Press Release Summary: The Machinist Reveals Streamlining the Security Process via
Escape Velocity Systems

Press Release Body: The new feature article in the current issue of The Machinist
authored by manufacturing journalist, Thomas R. Cutler is titled: "Streamline the
security processes." Cutler discusses how technology solutions can guard malevolent
