    Hamburg, Germany, August 18, 2013 --( Companies and organizations are slowly waking up to the enormous value that enterprise social knowledge networking can unlock. With Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 and 2013 Collaborative Knowledge Management becomes an approach to enable organizational intelligence in larger companies or organizations, but SMEs as well. Knowledge Management and Social Networking are key components to establish a new way of working together. As Forrester Research and also Gartner noted is their studies, 3rd party solutions from Certified Microsoft Partners like Layer2 can close still existing gaps with SharePoint Knowledge Management and add even more value to the already existing platform to increase benefits and improve end-user adaption.

    Layer2 highly improves Enterprise Metadata Management with SharePoint

    Centrally managed metadata or enterprise taxonomies are the key to success with knowledge management projects based on SharePoint. The Layer2 Taxonomy Manager for SharePoint highly improves the default metadata management features with advanced import, export, update and deployment features. To make use of commercially available taxonomies the widely used XML-based SKOS format is fully supported for data interchange. The solution also adds content classification rules to terms managed in the SharePoint Term Store as a pre-consideration to simplify content categorization.

    Automatic content classification and categorization with SharePoint

    The Layer2 Tag Suggester for SharePoint makes it as easy as possible to add metadata to SharePoint items or documents. Content classification rules managed directly in the Term Store are used to make content-based suggestions to guide users while assigning metadata. The Layer2 Auto Tagger for SharePoint goes far beyond this: Content is classified completely automatically with metadata, based on rules, existing content properties, item context and document text content. This is a great step forward for companies that have to classify large document sets, for example after migration to SharePoint.

    Benefit from content classification with advanced navigation features and better findability in SharePoint

    Out-of-the-box SharePoint already provides great features to profit from content classification, e.g. metadata-based list filters or faceted search. The Layer2 Tag Navigation Web Part for SharePoint adds additional navigation options to the SharePoint default. The tree-structured enterprise taxonomies can directly be used for content discovery. Users can simply browse the corporate knowledge - independent of the storage location.

    The Layer2 Tag Directory Web Part for SharePoint offers some kind of index or glossary of corporate keywords based on the Term Store. This type of index is well-known from technical books, now available for SharePoint. “The Tag Directory can help employees to find a common corporate language and understanding based on the enterprise taxonomy. The automatically built index of terms also allows to find and share content very fast alphabetically – a must-have for each SharePoint portal”, Frank Daske, Product Manager at Layer2, explains the features and benefits of the add-on.

    Also available is the Layer2 Tag Cloud Web Part for SharePoint which allows to find content by the importance or usage count of the terms assigned. The Layer2 Related Content Web Part for SharePoint - as a next generation, search-driven SharePoint application - displays related content completely automatically, depending on page context. Most users might know this feature from Amazon or other B2C portals. Contacts, related documents, similar news, further links etc. can be presented automatically always up-to-date and easily be found by users with one click.

    External content seamlessly included in SharePoint Knowledge Management

    Using the Layer2 Business Data List Connector for SharePoint or the Layer2 Cloud Connector for Office 365 it is possible to seamlessly integrate almost any external enterprise data sources like file shares, database records or ERP/CRM items with the SharePoint Knowledge Management and Social Collaboration features.

    The Layer2 Knowledge Management Suite for SharePoint is successfully used by the NATO C3 AGENCY (NC3A), the World Bank, the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and others. Implementation partners and resellers benefit from the Layer2 Partner Program with free training, license discounts and free NFR editions. The solution is available for Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 and 2013 as free shareware download after registration from the vendor website

    Henley on Thames, United Kingdom, August 18, 2013 --( Requirements

    ArcelorMittal was looking for a communication tool to reach their employees spread over seven factories nationwide. Many of the staff are not office based so effective health and safety and corporate communication messages are difficult to convey. In addition the content needed to be real-time and/or remotely configurable, and finally the reliability of the solution was paramount.

