Lumeta Corporation today announced advancements to its cyber situational platform, Lumeta Spectre targeted at Internet of Things(IoT) and Industrial Control System (ICS) environments, enabling customers to confidently protect their extended digital network connected to IoT, especially when it comes to critical infrastructure. The new Spectre for IoTsolution further strengthens the company’s promise to deliver complete network visibility and real-time change monitoring in any environment, as organizations continue to adopt IP-based technology in these specialized environments.

Organizations are facing tremendous pressure to modernize and transform their IT to order to leverage IoT. This is particularly apparent in the rapid adoption of IoT solutions within ICS and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) organizations.

According to Forrester’s 2018 predictions, “IoT security issues will remain a threat. Security vulnerabilities are a significant worry for firms deploying IoT solutions – in fact, it’s the top concern of organizations looking at deploying IoT solutions. However, most firms don’t consistently mitigate IoT-specific security threats and business pressures overwhelm technology security concerns. In 2018, we’ll see more IoT-related attacks like the Mirai botnet that caused havoc – except they’ll grow bigger in scale and impact.” 1

Unfortunately, many of the current technologies billed as IoT security solutions focus on device profiling or protocol analysis, and lack the level of visibility and scale required to effectively secure IoT environments. Research by Lumeta determined that over 40 percent of today’s dynamic networks, endpoints, cloud infrastructure are unknown, unmanaged, rogue or participating in shadow IT, leading to significant infrastructure blind spots and network leaks by enterprise and government departments alike. Most often, these blind spots result from not having a comprehensive understanding of the entire network infrastructure, including within and across IT, OT or cloud environments.

Lumeta Spectre for IoT extends seamlessly and comprehensively beyond IT environments into OT and cloud that employ IP-enabled technology to deliver full visibility in private or hybrid cloud deployments, detecting leak paths, malicious network activity and ensuring segmentation. The platform’s real-time change monitoring capabilities can detect segmentation and communication violations, leak paths and anomalous activity and threats with the potential to cause major damage to critical operations.

“Enabling IoT has many benefits, but also presents new security challenges that can only be solved with authoritative, real-time network, endpoint, and cloud visibility,” said Pat Donnellan, chief executive officer of Lumeta. “It seems that every day a new product has labeled itself as an IoT-solution, and it can be hard for customers to weed through a crowded and often fundamentally flawed market. Lumeta is uniquely positioned to enable users with real-time cyber situational awareness, delivering 100 percent visibility across their IoT-enabled network regardless of environment.”

Customers that rely on Lumeta include global Fortune 500 companies in industries such as financial services, technology, manufacturing, healthcare, and government.
