Kurt Takahashi, President of AMAG, said, “At first glance, access control systems may appear straightforward: built simply to lock and unlock a door. But delve deeper, and the administration of granting approval becomes extremely labor-intensive, and timely, in nature. Email traffic between security teams and site managers or business owners becomes overwhelming, as requests for approvals must be granted and access taken away manually, and precious time is wasted generating reports. While this in itself is problematic, it also leads to a rise in third-party compliance regulations. In the US, these can include everything from the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act for the healthcare sector to the North American Electric Reliability Corporation’s Critical Infrastructure Protection standards for utilities. So, how do you efficiently manage the way that physical identities are requesting approval, and ensure that it is carried out correctly?”

Marc Blackmer, Product Marketing Manager, Industry Solutions, Security Business Group, Cisco, shared with us, “We at Cisco are fully committed to the IoT, and we believe the IoT must be secured for its promise to be realized. Securing the IoT is easier said than done, though. The first complication is that most IoT devices can’t protect themselves. To be fair, there are a number of reasons why they can’t, but from a cybersecurity perspective, those reasons don’t matter. A vulnerability is a vulnerability is a vulnerability. And these vulnerabilities create ample opportunities for an attacker to exploit those devices and gain access to your network.“ For our complete interview with Marc Blackmer please click here or here:
Samir Shah, CEO, Cyberinc, said, “Browsers are our window to the World Wide Web, as we access various types of browsers on a variety of smart devices, umpteen times a day. The ubiquitous web browser – the strategically important application on corporate desktops, ironically, is also the only application on the desktop that regularly downloads and executes code from both trusted and untrusted networks. To borrow an analogy from airport security, the browser, by default, does not ‘scan’ or ‘frisk’ the code that enters and executes on the endpoint. As a result, browsers which keep the business connected to the global economy, have also become the preferred channel for cybercriminals to snake their way into our devices & systems.
Cyber hackers are exploiting the inherent vulnerabilities associated with browser code and plug-ins to launch devious cyber attacks, impacting business continuity and revenues, along with eroding consumer trust and loyalty. Multiple vulnerabilities detected across popular browsers such as Google Chrome, Thunderbird, SeaMonkey and Mozilla Firefox by cyber sleuths in India, all highlight security issues within the browser. A recent advisory issued by the Computer Emergency Response Team of India (CERT-IN) has listed key browser vulnerabilities: of how browsers could be exploited by a remote attacker to bypass certain security restrictions, disclose potentially sensitive information, gain escalated privileges, execute arbitrary code and cause denial of service condition on the affected system.”

“The Munich Airport system is a paradigm among airport security systems. It was designed around a single centralized and virtual data archiving system, accessible to anyone with permission anywhere on the airport network, and uses behavioral analytics to trigger alarm, camera management (zoom into the picture, follow a suspect, increase image resolution etc.) thereby reducing the number and scope of ‘People-Watching-Cameras’ and providing a massive saving for the airport operators. The system installed was placed by a Dell EMC partner in a public competitive RFP, so value as well as functional excellence was a determinant of the solution choice. We are given permission to reference this system and use it for show-&-tell visits and in our sales meetings with new and existing Customers. The airport has since expanded the system beyond the original scope and size of the original purchased hardware, emphasizing their commitment to our solution and their happiness with it.” For our complete interview with Graham Porter please click here or here:

