MaidSafe to Host International Developer Conference

SAFE DevCon 2018 will create a forum for developers to learn best practice and collaborate with peers

Ayr, SCOTLAND, February 16th February 2018 – MaidSafe, the developer of the world’s first and only autonomous data network, today announced it will be hosting SAFE DevCon 2018, its first European Developer Conference, in Ayr, Scotland on April 23rd. The complimentary one-day event at Ayr Racecourse is aimed at developers looking to build applications on the SAFE (Secure Access For Everyone) Network. Following the success of its first Asian Developer Conference in 2017, MaidSafe wants to provide European developers with a forum to discuss best practice for building applications on the platform.

This first event will be a small conference so that MaidSafe can hear feedback from developers and begin to map out its long-term strategy for supporting this key stakeholder group. Attendees will be able to meet the MaidSafe team, who will explain why the SAFE Network has very low infrastructure costs and how it will enable highly scalable applications with built-in revenue streams. Developers interested in attending can apply by submitting their names directly to outreach@maidsafe.net (including the individual’s safenetforum I.D. if they have one). Depending on the number of respondents MaidSafe will select names randomly to attend. The successful individuals must be able to fund their travel to Scotland, but MaidSafe will pay for accommodation for two nights.

“We are delighted to be launching our first developer event on home soil and look forward to this becoming an annual event,” said David Irvine, founder and CEO, MaidSafe. “The developers who attend will have the opportunity to meet key individuals involved in the development of the SAFE Network, understand the underlying technology in detail, discuss the APIs and the future roadmap. There will also be opportunities for best practice workshops with fellow developers and training sessions provided by the MaidSafe development team.”

The full agenda will be finalised in the next few weeks and updates will be provided on the SAFE Network Forum (https://safenetforum.org/). MaidSafe will also livestream the event for those unable to attend in person and will publish any technical materials produced to support the conference.

Security specialist Greenbone develops dedicated Scan-profile for quick vulnerability checking

Osnabrueck / London, February 15th 2018 – Greenbone, a provider of vulnerability management solutions for IT networks, has announced the availability of a purpose-built scan-profile, allowing users of Greenbone’s products to scan for the vulnerabilities included in Microsoft’s Patch Tuesday. Using the profile, users can rule out potential risks in the course of the update, like manual errors or omitted systems.

Every second Tuesday of each month, Microsoft regularly releases security patches for its software products. This year’s February patch contains 25 vulnerabilities that relate to over 50 Common Vulnerability and Exposures (CVEs) – 14 of which are deemed critical. The severity of an Adobe flash vulnerability, which is already being exploited, has been explicitly pointed out by at least one researcher.

In response to this, Greenbone now offers a special scan profile for users of its Greenbone Security Manager, the Greenbone Community Edition or openVAS. This allows users to quickly check their infrastructure for newly identified vulnerabilities, while mitigating potential risks such as manual errors during the update and forgotten systems in the automatic update process. Users can request the scan profiles for free via e-mail.

“The risks IT networks are facing are ever growing. Thankfully, Microsoft provides users and administrators with fixes to enhance the security of their IT infrastructure, but for the patch to be thoroughly successful, we have developed a special scan profile that can be applied with our technology. In addition to our automated daily security feed that encompasses tests for more than 58,600 vulnerabilities, this scan works where it is most needed”, says Dirk Schrader, Chief Marketing Officer at Greenbone.

Requests for the free MS February Patch Tuesday scan profile for Greenbone Security Manager, Greenbone Community Edition and OpenVAS can be made via patchtuesday@greenbone.net.

About Greenbone
Founded in 2008, Greenbone Networks is a leading, global provider of vulnerability management solutions. Based on open source software, the Greenbone Security Manager (GSM) analyses IT networks – including desktop computers, servers, software applications, routers and VoIP devices – identifying security vulnerabilities, providing detailed reports and instructions to resolve security issues before attackers are able to exploit them.

Helix Core From Perforce Chosen to Support Agile Development of Kingdom Come

Development of the widely anticipated new RPG game from Warhorse Studios leveraged Perforce for flexibility and visibility

MINNEAPOLIS, MN, February 13, 2018 – Perforce Software, a provider of solutions to enterprise teams requiring productivity, visibility, and scale along the development lifecycle, today announced that Helix Core is the chosen versioning platform supporting the Agile-based development of Kingdom Come: Deliverance, the recently released medieval-themed RPG game from Czech-based Warhorse Studios. Helix Core has given the Warhorse team the flexibility and visibility needed for a development project that involved an extremely high volume of binary assets.

