By admin, 31 marca, 2014, No Comment

Global Continuity South Africa – a group company of JSE-listed Metrofile Holdings Limited – has strengthened its management team with the recent appointment of Greg Comline as its new General Manager. The appointment is in line with the group’s strategy to expand its current offerings to better cater for client’s requirements.

Commenting on his new role, Comline says he will drive efficiencies throughout the group’s operations to best deliver tailored solutions to meet clients’ needs. In line with this, Global Continuity is investing in appropriate technologies so as to deliver Business Continuity services efficiently.

Comline predicts that over the next 12 months local businesses will continue to improve their resilience for business continuity through virtualisation and mobile technologies. “We anticipate an increased demand for efficient online backups and for new ways for clients to use disaster recovery sites”.

In many ways, South African businesses are following the trends that we are seeing globally, says Comline. “Companies are becoming more resilient and are reducing the need for large work area recovery sites. As a result, companies are demanding efficient solutions from business continuity service providers. In alignment with this, Global Continuity South Africa is basing current and future investment on providing scalability and flexibility to clients through a range of solutions.”

Global Continuity South Africa will be working closely with Metrofile to expand its online backup solutions with the end goal of enabling clients to securely back up their data with faster recovery times, says Comline. “This will assist clients with the recovery of their operations, meaning that clients will be able to consolidate a number of services through Metrofile.”

Comline’s previous experience includes developing the Deloitte Digital business where he assisted clients with internet and mobile strategies and developing solutions based on changing technologies. Prior to Deloitte, he completed his Master of Business Administration through the Gordon Institute of Business Science and managed manufacturing systems at South African Breweries.

 

Jasco Converged Solutions reduces large-scale communications complexity

By admin, 31 marca, 2014, No Comment

Jasco Electronics Holdings (The Jasco Group), through its Converged Solutions Division, has refreshed its entire IT infrastructure in a move to consolidate its IT communications and harness the latest technology to better serve its customers.

Says Paul McKibbin, MD of Jasco Networks, “We started off with a complete audit of the Group’s IT infrastructure which allowed us to identify where the pain points were and what their current strengths and weaknesses are.”

“We soon realised that there were a lot of disparate systems in different divisions and branches, mostly legacy systems which were acquired through acquisitions and mergers. This made the infrastructure difficult to administrate and maintain. Additionally, with users using so many different devices to access the corporate network, we also identified certain security risks at various end-points of the infrastructure.”

He says knowing that IT is an enabler for business to provide a better service to its customers, the group realised Converged Solutions provide the business with an edge over its competitors, adding that as businesses move to a more cloud-based environment, the demand for bandwidth dramatically increases, which needs to be carefully managed.

After presenting its findings and recommendations to the board, the Division got the go-ahead to implement a robust communications infrastructure that allows for fast, secure access via Fibre connectivity and wireless LAN to hosted email and the Internet, as well as Voice over IP (VoIP) at its head office.

“From a Jasco Converged Solutions perspective, the Jasco Group is a typical customer that we serve as their strategy, like ours, is to move to a more managed services and applications in a data environment,” he adds.

Jasco Converged Solutions assisted the Group to simplify and reduce the costs of its inter-branch communications with one invoice from one service provider. With this converged communication environment, the number of disparate services have been reduced and consolidated under one technology umbrella, managed by Jasco Converged Solutions. This not only simplified the communications environment but also drastically reduced costs as well.

Since the implementation of the VoIP platform at Jasco head office in April 2013, the group has realised savings of 31% on previous costs over a six month period from April to September. Communications represent a significant cost centre for the business. The savings realised from the new solution will continue to pay off over the long-term.

“This was a great opportunity for us to demonstrate our capabilities to the Group, and by providing the services in-house, it also provided a case study for us to showcase to our current and potential customers. Overall, we have reduced the group’s technology complexity. The network is now easier to manage and troubleshoot if there are problems. Furthermore, there is one point of accountability and a better level of support via a single support centre,” he concludes.

E-toll Whistle Blower compels OUTA’s latest complaint to Public Protector

By admin, 31 marca, 2014, No Comment

After receiving damning information from a source inside the E-toll system the Opposition to Urban Tolling Alliance has lodged a subsidiary complaint with The Public Protector against Sanral for alleged mismanagement of the Gauteng Open Road Tolling scheme. The allegations stem from experiences of a well-placed source inside the system, who confirms OUTA’s views of mismanagement stemming from Sanral having embarked on an extremely high risk strategy to develop an electronic tolling infrastructure for the entire country, without testing key assumptions or engaging sufficiently with key stakeholders.

