Current risks
Current Risks Directions

  • Audio eavesdropping

  • Trojans, viruses, and other malware

  • Data interception (e.g. email or text messages)

  • Spying using the Microphone, GPS, Bluetooth, WiFi, etc

  • Location Information; Tracking

  • Industrial Network Hacking

    • According to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, attacks on critical infrastructure jumped to 86 from 11 the same period a year ago (New York Times, March 13, 2012)

PCTEL SECURE™ Advantages Directions

  • Behavioral vs. Taxonomic Analysis

    • Not looking for specific threats, viruses, files, or patterns, but rather any behavior not allowed in the policy

  • Policies

    • Temporal in addition to cryptographic and other isolation methods

    • Sandboxing, virtualization, etc. cannot provide this level of isolation

  • Device Support

    • Moves easily to new devices without the re-engineering efforts involved in porting virtualization or hypervisor solutions

  • IP Protection

    • Three Patent Disclosures
