    In addition to US litigations against Spansion and/or its Customers, Macronix Files Patent Infringement Complaints Against Spansion and its Customers in Germany for Monetary Compensation as well as Injunction

    HSINCHU, July 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Macronix International Co., Ltd. , a global leader in non-volatile memory solutions, announced that they have filed a new patent infringement complaint against Spansion International Inc, Spansion LLC, and certain of their customers in Germany for infringement of certain Macronix patents covering separate aspects of non-volatile memory devices, including flash memory. The named respondents include Harman Becker Automotive Systems GmbH, Ruckus Wireless, Inc. and Polycom GmbH. Macronix has taken this step to address the issues of Spansion's infringement of Macronix's patent rights as well as the infringement that arises when Spansion's customers import products containing infringing Spansion's devices, including Spansion flash memory devices, into Germany.

    Over the past 25 years, Macronix has invested heavily in the research and development of non-volatile memory technology. As a result of those investments, Macronix has been granted more than 5,400 patents world-wide and more than 2,100 in the United States. In a 2011 analysis conducted by The Patent Board, Macronix ranked 18th worldwide, and first in Taiwan for patent strength in the semiconductor industry.

    The above patents-in-suit relate to non-volatile memory technology and devices. In addition to monetary compensation, Macronix requests that the court issues an injunction barring Spansion's infringing devices or products containing such components from further importation into and/or further commerce in Germany.

    This additional complaint follows those litigations in the United States against Spansion and/or its customers, and their respective decisions will be available in Q1 or Q2 of 2015. Macronix is confident in its patents and the above actions, and will continue to vigorously enforce its intellectual property rights.

    Hughes ActiveQoS Technology Enhancements Accelerate Government Cloud Applications and 4G Network PerformancePart of HughesON Managed Network Solutions, New Capabilities Deliver Higher Levels of Service over Broadband

    GERMANTOWN, Md., July 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Hughes Network Systems, LLC (HUGHES), announced two new enhancements to its ActiveQoS((TM)) optimization technology that significantly improve network performance for government cloud applications and 4G wireless connectivity. Part of the comprehensive suite of HughesON((TM)) Managed Network Solutions, these enhancements deliver government agencies true end-to-end quality of service (QoS) over commonly available broadband.

    "In the past, Government field offices have struggled with unreliable, low bandwidth network solutions or were forced to pay for costly T1 lines to access their agency's primary network--that ends now," said Tony Bardo, assistant vice president for Government Solutions at Hughes. "HughesON makes it possible for rural field offices to access the same cloud applications as their headquarters' counterparts at high speeds--and do it cost-effectively."

    Cloud Acceleration
    Government agencies are finding their existing wide-area networks (WAN's) may not be up to the challenge of supporting new bandwidth intensive cloud applications. For example, Guest WiFi and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offerings can easily overwhelm an existing MPLS network with T1 access. An ideal solution is to supplement the existing network with a secondary broadband network.

    The latest Hughes ActiveQoS technology enhancements significantly accelerate the performance of broadband networks. Built into the Hughes 4x00 series Branch Gateways as part of the comprehensive suite of HughesON Managed Solutions, ActiveQoS automatically classifies and prioritizes applications based on their traffic flow characteristics--for example, prioritizing emergency data and video over a file backup.

    The result is true end-to-end QoS for direct-to-net flows, even those utilizing SSL encryption. Unlike typical split-tunnel implementations, Hughes ActiveQoS technology ensures cloud applications are not impacted by lower priority internet traffic.

    4G Acceleration
    The increasing trend of mobility and BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) initiatives in government has agencies considering the advantages of 4G LTE. However, many agencies often are stymied by numerous practical challenges--including network variability, usage-based billing and the fact that standard QoS implementations cannot track available 4G bandwidth. Hughes has addressed these limitations with an enhancement to Hughes ActiveQoS, which provides real-time tracking of available 4G bandwidth, thereby ensuring end-to-end QoS for better application performance. Working in tandem with ActiveQoS, Hughes ActiveCompression((TM)) provides more "virtual bandwidth" for better performance without costly upgrades.

