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."

Videx, Inc., announced a new version of the CyberKey Vault 20, the CyberKey Vault 20 FX. The redesign features a sleek new look with weatherized input modules and an embedded Flex System Hub for improved performance, all offered at a new, lower price.
"The CyberKey Vault 20 FX is our most advanced key control cabinet (http://www.videx.com/cyberkey-vaults.html) yet," said James McGowan, VP of Sales and Marketing at Videx. "We built on the award winning original design and added extra durability and speed to meet the needs of today's demanding end-users. We believe it will surpass market expectations."
The Vault 20 FX is an intelligent key cabinet designed to manage, program, and dispense CyberKey smart keys. The keys are stored unprogrammed and locked securely in the cabinet until an RFID card and/or PIN code is presented to the cabinet. After reading the card and/or accepting the PIN, the CyberKey Vault programs a CyberKey with the individual's permissions. Keys are programmed with access privileges for each user, detailing which electronic locks (http://www.videx.com/cyberlock_cylinders.html) it can open and when. An audit record of all events is stored in both the locks and the keys. Each time a key is used at a lock, a record of the lock ID, date, and time is stored in the key, and a record of the key ID, date, and time is stored in the lock.
CyberKeys feature a unique electronic ID, preventing duplication. Although two keys can be programmed alike, each one leaves its own unique record within the system. When the key is returned to the Vault, the Vault downloads the key's audit trail, removes its permissions, and begins charging the key.
Videx offers three robust smart key vaults: CyberKey Vault 1, CyberKey Vault 20 FX, and CyberKey Vault WR. To learn more about the CyberLock line of access control (http://www.videx.com/cyberlock_overview.html) products, please visit our website at www.cyberlock.com.

ImageWare Systems recently announced, "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 Jim Miller, Chairman and CEO. "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."

Keyscan Access Control Systems
Keyscan Access Control Systems recently announced that its' next generation communication module, the CIM (Communications Interlink Module), is now available.
The Keyscan CIM is a new communication control module designed to use a CAN Bus communication network to provide optimized server to Access Control Unit (ACU) communication as well as give users an all new ACU to ACU network permitting inter-panel communication for global functions including anti-passback, global input/output and global time zones.
"The Keyscan CIM is just another example of Keyscan Access Control Systems' commitment to innovation and quality. It is the new communication standard for Keyscan and opens up a host of new features as well as enhancements especially for global communication," says Steve Dentinger, Keyscan Director of Sales and Marketing.
The Keyscan CIM utilizes a Controller Area Network (CAN) Bus infrastructure to establish a communication network among multiple ACUs as well ACUs and a host server. The capabilities of CAN already surpass those of other serial communication technologies. But, Keyscan didn't stop there.
Keyscan CIM combines the robust CAN Bus protocol with a hardware interface that is superior to the standard commercial-grade CAN Bus. It is a fully isolated CAN Bus using high speed digital isolation devices that separates ground reference of the CIM and ACU from the ground reference of the CAN Bus transceiver. This reduces problems found when there is a difference in ground potential between units. This is often observed in multi-building installations or in poor grounding conditions.
This isolation further protects the CIM, and connected ACU, from lightning strikes or electrical surges reducing the occurrence of module failure. It also ensures a single unpowered CIM cannot adversely affect the data of the CAN Bus.
A common-mode filtering at the CAN Bus transceiver reduces ground referenced noise from the CAN Bus which improves signal quality reducing bit errors and bus faults. DC biased termination resistors provide the necessary termination of the CAN Bus cabling but also ensure the full potential of the CAN Bus signal is utilized. In addition to providing server to ACU and global inter-panel communication, the Keyscan CIM also includes impressive new features including ground loop protection, enhanced device-based diagnostic capabilities, improved speed and unprecedented reliability.
"The Keyscan CIM offers new features, enhancements and possibilities, especially when it comes to global communications," Dentinger continued.
"It changes the dynamics of Keyscan ACU to ACU and ACU to server communication and forms a new foundation for global communication. And, once again, demonstrates how Keyscan offers access control systems without limits; and innovation without boundaries."

