HP Enterprise Services

Mr. George Romas, Technical Director, Cybersecurity Solutions Group, HP Enterprise Services, U.S. Public Sector, told us, "IoT will create completely new industries that form around smart devices. We already see the beginnings of that today, where smoke detectors, thermostats, audio/video equipment, watches, smart phones, vehicles and more are becoming sensor-rich and network-enabled. Everyday devices in your home or office will collaborate to form new capabilities. An example of this scenario can be demonstrated through home security. Using IoT, your home would know that your house is vacant by polling the motion detectors embedded in its Nest Protect smoke detectors and thermostat, and correlating that information with the family schedule (work and school). When the back door opens without the proper key code or ping from an authenticated smart phone and motion is detected, your home sounds a piercing alarm over the whole-house audio speaker system. In turn, it also sends an alert with streaming video to the police, sends warning texts to all family members, and disrupts other communications from within the house. "

ImageWare Systems recently announced...

ImageWare Systems, Inc. (OTCQB: IWSY), a leader in mobile and cloud-based, multi-modal biometric identity management solutions, was selected to implement a multi-modal biometric driver license system for the State of Baja California, Mexico.

The contract was awarded by the Funciones Ocupacionales Insha, S.A. de C.V., the prime contractor on the project. For ImageWare, the contract is valued at more than $1.0 million and its software will help generate more than one million licenses over the next three years. ImageWare will receive one time license fees for its software upon delivery and ongoing payments for its professional services and maintenance as delivered.

ImageWare will help to deploy the system at governmental offices in the largest cities in the state, including Tijuana, Mexicali, Tecate and Rosarito, as well as implement mobile stations through the state. The project will begin in the third quarter of 2014.

"As security needs become more complex and demanding, our customers increasingly appreciate the unique power and flexibility of our patented cloud-based, multi-modal biometric solutions," said Jim Miller, ImageWare's chairman and CEO. "Our proven track record of providing state-of-the-art biometric solutions for government agencies was a key factor in winning this award."

The multi-modal biometric driver license system will be based on ImageWare's CloudID™ modular software platform that supports the rapid development and deployment of highly secure, yet flexible identity management solutions for the creation of credentials, including IDs, passports, driver's licenses, smart cards and access control credentials. IWS CloudID is designed to deliver a "future proof" identity management solution, allowing unlimited population sizes and stations, as well as adding additional biometric modalities and incorporating new biometric devices.

The company's IWS QuickApps™ will provide the user interfaces to register applicants, validate identities and print and encode cards. Both IWS CloudID and IWS QuickApps are driven by ImageWare's patented, multi-modal Biometric Engine® 2.0, and the system can be integrated with the government's existing biometric identification and verifications processes. Security for the system will be managed by ImageWare's Desktop Security System, with the use of multifactor authentication, data encryption and a secured log of all actions by the user.

March Networks recently announced...

March Networks®, a global provider of intelligent IP video solutions, is pleased to introduce its new 6700 Series Hybrid Network Video Recorders (NVRs) and the Edge 4e Encoder. The high-performance products support a cost-effective transition to high-definition (HD) IP video and advanced business intelligence applications, while providing unparalleled reliability and browser-based video management. In addition, the 6700 Series recording platform incorporates privacy masking and other privacy protection features to meet varying video surveillance guidelines across Europe.

"These latest additions to our portfolio make it easier for customers to deploy advanced IP video solutions sooner and more affordably," said Net Payne, Chief Marketing Officer, March Networks. "They support capabilities that deliver practical business benefits to an organization, and incorporate industry-first features that save customers and channel partners service costs in the field."

6700 Series Hybrid NVR
Initially available in 16 and 8-channel models, the 6700 Series recording platform provides exceptional hybrid flexibility, supporting any combination of analog and IP cameras up to a maximum of 16 IP cameras. Its optimized H.264 video compression ensures detailed, HD video and sharp analog image capture without increasing storage requirements.