    "With enhanced ActiveQoS technology built in, our Hughes 4x00 Branch Gateways provide field offices unmatched security while at the same time overcoming the challenges of direct-to-net connectivity and 4G implementations," added Bardo. "As a result, field offices can now take advantage of a more affordable and flexible next-generation WAN that delivers true end-to-end QoS over available broadband, like DSL, cable and 4G."

    The new enhanced Hughes ActiveQoS technology is available now via GSA Schedule 70 #GS-35F-0907P.

    About Hughes Network Systems
    Hughes Network Systems, LLC (Hughes) is the world's leading provider of satellite broadband for home and office, delivering innovative network technologies, managed services, and solutions for enterprises and governments globally.

Each team consisted of students from both schools.

    "Gladstone High School is grateful for the opportunity for our students to participate in Northrop Grumman's HIP program," said Scott Magnusson, principal of Gladstone High School. "Our partnership with Northrop Grumman has opened many doors for students planning on majoring in science, math, or technology in college. The hands-on, real problem-solving activities of HIP have been excellent. We're so appreciative of the HIP mentors."

    At the year-end celebration dinner sponsored by Northrop Grumman, the HIP students presented overviews of their projects and shared lessons learned during the program. Along with recognizing the HIP students, this year's recipients of the Northrop Grumman Engineering Scholars awards, Donovan Gonzales and Bryan Zhong, were honored.

    Tribune Digital Ventures Acquires What's-ONAcquisition of Asia's leading TV listings and search provider bolsters Tribune's reach to 600 million TV subscribers globally

    PALO ALTO, Calif., July 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Tribune Digital Ventures, the technology and innovation arm of Tribune Company , today announced it has acquired What's-ON, a leading television search and Electronic Program Guide (EPG) data provider for India and the Middle East. This move expands Tribune's TV listings and video metadata footprint to more than 50 countries in 30+ languages, reaching more than 600 million pay TV subscribers.

    What's-ON provides EPG data and TV search products for 16 countries, including India, United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Egypt, Qatar, Bahrain, Indonesia, Kenya and Sri Lanka. Today, What's-ON delivers data for more than 1,600 TV channels and helps power more than 50 million set-top boxes through the region's top cable and IPTV services. What's-ON customers include some of the biggest TV networks, service providers and consumer electronics manufacturers, such as STAR TV, Discovery Networks, Hathway Cable, Qatar Telecom, Samsung and Sony.

    Earlier this year, Tribune acquired music and video technology and metadata leader Gracenote. The company's sizable presence in EPG data in Europe, combined with Tribune Media Services' (TMS) presence in North America, immediately positioned Tribune as a leading provider of TV data, as well as music, around the globe. The addition of What's-ON further extends this reach and strengthens Tribune's position internationally.

    "The acquisition of What's-ON fits with our broad strategy of diversifying revenue and scaling our metadata business to meet increasing client demand," said Peter Liguori, CEO of Tribune Company. "The strategic investments we made over the last year expand Tribune's presence internationally and enable us to offer a trusted solution to cable, Internet and consumer electronics clients globally. I'm pleased that with What's-ON we will have a new presence in markets with significant opportunity and What's-ON's founder and CEO Atul Phadnis and his team will work together with Rich Cusick and Tribune's existing TV metadata team to grow this area of our business."

    India is the world's third largest TV market, after the U.S. and China, with an estimated 175 million homes and a growing base of digital cable subscribers, according to ABI Research. The expansion of digital TV in Asia, featuring popular shows and movies, will enable Tribune to develop new technologies and services on top of its entertainment data that fuel discovery and recommendations on cable, satellite and over-the-top services.

