It has faced enormous DDoS attacks by assumed nation-state adversaries, and following the election of Donald Trump, sign-ups at the service doubled. Users can navigate to the Tor network through: https://protonirockerxow.onion Today, ProtonMail is announcing the introduction of a Tor hidden service, or onion site, which will allow users to directly connect to their encrypted email accounts through the Tor network at the URL https://protonirockerxow.onion, which ProtonMail said it expended "considerable CPU time" to generate for the sake of finding a hash that was more human readable and less prone to phishing. Additionally, the onion site also has a valid SSL certificate issued to Proton Technologies AG by DigiCert.
This is a reasonably novel innovation as the classical Certificate Authority system isn't compatible with Tor, where onion addresses are self-generated rather than purchased from a registrar. Yen told The Register: "The problem is, if you act as your own CA, you run the issue of not trusting that certificate authority by default." As such, ProtonMail reached out to the Tor Project, which suggested it get in touch with DigiCert, who had previously provided the CA service for Facebook. "Given ProtonMail's recent growth, we realize that the censorship of ProtonMail in certain countries is inevitable and we are proactively working to prevent this." said Yen. "Tor provides a way to circumvent certain Internet blocks so improving our compatibility with Tor is a natural first step." In the coming months, the Tor Project stated it would be "making additional security and privacy enhancements to ProtonMail, including finishing some of the leftover items from our 2016 Security Roadmap". ® Sponsored: Want to know more about Privileged Access Management?

Kudelski Group, a $1 billion Swiss security conglomerate, has acquired M&S Technologies, No. 33 on the CRN Solution Provider 500, one of the top security solution providers in the country.
The acquisition of the Dallas-based M&S makes Kudelski Security, which acquired its first U.S. solution provider seven months ago, one of the top three pure-play cyber security solution providers in the country, said Kudelski Security CEO Rich Fennessy.
Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
M&S, which has 46 employees, a slew of Fortune 2000 customers and key security partnerships from the likes of McAfee, Juniper, Fortinet and Sophos, provides Kudelski Security with critical scale as it moves to become a dominant player in the U.S. and throughout the world, said Fennessy.
"In order to deliver great solutions to clients, you need scale," said Fennessy in an interview with CRN. "M&S strengthens our technology and technology services business.
It is the next step in our agenda to extend into the U.S. market. You are going to see us continue through acquisitions and organically fill out that footprint across the United States."
Fennessy said he and his team have eyes on expanding into California and the Northeast and are actively eyeing more than 10 companies as potential acquisition targets.
"We continue to be very active looking at cool regional (solution provider) companies and cool technology companies that could accelerate the growth of our strategy," said Fennessy. "Whether that means acquiring two or 10 companies, we'll have to see."
Some regional security solution providers have built robust, local businesses, but are having challenges competing on a national level, with customers demanding national and even global support, said Fennessy.
"We are seeing a great opportunity to bring those companies under the fold and help extend our total value proposition to them and their customers," he said. "Their salespeople and engineers love it because it provides more value to their clients and the partners they have been doing business with."
The Kudelski acquisition spree sets up a security showdown of sorts with other major security solution providers including Optiv Security (the company created from the merger of Accuvant and FishNet Security), which was acquired in December by the private equity arm of global leveraged buyout firm KKR.
Fennessy, the former CEO of FishNet, and one of the driving forces behind the deal that led to the creation of Optiv, said Kudelski's status as a global business without private equity ownership provides the company with a marked advantage in the global security battle.
