Cisco, CyberLock, Dove Net, ImageWare, and Wave Systems Discuss Security Solutions

New ISC East Dates Due to Hurricane Sandy, PSA Security Network Interview With President/CEO Bill Bozeman

RYE BROOK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 11/15/12 -- ImageWare Systems (OTCQB: IWSY), Wave Systems (NASDAQ: WAVX)

Cisco
Mrs. Ulrica de-Fort Menares, Director of Product Management for Cisco Medianet, told us, "An intelligent network must become more application-savvy. It must have the ability to determine the importance of a session based on its business value, and treat the session accordingly, end to end. One of the key medianet characteristics is its ability to become media-aware. Imagine this: The network can discover the type of endpoint and automatically configure the switch port for that type of device. This ability to plug and play any endpoint in the network is an example of tight integration between an intelligent network and an endpoint."

CyberLock

There are many creative ways clients utilize the innovative CyberLock access control system. In the following application, a leading mine operator in Africa has implemented the CyberLock system to manage access to a variety of items ranging from high value tools to dangerous explosives. One of the contributing factors that made the client choose CyberLock is its ability to remotely manage access, without the need for power or wiring. On a daily basis the physical layout of the mine is constantly evolving as efforts to uncover the desired resources are implemented. This ever-changing topography and underground environment made a traditional, wired access control solution impossible. CyberLock, on the other hand, was able to seamlessly replace all of the mechanical locks throughout the mine.

The mining supervisory staff has been allocated CyberKeys with associated schedules and permissions dictated by their role in the organization. Web Authorizer Communicators were chosen because they require entry of a PIN code before the key can be reauthorized, which further increased security. In addition, since the Authorizer Hub saves permissions and audit trail information locally, operations can continue even during the fairly common occurrence of a network outage. Through the Dual Key Custody feature built into the CyberLock system, the mine can ensure that the on-site explosives can only be accessed under dual supervision. This feature forces both a supervisory and a transport team lead to present an authorized key before explosives can be retrieved. This ability to provide access control in such a changing and challenging environment has made CyberLock an invaluable part of this mining operation.

ImageWare Systems

Mr. Jim Miller, chairman and CEO of ImageWare, said, "At the end of last year, we set a goal to establish a leadership position in biometric-based identity management for the cloud. The release of our BE 2.0 earlier this year, followed by the CloudID product suite, has clearly paved the way toward achieving this goal. Our proven experience in the government sector is translating perfectly into the commercial market, and we are gaining traction with customer adoption as demonstrated by our Fujitsu license agreement."

"Working with a global partner and leading IT innovator like Fujitsu and their NuVola Private Cloud allows ImageWare to quickly enter the private cloud arena," continued Miller. "The worldwide deployment of this platform represents a significant growth opportunity for ImageWare and also demonstrates our multi-biometric security expertise."

During the third quarter, the company also advanced the development of its biometric-secured mobile transaction technology, building upon the wireless push technology and related patents it acquired from VOCEL earlier in the year. Integrating wireless push technology with ImageWare's biometric solutions provides the missing security link facing a growing number of enterprises and government agencies using mobile platforms to transact business or interact with their users. The solution is applicable for healthcare, law enforcement, banking and retail, or any organization requiring highly-reliable and flexible identity verification of their mobile users. The company plans to release the first demonstration models of this mobile technology to key potential corporate users in early December.

In addition to product development, ImageWare has been preparing for a major international deployment as the exclusive provider of biometric identity management for a prime contractor installing cargo scanning security at the Republic of Ecuador's major seaports. The initial deployment is currently scheduled to begin in the early part of 2013 at the Port of Guayaquil, the country's main seaport that handles a majority of its imports and exports. ImageWare expects to receive a fee for every port worker receiving credentials, as well as an annual management and maintenance fee, based on a percentage of the initial credentialing cost per worker. Depending upon the number of enrollees, the company expects the contract value to exceed $3.0 million over its seven year term.

"The high-end biometric secure credentialing solution we are providing for Ecuador is the same technology being deployed for the Los Angeles World Airports, which we announced earlier this year," noted Miller. "In fact, we can easily replicate this platform for virtually any port system that needs transportation worker identification cards in order to comply with the SAFE Port Act. Not only are our solutions easily deployable, for ImageWare they generally represent gross margins above 70% as well as a recurring revenue stream. Our unique patented technology has the potential to provide us strong, steady revenue growth, along with excellent forward-looking visibility."

Miller added: "Historically, our revenues have been lumpy and difficult to predict as a result of our dependence upon larger government projects. Although we will continue to pursue government contracts, we believe the proactive steps we have taken to operate in the commercial and consumer markets will begin to provide us with monthly recurring revenue throughout 2013, driven primarily from our Cloud, SaaS and mobile offerings."

WAVE SYSTEMS

Wave CEO Steven Sprague recently said, "We view Windows 8, which utilizes industry standard hardware to deliver a range of convenient and secure new features, as a validation of the benefits of Trusted Computing and Wave's solutions. Wave is uniquely positioned to support Windows 8 deployments via server-based or cloud management solutions, as well as to deliver a range of Windows 8 capabilities to enterprise customers running Windows 7 and earlier versions. Though Trusted Computing is based on industry-standard hardware used to protect your identity, the powerful user benefits are ease of use, ease of connection, and ease of access to the critical data that you need to do your job; it just works. Further, by building these capabilities on top of Trusted Computing hardware now being deployed across PCs, tablets and mobile devices via Windows 8, governments, enterprises, and even individuals, are able to benefit and manage all of their devices using one solution.

"As the mobile security space continues to expand -- especially with the rising use of consumer smartphones in the enterprise, in mobile commerce and for sensitive applications -- Wave has taken a leadership role in promoting the adoption of hardware-based industry standards for greater security. Last quarter, Wave announced its inclusion in the influential ARM TrustZone Ready Program, whose partners have pledged to help chipset vendors design and integrate Trusted Computing hardware features in the chipsets they are building today.

"We are making great progress with scrambls to address security issues posed by the rising use of Cloud storage services in the enterprise as well as the evolution of social media into a tool increasingly used by businesses for the dissemination of critical information. We see strong interest within the corporate environment for solutions that enable the safe sharing of files and communications over the Internet and social media."