    "We felt it was important to find a company that shares our vision for the business and understands the growth potential for TV data and services in Asia. And we believe we have found that with the Tribune team," said Atul Phadnis, founder and CEO of What's-ON. "Tribune's portfolio of entertainment technology and metadata will provide us a solid foundation to grow the business and expand our services throughout the region."

    "Electronic program guides remain the primary vehicle for the discovery of TV shows and movies around the world," said Rich Cusick, who oversees the TV metadata business for Tribune. "While data remains the foundation of what we do, our evolution will be centered on data-driven services and features to help define new TV platforms and experiences for viewers around the world."

    What's-ON will continue to operate out of its headquarters in Mumbai. Its leadership team, including Atul Phadnis, will remain with the company. Tribune's Asian subsidiaries, including Tribune Digital Ventures Singapore Pte Ltd, are purchasing all of the shares of What's-ON for $27 million subject to standard adjustments.

    Edelweiss Capital served as the Investment Bank for What's-ON.

    Protiviti Governance Portal for Third-Party Anti-Corruption Helps Organizations Comply With U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices ActProtiviti technology and consulting services enable companies to develop and manage a risk-based, third-party anti-corruption program that helps companies identify and respond to a wide array of corruption and reputational risks

    MENLO PARK, Calif., July 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Protiviti (, a global consulting firm, has released the Protiviti Governance Portal for Third-Party Anti-Corruption, enabling companies to develop and manage a risk-based, third-party anti-corruption program that supports compliance with the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and other anti-corruption laws. The Governance Portal for Third-Party Anti-Corruption v4.1 is a new module of the Protiviti Governance Portal, a GRC (governance, risk and compliance) platform that helps organizations efficiently support multiple GRC activities. With the new module, companies can manage corruption risk across their third-party ecosystem from a single, centralized platform. Protiviti also provides consulting services to support anti-corruption programs with anti-corruption strategy, due diligence and remediation activities.

    "For large companies, the most common source of FCPA violations comes from third parties acting on their behalf," said Scott Moritz, managing director and global lead of Protiviti's Investigations and Fraud Risk Management practice and former FBI special agent. "Acknowledging the unique risks these 'intermediaries' present and having a well-conceived policy to combat them simply aren't enough. To fully operationalize an anti-corruption program, organizations must have the technology and content to manage the underlying processes and align them with their internal controls and audit programs."

    Third-party Due Diligence
    In November 2012, the Criminal Division of the U.S. Department of Justice along with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission jointly released "A Resource Guide to the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act." The guide outlines 10 "Hallmarks of an Effective Compliance Program," one of which relates to third-party due diligence and payments. According to the guide, "DOJ's and SEC's FCPA enforcement actions demonstrate that third parties, including agents, consultants, and distributors, are commonly used to conceal the payment of bribes to foreign officials in international business transactions. Risk-based due diligence is particularly important with third parties and will also be considered by the DOJ and SEC in assessing the effectiveness of a company's compliance program."

    The Protiviti Governance Portal for Third-Party Anti-Corruption enables companies to:

    --  Create a centralized repository for all program data and activity.
    --  Gather responses to third-party anti-corruption questionnaires prior to
    contract approval.
    --  Establish a risk-scoring model that aligns with the company's overall
    anti-corruption policy and create scorecards for its vendors and
    business partners.
    --  Identify third parties with heightened risk, allowing organizations to
    allocate resources on a risk basis for additional investigation and
    --  Manage overall workflow, investigative cases and approvals.
    --  Maintain a complete audit trail of activities.
    --  Continuously monitor third parties against watch lists

    "The Protiviti Governance Portal for Third-Party Anti-Corruption provides an easy and cost-effective way for large organizations to create a sustainable, consistent process for evaluating and managing the risks associated with their agents and third-party business partners scattered around the world," said Scott Wisniewski, managing director of Protiviti's Risk Technologies group. "It also helps companies to develop a standardized risk-scoring methodology based on their unique requirements and risk scorecards, allowing them to more easily identify and take action against the entities that present the highest risk to their organizations."

