Mr. Jason Hart, CEO, Identiv, told us, "Identiv's uTrust products enable business executives and security leaders to make the paradigm shift from patchworked identity systems to a unified, simple, efficient identity solution that delivers higher security and resistance to obsolescence, for both premises and information access. Our uTrust products are unique in the marketplace as they are designed, tested, and supported to work together. No matter where a customer starts, Identiv provides the confidence that they can build a complete system in which everything works together. Identiv's idOnDemand service is a turn-key cloud-based platform that makes establishing a trusted ecosystem across all lines of business, geographic locations, devices, and people simple and convenient. Central to the idOnDemand service is the certification authority that issues PKI certificates -- the standard for secure communications through the internet, banks, and high-security cryptographic applications within and outside the U.S. government for the last 20 years. By combining PKI with purpose-built secure hardware such as a smart card, USB token, or other devices, like mobile, the certificate's private key is not only protected in a high state of security, but is also portable across devices and services, enabling pervasive use of strong identity whenever (and wherever) required."

ImageWare Systems, Inc.

ImageWare Will Combine Technologies with TransUnion to Offer Biometric Authentication for Fraud Prevention

ImageWare Systems, Inc. (OTCQB: IWSY) (ImageWare), a leader in mobile and cloud-based, multi-modal biometric identity management solutions, recently announced a new alliance with TransUnion. The alliance integrates TransUnion's ID Manager solution with ImageWare's out-of-band biometric authentication product, GoVerifyID™, allowing ImageWare to deliver advanced fraud-prevention capabilities to organizations. The relationship also helps accelerate consumer adoption of biometric authentication.

Biometric authentications, which include voice, eye, signature, fingerprint and facial recognition, provide an additional layer of fraud defense to TransUnion's and ImageWare's customers. Through the relationship, consumer identities will be thoroughly analyzed using both biometric signatures and the TransUnion ID Manager platform. Both TransUnion and ImageWare customers will benefit from new seamless access to these fraud prevention tools.

"In the past 12 months, the scope and frequency of data breaches have placed a growing burden on U.S. consumers who are often frustrated with inadequate, excessive or ineffective responses to compromised data," said Jeff Brown, vice president of identity risk solutions at TransUnion. "Through our relationship with ImageWare, we can offer customers an added level of fraud defense that helps them quickly establish a trusted relationship with consumers."

Identity verification tools help organizations verify and ensure the correct customer is accessing information or accounts, which reduces risk exposure and potential loss. With biometric authentications, organizations can ensure they are integrating advanced fraud-prevention capabilities, while gaining additional consumer trust in their security procedures.

"Biometrics is the key to effective and seamless security in mobile channels," said Jim Miller, chairman and CEO of ImageWare. "TransUnion has a record of innovation in fraud solutions for businesses and consumers. This integration with the TransUnion ID Manager platform allows us to quickly enroll users while enhancing the security of a rapidly-growing technology to the benefit of both of our customers."

ImageWare Systems Debuts Biometrics-as-a-Service Identity Authentication Solution Combined With FUJITSU Retail Solution Market Place

GoVerifyID™ software application will be demonstrated within an omni-channel workflow transacting with the FUJITSU Retail Solution Market Place. The demo, with GoVerifyID identity authentication running on the FUJITSU Cloud IaaS Trusted Public S5, will be shown at next week's Fujitsu Forum in Munich, Germany.

FUJITSU Retail Solution Market Place is an omni-channel Point of Service (PoS) application that allows retailers to significantly simplify and enhance the customer shopping experience and increase revenue while reducing IT costs. FUJITSU Market Place achieves this by supporting enterprise-wide transaction and order fulfillment to deliver a consistent and seamless buying experience to customers across traditional point of service, online and mobile channels.

FUJITSU Market Place breaks down the barrier between orders and in-store shopping by combining both in a single transaction. For customers, this means consistent pricing, promotions and customer experience whether online, in-store or using a mobile device. Combined with the IWS Identity Authentication Solution, retailers and customers can be more secure in their transaction processing, ensuring that the person attempting the transaction has been authenticated and verified. The result is a lower risk of transaction fraud, whether online or in a physical retail store.

"We are very pleased to demonstrate ImageWare Systems' Biometrics-as-a-Service Identity Authentication Solution at Fujitsu Forum in Munich," stated Rowan Cape, director of Global Retail Software Solutions at Fujitsu America, Inc. "Adding IWS's fast and powerful biometric authentication to transaction processing elevates the level of trust that can be established between retailers and their customers, minimizing the overall risk of fraud from the entire retail operation."

The IWS GoVerifyID identity authentication solution, in addition to being algorithm and hardware agnostic, enables plug-n-play technology and can be deployed globally as an enterprise end-to-end or modular solution that can be implemented in a matter of hours rather than days or weeks. GoVerifyID, which is a part of the GoCloudID platform that includes a software development kit (SDK), enables rapid integration into existing company programs and applications.

"Through our partnership with Fujitsu and their global omni-channel commerce solution, FUJITSU Market Place, the demonstration shows we can bring convenience and biometric-based security to retailing and 'e-tailing' via the omni-channel functions that Fujitsu Market Place addresses, improving customer service and overall enterprise efficiency," says Jim Miller, Chairman and CEO of ImageWare.

"Attackers are better funded and more motivated today than they were in decades past. It used to be that the primary motivation of attackers was fame or just to prove that they could successfully exploit a vulnerability. Today, a large percentage of attacks are motivated by identity theft, credit card theft, industrial espionage, cyber warfare or "hactivism", and some are Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs). In these cases, the motivation is significant financial, political or strategic gain and, as a result, the attackers are often well funded and more sophisticated."

Elite Interactive Solutions

Mr. Aria Kozak, President and Chief Executive Officer, Elite Interactive Solutions, Inc., told us, "Many people in the industry know me as the Father of Remote Guarding. This is a term I was using twenty years ago. Today, this refers to providing security of any property, anywhere in the country by remote, command center based agents. But Elite has taken this idea and expanded it beyond what anyone else, to my knowledge is doing. We do this through a proprietary combination of staffing, guided processes, client-facility based systems and our world-class Security Operations Command Center (our SOCC). The client's system design is based on our detailed site review and forensic analysis. The resulting specifications include video cameras converted by military grade software into undercover digital guards that monitor and protect the property's perimeter and further defined interiors. Once this system is installed, we connect the site to the SOCC via the internet to support operation by highly trained Command Center agents. Armed with our command center's state-of-the-art systems and tools, Elites agents remotely secure any facility, anywhere in the United States."
