AMAG recently announced...
Traka Integrates With AMAG Technology' Symmetry Access Control Software via the Symmetry Extended Business Solutions Program
Traka is a Certified Partner of AMAG's Symmetry Extended Business Solutions Program.
Traka, the key management specialist, can now integrate its systems with the Symmetry access control system from AMAG Technology. As a Certified Partner, the Traka32 software integrates with AMAG's Symmetry v7.0.1 access control software. AMAG and Traka cooperatively tested and certified this integration.
The integration allows the functionality of the Traka32 software to be managed through Symmetry. The access control platform can now include key management along with its existing identity management, alarm management, video management and command and control functionality. Symmetry can be scaled up or down depending on the size of the business. Used by 30,000 organizations in 90 countries, Symmetry is an open security software that meets all typical IP networking and integration requirements.
Traka32's curfew functionality ensures keys are checked out or returned in specific, defined time increments and fault logging can show a problem that occurred during an asset's use and ensures that faulty items are automatically locked-in until fixed. Through Symmetry, it can also create a closed-loop system which means that if a key, particularly one that is sensitive to the security of the facility, is not returned it can prompt an alarm that allows the central administrator to automatically restrict access permissions. This means that individuals can be restricted from leaving the building if they have not returned a key.

HP Enterprise Services
Mr. George Romas, Technical Director, Cybersecurity Solutions Group, HP Enterprise Services, U.S. Public Sector, told us, "IoT will create completely new industries that form around smart devices. We already see the beginnings of that today, where smoke detectors, thermostats, audio/video equipment, watches, smart phones, vehicles and more are becoming sensor-rich and network-enabled. Everyday devices in your home or office will collaborate to form new capabilities. An example of this scenario can be demonstrated through home security. Using IoT, your home would know that your house is vacant by polling the motion detectors embedded in its Nest Protect smoke detectors and thermostat, and correlating that information with the family schedule (work and school). When the back door opens without the proper key code or ping from an authenticated smart phone and motion is detected, your home sounds a piercing alarm over the whole-house audio speaker system. In turn, it also sends an alert with streaming video to the police, sends warning texts to all family members, and disrupts other communications from within the house. "

ImageWare Systems recently announced...
ImageWare Systems, Inc. (OTCQB: IWSY) (ImageWare), a leader in mobile and cloud-based, multi-modal biometric identity management solutions, has issued financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014, as well as provided a corporate update to highlight the company's progress since its last update on March 17, 2014.
- Partnered with IBM to provide Imageware's cloud-based, multi-modal biometric identity management and user authentication platform on the IBM Cloud Platform, BlueMix.
- Signed agreement to provide ImageWare's GoMobile Interactive product via Fujitsu's Global Cloud Platform with Maxie Mobile for their mobile wallet offering, initially targeted towards the gaming industry.
- T-Systems and ImageWare have secured the first customer under the new partnership. The first customer is Deutsche Bahn, the German national rail company. ImageWare expects this implementation to commence and begin producing revenues in the third quarter of 2014.
First Quarter 2014 Financial Results
Total revenues in the first quarter of 2014 increased to $1.1 million from $0.9 million in the first quarter of 2013, primarily due to higher sales of identification software license revenue.
Gross margin in the first quarter of 2014 increased by 410 basis points to 76.4% compared to 72.3% in the first quarter of 2013. The increase was primarily due to the increased software license revenues.
Net loss in the first quarter of 2014 was $1.7 million or ($0.02) per basic share, compared to a net loss of $2.8 million or ($0.04) per basic share in the first quarter of 2013.
At March 31, 2014, cash and cash equivalents totaled $2.2 million compared to $2.4 million at December 31, 2013. The company continues to carry virtually no debt and its $3.5 million line of credit that remains untapped.
"Our strategy to target large IT service providers and provide security for their cloud customers and applications is gaining traction, as demonstrated by our most recent partnership with IBM," said Jim Miller, chairman and CEO of ImageWare. "IBM marks our third secured agreement with a major cloud partner, and we expect more to come. These large, established partners offer the support, brand name and worldwide cloud platform needed to seamlessly distribute our products. While IBM's BlueMix is in the early stages, we've already received referrals from their customers - several of which we are in active discussions.
"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 has set up proof of concept pilots with three of their major customers, with more expected in the near future.
"By working closely with our technology partners, we continue to build a healthy active pipeline of potential customers. One includes a new partnership with Maxie Mobile, where we will provide our GoMobile Interactive product via Fujitsu's Global Cloud Platform for Maxie's mobile wallet offering, which is initially targeted towards the gaming industry.
"Our partnership with T-Systems continues to progress quickly. In fact, T-Systems has recently secured an agreement with Deutsche Bahn, the German national railroad, who will become the first customer receiving our joint product offering. We expect more to follow and anticipate this agreement will begin producing revenues in the third quarter of 2014.
"We see our relationships with IBM, Fujitsu, T-Systems and others representing just the tip of the iceberg in terms of our opportunities in the commercial and consumer marketplaces. All of these partnerships are progressing well, and although they have not yet produced revenue, there is every indication that the steps we have been taking are building shareholder value and will ultimately provide a steady stream of recurring revenue."

