    Lausanne, Switzerland, July 29, 2013 --(PR.com)-- www.thewhistled.com

    The whistled is a tiny, cheap platform that runs advanced algorithms to detect people whistling. Its main use is lighting control, but will also work for all projects that electronic enthusiasts may have.

    As seen in the video embedded in the whistled website, it is very simple to set up and will detect all the very different types of whistles.

    This project is part of the open hardware and software initiative, therefore Mathieu includes all the sources in his website www.limpkin.fr.

    The project is hosted on tindie, a new website designed to promote electronic projects, to sell them to the public.

    Future families of whistled are planned, where the whistle detection part will already be included in different appliances.

    Philadelphia, PA, July 29, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Leddie has thought out design and functionality, so it can be used in various situations and forms: as notification or reminding center, a portable lamp, nightstand, LED coaster and more. “We put a lot of effort to make both project and a campaign appealing and interesting for backers. Just as Leddie is.,” - said Andrew Bendik, team leader. It is fully controlled by iOS or Android smartphone and tablet app - for setting light effects as well as notifications.

    The concept was to make a multiple purpose device in sleek design, combined with what the team does best – light. Leddie allows users to set individualized, fully controllable, visual notifications of any social media activity (minimum plan for today is: Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Tumblr), as well as calls, texts or calendar applications. It's a personalized, variable pad, and with different transparent objects it has both decorative and practical value. The owner, using the intuitive app, can quickly change all settings of Leddie – such as color (in full RGB), sequence of changes, luminosity and more.

    In the campaign there will be several different models available – such as one, offering voice notifications as well or basic, non-wireless version. For backers there are different colors of casings to choose from – including exclusive Kickstarter version made of anodized aluminum.

    The team behind Leddie asks for backers support to make the project happen.

    Lots of information, many inspirations for using Leddie as well as untypical, stop motion movie, can be found on Leddies’ Kickstarter campaign site: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1881820834/674600305?token=093a3313.

    The campaign will set off on 30th of July, 2 pm. EDT.

    San Ramon, CA, July 29, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Avatier Corp., a leader in risk-driven identity management software, links a new state report to the need for more complex passwords in its blog, "Data in Danger: Leverage an Automatic Password Reset Tool to Protect Privacy." According to the blog, in excess of 2.5 million Californians had their personal information placed at risk by private companies and public agencies in 2012 alone.

    "It’s human nature to gravitate toward simple, predictable and memorable passwords and reuse them across a variety of accounts,” said Nelson Cicchitto, chairman and CEO of Avatier. "Since enterprise password management strength hinges on complexity and unpredictability, it is critical to automate and enable self-service password reset as a way to enforce password policy."

    Once a suitably complex password is established, the password management software should synchronize across applications so that an employee need only keep track of a single secure password, according to the blog. It continues by pointing out that if users forget their more complex passwords, they need secure self-service password reset capabilities that do not drain IT department resources. A self-service password reset tool gives users this capability while lowering costs and ensuring password policy to improve information security.

    While there have been stringent laws around the proper management and disposal of paper documents, lawsuits, regulations and compliance requirements around safeguarding digital records are still in their infancy. “If the estimated rate of risk reported by the California Attorney General is anywhere close to accurate,” Cicchitto added, “there is not much doubt that additional litigation, legislative and regulations will be coming. Companies and agencies shouldn’t sit back and wait when there are enterprise password management solutions that will help them get ahead of the problem.”

    Source: CloudAccess

    Los Angeles, CA, July 29, 2013 --(PR.com)-- CloudAccess, the only IT security firm to currently offer a fully integrated cloud-based identity management (IDaaS) and single sign on (SSO) package, announced the addition and update of several critical application connectors.

    Part of the recently launched “Advanced Adapter Series,” connectors (application programming interface also known as API) for salesforce.com, SAP ECC, AS400 iSeries and GoogleApps received an upgrade to better facilitate automatic provisioning, reconciliation and password management combined with a seamless integration CloudAccess’ enterprise access control solution.

    “What we have done is close the loop on security management for various key applications,” said CloudAccess CEO Kevin Nikkhoo, “Clients with these apps or platforms can now better control who accesses what data.”

