Secure IoT Device Management
REDUCE YOUR ‘ATTACK SURFACE’ BY ENSURING YOUR IoT DEVICES ARE SECURE
Secure IoT device management focuses on protecting your internet-enabled devices that connect to each other on wireless networks. With some six billion devices in use – and rapidly growing due to 5G and the ever increasing demand for data – unauthorised access to your networks can happen where ever the devices are - creating multiple ‘doors’ that need to be secured.
IoT DEVICES CAN CREATE ENORMOUS BUSINESS BENEFIT – SO KEEP THEM SAFE
Securing IoT devices can be more complicated than securing a laptop or even a mobile phone, as many of these devices are not designed with security in mind. How you deploy your devices and what they connect to can often make them more vulnerable than the manufacturer’s built-in security can cope with.
IoT devices have proliferated across virtually all industries along with the uptake of digital, and are creating rich and valuable data assets. However, many devices suffer from outdated systems, unpatched vulnerabilities and unsecured data, and the increasingly connected nature of networks (including devices, communication channels and applications) presents an ever widening attack surface for hackers.
WE MAKE IT SIMPLE TO GET PROTECTED
At Optic we have a team of trained and licensed Cyber Specialists who know everything from cracking into your smart printer or Wifi from the carpark through to deploying ‘sniffers’ on your network traffic. In plain business English, they can talk you through how best to manage your IoT devices and the networks they connect to.
This knowledge is critical because there are big differences between IoT devices, and securing them depends on the type and model of the device. Inside an office building, a smart bulb will be from a different manufacturer than the smart printer; and the overall controlling system that runs through the office will have its own unique operating system.
To effectively secure these disparate IoT devices, an overarching multi-layered security plan and constant maintenance is necessary.
FOLLOW BEST PRACTICE, STAY UP TO DATE, TRAIN YOUR TEAMS
Firstly we’ll understand what you use IoT for
By understanding your business aims and use of IoT devices and the types of information they give you, Optic can ensure that whatever security measures we design don’t interfere with how you work.
We’ll audit and map out all the IoT and mobile devices you use
Optic access specialists will survey your building and all access points in conjunction with any existing security measures.
Review of recommendations and options
Optic will discuss with your team the recommended approach to your IoT security management, any software or hardware you might need and why, and we’ll also help explain how to train your security staff in best practice for your IoT growth and management.
