A New Approach to Data Security – Gemalto

Happy New Year All!

Like most (if not all) of you, I took some time off during the holiday season to recharge the batteries for 2017 but did carve out a few hours in between a few dozen bowl games to finish up Certifications for Veeam (Technical Sales Professional) plus Gemalto (Sales Professional), which is very important for those organizations looking to secure their Data.

As part of Gemalto’s training, they speak about how their product line provides multiple layers of protection by offering security in both the Core as well as at the Edge by providing Data Encryption, Crypto Management and Enterprise Authentication for organizations of all sizes. Gemalto also talks about Perimeter Security alone is no longer enough as your Data is the new Perimeter as Malicious Outsiders and Insiders are potentially your biggest threats to consider. Understanding that in 2015 there were over 700 million reported (can’t imagine what was NOT reported) records breached, which amounts to 22 records breached EVERY SECOND, that should get you to sit up in your seat and be concerned.

Data records Lost or Stolen by Industry starts with Government followed by Healthcare along with Technology, Retail and Education as the biggest offenders. When you also consider that the FBI shows that 50%-80% of these attacks originate from BEHIND THE FIREWALL, so your Data is completely exposed if those internal users walk off with your highly valuable information.

The Three Steps that your organizations need to follow to secure your Data is:

  1. Encrypt and Secure Data – Data at Rest and Data in Motion Encryption
  2. Own and Secure Keys – Crypto & Enterprise Key Management
  3. Control Access – Strong Multi-Factor Authentication

These type of discussions need to work in Physical, Virtual and Cloud environments so regardless of your infrastructure, this needs to become top of mind when a Breach occurs, just ask the DNC what impact the alleged Russian Government Breach has done to their opposition assessment of the President-Elect, not pretty right?

We here at DirecLogix are here to help you with determining what type of solution would work best for you, so please contact me at so we can start preparing an assessment for your organization. Happy New Year!

Happy New Year – Let’s Be Safe Out There!

As we close out a tumultuous Tech Year of 2016 where we have seen huge advances into Virtual Reality, Internet of Things, Cloud, Agility, Mobility but still have concerns about Security (heard any rumors of another major Hack lately?), well in just a couple of days we get to start with a fresh slate in 2017. Also keep in mind that we have a new Administration taking over in a few weeks, which could speed up or alter Technology trends faster than we have seen before, much more to follow.

Knowing that many of us will be celebrating New Year’s Eve in a matter of hours, I’m sending a reminder that we need to be on our own high-alert status to be aware that those of us who have taken a drink or know someone who has been drinking, to please keep those folks off the road this weekend or frankly at anytime they are impaired to drive. Even though fewer people are driving drunk (see Miami Herald article:, there are far too many accidents related to impaired/distracted drivers and this is the time to be especially vigilant.

Besides utilizing ride-sharing services like Uber or Lyft to get people home safely, AAA is also offering their Holiday Safe Ride Program ( where AAA reminds motorists to travel safely and drive drug- and alcohol-free when hitting the roads. For those who do plan to drink, AAA urges them to take safety precautions in advance: designate a non-drinking driver, call a cab or stay with a friend. You can also contact AAA if you need a safe ride home, by calling 1-800-AAA-HELP (800-222-4357) for assistance.

Please enjoy your New Year’s Celebration, let’s just be sure that you are mindful of people who don’t belong on the road, so please use the resources listed above to assist you in finding alternate travel or better yet, have a designated driver ready to assist you in getting home safely so we can talk again next year.

Happy New Year All!

Merry Chanukah-Mas!

For only the 4th time in the past 100 years (and the 1st time since 1959), Chanukah and Christmas have fallen on the same day, could this be any better? Even though this could bring out some rather strange dinner combinations at family gatherings (Turkey, Chicken, Matzo, Latkes, Cornbread, Cranberries, Pumpkin Pie…Ham, nope out of the question…) it is a perfect time to reflect and give Thanks for all that we have as we close out 2016.

Please let me extend Best Wishes to all of my family, friends, teammates, followers, clients, partners for a safe and wonderful Holiday Season and for a prosperous 2017!