    The connectors facilitate important security functions such as the assigning of certain privileges to certain applications and data based on corporate role or need-to-know policies. Using these cloud-based functions, the typically laborious process is automatic and instantaneous throughout an enterprise. This includes the on-demand creation and removal of user accounts, maintenance of passwords (including user self-service) and reporting for compliance audits.

    “Considering the proliferation of applications that need to be accessed by employees, partners, suppliers and customers, our growing library of connectors simply make it easier and less expensive to protect the network,” Nikkhoo noted.

    Although the connectors are a component of an identity management solution (CloudIDM), the seamless integration with CloudAccess’ Access Management (CloudAM) solution ensures the continuous control of user credential protection across an enterprise regardless of size, hierarchical complexity or operational preferences. It also promotes authentication best practices, centralizes management of an application portfolio and satisfies regulatory compliance.

    According to CloudAccess, many organizations do not discern the difference between identity management and access management. Although both serve to secure an aspect of a user’s ability to utilize certain portions of a company’s IP assets, Identity Management (IDM) controls the creation and maintenance of a user’s digital rights and password security. Access management (sometimes referred to as single sign on or SSO) controls the funneling of these privileges to directly access certain applications and data from a central portal. Both are part of an end-to-end, unified security initiative.

    There is no other company that currently provides a multi-tenant cloud security option for both identity and access management as an integrated solution set.

    Currently CloudAccess promotes federated access connectors for several dozen popular applications. Additionally, using the company’s proprietary identity gateway solution, hundreds of legacy and web applications are additionally enabled for credential administration (identity management) and enterprise access distribution (access management).

    Contact CloudAccess at www.cloudaccess.com/contact to schedule a demo for the integrated identity management and access management solutions or call 877-550-2568 for more information.

    Red Bank, NJ, July 29, 2013 --(PR.com)-- StraightForward Methods announced today that Command Business Products will be the exclusive distributor of "Compliant A&G," the first completely dedicated and comprehensive Appeals and Grievances software solution available in the Healthcare industry. Compliant A&G, is a Business Process Management (BPM)-based, out the box software solution, that streamlines appeals and grievance operations by providing a full range of integrated turnkey services from complaint capture and document management through fully managed case handling and correspondence distribution.

    Winner of the Adaptive Case Management award for Production Case Management, Compliant A&G is now integrated with Command's printing and distribution capabilities allowing Health Insurers to reduce costs by as much as 50%. With Compliant A&G, form data, letter correspondence and other documentation from many sources are gathered and routed to internal and external parties for review and approval. A&G case interactions, many of which are strictly specified by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) and/or state regulators, are complex in nature and require heavy tracking auditing and reporting requirements. By systematically enforcing CMS rules, Compliant A&G prevents costly errors and miscommunication which can negatively impact STAR quality ratings.

    "Health insurers know that the handling of appeals and grievances can be a very challenging aspect of their business operation," said Gary Bolnick, President of Command, "By leveraging our Healthcare expertise with the Compliant A&G workflow automation and correspondence management solution, we can now provide Medicaid and Medicare organizations with the industry's first true end-to-end solution."

    “Overall, case handling has been significantly improved and our case managers now have greater control of the process, real-time visibility and reporting,” said Mike Richmond of Touchstone Health. “At the same time, the automation in Compliant A&G also ensures adherence to CMS regulatory requirements.”

    The need for this end-to-end solution has never been greater within the Health Insurance industry. By law, members of health insurance providers have the right to appeal any decision made by the provider. Members may also submit grievances expressing dissatisfaction with any aspect of the operations, activities or behavior of a Medicare health plan, or its providers, regardless of whether remedial action is requested. Providers who do not strictly follow the laws involving Appeals and Grievances (A&G’s) are subject to regulatory fines. Annual costs of managing such programs for a mid-sized medical insurance can quickly exceed $500,000, for large HMO's more than $1M/year.

