WebFitness, a US-based online fitness company, has launched online interactive live fitness classes. The classes will allow people who may not be able to go to a gym, to become fit from their home or hotel room. A LIVE certified trainer leads WebFitness’ interactive group sessions, who monitors each class member to make sure that he or she is doing the exercises properly.

Members will have to use a webcam, microphone and high-speed internet to attend classes. The course is especially useful for busy parents and people whose work schedules or travel conflicts prevent them from regularly going to a gym.

The main features of the course are the following:

  • Variety of different types of fitness classes.
  • Ability to track progress towards fitness and dietary goals.
  • Customised dietary advice for each member.
  • Classes at times that are accessible to people who are in different time zones.

WebFitness also offers diet and nutrition caching and monitoring. Members use the WebFitness app to snap a picture of their meals and snacks with a simple click. WebFitness’ dietitian reviews meal choices and gives specific dietary advice. Members are seeing positive results because WebFitness targets both exercise and diet.

SuperCom Ltd. has secured a contract with the national government of Estonia to deploy its Pure Security Electronic Monitoring (EM) Suite with an emphasis on house arrest. This project was formally awarded in November 2018 through a formal bid process.

This nationwide programme with the country’s Ministry of Justice will cover all cases requiring house arrest within the country, with a simultaneous unit count starting at 200 and an option to grow up to 400. The project will be billed at a per-unit daily rate and generate steady-state recurring revenues accordingly. The total duration of the contract is up to 4.5 years.

“We are pleased to begin work on this contract award,” said company President and CEO Arie Trabelsi. “As in many of our previous awards, we competed against other providers for this business and displaced the incumbent EM vendor who had been in place for the past 10 years in this country. We expect to begin generating recurring revenues from this new business within a few months of today’s announcement, and we look forward to seeing additional wins around the globe as more and more countries shift to a more modernised approach to alternatives to incarceration such as our EM offerings”, he added.

Survey shows use of cyber threat intelligence evolving

The 2019 CTI survey has shown that the use of cyber threat intelligence (CTI) is evolving. The results of the survey will be released by SANS Institute in a two-part webcast on February 5 and February 7.

“This year’s survey saw an increase in usage and interest in CTI, along with a diversification in how the intelligence is being used by organisations,” says SANS Analyst and threat intelligence expert Rebekah Brown. “While the use of CTI continues to grow, there is no one-size-fits-all approach. Organisations leverage different types of CTI to meet different needs.”

CTI is a resource for network defense at a majority of survey respondents’ organisations, with 72 per cent either consuming or producing it. Perhaps more importantly, only 8 per cent reported having no plans to begin using intelligence. Top use cases include security operations, detecting threats and attacks, blocking threats and security awareness. A diversification in use cases for CTI, along with a better understanding of how it is used to benefit an organisation’s security posture, means that CTI is being more widely utilised by both large and small organisations.

Although more are using CTI, organisations are not defining requirements for the CTI programmes in any organised manner. Just 30 per cent have documented their requirements, while 37 per cent has ad hoc requirements, leaving 33 per cent without defined requirements for their efforts.

“Arguably the most important part of the CTI process is identifying and defining good requirements to guide the entire intelligence life cycle and make the collection, analysis, processing and dissemination of intelligence much more focused,” adds Robert M. Lee, SANS analyst and threat intelligence expert. “Requirements enable organisations to properly operationalise intelligence work. That makes it all the more alarming, that so few have invested the time in defining their focus.”
