FranConnect Growth Circle Event Offers Valuable Insights to Enterprise Franchise Leaders

Franconnect, the leading provider of franchise management solutions, is hosting the seventh annual CEO Growth Circle, an exclusive opportunity for top-tier franchise executives to connect with other industry leaders, participate in open discussions, and hear from thought leaders. 
This year’s two-day conference differs from other franchisor executive events; invitations are extended exclusively to brands with 200 or more locations. The Summit will feature curated content exclusively focused on the unique challenges and opportunities faced by mature, enterprise systems. 
“This one-of-a-kind event brings together executives from non-competing companies to ensure open dialog and a free-flow of insights, strategies, and programs,” said Keith Gerson, President of Franchise Operations and CMO at FranConnect. “Attendance is on a first-come first serve basis.” 
“Not only are the number of attendees capped at 30, this event also has the smallest ratio of suppliers to Franchisors, albeit each a franchise thought leader in their own right,” added Gerson. 
Previous Growth Circle Summits have taken place in Palm Beach, FL., Washington DC, California’s Napa Valley, and Playa Del Carmen in Mexico. This year’s event is being held October 9 – 10 at the exclusive Salamander Resort & Spa in Middleburg, VA. (Salamanderresort.com). The event offers unparalleled educational and networking opportunities, as well as a tour of the award-winning “RdV Vineyards,” a session with a master sommelier, skeet shooting, and horseback riding. 
Scheduled keynote speaker, Alan Stein, Jr., is one of the world’s top motivational authors and speakers. Stein spent 15 years as a performance coach to some of the top basketball players on the planet, including 2017 & 2018 NBA Finals MVP Kevin Durant who said ““Alan played a huge role in my development on and off the court and his guidance helped me get to where I am today.” Alan now teaches audiences how to utilize the same strategies in business that elite athletes use to perform at a world-class level.

“We ensure our guests can speak openly and share information in confidence without the threat of a competitor in the room,” said Gerson. “If you are an enterprise franchisor with 200 or more locations, you won’t want to miss it.”

UpGuard Rebrands Suite of Products, Reflecting Evolution from Security Software to Third Party Vendor Risk Solution

UpGuard, the company behind the world's first cyber resilience solution, today announces the redesign of their CyberRisk platform, unveiling deeper integration, and more streamlined navigation through their UpGuard Breachsight and VendorRisk products. This rebranding signals a strategic decision to align more closely to chief customer concerns-- the prevention of data breaches and third-party vendor risk management.

The traditional methods of cyber risk mitigation are mired in obstacles. The current market for security products provides solutions that are too expensive for the majority of organizations and provide overly complex features that are not useful for teams with very specific goals. With a lack of valuable data points, the inability to prioritize information, and failure to integrate valuable insights into company risk management processes, the decision to procure a security solution may introduce undesired inefficiencies to customer teams.

With the CyberRisk platform redesign, UpGuard is lowering the hurdle for businesses in the security solution onboarding process, removing these key obstacles. UpGuard is reorganizing product features in order to focus on ease of use and better meet our varied customer needs. These product features will be grouped into two key areas, UpGuard BreachSight and VendorRisk, allowing customers to better organize the insights that provide value to their team, and integrate with other UpGuard products through a single dashboard. UpGuard streamlines the risk assessment process with the first product to provide customers information about the digital assets they have control over, the risks and threats within their organization, and the risks that emerge from their third and fourth-party supply chain. Additionally, UpGuard’s CyberRisk platform facilitates direct remediation, allowing firms with limited resources to not only identify risks but correct issues as they arise.

The launch of the CyberRisk platform dashboard provides the customer with an enterprise view of the risks to their organization. The new navigation features an integrated alerting mechanism across all UpGuard products, cutting down on noise and providing a single source for real-time notifications concerning emerging cyber risks to their business.

Built on the CyberRisk platform, the redesigned UpGuard BreachSight product will allow customers to focus on internal risks, monitoring their own products and services. Customers may also add extensions to UpGuard BreachSight, such as UpGuard’s proprietary data leak detection service.

