    New Service Delivers a Baseline that Provides Organizations with a Foundation that Enables them to Establish a Common Set of Procedures to Create a BYOD Policy

    Kuala Lumpur ( February 19, 2013 -- CONdition Zebra, Inc. (aka "CONZebra"), a provider of risk management and critical infrastructure security solutions, today announced its Bring Your Own Device Baseline Policy (BYOD-BP), a risk assessment service for organizations who want to develop and implement a successful comprehensive BYOD usage policy to protect their business critical data and assets.

    "CONZebra recognizes the popularity of the BYOD movement but also understands it introduces an element of risk to organizations through the possibility that data security could be compromised, which could severely damage a brand," said CONZebra President and CEO, Drew Williams. "CONZebra is dedicated to providing organizations with the risk assessment services they need to establish, implement and manage a successful corporate BYOD policy to protect their reputation and the integrity of their assets."

    Today many enterprises allow personal devices to connect to the enterprise network. CIOs like this trend because it reduces the cost of hardware, empowers the employee, improves productivity and responsiveness as well as increases employee satisfaction. However, this also introduces a non-standard environment to the mission critical IT infrastructure, plays havoc with the technology roadmap, impacts support and has the potential to expose organization to increased security threats.

    CONZebra's BYOD-BP Service Offering
    CONZebra's new BYOD Baseline Policy service addresses data theft, malware, wireless exploits, and provides proprietary data loss monitoring and access management. BYOD-BP, based on the COBIT framework, is designed to help organizations create a common set of procedures that form a foundation for establishing a corporate BYOD policy. CONZebra will work closely with an organization to:

    • Evaluate Each Operation: Organizations need to take inventory of their critical infrastructure and documents that are vital to business decisions and then determine their risk exposure levels. In addition organizations need to take a physical inventory of their devices.
    • Map Everything: Every organization needs a map to identify responsible pathways to reduce exposure to risky business practices. In addition it is important to define virtualization parameters for operation to make sure these align with your map and to create a key to identify key applications for BYOD access.
    • Develop a BYOD Policy: Once a baseline is determined an organization needs to create a corporate BYOD policy that includes acceptable usage policies.
    • Implement it: Once ethical user guidelines have been established they need to be applied.
    • Conduct Audits: Once a quarter an inventory of critical infrastructure needs to be conducted and reviewed as well as the policy to make sure it is still appropriate.

    CONZebra's BYOD-BP risk management service is available now for a flat fee. Please contact for additional details

    CONZebra is headquartered in the United States (Utah), with its APAC headquarters located outside Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; additional offices are being opened in Australia, Taiwan and Thailand.

    About CONZebra
    CONZebra provides risk nanagement and critical infrastructure security solutions that reduce risk to manageable and resolvable levels, and which focus on international and industry-specific compliance standards and frameworks. The company's strategy of combining key technologies with exclusive expertise in policy development and critical infrastructure services help mitigate operational, legal and financial threats to organizations, creating a safe harbor from which our clients can manage risk as part of their daily operations.

    SVP Sales & Marketing

    New York, New York ( February 19, 2013 -- Empress has teamed up with Unlimi-Tech Software, Inc., by implementing the FileCatalyst® SDK as part of the eMAM™ Media Asset Management platform to provide customers with faster upload and download of media files. FileCatalyst's UDP-based file transfer technology transfers files at maximum rates without being impeded by network impairments, such as latency and packet loss.

    TCP/IP forms the backbone of the internet and is the basis of popular FTP and HTTP protocols. TCP is great for loading a webpage, but is far from ideal for sustained data transfers. The FileCatalyst accelerated file transfer protocol offers incredible speed gains vs. traditional methods. Users can expect to see transfer speeds up to 138x faster than FTP.

