Secure IoT/IIoT Devices with Unified Privilege, Password and Vulnerability Management
Reduce the risks of insecure IoT devices and achieve business goals by controlling user privileges and eliminating device vulnerabilities.
Reducing IoT Cybersecurity Risks
Approximately 56% of organizations report that the internet of things (IoT) has gone mainstream in enterprises.
However, unknown, or undermanaged, IoT devices continue to create significant security gaps that open up networks to security breaches, data loss, intellectual property theft, denial of service, and regulatory compliance issues.
With unsecured IoT increasingly being exploited, such with the devastating, broad-reaching botnet attacks (Mirai, etc.) it’s never been more important to proactively identify, properly onboard, and secure your organization’s IoT/IIoT devices. And, when it comes to industrial IoT (IIoT), the stakes are even higher.
But how can organizations increase IoT security with their devices to take advantage of new business opportunities, while leveraging the same solutions to address risks in the rest of their environments?
Comprehensive IoT Security
The BeyondTrust solution for securing IoT/IIoT devices discovers all devices in the environment, groups devices for consistent privilege management, and scans for security vulnerabilities and privilege-related risks. By unifying policy, management, reporting, and analytics across the environment, organizations can meet stringent security and compliance controls over IoT usage, while achieving enterprise goals.
With our integrated solutions for privilege management, password management, and vulnerability management for IoT/IIoT devices, you can:
- Provide an inventory of all IoT devices to ensure visibility
- Scan for vulnerabilities and misconfigurations on IoT devices
- Find and manage the use of all privileged accounts (administrator, shared, embedded, and role-based) to improve accountability over access
- Eliminate excessive privileges on administrator machines used to manage IoT systems to prevent an incident
- Enforce boundaries between systems to limit or eliminate lateral movement
Discovery & Inventory
Perform continuous discovery and inventory of IoT devices, ensuring that only properly configured and approved devices (no Shadow IT) are in your environment.
Provide continuous vulnerability assessment and remediation guidance of the infrastructure across IoT devices.
Perform continuous configuration and hardening baseline scanning across IoT devices. Ensure configurations are consistent and properly hardened across the entire estate against best practices from NIST, CIS and Microsoft.
Shared Account Management
Control and audit access to shared accounts and ensure that all audited activity is associated with a unique identity. Ensure that all passwords are properly managed and rotated across the IoT environment.
Hard-Coded Credential Management
Control scripts, files, code, embedded application credentials, and hard-coded passwords to close backdoors to IoT devices. This includes removing hard-coded passwords that may interact with IoT devices.
Appropriate Credentials Usage Enforcement
Eliminate administrator privileges on end-user machines, securely store privileged account credentials, require a simple workflow process for check-out, and monitor privileged sessions.
Utilize a secured jump server with multi-factor authentication, adaptive access authorization, and session monitoring for access that needs to cross trust zones.
Grant only required permissions to IoT devices. Monitor for commands that could indicate lateral movement and provide a secure audit trail for digital forensic purposes.