3D Imaging with the World’s Worst Model Ever, Me!

While attending ITPalooza last week, I had the chance to experience a wide range of cool Tech Solutions during the event besides helping manage our DirecLogix Booth along with Red Hat and got to speak to lots and lots of folks about Open Source solutions plus I was also able to moderate a session hosted by Microsoft on how Azure can assist developers on IoT solutions that are first coming to market. On top of all that I also had chances to hear our keynote sessions from Centrify and Amazon Web Services and learn the latest on their view of Security and Cloud as well as test out Virtual Reality and take a test drive in a Tesla (only in my dreams) but alas, I didn’t get a chance to win one.

Naturally it was a long and tiring day until one of my colleagues told me to head over to the 3D Imaging Booth sponsored by ZeroPoint3D ( as they would take a 3D image of me in their booth in a matter of a few minutes, which sounded easy enough. Knowing that I’m not the best looking model that ever ventured into their booth, I took the challenge of standing on a rotating podium and probably within 1-2 minutes the pictures were completed and another couple of minutes, the rendering was finishing and voila, there was a 3D Mini Me image of myself on-screen! I did make the suggestion of cropping me out of the picture and using People’s latest Sexiest Man Alive, Duane Johnson, but they left my image on-screen instead.

All of this occurred in under 5 minutes of time and when you think about the applications that can be available with this very new type of device, it can be one of the most disruptive technologies ever created. Think about Healthcare with a dentist being able to fit caps, moldings, implants and dentures almost immediately without having to wait for a lab or how about creating prosthetic limbs for disabled people all virtually on the spot without having to wait on a laboratory to ship to their facility. 3D Printing can potentially have a tremendous impact in the entire $13T (that’s T as in Trillion) Manufacturing Supply Chain by being able to create new or replacement parts by scanning them in and producing the new part in a matter of minutes or hours at a significantly lower cost then through traditional manufacturing supply chains. There is much more coming down the road when it comes to 3D Printing as how it will potentially impact all types of industries in the not too distant future. Feel free to contact me at to see if your company would benefit from any of these or other technologies that you are planning for in 2017 or beyond.

Finally I’m including a few different views of how ZeroPoint3D actually did the scan of me (good thing they didn’t scan my brain, way too cluttered in there) and what the process looked like. Click on the links below and just make-believe that it’s Duane Johnson instead of me to hopefully give you a better looking view of 3D imaging. Thanks!

We are 1 week away from ITPalooza ( where we are gathering the best in Technology in South Florida to talk to our 2,000 attendees about where they see Tech moving to in the near and long-term future. Now is the time to register at to join us to ensure your seat at the biggest Tech Event that we have seen down here in some time plus registered attendees will also receive a chance to “Crack the Vault” and win a Tesla, besides being the coolest car design concept that we have ever seen but also the car that contains the top “Tech” on the road today.

ITPalooza has broken down the top tracks into discussion points featuring Cloud, Security, IoT and in today’s post, I’ll bring up Agile, which DirecLogix will be engaging with Red Hat at our booth in the Exhibit Hall. Agile (or Agility) is generally defined as “The Ability to Change” which if you look at today’s business world (of which Technology is helping drive an enormous amount of innovation) which is constantly evolving. While Agility is a trait that we would want to be very good at, Red Hat defines that term as “Adaptability” which defines the end-state of digital transformation and they consider the only true source of “sustainable” competitive advantage. This becomes a function of where utilizing Middleware will help organizations attain a competitive advantage and where Red Hat JBOSS BPM Suite can make a significant impact across your Lines of Business and many different functions that exists in most companies. Be sure to go to the bottom of this page and download the White Paper on Red Hat JBOSS to learn more.

We will have several different Red Hat Sales and Engineering resources at the DirecLogix booth in the Exhibit Hall at ITPalooza and we welcome you to visit us to see how we can help your organization in terms of Agility as well as Cloud, Virtualization, Storage, Open Source, Management and any other topic of interest to you.
