Our first webinar about Endian Management Center: get a preview of features and offers

From now on you can manage all your Endian installations in a more powerful way with our new Management Center:
it is the Endian Connect complement, adding true centralized management capabilities to fully control your Endian ecosystem.

Just configure once, and deploy everywhere.

 

Using device profiles, administrators can create a template of a configuration which can then be assigned to any device to replicate (with a simple “copy and paste” function”). You can also see your network in Real-Time with the live map feature, which is especially valuable within the Endian Management Center by providing a visual representation of your Endian global deployment.

Don’t miss our launch webinar: we will provide a complete overview of all Endian Management Center’s features and some special offers related to the launch.

Are you up to date with GDPR?
Discover what it is and how we can help you

GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation): what it is

GDPR is a European Regulation that, starting from May the 25th 2018, will rule data privacy laws across Europe, to protect and empower all EU citizens’ data privacy and to reshape the way organizations across the region approach data privacy.

To whom it is adressed

GDPR is addressed to all Companies and Entities that collect European citizens personal data.

What if my company is based outside UE?

It is also addressed to societies, companies, firms and bodies of extra EU Countries that deal with EU citizens’ data privacy.

I have to deal with it even if my servers are located outside UE

Yes.

What do we mean for “Personal Data”?

According to European Commission “personal data is meant as any information of an individual, related to his life either private, professional or public. It can be about everything: names, pictures, email addresses, bank details, website and social network’s activities, medical information or IP PC addresses”.

An overview of the main changes under GPDR and how they differ from the previous directive

  • The conditions for consent have been strengthened: consent must be clear and distinguishable and easily acces- sible form, using clear and plain language. It must be as easy to withdraw consent, as it is to give it
  • Wider Data Subject Rights, that expects:
    • Right to access data free of charge
    • Right to be Forgotten (also known as Data Erasure, the right to be forgotten entitles the data subject to have the data controller erase his/her personal data and cease further dissemination of the data
    • Right to edit data from the user side
  • Breach Notification will become mandatory and the owner of the data must be informed within 72 hours of first having become aware of the breach.
  • Impossibility to transfer data outside of EU Economic Territory without an explicit consent, unless specific conditions get applied.
  • Data Protection Officers. Each Public Entity, as well as Companies managing big size databases, must have a DPO (Data Protection Of- ficer) responsible of Data protection. It can be an internal or external figure.
  • Under GDPR, organizations in breach of GDPR can be fined up to €20 Million sanction, or 4% of annual global revenue.
  • Analysis of specific risks.Throughout the GDPR, organizations that control the processing of personal data are encouraged to implement protective measures corresponding to the level of risk
of their data processing activities. Although the GDPR is silent on how organizations should assess and quantify risk, certain trends emerge from the sections where risk does appear that will guide organizations in implementing a risk-based approach.
  • Proportionality of obligations, which are now more modu- lated to adapt to the size of the owner and to the danger- ousness of the treatment.

How can we help you? From A to Z.

The aim of the GDPR is to protect all EU citizens from privacy and data breaches in an increasingly data-driven world: it is clearly required to adopt the best available technologies to defend and secure its own network.

It is then needed to adopt solutions able to protect data from the beginning of the transmission, that set network administrators aware of potential risks and that promptly react to threats. Endian feature-suite is a complete solution including all the needed tools to allow you to prevent, protect and control.

Encrypted tunnel (VPN) to set your sensitive data transmission safe

Endian includes in all its products advanced systems of transmission data’s encryption, with different layers of simplified management, that al- lows to organize users and objects in an easy way, minimizing the risk of human error. In order to have a constant control of what happens in your network, as requested from GDPR, the first rule is to know who has access to different resources and be able to identify when he did it. Thanks to Endian Connect Platform, you can authorize and remove permissions in a granular but simple way, even in worldwide spread networks.

WPA2 Vulnerability (KRACK): please update your Endian WiFi appliance

A serious weaknesses in WPA2, a protocol that secures all modern protected Wi-Fi networks, has been discovered. An attacker within range of a victim can exploit these weaknesses using key reinstallation attacks (KRACKs). Concretely, attackers can use this novel attack technique to read information that was previously assumed to be safely encrypted. This can be abused to steal sensitive information such as credit card numbers, passwords, chat messages, emails, photos, and so on. The attack works against all modern protected Wi-Fi networks. Depending on the network configuration, it is also possible to inject and manipulate data. For example, an attacker might be able to inject ransomware or other malware into websites (https://www.krackattacks.com for more details).

Which Endian products are affected?
UTM Mini WiFi Series

How to fix your Endian?
Just update your appliance to the latest release. Using Endian Network you can easily update all your customer appliances in a single click, providing security fixes and updates to all your managed networks.

RECOMMENDED: patch your WiFi clients (smartphone, notebook, etc) with the latest update from vendors, in order to completely remove your exposure to this attack ( https://github.com/kristate/krackinfo#vendor-response-complete )
