All the best for the New Year everyone. A very interesting article and if companies do start spending to secure themselves Batm could do very well, especially if their existing contracts are proving to be successful..... Cybersecurity Trends 2017: Companies Fight Back written by Fadi Albatal December 26, 2016 cybersecurity The waning days of 2016 were dominated by dark news on the IT security front. Headlines about massive DDoS disruptions, state-sponsored hacking and other evolving threats are unlikely to change drastically as we enter the new year, but 2017 will have a bright spot. With cyber threats increasing and the pool of skilled security talent failing to keep pace, organizations are reaching a tipping point in what they can tolerate. In the coming months, we should see companies aggressively fight back to protect themselves and their customers. The following are the 2017 cybersecurity trends we’ll be tracking. 1. We’ll see an increase in new vulnerabilities introduced through the Internet of Things (IoT). The Mirai code that was released on the Internet in mid-October aided in deploying an unprecedented DDoS attack against service provider Dyn, disrupting organizations such as Twitter and Spotify. It essentially takes over “smart” devices, or devices that are connected to the Internet, to launch denial-of-service (DoS) attacks. More than 4,800 smart devices connect to the Internet each minute, and malware such as Mirai, offering the capability to allow attackers to control these devices, represents an enormous vulnerability. Like so many other pieces of malicious code before it, Mirai will morph and undoubtedly fall into the hands of more potential attackers as it continues to spread. 2. With more hacktivism and nation-states sponsoring cybercrime, countries will have to consider “cyber arms treaties” to reverse the trend. Anonymous, New World, WikiLeaks and state-sponsored hackers dominated the news in 2016. From claiming responsibility for DDoS attacks and website defacements on organizations as a sign of civil disobedience to stealing highly classified data and correspondence from the securest of organizations and politicians, hacktivism in its various forms has been successful. The real concern for organizations and governments now is the growing armies of state-sponsored hackers who have essentially unlimited resources. Countries including China, Russia and the U.S. will have to get serious about an “arms treaty” or something similar to reverse this trend. 3. The mainstream move to the cloud and mobile computing will turn up the volume on demands for security that covers the expanding attack surface. Applications and data are moving to the cloud and mobile devices to increase access and productivity, as well as to reduce infrastructure and maintenance costs for organizations. Obviously, all of these are benefits for employees, customers, organizations and society as a whole. This transition, however, will undoubtedly create new vulnerabilities. After all, the “cloud” is just someone else’s computer, and by moving and sharing information across more devices and people, the attack surface grows—and so does the opportunity for attackers. 4. Companies will struggle to adapt, understand and adjust to updates in privacy frameworks. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) of the EU goes into effect in May 2018. For companies that control or process the personal data of Europeans—regardless of whether they’re actually based in Europe—the GDPR will impose mandatory breach reporting, the right to private-data erasure and the adoption of privacy by design (which includes data protection in the development of business processes). Failure to comply will come with steep fines (4 percent of annual global revenue or 20 million euros for violations), so businesses will spend 2017 preparing. 5. Consumers and others will lobby more aggressively for protection. Governmental surveillance will remain under the spotlight, and human-rights organizations will push for stronger privacy legislation. This pressure for change will be felt in the private sector, as well, where customers will ask for more protections in the face of major corporations suffering data breaches without repercussion. The FTC will become increasingly active in protecting customers, and the SEC will monitor publicly traded companies more closely. President-elect Trump will have to choose an orientation with regard to cybersecurity to consolidate all these regulatory interventions. 6. The security skills shortage will continue. Defending an organization against cyber attacks takes enormous resources in both technology and expertise. Many folks forget that the Internet wasn’t designed to be secure; it was designed to allow people and organizations to share information. Thus, adding security has been secondary. Most organizations are trying to plug holes and vulnerabilities, even as new ones are constantly surfacing. The experts who understand how to anticipate these vulnerabilities and adequately secure the organization are scarce. This is one trend that will persist for some time, as attackers need not be as smart as cybersecurity experts to be successful. And let’s face it: hackers only have to be right once. The experts have to be right every time. Attracting new talent and training them adequately will continue to be a challenge. 7. Companies will fight back. There is no question that attackers, hacktivists, black hats and other adversaries have a leg up on the good guys. But every phenomenon has a tipping point when the pain of these attacks spurs investment and action. The coming year represents that tipping point. In 2017, companies will get serious about protecting their intellectual property, customer data and business continuity. Customers are walking away from businesses that suffer breaches, and the regulatory environment is such that businesses will need substantial protection, whether they build it into their organizations or outsource the responsibility. In many ways, 2017 represents the continuation and evolution of cybersecurity stories that began in 2016. The plot twist we can all look for, however, will inevitably be that organizations of all shapes and sizes are realizing the stakes of this cyberwar and are taking a firm stand to protect their customers, employees, intellectual property and ability to thrive amidst constant attacks from the world’s malicious actors.

