    DogTrekker.com - California's most-visited dog-travel site and mobile app - adds a "California Coastal Beaches" section in response to user demand.

    San Rafael, California (PRWEB) July 31, 2017

    Where do California dog owners most want to take their dogs? To the beach.

    That’s according to DogTrekker.com, the state’s most-visited dog-travel-focused website that, in response to user demand, recently added a “California Coastal Beaches” section to its website and mobile app.

    “Over a million dog-crazy Californians have used DogTrekker.com to plan their trips with their best friends. More than anything else, they want to know where to find and what’s at the state’s best dog-friendly beaches,” said DogTrekker.com’s Co-founder Dave Kendrick.

    “Californians want to take their best friends to the beach, regardless of whether the dogs are water dogs.” he continued.

    Among the site’s page views, ‘Beaches’ has consistently been DogTrekker.com’s most requested activity, with hundreds of thousands of page views generated each year for “beaches” and “coast.”

    DogTrekker.com saw extraordinary interest in beaches generated by its newsletter beach issues. This year’s “Dogs on the Water” newsletter issue was no exception as “nearly a third of our readers opened it and thousands clicked through to the website for more information. That literally blew us out of the water,” said Kendrick.

    “The crazy thing is, it doesn’t matter where the beach is. California dog owners read beach stories even if the beach is at the other end of the state. That’s how doggone nuts Californians are about taking their dogs to the beach.”

    DogTrekker.com’s new “California Coastal Beach Destinations” section is divided into four, “easily researched” regions: North Coast, San Francisco Bay Area, Central Coast and Southern California. Other sections on DogTrekker.com include: lodging, wineries, dining, dog parks, parks, hikes, water activities, attractions, local services and emergency services.

    Within the “Beaches” section, integrated roll-over pop-ups appear when users scroll over coastal counties and “Paw-of-Approval” partner destinations, with links to beach stories. Readers get a map view and GPS directions to dog-friendly beaches and whether the beach is on-leash or off-leash, as well.

    About DogTrekker.com: Founded in 2011 by Dave and Roxanne Kendrick, the award-winning DogTrekker.com provides those traveling with dogs in California with localized, current and engaging dog-friendly information on such subjects as: lodging, wineries, dining, dog parks, parks, hikes, beaches, water activities, attractions, local services and emergency services.

    ATS Digital Services has met all thirty-nine compliance parameters required for AppEsteem’s call center certification.

    Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) July 31, 2017

    ATS Digital Services, also known as Advanced Tech Support (ATS), announced today an industry milestone: they are the first call center certified by AppEsteem Corporation to provide premium support services to consumer software applications.

    Founded by a team of Microsoft cybersecurity veterans, AppEsteem certifies apps and related services. ATS Digital Services has met all thirty-nine compliance parameters required for AppEsteem’s call center certification.

    Since 2011, ATS has provided technical support services to hundreds of thousands of customers both over the telephone and through remote access screen sharing technologies.

    “Comprehensive, consumer-focused compliance is the backbone of our organization,” said Robert Deignan, ATS Digital Services’ Chief Executive Officer. “When we started the review process in January, we discovered that we already met most of AppEsteem’s requirements. From there, it was a simple decision to commit ourselves, get certified, and send a signal to software vendors, security companies, and regulators that we operate at the very highest level when it comes to consumer-friendly operations and practices.”

    AppEsteem’s call center requirements are based on input from government regulators, law enforcement, security companies, the software industry, call centers, and consumer groups. Along with AppEsteem’s other requirements, they are designed to protect consumers while also helping to build a more sustainable, healthy software downloading industry.

    “Verification by an organization with the credentials of AppEsteem is the chief reason we chose to get certified,” said Paul Herdsman, ATS Digital Services’ Chief Operating Officer. “We are thrilled to be associated with AppEsteem and look forward to making continued progress with their guidance and support.”

    For too long, unscrupulous call centers have scared, over-sold, and exploited consumers who contact them for help with their computer software.

    “We’re delighted to have ATS on board,” said Dennis Batchelder, AppEsteem’s President. “Thousands of consumers are abused by bad call centers. Now that we have our first certified call center available, we can start identifying, and hopefully shutting down, the bad ones.”

