MIND MEDIA Cooperates With Ubisoft To Develop Biofeedback Sensor Technology For Stress Reduction Games

Mind Media BV, the world number one in medical biofeedback and neurofeedback technology has today announced its cooperation with Ubisoft, a world leader in computer games. On June 14th, Ubisoft announced Innergy, a unique wellness game, at the E3 in Los Angeles, which will be available to players on the PC and Mac® in early 2011. The game uses the new Innergy Sensor, which is based on technology from the Mind Media NeXus-10 series of physiological monitoring and feedback systems.

MIND MEDIA Cooperates With Ubisoft To Develop Biofeedback Sensor Technology For Stress Reduction Games

The Innergy sensor measures heart rate, HRV, blood flow and pulse and provides real time biofeedback to the player showing how their body and nervous system responds to breathing exercises. This interactive and playful game increases cardiac coherence and relaxation and decreases levels of stress. In short, playing computer games can increase your health, wellness and inner balance. The Innergy computer game is extremely easy to use and has opened new dimensions for life science based “edutainment”.

Mr. Erwin Hartsuiker, CEO of Mind Media BV, explained: “When we introduced computer based NeuroBiofeedback training in 1992, almost nobody knew or understood what it was. Our vision remains that medical or neurophysiological equipment can be used for more than monitoring “disease”. Our NeXus Biofeedback and Neurofeedback systems enable researchers to study the interaction of mind and body and how thought and emotion affect our state of health, wellness and performance. In other words we can monitor the physiological effects of cognitive functioning, behaviour and stress.

Clinicians, psychologists and therapists use the NeXus systems for Biofeedback training to reduce tension headaches, migraine, stress related problems like high blood pressure, hyperventilation, anxiety and even early stages of depression. NeXus can also help with ADHD and learning disabilities as well as enhancing performance in sports and business. We see a clear trend in the market where people now think twice before they automatically reach for medication or pills as their first solution.

We are honoured that Ubisoft has chosen to cooperate with Mind Media in the development of this new and exciting Innergy Sensor technology. We think this will change the way people play computer games.

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.