After six weeks of careful relationship building to create mutual trust and confidence OUTA consultant John Clarke mediated the complaint on behalf of the person. “OUTA contracted me to provide my ears to harassed, frightened, bemused and angry motorists caught in Sanral’s web of manipulation, and lodge a collective complaint on their behalf with the Public Protector” Clarke explained. “Unexpectedly in the midst of the avalanche was a lengthy narrative from an insider who could no longer abide the injurious experience of working with ‘arrogant fools to drag me …into their maelstrom’”. He described them as ‘arrogant and dangerous’ people who ‘steam-roll public opinion … bully politicians, and business people and do not act in the interests of the country’. After a gradual process of feeling each other out, the distance between us closed and we found a great deal of common cause and alignment of interests between OUTA and a key stakeholder inside the system.”

Given the adversarial relationship between SANRAL and OUTA, after careful consideration it was decided that it would be in the best interests of all parties for the Public Protector, as an impartial body with powers of subpoena, to investigate the allegations.

Wayne Duvenage, chair of OUTA hailed the disclosures as a “breakthrough” which he hoped would start laying the table for meaningful multi-lateral engagement with all stakeholders to transcend the mess, as opposed to the past ineffective talk shops hosted by the Inter Ministerial Committee and other bodies over the past two years. Duvenage said that “despite legal and diologue attemts to have the authorities come to their senses on the rationality and workability of e-tolling, now that the system has commenced we have seen a multitude of problems unfold and the verdict of the court of public opinion, whereby the majority of the freeway users are not fitting e-tags nor prepared to foot the bill for a scheme that was never designed or implimented with the best interests of the people at its core. The system has been poorly planned with insufficient congisence given to the practical workability, public support and a host of very probable unintended consequences at the outset. The whistle-blower has been in a position to confirm our suspicions. I have also communicated with the Minister of Transport as well as indicated our desire to brief the Parlimentary Portfolio Committee on Transport on our views and input on e-tolling, but given that there is an election underway, it would appear the climate and appetite for an intervention at this level is not right at this time, which is a pity, as the mess unfolding will just get worse.”

Fortunately the Public Protector has proved herself a fearless protector of constitutional rights and the rule of law, so we have decided to steer things her way. We don’t want to jeopardise the informants position or prejudice the investigative process or by saying too much at this stage. I can say that the complaint alleges abuse of power, dishonesty, maladministration and systemic problems in the risk assessment and management process within Sanral, dating back to the tender process and commencement of contractual negotiations with Kapsch TrafficCom back in 2007/8.”

 

Live proactive monitoring and surveillance helps curb cash-in-transit heists

By admin, 31 marca, 2014, No Comment

By Laurence Smith, Executive at Graphic Image Technologies

Of the many aspects of cash handling, cash-in-transit has typically been the most difficult to secure. Transportation of luxury goods and cash have always been targets for crime syndicates, and while the frequency of cash-in-transit heists may have reduced in recent years, it remains a challenge for cash handling and logistics organisations. The difficulty around cash-in-transit lies with the very nature of the task – the money is on the move. This makes surveillance problematic, and any action taken typically occurs after the fact, by which time it is too late to prevent the theft or catch the perpetrators. Remote live monitoring technologies designed specifically for the transportation sector provide the ideal solution, enabling constant, live, proactive surveillance to help ensure the safety not only of cash-in-transit, but also the people tasked with handling this often dangerous job.

While live monitoring and surveillance is by no means a new technology, advances in the field have made this especially suited to the transportation and logistics sector. Previously, solutions for goods and vehicles on the move relied heavily on large amounts of bandwidth to transmit footage, requiring at least 32 kilobits per second (kb/s) or more in order to stream.

This is of limited use, as the 3G signal required to achieve this is often sporadic and is generally only available in metropolitan hubs. As a result, when vehicles leave areas of 3G coverage, live feeds are disrupted, effectively exposing the vehicles to vulnerabilities as a result. In addition, the cost of constantly transmitting data can become onerous. New technology, however, has enabled high-quality live video streaming using any available mobile data connection, from 3G to GPRS, which is available practically everywhere in South Africa. These solutions are able to stream at as little as 8kbit/s, using a quarter of the bandwidth to ensure streaming even in areas without 3G coverage and reducing data costs significantly in the process.

