Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity presents new security technologies for web applications, clouds and mobile communication

IT security specialist Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity will present the new generations of their innovative security solutions R&S Web Application Firewall and R&S Trusted Gate at the upcoming it-sa in Nuremberg. The company will also showcase their newly developed communication and collaboration platform R&S Trusted Communicator, which combines highly secure messaging with encrypted phone calls.

Munich, August 31, 2018. State-of-the-art IT security solutions regularly fail to keep pace with constantly evolving hacker attacks. More often than not, they are also opaque and unintuitive to use. This particularly applies to solutions that protect web and cloud applications and messengers. At this year’s it-sa, Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity will introduce cutting-edge security concepts that address exactly those shortcomings while simultaneously excelling in user-friendliness. Visitors will have the opportunity to see these high-security solutions from Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity October 9 – 11, 2018.

The new R&S Web Application Firewall generation offers improved configuration options that make it possible to reduce, for example, false positives significantly without requiring administrators to make complicated adjustments. On top of the standard functionalities that comparable solutions offer, R&S Web Application Firewall features vulnerability scanning, virtual patching and web access management for web-based applications such as SAP, email applications such as Outlook Web Access and CRM applications.

Another signature feature is a workflow technology that clearly visualizes the security settings of R&S Web Application Firewall for effortless administration. With R&S Cloud Protector, Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity also offers an SaaS version of R&S Web Application Firewall that can be operated from within a browser, allowing for portable use.

R&S Web Application Firewall surpasses comparable network firewalls by extending its protection to data transmitted on an application level using HTTP or HTTPS protocols. Across all industries, innovative IT processes use these protocols. This is why they are particularly vulnerable and need special protection. Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity will present the newest version of its firewall series, R&SUnified Firewalls, at the upcoming it-sa. R&S Unified Firewalls stand out with SSL and deep packet inspection technology as well as a new, web-based command center that not only offers an extensive overview of the devices’ status and location, but also allows direct access to the firewalls’ configuration interface.

Data-centric cloud security

At it-sa, Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity will also present its security solution R&S Trusted Gate, leading the way for a new generation of cloud data protection, which is built around the concept of data-centric security. This new approach integrates security features into the data instead of building an outer wall around it. Commonplace security concepts merely differentiate between public and corporate networks. As soon as data needs protection outside the corporate network, this “perimeter” security falls short. Only data with intrinsic protection will withstand attacks on the cloud.

R&S Trusted Gate breaks ground by combining encryption, virtualization and data fragmentation in a single, holistic solution. On top of that, R&S Trusted Gate helps companies comply with the new EU data protection regulation (EU-GDPR) on the handling of personal data and integrates seamlessly with existing cloud environments, such as Microsoft SharePoint and Office 365.

Secure messenger with advanced encryption algorithms

Furthermore, Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity will introduce at it-sa the R&S Trusted Communicator app, which is available for iOS and Android. R&S Trusted Communicator enables highly secure phone calls and messaging based on the AES-256 cipher. In its encryption process, all sent elements, including texts, emoji, attachments or metadata, such as the sender’s location, and all calls are encrypted locally on the sender’s smartphone. The communications are only decrypted when they have reached the recipient’s smartphone. With this consistent, end-to-end encryption, all attempts of man-in-the-middle attacks are thwarted. In stark contrast with many other messenger services, locally saved contacts are also protected from spying eyes.