    "We are extremely pleased that Empress, one of the leading asset management software solutions, has integrated FileCatalyst, our accelerated file transfer solution into its eMAM," says Alan Atkinson, Vice President of Business Development at Unlimi-Tech Software, Inc., "This partnership is a natural fit for both companies, while at the same time underscoring our mutual commitment to the entertainment and broadcast industry and to proving added value to Empress' digital customers.

    eMAM is capable of working with large media files from popular camera and editing systems such as DVCPro, XDCam, RED, ARRI, ProRes, DNxHD, and many other large media file formats. eMAM can work with various storage systems and has an option to seamlessly integrate with Amazon Cloud Front and Microsoft AzureCloud systems. One of the major bottlenecks for users is upload, download and transfer of these files over the internet. By implementing FileCatalyst as part of the eMAM system, users can expect faster production times and improved ROI. Similar UDP high speed file transfer systems can typically cost upwards of $50,000 or more plus client license fees. Now eMAM customers can have a powerful media asset management system with this added capability at a very affordable price.

    The combined eMAM and FileCatalyst solution will be demonstrated at the upcoming National Association of Broadcasters Convention being held in Las Vegas April 8th-11th. FileCatalyst will be at booth SL13013 and eMAM will be at booth SL12505.

    MESA, Ariz.  ( February 19, 2013 -- International children's charity Kids Wish Network and John Fulton from the Animal Planet show, "Must Love Cats," granted a unique wish to local teen, Angeline Fahey, by hosting a party and distributing gifts to her fellow pediatric patients at Cardon Children's Medical Center this past weekend. During the festivities, Kids Wish Network surprised the kids with a Gift Bank of toys worth $20,000. Kids Wish Network is a Tampa-based charitable organization dedicated to infusing hope, creating happy memories, and improving the quality of life for children having experienced life-altering situations.

    "Angeline's amazing generosity in sharing her wish with her fellow patients is truly inspiring. Kids Wish Network was proud to honor her unique wish request with a Holiday of Hope Gift Bank created especially for the kids at Cardon Children's Medical Center," said Kids Wish Network Executive Director Anna Lanzatella. "We will continue to work with our partners to provide opportunities to bring a smile to the faces of young people suffering from life altering situations."

    Early last year, 18-year-old Angeline Fahey was diagnosed with osteosarcoma - a cancer of the bone. Angeline was started on intense chemotherapy and underwent a surgery that removed a tumor in her femur. Surgeons also replaced her knee and inserted a rod in her leg. Since her last surgery, Angeline has been in and out of chemotherapy treatments, which are scheduled to continue until April.

    When given the opportunity to have a dream made real through Kids Wish Network, Angeline selflessly asked for a party to be thrown at Cardon Children's Medical Center to bring joy to the other children with whom she made friends during treatment. An avid cat lover and fan of the Animal Planet show "Must Love Cats," Angeline knew that the show's funny, talented host John Fulton would provide the perfect musical entertainment for her wish party and asked if he would attend and entertain the children in residence.

    "I wanted to share my wish with the other cancer kids," said Angeline. "They deserved a day where they didn't feel sick and they'd be given a spark of happiness. And with John [Fulton], he's such a fun guy that I knew everyone would love his performance."

    Kids Wish Network also asked Angeline to present a Hero of the Month award to 7-year-old patient Gary Daniels for his bravery in facing kidney disease. As a participant in Kids Wish Network's Hero of the Month program, Cardon Children's Medical Center nominates one child every month between the ages of 3 and 18 who has faced and overcome difficult circumstances to be their "Hero of the Month." Gary was given a recognition packet complete with a gift card, certificate, t-shirt and shiny Hero medallion.

    Kids Wish Network worked with hospital staff and Angeline to surprise the kids with a Holiday of Hope Gift Bank of $20,000 worth of toys and gifts for the children to take home and back to their hospital rooms. Kids Wish Network's Holiday of Hope Gift Banks provide emergency rooms, pediatric units, and other children's care facilities with age appropriate toys to offer a welcome distraction to children facing often traumatic or life threatening illnesses.