    For inquiries concerning how Compliant A&G can help your organization, please contact a Command representative at 1-800-570-8755 or visit Commanddirect.com

    Norwood, MA, July 29, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Advanced Thermal Solutions, Inc. (ATS) has just introduced the FSC-200™ fan speed controller. This device is designed to control the fan/fan tray speed in a variety of applications, especially where air flow control is critical for accurate thermal design. Custom stageSPEED™ software, which is included with the product, permits the user to fully control the fans’ performance by adjusting the power from 0 to 100%. The FSC-200™ enables the user to perform a variety of airflow tests during different stages of product design and development, without the need to manipulate the fans power supply at the pre-specified ranges.

    One such case during the thermal design process is the desire to know what the temperature of the components are under varying fan speed. This will provide an envelope of safe operation of the device. The FSC-200™ simplifies the task by controlling the fan speed through the software, minimizing training, start-up times, and human error. This research quality device provides precise control with high accuracy of +/- 1%.

    The unit communicates via the USB port with a computer and requires no external power source, since the same USB port also is used to power up the FSC-200™. To power the fan or the fan tray, an external power supply is required with its minimum voltage and current equal to the fan or fan tray power requirements.

    stageSPEED™ enables the user to choose the PWM frequency of the fans. By entering a % duty cycle value, the fans will operate at that desired percentage of power. Fans can be controlled from 0 to 100% of the maximum allowable power. The system has a safety feature whereby, when the USB cable is disconnected, the fans/fan tray will automatically stop.

    The FSC-200™ is ideal for the telecom, automotive, and aerospace industries, in addition to medical instrumentation, fan manufacturers, thermal management and air chamber applications.

    To learn more about the FSC-200™ please call 781-769-2800, email ats-hq@qats.com, or visit www.qats.com.

    West Yorkshire, United Kingdom, July 29, 2013 --(PR.com)-- In the past few months, Global Graphic Equipment Ltd have installed UV coating and film laminating machines to Ukraine, Russia, France, Bulgaria, Turkey and India. Before delivery machines are brought back into their factory in Wakefield, West Yorkshire, where they are refurbished to a high standard.

    Global Graphic have two factory sites in Wakefield housing one of the largest stock of used machinery for the print finishing industry. Here, many of the machines go through a full clean and refurbishment by their team of highly skilled engineers. They offer a full turnkey operation from sourcing the machine right through to delivery, installation and commissioning plus a full after sales service.

    During June Global Graphic took a stand at the FESPA screen printing exhibition in Excel London where they sold 6 UV coating and film laminating machines to two companies in UK and Bulgaria. The number of visitors was low but the quality of visitors was excellent. Also Global has noticed a recent upsurge in the UK market. Sales have increased with a marked upturn on activity compared with last year.

    Why buy from Global Graphic? The answer is quite simple; to quote their Managing Director, "We look after our customers from start to finish ensuring a smooth transition to the point of installation and thereafter. A measure of our success is through our reputation and the number of customers which come back to us time and time again to purchase a second, third and fourth machine."

    COLUMBUS, OH, July 29, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Since the release of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007, SharePoint has become an indispensable corporate collaboration tool for users around the globe, deployed by millions of enterprises worldwide. But its popularity with corporate users looking for an easy and intuitive way to collaborate and grow their businesses also presents management and governance challenges. To guide IT professionals interested in improving adoption, meeting business goals and attaining faster ROI through their SharePoint rollouts, ICC, a nationally recognized enterprise technology leader that provides business-critical application development, digital and big data analytic solutions to its Fortune 1000 national and global clients, has developed a white paper on the Seven Steps for SharePoint Success.

    Want to Learn More?
    ICC's Michael McNett, National Business Strategist for SharePoint Services, offers strategies in a new white paper that explores the ways companies can extend their SharePoint roadmap beyond the planning phase to include implementation and operational phases. Download a complimentary copy of "ICC Roadmap Framework for Business and IT Alignment" at http://bit.ly/1bWzMGe.

    SharePoint Deployment Spectrum
    SharePoint is often deployed one of two ways, according to Joe Hartsel, Business Strategy Manager for SharePoint Services at ICC. At one end of the spectrum, SharePoint is implemented as a tightly-controlled technology project run by IT without the input of the key stakeholders who will be expected to use the platform. This can lead to a locked-down solution that provides little benefit to the organization.