KEEP YOUR IP
Keep Your IP recently announced their cooperation with global standards provider, UL (Underwriters Laboratories) in an attempt to expand the scope of several of their standards and categories wherein the Keep Your IP line of IP forwarding services can become certified.
At present, UL's Certification of Alarm Services is specific to protected properties and has some limits. These limits include the aspects of the telecommunications infrastructure within the service. UL Alarm Service Certificates currently specify that their Certificates do not apply to the communications channel between the protected property and any facility that monitors signals from the protected property.
Keep Your IP's service, and its supporting hardware, lie in the communications channel between protected property and the monitoring facility which presently puts it outside the scope of UL's Certification.
Davin Roos, President of KYI, Inc., says, "We are very excited to assist UL in establishing a category that will address new technological advancements on communications within the alarm industry."
"Today's technology makes it possible for innovators to deliver an amazing array of new and beneficial services. Helping organizations bring those services into the market in a way that preserves the integrity of the public's security is a big part of UL's mission." stated Steve Schmit, Engineering Manager at UL LLC out of Northbrook, IL. "We look forward to working with Keep Your IP and the entire industry on Certification solutions that bring trust and confidence to all stakeholders."
UL has confirmed that an alarm company's use of the Keep Your IP service would not impact their Listing or Certification status in any way.
To that end, UL has communicated their desire to better accommodate the rapidly changing communications infrastructure and hope to have an offering that fits the Keep Your IP product in the not too distant future, possibly as early as the first quarter of 2013.
Keep Your IP also recently announced a major reseller agreement with COPS Monitoring, one of the country's largest wholesale monitoring companies.
KYI, Inc. and COPS Monitoring have signed an agreement wherein COPS will offer the complete lineup of Keep Your IP services to their approximately 3,500 dealers.
Keep Your IP is considered the industry's first and only internet IPv4 forwarding service designed exclusively for the alarm industry. Keep Your IP services will be both a tool to increase value for the alarm dealer by giving them better control over of their accounts as well as critical IP disaster recovery support service for the Central Station.
Davin Roos, president of KYI, Inc., says, "By providing alarm professionals with their own secure IPv4 numbered address, they get the peace of mind of knowing that as their business grows and merges into the new internet IP based world, they will be able to direct that growth as they desire."
"COPS Monitoring continually searches for ways to offer leading-edge services to help our dealers prosper," added Jim McMullen, President and COO of COPS Monitoring. "We are proud to offer Keep Your IP's services and we're confident that our dealers will see the advantages of having the flexibility and assurances they can offer."