    AppEsteem started certifying software apps late last year, and plans to cover the entire software distribution supply chain, including payment processors, and advertising networks. ATS Digital Services is AppEsteem’s first certified call center, and a proud member of AppEsteem’s Better World Network.

    Organizations continue to record low scores in open enrollment preparation and management

    New York, NY (PRWEB) July 31, 2017

    Employee Benefit Adviser’s Open Enrollment Readiness Benchmark (OERB) score fell in May, reaching the lowest level since its introduction in January. The three-point decline in the Benchmark’s composite score demonstrates organizations’ continuing lack of preparation for their fast-approaching employee benefit sign-up periods.

    The open enrollment period, typically a fall event for companies in the United States, represents one of the most important opportunities an employer has to demonstrate the investment they have made in their employees and to engage employees in important activities such as health and wellness management and retirement planning.

    The composite OERB score for organizations with benefit start dates in the first quarter, representing nearly 70% of all employers, was just 36 — down from 39 in April and 43 in January.

    In addition, the number of activity-related red flags, indicating a serious lack of preparedness, rose from 12 to 13. One of the biggest declines was in the open enrollment management phase – which includes preparing employees for enrollment and boosting engagement. In this case, the overall score fell seven points from 29 in the previous month to 22. In fact, readiness scores for open enrollment management activities accounted for all but one of the six lowest numbers across the 26 activities tracked by the OERB.

    “With open enrollment for many employers set to begin in only a few months, these low numbers are surprising,” said John McCormick, Editorial Director of SourceMedia’s Employee Benefits group, which includes EBA and Employee Benefit News. “As a group, employers have a lot of ground to make up before their employee benefit sign-up periods.”

    The Open Enrollment Readiness Benchmark is a data-based performance benchmark that gauges how prepared employers are for their annual employee benefits enrollment periods. The benchmark is sponsored by ADP. To produce the results, SourceMedia Research and EBA each month survey more than 400 pre-screened HR and benefits executives at organizations of various sizes and across multiple industries. These professionals are asked to rate their completion levels for 26 activities — from selecting health plans to reviewing enrollment metrics — that take place during the four critical phases of open enrollment: benefit plan design, employee preparation, employee enrollment and post-enrollment analysis. Scores range from a low of 1 to a high of 100 and reflect the degree to which an employer considers itself prepared for a particular activity. The activity scores are then averaged to determine scores for each of the four phases and an overall readiness score. A complete analysis of the most recent OERB data is available here.

    Senior Vice President of EagleView OnSite Solutions to guide technology innovations in property insurance.

    Bothell, WA (PRWEB) July 31, 2017

    EagleView Technologies (“EagleView®”), the leading provider of aerial imagery and data analytics for government, insurance and commercial sectors, has promoted Kenneth Cook, CPCU, CLU, ChFC, to Senior Vice President of EagleView® OnSite™ Solutions. In this role, Cook will lead field services, while collaborating with engineering and product teams to strategically develop advanced solutions for claims and underwriting professionals in the property insurance space. Previously VP of Client Relations at EagleView, Cook has managed functions supporting major EagleView clients which include all major property and casualty insurance carriers.

    Cook graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with his master’s degree in Business Administration. He has since obtained the designation of Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter (CPCU), a title conferred by The Institutes on those who are considered subject matter experts in property-casualty insurance and risk management. Cook has also earned the titles of Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU) for his expertise in underwriting, and Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC) for his skills in financial planning. Having worked in the insurance industry for 26 years, holding positions with insurance carriers such as State Farm Insurance and Farm Bureau Financial Services, Cook has vast experience in both underwriting and claims management, making him a natural fit to head the EagleView OnSite Solutions team.

    “The EagleView team has many members with extensive work experience in the industries we serve. Those of us from the insurance industry understand both the complexities and nuances of the claim process, along with the timeless expectation of exceptional customer service, communication and professionalism,” stated Cook. “I’m excited to lead a division that was built to serve as a best-in-class extension of the carriers we represent.”

