Trend Micro Tackles Data Protection and Consumerization Needs with Integrated OfficeScan Release
Streamlines the growing complexities of threat protection, data loss prevention, and device management.
CUPERTINO, Calif., Oct. 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Trend Micro Inc. (TYO: 4704;TSE: 4704) today announced enhancements to its OfficeScan, Mobile Security and Data Protection solutions, which includes the ability to integrate management of security, data protection, and mobile management. This allows IT organizations to reduce the costs and complexity required to protect their users, data and computing assets.
While businesses have worked diligently to reduce incoming IT threats in recent years, they have struggled to keep up with emerging 'multi-faceted' security concerns related to data loss, virtualization, cloud migration, mobile device management and consumerization. A recent Trend Micro study shows that IT departments serving more than 200 users have added security point solutions at an alarming rate - in some cases they have a dozen types of software, each with a different directory, administration console and server.
"We have quickly found ourselves in a situation where IT organizations must consolidate their security solutions, or risk errors and solution gaps due to this added complexity," said Ron Clarkson, Trend Micro's senior director, endpoint business. "The good news is, Trend Micro has anticipated this situation and provides a reliable way out of it."
Helping Companies Efficiently Navigate Today's Top Emerging Security Concerns
Trend Micro's new software releases provide businesses with a sensible consolidation path based on its award-winning Trend Micro(TM) OfficeScan(TM) endpoint security framework. They can now benefit from a single client and management infrastructure, single vendor source for software updates and upgrades, and the enhanced ability to correlate threat intelligence across the network for greater visibility and control. Below are details of the new solution updates from Trend Micro organized by the security initiatives which they support:
Data Loss Prevention. Trend Micro OfficeScan 10.6 includes an optional data loss prevention (DLP) plug-in that enables customers to deploy endpoint DLP in minutes rather than months, resulting in quick wins on corporate data security objectives. This helps organizations avoid costly fines and data breaches by ensuring that sensitive data is handled properly.
Consumerization of IT. Trend Micro(TM) Mobile Security 7.1 adds support for Apple iPad and iPhone, as well as Android and Blackberry devices, with an expanded set of mobile device management capabilities, all integrated within the OfficeScan management environment. Trend Micro Mobile Security 7.1 helps organizations overcome their security, data protection and support risks so they can realize the increased productivity, business agility, customer and employee satisfaction that the consumerization of IT can bring.
Endpoint Encryption. Trend Micro(TM) Endpoint Encryption 3.1 provides strong encryption for any device that may carry sensitive corporate data including laptops, USB drives and removable media. Real-time auditing capabilities support "evidence of control" requirements during audits and following a data breach. In addition, Trend Micro Endpoint Encryption's advanced pre-boot authentication provides the highest level of security to encrypted devices.
Trend Micro Endpoint Encryption 3.1, Trend Micro Mobile Security 7.1, and OfficeScan 10.6 are available today. Contact your Trend Micro sales representative or authorized reseller for pricing and purchasing.
"As a critical arm of the Kuwaiti government, the Ministry of Health is tasked with keeping the nation healthy. The IT infrastructure of the ministry is amongst the best in the region and Trend Micro's OfficeScan 10.6 is crucial to our security," said Hussain Eidan, Operation Manager, Information Systems Dep't, Ministry of Health, Government of Kuwait.
"We have found Trend Micro's OfficeScan 10.6 to be an excellent and very dependable product and we are already live across over 30 remote locations. The new plug-in manager offers more and enhanced features along with the new simple widgets for better control and accessibility. More importantly for us, the performance and scanning is even faster than 10.5. This means less resource utilization and ease of operation. The useful integrated Data Loss Prevention (DLP) module in OSCE now allows full data protection as well Anti-Malware protection, all within one simple product," added Hussain Eidan.
"As a school district, we have to be aware of how our data is being handled," said Michael Clark, Director of IT, Battle Ground School District. "Right now, we are monitoring what types of information employees are sending out. Trend Micro(TM) Enterprise Security for Endpoints, with the new DLP plug-in, can help us with our monitoring efforts and therefore improve our understanding and visibility about data movement in our environment. Then we can continue to evolve our internal standards and policies, and take advantage of Trend Micro data protection features as we phase in tighter controls."

