Organizations are now more than ever dependent on employees connecting from uncontrolled home and public networks to do their jobs. Unfortunately, these networks are “dirty” and risky to connect to. VPNs only protect data in transit between users and corporate networks; they do nothing to prevent the spread of malware or the other risks associated with connecting to these networks. In fact, Byos has identified the “Dirty Half Dozen” attacks that must be protected from, including:

  • Scanning, Enumerating, and Fingerprinting

  • Eavesdropping

  • Remote Access Exploits

  • Evil-Twin Wi-Fi

  • Lateral Network Infections

  • DNS hijacking

The patent-pending Byos μGateway is a hardened, embedded security stack on a small USB device that solves this problem by isolating each endpoint onto its own unique network micro-segment of one, protecting it from compromised networks and other compromised endpoints on the network. Byos allows employees, contractors and devices to safely and securely connect to any network, regardless of their location or network environment.

Easily Deploy, Manage, and Secure Every Remote Network Connection

Combined with the µGateway, the Byos Endpoint Micro-Segmentation Solution has a centralized Management Console giving IT and security teams a simpler, more efficient approach to security policy definition, enforcement, and management.

The Byos Management Console allows IT teams to deploy and centrally manage Byos μGateways at scale and provides full visibility and control over all

Making Developer’s Lives Easier as We Enter The New Frontier of Dependency Management

Fulton, Md., Oct. 07, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Sonatype, the company that scales DevOps through open source governance and software supply chain automation, today unveils its breakthrough Advanced Development Pack that fundamentally changes how teams manage code dependencies. Designed after studying development and cybersecurity hygiene practices across 30,000 software teams, this new offering available to Nexus Lifecycle customers, ensures developers select the highest quality OSS components that are used to build 90% of a modern application.

The Advanced Development Pack’s pioneering dependency management enables developers to choose components based on project quality, ease-of-upgrade, and advanced knowledge of abnormal committer behavior, giving them confidence they’ve chosen the highest quality component available. It helps developers understand:

  • the cost of migrating to a newer or safer version and whether it is possible to do so without breaking their code

  • the performance of OSS projects they are choosing when it comes to release frequency, cadence of dependency updates, development team size, and popularity – helping guide choices to a higher quality pool of components

  • the frequency in which dependencies have become vulnerable and are remediated – helping them better grasp the cost and threat of relying on such packages

  • when suspicious behavior has been observed in project code commits – providing an early warning to malicious injection attacks from adversaries

With more than 67% of developers regularly impacted when dependency upgrades break the functionality of their application, Sonatype’s Advanced Development Pack removes the guesswork, and tells developers exactly which dependencies provide the least costly upgrade path in terms of

Arlo Introduces Pro 4 Security Camera With Easier Wi-Fi Setup, But Lacks HomeKit at Launch [Updated]

Accessory maker Arlo today introduced the Pro 4, a new version of its security camera that connects directly to Wi-Fi for easier setup as a standalone security solution, eliminating the need for a separate base station.


Like its Pro 3 predecessor, the Pro 4 features 2K video resolution with HDR, a 160-degree viewing angle, an integrated spotlight and siren, color night vision, two-way audio, and a wire-free, weather-resistant design. A removable, rechargeable battery continues to provide up to six months of battery life per charge.

Unfortunately, the Pro 4 is not compatible with HomeKit at launch, according to the Arlo website. The Pro 3 gained HomeKit support five months after it launched, so it is possible that the Pro 4 will receive HomeKit in a future software update. We’ve reached out to Arlo for comment on their HomeKit plans and we’ll update this story if we hear back.

Arlo also introduced the Ultra 2, a new HomeKit-enabled security camera with improved range and connectivity compared to the original Ultra, expanding placement options beyond traditional cameras that require an outlet.

The Pro 4 is available for pre-order at Arlo.com and Best Buy starting today for $199.99, while Ultra 2 one- and two-camera kits start at $299.99 and are available for pre-order at Arlo.com, Best Buy, and Amazon. Each camera comes with a complimentary three-month Arlo Smart trial, providing extended 30-day rolling cloud storage for video recordings.

Update: Arlo informed MacRumors that it is “working to have Apple HomeKit available on products,” but it has no updates to share regarding the Pro 4 at this time.

Microsoft Introduces New Surface Go 2 Laptop

Microsoft  (MSFT) – Get Report launched the new Surface Go 2 laptop Thursday, and with a starting price of $399.99 is the cheapest laptop sold by the technology giant.

Microsoft has been looking to expand its low-cost options with many consumers’ budgets tightening amid the recession sparked by the coronavirus pandemic.

“The new Surface Go 2 is perfectly portable, with a bigger 10.5-inch touchscreen, better resolution, and long battery life,” the company said in its online description of the machine.

“Use it like a laptop or tablet for everyday tasks. Surface Go Type Cover and Surface Pen sold separately,” Microsoft added.

Microsoft has a 60-day return policy on Surface products, “plus free digital workshops, remote learning opportunities, and more to help you get the most from your new device,” it said.

A Surface Go 2 bundle includes “your choice of Surface Go 2, type cover, Microsoft 365 and Microsoft Complete Protection Plan.” For $992.95 before taxes, you can get a bundle with the $549.99 version of the laptop, the cheapest selections for the other items listed and the cheapest selections for earbuds and a mouse. 

Microsoft said eligible students, parents, teachers, and military members can save up to 10%.

Last month, Morgan Stanley analyst Keith Weiss increased his price target on Microsoft by $15 to $245 a share. He maintained his overweight rating on anticipation of a 10% dividend increase, which was indeed announced Sept. 15.

Microsoft shares recently traded at $212.60, up 1.06%, and have gained 35% year to date. Meanwhile, the Nasdaq has climbed 25% during that period.
