Arrive Accelerates Deployment of Seamless Parking Solutions Across North America

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 25 ottobre 2019

Arrive is accelerating the deployment of its seamless parking solutions across North America, moving from city-based tests to wide-scale implementation of its frictionless technologies. By the end of 2020, Arrive aims to have installed Bluetooth and other technologies in tens of thousands of garages and lots across the U.S. and Canada. Drivers who purchase parking through the company’s ParkWhiz and BestParking apps, or one of Arrive’s partners like Ticketmaster, Amazon Alexa, or Honda will be able to seamlessly enter and exit garages and lots without making a reservation or pulling a ticket at the gate. “The way people get from place to place is changing as fast as new technology is developed. It can be difficult for businesses to keep up and a financial burden for parking operators and asset owners to continue investing in expensive technology,” said Yona Shtern, CEO of Arrive. “We have developed a range of low-cost and easy-to-install solutions, and are committed to working with operators and PARCS companies to enhance their existing infrastructure, making it possible for them to enable new technology faster and creating a better, more connected experience for drivers.” To help the company accelerate its expansion, Arrive has entered into a strategic partnership with Inugo, a New Zealand-based company, to provide Arrive with Bluetooth connectivity kits that the company has integrated into existing PARCS systems.
“We’ve spent many years building a platform that allows parking operators to have a robust, cost-effective solution for enabling digital access to their gates for a range of use cases. By partnering with Arrive, we will be able to expand our footprint in North America and collaborate with them to enable seamless access for millions of drivers across the country,” said Ben Martel, CEO of Inugo.Inugo is the latest hardware solution provider to join Arrive in its pursuit of seamless parking solutions, joining previously announced hardware partners Flash Parking, Parkonect, TIBA, Skidata and DataPark.In addition to more hardware partnerships, Arrive is also announcing nationwide operator partnerships with InterPark and Propark Mobility to help advance frictionless parking and other mobility services.“Arrive’s unique approach to the marketplace, focusing on connecting parking operators to the millions of customers who will use new technologies in connected cars and fleets, helps Propark enhance our business today, and ensures we are adaptable to the changing landscape of mobility,” said John Schmid, CEO of Propark Mobility. InterPark COO James Mueller said, “Arrive’s flexible and collaborative partnership nicely supports our own investments in improving the customer experience without requiring additional costs.” Arrive and Inugo will demo the new Bluetooth connectivity kit in the Arrive booth at the 2019 National Parking Association Annual Convention and Expo.

CynergisTek Sees Increased Demand for Medical Device Security Services in First Year of Deployment

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 11 agosto 2019

CynergisTek, Inc., (NYSE AMERICAN: CTEK), a leader in healthcare cybersecurity, privacy, and compliance, today announced that it has experienced significant market demand with Medical Device Security Service customer wins at leading health systems since launching the service in late 2018. Sixty percent of the contracts were existing Compliance Assist Partner Program (CAPP) clients that expanded their relationship with CynergisTek to add ongoing Medical Device Security Service engagements. In a recent survey, nearly one-third of healthcare executives reported that medical device security is one of the top five cyber risks facing healthcare today, however the majority also reported not having an effective (or any) strategy in place to assess the risks posed by medical devices. This is often due to the organization’s lack of internal resources, leaving the cyber threat to hospital operations and patient safety at an all-time high. It is for this reason that multiple leading health systems, including Banner Health, one of the largest nonprofit healthcare systems in the U.S., and Gwinnett Medical Center, one of the largest healthcare networks in Atlanta and nationally recognized for clinical excellence, have turned to CynergisTek’s Medical Device Security Service to help address security vulnerabilities by developing and managing a security strategy around its devices.
CynergisTek’s Medical Device Managed Services address the security of the entire medical device lifecycle, including policy development, pre-acquisition procedures, implementation and security control setup, identifying and reporting vulnerabilities and coordinating remediation in conjunction with the device maintenance schedule. CynergisTek’s team of security experts act as advisors, providing a comprehensive view of the system and a systematic approach to address issues or concerns during any part of the lifecycle process, whether that be alerts of a critical recall or performing risk assessments of the device and manufacturer during vendor selection.CynergisTek offers a comprehensive set of medical device services to ensure security best practices for the planning, implementation, and ongoing maintenance of an organization’s biomedical device lifecycle management program. From device acquisition to retirement, CynergisTek’s managed service program provides services to support program implementation and optimization activities as well as ongoing support to ensure a continued focus on addressing new biomedical device vulnerabilities and risks as they are discovered.

Flying 2.0?

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 14 aprile 2010

Following up on European Commission  communication on IoT Action Plan for Europe, the EU’s ‘cyber security’ Agency ENISA – The European Network and Information Security Agency, has analysed the risks associated with a future air travel scenario, enabled with “Internet of things”, IoT / RFID technology. The report identifies major security risks, as well as privacy, social and legal implications and also makes concrete policy and research and legal, recommendations. IoT is a vision where all manufactured things are connected to each other via wireless or wired communication networks. The movement of travellers, airport staff, and luggage creates an increasing, continuous interaction between smart devices. It also implies sharing of significant amounts of sensitive information. Every day ca 28.000 flights occur in Europe, (i.e. ca 10 Mn/year), so the importance of air travel is easily understandable. The Executive Director of ENISA, Dr. Udo Helmbrecht comments on the report; “To fully realise the benefits of the Internet of Things, the challenges and risks that IoT implies must be identified and addressed in a proactive way. These risks do not always have to do with the technology per se but with the way we use it.” Three policy recommendations: 1. Rethink existing business structures and introduce new business models.  Air transportation actors (e.g. airlines, airports, logistics, aviation security agencies, etc) should proactively stay alert for new business models. 2. User-friendliness and inclusiveness of devices, processes and procedures – we need to be inclusive. 3. Develop and adopt policies for data management and protection Five research recommendations: 1. Data protection and privacy, 2. Usability, 3. Multi-modal person authentication, e.g. biometric procedures, 4. Proposing standards of light cryptography protocols, and, 5. Managing trust as a central consideration: an enterprise should understand its own trust framework. Three legal recommendations: 1. Support for users, e.g. for data subjects to better exercise their rights. 2. Placing a high value on information and data. 3. Harmonisation of data collection by airport shops and efforts to raise awareness, among travellers of the collection and processing of data. Three recommendations are given specifically to the European Commission: 1. Enforcement and application guidelines for the European regulatory framework.  2. Alignment of research with both industrial and societal needs, e.g. ethical limits research.  3. Need for security and privacy impact assessment and trials of new technologies before deployment.