From this single product, businesses can now directly publish, schedule, and track their social media marketing efforts on Facebook and Twitter either as stand alone campaigns or integrated with their email marketing campaigns.
According to the 2011 Social Media Marketing Industry Report, 88 percent of marketers view social media as a key component for increasing brand exposure and reach. iContact allows businesses to capitalize on this opportunity by integrating social media channels into existing email marketing campaigns and disseminating social media messages through Facebook or Twitter.
"Social networks continue to grow and transform business communications, yet businesses have lacked the insight and capabilities to utilize these channels to their full potential," said Jeff Revoy, chief product and marketing officer at iContact. "iContact's new social media marketing solution provides valuable insight into which channels, content and messages resonate most with key audiences. We are providing the foundation for businesses to have more meaningful social media interactions with their customers and constituents."
"We post to our Facebook and Twitter accounts almost daily to share insightful articles, tips and other industry news," said Lauren Watral, geriatric care manager at Raleigh Geriatric Care Management, an iContact customer. "iContact provides a robust platform where we can efficiently manage our social media and email marketing needs in one location, saving us valuable time and resources and providing the tools we need to succeed."
Through iContact's social analytics engine, users can measure the reach of their social media posts including the number of "Likes," "Comments" and "Retweets." Using Facebook and Twitter's API, iContact pulls tracking information about each Facebook or Twitter account and any posted messages. The iContact social media marketing product set includes:
-- Social Publishing - Customers won't have to log into Facebook or Twitter
to conduct multi-channel marketing campaigns. It can all be done through
iContact quickly and easily through a friendly user interface mirroring
Facebook and Twitter.
-- Social Analytics - Customers view more detailed tracking information and
reports, beyond what is currently provided by Facebook and Twitter, in
order to better measure the impact of their social media marketing
efforts. In real-time, users can view the number of Fans for each page
within a Facebook account or followers with Twitter. Once content is
shared, they can access the total number of "Likes," "Comments" and
"Clicks" through Facebook and the number of "Retweets" via Twitter.
-- Social Scheduling - iContact users can log in and input all of their
social media posts at one time and schedule them to publish at a
specified future date. Users can also save posts as drafts, enabling
review prior to posting.
While many small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) view social media as an important marketing tool, they are often challenged with limited resources to execute campaigns, or don't have the tracking and analytics capabilities to show the true value of social media marketing. iContact engaged further with SMBs to start a conversation on the challenges they experience in using social media. The company will publish results of an SMB social media survey and continue the conversation on social media with a special video contest to be announced Oct. 25, 2011.
iContact social media marketing solution is available immediately. For more information, please visit http://www.icontact.com.

TRX® Takes Aggressive Action to Protect Consumers Against Illegal Knock-Off Products
Safety & Authenticity at Forefront of New Packaging Strategy To Help Customers Verify Use of Genuine TRX Product
SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --TRX®, the creators of Suspension Training® bodyweight exercise, today introduced an authentication campaign designed to prevent counterfeiting and piracy efforts around its popular fitness products, beginning with the TRX FORCE® Kit: Tactical. To combat the increasing amount of counterfeit TRX products being sold illegally, the company has placed a hologram hidden under the TRX badge and on the product's packaging, including information that encourages customers to authenticate and register their TRX products. While holograms have been utilized by TRX on products previously, the full authentication campaign will begin with the launch of the TRX FORCE® Kit: Tactical.
The authentication program is designed to alert customers of the potential safety hazards associated with knock-off products that aren't designed or manufactured according to the stringent and recognized safety standards maintained by TRX. Additionally, it provides customers an added measure to verify the authenticity of their TRX products. To verify an original TRX product, customers simply locate the serial number on the genuine TRX hologram, log on to http://www.trxtraining.com/activate and register the product. The registration process will validate the serial number, activate warranty and also allow customers to download free content.
