Coronet Offers First of a Kind Protection Against KRACK

Tel Aviv, Israel, October 19, 2017 –(PR.com)– Coronet, an award-winning cloud security company, confirmed today it is the first to offer protection against KRACK, (short for Key Reinstallation Attacks), a newly exposed vulnerability in the WPA2 protocol, which serves as the standard for securing most Wi-Fi connections. Left unaddressed, an attacker can exploit a Man-in-the-Middle (MITM) position and circumvent existing WPA / WPA2 protections, creating a window and access to corporate data for both data stream inspection and packet injection.

The KRACK exploit was exposed earlier this week by Belgian researchers who issued a report disclosing the vulnerability. It immediately raised a widespread 5-alarm panic due to the scale and reach of this key exploit of WPA2-based Wi-Fi networks. The researchers describe that a cyber hacker executing a multi-stage attack can circumvent built-in protections into these commonly used Wi-Fi protocols. While most key endpoint vendors (Microsoft, Google, Apple) are working on patches to address KRACK, the expected patch rollout gives cyber hackers a golden hour opportunity, enabling them to execute these attacks. It is important to note that endpoints and IoT devices which are not able to receive the critical patch updates will remain vulnerable indefinitely.

Who is vulnerable?
While any unpatched device connecting to the WPA or WPA2 protocol is vulnerable (see related chart), the largest attack surface are devices running Android 6.0 and higher, representing 48% of all Android devices (approximately 1 billion devices). This select group along with Linux (WPA_supplicant versions 2.4 and 2.5) have a bug that installs an all-zero encryption key (KT), practically exposing these OSes to all vulnerabilities — in both directions. Some of these Android devices may not be patchable, and as such will remain vulnerable to cyber hackers.

Coronet’s cloud security platform is the only available solution in the market that can protect devices from this vulnerability, eliminating the risk — regardless of the patch availability. The platform’s network detection and mitigation layer not only identifies a KRACK attack but also automatically mitigates the threat. The solution identifies threats, risks and issues remediation actions immediately, ensuring end-to-end, outside the perimeter security. All data is protected whether in transit or at rest across four key pillars: users, device, network, and services. Coronet’s security platform offers a real solution to KRACK immediately without having to wait for patch updates to be issued.

Tango Networks Collaborates with Samsung to Deliver Secure, Compliant Mobile Unified Communications to U.S. Enterprises

San Francisco, CA, October 19, 2017 –(PR.com)– Tango Networks™, a leading provider of full-featured enterprise mobile communication solutions, and Samsung Electronics America, Inc. are collaborating to deliver secure and compliant mobile Unified Communications (UC) solutions to enterprises.

The collaboration focuses on delivering a solution that combines Samsung’s smartphones and Knox security and management capabilities with the Kinetic Communications mobile UC platform from Tango Networks. The Kinetic platform is being demonstrated by Tango Networks this week at the Samsung Developer Conference in San Francisco.

The combined solution turns Samsung mobile phones into feature-rich extensions of an enterprise’s communications system. It enables companies to extend business communications features – such as call recording, compliance policy enforcement and workforce optimization (WFO) capabilities – to their users’ Samsung mobile phones.

Operating in conjunction with mobile device management processes, the combined solution maximizes security and compliance to fully lock down mobile devices, including personal devices in Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) environments. The Knox solution helps ensure device and application integrity to protect corporate data while the Kinetic platform further enhances security and enforces compliance policies on phone calls and text communications.

This maximizes the benefits of workforce mobility while enabling enterprises to maintain control, ensure quality, and strengthen information security practices.

“Enterprises are going ‘mobile first’ and making the most of the flexibility and efficiency of mobile communications,” said Lathan Lewis, Chief Strategy Officer, Tango Networks. “But these enterprises must also ensure that communications on these devices are compliant with privacy, quality and other requirements. With Samsung, we are producing a mobile UC solution that unlocks the power of enterprise mobility while providing uncompromising security and compliance capabilities on both corporate liable and BYOD devices.”

Tango’s Kinetic platform provides deep integration with communications solutions from all major UC vendors and allows users on Samsung mobile phones to benefit from the same productivity-enhancing functionality as desk-phone extensions. The combined solution offers a simple and intuitive user experience for activating business communications features on Samsung phones.

Samsung Knox enables corporate data and personal data on Samsung phones to be separated and isolated from each other. Tango’s Kinetic platform complements the Knox solution with powerful identity management features that tie business calls and texts to the enterprise’s corporate number, while personal calls and texts are handled separately and remain private.

The Kinetic platform enables IT managers to enforce policies on mobile devices using their existing monitoring, recording, logging, archiving, WFO and quality assurance systems, ending the common “blind spot” that these systems have for mobile devices. Mobile call recording integration partners include ASC, Citycom Solutions, Cognia, Enghouse Networks, GWAVA (Micro Focus), Red Box Recorders and Verint.

The platform also permits mobile communications to be automatically logged in applications such as Customer Relationship Management systems, including Salesforce.

“Today’s ‘always-on’ business world demands communications that are highly mobile, yet highly secure,” said Nick Rea, Vice President, Mobility Innovations division, Samsung Electronics America. “We’re pleased to work with Tango Networks to help companies hit the perfect balance of mobility and security with a solution that helps expand a company’s Unified Communications footprint, while increasing policy enforcement and security for their mobile enterprise users.”
