Arcanus www.arcanus-group.com On the basis of the accumulated experience of our consultants in the area of Ethical Hacking, we are searching for a change of paradigm in relation to audits.

This productization of the service improves its quality in a substantial amount because auditing the system periodically was a poor methodology in relation to the dynamism of the risky environment that the companies face. Also, it allows us to change to a more scalable method that establishes an important competitive edge, capitalizing the intelligence and knowledge that the consultants previously applied.

MartĂ­n Gorlero martin@wupiti.com

discount the user who shares his purchase in Facebook or twitter.

Wupiti! is a tool that creates effortless high value social media presence for merchants while providing them with new sales and vital information (statistics/habits) about their consumers. Users create, through Wupiti!, posts in their social network accounts naming the merchant and adding a picture of the product that they are acquiring in exchange for a discount or benefit. This way, the users open their social media accounts for the merchants (who reach their friends) and share with their network the joy of buying something at a discounted rate. A post-sale interaction is started around the product that they have just acquired, creating massive rich social media exposure. The merchant reaches its clients’ friends with advertisements that are considered suggestions from friends or high quality word-ofmouth recommendations. The action must be published in Wupiti! when purchasing the product at the store, before paying for it. No other existing tool combines datamining+discounts+social network sharing in a smartphone application. We capture the buyer’s information when shopping at a brick-and-mortar store that, otherwise, would remain unknown. The anonymous demographic information of the buyers is extracted from Facebook and can be accessed by the store from a "Reports page" on the Wupiti!'s web control panel.

import-export business, and even in-house company systems such as ERP and CRM access. Every company should be able to use the credentials that better fit its risk management policy, budget and infrastructure. The use of two (or more) strong factor authentication methods, ranging from OTP to facial recognition, accompanied by an auditable non-repudiation record system, are more relevant every day, in a world where we constantly increase the criticality of Internet in our daily lives. We propose a monetization scheme based on a per authorization or per credential charge, and we project a market cap not smaller than USD 720 millons in LatAm alone by the time 80% of the companies and institutions with virtual channels demand the usage of a second authentication credential.
