The new features are designed to give organisations access to threat data and analytics specific to their overall organisation, offering a more granular view of the attacks Mimecast has blocked. The Mimecast Threat Intelligence dashboard highlights end-users who are most at-risk, malware detections, malware origin by geo-location, Indicators of Compromise (IoCs), and malware forensics based on static and behavioural analysis. 

This offers customers a community-based, tailored threat intelligence that is specific to their organisation. The data is consolidated into a user-friendly view and is also available for integration into an organisation’s security ecosystem through the Threat Feed API. This targeted threat intelligence provides greater visibility and insight to security professionals, enabling them to more easily respond and remediate against threats and malicious files.

The cybersecurity landscape changes daily, and attackers are constantly changing their techniques to avoid detection. According to Mimecast’s recent The State of Email Security Report 2019, 94 percent of organisations saw phishing attacks in the last 12 months and 61 percent said it was likely or inevitable that they would be hit with an email-borne attack. IT and security teams are often overwhelmed by the volume of information they need to track and if the intelligence they need to proactively defend their organisation is buried, their defence becomes less effective.

“As the threat landscape evolves, arming our organisation and people with the best possible tools is more important now, than ever,” says Thomas Cronkright, CEO of CertifID. “Mimecast’s Threat Intelligence is an easy to use value-added service that provides an outstanding benefit to organisations in search of a secure ecosystem.”

“The cyber threat landscape is dynamic, complex and driven by a relentless community of adversaries,” says Josh Douglas, vice president of threat intelligence at Mimecast. “IT and security teams need threat intelligence that is easy to digest and actionable, so they can better leverage the information to proactively prevent and defend against cyberattacks. Mimecast sees a lot of data, as we process more than 300 million emails every day to help customers block hundreds of thousands of malicious emails. Mimecast Threat Intelligence helps organisations get the deep insights they need to build a more cyber-resilient environment.”

Mimecast Threat Intelligence consists of a Threat Dashboard, Threat Remediation and Threat Feed with Threat Intelligence APIs that each delivers a range of capabilities including:

  • A dashboard that is designed to present information specific to each customer in a user-friendly view that gives them greater visibility and control over their security environment. The dashboard highlights end-users who are most at-risk, malware detections, malware origin by geo-location, IoCs and malware forensics based on static and behavioural analysis.
  • Threat Remediation that can be accessed directly through the Mimecast Administration Console, removing messages that contain malicious content from view, and restoring messages when necessary. 
  • The Mimecast Threat Feed which is delivered through the threat intelligence API and threat remediation API providing organisations with the ability to deliver threat intelligence directly into their broader security eco-system, including SIEMs, SOARs, next-generation firewalls, and end-point protection. Threat Intelligence APIs also help to identify and counter potential attacks and offer up remediation capabilities through the same portal by providing aggregated threat data across 35,000 Mimecast accounts, so that each individual customer can benchmark themselves against a range of company types in their geographic region, thereby offering a clearer view of threats.

The Mimecast Threat Dashboard and Threat Feed are value-added capabilities for customers with Mimecast’s Secure Email Gateway. Threat Remediation is available to customers who also have Mimecast Internal Email Protect.

Wearable adapts body to stress

Apollo Neuroscience has introduced the first wearable that actively helps one’s body beat stress, for better sleep and energy.

Published

on

While other wearables track the body, Apollo is the first to empower its users to change it by delivering gentle waves of vibration, clinically shown to rapidly restore the  body’s natural equilibrium.

Developed by physicians and neuroscientists at the University of Pittsburgh, Apollo’s gentle waves of vibration improve heart rate variability (HRV), a key metric of health and recovery. These “safety signals” help engage the parasympathetic nervous system, resulting in improved heart rate variability (HRV), sleep, focus, calm, energy, and more. Apollo says it works fast to offer users control over their stress.

“Chronic daily stress can have a profound, disruptive effect on our bodies and result in harmful symptoms including insomnia, anxiety-disorders, chronic pain, cognitive dysfunction, and cardiovascular disease,” says Dr David Rabin, co-inventor of the Apollo technology and chief innovation officer and co-founder at Apollo Neuroscience. “Apollo is the only technology that actually improves HRV and accelerates your body’s recovery from stress so you can feel energised, focused, and sleep better.”

