CIO Assessment Program Launched by Click Consulting

Click Consulting has created a new service helping small businesses understand the way that technology fits inside of their business, the CIO Assessment. After looking at the way technology was treated inside of their own client’s businesses, Click Consulting decided that they had to develop a system of connecting business goals and IT so that technology was no longer overhead but rather a driver of business.

“In today’s climate of tighter spending and shrinking margins, IT can become a true driver of business growth if the appropriate technologies are in place,” said Jeff Lenning, president, Click Consulting. “Our CIO Assessment program helps companies analyze their current situations and makes recommendations based on each company’s unique requirements. We keep up with the latest technologies so that our clients can focus on running their businesses.”

Most small businesses spend their time thinking about their business, not the technology that runs it. At the same time, most managed services companies just maintain the IT infrastructure without thinking about the business it exists within. Few IT service firms ever work with small businesses from a business perspective; instead everything becomes a maintenance issue so growth never occurs as a result of IT spending. Click Consulting decided that this downward spiral needed to stop.

The CIO Assessment process starts with in-depth interviews of major stakeholders and decision makers at the company to understand the business choices that are being made. Then, after a deep inspection of the technology currently used at the company, Click Consulting delivers a report complete with suggestions about how to better align technology and the business. The assessment becomes a roadmap, helping guide the growth and profits of the company over time.

Belden’s New Adaptive Enclosure Heat Containment System “Greens” The Data Center By Slashing Cooling Costs

Belden (NYSE: BDC), a world leader in the development of signal transmission products for industrial, enterprise, building management, broadcast, and security applications, has introduced a new adaptive enclosure heat containment (AEHC) system for data centers that will ensure the entire room is normalized with cold air to just the right amount, with no wasteful oversupply of cooling.

Carl Bruckner, General Manager of Belden’s Cable Management Group, states: “The AEHC system is a key addition to Belden’s enclosure products, allowing our partners to effectively manage the deployment of high density, high heat load equipment in both new and existing data centers.”

In the new Belden system, a pressure reading made by a sensor inside the enclosure plenum modulates the rotational speed of the fans in the two cartridges mounted atop the enclosure. The speed is varied so that they pull out exactly the correct amount of air from the enclosure and send it back to the air conditioner return via a ceiling plenum.

The process of cooling enclosures in a data center today wastes excessive amounts of energy, largely due to oversupply of cold air by computer room air conditioner (CRAC) units attempting to compensate inefficiency in the enclosure cooling process.

A recent study on 19 large computer rooms found that, on average, the amount of cold air supplied to a data center room is 2.6 times the amount of cold air actually consumed by the IT load. The CRAC is oversupplying the room with cold air to overcome both bypass leakage and the effects of hot/cold mixing. The result is a significant waste of energy and dollars.

However, because of its innovative heat containment design, the new Belden AEHC system overcomes these problems. Since it completely separates the hot and cold side of operations, the room will be normalized with cool air which never experiences mixing with exhaust heat from the enclosure. The bypass problem is eliminated, too.

There is no need to oversupply cold air to the room.

The physical position of the CRAC unit and its proximity to the enclosures are no longer a concern, a fact which greatly simplifies the challenge of data room infrastructure design. Cool air can be fed to the computer room via a raised floor or an overhead duct which enhances your freedom of infrastructure design.

When designing a totally new data center with the AEHC system, you can now install bigger and fewer CRAC units, instead of relying on many smaller units that are less efficient. And when retrofitting an existing room, you can use the same amount — and same type — of cooling equipment currently installed. In either scenario, Belden’s advanced management software will help you better control your IT environment by giving you real time assessment of enclosure cooling load or demand.

You will be able to deploy more IT load in the same room, a great efficiency benefit in today’s economy. If you have space left in your enclosures but aren’t deploying more devices there because your cooling system is already at full capacity, you can retrofit Belden’s new heat containment system on those enclosures that have the highest heat loads, to be able to host even more IT equipment.

