AMAG, HP Enterprise Services, U.S. Public Sector, ImageWare and SAP Are Featured in Thought Leadership Interviews

RYE BROOK, NY--(Marketwired - Sep 10, 2014) -


AMAG Technology

Mr. Matt Barnette, President, AMAG Technology, told us, "We are thrilled to be a part of the Hudson Yards project so early on in the process. This project when finished will be the largest real estate development in Manhattan since Rockefeller Center. Five office towers, 5,000 residences, 100 shops, 20 restaurants, and 14 acres of public space will reside over Hudson Yards, taking up six city blocks. Symmetry will be installed in the first tower, which is being built now. Bank of America will be installing AMAG's Symmetry OneFacility cloud solution, SymmetryCONNECT that will tie the banks disparate security systems together. The overlay delivers one dashboard so security personnel only have to learn one security system and use one set of data. As the bank upgrades, it will install AMAG's Symmetry SR Retrofit solution, saving the bank thousands of dollars on hardware. Yale University has also chosen the Symmetry SR Retrofit solution. The three to five year project will include new installations, as well as retrofit upgrades to replace its legacy Casi Rusco security system. Evans Hall, home to the School of Management, was the first building integrated into Yale's new security system. The new Symmetry system will manage 120 proximity card readers and 100 cameras to serve 16 classrooms, 22 breakout rooms, three library spaces, 13 interview rooms and office space for roughly 120 faculty and 195 staff. Approximately 7,000 doors will be converted to Symmetry when the project is completed. Click here.

HP Enterprise Services

Ms. Diana Zavala, Director, Analytics and Data Management, HP Enterprise Services, U.S. Public Sector, told us, "Today, information is complex, available in real time and mostly unstructured. An enterprise must have the ability to analyze unstructured and structured information in order to gain deeper insights. Modernizing traditional business intelligence platforms by adding the ability to process unstructured or "human" information -- social media, email, voice, video, documents, archives, etc. -- provides an added layer of intelligence. In addition, an enterprise needs to consider its ability to embed analytics into business processes to streamline actions. This might entail pairing together social media information with identity access information in order to form conceptual analytics around possible insider threats or to help form a decision on maintaining security clearances. HAVEn is an acronym for our industry-leading Big Data platform. -- A compilation of the Hadoop, Autonomy, Vertica and Enterprise security engines, which enable "n" (number) of applications, HP HAVEn is an open, scalable solution that provides the ability to manage, transform and analyze the full spectrum of structured, semi-structured and unstructured data."

ImageWare Systems

ImageWare Systems, Inc. (OTCQB: IWSY) (ImageWare), a leader in mobile and cloud-based, multi-modal biometric identity management solutions, has signed a three-year agreement with a major international retailer to provide its cloud-based, multi-modal biometric identity management product suite running on the Fujitsu Trusted S5 Cloud platform.

Under the agreement, ImageWare's IWS CloudID® product suite will use face, finger, iris and voice authentication; and run on top of the Fujitsu Trusted Cloud S5 platform, a fully configured, on-demand IT infrastructure, over the internet. The initial implementation will begin in the retailer's Mexico City locations in September, led by ImageWare's local subsidiary, ImageWare Systems de Mexico.

The biometric products will be licensed on a service-fee model, generating revenue from an initial license fee per person and a recurring monthly license fee thereafter. The company expects to begin generating revenues in the third quarter of 2014.

"Organizations face heavy burdens related to the creation and maintenance of digital identities, data accuracy and lack of integration across credentialing, human resources, and physical and logical access control," said Jim Miller, ImageWare's Chairman and CEO. "The IWS CloudID product -- which runs on top of the Fujitsu Trusted Cloud S5 platform and is delivered via Fujitsu's global network of secure data centers -- offers a cloud-based approach to all of these identity management concerns on a pay-as-you-go basis. We believe this agreement validates the steps we have taken to advance our cloud, SaaS and mobile offerings in the commercial and consumer marketplace."

ImageWare's agreement is in conjunction with its Fujitsu partnership to market its cloud-based, multi-modal biometric identity management offering delivered on the Fujitsu Global Cloud Platform (FGCP). The FGCP is one of the world's largest cloud platforms and features ImageWare's patented CloudID product suite, which is anchored by its Biometric Engine® 2.0.

"We are happy to partner with ImageWare on the implementation of IWS CloudID in Mexico City to help this international retailer enhance its loss prevention and employee credentialing," said Dave Berry, executive vice president, Infrastructure Services at Fujitsu America, Inc. "This implementation leverages the world-class cloud capabilities of Fujitsu to deliver the unique features of ImageWare's CloudID solution. Together, Fujitsu and ImageWare help customers securely identify and authenticate mission-critical operations, data and transaction information, and streamline retailer operations to deliver an enhanced shopping experience for customers."

Mr. Martin Heisig, Senior Vice President, Cloud and Infrastructure Delivery, SAP SE, said," The mega trends real-time platforms, big data, cloud, enterprise mobility as well as social media continue to enable completely new business scenarios. In a tectonic shift, we witness how our most innovative customers reinvent their business models and processes by using in-memory technology, like SAP HANA. The world goes real-time across entire industries and in the private space. As head of the HANA Enterprise Cloud delivery function, I foresee that more and more companies will move to the cloud, and that we will see a leap in software, infrastructure and platform as services. Customers have existing environments and want to add Cloud solutions to that. So, the reality for most of these companies is a hybrid Cloud environment. Or they move their enterprise systems into private Clouds, for example the HANA Enterprise Cloud. Security and process integration will continue to be big issues, and this is something at which SAP excels. Whatever the strategy, CIOs have to address both agility for the business and cost. The Cloud is a major factor in this equation."

Held on the 8 - 9 October 2014, Cyber Security EXPO will aim to provide CISOs and IT security staff the tools, new thinking and policies to meet the 21st century business cyber security challenge.

With over 300 exhibitors, this year's EXPO will feature a range of activities to bring us closer to the hacking community and its techniques. These include The SDN Conference, The Digital Transformation Summit and The Cyber Hack, a new live open source security lab which will expose visitors to demonstrations and discussions of the latest attacks and identified risks. Attendees will be able to share ideas with White Hat hackers and security gurus, amongst other Cyber Security EXPO speakers and industry specialists.
