STEALTHbits, BOTE Awards Finalist, to Exhibit at TechEd North America 2014 in Houston, Texas

HAWTHORNE, NJ -- (Marketwired) -- 05/12/14 -- STEALTHbits Technologies Inc., a leading supplier of Data Access Governance solutions for Unstructured Data and Microsoft Infrastructure Management solutions, announced today that the company will exhibit its products at Microsoft TechEd North America 2014 in Houston starting Monday, May 12, 2014.

Additionally, STEALTHbits announced the company has been nominated as finalists for Best of TechEd North America Awards in two product categories: Messaging and Unified Communications, and SharePoint.

"We're very excited to be exhibiting at TechEd North America for the seventh consecutive year, as well as being nominated as finalists for Best of TechEd (BOTE) North America Awards in the Messaging and Unified Communications, and SharePoint categories," said Adam Laub, VP of Marketing for STEALTHbits. "We've worked very hard to include numerous customer-requested features and enhancements in both products and we are enthusiastic about the recognition we're receiving from Windows IT Pro."

The Best of TechEd (BOTE) North America Awards, produced by Windows IT Pro, recognize the innovative products and services showcased at Microsoft TechEd North America 2014.

Messaging and Unified Communications Category
This category is for email, Exchange add-ons, instant messaging (IM), fax, mobility, unified communications (UC), and Voice over IP (VOIP) solutions, as well as both server and client technologies.

  • StealthAUDIT® for Exchange - StealthAUDIT for Exchange enables organizations to identify risk, track usage, decreases bloat, and secure their MS Exchange Server infrastructure. As an agent-less application, installation times and infrastructure costs are negligible, allowing for rapid ROI -- the result is an enhanced security posture at tremendous cost savings.

    StealthAUDIT's breadth of coverage across the Exchange ecosystem greatly reduces the need for multiple, disparate point solutions, scripting, and manual methods of management. StealthAUDIT for Exchange provides broad, yet surgical insight into not only the Exchange application itself, but the Operating System it's installed upon, Active Directory which it cannot function without, and its ties with the Mobility and Unified Communications infrastructure that relies on Exchange.

    With a broad and deep reach into virtually every aspect of the Exchange ecosystem, StealthAUDIT provides organizations with a single toolset to address the myriad of Exchange management needs. The reduced number of toolsets reduces annual maintenance and support expenditures significantly, freeing up funds for other projects, initiatives, and toolsets that require monetary and time investment. Scheduling facilities allow administrators to automate the fulfillment of manual, time-consuming, repetitive tasks, freeing their time to address pressing issues and project work that helps the organization make progress in short-term and long-term goals.

SharePoint Category
This category covers solutions aimed at helping SharePoint admins, developers, and end users make the most of Microsoft SharePoint (e.g., migration, access management, security, auditing, backup and recovery, performance, social computing, content management, search).

  • StealthAUDIT® for Data Access Governance - SharePoint Edition - SharePoint does not provide a way to enforce policies and standards across entire data farms and the enterprise as a whole, making it impossible to govern access properly to the massive number of files and data contained within the SharePoint ecosystem. StealthAUDIT for Data Access Governance SharePoint Edition enables organizations to ensure only the right people have access to the right data, enforcing secure collaboration through deep understanding of effective access rights, data ownership, access activity, and more.

    Unlike point products designed to address very specific requirements in the management and security of SharePoint, StealthAUDIT's platform-based approach provides organizations with a toolbox of data collection, analysis, remediation, and reporting capabilities to complement the many moving pieces that make up the SharePoint ecosystem as a whole, including dependent and independent systems like the OS, SQL database, IIS and AD.

StealthAUDIT's platform approach provides the ability to not only govern access SharePoint, but to File Shares, Exchange Mailboxes, Active Directory Security Groups, and more. Insight is also provided into Privileged Account access, as well as change and access activities occurring within these environments, providing a single viewpoint for protecting data and mitigating the chance and damage of breach activities.

Conference attendees who would like to learn more about STEALTHbits' capabilities and approach are invited to visit Booth 1940 on the exhibit hall floor at the George R. Brown Conference Center in Houston, Texas.

The 3rd International Internet of @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that its Call for Papers is now open. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the biggest idea since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago.
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jeff Kaplan, Managing Director of THINKstrategies, will examine why IT must finally fulfill its role in support of its SBUs or face a new round of...
One of the biggest challenges when developing connected devices is identifying user value and delivering it through successful user experiences. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Mike Kuniavsky, Principal Scientist, Innovation Services at PARC, described an IoT-specific approach to user experience design that combines approaches from interaction design, industrial design and service design to create experiences that go beyond simple connected gadgets to create lasting, multi-device experiences grounded in people's real needs and desires.
Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user's habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
"Matrix is an ambitious open standard and implementation that's set up to break down the fragmentation problems that exist in IP messaging and VoIP communication," explained John Woolf, Technical Evangelist at Matrix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...

The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...
