Aino Health AB (publ) has published its Interim Report for the first quarter, 1 January - 31 March 2017 today. It is available on the Aino Health website, see also attached pdf-document. - Consolidated costs for product development and internationalisation have been booked as expenses during the period. - The Finnish subsidiary accounted for the Aino Group's entire reported turnover during the period. - Comparative figures for the corresponding period in 2016 are not available because the Company was founded on 19 May 2016. - Consolidated net turnover amounted to SEK 4,715 K. Other operating income was SEK 0 K. - Consolidated profit/loss after financial items amounted to SEK -5,421 K. The loss was mainly attributable to the recruitment of key personnel and preparations for international expansion. These expenses for international expansion relate to business development costs focusing on acquiring customers and suppliers for Aino's concept in Germany and Sweden. Aino collaborates with partners that have good contacts and local knowledge, especially in the German market. 2017 has begun just as well as I hoped. Our strategy and plan for the year is well-defined and clear. First, we will build our organisation in Sweden and Germany, launch the Company in our new markets, win business and then expand. Simultaneously, we will continue to deliver a positive result in Finland. Step one in our strategy has been to build a strong organisation, for which it is crucial to find good Country Managers. And we have done that. In Sweden, we have appointed Charlotte Boij as CEO of Aino Health Sweden AB. Charlotte has extensive experience from leading positions in the insurance industry, including CEO of Ikano Insurance, Nordic reinsurance director at Trygg-Hansa/Codan/RSA and CEO of Länsförsäkringar International. In Germany, we have hired Peter Seeger as Country Manager. His official first day at Aino Health will be 1 June, but his appointment was already announced on 9 May in Stuttgart in conjunction with the public launch of Aino at this year's largest Corporate Health event. Peter has a highly successful background with 20 years of experience from various IT and consulting companies such as CSC, Accenture, Capgemini and Hewlett Packard where he was responsible for sales and held different management functions. As I mentioned in the Annual Report, I have put all my time in 2017 into conducting sales meetings in Germany and Sweden and I feel we are close to reaching the tipping point whereby we at Aino Health become so business critical that organisations begin to seek help from us. For example, companies or public organisations with over 1,000 employees or partners. The focus, in addition to meeting major industrial customers in both markets and developing our partnership strategy, has been to package our experience of working with outcome-based contracts for introduction to Sweden's 290 municipalities and county councils. At Aino Health, we support the model of contributing to, and receiving payment for, delivering better human outcomes and results in terms of the costs to society, and we hope and believe that our experience from similar contracts will lead to business for us in Sweden. The reason I'm optimistic is that the digital business support delivered by Aino Health solutions and IT systems provides municipalities and county councils with the necessary overall understanding to more easily develop strategies for increasing health-promotion in the workplace. This can involve faster identification of operations with risks, recommending and coordinating support from internal and external actors - but primarily to reduce costs related to short-term sickness absence. Whether we speak with Sweden's municipalities and county councils, direct customers or partners, we know that through the help of Aino Health's products and services, each organisation will gain an overall understanding of the severity and distribution of sickness absence in different units as well as the causes. Our analysis and decision support system allows managers of all levels, especially at the highest level of management, to manage sickness absence where it is to be managed - at its cause. A clear example of this type of contract is the one we signed with Kunnan Taitoa, the leading provider of financial, purchasing and HR services to the public sector in Finland with nearly 200 customers. Their mission is to raise the quality of their customers' decision-making through effective financial solutions and processes for human resources departments. The collaboration has already resulted in two important and strategic orders with Finnish municipalities. Now I have achieved part one of our strategy for the year. I have a good management team and three incredibly good Country Managers in Charlotte Boij (Sweden), Peter Seeger (Germany) and Markku Pitkänen (Finland). The pilot project we conducted with Kunnan Taitoa has resulted in new business, our arrangment for Swedish municipalities and county councils have received a positive response, as well as our proposals to create strategic partnerships especially with insurance companies - so we are building a healthy pipeline of potential business with both companies and partners. In Q2, we will conduct our official launches of Aino Health in Sweden and Germany (as I described above), continue to build a strong organisation and focus fully on winning new business in our markets. Our strategy still feels very right and timely. This information is such information that Aino Health AB (publ) is obliged to make public pursuant to the EU Market Abuse Regulation.