    Complimentary Webinar on July 15
    Protiviti will conduct a complimentary webinar to explore effective third-party anti-corruption programs on July 15 at 10:00 a.m. PDT. The 60-minute webinar is eligible for CPE credit* and will feature Protiviti's Moritz and guest speaker Chris McClean, principal analyst and research director with Forrester Research, Inc. Please register for the webinar at:

    The Governance Portal is a flexible technology solution that provides the visibility and oversight organizations need to manage enterprise and operational risks, optimize internal audit processes, monitor compliance risk, reduce the cost of financial controls management and improve IT governance.

    Tremor Video First to Become Veri-Site Certified(TM)New Veri-Site(TM) program offers proactive way to combat online ad piracy

    AUSTIN, Texas, July 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Veri-Site(TM) today announced the launch of its new Veri-Site Certification(TM) program for ad networks and publishers seeking to mitigate risk of doing business with rogue websites. Tremor Video, an advertising technology company elevating brand performance across all screens for the world's leading brands and publishers, is the first to have its network Veri-Site Certified(TM).

    The Veri-Site Certification program offers a proprietary solution for uncovering and profiling rogue websites to prevent ad dollars from flowing improperly to the wrong sites. Designed for companies like Tremor Video that distribute a high volume of online ads for clients, Veri-Site Certification covers a wide spectrum of risk including intellectual property (IP) infringement and pirated content. By using Veri-Site's data, advertisers can add these known sites to "do not advertise" lists in order to limit potential for ad dollars to flow improperly to rogue sites.

    "By 2016, more than 50 percent of ad buys will be programmatic, meaning advertisers will have less control over which ads appear on which sites and making Veri-Site Certification even more necessary," said Gianpaolo Sinicropi, head of business development for the Americas at Veri-Site. "By becoming Veri-Site Certified, Tremor Video is proactively working to protect their clients' brands while taking a stand against ad-supported piracy, and we're thrilled they have signed on to our program."

    Tremor Video will now have access to Veri-Site's full database of known rogue websites, complete with daily updates and the ability to create block lists, vet websites and request further research on questionable sites not yet profiled by the Veri-Site team.

    "At Tremor Video we aim to provide the safest experiences for our advertising and publishing partners," said Katie Seitz Evans, VP of Strategy and Operations. "Being Veri-Site Certified gives us the data to further ensure the high standards of quality that our company and our clients require, are maintained. We feel this type of certification and access to data will become an industry standard, and we are pleased to be at the forefront of its implementation."

    While shutting down rogue websites oftentimes is not possible due to the complexity of the networks, Veri-Site's research has proven that a "follow-the-money" approach is the best way of combatting these types of sites.

    "Until recently, there hasn't been a product that offered a comprehensive list of rogue websites that engage in high-risk online activity," Sinicropi said. "What we're offering through Veri-Site Certification is a way for ad networks to cut off revenue for these sites by controlling where their ads are placed and how they monitor campaigns to prevent potentially image-tarnishing ad placements from taking place."

    The Veri-Site Certified seal will be prominently displayed on partner company websites and other material to further reinforce commitment to combatting online advertising piracy. The subscription-based program includes access to a continually updated database of rogue websites and unlimited access to Veri-Site researchers and experts.

    Paul Smith Ltd. Teams with Internap to Deliver an Impeccable Online Retail Experience for Shoppers and Brand EnthusiastsIntelligent, route-optimized IP transit creates high-performance e-commerce experience for British fashion house to engage its fans worldwide

    ATLANTA, July 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Internap Network Services Corporation , a provider of high-performance Internet infrastructure services, today announced that Paul Smith Ltd., the pre-eminent British fashion design company, is using Internap's route-optimized Performance IP((TM)) transit service for the global delivery of its e-commerce platform. Internap's service will ensure a first-class brand site and online shopping experience for Paul Smith enthusiasts, maximizing customer loyalty and web-based revenue.

