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

RYE BROOK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 01/16/14 -- ImageWare Systems, Inc. (OTCQB: IWSY) and StrikeForce Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: SFOR)

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
www.strikeforcetech.com

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.

DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.
One of the hottest areas in cloud right now is DRaaS and related offerings. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Dale Levesque, Disaster Recovery Product Manager with Windstream's Cloud and Data Center Marketing team, will discuss the benefits of the cloud model, which far outweigh the traditional approach, and how enterprises need to ensure that their needs are properly being met.

Even as cloud and managed services grow increasingly central to business strategy and performance, challenges remain. The biggest sticking point for companies seeking to capitalize on the cloud is data security.

Understandably so: a lot can go wrong when you allow valuable information to live outside the firewall. Recent revelations about government snooping, along...
Internet of Things is moving from being a hype to a reality. Experts estimate that internet connected cars will grow to 152 million, while over 100 million internet connected wireless light bulbs and lamps will be operational by 2020.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jason Mondanaro, Director, Product Management at Metanga, discussed how you can plan to cooperate, partner, and form lasting all-star teams to change the world...
Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines. DevOps and Containers together help companies to achieve their business goals faster and more effectively. In his session at DevOps Summit, Ruslan Synytsky, CEO and Co-founder of Jelastic, reviewed the current landscape of...
Malicious agents are moving faster than the speed of business. Even more worrisome, most companies are relying on legacy approaches to security that are no longer capable of meeting current threats. In the modern cloud, threat diversity is rapidly expanding, necessitating more sophisticated security protocols than those used in the past or in desktop environments. Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.

In the midst of the widespread popularity and adoption of cloud computing, it seems like everything is being offered “as a Service” these days: Infrastructure? Check. Platform? You bet. Software? Absolutely. Toaster? It’s only a matter of time.
