(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) RYE BROOK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 05/03/13 --
Mr. Robert Sawyer, President & CEO, AMAG Technology, Inc., told us, "AMAG's Symmetry Security Management System provides a powerful integrated solution for organizations requiring automated security. Solutions are available for facilities of any size -- from small offices requiring just a few card readers or cameras to large corporations or high security facilities spread over multiple sites and countries. In addition to our Symmetry access control software and intelligent controllers, we offer Symmetry Video Management with Visualizer Encoders and Symmetry Intrusion Detection to provide our customers with a total solution. We just launched our brand NEW Symmetry SR Controller retrofit solution and our own network camera line, truly making AMAG a one stop shop for a total security solution. In addition, we integrate with best-in-breed technology partners in the industry to offer in-demand solutions to our customers."
SecurityStockWatch.com: For those end users that need to retrofit and upgrade their out-of-date security system, what is the solution AMAG brings to this particular issue
Bob Sawyer: AMAG just launched our brand new Symmetry Series Retrofit (SR) Controller to offer an affordable retrofit solution for customers who are facing product end of life scenarios or expensive upgrades. Our Symmetry SR Controller allows a customer to reuse their existing readers, cards and wiring infrastructure, saving them money and time during their retrofit upgrade. The controller is a form factor that utilizes a pluggable backplane architecture. Once upgraded the customer will enjoy all the benefits a Symmetry SMS has to offer: access control, IP video, IDS, unlimited expansion as needed and backward compatibility. The cost to install and maintain is a fraction of our competitors.
The company transports large containers filled with goods on behalf of their customers to locations all over the country. All parties in the supply chain were seeking to improve security and traceability of the delivered goods. They liked the fact that CyberLock enabled them to quickly and easily restrict access to the goods so that only approved employees could access the containers. However, they were interested in implementing location-based access control. Specifically, they wanted delivery drivers to only have access to the cargo bays when the trucks arrived at their scheduled delivery location.
A standard CyberLock deployment of keys and padlocks would restrict when the driver could access the truck cargo bay, but it doesn't restrict where they can access the cargo bays. Rather than attempt to introduce and integrate a complicated GPS based system, the client simply installed CyberPoints at each of its delivery locations. Then, they implemented the Temporary Activation feature of the CyberPoint. Now, when the drivers arrive at the delivery location, they must present their CyberKey to a CyberPoint which gives the key temporary authorization to access the cargo bay. In addition, the company was able to gather valuable information about how long each driver is at a delivery site by having the drivers touch the CyberPoint just before departing their locations.

