With the evolving nature of business operations after the start of the COVID-19 outbreak, companies worldwide shifted in masse to working remotely. While several platforms rose to the occasion and enabled user-friendly video conferencing options, the resulting flood of users created a new and enticing target for nefarious hackers.
Recognizing the severity of the situation, StrikeForce created PrivacyLok - an innovative solution designed to protect sensitive personal and corporate data. PrivacyLok does this by locking down six different commonly exploited areas: keyboard, screen, camera, microphone, speakers, and clipboard.
It also secures the screen against malware secretly capturing its contents via screenshot. Access to the camera becomes restricted to only the applications approved by the user. By locking down all audio input and output devices - including the microphone and speakers - PrivacyLok stops unwanted third-party tampering or access. Finally, the computer's clipboard (where the computer temporarily saves cut or copied content) receives similar protection by being locked against unwanted applications trying to grab data or replace it with malicious data.
StrikeForce's PrivacyLok hit the market, and businesses or individuals can purchase a subscription from iTecs, now an official distribution partner of StrikeForce. Once SafeVchat, the first video conferencing platform created with cybersecurity in mind from the ground up, releases next month, customers can bundle PrivacyLok with it at a discounted rate.
Despite the rollout of COVID-19 vaccines beginning in December 2020, working remotely and meeting virtually over video conferencing platforms appear to be here to stay for countless people. We at iTecs are proud to provide the robust and comprehensive security solution that is PrivacyLok.