Employers in the UK are struggling to fill vacancies after the sharpest drop for more than a year in the number of available candidates, according to a report that points to more recruitment difficulties ahead once Brexit bites. Even before the potential restrictions on immigrants once the UK leaves the EU, firms are reporting skills shortages across a range of more than 60 roles, including engineers, IT specialists, care workers and accountants. The Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) said its latest monthly snapshot of the jobs market found vacancies continued to rise in April for permanent and temporary staff, albeit at a softer pace than in March, reaching their weakest levels for 16 months. The REC chief executive, Kevin Green, said the continued evidence of skills shortages put the onus on the government formed after June’s election to invest in training and career advice and to ensure employers would still be able to access workers from abroad once the UK left the EU. “Demand for staff is growing within all sectors and all regions of the UK, but there are fewer and fewer people available to fill the vacancies,” Green said. “We have the lowest unemployment rate since 2005 and people already in work are becoming more hesitant about moving jobs amid Brexit uncertainty. Meanwhile, the weakening pound and lack of clarity about future immigration rules is putting off some EU nationals from taking up roles in the UK.” The report was compiled for REC by the consultancy IHS Markit using data from a panel of 400 recruitment firms. It showed demand for staff rose sharply across the private sector in April, but declined across the public sector. There was a slowdown in the number of people placed into permanent roles but a pick-up in those getting temporary or contract roles. The pace of expansion for temporary placements was the fastest since December. The signs of rising demand for temporary staff will fan fears about economic insecurity for UK workers as many find themselves struggling to make ends meet because they are on zero-hours contracts or taking work on a self-employed basis with no access to holiday or sick pay. In response to such worries, Theresa May last year commissioned a review of modern employment from Matthew Taylor, the head of the Royal Society of Arts (RSA). Taylor, the former head of Tony Blair’s policy unit, is due to publish his report in the summer but will provide a flavour of his findings in a speech on Tuesday. At his annual RSA lecture, he will call on policymakers and employers to make all work “good work” – which he defines as “fair and decent, with scope for development and fulfilment”. He will say: “Over recent decades, government work policy has focused primarily on getting people into jobs with, as current record employment levels attest, considerable success. Yet persistent scandals of bad working conditions, poor legal safeguards and job insecurity suggest that bad work is all too common. We need, therefore, to talk about quality of work and not just quantity.”

"Companies need to be confident that they can gain complete visibility into public infrastructure security to verify security policies, investigate incidents, or ensure full compliance in a cloud environment," said Varun Badhwar, CEO and co-founder of RedLock. "This is a true business imperative and our singular mission at RedLock: to help customers achieve their cloud infrastructure security goals and serve as the catalyst for digital business advancement." Cloud service providers are working with their ecosystems to help address customer security needs. "AWS allows customers to scale and innovate, while maintaining a secure environment," said Stephen Schmidt, Vice President, Security Engineering & Chief Information Security Officer at Amazon Web Services. "We are committed to empowering our customers with the right tools to achieve their cloud security objectives, and AWS Partner Network Technology Partners like RedLock play a major role. Our customers want solutions that effectively leverage the security features of AWS to provide holistic visibility into their risk postures, which RedLock provides." The RedLock Cloud 360 platform enhances cloud infrastructure security with a series of technological advances designed to take on these challenges. These include: RedLock is not entering the market with great technology alone. While having the characteristics of a disruptive startup, the company is also building on the stability that comes from venture capital support, and an early customer base. The company has already raised $12 million in funding from Sierra Ventures, which has built a 30-year track record of nurturing early-stage ventures into market leaders and successes include security leader Sourcefire (acquired by Cisco for $2.7B); Storm Ventures, which has a 20-year record of 100% focus on early-stage enterprise investments and successes include EchoSign (acquired by Adobe) and Marketo (acquired by Vista); Dell Technologies Capital, which came out of stealth earlier this week highlighting investments in more than 70 early-stage startups and nearly 30 exits, including Arista and Nutanix ; and other high-profile investors. "Our goal has always been to support innovative startups that can maintain the right balance between innovation and market need, and RedLock clearly meets that high standard," said Mark Fernandes, Managing Director at Sierra Ventures. "The cloud technology market has seen tremendous excitement and backing over the past few years, but we believe we're still a long way from realizing its true potential. A holistic cloud-native approach that breaks down silos