About InsMark

InsMark’s product line utilizes a unique approach to illustrating all forms of cash value life insurance. Illustration design requires the coordination of three disciplines: actuarial, legal and creative presentation, and no system is good at mastering all three. InsMark deals solely with creative presentations -- leaving actuarial considerations to the carrier. To do this, InsMark developed its proprietary specifications (Button File) that each licensed insurance company uses to “link” data from its basic illustration systems. With this approach, the field producer can present InsMark illustrations as “top page” concept proposals or, as the MDRT has calls them, “diet” proposals. Mathematical and legal compliance is covered by requiring that the insurance company’s illustrations must accompany the InsMark presentation. To this end, InsMark was the driving force behind the NAIC’s acceptance of “supplemental illustrations” as a special presentation category. Although client companies often request customization of InsMark output for compliance purposes, separating the creative presentation from the actuarial number crunching gives InsMark -- and its customers -- a distinct advantage in software development. Typically, such development requires an extensive commitment of time and dollars due to the actuarial demands of the project. This leaves little time or resources to develop the artistic portion of the presentation. InsMark’s linking technology allows its research and development staff to concentrate on the artistic aspects of the presentation. Proving that this technique works, InsMark is the only illustration system consistently asked for by name by insurance producers in the field.

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud.

Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
