Security Solutions Discussed by Industry Leaders in SecuritySolutionsWatch.com Interviews With HP, ImageWare Systems, March Networks, StrikeForce

HP Enterprise Services

Mr. Bryan Coapstick, Director, Mobile Innovations, HP Enterprise Services, U.S. Public Sector, told us, "A successful mobile strategy means connecting people to each other or to the applications and information they need. You begin by focusing on getting a better, more intimate understanding of your customers. I define customers very broadly, as too often people get hung up on B2C, B2B, and B2E. Regardless if they are my employer or my customer, my audience members drive and determine what they think is useful, valuable, and desirable--and that is the cornerstone of any successful mobility strategy. If we focus on the cornerstones of the user experience, there is no limit to the positive impact that can be delivered to society as a whole, whether it is transforming a patient's experience, or helping a mother order dinner on her way home from work."

"Fujitsu and ImageWare Continue to Deliver Market Leading Cloud-Based Biometric Identity Management Solutions and Services

As the biometric market landscape evolves, Fujitsu and ImageWare Systems (IWSY) continue to deliver leading cloud-based biometric identity management solutions and services that address the needs of companies in the financial services, retail, healthcare and manufacturing sectors. This cloud based biometric platform is designed to provide these industries with an agnostic approach relative to various modalities such as voice, facial, iris, and fingerprinting applications.

In the past, biometric-enabled solutions entailed complex development processes, where projects typically took one year or longer to implement, and companies were required to make major upfront investments in hardware and software. Today, Fujitsu is collaborating with ImageWare Systems, a developer of identity-based, credential management solutions driven by biometric technology, to enable support for more than 50 biometric devices while instantaneously responding to different types of modalities.

Along with ImageWare, Fujitsu is transforming the market with its cloud-based identity platform, or "biometrics as a service," through quick deployment that lowers costs and permits customers to choose and blend modalities to develop the best use case for their particular organization and requirements, permitting rapid integration with existing business intelligence and systems.

"We continue to collaborate with ImageWare because we see a growing need among our customers to securely identify and authenticate data that is important for enterprise businesses, while also addressing IT demands leveraging easily-deployed, scalable, cloud-based solutions," said David Berry, executive vice president, Infrastructure Services at Fujitsu. "We are in a unique position to work with established and emerging markets to define and diversify how biometric solutions and services are utilized -- whether it's preventing fraud at financial institutions or using voice recognition via mobile devices to investigate criminal activity."

ImageWare Systems supports a dozen different biometric models via its patented biometric engine. The company delivers its biometric technology through the Fujitsu interactive cloud-based service and provides authentication using the latest range of smart mobile devices, a key area of growth for the technology market.

"ImageWare Systems was founded more than a decade ago focusing on developing innovative, patented-protected technology to allow private and public organizations to deploy configurable and modular multi-modal biometric based identity and authentication management solutions," said Jim Miller, chairman and CEO of ImageWare Systems. "By partnering with Fujitsu, we are focused on helping global enterprises and service providers succeed in providing value to their business and customers with the next generation of cloud-based Identification management, poised to save businesses multi billions of dollars on a yearly basis, especially as we see transactions shift to mobile devices which are expected to exceed the world population in 2014."

StrikeForce Technologies

Recently announced that...

"We believe opportunities for StrikeForce Technologies, Inc. ("Company") are progressively promising, as we see that demand and sales of our products are growing, even though not as fast as we projected in 2013. 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." A detailed 2013 Year in Review and A Look Forward into 2014 is available on the StrikeForce website by clicking HERE.

The past few years have brought a sea change in the way applications are architected, developed, and consumed—increasing both the complexity of testing and the business impact of software failures. How can software testing professionals keep pace with modern application delivery, given the trends that impact both architectures (cloud, microservices, and APIs) and processes (DevOps, agile, and continuous delivery)? This is where continuous testing comes in. D

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