    What is installed

    46 ONELAN Millennium Net-top-box (NTB) 6000s have been installed in the factories, driving 45 46” large format displays and one 2m/2m LED outdoor display.

    A ONELAN Millennium NTB-6000P publishes content to the subscribers media players in each factory.

    10 layouts are used, rotated at one minute intervals. There are also RSS feeds for live news, weather and ArcelorMittal’s stock exchange numbers.

    Safety and factory figures (custom programmed) are also displayed as well as user updateable content, ad-hoc content and a live webcam from the CEO’s office.

    There is great emphasis placed on health and safety.

    Virtual Ox

    A key feature of ArcelorMittal’s solution is their Virtual Ox. The Ox displays safety statistics from each location on different parts of the Virtual Ox and acts as an important incentive. If a factory can go 50 days without a serious injury or death then an Ox is roasted, with the winning factory employees getting the best cuts.

    The Virtual Ox is a flash-based video triggered by Java Script and formatted with CSS. Safety data is supplied daily on an Excel spreadsheet posted by ArcelorMittal’s Head Office on SharePoint. A ONELAN Data Collection (DCE) is programmed to look at certain cells in the latest Excel spreadsheet by date, and then update the Java Script to trigger a change in the layout.

    The whole network is run from ArcelorMittal’s head office in Vanderbijlpark.
    A ONELAN Digital Signage Manager (DSM) monitors and updates all the NTBs nationwide via the company's private LAN.

    End user feedback

    The network is very stable and requires little maintenance despite the harsh conditions it operates under.

    The objective of the digital signage is to reduce fatalities and encourage health and safety continues on an upward trend.

    ArcelorMittal views this project as a success and ROI can be measured in human lives.

    ONELAN is a global leader of digital signage and IPTV solutions and a proud investor in UK engineering talent. The company develops high quality, innovative solutions for all types of screen-based communications for applications including retail, advertising networks, corporate communications, education, health, public signage and hospitality.

    PHILADELPHIA, PA, August 19, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Most individuals have some idea of the sheer volume of people who visit Facebook, each and every day--but according to social media buff Rich Gorman, the true extent of Facebook usage may be even more than is typically imagined. As Reuters reports, Facebook has unveiled some surprising new statistics, releasing regional data for the first time in its history. Among the statistics gleaned from this new information is the fact that a third of all Americans--that is, 128 million people--visit Facebook daily. In the UK, meanwhile, Facebook receives visits from 24 million people each day. Now, Rich Gorman has released a new press statement, commenting on this startling new data.

    "What this data reveals is just how much Facebook has become a matter of daily routine for so many of us," Rich Gorman says. "It's not just that one in three Americans has a Facebook account. One in three Americans actually use the site on a daily basis! They head to Facebook habitually, just as they might check their e-mail or turn on the TV in the evenings."

    Reuters notes that Facebook has released this new data as it ramps up to begin selling TV-style ads; currently, the company is courting big companies and attempting to persuade them to earmark top advertising dollars to be used for Facebook-specific commercial spots.

    Reuters quotes Carolyn Everson, the vice president of global marketing solutions for Facebook, who says the company is excited to prove to advertisers exactly how many people they can reach through Facebook commercial spots.

    "Certainly, this data shows that Facebook offers a level of market penetration that even many TV networks cannot match," Rich Gorman opines. "Plus, in theory, Facebook will offer more ways to segment and target specific demographics, something TV is only so good at. The appeal to advertisers should be natural."

    Indeed, Reuters notes that Facebook commercials can provide a company with exposure that TV cannot necessarily match. The much-hyped season premiere of AMC's "Breaking Bad" brought in 6 million viewers, the article notes, while Facebook boasts more than a billion users across the world.

    "Of course, that 1 billion number is a little misleading, because it does not offer any real, regional data breakdowns," Rich Gorman cautions. "With that said, Facebook is taking some good steps forward as it seeks to explain its regional usage data more thoroughly."

