BETHESDA, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--KoolSpan has joined the Cybersecurity Tech Accord, a watershed agreement to defend all customers from malicious attacks by cybercriminal enterprises and nation-states. The Tech Accord companies oversee important aspects of the world’s communications infrastructure including encryption, telecommunications, cloud-based customer relationship management, collaboration tools, endpoint security, and datacenter security.
"Protecting the cybersecurity and privacy of businesses and people is the defining challenge of our age, and the technologies that protect all of us must be protected,” said Elad Yoran, Executive Chairman, KoolSpan. “The Cybersecurity Tech Accord provides an important framework for leading companies to define principles that do so."
All Cybersecurity Tech Accord signatory companies make commitments in four areas:
The companies will mount a stronger defense against cyberattacks, recognizing that everyone deserves protection. The companies pledged to protect all customers globally regardless of the motivation for attacks.
The companies will not help governments launch cyberattacks against innocent citizens and enterprises, and will protect against tampering or exploitation of their products and services through every stage of development, design and distribution.
The companies will do more to empower developers and those that use their technology, helping them protect themselves. This may include joint work on new security practices and new features the companies can deploy in their individual products and services.
The companies will build on existing relationships and establish partnerships with industry, civil society and security researchers to improve collaboration, coordinate vulnerability disclosures, share threats and minimize the potential for malicious code into cyberspace.