As a bonus, the AEHC system increases the temperature differential between the inlet and outlet temperatures of the CRAC unit for much greater operational efficiency, giving you an important savings in energy consumption. With no mixing of hot and cold air, it is possible to raise the temperature of the cooling air supplied to enclosures to be closer to the ASHRAE recommended upper limit. The cold/hot air paths are fully separated by the system, so the CRAC supplies less air to the room at a higher temperature, and still assures better cooling with no hot spots.

Users Turn To Motivational Eco-Friendly Computer Accessory In Tough Economic Times

In these distressed economic times, Americans are turning to positive reinforcements to uplift and encourage them. Inlectronics Inc. has created an eco-friendly computer accessory to motivate and inspire its user by metaphysically attracting positive energy online, without wasting energy through batteries or electricity.

There are constant news stories about dwindling stocks, unemployment rise, foreclosed homes and investment scams. In tough economic times like these, most relate to products that are encouraging and able to impel them in some way. In their search for stimulating accessories, computer users buy peripheral that fits in with their personality. Environmentalists appreciate items that are eco-friendly and biodegradable. Inlectronics Inc. has taken a familiar symbol and combined these attributes to create an environmentally safe computer accessory they believe will motivate and inspire.

Known as the Yin Yang Webmaster™, this computer accessory is shaped like the highly recognized Tai Chi symbol, a perfect circle with two contrasting light and dark colors, symbolizing the creation of life together sustaining inside itself the essence of the opposite energy. According to Chinese philosophy, having a harmonious balance of both Yin and Yang Feng Shui energies will create the quality of energy needed to live a healthy and fulfilling life. Inlectronics Inc. has expanded on this concept and believes that Feng Shuiing ones online activities can lead to love, happiness, health, prosperity, knowledge, and success, all from their computer. Unlike other accessories, this peripheral glows in the dark without the use of batteries or electricity, and is safe for the planet.

“Equivalent to a rabbit’s foot or four leaf clover, it’s the 2009 version of a good luck charm,” according to Z. Wilson, Inlectronics Inc. President and CEO. “Years ago people enjoyed covering their dressers and desks with beanie babies and model cars. Within this era, it’s all about what looks good and works best with your computer.”

Made of ABS material, this 7¼” decorative peripheral, once attached to the desktop, laptop, notebook or PC, is intended to inspire its user to complete important tasks, as well as motivate individuals to fully accomplish their goals. Inlectronics Inc.’s motto of ‘Feng Shui your PC and fulfill your destiny’ is intended to stress this mission.

Although the Yin Yang Webmaster™ is sold to everyone, according to current sales, the majority of purchasers are men. Research shows that men recognize and respect the popular Yin Yang symbol. The company also believes the glow in the dark feature is an appealing aspect, as it beams brightly without batteries or electricity. Teens claim they like the Webmaster™ due to the recognizable symbol and unique features compared to other computer accessories. Women who have purchased the product have said they appreciate its eco-friendly and biodegradable qualities. Parents and educators have positively commented on the affordability and motivational aspect of the product.

Due to the faltering economy, Inlectronics Inc. has lowered the price of the Yin Yang Webmaster™ to $19.95, which includes free shipping and handling, applied only to the first 5,000 Webmasters™ sold.

Inlectronics Inc., creator of the Webmasters™ product line, is a pioneer in providing unique inspirational pieces that empower its users to balance the energies of their online activities. The company’s mission is to give Internet users a strong sense of identity and purpose, and to represent to the world at large an iconic image that identifies who they are and what they stand for. They service both the computer and electronic industry, as well as serve both the consumer and professional market. Although they maintain locations in Bronx, NY and New York, NY, their products are sold exclusively through their website.

Expansion of company’s SecureAuth authentication products fuels growth

MultiFactor Corporation, an innovator in 2-way 2-factor authentication, Web application security and SSL VPN Authentication solutions, announces record fourth quarter growth of its SecureAuth authentication products, despite the slumping global economy.