"As the creators of Suspension Training, we have assumed the leadership position in protecting the integrity of our proprietary products to ensure that consumers are provided products that maintain the highest standards of safety, performance and value," said Randy Hetrick, CEO and Founder of TRX. "Not only does piracy threaten the integrity of the TRX brand and our products, but more importantly, it threatens consumers who are misled and ripped off by inferior and often dangerous products that can ultimately result in injuries."
Safety is a primary goal of the authentication campaign. Counterfeit products do not hold up to the safety standards of TRX products. TRX is committed to producing only best-in-class products, rigorously tested and constructed to withstand intensive daily use by thousands of TRX users. For this reason, top health clubs, elite trainers, professional athletes, U.S. Military and mainstream consumers trust and use TRX equipment, making it the leading suspension training product on the market today.
All TRX products go through a rigorous process to ensure its durability and quality. This approach to quality control ensures that TRX products exceed even the most stringent military specifications. TRX builds quality and durability into its designs. The use of industrial strength materials, redundant stitching and other fail-safe features create a strong and safe product that cannot be duplicated by copycats or counterfeiters. Extensive tests are performed on the materials and components used in TRX products, which must meet touch quality standards and specifications. This approach to quality control ensures that TRX products meet and exceed the most stringent quality and safety specifications.
In addition to superiority in quality of construction and safety, TRX products offer superior value through industry-leading programming. While false and illegal purveyors of TRX Suspension Trainers may advertise their products as authentic, knock-off vendors cannot match the extensive programming and education that only TRX provides. After breaking new ground by creating the Suspension Training exercises, TRX went a step further in developing a wealth of programming and education, designed to provide an ever-increasing level of value for TRX customers. To date, TRX has trained more than 30,000 fitness professionals and coaches across 40 countries through its accredited, comprehensive Suspension Training Courses. These professional education courses are officially recognized by the leading certification organizations in the fitness industry. In addition, United States Department of Defense purchased 24,000 TRX Suspension Trainers, which were distributed to deploying U.S. Military brigades and battalions.
Additionally, TRX is taking an aggressive legal approach to impede the sale of pirated products. Over the past year, the company has legally reclaimed ownership of more than 100 domain names that were used by cybersquatters to sell counterfeit versions of its products. At the same time, TRX has successfully delisted nearly 7,000 products from sites such as eBay, and a large number of counterfeit listings from similar sites around the globe.
TRX employs a devoted anti-piracy team that scours websites on a daily basis, and works with Google and other sites to identify and take down counterfeit listings and advertising campaigns. Similarly, TRX has working relationships with U.S. Customs, as well as Customs in some of its key markets including China, United Kingdom, Italy and more, to help identify and confiscate counterfeit shipments.
TRX® is the world's preeminent producer of physical training equipment, exercise programming and education designed for trainers, health clubs, military users, fitness-minded consumers and athletes of all levels. TRX® designs and sells original products of innovative design and premium quality construction, including Suspension Training® and Rip(TM) Training equipment and exercise programs that are changing the way athletes train for sport, soldiers train for combat, physical therapists rehabilitate patients and exercise instructors train their clients. The complete line of TRX® products, training programs, education and accessories can be purchased directly from TRX® online at http://www.trxtraining.com. For more information on TRX® products, education and programming, call (888) 878-5348 or email email@example.com.

AppTech Corp to Launch NBA Star Leandro Barbosa's Brazilian Blur Live! TV Apps
BOCA RATON, Fla., Oct. 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- AppTech Corp (Pink Sheets: APCX) has reached an agreement to launch its Livecam Platform, a live video, webcasting solution for mobile phones in partnership with Leandro Barbosa, a Brazilianbasketball player, who plays at the guard position with Flamengo Basketball in Brazil. He is also under contract with the NBA'sToronto Raptors and is expected to return to that team once the 2011 NBA lockout ends. In Brazil he is nicknamed "Leandrinho" (Little Leandro), and in the USA and Canada he is nicknamed "The Brazilian Blur", referring to the fact that he is one of the fastest players in the NBA.
