Real time threat intelligence for IoT gateways

Webroot Software : 16 May, 2016  (New Product)
Threat protection provided to IoT gateways to protect against malicious software and denial of service attacks
Real time threat intelligence for IoT gateways

Webroot has released Webroot BrightCloud Threat Intelligence for IoT Gateways. The cybersecurity service is offered to Internet of Things (IoT) Gateway partners and developers of IoT solutions to augment real-time protection against malicious threats, unauthorized network access, and Denial of Service (DoS) attacks.

"IoT Gateways are set to become a key catalyst for rapid development of the IoT and have an expected compound annual growth rate of over 130% between 2015 and 2020," said Robin Duke-Woolley, CEO of IoT analyst firm Beecham Research. "Webroot's approach to IoT Security focusing on IoT gateways is highly complementary to other methods and offers a powerful addition for rapidly addressing security needs in this fast growing market."  

IoT gateways are emerging as a preferred network element to securely connect legacy and next-generation devices to the IoT. However, many IoT gateways are built without sufficient security or intelligence to properly protect critical infrastructure. BrightCloud Threat Intelligence for IoT Gateways marks the next step in securing the IoT through Smarter Cybersecurity™ solutions. This service will now enable IoT Solution providers, IoT platform providers, and managed security service providers (MSSPs) to secure their systems against advanced and persistent network based threats.

“IoT gateways are now being designed to serve as a bridge between intelligent things, IP addressable systems, and their command and control systems,” said John Sirianni, vice president of IoT strategic partnerships at Webroot. “However, when it comes to protecting critical infrastructure, traditional cybersecurity approaches are difficult to integrate and often don’t keep pace with operational devices. BrightCloud Threat Intelligence for IoT Gateways offers the most effective way to secure critical, cloud-connected infrastructure against malicious inbound and outbound communications in real-time by using collective threat intelligence.”
