HP Enterprise Services

Mr. John Felker, Director, Cyber and Intelligence Strategy, HP Enterprise Services, U.S. Public Sector, told us, "HP takes an enterprise view of security which, in turn, helps our clients overcome the limitations typically associated with historical and siloed views of risk mitigation, globalized security and cost reductions. With the increased deployment of digital technologies, frequently operated remotely and unmanned, comes the need for increased cyber and physical security for critical assets such as SCADA systems. At HP, we don't simply improve your security posture to address threats and manage risk and compliance, we also bring to bear an array of services, solutions and industry-leading technology to ensure you maintain a proactive, mature and agile security posture designed to navigate through ever-evolving threat and regulatory landscapes. By leveraging cloud, big data and mobility initiatives, you can evolve into a more proactive operating model which will increase productivity, optimize resource utilization and help you build and maintain safe, secure and environmentally sound operations."

ImageWare Systems

ImageWare Systems reported earlier this month that, "Fujitsu, a leading information and communication technology company, and ImageWare Systems (IWSY) (IWS), a leader in Identity as a Service (IDaaS) cloud-based with multimodal biometric identity management solutions, announced the global availability of pay-as-you-go, plug-n-play multimodal biometric cloud identity and authentication services. This new offering provides enhanced enterprise-level data security and enables rapid integration into existing or new corporate programs and applications. The new biometric-as-a-Service (BaaS) solution leverages the Fujitsu Cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) Trusted Public S5 platform, as well as its Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) enablement tool, SystemWalker® Catalog Manager.

"We are seeing a growing need within the mobility, retail, healthcare, financial services and banking industries to securely identify and authenticate mission-critical operations, data and transaction information, while also addressing IT demands for utilizing easily-deployed, scalable, cloud-based solutions," said David Berry, executive vice president, Infrastructure Services at Fujitsu America, Inc. "Multimodal biometric cloud identity and authentication services are ideal for these companies, and our continued work with ImageWare (IWSY) uniquely positions Fujitsu to address both the needs of these types of companies and their customers by delivering compelling biometric solutions that can be quickly deployed in the cloud and provide immediate data integrity and security."

As a key component to this new cloud-based offering, Fujitsu is leveraging IWS's GoCloudID™, a premier patented cloud-based, biometric identity management platform. Providing a full biometric identity management application suite, GoCloudID reliably manages access to biometric enrollment and verification to ensure first-rate data integrity and protection. In addition to being algorithm and hardware agnostic, the system enables plug-and-play and can be deployed globally as an end-to-end or modular solution in a matter of hours rather than days or weeks. GoCloudID includes a software development kit for rapid integration into existing company programs and applications. Operating with a pay-as-you-go model, GoCloudID makes it cost effective to incorporate biometric identity verification into new and existing enterprise and service provider applications.

The new offering also addresses security on mobile devices through IWS's GoMobile Interactive™ (GMI), a biometric-enabled mobile platform that provides reliable, simple and fast multifactor identity management. GMI delivers app-level identity verification, fraud and theft prevention of mobile transactions and active monitoring for unauthorized access/use.

"With more and more mobile devices being designed with biometric features and worldwide mobile device payments expected to reach $400 billion by 2015, it is critical we work with leading technology companies like Fujitsu, to effectively and holistically address legacy identity and access management security challenges facing businesses and consumers in a big-data, smart mobile world," said Jim Miller, CEO of ImageWare Systems (IWSY). "We have a track record for more than a decade working in a variety of large and demanding environments. In Fujitsu, we have a partner who delivers world-class cloud services for public, on-premise and private infrastructure platforms.

McAfee reported earlier this month, on April 9th,

"McAfee has both the breadth and the depth of security offerings needed to support the complexity and massive scale of the Internet of Things," said Steve Hoffenberg, Director of M2M Embedded Software & Tools at VDC Research. "With the company's strong collaborations with Intel and Wind River, as well as its long history of securing information technology, McAfee is well positioned to proactively address the security needs of the IoT."

McAfee is focused on addressing security challenges specific to the Internet of Things, including expanded requirements for trust, solution integrity, accountability and privacy. These solutions must deliver interoperable security which establishes appropriate and effective protection as every layer including the device connection and the cloud.

"Security needs to be built in as the foundation of the Internet of Things," said Michael Fey, worldwide chief technology officer for Intel Security. "Any disruption to these IP connected devices can cause damage to the business and our daily lives. We need to have foresight into what is coming so we can prevent against threats and securely manage these devices. McAfee is enabling the future and the possibilities that the Internet of Things brings to our daily lives."
