Hospitality

How Secure is Your IoT?

In hospitality, IoT devices can unlock enormous value: improving customer experience while reducing costs. Risks relating to cyber security threaten this value creation. We can help you manage those risks.

The Rise of IoT in Hospitality

According to a recent research, the top seven uses for IoT in Hospitality are:

  1. Guestroom Automation
  2. Predictive Maintenance
  3. Mobile Engagement
  4. Hyper-Personalization
  5. Location-based Interactions
  6. Natural User Interfaces
  7. API’s & Third-Party Integration

The explosion of IoT in hospitality has created a massive attack surface in most hospitality networks. Imagine the data that exposes as vulnerable to a potential cyber-attacker to leverage if they choose to infiltrate the network via one of the many undetected IoT devices. Also, imagine how hard it is to have an accurate count of all the IoT devices given the large array of use. Cyber-attackers could leverage a ransomware attack that turns off the heating and air conditioning or locks people out of rooms.

Reduce IoT Risk in Hospitality

In order for your hospitality business to mitigate the risks created by IoT devices, you need the ability to:

  1. Detect and identify 100% of the devices on your network – across all of your segments;
  2. Gain visibility down to the firmware level for unmanaged devices;
  3. Explore tailored intelligence about the devices on your network; and
  4. Generate risk reports and monitor alerts to support continuous risk management.

Finite State’s cybersecurity platform leverages its unique IoT device and firmware risk database to give unparalleled visibility into the exponentially growing number of IoT devices that now make up a significant percentage of most hospitality enterprises. Just as important, Finite State delivers a proactive solution that leverages both defensive and responsive capabilities to defend the network, by detecting threats and employing decoys, “honey pots,” and other techniques to assess the risk, isolate the attack, and defend your network.

The true potential of IoT happens only when it’s secure. Finite State enables the IoT revolution by providing that security.
