    LAS VEGAS, July 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- SSH Communications Security, known the world over as the inventor of the SSH protocol, today announced the launch of its CryptoAuditor™ solution at the Black Hat USA 2012 conference. The new offering helps prevent data loss across encrypted secure shell, RDP and SFTP traffic with inline, real-time and transparent audit capabilities for financial service providers, retailers and other enterprises transmitting sensitive information. CryptoAuditor is the second module released this year as part of the company's Information Assurance Platform.

    "We launched the Universal SSH Key Manager module earlier this year at RSA and we have received an excellent response from our customers since then," said Matthew McKenna, SSH vice president of sales and marketing.  "With the launch of CryptoAuditor, SSH provides the next logical extension to our platform, a fully transparent, centralized privileged access auditing solution, delivering strong data-in-transit security that requires no changes to existing network architecture."

    The Universal SSH Key Manager module and the CryptoAuditor module integrate smoothly into existing enterprise security solutions – including DLP and SIEM – providing deeper audit and forensics capabilities into encrypted traffic.

    Both modules employ sophisticated key management capabilities, including group-based access controls and automatic key discovery, deployment and removal. This critical link between the two modules allows for fully transparent inline deployments, providing strong security, minimal system latency, operating cost reduction and the ability to deploy a single-sign-on effect throughout the entire enterprise.

    "Our platform's key management capabilities provide controls over who can gain access to what information in secure shell environments," said Jason Thompson, SSH director of global marketing. "By combining our key management capabilities with CryptoAuditor, organizations will see immediate ROI by solving issues surrounding auditing, control and key management."

    CryptoAuditor Key Facts:

    • Inline deployment capabilities eliminate costly and time-consuming workarounds and processes required by first-generation solutions
    • Reduces the risk from advanced external threats by controlling and monitoring information as it moves across the environment, preventing data loss with an internal policy engine and DLP/SIEM integration capabilities
    • Delivers immediate control and accountability over privileged access users, closing significant security gaps in information security architecture
    • A minimally invasive approach that captures a broad array of traffic across all needed audit points while remaining transparent to administrators 
    • Designed to easily deploy across distributed architecture, making management easy through a one-console approach

    , July 25, 2012 SAN FRANCISCO

    /PRNewswire/ -- Terracotta, Inc. today announced a new version of BigMemory, the industry's leading in-memory big data management solution, in response to customer demand for ever-increasing scale. The new version, available immediately, includes significant enhancements in scalability, search and security, and further sets the bar for in-memory data management. BigMemory 3.7 is ideal for organizations that require real-time, in-memory access to terabytes of data to achieve unprecedented speed, performance and scale for the applications that power their business.

    (Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20120724/LA43584LOGO)

    Faced with exploding data volumes – the big data challenge – and a need to instantaneously analyze and act on business information, companies are struggling with current big data solutions that require advanced programming skills and high-level data scientists. BigMemory provides a simple, snap-in solution that easily integrates into existing IT environments to deliver immediate business value. It unlocks the value in big data by maximizing the use of inexpensive memory (RAM) to deliver a comprehensive solution for real-time access to massive amounts of business data, delivering up to 1,000 times faster access to terabytes of data than any other technology.

    "Terracotta's BigMemory 3.7 in-memory data acceleration can change the cadence of business operations to support more immediate responses," said Anne MacFarland, principal at MacFarland Consulting. "This can be a game-changer in many industries."

    Key capabilities and enhancements to BigMemory 3.7 include:

    • Massive Scale. In response to the exploding growth of customer data, Terracotta has increased the capacity of BigMemory by a factor of 10. With BigMemory 3.7, customers can fully utilize all the memory (RAM) in terabyte servers, and linearly add servers as needed, to deploy massive in-memory Big Data solutions.
    • In-memory Search. Search has become a critical capability in Terracotta's big data deployments. With this new optimized release, data is indexed without significant overhead, empowering users to conduct fast searches with predictable low latencies across terabytes of in-memory data.
    • Enhanced Security. In response to customers' requirements for out-of-the-box security integration, BigMemory 3.7 now provides transport level security via SSL and heightened security access for monitoring and managing deployments.

    With over 500,000 enterprise deployments, including 70 percent of Global 1000 companies, the adoption of Terracotta's in-memory data management solutions continues to significantly grow. BigMemory is widely used in global markets ranging from financial services, gaming, travel and telecommunications, transforming business operations at companies such as JP Morgan, Sabre, Comcast and Omnifone.

