Our strong belief, which is part of our company’s long-term vision: if companies want to unlock the full potential of Enterprise Mobility, they must remove the barriers, Security is one of them and solutions exist to do that.
From an interception point of view, mobile networks and infrastructures can’t really be trusted, as their components suffer from various vulnerabilities. Hardware and software solutions are already available for those who need (or desire) to implement mobile interceptions: SMS spoofing, call spoofing and call listening are only a few activities which today are not only possible, but even easy and in some cases completely free. If you are curious to read some examples, you can find some of them in the presentation.
As higlighted during our speeches, while risks and interception activities are already reality, many businesses and their owners implemented so far no measure to prevent or face those attacks. While 64% of the companies believe they could not prevent breaches and 94% expect frequency to grow (see more stats in the PDFs), it looks like most of them would not take counter-measures before facing a serious attack. From a practical point of view, they are waiting for the catastrophe before trying to prevent it, which has no logical basis.
In front of this panorama, Kudelski Security is now giving a strong answer with a brand new set of products: White Noise (more info available here) which solves the interception problem at its root with end-to-end hardware encryption. With this approach we can have privacy and trust the communication even though we know the mobile infrastructure can not be trusted.
