When Securing "Things" Means Life or Death
Everywhere you look there's another flavor of consumer IoT device such as activity trackers and smart watches. However, in the medical world, new IoT technology is maintaining or in some instances saving lives. As new biomedical devices such as infusion pumps, wearable defibrillators and pacemakers promise to improve health and safety, they also open up new pathways for hackers to attempt to gain network access. Left unguarded, network-connected IoT devices can serve as an easy entry point for a hospital or healthcare facility to be infiltrated and thus an opportunity to prevent life sustaining technologies from functioning properly. While organizations have long relied on endpoint security and Network Access Control (NAC) solutions in these instances, these tools are no longer sufficient to protect the connected enterprise. Additionally, the vast majority of IoT devices lack the ability to run agent-based software or to be scanned remotely. This agentless fact therefore does not allow these IoT devices to communicate with traditional endpoint security and legacy NAC solutions that use an agent or supplicant to enforce access policies and authenticate to the network. Great Bay Software however, is truly unique because it can secure IoT devices regardless if they have an agent on board or not.
Discover, Onboard, Monitor and Enforce
- Discover and profile every device connected to a wired or wireless, homogeneous or heterogeneous network.
- Authenticate every device automatically and intelligently onboard them to the correct network segment.
- Continuously monitor for potential threats like MAC spoofing.
- Automatically enforce network access policies.
