Mr. David Benini, VP of Marketing, Aware, told us, "Certisign is the largest certificate authority in Latin America, and is now introducing biometrics-as-services in Brazil through its new subsidiary, Certibio. Identity fraud prevention services are in high demand in Brazil and very synergistic with Certisign's current business. The new services aim to help Certibio customers reduce identity fraud by enabling them to use biometrics to thoroughly verify an applicant's identity information and ensure the integrity of their identity data. Biometrics collected in this process can then be used in the future to quickly verify the identities of individuals enrolled in the system. A wide variety of services and privileges can be better protected, including digital certificate issuance, healthcare, driver's licenses, telecom services, bank accounts, government services, and even registration of new companies. Aware has provided Certisign with the identity platform and much of the biometrics software used to build the sizable infrastructure needed to support thousands of endpoints, millions of users, and many millions of daily transactions."

HP Enterprise Services
Mr. George Romas, Technical Director, HP Enterprise Services, U.S. Public Sector, told us, "The current atmosphere of porous government networks and unprotected information is demanding attention from government leaders and CIOs. The idea of a cybersecurity sprint seems to have been a decent approach to jumpstarting efforts to improve security. However, this top-down approach does not adequately address the variety of issues that lead to compromise of government networks, including cyber terrorism, cybercrime, and hacktivism. The Cyber Sprint had four specific goals: for DHS to share priority threat-actor Techniques, Tactics and Procedures (TTPs); immediately patch critical vulnerabilities on a weekly basis; improve controls and governing policies on privileged users; accelerate implementation of multi-factor authentication. While these short-term measures are adequate for improved security, they are not nearly sufficient because software does not exist in a vacuum; you must also consider vulnerabilities of the overall design of the architecture and platform."

Mr. Phil Hartstein, President & CEO, Finjan Holdings, told us, "As we look ahead to the emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT), experts estimate that there will be 20-50 billion devices connected to the internet. All of these IoT devices are nothing more that miniature computers with internet access. More devices connected to the internet could lead to more ways for an intelligent hacker to gather data and personal information or even as a gateway to larger hacking prizes. Protecting the networks and devices that use these services and carry data will become increasingly vital since decision making in the evolving IoT world is often done without human intervention."

ImageWare Systems, Inc.
Extenua, a pioneering developer of enterprise security software that simplifies the use and access of ubiquitous cloud storage, and Imageware Systems, Inc. (OTC: IWSY), a leader in mobile and cloud-based, multi-modal biometric identity management solutions, announced that their strategic partnership has gone live on Amazon Web Services. Several U.S. federal agencies and American Systems Corporation have signed up as initial users of the joint product.
The partnership was formed to combine Extenua's award-winning Cloud2Drive™ storage product with ImageWare's patented mobile, multi-modal biometric GoVerifyID® product. Cloud2Drive client software coupled with GoVerifyID puts cloud storage to work with the virtual drive cluster file system, SAFE AITM. This includes the industry's most hardened encryption system and ImageWare's mobile application that provides out-of-band biometric authentication from any mobile device. Together, they create the first and only end-to-end secure cloud storage platform for office and mobile devices.
"Extenua's Cloud2Drive makes shared cloud storage secure, easily accessible and simple to deploy, regardless of the enterprise's existing cloud storage provider," said Steve Visconti, CEO of Extenua. "Security is a challenge for enterprises, both large and small, and many would like to take advantage of a productive and secure cloud storage solution for their mobile workforce. We now offer the best encryption techniques and multi-modal biometric identity management software to address this challenge and provide an unprecedented level of security to companies utilizing cloud storage, whether it is public, private, or hybrid."
"Cloud2Drive, with integrated out-of-band biometric identification, represents a new level of highly secure platforms required for today's cloud and on-premise storage networks," said Tom Suder, Mobilegov's President. "Combining Cloud2Drive and ImageWare GoVerifyID into a single platform plays an important role in countering threats to our cyber networks."
Cloud2Drive has been designed from the ground up to provide enterprises a controlled, secure and easy access solution for their cloud data by delivering critical, high-value features, including:
Cloud2Drive allows users to see and use their cloud storage like it's a local hard disk drive, for quick learnability. With an easy set up wizard, users can access cloud storage in minutes. Cloud2Drive runs on most Windows platforms, such as Android, iOS, Linux, and MAC OSX. It can also manage the complexities that arise with most back-end multi-cloud support structures offered from cloud vendors, such as Amazon S3, Microsoft Azure, Fujitsu GCP/LCP, IBM Softlayer, Rackspace, WebDAV, SFTP, and many others.
Administrators can aggregate multiple cloud services in the back-end and present them as one virtual drive or many virtual drives to the user's device. Aggregated cloud services offers maximum flexibility and can deliver more capacity, mirrored RAID 1 type high-availability and fault-tolerance, or as a migration tool from one cloud vendor to the next without interruption of service.
Cloud2Drive is 100% enterprise ready. It allows multiple users to access the same files and can prevent multiple users from accidentally corrupting a file if they access it at the same time.
Cloud2Drive uses the most accurate artificial intelligence in order to predict what files a user will need, then it caches and encrypts these files locally so the user can work offline.
Local encryption, independent of the cloud provider, is a crucial feature of strong security. The administrator controls the encryption key, so not even the cloud provider can access the organization's data. This control exceeds HIPAA and PCI compliance standards.
Cloud2Drive is very flexible and allows online access, anywhere, without the need for creating VPNs, gateways, or other bottlenecks that can be a single point of failure. This is perfect for public, private, and hybrid cloud solutions.
ImageWare's out-of-band biometric authentication product, GoVerifyID, delivers patented, advanced fraud-prevention capabilities to organizations. Biometric authentication, which includes voice, eye, signature, fingerprint and facial recognition, provides an additional layer of security and fraud Defense to enterprise cloud storage users.
"Cloud2Drive is already a 'best-in-class' cloud storage product, and the addition of GoVerifyID and multi modal biometrics has now made it even better by adding both security and ease of use features," said Jim Miller, chairman and CEO of ImageWare. "We are pleased to partner with Extenua to make biometric authentication available to the cloud storage market. Together, we provide the most advanced level of data security the industry has been looking for."

Route1 Inc. (TSX VENTURE: ROI), a leading provider of secure access technologies for the mobile workspace that protects businesses and government agencies and whose customers include the U.S. Department of Defense, the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Energy and the Government of Canada, provided an update on market drivers, its operations and business development activity.
Tony Busseri, Route1's CEO, said, "Q3 was a very successful quarter for Route1. We achieved a record number of subscribers, subscriber based revenue and average revenue per subscriber. We are continuing to increase our customer and user count among government agencies. Our success with some of the most security conscious organizations in the world is the ultimate seal of approval for our MobiKEY technology and is serving to attract customers in the broader corporate marketplace who are recognizing the business necessity of secure mobile access on demand."
Brian Brunetti, Route1 President, said, "We are seeing greater recognition of the importance of fully securing authentication for all enterprise users, especially as it pertains to mobile devices. According to a recent study from Intel Security, internal corporate employees account for 43% of data loss, and the majority of these breach incidents are accidental, stemming from improper access protocols. Additionally, Trend Micro recently found that 41% of all breaches are the result of lost or stolen mobile devices. Failing to secure sensitive data in a mobile environment can lead to serious legal consequences for enterprises, as evidenced by a U.S. District Court's recent green light on a class action lawsuit brought against Coca-Cola as a result of lost company laptops resulting in a breach of sensitive employee information. These and countless other incidents are forcing business leaders to realize that data security is not only a technology issue, but also a boardroom issue of the highest importance."
