UEFA European Championship apps may violate Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) PoliciesMaidenhead, U.K. – June 21, 2016 – With EURO 2016 in full swing, football fans around the world are watching 24 teams play 51 games now through July 10.

And millions of those fans are leveraging popular mobile apps to stream content and stay up to date – apps that could pose security risks to enterprises.

According to a new report, “Will Companies be Shown a Yellow Card during EURO 2016?”, if used on employer-issued or employee-owned BYOD devices, many of these popular apps could violate corporate risk policies. “CIOs are likely unaware that many popular EURO 2016 apps used by millions of employees all across Europe are able to access very sensitive device functions and data – such as ad networks, location services & tracking, telephony, in-app purchasing, social networking and microphones – to name just a few,” said Maureen Polte, Vice President of Product Management at Flexera Software. “Enterprises do a great job monitoring the various enterprise apps running on their networks and mitigating risks – however most do not extend their Application Readiness best practices to their mobile apps – an oversight which could invite unacceptable risk into the organisation.” The report found that of the almost 50 popular Apple iOS EURO 2016 apps tested[1]: 73 percent, including BTSport, Football365, Foot Mercato, FranceFootball, lequipe, LIVE Score, Onefootball, SkyGo and SO FOOT, support Ad Networks. 69 percent, including BTSport, Football365, Foot Mercato, FranceFootball, lequipe, Onefootball, SkyGo and SO FOOT, support Location Services & Tracking. 67 percent, including BTSport, Football365, Foot Mercato, lequipe, LIVE Score, Onefootball, SkyGo and SO FOOT, support Telephony. 57 percent, including BTSport, Football365, Foot Mercato, FranceFootball, lequipe, Onefootball and SO FOOT, support In-app Purchasing. 57 percent, including BTSport, Football365, Foot Mercato, FranceFootball, lequipe, LIVE Score, Onefootball and SO FOOT, support Social Networking. 4 percent, including bet365Wrapper and lequipe, support accessing the Microphone. “CIOs need to understand that the behaviours of the mobile apps their employees are using may interact with their corporate systems and data – because not all mobile app developers are trustworthy,” added Polte. “This requires a centralised, automated, repeatable Application Readiness process to identify and test those apps to determine what they do, and whether they comply with or violate the organisation’s BYOD policies.” To compile the report, Flexera Software identified almost 50 widely used EURO 2016 applications, representing a small sampling of those that can be found in the Apple App Store and that could easily be downloaded by employees to a corporate-issued or BYOD device.

These apps were tested using AdminStudio Mobile, an Application Readiness solution that helps organisations identify, manage, track and report on mobile apps, simplify mobile application management, reduce mobile app risk, and address the rapidly growing demand for mobile apps in the enterprise. [1] The apps tested were: 888sport, AppPublishing, bet365Wrapper, Betfair, Betfred, betscores, BetVictor, Betway Sports, BTSport, bwinSportsbookCOM, Coral Mobile, direct, EM, EM2016, ESPN UK, Euro2016 – Prod, EurosportPlayer, FF.fr, FFF_2016_iOS, Foot Mercato, Football365, Forza, FranceFootball, Interwetten, Ladbrokes, lequipe, LFoTVApp, LIVE Score, M6VideoBox, Mobile, Mobile Bet, My Bet Apps, myCANAL, MyLequipe, MyTF1, Onefootball, Paddy Power, RAN, ScoreCentre, SkyBet, SkyGo, SO FOOT, Sport, Sport1, Sportschau, Stan James, Team Stream, Tipico Sports and William Hill. # # # Resources:Download the Report Learn more about: Follow Flexera Software… About Flexera SoftwareFlexera Software helps application producers and enterprises increase application usage and security, enhancing the value they derive from their software.

87 per cent of visual hacks were successfulBracknell, UK, 21 June, 2016 – 3M, the science-based technology company, has revealed the results of a UK and worldwide experiment that demonstrates ’visual hacking’ is a significant risk . In the UK, the rate of successful visual hacks – many of which were achieved by viewing people’s computer screens – was 87 per cent, compared to an average of 91 per cent worldwide.

Alarmingly, the ‘white hat hacker’ was confronted in a global average of only 32 per cent of occasions. The Global Visual Hacking Experiment is an expansion of the 2014 Visual Hacking Experiment conducted in the United States.