Apollo works in tandem with an intuitive app for iOS and Android. Users can choose from a variety of Apollo programs to target and achieve goals in specific areas, including:

  •  Energy – Gives users a boost of energy when they’re feeling tired and sluggish.
  •  Focus – Filters out distraction and settles one’s nerves for clear, calm focus.
  •  Mindfulness – Prepares one for meditation by facilitating connection between mind and body.
  •  Relaxation – Rapidly relieves stress for deep relaxation.
  •  Sleep – Quiets the mind and eases one into restful sleep.
  •  Social – Elevates mood and energy for social situations.
  •  Recover – Accelerates one’s body’s recovery after a workout.

Apollo has been evaluated clinically in university-led trials, has undergone successful pilots to prevent burnout in the workplace, and has had over 2000 early users, with consistent results across the board. Over 90 percent of users reported enhanced productivity, focus and sleep when using Apollo.

“Many devices track your HRV and monitor your sleep, but do nothing to improve them. That’s where Apollo comes in,” says Kathryn Fantauzzi, chief executive officer and co-founder, Apollo Neuroscience. “We’re delivering the first wearable experience that actively improves your body’s resilience to stress, so you can have more energy, feel more relaxed, and get more sleep. Apollo’s mission is to democratize neuroscience discoveries to empower people to take control of their health.”

Apollo is made in the USA and comes with a one-year warranty. It features a versatile design that can be worn on the wrist or ankle and is available in 2 colors: stealth and silver. Apollo is waterproof, Bluetooth-enabled, and offers a powerful battery with up to three days in between charges.

Apollo is now available for preorder for an all-inclusive price of $199(for a $360 value). Customers receive the Apollo wearable along with access to the free app with seven goal-based programs, new features and software upgrades, exclusive content, and advanced access to new accessories and exclusive discounts. Shipping of the Apollo wearable will commence in January 2020.

Apollo can be purchased directly at apolloneuro.com.

Huawei launches WiFi router with powerline connectivity

The new router by Huawei, the WiFi Q2 Pro, features PLC Turbo technology that sends data signal over power lines for more signal in one’s home.

Published

on

Huawei has launched a new Wi-Fi router, the Huawei WiFi Q2 Pro, which is the first hybrid home PLC (power line connectivity) and Wi-Fi System. This router reduces common problems experienced with other Wi-Fi routers, such as weak signal strength, poor coverage and slow connection speeds. 

The Huawei WiFi Q2 Pro three-pack hybrid utilises both mesh Wi-Fi technology and PLC turbo technology – which combines the best of both worlds. This hybrid consists of a main station and two secondary routers. The secondary stations can be plugged into a wall socket anywhere around the home to cover areas of poor signal and bring full-speed broadband to that location.

Wide-reaching connectivity with PLC Turbo technology

The PLC Turbo technology differs from traditional PLC modems, as it has a three-pin plug, which means the modem is less affected by electromagnetic interference from other household appliances. The Q2 Pro can also monitor interference from neighbouring Wi-Fi networks in real time and automatically switch the user’s Wi-Fi network to channels with the least interference.

In addition, PLC networking addresses the issue that Wi-Fi signal strength decreases significantly when it passes through walls, as PLC networking does not have to go through walls. This can help maintain excellent broadband speeds of up to 200Mps in every corner of the home, reducing frustrations related to a loss of signal and intermittent Wi-Fi coverage when moving around your house. 

Simply plug and play for full coverage

The router can be configured through the use of the Huawei AI Life app. Users can plug in the device, and the WiFi Q2 Pro’s secondary routers will automatically sync the Wi-Fi network’s name and password from the base router, ensuring an easier set up.

Users with very large homes, such as bed and breakfast establishments for example, also have the option to further improve the coverage by purchasing additional satellites. One HUAWEI WiFi Q2 Pro base can support up to 15 secondary routers simultaneously. 

Triple security protection

It also has advanced security features to protect the user’s home from hackers or people who want to covertly use their Wi-Fi. If someone attempts to crack the user’s Wi-Fi password using brute force cracking software, the router will recognise it and automatically blacklist them.

The router also has a Guest Wi-Fi feature, which operates on a completely different channel to a user’s main Wi-Fi network. This protects a user’s main Wi-Fi connection, as it uses a different SSID and password. Users can also disable their guest Wi-Fi network when their guests leave.

The Huawei WiFi Q2 Pro three-pack hybrid is available for R4,999.