    Facebook's new commercials could introduce a paradigm shift in the world of advertising; here, Reuters offers some further facts and figures. "Television commands the largest share of advertising money spent in the United States at 39 percent, according to eMarketer research, which estimated that $66.3 million in would go to TV this year," the article says. "Digital advertising represents about 25 percent of estimated advertising spending this year, at $42 million."

    "Obviously, there are some real opportunities for companies to boost their commercial ROI by going after the bigger numbers that Facebook can now offer," Rich Gorman concludes.


    Rich Gorman is a leader and an authority in the field of direct response marketing. Through prolific blogging and consulting work, he has become known as a true industry thought leader. Gorman regularly opines on issues related to online marketing, business leadership, search engine technology, and online reputation management. Gorman is also a social network enthusiast, and frequently opines on the latest developments in the world of social marketing.

    PHILADELPHIA, PA, August 19, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The University of Management and Technology is an online higher education institution that helps its students receive meaningful degrees in areas like public administration, information technology, and computer science. It believes that technology is a promising career path for many of its students and children still in school; however, not many schools are actively teaching useful skills like computer programming and hardware design. According to an article on the Star Tribune, programming languages like Java, C+, and Python are crucial to teach in order to prepare students for a career in technology.

    "Coding and learning programming languages are useful skills for professions outside of technology as well," comments a representative from the University of Management and Technology. "Our degrees in engineering, IT, and computer science are aimed to help students combine skills in math, science, and computers in order to demystify how they work."

    The article claims that approximately 1.4 million computer-related jobs will open up within the next decade. Following recent trends, not even a third of those jobs will have qualified graduates to fill the positions. A lot of elementary and high schools, though, are starting to take advantage of apps and computer science classes to help kids learn how to program. Using teaching aids is important in terms of budgeting; it is costly for schools to hire on full or part time programming teachers. Instead, they depend on computers to do the work for them.

    The article says that programming is like "looking under the hood of your car." Not everyone who is car-savvy becomes a mechanic, but the life skill is useful when a tire goes flat, a transmission dies, or any other car-related problem occurs. Today, computers are necessary for business success in virtually every industry. The Internet has also seen a rise in independent entrepreneurs in various capacities who utilize Web-based storefronts and social media to market, sell, and distribute products.

    "Just about every job or profession can use computers to help business," the University of Management and Technology representative says. "Becoming computer-savvy has its own benefits as well. For one, you are more likely to find a job in any industry by illustrating your proficiency with technology. Businesses often do not have the time or money to train every employee how to troubleshoot basic problems, create a portfolio in Microsoft Office, or edit a website -- that's what IT employees are for, but everyone can benefit from taking coding classes."

    Coding, like math, is a logic game full of punctuation, words, and numbers. Schools use apps that combine elementary lessons in coding with animation and visuals in order to keep students involved and interested. Not every person uses trigonometry on a day-to-day basis, though basic math fundamentals are useful to balance ledgers, pay taxes, and decide sales prices. Currently, students are hard-pressed to find coding classes outside of college. A lot of these students take advantage of online computer courses through schools like the University of Management and Technology.


    The University of Management and Technology has offered premium online courses in a variety of subjects since 1998. It focuses on designing intuitive, affordable, and applicable curriculums so students busy with work, families, and other duties can fulfill the requirements for graduation. It also offers cutting-edge computer science courses.

    La Porte City, IA, August 19, 2013 --( A small Iowa company is offering an easy to deploy live online scoreboard for local games anywhere in the country. Keeping your fans up-to-date from both home and away games has always been a challenge.

    Now, with The Virtual Scoreboard Network (VSBN), coaches, athletic directors, fan-club members, PTOs -- or virtually anyone from the community can spontaneously deploy a live scoreboard.

    Scoreboard setup on the VSBN network is quick, easy, and free. Users can then publish the scoreboard ID so that the local fans can view it directly from the VSBN website.

