Leonovus signs new contract

Canadian Bank Contracts Leonovus for Hyper-Secure Multi-Cloud Software-Defined Storage Solution

OTTAWASept. 20, 2018 /CNW/ – Leonovus Inc., (“Leonovus” or the “Company”) (TSXV: LTV) (OTC: LVNSF). On October 23, 2017, the Company announced that it had signed a proof of concept (“POC”) contract with a major Canadian bank. Leonovus is pleased to announce that it has signed a new contract with the bank to install its software in a production deployment.

Over the last ten months, Leonovus has successfully demonstrated the benefits, and the performance, of its secure object-based storage solution in the bank’s lab with non-production data. This contract marks the transition from a ten-month long laboratory test and verification process to an in-production deployment of the Leonovus software-defined storage solution into a major financial institution.  Leonovus will aggregate the institution’s on-premises storage resources with multiple subscribed public clouds to provide the data resiliency, security, and architecture necessary for the bank to benefit from the lower costs and the increased flexibility from this hybrid, multi-cloud, data storage strategy.

“Migrating the data storage of large enterprises from on-premises to the public-cloud, or hybrid-cloud, while providing a hyper-secure single storage gateway to these storage endpoints, is a key strategic objective of the Company’s technology. Enterprise customers, like the bank, can now easily use any public cloud solution without sacrificing corporate data governance, or controls, and benefit from significant cost savings while preventing cloud service provider or storage vendor lock-in. I would like to give kudos to the entire Leonovus team for the speed at which this project closed. To close an enterprise customer of this size from POC to production in ten months is extraordinary work,” said Michael Gaffney, Chairman, and CEO.

Leonovus Launches ‘Blockchain Evidence Locker’ Product for the Law Enforcement and Legal Markets

OTTAWASept. 13, 2018 /CNW/ – Leonovus Inc., (“Leonovus” or the “Company”) (TSXV: LTV) (OTC: LVNSF) announces a new product offering – the Blockchain Evidence Locker.  The Company is taking customer orders for trials in Q4 2018 and expects full deployment of this powerful solution in Q1 2019.

All law enforcement agencies and related organizations are faced with massive growth for storing digital evidence. This critical evidentiary information needs to remain true, tamperproof, and with a verifiable chain of custody. Car cams, body cams, CCTV, computers, and all forms of communication records, are driving this growth. Leonovus has developed the Blockchain Evidence Locker to address these needs.

The Blockchain Evidence Locker enables law enforcement organizations to address their storage requirements with confidence that their digital evidence remains available and cryptographically-verifiable. Leonovus’ patented algorithms encrypt, shred and spread data across a network of on-premises, hybrid or multi-cloud storage nodes – allowing for the most secure yet internally accessible form of object-based data storage that provides governance, risk management and compliance across the entire Blockchain Evidence Locker solution. The advanced distributed architecture minimizes latency, optimizes geo-availability, reduces remote backup costs and meets data sovereignty requirements.

Police forces, prosecutors and the courts are required to maintain a detailed chain of custody for all digital evidence. The Leonovus Blockchain Evidence Locker records all evidence submissions, supports access monitoring, reports on new evidence submissions along with update and deletion events. The Blockchain Evidence Locker is directly managed by the agency or police force giving them complete control over the process.

This solution allows authorized third-party organizations to access the evidence. Auditors can view and verify all digital activity regarding the evidentiary assets. This includes having a detailed audit of any changes to the information as well as having absolute knowledge about who has submitted, accessed, or updated the digital evidence.

“The Company has eight law enforcement and public safety agencies in its sales pipeline and we expect most of these agencies to start a paid trial product verification process. The Blockchain Evidence Locker has utility beyond the law enforcement and legal markets. Indeed, the GDPR regulations in Europe and the standard compliance requirements of many corporations demand that corporate data be managed much like an evidence locker,” said Michael Gaffney, Chairman & CEO.

Galaxa Marketplace ICO

Leonovus Announces Plans for an Initial Coin Offering for the GALAXA Marketplace

OTTAWA, Sept. 4, 2018 /CNW/ – Leonovus Inc., (“Leonovus” or the “Company”) (TSXV: LTV) announced today an update to its initial December 21, 2017 news release regarding plans for the launch of an Initial Coin Offering (“ICO”) for securities in the form of a contract called a Simple Agreement for a Future Token (“SAFT”). The Company plans to release the first draft of the GALAXA Whitepaper before the end of October and launch the ICO before the end of 2018.