Finally, the VendorRisk product will act as the central tool in any effective vendor risk management program, assessing the risk associated with third parties and supply chain, as well as seamlessly conducting questionnaire-based assessments and managing supporting documentation.

"We are making these changes to better address the dynamic and complex problem of cyber risk for a diverse and changing clientele," said Mike Baukes, co-founder and co-CEO of UpGuard. "CISOs, Risk Managers and Threat Intelligence Analysts all use the UpGuard platform, and we’ve redesigned the platform to reflect the diversity of our customer base, job functions, industry, and customer size. We want to make it easier for customers to buy a product that is tailored to their business and functional needs. With this new dashboard design, UpGuard is promoting greater accessibility, value, and ease of use for our customers.”

Since its inception in 2012, UpGuard has secured hundreds of millions of publicly exposed records and assisted customers in reducing time to assess vendor security performance by over 40%. Enterprises including NASA, the New York Stock Exchange, RackSpace, ADP and many others rely on the UpGuard Cyber Risk platform.

Issue 66 of The Bridge, the Materials Science Newsletter From Rigaku, is Online

The December 2018 edition of The Bridge, the materials science newsletter from Rigaku Corporation, is now available online on the company’s global website. The Bridge presents current news and analysis techniques related to X-ray based materials science, including articles, scientific papers and news reports.

The featured article this month, contributed by AXT, covers the examination of bauxite dehydroxylation using in situ X-ray diffraction (XRD). Bauxite is the primary raw material used in the manufacture of aluminum. In situ XRD carried out on a Rigaku SmartLab X-ray diffractometer was able to demonstrate that different bauxite samples behave differently, while the hydroxide phases also transform at different temperatures compared to their pure analogues.

Application reports for XRD, energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF) and wavelength dispersive X-ray fluorescence (WDXRF) are also featured. This month’s featured XRD technical note discusses high-speed in situ measurement of the aluminum metal melting process. The WDXRF application note discusses the measurement of trace elements in water using the “Ultra Carry” method, while the EDXRF note covers the quantification of cobalt (Co), bromine (Br) and manganese (Mn) in terephthalic acid (TPA) and purified terephthalic acid (PTA).

The book review for the month features "The Tangled Tree: A Radical New History of Life" by David Quammen. The book explores how recent discoveries in molecular biology can change our understanding of evolution and life’s history.

A roundup of the latest global news stories related to materials analysis is also presented, including a report about a research team at Osaka University creating a material that could improve the safety of rechargeable batteries while lowering their manufacturing costs, and a story about the development of scanners that will utilize a hybrid system combining the commonly used X-ray technology with X-ray diffraction tomography that could soon become the standard in airports around the globe.

A new “advantage series video” presents a high performance small spot benchtop EDXRF elemental analyzer. The Rigaku NEX DE VSspectrometer delivers wide elemental coverage, able to perform small spot analysis, from sodium (Na) through uranium (U), of almost any matrix - from solids, thin films and alloys to powders, liquids and slurries.

“Recent Scientific Papers of Interest” - a monthly compilation of material analysis papers appearing in recently released journals and publications - features 17 recently published papers on research relating to materials science.

Readers can subscribe to the newsletter or view the current issue online at https://www.rigaku.com/subscribe.

The Triangle is also home to many investment funds and incubators for start-ups. This competitive environment makes it hard to stand out when so many companies are performing well. The Fast 50 winners were selected and ranked based on a formula that counts revenue and profitability in the preceding three years. The numbers are crunched and analyzed by PricewaterhouseCoopers. "Beyond bolstering the top-line performance and a nose for profitability, this list of companies represents the dynamic economic fabric of the Triangle," says Jason Christie, publisher of the TBJ. "We have a mixture of private firms that have made this list for years, and we have companies m?aking this list for the first time. Collectively, they reflect the best of the best."