    Alternatively, the system provides embedding code so that you can embed the scoreboard directly into your team or school website. The VSBN's own hometown team uses the system on a website called "The Knights Network" - where the virtual scoreboard exists alongside the game's internet audio broadcast.

    Some radio stations are now considering the Virtual Scoreboard as a visual offering alongside their audio broadcast. When embedded in the station's website, it draws listeners to the website, and brings more ad revenue potential as listeners click-through.

    Keep your remote fan base up-to-date for this football season with The Virtual Scoreboard Network.

    Luxembourg, Luxembourg, August 19, 2013 --( NoMachine has released the second beta version of its NoMachine 4 software bringing it one step closer to the final line of remote access products for both personal and enterprise use. This new version for Windows, Mac and Linux, besides consolidating stability and reliability of the previous beta, marks the last of the beta releases with the final 4 release being scheduled for September 18th, 2013.

    Among the most evident new features there are:

    Running sessions via web browser is now an add-on option thanks to the Portal Server package. It can be installed on any of the NoMachine software editions and includes a small Apache web server ready to go. It's configured to work-out-of-the-box to provide access to the computer on which it is installed. Depending on the host OS, users can access either the physical or virtual desktop.

    An even easier installation: now any of the NoMachine packages install a fully operative environment ready to accept connections as a server or to run connections as a player. No additional post-configuration steps are required. Just change the configuration at any time when you need it.

    Installing the software: instructions can be found at

    What packages include:

    - NoMachine packages installs the player (the local application to connect to desktops) and all the server components necessary to let you connect from remote to the physical desktop of the machine where you are installing.

    - All products, except NoMachine, support SSH connections.

    - Virtual desktops and custom applications are available with NoMachine Workstation and Enterprise Server for Linux.

    - To support web sessions, install also the Portal Server package.

    - The NoMachine Enteprise Client packages installs only the player.

    How to run a session
    From the Program menu on your machine, launch NoMachine and create a new connection from the UI. Specify the IP or hostname of the machine you want to connect to and provide valid credentials to log-in to the account there. NoMachine must be installed on both sides.

    How to run a web session
    Install the NoMachine Portal package on a NoMachine server installation. Then Point your browser to http://serverHost:4080 where serverHost is either the IP or hostname of the machine where you have installed NoMachine.

    Please note that the installation comes with a self-signed SSL certificate intended to be a sample, which doesn't grant a secure connection. In order to secure your web application, please replace the SSL Certificate File, namely /usr/NX/etc/keys/host/ht_host_rsa_key.crt and the SSL Certificate Key File /usr/NX/etc/keys/host/ht_host_rsa_key with your own.

    Toronto, Canada, August 19, 2013 --( There is an ever-increasing competition among online marketing websites to outdo each other. One of the recurring names doing the rounds in the online marketing circle is Go Buzz Me − the name that was launched late last year. A word of mouth marketing website, Go Buzz Me has announced the launch of five special attractions for its users in the form of an attractive package called GoBuzzer. GoBuzzer features will include self-service advertising, live tracking of advertisement or broadcast, high impact advertising, direct email campaigning, and generation of social traffic.

    Market pundits are of the opinion that Go Buzz Me is trying hard to offer every imaginable service possible by incorporating almost every marketing mantra in the book. From a humble beginning of building up business networks within its platform, Go Buzz Me has come a long way to make its name counted as one of the leading marketing platforms in the contemporary online market. The official announcement of the latest features is due late August. Some of these features, though in beta phase, are already live on the website and are generating great excitement among the users.

    The GoBuzzer features will allow Go Buzz Me registered users to advertise their products or services. They can choose either self-service advertising by broadcasting their business on the website or the high impact advertising option by displaying eye-catching banners on the Go Buzz Me website. Analyzing the growing popularity of Go Buzz Me, market experts believe that registered users will doubly benefit from the GoBuzzer High Impact Advertising Program. GoBuzzer has ensured that high impact ads occupy a prominent place on the web page to attract maximum relevant traffic.

