MILAN, Dec. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- VASCO Data Security International, Inc. (Nasdaq: VDSI) (www.vasco.com), Intel Corporation Italy and InfoCert S.p.A. sign a Memorandum of Understanding for a future collaboration that aims at enhancing users' authentication forms in Italy. More specifically, they join their forces and put together their expertise to better protect the access to InfoCert's registered e-mail service Legalmail with MYDIGIPASS.COM.
MYDIGIPASS.COM is VASCO's hosted consumer authentication tool that provides users with convenient and secure access to their favorite applications through a single and secure platform. Access to Legalmail - the InfoCert cloud service of registered e-mails attested with date, time and the assurance that the e-mail is received by the recipient - will be extended to support MYDIGIPASS.COM, thus offering end users a different choice for authentication modes to log on.
MYDIGIPASS.COM natively supports Intel® Identity Protection Technology (Intel® IPT), embedded in all second and third generation Intel® Core™ processor based Ultrabooks™. Intel® IPT offers a simple, tamper resistant solution for protecting data from fraud or threats and can, indeed, be a key component in two factor authentication solutions such as Legalmail.
Integrating MYDIGIPASS.COM yields several benefits for InfoCert, whose customers principally consist of companies, enterprises, associations, government and professionals, representing altogether around 900,000 e-mail boxes. End users will not need any more assistance related to the requirements of new user credential or password changes. Furthermore, user convenience increases as users can choose between different manners of authentication. In closing, an extra layer of security is added as MYDIGIPASS.COM generates ever-changing one-time passwords that cannot be intercepted and stored for later use.
"VASCO, Intel and InfoCert join forces to secure the Italian Internet with MYDIGIPASS.COM. By implementing MYDIGIPASS.COM, InfoCert proves to be a global trendsetter that is constantly looking for improvement and increased security," says Jan Valcke, President and COO at VASCO Data Security. "InfoCert plans to add at least 100,000 activated users - more than 10% of their current customer base - to the MYDIGIPASS.COM community in 2013."
"The testing phase of VASCO's MYDIGIPASS.COM ran on several Intel based Ultrabooks™," comments Alberto Fabiani, Software & Corporate Resellers Regional Business Manager, Intel Italy & Switzerland, "showed different improvements, both in terms of security levels and simpler user experience. These results acquire a greater importance if we consider that last year nearly one in four (22%)* companies suffered a security breach and 21% faced problems with regards to security of mobile devices. Moreover, another aspect not to be underestimated, we should remember how online customers tend to 'recycle' passwords, even when transferring sensitive data."
"This agreement shows the InfoCert aim to keep enhancing and developing the security components and underlines the attention to customer experience that distinguishes Legalmail family products," says Danilo Cattaneo, CEO of InfoCert. "It is an attitude that has always marked us, and that the market has rewarded, as shown by the amplitude and the steady growth of our customer base. Cooperating with prestigious partners such as VASCO and Intel is a guarantee of success and the best way to achieve our goals."

Hardware will never be more valuable than on the day it hits your loading dock. Each day new servers are not deployed to production the business is losing money. While Moore’s Law is typically cited to explain the exponential density growth of chips, a critical consequence of this is rapid depreciation of servers. The hardware for clustered systems (e.g., Hadoop, OpenStack) tends to be significant capital expenses. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Mason Katz, CTO and co-founder of StackIQ, to discuss how infrastructure teams should be aware of the capitalization and depreciation model of these expenses to fully understand when and where automation is critical.

Over the last few years the healthcare ecosystem has revolved around innovations in Electronic Health Record (HER) based systems. This evolution has helped us achieve much desired interoperability. Now the focus is shifting to other equally important aspects – scalability and performance. While applying cloud computing environments to the EHR systems, a special consideration needs to be given to the cloud enablement of Veterans Health Information Systems and Technology Architecture (VistA), i.e., the largest single medical system in the United States.

Most of today’s hardware manufacturers are building servers with at least one SATA Port, but not every systems engineer utilizes them. This is considered a loss in the game of maximizing potential storage space in a fixed unit. The SATADOM Series was created by Innodisk as a high-performance, small form factor boot drive with low power consumption to be plugged into the unused SATA port on your server board as an alternative to hard drive or USB boot-up. Built for 1U systems, this powerful device is smaller than a one dollar coin, and frees up otherwise dead space on your motherboard. To meet the requirements of tomorrow’s cloud hardware, Innodisk invested internal R&D resources to develop our SATA III series of products. The SATA III SATADOM boasts 500/180MBs R/W Speeds respectively, or double R/W Speed of SATA II products.

As more applications and services move "to the cloud" (public or on-premise) cloud environments are increasingly adopting and building out traditional enterprise features. This in turn is enabling and encouraging cloud adoption from enterprise users. In many ways the definition is blurring as features like continuous operation, geo-distribution or on-demand capacity become the norm. NuoDB is involved in both building enterprise software and using enterprise cloud capabilities. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Seth Proctor, CTO at NuoDB, Inc., will discuss the experiences from building, deploying and using enterprise services and suggest some ways to approach moving enterprise applications into a cloud model.

Cloud and Big Data present unique dilemmas: embracing the benefits of these new technologies while maintaining the security of your organization’s assets. When an outside party owns, controls and manages your infrastructure and computational resources, how can you be assured that sensitive data remains private and secure? How do you best protect data in mixed use cloud and big data infrastructure sets? Can you still satisfy the full range of reporting, compliance and regulatory requirements? In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Derek Tumulak, Vice President of Product Management at Vormetric, will discuss how to address data security in cloud and Big Data environments so that your organization isn’t next week’s data breach headline.

Enterprises require the performance, agility and on-demand access of the public cloud, and the management, security and compatibility of the private cloud. The solution? In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Simone Brunozzi, VP and Chief Technologist(global role) for VMware, will explore how to unlock the power of the hybrid cloud and the steps to get there. He'll discuss the challenges that conventional approaches to both public and private cloud computing, and outline the tough decisions that must be made to accelerate the journey to the hybrid cloud. As part of the transition, an Infrastructure-as-a-Service model will enable enterprise IT to build services beyond their data center while owning what gets moved, when to move it, and for how long. IT can then move forward on what matters most to the organization that it supports – availability, agility and efficiency.

Every healthy ecosystem is diverse. This is especially true in cloud ecosystems, where portability and interoperability are more important than old enterprise models of proprietary ownership. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Mark Baker, Server Product Manager at Canonical/Ubuntu, will discuss how single vendors used to take the lead in creating and delivering technology, but in a cloud economy, where users want tools of their preference, when and where they need them, it makes no sense.