Specialised live monitoring solutions, using a mobile Digital Video Recorder (DVR) with the addition of USB modems, create a constant video connection using available mobile connectivity. This enables cash handling organisations to keep a close eye on all of their vehicles at all times. As such, the appropriate authorities can quickly be alerted in the event of a dangerous situation. With GPS technology, control rooms can pinpoint vehicle location and speed too. This, combined with live video feeds, enables controllers to identify dangerous situations and create a more proactive approach to protecting cash assets and people.

In addition, several features of these solutions make them particularly suited to this sector. The DVR is encased in an anti-shock, vibration-resistant chassis to ensure reliability on the road, and built-in Wi-Fi enables the wireless backup of locally stored video to a storage server. Up to four cameras can be connected to the unit for more effective surveillance and sensors on vehicle doors can also be connected to the unit. Alarms can be triggered automatically upon events such as deviations from planned routes, abnormal speeds and stopping, and unauthorised opening of cargo doors, effectively acting as a panic button for drivers.

A complete mobile monitoring and surveillance solution can help to prevent cash-in-transit thefts and limit the vulnerability of vehicles on the move. Not only does surveillance act as a deterrent and as evidence after the fact, swift action can be taken should vehicles be hijacked en route, since the exact location and nature of the crime can be immediately identified. With crime syndicates continuing to target cash-in-transit and luxury goods transport vehicles, such a solution offers added security and peace of mind through 24×7 live monitoring, and enables a more proactive approach to securing these vehicles and their drivers.

 

Johnson Controls’ new modular mini-chiller provides affordable and scalable solutions

By admin, 31 marca, 2014, No Comment

Johnson Controls has introduced its line of modular mini chillers to provide easy installation, affordability and scalability for small and large facilities in South Africa. Each module is designed to integrate easily with each other, giving users the right amount of cooling or heating and cooling capacity based on changing needs. Customers can chose two options — air-cooled chiller or air-source heat pump – and combine up to eight units per central controller as well as integrate other building systems for maximum efficiency.

Says Russell Hattingh of Johnson Controls Systems & Service: “These mini modular chillers have been available globally for a number of years and have proven tremendously popular due to their small footprint providing robust and flexible design, ease of installation and cost effectiveness. With the launch of our mini-chillers globally, we bring these benefits to local users. They ship fast, are a breeze to install and easy to scale to the capacity needed.”

The chillers come with the base module assembled and are accompanied by component kits designed for fast assembly. A key differentiator in this size chiller is that a header pipe is built into the chiller. It is accompanied by a pipe kit designed to fit together easily with flex coupling, facilitating easy integration of more chillers in a number of configurations.

An integrated six-inch water pipe collector comes with Quick Victaulic connections, saving space and installation time, while water flow auto-balance functionality makes setup easy. A control box allows integration of up to eight units, defined as a set. A controller will also assist to manage cooling capacity, determining how much cooling is needed and what sequencing is needed on the installed sets.

Notes Hattingh: ““These products fill a niche where there is a need for fast, simple, affordable solutions that can grow alongside the needs of the user. These solutions also exist harmoniously with Johnson Controls’ other chiller ranges, so if users do want more sophisticated solutions (e.g., including variable speed drives, heat recovery, etc), they will work well together.”
Each model comes in three different capacities– cooling only (40kW, 60kW and 100kW capacities) or with a heat pump (44.5kW, 66kW and 102kW capacities).

BOX: Johnson Controls’ modular mini chiller
Benefits include: low cost, easy expandability, easy maintenance, flexible installation, redundancy (N+1), quick delivery, compact installation, intelligent defrost, low refrigerant charge, low noise, automated capacity adjustment

RS Components offers exclusive availability on TE Connectivity resistor lab kits

By admin, 29 marca, 2014, No Comment

25 kits provide wide range of resistance measurement features for power management, high precision, industrial and general-purpose applications

RS Components (RS), the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc (LSE:ECM), the world’s leading high service distributor of electronics and maintenance products, has announced exclusive availability of 25 resistor lab kits based on a prime selection of TE Connectivity’s fixed resistor series.

The TE resistor lab kits employ either thin-film or thick-film resistor technology and offer distinct features to provide a cost-effective resistance measurement platform for a wide range of applications.

Six of the kits are built around TE’s RL73 series – surface-mount (SMD) thick-film current sensing resistors with low Ohm resistance, which provide reduced power consumption in the design of low voltage power supplies and battery management applications. These devices feature a special metal glaze resistive element and a nickel barrier layer beneath the solder to prolong terminal life.

A further eight kits are based on the RN73 high stability precision resistor series, which offers a variety of power dissipations related to chip size ranging from 0402 to 2512. The temperature coefficient of resistance (TCR) of these devices descends to 5ppm/°C, whilst resistance tolerances are extremely low at 0.01%. These SMD thin-film resistors are produced with three sputtered layers to give optimum performance.

