    Palo Alto Networks Again A Leader In The Gartner Magic Quadrant For Enterprise Network Firewalls

    SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Palo Alto Networks(R) , the leader in enterprise security, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner Inc. in the "leaders" quadrant of the April 22, 2015 "Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Network Firewalls."

    http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnvar/20130508/SF04701LOGO

    This marks the fourth year that Palo Alto Networks has been recognized as a leader in the Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Firewalls(1), which evaluates vendors' ability to execute and completeness of vision.

    According to the report, "The Leaders quadrant contains vendors that build products that fulfill enterprise requirements. These requirements include a wide range of models, support for virtualization and virtual LANs, and a management and reporting capability that is designed for complex and high-volume environments, such as multitier administration and rule/policy minimization. A solid NGFW capability is an important element as enterprises continue to move away from having dedicated IPS appliances at their perimeter and remote locations. Vendors in this quadrant lead the market in offering new safeguarding features, providing expert capability rather than treating the firewall as a commodity, and having a good track record of avoiding vulnerabilities in their security products. Common characteristics include handling the highest throughput with minimal performance loss and offering options for hardware acceleration."

    QUOTE

    --  "It's an honor to be recognized for our ability to execute and
    completeness of vision in Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Enterprise
    Network Firewalls, and we're thrilled to achieve this position for the
    fourth time. We are proud to see that our next-generation firewall
    continues to set the bar in the industry. It is the cornerstone of our
    unique enterprise security platform that combines network, cloud and
    endpoint security capabilities to safely enable applications and deliver
    automated prevention against cyber attacks - known and unknown." - Rene
    Bonvanie, CMO, Palo Alto Networks
    

    Because of our deep expertise, steadfast commitment to innovation and proven, highly integrated enterprise security platform approach, approximately 22,500 customers have chosen Palo Alto Networks, making us the fastest growing security company in the market.

    Comcast Foundation Grants Over $100,000 To California State PTA In Support Of Digital Literacy Curriculum For ParentsTwo year grant helps expand School Smarts program that educates and empowers parents, creating meaningful and diverse parent involvement

    SACRAMENTO, Calif., May 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The Comcast Foundation today announced a grant of more than $100,000 for the California State PTA. The two year grant will be used to develop digital literacy curriculum and sessions for the organization's School Smarts Parent Engagement Program.

    The program currently offers a seven session parent academy that educates parents on topics that include: understanding the education system, communicating effectively, advocating for a quality education, and the importance of parent involvement. The key principle of the program is inclusion and the curriculum is available in English, Spanish, Chinese, Arabic, Tagalog and Vietnamese. The new curriculum supported by this grant will be launched at pilot sites during the 2015-16 school year, with plans to scale it to all School Smarts program sites the following year.

    "Comcast has been a great friend and supporter of our organization since 2011 as part of their commitment to California," said Colleen A. R. You, President of California State PTA. "This grant allows us to give more families across the state even greater access to the resources they need in order to succeed in today's increasingly digital world."

    "We are proud to support such an important initiative. Closing the digital divide is a top priority for Comcast and we are excited to partner with the California State PTA to bring this new curriculum to parents," said Hank Fore, Senior Vice President of Comcast's California Region.

    Including this most recent grant, Comcast NBCUniversal has donated more than $38,900,000 in California to organizations and programs dedicated to closing the digital divide, youth development and volunteerism. Last year, Comcast supported the Greater Sacramento Urban League with a grant that empowers youth through the Digital Connectors program with digital multimedia skills to support them in their education and career. Additionally, last November, Comcast partnered with the Boys & Girls Club of America to launch a new technology program, called My.Future. The program teaches Club kids about the digital world and ignites passion around the endless possibilities that technology offers.

    To address the digital divide, in 2011 Comcast launched its Internet Essentials program to help bridge the gap. Comcast, via Internet Essentials, is the only company with a comprehensive, nation-wide program to address the digital divide by offering low-cost, high-speed internet service to the home, access to affordable computers and training to low-income students and families.

    About the Comcast Foundation
    The Comcast Foundation was founded by Comcast Corporation in June 1999 to provide charitable support to qualified non-profit organizations. The Foundation primarily invests in programs intended to have a positive, sustainable impact on their communities. The Foundation has three community investment priorities--promoting service, expanding digital literacy, and building tomorrow's leaders. Since its inception, the Comcast Foundation has donated nearly $158 million to organizations in the communities nationwide that Comcast serves. More information about the Foundation and its programs is available at www.comcast.com/community.

    About the California State PTA
    As nearly 1 million Californians supporting 9 million California children as part of a century-long, nationwide, grassroots movement, California State PTA is a professional, non-profit volunteer organization committed to the well-being of all children and families.

