DALLAS, Dec. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ProTek Capital, Inc. (OTCPK: PRPM) is pleased to announce Shareholders updates and recent developments.
The management for ProTek Capital, Inc., filed to re domicile the company to Wyoming. Therefore saving on tremendous expenses of fees and filings with the current Nevada state. As part of preparation for the 2013 season and restructuring of ProTek, the company will open a New Software Development and Marketing office in Nashville. This is in anticipation of closing the Legal Clicks dot Com deal. In addition, ProTek will also have presence at current sister companies locations in Dallas Texas, New York and Florida.
The company is in the final stages of negotiating a funding agreement that will facilitate a completion of several acquisitions.
"We are very picky as to what kind of a deal we will entertain. My group is used to fund our own deals, as we have here with ProTek. However, as we proceed with high end acquisitions, we will seek help with funding groups that we know and trust. We are working with a very reputable group, that will help us achieve these ambitious goals without the typical 'toxic' or Death Spiral financings that is usually associated with Microcap companies and acquisitions. This will allow us to focus on fundamentals such as revenues, product development, earnings per share and EBITDA that will get ProTek a multiple that is indicative to a high tech and software development company. This will be combined with several already existing public companies that are in need of additional software and technology upgrades. These companies already agreed on the co-production deals, so the outlook for 2013 is starting to look very positive for ProTek Capital, Inc.," stated Edward Vakser, interim CEO of ProTek.
ProTek Capital, Inc., has been recently acquired by a new investment group. The new investors implemented a new business plan that would be fulfilled by new management and a newly appointed board.
The recent developments in ProTek Capital, Inc., has prompted this management to release a shareholders update and a recap of recent developments.
The management of ProTek will implement a monthly Shareholders Updates routine. "Along with the normal set of disclosures, significant events and Press Releases, the management will do a monthly Press Release to maintain an information and disclosure flow for our shareholders. We feel that the ProTek Capital in its past form has created a great following among the investment community and our management desires to honor and respect their loyalty to the company. We realized that as we took over and implemented the new business concepts and plans, the investors may speculate and have the wrong ideas about our intent and plans. So, as the interim CEO and a board representative, I wanted to assure that there are certain corporate actions that will not take place. For example, the current interim management as well as the newly assigned board of directors are not contemplating nor consider implementing and reverse stock split. However, we are implementing an aggressive 'buy back' program due to the fact that in our current management opinion, ProTek stock is extremely underpriced and undervalued. Nor are we considering any sort of 'toxic' and/or convertible debenture financing. We feel that since we are self funding group, we can grow and prosper with the current loyal and supportive shareholders," stated Edward Vakser, Chairman/CEO of ProTek Capital, Inc.

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...

Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user's habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality.

The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
