Afilias Increases DNS Security in Latin America and the Caribbean with the Deployment of DNSSEC

Dublin, Ireland (Vocus) October 13, 2010

Afilias, a global provider of Internet infrastructure services, today announced that it has enabled Domain Name System Security Extensions (DNSSEC) for five country code Top-Level-Domains (ccTLDs) in Latin America and the Caribbean region. The ccTLDs whose zones have been secured by DNSSEC include: .AG (Antigua and Barbuda), .BZ (Belize), .HN (Honduras) .LC (St. Lucia), and .VC (Saint Vincent and the Grenadines). These TLDs were officially signed by Afilias on October 5, 2010.

“Afilias is pleased to be able to improve the security for the Latin American and Caribbean regions on behalf of our customers by enabling DNSSEC in these important top-level domains,” said Ram Mohan, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer for Afilias. “DNSSEC’s potential for securing Internet users against malicious attacks is directly dependent on its collective adoption. With the inclusion of these additional five TLDs, DNSSEC adoption continues to increase and presents a stronger argument for other members of the chain of trust to move ahead with their deployments.”

“Among the fastest growing regions of the world in terms of Internet usage, the number of Latin American and the Caribbean Internet users has increased by more than 100 fold over the last ten years,” said Dr. Patrick Lay of NIC AG, representing Antigua and Barbuda. “By deploying DNSSEC we are able to demonstrate our leadership in the Caribbean marketplace as a forward-thinking registry operator that is ready to help the Internet’s security foundation evolve for the next decade of research and development.”

DNSSEC protects the DNS from cache poisoning exploits which can allow malicious entities to intercept an Internet users’ request to access a website, and redirect or eavesdrop on the user without their knowledge, and with no ability to reassert control. DNSSEC introduces digital signatures to the DNS infrastructure and ensures that DNS responses came from their authoritative source.

“.BZ is a popular alternative where businesses are moving to call their online home,” said Juan Carlos Namis of University Management Ltd. “It is important that we provide a secure and stable environment for them and deploying DNSSEC, along with our registry provider Afilias, will allow our domain to be among the select group of early adopters that are embracing the security protocols required for the future.”

“Honduras is home to nearly one million Internet users and the security of our Internet domain, and the domains that these Internet users access, is our key priority. We are pleased to be working with Afilias on this important initiative and believe DNSSEC will benefit both our domain name owners and general consumers around the globe,” added Alicia Paz of Red de Desarrollo Sostenible Honduras.

Mr. Albert H. Daniels, TLD Administrator for NIC LC LLC of St. Lucia added, “Our country is among the list of Caribbean nations that has the highest Internet penetration within our population. Because the Web is a key part of our society and economy, it is critical that we embrace new technologies that can protect Internet consumers. We thank Afilias for their efforts in rolling out this technology for our domain.”

Afilias’ signing of these ccTLDs is part of its “Project Safeguard” initiative, bringing the number of secured TLDs on its registry platform to seven. Afilias’ Project Safeguard includes plans to rollout DNSSEC across its registry and DNS platforms and also incorporates an education and training program for Registrars to facilitate their adoption and implementation. Afilias will soon be enabling DNSSEC for the other TLDs that it supports, in total adding DNSSEC to 13 TLDs before the end of 2010.

About Afilias

Afilias is a global provider of Internet infrastructure services that connect people to their data. Afilias’ reliable, secure, scalable, and globally available technology supports a wide range of applications including Internet domain registry services, Managed DNS, and services in the RFID and supply chain market with its Afilias Discovery Services.

In America, the Burger Reigns Supreme

New York, NY (PRWEB) October 23, 2013

The iPad-based front-of-house (FOH) marketing service NoWait recently released data on the competition between two of America’s favorite foods - burgers versus wood-fired pizzas. Recent statistics from the more than 20 million diners seated through NoWait show that Americans are waiting twice as long for a burger as they are for a pizza.

The data set analyzed dedicated burger concepts and wood-fired pizzerias over an 8-week period. The sample included more than 60,000 restaurant patrons, in cities including Philadelphia, San Diego, Denver, Little Rock, Des Moines, Dallas, Pittsburgh, and others, who passed through the system. The results? On any given Saturday night across the country, Americans are waiting on average about an hour and ten minutes for burgers, and only 35 minutes for pizza.

The data reveals just how crazy Americans are for hamburgers. On the busiest of Saturdays, top burger restaurants are putting up to 1,350 people through their wait list that day – enough people to fill three 747 planes! The peak dining hours for dining show some impressive waits as well. The busiest burger restaurants have enough people on the wait list at 7pm on a Saturday night that their lines would stretch longer than a football field – that is if they didn’t use NoWait to let guests wander and receive a text when their tables are ready.

“We were astonished by the findings, and this is just a drop in the bucket considering the expansive quantities of data we collect,” said Ware Sykes, NoWait CEO. “Considering how long lines can actually become, it’s a clear indication that it was the right time to release our consumer app to get in line from your smartphone.”

