Karsof Systems, global supplier of end-to-end security solutions, signs on as sponsor of GSN’s 2010 awards program
All of us at Government Security News are very pleased to announce that Karsof Systems LLC, of Los Angeles, CA, has signed on as a major sponsor of the GSN 2010 Homeland Security Awards Program.
Karsof Systems was founded in the Asia-Pacific region in 1999 by three scientists with a shared passion for technological innovation in the realm of security solutions and information security/management. The company quickly developed into a global leader in the areas of biometric security, criminal forensics, security document manufacturing and printing, IT intrusion prevention, and business continuity.
Karsof Systems holds nine global patents, with 28 patents pending. Its solutions leverage the Karsof Systems LLC Network, which employs the very latest in data security technologies including 4096-bit dynamic, multi-layered encryption -- the highest available today.
The company’s clients around the globe include government agencies, corporations and economic blocs. In addition, forums such as the Asian-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) have designated Karsof Systems’ biometric technology as a standard for its 21 member countries. Karsof Systems’ leadership team has also received many awards, including Ernst & Young’s Entrepreneur of the Year Award in 2008 (given to Dr. Lalitha Kaleedhass, the company’s managing director).
Speaking for the staff and management of Government Security News, I’d like to say we are greatly honored to welcome Karsof Systems LLC to the exceptional roster of sponsors for our 2010 Homeland Security Awards Program. We are similarly honored to have been selected by Karsof Systems LLC as a media partner to assist in launching the highly respected Karsof Systems LLC brand in the U.S. A review of the company’s core technologies quickly reveals that this is a world-class, total solutions provider.
In the field of biometric security, for example, the unique algorithms governing the biometrics engine are non-threshold based. As Jeff Rosen, vice president of sales, puts it, “Field agents receive a half-second round-trip response against billions of records, with 100 percent match, no false positives, and the lowest possible number of false negatives. Authentication and identification against one or more databases occurs in near real-time.”
Barney Villa, senior vice president, also points out that Karsof Systems is not entering the U.S. market with a “rip and replace” strategy. “Our company recognizes that there exists a great deal of legacy infrastructure and investment in both the public and private sector,” says Villa. “Therefore, all Karsof Systems LLC solutions are customized and designed to fit into existing architectures and enhance them via cutting edge technologies. Ultimately we are a global end-to-end security solutions provider whose goal it is to transfer knowledge and solution ownership to our clients.”
Well put, Mr. Villa. We’ll see you at the awards dinner at the JP Marriott Hotel, in Washington, DC, on the evening of November 8, 2010.
