Internet of Things security, or IoT security, involves solutions for safeguarding smart devices and centralized user hubs from unwanted access or manipulation. The Internet of Things (IoT) is an increasingly prevalent network that allows disparate devices to communicate with each other, automate processes based on environmental or behavioral factors, and collect data based on performance and interactions. This advanced method of communication is not compatible with established methods of cybersecurity and is vulnerable to unique cyber threats that can steal data, corrupt software, or override commands. IoT security systems provide users with a secured data pipeline and constantly updated threat awareness and protection so devices can communicate and users can connect with, manage, and draw data with minimal risk.
The technologies of IoT security are expanding and evolving to meet the demands of the cybersecurity landscape and IoT as a whole. Products in this category share core qualities of other types of IT security software and are built to integrate with IoT management tools, to give companies complete, reliable use of this network. To ensure optimum security when deploying IoT devices within your organization, discuss best practices with cybersecurity consulting providers, and consider a qualified IoT development team to complete the build and deployment process.
To qualify for inclusion in the IoT Security category, a product must:
Azure Sphere is a new solution for creating highly-secured, Internet-connected microcontroller (MCU) devices. It provides a foundation of security and connectivity that allows you to create the intelligent products and experiences that customers love—and get them to market quickly—at a price point that enables the Internet of Things (IoT) at scale.
Symantec Critical System Protection is a lightweight security client designed to secure the Internet of Things (IoT) by protecting the endpoint and embedded devices. It offers manufacturers and asset owners of embedded systems robust signatureless, host-based protection in managed and unmanaged scenarios, without compromising device performance.
Beezz is the first security solution built specifically to protect against the new and growing vulnerabilities of the IOT universe. Utilizing proprietary technology and advanced algorithms, the Beezz solution does what no one has succeeded in doing so far, simplify and unify the complex and inefficient IOT security process.
BROADKEY is a secure key management software solution for IoT security, based on SRAM PUF technology. This patented technology is able to extract identifiers from the uniqueness that is inherent to every piece of silicon. BROADKEY dynamically reconstructs on-chip secret keys without ever storing those keys. SRAM PUF-based keys are bound to a device in such a way that they cannot be cloned, copied or in any way extracted from the device.
ZingBox IoT Guardian provides visibility into the nature and actions of all connected devices. Because it builds the deep knowledge of each individual device’s trusted behavior, it can automatically sense, identify, and classify connected devices. Unlike traditional end-point security products, IoT Guardian eliminates the need to install and manage software agents
To instill trust in the diverse IoT infrastructure, ZingBox invented the IoT personality-based approach to secure IoT. Each IoT device exhibits certain limited set of functions, flow and vulnerabilities regardless of where it is deployed, a.k.a IoT personality. This approach discerns each device's behaviors and detects any unusual activities to enforce trust amongst connected devices. Traditional security solutions focus on data protection; ZingBox goes further to provide service protection for business continuity.
LynxOS is a deterministic, hard real-time operating system that provides POSIX-conformant APIs in a small-footprint embedded kernel. LynxOS provides symmetric multi-processing support to fully take advantage of multi-core/multi-threaded processors. LynxOS 7.0 includes new tool chains, debuggers and cross-development host support.
Mocana provides mission-critical IoT security solutions for embedded systems and the Internet of Things. Our software is used by hundreds of companies to secure millions of IoT endpoints, controllers and gateways. Our comprehensive device-to-cloud platform is designed to operate across complex, multi-vendor environments where performance and security are mission-critical.
Great Bay Software is an IoT security and operational efficiency leader providing comprehensive visibility and control over endpoints on the network so organizations can secure data, preserve customer trust and protect revenue.