The new 2016 study, completed by Ponemon Institute across eight countries and sponsored by 3M Company, found that sensitive information was successfully captured in 91 per cent of visual hacking experiments globally. 3M will be sharing further details of the experiment at the Future of Work conference being held by Management Today in London on 23 June www.3M.co.uk/privacyfilters Says Peter Barker, Market Development Manager, EMEA, 3M Display Material and Systems Division, “The results highlight that visual hacking is a problem in the UK and also worldwide.
It also happens very quickly and it proved alarmingly easy to obtain all kinds of sensitive information in the experiment. However, where visual hacking prevention measures are in place, the risk drops by more than a quarter.

Clearly, UK organisations would benefit by building visual hacking prevention strategies into their security policies.” Details of the experimentIn the experiment, a white hat visual hacker assumed the role of temporary office worker and was assigned a valid security badge worn in visible sight.

The white hat hacker attempted to visually hack sensitive or confidential information using three methods: walking through the office scouting for information in full-view on desks, monitor screens and other indiscrete locations like printers and copy machines; taking a stack of business documents labelled as confidential off a desk and placing it into a briefcase; and using a smartphone to take a picture of confidential information displayed on a computer screen.

All three of these tasks were completed in full-view of other office workers at each participating company. Result highlights25 per cent of successful visual hacks during the experiment were achieved because computer screens were not protected. Out of all the information deemed ‘sensitive’, 44 per cent was from this method.

This was better than the global average of 52 per cent, but lags far behind the Germans, with just 33 per cent.
Sensitive information obtained included log-in details, financial and other sensitive information, including contact lists and customer data.
In the UK, 51 per cent of successful hacks took 15 minutes or less. The office functions easiest to hack were sales, customer services and communications, followed by accounting and finance, and human resources.

The most secure were legal, closely followed by Quality Assurance and R&D.
In the UK, hackers were not confronted in 61 per cent of cases (compared to a worldwide average of 68 per cent). Where visual security practices were in place – such as clean desk policies; workplace monitoring and surveillance; training and awareness programmes; and standardised document shredding processes, there was a global average reduction in successful hacks by 26 per cent.

Devopsense casts its line into the multi-billion pound market for enterprise DevOps transformation.LONDON — 21 June 2016 — Following the successful release of minimesos, Container Solutions continues its game plan to support developers of microservice applications with the announcement of a new subsidiary, Devopsense. Led by DevOps expert Mark Heistek, Devopsense is focused on helping enterprises implement the processes needed to shift from legacy software development models to agile methods, including DevOps. Container Solutions Logo Devopsense provides the training and services enterprises need to successfully harness DevOps as a self-organising force that becomes part of a company’s product development culture. Parent company Container Solutions focuses on engineering services and product development, while Devopsense is structured to focus on consulting with clients to help them embrace the concepts of DevOps, including automation and rapid deployment cycles. Devopsense helps clients organise for DevOps workflows, including new skills, methodologies and application architectures. The team applies first-hand experience to address the issues developers will face. An example includes real-world management of continuous integration/continuous deployment (CI/CD) processes so that software delivery and infrastructure provisioning are separate processes, increasing both the speed and control of the DevOps process overall. The company works closely with clients to embed DevOps philosophies throughout the organisation. Start-ups looking for engineering consultation, medium-sized companies looking for implementation and application architecture support, and large enterprises looking for complete transformational services can all work with Devopsense. Container Solutions and Devopsense companies will work closely on engineering support. “Change can be tough. And that’s where we come in. DevOps is more than just a cultural shift, and it’s more than just a way to build software better and faster,” said Mark Heistek, head of delivery and creator of Devopsense. “DevOps is a new way of thinking about how software can add value and sustainable differentiation. Our mission is to advise, coach and guide clients to a DevOps state of mind, learning how to grow, innovate, automate and thrive on what they do best: make great products and serve customers.” Heistek comes to Devopsense from ING Bank, where he helped lead DevOps transformation and was product owner of the TIBCO continuous deployment process and the Continuous Delivery on-boarding team. He also was a continuous delivery coach and trainer, helping software development teams within the organisation make transition to DevOps. “Mark has first-hand experience leading large organisations through the DevOps transformation,” said Jamie Dobson, CEO of Container Solutions. “That experience gave birth to Devopsense. Together with Container Solutions, Devopsense delivers the right combination of engineering and consulting experience to clients, enabling successful transformations. Working together, we can test new tools with real clients, bringing new technologies to market while helping clients succeed at DevOps.” Armon Dadgar, co-founder and CTO of HashiCorp remarked, "At HashiCorp, we believe that a firm starts with its people, organises around process, and leverages tools. DevOps is a new process to drive software development and while the market focus is on tools, I think groups like Devopsense are needed to help organisations clearly understand and adopt the appropriate process." DevOps Trend QuantifiedGartner, Inc. puts the total for DevOps tools at US$2.3 billion for 2015, up more than 20 percent from US$1.9 billion in 2014. This year, the firm expects DevOps to evolve from a niche strategy employed by large cloud providers to a mainstream strategy employed by 25 percent of Global 2000 organisations. (Source: http://www.gartner.com/newsroom/id/2999017) In its report, “2016 Trends in Development, DevOps & IT Ops,” 451 Research cites the rapid growth of containers as a primary driver of enterprise DevOps adoption, with artifact versioning, immutable infrastructure, and empathy between development and operations teams as elements of DevOps that are particularly compelling. Devopsense is the latest addition to the Container Solutions constellation of companies, which includes Container Solutions offices in London, Amsterdam and Zurich, and the design agency, Remember to Play, which specialises in design for distributed systems and programmable infrastructure. Together, these companies can service a whole range of needs for clients, including application design, systems integration, implementation, transformation, security audits and even interim corporate management services. About Container SolutionsContainer Solutions is a pan-European company, with offices in Amsterdam, London, Zurich, Edinburgh and Copenhagen. They deliver software engineering services and tools for container-based development. Well established in the container and microservice open source ecosystems, Container Solutions counts among its partners HashiCorp and Mesosphere.

