    Trend Micro Offers Free Heartbleed Scanners for Computer and Mobile UsersEnables Internet users to determine if websites and Android apps are vulnerable to OpenSSL bug

    DALLAS, April 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- To help Internet users protect themselves from the Heartbleed bug that is eroding SSL security features on websites worldwide, Trend Micro Incorporated today announced the release of two free Heartbleed scanners for computers and mobile devices designed to verify whether they are communicating with servers that have been compromised by the Heartbleed bug.

    The solutions, Trend Micro(TM) Heartbleed Detector, a Chrome browser plug-in, and an Android mobile app, are accessible in the Chrome Web Store and Google Play app store, respectively.

    Available for Mac and Windows-based computer users, the Trend Micro Heartbleed Detector is a multi-platform plug-in for Chrome that enables users to check for vulnerable URLs and installs with a single click. Trend Micro researchers have also discovered that mobile apps are just as vulnerable to the Heartbleed bug as websites are. To mitigate this threat, Trend Micro has developed the Heartbleed Detector to check apps on a user's device and the servers they communicate with, to determine if installed apps are vulnerable to the OpenSSL bug. If vulnerable apps are, the detector then prompts the user with the option to uninstall the app.

    "Trend Micro has responded to the Heartbleed threat by offering tools to all Internet users as a solution to protect their personal data," said Raimund Genes, Chief Technology Officer, Trend Micro. "With in-app purchases and financial transactions on mobile devices becoming the norm, Trend Micro felt it was vital to offer users a solution designed to enable them to continue operating their devices without worry. Heartbleed is a problem that may never entirely go away, but we are committed to providing and updating our solutions to best protect the data of our customers, and provide essential security on each device they use."

    Effective today, users can download Trend Micro's Heartbleed Scanners for their computers and mobile devices by visiting or the mobile link.

    Grey And The World Wildlife Fund Use Snapchat To Raise Awareness Of Endangered AnimalsThe #LastSelfie Campaign Calls on People to Act Using Social Media

    NEW YORK, April 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and Grey Group ad agencies, 41?29! in Turkey and Uncle Grey in Denmark, have launched a new campaign to raise awareness about endangered and threatened species. The species in focus are tigers, rhinos, orangutans, pandas and polar bears, which could become threatened as the icecaps in the Arctic melt at a high speed.

    In order to reach young people and make them act to save endangered species, WWF is using an innovative approach and channel, Snapchat. The campaign compares the fleeting existence of a Snapchat post to the threat of extinction facing many species.

    Images sent through Snapchat can't be saved and can be seen only for a few seconds. Just like real life moments. WWF has created a series of selfies showing endangered species and calls them the #LastSelfie. These selfies will disappear on Snapchat and young people are expected to share and spread them in social media. The emphasis of this new campaign is to underline that if we don't take action in real life, these species will disappear for real.

    The campaign is running in Turkey and Denmark.

    People can join the campaign by following the Snapchat accounts of Denmark and Turkey, wwf_dk and wwf_turkiye, respectively. Share what they receive to spread the word and help by supporting WWF on .

    See the short film on the campaign. Download the selfie posters.

Alternatively, with the GibbsCAM Autodesk Inventor Add-in, the Inventor user can transfer files directly into GibbsCAM with the "Transfer to GibbsCAM" menu option of Inventor software running on the same workstation. Once machining processes are defined in GibbsCAM, they are automatically updated when the Inventor model is revised.

    In addition to its perennial certification of GibbsCAM for Autodesk Inventor, Gibbs and Associates offers a GibbsCAM Plug-in for Autodesk Vault [ ] to allow interaction between GibbsCAM and the Autodesk data management software, is an authorized member of the Autodesk Developer Network [ ] and is an Autodesk Authorized Independent Software Vendor.

    Palo Alto Networks Again Positioned in the Leaders Quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Network Firewalls

    SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Palo Alto Networks(R) , the leader in enterprise security, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner Inc. in the "leaders" quadrant of the April 15, 2014 "Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Network Firewalls." This is the third year that Palo Alto Networks has been recognized as a leader in the Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Firewalls.

    According to the report, "through 2018, more than 75% of enterprises will continue to seek network security from a different vendor than their network infrastructure vendor." The report also states, "products must be able to support single-enterprise firewall deployments and large and/or complex deployments, including branch offices, multi-tiered demilitarized zones (DMZs) and, increasingly, the option to include virtual versions."


