Kaymera Launches Fully-secured Version of Google Pixel Phone(January 11, 2017)
Secure Pixel-based phone enables organisations to use Googles new smartphone with military-grade security and no impact on usability
TEL AVIV, Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)--#Google--Kaymera Technologies Ltd, the leader in mobile security for enterprises and Government organizations, has today announced the launch of the Kaymera Secured Pixel, a unique fully-hardened and secured version of Googles flagship smartphone.
Kaymeras secured version of the Pixel phone uses the original Google devices purpose-built hardware and retains all of the Pixels features and ergonomics, including the fingerprint scanner. It enables users to continue using all of their preferred Android applications, while ensuring that the phone, data stored on it and all communications (voice, data and messaging) are fully secured. The device is immune to all types of external exploit attempts. The secured Pixel phones are also fully managed using Kaymeras management console.
The Google Pixel has been developed as a class-leading Android phone, and addresses the increasing fragmentation in the Android ecosystem. This fragmentation leads to long update and patching cycles, which in turn creates multiple potential security vulnerabilities that can be exploited by criminals. However, the Pixel smartphone still needs additional security measures to be applied in order to make it safe for enterprises and government organisations to use.
Avi Rosen, CEO of Kaymera said: ?With the Pixel, Google has raised the bar for Android devices, using the best possible hardware platform but the operating system and various software layers still need further enhancements to provide robust security before it can be used safely in corporate or government environments. However, that security must not affect productivity or restrict functionality of their familiar apps and device features. Kaymeras secured Pixel phone is unique in enabling organizations to meet the demands for both military-grade security and usability simultaneously, without any compromises.
Kaymera is the leading mobile defense system that protects against all mobile threats to devices, communications and users. The company takes the Google Pixel (and also a range of selected high-end mobile devices), and applies Kaymeras own hardened version of the Android operating system and its security architecture, which comprises four layers to address each of the main mobile threat vectors:
- The Encryption layer protects all data stored on the phone, and all traffic from and to the device, whether voice, data or messaging, from network sniffing and man-in-the-middle attacks
- The Protection layer secures the devices external interfaces, from WiFi, cellular, USB, NFC, Bluetooth to web, monitoring and blocking all malicious downloads and exploits
- The Prevention layer monitors for unauthorized attempts to access OS functions, the microphone or camera, GPS and so on
- The Detection and Enforcement layer monitors, detects and blocks malicious code or misbehaving apps
Kaymera devices are centrally managed via the companys management dashboard, which shows the real-time risk status of each device, and gives users the maximum functionality, productivity, and ease of use according to their current environment.
