Watchful Software to Showcase Leading Cybersecurity Technologies at Microsoft’s Worldwide Partner Conference 2013

Watchful Software, a leading provider of data-centric information security solutions, will feature live demonstrations of its award-winning cybersecurity technologies at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC) 2013 this week, July 8-11. The company will showcase how RightsWATCH and TypeWATCH prevent sensitive data from being disclosed inadvertently and unauthorized users from accessing your systems. Watchful Software is also announcing a global collaboration with SECUDE and Foxit Corporation to offer enterprises running on SAP a powerful end-to-end approach to protect business critical information regardless of its form or location.

“Often, data is being pulled out of a SAP system, and is being transformed into emails, documents, spreadsheets, etc. This transformation process creates the opportunity for data breaches,” states Charles Foley, CEO of Watchful Software. “The alliance between Watchful, SECUDE and Foxit product offerings ensures that SAP-based information is protected against leaks, loss or theft, even if it is outside of the SAP database or published into different formats. This combination gives enterprises an unprecedented level of security of their business critical information both inside and outside the SAP landscape, as it moves around the world.”

Those who stop by stand 1825 at WPC 2013 will be able to see how Watchful’s comprehensive product suite is capable of 1) educating users and training them to handle confidential information, 2) leveraging ERM and DLP technology to classify, encrypt and protect sensitive data from being leaked, and 3) leveraging state-of-the-art eBiometrics technology, to constantly ensure that the people using your systems are who you think they are.

“Data breaches aren’t simply a question of good versus evil; oftentimes, these breaches are a result of an error by someone who really had no intention of disclosing sensitive information. Moreover, we should accept that just because there’s a security policy manual does not mean that its readers are going to act accordingly. Experience has proven that they won’t,” states Rui Melo Biscaia, Director of Product Management at Watchful Software. “RightsWATCH delivers a powerful tool for classifying data, controlling access to that data based on its user clearance and classification, and ensuring that the end result is what the organization expects and demands.”

The WPC 2013 is a four-day global gathering of top Microsoft partners held in Houston, Texas, USA (08 – 11 July 2013).

Maxthon Partners with AMD to Offer Web Browser Optimized for Next Generation APU Chips

Maxthon, a cloud-based browser, today released a new version of its Windows browser that uses a revolutionary new microprocessor from Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), significantly reducing power consumption while offering superior video performance. AMD’s new Accelerated Processing Unit (APU) leverages new technology to make transactions between the graphics processing unit (GPU) and the central processing unit (CPU) faster and more energy-efficient than ever before.

“New chip architecture like AMD’s APU product is a clear signpost to where we believe the Web technology is heading: more happening in the chip and the browser serving as more of an open standards operating system,” said Jeff Chen, founder and CEO of Maxthon. “We’re proud to collaborate with AMD on such an exciting step forward.”

The GPU handles the processing of rich media including graphics and video, while the CPU manages the heavy lifting of analytical and logic-based functions. Until now, communicating across these two units has depended on a serial data connection that processes millions of functions per second, often resulting in a sluggish and power-consuming Web experience.

The partnership allows Maxthon to optimize the Windows browser for lightning-quick interaction between the APU to speed up video and graphics rendering, particularly using HTML5 standards for which Maxthon is the global leader in support. Among other things, the Maxthon Cloud browser is using OpenCL for lightning quick HTML5 video post processing to offer richer, faster video.

“In the near future what we now know as TV will be mediated through a Web browser optimized for innovative technology like AMD’s APU processors,” said Karl Mattson, vice president of Maxthon International. “Among other things, that means the electronic ‘hearth’ of the TV in the family room will be freed to be available to any device connected to the Web running a browser like Maxthon.”

About Maxthon

Maxthon is an innovative software company that develops superior Web browsers that continue to set new standards for speed, security, simplicity and cloud features. It is available on the Windows, Android, iOS and Mac platforms.