is crucial for the benefits to be fully realized. We believe RedLock has a major role to play in that transformation, and this has been validated by our CXO Advisory Board of more than 70 Fortune 1000 technology executives." While RedLock is only coming out of stealth mode and making its public debut now, the company has been quietly making its presence felt. It already counts market leaders such as Proofpoint as a client, and was named as a finalist for 'Most Innovative Startup' at the Innovation Sandbox Competition at RSA 2017. "Dell Technologies Capital understands the unique challenges and needs of young companies poised to make their mark. We are pleased to be an early investor in RedLock and excited by the transformational work they are doing in cybersecurity," said Deepak Jeevankumar, Managing Director at Dell Technologies Capital. "As organizations embrace hybrid cloud computing, security and compliance across their public cloud footprint becomes critical. RedLock provides organizations with much needed risk visibility and control across multiple cloud service providers in a single pane of glass. We look forward to using our extensive technical, business and go-to-market capabilities to help RedLock rapidly develop and deploy their innovative solutions." Traditional security solutions are often geared towards largely static on-premise environments rather than dynamically changing cloud environments. Many legacy tools rely on defining rigid policies based on fixed IP addresses. However, IP-based policies cannot be applied since cloud workloads are ephemeral and their IP addresses can change dynamically. Moreover, agent or proxy-based solutions need to be deployed inline with traffic which will not work with API-driven services such as Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS), Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), and Elastic Load Balancing. None of this is truly compatible with a cloud environment that is continuously changing. On a related front, the numerous point solutions implemented in most on-premise environments over time to secure the network create siloed views into configuration data, user activity, network traffic, and threat intelligence data. To get a true picture of risk within an organization's cloud infrastructure environment, holistic visibility is imperative. In contrast, RedLock's Cloud 360 platform provides a comprehensive cloud-native approach. It connects the dots between configurations, user activity, network traffic, and threat intelligence data which makes it easier to accurately assess risk within the public cloud infrastructure environment. The platform's API-based approach ensures that DevOps is unimpeded and complete visibility across all workloads is achieved. The solution is automated so that the right level of security is applied and adjusted as existing workloads change and new ones are instantiated. Here's a different way to understand the need for a dynamic approach. In many organizations, software is now delivered on a weekly (or even daily) basis. RedLock's own research suggests that the average lifespan of a workload is only 127 minutes, and one customer, a leading cloud provider, creates and destroys 10,000 cloud workloads per day. To keep pace with such dynamic conditions, security teams require tools to implement adequate security and compliance measures. It is a challenging issue, and the RedLock Cloud 360 platform was designed specifically to tackle these problems. Despite its sophisticated architecture, the platform can be implemented within minutes by connecting to public cloud environments via 50-plus APIs, without impeding DevOps. It ingests massive volumes of raw, siloed data from the environment and produces concise, actionable insights in a five-step process: The RedLock Cloud 360 platform is generally available. Pricing is subscription-based and depends on the number of workloads deployed within an organization's public cloud infrastructure environment. About RedLock (www.redlock.io) RedLock enables organizations to accelerate digital business by managing security and compliance risks within their public cloud infrastructure without impeding DevOps. We provide security teams with the most comprehensive view of their environment, across multiple public cloud service providers, and down to every component within them. The RedLock Cloud 360™ platform enables automated monitoring, anomaly detection, cloud forensics, adaptive response, and compliance reporting, all to deliver unparalleled true cloud infrastructure security. Global brands across a variety of verticals trust RedLock to secure their public cloud infrastructure. The company is backed by Sierra Ventures, Storm Ventures, Dell Technologies Capital, and other high profile investors. RedLock was a finalist amongst hundreds of startups for the coveted title of Most Innovative Startup at RSA 2017 in San Francisco. — Ray Espinoza, former Head of Global Security at Proofpoint "We were able to deploy RedLock in minutes without disrupting DevOps and immediately gained visibility into risks across our entire AWS footprint in a single view." — David Tsao, Global Information Security Officer (CISO) at Veeva Systems "Our cloud-based business model has been a huge factor in our success. To enable customer success, we take pride in ensuring the highest levels of compliance of our platform with industry regulations. This requires us to continuously audit the public cloud infrastructure that we use to host our applications, and provide rapid feedback to our internal teams. The RedLock Cloud 360 platform provides Veeva with the tools it needs to continuously monitor