There are thousands of automation systems in Finnish companies and societies open to network attacks according to a survey done by Aalto University researchers (Helsingin Sanomat newspaper article on 21st March 2013). Jukka Manner, Aalto University Professor of Information Technology, states the following: “The found devices should not be open on the Internet, for then they can be easily attacked. This is a considerable information security threat”.
Tosibox Chief Technology Officer Veikko Ylimartimo comments that “One reason for using open connections is that there has not been another way to form a remote connection to automation systems.
The hiding of the automated targets from the Internet causes additional challenges in making a remote connection. Further, the important connection encryption is not commonly even done because it is so challenging. On the other hand, this is often done on a server on the Internet, and breaking into those softwares allows easy access to the destination”.
Tosibox is the perfect solution also for these kinds of problems. Tosibox offers a unique information security solution and connection encryption to any destination, a solution that is unbelievably easy and effortless for the user.
