PerCV.ai, AI Software and Services Platform to Support Vision-AI Product

IRIDA LABS | February 16, 2021

Irida Labs, a leader in embedded computer vision and machine learning (ML), announced PreCV.ai.

PreCV.ai is a brand-new software and services platform that supports the full Vision-Artificial Intelligence AI product lifecycle. It is integrating ML models for people, vehicles, or any type of object detection together with vision system design, data management, and ready-to-use deployment tools for device intelligence.

With over 44-billion cameras are likely to be deployed in embedded applications and AI-driven vision solutions by 2022, 65% of all enterprise-captured video and images will be analyzed by machines rather than humans. PerCV.ai comes into the foreground targeting to help businesses convert images and video into Key Performance Indicators (KPI) that matter.

The platform is appropriate for businesses seeking a VaaS (Vision Application as A Service) using COTS HW components, but also for those targeting to disrupt their business by bringing a new «vision sensor» solution. Working with PerCV.ai is flexible, supporting use cases where a ready-to-use camera system is needed for plug-and-play Artificial Intelligence performance as well as cases where current cameras need to be AI-enabled via Edge AI kits or PerCV.ai cloud.

PerCV.ai allows the development of accessible vision-based resolutions for a wide range of markets, including Smart Cities, Industry 4.0, Surveillance, Logistic, and Smart Retail. It also allows the building of vision-based AIoT sensors and solutions with optimal performance, low-cost and reduced time to market.

Vassilis Tsagaris, CEO at Irida Labs says, “Our goal is to help companies solve real-world vision AI problems, exploiting cutting-edge ML, vision system design, data manipulation, and embedded software programming. With PerCV.ai, our new end-to-end design and deployment platform, we allow the realization of vision-based solutions that are 10-100x faster and more than 10x power saving at equal or better accuracy.”

Apiiro Launches Partner Program to Help Customers Fix Cloud-Native Application Risks Faster

Apiiro | June 03, 2022

Apiiro, the leader in Cloud-Native Application Security, today announced the Apiiro Partner Program, which provides comprehensive support for technology, consulting, and reseller partners across the Cloud-Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP) ecosystem. In the era of cloud-native application development, the remediation lifecycle is getting longer and more complex because risks are distributed across the design, code, open source packages, infra-as-code, containers, Git and CI/CD servers, and cloud infrastructure. In addition, the shift in responsibilities and the use of a multitude of tools, each addressing only a small subset of cloud-native application risks has reduced the overall efficacy with noisy alerts and false-positives due to the lack of context. Context from cloud infrastructure to code and Software Bill Of Materials visibility (SBOM) are instrumental for the remediation process across the software supply chain. Partners like Alacrinet, Defy Security, Google Cloud, HashiCorp, NetSPI, NXGN, Parabellyx, and Trace3 from the cloud-native application security, DevOps, cloud infrastructure security, and other cybersecurity industries are joining the Apiiro Partner Program to work together to help customers remediate cloud-native application risks across the software supply chain. Partners will benefit from the Apiiro Risk Graph technology and enabling resources to speed customer adoption and success with a contextual shift left risk remediation technology. "Our customers aren't just modernizing their cloud-native application security - they're reinventing the way they develop, build, and deploy cloud-native applications across the software supply chain. By uniting in the Apiiro Partner Program, Apiiro and our partners can collectively ensure cloud-native applications are developed and delivered in a secure manner." John Leon, VP of Business Development at Apiiro Program benefits include training materials and sales resources, access to technical evaluation demos and documentation to enable go to market and joint promotion opportunities. By enrolling in the Apiiro Partner Program, partners can increase their value to customers by delivering contextual shift left risk remediation before releasing to the cloud. About Apiiro Apiiro helps security and development teams proactively fix risk across the software supply chain, before releasing to the cloud.