our environment, quickly identify and respond to issues, and provide improved visibility on its compliance posture." — Bala Sathiamurthy, Head of Security at NerdWallet "To protect our customers' data, we make it a priority to secure the underlying public cloud infrastructure," said Bala Sathiamurthy, Head of Security at NerdWallet. "We need to continuously monitor the infrastructure as well as ensure real-time visibility into risks, and RedLock enables us to do just this without impeding our agile development processes." — Michael Osterman, President at Osterman Research Inc. "Organizations are creating and destroying cloud workloads at a quicker pace every day, which is making public cloud infrastructure increasingly difficult to protect. Add to this the fact that many companies don't have a good handle on security for their cloud environments, and you end up with a scenario ripe for disaster. A new breed of cloud security that can keep up with this rate of change and also get organizations securing their public cloud infrastructure instantly is sorely needed. RedLock is stepping in with an impressive solution that's purpose-built for dynamic cloud environments that change by the minute. Moreover, its integration with threat intelligence data sources ensures that organizations are protected in real-time against the latest public cloud threats and vulnerabilities." — Christian Christiansen, Senior Consultant with Hurwitz & Associates "There may be no area of technology more hyped and more scrutinized than public cloud computing, and it's easy to see why. According to RedLock, 'The average cloud workload exist for 127 minutes' and 'A leading cloud provider creates and destroys 10,000 workloads per day.' This is an unforeseen and extraordinary rate of change and sharply alters many aspects of DevOps and SecOps. But despite cloud computing's promise of digital transformation, many IT organizations still haven't internalized the message that public cloud infrastructure is fundamentally different from its on-premise predecessor (e.g., rules, processes and threats). Manual processes and complex decision-making need streamlining. Automation becomes mandatory to find and prioritize risk across an organization's public cloud infrastructure. This enables security teams to focus on the highest rated risks. Overall, RedLock offers the potential to greatly reduce the time it takes to perform cloud discovery, anomaly detection and forensics due to its holistic visibility." — Daniel Kirsch, Principal Analyst, Hurwitz & Associates "We at Hurwitz & Associates have seen many companies adopting multi-cloud and hybrid cloud environments. A Multi-cloud environment gives organizations the flexibility that they need to meet SLA, cost, governance and regulatory requirements. However, many organizations have developed new cloud instances with little oversight from IT security teams. Many enterprise security teams are struggling to find the right balance between giving developers and other teams the freedom to choose the tools and environments they wish while also ensuring security protocols are met. Having each new cloud environment separately managed by a security team is not a process that can scale and will surely result in security gaps. Security organizations are searching for tools and platforms that can help them manage a variety of cloud environments through a single view. RedLock's approach to secure workloads across multiple public cloud providers will help security organizations quickly understand their risk through a single visual environment." — Andrew Kellet, Principal Analyst with Ovum "As organisations continue to embrace public cloud computing, security and compliance strategies must adapt to address the dynamic nature of the cloud. The RedLock approach helps security teams by delivering much needed visibility and control over public cloud infrastructure. It offers the ability to detect anomalies, monitor configurations and activities, investigate incidents, and audit for compliance, enabling security teams to gain a comprehensive view of risk across their environment. DevOps and the rise of the cloud have blurred the lines of accountability over security, and with various lines of business adopting public cloud services, key elements of security have been left under protected. RedLock is looking to provide a level of visibility and control that is currently missing in many public cloud environments." — Mike Matchett, Senior Analyst and Consultant with Taneja Group "Looking at the landscape, it's amazing how many business processes have improved drastically with a move to public cloud computing, and yet many more simply haven't been able to keep up. Large technology shifts don't occur in a vacuum—basic business processes must adapt to those changes for the benefits to be realized, and this still hasn't been possible for most opportunities because of cloud security concerns." He continued, "When technology changes come so frequently and so fast, even a small gap can quickly become a chasm. That's what we're seeing now between the wider adoption of public cloud infrastructure and the full security that organizations need to maintain. The ability to secure all business applications across multiple public cloud providers is becoming essential, and RedLock is leading the way in helping organizations secure workloads both in the cloud and across clouds. We can recommend that organizations just try it out—RedLock's ability to immediately help organizations visualize their risk posture across the public cloud environment is something we haven't seen before." — Bob Tarzey, Analyst and Director, Quocirca "The