    At the other end of the spectrum, SharePoint is rolled out as a wide-open platform with little governance and few policies in place to control how it is deployed and used, leading to SharePoint "sprawl" with documents, websites and wiki's created on the fly. This can make the solution just one more data store for IT to manage and the CFO to audit, not to mention another weak-point for security.

    "We often see SharePoint deployed in these two extremes," says Hartsel. "One is left so open that it becomes the Wild West. The other is locked down so tight that users can't really do much of anything to make them more productive or effective so they just don't use it. Neither is an optimum case."

    To solve these issues, ICC has developed Seven Steps for SharePoint Success to help organizations obtain the most from their SharePoint deployments and upgrades quickly and hitting as few potholes along the way as possible.

    Seven Steps for SharePoint Success:
    1. Establish and gather business requirements, priorities, and success criteria
    2. Map requirements to technology
    3. Develop a governance plan adhering to business needs
    4. Define technical architecture and implementation plan
    5. Execute plan and adapt when necessary
    6. Measure benefits and successes
    7. Drive user adoption through key stakeholders, outreach, and training

    "If you don't understand where your business is going and how your business can leverage SharePoint you can completely miss the mark," says Hartsel. "You want to drive business value. A lot of organizations are concerned that SharePoint will become just another Lotus Notes. Our roadmap makes sure that does not happen."

    "For some other enterprises, SharePoint has not been deployed widely, and there are often comments about owning SharePoint shelfware. In some cases, the problems are not due to SharePoint shortcomings, but rather the fault of the organization itself - poorly planned deployments, weak efforts at engaging the business and inability to do the organizational change management needed to achieve success," according to Gartner Analysts Mark R. Gilbert and Jeffrey Mann in their research paper SharePoint 2013: Good Progress but Missed Opportunities. "While these are organizational shortcomings, SharePoint doesn't do much to alleviate these issues. Clients often report that broad business adoption has not been easy to achieve, and they struggle with training, governance, cost management and migration."

    The list of why companies want SharePoint is as diverse as the companies themselves but often include:
    - Connecting across regions, LOBs, interests securely;
    - Capturing and sharing corporate knowledge;
    - Accelerating decision making;
    - Identifying subject matter experts;
    - Keep content fresh and relevant; and
    - Instituting a predictable information structure.

    ICC's SharePoint Enterprise Roadmap delivers on all of these diverse needs by bridging the gap between business leaders and IT, conveying the value of technology in terms of business needs, prioritizing business goals, and serving as a planning tool for current and future needs.

    "First we look to understand what you want to accomplish as a business, what your priorities are and what your pain points are and then we align SharePoint to those," says Hartsel. "That's why you want this Roadmap -- because that strategy helps you achieve your business goals and ROI faster."

    New York, NY, July 29, 2013 --(PR.com)-- When "City Girl Diaries" debuts Sunday night on the Style Network, TV lifestyle guru Raina Seitel will give viewers a peek into her life as a mom and girlfriend. But Raina is far more than that - she’s also the baroness of branded video content. She’s shared a Yopa! Greek Yogurt with Gabby Douglas, “ooed and aahed” over a Glidden Paint room makeover at Melissa Joan Hart’s house, and created salad parfaits with Tyson Chicken. It’s all captured through video that streams live on Facebook to interact with fans directly, and through satellite exchanges with broadcast and web journalists. Post-live no one misses out - snack-sized taped segments of Raina are distributed to bloggers, TV stations and even taxis.

    Raina is resident TV host for Vidicom, the leading video solutions agency for branded content. She’s just one of dozens of experts who work Vidicom's clients into every lifestyle vertical to fold brand messaging into the content of trusted authorities.

    “The brands control the messaging and our news teams create the story around it - a story that cuts through the clutter and engages consumers. The video tactic reaches viewers by streaming on a brand's Facebook page, where the expert faces off with journalists and bloggers via satellite or engages consumers directly,” said Vidicom founder Christy Ferer, a former network journalist, who has been creating branded content for 30 years.