ImageWare Systems, Inc. (ImageWare or IWS), a leader in mobile and cloud-based, multi-modal biometric identity management solutions, today announced that GoVerifyID for IBM Security Access Manager (ISAM) is now available on the IBM Security App Exchange.
GoVerifyID seamlessly integrates with IBM identity and access management technology to provide a flexible, end-to-end, multi-modal, biometric security solution for all ISAM authentication processes. ImageWare’s GoVerifyID, combined with ISAM, allows users to swipe a fingerprint, take a selfie, speak a passphrase, show their palm, or enter a PIN on their mobile devices to authenticate for any ISAM managed resource. The enterprise-ready integration package deploys automatically into existing ISAM environments and has been validated by IBM Security.
This new integration is freely available to the security community through IBM Security App Exchange, a marketplace where developers across the industry can share applications based on IBM Security technologies. As identity-related attacks persist as a leading cause of major security breaches, collaborative development amongst the security community will help organizations adapt quickly and speed innovation in the fight against cybercrime.
GoVerifyID integrates with IBM Security Access Manager, which helps companies provide secure and simplified access to web, mobile, and cloud technologies through a single integrated platform. This new integration allows ImageWare and IBM customers to replace or augment passwords with biometrics to provide an improved user experience, increased user identity trust, and greater security. By eliminating passwords or providing biometric multi-factor authentication (MFA), the risk of a data breach is reduced.
“The major data breaches in the headlines over the past few months remind us of the severe business consequences of such incidents. The ImageWare GoVerifyID product mitigates the risk of these devastating thefts that can bankrupt a company and cause untold pain for their partners and customers,” said Jim Miller, Chairman and CEO of ImageWare. “We are excited to have placed our GoVerifyID for ISAM solution on the IBM Security App Exchange to make it readily available to existing IBM customers. We look forward to helping enterprises quickly and easily deploy this integration to provide the ultimate in security and ease of use for their ISAM environments.”

Jeffrey Liu, Ph.D., CEO & President, INFILUX, told us, “The 36-month warranty is definitely over the industry standard. Most of our competitors provide 24-month warranty. We provide an extra 12-month warranty because we are confident about the reliability of our products. It also helps us to stand out in a saturated market, which offers a great deal of similar products. Being able to offer this type of guarantee helps ease the consumer’s mind, when purchasing a high-consideration product. In addition to our industry-best, 36-month warranty, our price is really competitive comparing to other similar 4mp setups in the market. Also, as mentioned, Infilux provides life-time technical support and customer service.”

Scott Suhy, Chief Executive Officer, NetWatcher, shared with us, “What should YOU have learned from some of the larger breaches of 2017 (InterContinental Hotels Group, Arby’s, Verifone, Saks Fifth Avenue, UNC Health Care, Chipotle, Brooks Brothers, DocuSign, Kmart, Blue Cross Blue Shield / Anthem, Equifax, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, Deloitte, Sonic, Whole Foods Market, Hyatt Hotels and of course Uber)?
1. It is necessary to continuously monitor your users, network activity and assets for vulnerabilities, malware and bad behavior (users using risky/vulnerable software, sending information over the internet in clear text, clicking on phishing links etc.) is absolutely necessary because firewalls and traditional anti-virus software is not enough.
2. It’s absolutely necessary to have policies (example: Logical Access Policy, Encryption Poliy etc. and procedures (Incident Response Plans, Disaster Recovery Plans etc.) in place. This is why the HIPAA Security Rule, the GLBA Safeguards Rule, PCI-DSS, NY State’s new 23 NYCRR 500, DFAR 254.204-7012 / NIST 800-171 all call out the need for both monitoring and policy/procedure.
Up to now monitoring has been way too expensive for the Small and Medium Enterprise market. Not anymore! Get https://netwatcher.com.”

Rory Olson, President & Chief Executive Officer, VOTI DETECTION™, told us, “Las Vegas was a terrible tragedy and does trigger additional discussion on security, especially for protection of people and saving lives. There is no doubt in my mind more screening in public and private physical entrances and exits will be required and mandated. Other countries, enterprises and communities outside North America are already taking the step to enhance their security. In many regions of Europe, Africa and the Middle East, hotels, public facilities such as shopping malls, museums, sports venues, concert halls, etc., have x-ray scanners deployed. Asia is following and I expect North America will not be too far behind. As more awareness is given to the role of x-ray scanners in these domains, AI and analytics will play a key role in the automation and predictive detection of threats to all.” More
