WHAT’S NEW (3)

I’m on the Tube!

Three and EE customers can look forward to uninterrupted mobile use across the London Underground network after the two mobile operators became the first to partner with BAI Communications (BAI) in the delivery of 4G and 5G-ready connectivity on the London Underground. In June 2020, Transport for London (TfL) awarded BAI a 20-year concession to provide mobile coverage in ticket halls, platforms and tunnels across the entire Underground network. Billy D’Arcy, CEO of BAI Communications UK, said: “We’re pleased to welcome Three and EE as our launch partners and the first operators who will be transforming customer experience on the London Underground by enabling them to access seamless, 5G-ready connectivity.” The first stations (on the new Elizabeth Line) are due to be connected this year, with all stations and tunnels scheduled to have uninterrupted mobile coverage by the end of 2024. https://tfl.gov.uk

Achievement by Brother UK of Carbon Neutral status

Carbon neutral cartridge recycling 

Brother UK has achieved cfor its cartridge recycling centre in Ruabon, North Wales, following an audit of Scope 1 and 2 emissions by The Carbon Trust and the purchase of carbon credits to offset the 173 tonnes of CO2e produced by the site in FY2020. Offsets will be used to support renewable energy projects in Kenya, Ghana, Indonesia and India, to provide 820,000 fuel-efficient stoves to help reduce deforestation and to make affordable water filters. Brother’s Ruabon facility is powered by 100% green-certified electricity and sends no waste to landfill. For every cartridge returned by customers, Brother makes a donation to the rainforest charity CoolEarth. Brother Group aims to achieve net-zero carbon emissions across global operations by 2050, with a 65% reduction in Scope 1 and 2 emissions (from 2015 levels) by 2030. www.brother.co.uk

F-secyre USB Armory

Encrypted USB drive 

The F-Secure Armory Drive combines encrypted storage on the world’s smallest secure-by-design computer with multifactor authentication. The solution, which works on any desktop or laptop without the need for additional drivers or software, consists of two parts: firmware, which adds F-Secure Armory Drive functionality to the USB armory; and an iOS app that turns an iPhone into an authentication mechanism for data stored on the device and an unlimited number of microSD cards encrypted by the solution. Using an iPhone for authentication means that even if a microSD card or the USB armory is lost/stolen, data stored on it remains secure. It also ensures the solution’s encryption keys are not exposed to laptops/desktops that might have been compromised. Additional security is provided by the authentication of firmware updates pushed to the USB armory by the desktop installer and the device itself, which helps protect the system from compromise via malicious updates – a common tactic in supply chain attacks. www.f-secure.com/armory-drive
