Accedian Launches Intent-Based Assurance to Drive Operational Efficiency
Skylight Platform's New Automated Assurance Capabilities Reduce Complexity, Save Money, and Accelerate Time to Market MONTREAL, Jan. 31, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Accedian, a leader in performance analytics and end-user experience solutions, today announced new intent-based assurance capabilities built into the Skylight platform. This innovation represents the next level of automated assurance, making Skylight the first platform to offer these capabilities on the market. Intent-based assurance provides the foundational visibility needed to drive intent-based networking and enable critical insights into network performance. One of the biggest challenges for communications service providers (CSPs) is the complexity of today's networks and the stack-upon-stack of legacy systems, domains, and silos that don't talk to one other. This isn't sustainable with dynamic 5G services that have stringent performance requirements, nor with disaggregated cloud-native networks. Intent-based networking has tended to focus on service activation: configuring and provisioning devices based on intent. Intent-based networking, orchestration, end-to-end assurance, and service visibility need to go hand-in-hand. With Skylight intent-based assurance, CSPs gain advantages, including: Direct visibility into service quality and user experience without the operational complexity of having to provision the behind-the-scenes details of assurance/testing. Increased intelligence in assurance - Skylight's intent-based assurance capability understands how the service should behave. It can understand when the service is having an issue - or may potentially have an issue in the future (predictive) - and immediately trigger the controller layer for closed-loop optimization or remediation. Accelerated time to market for new services - Intent-based assurance understands how to instrument the network to assure a service without manual intervention. Adding assurance to the network is easier to automate and deploy efficiently, helping to speed up time to market for new, performance-assured services. Cost savings - Proactively address issues and rapidly determine the root cause of performance degradations, reducing the operational cost of running increasingly complex networks. Kevin Wollenweber, SVP/GM, Cisco Networking - Data Center and Provider Connectivity, Cisco, said: "Ensuring consistent service quality requires more than simply knowing the status of equipment in the network. CSPs need visibility into end-to-end service quality, agility for assurance monitoring at the time of service deployment, and to move beyond simple SLA monitoring to predictive analytics. Our partnership with Accedian, adding Skylight's intent-based assurance to Cisco's Crosswork Network Automation portfolio, strengthens our joint efforts in helping CSPs to further elevate customer experience and drive efficiency in operations. Dion Joannou, Chief Executive Officer, Accedian, said: "Network complexity has accelerated beyond the manageability of manual intervention. Automation is no longer a luxury, but a necessity. It's a journey that takes open integration, standardization, and simplification work to get there. Intent-based assurance understands how the service should behave, and it can understand when the service is having an issue and inform the orchestration layer. This added intelligence will provide customers with the continuous visibility and feedback loop on service quality that they need." Roy Chua, Founder and Principal Analyst, AvidThink, said: "The exploding number of network elements and connections that require management and maintenance show no sign of abating. Because of this, network managers and operators urgently need to improve manageability and increase scalability even as they try to rein in expenditures. Intent-based assurance adds value to today's networks immediately." Headed to Cisco Live Amsterdam or Mobile World Congress Barcelona this year? Come say hello to the Accedian team and learn more.

