After researching IoT security. I’ve decided to maintain a list of companies which offer IoT (internet of things) security tools and solutions. Feel free to share your solutions, feedback and tips for securing IoT devices. This list will continue to grow in the coming days, week, months and beyond.
In the aftermath of the 2016 DDoS cyber attack on DYN’s DNS servers via IoT devices, a few key questions arose. The most important being: How do we protect IoT devices from future compromise? DDoS attacks are not new, however DDoS attacks and other malicious attacks using IoT devices are an emerging threat. There are millions of these devices connected to the internet. That number is growing rapidly with the explosion of the IoT industry. The DDoS attacks on October 21st 2016 were already predicted by many almost a year in advance. However, the question was then, and is now: How do you patch a ‘thing’?
That’s part of the problem, many IoT devices are limited to just firmware updates and cannot be patched for specific security flaws. In addition, limited or non-existent UIs (user interfaces) is another contributing factor to IoT’s lack of security. Unlike web servers, computers, smartphones and other security minded internet connected devices, many IoT devices lack built-in security features such as a basic firewall or strong passwords. This makes securing IoT devices critical. As such, here’s my list of…
