Sesame – smart lock that changes the world

Palo Alto, CA, March 27, 2015 — /EPR SOFTWARE NEWS/ — Sesame, the world’s first instant smart lock, raised more than seven times of its funding goal on Kickstarter. Launched on Kickstarter on Feb. 25, 2015, Sesame has raised more than $760,000 from backers all over the world.

The smart lock, which allows users to control their door with a smartphone app, attracted thousands.

Connected to users’ phone via Bluetooth, Sesame allows users full control of the lock, even to the exact angle a lock turns. With the optional Wi-Fi Access Point that connects Sesame to the Internet, users don’t even have to be physically near Sesame. The remote control feature allows people to send access to their friends and keep track of whether the door’s locked wherever they are.

With five-patented design, Sesame works with just about any deadbolt in the world. Users can install it in seconds, without replacing existing lock or removing anything. Current model is optimized for US/Canada/Singapore/Norway/Sweden Markets.

With market of Internet of Things (IoT) expanding rapidly, backers are turning more and more attention to smart gadgets that make their life easier. Founded by two students from Stanford University, CANDY HOUSE Inc. designs and manufactures products that inspire a minimal yet joyful lifestyle.

“People will carry less and less things when leave the house, that’s the trend,” said Jerming Gu, founder of Candy House.

Wallet, keys, and cell phone. People used to bring three things when they leave home. Now walltet is gradually replaced by keys. The Starbucks app pays your green tea frappuccino, you Venmo money to a friend for getting late-night pizza, you hop on a Uber without worrying about cab fare or tip.

“With Sesame, the next thing to disappear are the keys,” said Gu.

Athena Security Achieves OPSEC Certification from Check Point

Athena Security Inc., today announced that its Firewall Analysis solution, FirePAC, has achieved OPSEC™ (Open Platform for Security) certification from Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ: CHKP), the worldwide leader in securing the Internet. Through OPSEC certification, FirePAC supports Check Point’s Market-leading NG, NGX R65 and R70 based on the software blade architecture and delivers comprehensive analytics for maintaining always secure, always tuned and always compliant firewall infrastructure.

Athena Security Achieves OPSEC Certification from Check Point

FirePAC boosts the usability and security effectiveness of Check Point installations by delivering on these key requirements for network/security engineers:

Check Point Migration Support

• Dramatically accelerate the migration process from other vendors and ensure that the target policies are equivalent to the original. Athena FirePAC is the only solution that can analyze and compare the policies for behavioral differences and provide remedies for the errors introduced through the conversion process.

Comprehensive Risk Mitigation

• Identifies risks to critical hosts based on overly permissive rules or rules allowing dangerous services.

• Provides flexibility to define your own custom security zones and create new checks or modify existing checks to reflect unique business requirements.

• Takes into account what networks are reachable from each interface in the firewall based on ACLs, NATs, routing and anti-spoof settings to provide a more precise risk analysis.

Firewall Rule Cleanup and Optimization

• Finds every possible type of structural rule redundancy to find more rules for removal than any other product.

• FirePAC can also find all unused rules based on log history.

• Recommends optimal rule order that places the most used rules as far up as possible towards the top of the rule base without causing any disruptions to critical business services.

Rule/Object Search across your firewall inventory

• Finds all references to an object including parent and child relationships.

• Cuts through objects with multiple levels of membership hierarchies to pinpoint the services and addresses allowed or denied by a rule.

PCI Audit

• Produces automated PCI audit reports that go beyond a checklist for minimal compliance. FirePAC computes permitted traffic flows through the firewall to determine what is allowed to reach your credit cardholder data.

Athena’s Firewall Browser Was Introduced At SANS Orlando 2010 To Over 1100 Attendees

Athena Security announces the release of Firewall Browser, a free tool for searching Cisco, Check Point and Netscreen configurations that is powerful and flexible enough to support IT departments of all sizes and process requirements. Firewall browser is available as a free download with no limitations, user license restrictions or registration hurdles f r o m www.athenasecurity.net.

Athena's Firewall Browser Was Introduced At SANS Orlando 2010 To Over 1100 Attendees

Athena chose the SANS Orlando 2010 Conference to unveil the new free tool, and working with conference organizers, distributed Firewall Browser to over 1100 network and security engineers in attendance, an oversubscribed showing for one of the premier and most comprehensive security training conferences. Just within 24 hours of announcing the tool, an additional 480 engineers downloaded the product directly f r o m Athena’s website.

Firewall Browser offers capabilities that network/security engineers will want to consult every time a change request is made or whenever troubleshooting on firewalls becomes necessary. The tool immensely eases the challenges to determine if the change is already covered by other rules, understand the impact of modifying objects, identify how existing conventions can be reused to keep the configurations manageable, or the right location for adding the new rule so service availability is maintained to critical hosts.

Firewall Browser was developed in the spirit of other legendary free and open source network tools like Nessus or Snort, based on the value that functionally-rich non-commercial alternatives should exist for practitioners who need access to reliable solutions for real environments. By releasing the Firewall Browser for free, Athena is shifting dynamics away f r o m vendors and giving the power to users to pay only for solutions where they find even greater productivity gains, technology advancements and complimentary product offerings.

“We selected one of our most popular features to offer a free tool. This is not throw-away functionality, but rather significantly useful. We believe this is the right way to attract customers to the additional tools available f r o m Athena,” said Adarsh Arora, CEO of Athena Security.

About Athena Security
Athena offers infrastructure analysis tools that identify the precise relationship between firewall rules and network services in a single device or across a complex network.