Eventus introduces Validus AML (VAML), new end-to-end anti-money laundering solution to help exchanges, institutions combat financial crime
Innovative offering combines signals-based approach, rules-based logic and advanced data analytics with customizable technology for targeted, efficient results NEW YORK, Jan. 31, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Eventus, a leading global provider of multi-asset class trade surveillance and market risk solutions, today announced the broad introduction of Validus AML (VAML), a new end-to-end anti-money laundering (AML) platform aimed at helping firms combat financial crime. The new cloud-based Validus AML (VAML) offering uniquely combines a signals-based approach to behavior detection, rules-based logic and advanced data analytics to deliver a comprehensive solution producing significant efficiencies and adaptability for a changing regulatory landscape. The product introduction represents Eventus' first major expansion into a new sector of surveillance, complementing its widely used Validus platform for trade surveillance, risk monitoring and algorithmic monitoring. While Validus has always provided transaction monitoring capabilities as part of trade surveillance, VAML will offer a full spectrum of powerful detection, workflow and case management tools for current and new clients, enabling them to reduce financial and regulatory risk, identify a range of illicit financial behaviors and further streamline their use of external vendors on critical compliance functions. Enhancements to functionality will be rolled out in phases throughout the course of the year. Eventus CEO Travis Schwab said: "Firms operating in financial markets are facing greater challenges than ever to protect themselves from those presenting a risk to their businesses and reputations, along with their standing with government regulators. Validus AML reimagines what an anti-money laundering program can do, reflecting a paradigm shift from traditional alert-focused solutions and taking the burden off compliance teams. We're excited to introduce our flexible new solution, offering the ability to easily adapt to increasingly complex local, regional and global AML regulatory requirements and to keep pace with evolving business risk across geographies, business lines and client profiles." VAML is a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution combining transaction monitoring, behavioral analytics and sanctions monitoring in a single, scalable and easily configurable platform that enables users to reduce the risk of fines and reputational damage while saving time and resources, focusing on only genuinely suspicious activity. Traditional AML platforms generate an alert for each suspicious event, which requires regulatory and compliance staff to stitch them together for a complete picture of activity from any given customer or entity. VAML's signals-based technology and flexible approach to AML behavior modeling facilitates the aggregation of multiple events into a single "scenario model," dramatically reducing false-positive alerts and producing highly effective, targeted results. VAML also maintains a customer activity profile based on historical client behaviors and transactions, with the ability to generate signals when customer activity deviates from historical patterns, contributing to the sophistication of the scenario models. Clients will be able to onboard almost any source of customer transaction and trade data from their own systems and third-party providers – along with continuously updated government watchlists – in a "low-touch" fashion through the modular new platform, with out-of-the box connectivity to the Validus trade surveillance platform. VAML gives clients a visual data layer to extract, transform and load any type of data which, when combined with the client data, enriches Know Your Customer (KYC), customer lifecycle and ongoing transaction monitoring activities. About Eventus Eventus is a leading global provider of multi-asset class trade surveillance and market risk solutions. Its powerful, award-winning Validus platform is easy to deploy, customize and operate across equities, options, futures, foreign exchange (FX), fixed income and other markets. Validus is proven in the most complex, high-volume and real-time environments of tier-1 banks, broker-dealers, futures commission merchants (FCMs), proprietary trading groups, market centers, buy-side institutions, energy and commodity trading firms, and regulators. The company's rapidly growing client base relies on Validus and Eventus' responsive support and product development teams to overcome its most pressing regulatory challenges.

An industry-redefining product based on cutting-edge machine-learning technology empowers organizations to combat cyberattacks, further strengthening SecPod's mission of preventing cyberattacks. REDWOOD CITY, Calif. and BENGALURU, India, Jan. 31, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- SecPod Technologies, a global leader in the next-generation vulnerability management marketplace, has launched SanerNow Continuous Posture Anomaly Management (CPAM), an innovative cybersecurity product that allows CISOs and security administrators to deep-learn their IT environment and manages outliers and anomalies.

