LeChal : Wearable technology can be fashionable & usable too …

Fashion and technology need to go hand in hand to be able to attract buyers in this market which is why the connection between the two  is getting stronger as manufacturers recognize that people want to not only wear something that works well, but looks good too.

According to a study by Endeavour Partners, one of world’s leading strategy firm in the US, more than half of the people who bought a health and fitness wearable had stopped wearing it, and a third of those had put it aside within the first six months of receiving it, unless, it appealed to their sense of fashion and beauty. As a result, fashion is an important consideration when designing a wearable but again, the design alone will fail to keep its buyers interested in the gadget for too long [Report Link here]

“What is required is the fusion of fashion into technology to impart widespread adoption of wearable technologies, especially if you are looking at making what is intended to be worn 24/7 or for longer periods of time” explains Krispian Lawrence, founder and CEO of Ducere Technology who launched LeChal-world’s first haptic based interactive footwear.

Fashion aspect of LeChal

The shoes by the company were created keeping this aspect in mind. The three elements of fashion, technology and comfort are equally important when designing a wearable tech gadget and LeChal is a reflection of that. Its features and applications are unique as is its design and comfort.

The developers of the product wanted their product to look good enough to be picked up from a shop window even before its usefulness came to the fore. USP of the product, its functionality and of course being a wearable product, its comfort for the wearable becomes important.

All gadgets in the wearable space usually follow this mantra to make their product sellable in the market. Since what we wear is personal, it is a reflection of who we are. Thus, the two have a clear interplay and wearable technology will sell only if they are also desirable.

Lechal [lay-chull, “Take me along” in Hindi] footwear is a disruptive innovation designed to smoothly integrate into the everyday.

LeChal_Shoe

Features of LeChal

Available as an insole or a shoe, Lechal footwear uses Bluetooth technology to connect to the user’s smartphone via the Lechal App. Using simple foot gestures or voice commands, the wearer can use it as a navigational tool or track their activity from a fitness perspective. The footwear communicates with the user via gentle vibratory responses or Haptic feedback.

In addition to taking you places, you can also tag favourite locations, share new routes, create group journeys – all with your footwear! It also tracks the number of steps taken, calories burnt & distance travelled, logs your fitness activity & charts your activity over time.

Intended user-base of LeChal

Lechal is for everyone – early adopters of wearables, people who like to travel and explore, fitness freaks, cyclists, runners, people who are tech-savvy and those who are not, back-seat drivers, design aficionados, the fashion-conscious, and the use cases are as varied as the users.

LECHAL_footwear

Launched in 2014, Lechal has received an overwhelmingly positive response, with over 50,000 pre-orders received to date from across the world. With distributors from over 65 countries showing interest in this one-of-a-kind product, Lechal footwear will also soon be available at retailers and e-tailers around the world.

Lechal footwear was initially conceived as a solution to help the visually-impaired navigate their worlds better. This genesis is what led to the Lechal Initiative, where the proceeds from the sale of each pair of Lechal footwear go towards subsidising a pair for someone who is visually-challenged.

Ducere Technologies has partnered with the world-renowned L.V. Prasad Eye Institute in Hyderabad to make this a reality.

A pair of Lechal insoles will cost between 100$ & 150$ and the shoes will be slightly more expensive. You can pre-order a pair of Lechal from here

Intel Security Report Details Challenges Slowing Response to Targeted Attacks

Intel_Security

A new report, Tackling Attack Detection and Incident Response, from Enterprise Strategy Group [ESG], commissioned by Intel Security, examines organizations’ security strategies, cyber-attack environment, incident response challenges and needs.

The survey found that security professionals are inundated with security incidents, averaging 78 investigations per organization in the last year, with 28 percent of those incidents involving targeted attacks – one of the most dangerous and potentially damaging forms of cyber-attacks.

According to the IT and security professionals  surveyed, better detection tools, better analysis tools & more training on how to deal with incident response issues are the top ways to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the information security staff.

