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

Simply monitoring high-value assets provides a general example. Video surveillance combined with other sensor output such as audio, motion, or building contacts is used to increase protection and monitor assets without constant human supervision. Threats of incidents are detected and the risks mitigated by alerting personnel or automatically initiating preventative actions. When combined with advance video analytics, benefits continue to grow. At the University of San Francisco (USF), IP cameras and the Cisco Video Surveillance Manager deliver facial recognition to detect when unauthorized individuals enter an area and then notify appropriate staff.  Dallas Area Rapid Transit(DART) use Cisco’s IoT Physical Security solutions to increase effectiveness of the transit police. With better intelligence, first responders and their associated operations teams have increased productivity substantially. They have done this at scale with a centralized command center managing more than 1700 remotely deployed IP cameras. Recently the system has been extended across busses and emergency response vehicles..More

AMAG Technology

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

SRC, Inc.

SRC, the parent company of FourV, is a not-for-profit company that has provided research and development services to U.S. government customers for more than 55 years. Over the last several years, in response to customer challenges and market needs, SRC has been developing analytic platforms for what is known today as “big data.” Due to some recent, high profile data breaches (that you can read about in the news), SRC saw an opportunity to focus on the commercial application of its research and development, and began to focus on products and services in the big data analytics market. SRC formed FourV to offer its analytic platform, known as the GreySpark™ Reasoning Engine, into the commercial marketspace. We’re committed to making the GreySpark Reasoning Engine the industry leader in combining historical big data analytics and real-time, fast data analytics and processing. The core of GreySpark is incredibly flexible and can be applied across a number of use cases within the enterprise. We are developing flexible yet powerful modules to be deployed with the core engine to address enterprise needs in fraud detection, financial market analysis and have additional capabilities in the roadmap for other use cases as well.

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

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.

In the last six months, we’ve seen security technology changing the way businesses operate across multiple industries. For example, expanded use of RFID-enabled technologies is helping retailers identify and combat operational loss, deepen the customer experience and improve omni-channel operations. Additionally, in heavily regulated industries like food manufacturing and pharmaceuticals, we’ve seen physical security play a bigger role in ensuring standard compliance. On another level, since entering the small business market last fall, we’ve seen firsthand how affordable commercial-grade security solutions can make a difference for small business owners’ bottom line.More

Many of our clients know that HP has a strong legacy of IT infrastructure support; we have more than 80 data centers worldwide supporting more than 1,300 customers. But here’s what makes the Mid-Atlantic Data Center (MDC) different—we have enhanced our security and compliance posture to accommodate and support the critical needs of the U.S. Federal Government, as well as commercial companies requiring stronger measures.  The HP Mid-Atlantic Data Center has been designed to provide customers with high levels of security, reliability, compliance and cost effectiveness. In fact, the U.S. government has designated this facility as being a part of our nation’s critical infrastructure, guaranteeing priority restoral of services in the event of a natural or manmade disaster. 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

SRC, Inc.

UAS, also commonly referred to as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), remotely piloted aircraft (RPA) and drones, offer many advantages. There are commercial applications like precision agriculture, film production, package deliveries, etc. And there are military applications like intelligence gathering, surveillance, reconnaissance and high-risk operations that no longer require putting a human pilot in harm’s way. These applications are recognized globally, which has led to the proliferation of UAS worldwide. With such a large population of these aircraft, there is a pressing need to safely integrate these systems into the airspace and to defend against them when they are used for hostile purposes. More

Discover Financial Services

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

Director, USPS Application Services Practice
HP Enterprise Services, U.S. Public Sector

Applications modernization has become imperative as the maintenance of “mature” applications has increased—consuming a disproportionate share of resources. HP aligns critical applications and infrastructure with your overall modernization program. We can help you address risk, optimize benefits and prioritize the business needs of your applications. There are some very significant benefits that we can get through modernization. We’ve seen between 25 and 45 percent savings in a reduction in operations cost, development cost and overall portfolio size. The approach HP uses has been successfully executed with hundreds of modernization projects - leveraging the Advise, Transform and Manage approach, which is backed up with a strong methodology, tools and the experience to execute and de-risk the approach. What’s critical in this process is to start with a complete assessment. It’s mandatory that you get the plan right and you know what your portfolio, know what your application environment is so you can execute successfully. We’ve seen clients fail by ineffectively planning this assessment phase. If you do nothing, your costs are going to continue to rise; executing a transformation plan is critical. More

StrikeForce Technologies, Inc.

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."
