NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 02/04/13 -- SupersonicAds (www.supersonicads.com), the global leader in virtual currency monetization since 2009, announced today its U.S. expansion, opening offices in New York City and Los Angeles. These new outposts will be led by a key new sales hire, John McShea named as Eastern Sales Director and by current employee, Michael Brown, Head of Brand Sales, West Coast, respectively. Headquartered in London, SupersonicAds provides brands with premium access to social gaming audiences with cross-platform solutions enabling consumers the opportunity to earn virtual currency for free by completing targeted offers, watching branded video ads, and engaging with leading brands.
With offices already in Silicon Valley, SupersonicAds has invested significantly in expanding in North America and securing top talent over the past year. Under the leadership of Gil Shoham, who recently relocated to San Francisco in support of the expansion, the company has increased its workforce 100% in the last three years to drive cross-platform in-game advertising solutions, leading to remarkable year on year growth.
SupersonicAds CEO, Gil Shoham explains, "We have been working with U.S.-based advertisers like adidas, Dove, Kellogg's, Disney, and Coca-Cola for several years and so opening offices in New York and Los Angeles was a very natural move for us. We are now ideally situated to provide even better support to our existing U.S.-based clients and capitalize on new revenue opportunities, coast-to-coast and internationally."
With a focus on brand sales solutions in the U.S., McShea is leading SupersonicAds' East Coast expansion and will operate out of New York City. McShea joins from Tremor Video where he was Sales Director, and has held positions at ScanScout (acquired by Tremor Video), VideoEgg (currently Say Media) and BusinessWeek. He brings with him more than 20 years of experience in media and 10+ years management experience leading high-performance sales teams in extremely competitive markets.
Brown, an employee with SupersonicAds since 2010, will lead West Coast sales operations focused on developing the relationship between Facebook social game publishers and leading entertainment brands. Brown brings more than 17 years of media experience and has consulted on social gaming strategy for Fortune 500 brands such as Disney, Fox, Vodafone, Warner Bros, Hasbro, Intel and Coca Cola.
"SupersonicAds already reaches audiences in over 200 countries in Europe, Asia and Latin America with effective engagement solutions across desktop and mobile that other networks haven't tapped into. This means that for large U.S.-based brands, we offer a huge opportunity for extending global reach across both desktop and mobile. John and Michael will be instrumental in strengthening our already formidable sales structure across the U.S.," Shoham concluded.

Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of (at least) three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the back-end service, and the mobile application for the end user’s controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target –...

One of biggest questions about Big Data is “How do we harness all that information for business use quickly and effectively?” Geographic Information Systems (GIS) or spatial technology is about more than making maps, but adding critical context and meaning to data of all types, coming from all different channels – even sensors.

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