    To get to the best storytellers, Vidicom is now partnering with the Experts Collective. Thomas P. Farley, a NY Post etiquette columnist better known as Mister Manners, founded the collective, which features a relationship expert, a mixologist, an organizer, and nine other specialists. "Our trend-savvy group of experts has specialties in every lifestyle category - from travel to fashion, wine to finance. We're media-vetted authors, bloggers and commentators with dedicated audiences looking to us to curate interesting and relevant content on their behalf. Partnering with lifestyle brands - whether through social or traditional media - is one of the most effective ways we can do so," said Farley. View the Experts Collective’s website at http://www.expertscollective.com

    Seitel says, "I think that experts lend credibility to a brand’s story. If an expert and a brand are the right fit, they push that message out because an expert’s following is loyal and will respond to products they endorse."

    Vidicom regularly blasts out editorial calendars to brands that can buy into an expert's segments. Each week dozens of brands sign up to put their messaging in the mouths of those who know best. Vidicom feeds that content far and wide - either on live streaming, broadcast or online platforms.

    CLEARWATER, FL--(Marketwired - July 29, 2013) -  ThreatTrack Security will unveil The Spyder Initiative -- the company's vision for the future of malware defense -- at Black Hat USA 2013, July 31 - Aug. 1 in Las Vegas. The Spyder Initiative is a development strategy for solving the biggest challenges cybersecurity professionals face today, including the creation of custom, automated remediation signatures in real-time to combat the most sophisticated malware targeting enterprises and government agencies worldwide.

    "Automated threat remediation is the next evolution of advanced malware defense," said ThreatTrack Security Chief Executive Officer Julian Waits, Sr. "Even the best malware detection solutions cannot remediate APTs, targeted attacks, Zero-day threats and other sophisticated malware assaulting corporate and government networks. ThreatTrack Security specializes in threat remediation, and our engineers working on The Spyder Initiative are developing solutions that will fundamentally change how Incident Response Teams and cybersecurity professionals eliminate sophisticated malware from their networks."

    The Future of Malware Defense

    While advanced security solutions like a malware analysis sandbox enable security professionals to identify and profile APTs, targeted attacks, Zero-day threats and other malware evading traditional signature-based detection, eliminating those threats remains a manual and time-consuming process. Through The Spyder Initiative, ThreatTrack Security is developing solutions that will create custom remediation signatures for any threat that targets a network, limiting the spread of infections and dramatically reducing the likelihood of devastating data breaches.

    The Spyder Initiative is also focused on enabling users to better understand the nature of the threats targeting their networks. This includes identifying countries of origin, malware type and infection methodology, malware behavioral mapping, persistent threat campaign tracking, and other intelligence necessary to better secure networks and stop emerging threats.

    Building upon proven malware behavioral analysis and threat remediation technologies, as well as new advances in real-time threat intelligence and predictive analytics, The Spyder Initiative will transform how organizations combat today's most advanced cyber threats. The first in a series of new cyber-defense solutions developed through The Spyder Initiative will be available in early 2014.

    Strengthening Today's Best Defense

    At Black Hat, ThreatTrack Security will unveil the latest enhancements to ThreatAnalyzer", the company's malware analysis sandbox. ThreatAnalyzer (formerly GFI SandBox) is today's best defense against APTs and targeted attacks. It swiftly and accurately vets suspicious files and URLs in a monitored sandbox environment to identify malicious activity and determine how threats execute, the system changes they make, the network traffic they generate and much more. Armed with this information, cybersecurity professionals can bolster their defenses by, for example, blocking malicious network traffic and undoing changes made to their systems.

    Used in the most sensitive environments -- including government security, defense and intelligence agencies -- ThreatAnalyzer is an integral component of the U.S. cybersecurity infrastructure.

    To learn more about The Spyder Initiative, visit ThreatTrack Security at booth 424 at Black Hat or go to www.TheSpyderInitiative.com. Learn more about ThreatAnalyzer at www.ThreatTrackSecurity.com.

    About ThreatTrack Security Inc.

