EVIDENCE.com Expands Its Cloud-Based "Virtual Evidence Room"

Allows Secure Transfer of Sensitive Electronic Files by Law Enforcement to District Attorneys

SEATTLE, WA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/19/14 -- Recognizing that law enforcement agencies often rely on manual practices to transfer sensitive electronic evidence -- including videos, photos and audio recordings -- to district attorneys (DAs) and other outside parties, EVIDENCE.com, a business unit of TASER (NASDAQ: TASR) today unveiled EVIDENCE.com External Sharing, a new technology built specifically so digital evidence can be securely and instantaneously shared.

Today's announcement means law enforcement can now log into EVIDENCE.com and email secure links that allow DAs, the media or others to access specific files to create virtual evidence rooms. The process is similar to sharing files through widely used consumer cloud-based storage systems like Dropbox, but with powerful security protections incorporated.

"The ability to share evidentiary video through EVIDENCE.com External Sharing to the Commonwealth Attorney has proven invaluable for our agency," said Detective Melissa Clemens from the Newport News Police Department, one of the beta testing agencies during the past several months. "Because we no longer need to burn disks and devote officer time to transporting them around, we can re-focus those resources on other pressing police work. Most importantly, using this new technology has increased the number of cases that end in plea deals. This reduces our officers' time in court since we can get the evidence in front of the prosecutors immediately."

"This new functionality modernizes a time and money wasting process, by erasing inefficiencies and giving time back to officers so they can focus on actual police work, not administrative activities," said Jason Droege, President of EVIDENCE.com.

In addition to leveraging the cloud for its secure data center, EVIDENCE.com draws on wearable technology and smart-phone applications for its arsenal of digital-evidence collection and management tools available to law enforcement.

AXON body worn video cameras allow officers to easily capture video evidence that then seamlessly uploads to their agencies' EVIDENCE.com account. Additionally, EVIDENCE Mobile™, a free application supported on iOS™ and Android™, turns officers' smart phones into user-friendly, evidence-capturing devices, with secure photo, video and audio-recording capabilities.

"While law enforcement agencies collect and manage growing amounts of digital evidence each year, very little technological innovation has come forward to address this pressing need," said Droege. "EVIDENCE.com is the only technology transforming the way digital evidence is collected and handled. Ultimately we want to save agencies time and money, increase transparency with the public, and help solve more crimes."

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...
The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...
