Securing IoT: Trust No Thing

Presented by

Jianpeng Mo - VP of Engineering at OPSWAT & Deborah Galea – Security Evangelist at OPSWAT

About this talk

As IoT devices are increasing in popularity, so are IoT cyberattacks. In this Webinar we will describe the characteristics of IoT Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs), discuss the specific challenges of IoT cyberattacks, and provide recommended defense strategies for the IoT environment. The following topics will be covered: • Recent IoT Security Incidents • Reasons for IoT Attacks • IoT Security Challenges • The IoT Kill Chain • Addressing IoT Firmware Vulnerabilities • Preventing Threats in IoT Data and Files • Securing IoT with OPSWAT About the Speakers: Jianpeng Mo - VP of Engineering at OPSWAT Jianpeng leads OPSWAT development teams for device compliance management solutions. He has been granted 6 U.S. patents for device encryption, network access control, and vulnerability assessment technologies. Deborah Galea – Security Evangelist at OPSWAT Deborah is a seasoned enterprise cybersecurity expert with 20+ years of experience in the industry and is dedicated to identifying solutions that help companies of all sizes secure the data workflow in their organization.

Enterprises today are beset by cyber attacks. Threat actors send attacks through any channel they can, and meanwhile, the cost of compromise is only going up. To solve the challenges faced by modern enterprises and to shut off major attack vectors, we offer two product platforms: MetaDefender for threat prevention and MetaAccess for cloud access control and endpoint compliance. Our guiding principles: Trust No File. Trust No Device. Why MetaDefender? Enterprises are investing more resources than ever in cyber security – and yet there are more and larger breaches every year. Thousands of threat prevention solutions are on the market, but most of them share one crucial flaw: they are based on detection, but detection is never 100% perfect. That's why our advanced threat prevention platform, MetaDefender, is not only based on detection. MetaDefender uses OPSWAT's unique data sanitization (Content Disarm and Reconstruction) to remove threats from files altogether by reconstructing the files and, in the process, stripping out potentially malicious active content and scripts. MetaDefender complements data sanitization with multi-scanning and vulnerability assessment. Why MetaAccess? The move by enterprises to cloud computing, SaaS applications, and bring your own device (BYOD) environments over the last decade has eliminated the traditional network perimeter, making most network access control (NAC) solutions obsolete. To meet the challenges of modern cloud-based environments and provide administrators with an access control solution for the cloud, we built MetaAccess. MetaAccess keeps SaaS applications and cloud data safe and secure. It allows access based on device health and compliance to help administrators block risky devices from connecting to sensitive cloud data and SaaS applications.