    IMAX(R) Continues Roll-Out Of Its Next-Generation Laser Projection System At The Smithsonian And Pacific Science CenterIconic Institutions to Launch Ground-breaking Technology with Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron; Sequel Marks First Film to Receive New IMAX 12-Channel Sound Mix

    NEW YORK, May 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- IMAX Corporation today announced it is launching its new laser projection system in the Airbus IMAX Theater at the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly, Va., and in the Boeing IMAX Theater at Pacific Science Center in Seattle, Washington on May 1 - just in time for the release of Marvel's highly anticipated film, Avengers: Age of Ultron. The ground-breaking technology will provide audiences at the theatres with unparalleled brightness, contrast, color and sound.

    http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnvar/20111107/MM01969LOGO

    Today's announcement brings IMAX's laser network to four - including Cineplex's Scotiabank theatre in Toronto and The TCL Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles. In collaboration with the filmmakers and Marvel, Avengers: Age of Ultron will mark the first film to be re-mixed for IMAX's new 12 channel sound system at these IMAX with laser locations.

    "We are pleased that two of our longtime partners - the Smithsonian and Pacific Science Center - will be bringing this cutting-edge laser technology to their prestigious venues," said IMAX CEO Richard L. Gelfond. "We couldn't think of a better film to launch these locations, as well as our first 12-channel sound mix, than Marvel's highly-anticipated Avengers sequel. The feedback and support we have been receiving on the new system from filmmakers, exhibitors and moviegoers have been extremely encouraging and we look forward to continuing our mission to blend art with science to create a unique experience audiences can't find anywhere else."

    Zarth Bertsch, Smithsonian's Director of Theaters, added: "IMAX with laser will deliver our visitors at the Airbus IMAX Theater a more immersive and visceral experience, including 3D for the first time, enabling us to show more documentary films and Hollywood blockbusters. We're excited to be the first museum in the world to receive this new technology - continuing our decades-long partnership with IMAX to provide the best educational and entertainment experiences."

    Diane Carlson, Pacific Science Center's Vice President Guest Services & Theaters, commented: "Pacific Science Center has partnered with IMAX since 1979 to provide the best presentation in cinema. They keep innovating and we keep upgrading. IMAX with laser immerses our audiences in the action like never before with brighter, crisper images and the ultimate immersive sound system. The IMAX with laser experience has set the new cinematic standard for excitement and education and we are proud to present it to our community."

    Designed from the ground up for IMAX's largest screens, the dual 4K laser projection system is equipped with a new optical engine and suite of proprietary IMAX technologies capable of projecting an image with up to a 1.43:1 aspect ratio with maximum resolution and sharpness, unparalleled 2D and 3D brightness, industry-leading contrast and an expanded color gamut that will allow filmmakers to present more vivid and exotic colors than ever before.

    The new system also includes IMAX's next-generation sound technology that delivers even greater power and precision for ultimate audio immersion. It has been upgraded to 12 discrete channels plus sub-bass, and includes additional side channels as well as new overhead channels that will improve the system's ability to position sounds around the audience and further ensure every seat is the best in the house.

    IMAX has signed more than 71 laser system deals to date with iconic venues such as AMC Theatres' Lincoln Square 13 (New York City), Universal Citywalk Stadium 19 (Los Angeles) and Metreon 16 (San Francisco) IMAX locations, the Empire Leicester Square IMAX (London), the Darling Harbor IMAX (Sydney), as well as several upcoming Wanda IMAX locations in China.

    The IMAX release of Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of An IMAX 3D Experience(R) with proprietary IMAX DMR(R) (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images coupled with IMAX's customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.

    Elekta to showcase Leksell Gamma Knife Registry at AANS Annual MeetingCloud-based solution allows physicians to harness radiosurgery big data

    ATLANTA, May 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- At the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS) Annual Meeting, May 2-6 in Washington D.C., Elekta will highlight Leksell Gamma Knife(R) Registry, a solution that enables clinicians to leverage the enormous amount of data - generated by thousands of Gamma Knife radiosurgery treatments conducted each year - to advance clinical research and further optimize patient care.

    "Gamma Knife Registry is a cloud-based solution that allows practitioners to store, retrieve, and analyze Gamma Knife radiosurgery treatment data*, as well as patient outcomes and operational information in a common format," says Catherine Gilmore-Lawless, Elekta Vice President, Clinical Intelligence. "By enabling uniform data entry and indication-specific analysis of Gamma Knife radiosurgery outcomes, clinicians now have a powerful tool to expand the use of this proven technology for more indications."

