SYDNEY, Australia – 23 October 2017 – LifeProof built its reputation on sleek, ultra-protective iPhone cases. From 360-degree coverage to the first screenless waterproof case, the protection pioneer has always pushed the limits. LifeProof expands its lineup of action-ready cases with NËXT and SLΛM, two next-generation LifeProof cases that complement water-resistant devices, available now for iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus and coming soon for iPhone X.
LifeProof’s best-selling waterproof case line, FRĒ, will also be available soon for iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X.
“LifeProof changed the iPhone protection game with its industry-leading waterproof cases,” said LifeProof CEO Jim Parke. “Now, even those who don’t need a waterproof case can experience LifeProof protection with the introduction of NËXT and SLΛM. With the features available in today’s iPhones, sometimes all you need is a thin, light case that protects from drops and dirt. NËXT delivers that in style without sacrificing the quality we’re known for.”
NËXT boasts six layers of protection in an ultra-sleek package to keep iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X safe from drops, dirt and snow. The two-piece outer shell wraps securely around the phone and delivers maximum durability and drop defence. A raised bevel bolsters drop and touchscreen protection while the display is left uncovered for direct access to the glass. A clear outer layer prevents scuffs, scrapes and scratches and an inner lining seals the case and phone from dirt. An audio-transparent mesh covers the speakers to block dust and debris while audio flows freely.
In true LifeProof fashion, NËXT protects from drops up to 2 metres, carries an IP-5X rating for blocking dirt and dust and keeps snow out. It is available in four colours – Black, Beach Pebble, Seaside and Cactus Rose – and is also compatible with iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Pricing for NËXT is AU$89.95/NZ$99.95 for iPhone 8, AU$99.95/NZ$109.95 for iPhone 8 Plus and AU$89.95/NZ$99.95 for iPhone X.
With SLΛM, deflecting damage never looked so good. Engineered to withstand drops of up to 2 metres while maintaining a slim profile, SLΛM combines sport, style and safety for iPhone. A transparent shell reveals iPhone’s factory finish while the perimeter flashes one of four available colour options – Night Flash, Lava Chaser, Aloha Sunset and Free Flow – and is also compatible with iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Pricing for SLΛM is AU$59.95/NZ$69.95 for iPhone 8, AU$69.95/NZ$79.95 for iPhone 8 Plus and AU$59.95/NZ$69.95 for iPhone X.
FRĒ will carry on the tradition of true four-proof protection. The two-piece shell cloaks iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus in 360 degrees of security. A built-in screen guard keeps the display free of scratches while the phone is fully sealed from water to 2 metres for up to an hour. FRĒ for iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are drop tested to 2 metres and block out dirt and snow. It will be available in six colours. Pricing for FRĒ is AU$129.95/NZ$139.95 for iPhone 8 and AU$99.95/NZ$124.95 for iPhone 8 Plus and AU$99.95/NZ$124.95 for iPhone X.

Email fraud is nothing new, but online criminals have become ever more-effective at spoofing their identities to trick employees into sending them money. The Australian Centre for Cyber Security (ACSC) recorded losses of over $20M to business email compromise (BEC) attacks last year alone, up 230 percent over the previous year – and the full amount is certain to be much larger.

No matter how robust your security, or how diligent your employees, network credentials are a free pass for cybercriminals. This is mostly because employees are relied upon for their own password management. And with more than 4.8 billion sets of stolen credentials said to be available online, odds are that at least a few of your employees’ user IDs and passwords are just waiting to be used by unscrupulous outsiders. Are you ready to stop them?

Cyber resilience will be particularly important as Australian organisations face increased pressure to quickly detect, respond to, and manage the repercussions of breaches in the wake of 2018’s Notifiable Data Breaches (NDB) scheme.
