Marc Blackmer, Product Marketing Manager, Industry Solutions, Security Business Group, Cisco, shared with us, “We at Cisco are fully committed to the IoT, and we believe the IoT must be secured for its promise to be realized. Securing the IoT is easier said than done, though. The first complication is that most IoT devices can’t protect themselves. To be fair, there are a number of reasons why they can’t, but from a cybersecurity perspective, those reasons don’t matter. A vulnerability is a vulnerability is a vulnerability. And these vulnerabilities create ample opportunities for an attacker to exploit those devices and gain access to your network.“  For our complete interview with Marc Blackmer please click here or here:

Cyberinc launches IAMobile™ App for One Identity’s Identity Manager

Cyberinc, a global enterprise security leader with recognised expertise in Identity Management, today announced the launch of its IAMobileTM Application for Identity Manager. The IAMobileTM Application certified by One Identity, will help in addressing the Enterprise Mobility requirement within organisations.

IAMobileTM will help expand Identity Manager’s IT shop functionality of simplifying the process of managing user identities, access permissions and security policies, by providing a powerful and fully integrated mobile application with an unique user experience. This mobile application will enable users to govern their access, manage their approval tasks, attestation events and place product requests, anytime and anywhere from their respective mobile devices.

This App will streamline the routine requests and approvals process between users and the respective managers. The seamless connectivity and access ensured by this intuitive App will help in reducing risks associated with delayed access, and preventing security compromises through credential sharing between users.

Mike Nelsey, Managing Director, UK & Europe, Cyberinc, said, “Our colleagues at One Identity have fully endorsed the concept of mobility, convenience and security in certifying the App. We are delighted with the interest and acceptance it has garnered in the market place.”

“We are excited to work closely with One Identity towards launching the IAMobile App that is highly complementary to their solutions. We’ve created a unique user experience that addresses the core challenges of a mobile audience and the need for effective and efficient processes. Moreover, it fundamentally addresses one of the key concerns surrounding requests and approvals; that of balancing security and convenience for the mobile workforce. We will invest further to incorporate elements such as Password Management and Identity Analytics.”

“It’s encouraging to see key partners like Cyberinc taking the initiative and responding to customer needs by developing their own intellectual property around Identity Manager,” said Jackson Shaw, Senior Director of Product Management at One Identity. “Enterprise Mobility has a tendency to be a sticking point for a lot of organisations and the IAMobile Application for Identity Manager alleviates these issues, keeping users secure and productive.”  More

• Dell EMC, Graham Porter, Business Development Director EMEA, Surveillance and Security

“The Munich Airport system is a paradigm among airport security systems. It was designed around a single centralized and virtual data archiving system, accessible to anyone with permission anywhere on the airport network, and uses behavioral analytics to trigger alarm, camera management (zoom into the picture, follow a suspect, increase image resolution etc.) thereby reducing the number and scope of ‘People-Watching-Cameras’ and providing a massive saving for the airport operators. The system installed was placed by a Dell EMC partner in a public competitive RFP, so value as well as functional excellence was a determinant of the solution choice. We are given permission to reference this system and use it for show-&-tell visits and in our sales meetings with new and existing Customers. The airport has since expanded the system beyond the original scope and size of the original purchased hardware, emphasizing their commitment to our solution and their happiness with it.

Extenua has released a most timely white paper…

This free white paper discusses the challenges of keeping ransomware (Cryptolocker, WannaCry, and the like) out of the corporate data storage, whether it is local, in the cloud or hybrid.


“Ransomware is a type of malware that restricts access to the infected computer system, and demands that the user pay a ransom to the malware operators to remove the restriction. Probably the most famous ransomware, even though not the only one, is Cryptolocker, and it’s certainly something you don’t want to deal with. Regardless of the strenuous efforts put in place by Antivirus developers, the rate of infection is astonishing, and these days it’s becoming even worse with an unprecedented outbreak of infection. To make things even worse, ransomware can also access all the shared folders on your NAS/SAN, so if you backup to a network drive your backups will be compromised too. The ransomware goals include, in fact, preventing you from being able to restore your old (healthy) data from a backup.”

“Even in case your systems are infected by a ransomware,
you will simply be able to format your computer,
reinstall your operating system,
and restore all your data from an always-healthy backup.”

Scott Suhy, CEO, NetWatcher, told us," There is a giant opportunity here for MSPs at the moment. If you look at each vertical by employee size and count up the number of companies that fit into each just in the USA the numbers are staggering   All of these organizations are moving to a more advanced security footprint over the next several years.   You also know that they will first look to their MSP partner to provide the advanced stack and if you can’t provide it, they will find a MSP that can provide the stack and manage it for them.

We built NetWatcher to enable MSPs to easily offer their own Security Monitoring / Managed Security / Managed Detection and Response service.   We designed and built NetWatcher from the ground up for SMBs and MSPs.   We built the service to be easy to install, easy to use for SMB/MSP IT professionals (not hard to find security analysts–although, analysts tend to love it too) and affordable.  MSPs will also find the multi-tenant single pane of glass user interface where they can manage all their customers — and the ConnectWise integration very valuable.” More


Money2020, Sanjib Kalita, Chief Marketing Officer

“Money20/20 was founded in 2012 by people running businesses in the payments industry who realized that companies, both large and small as well as across industries, were getting into payments and financial services with disruptive technologies, business models and value propositions. There wasn’t a single event that met the needs of where the industry was heading so we decided to build it.

After we created a unifying event for the community in North America, we realized that other geographies could use the catalytic and unifying energy of Money20/20.  In 2016, we launched Money20/20 Europe in Copenhagen. In 2018, Money20/20 Europe will move to Amsterdam and we’ll launch Money20/20 Asia in Singapore in March.

Our 2017 agenda will continue to address the most pressing issues from the industry and highlight some of the most interesting speakers and companies from across the globe. The 2017 exhibit hall will be an ideal place to meet companies and begin conversations regardless of whether you’re a global giant or a scrappy startup. If you’re working on defining or delivering the future of the industry, I would recommend attending the show this year.” More