AppTech Corp's Livecam Platform powers the apps which celebrities can use to stream live video from their smartphones to millions of fans worldwide who follow them on social networks, web and mobile. The company's focus is to increase the availability of such rich content to include internationally renowned soccer and UFC stars, actors, models, and musicians, also known as "lifecasting". It is a means to bring "reality tv" as it happens in their lives to their fan base. In most cases the financial worth of celebrities increases as they get more exposure to their fan base. AppTech Corp's technology will open a whole new world of exposure to celebrities. Comments Elias Rocha, AppTech's newly designated CEO: "It is a win-win relationship for celebrities and AppTech. The celebrity increases their market value and AppTech earns high margin revenue."
The AppTech Livecam Platform is a native code Android video and interactivity platform for originating live video streams with simultaneous audio and text communications in real time. Video is encoded in H.264 and broadcast live, in real time, to our cloud-based servers which distribute the content to large audiences. Elias Rocha adds: "Our new app platform features hardware acceleration techniques developed to optimize the processing power, memory and battery consumption on Android smartphones, making it unique because devices become faster and more efficient than the competitive 'record and share video from mobile' apps currently available. We are prepared to handle large traffic volumes, motivated by the tremendous international notoriety of our content originators. Moreover, AppTech now has the firm potential to generate significant cash flows because our platform provides full advertising support and in-app purchases."
The Brazilian Blur Live! TV service will be available on the web via Twitter, iPhones, iPads and Android phones and tablet computers. The contract with AppTech Corp to provide service is a two year exclusive agreement.
Leandro Barbosa says, "I can't wait to start broadcasting live from wherever I am and show fans worldwide my day to day activities from Brazil or anywhere else. I love being in touch with my fans and it doesn't get much better than live video on your cell phone. What a great concept."

FilmFunds Strengthens Effort to Reshape How Hollywood Takes Films to Market With New High-Tech Tools and Production Arm
LOS ANGELES, Oct. 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Encouraging a growing online community of filmmakers and fans to embrace a better way to make and market films, FilmFunds introduced a slate of new website tools today, augmenting its already game-changing technologies such as real-time Emotional ID (EID) and image recognition. Concurrently, the company debuted a production arm to more actively facilitate fan-favorite projects. FilmFunds, which launched last month, empowers a social community of 60+ million entertainment fans to be part of the green-light process in moving popular film concepts toward reality.
That process begins with content owners/creators uploading materials (e.g., synopses, trailers, artwork) to the website (http://www.FilmFunds.com) under one of two groups: Category I (projects not yet in production) or Category II (projects already in production, or completed, that require finishing, P&A or other funds). In the spirit of its piggybank icon, FilmFunds members who "Like" a potential project can then click the icon to give it an "Oink!," with a critical mass of "Oinks!" forecasting an audience for it down the road.
New website features include:
-- New Rewards System - Enhancing the way that FilmFunds connects content
creators with fans, filmmakers can now offer specific rewards for the
most active and supportive fans: from set visits and signed scripts all
the way up to executive producer credits on a project
-- Redesigned Upload - Uploading a project to FilmFunds has been redesigned
and streamlined, making the process faster than a greased pig at a
-- FilmFunds Talent - Now actors and actresses can connect with fans and
filmmakers, with a new category for uploading headshots, bios/resumes
and performance reels
-- Social Media Calendar - A unique, customizable tool designed to simplify
the social networking process. Now filmmakers can quickly and easily
create timely news updates and keep connected with their fans through
social media channels.
For film fans:
-- PiggyPoints - Every activity and level of engagement on FilmFunds is now
rewarded! Users can earn PiggyPoints, for example, by discovering and
promoting new movies, sharing their love for a project across their
social networks, even by uploading their own project.
-- Share Bars - Add your Twitter timeline to your FilmFunds home page for a
personalized news feed and share everything on FilmFunds across
Facebook, Twitter and Google+ through "share bars" throughout the site
-- Movie Tickets via Fandango - Purchase tickets for the hottest new
releases without leaving the FilmFunds site or mobile app. Showtimes
and tickets powered by Fandango are available for movie theaters coast
to coast at the touch of a button!
The FilmFunds mobile app offers the same functionality as the website in a more compact form and is available on Apple and Android handsets, with a BlackBerry version available late November and Windows and Symbian versions available by year's end. The mobile app features image recognition technology enabling users to snap a photo of a movie poster, for example, automatically returning information about the content. Its groundbreaking Emotional ID (EID) technology translates real-time facial reactions during test previews into measurable emotional results.