    For example, a large national financial institution uses Terracotta to provide accurate fraud detection that can keep up with peak processing loads. With BigMemory they can identify fraud events in real-time, reducing their fraud detection-to-notification time from 45 minutes to less than four seconds. A leading telecommunications carrier seamlessly migrated their call-center to mobile customer self service by storing terabytes of customer data in machine memory. The new system, powered by BigMemory, reduced access latencies from 30 seconds per lookup to 30 milliseconds and revolutionized their customer interaction strategy by transforming the speed at which they can do business.

    "The explosion of big data volume, velocity and variety creates business challenges that legacy platforms simply cannot address," said Gary Nakamura, general manager of Terracotta. "BigMemory not only simplifies and dramatically improves big data management performance, but it does so at terabyte scale, creating real opportunities for business innovation for our customers."

    HANGZHOU, China, July 25, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia/ --  In response to questions from investors, China 3C Group (stock symbol: CHCG) ("China 3C", or "the Company", or "we") provides clarification regarding the ownership structure of the Company's foreign-owned entity. The Company's Wholly Foreign Owned Entity (WFOE) Zhejiang YongXin Digital Technology Company Limited ("Zhejiang") was incorporated under the laws of the People's Republic of China ("PRC" or "China") on July 11, 2005.  Zhejiang became 100% controlled by Capital Future Developments Limited ("Capital"), a BVI company, through share-holding entrustment agreements on November 21, 2005. Capital became a wholly owned subsidiary of China 3C through merger agreements on December 21, 2005. As such, Zhejiang became a 100% controlled subsidiary of China 3C. Since then, the direct ownership structure has not been altered.

    On August 15, 2007, we executed a series of contractual agreements between Capital and Zhejiang.   However, we did not dispose of Capital's equity ownership of Zhejiang when we executed the contractual agreements. As a result, these contractual agreements did not affect the equity ownership of Zhejiang. The agreements only provided additional support that Capital and its equity owners have the obligation and the ability to absorb any losses, and the rights to receive distribution of returns from Zhejiang. Capital remains as the owner of 100% of Zhejiang's equity. Capital enjoys the actual shareholder's rights to obtain any benefits that any nominal shareholders would receive from Zhejiang.

    About China 3C Group

    China 3C Group ("China 3C", or "the Company") (CHCG) is a leading wholesale distributor and retailer of 3C merchandise: computers, communication products and consumer electronics. The company specializes in wholesale distribution and retail sales of 3C products in Eastern China, focusing on products that make life more comfortable, convenient and connected.

    CUPERTINO, Calif., July 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Cybercriminals have increased their focus in targeting individuals and organizations of all sizes to steal personal and financial information according to the security roundup report for the second quarter of 2012 released today by the global cloud security leader Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704).

    Among the examples of these increasingly focused attacks were the 142 million threats which were blocked from infecting small businesses as of the second quarter of 2012, an increase of 27% quarter on quarter. Trend Micro's report also outlines increasingly sophisticated attacks against individuals in the form of ATS attacks. Large organizations weren't exempt either: the IXSHE campaign showed cybercriminals stepping up their tactics to gain access to large multinational corporations without notice.

    In addition to these more targeted attacks, Trend Micro's report shows cybercriminals continuing to cast their net widely in large-scale attacks using newer, more lethal methods. Police Trojan Attacks and the Black Hole Exploit Kit continue to target desktop systems while newer platforms such as Android are seeing an unprecedented explosion in malicious apps. Social media wasn't exempt as cybercriminals jumped on the Pinterest bandwagon bringing tried-and-true scams to the latest social networking craze.

    Across the board though, the goal is the same: to get personal data and financial information.

    "The reason why criminals are focusing their attacks on stealing personal data is simple. It's the sheer volume of people working from multiple devices that leaves them vulnerable to attacks," said Rik Ferguson, director of security research and communication, Trend Micro. "While Trend Micro has been integral in working with authorities to break up a number of cybercriminal rings over the last year, these cybercriminals have acquired new techniques and tools from collaborating with one another to accelerate their 'industry.' The fact is: business is booming for cybercrime and everyone needs to take notice."

    Notable trends in Q2 2012:

    CHARLOTTE, N.C., July 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Baker & Taylor, Inc., the world's largest distributor of digital and physical books, is honored to announce that it has won a prestigious award from the National Federation of the Blind for making ebooks available to blind individuals through the groundbreaking Axis 360 digital media platform, which includes the Blio ereader.