The SAFT will convert into tokens called GAAX, which is the underlying cryptocurrency for the Anything as a Service (“XaaS”) marketplace called “GALAXA”. The Company is in discussions with the Launchpad team of the Ontario Securities Commission (“OSC”) for its support and the support of other Canadian securities administrators in developing GALAXA to ensure that the offering and issuance of GALAXA SAFTs are carried out in compliance with Canadian securities laws. The Company is also in discussions with the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV”) with a view to listing the GAAX SAFTs for trading.

“Leonovus is applying to the regulators and the stock exchange to make the GAAX SAFT a publicly tradable security on the TSX Venture Exchange. If approved, unlike most cryptocurrencies, the GAAX SAFT will become a regulated security with the requirement for continuous public disclosure. This transparency exceeds the disclosure to investors compared to most other cryptocurrencies,” said Michael Gaffney, Chairman, and CEO.

The current cloud storage and compute marketplace is an oligopoly and GALAXA intends to challenge this market concentration. Gartner predicts 40%+ compounded growth rates for enterprise data storage and compute. GALAXA’s blockchain technology is designed to manage this growth either in the cloud or on-premises and provide an open platform for developers to add new enterprise products/services.

The GALAXA protocol introduces a new blockchain architecture designed to accelerate the global development and implementation of XaaS offerings by independent developers that share a worldwide network of enterprise-grade distributed data storage and distributed compute assets.

Unlike the proposed technology of many ICO’s, much of the core technology for GALAXA is already designed, developed and deployed by Leonovus. Since it began operations in 2011, the Company has invested $26 million in the development of its geo-distributed software-defined storage and distributed compute software. Large portions of this technology are already in trials with Leonovus customers. This software is the essential foundation technology for GALAXA. Leonovus will provide free, perpetual licenses to GALAXA for this software, which should accelerate the development of XaaS applications by independent entrepreneurial developers.

The GALAXA hybrid blockchain protocol provides the governance, risk management and compliance required by large enterprises as they need to extend standard IT controls into distributed cloud applications.

The Company believes that GAAX is the first cryptography designed for the exchange of value between a corporate information technology buyer, an application service provider, and a storage/compute infrastructure supplier. The GALAXA ICO is a solution for the enterprise market – unlike most consumer-focused ICO’s.

Enterprise-class customers need a mechanism to discover, verify and use distributed services, be they cloud-based or on-premises, which meets their requirements for flexibility, efficiency, capability, security, and compliance. Similarly, the providers of these enterprise-class XaaS in the GALAXA Marketplace, need a cost-effective mechanism to make their services available, including verified capabilities and quality of service, for a broad vendor-neutral set of customers across multiple verticals and target markets. GALAXA ensures that the exchange of services and payments is simple, efficient and verified with a Proof of Provided Service consensus algorithm and scales to millions of transactions per second.

“The development of many new global software products and services requires the use of a token or coin as the measure of value for services delivered or services bought. Distributed everything, at the edge, will become the norm. Without the use of a token, operating and monitoring distributed storage and computing by humans is not economically feasible. However, as larger public and private corporations look for blockchain-based applications and services, they will expect regulation as trust is critical for these organizations. Leonovus intends to be at the forefront of global, trusted, tokenized applications,” said Gaffney.

It is expected that the planned ICO will include a public offering of SAFTs in Canada and a private placement offering of SAFTs to accredited investors in Canada and to equivalent investors in other jurisdictions in compliance with applicable securities laws of those jurisdictions. There can be no assurance that the Canadian securities administrators will provide a final receipt for the prospectus and there can be no assurance that the TSXV will accept the SAFTs for trading. Following the issue of SAFTs to investors, no GAAX Tokens will be issued pursuant to the SAFTs unless and until the Company successfully develops, builds, and launches the GALAXA Marketplace. The launch date is planned to occur within eighteen to twenty-four months after the close of financings. The ability to trade the GAAX Tokens will be subject to applicable securities and other laws and exchange rules at that time.

Leonovus signs 2nd federal government trial

Leonovus Announces 2nd Federal Government Trial & Sales Pipeline Update

OTTAWAAug. 14, 2018, /CNW/ – Leonovus Inc. (“Leonovus”) (TSXV: LTV) announces another major trial of Leonovus software for a Government of Canada (“GOC”) department.