In addition, FilmFunds has launched a new production arm that will tap the company's Hollywood reach to attach experienced producing personnel to qualified projects, i.e., those with a critical mass of "Oinks!" FilmFunds Creative Director Mika Astrom says, "We launched last month with a focus on pre-qualifying entertainment content so that it could be financed and produced. Based on the early positive response, our investors have encouraged us to expand our mission and actively shepherd promising projects ourselves."
The currency of public opinion, as captured through crowd-sourcing technology, is an exciting new model for providing analytics and insight to producers and studios, says Astrom, who predicts it will one day replace costly test screenings. "Why spend millions producing something that might find an audience, when millions of fans can tell you if a project has resonance before it's made?"
Headquartered in Los Angeles, FilmFunds offers a 360-degree solution for Hollywood to test nascent film projects, helping move content through the pipeline by creating an audience for it, while giving fans a unprecedented opportunity to be part of the green-light process. FilmFunds utilizes crowd-sourced social marketing research to replace the costly live test-screening model used since Hollywood's Golden Era. A social environment where Hollywood filmmakers can meet their real audience, with the most accurate, state-of-the-art diagnostics guiding their efforts to improve and build support for their product, FilmFunds is a place where film lovers have a chance to make it their movie.

Atmel Reduces Total System Cost by Integrating LCD Controller into Popular AVR XMEGA Family
Leader in MCUs adds LCD controller and USB to provide designers with a flexible, ultra-low power, high- performance solution for home automation, metering and industrial applications
New $29 easy-to-use evaluation kit accelerates development time
SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Atmel® Corporation (NASDAQ: ATML), a leader in microcontroller and touch solutions, today announced it is adding an LCD controller to devices in the popular AVR® XMEGA® microcontroller (MCU) family. The integration of an LCD controller offers designers reduced design complexity and lower overall system cost, while providing ultra-low power consumption for applications including smart meters, home automation, power tools and other applications that require a user interface.
The integrated LCD controller in the AVR XMEGA family reduces the overall design complexity by integrating all the features required to run a segment in an LCD display. The devices also include an innovative SWAP mode that enables internal re-routing of the LCD signals and makes PCB design easier and less complex for developers. These AVR XMEGA microcontrollers utilize Atmel picoPower® technology, resulting in ultra-low power consumption. The new devices use less than a third of the current compared to existing megaAVR® LCD controllers, requiring only 3µA to run the LCD display in sleep mode. The integrated LCD controller supports up to 4x40 and 4x25 segments on the 100-pin and 64-pin AVR XMEGA microcontrollers, respectively. For designs that do not require all the LCD segments, up to 16 segment pins can be used as general-purpose I/O pins.
"Integration and lower system cost are key differentiators for MCU designers in a variety of applications," said Ingar Fredriksen, sr. director of AVR products, Atmel Corporation. "The new features in the latest AVR XMEGA devices address these needs by including an LCD controller and USB to offer designers a higher level of integration and reduced complexity, resulting in overall lower system cost. Several of the new devices also include two 12-bit analog-to-digital converters that can be synchronized, making the devices ideal for electricity metering and other high-precision applications."
The new AVR XMEGA family with integrated LCD and USB capabilities include all the same features of the existing AVR XMEGA family including high-precision 12-bit analog, real-time performance, and Atmel-patented ultra-low picoPower technology. The AVR XMEGA devices are also designed to enable a simple and intuitive migration between devices with identical peripheral modules and a linear address map. For more information about the AVR XMEGA family with integrated LCD, please visit: http://www.atmel.com/microsite/xmega_lcd.
