Cisco, CyberLock, Dove Net, ImageWare, and Wave Systems Discuss Security Solutions

New ISC East Dates Due to Hurricane Sandy, PSA Security Network Interview With President/CEO Bill Bozeman

RYE BROOK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 11/15/12 -- ImageWare Systems (OTCQB: IWSY), Wave Systems (NASDAQ: WAVX)

Cisco
Mrs. Ulrica de-Fort Menares, Director of Product Management for Cisco Medianet, told us, "An intelligent network must become more application-savvy. It must have the ability to determine the importance of a session based on its business value, and treat the session accordingly, end to end. One of the key medianet characteristics is its ability to become media-aware. Imagine this: The network can discover the type of endpoint and automatically configure the switch port for that type of device. This ability to plug and play any endpoint in the network is an example of tight integration between an intelligent network and an endpoint."

CyberLock

There are many creative ways clients utilize the innovative CyberLock access control system. In the following application, a leading mine operator in Africa has implemented the CyberLock system to manage access to a variety of items ranging from high value tools to dangerous explosives. One of the contributing factors that made the client choose CyberLock is its ability to remotely manage access, without the need for power or wiring. On a daily basis the physical layout of the mine is constantly evolving as efforts to uncover the desired resources are implemented. This ever-changing topography and underground environment made a traditional, wired access control solution impossible. CyberLock, on the other hand, was able to seamlessly replace all of the mechanical locks throughout the mine.

The mining supervisory staff has been allocated CyberKeys with associated schedules and permissions dictated by their role in the organization. Web Authorizer Communicators were chosen because they require entry of a PIN code before the key can be reauthorized, which further increased security. In addition, since the Authorizer Hub saves permissions and audit trail information locally, operations can continue even during the fairly common occurrence of a network outage. Through the Dual Key Custody feature built into the CyberLock system, the mine can ensure that the on-site explosives can only be accessed under dual supervision. This feature forces both a supervisory and a transport team lead to present an authorized key before explosives can be retrieved. This ability to provide access control in such a changing and challenging environment has made CyberLock an invaluable part of this mining operation.

ImageWare Systems

Mr. Jim Miller, chairman and CEO of ImageWare, said, "At the end of last year, we set a goal to establish a leadership position in biometric-based identity management for the cloud. The release of our BE 2.0 earlier this year, followed by the CloudID product suite, has clearly paved the way toward achieving this goal. Our proven experience in the government sector is translating perfectly into the commercial market, and we are gaining traction with customer adoption as demonstrated by our Fujitsu license agreement."

"Working with a global partner and leading IT innovator like Fujitsu and their NuVola Private Cloud allows ImageWare to quickly enter the private cloud arena," continued Miller. "The worldwide deployment of this platform represents a significant growth opportunity for ImageWare and also demonstrates our multi-biometric security expertise."

During the third quarter, the company also advanced the development of its biometric-secured mobile transaction technology, building upon the wireless push technology and related patents it acquired from VOCEL earlier in the year. Integrating wireless push technology with ImageWare's biometric solutions provides the missing security link facing a growing number of enterprises and government agencies using mobile platforms to transact business or interact with their users. The solution is applicable for healthcare, law enforcement, banking and retail, or any organization requiring highly-reliable and flexible identity verification of their mobile users. The company plans to release the first demonstration models of this mobile technology to key potential corporate users in early December.

In addition to product development, ImageWare has been preparing for a major international deployment as the exclusive provider of biometric identity management for a prime contractor installing cargo scanning security at the Republic of Ecuador's major seaports. The initial deployment is currently scheduled to begin in the early part of 2013 at the Port of Guayaquil, the country's main seaport that handles a majority of its imports and exports. ImageWare expects to receive a fee for every port worker receiving credentials, as well as an annual management and maintenance fee, based on a percentage of the initial credentialing cost per worker. Depending upon the number of enrollees, the company expects the contract value to exceed $3.0 million over its seven year term.

"The high-end biometric secure credentialing solution we are providing for Ecuador is the same technology being deployed for the Los Angeles World Airports, which we announced earlier this year," noted Miller. "In fact, we can easily replicate this platform for virtually any port system that needs transportation worker identification cards in order to comply with the SAFE Port Act. Not only are our solutions easily deployable, for ImageWare they generally represent gross margins above 70% as well as a recurring revenue stream. Our unique patented technology has the potential to provide us strong, steady revenue growth, along with excellent forward-looking visibility."

Miller added: "Historically, our revenues have been lumpy and difficult to predict as a result of our dependence upon larger government projects. Although we will continue to pursue government contracts, we believe the proactive steps we have taken to operate in the commercial and consumer markets will begin to provide us with monthly recurring revenue throughout 2013, driven primarily from our Cloud, SaaS and mobile offerings."

WAVE SYSTEMS

Wave CEO Steven Sprague recently said, "We view Windows 8, which utilizes industry standard hardware to deliver a range of convenient and secure new features, as a validation of the benefits of Trusted Computing and Wave's solutions. Wave is uniquely positioned to support Windows 8 deployments via server-based or cloud management solutions, as well as to deliver a range of Windows 8 capabilities to enterprise customers running Windows 7 and earlier versions. Though Trusted Computing is based on industry-standard hardware used to protect your identity, the powerful user benefits are ease of use, ease of connection, and ease of access to the critical data that you need to do your job; it just works. Further, by building these capabilities on top of Trusted Computing hardware now being deployed across PCs, tablets and mobile devices via Windows 8, governments, enterprises, and even individuals, are able to benefit and manage all of their devices using one solution.

"As the mobile security space continues to expand -- especially with the rising use of consumer smartphones in the enterprise, in mobile commerce and for sensitive applications -- Wave has taken a leadership role in promoting the adoption of hardware-based industry standards for greater security. Last quarter, Wave announced its inclusion in the influential ARM TrustZone Ready Program, whose partners have pledged to help chipset vendors design and integrate Trusted Computing hardware features in the chipsets they are building today.

"We are making great progress with scrambls to address security issues posed by the rising use of Cloud storage services in the enterprise as well as the evolution of social media into a tool increasingly used by businesses for the dissemination of critical information. We see strong interest within the corporate environment for solutions that enable the safe sharing of files and communications over the Internet and social media."

@ThingsExpo Stories
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
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 put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jeff Kaplan, Managing Director of THINKstrategies, will examine why IT must finally fulfill its role in support of its SBUs or face a new round of...
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!
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robin Raymond, Chief Architect at Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services ...
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...
Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user's habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems at Red Hat, described how to revolutioniz...
Bit6 today issued a challenge to the technology community implementing Web Real Time Communication (WebRTC). To leap beyond WebRTC’s significant limitations and fully leverage its underlying value to accelerate innovation, application developers need to consider the entire communications ecosystem.
The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...
Cloud Expo 2014 TV commercials will feature @ThingsExpo, which was launched in June, 2014 at New York City's Javits Center as the largest 'Internet of Things' event in the world.

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
