Zero trust architecture reduces threats, but it isn’t infallible. Stolen, hacked and spoofed credentials remain a significant issue for organizations. And quantum strength attacks are on the horizon, ready to prey on static, public key infrastructure (PKI).
Enter QWERX. This patented technology uses ever-changing credentials to protect devices and eliminate the threat of external breaches. It provides a new security framework that doesn’t rely on users, algorithms or static certificates. Learn how your company can benefit from this simple, efficient and cost-effective solution.
1. Simplifies Everyday Use and Management
The best security framework is user-friendly, saving time and eliminating frustration for employees and IT professionals. Devices sync to networks securely, and IT teams can view network and hardware status in real-time. However, policies on BYOD (bring your own device), remote or hybrid workers and IoT hardware make perimeter security a daunting challenge.
QWERX alleviates the challenges faced by IT professionals and users. Unlike multi-factor authentication (MFA), QWERX uses an ephemeral symmetric key infrastructure, securing your perimeter without shrouding it in secrecy. It removes the user interface and passwords from the security chain.
Without reliance on static credentials, users can move seamlessly between authorized devices. Furthermore, employees don’t have to make split-second decisions about opening a link. The network defense system prevents connections to unauthorized attackers.
QWERX is also device, network, and cloud-agnostic, so your team spends less time configuring and provisioning hardware. The intuitive dashboard displays network and device status, allowing administrators to view notifications and identify rogue devices. QWERX works in the background, automatically detecting and preventing malicious activity, capturing data and displaying it in the QWERX Enterprise Secure Perimeter (QESP) console.
2. Cost-Effective for All-Sized Businesses
Information and network security software should reduce device and threat management costs. These cost savings stem from less downtime, higher user productivity and fewer resource-intensive IT activities.
The need for cost-effective tools is essential, considering Samsung and Oxford Economics estimate it costs $345 to $458 per employee to manage devices. Fortunately, QWERX uses existing infrastructure, reducing your total cost of ownership (TCO). It scales to millions of endpoints without interoperability concerns or architecture upgrades–no “rip & replace.”
Other alternatives need expensive workarounds for non-compatible hardware. Also, PKI platforms are resource-intensive, requiring on-site server and certificate management. Conversely, QWERX supports multiple environments, including digital wallets, e-commerce sites, cloud computing and mobile devices.
QWERX eliminates the user interface from the security chain, lowering expenses for intrusion detection and identity access management. Since the 2021 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR) finds that 82% of breaches “involve the human element,” removing users from the equation can reduce costs related to security incidents.
3. Efficient Network Device Protection
Effective network defense systems help your organization achieve maximum productivity by decreasing waste and unnecessary expenses. Indeed, organizations spend an average of $480 per employee yearly “on time wasted due to password issues,” according to Beyond Identity. Other inefficiencies occur from stolen or irrecoverable encryption keys and tedious identity and device authentication processes.
QWERX uses dynamic, ever-changing keys. Shorter, stronger credentials reduce network latency, ensuring real-time network processes occur without delay. Once you’ve initiated perimeter security, QWERX automatically enrolls and reauthenticates network devices within seconds.
IT professionals receive alerts as QWERX monitors and end rogue access attempts in real-time by immediately flagging and rejecting them. In short, QWERX provides consistent security across all devices, users and locations, increasing your organization’s efficiency.
Improve Network Security by Eliminating Threats
Organizations can boost productivity and reduce external network breaches by removing users from their network security chain. QWERX future-proofs your security framework against quantum strength attacks and sophisticated malicious actors. The lightweight network defense system is simple, cost-effective and efficient, making it ideal for multi-cloud deployments, IoT networks and enterprises of all sizes.
