The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2021-04-28T22:51:08Z CircleSource closes talent gap between SMEs and big business 2021-04-28T22:51:08Z circlesource-closes-talent-gap-between-smes-and-big-business-1 Small and medium enterprises can now attract the best Australian specialists for outsourced expertise, thanks to a new online marketplace that connects businesses (buyers) to expert service providers (suppliers) within minutes.The CircleSource digital platform focuses on Australian specialists nationwide, to support Australian experts and Australian businesses; allowing both parties to communicate directly online and in-person offline.The platform’s interactive map even lets you search by location, streamlining your search to your local area – particularly useful for organisations looking to build their community.CircleSource is co-founded by Andrew Jarvis and Andrew Jackson, who built their decades-long careers in corporate HR, across numerous industry sectors; experiencing first-hand the need to engage external specialists at different stages throughout their journeys.Today, small businesses employing 0-19 staff make up 97.4% of all Australian businesses, and a whopping 62.8% of Aussie businesses are non-employing (sole traders). And as the number of independent contractors in the gig economy continues to grow rapidly, Jarvis says now is the time for SMEs to harness the full benefits of sourcing external specialists via a robust system. “We know that external specialists inject much-needed fresh thinking and expert skills into organisations. It can save costs and increase productivity.“But for too long, SMEs have been disadvantaged by the lack of resources and governance protocols to source the best people, relying heavily on personal networks and referrals or online search,” he said.CircleSource removes this disadvantage, giving SMEs easy access to competing on a level playing field as big business; by providing a sophisticated enterprise business management tool that cuts inefficiencies.“Everything from the job brief, listing and bidding to communication, proposal review and data reporting, can be managed on the one dashboard.”“Depending on how the individual business operates, there can be between 40%-70% cost savings in time and effort,” said Jarvis, who highlighted the fact that there is absolutely no cost to the buyer to use the platform. Suppliers only pay a one-off fee (which is capped) if they win a job. Buyers and suppliers want transparencyResearch, both academic and through CircleSource’s own market surveys, reveals that independent specialists want platforms that are truly transparent – no hidden costs such as fees for membership and lead generation; no barriers to buyer/supplier communication; and openness around how jobs get awarded.As Dr. Amy Wrzesniewski, Professor at Yale School of Management explains in an interview published in Deloitte Insights, it matters a lot that people feel they understand how it all works, especially in the business side of things – where the money goes, how jobs get assigned – and that they feel fairly treated. “At least right now, on a lot of these platforms, there is a sense of a lack of transparency or at worst, a sense of potentially being manipulated by the platform where gig workers feel the design is pushing them, but it’s for the benefit of the organisation, not the individual,” she said.Jarvis: “Exactly why we built CircleSource on our core values of transparency and trust. To move beyond a financial transaction marketplace, into an ecosystem where real connections, relationships and collaborations grow. To deliver great outcomes for all parties in terms of quality, time and cost.”For buyersSign up for free and start searching for all suppliers on the platform. There are no barriers to reading their full profiles.You can follow them or mark them as favourites until you are ready to engage them.Create your job, post to the open market or directly invite selected suppliers and communicate directly via live chat.You can also invite experts from outside of the platform to bid at the same time.Receive notifications each time there is an action on the job.It is 100% free for buyers. Suppliers will only pay a fee of 7.5% of the agreed value of the job, capped at a maximum of $1250 if their proposal is accepted. No job, no fee – if you do not win a job, you pay nothing.Once a job is completed, you can choose to recommend a supplier and leave a written endorsement. It is how suppliers trend in CircleSource and appear higher in searches.You can manage all jobs in one dashboard and build your network of inner-circle suppliers for future engagement.For suppliersSign up for free and start searching for all jobs on the platform. There is no lock-in contract to participate.Showcase your expertise for free, to attract leads from companies outside of your usual business networks.Communicate directly with buyers to ask questions, discuss details and share information. There are no barriers to communication.No job, no fee. There is no limit on how many jobs you can pitch for.Only pay a fee of 7.5% of the agreed value of the job, capped at a maximum of $1250, if your proposal is accepted. So, for example, if you win a $50,000 job, the capped CircleSource fee is $1250, which is in fact only 2.5% of the engagement value.The more jobs you win through CircleSource, the higher you trend in searches of buyers looking for your expertise.Once a job is completed, you can choose to leave a written endorsement on what it was like to work with the buyer.About CircleSourceAn Australian-owned and founded business to help Aussie enterprises find and connect with a network of the best Aussie talent for service and project-based work.