This department, like many of our customers, is faced with both the preservation of and access to documents over an extended period. The critical requirements provided by the Leonovus solution include WORM (Write Once, Read Many), a blockchain-enabled digital chain of evidence, ultra-secure data storage, multi-cloud vendor management, control over where the data resides and avoiding storage vendor lock-in, which enables the department to take advantage of data storage pricing opportunities. As previously announced, Leonovus is in discussions with several Government of Canada departments. We expect more of these departments to install our unique ‘encrypt – shred – spread’ data storage technology with military-grade data durability by the end of the year.

Currently, there are fifty companies in the company’s sales pipeline with a gross annual revenue potential of more than $8M CAD. Applying a twenty-five percent sales probability model to these opportunities results in the potential for $2M in annual recurring revenues. The sales cycle is twelve to eighteen months, which means this revenue, except for current proof of concept invoices, would begin to appear in 2019. The current sales forecast includes only Canada and the USA.

“Going into the fall of 2018 we expect to increase the number of trial customers further and announce the conversion of our initial proof of concept (“POC”) customers into production customers. To date, we have been 100% successful in retaining POCs and expect most if not all to convert into production customers. Over the past six months, our primary investment was in product hardening and building out our marketing. I am very pleased with the sales funnel given that we only had two sales professionals on staff. We are currently increasing our sales staff and expanding our partner program. We believe we can increase our sales pipeline by a factor of five in the next twelve to eighteen months,” said Michael Gaffney, Chairman, and CEO.

Cryptographic nugget. What hackers would see

Leonovus hires Electronic Warfare Associates to manage cryptographic certification

Leonovus plans for FIPS 140-2 compliance certification in Q4 2018

OTTAWAMarch 28, 2018 /CNW/ – Leonovus Inc. (“Leonovus”) (TSXV: LTV) announces that Electronic Warfare Associates Inc. (“EWA”) of Ottawa, Ontario, and Herndon, Virginia, is under contract to advise and coordinate the Leonovus submission to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Washington, DC for the company to obtain FIPS 140-2 certification.  Leonovus would become one of the first companies in the world with embedded blockchain technology to receive FIPS 140-2 certification.

NIST created the FIPS 140-2 standard to coordinate the requirements and standards for cryptography modules. Protection of a cryptographic module within a security system is necessary to maintain the confidentiality and integrity of the information protected by the module. This standard specifies the security requirements that will be satisfied by such a module. The standard provides increasing, qualitative levels of security intended to cover a wide range of potential applications and environments. The security requirements cover areas related to the secure design and implementation of the cryptography. These areas include cryptographic module specification; cryptographic module ports and interfaces; roles, services, and authentication; key management; operational environment; finite state model; self-tests; design assurance; and mitigation of other attacks.

The FIPS 140-2 certification will enable Leonovus to sell its blockchain hardened software-defined storage solution into Canadian, U.S. governments and other regulated industries (such as financial and health-care institutions) that collect, store, transfer, share and disseminate sensitive but unclassified (SBU) information.

“Over the past nine months, Leonovus has maintained an internal audit cadence to meet the FIPS 140-2 certification standards. We are pleased to report that the company believes that it has achieved the requirements, based on internal testing.  EWA will help manage the whole certification process for the company and is confident that our software will be certified later in the year.  Many government agencies in the USACanada and around the world, require the FIPS 140-2 certification. Moreover, because of the robust requirements to meet the standard, enterprise customers also benefit. Our early sales traction with police and security agencies is accelerated because of our design and development to this standard”, said Michael Gaffney, Chair, and CEO.

Ottawa, Canada March 23, 2018 – Leonovus Inc. (“Leonovus”) (TSXV: LTV) announces that a proof of concept (“POC”) customer has purchased Leonovus 3.0, deploying it in their production environment.  With its intrinsic security, Leonovus 3.0 reduces their onboarding time of external customers from months to days, accelerating their time to revenue while enhancing their data security and improving their storage efficiencies by optimizing hybrid, multi-cloud storage architectures.

Leonovus is also pleased to announce four new proof of concept pilots with customers in Canada and the USA. Each of these trials is active, full customer engagement, with four different law enforcement and public safety customers.

“Converting our POC installations into production is a critical validation step for the company. We continue to progress on converting all our outstanding POCs into production deployments. The law enforcement market is an enormous opportunity for Leonovus. Data security with a chain of evidence capability is critical in this market.  When combined with the massive storage needs, with the growth of all digital evidence, example car and body cams, this market is perfect for the Leonovus blockchain hardened software-defined object storage solution”, said Michael Gaffney, Chair, and CEO.