Also offering a high stability precision development environment are nine lab kits featuring TE’s CPF series. This thin-film resistor range provides TCR down to 15ppm/°C, and resistance tolerances of 0.01%.

All of the kits based on the RN73 and CPF high precision devices are specified in the Electronic Industries Association’s (EIA) standard IEC 63 E96 and E24 value grids, which are the preferred values for high accuracy and close tolerance requirements. Both resistor series feature accurate and uniform physical dimensions to ease placement in telemetry, sensing circuits, communications, industrial controls, and medical applications, for example.

For industrial and general-purpose use, a kit based on the high-power thick-film CRG series is available, offering a wide resistance range from 1 – 10M Ohms and tolerances of 1% and 5%.

A 3521 series-based resistor lab kit completes the set, combining low cost and high power characteristics. These SMD devices are suitable for auto placement in volume applications, including high frequency operations, owing to their short lead structure.

Check Point sandboxing technology tops zero-day malware block rates

By admin, 29 marca, 2014, No Comment

Check Point earned a malicious file catch rate of 99.83% in recent testing, compared to its nearest competitor’s 75%

Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. (Nasdaq: CHKP), a worldwide leader in securing the Internet, have announced that Check Point Threat Emulation Service, which protects organisations against new, unknown and targeted attacks before they infect a network, has the highest catch rate of malicious files. In recent benchmark testing, 600 malicious files were scanned through Check Point Threat Emulation and other competitive products. The results found that Check Point outperformed all of the others in this test, with a malicious file catch rate of 99.83%. The other competitive products detected an average of 53% of the files as malicious, with the highest competitor’s catch rate at 75%.

As the modern threat landscape evolves with more aggressive and destructive generations of cybercrime, hacktivism, cyber espionage and targeted attacks, Check Point Threat Emulation has accelerated detection and increased awareness of these threats. For example, it typically takes anti-virus and IPS detections nearly three days to detect unknown malware, while some malware can be left undetected for months or even years. Check Point’s global research found that a typical organisation downloads an unknown malware every 27 minutes. An integral part of Check Point’s multi-layered Threat Prevention solution, Threat Emulation discovers and prevents infections from undiscovered exploits, new variants of malware and targeted attacks by dynamically emulating files within a virtual sandbox.

Once identified, Check Point researchers immediately evaluate the behaviours and properties of these unknown threats and quickly develop protections. These protections are automatically distributed across all Check Point gateways globally utilising ThreatCloud. ThreatCloud is Check Point’s collaborative threat intelligence network that provides for automatic, real-time protection to the company’s worldwide customers.

“In the past 30 days alone, Check Point Threat Emulation detected over 53,000 previously undiscovered malware threats through emulation of over 8.8 million files. This staggering statistic is an example of the ever-increasing rate at which organisations are facing advanced and unknown attacks,” said Doros Hadjizenonos, sales manager for Check Point South Africa. “With a malicious file catch rate of over 99%, Threat Emulation provides our customers with the quickest protections against undiscovered malware in the industry’s most comprehensive, multi-layered security solution available.”

Among the 53,000 previously undiscovered malware threats, Check Point researchers recently published the discovery and analysis of a new malware variant designed to deliver the DarkComet remote access Trojan onto targeted systems. An EXE file hidden within a RAR archive file, this malware employed a sophisticated combination of obfuscation techniques to avoid detection by anti-malware solutions. At the time it was detected by Check Point’s Threat Emulation, this malware was not detected by any of the major anti-virus engines.

T-Systems promotes role of ICT in nation building

By admin, 29 marca, 2014, No Comment

“ICT has the potential to be far more than just a business enabler. In fact, technology in South Africa can be instrumental in nation-building. ”This is the view of Gert Schoonbee, Managing Director at T-Systems, speaking at The Human Capital Engine’s recent ‘Nation Building in SA’ Conference in Johannesburg. The event connected C-level executives from various local companies, and explored the evolving role of private enterprise in developing our country – 20 years after the birth of a democratic South Africa.

“You cannot talk about nation-building in the third person and remain authentic,” noted Schoonbee, explaining the details of T-Systems’ ‘nation-building’ programme within its 2000-employee South African division.

“We wanted to move past the fallacy that nation-building is something we as individuals cannot accomplish – that it can only be done only by heroic figures and icons. We wanted to illustrate that it affects us all, that it is not ‘something that needs to be done for someone else’.”

