On average, IoT devices have 100 times more vulnerabilities than are reported against them, making them the No. 1 attack vector for cyber criminals. Yet current enterprise security tactics do little to protect against an IoT attack because IoT devices are black boxes that cannot be viewed and secured from the inside by the users.
IoT is improving patient health and revolutionizing population medicine. The explosive growth of IoT in healthcare also creates massive blind spots in security. According to some estimates, two-thirds of IT security professionals within the healthcare industry see IoT as the top security risk. With Finite State, Healthcare providers and medical device manufacturers can proactively manage their risks, ensure regulatory compliance, and detect advanced threats targeting critical equipment.
With IoT vulnerabilities becoming the entry point of choice for cyber-attacks, IoT device and system manufacturers are becoming increasingly liable for attacks that lead to breaches of sensitive data, unauthorized access to corporate networks, and large-scale internet outages. Finite State offers proactive vulnerability management for anyone dependent upon third-party devices, components, firmware, or software. Our robust, automated vulnerability discovery uncovers the gamut of firmware risks from hardcoded credentials to complex memory corruption vulnerabilities.
The use of IoT in manufacturing and industrial factories is booming, but vulnerabilities in these devices can lead to a loss of proprietary data and breaches in the network. Even worse, there are numerous examples of cyber attacks against critical systems designed solely to disrupt or destroy. With the Finite State Platform, organizations benefit from unparalleled visibility into their critical networks. Our platform provides a look inside IoT devices—as if they were any other endpoint on the network—and uncovers hidden firmware vulnerabilities, while proactively mitigating IoT risk.
Today’s enterprise security stack isn’t effective in the age of rapidly growing IoT deployments. That’s because it was designed for endpoints that are fundamentally different than IoT devices:
Black box IoT devices create a massive blind spot on the network, preventing security teams from making informed, risk-based decisions. Don't blindly trust your devices. See through the blind spot with Finite State.
You can't secure what you can't see. Most IoT attacks result from attackers knowing more about what's on your network than you do. Change the equation. Adopt Finite State to gain 100% visibility into the devices on your network, including detailed insight into the firmware running on those devices.
The proliferation of IoT devices and their software vulnerabilities in the enterprise demands a fundamental change in legacy security stacks developed over the last 20 years. Security teams must be able to secure their networks and IoT devices with tools and processes they're comfortable with. See how we're advancing the security stack into the IoT era with the first comprehensive IT solution.