    As website visitors become increasingly reliant on the ability to complete transactions in seconds, it has never been more important for online retailers to offer an outstanding shopping experience with no interruptions or delays. Summit, the online marketing and e-commerce specialist for retail, recently estimated that a retailer with 10 million in annual online sales could lose up to 1 million in revenue each year due to consumer impatience with slow-loading web pages. A leader in British and international design trends for more than 40 years, the Paul Smith collection is wholesaled in 66 countries and has its own shops throughout North America, Europe and the Middle East and Asia, as well as 17 in England. High performance and availability, as well as low latency, all play a critical role in delivering a seamless online retail experience to a global customer base. The fashion designer's IT team was looking for a partner that could deliver these characteristics with guaranteed levels of IP transit performance across a worldwide footprint - allowing them to keep pace with the demands of online fashion fans.

    "With a fast-growing and geographically dispersed online customer base, it's imperative that we offer a brand site infused with Paul Smith's unique creative spirit on every page. Our website is our primary means of communicating with our customers about the latest designs and trends. Whether viewing a collection in our e-commerce shop or browsing Paul's blog, the site experience is visually-rich, so consistently fast and reliable network connectivity is a critical piece in our IT puzzle," said Simon Young, web development manager at Paul Smith Ltd. "Internap's Performance IP transit service delivers bullet-proof connectivity on a global scale, along with an extremely knowledgeable and experienced support team that monitors and ensures network performance, allowing us to stay focused on the business of Paul Smith."

    Internap's Performance IP service incorporates its patented Managed Internet Route Optimizer((TM) )(MIRO) technology that dynamically evaluates critical network performance factors - such as jitter, latency and packet loss - to automatically direct traffic over the best path to its destination. Continuously scanning Internet routes and making more than 1,300 traffic optimizations per customer per hour, MIRO results in consistently fast website performance. Compared to other carriers, which typically deliver traffic over the fastest path less than 15 percent of the time, MIRO steers traffic over the best-performing network path more than 99 percent of the time.

    "A renowned fashion brand in England and throughout the world, Paul Smith requires optimal website performance at all times, making it an ideal use case for our Performance IP service," said Paul Vian, director of business development at Internap. "Online retailers like Paul Smith are turning to Internap because they realize their rich media website and e-commerce platform investments - which are critical to revenue growth and brand loyalty - can only be fully realized with a reliable and consistently high-performing experience for customers, whether they are in Nottingham, New York or Nagasaki."

    Mentor Graphics Delivers Veloce Emulation Solutions for the Verification of High-Performance Memory Products

    WILSONVILLE, Ore., July 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Mentor Graphics Corp. , a leader in advanced system verification solutions, today announced emulation solutions to accelerate the verification of high-performance memory products that use the latest-generation standards: Hybrid Memory Cube (HMC), LPDDR4, and eMMC 5.0. Using these emulation solutions with the Veloce((R) )emulation platform, designers can test new devices integrated on their System-on-Chip (SoC) designs, and develop and stress-test their software and hardware with billions of verification cycles before silicon is available.

    SoC designers require higher memory bandwidth and performance in response to the challenges created with products such as mobile multimedia devices and new networking infrastructure. To address this requirement, Mentor has created models for emerging memory standards that can be accelerated on the Veloce 2 emulator. The combined solution delivers functionality and performance to meet critical system-level verification needs.

    HMC is a 3D-DRAM architecture that can deliver memory bandwidths in excess of 100Gbits/second, or 15 times that of DDR3 memories, while consuming 70 percent less energy/bit than DDR3. HMC is increasingly used to meet the 100Gbit and higher networking application requirements, and is also targeted for higher GPU and CPU bandwidth needs.

    The LPDDR4 and eMMC 5.0 memories are complementary technologies used in ultra-mobile products, such as tablets, superphones, and ultrabooks where LPDDR4 is used for DRAM, and eMMC 5.0 is used for mass storage. High bandwidth and performance, low power and cost, and a small form factor are key characteristics that make these memory standards attractive for today's SoC designers.