    EagleView OnSite Solutions, which includes field services supported by a broad network of professional drone operators, independent adjusters, property inspectors and restoration contractors, is dedicated to assisting property claims adjusters in rapidly settling claims without having to leave the office. Once a claim is submitted to the insurance carrier, field service representatives are dispatched to a property to capture detailed, high-resolution imagery. This solution uniquely utilizes both pre- and post-loss high-resolution imagery, yielding precise roof and property measurements and weather data, along with machine learning applications to provide damage detection both before and after the claim event, giving an adjuster the most comprehensive overview of a reported property loss.

    “The timing of this promotion aligns perfectly with the emergence of our new technologies,” stated Rishi Daga, EagleView President. “After working at EagleView for almost four years, Ken knows our business as well as the complexity of the insurance sector inside and out.”

    “We’re on the verge of the most innovative technology in history for both claims and underwriting, and virtual claim handling, further enabled by EagleView OnSite, is an example of just that,” Daga continued. “We are uniquely positioned to do even more as we refine our ability to combine imagery and data for use in risk evaluation, underwriting pre-fill, pricing sophistication and claim settlement.”    

    Cook will transition from his current role as VP of Client Relations and will begin his new role as SVP of EagleView OnSite Solutions immediately.

    New version makes it easier to find relevant assets and templates, and strengthens governance.

    Walnut Creek, CA (PRWEB) July 31, 2017

    BrandWizard, the global leader in digital brand management, announces a release that makes its cloud-based BrandCenter product suite significantly more powerful. The updated BrandCenter incorporates cutting-edge search, filter, and sort functionality that make the search for assets and templates quicker and more intuitive. As a result, users of the product suite are more productive. The update also delivers enhanced reporting and administrative controls that allow administrators and brand managers to track and manage how the assets and product suite are being used, as well as the level of access each user has.

    Advanced Search Capabilities

    BrandCenter now offers the latest search functionality built on the Solr search engine, the same search engine used by websites like Zappos and AOL. Every new digital asset is automatically indexed and tagged, allowing for faster search and greater accuracy of search results. The powerful auto-suggest functionality and cross-product search capability allow users to search seamlessly across both assets and guidelines.

    More Robust Filtering and Sorting

    In addition to our intuitive, pre-defined filters, the brand team can define business-specific filters. Sorting goes beyond just date added or alphabetical, to include BrandWizard’s out-of-the-box tags such as dimensions, colors, and even metrics from our analytics engine such as ‘most downloaded’ or ‘most viewed’ assets.

    These additional filter and sort dimensions, paired with the advanced search capabilities, enables users to sift through thousands of digital assets to find exactly what they need, quickly.

    Insights and Data Visualization

    The analytics engine, complemented by data visualization tools, provide detailed reports across all modules in the product suite. The metrics allow users to accurately analyze data like asset usage, adoption, and preferred file formats, from an aggregated perspective all the way down to the individual user or asset level. These metrics offer insight that users, brand managers, and administrators can analyze to shape future activity and decisions.

    Improved Administrative Controls

    The latest release includes intuitive UI and UX that facilitate the ramp-up of admin teams across a company's offices around the world. It also includes workflows that improve governance by ensuring that only assets with valid licenses, or assets that have not exceeded the specified campaign expiration date, are active. Finally, it gives administrators greater control over defining and managing user access.

    “With the significant growth and diversification of companies, M&A activity, and the expansion across geographies, the sheer volume of digital brand assets in each company’s portfolio has grown exponentially,” said BrandWizard CEO Vineet Singh. “Given the corresponding increase in search and administrative complexity, companies need particularly powerful systems and processes if they are to make the most of their brand assets and grow brand equity. That is why we are excited to announce these enhancements to our brand management platform.”

    With its convenient plug-and-pour keg, BrewQube users can access fresh craft beer on tap from anywhere

    Fort Collins, CO (PRWEB) July 31, 2017

    BrewQube is a compact and convenient way to bring craft beer home or on the go. Expertly designed, the smart-kegerator system includes a portable vessel - essentially, a large-volume growler - that allows users to have fresh craft beer on-hand at all times. The BrewQube vessel is paired with a mobile connection kit that can be purchased separately from the full draft system for only $200. BrewQube is currently live on Kickstarter, raising funds in order to bring the product to life. So far, the campaign has raised over $18,509 from more than 40 backers.

