We Confuse The Bad Guys And Get An Award For Doing It
By: Delia J. Smith
Dispersive wins AFCEA’s Defensive Cyber Innovation Award for our network obfuscation techniques that hide and protect data.
On April 25, the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association (AFCEA) honored Dispersive Technologies in a special way.
The association awarded us with its annual Innovation Award at the AFCEA Defensive Cyber Operations Seminar.
Admittedly, competition was stiff. We were up against more than 60 other entries. We won the award because of our unique ability to obfuscate, hide, and protect data and messages quickly and efficiently as they traverse the Internet.
We are excited not just about receiving the award, but also about what it represents. It indicates a growing realization of just how important secure communications are, why they are becoming harder to find and, most importantly, how and why Dispersive can provide both secure communications and fast network performance.
Our patented approach to software-defined networking allows our products to outperform VPNs, be more reliable than MPLS, and implement frequency-hopping techniques on the Internet that were previously found only in military radios.
We welcome the chance to talk with you about making your network communications faster, more reliable, and more secure. Email us at email@example.com or call (844) 403-5852.
Critical Infrastructure On Edge: Colonial Pipeline Is Only the Latest Example of the Massive Risks Associated with Attacks
This past week Colonial Pipeline company, which operates a pipeline that carries gasoline, diesel fuel, and natural gas along a 5,500-mile path from Texas to New Jersey, was forced to take itself offline after being attacked by a criminal cyber gang. The pipeline, which carries 2.5 million barrels a day, nearly 50% of the East Coast supply of diesel, gasoline, and jet fuel, is still working to restore service and gain access to their systems after the malicious cyberattack, while its four mainlines remain offline.
Financial Services Companies Struggle With The Work from Home Digital Perimeter With Serious Cyber Attacks on the Rise
When pandemic lockdowns turned many jobs into work-from-home almost overnight, some industries experienced relatively seamless transitions; however, the banking industry was not one of them. These institutions were forced to pivot from traditional office environments, but the switch to remote working came with an abundance of challenges, the most serious being cybersecurity.
With physical retail re-opening, large retailers with hundreds or thousands of locations are rethinking their security strategies, especially when it comes to Point-of-Sale (POS) systems.
Retailers need reliable, resilient networks, as downtime leads to slow checkout lines and unhappy customers.
