Senior Director
Identiv
NASDAQ: INVE   

The weak link is the fact that, in most cases, these breaches happened because the accounts (Target, Home Depot, and JPMorgan) were using password-based authentication. That is the weak link. Had the exploited accounts required the use of Identiv’s uTrust Credential to securely login without a password, these attacks could have been mitigated. Identiv’s uTrust Credentials are incredibly easy to use because they are a form of authentication we are all used to — the idea of a card plus PIN is something users accept, we are all accustomed to using a card plus PIN to authenticate an ATM, a gas pump, etc. Identiv has recently helped a large network hardware provider secure its administrator accounts and remote access security. The company uses Identiv’s uTrust Credentials and built-in group policy to enforce smart-card-only login to Windows, Linux, and other servers. Identiv is also currently working with major energy companies to help them become NERC-compliant while securing both physical and logical access; we are working with one of the largest credit reporting agencies to secure remote access to its networks as well as physical access to its facilities; and we have helped one of the largest insurance companies in the world move away from insecure proximity technology to secure contactless physical access.   More

Discover Financial Services
www.Discover.com

Information security risks for financial institutions have increased and are continuing to increase. Factors include the proliferation of new technologies, the use of the internet and telecommunications technologies to conduct financial transactions, and the increased sophistication and activities of activists, hackers and organized criminals. Security is a top priority for Discover and the FIDO Alliance. Both are working to make online interactions easier and more secure. At Discover, we monitor our customers’ accounts to prevent, detect, investigate and resolve fraud.  We also look to our work with the FIDO Alliance to help inform our authentication techniques and strategies. Our fraud prevention systems handle the authorization of Discover’s application information, verification of our customers’ identities, sales, processing of convenience and balance transfer checks and electronic transactions. Each and every card transaction is subject to screening, authorization and approval through a proprietary POS decision system. Discover uses a variety of techniques that help identify and halt fraudulent transactions, including adaptive models, rules-based decision-making logic, report analysis, data integrity checks and manual account reviews.  We manage accounts identified by the fraud detection system through technology that integrates fraud prevention and customer service. These strategies are subject to regular reviews and enhancements to enable us to respond quickly to changing conditions, as well as to protect our customers and our business from emerging fraud activity. More

AMAG Technology

Many large customers have chosen AMAG including Bank of America, Intuit and Yale University.  Unfortunately, I can’t mention more due to the customer requesting anonymity.  I can say we’ve landed a Fortune 20 global software and service company, the largest energy company in the Southeast U.S., and the most well-known building in New York, for starters.   They see the advantages of using their own readers, cards, enclosures and infrastructure, as well as our unique database conversion utility that will save end users countless hours of reworking data. More


security stock solutionsMr. Kenichi (Kevin) Mori
Director
Security Systems Division
Sony Electronics

Security is critical in the sports venue market, especially considering how many people attend a given event.  Stadiums present several different needs and challenges, as they can be well lit during the day, allowing you to see detail easily across the stadium, but at night, the needs are different, so they need to be equipped with a range of cameras. Sony managed the A/V system installation at Levi’s Stadium, home of the San Francisco 49ers.  The project included hundreds of security cameras, installed throughout the stadium, practice facility, workout facility, parking lot and retail space to help safeguard players, fans, employees and vendors. Additionally, in both 2013 and 2014 Sony’s IP cameras were used to secure and provide situational awareness for runners and spectators at the world’s biggest marathon, the New York City Marathon.  Safety and security at large scale events, like a marathon, have become a top priority and we have a wide range of cameras to support these needs from dome, bullet, 360 degree and pan-tilt-zoom.  We supported the marathon with more than 50Sony security cameras along the final leg of the route and at the finish line. Finally, hundreds of state-of-the-art Sony security cameras were in place during the FIFA World Cup in Brazil this summer. Sony was chosen for a variety of reasons, including its international scope, track record of success, previous work in stadium settings, as well as the seamless integration into Minas Arena’s current CCTV infrastructure.

security stock solutionsMr. Stu Hammer
Director, USPS Application Services Practice
HP Enterprise Services, U.S. Public Sector

Applications modernization has become imperative as the maintenance of “mature” applications has increased—consuming a disproportionate share of resources. HP aligns critical applications and infrastructure with your overall modernization program. We can help you address risk, optimize benefits and prioritize the business needs of your applications. There are some very significant benefits that we can get through modernization. We’ve seen between 25 and 45 percent savings in a reduction in operations cost, development cost and overall portfolio size. The approach HP uses has been successfully executed with hundreds of modernization projects - leveraging the Advise, Transform and Manage approach, which is backed up with a strong methodology, tools and the experience to execute and de-risk the approach. What’s critical in this process is to start with a complete assessment. It’s mandatory that you get the plan right and you know what your portfolio, know what your application environment is so you can execute successfully. We’ve seen clients fail by ineffectively planning this assessment phase. If you do nothing, your costs are going to continue to rise; executing a transformation plan is critical. More

Identiv
www.Identiv.com

Identiv’s uTrust products enable business executives and security leaders to make the paradigm shift from patchworked identity systems to a unified, simple, efficient identity solution that delivers higher security and resistance to obsolescence, for both premises and information access. Our uTrust products are unique in the marketplace as they are designed, tested, and supported to work together. No matter where a customer starts, Identiv provides the confidence that they can build a complete system in which everything works together.  Identiv’s idOnDemand service is a turn-key cloud-based platform that makes establishing a trusted ecosystem across all lines of business, geographic locations, devices, and people simple and convenient. Central to the idOnDemand service is the certification authority that issues PKI certificates — the standard for secure communications through the internet, banks, and high-security cryptographic applications within and outside the U.S. government for the last 20 years. By combining PKI with purpose-built secure hardware such as a smart card, USB token, or other devices, like mobile, the certificate’s private key is not only protected in a high state of security, but is also portable across devices and services, enabling pervasive use of strong identity whenever (and wherever) required.

ImageWare Systems, Inc.
www.iwsinc.com

Fujitsu, T-Systems, and IBM are three Blue-Chip companies we have gone to market with. These large, established partners offer the support, brand name and worldwide cloud platform needed to seamlessly distribute our products. At the beginning of April, Fujitsu announced the kick-off and worldwide expansion of our partnership model with a dedicated sales team covering the Americas. Since then, Fujitsu and ImageWare have closed a three-year agreement with a major international retailer who will use the IWS CloudID® products running in the Fujitsu cloud for face, finger, iris, and voice enrollment and matching.  Additionally, Fujitsu has set up proof of concept pilots with several of their major customers, with more expected in the near future, and has kicked off sales and marketing of the partnership products in Japan and China. Our partnership with T-Systems has led to a project with Deutsche Bahn, the German national railroad, who is slated to become the first customer receiving our joint product offering. We expect more to follow and anticipate this agreement will begin producing revenues in the fourth quarter. More

Distinguished Technologist, CISSP, CSSLP
HP Secure Product Development & Application Security Strategist
HP Enterprise Services, U.S. Public Sector, Cybersecurity Solutions

Attackers are better funded and more motivated today than they were in decades past. It used to be that the primary motivation of attackers was fame or just to prove that they could successfully exploit a vulnerability. Today, a large percentage of attacks are motivated by identity theft, credit card theft, industrial espionage, cyber warfare or “hactivism”, and some are Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs). In these cases, the motivation is significant financial, political or strategic gain and, as a result, the attackers are often well funded and more sophisticated. More


security stock solutionsMr. Mark L. Kay
Chairman and CEO
StrikeForce Technologies, Inc.
www.strikeforcetech.com

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."
