This new digital workforce has pushed most of the workforce to go online, including video conferencing that has led to privacy issues and phishing attempts, including ransomware attacks. Since most of the workforce today depends on online services, both mobile and web services which tend to have a weak security system, due to which cyber security threats are becoming more prominent.
The attacker uses a list of phone numbers or email addresses and delivers a message with a compelling call to action. (For example, the user may be told that he or she needs to log in and verify transactions.) Usually, it sends users to a fake website where the users provide their username and password.
The attacker installs a program (often via a virus) that captures every keystroke on the user’s computer, including sites visited, usernames, passwords, answers to security questions, and more.
The attacker takes advantage of the fact that users often use the same username and password on multiple accounts by attempting to use stolen credential pairs to gain access to many different sites and apps.
Social engineering is the term used for a broad range of malicious activities accomplished through human interactions. It uses psychological manipulation to trick users into making security mistakes or giving away sensitive information.
Ransomware is malware that employs encryption to hold a victim’s information at ransom. A user or organization’s critical data is encrypted so that they cannot access files, databases, or applications. A ransom is then demanded to provide access.
A distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack is a malicious attempt to disrupt the normal traffic of a targeted server, service or network by overwhelming the target or its surrounding infrastructure with a flood of Internet traffic.
AmbiSecure is Ambimat’s umbrella offering into the cybersecurity space. The offering is divided into two different components:
AmbiSecure provides the hardware-level foundation for security, which enables to secure end-to-end communications while maintaining robust network performance in a large city wide infrastructure.Learn More

Products of all kinds are increasingly vulnerable to sophisticated breaches as more of their intellectual property shifts to the silicon layer. We understand the unique vulnerabilities of the development and deployment cycle – and how those vulnerabilities differ across myriad forms of software, hardware, and integrated products.
AmbiSecure combine the latest security research with our time-tested techniques to provide critical security services to meet your business goals and strengthen security resiliency. With AmbiSecure’s IoT security offering protecting IoT devices will become plug and play.
We’re committed to delivering security without compromise, secure your enterprise against tomorrow's threats, today. Protect users, applications and data with AmbiSecure’s Solutions. We have a comprehensive product portfolio for security operations, empowering enterprises
A simple password doesn’t cut it for most systems, especially ones with higher risks or sensitivity attached to them. One of the most effective ways of ensuring authentication is with “Multi-Factor Authentication”, or MFA. It is a method of access control in which a user is granted access only after successfully presenting at least two separate pieces of evidence to an authentication mechanism within the following categories:
Something you “know”: a password or PIN, or an answer to a question
Something you “have”: a token, credit card or mobile device
Something you “are”: biometric data, such as fingerprints
AmbiSecure helps modernizes authentication with ease, bridging legacy MFA to modern protocols such as FIDO2. With the AmbiSecure, organizations can eliminate account takeovers while delivering a delightful user experience.
AmbiSecure is an ideal solution for an organization in enhancing its security by requiring its employee to identify themselves with more than a username and password. While important, usernames and passwords are vulnerable to brute force attacks and can be stolen by third parties. Enforcing the use of an MFA factor like a physical hardware card or key means increased confidence that your organization will stay safe from cybercriminals.
AmbiSecure has adopted this standard and developed its FIDO solutions. The products in this range are based on the U2F (Universal Second Factor) and FIDO 2 protocols. The international FIDO (Fast IDentity Online) alliance’s function is to propose and promote security architectures:
That goes beyond password and One-Time-Password (OTP) solutions, it provides security by combining hardware-based authentication
It provides a simple and intuitive authentication experience that users can ensure rapid adoption and organizational security with the click of a button.
It is more straightforward for consumers to use the system to perform the tasks safely and, effectively while enjoying the experience.
How can organizations achieve a seamless and passwordless login experience from all devices? How can organizations address new use cases without having to rip and replace their authentication methods?
AmbiSecure, a pioneer in Cybersecurity, addresses these issues with two AmbiSecure FIDO2 devices: the AmbiSecure FIDO Card (Smart Card) and AmbiSecure FIDO Security Key (USB token). These solutions enable organizations to secure cloud adoption and secure bridge access across hybrid environments via integrated access management and authentication.
This section is our attempt to help budding entrepreneurs of today understand how to build a hardware product. We wish to teach engineers of today what it takes to go from a concept or an idea all the way to seeing how to get their product on the shelves of brick and mortar stores or on online stores.
We invite our existing clients and/or industry experts to share their knowledge with our audience.
