In 2018 the Emotet malware exploited a new attack surface and conducted a digital airborne attack which enabled the malware to hop from one corporate network to another corporate network via a wireless channel. This new attack surface, now called the corporate network airspace, provides attackers access to corporate assets despite highly secured wired and wireless networks.
Antenna for Hire
With the prevalence of uncontrolled broadcasting entities, aka Antenna for Hire, digital airborne attacks became accessible to any remote attacker. In parallel, the amount of unmonitored and unauthorized wireless networks in the proximity of corporates continued to grow. Yet, controlling the corporate network airspace was completely neglected. Cyber security veterans Shlomo Touboul, Ohad Plotnik, Amichai Shulman and Roi Keren independently identified the problem and decided to join forces to deliver the first NACP solution.
The AirEye mission
The AirEye mission is simple:
To shine a spotlight on the attackers that leverage the corporate network airspace and provide protection to what is currently today’s largest unprotected area of the network.
Today AirEye, the leader in NACP, is deployed at various industries, including finance, banking, telco, healthcare, manufacturing, retail and aerospace.