    The BrewQube can store up to 288 fluid ounces and offers the versatility to be completely portable or countertop-friendly. Featuring a simple plug-and-pour technology, the BrewQube will pour fresh craft beer for up to a month without degradation and can be filled directly from the tap like a growler. The entire BrewQube draft system is roughly the size of a microwave and can be stored elegantly on the countertop below upper cabinets. The portable keg itself is designed to maximize fluid volume, minimize space occupancy, and is as lightweight as 4.5lbs empty.

    BrewQube’s ergonomic handles allow for easy transport, stacking and storage; perfect for travel, tailgating, camping and beyond. Customers can fill up the BrewQube at their favorite brewery and tote to tailgate the big game, BBQs, concerts and more with a shareable size equivalent to a 24-pack of cans. Users don’t have to worry about damaging their BrewQube vessel due to its sturdy HDPE construction and ability to withstand almost any bump, nick, or drop thrown its way.

    The BrewQube vessel can be stowed away and kept cold in most standard-sized coolers for ultimate convenience. When docked inside the brushed stainless steel countertop draft system, users can customize temperature and CO2 pressure, monitor the number of pours and current gas level remaining. The draft system is also WiFi equipped, enabling users to create alerts and monitor these stats from the web.

    The BrewQube To-Go setup includes a BrewQube vessel and mobile connection kit, and is currently available for $200 via their Kickstarter campaign. This is a 33% discount from the future retail price of $299. To pre-order BrewQube now, visit bit.ly/brewqube.

    About BrewQube

    The BrewQube team is comprised of three entrepreneurs who are passionate about people and craft beer. Headquartered in Colorado (the state that ranks No. 2 in the total number of craft breweries), the BrewQube team has worked diligently to create a product that lives up to the high standards of the craft beer industry.

    Upgraded WeVideo Video Editing Tools Support New IWitness Video Activities for Student Digital Storytellers with Expanded Creative Features and Accelerated Performance.

    Menlo Park, California (PRWEB) July 31, 2017

    WeVideo today announced that USC Shoah Foundation - The Institute for Visual History and Education has enhanced the WeVideo video storytelling tools available to students and teachers through the Institute’s IWitness digital education site (http://iwitness.usc.edu). For more than five years, WeVideo’s cloud-based video-editing platform has been an important part of IWitness, which uses audio-video testimonies—personal stories—from survivors and witnesses of genocide to teach students worldwide the importance of compassion and in bringing about positive societal change. Beginning August 1, the IWitness site will offer students the latest feature-rich HTML5-based version of WeVideo.

    Instilling Change through Engaging Activity

    The goal of IWitness is to motivate students to act responsibly and ultimately to help them uphold important values. These include justice, equality, diversity, tolerance and how best to counter attitudes and acts of hatred. IWitness provides online access to more than 2,000 full life histories, testimonies of survivors and witnesses to the Holocaust and other genocides for guided exploration. IWitness brings the human stories of the Institute's Visual History Archive to secondary school teachers and their students via engaging multimedia-learning activities. Designed to be participatory, academic and student-driven, IWitness addresses education standards from the Common Core State Standards Initiative (United States) and the International Society for Technology in Education, among others.

    WeVideo online video-editing tools are tightly integrated into 21 separate IWitness video activities that challenge students to research and produce public service announcements, video essays, or short films. WeVideo is also used by participants in the annual IWitness Video Challenge that asks middle and high school students in the United States and Canada to submit short videos to show how they were inspired by the testimony to make positive choices and create value in their local community. A group of students from the Walter Payton College Preparatory High School in the Chicago Public School District were recently announced as first place winners of the 2017 IWitness Video Challenge.

