MetaFlows Introduces Breakthrough in TLS Traffic Inspection




Reading Time: 2 minutes

Passive TLS Interception Reduces CPU Burden, Improves Security and Safety

SAN DIEGO, June 13, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — MetaFlows, the technology leader in network security, today announced Passive TLS (Transparent Layer Security)1 Interception, a new approach to TLS traffic inspection that eliminates the issues inherent in traditional in-line solutions. MetaFlows is the first and only security software vendor offering this new technology.

TLS interception is a key feature that distinguishes market leaders of today’s network security appliances. It decrypts, inspects and re-encrypts network traffic so that it can be inspected for IDPS and access control functions. This functionality is today being achieved in-line (as traffic flows through an appliance or software daemon) using a man-in-the-middle scheme that transparently proxies the TLS connections. This function is challenging because it is very CPU-intensive (because it needs to perform public key cryptography in real time) and more importantly, it reduces security and safety.

Passive TLS interception is a new approach that will eliminate these challenges and does not require hardware, so it is well-suited for the increasingly important virtualization market. Significantly, MetaFlows’ new Passive TLS interception feature is not, in any way, technically related to the interception of the session keys used to decrypt the payloads (which still suffers from the problems mentioned above).

“Our customers asked us for a safer and more scalable alternative to in-line TLS inspection, so we invented Passive TLS interception,” said Livio Ricciulli, chief scientist at MetaFlows. “With Passive TLS interception, users can deploy it on any server or cloud instance and rests assured that they can spot any threat that lurks inside encrypted traffic.”

Passive TLS interception is available today from MetaFlows, and is currently supported on recent Linux distributions, Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016. Other OS variants will be supported in the future.

Chitosan Market Value To Reach Around US$ 22 Billion by 2026




Reading Time: 3 minutes

The global chitosan market value is poised to reach around USD 22 billion by 2026 and will grow at CAGR above 20.2 % over the forecast time frame 2019 to 2026

LOS ANGELES, June 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Acumen Research and Consulting, Recently Published Report on “Chitosan Market (By Application: Water Treatment, Food & Beverage, Cosmetics, Pharmaceutical & Biomedical, Others) – Global Industry Analysis, Market Size, Opportunities and Forecast, 2019 – 2026.”

Chitosan is a type of chitin that is the most important component in the marine animal exoskeleton. The marine shell waste, such as squid, shrimp, krill and crabs, is manufactured commercially. Chitosan is used in a wide range of end use sectors like food, chemicals, food, food and drug products, agriculture, cosmetics and more. However, water processing, bio-medicine, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, food & beverage are the main end-use sectors.

The market is driven by the increased range of applications in cosmetics, water therapy for impurity removal and the medical industries. In addition, increasing demand is driving the market growth of biofunded chemicals and fewer fresh water resources. Because of the favorable prospects of the pharmaceutical industry in the area North America is anticipated to be a market leader in the near future.

In conjunction with public initiatives, increased demand from the cosmetic sector and the widening implementation of wastewater treatment also drive development. The demand for chitosan for different apps is anticipated to grow in the next few years. In order to propel the product demand, increasing waste water treatment needs are expected to be addressed in sectors such as textiles, milk products, paper & pulp, metal cutting and chemical. As a consequence, the growing demand for products is likewise expected to increase market growth as a result of water treatment and the stringent rules on wastewater disposal.

View Detail Information with Complete TOC@

The chitosan industry’s key variables are the rich supply of raw materials and the evolving apps in different sections of end use. Continuing R&D operations centered on the search for new uses for chitosan and the development of current technologies are also anticipated to contribute to chitosan market development during the period under examination. Nevertheless, elevated manufacturing costs of chitosan and its derivatives as well as product inconsistency could hinder market growth owing to seasonal, regional and chemical changes.

Wastewater Treatment Applications Driving Demand

Some of the main driving forces for demand in the worldwide chitosan industry are unique and helpful characteristics of chitosan, extensive supply of raw products and increased understanding of its health advantages. On the other side, the chitosan market is hampered by stringent laws relating to the cultivation of shrimps, striking drawbacks in drug delivery systems and instability in certain other areas. As an additional opportunity in this industry, the analyst has expected the development of chitosan from non-aquatic sources.

Key Findings

Increasing demand and growing preferences for natural-derived products by pharmaceutics and cosmetics producers are anticipated to make North America the fastest-growing region. 

A CAGR of approximately 21 percent is expected to grow in Canada’s pharmaceutical industry in due course to increase R&D in tissue engineering applications in product.

