Silent Shield Unveils CATIE®, New Software in Fight against Crime

Silent Shield, LLC, officially released its highly anticipated, evidence gathering and tracking software, CATIE today. CATIE, or Capture And Track Investigative Evidence, offers active law enforcement personnel and government agencies a new, more sophisticated level of tracking, preserving, and securing online, offline, and real-time investigations and evidence.

CATIE provides cost-effective tools to track, trace, and preserve evidence, which results in a more accurate and efficient data capture than most processes in use today. The software boasts an interactive command center (ICC) that operates in zones. The ICC collates and manages user profile preferences so multiple law enforcement officials can easily and methodically interact on the same cases.

The software is available to registered law enforcement and government agencies and offers features that include multiple, simultaneous video recording windows, advanced/automated screen capturing methodologies, specialized key logging capabilities, instantaneous Internet protocol (IP) tracking, encrypted agent-to-agent communications, lightning fast report generation, and the ability to simultaneously manage multiple investigations. CATIE is easily customized with optional software modules, such as Covert Short Message Service (SMS), which incorporates text messaging interchanges and logging, to meet each agent’s or agency’s unique needs. CATIE’s reach and powerful backend systems further support and streamline the investigative processes.

“We’re excited to offer CATIE with its advanced technical capabilities, innovations and streamlined processes,” says Jim Persinger, Silent Shield’s Managing Partner. Persinger adds, “CATIE significantly reduces the amount of time spent investigating cases and processing evidence with its state-of-the-art functions. CATIE is a force to be reckoned with because it proactively empowers its user, increases efficiencies, and offers cutting-edge technical advances that have not been available until now.”

CATIE is a powerful tool in the fight against criminal activity, including the onslaught of human trafficking and child endangerment, drug and arms dealing, and hacking and cyber stalking; the software is Silent Shield’s newest addition to its CyberNet Suite(SM). CATIE’s data can interface with other forensic tools, saving valuable investigative time in both the field and the lab.

Silent Shield is also sponsoring the first team-oriented Digital Crime Scene Challenge at the 26th Annual Crimes Against Children Conference, in Dallas, Texas, from August 11-14, 2014. Bill Walsh, Conference Coordinator for the Crimes Against Children Conference, says, “We have wanted to offer a Digital Crime Scene Challenge for the last few years. Teams of three will compete against each other in a mock crime scene with the goal of collecting as much evidence as possible within a specific time frame and formulating an investigative response plan. This is the first time the conference can offer a team challenge of this nature and magnitude due, in part, to Silent Shield’s generosity.”

Silent Shield’s mission is to proactively empower law enforcement and government agencies by providing hardware devices, software products, and specialized training to increase the responsiveness and effectiveness of officers, agents, and military personnel. A portion of Silent Shield’s proceeds supports related non-profit organizations.

It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
"We focus on composable infrastructure. Composable infrastructure has been named by companies like Gartner as the evolution of the IT infrastructure where everything is now driven by software," explained Bruno Andrade, CEO and Founder of HTBase, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications? To answer this, first we have to look and explore the security models of the technologies that IoT is founded upon. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nevi Kaja, a Research Engineer at Ford Motor Company, discussed some of the security challenges of the IoT infrastructure and related how these aspects impact Smart Living. The material was delivered interac...
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
Cloud applications are seeing a deluge of requests to support the exploding advanced analytics market. “Open analytics” is the emerging strategy to deliver that data through an open data access layer, in the cloud, to be directly consumed by external analytics tools and popular programming languages. An increasing number of data engineers and data scientists use a variety of platforms and advanced analytics languages such as SAS, R, Python and Java, as well as frameworks such as Hadoop and Spark...
In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing. Now, all of the major cloud computing vendors want to take part in this disruptive technology. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Doug Vanderweide, an instructor at Linux Academy, discussed why major players like AWS, Microsoft Azure, IBM Bluemix, and Google Cloud Platform are all trying to sidestep VMs and containers wit...
Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
"When we talk about cloud without compromise what we're talking about is that when people think about 'I need the flexibility of the cloud' - it's the ability to create applications and run them in a cloud environment that's far more flexible,” explained Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
