Byos to Launch a New Device to Secure the Networks while Travelling

CEO Insights Team

In 2016, while on his business trip, Matias Katz noticed the lack of network security for his computer and tablet while on travel. The public networks at airport, hotels and coffee shops were not secure enough to get connected through the VPN. He questioned himself, "Can network security protection be automated using a small, low-powered hardware device?"

This led to the launch of his company Byos, and also to research & develop the Portable Secure Gateway, as a solution to the problem. It is basically designed for businesses professionals while travelling or for remote employees. The Portable Secure Gateway is a light weight, low-power device, which can be connected to the computer or tablet using a USB, which facilitates a network connection. It protects users from malicious activities transmitted through any access point by isolating the computer or tablet from the rest of the network.

The Portable Secure Gateway is designed to be small and compact. This enables the company’s IT department to remotely control a fleet of Byos devices through a SaaS platform. Further it can provide the real- time protection from advanced security threats to their organization’s internet- connected devices and corporate network across the globe.

Post the BlackHat Conference held at Vegas known as the, ‘most technical and relevant information security event series in the world’, where the Byos hosted a private event: ‘Bug Bounty’. The elite list of security researchers of the event includes: Gabriel Barbosa, Principal Security Researcher at Intel (USA), Gustavo Scotti, Principal Security Researcher at Intel (USA), Patrick Mathieu, Offensive Security Lead at Duo Security
(USA), Colin O'Flynn, CEO of NewAE Technology (Canada), Thomas Roth, founder at Keylabs (Germany) and the offensive security team at Pride Security (Brazil).

The ‘Bug Bounty’ is a challenge designed for the security experts. To attempt software, hardware and communication attacks to find the faults in Byos’ product which would fetch them a reward. As this challenge would help the Byos to fix the defects in their products if any, and further improve the product’s security features. The Portable Secure Gateway is expecting its launch by the end of 2019.
