Providence College is a private, coeducational, Catholic college located in Providence, Rhode Island. With its 2010–2011 enrollments of 3,850 undergraduate and 735 graduate students, the college specializes in academic programs focused on the liberal arts. Identify and install a security solution that was easy to implement, didn’t contribute to operational overhead and eliminated the shortcomings of signature-based detection technologies such as NGFW, IPS and AV, which cannot stop advanced malware. Solution Deployment of FireEye Web Malware Protection System 4000 Series appliance. Benefits Protection against advanced malware, zero-day and targeted APT attacks as well as immediate visibility into previously undetected malicious code and optimization of remediation processes permitted swift cost justification of project. Plus all college network traffic passes through the FireEye Web MPS appliance without latency. Ranked by U.S. News as one of the top two master’s level colleges and universities in the North for thirteen consecutive years, Providence College sits on a picturesque hilltop campus two miles west of downtown Providence, Rhode Island, the state’s capital city. Just like any mainstream commercial enterprise, the college is tasked with protecting sensitive data; relating to its students, faculty, staff and research projects. “There is some very sensitive data within the Providence College environment, but with the FireEye Web MPS appliance we know that advanced malware never makes it onto our network undetected.” – Donald J. Schattle II, Information Security Officer, Providence College FireEye, Inc. | 1390 McCarthy Blvd. Milpitas, CA 95035 | 408.321.6300 | 877.FIREEYE (347.3393) | firstname.lastname@example.org | www.fireeye.com Case Study The Truth Can Be Scary Recognition of the limitations of tools acting solely on signatures catalyzed an extensive period of research for Don Schattle, Providence College’s Information Security Officer, that culminated in a pilot of the FireEye Web Malware Protection System. “What we immediately saw was extremely eye-opening! The FireEye appliance was catching malicious code that had previously entered our environment completely undetected,” He recalled. The FireEye Web Malware Protection System (MPS) appliance provides automatic, real-time blocking of next-generation Web malware. Inbound and outbound traffic is inspected to confirm and capture zero-day malware and targeted attacks. Risk is evaluated through the actual execution of suspected code in a full-featured virtual endpoint environment that precisely determines core intent. Schattle noted, “The inline installation of the FireEye Web MPS was a quantum leap forward for us. Not only will it detect and block a threat, it does so in a very elegant manner; the appliance immediately lets a user know why a Web page was not delivered.” The FireEye appliance sits directly behind the firewall and is the gateway to a 5,000+ node campus-wide network. Schattle observed, “It’s never a bottleneck for the network even though all of the college’s traffic passes through it. The significant processing power and throughput capabilities of the unit just make this a non-issue.” Schattle concluded, “Any device we deploy needs to deliver what was promised with a minimum of operator intervention and with a high level of reliability and autonomy: Our FireEye Web Malware Protection System 4000 Series appliance gives us exactly that.” Time is Money ”Early in the evaluation we meticulously tracked every single FireEye Web MPS-generated alert and found that in all cases, the notification was triggered by a real threat,” said Schattle. “We instantly saw that our current security platform had missed a variety of malicious code.” This accuracy allowed the college’s IT team to dramatically reduce the time and cost associated with the detection and eradication of malware threats. Key Component FireEye Web Malware Protection System 4000 Series appliance FireEye is the world leader in combating advanced malware, zero-day and targeted APT attacks that bypass traditional defenses, such as Firewalls, IPS, AV, and Web gateways! © 2011 FireEye, Inc.

Meeting the market requirements for silicon wafers with high flatness and minimal damage, which have become increasingly stringent in the face of highly integrated semiconductor devices, a fully automated surface grinding machine has been developed and introduced into the market, where it is making a contribution in high volume production lines in semiconductor plants. The background to the development and technologies used in the grinding machine are described and the product profile is presented. Key Words: silicon wafer, high flatness, low-damage grinding, high productivity, ultraprecision grinding, high loop rigidity, air spindle, nanolevel micro feed ... Against this backdrop, a 300mm-diameter wafer surface grinding machine model GCG300 has been developed based on the development technology for a 200mm-diameter wafer grinding machine manufactured to implement the grinding technology propelled under a cooperative project undertaken jointly by four companies, Komatsu Electronic Metals Co., (currently SUMCO TECHXIV Co.), Komatsu Corporate Research Division, Waida Mfg. Co. and Komatsu Machinery Corporation. The new model features high flatness and minimal damage. The grinding machine has been contributing to the production of 300mm wafers in high volume production processes since its market entry. The overview of the machine is described below. The integration of MPUs, memories and other semiconductor devices is further accelerated. This requires silicon wafers to be higher in flatness with minimal damage. The manufacturing process to meet these requirements has been researched. From the standpoint of securing a flatness of high accuracy before final polishing, prior research has shown that the introduction of a grinding process is an effective means to accomplish these tasks.

Horsemen’s Update This Issue’s Feature: Shoeing and Hoof Care horoughbred racehorses were bred for and are consistently acknowledged for their speed and track potential, but because of the demands of racing, the magnificent athletes’ feet need regular and proper care to help them stay sound and healthy. While this facet of Thoroughbred maintenance is near-obvious to most involved in the racing industry, the impact of foot problems on the welfare of the racehorse is anything but an inconsequential conversation piece. Thus, the importance of proper shoeing and hoof care is the focus of this month’s horsemen’s update. Photos courtesy of Mitch Taylor The Equine Hoof and the Problems it Faces forelimb suspensory apparatus failure.3 Shoeing can affect the flight of the hoof, which in turn influences the symmetry of the body.“If the angle (of the hoof) is allowed to remain incorrect, changes occur in the supporting structures as the body attempts to compensate. This compensation can lead to serious discomfort and lameness.”2 he condition of a horse’s feet is influenced by factors such as genetics, nutrition, environment, farriery and the use of the horse.1 The hoof has evolved to adapt to its environment, but the natural hoof should be rounded or slightly oval, containing an outer wall of specialized keratin cells to yield a hard protective surface. The hoof contains a sole to protect underlying tissues, as well as a frog and digital cushion for shock absorption. The short pastern (second phalanx), the coffin bone (third phalanx), and the navicular bone are the three bones inside the hoof. The hoof is supplied with fresh oxygenated blood, and the hydrostatic pumping of the foot helps to circulate blood back toward the heart from the limb periphery.2