    Currently deployed at several top academic medical centers, Leksell Gamma Knife Registry aims to:

    --  Identify global treatment patterns with Leksell Gamma Knife, and
    connections between treatment parameters and outcomes
    --  Provide integrated longitudinal data that could help clinicians develop
    insights to better select patients, personalize the treatment paradigm,
    and improve quality
    --  Advance collaboration in clinical research
    

    "As a part of Elekta's Knowledge Management solution, Gamma Knife Registry is critical to deliver on our vision of Information-guided care(TM)," says Richard Stark, Senior Vice President, Elekta Software. "Gamma Knife Registry allows users to better aggregate, analyze and gather insights needed to deliver the most effective and personalized care for each patient. Users can share their experiences in optimizing Gamma Knife treatments to make better-informed clinical decisions for their patients' care and increase quality and efficiency in their practices. The underlying goal is to drive better patient outcomes."

    Leksell Gamma Knife Registry encompasses a secure HIPAA-compliant data warehouse and advanced indication specific analytics. Aggregated, de-identified data can be used for studies undertaken by the global Gamma Knife community. Interactive, self-service dashboards for visual discovery and reports are included, in addition to Leksell Gamma Knife(R) Society statistical reports.

    Collaborative development
    Registry development was a joint effort between Elekta and renowned Gamma Knife centers, including the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, and veteran Gamma Knife radiosurgery practitioners, notably, Douglas Kondziolka, MD, Professor of Neurosurgery and Radiation Oncology at New York University School of Medicine.

    "Our goal was to create new data sets, specific for Gamma Knife radiosurgery that are updated continuously and securely over the web," Dr. Kondziolka says. "This will allow clinicians to obtain data queries in real time to benchmark their own data with those nationally or globally. Importantly, underlying these high level views is a rich database with detailed treatment and follow-up data, which is ideally suited for research. Imagine basing a study on not 50 or 100 patients, but 10,000 or 50,000 patients on these 'Big Data' verified data sets. With that kind of powerful information, we may be able to really effect change in medicine."

    Elekta supports the National SRS Brain Registry, a joint effort by the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) and AANS which seeks to define national patterns of care in radiosurgery with an eye toward improving health care outcomes, supporting informed decision making and potentially lowering the cost-of-care delivery to patients. Elekta's Gamma Knife Registry will be utilized by participants to collect and provide data to the national effort.

    Maker of RITZ, CHIPS AHOY and TRIDENT Kicks Off Movement to #PASSTHELOVE to U.S. Women's National TeamOfficial Snacks of U.S. Soccer Rally Consumers before International Competition

    DEERFIELD, Ill., May 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The Official Snacks of U.S. Soccer have a message for soccer lovers across the country - it's time to #PassTheLove!

    Today Mondelez International, maker of RITZ, CHIPS AHOY and TRIDENT, announced a socially charged campaign to rally consumers and fans across the country to share a message of support for the U.S. Women's National Team as the squad prepares to compete in the world's largest women's international soccer tournament.

    "The U.S. Women's National Team have inspired the entire country with some of the most memorable performances in sports history, so our brands want to return the favor by rallying consumers behind the 2015 team," said Stephen Chriss, Senior Director, North America Consumer Engagement and Marketing Services at Mondelez International. "We hope #PassTheLove becomes a rallying cry for fans and a way for these amazing athletes to see how much support they have here at home."

    This is the second year the Official Snacks of U.S. Soccer have prompted fans to #PassTheLove. The campaign launched in 2014 in support of the U.S. Men's National Team ahead of the competition in Brazil and quickly became the company's largest multi-brand program to date.

    This year, the focus shifts to the U.S. Women's National Team, which will head to Canada in June to face the best national teams from across the globe. The #PassTheLove campaign is designed to rally consumers around the team, and the program will be backed by thousands of retail displays; shopper marketing programs; breakthrough real-time social content; adaptive advertising, including an ongoing partnership with Blink Studios; interactive consumer events; in-stadium and in-person consumer engagement at U.S. Soccer games before the team departs for Canada.

    How Fans #PassTheLove
    RITZ, CHIPS AHOY and TRIDENT and the rest of the Official Snacks of U.S. Soccer are creating an interactive digital "Fan Wall of Support" and giving consumers multiple ways to #PassTheLove, including:

    --  Online at PassTheLove.com: Fans can go to PassTheLove.com beginning May
    15 to share a message of support from their social media channels
    directly to the Wall of Support. Posting a message allows visitors to
    automatically get entered to receive instant-win prizes - such as
    snacks, U.S. Soccer jerseys, gear and other giveaways - that will be
    awarded hourly all the way up to the competition.
    --  At U.S. Soccer Games: The Fan Wall of Support will come alive at the
    three Send-Off Series Games in May. Through a large-screen digital
    display, fans can share their messages near the stadium at three
    matches: May 10 at Avaya Stadium in San Jose, California; May 17 at
    StubHub Center in Carson, California; and May 30 at Red Bull Arena in
    Harrison, New Jersey.
    