History was made again -- when it was announced that Mako Medical had won the top spot for the 3rd year in a row. A feat that has never happened anywhere in the country before. This is the second time Mako Medical has broken the record by being ranked #1 -- making them the only company in America to achieve this in the history of the awards. Mako Medical Laboratories has experienced explosive growth in the last few years and has quickly become a national favorite for over 50,000 medical providers around the country. Last year, Mako Medical became the first company ever to win Life Science Awards two years in a row. That same year, Mako Medical was also ranked as a Best Place to Work and announced a massive expansion with a new testing facility.

When asked about how Mako was achieving such growth Chad Price, President of Mako Medical answered with one word, "impact." Chad went on to explain that the entire purpose behind the creation of Mako Medical was to create funding for local nonprofits/charities, to employ military veterans, and to support Christan missionaries around the world. "It is why we do what we do. Some companies are focused on shareholder value. Others are focused on returns for their investors. We are focused on making an impact in others peoples' lives. The more we grow, the more people we can help. The more revenue we have -- the more funding we have to work with," says Chad. Today, Mako Medical supports over 472 different charities around the country, employs hundreds of military veterans, and supports over 80 Christian missionaries from Syria to Nigeria.

Mako Medical Laboratories is an award-winning laboratory with operations in over 12 states. Mako utilizes automation and robotics to complete some of the most difficult and rare diagnostic tests. Mako is known for its extensive community service, supporting over 400 local nonprofits and charities, hiring hundreds of military veterans and supporting over 80 international missionaries.

Remcom Announces 5G Antenna Array Design Features In XFdtd Electromagnetic Simulation Software

Remcom announces 5G antenna array design features in the latest release of XFdtd® 3D EM Simulation Software, including workflow enhancements for modeling complex devices at millimeter wave frequencies.

The advanced antenna systems in modern devices leverage beam steering and multiple data stream transmission to meet 5G throughput requirements. XFdtd provides performance metrics for 5G beam steering applications by simulating the radiation pattern for different array or subarray phasing conditions that are used to steer a beam. By considering the optimal gain levels of the various beam steering scenarios, XFdtd plots the cumulative distribution function (CDF) of the effective isotropic radiated power (EIRP) of the array as a whole. The EIRP is an important indicator of the array’s quality of coverage and is particularly valuable for analyzing 5G-capable devices that support multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO) use cases.

Rodney Korte, product manager for XFdtd, said, “The CDF of EIRP metric is growing in importance as carriers require devices to meet strict quality thresholds. Our customers designing mobile devices need to measure the gain of many signals propagating in different directions, and Remcom is at the forefront of this emerging technology. The new CDF of EIRP plot is a way to help design engineers prepare their devices for the challenging demands of 5G networks.”

The matching network design workflow has also been enhanced via XFdtd’s integration with Optenni Lab™ matching circuit optimization software. Optenni's optimized matching topology data can now be imported directly into XFdtd, providing users with immediate feedback on how the circuit will behave and eliminating the need to run another simulation. Results such as S-parameters, efficiency, and dissipated power are readily available for analysis of system performance, greatly simplifying the matching process for intricate devices with many frequency bands.

The release also introduces modeling options that improve simulation accuracy for the higher frequencies typical of the antennas in modern devices, including a new feed specifically designed for exciting microstrips, surface current measurement, and a user-defined input for surface roughness of conductors.

For more information on the latest release of XFdtd, please visit Remcom’s website. XFdtd users without an active Remcom Professional Support contract can upgrade to the latest version by contacting sales.

About Remcom: Remcom provides innovative electromagnetic simulation and wireless propagation software for users in the commercial wireless industry and government sectors. Remcom’s products are designed to work together to provide complete and accurate results when modeling propagation with real-world devices in real-world scenarios. Remcom is committed to its customers’ unique needs, offering flexible licensing options for installations of all sizes as well as custom engineered solutions.

About WordPress

WordPress started in 2003 with a single bit of code to enhance the typography of everyday writing and with fewer users than you can count on your fingers and toes. Since then it has grown to be the largest self-hosted blogging tool in the world, used on millions of sites and seen by tens of millions of people every day. WordPress started as just a blogging system, but has evolved to be used as a full content management system and so much more through the use of thousands of plugins, widgets, and themes. WordPress is limited only by your imagination.