Interoute colocation services fulfil all requirements of the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory AuthorityZurich and Geneva, 16 June 2016 - Interoute, owner operator of a global cloud services platform and one of Europe’s largest networks, has today announced that the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority has once again awarded the FINMA certification to Interoute Colocation Data Centres in Geneva and Zurich. Interoute’s Swiss Colocation Data Centre services have successfully and continuously achieved FINMA certification since 2012. The certification demonstrates that Interoute’s colocation services meet the highest standards of security and privacy for financial institutions operating in the country. Data Centre security is vital for financial institutions to protect confidentiality and integrity. The Zurich and Geneva data centres offer around the clock on-site security, continuous surveillance, as well as fire protection, cooling systems, and emergency power generators in the event of an emergency. Both facilities provide double fibre entry and diverse paths within the building, which connect directly to the Interoute 100g backbone network. The colocation facilities are designed to deliver IaaS and virtualised services as part of the Interoute integrated platform, delivering any service over any access type, and allowing in-life service changes. This enables enterprises to connect with buildings, data and users in their most preferred way. Maurice Woolf, Group General Counsel and EVP Corporate Support, commented: “This certification confirms Interoute’s commitment to ensuring that our services meet the highest requirements. Interoute offers our Swiss colocation customers a secure operating environment, whilst also delivering the maximum uptime possible, comprehensive redundant connectivity, around the clock customer support, and a reliable power supply.” There are nine principles that must be implemented by financial institutions and service providers in order to earn the FINMA certification. These principles serve to protect customer data, especially within the retail sector. The principles include the preservation of commercial and banking secrecy, data protection and security. Financial services customers and Interoute must together guarantee the confidentiality, availability and accuracy of data in order to ensure adequate data protection. They also protect the systems against unauthorised or accidental destruction, accidental loss, technical errors, falsification, theft or misappropriation, unauthorised modification, copying, access or other unauthorised processing. -Ends- About InterouteInteroute is the owner-operator of one of Europe's largest networks and a global cloud services platform which encompasses 12 data centres, 16 virtual data centres and 31 colocation centres, with connections to 195 additional third-party data centres across Europe.

[London – 15 June 2016] The managed services market is characterised by a rapid pace of change; profitability is based on scale, and the number of mergers and acquisitions is rising as companies seek to expand to meet rising demand.

These are some of the conclusions drawn from Managed Service Providers in Europe - the Top 1000 the latest database report from IT Europa which is published today.Overall the market grew at a rate of 8.5%, but this masks a rapid year-on-year expansion in some smaller markets (Bulgaria 33%, Slovakia 21%, Turkey 18%) while France, Netherlands and Germany all grew just over 10%, the largest, the UK grew by 7%, and some, like Spain, actually showed a decline. Russia and Norway both grew by 14%. And this is a sector that matters: total revenues for all companies in the report totals €350bn ($390bn) and they employ a total staff number of 1.6 million.

