IoT Infrastructure Security

The IoT concept encompasses an enormous number of devices, technologies, software and data transmission protocols. IoT systems can make the world more comfortable, help save resources and effectively manage entire digital infrastructures. This complex environment needs a special approach to cybersecurity.

Kaspersky IoT Infrastructure Security is a comprehensive solution for protecting and monitoring IoT infrastructure at all levels: from smart devices and gateways to data transmission channels and cloud platforms.

Its main component is Kaspersky IoT Secure Gateway, which provides security for systems at the gateway level. Monitoring and management are provided through Kaspersky Security Center.

IoT infrastructure security
Protection at all levels, from smart devices to data transmission channels and cloud platforms
Centralized monitoring
Convenient monitoring and configuration of all IoT systems through one center
The solution is suitable for IoT systems in any industry with high cybersecurity requirements
Integration with clouds
Support for any private or public cloud (MS Azure, Amazon AWS, IBM Bluemix, etc.)
Threat protection

The main source of threats is the internet of things itself. This is due to its infrastructural and technological complexity coupled with its rapid development. Here are just a few of the potential risks:

Potential risks
Risks to public devices
If there are devices on the IoT network with public addresses or access to "the outside", they can become targets for network attacks
Connected device vulnerability
All IoT devices connected to the network are also at risk. Hacking can lead to data leaks or spoofing, or allow attackers to change the software configuration
Threats of unauthorized connections
New unauthorized connections to the system can disrupt its structural integrity and prevent it from operating correctly
Cloud storage hacking
By gaining access to the cloud platform, attackers can compromise the data stored on it and alter configurations, putting the entire infrastructure at risk