Better Integration

Nearly 80 percent of the people surveyed believe the lack of integration and communication between security tools creates bottlenecks & interferes with their ability to detect and respond to security threats. Real-time, comprehensive visibility is especially important for rapid response to targeted attacks and 37 percent called for tighter integration between security intelligence and IT operations tools.

In addition, the top time-consuming tasks involved scoping and taking action to minimize the impact of an attack, activities that can be accelerated by integration of tools. These responses suggest that the very common patchwork architectures of dozens of individual security products have created numerous silos of tools, consoles, processes and reports that prove very time consuming to use. These architectures are creating ever greater volumes of attack data that drown out relevant indicators of attack.

Better Comprehension

Security professionals surveyed claim that real-time security visibility suffers from limited understanding of user behaviour and network, application and host behaviour. While the top four types of data collected are network-related, and 30 percent collect user activity data, it’s clear that data capture isn’t sufficient. Users need more help to contextualize the data to understand what behaviour is worrisome. This gap may explain why nearly half [47 percent] of organizations said determining the impact or scope of a security incident was particularly time consuming.

Better Analytics

Users understand they need help to evolve from simply collecting volumes of security event and threat intelligence data to more effectively making sense of the data and using it to detect and assess incidents. Fifty-eight percent said they need better detection tools, [such as static and dynamic analysis tools with cloud-based intelligence to analyse files for intent].

Fifty-three percent say they need better analysis tools for turning security data into actionable intelligence.  One-third [33%] called for better tools to baseline normal system behaviour so teams can detect variances faster.

Better Expertise

People who took the survey admitted to a lack of knowledge of the threat landscape and security investigation skills, suggesting that even better visibility through technical integration or analytical capabilities will be inadequate if incident response teams cannot make sense of the information they see. For instance, only 45 percent of respondents consider themselves very knowledgeable about malware obfuscation techniques, and 40 percent called for more training to improve cyber security knowledge and skills.

Automation to Enhance Action

The volume of investigations and limited resources and skills contributed to a strong desire among respondents to help incident detection and response. Forty-two percent reported that taking action to minimize the impact of an attack was one of their most time-consuming tasks. Twenty-seven percent would like better automated analytics from security intelligence tools to speed real-time comprehension; while 15 percent want automation of processes to free up staff for more important duties.

The ESG believes that there is a hidden story within the Intel Security research that hints at best practices and lessons learned.

This data strongly suggests that CISOs

Create a tightly-integrated enterprise security technology architecture

CISOs must replace individual security point tools with an integrated security architecture. This strategy works to improve the sharing of attack information and cross-enterprise visibility into user, endpoint & network behaviour, not to mention more effective, coordinated responses.

Anchor their cyber security strategy with strong analytics, moving from volume to value

Cyber security strategies must be based upon strong security analytics. This means collecting, processing, and analysing massive amounts of internal [i.e., logs, flows, packets, endpoint forensics, static/dynamic malware analysis, organizational intelligence [i.e., user behaviour, business behaviour, etc.]] and external data [i.e., threat intelligence, vulnerability notifications, etc.].

Automate incident detection and response whenever possible

Because organizations will always struggle to keep up with the most recent attack techniques, CISOs must commit to more automation such as advanced malware analytics, intelligent algorithms, machine learning & the consumption of threat intelligence to compare internal behaviour with incidents of compromise [IoCs] and tactics, techniques, and procedures [TTPs] used by cyber-adversaries.

Commit to continuous cyber security education

CISOs should require ongoing cyber-education for their security teams, including an annual series of courses that provide individual professionals more depth of understanding of threats and best practices for efficient & effective incident response.

The full Intel Security report can be downloaded from the following link. 

Survey Methodology

Intel Security surveyed 700 IT and security professionals at mid-market [i.e. 500 to 999 employees] and enterprise [i.e. more than 1,000 employees] organizations located in Asia, North America, EMEA and South America. Respondents came from numerous industries with the largest respondent populations coming from information technology [19 percent], manufacturing and materials [13 percent] & financial services [9 percent].
