, U.S. Public Sector

The current atmosphere of porous government networks and unprotected information is demanding attention from government leaders and CIOs. The idea of a cybersecurity sprint seems to have been a decent approach to jumpstarting efforts to improve security. However, this top-down approach does not adequately address the variety of issues that lead to compromise of government networks, including cyber terrorism, cybercrime, and hacktivism. The Cyber Sprint had four specific goals: for DHS to share priority threat-actor Techniques, Tactics and Procedures (TTPs); immediately patch critical vulnerabilities on a weekly basis; improve controls and governing policies on privileged users; accelerate implementation of multi-factor authentication. While these short-term measures are adequate for improved security, they are not nearly sufficient because software does not exist in a vacuum; you must also consider vulnerabilities of the overall design of the architecture and platform..

Aware, Inc.

Certisign is the largest certificate authority in Latin America, and is now introducing biometrics-as-services in Brazil through its new subsidiary, Certibio. Identity fraud prevention services are in high demand in Brazil and very synergistic with Certisign’s current business. The new services aim to help Certibio customers reduce identity fraud by enabling them to use biometrics to thoroughly verify an applicant’s identity information and ensure the integrity of their identity data. Biometrics collected in this process can then be used in the future to quickly verify the identities of individuals enrolled in the system. A wide variety of services and privileges can be better protected, including digital certificate issuance, healthcare, driver’s licenses, telecom services, bank accounts, government services, and even registration of new companies. Aware has provided Certisign with the identity platform and much of the biometrics software used to build the sizable infrastructure needed to support thousands of endpoints, millions of users, and many millions of daily transactions..

Finjan Holdings, Inc.
NASDAQ: FNJN

As we look ahead to the emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT), experts estimate that there will be 20-50 billion devices connected to the internet. All of these IoT devices are nothing more that miniature computers with internet access.  More devices connected to the internet could lead to more ways for an intelligent hacker to gather data and personal information or even as a gateway to larger hacking prizes. Protecting the networks and devices that use these services and carry data will become increasingly vital since decision making in the evolving IoT world is often done without human intervention.

If I utter the words cyber, what is the term that springs to mind?  In most cases they will be negative, such as crime, espionage, war, etc. However the reality is that this is only one side of the coin, and one term that is often forgotten is opportunity.  Technology has transformed every industry, every person, every section of society.  We have to recognize this and maximize the opportunities for the benefit of each of us, but do so in a way that reduces the risk to a level we are all comfortable with..

Identiv
www.Identiv.com

Identiv’s uTrust products enable business executives and security leaders to make the paradigm shift from patchworked identity systems to a unified, simple, efficient identity solution that delivers higher security and resistance to obsolescence, for both premises and information access. Our uTrust products are unique in the marketplace as they are designed, tested, and supported to work together. No matter where a customer starts, Identiv provides the confidence that they can build a complete system in which everything works together.  Identiv’s idOnDemand service is a turn-key cloud-based platform that makes establishing a trusted ecosystem across all lines of business, geographic locations, devices, and people simple and convenient. Central to the idOnDemand service is the certification authority that issues PKI certificates — the standard for secure communications through the internet, banks, and high-security cryptographic applications within and outside the U.S. government for the last 20 years. By combining PKI with purpose-built secure hardware such as a smart card, USB token, or other devices, like mobile, the certificate’s private key is not only protected in a high state of security, but is also portable across devices and services, enabling pervasive use of strong identity whenever (and wherever) required.

Information Assurance & IT Security
Consulting & Intelligence Strategy
HP Enterprise Services, U.S. Public Sector

There are three key challenges our clients face today. First, cyber threats are ever-changing and becoming more sophisticated by the day. Cyber terrorism and targeted cybercriminal activities are directly impacting both the public and private sectors. They are persistent and yet, based on our research into exploit trends in 2014, attackers continue to leverage well known techniques to compromise systems and networks. Many vulnerabilities exploited in 2014 took advantage of code written many years ago and adversaries continue to leverage classic avenues for attack against client-side and server-side applications. Anti-virus signatures only catch approximately 45 percent of cyber attacks—a truly abysmal rate. In our review of the 2014 threat landscape, we find that enterprises most successful in securing their environment employ complementary protection technologies. These technologies work best when paired with a mindset that assumes a breach will occur instead of only working to prevent intrusions and compromise from the perimeter. So our clients’ security posture must be agile and responsive to better defend against threats —internal and external—in addition to vulnerabilities, in order to mitigate their risk...More