After many months attending and teaching remote and hybrid classrooms during 2020, Australian students and teachers learned technology was an essential part of education, regardless of the location of students and teachers. As many classrooms moved to a hybrid model, the devices deployed to students and teachers in 2020 will continue to be put to use. That is why Jamf is continuing to innovate to the Jamf Parent and Jamf Teacher apps.- Jamf Teacher App brings class management to Macs for Jamf School - The Jamf Teacher app has historically focused on the management of iOS and iPadOS devices. With the new update, Jamf is extending key capabilities of Jamf Teacher to Macs, ensuring that teachers can enhance remote classes and keep students focused on learning, regardless of device type. Now there is an easy way to bring classroom management to student Macs, both M1 and Intel-based, and IT admins have the ability to streamline their school’s entire Apple ecosystem. Jamf will offer schools, teachers and IT admins these key capabilities to enhance remote, hybrid and in-person learning as students continue to use their school-issued Apple devices in the classroom. This new capability for Jamf Teacher for Jamf School to Macs will be available for download in the App Store soon.- Jamf Parent Android App for Jamf Pro and Jamf School - In an effort to improve educational equity, Jamf now empowers even more parents to become active partners in their students learning by offering an Android version of the Jamf Parent app for both Jamf School and Jamf Pro.

As classrooms open up again, these devices will remain in use.” said Sam Johnson, Chief Customer Officer, Jamf. “It's important for parents to have the ability to manage their child’s school issued device to help focus learning by restricting apps, websites, social media, and device functionality. Extending the capability of the Jamf Parent App for all parents, increases parental engagement, online safety and social and emotional welling of students as schools work with parents toward shared goals.”About JamfJamf, the standard in Apple Enterprise Management, extends the legendary Apple experience people love to businesses, schools, and government organisations through its software and the world’s largest online community of IT admins focused exclusively on Apple, Jamf Nation.

Genetec enhances its Advantage comprehensive maintenance program with new privacy and performance monitoring features 2021-04-07T22:20:51Z genetec-enhances-its-advantage-comprehensive-maintenance-program-with-new-privacy-and-performance-monitoring-features Sydney, AUSTRALIA/MONTRÉAL, April 8, 2021—Genetec Inc. (“Genetec”), a leading technology provider of unified security, public safety, operations, and business intelligence solutions today announced the addition of privacy and performance monitoring features to its premium maintenance program, Genetec Advantage™. In addition to software upgrades, premium support, and system monitoring, Genetec Advantage now includes licenses of KiwiVision™ Privacy Protector™ and KiwiVision™ Camera Integrity Monitor for all new and existing Genetec Advantage subscribers*. To meet the public’s growing expectations of privacy, and to comply with global regulations, the KiwiVision™ Privacy Protector™ automatically obscures individuals’ faces caught within a camera’s field of view, so security operators only see what they need to see. Being able to access unobscured footage requires an additional layer of access permissions that is only used when an event warrants an investigation. An audit trail is then maintained that shows who accessed the additional information, and why. With the addition of KiwiVision™ Camera Integrity Monitor, customers can make sure that their cameras are operational and efficient at all times. The Camera Integrity Monitor notifies operators when a camera may have been tampered with, if there is a decrease in quality, or if there are abrupt changes in the position of the camera due to environmental or human causes. This is especially useful in large systems involving hundreds or thousands of cameras where it is nearly impossible to manually check each camera’s image and field of view. “As physical security systems become increasingly complex, it is critical to know that these systems are up to date, performing as they should, and integrating the latest privacy and performance features,” said Julie Gauthier, Director of Global Operations and Technical Support at Genetec. “Genetec Advantage™ is the best way to get the most out of your Genetec solution, and ensure your system is at peak performance. By providing licenses* of KiwiVision™ Privacy Protector™ and Camera Integrity Monitor we’re adding tools to help our customers maintain the integrity of their system, and protect the privacy of individuals within view of surveillance cameras, without sacrificing security.” For more information about the Genetec Advantage program, please visit https://www.genetec.com/support/maintenance/genetec-advantage *The number of included licenses of KiwiVision™ Privacy Protector™ and Camera Integrity Monitor is based on the size of the deployment.

