"Applications modernization has become imperative as the maintenance of 'mature' applications has increased -- consuming a disproportionate share of resources. HP aligns critical applications and infrastructure with your overall modernization program. We can help you address risk, optimize benefits and prioritize the business needs of your applications. There are some very significant benefits that we can get through modernization. We've seen between 25 and 45 percent savings in a reduction in operations cost, development cost and overall portfolio size. The approach HP uses has been successfully executed with hundreds of modernization projects -- leveraging the Advise, Transform and Manage approach, which is backed up with a strong methodology, tools and the experience to execute and de-risk the approach. What's critical in this process is to start with a complete assessment. It's mandatory that you get the plan right and you know what your portfolio, know what your application environment is so you can execute successfully. We've seen clients fail by ineffectively planning this assessment phase. If you do nothing, your costs are going to continue to rise; executing a transformation plan is critical."

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 are 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.

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."

Smart Card Alliance presents the 8th Annual Conference
2015 Payments Summit
February 3-5 * Grand America Hotel * Salt Lake City
www.SCAPayments.com
Payments at a Higher Level

At the beginning of the year hundreds of industry executives will convene high in the Rocky Mountains at Payments Summit, the leading forum for secure payment technology, implementation, and markets. They come for high-level discussion on every leading transaction platform: EMV card payments, mobile payments, and transport payments. Over 600 came together last February in Salt Lake City. The next event will build on that success with an expanded program and an up-to-the minute conference agenda. Reserve your seat now at this gathering of leading smart card practitioners, solutions developers, end users, and suppliers.

The US is the world's largest payments ecosystem and the migration to EMV "the global transaction security standard" has now begun in earnest. Yet, for many banks, credit unions, issuers and merchants there is still a frustrating lack of clarity. At the same time, NFC-enabled payments are starting to take shape as card networks, telecoms and handset manufacturers target the market with mobile wallet solutions. But no ubiquitous model for all merchants and issuers has emerged. Finally, transit ridership is considered by many to be the killer app in expanding the use of open standards-based contactless bank card and mobile payments, and major transit operators have launched pilots nationwide.
