Complex, global supply chains are hindering the ability of OEMs to fully understand cybersecurity risks in their products, and making it nearly impossible to properly document and communicate potential risks to end users of your equipment.
Transparency improves security. By understanding the risk that each connected device introduces to any network, you and your customers can make more-informed risk management decisions. Yet until now, it’s been difficult for OEMs to fully understand all components of its software supply chain, and nearly impossible to properly document and communicate potential risks to end users of your equipment.
Finite State delivers deep insights on risk exposure so you can determine whether that risk is acceptable to you and to your end users. We start by analyzing the vulnerabilities buried in your connected devices. Automated analysis of the firmware inside your devices provides a more complete risk profile of the device, and makes it easier to deliver transparency to both end users and regulators.
Our platform not only uncovers hidden firmware vulnerabilities but also empowers manufacturers with the ability to proactively mitigate IoT risk. At Finite State, we believe that cybersecurity should ultimately be viewed through the lens of risk management, and that increased transparency into these devices is critical to achieving better security for everyone.
IoT devices can contain more complex vulnerabilities than traditional security approaches can mitigate, such as:
Most IoT attacks simply exploit default and easily guessed credentials that users aren't required to change.
Weak and exposed cryptographic keys cause insecure data at rest and in transit.
Even the most secure services can be vulnerable if configured improperly. We ensure you're using secure configurations.
It is very common for manufacturers to accidentally package debugging tools in their release firmware packages.
Many IoT devices run complex web applications that can contain the gamut of website, database, and scripting vulnerabilities.
IoT devices are built upon a complex software supply chain, and many vulnerabilities are introduced by third parties.
Firmware updates are the most sensitive IoT device operations, and it's easy to introduce exploitable vulnerabilities.
Like any other computer, account and user management is critical in IoT devices. Make sure your firmware is doing it correctly.
IoT devices often run complex software, which can contain vulnerabilities from memory corruption to command injection.
