SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., April 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Kuboo Inc., DBA Safe Communications Inc., (OTCPink:SGTB) announced today that they obtained an exclusive license from AquilaVision utilizing their management communication system called OTTER to enhance school notification and monitoring of serious incidents. The OTTER system would go hand in hand with Safe Communications' www.AnonymousTip.com. Anonymous Tips currently has over 1200 schools and districts signed up, but is a system controlled by a single person, usually a child, wanting to report an incident. The Tips site is very active and there are new school systems signing up regularly. The two companies will share the revenues brought in by Safe Communications.
Safe Communications and AquilaVision Corporation teamed up to produce a one-of-a-kind downloadable mobile application that resides as a mobile app on administrators', teachers', security personnel or staff members' iPhone or Android. The app provides immediate & necessary communication between schools and emergency responders in the event of serious school emergencies or threats to students, teachers and staff, i.e. shooting, hostage, suicide, threat and terrorism, disaster, fire, evacuation, etc. The app will put school officials in control at the heart of a serious event. The app can also be used for other notifications, such as a school closing due to inclement weather.
The application offers a user-friendly interface that allows teachers and school administrators to request the appropriate emergency responders based on the severity of the situation. For example, if a minor accident at the playground were to occur, a user can, with a touch of a button on their smart phone, alert the paramedics and ambulance if necessary. In a more extreme situation, such as a hostage situation or shooting, users can alert police, fire departments, and even other schools and districts. In a matter of seconds, messages are sent via text, email, phone and even radio network, alerting all concerned and connected parties at the same time.
In the event of an incident, the ability for teachers and administrators to contact the appropriate organizations and individuals without delay can mean that the risk of damage, injury, and even death is greatly reduced.
AquilaVision partners include Verizon Wireless, Thermal Radar, Deaf Link, CNH, TouchPay and others. AquilaVision builds customized software solutions to move information from its source to people or systems that need to have it. Source information can be anything conveyed over a network: equipment status, asset location, sensor data, phone calls, emails, etc. This information can be evaluated, analyzed and manipulated by complex business rules. The result is information passed along to systems or personnel most closely associated with the results. Security Events detected by AquilaVision's OTTER technology can be securely relayed to the appropriate parties within seconds. AquilaVision also provides PIN protected accounts so that private information is protected and relayed only to the approved destination.
Pricing for this service with unlimited alerts will cost $85.00 per month for up to 40 responders, or $170.00 a month for 100 responders.
John Venners, CEO of KUBOO, said, "We are delighted to offer this unique service to schools nationwide as they seek more efficient ways to monitor and report incidents." KUBOO's AnonymousTips.com free reporting service is currently being utilized by over 1,200 schools/school districts in all 50 states.
Chuck Eubank, CEO of AquilaVision, said, "KUBOO (Safe Communications) is the ideal partner to offer this product to our school systems. The OTTER system has been successfully deployed with sensitive governmental agencies and major companies, such as Verizon."

Some developers believe that monitoring is a function of the operations team. Some operations teams firmly believe that monitoring the systems they maintain is sufficient to run the business successfully. Most of them are wrong. The complexity of today's applications have gone far and beyond the capabilities of "traditional" system-level monitoring tools and approaches and requires much broader knowledge of business and applications as a whole. The goal of DevOps is to connect all aspects of app...

When an enterprise builds a hybrid IaaS cloud connecting its data center to one or more public clouds, security is often a major topic along with the other challenges involved. Security is closely intertwined with the networking choices made for the hybrid cloud. Traditional networking approaches for building a hybrid cloud try to kludge together the enterprise infrastructure with the public cloud. Consequently this approach requires risky, deep "surgery" including changes to firewalls, subnets...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
