Byos Introduces Endpoint Micro-Segmentation Solution to Extend Zero Trust Access to Any Remote Wi-Fi Connection

First Solution to Protect Users and Organizations from the Risk of Unmanaged and Unprotected Home and Public Wi-Fi Networks

Today Byos, Inc. introduced the Byos™ μGateway™ (“micro-gateway”), the first plug-and-play security product that protects endpoints from threats on local Wi-Fi networks through endpoint micro-segmentation.

This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20201014005204/en/

Organizations are now more than ever dependent on employees connecting from uncontrolled home and public networks to do their jobs. Unfortunately, these networks are “dirty” and risky to connect to. VPNs only protect data in transit between users and corporate networks; they do nothing to prevent the spread of malware or the other risks associated with connecting to these networks. In fact, Byos has identified the “Dirty Half Dozen” attacks that must be protected from, including:

  • Scanning, Enumerating, and Fingerprinting

  • Eavesdropping

  • Remote Access Exploits

  • Evil-Twin Wi-Fi

  • Lateral Network Infections

  • DNS hijacking

The patent-pending Byos μGateway is a hardened, embedded security stack on a small USB device that solves this problem by isolating each endpoint onto its own unique network micro-segment of one, protecting it from compromised networks and other compromised endpoints on the network. Byos allows employees, contractors and devices to safely and securely connect to any network, regardless of their location or network environment.

Easily Deploy, Manage, and Secure Every Remote Network Connection

Combined with the µGateway, the Byos Endpoint Micro-Segmentation Solution has a centralized Management Console giving IT and security teams a simpler, more efficient approach to security policy definition, enforcement, and management.

The Byos Management Console allows IT teams to deploy and centrally manage Byos μGateways at scale and provides full visibility and control

Consider OpenOffice as a free alternative to Microsoft Word, with no internet connection required

Q: I read your recent article regarding using Microsoft Word without having to pay. I am in the situation where I often do not have internet/Wi-Fi or even phone service (on a private boat). I like Microsoft Word because Wi-Fi is not needed. I keep all of my recipes on Word and access them when I am in remote areas on the boat. Is there any way around having to pay for Word?

— Janet Kvistad

A: If you want the capabilities of Word, including the ability to work without an internet connection, without having to pay for Word, I recommend you take a look at OpenOffice.

OpenOffice is a free, open-source suite of productivity applications including a word processor, a spreadsheet program, a presentation manager and a drawing program. The word processor is similar to Microsoft Word in appearance and functionality and works with Word file formats. You can learn more and, if you choose, download OpenOffice at www.openoffice.org.

Q: One of your readers recently inquired about WordPad, having been told by an installer that Word was no longer available except in a $70 yearly subscription.

Last I checked, Office 2019 Home and Student, which includes Word and is just a one-time fee, is still available, no?

Hopefully Microsoft realizes there are a great many people who need Word but don’t need all the bells and whistles of, or can’t afford, a yearly subscription service.

— Matt

A: Microsoft Word Home and Student is available on the Microsoft Store site for a one-time payment of $79.99. And you can get the full version for $139.99.

As for the bells and whistles, yes, there are some if you opt for the subscription instead of the one-time fee. For $69.99 a

Management Commentary

“While revenue was impacted by the global pandemic, we delivered positive operating cash flow in what is normally a cash outflow quarter by improving our cost structure and sustaining gross margins through effective pricing discipline,” said Kate W. Duchene, Chief Executive Officer. “As announced in early September, we are also well underway with our European restructuring plan which will enhance account and revenue focus, streamline operations and accelerate virtual delivery. Looking ahead, we are encouraged by early signs of stabilization, including pipeline pick up and revenue trend improvement.”