    Striving to Provide Access to All

    Concurrent with the deployment of the updated WeVideo platform, IWitness unveiled an updated array of multimedia activities from 20-minute skill-building mini lessons to project-based activities built around a continuously growing library of over 500 short, curated clips of testimony from the Institute’s Visual History Archive®. These clips complement curriculum in many subjects, such as history, social studies, English language arts, foreign language, government, and character education.

    Directly integrating the latest, HTML5-based version of WeVideo within the IWitness site gives students access to advanced video editing features that are easy to learn. WeVideo’s web-based application works on any browser and provides users with a massive creative palette for video editing, motion graphics, advanced green screen, special effects, screen capture, speed control and more. It also means that teachers do not have to contend with acquiring, installing or maintaining additional software in order to have students participate.

    “With its ease of use and nothing to install, WeVideo lets students get right to work on their projects,” said USC Shoah Foundation Director of Education, Dr. Claudia Wiedeman. “It is simple, intuitive and enables students to focus on telling their story rather than overcoming technical challenges. Integrating WeVideo within the IWitness website makes it easy for anyone to be a participant by becoming an active storyteller using modern, video-making techniques. WeVideo complements the goals of IWitness, which are to engage students with personal testimony that connects them with the past and motivates them to build a better future.”

    WeVideo CEO Krishna Menon said, “USC Shoah Foundation makes incredible use of digital storytelling and WeVideo is very proud to be a valued partner. As a company with a strong heritage in education and a firm belief in the power of video to inspire students, we think USC Shoah Foundation and its IWitness educational platform are progressive, both in terms of their unparalleled educational mission and their effective use of technology to connect with the public in general, and students in particular.”

    IrisVision, a new product on the market, is a wearable headset device that allows those with low vision to see the world like they've never seen it before. For millions, this means bringing the once blurry, lost details of life, back into focus.

    Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) July 31, 2017

    Better vision may be within your reach! New technology from IrisVision is being called the most effective and affordable solution for Macular Degeneration, Retinitis Pigmentosa, Glaucoma, and other eye diseases.

    IrisVision is a wearable headset device that allows those with low vision to see the world like they've never seen it before. For millions, this means bringing the once blurry, lost details of life, back into focus.

    Lesa Kretschmer, Founder and CEO of Florida Vision Technology, has been testing the new device and is recommending it to many of her clients with low vision. Florida Vision Technology has the IrisVision on display for clients to try on and experience first-hand.

    IrisVision worked with tech powerhouse Samsung to create the headset that boasts a 16 MP camera, a 70° field of view, and a screen that displays 10X more pixels per inch than your HD TV. The headset offers magnification where it’s needed while maintaining a broad field of view.

    Kretschmer adds, “It’s super easy to use. IrisVision did a great job keeping the design simple with just a few buttons and a finger-swipe for zooming in and out. Users can easily toggle between the live mode and the reading mode with the push of a button.”

    “What I especially like about this device, is the flexibility to be able to see at different distances. The user can be reading a book up close, then look across the room at family members or a show on TV. The camera focuses automatically,” says Kretschmer.

    Kretschmer believes that the IrisVision can empower many to enjoy the activities they once loved. “Can you imagine being able to see your children’s or grandchildren’s faces again? Or going to the movies with friends and family? Seeing a play? Or taking a trip to the art museum?” Kretschmer asks.

    At Florida Vision Technology, Kretschmer and her team offer personalized service and one-on-one product demonstrations to make sure each client has the best solution for their vision and lifestyle. Kretschmer states, “The IrisVision has many adjustable settings including contrast, ambient levels, and interpupilar distance, so we make sure the device is custom fit to each person”.

    SteelSeries sets a new standard in gaming mouse sensor technology with the launch of the TrueMove3 optical sensor, engineered in partnership with PixArt, becoming the first true 1-to-1 sensor.

    Chicago, IL (PRWEB) August 01, 2017

    SteelSeries, the fastest growing major PC gaming headset brand in the US*, today sets a new standard in gaming mouse sensor technology with the launch of the SteelSeries TrueMove3 optical sensor, engineered in partnership with PixArt, becoming the first true 1-to-1 sensor. SteelSeries releases the TrueMove3 sensor exclusively in the newly designed Sensei 310 and Rival 310 gaming mice.

