Mr. Rob Wigley, Director, Cybersecurity Consulting Services, HP Enterprise Services, U.S. Public Sector, told us, "Without question, adversaries have become smarter, better organized, and more persistent as they seek to cause disruptions and access intellectual property and other sensitive information. The number of cyber threats is proliferating faster than many organizations can defend. Many companies and global governments have been subjected to some very sophisticated and targeted attacks, which have had a significant impact on their mission. This includes some recent extremely high-profile breaches conducted by insiders. In order to address these threats, first and foremost an organization needs to have an effective risk management program supported by senior management, with a strong governance structure, and integrated across all business processes. As businesses look for new growth opportunities and consequently adopt new technologies, the tradeoff becomes uncertainty and risk that could affect their mission and goals. A continuous process of risk management activities should be applied to identify new risks, reassess previously identified risks, and monitor and track the effectiveness of risk mitigation plans...

"Fujitsu and ImageWare Continue to Deliver Market Leading Cloud-Based Biometric Identity Management Solutions and Services
As the biometric market landscape evolves, Fujitsu and ImageWare Systems (OTCQB: IWSY) continue to deliver leading cloud-based biometric identity management solutions and services that address the needs of companies in the financial services, retail, healthcare and manufacturing sectors. This cloud based biometric platform is designed to provide these industries with an agnostic approach relative to various modalities such as voice, facial, iris, and fingerprinting applications.
In the past, biometric-enabled solutions entailed complex development processes, where projects typically took one year or longer to implement, and companies were required to make major upfront investments in hardware and software. Today, Fujitsu is collaborating with ImageWare Systems, a developer of identity-based, credential management solutions driven by biometric technology, to enable support for more than 50 biometric devices while instantaneously responding to different types of modalities.
Along with ImageWare, Fujitsu is transforming the market with its cloud-based identity platform, or "biometrics as a service," through quick deployment that lowers costs and permits customers to choose and blend modalities to develop the best use case for their particular organization and requirements, permitting rapid integration with existing business intelligence and systems.
"We continue to collaborate with ImageWare because we see a growing need among our customers to securely identify and authenticate data that is important for enterprise businesses, while also addressing IT demands leveraging easily-deployed, scalable, cloud-based solutions," said David Berry, executive vice president, Infrastructure Services at Fujitsu. "We are in a unique position to work with established and emerging markets to define and diversify how biometric solutions and services are utilized -- whether it's preventing fraud at financial institutions or using voice recognition via mobile devices to investigate criminal activity."
ImageWare Systems supports a dozen different biometric models via its patented biometric engine. The company delivers its biometric technology through the Fujitsu interactive cloud-based service and provides authentication using the latest range of smart mobile devices, a key area of growth for the technology market.
"ImageWare Systems was founded more than a decade ago focusing on developing innovative, patented-protected technology to allow private and public organizations to deploy configurable and modular multi-modal biometric based identity and authentication management solutions," said Jim Miller, chairman and CEO of ImageWare Systems. "By partnering with Fujitsu, we are focused on helping global enterprises and service providers succeed in providing value to their business and customers with the next generation of cloud-based Identification management, poised to save businesses multi billions of dollars on a yearly basis, especially as we see transactions shift to mobile devices which are expected to exceed the world population in 2014."

"...they will be launching two mobile products at this year's annual RSA Security Conference, February 24th - 28th in San Francisco, CA."
"We are very excited about launching GuardedID Mobile and MobileTrust® at this year's conference," says Mark L. Kay, CEO of StrikeForce, "both products deliver an unprecedented level of mobile security that until today, just hasn't been available and timing couldn't be any more perfect." GuardedID Mobile is a Software Developers Kit (SDK) and it's the industry's "only" patented (#8,566,608) Keystroke Encryption Technology available for Apple and Android mobile applications. GuardedID Mobile enables mobile application developers to embed keystroke encryption directly into mobile applications, preventing cyber theft and data breaches due to the latest and growing mobile malware. GuardedID Mobile was designed to minimally protect the following applications from data loss: eCommerce, Banking, Healthcare, BillPay, Loan, Government, Corporate and Consumer applications.
MobileTrust® is the industry's most advanced security suite for Apple & Android mobile devices, protecting user credentials, passwords, online transactions and access to corporate networks. The MobileTrust bundle includes four of the most powerful must-have security features that every enterprise mobile user needs to be secure, which are, AES 256 Bit Encrypted Password Vault, a Strong User Definable Password Generator, an OATH compliant Two-Factor Authenticator and an Encrypted Keyboard & Browser.
Mark Kay, StrikeForce's CEO, will also be presenting at the 10th Annual America's Growth Capital West Coast Conference at 8:30am on February 24th in the Westin. Also please visit us at the RSA Security Show at our Booth #821 in the South Exhibit Hall in Mascone Conference Center.
Mark Kay also said recently...
"We believe opportunities for StrikeForce Technologies, Inc. ("Company") are progressively promising, as we see that demand and sales of our products are growing, even though not as fast as we projected in 2013. Cyber Theft and data breaches are increasing at a faster pace and in the news almost every day with reports on Data Breaches (e.g. Target, Living Social, Federal Reserve, State of Maryland), Viruses stealing keystrokes (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, Gmail) and phishing attacks (fake websites - IRS, banks). Financial institutions are being sued and losing, and cybercrime statistics in our opinion, are projected to be into the trillions of dollars globally. In conjunction with this news, regulations focusing on protecting information are gathering strength with emphasis in the financial (FFIEC), healthcare (HIPPA), consumer (PCI) and now legal markets. If you then include various articles that state "...it is only a matter of time before your mobile device is hacked, if it isn't already," StrikeForce management contends that demand is increasing specifically for the types of features and capabilities that StrikeForce Technologies' patented and patent pending products deliver. All of this translates, in our estimation, into the potential for substantial sales and revenue growth in 2014 as the Company begins to exploit the mobile market and reaches its Vision of "Making the World a Safer Place." A detailed 2013 Year in Review and A Look Forward into 2014 is available on the StrikeForce website by clicking HERE."