    Star-Studded Kick-Off
    To launch #PassTheLove in 2015, the Official Snacks of U.S. Soccer invited consumers to help create a stunning mural celebrating the U.S. Women's National Team - with a twist. Instead of paint brushes, the mural was created by kicks of a soccer ball projecting paint onto the surface. Thus, each pass of the ball became a symbolic way for people to #PassTheLove.

    This innovative, interactive experience was created in Hermosa Beach, California - just miles from the training site of the U.S. Women's National Team - on the same day the team reported to its final pre-tournament camp.

    U.S. soccer star Alex Morgan, now in her second year of a sponsorship with Mondelez International and the Official Snacks of U.S. Soccer, attended the event and provided one of the first kicks to the canvas.

    "It's always so inspiring to see and hear support from soccer fans, and I'm extremely appreciative to RITZ, CHIPS AHOY and TRIDENT for rallying people to #PassTheLove," said Morgan, one of the sport's premier players. "People always ask me whether players actually listen to the positive messages we get on social media - and the answer is yes, we love it."

    A Growing Soccer Movement
    Through its expanding sponsorships and engaging consumer activations, Mondelez International has rapidly established itself as a key supporter of the sport at a time when attendance and enthusiasm for soccer are skyrocketing.

    Beyond its designation as the Official Snacks of U.S. Soccer (Men's and Women's teams) and individual sponsorship with Morgan, Mondelez International recently announced a deal to become the Official Snacks of Major League Soccer.

    The designations of Official Snacks of U.S. Soccer and MLS extend to the cookie, candy, cracker and gum categories and are inclusive of a series of globally-recognized brands operated by Mondelez International, including: OREO, CHIPS AHOY, RITZ, WHEAT THINS, HONEY MAID, NEWTONS, BELVITA, TRIDENT, DENTYNE, STRIDE and SOUR PATCH KIDS, among others.

    Mondelez International recognizes the enormous potential to leverage the sport's growing stature with a broad range of consumers - including multicultural audiences - whether it's in-store, in-stadium or through innovative digital media executions.

    "Our #PassTheLove campaign proves the power of soccer to help our brands score with consumers, and we plan to make this year even bigger," said Chriss. "Our goal is to open the sport up to new consumers and reinforce how our snacks increase the fun of soccer, whether you're at the stadium, watching on TV or playing the game."

    BBVA Compass kicks off this year's Great Ideas for Small Business Contest- Bank to award $15,000 and $5,000 to grand prize winner and runner-up, respectively- Contest designed to help small business owners, entrepreneurs expand their businesses- Connecting through social media

    HOUSTON, May 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- BBVA Compass today launched a new Great Ideas for Small Business contest that taps into its social media networks to reward those entrepreneurs who are thinking of new, exciting ways of doing business.

    https://photos.prnewswire.com/prnvar/20150430/213146

    The contest, which builds on the successful campaign launched in 2013, extends BBVA Compass' efforts to fuel small business growth throughout its footprint. Small business owners and entrepreneurs interested in participating can submit their business ideas using the #GIFSBcontest hashtag on Twitter and Instagram or by uploading their photos and ideas to the contest website for a chance to compete for a $15,000 grand prize and $5,000 runner up prize.

    "Small businesses are a vital part of our communities," said Lonnie Hayes, small business banking executive director at BBVA Compass. "As an organization, we are committed to supporting the growth strategies of small business owners as they strive to move their companies forward."

    The competition will be held in two phases, with phase one of the contest submission period beginning today and extending through May 15. Winners will be determined based on a combination of social media community votes received during phase two, which runs May 16 through May 31, and scores given by a panel of judges from BBVA Compass.

    The bank's first Great Ideas for Small Business contest took place in 2013, on Facebook, and awarded $10,000 each to Birmingham, Ala.-based The Green Bottle Candle Co. and Truth or Consequences, N.M.-based The Centipede(TM) Sawhorse.

    Ed Adkins, inventor of The Centipede Sawhorse, said the contest helped his company connect with and grow its social media followers. Adkins said the prize was awarded at a critical point in the startup of his company, and allowed him to subsidize shipping costs for distributing the first production run to its crowdfunding supporters.

    "We're hoping to surpass the last contest's success by engaging more business owners in the social media conversation, and we look forward to helping two small business owners take their companies to the next level," Hayes said.

    More information about the BBVA Compass' Great Ideas for Small Business contest is available here.
