TORONTO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 06/10/08 -- Phantom Fiber Corporation (OTCBB: PHFB) today announced a multi-year contract with MyMedicalRecords.com.au to deliver an integrated mobile solution for their Personal Health Records system. The terms of the contract specify Phantom Fiber is to receive a one-time facilitation fee, as well as ongoing revenue sharing upon implementation of the platform.
The deployment will target the Australian and New Zealand markets. The integration will provide MyMedicalRecords.com.au clients with access, through their mobile device, to all of the functionality they have come to expect from the Internet offering. The seamless integration to mobile will allow clients 24/7 emergency access to medical information at their fingertips, such as medical history, emergency contacts, insurance and prescriptions. The mobile extension will operate on over a 1000 devices including Java phones, Blackberry, Palm, Microsoft PocketPC and Smartphone based handheld devices from anywhere in the world and support multiple languages.
Russell Armstrong, Founder of MyMedicalRecords.com.au, stated, "Internally we knew mobile access was a critical piece to a successful personal health record application. However, as we first launched the development of MyMedicalRecords.com.au we felt the mobile market was still not mature enough to support the speed, security and functionality demands we desired in a mobile offering. Once we were introduced to Phantom Fiber and the performance, portability and most importantly the security inherent to their offering, we immediately realized we could now move forward into the mobile market at an accelerated rate. The mobile solution which will integrate directly into our secure personal health record platform is the next generation of technology that will deliver cutting edge convenience for our clients. After reviewing a number of mobile providers, we could not be more pleased with our choice of Phantom Fiber."
Jeff Halloran, Chairman & CEO of Phantom Fiber, stated, "Being awarded this contract is significant to Phantom Fiber Corporation for a number of reasons. First and foremost we made a strategic corporate decision to demonstrate the breadth of our platform by securing key clients in markets outside of the gaming and entertainment sector where we are recognized as a leader. The healthcare sector along with the successful penetration of the financial sector certainly proves the versatility and confidence our clients have in our product. Equally as important is how well our two organizations complement each other. The key component to a Personal Health Record is always having access to your family's complete health record in a secure central location. Now whether on vacation, while travelling or should a medically related call pertaining to a family member be received, your critical health information is at your fingertips at all times. We couldn't be happier partnering with a recognized leader in this emerging PHR market."

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...

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate.

Unsecured IoT devices were used to launch crippling DDOS attacks in October 2016, targeting services such as Twitter, Spotify, and GitHub. Subsequent testimony to Congress about potential attacks on office buildings, schools, and hospitals raised the possibility for the IoT to harm and even kill people. What should be done? Does the government need to intervene? This panel at @ThingExpo New York brings together leading IoT and security experts to discuss this very serious topic.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