eSignSystems, a division of Wave Systems Corp., recently announced that CoreLogic® has launched AuthoSign, a comprehensive electronic document management and signing capability built upon eSignSystems technology. AuthoSign is a custom deployment of eSignSystems' SmartSAFE electronic signing and management software that has been integrated directly into IntelliMods, a complete loan modification decisioning solution from CoreLogic. CoreLogic is a leader in providing comprehensive data, analytics and services to financial services and real estate professionals.
CoreLogic provides tremendous time and cost savings through its automated and customizable loan modification decisioning and delivery solution. IntelliMods from CoreLogic can upload a single loan or an entire loan portfolio within minutes to qualify loan modifications, output documents, and send them to the borrower. This presents significant cost savings for the mortgage banking industry, which has completed more than 5.82 million permanent loan modifications since 2007 as reported by HOPE NOW.
The AuthoSign integration with IntelliMods shortens the loan modification process by several days, and even weeks, for significant time and cost savings over traditional paper-based loan modification decisioning systems. Additionally, AuthoSign tracks and creates action alerts for each individual participating in the mortgage process and hosts the entire signing ceremony online. Every transaction is logged for retrieval by IntelliMods, ensuring comprehensive tracking of every user and signer's activity within AuthoSign. Additionally, management of the entire process is even easier with the detailed tracking, compliance and alerts. This simplifies and speeds up the loan modification process, and keeps all stakeholders informed on the status of the loan modification decisioning and signings.
"CoreLogic is committed to increasing quality and reducing cost and turnaround time for our clients," said Sapan Bafna, Senior Director at CoreLogic. "By including the eSignSystems' technology as part of CoreLogic IntelliMods, we can offer our customers an easy to use and secure electronic SigningRoom. Plus, AuthoSign tracks electronic documents throughout their lifecycle, and creates an enforceable, legally-binding electronic record."
Maintaining an electronically signed record is essential to the integrity of a legally binding transaction. With AuthoSign, all records are verified and authenticated from eDelivery through eSignature and eRetention. This ensures that the access or signing credential (i.e., digital certificate, username or password) is verified and that the records remain free from tampering. Additionally, AuthoSign continuously updates the status of the loan modification's execution for real-time reporting.
AuthoSign also supports signer access to electronically signed documents as required by the ESIGN act. To meet the ESIGN act's legal and compliance requirements, users may access and print certified copies, while the actual archived, eSigned document is left untouched. Authorized individuals can manage, search, transfer and share electronic files, signed or unsigned, via the Web. All records are available to all interested parties in a secure and compliant environment.
"With the Treasury Department requiring a Single Point of Contact for all loan modifications, AuthoSign provides IntelliMods with a secure and compliant tool to manage, track and execute every aspect of the loan modification process, with audit trails from the beginning to the end of the transaction," said Kelly Purcell, EVP of eSignSystems. "CoreLogic even broke new ground as the first integrator to utilize a powerful new PDF text tagging feature of the SigningRoom, which expands their customers' ability to effectively identify and sign within PDF documents."
By integrating eSignSystems SmartSAFE technology into the IntelliMods loan modification decisioning solution, CoreLogic is providing better security and privacy for all parties involved in the transaction. In addition, traditional document transportation and storage costs are reduced dramatically, and the cycle time of loan modification is reduced by days or even weeks.
Wave Systems also recently announced that Scrambls for Enterprise (www.scrambls.com) was launched, giving organizations a means for their employees to safely collaborate over social media sites like Twitter® (www.Twitter.com) and Facebook (www.Facebook.com), and share files with cloud services like Dropbox (www.Dropbox.com) and Salesforce.com® (www.Salesforce.com). Scrambls protects data that is often overlooked in corporate security initiatives -- information shared online via social media, files stored in the cloud and data in motion.
Employees are free to leverage existing social media infrastructures to enter status updates, Tweets, blog posts, files and more, without jeopardizing security or privacy. Scrambls for Enterprise encrypts data before it ever leaves a user's computer or smartphone. Posts and files can only be viewed by those the enterprise grants permission to -- everyone else sees scrambled text.
"Social media and cloud services are expanding the way business is done, but enterprises need greater control of the information they share across the public web," commented Steven Sprague, scrambls co-creator and CEO of Wave Systems. "These services are often self-discovered by employees who use them to share critical information. Enterprises need to take responsibility for this new flow of data, and scrambls provides the privacy, security and audit controls similar to what you'd see with corporate email accounts."
The power of scrambls lies in the permissions granted to group members. To read a post or descramble a file, the service automatically applies the permission to make it readable again for only those individuals granted access. Business administrators set the policy and manage the groups. Add or remove people from the groups at any time to change who can read messages and files, even after they've been published on the web.
"Scrambls can open up new business opportunities with use cases for every type of vertical market," continued Sprague. "In healthcare, a private and protected channel for communication leads to better care and service. It's easy for doctors, social workers and caregivers to have sensitive discussions about the care of a family member in real time using popular tools like Twitter or Facebook. Those conversations remain private with scrambls."