New “CISO View” Survey on Zero Trust Highlights Credential Theft Trends for New Types of Identities 2021-03-25T23:33:27Z new-ciso-view-survey-on-zero-trust-highlights-credential-theft-trends-for-new-types-of-identities Sydney – 26 March 2021 – A new survey released by CyberArk (NASDAQ: CYBR), the global leader in Identity Security, found that 97 percent of senior security executives say attackers are increasingly trying to steal one or more types of credentials. As organisations move assets to the cloud, increase third-party access to corporate resources, and enable sustained remote work models, attackers are targeting non-traditional user populations that may not be adequately protected. Sponsored by CyberArk, “The CISO View 2021 Survey: Zero Trust and Privileged Access,” demonstrates consensus around the value of Zero Trust and a growing sense of urgency for securing privileged access. The survey revealed a marked shift in spear-phishing and impersonation attack patterns: The most widely reported group facing increased attacks is end-users – including business users with access to sensitive data. A majority of respondents (56 percent) report such users as being increasingly targeted by attackers. Attacks are also on the rise against senior leadership (48 percent), third-party vendors and contractors (39 percent), and DevOps and cloud engineers (33 percent). Widespread increases in credential theft attempts were reported for personal data (70 percent) and financial systems and data (66 percent). This is clear evidence of attackers’ interest in gaining “high-value” access – access to highly sensitive systems that are often held by end-users rather than administrators for example. In response to these shifting attack patterns, security leaders are embracing Zero Trust models: Eighty-eight percent of respondents said adopting more of a Zero Trust approach is “very important” or “important.” To implement a Zero Trust model, the top priority was controls focusing on Identity and Access Management (IAM), chosen by 45 percent of respondents. Several types of IAM controls were favored to protect access to sensitive systems. Just-in-time access controls were highly valued, with 87 percent of respondents saying reducing standing privileges is an “important” or “very important” aspect of Zero Trust. Because attackers recognise the value of non-IT identities and are exploiting weaknesses in protecting these identities because of operational challenges, there is a need for security solutions that work despite internal constraints: Endpoint security remains an operational challenge for 94 percent of respondents - 46 percent said that installing and maintaining agents made endpoint security challenging. Eighty-six percent said user experience optimisation is “important” or “very important,” highlighting a need for security tools and policies that will not be bypassed or ignored due to security fatigue. “Reverberations from the SolarWinds attack continue to underscore the need to protect privileged credentials and break the attack chain to organisations’ most valuable assets,” said Mike O’Malley, senior vice president, Global Marketing, CyberArk. “As new identities multiply across the enterprise, this survey emphasises the importance of a Zero Trust-based approach to Identity Security. For security leaders seeking to mitigate the risks of spear-phishing, impersonation attacks and other forms of compromise, we believe the peer experiences captured in the CISO View reports will serve as an invaluable tool, no matter where their organisation is on the Zero Trust maturity curve.” The survey is a companion to “The CISO View: Protecting Privileged Access in a Zero Trust Model.” The fifth in The CISO View series, it is based on in-depth interviews with a panel of 12 top security executives from Global 1000 companies. The panel shared their firsthand experiences around protecting privileged access while transitioning to Zero Trust, including an analysis of risks and recommended controls.

About the Survey The CISO View Survey is based on an online survey with 100 security executives from large enterprises conducted in Q4 2020. The CISO View series was developed in conjunction with independent research firm Robinson Insight. About CyberArk CyberArk (NASDAQ: CYBR) is the global leader in Identity Security.

Impact Acquires Trackonomics, Boosts Publisher Commerce Content Capabilities 2021-03-23T22:02:23Z impact-acquires-trackonomics-boosts-publisher-commerce-content-capabilities-1 Sydney, AUSTRALIA Mar 24, 2021—Impact, the global leader in partnership automation today announced that it has completed the acquisition of Trackonomics Ltd, the leading supply-side platform (SSP) designed for publishers’ commerce-driven content. This acquisition enhances Impact’s Partnership Cloud publisher technology capabilities. For some of the largest and most recognizable names in digital commerce transformation, Trackonomics provides full-funnel revenue attribution at the page and the link level - telling publishers exactly how every page is generating income or losing it. This technology enables publishers to make better and quicker decisions: what to write about and who to partner with across all segments and networks in the industry. It’s also clearly resonating among publishers as Trackonomics has doubled its revenue and client roster in the past 12 months. “The consumer backlash against disruptive and let’s face it, annoying ads, has led to Google’s upcoming changes to tracking cookies and Apple’s privacy updates, which most would agree is a move in the right direction...unless you ask marketers,” said David. A. Yovanno, CEO at Impact. “But content publishers have innovated new commerce-driven content formats that introduce a degree of authenticity that has been missing in traditional advertising. Brands now have opportunities to leverage that consumer trust through partnerships with these content publishers.” The most successful publishers maintain their audience’s trust by adhering to their own integrity standards and ensuring the brand or product they endorse aligns with their publication and most importantly, audience. “We are thrilled to be partnering with Impact - a company that has technology and innovation in its very foundation, and a strong global presence that can bring Trackonomics to new publishers across the globe,” said Hanan Maayan, CEO at Trackonomics. “Together, we will continue to build game changing products for influencers and commerce-centric publishers, work to reduce deal friction and increase volume and velocity across our industry.” Impact has led the partnerships category creation, adding 577 new clients in FY2020 and, in the past few years, has enhanced its platform offerings through the acquisitions of Mediarails, a partnerships-based CRM platform, and, more recently, Activate, an influencer marketing platform. Some of Impact’s clients across APAC include Best & Less, Booktopia, Canva, Decathlon, Dollar Shave Club, Easyship, Kayo Sports, Binge, Lenovo, Razer and Westpac.