MOBOTOUR  

Allied Barton is an amazing company and we are honored to serve them. They saw the benefits of Mobotour day one as an early adopter. Often, Allied has clients that don’t have large budgets, therefore other systems on the market can’t be leveraged. We play very well here. Per ASIS Security magazine, we helped solve their Bank of America issues quickly. This was our first opportunity with them. From there we continued to deliver on our promises and show how reliable the product is and have continued to expand. We help them in hospitals, universities, high end office spaces, condos and other areas.  All of this is achieved because of our hyper-efficient operation with very low overhead. More

Identiv
NASDAQ: INVE   

The weak link is the fact that, in most cases, these breaches happened because the accounts (Target, Home Depot, and JPMorgan) were using password-based authentication. That is the weak link. Had the exploited accounts required the use of Identiv’s uTrust Credential to securely login without a password, these attacks could have been mitigated. Identiv’s uTrust Credentials are incredibly easy to use because they are a form of authentication we are all used to — the idea of a card plus PIN is something users accept, we are all accustomed to using a card plus PIN to authenticate an ATM, a gas pump, etc. Identiv has recently helped a large network hardware provider secure its administrator accounts and remote access security. The company uses Identiv’s uTrust Credentials and built-in group policy to enforce smart-card-only login to Windows, Linux, and other servers. Identiv is also currently working with major energy companies to help them become NERC-compliant while securing both physical and logical access; we are working with one of the largest credit reporting agencies to secure remote access to its networks as well as physical access to its facilities; and we have helped one of the largest insurance companies in the world move away from insecure proximity technology to secure contactless physical access.   More

Discover Financial Services
www.Discover.com

Information security risks for financial institutions have increased and are continuing to increase. Factors include the proliferation of new technologies, the use of the internet and telecommunications technologies to conduct financial transactions, and the increased sophistication and activities of activists, hackers and organized criminals. Security is a top priority for Discover and the FIDO Alliance. Both are working to make online interactions easier and more secure. At Discover, we monitor our customers’ accounts to prevent, detect, investigate and resolve fraud.  We also look to our work with the FIDO Alliance to help inform our authentication techniques and strategies. Our fraud prevention systems handle the authorization of Discover’s application information, verification of our customers’ identities, sales, processing of convenience and balance transfer checks and electronic transactions. Each and every card transaction is subject to screening, authorization and approval through a proprietary POS decision system. Discover uses a variety of techniques that help identify and halt fraudulent transactions, including adaptive models, rules-based decision-making logic, report analysis, data integrity checks and manual account reviews.  We manage accounts identified by the fraud detection system through technology that integrates fraud prevention and customer service. These strategies are subject to regular reviews and enhancements to enable us to respond quickly to changing conditions, as well as to protect our customers and our business from emerging fraud activity. More

StrikeForce Technologies, Inc.
www.strikeforcetech.com

Cyber Theft and data breaches are increasing at a faster pace and in the news almost every day with reports on Data Breaches (e.g. Target, Living Social, Federal Reserve, State of Maryland), Viruses stealing keystrokes (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, Gmail) and phishing attacks (fake websites - IRS, banks). Financial institutions are being sued and losing, and cybercrime statistics in our opinion, are projected to be into the trillions of dollars globally. In conjunction with this news, regulations focusing on protecting information are gathering strength with emphasis in the financial (FFIEC), healthcare (HIPPA), consumer (PCI) and now legal markets. If you then include various articles that state "...it is only a matter of time before your mobile device is hacked, if it isn't already," StrikeForce management contends that demand is increasing specifically for the types of features and capabilities that StrikeForce Technologies' patented and patent pending products deliver. All of this translates, in our estimation, into the potential for substantial sales and revenue growth in 2014 as the Company begins to exploit the mobile market and reaches its Vision of "Making the World a Safer Place."
