Hikvision UK and Eagle Eye Networks Announce Preferred Technology Partnership
London, UK and Amsterdam, NL - Hikvision UK & Ireland, the world's largest manufacturer of video surveillance products and solutions, and Eagle Eye Networks, the leading global provider of cloud-based video surveillance solutions, today announced a technology partnership to deliver customers a seamless and cyber secure cloud video surveillance solution.
Dean Drako, CEO and founder of Eagle Eye Networks stated, "we are pleased to expand our global relationship with Hikvision by partnering with Hikvision UK to serve customers in England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland seeking a more cyber-secure surveillance solution."
Eagle Eye's Camera Cyber Lockdown blocks cameras from communicating with the Internet, blocks attacks from reaching cameras, and will not allow any Trojans ex-filtration. The Camera Cyber Lockdown feature greatly increases the security of video surveillance systems, reduces risk, and minimizes camera maintenance.
While the Eagle Eye Cloud Security Camera VMS works with hundreds of manufacturer's cameras, the Hikvision UK partnership is a valuable benefit to customers who don't have the IT resources to constantly monitor and address cyber threats entering their network through devices attached to their surveillance system.
"We are also excited about the partnership with Eagle Eye Networks", stated Jens Berthelsen, Global Partner Alliance Manager for Hikvision Europe. "Eagle Eye Networks is the leader in secure, cloud-based video surveillance solutions and the combination of our cameras with their cloud provides great scalability and price/performance."
Eagle Eye Networks' investments to build a global footprint of Data Centres has enabled its customers to easily deploy surveillance video systems at their sites around the world while maintaining consistency and cyber security.
The United Kingdom Preferred Technology Partnership announcement follows the recent news of Hikvision USA and Eagle Eye Networks working together to integrate HD-TVI camera technology in to the Eagle Eye Security Cloud VMS, enabling customers and channel partners to reduce operating costs by utilising existing coaxial cabling while upgrading to high-definition video surveillance systems.
Rishi Lodhia, Eagle Eye Networks' Managing Director for EMEA, is leading the Eagle Eye Networks growth program in the region and noted the extraordinary alignment between Hikvision UK's and Eagle Eye Networks' reseller programs. "The Hikvision dealers in the UK are an extremely capable group of industry professionals and they're very attentive to cyber security and GDPR compliance. The use of Hikvision cameras and Turbo recorders with Eagle Eye Networks' cloud bridges and subscriptions is a future-proof marriage."
Hikvision is the world's leading provider of innovative video surveillance products and solutions.

Swedish Authorities Strengthen Country's Preparedness with UMS, an Everbridge Company: Entire population capable of receiving SMS alerts during a crisis
OSLO, NORWAY – June 12, 2018–Everbridge, Inc. (NASDAQ: EVBG), the global leader in critical event management and enterprise safety software applications, announced today that it has expanded the capabilities of the national alerting system that it is powering for the country of Sweden. Going forward, residents and visitors in Sweden will be able to receive SMS notifications on their mobile phones if they reside within an area where sudden events such as fire, extreme weather or a terror attack occur. All mobile operators in Sweden can now send location-based SMS alerts provided by Unified Messaging Systems (UMS), an Everbridge Company, with an "Important Message to the Public" from SOS Alarm, the system operator.
"The mobile phone is the best tool for reaching the population and for providing important information about how to act during major accidents and other severe events. This is a significant step forward that all mobile operators are now connected to this service, which is an important part of strengthening Swedish crisis preparedness and creating a safer Sweden for all," said Kenny Lorentzon, Head of Emergency Response Department at SOS Alarm.
UMS' Location Based Alerting System (LBAS™) is a solution that allows authorities to alert people in a specific geographic area in a quick and efficient manner. All mobile phones located within a defined area can be notified using location information from the mobile network without having to do anything to receive the messages. LBAS makes real-time dynamic alerting a reality.
