Japan’s Jasmy and Hong Kong’s NEXSTGO have reached a business alliance, the first perfect combination of blockchain technology in a remote work security PC
The need to use PCs and tablets for study, office and entertainment caused by the epidemic will exist for a long time. Consumers’ usage habits are gradually being developed, and the frequency of use is significantly higher than before the epidemic. According to the “2021 Global PC Market Statistics Report” released by Canalys, an internationally renowned data research organization, the annual PC shipments reached 499 million (including Chromebooks and tablets), a year-on-year increase of 9%.
According to a Gartner report, by the end of 2021, remote workers will make up 32% of all employees worldwide. This ratio is up from 17% in 2019, with global PC shipments hitting a record high, with remote work demand being the main driver.
Market data feeds back the fact that remote work is being embraced by businesses and employees, hybrid work models will become the norm, and more remote workers from home means more PC devices are being disconnected from the company’s internal network, which is also the case in recent years. The key factor for the frequent leakage of corporate secrets, the recent internal data leakage of well-known companies such as NVIDIA, Samsung, and Qualcomm has sounded the alarm for us.
Remote working has certain security risks. However, personal computers, routers and mobile devices are the basis for remote employees to work. Due to the traditional SaaS/IaaS rental and VPN access models, they cannot meet the overall security needs of remote office work. NEXSTGO, a company wholly-owned AVITA brand is considering the introduction of a more credible data security system based on blockchain technology, and reached a business strategic alliance with Jasmy, a Japanese IoT data security company, on February 25. Now-days, machines equipped with the Jasmy Secure PC system are Model development and production are on the agenda.
Jasmy’s official announcement pointed out:
In the future, Jasmy will conduct more research in the following areas and accelerate the establishment of a cooperation system with NEXSTGO.
1) Development and production of models equipped with the Jasmy Secure PC concept
2) Product development for NEXSTGO PC brand or Jasmy original brand
3) Sell NEXSTGO in sales channels including retailers, e-retailers, outlet stores, B2B partners and all e-commerce sites
4) Develop new business models such as Daas (Device as a Service)
5) Develop PCs with new usage and services for the post-coronavirus era
6) Develop tablets and IoT devices using the Jasmy platform
7) Leverage JasmyCoin in IT and IoT market
It is reported that NEXSTGO, as a leading company with the AVITA brand, has operations in more than 25 countries around the world, which is one of the fastest growing PC brands. At the same time, NEXSTGO is also the best partner of Jasmy to promote the Jasmy Secure PC system mainly in the Asia-Pacific region.
Numerous studies report that remote work varies widely around the world, depending on IT adoption, culture and industry mix. In 2022, 31% of the global workforce is expected to be telecommuting (hybrid and fully telecommuting). Of these, the U.S. will lead the way in remote workers, accounting for 53% of the U.S. workforce. Across Europe, UK remote workers will make up 52% of its workforce, while German and French remote workers will make up 37% and 33%, respectively.
India and China will generate the most remote workers, but their overall penetration will remain relatively low, with 30% of workers in India and 28% working remotely in China. At present, Jasmy has established headquarters bases in the United States and the Asia-Pacific region at the same time. This is the region with the largest remote worker base in the world, and it also means that it is the region with the largest demand for secure PCs. Market trends and vacancies will bring Jasmy Secure PC a great opportunity.
According to a “Remote Home Network Security Report” released by ivanti, more than 400 companies surveyed, although 79% believe they have adequate WFH security preparations, but still two-thirds ( 69%) are concerned about the security risks posed by users working from home.
The security controls most commonly used by businesses to secure remote work/homework data are antivirus/antimalware solutions (77%), firewalls (77%), virtual private networks (66%) and multi-factor authentication (66%) .
These scenarios include, anti-phishing 47%, single sign-on 45%, endpoint compliance 34%, mobile device management (MDM) 34%, web application firewall (WAF) 29%, virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) 26%, load Balance/Application Delivery Controller (ADC) 24%, Web Proxy/Web Filtering 23%, Cloud DLP 18%, Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) 16%, User and Entity Behavior Monitoring (UEBA) 11%, Software Defined Boundary ( SDP) 10%, Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) 8%, other 3%.
The report also noted that user awareness is the most important (59%) of the top security challenges for businesses that are expanding remote work. This is followed by access via a home or unsecured public network (56%) and using a personal device (43%).
And 84% of enterprises believe that it is possible (44% very likely) that they will continue to expand their work-from-home capabilities and try to use blockchain-related solutions and secure PC products on the premise of ensuring corporate data security in the future, thereby enjoying higher productivity and other business advantages.
According to ivanti’s research report and other network research data, we concluded that in enterprises, the data security of telecommuting should at least meet the three levels of terminal security, connection security, and access security. In the basic performance of Jasmy Secure PC officially announced by Jasmy (it is reported that the product has undergone several months of internal testing period), we can find that Jasmy Secure PC can basically meet the above data security requirements, protect employee privacy, remotely control PC and other functions more It is unique and brings more comfortable and convenient experience to remote working.
The features of the Jasmy Secure PC concept are as follows:
1) Safely monitor PC-side data
Use distributed technologies such as blockchain and unique device management technologies to monitor and control mishandling of data and unauthorized operations.
2) Utilize the original capabilities of the PC itself
Thin clients such as remote desktop and VDI use other resources over the network, by allowing the use of the resources of the PC itself used by the user, the performance and comfort of use are close to those of the workplace.
3) Striking a balance between work progress monitoring and privacy protection for each employee
Businesses can ensure that each employee does not check and monitor unnecessary information while managing and checking each employee’s work progress and usage environment in real time.
4) Personal remote control PC function
Through the P2P function of blockchain and unique equipment, the unnecessary functions of each employee’s PC can be remotely restricted and securely controlled, allowing companies to create a work environment management technology in which employees can only use the functions they need for their jobs during working hours.
5) Safely check the status of the PC hardware itself
With Jasmy’s unique device management technology and log management capabilities using blockchain, companies can safely check the individual load and wear status of PC bodies even in remote work environments.
The data security problem of remote office has a long history, and it has become increasingly prominent under the influence of the new crown epidemic, but it has not been able to be solved well. Traditional remote office data security solutions, such as SaaS/IaaS, VPN, etc. The gateway’s data security transmission link link does not provide an overall solution for the enterprise in terms of data security, and the terminal environment, link, and access data cannot be protected, which not only threatens the resource data provided by the enterprise, but also insecure terminals. It also leads to a decline in user experience, cannot improve work efficiency, and increases protection costs. In the future, with the popularization of edge computing and blockchain technology, Jasmy Secure PC developed based on blockchain technology will become a mainstream product in the industry, and the data security of enterprises in remote office will be greatly improved and improved, including cloud computing serve.