    All three memory models can now be used by verification engineers, in conjunction with the rest of their SoC design running in the Veloce emulator, in a plug-and-play way that eases their adoption in an accelerated verification environment. In addition, each memory device model is compatible with the Questa((R)) functional verification platform to allow an easy transition from simulation to emulation.

    "Our ability to provide industry-leading solutions for the verification of SoC designs containing next-generation memory devices is critical to the success of our customers developing high-performance products," said Eric Selosse, vice president and general manager, Mentor Emulation Division. "In delivering these new memory device solutions for emulation, Mentor has again demonstrated our leadership as the premier supplier of hardware-assisted products for SoC verification, and our commitment to providing customers with the best-in-class emulation solutions for the latest-generation standards."

    The new memory device models can be used for traditional in-circuit emulation (ICE), virtual lab emulation, and high-performance, transaction-based acceleration. When combined with the Veloce2 emulator, these memory solutions deliver high-performance and easy-to-use IP and system-level verification for verifying SoCs containing HMC, LPDDR4, or eMMC 5.0 devices, without compromising delivery schedules.

    All three solutions are available for deployment at customer sites effective immediately. For product information on the Mentor memory model solutions, contact your Mentor sales representative, call 800-547-3000, or visit the website at

    US Environmental Protection Agency Designs Test Engine With ANSYS Simulation TechnologyCombustion modeling tools guide creation of engine to demonstrate feasibility of new emissions standards

    PITTSBURGH, July 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has selected ANSYS simulation solutions to model in-cylinder combustion to develop an advanced test engine that will demonstrate fuel-saving and emissions-reducing technologies. The EPA's test engine will help establish the feasibility of meeting recently issued fuel standards through improvements to combustion chamber geometries, fuel injection strategies, fuel composition, valve timing and intake conditions.

    While physical prototyping and direct tests on real engine hardware can guide engine design, they are very costly and time-intensive. By using ANSYS FORTE, the EPA can experiment with engine design in a virtual setting. As a result, its engineers can quickly and inexpensively make multiple design iterations. ANSYS acquired FORTE as part of its acquisition of Reaction Design earlier this year.

    "The goal of our Clean Automotive Technology program is to research, evaluate and develop advanced engine and drivetrain technologies that help increase fuel efficiency, reduce regulated criteria emissions such as nitrogen oxides and particulate matter, and cut greenhouse gas emissions. To accomplish this, we needed to understand how changes in engine design and hardware can impact the engine combustion processes," said Matthew Spears, Heavy-Duty Onroad and Nonroad Center Director of EPA's Office of Transportation and Air Quality. "Using ANSYS solutions to generate realistic 3-D simulations of internal combustion engines, we can gain visibility into critical engine behaviors in a timely, cost-effective manner and obtain accurate and predictive results to guide the development of our test engine."

    The new fuel standards are part of a joint final rule published by the EPA and the Department of Transportation's National Highway Traffic Safety administration (NHTSA). The new standards are designed to further reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve fuel economy for model years 2017 through 2025 for light-duty vehicles. Combined with the previous EPA and NHTSA standards, the new program is projected to result in model year 2025 vehicles emitting one-half of the green gas emissions from the 2010 model year.

    "Designing high performance internal combustion engines that meet regulatory mandates for reduced emissions is perhaps the top challenge faced by today's automotive manufacturers," said Bernie Rosenthal, general manager at ANSYS. "We are excited to support the EPA as the agency uses our computer simulation solutions to create its test engine. Reaction Design's fast, accurate and cost-effective modeling is critical to developing products that translate reliably to real-world functionality and lead to new advancements in engine and fuel technology."

    In addition to gaining a better understanding of combustion dynamics through CFD modeling, the EPA intends to use ANSYS' detailed soot modeling capabilities to more accurately predict soot mass and particle size distribution, important metrics in the standards.