    “We are launching the first true, esports sensor,” said Ehtisham Rabbani, SteelSeries CEO. “Our brand was built more than 15 years ago to help esports pros win championships. We are proud and humbled that our gear has won more prize money than any other brand. We have done this by ignoring conventional wisdom, and focusing on what truly makes esports pros better - out of that quest comes the new TrueMove sensor.”

    The TrueMove3 Sensor – The First True Esports Sensor

    The TrueMove3 is a 12,000 CPI, 350 IPS optical sensor that SteelSeries built with sensor industry leader, PixArt. Its ultra-low-latency, rapid-response tracking delivers the most natural and accurate mouse movement. Unlike other mouse sensors bogged down with inefficient jitter reduction and tracking latency, TrueMove3’s 1-to-1 tracking from 100 to 3,500 CPI delivers true esports performance. No other gaming mouse in the world has ever offered this.

    From 3,500 to 12,000 CPI the TrueMove3 uses new, advanced jitter reduction to deliver natural mouse movement without slowing down response time. The custom-engineered TrueMove3 SROM dramatically reduces response time and greatly increases accuracy.

    Thanks to the exclusive collaboration with PixArt, the TrueMove3 is the first sensor of its kind and is only available in the Sensei 310 and Rival 310.

    EG Dota 2 player, Syed “SumaiL” Hassan says, “I win because I work hard to be the best, and I need gear that can keep up - a mouse that makes me forget that I’m even using it. That’s what we need as players, gear to match our pace and be an extension of us. I’ve been winning LAN's using a prototype of the Sensei 310 since early this year - now it's my mouse, and, when I'm finished with it, it will have won millions.”

    Sensei 310 - The Master Respawns

    The legendary SteelSeries Sensei is back with enhanced technology and features in the acclaimed ambidextrous Sensei design. The mouse features 8-programmable buttons, the industry’s first pure silicone side grips, a new, exclusive split-trigger button design with mechanical switches that guarantee an industry-leading 50-million clicks ensuring lifelong durability for a fast and consistent click feel.

    Rival 310 - The Right Hand

    The Rival 310 is the newest member of the Rival line. The new Rival 310 shares all the same features and sensor as the Sensei 310, but in an ergonomic, right-handed design that the Rival line is recognized for. The new esports mouse includes six programmable buttons and a soft resistance-free rubber cable.

    SteelSeries Engine Software

    On-board memory allows the user to save settings, so gamers don’t need to reconfigure their settings for the mouse on different computers. The mouse is also compatible with SteelSeries Engine Apps like PrismSync and GameSense lighting to provide synchronized lighting effects across SteelSeries devices and display reactive illumination responses to in-game events.

    The Sensei 310 and Rival 310 exclusively featuring SteelSeries TrueMove3 Sensor are available now on SteelSeries website each for $59.99 / €69.99.

    Today, Allegro Software announced it has earned FIPS 140-2 level 1 validation on four additional platforms with the Allegro Cryptography Engine, ACE from the U.S. government’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

    BOXBOROUGH, MA (PRWEB) August 01, 2017

    Allegro Software, a leading supplier of Internet component software for the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced it has earned FIPS 140-2 level 1 validation on four additional platforms with the Allegro Cryptography Engine (ACE) from the U.S. government’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). This marks the culmination of Allegro’s largest validation effort to date with the U.S. government. Specifically engineered for the rigors of resource constrained IoT computing environments, ACE enables manufacturers to leverage standards-based cryptography in IoT environments with ease. ACE is ideally suited for use in embedded systems and IoT applications in the military, energy, medical and communications industries.

    ACE AND FIPS 140-2 VALIDATION

    Since the passage of the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA), Federal agencies and contractors have a mandate to maintain greater control over data and information systems as a whole. U.S. Federal agencies that use cryptographic-based systems to protect sensitive information in military, medical, telecommunications, IoT applications and other IT-related products must use FIPS 140-2 validated modules to meet these security requirements. FIPS 140-2 validation is also required by national agencies in Canada and is recognized in Europe and Australia.

