RYE BROOK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 07/18/13 -- ImageWare Systems, Inc. (OTCQB: IWSY) and Deutsche Telecom (OTCQX: DTEGY)
HP Enterprise Services
Mr. John Diamant, Distinguished Technologist, CISSP, CSSLP, HP Secure Product Development Strategist & U.S. Public Sector Application Security Strategist, HP Enterprise Services, U.S. Public Sector, Cybersecurity Solutions, told us, "It's certainly important to invest in traditional security (firewalls, infrastructure, anti-virus, and so forth), but clearly we see an underinvestment in application security as it typically represents less than 10% of security spends, directly resulting in a weak security link. Reactive security, such as security patching and security testing, remains important not only as quality controls, but also from the security standpoint. However, if enterprises continue to build their entire security quality model on just reactive measures, it should not come as a surprise that successful attacks will continue to dominate the news. This said, IT professionals must proactively require, architect and design security in up front. Building security in early combined with the commonly performed reactive security testing and patching as appropriate, can help enterprises get ahead of this dilemma."

ImageWare Systems, Inc. (OTCQB: IWSY) a leader in cloud identity management, and valued partner Emida, a leader in the global prepayment and value transfer market, entered into an agreement whereby ImageWare Systems will provide Emida its patented CloudID software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform, which will enable a fully-validated, feature-rich security solution that will run on top of Fujitsu's Global Cloud Platform (FGCP). Smartphone users, service providers and merchants will have unprecedented identity and value exchange protection for financial transactions.
"According to the Digital Journal, identity is stolen every three seconds in the United States and businesses alone lost $21 billion in 2012," said Jim Miller, chairman and CEO of ImageWare Systems. "Password protection can no longer protect us from identity theft, which is a major issue in mobile security. We are extremely pleased to partner with Emida Technologies and Fujitsu to offer one of, if not the first, services to deliver smartphone user identity, value transfer and purchase protection for service providers, merchants and consumers."
"Emida endeavors to consistently bring to market new and better value transfer products and services that benefit our customers around the world," said Shane Belovsky, CEO of Emida. "We work with best-in-class partners like ImageWare who soundly develop thought-leading patented technologies. We are confident that ImageWare's security management products, coupled with Emida's trusted innovations, will help to revolutionize the prepaid landscape."

Mr. Ryan Skipp, T-Systems International GMBH, Portfolio & Solution Design - IT, Applications & Portfolio Architecture, told us, "T-Systems as an Outsourcer has to provide base infrastructure services which meet the cost and quality expectations that a company transitioning to outsourced services would expect -- better than they as an end-user could produce, with better quality, and lower cost! In order to achieve that, T-Systems was one of the first Outsourcers to produce a 'Cloud' platform, based on highly shared leveraged infrastructure, and with a number of pre-defined applications on top of that. Today we have enhanced that infrastructure, and wrapped the Cloud functionality into it, all the way up to self-service (to application level) for our Private Cloud clients."

CyberLock and Intellectual Property Protection
CyberLock shared with us these interesting details regarding Intellectual property protection.
< < Intellectual property (IP) is a legal concept that refers to creations of the mind for which exclusive rights are recognized(1). In other words, it is an idea, an invention, a piece of art, a product design, a manufacturing process, or some other defined concept that a person or company has created. More often than not, this IP has significant value and needs to be protected and secured.
The physical location of where IP details are stored can vary greatly and often changes over time as concepts evolve. It can start in a notebook kept in a desk drawer. It can migrate to digital form and be stored on a workstation or server. Irrespective of how the intellectual property is stored, having security policies and procedures in place, including effective access control to the intellectual property, is critical.
Historically, no single solution has been available to safeguard such creations until the CyberLock family of mechatronic locks and smart keys came along.
Case in point, Gene Tools, LLC, based in Philomath, Oregon, turned to CyberLock to control access to their research facilities containing valuable intellectual proprietary and confidential information.
Gene Tools is involved in molecular biology and had a variety of security needs including preventing industrial espionage. In response, Gene Tools installed the CyberLock system to restrict and audit access to areas containing their intellectual property. "We need to be able to restrict who has access to each lab so that no one person can access all of the information," said James Summerton, President of Gene Tools. "With CyberLock, I have the ability to track who has accessed each lock so that if a molecule goes awry or if information has been tampered with we can get a report of who had accessed the information and when." > >

Mr. Bill Bozeman, CPP
President and CEO
Intelligent Access Systems - Premier Profile with Ron Oetjen
Bill Bozeman recently sat down with Ron Oetjen, President of Intelligent Access Systems, to gain some knowledge about his company as well as what they can offer their customers.
Bill Bozeman: Please tell us a little about Intelligent Access Systems.
Ron Oetjen: Intelligent Access Systems started in 2004 so we're a fairly young company, and we joined PSA in 2008. We're headquartered in Raleigh North Carolina, and focused primarily on three vertical markets which are Critical Infrastructure, Healthcare and Higher Education.
Bill Bozeman: How large a territory is Intelligent Access Systems able to cover?
Ron Oetjen: We have 8 offices on the east coast. We're focused on being able to provide prompt service to customers in the mid-Atlantic and south east regions of the US. Our physical offices include; Canton Ohio, Pittsburg Pennsylvania, Richmond Virginia, Raleigh North Carolina, Atlanta, Tampa, Jacksonville and Fort Lauderdale Florida. We think we're currently positioned pretty well to support customers in these regions, but our five year plan does call for some additional offices and some geographical territory expansion.
Bill Bozeman: Are those all physical building locations?
Ron Oetjen: They sure are. We have physical offices in each of those cities. We also have some remote technicians to cover some of the areas where you get a little far from our primary office.
Bill Bozeman: Can you share some of your top-tier clients with us?
We are heavily focused on a few vertical markets so the names may sound very similar. We're the electronic security partner for companies like Dominion Power, Duke energy, Liberty University, University of Pittsburg and Piedmont Healthcare, just to name a few.
