FHOOSH Announces Cybersecurity Strategic Alliance with Verizon

Alliance Extends Data Protection from the IoT Edge through to the Cloud

SAN DIEGO - FHOOSH announced it has formed a strategic alliance with Verizon Enterprise Solutions to enhance the Verizon Software Defined Perimeter (SDP) service with fast end-to-end data protection.  The new offering complements Verizon SDP and provides a comprehensive scalable solution that can be deployed to protect an organization's ecosystem. With FHOOSH inside Verizon SDP, Verizon can protect and speed all types of customers' data from endpoints, including Internet of Things (IoT) devices, and safeguard that data for its entire lifecycle.

Verizon Asymmetric Solutions Architect Jeff Schweitzer noted, "FHOOSH performance security helps SDP give organizations a true competitive edge with new functionality and an improved customer experience." In fact, data speeds are so fast, FHOOSH enables secure live streaming from the edge, during transmission and through Verizon SDP environments.

The companies showcased Verizon SDP services together with FHOOSH capabilities at the June 2017 Operation Convergent Response (#OCR2017) emergency responder technology demonstration event in Perry, Georgia. During the exhibition, FHOOSH software protected video data captured from IoT sensor devices mounted on tactical K9s and robots, then securely streamed HD video in real time to a secure command and control center to aid first responders taking part in the emergency scenarios.

Today's announcement extends the Verizon and FHOOSH alliance, as patented FHOOSH cybersecurity capabilities become an intrinsic component of Verizon Software Defined Perimeter. FHOOSH builds on Verizon SDP to help reduce security risks with data protection that safeguards against unauthorized access and helps boost system-wide performance. The easy-to-deploy software scales with SDP, yet is so lightweight it can be installed on a range of IoT devices to safeguard data from inception.

FHOOSH CEO Eric Tobias said, "We're thrilled to work together on a holistic vision to protect all data, all the time, everywhere. By joining our collective capabilities, we're able to solve challenges that were previously impossible as we protect a customer's data."

"With FHOOSH innovations extending, enhancing and speeding Verizon SDP, we have an opportunity to better safeguard data as we create completely new product solutions ranging from secure surveillance and entertainment live streaming, to turnkey offerings for emergency responders and smart cities, smartphones and more," according to Schweitzer. "Together, we're redefining the boundaries of what's possible and dramatically changing the customer experience."

PUBLISHED: 2018-06-19
An issue was discovered in Zuul 3.x before 3.1.0. If nodes become offline during the build, the no_log attribute of a task is ignored. If the unreachable error occurred in a task used with a loop variable (e.g., with_items), the contents of the loop items would be printed in the console. This could ...
CVE-2018-12559
PUBLISHED: 2018-06-19
An issue was discovered in the cantata-mounter D-Bus service in Cantata through 2.3.1. The mount target path check in mounter.cpp `mpOk()` is insufficient. A regular user can consequently mount a CIFS filesystem anywhere (e.g., outside of the /home directory tree) by passing directory traversal sequ...
CVE-2018-12560
PUBLISHED: 2018-06-19
An issue was discovered in the cantata-mounter D-Bus service in Cantata through 2.3.1. Arbitrary unmounts can be performed by regular users via directory traversal sequences such as a home/../sys/kernel substring.

PUBLISHED: 2018-06-19
An issue was discovered in the cantata-mounter D-Bus service in Cantata through 2.3.1. A regular user can inject additional mount options such as file_mode= by manipulating (for example) the domain parameter of the samba URL.
CVE-2018-12562
PUBLISHED: 2018-06-19
An issue was discovered in the cantata-mounter D-Bus service in Cantata through 2.3.1. The wrapper script 'mount.cifs.wrapper' uses the shell to forward the arguments to the actual mount.cifs binary. The shell evaluates wildcards (such as in an injected string:/home/../tmp/* string).