2017 predictions for the telecom industry: uCPE, vCPE and D-NFV ready to go December 27, 2016 Raanan Tzemach 0 0 In 2017, there will be significant changes made to the network architectures and infrastructures of service providers around the world. This, in turn, will enable service providers to offer new and improved services that leverage their upgraded networks and create new revenue streams. At the same time, these new network deployments will enable services providers to mitigate the exponential growth in data traffic without significantly increasing Capital expenditures (CAPEX) and operating expenses (OPEX) budgets. #1: uCPE, vCPE and D-NFV ready to go In 2017, we will start to see large scale deployments of universal Customer Premises Equipment (uCPE) networking technologies. Service providers in all regions have been evaluating these technologies for the past number of years and are now ready to go live. Tier 1 service providers in North America will certainly take the lead with uCPE deployments in early 2017 with service providers across EMEA and APAC following later in the year. Managed service providers will also quickly adopt uCPE as it will allow them to improve existing services and introduce more OTT (over-the-top) services. Global Network Function Virtualization To support future proof deployments, we see that service providers are looking at best-of-breed solutions with vendor offerings being separated into VNF (virtual network function), NFVi-OS (network functions virtualization infrastructure operating system) and hardware components. This separation will allow the promise of uCPE to be achieved by encouraging both innovation on the software side and competition and lower prices by commoditizing the hardware. #2: White box vs grey box debate takes shape Until recently, networking devices used by service providers were sold as black boxes with fixed functionality, such as routers, switches and firewalls. In an effort to optimize capex and OPEX as well as increase service agility and operational flexibility, telcos and managed service providers began exploring open CPEs that allow the separation of the hardware and software components of networking devices. Again, the idea behind this separation is to promote innovative software applications for new services, while reducing costs though the commoditization of hardware. The concept of a grey box combines a carrier-grade NID with an open standard x86 computer capable of running any VNF. Grey box solutions are considered part of an evolutionary path towards D-NFV (distributed network functions virtualization). Today, many in the telco industry consider grey box concept as a stepping stone toward pure white box solutions that provide a complete separation between hardware and software. Grey box solutions enjoy the benefits of NFV without risking carrier-grade level service, investing heavily in data center upgrade or making significant changes to operational processes. Having said that, the grey box approach does not fully align with the grow demand from service providers to separate the hardware and the software as the white box approach does. Will service providers go directly for the white box concept or will they prefer a gradual path to NFV through the grey box approach? This question will be debated throughout the telco industry in the coming year with the white box approach gaining maturity and closing the gap with carrier-grade capabilities. Market feedback indicates that during 2017 and into 2018 both approaches will coexist. The innovative service providers looking for a future proof solution will go for white box solutions, while service providers preferring a straightforward and simple path to D-NFV will opt for grey box solutions. #3: SD-WAN moving to VNF SD-WAN (software-defined wide area network) is has a strong market that is gaining traction and its adoption by Tier 1 service providers in North America is accelerating. The SD-WAN application will quickly become one of the main drivers for the deployment of uCPE devices. Many current deployment plans are based on vertical implementations – meaning black box or grey box approaches – that offer the quickest path for deployment, but these lack the openness of white box solutions. Most upcoming deployments will shift from a black and grey box approaches to white box implementations by running SD-WAN as a VNF. For service providers, this transition will future proof uCPE deployments and reduce their dependency on the SD-WAN vendor for introducing new services. #4: NFV security no longer overlooked Securing NFV deployments against cyber security vulnerabilities will have a higher profile during the upcoming year as projects move from testing environments to live deployments. The cyber security risks of NFV-enabled networks have often been overlooked and underestimated, although as PoC trials have moved to advanced stages, the need to implement security solutions to support NFV deployments has been become clear. NFV technologies offer service providers numerous benefits and clearly will be widely adopted during the coming years. However, the distributed and dynamic architecture of NFV-enabled networks and the fact the technology is based mostly on open industry standards exposes service providers to full range of new cyberattacks and security vulnerabilities. To address these new security challenges, we will start see a new generation of cybersecurity approaches that combine cloud security and network security methods in order to address the unique nature of NFV deployments. #5: Carrier Ethernet network 10GE and 100GE upgrades In the coming year, more and more network operators will be expanding their access network capacity to 10GE and some will even be adding 100GE upgrades in high density areas. By upgrading its network capacity to 10GE, a network operator will improve the quality of its services and support the ongoing growth in data traffic. The network operators that succeed with their network upgrades will be deploying fully orchestrated networks, which will simplify both the network upgrade deployment efforts and ongoing service provisioning and network maintenance activities. #6: Cable operators now competing for business customers Many cable operators are now in the process of upgrading their existing DOCSIS network infrastructures. These upgrades to DOCSIS 3.x will allow cable operators to offer advanced data services targeted at business customers. Examples of these advanced data services include Dedicated Internet Access (DIA), L2VPN, L3VPN, and inter-sites and data center connectivity. Cable operators have previously gone through phases of similar network upgrades to add telephony and data services to their main television content services. These previous rounds of network upgrades were targeted at creating additional services for residential customers. In order to support this trend, a new device category combining cable modems with L3-supported carrier Ethernet capabilities are expected to gain traction during the coming year. —