    --  "We're thrilled to once again be named a leader in Gartner's Magic
    Quadrant for enterprise firewalls report.  We believe this echoes the
    momentum we've been experiencing as enterprise organizations see the
    value of a truly next-generation security platform - one that safely
    enables all applications and proactively prevents cyber threats for all
    users on any device across any network."-   Rene Bonvanie, chief
    marketing officer at Palo Alto Networks

    Nine years ago, Palo Alto Networks changed the network security industry with the introduction of the next-generation firewall. This breakthrough architecture brought unparalleled control through the safe enablement of applications, and exceptional levels of protection by blocking all known threats operating across a multitude of different vectors.

    Two years ago, we again changed the industry with the introduction of WildFire and a next-generation threat cloud that focuses on detecting and defending against the most advanced, unknown threats. Most recently, through our acquisition of Cyvera, we added unique endpoint protection to the platform. The combination of our next-generation endpoint technology, our next-generation firewall and our next-generation threat cloud represents the most innovative, integrated, and automated enterprise security platform in the market.

    With over 16,000 customers, our momentum is a testament to our innovative approach that protects organizations based on what matters most in today's dynamic computing environments: applications, users and content - not just ports and protocols - and protecting them from the most advanced cyber threats.

    Charter Announces Launch of 802.11ac WiFi router - Capable of Providing the Fastest WiFi

    STAMFORD, Conn., April 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Charter Communications, Inc. today announced that beginning May 16(th), it will begin rolling out a fully-managed dual-band concurrent 802.11ac wireless router, bringing Charter customers the capability to receive the fastest WiFi experience.

    Given that the majority of Internet usage in the home is over WiFi, wireless router capability often dictates the end customer experience. The latest wireless specification, 802.11ac, ratified by the IEEE in January 2014, provides much higher throughput than the previous specification (802.11n). Charter's new 802.11ac router, supplied by NETGEAR((R)), is capable of delivering well over the maximum 100Mbps offered by Charter Internet Ultra, throughout the entire home.

    "In most situations, the end customer experience is either limited by the maximum wired speed of the Internet connection, or the capabilities of the wireless router. With the combination of Charter's fast wired Internet speeds and the new dual-band 802.11ac high performance router, customers will be able to unleash the full power of Charter Internet with superior speeds throughout the home." - Jim Blackley, Executive Vice President of Engineering.

    Charter's router was tested by Allion Engineering Services to deliver the fastest WiFi speeds amongst competitors. Charter is the first ISP in its markets to offer a high performance 802.11ac wireless router.

    When the United States entered the Space Race in 1958 by launching the Explorer 1 satellite, EaglePicher batteries were on board. Since then, EPT has contributed to every major US space mission, including many manned flights. After fuel cells failed onboard the Apollo 13 spacecraft in 1970, EPT's silver zinc batteries provided power for the life support and guidance control systems that returned astronauts safely. High-profile missions including the Hubble Space Telescope, the International Space Station, and Mars Curiosity have all relied upon EaglePicher batteries in recent years. Currently, there are more than 500 spacecraft in orbit powered by EPT products, involving numerous U.S. and international missions. The total accumulation of time will exceed 2,000,000,000 hours on May 11(th) at approximately 23:32 CDT.

    "This is a very exciting time for EaglePicher. While we're on the brink of an important milestone of 2 billion cell hours in space without a mission failure, we continue to work toward new and innovative technologies," said Ron Nowlin, Vice President and General Manager of Aerospace Systems. "The solutions we're developing today were simply unfathomable just a few short years ago."

    EaglePicher will celebrate the 2 billion hours achievement at the 30(th) Annual National Space Symposium in Colorado Springs on May 22nd.

    EaglePicher Technologies is on the forefront of numerous battery chemistries including lithium ion, thermal, silver zinc, nickel hydrogen, lithium carbon monofluoride, lithium thionyl chloride, lithium manganese dioxide, lithium sulfur dioxide, and reserve lithium oxyhalide.

    Sabre personalizes travel with the launch of three new data-driven products

    - Sabre's data insights enable travel companies to customize travel experiences

    SOUTHLAKE, Texas, April 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Sabre [] , a global technology company serving the travel industry, today launched three data-driven travel solutions - Customer Experience Manager, Guest Connect Upsell and TripCase Corporate - to help travel companies design and offer a more personalized shopping and travel experience for travelers.

    Logo - []

    Customer Experience Manager [] is a data-rich software solution to help airlines leverage traveler insights to deliver a highly personalized experience. With Customer Experience Manager, airlines can automate many manual customer service functions and stimulate revenue - all while significantly enhancing the customer experience. Examples include promoting targeted ancillaries such as Wi-Fi based on past history or propensity to buy, and proactively rewarding a high-value passenger with a seat upgrade in the case of a flight delay or service disruption. Going further, Customer Experience Manager can interpret customer insights to offer travelers discounts or promotions for target markets and travel dates.

