New AV/UC security software enables managed service providers to help businesses better secure sensitive information transmitted over networks
ALEXANDRIA, VA / ACCESSWIRE / October 30, 2020 / Dark Cubed has partnered with one of the United States' largest audiovisual integrators and services providers, Solutionz, Inc., to revolutionize security for audiovisual (AV) and unified communications (UC) environments. Dark Cubed, the cybersecurity company empowering small and medium-sized businesses with affordable automated threat detection and blocking, has partnered with Solutionz to deliver a breakthrough product, known as SecureAV, to the AV and UC market.
Businesses rely on their AV and UC systems for sensitive business discussions and regularly share sensitive and confidential information over these channels that they expect to keep private. Unfortunately, these infrastructures are susceptible to attacks, and savvy attackers know they are a soft target for infiltrating networks. SecureAV utilizes cutting-edge cloud-based technology to detect and block malicious traffic targeting AV and UC equipment such as control systems, headsets, speakers, and video conferencing solutions. SecureAV protects companies by reducing exposure to hackers and keeping sensitive data private.
With the sudden and dramatic shift in 2020 toward remote and hybrid on-premises work environments, organizations have become even more vulnerable to these attack vectors. Many employees now conduct business from home on systems that typically do not offer the same security level as their workplace networks.
Solutionz built its cyber services division from the ground up, starting with subject-matter experts and partnering with best-of-breed providers to bring Solutionz SecureAV to market and meet these new workforce challenges head-on.
"The vulnerabilities of IoT-based devices and network accessories such as AV equipment represent one of today's most critical cybersecurity challenges," said Vince Crisler, Chief Executive Officer of Dark Cubed. "There is an imminent need to secure this growing base of AV and UC environments and prevent malicious actors from compromising data through these often-unprotected entry points."
"We are seeing the convergence of AV and IT as the AV world has become part of every organization's IoT environment," said Shawn Fernandez, Vice President-Business Development of Solutionz, Inc. Our customers simply started asking the question, 'How will you protect us from the known vulnerabilities of AV equipment on our network?' We are pleased to partner with the innovative team at Dark Cubed to bring SecureAV to market."
As hybrid and remote office environments become more prevalent in the "new normal" and different communication platforms become commonly used collaborative tools, it is more critical than ever to protect AV systems and keep confidential discussions private. Solutionz, in partnership with Dark Cubed, plans to revolutionize AV/UC security through SecureAV.
