Vertek, a leading Vermont-based solutions and security provider, is gaining momentum as a strategic AlienVault Managed Security Services Provider (MSSP) partner. With a proprietary Cloud Collector Platform, and custom development capabilities included in their approach, Vertek adds a layer of differentiation that most MSSPs competing in this space don’t offer. Vertek’s Cloud Collector Platform aggregates disparate security and event log sources from cloud-based platforms into a single pane of glass. Current clients, as well as new clients, will benefit by outsourcing their continuous network monitoring and cyber-threat detection with Vertek’s Managed Threat Intelligence solution. Clients will also gain exposure to other Vertek solutions such as Business Process Outsourcing, Business Analytics and Consulting. Vertek has offices in VT and NJ, and has been serving organizations nationwide since 1988. “As a business owner, I appreciate the peace of mind that comes from knowing that our and our customers’ systems and data are secure,” said Jim McCormick, founder of Vertek. “However, achieving that level of security is neither easy nor cheap for most businesses. We know that only too well from having been entrusted with our customers’ data for almost 3 decades. We really enjoy helping our clients secure their systems and network at a fraction of the cost if they were to attempt to do it themselves.” “Managed Threat Intelligence focuses on continuous monitoring and threat detection. In our experience, most businesses are not proficient in either,” said Ron Hruby, Director of Commercial Cybersecurity at Vertek. “As a previous IT Director of Vertek, I implemented the AlienVault technology into our own environment many years ago to meet evolving client security and reporting requirements, and layered on the monitoring and threat detection. A great deal of experience and the right mix of skills allow us to deliver the full benefits of AlienVault’s USM™ technology to our customers.” Vertek’s Managed Threat Intelligence is a comprehensive continuous monitoring and threat detection service that includes a proprietary Cloud Collector Platform, US-based SOC, and detailed reporting and analytics. Vertek’s Managed Threat Intelligence can help organizations meet highly regulated industry compliance requirements such as PCI, FFIEC, GLBA, SEC/OCIE and HIPAA/HITECH as well as fulfill many information security gaps found in industry-leading frameworks such as NIST and ISO.

The University of Southern Maine (USM), Portland, ME welcomed the 2nd Annual New England Craft Brew Summit on March 31, 2017, hosted by the Maine Brewers’ Guild. Glenn Cummings, president of USM, welcomed over 500 craft brewers as representatives of an industry “with more plaid [and] more beards than any Maine logging company.” The keynote speakers were Bart Watson, chief economist at the Brewers Association, and Katie Marisic, federal affairs manager at the Brewers Association, both willing to maintain the jovial atmosphere. Both supplied statistical data showing how the craft brewery industry in the region has been growing, with IPAs being the most preferred style in New England. With more than two breweries opening a day nationally, the field is becoming more competitive, but the New England region is cooperative rather than competitive. This attitude was apparent as neighboring breweries openly discussed their brews and provided advice. One such example of this is Austin Street Brewery, a small brewery in Portland. Located in sight of Allagash Brewing Company, the two are in frequent contact with each other and are friendly. As the keynotes finalized their talk, they stressed that the industry is growing and that there is a rise in the craft beer market and a reduction in the premium brands. The seminars were in three sessions with several options each session following either a business track or a technical track. Industry experts as well as fellow brewers shared their experiences and answered questions from attendees. Throughout the day, USM had a lab open house in which attendees could see the technical aspect of brewing while conversing with students of the curriculum. Over 25 vendors were present from across the industry, ranging from hops and malts to insurance and labels. When the tradeshow was open, local breweries offered their brews to the attendees for tasting. Although it was only the second year, the New England Brew Summit was viewed as a success, and it should. As support for the industry increases, New England is emerging as a catalyst. Simply put, six states are working cooperatively to make their entire industry grow.

United States Cellular Corporation (NYSE: USM) reported total operating revenues of $936 million for the first quarter of 2017, versus $969 million for the same period one year ago. Net income attributable to U.S. Cellular shareholders and related diluted earnings per share were $26 million and $0.31, respectively, for the first quarter of 2017, compared to $9 million and $0.10, respectively, in the same period one year ago. "As we outlined at the beginning of 2017, our priorities for the year include protecting our customer base and aggressively promoting our products and services with economically justified offerings," said Kenneth R. Meyers, U.S. Cellular president and CEO. "We executed on these priorities during the first quarter and made important progress. "Although we would have liked to have seen more new customer connections, we were very pleased with the continuing loyalty of our existing customers which was reflected in low handset churn.  We also have seen a favorable response to our new Total Plans, including unlimited options, and the recent launch of the Samsung Galaxy S8. Our disciplined approach to promotional activity and our focus on cost management in all parts of the business resulted in a strong increase in profitability this quarter. "We continued making investments in our high-quality network, moving closer to our first commercial deployment of Voice over LTE technology.  Also, in the recently completed FCC incentive auction, we acquired 600 MHz low-band spectrum in many of our markets which will enable us to better meet our customers' growing demand for data services over the long-term." 2017 Estimated Results U.S. Cellular's current estimates of full-year 2017 results are shown below.  Such estimates represent management's view as of May 5, 2017.  Such forward‑looking statements should not be assumed to be current as of any future date.  U.S. Cellular undertakes no duty to update such information, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.  There can be no assurance that final results will not differ materially from such estimated results.

If you fancy getting your hands on Canon's mighty (and we should say, extremely rare) Canon EF 1200mm f/5.6L USM telephoto lens, then head for Park Cameras' Burgess Hill store in West Sussex on Saturday March 4. The lens has a mysterious history, and its hard to say how many of them actually exist. What we do know is that this lens can chart its history back to the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles, where five FD mount lenses were used by the press. After being returned to Japan they were converted to Canon's EF mount, with the lens made available to purchase via special order. A $10,000 deposit was required, with the lens only going into production once several optics had been ordered. There are now thought to be only around 20 in existence, with one used model appearing three years ago with an asking price of £99,000. As well as the epic EF 1200mm f/5.6L USM, Park Cameras will also have every Canon EF lens currently in production available to get your hands on. Technical experts from Canon UK will be on hand to answer your questions, while Canon geek and professional photographer David Newton will be holding a series of free seminars. To learn more and to book a space on a seminar, visit the Park Cameras website.
