Combat #Ransomware Attacks with #IronCAP

Don’t be left out in the cold – Combat Ransomware Attacks with IronCAP!

Cyber extortions are crippling critical infrastructures, healthcare systems, government agencies and businesses around the world. In 2021 alone we saw some large-scale scum hacks and ransomware attacks. In early May Colonial Pipeline paid $5 million to the DarkSide ransomware gang and in June, the meat processor JBS paid $11 million to the Russia-based REvil gang. Hackers are using simple phishing tools, making you believe it is a legitimate email, to gain access to your sensitive information.

Top US officials have recently ranked ransomware attack as a national security threat. According to The New York Times, President Biden put this issue at the top of his agenda for his June meeting with Russia’s president, Vladimir Putin, and had given him forceful warnings for his inaction against those ransomware operators tied to Russia.  President Biden had also requested his lawmakers to work on several bills that would, among other things, require a wide range of companies including critical infrastructure operators to report attacks to the government.

The F.B.I. Internet Crime Report for 2020 listed 2,474 cyberattacks in the United States, with losses totaling more than $29.1 million. The reality is probably of a much greater magnitude. The German data-crunching firm Statista has estimated that there were 304 million cyberattacks worldwide in 2020, a 62% increase over 2019.

We at IronCAP™ have been trying to educate businesses and individuals that Q-day (the day the first quantum hack is publicly recognized) is around the corner and everybody needs to gear up. Nation states and governments are already at it, how about you? To learn more, visit www.ironcap.ca.

IronCAP™ is our latest innovation for the post-quantum cybersecurity. This patent-protected, post-quantum cryptographic system is based on the Goppa Code-based cryptographic technology. It has embedded our proprietary subclass of (L, G) making it not only more secured but also has faster cryptographic operations (key generation, encryption, decryption) than the traditional Goppa Code-based technology (McEliece). We are offering a live demonstration for the general public to try and experience the strength of IronCAP™ post-quantum encryption easily. To learn more, visit www.ironcap.ca.

#IronCAP Completes PoC #QuantumSafe #Blockchain

All the technical objectives necessary to integrate IronCAP™ into the Solana blockchain have been achieved!

Not just by providing a quantum-safe blockchain that supports smart contracts, but also retaining Solana’s ultra-fast throughput. “The technology we developed for this project is independent of the type of blockchain that is in use and as such it can be applied to not only the Solana blockchain but also other public blockchains such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, as well as most private business blockchains. The method of integration is unique and; therefore, we plan to file a patent application along with our partner, Talent Summit who has accepted and paid for the delivery of the Proof of Concept (“PoC”).  Our next step will be to create and demonstrate a quantum-safe wallet while Talent Summit will plan for commercial development and launching of QNT – Quantum Native Token,” said Andrew Cheung, President and CEO of 01 Communique.

As previously announced, the Company was commissioned to develop the World’s First Quantum-Safe Blockchain designed for Tokens, NFTs, Smart Contracts for the Metaverse, De-centralized Finance (DeFi). It is expected that this quantum-safe blockchain will be resilient against cyber-attacks, including attacks from Quantum Computers.

“Unfortunately, virtually all blockchains in the world today are vulnerable to quantum computer attacks.  Since blockchain data is meant to be “forever” it is imperative that it is quantum-safe.  This PoC achievement is a very significant milestone and demonstrates our IronCAP™ technology can transform existing blockchains into a quantum-safe version that can be incorporated in Tokens, NFTs, Smart Contracts for Metaverse, DeFi, and more”, said Andrew Cheung.

#Crypto is under attack and it’s losing the battle against #hackers

If you own a crypto wallet, then you could be in big trouble!

Nearly 8,000 digital wallets have recently been drained of just over $5.2 million in digital coins including ’s sol token and (USDC), according to blockchain analytics firm Elliptic. The Twitter account Solana Status confirmed the attack, noting that approximately 7,767 wallets have been affected by the exploit. Elliptic’s estimate is slightly higher at 7,936 wallets.

Phantom said on Twitter that it’s investigating the “reported vulnerability in the solana ecosystem” and doesn’t believe it’s a Phantom-specific issue. Blockchain audit firm OtterSec tweeted that the hack has affected multiple wallets “across a wide variety of platforms.”

Quantum-resistant encryption research is a hot topic because it is felt that quantum computers are almost certain to become prevalent and sufficiently powerful to crack existing encryption algorithms. It is therefore prudent to prepare crypto that can survive future attacks, so that data encrypted today remains safe tomorrow, and digital communications can remain secure.

Due to the uncertain and potentially long time frames, and all of the more immediate threats that businesses are dealing with on a daily basis — there’s “always that risk” that some businesses will just ignore the issue, said Boaz Gelbord, chief security officer at Akamai Technologies.

Can Remote Access Benefit Your Business?

Remote desktop is one revolutionary service which has changed the whole computing industry. It allows users to access their computers anywhere and anytime through the internet. This has facilitated companies to enhance the productivity of their work force dramatically.

Which issues should managers consider when implementing this technology for their business?
1. Technology Issues:
Sometimes, there are several security and firewall configurations required to give access to employees working from home. Then there is the cost of VPNs which can get high depending on the number of remote workers. With I’m InTouch, there are no hardware compatibility issues or gateway/firewall settings that need special configuration. Simply install it on the employees’ host PCs and all they need is a browser to access our simple web interface. And with our 3 layers of authentication and encryption standards, security is not an issue. Also there is a huge cost saving when using I’m InTouch versus a VPN, again saving the business money.