    "I was amazed with the toys and I was so happy to give them out because I know what it's like to sit in a hospital room day after day with nothing to do. These toys were a wonderful way to help me share my wish with them," said Angeline.

    After the toys were distributed, Animal Planet's Fulton performed several of his funny songs from "Must Love Cats" to delighted applause. The children were also entertained with a Live Photo Booth from Keith Pitts Photography and were then treated to a special cake from local Sugarlips Cakery.

    When the party was over, Angeline introduced Fulton to her cat, Ringo, and John even helped create a special keepsake featuring Ringo's paw prints and his handprints that Angeline will treasure forever. According to Angeline, it was a wonderful wish in every way.

    HOUSTON, Texas  ( February 19, 2013 -- International children's charity Kids Wish Network announced today that, thanks to the Houston Texans and generous sponsors, the wish of a Colorado Springs boy has been granted. Christian Vaught was given the opportunity to meet the Houston Texans, tour Reliant Stadium, attend a game, and spend time with his favorite players, quarterback Matt Schaub and defensive end JJ Watt. Kids Wish Network is a Tampa-based charitable organization dedicated to infusing hope, creating happy memories, and improving the quality of life for children who have experienced life-altering situations.

    "Every day, we are privileged to grant the wishes of these special children through the generous support of donors and partner organizations like the Houston Texans," said Kids Wish Network Executive Director Anna Lanzatella. "There are few things that are more satisfying than being able to put a smile on the face of a child struggling with a life threatening illness. We will continue to work with our partners to do everything we can to provide opportunities through our wish granting programs.

    At the age of two, Christian was diagnosed with a rare condition called Charcot-Marie-Tooth, which affects the nerves in the brain and the spine and progressively weakens the muscles and nerve functions, making it difficult to walk. Christian must wear braces from his feet to his ankles and relies on a walker for long distances. He has also suffers from speech apraxia - in which he has trouble communicating what he wants to say - and Chairi malformation, in which the brain tissue protrudes into the spine, causing pressure. For the Chiari malformation, Christian needed a decompression surgery on his brain that lasted six hours. For weeks after the surgery, Christian was very ill and had to endure a spinal tap and suffer through the implantation of a lumbar drain to help remove some of the excess fluid.

    Now five years old, Christian was given the chance to have a wish granted through Kids Wish Network and asked to meet his favorite football team, the Houston Texans. The charity arranged an all expenses paid trip for Christian, his younger brother, and their parents to travel to Houston. In addition to tickets to the Texans' game against the Colts, Christian and his family were also treated to dinners every evening and trips to the Space Center Hudson and the Downtown Aquarium.

    "Christian enjoyed everything," said his mother, Christine D'Andrea. "But his favorite part was definitely meeting the Texans. They took such good care of us out there that we felt like family!"

    Before the game, Christian and his family were given a special VIP tour of Reliant Stadium that included the Texans' cafeteria, gyms and locker rooms. Before the game, Christian was greeted outside the locker room with high-fives as the players prepared for the game. Following the excitement of attending his first football game, Christian couldn't believe his eyes as he was led down to meet his favorite player, quarterback Matt Schaub.

    Schaub sat down with Christian and spent time talking to the little boy and presenting him with a signed official Texans jersey, a signed football, and a division hat. When it was time for Schaub to leave, he proclaimed that Christian was his hero and he told Christian to stay strong. Then, Christian was invited onto the field to play a little catch with his dad before being joined by defensive end JJ Watt, who tossed the football with Christian and made him feel like a part of the team.

    "Christian was just delighted," said Christine. "His smile couldn't get any bigger! And he didn't have to worry about anything during his wish - no therapy, no doctors, just relaxing. I can't explain how blessed we are that this all happened. Thank you so much."

    Kids Wish Network would like to thank the following for making Christian's all expenses paid trip and wish so spectacular: the Houston Texans, Embassy Suites Denver International Airport, Enterprise, Holiday Inn Houston Reliant Park, Space Center Houston, Five Guys Burgers & Fries, Spicy Pickle Sandwich Company, Downtown Aquarium, and Olive Garden.