Designed with channel partners in mind, each 6700 Series Hybrid NVR comes with a unique QR code on the front panel. Technicians working at a customer site can scan the code using March Networks' free GURU smartphone application to access a wide range of product information and utilities, such as on-the-spot troubleshooting, warranty status and express return material authorizations. The industry-first application is compatible with iOS and Android devices and can significantly reduce the time and effort required to service systems in the field. In addition, the rack-mounted 6716 R Hybrid NVR includes March Networks' innovative docking-station design, which further streamlines maintenance by allowing camera cables to remain in place when servicing is needed.

The 6700 Series recorders are fully managed with the March Networks Command® video management system (VMS) and its powerful, browser-based client -- one of the only thin software clients able to support complete system configuration and administration in addition to live and archived video access. Other system features available with the 6700 solution include interactive mapping, smart card and USB token authentication, and the ability to set user permissions down to the camera level and hourly timeframe.

Edge 4e Encoder
Also new to the March Networks portfolio is the new Edge 4e Encoder. The four-channel encoder enables organizations to seamlessly convert video from existing analog cameras into digital video running on an IP video network. The high-performance device works in concert with Command VMS installed on March Networks hybrid NVRs or industry-standard servers. It offers full frame rate resolution (25 fps PAL / 30 fps NTSC), H.264 and M-JPEG compression streams for bandwidth efficiency, and can stream all four channels in parallel to an optional internal SDHC card for enhanced redundancy.

As an added cost-efficiency, the Edge 4e Encoder requires just one license for all four video channels -- making it a compelling and affordable option for IP video migration in many enterprise environments.

StrikeForce Technologies

(OTCQB: SFOR)

StrikeForce Technologies announced this week....

StrikeForce Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB: SFOR), a company that specializes in cyber-security solutions for the prevention of identity theft and data breaches, announced today that Logical Source, Inc. has signed on to distribute its products.

"We are very pleased that Logical Source has signed on to distribute our products," says Mark L. Kay, CEO of StrikeForce. "Logical Source is a leading provider of health information services to small to mid-size businesses, public and private institutions, and Fortune 500 corporations for over 20 years. Logical Source also benefits from its partnerships with leading professional associations that set the standards for the industry, such as the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA), the American Records Management Association (ARMA), and the Association for Information and Image Management (AIIM)."

"Health care organizations are besieged by cyber-attacks," says Jon Demarest, CEO of Logical Source. "In light of all the new HIPAA regulations, I believe that our healthcare clients will want to protect patient information by deploying StrikeForce's GuardedID® and MobileTrust® keystroke encryption applications."

"It's apparent that these data breaches are occurring because of the over-reliance on anti-virus programs, which no longer protect anyone," says Demarest. "Already, a few of our hospital clients are looking to deploy GuardedID for critically-needed security to help prevent data breaches. Some of our clients in other markets are also interested in StrikeForce's ProtectID® Out-of-Band Authentication to prevent hacking, and MobileTrust and GuardedID Mobile SDK products to prevent data leakage."

Logical Source will offer StrikeForce products and services to their healthcare clients in order to help prevent medical identity and records fraud. For example, "A typical medical record will sell for about $50 per record. Compare that to a Social Security number, which sells for about $25....one third of medical identity fraud victims had to pay for a procedure they never had. The average cost for this group of people was $18,000." ("Hackers Are Profiting from Your Medical Records," www.nbcconnecticut.com, May 6, 2014).

The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did. WebRTC enabled this contact center provider to eliminate antiquated telephony and desktop phone infrastructure with a pure web-based solution, allowing them to expand beyond brick-and-mortar confines to a home-based agent model. It also ensured scalability and better service for customers, including MUY! Companies, one of the country's largest franchise restaurant companies with 232 Pizza Hut locations. This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT.
One of the biggest challenges when developing connected devices is identifying user value and delivering it through successful user experiences. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Mike Kuniavsky, Principal Scientist, Innovation Services at PARC, described an IoT-specific approach to user experience design that combines approaches from interaction design, industrial design and service design to create experiences that go beyond simple connected gadgets to create lasting, multi-device experiences grounded in people's real needs and desires.
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!
The Internet of Things is not only adding billions of sensors and billions of terabytes to the Internet. It is also forcing a fundamental change in the way we envision Information Technology. For the first time, more data is being created by devices at the edge of the Internet rather than from centralized systems. What does this mean for today's IT professional? In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists will addresses this very serious issue of profound change in the industry.