    South African low-cost carrier kulula is the first airline to adopt Customer Experience Manager.

    Guest Connect Upsell [] is a new hotel booking capability that allows guests to upgrade to a higher room class instantly after their booking is confirmed via targeted offers based on the guest's unique preferences. Guest Connect Upsell enables hoteliers to generate incremental revenue by precisely targeting enhanced services and options that are aligned specifically to a guest's individual preferences.

    Trump Hotel Collection is the first hotelier globally to use Sabre's Guest Connect Upsell solution.

    TripCase Corporate [] is the business travel version of Sabre's popular TripCase consumer mobile app used to manage over 11 million trips annually. With TripCase Corporate, travelers can make travel bookings and reservations from their smartphone and identify which trips are for business reasons. This lets a company better track travel spend, safety and security.

    General Electric and Hogg Robinson Group are among the first users of TripCase Corporate.

    Sabre develops technology solutions like these so travel companies can deliver on consumer's growing expectations to have intuitive, personalized experiences, including how they shop for travel. A recent IBM survey of more than 28,000 consumers supports this notion with 59 percent saying they would provide lifestyle information in exchange for more targeted and smarter shopping experiences.

    "Personalization makes travel better, and the only way to scale personalization is through technology, said Tom Klein, CEO and President of Sabre. "As a global technology company supporting the travel industry worldwide, Sabre is leveraging the latest developments in mobile, data and analytics to deliver personalization capabilities to enable airlines, hotels and travel agencies to stay ahead of the rapidly-evolving demands of their travelers."

    SabreĀ® is a leading technology provider to the global travel and tourism industry. Sabre's software, data, mobile and distribution solutions are used by hundreds of airlines and thousands of hotel properties to manage critical operations, such as passenger and guest reservations, revenue management, and flight, network and crew management. Sabre also operates a leading global travel marketplace, processing over $100 billion of estimated travel spend in 2013 by connecting travel suppliers to their most valued customers, the business traveler. Headquartered in Southlake, Texas, USA, Sabre employs approximately 10,000 people in approximately 60 countries around the world.

    Akamai Publishes Prolexic Q1 2014 Global DDoS Attack ReportAttackers chose reflection versus infection techniques to achieve larger DDoS attacks114 percent increase in average peak bandwidth of DDoS attacks in Q1 vs. Q4 2013The Media and Entertainment industry was the target of the majority of malicious packets

    CAMBRIDGE, Mass., April 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Akamai Technologies, Inc. , the leading provider of cloud services for delivering, optimizing and securing online content and business applications, today announced availability of the Prolexic Q1 2014 Global DDoS Attack Report. Prolexic Technologies, now part of Akamai, is a recognized leader in Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) protection services, and has produced the quarterly Global DDoS Attack Report since 2011. The report, which provides analysis and insight into the global DDoS threat landscape, can be downloaded at

    "In Q1, DDoS attackers relied less upon traditional botnet infection in favor of reflection and amplification techniques, a trend Prolexic has been seeing for some time," said Stuart Scholly, senior vice president and general manager of Security at Akamai Technologies. "Instead of using a network of zombie computers, the newer DDoS toolkits abuse Internet protocols that are available on open or vulnerable servers and devices. We believe this approach can lead to the Internet becoming a ready-to-use botnet for malicious actors."

    Prolexic has observed the most abused protocols to be Character Generator (CHARGEN), Network Time Protocol (NTP) and Domain Name System (DNS). These protocols, which are all based on the User Datagram Protocol (UDP), may be favored as they allow attackers to hide their identity. In addition, amplification-based attacks can deliver a massive flood of data at the target while requiring only a relatively small output from the source.

    New reflection and amplification attack tools can deliver a powerful punch. Q1 saw a 39 percent increase in average bandwidth and the largest-ever DDoS attack to cross the Prolexic DDoS mitigation network. This attack involved multiple reflection techniques combined with a traditional botnet-based application attack to generate peak traffic of more than 200 Gbps (gigabits per second) and 53.5 Mpps (million packets per second).

    This quarter saw more than half of the DDoS attack traffic aimed at the Media and Entertainment industry. This one industry was targeted by 54 percent of the malicious packets mitigated by Prolexic during active DDoS attacks in Q1.

