SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (Marketwired) -- 08/27/14 -- Guardian 8 Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Guardian 8 Holdings (OTCQB: GRDH), and Anderson Security Agency, an Arizona based top ten security provider, announced that the Pro V2 will be utilized by Anderson security officers at a new District Photo facility preparing to open in Phoenix. The Pro V2 enhanced non-lethal device provides security professionals with non-lethal means to protect people and assets, while providing the accountability and detailed reporting capability that corporate accounts often require.
Anderson was one of three security providers considered for the 1 year contract with District Photo, the photo finishing company that serves Walmart, Costco and other similar retail chains. District Photo's main security concern was the safety of the 85 employees who will work at the facility, which is located in an area with significant crime risk. Anderson was the only company that offered an Enhanced Non-Lethal option for incident response.
"District responded enthusiastically to the concept of Enhanced Non-Lethal, particularly because their RPF specified an unarmed post, and the Pro V2 is an option that fulfills the need for a heightened level of protection without a heightened risk," said Debbie Anderson, Vice President of Anderson Security Agency. Ms. Anderson stated the Pro V2's excellent quality audio/video incident recording along with a Bluetooth connection to a supervisory post were very appealing to District Photo. "Those are features you can't get with any other tool. We believe we won this account on the strength of the Pro V2 combined with Anderson's reputation for exceeding our clients' expectations and delivering the highest quality of professional private security services," Ms. Anderson said.
"The Pro V2 is a game changer for security providers," said Guardian 8 President and CEO Steve Cochennet. "Anderson Security's adoption of our technology allows us to provide them with an opportunity to have a preferred relationship with Guardian 8, which gives security providers a leading edge to differentiate their services in this highly competitive industry."
Anderson Security, the flagship member of Guardian 8's nationwide Preferred Partner program, anticipates rolling out a security program for District Photo by mid-September. The facility expects to be operating 24/7 during the holiday season.

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

Malicious agents are moving faster than the speed of business. Even more worrisome, most companies are relying on legacy approaches to security that are no longer capable of meeting current threats. In the modern cloud, threat diversity is rapidly expanding, necessitating more sophisticated security protocols than those used in the past or in desktop environments. Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.

Digital Transformation is the ultimate goal of cloud computing and related initiatives. The phrase is certainly not a precise one, and as subject to hand-waving and distortion as any high-falutin' terminology in the world of information technology. Yet it is an excellent choice of words to describe what enterprise IT—and by extension, organizations in general—should be working to achieve. Digital Transformation means: handling all the data types being found and created in the organizat...
