What is it?

  • The Byos Secure Endpoint Edge is a small USB device that has a network security stack running on it (protections from OSI Layers 1-5).
  • A user plugs it in, authenticates to the device, shuts off their laptop’s native Wi-Fi card (airplane mode) and connects to the network through the Byos device (running it’s own NAT, DHCP, eDNS, etc.).
  • It is plug and play - no software/agent to install on the endpoint, compatible across Win/Mac/Linux, and identifies as an Ethernet Gadget to the endpoint.
  • Overarching application: improved security and control of remote users on public and home Wi-Fi.

What does it do? What problem does it solve?

Protecting corporate and BYOD endpoints from untrusted Wi-Fi networks. It solves the problem of device exposure by providing protection from OSI layers 1 to 5, isolating the connected endpoint onto its own protected microsegment of one within the local Wi-Fi network.

Why was it created? What value does it provide?

The product was created to provide Zero Trust Security at the edge. It does so through microsegmentation, cloaking endpoints from all other devices on the network to remove risk of lateral network infections.
