New arrival: ESET Smart TV Security against Android TV malware

Sunday, March 4th, 2018

The new ESET Smart TV Security was showcased during MWC 2018 to protect against targeted malware attacks on connected TVs and other devices with the Android TV operating system.

According to statistics, there could be as many as 30 billion devices connected to the internet by 2020. While these gadgets bring numerous benefits to households, they also pose a threat to consumers’ everyday lives.

According to statistics, there could be as many as 30 billion devices connected to the internet by 2020. While these gadgets bring numerous benefits to households, they also pose a threat to consumers’ everyday lives.

Smart TVs – with their microphones, cameras and USB ports – are increasingly becoming prime targets for malware attacks.

“Given the risks to security and privacy, consumers need to think about protecting smart home devices in the same way they would protect their laptops, tablets or mobiles – they cannot treat them like an average TV, kettle, or watch,” said Branislav Orlik, Mobile Security Product Manager at ESET.

By gaining control over a smart TV, cybercriminals can not only attack other devices on the user’s home network but also spy on individuals to gather sensitive and personal data.

Smart TVs with Android TV OS will also undoubtedly contribute to the spread of Android ransomware, which has already been persistently targeting Android devices for a number of years.

The threat has now crossed over to Android TVs, as incidents of smart TV screen-locks and ransom demands reported in the news have illustrated.

The ESET Smart TV Security application protects consumers with the following security features.

  • Antivirus protection safeguards against increasing levels of Android malware.
  • Anti-ransomware technology combats screen-locks.
  • Multi-device scanning for malware on devices and USBs that connect to the smart TV.
  • Anti-phishing to protect users from attempts to steal sensitive, personal information. This feature will be available only in the premium version of ESET Smart TV Security.

If ransomware is activated, users are advised to switch their smart TV off/on while the virus database is updated and scanning is initiated.

“Users need to feel safe in the knowledge that they can watch their favourite shows and browse the internet on their smartphones without fear of being watched or having their personal data compromised. ESET is the top-rated provider of security solutions for Android OS devices, so we are the smart choice for consumers to ensure all the devices in their homes, and the data they collect, are kept secure,” explains Orlik.

When ESET Smart TV Security detects ransomware on the device, the user is advised to uninstall the malware.

Once uninstall is confirmed, the ransomware will be cleared.

ESET’s Smart TV Security is available for download via Google Play, and can only be downloaded from a user’s TV device.

Once installed, users will be protected by ESET across their entire Android ecosystem – both smartphone and TV.

New arrival: Veeam Availability Orchestrator for BC/DR compliance

Wednesday, February 28th, 2018

Available today, Veeam Availability Orchestrator enables enterprises to mitigate the risk caused by outdated and untested disaster recovery plans and instead easily create, document, test and execute DR plans, ensuring total compliance.

Veeam® Software today announced the general availability of its new Veeam Availability Orchestrator – the newest addition to the Veeam Availability Platform – which enables enterprises to ensure business continuity and disaster recovery (BC/DR) compliance.

“Enterprise customers are demanding not only Availability, but also help in ensuring compliance. In the event of a disaster, enterprises stand to lose millions in downtime, $21.8 million according to our latest Veeam Availability Report, as well as damaged reputation and lost productivity. Without having a disaster recovery plan that is up-to-date, tested and documented, it’s difficult to respond quickly when disaster strikes. With new Veeam Availability Orchestrator, enterprises can achieve a true Availability platform, reduce costs, define their DR plans, and achieve the peace of mind that comes from knowing that they are able and ready to provide business continuity, even in the worst case scenario,” said Danny Allan, Vice President of Product Strategy at Veeam.

Most DR failures can be tracked back to outdated and untested plans.

The rapidly increasing rate of business and technology changes makes it critical that companies update their DR plans continuously, something that only 14 percent do today, according to Forrester Research.

Veeam Availability Orchestrator tackles this problem by offering a DR orchestration solution that reduces the time, cost and effort associated with planning for and recovering from a disaster.

While many enterprises have a DR plan already in place, executing on these plans is often complex, cumbersome and time-consuming.

Expensive, error-prone manual processes are common but do not scale, resulting in DR plans that can easily become obsolete.

This results in risk to both data and application Availability, but also to compliance with industry regulations and governing bodies.

Veeam Availability Orchestrator provides an orchestration engine with planning, automated documenting and testing capabilities for preparedness and compliance, with full support for Veeam replicas.

This ecosystem will be built on trust, which is a crucial success factor,” said Dr Siaw Tung Yeng, Founder & CEO, MaNaDr Mobile Health.

These providers include major pharmaceutical companies and key paramedical service providers such as Amgen, MundiPharma, OmniMed Healthcare (HomeCare), QuestLab etc.

Soft launched slightly more than a year ago, the concept has gained traction with the enrollment of 500 private clinics and 600 doctors (general practitioners, dentists & specialists) in Singapore and Australia serving a million patients through its MaNaDr app.

The growing patient database will enable big data analytics that empower doctors to track a patient’s condition to offer pre-emptive and pro-active healthcare.
