DISA Awards By Light Team $198.9M Cloud-Based Internet Isolation Production OTA

MCLEAN, Va. -- By Light Professional IT Services LLC has been awarded a $198.9M, 5-year production Other Transaction Agreement (OTA) by the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) for the Cloud-Based Internet Isolation (CBII) Program. By Light as the prime contractor for this OTA, with teammate Menlo Security, Inc., are together delivering this next-generation Isolation Platform to protect Department of Defense (DoD) networks worldwide.

Beginning in March 2019, By Light and Menlo worked closely with the DISA CBII Program Management Office (PMO) to design and implement the CBII prototype capability which eliminates most web-based threats such as drive-by-downloads. This technology removes the browsing process from the desktop and moves it to the cloud, effectively creating an "air gap" between the internet and enterprise networks. The successful implementation of this effort will directly enhance military and civilian personnel's ability to defend the DoD Information Network (DODIN).

According to Bob Donahue, By Light CEO, "This win culminates more than 18 months of working closely with Menlo, DISA, and its Mission Partners to shape the commercial application of Menlo's Global Cloud Secure Web Gateway (SWG) to improve DoD's information security posture for those entities conducting business across the Internet. Our CBII solution improves the security posture of the network, will scale to meet DoD needs, is easy to deploy and manage, and optimizes and reduces bandwidth - thereby extending the life of the network."

"This isolation technology allows enterprises to separate their network from the public web while providing users seamless access to the internet with a native browser experience," says Joe Boyd, By Light VP and CBII Program Manager. "Within the cloud native architecture, all components scale horizontally. You couple this with global availability, anytime/anywhere access, always-on cloud with failover between regions, instant on-boarding of users, 24x7x365 operations support, and what you get is an enterprise-class cybersecurity capability virtually eliminating internet browsing threats traversing the Internet Access Points (IAPs) while also optimizing and reducing bandwidth utilization."

"We're truly humbled to partner with By Light on this groundbreaking program with DISA," said Poornima DeBolle, Chief Product Officer, Menlo Security. "Our partnership with the By Light team and the CBII Program Management Office (PMO) is a true testament to the value of the Menlo Security 'Isolation Core' architecture to deliver on their security and scalability needs to help defend the users of the DoD Information Network (DODIN)."

Voice Biometrics Shaping Up as Major Choice for Security and Healthcare

EDISON, N.J. -- Voice biometrics is shaping up as a major choice for security and healthcare in 2020. For example, Kaizen Secure Voiz (KSV), a respected leader in the voice biometrics industry, services a leading national security firm employing hundreds with more than 50% mobile guards in the field.

These personnel are spread throughout many organizations all over the nation. Mobile staff report to work in varying and decentralized locations. Another customer KSV services is an overseas hospital employing a workforce of hundreds of doctors and healthcare workers, more than 75% are mobile in the field. These employees are spread throughout their primary healthcare facilities and all over their country often visiting patients.

Keeping track of staff working in decentralized locations and hours is a laborious and time-consuming task. Web-based timecard submissions are not feasible for mobile workers who have no immediate access to the internet. To effectively manage and track these widely-dispersed personnel, the security firm and hospital rely on KSV's IVR-based voice biometric time and attendance system.

This workforce management tool has been an efficiency breakthrough for KSV customers, reducing labor costs, improving data accuracy and speeding up the payroll process. It is also a system highly valued by mobile staffers for its outstanding level of convenience that enables them to report their hours from anywhere and anytime.

To record and submit their working hours, customers mobile employees simply dial a toll-free number to access the IVR system. When prompted by voice cues, callers speak out their pass phrase (language and text independent) under 10 seconds. This IVR is preprogrammed to automatically understand their deployment location and time zone and update the same to the client's backend systems.

Call Centers are another industry using KSV's patented advanced authentication technologies. This is a low cost, more efficient and secure method for call centers to verify caller identity. A caller's voice password is set passively. When they call in again, they use natural speech for authentication, this provides significant time savings and allows representatives to focus on the higher-value tasks rather than the verification process, while also providing convenience for the caller.

"An enterprise can very easily adopt Kaizen Secure Voiz voice biometric product lineup when a customer reaches out to their contact center for any service or you can ask for explicit consent from customers and proactively enroll them," states Ashok Krish, President of Kaizen Secure Voiz. "It's user-friendly, safer, cost-effective and with user education can help one overcome any challenges faced."

KSV's patented voice biometrics & speech analytics software has also made contactless authentication possible without having to place hands anywhere near a scanner or take off face masks now required in public as a safety precaution. The technology allows enterprises to assess the nature of a transaction and determine which authentication levels are needed to successfully authorize a purchase helping to also reduce identity thefts. It uses the power of voice biometrics to automatically recognize a speaker by voice and to search for a specific speaker in an archive of speech records. KSV's advanced technology allows verification of the caller by his/her voice against thousands of voiceprints.

"Voice biometrics is emerging as a solution for AI-based behavior security, tracking and composite risk-based authentication," says Krish. KSV has developed advanced technologies to automatically extract the maximum amount of valuable information from spoken speech to identify, verify a user and provide analytics such as gender and age estimation as part of its speech data mining portfolio.

"Kaizen Secure Voice is committed to improving contactless biometrics security for use both from a technological advantage point and as a safety precaution during these uncertain times and in the future," adds Krish.

Jeff Brown, VP of Sales and Marketing for SecuGen stated, "The U20-ASFX optical fingerprint sensor module is an evolutionary step from the U20-ASF. The U20-ASFX expands the template capacity of the previous version by a factor of 10. The Integration of a Single Board Computer with our FAP 20 certified fingerprint sensor module and with an open Linux development environment, makes this product enormously powerful and possibly unique in the industry. Combining all of this with a low price and compact size has been a major win for our partners."

"The SecuGen engineering team has delivered a significant improvement to our flagship OEM sensor while being able to keep the cost low," commented VP of Engineering Dan Riley. "Our team has responded to our partners' requirements and are very excited about the U20-ASFX."

Won Lee, CEO of SecuGen, added, "Our focus has not changed from when we started the company over 20 years ago. We work hard to deliver to our OEM partners the high-quality products and tools needed to compete successfully in diverse fields that benefit from biometric technologies. The U20-ASFX is a perfect example of this focus. We are very proud of the outcome."

SecuGen will be demonstrating the U20-ASFX in booth #542 at Connect:ID in Washington DC from Wednesday, March 11 through Thursday, March 12, 2020.
