it-sa 2021: Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity presents VS-NfD (RESTRICTED) workstation with zero-trust technology

IT security specialist Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity will showcase the new VS-NfD (RESTRICTED) workstation with zero-trust technology at the upcoming it-sa. It consists of the first VPN client - approved by the German Federal Office for Information Security -, R&S®Trusted VPN Client, which is purely software-based and yet functions independently of the operating system's security mechanisms, and the proven R&S®Trusted Disk hard disk encryption. This enables secure mobile and encrypted work while complying with high security requirements on a wide range of endpoint platforms. The company will also present how the R&S®Trusted Gate security solution provides a way out of the current cloud dilemma. It will also show R&S®SITLine ETH NG, the latest generation of high-speed network encryptors with VS-NfD (RESTRICTED) approval, and R&S®Trusted Application Factory, an innovative solution for DevSecOps teams.

Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity is exhibiting together with its sister company LANCOM Systems in Hall 7A / Booth 306.

Munich, September 22, 2021 - With its VS-NfD (RESTRICTED) workstation with zero-trust technology, IT security expert Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity is making secure mobile and encrypted work even easier while maintaining high security requirements. R&S Trusted VPN Client protects the network communication of a client platform (Windows laptop, tablet) with a government or corporate network via an untrusted network, such as the Internet. The software-based R&S Trusted VPN Client does not require any additional hardware. The "always on" mode provides additional security - users are never unprotected in an untrusted network. The proven VS-NfD (RESTRICTED) approved R&S Trusted Disk protects sensitive data from unauthorized access with secure and transparent encryption in real time without restricting productivity even in the event of loss or theft - even on USB data carriers. At the same time, the VS-NfD (RESTRICTED) workstation provides the necessary independence from the operating system's security architecture: potential attacks from the Windows operating system on the base firmware go nowhere, and users do not have to trust potentially insecure components such as an operating system. "We believe that security can only be independent of the operating system," emphasizes Dr. Falk Herrmann, CEO of Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity. "With our zero-trust technology, we ensure security while giving users digital sovereignty."

The virtual environment for secure web surfing, R&S Browser in the Box, provides an additional security system for the VS-NfD (RESTRICTED) workplace in combination with R&S Trusted VPN Client and R&S Trusted Disk.

In a new legal opinion, Prof. Dr. Heckmann, holder of the Chair for Law and Security of Digitalization at the Technical University of Munich, explains how the R&S Trusted Gate solution, as a data protection-compliant multi-level system, offers a way out of the cloud dilemma for public authorities and companies. The special feature of the solution lies in the secure design of a multi-level system: according to this, the personal content of the encryption level is separated from the cloud services at the business level. In this way, the benefits of external cloud services can be enjoyed without transferring personal data to an "insecure third country". Businesses and public authorities retain data sovereignty and meet the requirements of the GDPR.

With R&S SITLine ETH NG, Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity introduces an application- and user-independent basic security for cross-site network communications for public authorities and enterprises. The security solution offers scalable transmission rates from 10 Mbit/sec to 40 Gbit/sec. A central security management system ensures simple and efficient operation.

R&S Trusted Application Factory helps DevOps teams integrate application security. The solution enables the integration of security into the DevOps approach, known as DevSecOps, and is characterized by security, user-friendliness and transparency.

Other it-sa highlights of the Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity product portfolio:

Network security: Beyond the devices of the R&S SITLine ETH product family, the VS-NfD (RESTRICTED) approved R&S SITLine IP high-speed Layer 3 encryption guarantees powerful group encryption for IP traffic. R&S Trusted VPN – VS-NfD (RESTRICTED) approved - is an IPsec-based encryption solution and enables secure access to organizational resources.

Application security: For the protection of critical enterprise applications and company-specific APIs, the company presents R&S Web Application Firewall (WAF) and, with R&S Cloud Protector, the WAF-as-a-Service variant.

LANCOM Systems will be presenting innovative enhancements to its network and security solutions at it-sa. The focus of the presentation will be on state-of-the-art cloud-managed security and the enhanced VPN functionality of the LANCOM R&S Unified Firewalls, which combines cloud, SD-WAN and security in a lean one-box solution for SMEs.