Official feedback on OpenGL 4.4 thread

 SIGGRAPH – Anaheim, CA – The Khronos™ Group today announced the immediate release of the OpenGL® 4.4 specification,bringing the very latest graphics functionality to the most advanced and widely adopted cross-platform 2D and 3D graphics API (application programming interface). OpenGL 4.4 unlocks capabilities of today’s leading-edge graphics hardware while maintaining full backwards compatibility, enabling applications to incrementally use new features while portably accessing state-of-the-art graphics processing units (GPUs) across diverse operating systems and platforms. Also, OpenGL 4.4 defines new functionality to streamline the porting of applications and titles from other platforms and APIs. The full specification and reference materials are available for immediate download at http://www.opengl.org/registry.

In addition to the OpenGL 4.4 specification, the OpenGL ARB (Architecture Review Board) Working Group at Khronos has created the first set of formal OpenGL conformance tests since OpenGL 2.0. Khronos will offer certification of drivers from version 3.3, and full certification is mandatory for OpenGL 4.4 and onwards. This will help reduce differences between multiple vendors’ OpenGL drivers, resulting in enhanced portability for developers.

New functionality in the OpenGL 4.4 specification includes:

Buffer Placement Control (GL_ARB_buffer_storage)
Significantly enhances memory flexibility and efficiency through explicit control over the position of buffers in the graphics and system memory, together with cache behavior control – including the ability of the CPU to map a buffer for direct use by a GPU.

Efficient Asynchronous Queries
(GL_ARB_query_buffer_object)
Buffer objects can be the direct target of a query to avoid the CPU waiting for the result and stalling the graphics pipeline. This provides significantly boosted performance for applications that intend to subsequently use the results of queries on the GPU, such as dynamic quality reduction strategies based on performance metrics.

Shader Variable Layout (GL_ARB_enhanced_layouts)
Detailed control over placement of shader interface variables, including the ability to pack vectors efficiently with scalar types. Includes full control over variable layout inside uniform blocks and enables shaders to specify transform feedback variables and buffer layout.

Efficient Multiple Object Binding (GL_ARB_multi_bind)
New commands which enable an application to bind or unbind sets of objects with one API call instead of separate commands for each bind operation, amortizing the function call, name space lookup, and potential locking overhead. The core rendering loop of many graphics applications frequently bind different sets of textures, samplers, images, vertex buffers, and uniform buffers and so this can significantly reduce CPU overhead and improve performance.

Streamlined Porting of Direct3D applications

A number of core functions contribute to easier porting of applications and games written in Direct3D including GL_ARB_buffer_storage for buffer placement control, GL_ARB_vertex_type_10f_11f_11f_rev which creates a vertex data type that packs three components in a 32 bit value that provides a performance improvement for lower precision vertices and is a format used by Direct3D, and GL_ARB_texture_mirror_clamp_to_edge that provides a texture clamping mode also used by Direct3D.Extensions released alongside the OpenGL 4.4 specification include:

Bindless Texture Extension (GL_ARB_bindless_texture)
Shaders can now access an effectively unlimited number of texture and image resources directly by virtual addresses. This bindless texture approach avoids the application overhead due to explicitly binding a small window of accessible textures. Ray tracing and global illumination algorithms are faster and simpler with unfettered access to a virtual world’s entire texture set.

Sparse Texture Extension (GL_ARB_sparse_texture)
Enables handling of huge textures that are much larger than the GPUs physical memory by allowing an application to select which regions of the texture are resident for ‘mega-texture’ algorithms and very large data-set visualizations.

OpenGL BOF at SIGGRAPH, Anaheim, CA July 24th 2013
There is an OpenGL BOF “Birds of a Feather” Meeting on Wednesday July 24th at 7-8PM at the Hilton Anaheim, California Ballroom A & B, where attendees are invited to meet OpenGL implementers and developers and learn more about the new OpenGL 4.4 specification.

