Sydney – 11 January, 2018 – Tech21 today announced three brand new protective cases for Apple iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus at Showstoppers, CES 2018.
The new range brings several innovations to the brand’s already strong iPhone protection line-up, including a limited edition Chinese New Year case designed in collaboration with cut paper artist Bovey Lee, a premium vegan leather case, and the Evo Max, the brand’s most protective case ever, which offers a scientifically proven four metres of drop protection.
As with all tech21’s products, these innovative new cases have been rigorously tested to ensure they have no impact on signal quality or wireless charging and are scientifically proven to protect smartphone devices drop after drop.
Tech21 gave attendees an exclusive preview of the new range at the Showstoppers event held at the Wynn Hotel on the first day of CES 2018. The event also allowed attendees to get up close and personal with tech21 through a virtual reality experience and a unique drop reaction game.
“CES is the global stage for innovation, so it was a natural fit to launch these new products at the show and further strengthen our already impressive iPhone lineup” said Colin Woodward, Chief Marketing Officer of tech21 “We understand the value users place on their smartphones and they deserve the latest innovation to ensure their devices are protected, drop after drop.”

Since 2005, tech21 has been developing the most advanced, scientifically proven cases and screen shields for mobile, tablet and laptop devices worldwide. tech21 combines science, engineering and British design to create products that address three core consumer benefits: style, protection and performance. As the brand evolves to continue meeting the needs of its consumers, tech21 has developed the most advanced impact protection material on the market – FlexShock™. The ultra-thin and lightweight material absorbs and dissipates force and can withstand drops of up to four metres. In addition, tech21 puts all its products through a rigorous testing program, and in an industry first has partnered with the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) to develop its testing methodology. This ensures that the tests tech21 products have to pass are overseen by independent experts. Tech21 is the number one phone protection brand in the UK and number two in the US.

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.