    ThreatTrack Security specializes in helping organizations identify and stop Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs), targeted attacks and other sophisticated malware that are designed to evade the traditional cyber-defenses deployed by enterprises, and small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) around the world. The company develops advanced cybersecurity solutions that analyze, detect and remediate the latest malicious threats, including its ThreatAnalyzer malware behavioral analysis sandbox, VIPRE business and consumer antivirus software, and ThreatIQ real-time threat awareness service.

The whole idea of having a Personal Health Record is so you don't have to worry in case of a disaster, emergency or illness because you are prepared for anything. Having an MMR account helps people live happier, healthier lives."

    Guy Sebastian is an Australian pop, R&B, and soul singer-songwriter who is touring with Taylor Swift beginning December 2013.

    TAMPA, FL--(Marketwired - July 29, 2013) - TheDirectory.com, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: SEEK) an emerging leader in the Local search space, today announced that it has partnered with mobile industry leader Duda Mobile for its customer channel. The Company will be developing custom Mobile search applications for its directory channel.

    TheDirectory.com founder and CEO Scott Gallagher issued the following comment regarding today's press release: "Clearly the future of the Local search space will be based on a user's ability to find local businesses via Mobile devices. In fact according to a recent study, in just 18 months from today, 2015, more Americans will be accessing the web using a mobile device than by using a desktop computer. Add the fact that 70% of all mobile search's result in some sort of action within an hour of the search, a phone call, a store visit, an email, etc. The findings of the statistical data could not be clearer. The future of our business will be based to a very large extent on Mobile. Our build, buy or partner growth strategy is based on growing efficiently without sacrificing products or technology. Our ability to drive and convert mobile traffic for our clients into phone calls, appointments and visits as well as our ability to drive and convert traffic to our core Local directories will be of the utmost importance in this strategy. To that end we've selected Duda Mobile as our mobile partner for our customer channel. Over 2 million mobile websites have been built using the Duda Mobile platform. We've built many client websites using their platform, the search and traffic results have been impressive. Duda Mobile has the products we need to capitalize on this massive opportunity in the Local mobile search space."

    Gallagher continued, "We now have key partnerships in three of the most important areas of our business outside of directory listings: Local business listings management with Yext, a self-serve website development product with Yola and mobile anything with Duda Mobile. To develop these products internally would have cost many millions and an enormous amount of time. Our plan is to bundle these new products into our core Local business package. We expect to begin marketing and selling the new products almost immediately, probably within the next two weeks."

    About TheDirectory.com, Inc.

    ST. PAUL, MN--(Marketwired - July 29, 2013) - Panacea Healthcare Solutions, Inc., a leading provider of consulting, software and publications for the hospital industry, is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with Adventist Health to perform comprehensive ICD-10 Documentation & Coding Audits across 19 facilities for inpatient, outpatient and physician services.

    Panacea provides a broad range of end-to-end complementary ICD-10 services including data analytics through its I-10Focus reports, powered by OptumInsight, which identify those specific diagnosis and procedure codes having the highest probability for opportunity and risk related to potential code movement from ICD-9 to ICD-10. From there, specific patient records are selected for chart reviews.

    Panacea can also provide ongoing staff training and education. Panacea's proprietary technology combined with its in-house team of experienced AHIMA approved ICD-10-CM / PCS Trainers as well as financial consultants can facilitate ICD-10 preparation and implementation.

    "The October 1st, 2014 ICD-10 deadline is looming, and the industry's gaps in the ICD-transition are staggering," says Kim Charland, Senior Vice President of Clinical Consulting for Panacea Healthcare Solutions. According to a recent poll by conducted on July 2, 2013 by Panacea's ICD10monitor.com, 50 percent of hospitals surveyed have not yet performed data analytics to determine the financial impact of ICD-10.

    "This makes our relationship with Adventist Health very timely," says Fred Stodolak, CEO of Panacea Healthcare Solutions. "Their increased focus on ICD-10 readiness coupled with the comprehensive nature of the audit is a clear indicator that the time has finally come for hospitals and health systems to refocus their resources on ICD-10. It goes without saying that early preparation can lead to a smoother ICD-transition."
