Security of Things (SoT)

Secure your connected devices

Let us identify, monitor, visualize and protect
your enterprise network for you.

Statistics state that 93% of enterprises will adopt IoT technology and 80% of industrial manufacturing companies will adopt IoT technology leading to the staggering increase in IoT devices. There will be 41 billion IoT devices by 2027.

However, as per the data of CSO Online, 61% of organizations have experienced an IoT security incident and according to Symantec, IoT devices experience an average of 5,200 attacks per month.

What’s their Need?

Every connected device the enterprise or industry adds to the network for functionality or convenience, adds a concern from a privacy, confidentiality, or integrity angle. It can be an attractive target for people who want to make a profit off, of your valuable enterprise data.

The IoT devices can be broadly classified in 3 categories – a data processor, a data collector, or a data correlator.

The IoT devices can broadly cause attacks in the below categories.

  1. An Availability attack where the IoT device can affect the network availability and either bring it down partially or fully.
  2. An Integrity attack where the IoT device can manipulate data either corrupting it, encrypting it for the purpose of financial gain or disruption.
  3. A Confidentiality attack where the IoT device can be a backdoor letting a hacker into the network.

These attacks can harm the enterprise causing outage and/or direct or indirect loss of revenue and reputation.

Hence, with IoT taking a centre stage and machines surpassing the humans, the security landscape changes from endpoint security to Security of Things (SoT).

Difficulties to Achieve the Need

The lack of standards and industry practices set by government and industry forums and loose compliance by IoT devices exposes them to security risk.

IoT devices, especially the Industrial IoT devices are made with a focus on ease of use rather than security, thereby sacrificing security.

The key challenge is that there is no central database of all IoT devices. The functionality, prerequisites, and network footprint of the IoT devices. Secondly, the endpoint protection becomes useless for an IoT device because of the type of hardware it is usually based on.

The Security of Things, therefore, cannot be on the IoT device.

The Solution

Since Wi-Fi is the preferred mechanism to connect with most IoT devices, Ray offers Security of Things (SoT) to identify, monitor, visualize and protect the Enterprise network.

Ray has a pre-built library of 1000s of IoT devices and it keeps growing.

Ray doesn’t use any agent or scanning mechanism for IoT, but rather uses the network footprint and traffic signatures to identify the IoT device.

Once identified, the SoT Machine Learning algorithm provides real-time & continuous Vulnerability Assessment of IoT devices. Ray compares the device signatures across the IoT device signatures across all the Ray installations globally and uses anomaly detection to identify anomalies in behaviour via changes in network traffic, direction of traffic, time, usage patterns.

Upon any indication of potential threat or anomaly, SoT can respond via Network Disconnect or Network Quarantine of the IoT device.

The Benefits

  • No Agent. No Scanning.
  • Real-time & continuous Vulnerability Assessment
  • Cloud-based Device Knowledgebase of SoT Devices
  • Automatic Detection & Response (Disconnect or Quarantine)

Our concern is securing your privacy, confidentiality
and integrity via Ray’s Security of Things (SoT).