VUE Software to Provide Compensation Management System With Revenue Reconciliation for Insurance Technology and Distribution Organization

COCONUT CREEK, Fla., July 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — VUE Software® today announced that a rapidly growing health insurance technology and distribution partner recently selected the VUE Compensation Management™ solution for its compensation management infrastructure. A subsidiary of one of the top ten health insurance companies in the United States the organization is hiring and training thousands of agents and service workers. The firm plans to leverage the system’s comprehensive commission management capabilities, which include automated revenue reconciliation, to confirm commission accuracy across multiple carriers, maintain smooth operations and ensure correct, timely agent compensation.

Because of its highly specialized business model, rapid growth and ongoing interactions with carriers, exchanges, agents and consumers, the insurance service partner required a robust, configurable system able to scale to high business volumes. Revenue reconciliation was a deciding factor due to the need to verify payment accuracy across a multi-carrier, multi-hierarchy environment and incorporate pay structures such as flat fees, percentages and multiple commission tiers. In addition, higher transaction volumes were anticipated to accommodate the effects of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) and increases in Medicare use with a shifting retiree population.

The service partner chose VUE Compensation Management following a referral from an existing VUE Software client on the basis of revenue reconciliation. The solution is being integrated into the service partner’s technology and will provide comprehensive revenue reconciliation capabilities as partnerships are established in the organization’s aggressive growth phase.

“With our dedicated insurance focus and successful track record with reputable clients, VUE Software is an excellent choice for companies that need to rise above industry complexities and healthcare reform challenges,” said Abhinav Dave, executive vice president of VUE Software. “Unlike many solutions, automated reconciliation is built into VUE Compensation Management so our customers can keep pace with complex commission environments. Reconciling variations between expected revenue and payments received is just good business, but doing it manually can be extremely time-consuming. Higher transaction volumes increase the potential for error, particularly in multi-carrier situations. Only a sophisticated system like ours can make accuracy easy.”

VUE Compensation Management’s revenue reconciliation module enables service providers, managing general agents (MGAs), Health Insurance Exchanges (HIXs), carriers and other key partners to forecast, track, measure, compare and recognize earned revenue and avoid agent overpayments. Automation streamlines payment and reconciliation processes, saves time and money, helps eliminate errors and increases overall efficiencies. The system helps strengthen partner relationships by providing factual evidence for any payment errors, since all calculations are documented according to the contracted commission structure.

Microsoft still has ‘a way to go’ in determining its market for Windows 8, says Network Rail

Microsoft has “a bit of a way to go” in determining which market it is targeting for Windows 8, even though the operating system has now been on the market for over a year, Network Rail’s head of information systems strategy Simon Goodman has told Computing.

Goodman praised Microsoft’s early entries into hybrid-led technology via Windows 8, saying there was definitely “a need” for hybrid notebook-tablets, and that this was something Network Rail had “explored internally”.

“We’ve already looked at Surface-based devices,” confirmed Goodman.

“It gives you a combination of nice tablet looks and feel, a lightweight device, but it’s got a bit of grunt behind it, so if you need to do something a little bit more hefty from an applications perspective, you’ve got the tools and capabilities to do that,” he said.

But Goodman described the move from Windows 7 to 8, with its added Modern apps interface, as “a huge jump” for Microsoft, which could affect ease of adoption for some of Network Rail’s workers.

“If you’re a traditional desktop user, it’s quite difficult to get to the look and feel of how that works, and how to navigate around it,” said Goodman.

But Goodman maintained that, from a tablet perspective, “it’s not that hard to work out where you go, and everything else”.

However, Goodman is going to hold fire before rolling out any Windows 8 systems en masse at Network Rail.

“For me, it’s something we will look to embrace where it makes sense to do so, but I still think Microsoft has got a bit of a way to go yet to determine exactly what market it wants to play into,” said Goodman.

Look out for the full-length video interview with Network Rail’s Simon Goodman on Computing very soon.