Mr. Jim Miller, chairman and CEO of ImageWare, told us regarding ImageWare's recently announced deal with Fujitsu, "Fujitsu and ImageWare see the intersection of three fast moving trends, Mobile, Cloud and Biometrics, creating both a need and an opportunity. As more products, goods, services and data are stored in the Cloud and increasingly accessed through mobile devices security is a paramount concern. We live in a world where Identity theft happens every 3 seconds so security is no longer an 'option' it is a necessity. Fujitsu and ImageWare have come together to provide a solution to these needs.
"Our new CloudID™ product suite provides our clients with a full, end to end or modular identity management product suite for mobile or desktop. These products are provisioned via a web portal, anchored by the patented IWS Biometric Engine® and distributed on a very cost effective basis via the secure, world class global reach of the Fujitsu Global Cloud Platform to provide the first of its kind Cloud ID Software as a Service and Platform as a Service offering."
ImageWare Systems recently announced that "In March 2013, ImageWare entered into a contract with Fujitsu under which ImageWare will deploy a cloud-based, multi-modal biometric identity management offering that will be delivered on the Fujitsu Global Cloud Platform (FGCP). ImageWare's CloudID™ product suite, anchored by its patented, multi-modal Biometric Engine® (BE) 2.0, will be offered on the FGCP, which is expected to be one of the world's largest cloud platforms.
"As part of the agreement, ImageWare's products will be licensed on a service or transactional basis. The solution is expected to be introduced in North America in the second quarter of 2013, with plans to collaborate on a global expansion model in the near future, and will target large enterprise businesses and emerging applications. The agreement, which is in addition to ImageWare's previously announced three-year software license agreement with Fujitsu's NuVola Private Cloud Platform, is expected to significantly increase revenues while providing greater stability and forward-looking visibility."
"Our goal to establish a leadership position in biometric-based identity management for the cloud is becoming a reality," said Jim Miller, chairman and CEO of ImageWare. "By working with a leading IT innovator such as Fujitsu, ImageWare is able to quickly and efficiently enter the cloud-based arena and gain access to a broader base of clients in the commercial market. The launch of ImageWare's products on the FGCP is a significant step for us and we look forward to a potential worldwide deployment in the near future. Further, by licensing our products on a service or transactional basis, we expect to see a significant improvement in our revenue model and eliminate our historically lumpy sales that have been difficult to predict.
"ImageWare also continued to advance the development of its biometric-secured mobile transaction technology, building upon the wireless push technology and related patents it acquired from VOCEL in the second quarter of 2012. In December 2012, the company released the first demonstration models of this mobile technology to key potential corporate users and is currently in licensing discussions with several clients.
"Integrating wireless push technology with ImageWare's biometric solutions provides the missing security link facing a growing number of enterprises and government agencies using mobile platforms to transact business or interact with their users. The solution is applicable for healthcare, law enforcement, banking and retail, or any organization requiring highly-reliable and flexible identity verification of their mobile users."
Miller concluded: "Our strategy to diversify ImageWare's revenue stream and decrease our dependency upon larger government projects is beginning to gain traction. Although we will continue to pursue government contracts, our SaaS, mobile and cloud offerings in the commercial and consumer markets will provide us with a more stable, recurring revenue stream and a clearer picture of ImageWare's long-term opportunity."

Tiber Creek Partners
Mr. John M. Clerici, Principal, Tiber Creek Partners, LLC, told us, "There are several lessons to be learned from Boston. First and foremost is no matter how well prepared we are, we remain vulnerable. Second, while there has been proper focus on biological, chemical and nuclear preparedness, we continue to be attacked with traditional explosives -- from 9/11, to Madrid, to London to Bali, to Times Square, each time, the terrorists have used explosives to maximum impact. Through the leadership of former Senator Joe Lieberman raising awareness of this point, BARDA has proactively initiated efforts to address thermal burns and we should see procurements for skin replacement products in the near future to help mitigate impact of these events. With regard to Ricin, while Ricin is an unlikely weapon of mass destruction, the potential for bio-weapons to appear any time and be delivered through the mail just as they were in 2001 is very real. This is yet another reason why Congress must act to fully fund Project BioShield and ensure the tremendous work of BARDA/HHS over the last 11 years is not lost."

The SIA Government Summit brings together all facets of the security industry: executives, integrators, sales, marketing and government relations professionals. Panels are geared towards doing business with government and gaining a better understanding of the trends facing the industry, and the event provides one-on-one networking time with government and private sector insiders.
Dannel Patrick Malloy, the 88th Governor of the State of Connecticut, will be speaking at the Security Industry Association's (SIA) Government Summit.
In the wake of the Dec. 14, 2012 shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT, Gov. Malloy announced the formation of the Sandy Hook Advisory Commission, a 16-member commission tasked with making specific, actionable recommendations in the areas of school safety, mental health services and gun violence prevention. An interim report from the commission includes recommendations on minimum classroom security standards, threat/risk assessment, emergency response standards, identification, training, and re-funding of the Safe and Drug Free Schools program.
Gov. Malloy was appointed by President Barack Obama to serve a two-year term on the Council of Governors, a group of 10 state governors established in 2010 to address matters of national security, homeland defense, synchronization and integration of state and federal military activities in the United States and matters of mutual interest pertaining to the National Guard.