    Verizon Digital Media Services Launches Cloud-Based Web Application Firewall That Increases Defenses Against CyberattacksOffering Sets a New Standard for Rule-Based Detection Capabilities in the Cloud, Providing Greater Control, Visibility and up to 900 Percent Faster Updates

    NEW YORK, July 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In an initiative that constitutes a major advancement in the fight to protect websites and Web applications from cyberattacks, Verizon Digital Media Services is announcing the beta launch of a cloud-based Web application firewall. The Verizon WAF sets a new standard for reaction time to attacks: Once a new exploit has been identified, WAF rule sets -- procedures that control access to websites -- can be selected and deployed worldwide within minutes.

    The Verizon WAF has more rule sets deployed to the cloud than other cloud alternatives. And a tightly integrated content delivery network and WAF command-and-control plane give customers more controls and tools to block and fend off attackers.

    "In initial testing we found the Verizon WAF to be extremely intuitive with a level of control not seen in other cloud-based WAFs," said Charles Hachtmann, chief technology officer of Novica, an online retailer of artisan-crafted gifts, decor and jewelry. "Furthermore, the integration of the WAF into the Verizon EdgeCast Control Center significantly reduced our learning curve."

    WAFs, an increasingly important security service needed to protect websites and Web applications, have traditionally been deployed on customers' premises and have involved complex customizations to support the applications they protect. By contrast, a WAF deployed in the cloud offers customers cost savings, on-demand scalability, always-on capabilities and swift time-to-market benefits.

    The Verizon Digital Media Services cloud deployed WAF service offers an affordable, CDN-integrated, always up-to-date solution for protecting websites and increasing their performance. It delivers a broad set of rules to combat a wide range of possible attacks.

    This is accomplished by supporting a combination of WAF rule sets that work in tandem: the generalized ModSecurity Core Rule Set from the Open Web Application Security Project, known as OWASP, and the advanced, commercial rule set from Trustwave, a leader in Web security. Both rule sets, as well as the ModSecurity WAF the Verizon WAF is built on, are backed by Trustwave threat intelligence and research.

    "In today's Web application-threat landscape, organizations should employ security in layers where it is more cost-effective to block easy-to-spot attacks in the cloud, in combination with deeper analysis at the customer location," said Andy Bokor, general manager of Threat Intelligence and Research at Trustwave. "We applaud Verizon for using ModSecurity and the Trustwave commercial rules, as they are a perfect fit for Web application defense in a cloud architecture."

    The level of control offered to the customer also is a significant step forward in cloud-based security. Updates can be pushed out in less than five minutes to all Verizon EdgeCast servers on a worldwide basis - up to 900 percent faster than competitive offerings.

    The WAF is part of the Verizon Digital Media Services Defend product suite, which includes built-in protection against network-layer distributed denial of service attacks and origin-cloaking capabilities via Origin Shield.

    BELLEVUE, Wash., July 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --, one of the world's largest full service online travel sites*, unveiled today the launch of Expedia+ rewards, a new and enhanced customer loyalty program.

    "We continue to evolve Expedia+ Rewards to ensure it's the best travel loyalty program for the way real people want to travel. At the core of the program is our belief that the business trip you have to take to Ohio or that family trip you'd rather avoid but can't should get you closer to that beach or ski trip of your dreams," said David Doctorow, Chief Marketing & Strategy Officer and Senior Vice President, Global Marketing of "Over the last 18 months, we've incorporated real traveler feedback to improve the program by making it easier to earn points faster on nearly all parts of your trip regardless of which hotel you stay at or airline you fly. From there we've made accessing travel rewards better, so Expedia customers can get upgrades and amenities at more top hotels, redeem points for more parts of their trip and get the level of priority service and freedom of choice that great travelers crave."

    As an Expedia+ rewards member, travelers are also privy to the Expedia Hotel Price Guarantee that ensures extended price match up until midnight before check-in, access to member exclusive offers and, through December 31, 2014, double value on +VIP Access hotel coupons. Enrollment into the program at the +blue level is free and immediate.