MONEYME gets ahead on profitability; Delivers >$8m NPAT and record revenue for 1H23
SYDNEY, Jan. 31, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Digital lender and non-bank challenger MONEYME (ASX:MME) has returned to statutory profits ahead of target, delivering a record >$8m in net profit after tax (NPAT) and record revenue of >$117m for the first half of FY23 (up >143% pcp) beating analysts' expectations. MONEYME CEO & Managing Director Clayton Howes Gaining momentum, MONEYME reported greater than $60 million in gross revenue for the quarter in its 2Q23 trading update, reflecting year-on-year revenue growth of more than 140 percent. The strong revenue flows are expected to continue as the full benefit of 4x'ing the loan book in FY22 is realised. As a result, MONEYME has increased its full-year gross revenue target from >$200m to >$220m. MONEYME announced its shift in focus to statutory profits at the beginning of FY23, following two consecutive years of high growth and statutory losses in FY21 and FY22. The return to a positive NPAT result in 1H23 was accelerated by a swift execution of MONEYME's strategy to moderate growth, maintain its margins in a rising interest rate environment, and deliver cost synergies from the SocietyOne acquisition. Core operating expenses to the loan book reduced to less than 3% in the second quarter (down from 11% in 2Q22, and 5% in 1Q23). The improvement in cost efficiency is driven by economies of scale from high organic and inorganic growth in FY22 and the realisation of substantial cost synergies from migrating SocietyOne's technology onto MONEYME's proprietary technology platform, Horizon. While MONEYME's loan book has remained relatively steady in line with its moderated growth strategy, sitting at $1.24 billion at the end of the first half, the credit profile of the book has continued to improve. The Group's focus on managing credit risk and originating higher credit quality assets has increased the book's average Equifax score to 714 at the end of the first half, up from 704 at the end of FY22 and 672 in 1H22. MONEYME's blockbuster car finance product, Autopay continues to drive a shift to secured assets. Secured assets as a percentage of the book increased to 41 percent at the end of the first half, up from 38 percent at the end of FY22. Clayton Howes, CEO & Managing Director of MONEYME said: "We are pleased to announce statutory profits and record revenue in the first half, beating analyst expectations. Building from strong results in the first quarter, the momentum continued into the second quarter and has seen us upgrading our outlook on revenue and profit for the full year. Our return to statutory profitability after a prolonged period of high growth is not only a result of a shift in near-term business strategy in response to the macro environment, it is also a continuation of our commitment to drive profitable growth and a testament to the quality and proficiency of our team. We are proud of the agility and adaptability that MONEYME has demonstrated in navigating rising interest rates and we are ready to take advantage of the market opportunity in car financing and the potential tailwinds from changing BNPL regulation. With SocietyOne successfully integrated into the business, we are looking forward to solidifying our position as a leading non-bank challenger. It is also pleasing to note the business is progressing this agenda alongside the delivery of strong ESG outcomes that I expect to be reflected in B-Corp certification in due course."

DB HiTek Expands High Value-Added Specialized Sensor
Targeting volume production of Global Shutter & SPAD within the year, Korean specialty foundry DB HiTek accelerates its entry into new high growth area i.e. industrial machine vision, autonomous car, AR SEOUL, South Korea, Jan. 31, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- DB HiTek starts to expand high value-added specialized image sensor business with the foundry process technology specialized for global shutter and SPAD (Single Photon Avalanche Diode) which is in attention in various industries including automobile, robot and others. Based on the secured process technology, it plans to improve the profitability by expanding into new high growth areas such as industrial machine vision, autonomous car, and AR (Augmented Reality). Global shutter is a sensor which captures images of fast-moving subjects without distortion, and it is actively applied to machine vision (a technology that enables a computing device to inspect, evaluate and identify still or moving images) that recently focuses attention as an 'eye of smart factory', plus, its applied scope is spreading rapidly to robots, drones and automobiles. The specialty of DB HiTek's global shutter is that it has the advanced technology of 99.997% (less than 1/10,000 for noise occurrence) of GSE (Global Shutter Efficiency) by preventing optical signal distortion by applying the light shield and light guide technologies. It can realize the pixel size of 2.8 micrometers in minimum. Furthermore, SPAD is a supersensitive 3D image sensor which detects weak light signals at the photon (particles of light) level, and is a core part installed in the LiDAR (Light Detection And Ranging) of autonomous cars based on its advantage of high precision and long distance measurement availability. Recently, it is applied rapidly by supporting AR functions on premium smartphones, and its role would be widely expanded to the new generation of application areas including robots and drones in the future. LiDAR, also known as ToF (Time of Flight) sensor, is a high precision part which shoots the laser (light) to grasp a distance between objects and forms by measuring the returning time of the laser after hitting the object. Meanwhile, in accordance with the market researcher, Markets and Markets, LiDAR market is forecasted to continue its high growth of 22% in annual average with USD3.4 billion in 2026 from USD1.3 billion in 2021. DB HiTek's SPAD process had secured the function to detect photon in probabilities of 3.2% from FSI (Front Side Illumination) and 7% from BSI (Back Side Illumination) based on the wavelength of 940nm. In addition, it plans to have the best competitiveness in the industry by raising the photon detection probability to 15% with the process of BDTI (Backside Deep Trench Isolation, minimizes light loss and realizes improvements in optical performance through the formation of insulation part between pixels) in the future.