Analysis also shows a top twenty which is geographically diverse, and with not as many global players as might be expected, though the big names are there.

Telecoms companies and their derivatives make up about a third of the top twenty, which should be no surprise. What are they offering? In terms of services, 86.5% of MSPs are offering Network/Infrastructure Management; 72.4% are offering Server/Web Management; 71.9% are offering Security Management; 61.2% are offering Storage/Backup Management; 60.5% are offering SaaS; 50.3% are offering applications management; 36.6% are offering telecom services; and 13.2% are offering Managed Print Services. There are companies from 34 European countries featured in the report.

The top 5 largest geographic markets covered in terms of companies profiled are: UK (325 companies), Germany (106), France (104), Netherlands (69) and Italy (43). Of the 1000 companies profiled, 696 are independent companies, 46 parent companies, 148 subsidiaries, and 110 publicly listed. “We are seeing more and more traditional channel organisations embrace managed services as a delivery model as customer demand continues to rise,” says Alan Norman, Managing Director of IT Europa. “The factors behind the surge in demand, the changes in customer buying behaviour driving them and the opportunities this presents for MSPs will be a major subject for debate at the Managed Services & Hosting Summit 2016 (http://www.mshsummit.com/) which takes place in London in September.” The Managed Service Providers in Europe - the Top 1000 database report spans 34 countries and represents the most detailed view available of this key market sector.

Today BioConnect announces the successful deployment of its BioConnect Identity Platform and Suprema biometric hardware for access control at Netwise Hosting Ltd, a leading provider of data centre colocation in London, UK.

BioConnect provides identity solutions, with a special focus on data centre colocation customers.

BioConnect offers a unique approach which removes the need to manage point-to-point integrations as it couples Suprema biometric readers with over 20 of the leading access control system providers. Netwise Hosting’s primary focus and fundamental values are speed, security, and stability as they deliver enterprise-level hosted environments to a wide and varied customer-base, working closely with clients all around the world.

As Netwise Hosting looked to expand their offering with the development of an additional 11,000 sq. ft. data centre in London, they chose BioConnect to fulfill their security requirements to identify a more fully- featured access control system that checked all the boxes.

They saw BioConnect as a leader, with its understanding of specific data centre colocations customer needs – shared spaces of sensitive data require assurance of identity throughout the facility and to be most effective, a standardized way of deploying biometrics coupled with enterprise level support are needed. “BioConnect really set themselves apart from the competition when it comes to support; they have a small team of highly experienced individuals who know the product and the associated software inside out,” says Matthew Butt, Netwise Hosting Ltd., Managing Director, “We really cannot recommend this aspect of their offering high enough!” Netwise compared their previous vendor installations and decided on the following requirements: They needed a solution that would allow them to incorporate a clearer view of identity with a multi-authentication biometric solution that would seamlessly integrate into Paxton Net2.

The main driver, in addition to finding the correct physical product, was to avoid having duplicate systems and information for access control. Suprema biometric devices provided and supported by the BioConnect team now cover all high-security ingress and egress locations throughout the data centre facility.

These readers provide the highest level of identity authenticity and provide flexibility in indoor/outdoor placement and multifactor authentication with card and fingerprint support.

The BioConnect Identity Platform incorporates an advanced plugin architecture to connect directly into Netwise Hosting’s preferred access control software, Paxton Net2.

Therefore, in addition to finding the correct physical product, Netwise was able to avoid having duplicate systems and information for access control between their biometric and non-biometric devices running on Paxton Net2. The addition of BioConnect identity platform meant that Netwise didn’t have to make a tradeoff between software and hardware that would meet their needs – they now have their preferred access control system and multi-authentication biometrics in one single interface for the creation, removal and administration of all users and access zones. “We chose BioConnect for several reasons, primarily the ability to integrate their system seamlessly with Paxton Net2, but closely followed up by their feature set and quality of the readers themselves,” said Matthew Butt, Managing Director, “The almost immediate availability of the product – coupled with their excellent support – meant they really did stand out from the competition.” To read the full case study on this deployment, visit www.bioconnect.com/case-studies Visit BioConnect and Suprema June 21-23 during this month’s IFSEC conference at ExCel London, UK in Stand E1400. About BioConnectBioConnect is on a Quest – for Rightful Identity.