"Having a national warning solution implemented in Sweden demonstrates a significant modernization of emergency preparedness services. The mobile phone is the first channel most people turn to when searching for information. SMS notification is both precise and time saving and can help save lives and keep businesses running when a critical event occurs," said Espen Gylvik, General Manager at Unified Messaging Systems, an Everbridge Company.
Following legislative changes that began on July 1, 2017, SOS Alarm now has the ability to send SMS alerts to anyone who resides in a defined geographic area in Sweden. Previously, Sweden only had the opportunity to send alerts to mobile phones 'registered' within an affected area. Neither UMS nor SOS Alarm stores data from mobile operators and the information transmitted cannot be used in other contexts.
About UMS, an Everbridge Company
UMS AS (Unified Messaging Systems), an Everbridge Company, is an Oslo based technology company with international operations. The company supports more than 1,200 customers worldwide with systems for public notifications. The company was founded in 1998, and was acquired by Everbridge in 2018, and is established as an industry leader within the area of critical communication and population alerting systems.
Everbridge, Inc. (NASDAQ: EVBG) is a global software company that provides enterprise software applications that automate and accelerate organizations' operational response to critical events in order to keep people safe and businesses running faster. During public safety threats such as active shooter situations, terrorist attacks or severe weather conditions, as well as critical business events including IT outages, cyber-attacks or other incidents such as product recalls or supply-chain interruptions, over 3,800 global customers rely on the company's Critical Event Management Platform to quickly and reliably aggregate and assess threat data, locate people at risk and responders able to assist, automate the execution of pre-defined communications processes through the secure delivery to over 100 different communication devices, and track progress on executing response plans. The company's platform sent over 2 billion messages in 2017 and offers the ability to reach over 500 million people in more than 200 countries and territories, including the entire mobile populations on a country-wide scale in Sweden, the Netherlands, the Bahamas, Singapore, Greece, Cambodia, and a number of the largest states in India.

General Dynamics Satellite Simulator Trains Space Mission Operators from Across the U.S. Department of Defense
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz -- General Dynamics Mission Systems received a contract from the U.S. Navy to restore and maintain a satellite system simulator for students at the Naval Postgraduate School, Spacecraft Research and Design Center / Adaptive Optics Center of Excellence. The simulator, a model of a Navy Fleet Satellite (FLTSAT) communications satellite, will help students hone their skills in managing the technical aspects of space systems including satellite command, control and communications and troubleshooting satellite and constellation anomalies.
"The General Dynamics Naval Satellite Operations Center (NAVSOC) team has worked with the Naval Postgraduate School for more than 10 years. Updating the simulator to perform just like the actual system is a tremendous training opportunity for these advanced degree students," said Manny Mora, a vice president and general manager of General Dynamics Mission Systems. "They will have a realistic, 'hands-on' learning experience, while we support the development of future U.S. Department of Defense space engineers and leaders."
The General Dynamics team also supports instructors teaching a wide range of space-related topics to Naval Postgraduate School students from across the U.S. Department of Defense. The academic programs include mastery of the technical aspects of space systems including design, development, installation and maintenance of spacecraft, space payloads, supporting earth stations, terminals and command, control and communications connectivity.
The General Dynamics NAVSOC team is located at Naval Air Station, Point Mugu, Calif., supporting the Navy's operation of the FLTSAT and Ultra-high Frequency Follow-on communication satellite constellations.
Recently, the team completed all on-orbit testing for the Navy's new Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) satellite communications system before it was turned over to the Navy for day-to-day operations.
The Naval Postgraduate School is a graduate university offering masters and doctoral degrees in more than 70 fields of study to the U.S. Armed Forces, Department of Defense civilians and international partners.

NYT: 'Firefox Is Back. It's Time to Give It a Try.'
Another high-profile endorsement for Firefox -- this time from the lead consumer technology writer for The New York Times. (Alternate link here).
The web has reached a new low. It has become an annoying, often toxic and occasionally unsafe place to hang out. More important, it has become an unfair trade: You give up your privacy online, and what you get in return are somewhat convenient services and hyper-targeted ads. That's why it may be time to try a different browser.