    Highlights from Prolexic's Q4 2014 Global DDoS Attack Report:

    Compared to Q1 2013

    --  47 percent increase in total DDoS attacks
    --  9 percent decrease in average attack bandwidth
    --  68 percent increase in infrastructure (Layer 3 & 4) attacks
    --  21 percent decrease in application (Layer 7) attacks
    --  50 percent decrease in average attack duration: 35 vs. 17 hours
    --  133 percent increase in average peak bandwidth

    Compared to Q4 2013

    --  18 percent increase in total DDoS attacks
    --  39 percent increase in average attack bandwidth
    --  35 percent increase in infrastructure (Layer 3 & 4) attacks
    --  36 percent decrease in application (Layer 7) attacks
    --  24 percent decrease in average attack duration: 23 vs. 17 hours
    --  114 percent increase in average peak bandwidth

    Analysis and emerging trends

    Innovation in the DDoS marketplace has given rise to tools that can create greater damage with fewer resources. Q1's high-volume, infrastructure-based attacks were made possible by the availability of easy-to-use DDoS tools from the DDoS-as-a-service marketplace. These tools are designed by malicious hackers to deliver greater power and convenience into the hands of less skillful attackers.

    For example, in Q1, NTP reflection attacks surged, likely due to the availability of easy-to-use DDoS attack tools that support this reflection technique. The NTP flood method went from accounting for less than 1 percent of all attacks in the prior quarter to reaching nearly the same popularity as SYN flood attacks, a perennial favorite among DDoS attackers. Neither CHARGEN nor NTP attack vectors were detected in Q1 2013 but accounted for 23 percent of all infrastructure attacks mitigated by Prolexic in Q1 2014.

    These DDoS trends are discussed in detail in Prolexic's Q1 2014 Global DDoS Attack Report. A complimentary copy is available as a free PDF download at

    New Service from FICO's Fair Isaac Advisors Group Takes Analytics-Based Approach to Boosting Portfolio Profitability

    SAN JOSE, Calif., April 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- FICO , a leading predictive analytics and decision management software company, today announced a new service designed to help retail banks discover new ways to increase portfolio profitability. The Fair Isaac((R)) Advisors P&L Insight Service, offered by the Fair Isaac((R)) Advisors consulting group, provides financial services organizations with an analysis of their portfolio trends and profit drivers, along with portfolio-level profitability forecasts and what-if scenarios for strategic planning purposes.

    Tightening banking regulations and economic turbulence have made it harder for portfolio managers to forecast results, and also to increase profitability. At the same time, senior management and bank directors are demanding detailed strategic plans that clearly spell out the expected impact on the bank's financial targets. With Fair Isaac Advisors P&L Insight Service, Fair Isaac Advisors provide tactical and strategic recommendations for capitalizing on opportunities and mitigating risks revealed in the analysis, creating a clear roadmap of actions for improved profitability.

    "In our work with retail banks around the world, we see risk managers and portfolio managers struggling to consistently provide accurate forecasts, due to economic uncertainty and competitive market shifts," said Robert Duque-Ribeiro, vice president and general manager of Fair Isaac Advisors. "This is particularly true for banks that have grown through mergers and acquisitions and those that are undergoing a conversion or divestiture. We are also seeing banks that have aggressive growth plans but stagnant results. With Fair Isaac Advisors P&L Insight Service, we provide continuous indicators to our clients on the health of their portfolios, and combine the output with the analysis of seasoned advisors to help institutions uncover opportunities, detect signs of trouble, drive growth and facilitate sound strategic planning. What's more, we will deliver the results quarterly and the analysis in a matter of days."

    "By combining our portfolio-level data with FICO's proprietary analytics and expertise, we have been able to determine both positive and negative portfolio trends, identify portfolio opportunities and gather insights into our portfolio's future performance," said Kevin Takac, director of Quantitative Analysis at KeyBank. "Fair Isaac Advisors provided us with clear observations and recommendations for areas of improvement that have enhanced our business, ensuring we can mitigate future risk, realize risk-adjusted growth, and use solid information for our risk management planning. We found our portfolio advisory, assessment and analysis extremely useful for current planning and beyond."

    Unlike traditional P&L assessments, the P&L Insight Service examines potential impacts across the credit lifecycle, including marketing, originations, customer management and collections. FICO's advisors can rapidly generate actionable insights using a proprietary FICO tool with built-in forecasting models that can be tuned to the particular dynamics of a bank's portfolio. Advisors convert 12 to 24 months of portfolio-level data into coherent business intelligence, provide automated trend analysis of profit drivers, deliver actionable and quantifiable recommendations, and assist with strategic planning activities for short-, medium-, and long-range objective-setting.

