2018 was a wild year for cybersecurity, ad tech, and the internet in general. In this blog, we explore the significant trends and security challenges that are likely to impact us in 2019 and beyond.
Internet of Things security is a misnomer. By default, the connected things that have entered our mass market electronics devices have gaping security flaws. Device manufacturers, OEMs, and consortiums are collaborating and building frameworks and specifications for securing IoT devices and endpoints that they connect to. zvelo’s artificial intelligence powered IoT security solutions include agentless device detection, profiling, and behavioral anomaly detection. Our approach is hardware-agnostic and offers the most advanced network and device insight for OEMs and equipment manufacturers.
For the second straight year, zvelo’s IoT Security Platform ranked among the finalists in ECD’s Innovation Awards for next-generation IoT frameworks aimed at securing business and residential networks from nefarious Internet of Things devices.Details
Particularly with the proliferation of IoT devices—network security has grown increasingly porous—leaving gaping holes. zvelo is working with router and gateway manufacturers to provide an IoT Security Platform that dynamically and actively profiles and monitors ALL network-connected devices—giving you complete network visibility to improve security for customer networks.Details
Last year, zvelo announced our IoT Security Platform—providing router and gateway manufacturers with a fully managed solution to improve security for IoT, BYOD, and other devices across the network. Powered by the same zveloAI cloud network that leads the industry in web content categorization and malicious detection engines—the zvelo IoT Security Platform leverages machine learning to perform agentless and hardware agnostic device identification and behavioral anomaly detection.Details
In a recent article published by IT Briefcase—zvelo Security Analyst, Louis Creager, outlined and describes one of the most prominent trends threatening router networks around the world. Ubiquitous as they are in our households, relatively few consumers are conscious of the firmware running on their home routerDetails
One of the largest security gaps in 2018—one that leaves devices open to malware, botnets, and use in DDoS attacks—is the lack of commitment from router and gateway manufacturers. But what is the incentive for OEMs to build the infrastructure and systems to maintain and update device firmware even after just a few years?Details
So what does IoT Security mean in a rapidly growing device ecosystem? Chuck Martin, Host of The Voices of IoT podcast, and zvelo CEO, Jeff Finn, sat down to discuss the current state of security in the exploding IoT market.Details
In an article on ITPro, Jeff Finn writes about how the state of IoT cybersecurity is reaching a tipping point, forcing IoT device manufacturers to work partners that excel at networking. “The writing on the wall for IoT device manufacturers is to get serious about security and develop fruitful channel partnerships with network technology providers.
Once you see this vulnerability in action, it’s easy to imagine how easily devices can be exploited. Simple vulnerability hacks and tactics such as this can be used in coordination with home routers, smart speakers, video surveillance equipment, and much more to create havoc.
