LEVL ADDRESSES network SECURITY while working from HOME

Two key trends put a focus on home network security in the era of work from home

Home cybersecurity is has become an area of high focus lately with the convergence of two key trends: the proliferation of smart home devices has opened up the attack surface of the typical home and at the same time, the large scale work from home movement appears to be a lasting trend, growing the value of the home as a cyber target. LEVL has designed solutions for both the consumer and the business users working from home to lock down security holes on their home networks and obtain a better understanding of the identity of devices connected to such networks.

CONSUMERS EMBRACE THE INTERNET OF THINGS (IoT) IN THE HOME

Wi-Fi-connected thermostats, security systems, smart door locks to lightbulbs are a larger part of our everyday lives. These devices are potential entry points to the Wi-Fi network if not secured properly. IoT has greatly broadened the attack surface of the home by adding great numbers of devices that attach to the network and ultimately the Internet. It is common to see default credentials still in use, easily hacked, but also IoT hacks such as man-in-the-middle, malware injection through a rogue device, phishing, and credential theft.

When installed on the home router, LEVL scans the network and identifies all wireless devices from laptops to coffee makers and leverages both physical and digital layer device intelligence to create a unique ID for each device – a globally unique identifier extremely difficult to spoof. Once all the devices are profiled, only those devices with a known unique identifier in the catalog will be authenticated onto the network. Any rogue, or unknown devices, will be rejected/quarantined and reported. LEVL’s wireless device identity intelligence mitigates threats to the home including credential theft through phishing, botnet attacks, and man-in-the-middle attacks.

THE GROWING VALUE OF HOME TARGETS - THE ENTERPRISE COMES HOME

The COVID-19 crisis has thrust much of the white-collar workforce into working from home, and projections show that working from home will be a trend that stays long after the pandemic is gone. Corporate espionage has just gotten a lot easier. High-value corporate targets, for example, public company executives around financial reporting time, or engineers working on a secret development project, can be much easier for hackers to attack when the employees are out of the protections of the enterprise wireless network.

For the work from home users, it is optional for corporate IT to create interconnects between LEVL on the home network and common corporate IT systems such as SSO, SIEM, and/or SOAR for even better assurance and reporting than LEVL alone.

As the cyberattack stakes climb higher for the work from home users and the opportunities grow easier to hack the average household, LEVL is becoming an essential part of a complete work from home cyber protection strategy.