2. Business Issues:
The more employees a business has, the larger the office space it requires. By having them work from home, the office space does not need to be as large and money can be saved. Moreover, I’m InTouch allows employees to remain productive while travelling. It avoids confidential or sensitive data to be taken out of the company since there is no need to copy data onto a laptop or USB drive anymore. Employees can access any file, any data on their office PCs anytime. Everything remains in the office premises. Data loss when your laptop is being stolen will no longer happen.

 
In summary, when looking at the high costs of having remote workers with VPN connections, I’m InTouch makes much more sense to a business. It really saves a lot of hassles and money for your business when implementing a remote workforce.

More Than a Tool for Technical Support

Imagine having a single tool for your business that can handle your Technical Support, your Pre-Sales, and your General Customer Service enquiries. I’m OnCall is a very cost-effective tool that lets your business provide a centralized access point on its web site for customers to get help. It will ease tracking and communication between different departments and clients. Its newly implemented “Live Chat” and “Queuing” features will give customers a pathway to communicate with your company other than the phone.

Live Chat

The Live Chat feature of I’m OnCall can essentially eliminate your customer service phone lines. Customers can submit live chat requests by clicking the Live-Chat button on your web site which is embedded with an URL given by I’m OnCall.  Your agents simply pick up requests and perform real-time live chat with the customers via the Internet.  Customers may leave call-back requests if the queue is busy.

Queue Management

You can customize up to 3 URLs to embed into your web site to provide Live-Chat support to your customers.  For example, you may create a “Live-Chat (Pre-sales)” button, a “Live-Chat (After-sales)” button and a “Customer Service” button.  Each button embeds a different URL.  Different Live-Chat buttons will submit live-chat requests to a different queue.  You can assign different Agents to service different queues which is similar to how you would direct calls to different departments in a traditional phone support system.

Each queue can be configured differently to allow customers to submit a Live-Chat request to a particular Agent ID# (similar to entering an extension # in a traditional phone support system) or just submit a request for the next available Agent without specifying any Agent ID#.  (Please refer to the “Users Tab” section for details about configuring the Chat ID# for the Agents.)

You can configure the Greeting Message, the Disabled Message, and the Office-closed Message for each Live-Chat queue.  The Office-closed Message will be shown according to the Office Hour Settings.  You can also enter your greeting messages manually.

As you can see, I’m OnCall is a tool that not just works for Technical Support.  It is useful for other departments which need to deal with customers as well.  Keeping everything centralized will streamline your staff management, improve overall productivity and help you to provide good customer service.

Wakeup-on-LAN for Your Windows Can Save Energy and PC life

Having a server at home is a great luxury. However having a computer running 24×7 is an extreme waste of energy. Turning it on and off manually is not very appealing too. Luckily we don’t need to do either any more. Your Windows PC can easily be configured to be shut down when not in use and with I’m InTouch, it can be woke up remotely upon access.

For companies that are environmental conscious, I’m InTouch’s Wakeup-on-LAN function will provide a great means to reduce energy usage.

How does the Remote Wake-Up feature work?

If you attempt to remotely access your computer which has been powered off, I’m InTouch will notify another I’m InTouch computer on your local network to send a wake-up signal to turn on your computer.  In order for remote wake-up to work, at least one computer on your network must be on and designated as the wake-up proxy in I’m InTouch to send the wake-up signal to other computers.

What are the requirements for Remote Wake-Up?

• A minimum of 2 PCs on the same wired network with the I’m InTouch client software installed. At least one PC must be designated as the Wake-Up Proxy and be powered on to wake up other computers on the network.

• The computer you want to wake-up must have a BIOS and a network card that support Wake-Up-On-LAN. This feature must also be enabled in both the BIOS and the network card properties in Windows.

• The administrator must enable the Remote Wake-Up function in the user settings page of the I’m InTouch computer you wish to power on and assign a Wake-Up password.

How do I enable Remote Wake-Up in my I’m InTouch administrator account?

1. Login to your administrator account from www.imintouch.com.

2. From the List of Computers page, check those computers of which Remote Wake-Up properties you wish to change and click the User settings/Activate link.

3. On the User Settings page, ensure that the Remote Wakeup feature has been enabled for each computer. We also recommend enabling the Remote Wake-Up Proxy option so that any computer on the same network can act as the proxy to wake up other computers. Remember, at least one computer has to have the Wake-Up Proxy enabled and be turned on in order for other computers to be remotely powered on.

Using our patented I’m InTouch Remote Wake up technology will ensure continuous compliance with your green IT policies, and take advantage of the cost savings in power management.

I’m InTouch Helps You Support Remote Workers

Do you have workers who travel frequently or often work away from the office setting? Given the proper resources, a computer, an Internet connection and access to the company’s internal network, more and more people are opting to work from home or other remote locations. All these remote workforce puts forward increasing challenges to your IT Service desktop support them.

Make Services Available 24/7

The more scattered your workforce becomes; the more crucial it is to provide services around the clock. With the I’m InTouch service, your remote staff would have 24/7 access to their host systems in the office. And with our patented technology, there is no need for costly VPNs to be configured and maintained.

Security Measures

Traveling workers also pose greater security threats, because their devices are constantly at risk of being lost, stolen, or broken. If they use I’m InTouch to remotely work on their office PC’s, all data remains secure on your office premise. They don’t need to duplicate files and data onto their laptops. So there is no worry about confidential information being leaked if their laptop/mobile devices are lost or stolen.  This along with the 256-bit SSL Data Encryption, Dual Login Passwords and other security measures, I’m InTouch provides you with a safe and secure remote access solution.

Managing remote employees has its challenges but with the I’m InTouch service, businesses can provide a tool that supports their remote workforce easily and efficiently.
