Today, Senrio, an Internet of Things (IoT) cybersecurity solution, emerges from stealth mode with the launch of an IoT network cybersecurity platform that provides visibility and defense for networked embedded devices (NEDs) used in healthcare, critical infrastructure, retail and corporate environments.
“The market needs a comprehensive answer to the IoT dilemma: A dramatic increase of deployed devices, high susceptibility to attacks due to inherent vulnerabilities and high value of the accessible assets. Today, there are few solutions to this challenge. However, Senrio offers a much-needed new approach,” said Christina Richmond, Program Director, Security Services, IDC.
“We typically associate the term ‘Internet of Things’ with the consumer world, smart toasters and WiFi fridges; however, a large part of our life depends on networked embedded devices that have been around for decades. Think of smart meters, medical devices, and connected industrial controllers used for elevators, traffic lights, and factories. Adoption is driven by business rationale but the security exposure is often overlooked. Based on my experience, there is not a single IoT device that cannot be compromised or misused by a determined attacker,” said Stephen Ridley, CEO of Senrio.
