Cisco, Panasonic Security, Gemalto, WAVE Systems, and Alpha Technologies Discuss Security Solutions in Interviews

RYE BROOK, NY--(Marketwire - Jul 12, 2011) - "Cisco takes a holistic approach to security for critical infrastructure protection, such as energy supply. This includes mitigating cyberattacks and responding to threats, as well controlling access to sites and monitoring energy facilities. Video surveillance is a key element of any security plan, since energy producers commonly face threats like vandalism and theft. Many companies install a Cisco Physical Security solution on an Internet Protocol-based network to monitor assets with real-time video surveillance, and this video can be integrated with physical access controls. Cisco solutions can also help companies centralize the management of their security systems, saving money and enabling faster incident responses."

These are among the highlights in our thought leadership interview with Ms. Laura Ipsen, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Cisco Connected Energy Group,

For the complete interview:


Mr. Bill Taylor, President, Panasonic System Networks Company of America, told us, "Our new i-PRO SmartHD network cameras feature high-definition (HD) image quality and exquisite color reproduction using lower bandwidth. The six new models also incorporate the Panasonic UniPhier System LSI chip (H.264 high-profile format) to combine high-definition video and real-time video streaming (up to 30 inches per second) at a lower data size. A new 1.3-megapixel MOS image sensor enables high sensitivity (0.3 lux in color) and lower power consumption. The camera series includes both IP box cameras and fixed IP domes, including models that are vandal-resistant and meet international IP66 standards for dust and moisture resistance. The i-PRO SmartHD cameras are capable of detecting faces automatically, even in high-contrast lighting situations, and when paired with our NV200 recorder, enable real-time face matching based on previously analyzed images."

Amidst media reports that the nation's largest defense contractor experienced a network intrusion last week allegedly involving the use of RSA SecurID® tokens, organizations using tokens should consider additional measures for safeguarding their information and securing their network infrastructure. Incorporating device identification as a second layer of defense can help to thwart future cyber attacks, according to officials at Wave Systems Corp.

"The Lockheed Martin breach has been a wake-up call for CSOs and CIOs, as this type of breach is a risk for any organization with the same vulnerability," commented Steven Sprague, CEO of Wave Systems, a leading provider of Trusted Computing solutions. "Security in today's IT infrastructure is more about layers than any single point of defense. We believe that organizations should add device identity as an independently managed layer for network access control, where only known devices -- those authorized by the organization -- are granted access to information and sensitive resources. This is device-based security."
