RYE BROOK, NY--(Marketwired - Nov 12, 2013) - ImageWare Systems, Inc. (
Fujitsu North America
Mr. Shawn McPherron, Cloud Marketing Manager, Fujitsu North America, told us, "Up until now, anytime a company wanted to embed biometric security into their systems and applications, they had to first buy licenses and hardware, complete a systems set-up, hire IT staff, and start on a lengthy development and deployment project. Our work with ImageWare enables us to deliver a SaaS-based solution -- or 'BioID as a Service.' Now, your BioID projects can be implemented in days, not months, and you only pay for what you use, eliminating the need for large capital investments up front. This is a game-changer for security enablement."

HP Enterprise Services
Mr. Ed Keegan, Director, Cybersecurity Strategies & Portfolio, U.S. Public Sector, HP Enterprise Services, told us, "CM represents a maturation of information technology. Over the past 15 to 20 years, various tools have been created to address individual problems, such as perimeter protection, endpoint protection, data loss prevention and so on. Once implemented, the tools are presumed to be doing the job. Therefore, original information assurance programs were written to ensure these tools were present -- not to ensure they were integrated and operating properly. CM represents the next logical step in this process -- automated, continuous auditing of the cyber environment to ensure proper configuration along with proactive monitoring for threats and vulnerabilities. This will ensure security compliance resulting in the prioritization and initiation of actions required to further secure the governments' information and systems."

Mr. Raj Samani, McAfee, EMEA CTO, told us, "Our dependency on services that are IP enabled is growing significantly and will continue to grow; from smart meters, power and water grids, train systems and every day devices such as units in cars, refrigerators and televisions. The need to correctly identify and authenticate when they connect to the Internet will be of critical importance, particularly if we consider devices related to health. In addition there is a need to ensure that they are capable of resisting cyber attack, as the impact of their unavailability could lead to serious economic effects."

CyberLock shared with us the following product news.
Grand Master Key
The CyberKey Grand Master is more than just your average master key. The Grand Master can perform multiple functions, depending on which software solution is in use.
In Enterprise the Grand Master can be programmed to perform any or all of the following:
- Open locks
- Program new locks
- Update locks
- Download lock audit trails
- Create emergency keys
In Professional the Grand Master can be programmed in one of two ways:
It can be configured to program, download, and update CyberLock cylinders and padlocks. This key configuration is ideal during the initial set up of a system. New locks can be quickly and easily added to the system simply by touching them with the Grand Master key.
It can be configured to create emergency keys and open locks. By configuring your Grand Master this way, you have a built-in contingency plan in case of emergency.
After initial setup of a system, it's a common practice for Professional level users to reprogram their Grand Master from the 'program, download, and update' mode to the 'emergency key' mode. Grand Master keys that are programmed as emergency keys should be stored in a secure location that can only be accessed by authorized personnel.
