Researchers have long said that all our networks and devices are susceptible to hacking if not protected properly. This was re-emphasized following the ‘’KRACK’’ Wi-Fi breach that happened last fall. It’s remarkable that after all these years of wireless internet, there still are some flaws in its security. This is due to failings in the WPA2 protocol.
Key Reinstallation Attack, or KRACK, occurs when a hacker breaks the encrypted code that connects your router to other devices connected to that particular network. When hacked, the network is breached, and the hacker has access to the information circulating on it, from pictures to contact lists, all the way to emails.
Thankfully, there is a remedy to this kind of cyberattack that can be applied to your device. Users can install a backwards-compatible patch; however, this is not feasible for everyone. The patch requires the device to be running on the latest update of the operating system and some devices can’t support these updates.
Another solution would be to use a VPN. This creates a virtual layer around your data while being transferred from device to device through the vulnerable network, protecting it from hackers. This is how CEO of AnchorFree and HotspotShield, David Gorodyansky, described the VPN advantage:
“Using a VPN in this situation, to use a very, very simple metaphor, is as if someone has stuck their head through your window as you discuss sensitive matters – but you’re speaking a language they don’t (and can’t) understand,” he said.
Evizone works in a similar way. Any time you store or send a file over Evizone, the information is encrypted and kept wholly within the Evizone platform, making it impossible for anyone to access your data – whether it’s a KRACK attack or a traditional systems breach.