growing use of public cloud infrastructure has changed the way business processes are supported both within and between organisations. A major benefit is more flexible and dynamic access to IT resources, however, a potential downside is less visibility and reduced security through the frequent changes to applications themselves and the way they are deployed. RedLock helps mitigate these issues by providing a single view of workloads and common controls across the three leading public cloud platforms; AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google." — Gaurav Kumar, Co-founder & CTO at RedLock "We find that the most compelling aspects of the RedLock Cloud 360 platform is the comprehensive visibility that it provides across an organization's public cloud infrastructure. The platform applies machine learning to automatically discover workloads and connect the dots between configuration, user activity, network traffic, and threat intelligence data. It combines this deep understanding of the cloud infrastructure with patent-pending risk scoring technology to provide a true picture of risk and help organizations prioritize issues. Security teams can quickly respond to incidents with notifications, policy orchestration, and auto-remediation." — Robi Papp, Managing Partner at AvantGarde Partners "RedLock has enormous market potential, enabling organizations to obtain the same level of visibility, security assurance, compliance and auditability in the cloud as in physical data center environments. This addresses a significant problem our clients face today." — Jonathan Villa, Practice Lead, Cloud Security at GuidePoint Security "RedLock's solution is necessary and timely given the mass migrations we're seeing to public cloud infrastructure. We can offer our customers peace of mind as they make this journey knowing that we have visibility and control across all risks within their environment."

LONDON, Feb. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- RSA Insurance Group plc, a leading multinational insurer, has deployed the multi-award winning CloudMargin platform for its over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives and Repo portfolios. CloudMargin is the world's first cloud-based, end-to-end collateral and margin management tool. Dan Ferguson, Group Treasurer of RSA Group, said: "This innovative tool is a great fit for RSA as we have a variety of instruments we need to collateralise on a daily basis. It is helping us address the significant operational challenges we will face from impending regulations effective March 1 for users of non-cleared derivatives. RSA's infrastructure for managing derivatives must keep pace with our strategic and operational objectives as well as changes in the regulatory environment. As a result of implementing CloudMargin, RSA has been able to automate the derivative and collateral management work flow, saving valuable resources, enhancing controls and protecting the business against changes in the regulatory landscape." It took less than two weeks to get RSA Insurance Group onboarded and fully functioning on the platform. The Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) based technology behind CloudMargin allows firms to automate and optimise their collateral management processes at a fraction of the cost of other solutions available in the marketplace. CloudMargin also supports regulatory compliance through enhancements which deliver automated reconciliation and reporting solutions via approved vendors. Steve Husk, CEO of CloudMargin, said: "Insurers, which have long used derivatives to hedge their risks, are experiencing the same pressures to cut costs and create efficiencies as other financial institutions. CloudMargin's ability to aggregate data, automate margin calls and streamline communication is ideal for forward-thinking insurance companies like RSA Insurance Group that demand best-in-class solutions to support compliance and efficiency requirements." He added: "RSA's strategic step of onboarding CloudMargin means it has laid a foundation for the future. Those insurers who move more quickly to embrace the cloud will gain a competitive advantage that others may struggle to match, especially as firms look to operate within the new regulatory landscape." CloudMargin is built to handle complex collateral requirements with multiple counterparties. The platform also provides automated connectivity to global custodians, banks, clearing brokers and clearing houses in order to manage collateral across all asset types and instruments. With a 300 year heritage, RSA is a multinational quoted insurance group. Focusing on general insurance, RSA's core markets are the UK & Ireland, Scandinavia and Canada, with the capability to write insurance business in over 100 countries. RSA's core businesses have around 13,500 employees with net written premiums of £6.3bn in 2016. Headquartered in London, CloudMargin created the world's first cloud-based collateral management workflow tool, which has earned eight different industry awards since 2015 for innovation and best-in-class technology. The firm's Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model is helping many of the leading financial institutions globally – including exchanges, brokerage firms, banks, asset management firms and insurance companies – meet time-critical regulatory deadlines and reduce costs associated with collateral requirements that are growing dramatically. CloudMargin bypasses many of the shortfalls of legacy, on-premise software, enabling clients to experience rapid implementation and access to robust and secure collateral management workflow software.