Powersolv Partners With Leading Cybersecurity Specialists to Deliver High Quality Security Solutions That Provide Comprehensive Protection

Cybersecurity is often defined as measures taken to protect a computer or computer system against unauthorized access or attack. It includes an ever-evolving set of tools, technologies, trainings, and techniques that work together to address security threats.

The heavy dependence on technology has resulted in an enormous surge in data creation which is stored on computer systems of organizations and shared across networks. Over time, the identification of vulnerabilities in this technology makes organizations susceptible to attacks by hackers.

One of the biggest cyber-attacks in the IT history was the WannaCry ransomware attack that took over computers and encrypted hard drive contents. The hackers then demanded a huge ransom payment in Bitcoin in order to decrypt the data.

NotPetya, which originated from the compromised Ukrainian accounting software, was a major cyber-attack that spread via the same EternalBlue exploit that WannaCry used.
Equifax, the credit rating agency major, announced in July 2017 that hackers had exploited a weak link in a U.S. website application to access confidential files with personal information of millions of clients.

The consequences of data breach can be devastating to an organization and can affect not only its reputation and standing in the market, but also its revenue. The projected annual damages from cybercrime are expected to reach trillion by 2021. The projected cybersecurity spending for 2017-2021 is expected to be around trillion. The frequency and sophistication of cyber-attacks are growing with time and that’s why organizations must have a strong cybersecurity system in place to ensure that their sensitive data remains protected at all times.

Many organizations have become increasingly vulnerable, in part through modifying their infrastructure to accommodate applications, mobile devices, cloud computing, and Internet of Things (IoT). This has allowed cybercriminals to take advantage of any vulnerability they can find. It is becoming increasingly clear that traditional rule-based, reactive security methods cannot offer adequate and effective protection against today’s modern, persistent, AI driven, and creative cyberattacks. The best way to provide comprehensive security is to use a defensive in-depth approach which should include advanced full-service, AI-driven Managed Detection and Response (MDR) services.
Cybersecurity measures involve ensuring security of applications, database, infrastructure, data, network, endpoint, cloud, mobile, and others. The security of these can be breached by cyber threats such as malware, phishing, and ransomware.

Cybersecurity is addressed by creating a series of defensive measures around a definite perimeter. However, the latest industry trends such as ‘Bring Your Own Device’ (BYOD) and work from anywhere have resulted in broadening the scope of attack. Even with many organizations allocating and spending huge sums on increasing the levels of security, breaches are happening at a rapid pace across the world.

Human-centric cybersecurity that’s built on behavior analytics is the latest in this domain and focuses on changes in human behavior. The principle is based on the identification of behavioral incongruities so that grave threats can be identified, investigations can be concluded quickly, and detection times reduced drastically.

Powersolv, a premier Information Technology Services Company and one of the leading providers of Enterprise Solutions to Federal, State, and County entities as well as Local and Not-for-Profit Agencies, works with some of the biggest names in cybersecurity to provide intuitive and robust security solutions that enable organizations to detect, respond, and manage these highly evolved cyber threats.

Powersolv, working with its partners in Cybersecurity services, has become a disrupter in the security industry by introducing smart, crowd-sourced security testing through a comprehensive platform that covers every element of cyber risk. Clients are able to anticipate potential attacks and mitigate them by using a groundbreaking AI-Driven Managed Detection and Response system, designed to take down even the most sophisticated threats.

“No company wants to be in the news for reasons related to security breaches as that can bring their reputation crashing down,” says the President and CEO, Rahul Dhawan. “We help organizations stand strong and assist in stonewalling attempts at infiltrating their systems by offering one of the best security solutions available today. We have partnered with some of the biggest names in global cybersecurity solutions to strengthen our offering and transform the way companies handle their cyber security needs.”

With these strategic partnerships, Powersolv offers their clients a comprehensive solution that’s fully managed and involves the use of the best resources. The solutions are designed to provide robust protection to all the vulnerable areas of business operations by incorporating the best software, processes, and human intelligence.