    (PRBuzz) February 20, 2013 -- is a full service finance advisory firm providing bespoke services to its clients in West Yorkshire. After notable success in trials, the company is opening up its nationwide mortgage service more widely than ever before.

    It used to be the case that mortgages were completed face to face with an advisor or the bank manager. Over the years, the industry has changed a great deal.

With the modern technology available through the Internet and fax, it's never been easier to get a mortgage quote and follow through to completion efficiently.

    The January House Price index figures show a 0.5% rise in prices, with a typical home now worth 162,245 pounds. This was comparable to the performance in 2012 and there are tentative signs of a bounce back of the house-buying market.

    The new service from is an expansion of the offering that has been available for some time. Damian Youell, financial advisor at, has this to say about the service - "we've been offering mortgages nationwide for quite a while now, but with the process formalised and the service offering fully in place now, we are looking to increase our customer base and widen the appeal of our offering. Clients can now go to the website and submit their details for a fast mortgage quote. We will scour the market to find the best deal to suit each and every client", promises Damian.

    The nationwide service from is perhaps one of the most time-efficient way to get a mortgage deal through. With the company accessing the whole of the mortgage market, clients are assured of a thorough market analysis. What's more, the new service is offered on a performance basis. If Damian and his teams cannot find the best mortgage to attract their clients, they do not charge a penny.

    (PRBuzz) February 20, 2013 -- Paul brings more awards to FR Buyer, this time for Retail Patriots.

    "Dear Paul,
    It is my pleasure to inform you that 'Frozen & Refrigerated Buyer Magazine - Retail Patriots Event' has been selected as a finalist in FOLIO: + min's FAME Awards in the category of Best Non-Profit/Cause Event and has (also) been selected as a finalist in FOLIO: + min's FAME Awards in the category of Best Awards/Recognition Program-Up to 50,000 Circ. The competition was fierce and to place as a finalist is a major accomplishment... "
    I suspect that when my partner Paul Chapa got this e-mail on Jan. 23 his heart skipped a beat. I know mine did when he forwarded it along to me, with a few exclamation points for good measure.

    These awards are international in scope and they include the big leagues -- other finalists with us include Cosmopolitan magazine, Women's Health magazine and even an Australian publishing company.

    Folio magazine serves the publishing industry, and its awards are our equivalent of the Academy Awards. And "min" is shorthand for the Media Industry Newsletter, which honored us a couple years back for "Hottest Magazine Launch."

    Our Retail Patriots Event honors retailers that have gone above and beyond the call of duty in supporting our men and women in uniform and our veterans. We share the credit for the honors with many. There's Ruiz Foods, which has underwritten costs of the event each year. There's the National Frozen & Refrigerated Foods Association, which gives us a great time slot for the event at the convention each year. Finally, credit goes to the many who attend the event, including active military and senior officers, veterans from the industry and convention attendees who care deeply for the brave men and women who have sacrificed so much for us.

    Back when we started this program, during a conference call with the folks from Ruiz, I had no idea how far it would go. We were replacing an awards program from a now-defunct magazine that honored "Best New Product" and such. On that conference call, we all agreed we wanted an awards program that was for everyone, without any politics, perhaps supportive of a charity.

    Conversation quickly turned to our troops and veterans, and we had our mission. Paul dove in with enthusiasm and boundless energy. In no time, he had made friends with generals and other military leaders -- and I'm talking about friends as in people who come to your house and visit with their families. He arranged for Marine Corps color guards and bands, recruited speakers for the event, and inspired more than a few retailers to step up their efforts to support our veterans.

    As I write this, he's off helping serve dinner to some Marines at a gathering held in their honor. And in June, he's receiving the Semper Fidelis award of the Marine Corps Law Enforcement Foundation at Bally's Resort in Atlantic City. In my book, this award is all Paul's. I'm proud to have him as my partner.