March Networks® recently announced that...
And, in other recent news...
March Networks®, a global provider of intelligent IP video solutions, today announced that America's largest wine and spirits superstore Total Wine & More has standardized on its next-generation retail video surveillance solution. The privately-owned chain is using the March Networks offering to maintain its strong security and loss prevention efforts across 100 outlets located in 15 states, and to capture clear video evidence to assist with liability protection as it grows its e-commerce business.
Total Wine, which is adding 12-15 new stores annually, transitioned to the March Networks 8000 Series Hybrid NVRs and Visual Intelligence software when it began opening Internet fulfilment centers in its stores. The 25,000-square-foot retail outlets hold nearly 14,000 types of wines, beers and spirits and feature walk-in cigar humidors and keg rooms, wine tasting areas and classrooms. While existing analog cameras are in place to monitor the stores' public areas, Total Wine needed high-definition (HD) IP cameras to capture essential data when packaging bottles that could retail for up to $2,000. The 8000 Series recorders can support a mix of analog and IP cameras or as many as 32 IP cameras, giving Total Wine the freedom to transition to HD video cost-effectively as its business requirements evolve.
"We didn't want to abandon our analog cameras, and the March Networks solution allowed us to add more IP cameras to our build-out where and when we needed them," said Total Wine Senior Project Manager Mark Ganter. "We're very happy with the solution and the support we have received. We have such vast coverage that we can see almost every part of a store, and we now use the video surveillance system if we need to investigate a problem or inspect an area in any of our stores."
Total Wine operates mini-fulfillment centers within select stores, where product is pulled from the shelves, packaged and shipped to customers by courier. IP cameras in the fulfillment rooms capture images of the bottles, shipping information and labels for proof of packaging and delivery. Additional IP cameras are positioned to capture the pickup by the courier, at which time all liability transfers to the courier. If the need arises, Total Wine can review its video archives to retrace the steps of the fulfillment process and verify exact details.
The high-performance March Networks 8000 Series Hybrid NVRs provide the retailer with unparalleled reliability and scale, centralized system management and the ability to remotely access live and recorded video. In the future, Total Wine may also take advantage of video analytics and software applications available in the March Networks retail portfolio for expanded loss prevention, operations and marketing intelligence.
"Our experience working with some of the world's largest retailers has resulted in our next-generation offering, which is ideally suited to help organizations like Total Wine & More protect and grow their business and optimize operations," said Net Payne, Chief Marketing Officer, March Networks. "Retailers are using video-based intelligence to better protect assets, prevent losses, enhance security and increase profits in the process. The technology is now considered a competitive advantage rather than just a security system."

StrikeForce Technologies recently announced....
1st Quarter 2014 10Q Financial Results
Remains Bullish on 2014 Projections
StrikeForce Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB: SFOR) reported on May 20th its 1st Quarter 2014 Financial Results, which shows a decrease in net revenues as compared to 1st Quarter 2013, while remaining bullish on the 2014 annual gross sales projections.
"StrikeForce and its global sales channel are signing new planned deals that potentially could be strong revenue producers during 2014 and beyond. StrikeForce's revenues for the 1st Quarter ended March 31,2014 was $90,901 compared to $160,991 for the 1st Quarter ended March 31, 2013, a decrease of $70,090 or 43.5%, primarily due to the decrease in sales of our GuardedID® keystroke encryption sales resulting from our initiated litigation due to our claim of a breach of contract by one of our partners, along with delays in realizing revenues from some of our new distributor's clients, and in delayed rollout of our new mobile security technologies."
"StrikeForce remains very positive about our near and long term future, even more now than ever. Our patent portfolio continues to grow; we have signed new agreements with partners and them with their clients in the US and abroad that will be announced in time. Based on current agreements and their minimum sales potential, we already anticipate reaching our minimum potential projections stated for 2014," says Mark Kay, CEO.
