Lunavi, Genesis Consulting Partners, LLC | September 30, 2021

Lunavi, a leading provider of cloud solutions, Agile software development, and IT consulting, has partnered with Genesis Consulting to provide development services for the State of Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) iServe Nebraska Portal for citizen benefits.

The project focuses on agile application development using cross-functional teams integrated with State of Nebraska employees to create a new and enhanced web portal to process healthcare, economic assistance, and disability benefit applications. This solution will improve public access, outcomes, cost, accountability, and quality of DHHS services through an integrated, consumer-centric application.

"Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services is looking towards the future with the iServe project to improve the public experience when engaging with governmental health programs, We're proud to partner with Genesis and DHHS to achieve the goals of this program. As other State organizations seek to modernize their benefits programs, they will see the iServe portal as a blueprint to follow."

said Lunavi CEO and Chairman Sam E. Galeotos.

DHHS oversees numerous services throughout Nebraska, including Medicaid and Long-Term Care, Developmental Disabilities, Public Health, Behavioral Health and Children and Family Services. The new cloud-based service will provide a user-friendly and streamlined experience for Nebraska citizens to access and request Federal and State benefit programs through DHHS.

"The skillset of Lunavi's software delivery teams aligned perfectly with our expertise and capabilities to help deliver the vision for the iServe Nebraska Portal, Our team is confident that this project will benefit the citizens of Nebraska. By implementing human-centered design, agile development, and continuous improvement processes within DHHS, the State can respond faster to changing demands and offer a vastly improved experience for the public as well as internal government stakeholders who must track trends, analyze data, and administer crucial civic services."
said Jason Fair, CEO of Genesis Consulting.
 

Lunavi has previously worked with government agencies at state, regional, and municipal levels to provide critical IT infrastructure and technology consulting projects for a wide range of applications. With HIPAA compliant services and an extensive background working with healthcare agencies, the DHHS project is backed by real-world experience.

"Our Application Development and Cloud Services teams are helping us win new customers within public services, government, healthtech, and similar industries that not only provide indispensable services, but must deliver those services in a highly accessible and highly secure manner," said Galeotos. "We look forward to proving our capabilities and improving the lives of constituents in Nebraska and beyond through this innovative new portal."

Lightspin Launches Free AWS Cloud Security Tool to Reveal Publicly Exposed Cloud Assets on Any Domain

Lightspin | April 06, 2022

Lightspin, the next-generation cloud security platform, today announced the first free AWS cloud security tool that scans any and all domains to reveal publicly exposed cloud assets.Recon.Cloud is a free AWS cloud threat intelligence resource that provides a clear view of any domain's current exposure from an attacker's perspective. Users will have vastly greater visibility into and increased transparency of their publicly exposed assets. Attack surface management is a rising challenge of cloud migrations. Gartner predicts that, through 2025, 99% of breaches in cloud environments will come as a result of human error, such as misconfiguration of cloud roles, permissions, and policies. Existing subdomain enumeration tools do not provide the granular specifics for cloud environments. Unlike other tools, Recon.Cloud scans provide a full picture of an AWS environment with all AWS metadata accessible within the user interface. Users can then easily export their results via a JSON file or incorporate their findings into the Lightspin platform to see even more contextual risk within their broader attack surface. With Recon.Cloud, we are helping to solve the issue of poor visibility in cloud environments. Recon.Cloud is specifically designed to focus on only the pertinent publicly exposed cloud assets in a domain. DevOps and red team members can use Lightspin's free and easy-to-use threat intelligence tool for an in-depth picture of their AWS environment with the option of exporting and analysis just one click away. It also allows security operations to scan targets for research or to better understand recent acquisitions during threat modeling." Gafnit Amiga, Director of Security Research at Lightspin. About Lightspin Lightspin's next-gen cloud security posture management (CSPM) platform protects cloud and Kubernetes environments from build to runtime and simplifies cloud security for security and DevOps teams. Using advanced graph-based technology, Lightspin prioritizes risks across the cloud environment focusing security efforts on the critical issues that matter most. Lightspin serves Fortune 500 customers across the globe and is headquartered in Tel Aviv, Israel with offices in New York, NY.