Key Players & Strategies

FMC Corp., Qingdao Yunzhou Biochemistry Co., Golden Shell Pharmaceutical Co., Heppe Medical Chitosan GmbH Ltd., are some of the major businesses on the market. Major enterprises are faced with comparatively less national competition. However, over the forecast period, fast development of the Japanese and Chinese markets will hinder their development. In addition, the growing amount of market entrants is likely to intensify competitiveness over the forecast period, owing to an simple manufacturing method and increased product demand.

Manufacturers are more focused on lowering product costs while increasing output and quality to maintain and reinforce their industrial presence. Initiatives to develop the fishing sector in multiple nations like India are anticipated to increase the accessibility of raw materials. Current study by governments and private organisations in these areas should also promote the entry of fresh enterprises on the market and thus intensify competition between industries.

Lift & Co. cannabis experts are available to help media navigate new cannabis products and regulations coming to market




Reading Time: 4 minutes

The federal government just announced regulations allowing new cannabis products to come to market. Navigating what these new products may be and what the regulations mean for Canadian consumers can be challenging. Lift & Co., the company behind CannSell retail training, is here to help.  

TORONTO, June 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Lift & Co. Corp. (“Lift & Co.” or the “Company”) (TSXV: LIFT) (OTCQB: LFCOF) cannabis experts including our CEO Matei Olaru, VP Strategy Nick Pateras and CannSell experts are available for interview, comment or background to media covering the new cannabis products and the regulations announced today by the federal government.

“In terms of boosting the market, the legalization of these product formats could be even more significant than the initial phase of legalization,” says Nick Pateras, Vice President of Strategy for Lift & Co. “These new formats will be the catalyst for market acceleration and are paramount to effectively shifting demand into regulated channels.”

“These new cannabis products will bring a whole new consumer segment into the sector. Our recent partnered study on edibles indicates 1.5 million in new consumers in the first year,” said Matei Olaru, CEO for Lift & Co. “There is a land grab opportunity for brands to strategically position their edibles, extracts and topicals products in the second year of legalization. Lift & Co. continues to provide unique consumer data insights by aggregating data across our proprietary consumer database at and our budtender training platform CannSell.”

Consumers are likely to face challenges understanding what new formats are being introduced to the legal market as well as what new products they may see on shelves. Helping consumers understand these new product formats is challenging because there is variability in some of the naming conventions. For example, Lift & Co. staff found different terminology across different websites.

What’s it called?
Common name Flower / Bud Cannabis Oil* Edibles Beverages Capsules Concentrate (liquid) Concentrate (solid) Topicals Dried Flower Cannabis Oil Edible cannabis (solid) Edible cannabis (beverage) Cannabis Extract (injested) Cannabis Extract (inhaled) Cannabis Extract (THC concentrate) Cannabis Topicals
Cannabis Act Name
(Schedule 3)
Dried Cannabis Cannabis Oil Solid containing cannabis non-solids containing cannabis non-solids containing cannabis cannabis non-solid concentrates cannabis solid concentrates non-solids containing cannabis
OCS Product Category Dried Flower Cannabis Oil Edibles Beverages Capsules Concentrates Extracts Topicals
*  According to the Government of Canada’s “FINAL REGULATIONS FOR NEW CANNABIS PRODUCTS: EDIBLE CANNABIS, CANNABIS EXTRACTS AND CANNABIS TOPICALS,” Cannabis oil is scheduled to be discontinued as its own product format 12 months after legalization of other formats (October 17, 2020 if legalization is October 17, 2019)

For new cannabis consumers who may be trying dried flower and cannabis oil for the first time, understanding how these new product formats compare is difficult. Schedule 3 of the Cannabis Act lays out dried flower equivalents in terms of grams, which is what consumers need to know to calculate their personal public possession limits. The new regulations also set limits for licensed producers and manufacturers for the maximum amount of THC in each of these new product formats. The limits, and the way in which THC is presented on the label differ widely by format making it difficult to compare the amount of THC in a product.

It is important for consumers to understand that the method of consuming cannabis matters. Inhaling cannabis by smoking or vaping is different than consuming cannabis by eating or drinking it. When cannabis is eaten it is processed by the liver (not the lungs) and is converted into 11-Hydroxy-THC which can have effects on the brain that are up to 3-5 times stronger than regular THC1. This means that edibles can have stronger effects even at lower concentrations.

Expert commentary available

Lift & Co. CEO Matei Olaru and VP Strategy Nick Pateras are available for commentary on what these changes will mean for consumers and the cannabis industry (both in Canada and globally) and can speak to what new product formats we are likely to see.

For commentary on consumer trends and how marketers might position these new product formats our Chief Revenue Officer Jon Kamin is available.

Our CannSell retail training experts are also available for detailed retail and consumer awareness commentary.