    (Logo:  http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20090529/CL24290LOGO ) 

    Baker & Taylor received the Dr. Jacob Bolotin Award at the NFB's annual convention in Dallas. The award honors individuals and organizations that have "made outstanding contributions toward achieving the full integration of the blind into society on a basis of equality." The NFB commended Baker & Taylor for its "industry-leading example in making its ebook products accessible…With the digital book services of Baker & Taylor, our goal of reading equality – same book, same time, same price – is being fulfilled as never before."

    "We are honored to receive this award from the country's largest and most prestigious organization representing the interests of blind and visually-impaired people," said Arnie Wight, President and COO of Baker & Taylor. "Libraries play a vital role in ensuring their communities have access to the latest and best books and digital media. With Axis 360 and Blio, libraries can more inclusively serve their whole community, by opening up a world of new content to blind and sighted people alike."

    Baker & Taylor not only delivers the fully-accessible media platform Axis 360 for libraries, it also powers Blio, a free ereading application that works on iOS, Windows and Android devices and has features that help visually-impaired individuals and people with reading disabilities. When used together, Axis 360 and Blio allow patrons with reading or visual disabilities to explore their library's digital collection, easily find and borrow items of interest and have them read aloud. Axis 360 and the Blio application were developed in partnership with the NFB.

    Dr. Marc Maurer, President of the National Federation of the Blind, said: "Axis 360 will revolutionize the way in which blind readers get books. The blind will now be able to borrow accessible books directly from the collections of their local public libraries instead of having to wait for the books to be converted to an accessible format and included in specialized collections that serve the blind. As the collection of books available through Axis 360 increases, we look forward to the day when every book available at the local library will also be available to the blind at the same time and in an accessible format."

    DALLAS, July 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Continuing its investment in the Middle East, Entrust Inc. announces the availability of Arabic-language soft tokens as part of the Entrust IdentityGuard software authentication platform and the company's comprehensive security framework. These distinctive soft tokens are available natively with Entrust IdentityGuard and don't require investment or application development by end-customers.

    "Entrust's security framework not only bridges physical, logical and mobile access management via a single platform, but also provides necessary migration capabilities to co-exist with current systems that help streamline transition," said Entrust President and CEO Bill Conner. "Dedicated Arabic-language soft tokens will simplify security for native Arabic-speaking customers, helping Entrust provide world-class security that delivers on both effectiveness and the end-user experience."

    Entrust IdentityGuard is a key component of Entrust's identity framework that serves as the foundation of a complete layered security environment, which includes the deployment of strong, risk-based authentication to properly secure banking customers, enterprises, financial institutions and governments.

    Entrust's Arabic soft token is already being deployed in two of the largest financial institutions within the Gulf Cooperation Council countries, with more than 6 million total users in the region. Distribution of soft tokens is achieved through mobile-based marketplaces, like Apple iTunes and Google Play, or the Entrust IdentityGuard Self-Service Module for user management.

    The GCC, also known as the Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf, consists of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Qatar and Kuwait. The group boasts a combined population of 42.1 million.

    "The Middle East, particularly the six GCC states, are experiencing tremendous growth, and have been for some time," said Conner. "Until now, many of their only authentication options were based on the English language. This is a true differentiator for Entrust and delivered as a native capability on our ever-expanding software authentication platform."

    Entrust's comprehensive management framework serves as an organization's single software-based security platform that bridges emerging technologies for strong mobility, cloud and smart credentialing offerings. By seamlessly integrating co-deployment measures, federation security, advanced APIs and self-service management tools, Entrust strengthens security, maximizes staff efficiency and reduces overall costs.

    Entrust's flagship authentication solution, Entrust IdentityGuard, continues to lead the industry as one of the most robust software authentication platforms, delivering an unmatched breadth of capabilities and flexibility to meet the most demanding security environments.

    The solution enables organizations to layer security — according to access requirements or the risk of a given transaction — across diverse users and applications. Entrust's diverse set of authentication capabilities include smartcards and USB tokens, soft tokens, grid cards and eGrids, IP-geolocation, questions and answers, mobile smart credentials, out-of-band one-time passcode (delivered via voice, SMS or email), out-of-band transaction verification and a range of one-time-passcode tokens.

    SAN JOSE, Calif., July 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Infineta Systems, the first and only provider of WAN optimization solutions for Big Traffic workflows, announced today that its Data Mobility Switch (DMS) has been selected by Rezolve Group over competitors to significantly accelerate replication and backup traffic over the WAN while providing a strong foundation to easily adapt and implement any future data mobility initiatives.