Atmel AVR XMEGA Family
The Atmel AVR XMEGA family is the only 8/16-bit MCU in the market with DMA Controller and Event System. Peripherals and communication modules can utilize the DMA system to move data so the AVR XMEGA CPU has more idle time to save power or to perform other tasks. The innovative event system enables direct inter-peripheral signaling for short and 100% predictable response time without interrupt and CPU usage. Designers can now develop a solution with predictable real-time performance and data throughput even under a high system load. Other functions such as hardware AES and DES encryption and decryption ensure fast and low-power secure communication. Cryptography protects important intellectual software property during remote programming and firmware distribution. Atmel AVR XMEGA can also easily realize robust touch-sensing interfaces through the Atmel QTouch® Library, enabling capacitive buttons, sliders, and wheels for user interfaces. For more information, visit http://www.atmel.com/xmega.
Pricing and Availability
The new Atmel AVR XMEGA devices with an integrated LCD controller and USB are available in production quantities in 64- and 100-pin TQFP packages. Pricing for 10,000-piece quantities follow:
The XMEGA-B1 Xplained evaluation kit is also available for USD $29. The XMEGA-B1 Xplained kit is a complete reference design demonstrating the LCD, USB and the ultra-low power consumption of the AVR XMEGA B devices. The kit comes pre-loaded with software, is fully supported by Atmel AVR Software Framework and Atmel AVR Studio, and is easily reprogrammable with no additional tools. To purchase an evaluation kit, please go to the Atmel Store at http://store.atmel.com.

two networks' PCRFs - both networks are protected from overflow or failover
situations. It is truly a critical function in maintaining network
performance at the highest level," said Ben Volkow, CEO of Traffix. "These
latest enhancements definitely make our DEA the only one of this caliber
that is commercially available."

updates and web content refreshes throughout its global datacenter
infrastructures. RepliWeb will be tightly integrated into Mondial Assistance
USA's Application Lifecycle Management workflows and business processes,
enabling rapid and continuous deployment goals.
The international leader in Travel Insurance, Mondial Assistance USA's
significant business growth has necessitated expanded development
initiatives and IT Infrastructure. This rapid IT expansion added strain to
legacy processes; manual deployment efforts required greater team resources,
introduced risks, and also limited release windows.
In selecting RepliWeb, Mondial Assistance USA is able to accelerate
production releases and better govern the entire Release Management process
across Development, Testing, and globally distributed Production
environments. To help achieve true Application Release Automation, Mondial
Assistance USA leverages RepliWeb's repeatable, reproducible deployment

cross-team collaboration across Development and Operations Teams.
"Prior to RepliWeb, our team use to assemble at 4:00 am to manage
critical deployments," explained Chris Burroughs, VP of Infrastructure
Services, Mondial Assistance USA. "The introduction of RepliWeb helped
reduce deployment-related administration by 60% and virtually eliminated
risks associated with legacy manual efforts."
"Now that we are able to build standardized, reproducible processes with
RepliWeb, our team no longer spends time scripting deployments, updating
documentation, and manually checking production servers. Operational
improvements and gains in productivity allowed us to immediately achieve an
ROI equivalent to one Full Time Employee. And most importantly, our team is
able to quickly respond to the demands of the Business and provide a
high-quality production experience for our end-users".
To extend the value of RepliWeb Deployment, Mondial Assistance USA will
extend the products reach to automate the deployment of "Builds" from
Microsoft Team Foundation Server 2010 (TFS) to Testing environments. When
extended to TFS, RepliWeb will allow Mondial Assistance USA to maintain a
unified build-release deployment methodology that includes end-to-end
"RepliWeb is helping Development and Operations Teams standardize
processes and achieve continuous integration goals, aligning large-scale
production releases with more rapid, incremental code releases," commented
Garrick Herrmann, Vice President of Sales for Atttunity. "As a result,
organizations can scale their web and application infrastructure, reduce
risks, and realize improvements to their bottom line."

enterprise-class customers for nearly 20 years and has successful
deployments at thousands of organizations worldwide. Attunity provides

TV News format, with the power of interactivity
For these learning nuggets TIS has created a broadcast room format
similar to a TV News room. A short, engaging and professional moderator
presents the topic and emphasizes the value of each nugget. In addition,
there's engaging interactivity such as a "Learn more" button and other such
buttons, so the learner can get more involved with the screen and the topic.
TIS can create these modules in powerful animations, video, story
telling...the limits are in your imagination.
