Other recent developments in the tech industry include:

Viasat Inc. a global communications company, this month announced it has made new security capabilities available for U.S. and international Five Eyes (FVEY) naval forces. Viasat introduced its integrated Mobile Dynamic Defense (MDD) cybersecurity software for use at sea to securely capture and distribute sensitive data to onshore counterparts, and defend against rapidly evolving cyber threats during a maritime mission. MDD is highly valuable for maritime platforms because of its ability to provide the necessary policy enforcement and in-mission configuration flexibility without a connection to a remote management system by using the information assurance "Defense in Depth" model, which weaves together multiple layers of security controls and countermeasures.

QUALCOMM Incorporated recently announced the industry's first qualified end-to-end Bluetooth Smart Headset reference design featuring push-button activation support for Alexa for users of Android phones with the Alexa app. Based on Qualcomm Technologies International's most advanced family of Bluetooth audio chips (QCC5100-series), the reference design includes virtually all the key hardware and software required for manufacturers to help them develop advanced Bluetooth headsets more efficiently and cost-effectively. In addition to support for Alexa, the solution also supports ultra-low power consumption for extended playback time and battery life, as well as Qualcomm® cVc™ noise reduction technology designed for superior audio and voice service capabilities. Manufacturers can also add support for active noise cancellation and Qualcomm® aptX™ HD high-resolution wireless audio.

Juniper Networks Inc and Nutanix recently announced new initiatives under their existing partnership designed to simplify enterprises' journey to multicloud architectures, making network and security act as seamless partners with compute and storage. As enterprises transition to multicloud environments, they need simplified and automated network management, as well as integrated and agile security. To enable this, Juniper Networks and Nutanix are deepening their collaboration in an effort to provide seamless integration between virtual and physical networks that is vital to a multicloud future. The goal is for Juniper's Contrail Enterprise Multicloud to integrate with Nutanix APIs to provide enhanced network visibility for virtualized workloads, ultimately facilitating automated fabric management. Additionally, Juniper's Unified Cybersecurity Platform together with Nutanix's software-defined networking offering, Flow, and AHV hypervisor, intends to secure applications with microsegmentation in enterprise cloud, as well as provide a hardened security posture that prevents lateral propagation of threats. Enterprises will be able to deploy the vSRX integrated virtual firewall in their Nutanix environment, extending the same capability across multicloud architectures with a single point of control using vSRX on-premises and in AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform.

Verizon Communications Inc.'s network is operational across the Panhandle, and efforts are underway to further stabilize and strengthen our wireless network in Panama City, throughout Bay and Gulf Counties, and across the Panhandle.
