Edgecore Networks, a leading provider of traditional and open network solutions for enterprises, data centers, and telecommunication service providers, announced the launch of the Work-from-Anywhere (WFA) solution to provide organizations a plug-and-play, secure, agile, reliable mechanism to deliver enterprise-grade services to their remote workers. The trend of making offices a place for collaboration has been going on for years, but the COVID-19 pandemic has shifted the dial. Social distancing requirements across the world have prompted thousands of companies and millions of employees to discover the benefits of a flexible work environment. This shift to remote work and hybrid workspace forces organizations to take a more systematic and strategic approach to connecting remote workers to applications and data. Traditional WAN connections over MPLS tend to be rigid, costly, and provide deployment connections that cannot easily adapt to today's dynamic networking needs. Edgecore's WFA solution includes feature-rich SD-WAN devices, the SDW-series, addressing those networking issues and provides robust, secure, adaptive network services on demand. WFA Solution Key Features Central Management Multiple options for central management:\ VM in x86 appliance based VM in cloud platform Edgecore ecCLOUD Administrator can monitor and auto-adjust remote networks with real-time feedback from premises and deploy pre-configured network paths to remote sites.

OpenSynergy Works with Google and Qualcomm to Deliver Virtualized Android Automotive OS Reference Platform

OpenSynergy | September 08, 2021

OpenSynergy introduced today the company's new automotive reference platform for virtual Android™ 11 (based on Trout). With technology from Google and Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., the reference platform features the integration of the Virtual I/O (VIRTIO) framework into Android Automotive OS, which allows Android to run on any hypervisor supporting the upcoming VIRTIO devices and any system on chip (SoC). The reference platform contains Android 11, a board support package (BSP) from Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., and the VIRTIO-based COQOS Hypervisor SDK, all of which are running on a Snapdragon® Automotive Development Platform (ADP). VIRTIO is an established virtualization standard maintained by the OASIS Open consortium that provides a device sharing framework for devices such as Block, Network, Console, graphics processing unit (GPU), Input, etc. As active members of the consortium, OpenSynergy and Google have worked to expand the scope of the open standards in the automotive domain. As there are missing automotive-specific VIRTIO devices, the two companies are working within the OASIS consortium to close the gap. Furthermore, the collaboration between OpenSynergy and Google aims to allow flexibility to automakers and Tier-1 suppliers to switch between SoCs and hypervisors to best match their needs. The reference platform showcases an Android Automotive OS-based Cockpit Domain Controller (CDC) architecture. Similar to other CDCs, the underlying hypervisor guarantees the secure coexistence of Android (typically a QM system) with systems of higher criticality, such as the real-time OS displaying the telltales on an Instrument Cluster (typically ASIL B). The novelty lies in deploying a fully virtualized Android Automotive OS (Trout), i.e., an Android version with no dependencies on the hardware. Instead of directly accessing the hardware devices, Android accesses these devices using the standardized VIRTIO framework provided by the underlying virtual platform. A fully virtualized Android Automotive OS can easily be ported onto any hardware supported by the underlying virtual platform. In the case of the COQOS Hypervisor SDK, the hardware is any automotive relevant ARMv8-A-based SoC. The clean architectural separation introduced by VIRTIO makes updating Android and the BSP easy. The reference platform and the usage of virtualized Android Automotive OS were showcased over the last year in several promotional events. Now, customers can access it and develop their specific applications on it. The released reference platform is intended only for research and pre-development purposes and not for series production. Customers can acquire the Snapdragon ADP through Qualcomm Technologies' distribution channels. The reference platform software is now available at OpenSynergy. Jonathan Siegel, Portfolio Manager of OpenSynergy: "It has been an honor to work with Google and Qualcomm Technologies on such a game-changing project for the automotive industry. After intense years of development, the day has come in which we at OpenSynergy are finally releasing the virtual Android Automotive OS reference platform to the community. We are confident that this will ignite a new dynamic features we did not think of will be developed; easier deployment processes will be implemented. And we look forward to what comes next for VIRTIO-based Android. The community will guide us!"

Ransomware Study: Two Thirds of Security Professionals Believe Ransomware and Terrorism Threats are Equal

Venafi | December 27, 2021

Venafi, the inventor and leading provider of machine identity management, announced the findings of a global survey of more than 1,500 IT security decision makers that reveals that almost two-thirds (60%) of security almost two-thirds (60%) believe ransomware threats should be prioritized at the same level as terrorism. These opinions echo the U.S. Department of Justice, which raised the threat level of ransomware following the Colonial Pipeline attack earlier this year. The study also found that less than one-third of respondents have implemented basic security controls that break the ransomware kill chain. Other key findings include: Over two thirds (67%) of respondents from organizations with more than 500 employees experienced a ransomware attack over the last 12 months—a figure that rises to 80% for respondents from organizations with 3,000-4,999 employees. Over a third (37%) of respondents would pay the ransom but more than half of these (57%) would reverse that decision if they had to publicly report the payment, as required by the Ransomware Disclosure Act, a U.S. Senate bill that would require companies to report ransomware payments within 48 hours. Despite the rising number of ransomware attacks, more than three-quarters (77%) say they are confident the tools they have in place will protect them from ransomware attacks. Australian IT decision makers have the most confidence in their tools (88%), compared with 71% in the U.S. and 70% in Germany. Twenty two percent believe paying a ransom to be “morally wrong.” Seventeen percent of those breached admitted they paid the ransom, with U.S. respondents paying most often (25%) and Australian companies paying least often (9%). The fact that most IT security professionals consider terrorism and ransomware to be comparable threats tells you everything you need to know; these attacks are indiscriminate, debilitating and embarrassing. Unfortunately, our research shows that while most organizations are extremely concerned about ransomware, they also have a false sense of security about their ability to prevent these devastating attacks. Too many organizations say they rely on traditional security controls like VPNs and vulnerability scanning instead of modern security controls, like code signing that are built-in to security and development processes.” Kevin Bocek, Vice President ecosystem and threat intelligence at Venafi The study shows that most organizations are not using security controls that break the ransomware kill chain early in the attack cycle. Many ransomware attacks start with phishing emails that include a malicious attachment—but just 21% restrict the execution of all macros within Microsoft Office documents. Less than a fifth (18%) of companies restrict the use of PowerShell using group policy, and only 28% require all software to be digitally signed by their organization before employees are allowed to execute it. About the research Conducted by Sapio Research, Venafi’s survey evacuated the opinions of 1,506 IT security officers across the U.K., Australia, France, Germany, Benelux and the U.S. About Venafi Venafi is the cybersecurity market leader in machine identity management, securing machine-to-machine connections and communications.