(“Genetec”), a leading technology provider of unified security, public safety, operations, and business intelligence solutions, today announced a new version (v 5.10) of its flagship unified security platform, Security Center. Among many new enhancements, this major new release allows more system components to run in the cloud, reducing the gap between cloud and on-premises security systems. It also makes it easier to connect external systems and tap external data for use in dashboards, maps and investigations without relying on complex, specialised integrations. A practical path to a hybrid-cloud architecture: The new version of Security Center brings enterprise video surveillance customers new options to facilitate their migration to the cloud as well as support flexible hybrid-cloud architectures. Taking a step further towards unified, enterprise Video-Surveillance-as-a-Service (VSaaS), the new version of Security Center Omnicast­™—the video management system of Security Center—enables the seamless use of tiered cloud and on-premises storage to manage short- and long-term video archives according to customer needs. It gives configuration flexibility and reporting capability, and supports various scenarios for real-time or on-demand access to video footage stored in the cloud. Depending on its recency and criticality, video can either be stored in high performance storage for fast access, or long-term storage to support flexible cost options, as well as data compliancy. To ensure maximum security, ingested video blocks are encrypted on-premises and then moved to the cloud using encrypted communications channels. “Last year accelerated the digital transformation of organisations big and small, inside and outside of the security industry,” said Francis Lachance, Director of Video & Appliances product group at Genetec, Inc. “Omnicast Cloud Storage is not just terabytes in the cloud. It’s a complete collection of media services that deliver the flexibility and sophistication enterprise customers need to successfully move to a hybrid-cloud video surveillance architecture.” Sipelia™ Communications Management, the module of Security Center that enables SIP-based communications between operators and intercom devices, has also been enhanced to offer support for cloud-based deployment. Genetec Record Fusion Service Security Center 5.10 introduces a new, no-code solution to connect external data sources to enhance an operator’s situational awareness. The new Record Fusion Service feature offers a simple, fast path to integrate third-party data streams from private or partner record publishers, such as traffic, utilities, or weather feeds to name only a few. Users can define tailored record types and consume data from a variety of sources including KML, JSON, and CSV documents, or set up a REST application listening point to which these external services can push records. The Genetec Record Fusion Service can be used across the entire unified platform to enhance awareness and response, provide contextual information on dynamic maps, be visualised in operational dashboards, in investigative reports, or in the unified monitoring interface. The service supports a broad range of applications, from displaying user-defined and filtered information on a map with custom graphical elements, to combining various records from a wide variety of sources to create custom aggregate records that are useful to specific operators or roles. The Record Fusion Service increases agility, enables highly specific and relevant data to be quickly and easily added to the platform, and makes security operators more efficient in accessing timely, contextual information. Mobility features Security Center 5.10 further taps mobile devices to reinvent the way organisations accomplish routine tasks on-the-go. Genetec Mobile, a unified app that enables users to access cameras, doors, and automatic license plate recognition (ALPR) units from their smartphones, now supports Genetec Mission Control™ incidents, and standard operating procedures. This allows users to trigger or view active incidents on maps or in list format, and record incidents in the field to notify colleagues in the operation center. A new specialised portal is also available to help customers manage mustering during evacuations. The Evacuation Assistant app connects to Security Center Synergis™—the access control system in Security Center—so that when an evacuation is triggered, the system automatically starts to monitor the safety status of all personnel and visitors. When people arrive at the safety area or muster point, they can badge their credential at a fixed or mobile reader, notify the muster captain that they’re safe, or inform them that someone might be at risk. If someone is shown not to have been evacuated, the system will automatically trigger a response so that security personnel can take immediate action.

With Impact’s Partnership Cloud, an integrated end-to-end solution for managing partnerships across the entire partner life cycle to activate rapid growth, Shopify Plus merchants can easily and quickly launch and automate affiliate and influencer programs without developer involvement.

With the affiliate marketing industry worth $12 billion and influencer marketing expected to be worth $15 billion by 2022, partnerships have become a critical tool for ecommerce companies to connect with new customers and drive sales. And with upcoming changes to individualised ad targeting along with growing dislike of display advertising, partnerships have become a more efficient, high-performing alternative for marketers scrambling to find new customer acquisition channels. “Traditional advertising has become less effective as consumer trust has waned, which is why partnerships, relationships built on trust, are considerably more effective,” said Michael Head, Chief Partnerships Officer at Impact. “It’s estimated that a staggering 75% of the world’s commerce is now driven through partnerships, according to the World Trade Organisation. We’re happy to join the Shopify Plus Certified App program to offer Impact’s best-in-class technology to merchants and help drive meaningful growth.” Shopify and Shopify Plus merchants can now take advantage of Impact’s Partnership Cloud through Shopify’s App Store.