Remember Firefox...? About two years ago, six Mozilla employees were huddled around a bonfire one night in Santa Cruz, Calif., when they began discussing the state of web browsers. Eventually, they concluded there was a "crisis of confidence" in the web. "If they don't trust the web, they won't use the web," Mark Mayo, Mozilla's chief product officer, said in an interview.... After testing Firefox for the last three months, I found it to be on a par with Chrome in most categories. In the end, Firefox's thoughtful privacy features persuaded me to make the switch and make it my primary browser.
The Times cites privacy features like Firefox's "Facebook Container," which prevents Facebook from tracking you after you've left their site.
While both Chrome and Firefox have tough security (including sandboxing), Cooper Quintin, a security researcher for the Electronic Frontier Foundation, tells the Times that Google "is fundamentally an advertising company, so it's unlikely that they will ever have a business interest in making Chrome more privacy friendly."
"Open source maintainers are exhausted and rarely paid," writes TechCrunch's editorial manager. "A new generation wants to change the economics."
An anonymous reader quotes their report:
Tidelift is designed to offer assurances "around areas like security, licensing, and maintenance of software," CEO Donald Fischer explained... In addition, Tidelift handles the mundane tasks of setting up open source for commercialization such as handling licensing issues... Open Collective wants to open source the monetization of open source itself. Open Collective is a non-profit platform that provides tools to "collectives" to receive money while also offering mechanisms to allow the members of those collectives to spend their money in a democratic and transparent way.
TechCrunch warns that "It's not just that people are free riding, it's often that they don't even realize it. Software engineers can easily forget just how much craftsmanship has gone into the open source code that powers the most basic of applications...
"If you work at a for-profit company, take the lead in finding a way to support the code that allows you to do your job so efficiently. The decentralization and volunteer spirit of the open source community needs exactly the same kind of decentralized spirit in every financial contributor. Sustainability is each of our jobs, every day."
George Lucas's Terrible Idea for Star Wars Episodes 7-9
In an interview with James Cameron, George Lucas reveals what he'd planed for the final three Star Wars films:
"[The next three 'Star Wars' films] were going to get into a microbiotic world," he told Cameron. "There's this world of creatures that operate differently than we do. I call them the Whills. And the Whills are the ones who actually control the universe. They feed off the Force...." In terms of his storytelling, Lucas regarded individuals as "vehicles for the Whills to travel around in... And the conduit is the midi-chlorians. The midi-chlorians are the ones that communicate with the Whills. The Whills, in a general sense, they are the Force."
Lucas is confident that had he kept his company, the Whills-focused films "would have been done. Of course, a lot of the fans would have hated it, just like they did 'Phantom Menace' and everything, but at least the whole story from beginning to end would be told."
Lucas acknowledges in the interview that "Everybody hated it in 'Phantom Menace' [when] we started talking about midi-chlorians," prompting one Ars Technica editor to add "Because it was a really dumb idea." He speculates that if the final three Star Wars movies followed Lucas's original plan, "Imagine, if you can, our heroes shrinking down like the Fantastic Voyage to go meet some midi-chlorians."
Knowing Lucas's plans for the franchise "should make every Star Wars fan send a note of gratitude to whoever at Disney decided to buy the franchise and take it away and out from under Lucas' control."
Can Two Injections of Tuberculosis Vaccine Cure Diabetes?
An anonymous reader quotes Fortune:
The causes of Type 1 diabetes can be significantly reversed over several years with just two injections of a common tuberculosis vaccine injected a few weeks apart, researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital announced Thursday in a paper published in the journal Nature. Researchers found a substantial reduction in the blood-sugar marker HbA1c that is used to diagnose diabetes.
All subjects with diabetes who received the vaccine had a 10% reduction after three years and 18% after four years, bringing them below the cutoff point for a clinical diagnosis. Those subjects followed for a full eight years retained most of the reduction. Participants who received a placebo or were in a reference group that followed normal diabetic management saw their blood sugar measurement rise by a few percentage points during the same periods followed... A 10% reduction in Hb1Ac reduces the risk of death as a result of diabetes by 21%, and drops by 37% other complications, like blindness and loss of feeling in hands and feet, according to a 2000 study.
