• AMAG Technology - A G4S Company, Kurt Takahashi, President

Kurt Takahashi, President of AMAG, said, “At first glance, access control systems may appear straightforward: built simply to lock and unlock a door. But delve deeper, and the administration of granting approval becomes extremely labor-intensive, and timely, in nature. Email traffic between security teams and site managers or business owners becomes overwhelming, as requests for approvals must be granted and access taken away manually, and precious time is wasted generating reports.While this in itself is problematic, it also leads to a rise in third-party compliance regulations. In the US, these can include everything from the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act for the healthcare sector to the North American Electric Reliability Corporation™ Critical Infrastructure Protection standards for utilities. So, how do you efficiently manage the way that physical identities are requesting approval, and ensure that it is carried out correctly?

Cisco, Marc Blackmer, Product Marketing Manager, Industry Solutions, Security Business Group
  Cisco Blog

Marc Blackmer, Product Marketing Manager, Industry Solutions, Security Business Group, Cisco, shared with us, “We at Cisco are fully committed to the IoT, and we believe the IoT must be secured for its promise to be realized. Securing the IoT is easier said than done, though. The first complication is that most IoT devices can’t protect themselves. To be fair, there are a number of reasons why they can’t, but from a cybersecurity perspective, those reasons don’t matter. A vulnerability is a vulnerability is a vulnerability. And these vulnerabilities create ample opportunities for an attacker to exploit those devices and gain access to your network.“  For our complete interview with Marc Blackmer please click here or here:


• Cyberinc, CEO, Samir Shah

Samir Shah, CEO, Cyberinc, said, “Browsers are our window to the World Wide Web, as we access various types of browsers on a variety of smart devices, umpteen times a day. The ubiquitous web browser - the strategically important application on corporate desktops, ironically, is also the only application on the desktop that regularly downloads and executes code from both trusted and untrusted networks. To borrow an analogy from airport security, the browser, by default, does not ‘scan’ or ‘frisk’ the code that enters and executes on the endpoint. As a result, browsers which keep the business connected to the global economy, have also become the preferred channel for cybercriminals to snake their way into our devices & systems.

Cyber hackers are exploiting the inherent vulnerabilities associated with browser code and plug-ins to launch devious cyber attacks, impacting business continuity and revenues, along with eroding consumer trust and loyalty. Multiple vulnerabilities detected across popular browsers such as Google Chrome, Thunderbird, SeaMonkey and Mozilla Firefox by cyber sleuths in India, all highlight security issues within the browser. A recent advisory issued by the Computer Emergency Response Team of India (CERT-IN) has listed key browser vulnerabilities: of how browsers could be exploited by a remote attacker to bypass certain security restrictions, disclose potentially sensitive information, gain escalated privileges, execute arbitrary code and cause denial of service condition on the affected system.

• Dell EMC, Graham Porter, Business Development Director EMEA, Surveillance and Security

“The Munich Airport system is a paradigm among airport security systems. It was designed around a single centralized and virtual data archiving system, accessible to anyone with permission anywhere on the airport network, and uses behavioral analytics to trigger alarm, camera management (zoom into the picture, follow a suspect, increase image resolution etc.) thereby reducing the number and scope of ‘People-Watching-Cameras’ and providing a massive saving for the airport operators. The system installed was placed by a Dell EMC partner in a public competitive RFP, so value as well as functional excellence was a determinant of the solution choice. We are given permission to reference this system and use it for show-&-tell visits and in our sales meetings with new and existing Customers. The airport has since expanded the system beyond the original scope and size of the original purchased hardware, emphasizing their commitment to our solution and their happiness with it.