    ACE is one of the smallest, fastest, and most comprehensive FIPS 140-2 validated software modules on the market for IoT applications. Specifically engineered for the critical cryptographic computing needs of IoT applications, ACE is easily used, highly portable, and uniquely configurable to operate in the toughest resource sensitive environments. With a rich software API, IoT developers can easily perform bulk encryption and decryption, message digests, digital signature creation and validation, along with key generation and exchange. ACE also includes a platform independent implementation of NSA defined Suite B cryptographic algorithms as well as other FIPS approved algorithms. The FIPS approved algorithms are listed on the NIST CAVP sites along with the final validation designation on the NIST CVMP site.

    To further aid developers implementing IoT security, ACE is pre-integrated with the full suite of Allegro AE IoT connectivity and security toolkits including RomSTL (TLS 1.2), RomCert (SCEP and OCSP), RomSShell AE (SSH), RomPager AE (web server) and RomWebClient AE (web client).

    IoT SECURITY AND HARDWARE CRYPTOGRAPHIC ACCELERATION

    IoT applications are engineered from the ground up for resource sensitive execution environments. Typically, the primary driving factor in these applications aims to deliver the highest value IoT product at the lowest cost. Unfortunately, implementing cryptographic security protocols in any environment is resource intensive in CPU, RAM and ROM which IoT devices often find difficult to support. To help address these needs, silicon manufacturers augment their chipsets with specifically engineered cryptographic engines to off-load resource intensive cryptographic calculations. Two of Allegro’s most recent FIPS 140-2 validated ACE modules have the flexibility to utilize on-board cryptographic acceleration when available. This greatly increases throughput while reducing the demand for CPU, RAM and ROM. These validations have been configured to support the on-board cryptographic acceleration from Intel (AES-NI) in addition to hardware based entropy to meet the latest NIST Implementation Guidance for FIPS modules.

    “The need is critical for advanced security in IoT devices,” says Bob Van Andel, President of Allegro. “With the culmination of Allegro’s latest validations, IoT developers have access to the most essential component of seven key elements needed for proactive IoT security – highly portable, reliable, FIPS 140-2 validated cryptography.” ACE is delivered as an ANSI-C source code toolkit and is available now. To learn more about the “7 Key Elements for Proactive IoT Security” visit our website: https://www.allegrosoft.com/secure-iot.

    OneLogin protect to minimize workday interruptions by providing a more secure, streamlined multi-factor authentication experience.

    San Francisco, Calif. (PRWEB) August 01, 2017

    OneLogin, the identity management provider bringing speed and integrity to the modern enterprise, today announced the release of OneLogin Protect, a minimally-intrusive multi-factor authentication solution designed to increase security and productivity for OneLogin customers.

    Companies today are quickly moving to multi-factor authentication to increase application security beyond single-factor authentication. This has caused a reduction in productivity, as users are required to authenticate themselves manually by entering in a one-time password code sent to their mobile device before they can gain access to company applications.

    OneLogin Protect simplifies this process by displaying MFA Access Requests as a notification. Users can tap on the notification from their lock screen, which then prompts them to “Accept” or “Deny” the access request and verify through Touch ID. The entire process requires no more than 5-10 seconds, reducing the level of interruption to allow users to return to peak productivity sooner.

    “There is nothing more annoying than having to stop what you are doing for an MFA access request. Like all users, we wanted to reduce these constant interruptions in our workday,” said David Meyer, vice president of product, OneLogin. “That’s why we set-out to build a more streamlined MFA experience. With OneLogin Protect, users can accept MFA requests with two taps on their phone or one tap on their watch. It couldn’t be more simple.”

    In addition to using a user’s mobile device, OneLogin can send access requests to a user's Apple Watch or Android Wear that are paired with a phone running OneLogin Protect. This allows users to simply touch a notification on their watch to authenticate themselves. OneLogin Watch MFA is another way OneLogin is helping users return to productivity faster than ever before.

    OneLogin Protect is now generally available for Android and iOS phones and watches. To download OneLogin Protect from the iOS app store, please visit: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/onelogin-protect/id509252983?mt=8.