Yes, this board has always had well informed posters that have posted excellent research, and one the reasons I bought back in recently. The only thing of possible value I can add is that trade data for BVC is mostly unrepresentative of what is going on. In the past I have had Level 2 data and have come to the conclusion the best guide is to look at the share price over 3 days or so. BVC is one of the worst offenders for trade data being out of touch with the share price.To add to this I have purchased shares Twice in the past 3 weeks and both trades are unreported. Anyway,followed this company for a long time and believe we are on the up. Have a good one everybody.

Worth looking at this paragraph from the release. "As previously announced, Egens has also made the further investment, by way of a shareholder loan, to Adaltis Bio Med Company ("ABC") of US$1.5m. Adaltis' interest in ABC remains at 40%. Egens also has an option to purchase a further 10% of Adaltis' share capital, which will be exercisable for 90 days after the approval of either Adaltis' 2016 or 2017 financial statements. The purchase price is expected to be based on a valuation of Adaltis at 5.5 times turnover." FSE> OK companies are typically valued not just by their profits and EPS but also by the amount of business they do ie turnover. Its typical to value companies like BATM at 3 to 5 x turnover.... granted thats one facet of the exercise but still BATM Telco is valued at 1x turnover Were they in a failing situation you could imagine the harsh valuation but honestly this is getting absurd. all IMO Added comment. Heres another way of looking at it. Whats the turnover of Adaltis likely to be 20M ? 30M ? probably somewhere around that figure. So x 5.5 ......... thats more than the entire group is trading at actually its probably closer to double. Any number crunchers out there want to give this a go.... the first tranche payment puts Adaltis at 58M. If Egens stays with the plan and lets face it Egens can afford to then that valuation is going to x2 or x3...... Look at the Agri waste business also. What will their numbers look like in 2016 to 2017 along with the hospital units maybe 8M to 10M turnover. This is a rapidly growing division and they have a unique product. What multiple on revenue would you assign to that if it were a separate company. As I have said the many times the markets are not looking at the sum of the pieces here.

Not sure why they are still bothering with Telco. I don't quite understand it but it sounds impressive and clearly being mentioned in line with the likes of Cisco and other major telco/security companies as having potential which must mean their IP/security products are good if they can sell them but that may be some time off. As a small company Telco must be worth something to another biggie who might like to leapfrog into this field and so should have decent sale value? This Chinese investment is imo quite significant in terms of ascribing a valuation to BVC as a whole but more importantly, because of its medical/biological focus could be instrumental in getting Chinese orders for BVC's recycling plant. imo

heh woody when Mr 25K takes a hike we will be on our way.... hopefully The share price really ought to be in the mid 30p range Sections of BATM are starting to look worth more than the entire company. The proactive interview on the large agri units is worth watching. They have entered into a mix of money up front and share of the by product profits which are valued at $400 to $1000 ton and the machines turn out a ton an hour from what I could understand. OK thats not huge but some of these facilities may well employ several of them ... Zvi also talked about the US market which they can now start selling into as they have a US patent. Apparently there are no similar or alternate solutions in play at the moment so this looks very much like a one off + they have the patent. Its all looking far more significant. Obviously we would all rather hear that Telco have won a decent sized SDN contract but this at least is better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick which they have been inclined to hand out as gifts, in the past, to the long suffering.... hmmmmm
