IoT Could Stand for Internet of Threats

As billions of things, from phones and TVs to watches and lightbulbs, become smart and connected, enterprises everywhere become less secure. The reality is these devices are creating openings that can be exploited by attackers to eavesdrop, steal data and compromise your ongoing business operations.

How? It’s really a combination of design and opportunity. Many of these devices are built with convenience, not security, in mind, so they often have vulnerable interfaces, unprotected storage, hardcoded backdoors, unencrypted communications, and insecure pairing procedures that can be exploited. They also typically communicate over the “air”, via open hotspots, unmanaged or public wireless networks, and peer-to-peer (P2P) wireless connections, so they are completely invisible to your traditional enterprise management and security systems. 

Harmony IoT shuts down these attack openings, giving you total visibility into all IoT activity and protecting you from IoT and wireless-born attacks. 

 
 

All You Need to Protect Your Assets and Airspace from IoT attacks

Harmony IoT allows you to embrace IoT and wireless devices, giving you an enterprise-grade defense that quickly and easily identifies, monitors and protects all the smart connected devices operating in and around your business. With Harmony IoT you know exactly what’s going on and can protect your critical assets from IoT and wireless attacks.

Total visibility to your Airspace

Harmony IoT continuously monitors and analyzes all the smart connected devices in your airspace.

The moment any device enters your airspace, it is identified and tracked, so you know exactly what’s happening at all times. In addition, Harmony IoT compares what a device IS doing, with what it SHOULD be doing. These comparisons are based on the simultaneous analysis of a variety of parameters, including the device type – Harmony IoT has the largest database of wireless computing devices and activities in the world – attributes (who owns it, where it’s coming from, when it’s connecting), and other learned behaviors.

Proactive Threat Detection

Harmony IoT accurately identifies vulnerabilities and threats from smart connected devices active in your environment.

Uniquely combines positive detection, which looks at how a device should be behaving, with negative detection capabilities, which identify known attack behaviors, to produce high fidelity alerts that allow you to quickly understand and address any risks in your environment. Harmony IoT’s cutting edge data science approach pinpoints misconfigurations, software bugs and other vulnerabilities in the environment that need to be addressed, as well as zero-day threats coming from smart connected devices.

Real-Time Attack Mitigation

Harmony IoT automatically prevents malicious IoT activity and policy violations, in real-time, to keep your business going.

Interrupts or disconnects wireless connections to prevent data transfers and isolate threats in your environment. Harmony IoT can also enforce IoT policies that align with your business and compliance objectives. For example, Harmony IoT can ensure guests can’t connect to internal assets or devices can’t be connected to wired and wireless networks simultaneously. The detailed, actionable information on the IoT activity in your environment can be integrated to improve the intelligence and effectiveness of your overall security infrastructure.

 

It’s quick and simple to add Harmony IoT defenses to your cybersecurity infrastructure to get the visibility and protection you need for the activity of smart connected devices in your environment. Small, non-intrusive Harmony IoT Smart Protectors can be deployed anywhere within your sites to protect your surrounding airspace. The Harmony IoT Cloud Service analyzes metadata collected by the Smart Protectors and pushes down policies and threat mitigation to keep your critical assets safe.

How It Works

Harmony IoT

Smart Protectors

  • Continuously detects and monitors all smart connected devices

  • Deploy the sensors throughout your environment to get a clear understanding of what's going on in your airspace

  • Operates completely independently, out-of-band, so there are no agent or updates to worry about

Harmony IoT

 Cloud Service

  • Applies proprietary artificial intelligence (Al), which combines machine learning algorithms and big data science, to continuously learn about your environment and profile all your smart connected devices.

  • Pinpoints malicious activities and threats.

  • Initiates automated mitigation responses, when appropriate (per policy).

 

The Harmony IoT Difference

24/7 Monitoring

Using advanced algorithms working around the clock, Harmony IoT is constantly learning about your environment and fine-tuning defenses to give you the best protection possible.

Accurate Detection

Thanks to the unique combination of positive and negative detection and proprietary machine learning algorithms, Harmony IoT produces high fidelity alerts that pinpoint malicious IoT activity and policy violations.

Simple

Deployment

No access to your networks or your assets is required

– the Harmony IoT Smart Protectors are completely independent and out-of-band.

Zero Touch

Cutting-edge auto-mitigation techniques mean human intervention is only needed in the most extreme circumstances.

Complete Coverage

Harmony IoT Smart Protectors can be strategically placed around your organization to deliver maximum coverage of your wireless airspace - when it enters, we will see it!

SOC Integration

Our solution easily integrates with the most popular SIEM systems around to give you visibility and control over IoT from anywhere.
