Cisco, ImageWare Systems, Videx CyberLock and Wave Systems Discuss Security Solutions in Thought Leadership Interviews


RYE BROOK, NY--(Marketwire - Oct 25, 2012) - ImageWare Systems (OTCQB: IWSY); Wave Systems (NASDAQ: WAVX)

Mrs. Ulrica de-Fort Menares, Director of Product Management for Cisco Medianet, told us, "An intelligent network must become more application-savvy. It must have the ability to determine the importance of a session based on its business value, and treat the session accordingly, end to end. One of the key medianet characteristics is its ability to become media-aware. Imagine this: The network can discover the type of endpoint and automatically configure the switch port for that type of device. This ability to plug and play any endpoint in the network is an example of tight integration between an intelligent network and an endpoint."

Mr. Jim Miller, Chairman and CEO, ImageWare Systems, said, "Los Angeles World Airport is the flagship deployment for our next generation biometric identity management and advanced credentialing platform. When this solution is fully implemented -- which we expect by Q4 2012 -- it will not only deliver a state of the art biometric-based airport credentialing solution, but will also ensure that the Los Angeles World Airports can adapt this credentialing solution to meet developing needs and evolving technology capabilities, thus "Future Proofing" their investment for the long term. Our BE 2.0 platform allows our clients to treat biometrics as a "plug-and-play" model while safeguarding the underlying data. Our recent selection in Ecuador to provide biometric credentials for the country's seaports is a replication of this implementation in the Spanish language."

ImageWare Systems, a leader in multimodal biometric security solutions, also recently introduced IWS CloudID, its next-generation cloud-ready suite of identity solutions.

IWS CloudID is a modular, service-orientated architecture-based software platform that allows the rapid development and deployment of highly secure, yet flexible identity solutions, from the creation and management of secure credentials, including IDs, passports, driver's licenses, smart cards, and access control credentials, to integrated mug shots, fingerprint livescan, and investigative capabilities. CloudID was designed to adapt to evolving customer requirements and emerging market demands, thereby delivering a "future proof" identity management solution.

The IWS CloudID Product Suite consists of three independent, yet tightly integrated software layers which include client and server software modules that can be selected and configured to create customized solutions and reusable identity frameworks. These layers are the IWS CloudID Server Platform, IWS CloudID Business Services and IWS CloudID Applications. For more information:

Videx recently released a new version of the CyberKey smart key. The CyberKey II looks nearly identical to the current RXD CyberKey and features a micro USB port that enables users to recharge the key from a computer, car charger, or any other compatible USB device. In addition, the CyberKey II may be updated directly from a computer without the need for a CyberLock communication device.

Additional features include:

  • Memory for storage of over 10,000 access events
  • Can download audit trails from as many as 50 locks
  • Has both LEDs and a beeper, for visual and audio feedback

The CyberKey II recently won the "New Product Facility" award at the Worship Facilities Conference & Expo (WFX) in Atlanta. Jim McGowan comments, "The award has great meaning for us and we appreciate all the time and effort that went into the selection process. We are honored that the panel of judges recognized the CyberKey II as an innovative solution benefiting the house of worship market."

Wave Systems Corp. (NASDAQ: WAVX) is delivering secured, verified access to networks leveraging Microsoft DirectAccess by protecting credentials in hardware. This functionality allows organizations running Windows 7 (and soon Windows 8) to enable Microsoft's DirectAccess in place of a conventional virtual private network -- and to do so without fear of credential theft. DirectAccess eliminates the need for users to input their name and password to connect to the network -- so it becomes much harder to steal them.

Microsoft is making modern access control one of the key pillars in its soon-to-be-released Windows 8 operating system, with provisions that allow for machine and user ID hardware-protected certificates for user authentication for remote access and strong machine network authentication.

But enterprises don't have to wait for Windows 8 deployment -- Wave is delivering modern access control today on Windows 7 as well, playing a central role in providing a better user experience and authenticated access to networks that identify devices issued by the organization.

"DirectAccess and securing credentials within the TPM lay the groundwork for a new enterprise security model based on device identity," said Wave CEO Steven Sprague. "One of the biggest advantages from a security standpoint is that the user can only access the network from a device authorized by the company, because now IT can control which machines are allowed network access."

Corporate security that makes device ID the cornerstone of its policy puts the responsibility for security out of the hands of the user and into the hands of the enterprise.

"The user has no knowledge of device authentication credentials, and that effectively eliminates the problem of phishing or social engineering hacks that trick the user into inputting access information," Mr. Sprague continued. "With Wave, customers have the full support for machines running Windows 7, and soon Windows 8, to modernize their network architecture to one based on device identity."

Through the use of Wave's ERAS, IT can deploy domain credentials to the Trusted Platform Module (TPM), a security chip on the motherboard of most PCs. This step simplifies the deployment process, and adds security for the credential, as TPM-secured credentials are immune to many well-known attacks.

In addition to offering greater security for DirectAccess, ERAS help protect credentials for networks running Cisco or Juniper network remote access solutions.

The latest version of ERAS (2.9) is set for release later this quarter. ERAS 2.9 supports Windows 7 and will support Windows 8.

Javits Center

"After consulting with ISC attendees, exhibitors, supporters, and Associations to determine what is working and what needs improvement, the consensus was to have the Northeast's largest annual gathering of security professionals go back to its roots. As a result, ISC Solutions will again be known and run as ISC East. Over and over, people familiar with the show told us that 'We don't care what you name it, we call it ISC East,'" emphasizes Ed Several, senior vice president, ISC Events. "They want it to be the East Coast version of ISC West for all segments of the security channel. They want a place where they can network with peers, meet their customers, see new products, and get relevant education to improve their skills. Therefore, we will be adding the best of ISC West along with some distinctly Northeast features to ISC East."

"The exhibition, to be held October 30-31, 2012, at the Javits Center will feature over 300 exhibitors showcasing new products, technologies and services to a wide range of security professionals. For dealers, installers, integrators, and specifiers, the Event will focus on retro-fitting and updating to increase profits. For end users, achieving business optimization is the main theme.