Scientists Genetically Engineer Pigs Immune To Costly Disease
An anonymous reader quotes a report from The Guardian: The trial, led by the University of Edinburgh's Roslin Institute, showed that the pigs were completely immune to porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS), a disease that is endemic across the globe and costs the European pig industry nearly $2 billion in pig deaths and decreased productivity each year.
Pigs infected with PRRS are safe to eat but the virus causes the animals breathing problems, causes deaths in piglets and can cause pregnant sows to lose their litter. There is no effective cure or vaccine, and despite extensive biosecurity measures about 30% of pigs in England are thought to be infected at any given time. After deleting a small section of DNA that leaves pigs vulnerable to the disease, the animals showed no symptoms or trace of infection when intentionally exposed to the virus and when housed for an extended period with infected siblings. The study has been published in the Journal of Virology.
Bethesda Sues Warner Bros, Calls Its Westworld Game 'Blatant Rip-Off' of Fallout Shelter
Bethesda, the video game publisher behind Fallout and The Elder Scrolls, is suing Warner Bros. and Fallout Shelter co-developer Behavior Interactive over the recently released Westworld, alleging that the mobile game based on HBO's TV series is a "blatant rip-off" of Fallout Shelter. Polygon reports: In a suit filed in a Maryland U.S. District Court, Bethesda alleges that Westworld -- developed by Behaviour and released this week for Android and iOS -- "has the same or highly similar game design, art style, animations, features and other gameplay elements" as Fallout Shelter. Fallout Shelter was originally released in 2015 for mobile devices. The game was later ported to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One.
Bethesda said in its suit that Behaviour uses "the same copyrighted computer code created for Fallout Shelter in Westworld," alleging that a bug evident in an early version of Fallout Shelter (which was later fixed) also appears in Westworld. Bethesda alleges the companies "copied Fallout Shelter's features and then made cosmetic modifications for Westworld's 'western' theme."
Supreme Court Backs Award of Overseas Patent Damages
schwit1 quotes a report from Reuters: The U.S. Supreme Court ruled on Friday that companies can recover profits lost because of the unauthorized use of their patented technology abroad in a victory for Schlumberger NV, the world's largest oilfield services provider. The decision expands the ability of patent owners to recover foreign-based damages, increasing the threat posed by certain infringement lawsuits in the United States.
Internet-based companies and others had expressed concern that extending patent damages beyond national borders would expose U.S. high-technology firms to greater patent-related risks abroad. U.S. patent law generally applies only domestically, but Schlumberger said that since the law protects against infringement that occurs when components of a patented invention are supplied from the U.S. for assembly abroad, it should be fully compensated for the infringement, including any lost foreign sales. The high court agreed.
Atari Accuses Journalists of Making Stuff Up So They Produce Recordings of the Interview
An anonymous reader quotes a report from The Register: Legendary games company Atari has accused a Register reporter of making stuff up and acting unprofessionally following an interview earlier this year in San Francisco at the launch of its new games console, the Atari VCS. In that article, we were critical of the fact that the machine did not work, and that its chief operating officer Michael Arzt, whom we spoke to, appeared unable to answer even the most basic questions about the product. We were shown "engineering design models" that were said to be "real" yet turned out did not work, and pointed out as much.
In the article, we wrote: "What happens if we plug this into our laptop, we ask Mike. I don't know, he says. Will it work? I don't know. If we plug it into a different games machine, will it work? No. So it's custom hardware and software? I don't know about that." Presumably this is where Atari feels that the reporter "wrote what he wanted instead of what was discussed with him." Which makes this clip tough to explain -- and we'll give you a clue: your humble Reg hack is the one with the British accent... This is a clip of Atari having no idea about its own controller. The Register goes on to provide more examples of how Atari "is so full of crap..." The accusations started via the company's Facebook page, where a potential buyer of an Atari VCS posted a link to the Reg article and asked the company to explain it. The full interview between the journalist and Atari can be found here.
