As more enterprises embark on their digital journeys, the number of devices on enterprise networks is exploding. Among them are a rising number of untrusted devices: IoT, BYOD, guest devices, etc. A Gartner Research predicts that there will be over 25 billion connected IoT devices by the end of 2022, more than the double of 2021. One noticeable game changer is the need for those autonomous devices to have Internet access to operate. This exposes organizations to IoT network security and compliance risks. 1.5 billion IoT attacks occurred in the first half of 2021.
Cloudi-Fi takes into account IoT’s nature to answer their security challenges.
IoT are deployed by facilities or networking teams and are often invisible to security teams. Yet IoT are subject to increased cybersecurity risks. A corrupted IoT not only fails to function, but can also damage a company's image depending on how it is used on the Internet. Considering the IoT's access to Internet from a security posture rather than from a local network access is critical.
Cloudi-Fi’s solution controls access of IoT assets and automates IoT network security rules accordingly. The solution provides a unified, global and cloud-based untrusted device and users monitoring, allowing CISOs a holistic control combined with a Zero Trust strategy.
IoT network security starts with the ability to properly identify the ressource before applying security policies. The lack of IoT device visibility by security solutions prevents setting appropriate security guidelines and policies.
Cloudi-Fi’s IoT security solutions provide discovery, identification and classification of all IoT devices in line with a Zero Trust strategy.
IoT device security requires continuous and real time control to mitigate security risks. However the number and complexity of data to take into account requires the use of artificial intelligence (AI) to deliver swift responses.
Cloudi-Fi uses a machine learning based on device data, Internet traffic and global traffic.
IoT device access should be limited to specific and identified ressources. Implementing least access controls is key here.
Cloudi-Fi’s IoT access control allows the creation of IoT-specific security policies in partnership with security industry leaders.