    Another exciting feature in this upcoming launch is the tracking report accompanying every ad campaign. This report will display the total number of views and clicks for each broadcast or advertisement. This useful feature will enable users to measure the success of their ads and help them decide their plan of action to create more business leads.

    Traffic from social networks like Facebook, Google Plus, YouTube, Twitter and so on can be directed to Go Buzz Me by sharing posts, updates, or commenting on other’s updates on the Go Buzz Me platform through a wide range of social networks. To be accurate, Go Buzz Me will allow users to connect with 339 social networks. If used judiciously, this great feature can generate millions of social traffic and draw unique visitors to the users’ websites.

    However, the one feature that is expected to generate more hype is the GoBuzzer Direct Email campaign. The GoBuzzer Direct Email boasts of 100 percent CAN-SPAM compliance and 100 percent delivery for email campaigns, which is extremely vital for any successful email marketing campaign. In addition, the GoBuzzer Direct Email will have access to over 200 million opt-in email records.

    Overall, it appears that Go Buzz Me has tried putting in the very best of every marketing feature in the garb of the GoBuzzer package.

    BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - August 20, 2013) - Sophos today announced Sophos Server Protection -- an easy to use and flexible server antivirus solution that defends data without sacrificing performance. It is the latest entry in a Sophos arsenal that provides simple, yet complete security for servers, the network and end-user devices.

    Increased migration to virtual servers and the ever-growing threat of attack on critical data are presenting new challenges to IT professionals, as they look to maintain high performance and density of servers, without compromising on security. Sophos Server Protection addresses these challenges by integrating agentless antivirus for vShield and full antivirus clients for Windows, Linux, Mac and UNIX into one centrally managed product.

    "Servers need the best protection against malware, but managing that protection while maintaining server performance across a diverse environment has inevitably increased complexity and demands on time," said John Shaw, vice president of product management, Sophos. "We've delivered on what matters -- server performance and security. Sophos Server Protection provides a single, easy to use management console to assign policies, view alerts and generate reports across platforms. Even licensing, often the bane of IT professionals, is straightforward: one server, one license, any platform."

    Standalone and virtual systems use fewer resources with Sophos Server Protection than with conventional antivirus products. Agentless scanning via vShield Endpoint prevents scan and update storms, automatically protecting every Windows virtual machine on the host through a centralized virtual security appliance. Systems without vShield benefit from a full featured client optimized for performance. Advanced features, including HIPS, application control, and device control, are also included for select platforms.

    Sophos Server Protection supports a broad range of server and virtualization platforms, including Windows, Linux, UNIX, Mac, Hyper-V, vSphere/ESX/ESXi and XenServer. It provides proven protection against known and unknown threats, supported by real-time communication with SophosLabs. The Windows client offers additional layers of security, including HIPS, application control and patch assessment.

    "Sophos Server Protection is server security made simple, because at Sophos we believe good security shouldn't have to require the undivided attention of the IT team to make it work. Sophos Server Protection secures your business's critical assets, without sacrificing performance or adding unnecessary complexity," concluded Shaw.

    Sophos Server Protection will be showcased at VMworld, which takes place in San Francisco between August 25 and 29. Sophos is a VMware Elite Technology Alliance Partner.

    About Sophos 
    More than 100 million users in 150 countries rely on Sophos' complete security solutions as the best protection against complex threats and data loss. Simple to deploy, manage, and use, Sophos' award-winning encryption, endpoint security, web, email, mobile and network security solutions are backed by SophosLabs -- a global network of threat intelligence centers.

    The Future of Malware Defense

    At Black Hat USA 2013 in July, ThreatTrack Security previewed its new development strategy -- The Spyder Initiative.

    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 early next year.