Thomas Stewart, CFO of MultiFactor Corporation stated, “Our recently completed Q4 ‘08 sales revenues maintained 300 percent quarter over quarter growth for the third consecutive quarter as enterprises and Web operators are increasingly adopting SecureAuth as a superior authentication method for SSL VPN, IPsec VPN, and secure Web applications. We are very happy with our ‘08 results and our projections for 2009 are strong.”

A contributing factor to SecureAuth’s continued market growth was the addition in the third and fourth quarter of native integration into Juniper SSL VPN products, CA’s SiteMinder and the IBM Tivoli Security Products. This complements very strong adoption for SecureAuth with Cisco ASA SSL VPNs, Microsoft Outlook Web Access, Microsoft SharePoint Server and all .NET applications. New customers were drawn to the automated simplicity of a truly strong dual factor authentication scheme. SecureAuth’s low acquisition cost and minimal implementation burden provided added incentive to move forward.

“Security concerns have not subsided due to the economic downturn,” said Craig Lund, CEO of MultiFactor Corporation. “On the contrary, threats are increasing and rendering legacy authentication methods practically obsolete. SecureAuth’s novel technology allows companies to have the strongest authentication without the large capital investment.”

“In these times, we are fortunate to be operating in the relatively resilient sector of IT security,” added Lund. “However, we are even more fortunate to have a product with a price/performance value far superior to any competitive or substitutive technology.”

About MultiFactor Corporation
MultiFactor Corporation is the leader in automated 2-way 2-factor user authentication.

MultiFactor Corp. announces the integration of its flagship product, SecureAuth(r) and Data Guard Systems’ newest product, AlertBoot

MultiFactor Corporation, an innovator in 2 factor authentication, Web application security and SSL VPN Authentication solutions, today announced the integration of its flagship product, SecureAuth® and Data Guard Systems’ newest product, AlertBoot.

AlertBoot transforms enterprise-level full disk encryption and data security into a fully-managed and centralized Web-based service. It promises customers the same benefits as a traditional full disk encryption and data security solution, but on a platform that is scalable to the needs of an organization and requires far less investment in IT infrastructure, support, and training.

“A Web-based platform and an emphasis on a user-friendly customer experience were common ground for AlertBoot and SecureAuth,” said Timothy Maliyil, Data Guard’s Systems’ CEO. “And it didn’t take long to realize that SecureAuth could integrate X509 certificate technology authentication in a way that wouldn’t affect delivery of AlertBoot’s basic product performance while maintaining the integrity of key differentiators of speed and convenience.”

SecureAuth revolutionized X509 certificate technology authentication into a tokenless, non-phishable, two-way authentication solution that can be effortlessly deployed over the Web and requires virtually no training or infrastructure modifications to implement and manage. The solution proved to be a perfect match for the type of multi-factor authentication system AlertBoot needed for AlertBoot Central, its administrative console.

“This level of security becomes especially critical, considering the new type of DNS phishing attacks Hackers have been mounting,” said Garret Grajek, COO of MultiFactor Corporation. “These attacks fool a DNS server—which directs alphabetical URL requests to the corresponding numerical IP address of a website—into directing the user unknowingly to a hacker-created site where they capture your log-in information. However, when a hacker attempts to replay your log-in in AlertBoot, the absence of a certificate prevents them from gaining access.”

SecureAuth works by authenticating both the user and the client for each session via a non-exportable cryptographic credential. When an authorized user logs into AlertBoot Central for the first time, they’re immediately redirected to the SecureAuth registration system, which emails them a PIN. Once they enter the PIN, the system installs the certificate on their computer. From that point on, whenever the user logs into the AlertBoot management console, they’re instantly authorized.

The end result is that the user and customer both enjoy the full security benefits of X509 certificate technology authentication, but without the additional infrastructure that would have otherwise been required.

