Don’t Buy Into The IoT Security Hype!
The Internet of Things (IoT) is disrupting the thinking of what is actually networked. Its enabling greater centralized control and management over more and more services. A category of IoT is focused squarely on enabling Industrial Control Systems (ICS) associated with manufacturing and utilities to take advantage of IP-based networking.
Unfortunately, the caveat is that when we move to non-proprietary communication and network technologies for these systems and use more off-the-shelf commercial operating systems, we also expose them to additional cyber risk. In cases where we have separation of IT and OT Networks, that separation is less distinct and the walls that were in place are much more porous leaving them vulnerable to data leakage, malware transmissions, and segmentation violations. Vendors that claim device profiling or deep protocol knowledge or machine learning are many years out from offering real value versus today’s real threats.
Lumeta brings organizations concerned about IoT and ICS infrastructure Cyber Situational Awareness by providing unmatched real-time network visibility, context, breach and segmentation analytics to understand changes to infrastructure in real-time, segmentation violations and dangerous leak paths between IT and OT environments but also to the Internet.