The new consumer app mentioned is NoWait’s consumer-facing app that allows diners to view wait times at nearby restaurants and remotely add their name to the wait list, thereby avoiding the on-site line altogether. The App released initially on September 1 in Pittsburgh with plans for a national rollout coming in 2014.

In addition to improving the consumer’s experience, NoWait is continuously improving their seating management system for restaurateurs. NoWait recently launched a new artificial intelligence feature to rein in the confusion surrounding quoting wait times to guests. The feature, Predictive Wait Times, consists of a proprietary algorithm that accurately calculates restaurant wait times based on the restaurant’s historical wait data and real time factors like the number of guests in line and the flow of seating guests. Using this feature, restaurants are now able to take the guesswork out of quoting wait times, providing more accurate quotes and better customer service.

Additional data that NoWait provides restaurants can help them determine how long people are generally willing to wait for a table, which days and times people are willing to wait longer, and which of those repeat diners have waited the longest to enjoy their food – all statistics that ultimately help increase productivity and profitability.

About NoWait

NoWait has seated more than 20 million diners nationally and is trending towards seating 3 millions diners a month, putting the company on track to surpass OpenTable’s volume by the end of 2014. More than 3,500 restaurants are using the restaurant app, including 12 national chains and many popular independent restaurants from well-known chefs including Marc Vetri, Hubert Keller and Iron Chef Jose Garces.

Based in New York and Pittsburgh, NoWait is backed by Birchmere Ventures and Carnegie Mellon University’s Open Field Entrepreneurs Fund. More information is available at: Follow NoWait on Twitter @NoWaitApp or on Facebook at

HealthLeaders Media and Bank of America Merrill Lynch Release New Report in “Executive Insight” Project

Danvers, MA (PRWEB) August 16, 2013

HealthLeaders Media, a division of HCPro, Inc., and Bank of America Merrill Lynch have released a new research report as part of their collaborative "Executive Insight" project, designed to provide healthcare executives with insight into the economics of their industry. It is the third installment of a four-part series, consisting of quarterly buzz surveys on industry topics, Executive Insight reports analyzing the results of each survey and executive Roundtable discussions with senior finance executives from Bank of America Merrill Lynch and top provider organizations.

The report Top Skills for Top Executives analyzes the results of this months buzz survey, in which senior leaders from hospitals, health systems, physician organizations and other groups were asked to rank the importance of executive skills and about their willingness to seek outside resources. A total of 153 completed surveys are included in the analysis, which included 58 Senior Leaders.

"Clearly, leaders in the healthcare industry feel that in this time of acquiring, divesting, merging and blending, job No. 1 is adaptability and a strong vision for their organization," says John Hesselmann, Specialized Industries executive at Bank of America Merrill Lynch. Part of the companys Global Commercial Banking business, Specialized Industries provides healthcare clients with solutions such as core credit and treasury management, and also helps provide leasing, retirement capabilities and other capital-raising products.

In one of the unexpected takeaways of the survey, the report reveals a preference for so-called "soft" skills over subject expertise; a majority of healthcare leaders cite communication as the most important skill for an executive in the healthcare industry-- above medical training, technical knowledge, and even the ability to understand health reform. Also topping the list of executive skills is a vision for transformative cultural change and an ability to set the course for that change.

Seeking external guidance and outsourcing expertise continue to be common leadership practices. Among the top external resources sought by executives are legal services and technology consultants.

"If executives can do something less expensively by hiring a tech consultant, or preserve liquidity by not making a capital investment in information technology, it makes sense to outsource those things," says Charles Alston, senior vice president and market executive for healthcare at Bank of America Merrill Lynch.

Respondents were also asked to reflect on their key motivators for financial expertise. The common theme was preparation: long-term financial strategic and capital planning. In todays healthcare climate, it has become increasingly essential to understand all possible scenarios related to healthcare reform and market shifts that could impact the cost of capital.

The report features an executive spotlight with Kenneth Semmet, President and CEO of MedStar Health, a 10-hospital system serving the Baltimore-Washington area. Semmet helms a patient-focused initiative called MedStar 2020, which plots a transition from acute episodic care to integrated but widely distributed care. The program is rooted in the ideologies of philanthropy and effective communication.

"We often think of communication as speaking, but I also think theres a great opportunity in listening. Our associates have significant ideas about how we can evolve, and we have to create the right structure in the organization to allow them to be heard," says Semmet.

As a supplement to the "Executive Insight" research, HealthLeaders Media has also launched a dedicated Executive Insight Center microsite on (, featuring healthcare business resources and expert analysis.

The next project in the collaboration between HealthLeaders Media and Bank of America Merrill Lynch is scheduled for a September launch and will focus on "Opportunities from Financial Efficiencies."

Red Herring announced its Top 100 award in recognition of the leading private companies from Americas, celebrating these startups innovations and technologies across their respective industries.