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--RSA® Conference, the world’s leading information security conferences and expositions, today concluded its 26th annual event in San Francisco. A record number of more than 43,000 attendees experienced keynotes, peer-to-peer sessions, track sessions, tutorials and seminars. "Leading up to RSA Conference 2017 it could have been argued that this event was the most anticipated in our history," said Linda Gray Martin, Director & General Manager of RSA Conference. "Over the last few months information security has experienced both tremendous highs, and weathered scrutiny of lows as experts in private and public sectors debated various practices of information sharing. As a result of this increased exposure, it was critical to have an RSA Conference full of constructive dialog, discussion and debate that will form the information security agenda and continue to move our industry forward. We hope our attendees took this powerful opportunity as the chance to help forge a future we can all be proud of." The 20th Annual RSA Conference Awards program highlighted the work of three security professionals in the fields of mathematics, public policy and security practices. This year’s winners included: RSAC Unplugged London will take place on June 8, 2017. RSA Conference 2017 Asia Pacific & Japan takes place July 26-28, 2017 in Singapore.

We are always excited to be at the RSA conference. Engaging with the smartest infosec professionals from our customers, partners and the community provides us with important input into our strategy and roadmaps. The increasing size of this event illustrates the growing importance and investment that every company is making in information security. And that is good for us all.” - Jeff Samuels, VP Security Marketing, Cisco “RSA Conference 2017 brought together the business and government community at the forefront of the dramatic changes reshaping cybersecurity. This year’s conference provided a valuable backdrop for us to discuss critical issues like the need for new approaches to endpoint protection, and the challenge of eliminating the cost and complexity of security operations. FireEye places a high priority on threat intelligence and the insights learned on the frontlines of today’s cyber breaches, and RSA Conference 2017 reflected the defining developments we see emerging from the continually evolving threat landscape.” - Kara Wilson, Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, FireEye "This year's RSA Conference challenged a big industry audience to think small. Small are the attack surfaces of security cameras, home routers, and mobile devices increasingly populating our office and home work environments. Small are the diverse data transactions that require innumerable protective measures. Big are the shifts in thinking that require us to think of ourselves as small players inside a vast ecosystem of solution providers. Thinking small is the first step in working together more effectively, and having a big impact with better outcomes." - Chris Young, General Manager and SVP, Intel Security “Security is a team sport. Splunk customers want solutions that work together in a coordinated and automated manner, using data, analytics, next generation firewalls, threat intelligence and other technologies to defend and protect against threats in real-time. We clearly saw at RSA Conference 2017 that the industry is moving in this direction. We heard repeatedly this year how emerging threats are disrupting and negatively impacting businesses across the globe, but the spirit of collaboration, powered by industry advancements in analytics and orchestration, were on full display at RSA.” - Haiyan Song, Senior Vice President of Security Markets, Splunk “In 2017 we continue to see a wide variety of attack types, yet many teams out there tell us they lack the proper tools or skills to address threats comprehensively. RSAC 2017 provided a valuable platform for the infosec community to come together and share ideas on how to pragmatically reduce risk for our organizations. With so many considerations – regulatory compliance, cloud, industrial OT environments – one message came through clearly: foundational security controls are more important than ever to establish resilient Infosec capabilities that deliver effective security regardless of what comes at you.” - Dwayne Melancon, Vice President of Products, Tripwire RSA Conference is the premier series of global events where the world talks security and leadership gathers, advances and emerges.