The game features a highly realistic world, with majestic castles and vast fields – all rendered in stunning high-end graphics. Helix Core streamlines the process of working with the game’s large digital files by feeding them into Warhorse Studios’ continuous integration pipeline, while simultaneously supporting the company’s Agile development approach.

“Helix Core made it possible to manage our large binary files,” said Martin Klìma, Executive Producer at Warhorse Studios and long-time advocate of Agile workflows and Continuous Delivery. “Before, when we were using Subversion, it was unwieldy, impossible even.”

Helix Core allows the studio to safeguard all the artefacts that come out of its nine TeamCity build servers – numbering some 1.5TB of files across 75 users – providing the team with a truly Agile framework where everything is transparent and traceable. Through integration with Python, Helix Core also gives Warhorse Studios robust disaster recovery backup.

The game was recently released in the Americas, Europe and all PAL regions for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

About Warhorse Studios and Kingdom Come: Deliverance
Warhorse Studios is a young independent game developer studio from the Czech Republic, Prague. It was founded by Daniel Vávra, creator of Mafia and Mafia 2, and Martin Klíma, formerly of ALTAR (Original War, UFO:* trilogy). The studio contains a mix of experienced game industry veterans, with dozens of games published and millions of copies sold, and young guns from all around the world.

In January 2014, Warhorse launched a Kickstarter campaign for a realistic medieval RPG game called Kingdom Come: Deliverance. It ended up being the third most successful project, according to the number of backers, in 2014. With an initial goal of £300,000, it finally gathered over £1.1M. Warhorse Studios was also named among the World‘s TOP10 Most Innovative Companies on Kickstarter of 2015 by Fast Company.

Kingdom Come: Deliverance is a story-driven open-world RPG that immerses the player in an epic adventure in the Holy Roman Empire. The player incarnates Henry, the son of a blacksmith, dragged by fate into a bloody conflict and shoves him into a raging civil war, where he helps fight for the future of Bohemia. Although yet to be commercially released, Kingdom Come: Deliverance received a ‘Best PC Game of the gamescom’ award from gamescom 2017 in Germany.

Aerohive® Enters Secure Access Management Market with Industry’s First Hybrid Cloud Authentication and Onboarding Solution

Innovative device provisioning, profiling, and access product provides cutting-edge functionality to securely onboard, manage, and control all types of connected devices, including IoT and BYOD.

London, UK. — February 8, 2018 — Aerohive Networks™ (NYSE: HIVE), a Cloud Networking leader, in a statement of direction, today announced Aerohive A3, the industry’s first hybrid cloud-access management solution, intended for release in early Q2 2018.

Aerohive A3 will provide a comprehensive portfolio of access-management functionality to enable onboarding and security for Internet of Things (IoT), BYOD and standard wired and wireless clients. The Aerohive A3 solution includes capabilities to deliver a complete, secure access solution, such as automated device provisioning, device profiling and network access control, self-service onboarding, and even guest access, all without the operational complexities associated with competing offerings.

Aerohive A3 will be compatible with network equipment from all major vendors, significantly broadening Aerohive’s market reach, and will feature unique, value-added functionality when deployed as part of the Aerohive SD-LAN / SD-WAN platform, such as integrated Private Pre-Shared Key (PPSK) management and management from Aerohive’s HiveManager®.

The Aerohive A3 solution is also unique in its ability to be deployed on-premises, akin to more traditional AAA and Access Management solutions, and, in the future, as a cloud service accessible from the Aerohive Cloud Services platform. It also will be possible to configure a combination of the two, with certain functions distributed to remote premises and others centrally managed from the public or private cloud.

Aerohive aims to deliver a complete, integrated Cloud Networking product for effective network security and client management. Combined with streamlined workflows, an intuitive UI, and Aerohive’s Cloud networking competency, Aerohive A3 will greatly simplify IoT and BYOD setup and ongoing management. While traditional solutions typically require an extensive professional services commitment, Aerohive’s offering will mitigate the need to rely on expensive professional services. Combined with very attractive pricing, customers will be able to enjoy a significantly lower total cost of ownership (TCO) for greater network access control over all devices connecting to their network.

“We recognized the sizable opportunity presented by the complexity and user experience of current access management solutions”, said Abby Strong, VP of Product Management & Product Marketing at Aerohive. “They can be grouped into two categories: complicated, and complicated and expensive. Aerohive’s offering will address the operational complexity issues, while providing superior functionality at a highly competitive price point. We are confident that our solution will quickly gain significant traction in the access management market.”

Aerohive A3 will be available Q2 2018. Contact us at info365@aerohive.com for pricing
