Edgecore Networks Launches the Work-from-Anywhere Solution to Facilitate the New Normal of Working Life

Edgecore Networks | December 22, 2021

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. Zero Touch Deployment Automated provisioning from central management with pre-configured network setup to edge devices without user intervention can improve reliability and minimize bring-up costs, while maintaining efficiency and flexibility on deployment. Adaptive WAN Selection The SDW-series provides parallel connections for load-balancing, failover, and traffic steering to ensure the high-quality and reliability of network connections. Container Management Containerized software that pushes container images to remote sites for consistent application performance and availability while reducing the connectivity cost. Remote VPN The remote worker can access the data center by PC VPN login with 4 simple steps, greatly reducing the remote office roll-out time. The future of work is work-from-anywhere. With Edgecore’s WFA solution, delivering an in-office experience to workers, wherever they are, isn’t a pipe dream. The flexibility and openness of the solution proactively prepares organizations for an ever-changing future.” TT Hsu, Vice President of Edgecore Networks About Edgecore Networks Edgecore Networks Corporation is a wholly owned subsidiary of Accton Technology Corporation, the leading networking ODM.

BlackBerry, Google and Qualcomm Join Forces to Drive Advancements in Next-Generation Automotive Cockpits

BlackBerry Limited | October 14, 2021

BlackBerry Limited announced the availability of a QNX Hypervisor and VIRTIO-based reference design to virtualize Android Automotive OS on the 3rd Generation Snapdragon Automotive Cockpit Platform, helping automakers to deliver the ultimate cockpit experience while accelerating time to market. The automotive industry is consolidating disparate in-cabin functionality such as digital instrument clusters, infotainment and heads-up display into unified digital cockpit architectures all running on a single, extremely powerful underlying system-on-chip (SoC). This mixed-criticality architecture tightens the integration between previously discrete in-cabin functionality to deliver a cockpit domain controller solution supporting a unified user experience for the consumer while simultaneously reducing overall cost. VIRTIO is an open standard that defines the interface between Android Automotive OS and the underlying hypervisor to deliver the full Android Automotive OS experience. The combination of the QNX Hypervisor and QNX's VIRTIO implementation allows Android Automotive OS to run out of the box without modification. This allows systems deployed in the field to easily upgrade to newer versions of Android Automotive OS as they are released. While the VIRTIO interface is standardized, the implementation of the interface is not. The BlackBerry QNX reference has been extended to support dynamic graphics sharing between Android Automotive OS applications in the infotainment domain and the digital instrument cluster, shared Vulkan drawstream support and system-wide audio management to holistically manage all sound within the vehicle. The BlackBerry QNX VIRTIO implementation adds 10 additional virtual devices to the existing 25 currently available in the QNX Hypervisor family of products. The QNX hypervisor-based reference design incorporates an infotainment system powered by Android Automotive OS and a digital instrument cluster virtualized by the QNX Hypervisor and running on a single Snapdragon Automotive Cockpit Platform. This architecture will also allow automotive manufacturers to enjoy the freedom from interference necessary to achieve safety certifications while delivering the full Android Automotive OS experience. The reference design demonstrates fast-boot and sharing of audio, graphics, video (camera), touchscreen, vehicle HAL sharing, USB and streaming video between the digital instrument cluster and the infotainment system powered by Android Automotive OS enabling Tier 1s and OEMs to deliver the ultimate cockpit experience. About BlackBerry BlackBerry provides intelligent security software and services to enterprises and governments around the world. The company secures more than 500M endpoints including 195M vehicles. Based in Waterloo, Ontario, the company leverages AI and machine learning to deliver innovative solutions in the areas of cybersecurity, safety, and data privacy solutions, and is a leader in the areas of endpoint security, endpoint management, encryption, and embedded systems.

Major Security Flaws Observed Zyxel VPN

Zyxel | January 05, 2021

At least a hundred thousand Zyxel devices have been delivered with a hardcoded admin-level backdoor account - a security bargain of the most noteworthy seriousness. The vulnerability, later affirmed by the company itself, was first spotted by cybersecurity researchers from Eye Control. According to their report, the hardcoded account can be utilized to gain root access to many of Zyxel's devices, some of which are utilized by ventures at the edge of their organizations. These incorporate firewalls, VPN gateways, and access point regulators. According to Eye Control, the account had root access to the gadget because it was being utilized to install firmware updates to other interconnected Zyxel devices through FTP. Whenever bargained, the affected devices could be utilized by criminals to launch DDoS attacks and ransomware operations, or as a venturing stone to facilitate more perplexing cyberattacks. Zyxel has already given patches for the Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) arrangements, Unified Security Gateway (USG) arrangement, USG Flex, and VPN arrangement, with a patch for the WLAN access point regulator NXC arrangement coming in April. Clients are advised to install the relevant patches, which eliminate the backdoor account. About Zyxel Focused on innovation and customer-centricity, Zyxel has been connecting people to the internet for nearly 30 years. We keep promoting creativity which meets the needs of customers.
