Mr. Jason Waxman, General Manager, Cloud Infrastructure Group, Intel, told us, "With cloud infrastructure, servers are typically virtualized and shared across multiple lines of business or even among multiple organizations rather than dedicated to specific lines of business. When IT wants to link multiple cloud data centers together to gain efficiencies-the tools to secure this far-reaching infrastructure are still evolving. This lack of visibility - even in private clouds that are behind a company's firewall - have people concerned because they no longer have dedicated equipment for their line of business and instead are using shared, multi-tenant resources. This is why 61% of IT that were surveyed are concerned about having less control and visibility over these shared resources, even in a private cloud. Intel and McAfee are working to address these challenges and advance security solutions for cloud services."

Mr. Steve Dentinger, Director of Sales and Marketing, Keyscan Access Control Systems, told us, "Many end-users are guarding their capital expenditures and with staffing levels at an all time low employers are seeking ways to optimize staff productivity and stay focused on the core competencies of the business. Centrally Managed Access Control addresses may of the concerns of business owners today; they don't need an access control administrator, they don't need an onsite computer, they don't need to manage/maintain the access control database, they don't need to perform software updates, all this and if they desire, they can lock/unlock doors, run reports, add or delete access permissions all via an internet connection using their smartphone, iPad, or laptop without any special software.

Mr. Alfredo Herrera Hernandez, Chief Executive Officer, Cognitec Systems, told us, "Face recognition applications are moving from analyzing still images to recognizing faces in real-time via video cameras. These applications bring new challenges to recognition engines. Video cameras usually produce images with lower resolution. Inside buildings and venues, people move quickly and in groups, they rarely look directly into the camera, or their faces are hidden by hats, objects, and other people. Therefore, we are concentrating our algorithm development on low-quality facial images, with faces turned sideways, up and down, or partially hidden, and on the speed of our recognition engine. Our latest algorithm B6 shows significant improvements in these areas."

Toppenish School District Passing the Security Test

A key part of providing a high-quality educational experience is having facilities that are safe and secure. In the last decade schools and universities have carried out many steps to make facilities safer for students and staff members. Many of the improvements can be attributed to greater awareness of the need for security as well as the availability of new and improved tools to enhance campus safety.

Toppenish School District, located in the heart of the Yakima Valley in Washington state, had been experiencing key control issues and wanted to become more proactive about their approach to security. In the fall of 2007, Toppenish was introduced to the CyberLock system. Click here to read the full case study and learn how Toppenish increased security and accountability with the CyberLock system.

Wave Systems Corp. announced that it has signed a worldwide distribution agreement with Lenovo, the world's second-largest PC company, under which Lenovo will offer Wave's security solutions on a resale basis and through its channel partners.

"Wave is honored to continue and expand its relationship with Lenovo, one of the pre-eminent PC manufacturers in the world," said Steven Sprague, CEO of Wave Systems. "While Lenovo has long been one of our supporting OEMs -- for years procuring Wave software through our distribution partners -- this agreement gives Lenovo direct access to the Wave portfolio."

The increased emphasis on trusted computing is driving the security industry toward hardware-based security technologies that offer improved access control, encryption, and the early detection of malware. In particular, solid state Self-Encrypting Drives (SEDs) and Trusted Platform Module (TPM) security chips deliver stronger security for end-users and better protection for their critical data. With Wave's industry-leading solutions, Lenovo customers are empowered to secure endpoint data, protect data-in-motion and ensure that only trusted devices gain access to the enterprise network.

Mr. Joseph E. Hauhn, Chief Technology Officer and Vice President of Industry Relations, ADT Security Services North America, Chairman - Security Industry Association, told us, "2011 was a year of significant change and progress for the organization. The first annual Security Week was held in New York City in November and included the Securing New Ground conference - the first since SIA acquired SNG.

SIA Standards released Roadmap 2.0, a revised standards strategy that focuses on harmonization of industry standardization and specification initiatives. SIA Research launched the SNG Business Intelligence Service, an online portal providing SIA members and others with financial information on the Security Sector.

The Government Relations department made a significant impact by working to exempt manufacturers from proposed energy-efficiency legislation, which was signed by President Obama in January 2010. The legislation exempts electronic security companies from the Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA) of 2007. SIA was able to engage and convince the Department of Energy (DOE) and energy conservation stakeholders to provide an exemption from meeting a misguided energy efficiency requirement, ultimately resulting in considerable savings for SIA members."