About MultiFactor Corporation
MultiFactor Corporation is the leader in strong, simple to use, user authentication. SecureAuth is a true plug-n-play dual factor authentication mechanism that allows secure access into the enterprise network and application resources. Enabling the enterprise to cost effectively harness the true power of the network. Please visit http://multifa.com.

Guide On Buying A Better UPS

Traditionally, Specifying requirements, and Purchasing the specified product are two main consecutive stages while procuring most industrial systems. Based on study results adding a Cost Oriented Reevaluation (COR) stage, can boost significantly ROI; always of prime importance, particularly with present economy.

Generally, specification aims for simplest solutions which meet users “must have” requirements. Main UPS parameters are Output power (SIZE), Type (topology) and Battery Backup time. Size is dictated by consumers which will be protected. Back up time and the types of the systems depend on the particular application.

Three dominant UPS types are offered by manufacturers. The Off-Line type solves outages and short-term grid disturbances; Line-Interactive type solves also Undervoltage and Overvoltage disturbances, whereas the On-Line type provides the best solution to all grid related disturbances.

The simplest, Off Line UPS, is recommended for protecting home computer applications. Line Interactive systems are used for small networks, implemented in stores, restaurants, small offices. On-Line systems protect high power, installations, data centers, on line service providers, industry, and other critical applications.

In the process of checking the pros and cons of On-Line versus Line interactive UPS for a particular project, UPSonNet found that some On-Line systems were cheaper, compared to equivalent Line Interactive types. Deeper investigation, suggested that the assumption of constant Price to Power ratio should also be questioned.

This led to performing a study of UPS market prices, from small 350VA size systems up to 120kVA installations. The research was based on market prices, of main brands like APC, Powerware, Tripplite as well as smaller good standing companies, and filtering the results by a weighting factor representing supplier’s market share.

The mentioned dual stage procurement method, of preparing technical specification to meet needed requirements, followed by a purchasing stage based on the technical specification is justified, assuming positive price to performance behavior and linear behavior of price to output power ratio.

The study violates these assumptions. A better UPS may cost less, while significantly higher power may have a slight effect on price. Market prices are affected by numerous factors, such as, technological innovations, strength and preferences of individual producers, popularity of certain power levels or certain brands, and more. Therefore, no price logic is obeyed when individual systems, are concerned.

UPS Industry Price List, presented on UPSonNet’s website displays the final study results. The information enables to rise beyond the individual system and see both the forest and the trees. It allows achieving optimal solution by analyzing each specific case, in order to deduce the impact of size and topology on system cost.

Research results call for additional Cost Oriented Reevaluation Stage, before the specification is confirmed and forwarded to purchasing department. The COR stage should investigate alternate solutions, and modify UPS specification for getting superior technical performance and better economical outcome.

Guiding steps on UPSonNet’s site, direct users how to use UPS Price List to gain significant advantages. COR implementation enables to achieve such benefits as system upgrading, extending output power, increasing back up time, introducing redundancy, and more, while decreasing system cost sometimes by almost 40%.

In conclusion, UPS market price study contradicts assumed correlation between cost and performance. Thus, practice of specifying the simplest UPS to meet requirements doesn’t provide lowest cost. Implementing COR enables maximizing ROI.

Earthtone Today Gave Its First Public Indication Of The Scale Of Print Provider Interest In Its Revolutionary E-Commerce Platform

Earthtone, providers of e-commerce solutions for the print industry, announced that in the two months after the launch of its e-commerce platform in July, in excess of 500 US print providers and 150 UK print providers registered to join the network.

Earthtone is the first e-commerce solution designed to meet the needs of tens of thousands of independent print businesses, bringing together world-class e-commerce solutions, a commission based commercial model and a market-defining service proposition to enable tens of thousands of smaller, independently operated print businesses to capitalize on customers’ shift to e-procurement.

