Proximity LLC and Partner Secure Channels Inc Launch With New Geolocation, Security and Point-of-Sale Solutions for the Internet of Things

New IoT Technology Is Protected by Patented Encryption From Secure Channels That Safeguards All Data in Motion or at Rest and the Storage of Media Files

IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/23/14 -- Partner companies Proximity LLC and Secure Channels Inc focusing on the integration of the patented encryption technologies, geolocation, mobile platforms, and point-of-sale (POS) solutions, IoT propriety hardware and software development and encrypted video technologies has launched in Irvine, California with a mission of using new patented encryption technologies for servicing and securing the Internet of Things (IoT). Proximity LLC has opened a new office in the Irvine Spectrum and today announces its launch and innovative partnership with cybersecurity company Secure Channels Inc, Bellingham, WA.

Technology entrepreneur Richard J Blech serves as president and Co-founder of both Proximity and Secure Channels Inc, managing both for the unique technology offerings the companies provide each other and industry partners. His primary business focus is on data security and technology and Blech is also interested in sustainability. In addition to his roles with Proximity and Secure Channels, he also holds the position of CEO of Environmental Corrections Corporation (ECO Corp.)

"The business benefits of the Proximity geolocation solutions are far-reaching and are being leveraged by all types of enterprises -- manufacturing, retail sales, financial services, telecommunication, POS, transportation, utilities and governments," said Blech. "As business and government services are enhanced, the user of those services benefits as well. Proximity and Secure Channels are strong technology partners together but each offers an international development team and specific solutions that can be effective even for firms we compete with. That's why this business model offers business flexibility not often seen, but critical to the success of both operations."

Proximity was Co-founded by Miguel Ileto Carlos, who serves as Vice President, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Marketing Officer. Carlos is a self-motivated entrepreneur with significant business development and client management experience. He is also a Partner in Secure Channels.

Proximity's products offer customers the following business benefits:

  • The use of designated market areas (DMA) and demographic data from metropolitan statistical areas (MSA).
  • Know your customer (KYC) features that provide a better understanding of customer requirements and expectations for products and services, as well as the benefits accruing from targeted sales.
  • Delivery and asset management (truck locations with manifest status).
  • Content customization and delivery, such as new movies or TV shows on demand.
  • Augmented reality which uses geo-reference data and other detection methods, such as motion sensors and compass, combined with virtual information from the internet, to enrich the user's world view.
  • Fine-grained management of internet commerce activities and interests.
  • E-discovery in support of litigation and regulatory enforcement; forensic security.
  • Highway toll devices, such as I-Pass or EZ-Pass® in the US.
  • Vehicle Ad Hoc Networks (VANS), as used in the EU.
  • Optimal request routing, similar to open-shortest-path-first routing technology.
  • Cloud balancing.
  • Fraud detection and prevention using IP location technology in conjunction with fraud profile data.
  • Real-time incident management through geolocation enrichment of logs and other IT data.

Secure Channels was Co-founded by Robert Coleridge who serves as the company's Chief Technology Officer. Coleridge has an extensive Systems Analyst/Software Engineer background and spent nearly 15 years at Microsoft as a Senior Software Design Engineer where he played key roles in the development of .NET and WCF. He designed and implemented Microsoft's first SOAP toolkit web services which is used by more than six billion devices. Coleridge holds a patent for PKMS2 -- an encryption technology that is deemed virtually unbreakable with modern technology.

"Today most firewalls and intrusion prevention systems can be broken into and thus storing data in an impenetrable form means that even if the data is accessed, it is useless to any unauthorized user," said Coleridge. "Our platform processes range from FIPS compliance only to far beyond classical PKI, to using multiple proprietary mathematical filters to encrypt the data with hundreds of mathematical filters and patterns available. The industry standard maximum, AES256 is only the beginning of where the Secure Channels patented processes start. Depending on which processes are selected, they can run on mobile platforms or use cloud based server platforms. A simple example is that to encrypt a 165K file using 21 filters with keys in excess of 16K bits takes less than two seconds using Secure Channels technology -- an unmatched benchmark in the industry today."

Both Proximity and Secure Channels will be announcing new products and technology at the upcoming BlackHat Conference 2014 in Las Vegas next month. For more information, go to www.proximity2.net and www.securechannels.com.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...
yperConvergence came to market with the objective of being simple, flexible and to help drive down operating expenses. It reduced the footprint by bundling the compute/storage/network into one box. This brought a new set of challenges as the HyperConverged vendors are very focused on their own proprietary building blocks. If you want to scale in a certain way, let’s say you identified a need for more storage and want to add a device that is not sold by the HyperConverged vendor, forget about it....
