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).

Apple Patent Register Battery Surveillance Technology

Smartphones today are able to facilitate human needs must have a very high performance. So that mobile devices require a lot of power. So many smartphone manufacturers are promoting their products with a battery that can last a long time one of them is the iPhone.
IPhone devices manufactured by Apple is continuing to develop its technological capabilities. Recently they have patented the a new technology that can extend the device battery iPhone.
Reported by Apple Insider, the technology works by stalking or studying user behavior patterns smartphone during a certain period. Power consumption is adjusted based on the user’s habits in a way like turning off the hardware components, reducing the frequency, up to date email, and services that consume the data, close the software, thereby maximizing battery life.

Software maker E2open plans more revenue, less BlackBerry

Supply chain management software maker E2open Inc (EOPN.O) expects its revenue to hit $100 million for the first time next fiscal year, after replacing its dependence on BlackBerry Ltd (BB.TO) and PC makers with a host of new customers.

Chief Executive Mark Woodward said he expected E2open, which went public a year ago, to boost its sales in the 12 months to February 2015 after adding up to 20 new enterprise customers in the current fiscal year.

“We do $80 million (in revenue) this year and we grow 30 percent next year. That should get us there,” Woodward said in an interview, referring to the $100-million revenue target.

E2open, which makes cloud-based software designed to assist companies in managing their supply chains, has more than doubled its annual revenue in the five years since Woodward took charge. Revenue in the fiscal year to February 28, 2013, was $75 million.

The company’s shares have risen about 35 percent since they began trading on the Nasdaq on July 26 last year.

Three of the six analysts covering E2open have a “strong buy” rating on the stock. The other three rate it “buy”, according to Thomson Reuters data. The company has a market capitalization of $460 million.

With a customer base that includes Coca-Cola Co (KO.N), Unilever Plc (ULVR.L), IBM (IBM.N) and Cisco Systems Inc (CSCO.O), E2open has been diversifying to cut its dependence on any one large customer.

Last year, that customer was Canadian smartphone maker BlackBerry (BBRY.O).

Woodward said he expected BlackBerry’s contribution to E2open’s revenue to fall to less than 3 percent in the current fiscal year from nearly 15 percent last year.

BlackBerry, which pioneered on-the-go email with its handsets and messaging systems, has slipped into tough times as it struggles to keep pace with nimbler rivals.

Woodward said BlackBerry’s quarterly shipments of about 7 million units were between a quarter and a third of the volume contracted when it became a customer of E2open four years ago.

“Their usage of our systems, just because they are selling less handsets, has come down dramatically,” said Woodward.

E2open has, on average, signed up 17 enterprise customers in each of the last two years. In total, it has 76 enterprise customers – those which buy E2open’s software as well as pay for access to its network of suppliers and trading partners.

Computer maker Dell Inc (DELL) brought in 22.5 percent of E2open’s revenue in fiscal 2011. Now, it accounts for less than 5 percent – even though its contribution in dollar terms has risen, Woodward said.

“The original deal that we signed with Dell was for $3.2 million for three years,” he said. “The last bill we signed with Dell was for $3.2 million per year.”

British mobile telephone company Vodafone Group Plc (VOD.L) (VOD.O) is the largest customer for Foster City, California-based E2open, having contributed 12.1 percent of the company’s revenue last fiscal year.

Another customer, Seagate Technology LLC (STX.O), held a 9 percent stake in E2open as of December last year.

Adobe’s Kuler beta site resurrects photo-color picker

Adobe Systems has launched a beta version to try out changes to its color-picker Kuler service, including the restoration of an earlier feature to extract dominant colors from photos.

Kuler lets people assemble quintets of colors into a color scheme that’s saved into their own archive; people can browse others’ schemes as well. The colors can be imported into Adobe’s Illustrator software, too.

The photo tool is available by loading the new Kuler beta site. Adobe said Monday it’s seeking feedback on the changes, which it may or may not keep. Adobe also provided an option to use a less obtrusive color wheel and to shrink borders around colors so designers can better judge how they look together.

Kuler is useful, though hardly a heavyweight app like Photoshop or After Effects. But it’s interesting to watch since it’s got new-era online, collaborative, and social aspects that seem to be a priority for Adobe as it tries to convince skeptics that its $50-per-month Creative Cloud subscription is more than just a new way to pay for the old Creative Suitesoftware.

When Adobe cut over to its Creative Cloud subscription program, it introduced an iOS app that also can pick a color scheme from a photo.

Adobe once had a Kuler app for Android, but scrapped it and is channeling its resources toward the Kuler Web interface at present.

In response to a request for a Kuler Android app, an Adobe staff member had this to say:

While the iOS app and the discontinued Android app do have similar capabilities, they are actually quite a bit different. We have found that people use tablets and mobile phones very differently. So, we created the iPhone app with a different focus in mind — which translated to different features, UI, and interactions.

We have also found the tasks most people wanted to accomplish with Kuler, on a tablet device, are very similar to the tasks people undertake with the Kuler website. So, we’ve invested a lot of time and effort into updating the site to embrace the latest Web standards (also announced at MAX). And, it should work really well on Android and iOS tablets. We look forward to getting these updates in the hands of users to hear what they think.

We understand there are many Android phone users who may find an app like the Kuler iPhone app useful, and we’ll monitor demand for that over time.

In my tests on a Nexus 7 tablet, I was able to use the normal Kuler site, but the photo upload and color-wheel shrinking features had some problems. I could use photos I took on the spot and from the photo gallery, but imports from Google+ galleries, Dropbox, and Google Drive failed. Worse, the color wheel for picking colors by hand didn’t work with my touch screen.