With InfoTrends, a global strategic consulting firm focused on document technology, predicting that e-commerce will account for 45% of the print market* – up from 14% today – Earthtone is a timely solution to the problems facing smaller print providers looking to exploit the online document printing opportunity. In contrast to web-to-print solutions – which require upfront investment and ongoing charges and offer questionable returns on investment – Earthtone’s commission-based commercial model offers print providers risk-free e-commerce.

Moreover, Earthtone’s vendor-neutral business model creates economies of scale, enabling smaller businesses to deploy world-class e-commerce solutions and compete with big brands for market share. Print shops benefit from a search engine optimized online storefront and a range of features – like integrated shipping, online payment processing and support for over 100 file formats – that extend their reach and help them to attract and retain customers from across the web.

Kourosh Kaghazian, Vice President for Business Development, commented on Earthtone’s performance in August and early September: “We’re confident that our service meets printers’ need for affordable, risk-free e-commerce. We’re seeing interest from all quarters, including small and medium sized commercial printers, locally-focused independent print centers, and franchisees from, amongst others, the Sir Speedy, Minuteman and AlphaGraphics networks. Looking forward, we foresee an increase in the rate of registrations in the run up to launch.”

With its recently announced partnership with ICED – owner of the Kwik Kopy, Kwik Kopy Business Center, Inkwell and Franklin brands – expected to augment these figures significantly, Earthtone seems set to shake up the online printing landscape when it launches in October.

About Earthtone:
Earthtone creates world-class e-commerce solutions for the print industry. Earthtone’s global printing platform connects businesses and individuals to local print providers over the web, delivering secure, convenient and user-friendly online print procurement to buyers. By channeling buyers to the network, Earthtone creates growth opportunities for print providers, who pay nothing to join the network and are charged no ongoing fees.

WOW!Keys, the world’s first keypad enhancement software for Windows, that lets you turn numeric keypads into lean, mean typing and mousing machines

TESA Tech Group announces WOW!Keys, the world’s first keypad enhancement software that lets you turn numeric keypads into lean, mean typing and mousing machines. WOW!Keys runs under Windows 2000 and above, and works on the vast majority of numeric keypads, including those built into standard keyboards and a wide variety of external models.

WOW!Keys features NILPware(tm), an intuitive, one-handed method of typing based on combination key presses called chords. While memorizing the most often used chords is helpful, it is not required to start productively NILPing. An Instant NILPer module keeps a chord chart on top of a basic notepad, letting users start working as soon as they learn how to read the chart. Three other training modules, plus unique View-Do Help, make mastering NILPing fun and easy. Users can expect to achieve speeds faster than pen or thumbpad input after only a few hours of training, and should reach speeds in the 30-60+ word per minute range after 30 or 40 hours of practice.

WOW!Keys features the first truly usable, adjustable software Virtual Mouse for keypads, and fast easy mode switching between one-handed typing, mousing and 10-key data entry.

The company envisions a wide variety of usage scenarios including:

· As the perfect remote for living room based, Media PC’s (with a wireless keypad)

· In belt worn mode, as a compact, ergonomic input device for Tablet, Ultramobile and Wearable PC users (who greatly benefit from the one-handed operation)

· In hand held mode, as the best presentation input device, allowing presenters and teachers to type notes overhead and do full text Internet searches, from anywhere in a room (even while standing or walking)

· Online Game Chatters can text chat or taunt opponents at high speed while still having one hand on the mouse for fighting or fleeing · Non-typists who find it easier to learn and master than traditional QWERTY typing

· Existing external keypad users, tired of needing both an external keypad and mouse with their laptops, can use WOW!Keys Mouse Mode on their keypad, and pack just one peripheral

· Anyone who could use dramatically more free space on their desks

TESA Tech Group is actively pursuing licensing WOW!Keys technology, so eventually it may be available in cell phones, game controllers and the must have combination device of tomorrow.

WOW!Keys with NILPware 1.0 is priced at $49.95. As an Introductory Special, TESA Tech Group is giving free USB external numeric keypads to the first 50 customers. A 15-day free trial download is available at
