Second Order from Operator
Israel’s Assac Networks has announced the award of an order from a GCC government entity for its ShieldIT solution – a unique approach to managing secure communications over existing infrastructure. The order is the second from the same operator, for whom initial system installations are already under way, the company announced on 1 December. The ShieldIT system is the only app that provides full protection of satellite, IP and wireless communications, against both hacking and tapping.
Smartphones are constantly exposed to cyber threats, both hacking – data theft, malicious software or use of the device as a backdoor into corporate networks, and tapping – eavesdropping, either via the access network or the switch. ShieldiT is the only solution with a unified, managed anti-hacking and anti-tapping capability for Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) smartphones, which today are the most vulnerable point in an organization’s IT network.
ShieldiT comprises three steps: threat management – robust and AI-powered, with a user-friendly dashboard; anti-hacking – detection and prevention of cyberattacks, data theft and malware; and anti-tapping – point-to-point, military-grade voice and text message encryption and eavesdropping prevention. The unified ManageiT management dashboard centrally controls all ShieldiT features. The synergy of ManageiT and ShieldiT enables corporations to control and conduct incident response from the management console.
The unique offering of this project enables the user freedom of smartphone use, whether via satellite, wireless or fixed IP; controlled in a single management environment; quick and easy integration into existing IT infrastructure; fully-controlled encryption with autonomous CA; high-level cyber protection with on-device decision capability; unique built-in unauthorized movement sensor; and cost-effective, high performance.
“The client’s continued use of the Assac app to further cyber protection on its mobile devices indicates their full confidence in the system and its unique capabilities. Deployed on the organization’s existing infrastructure – unlike solutions based on radio communication – ShieldiT provides a new security layer, while enabling the client to save considerable resources. We are proud that the company’s customers, both in the corporate and governmental sectors, find ShieldiT to be effective in protecting their organizations from cyberattacks,” commented Assac Networks’ CEO, Shimon Zigdon.