    Fresh to the program is the Expedia +silver level, a new membership tier offering a wide range of benefits including: 10% bonus points on point eligible purchases, 250 extra points when booking one of more than 1,400 +VIP Access hotels and exclusive amenities at over 700 +VIP Access hotels. Amenities vary by hotel and could include a bottle of wine, an upgrade or a spa treatment voucher. Finally, members at the Expedia+ silver level will receive priority service from a dedicated group of customer service agents.

    In addition to the +silver benefits, Expedia +gold members - formerly Expedia(R) Elite Plus(R) members - earn 30% bonus points on top of base points and will receive room upgrades whenever available at more than 1,400 +VIP Access hotels worldwide. Status can be achieved by either dollars spent or room nights stayed. This structure allows more members than ever to attain elite status with the introduction of the new +silver tier, which is attained after booking only seven qualifying room nights or spending $5,000 annually on, and the new +gold tier, which is attained after booking 15 qualifying room nights or with $10,000 annual spend.

    Current Expedia Rewards members will keep their points and history intact and will be able to track their progress toward elite status on their Expedia+ rewards page.

    Unisys Cited as a Leader in Independent Research Firm's Report on ITSM Implementation Services ProvidersUnisys is only provider to score highest possible rating for value proposition; also earns highest rating for investment to support strategy

    BLUE BELL, Pa., July 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Unisys Corporation today announced that it has been named a "Leader" in IT service management (ITSM) in Forrester Research, Inc.'s June 2014 report "The Forrester Wave((TM)): North American ITSM Implementation Services Providers, Q2 2014."

    Unisys was one of 13 ITSM services providers invited to participate in the Forrester Wave report, which notes that "an emerging trend for firms is the agenda of business technology (BT), which differs from the IT agenda. IT focuses on delivering internal technology-based services, while Forrester defines BT as [the] technology, systems, and processes to win, serve, and retain customers."

    The report states, "Forrester believes that going forward, the firms that will succeed will be the ones that focus on BT and deliver customer experience improvements rather than just internal processes."

    Forrester rated the participating providers against 15 criteria in three key areas: current offering, strategy and market presence. Value proposition was one criterion for evaluation of each provider's current offering, and Unisys was the only provider to score a 5.00 - the highest possible rating - in that category. Unisys also achieved the highest possible score for investment to support strategy. The company was one of only two providers to score a 5.00 for that category.

    In evaluating Unisys as a Leader, Forrester notes, "Unisys states that IT has been the 'engine room' of the organization but now needs to be the innovator of the business by leveraging technology to differentiate the business' product offerings. As part of the preparation for this transformation, Unisys brings best practices and prebuilt IP to optimize and automate current processes and to create more self-service channels for users."

    In discussing evaluation of current offerings, the Forrester report says, "vendors scored high when they were able to show broad support of marketwide best practices through their prebuilt IP and accelerators, coverage of different vendor tools, and business focus."

    "We are honored that Forrester has named Unisys a Leader in IT service management," said Ron Frankenfield, president, Unisys Enterprise Services. "We have made a major commitment to delivering a services-based ITSM solution that can be tied more closely to business processes, implemented more quickly and managed more comprehensively than competitive solutions so enterprises can quickly empower their people with on-demand access to the personalized services they need to serve customers better. We believe that our positioning in this report provides a powerful validation for that approach."

    Edge Service Management, Unisys' key offering, is a comprehensive, standards-based solution that enables IT organizations to focus on making employees more productive by better connecting IT services to related business processes. Delivered via a cloud-based as-a-service model, the Unisys solution uses prebuilt modules, advanced analytics tools and proven methodologies that enable clients to achieve better business results by proactively managing both services and the underlying IT infrastructure, rather than simply reacting to service events.

    Unisys can implement the solution for clients in as few as 45 days, compared to the six months or more that other ITSM deployments typically take. To date, more than 160 Unisys clients have implemented the cloud-based ITSM solution.