“T-Systems’ programmes have emphasised the nation-building efforts that can be done on an individual level, on a day-to-day basis. The vision is that T-Systems becomes a microcosm of the country we want to become”, he explained.

“Through its key accounts, the ICT company plays a critical role in areas such as ensuring well-functioning trade ports across South Africa’s coastline, providing high levels of electricity availability despite a tough operational climate, ensuring SA can transact with the world via sophisticated financial trading desks, and keeping production lines up and running for us to export goods.”

“All of these are, in essence, nation-building activities”, he said.

“Our cultural programme looks at these achievements and emphasises that staff are making a meaningful contribution to themselves, colleagues, customers, and then outside of the organisation: their families, communities, and the broader society at large”, noted Schoonbee.

However, change does not come easily. At T-Systems it began with breaking down some of the barriers between people. “We spend so much time at work, knowing each other, but at the same time, not knowing each other,” said Schoonbee.

“Our values, beliefs and identity are a result of our entire lives: where we have come from and everything we’ve experienced. In order to truly trust someone and work together as one, we need to truly understand that person.”

In October this year, when the new Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment Codes come into effect, the spotlight will once again be directed at issues of transformation. But Schoonbee believes that if we define transformation as simply ‘adhering to these codes’, we are not grasping the issue fully.

Transformation is about being instrumental in building a nation for those around us, transforming people’s lives through our actions, he continued.

With this in mind, the new culture of T-Systems actively seeks ways to do this. From its learnership programme that’s trained over 1500 people in recent years (many of which went on to formal internships and ultimately permanent positions within the organisation), to its Digital Learning Centre in the small rural town of Hazyview in Mpumalanga, nation-building remains at the heart of activities.

“This is a continual journey,” Schoonbee concludes, “We need to keep working on it, and find strength and energy from each other – but so far, the change has been incredible.”

T-Systems is a finalist in the the 13th Annual Oliver Empowerment Awards in the category Skills Development for organisations with a turnover of over R1 billion as well as Enterprise & Supplier Development category.

Instantly share live video between multiple broadcast facilities with the TVU Grid from GIT

By admin, 29 marca, 2014, No Comment

As the world becomes increasingly globalised, the broadcast environment has become more complex. The need to distribute live footage across widely geographically spread environments and across both national and international borders, requires cost effective switching and distribution technology to route footage to multiple locations across countries and even the world. The TVU Grid, now available from Graphic Image Technologies (GIT), is the ideal solution to this challenge, simplifying workflows and processes and offering an easy to use, scalable technology ideal for network affiliates and station groups.

This scalable IP-video distribution and switching solution enables users to seamlessly share live video between multiple locations using existing network infrastructure, delivering low-latency and efficient bandwidth utilisation.

“Live video distribution can be a costly and complex exercise, and is heavily reliant on the ability to deliver footage in a timely fashion. IP networks have in the past been considered too unstable for this process, as latency has always been an issue. However, with the TVU Grid technology IP networks can effectively be used for broadcast quality video distribution. With just the click of a mouse, users can share their live footage as it happens, using IP networks, to one or more locations anywhere in the world,” says Mark Chertkow, Managing Director at GIT.

The TVU Grid is based on the same technology as the award-winning TVUPack portable cellular uplink transmitter and the TVU Transceiver and uses existing TVUPack and network infrastructure for maximum cost effectiveness. With Point-to-Point and Point-to-Multiple-Point functionality, TVU Grid gives stations the ability to take in video from the field via TVUPack or local live studio feeds, and simultaneously distribute the feed to other transceivers on the grid. The TVU Grid decodes video streams and then encodes the signal for distribution to one or more TVU Transceivers with no latency.

A user-friendly interface simplifies this distribution within the grid, with no additional network configuration required. A web-based Graphic User Interface (GUI) and thumbnail previews enable users to distribute video to the location of their choice on the fly, and a web-based administrator console allows for adjustments to access rights and preferences to be easily updated. Frame Accurate Switching functionality provides additional value, allowing users to instantly switch from one live transmission to another with no disruption or delay, providing seamless transition between multiple scenes originating from any location.

“The TVU Grid works within the broadcast organisation’s existing network infrastructure, using a combination of proprietary software and custom TVU Transceiver hardware to optimise video transmission for the highest quality on available bandwidth. The solution also offers low-cost scalability, enabling broadcast organisations to rapidly expand video distribution capabilities to multiple geographical locations. It is a powerful tool for sharing live video on the fly while maintaining low operational costs,” Chertkow concludes.

The TVU Grid solution is available immediately from GIT.