    "By combining the bank's data with FICO's proprietary analytics and expertise, we have been able to deliver phenomenal results for our clients," said Jose Tagunicar, a principal scientist at FICO, who directs the new service. "For example, we helped one bank achieve a 10 percent improvement in average credit line yields and a 14 percent increase in revenue with only a 1 percent increase in losses."

    Fair Isaac Advisors' mission is to bring analytic innovation and business expertise to refine businesses' decision-making process. Advisors design and devise visionary approaches to business challenges, relying on years of experience working with clients around the world. They leverage new data science and proven analytics techniques, along with FICO's market-leading decision management applications, to drive success and improve performance.

    FIRST(R) Robotics Students Get Opportunity to Use Tableau Software to Analyze Data for CompetitionTableau Helps Not-For-Profit Organization Draw Awareness to Benefits of Data Analysis in Robotics

    SEATTLE, April 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- A group of high-school students are proving that the ability to see and understand data is not only important in the business world, but in the world of robotics competitions as well. FIRST(R) (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) is exposing students in its FIRST(R) Robotics Competition (FRC(R)) program to Tableau Software to learn how to analyze data gathered in preparation for the 2014 FIRST Robotics Competition season. Students have access to Tableau free through the company's Tableau for Students program.

    FIRST became aware of Tableau when students from Raisbeck Aviation High School in Washington State began using the software to analyze their "scouting" data, a mix of qualitative and quantitative data collected about their robots used in the FIRST Robotics Competition. The team discovered that with Tableau, it could build a system to visualize and analyze data on the fly rather than spending weeks trying to find results using only a spreadsheet tool.

    "Before Tableau, we spent weeks trying to put together a system that would allow us to track and find insights from our robotics data," said Quinn Schiller, a student and member of Raisbeck Aviation High School's FRCteam. "I realized I could get free access to Tableau through its program for students, and in just a few hours we were creating visualizations and finding meaning in our data."

    The Puget Sound high school went on to win every FRC regional competition they attended, and went undefeated in their qualification rounds at the FIRST Championship in St. Louis, Mo. that year. The FIRST Robotics Competition organizers took notice and decided to introduce its broader membership to Tableau.

    "We're excited about adding a data analysis tool to the FIRST Robotics Competition's Kit of Parts," said Frank Merrick, Director of FRC. "It's always exciting to work with enthusiastic suppliers to incorporate things that teams have discovered and used effectively in to the assortment of items available to all teams."

    Tableau is working with FIRST to monitor and learn from how its students are using its products. It has also built a series of instructional tutorials for FIRST students that teach them how to use Tableau for this type of data.

    "We've found that what was happening with the FIRST Robotics Competition teams wasn't all that different than what happens in businesses today," said Jason Schumacher, Academic Marketing Coordinator at Tableau Software. "They were collecting a lot of data around their projects, but they weren't effectively analyzing it to find insights or make decisions. Once the Raisbeck Aviation High School team was able to make sense of their data, they had a big advantage over the other teams."

    ANSYS Honors Students From Pune University And Vellore Institute Of Technology With Simulation AwardBAJA SAEIndia teams leverage engineering simulation to optimize all-terrain vehicle design

    PITTSBURGH, April 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- For the fourth consecutive year, ANSYS congratulated two teams competing in the BAJA SAEIndia all-terrain vehicle (ATV) development contest by presenting them with an Engineering Simulation award. Team Nemesis from the College of Engineering at Pune University and Vellore Institute of Technology's Team Kshatriya successfully leveraged ANSYS simulation for their individual ATV designs. Teams don't typically have the time or funds to build multiple prototypes, so employing engineering simulation fosters increased design reliability and performance at a low cost, within tight deadlines.

    Specifically, Team Nemesis used ANSYS((R)) Mechanical(TM) to analyze its vehicle's suspension components, chassis, gearbox casing and brake pedal to reduce the weight of its ATV while ensuring maximum strength. Also taking advantage of ANSYS Mechanical, Team Kshatriya focused on incorporating a lighter and stronger alloy for its roll cage and used computational fluid dynamics technology to optimize the performance of its ATV components as a system.

    "ANSYS instituted the Engineering Simulation award in 2010 to recognize student competition teams and organizations who take advantage of simulation to optimize their designs, whether it's an ATV or formula-type race car," said Murali Kardiramangalam, academic program director at ANSYS. "These contests are crucial to facilitate learning simulation outside of the classroom and by providing software, training and support to these teams, ANSYS is helping to nurture the next generation of innovative engineers."

    BAJA SAEIndia is a national competition organized by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE). This year's event was held at NATRIP in Pithampur, Indore, India, with 327 teams officially registered and only 125 teams qualifying for the final race.