    Rezolve, an innovative student aid technology and services company, selected Infineta's DMS over Riverbed's Steelhead product to immediately accelerate data protection workflows by as much as 8X, while also initiating a WAN bandwidth growth strategy that works hand-in-hand with the deployed DMS devices. Rezolve aims to utilize the DMS to accelerate its entire set of inter-data center workflows, including block-level replication traffic, database replication traffic, and VMware Site Recovery Manager (SRM) based traffic.

    "Our selection criteria for a WAN optimization solution didn't simply focus on addressing today's needs to accelerate various data protection applications," stated Robert Reeder, CIO of Rezolve Group. "We were also looking for a solution that would enable us to build out a strong foundation for our long-distance WAN for future data growth and for upcoming projects. Infineta's solutions beat out the competition in terms of sheer performance, and can scale to optimize traffic rates that we expect to be driving in the near future. Most importantly, we don't need to rip and replace DMS units to achieve higher performance; we can simply purchase higher-speed licenses and carry out in-field upgrades all the way to 10Gbps performance. We see the DMS as a strategic, long term solution that will keep up with our tremendous data growth."

    "Rezolve's selection of the DMS validates the performance and scalability of the WAN optimization platform we have built here at Infineta," said Raj Kanaya, Infineta Co-Founder and CEO.  "We are extremely pleased as this further corroborates the fact that the DMS is the highest-performing and most scalable WAN optimization solution for inter-data center applications, bar none."

    Infineta Systems is the first networking company to develop and market WAN optimization systems that accelerate traffic over inter-data center WANs. Infineta's Data Mobility Switch (DMS) can accelerate traffic at up to 10Gbps while adding just microseconds of processing latency, making it the best WAN Optimization solution for inter-datacenter applications. With the Infineta DMS, enterprises can enable critical applications such as long-distance replication, cross-site virtualization and Big Data without adding expensive bandwidth.

    About Rezolve 
    Rezolve Group, Inc. is an innovative student aid technology and services company serving students, post-secondary schools, and Fortune 500 companies.

    The Let's Play Backpack accessory turns traditional screen time into engaging family time on iPad.

    MUMBAI, India, July 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

    Vserv.mobi, a leading Global Mobile Ad network, announced today its partnership to power App Monetization for Vodafone. As a leading mobile operator, Vodafone offers its users with a vast choice of apps across all devices, via its app store called VStore. The partnership will enable powerful App monetization for Vodafone's developers targeting app distribution through the VStore.

         (Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20120725/546333 )

    For a developer, it is always a difficult decision between choosing their app to be offered for free or as a paid download, since changing from one model to another always has significant barriers in terms of cost & coding effort. Vodafone's developers will benefit from the Vserv.mobi AppWrapper, which enables a combination of both, paid & free models running in parallel. This approach eliminates the dilemma of choosing only one model and maximizes App monetization with minimum effort.

    The AppWrapper is the World's SIMPLEST App Monetization platform. AppWrapper enables premium mobile advertising & innovative pricing models on any app, without coding, in just one click. The patent pending AppWrapper platform currently powers App monetization for over 10,000 Apps, from developers such as Glu Mobile, Digital Chocolate, Indiagames (now part of Disney), Nazara, Jump Games, amongst others globally.

    Validating the innovative approach, Jonathan Bill, SVP, Business Development and Innovation, Vodafone India commented, "AppWrapper is a first-of-its-kind platform that enables free and paid App monetisation models, across both smart phones and feature phones without any coding effort. We believe that this will reinvigorate the mobile internet ecosystem by allowing developers to accelerate their monetisation efforts and trigger innovation."

    The paid monetization capabilities enabled by the AppWrapper include innovative pricing models such as Try & Buy, Pay per Play and Subscriptions - all enabled in One Click, without any coding effort. It allows developers to connect into any billing mechanism - be it direct telco billing from mobile operators like Vodafone or App Stores like Nokia and Android Market.

    Binay Tiwari, Head of Marketing, Vserv.mobi said "Advertising combined with Micro transaction based pricing models are ideal for targeting the vast majority of prepaid mobile users in emerging markets. AppWrapper enables this in One Click, thus offering developers tremendous flexibility in go-to-market across geographies."

    Vserv continues to ramp up partnerships with developers, content providers and mobile operators and is accepting signups at http://vserv.mobi/dev
