Can We Lighten the Cybersecurity Load for Heavy Industries?

One of the biggest problems with the IT / OT convergence in critical infrastructure is that much of the legacy hardware cannot simply be patched to an acceptable compliance level. Recently, Sean Tufts, the practice director for Industrial Control Systems (ICS) and Internet of Things (IoT) security at Optiv, offered his perspectives on where the industry has been, where it is going, and some of the progress being made to secure critical infrastructure.

Adding trust to the IoT with Blockchain

Without trust there is nothing. So, while the IoT is changing many parts of the digital transformation landscape, real trust is often the missing component for businesses to fully embrace the technology. How can we be sure that the temperature gauge was working and calibrated? Was it really in the location it said it was and was the limit the actual limit?

Dynamic Network Segmentation: A Must Have in the Age of Zero Trust

The IT landscape is rapidly evolving to meet the demands of our digitally transforming world and a radically changed business environment that calls for always-on performance and agility at scale. As a result, client-server computing has given way to disruptive IT architectures that reshape business and ownership models. These include private and public cloud services, 'bring your own device' (BYOD), mobility and the Internet of Things (IoT).

5 Best Practices to Protect Your Business from IoT Security Risks

The rate that smart devices connected to the Internet of Things (IoT) was already brisk over the last few years, but the pace accelerated during the COVID-19 pandemic. Both the enterprise and the consumer IoT market boomed, despite economic uncertainty. As the World Economic Forum noted in a December 2020 report, "COVID-19 has radically transformed the role of IoT in just a few months." Security has been a concern for IoT devices all along.

Stopping IOT Attacks using NDR

Unmanaged endpoints like IoT devices represent a significant and growing risk surface. Network Detection and Response (NDR) solutions monitor network traffic to generate rich security evidence that enables asset inventory, vulnerability assessment and threat monitoring. In this presentation, experts from Corelight and Microsoft will walk you through how it works and how it can improve your security posture.

Corelight & Microsoft Defender for IoT: Through an XDR lens

What is the XDR paradox? It’s the hottest term in security but there is no consensus yet on the right definition. Why is that? Many organizations have deployed EDR and are benefiting from it, but also looking to the gaps that EDR can’t address such as unmanaged / compromised devices or network-centric TTPs. Likewise, many vendors of EDR/SIEM products have realized they have the same general workflow (analyze data, present an alert, triage it, etc).

Microsoft + Corelight partner to stop IoT attacks

When you hear the term “Internet of Things,” (IoT) do you picture home devices like lightbulbs, smart assistants, and wifi-connected refrigerators? Perhaps you think of enterprise devices like video conferencing systems, smart sensors, or security cameras? Or maybe traditional office equipment like VoIP phones, printers, and smart TVs come to mind. No matter what devices you imagine, IoT represents an ever-expanding attack surface.

Our Answers to the 7 Questions SRM Leaders Should Ask OT Security Providers

The diverse and complex nature of IIoT and OT security use cases can make the technology selection difficult, and unfortunately, copying IT security practices and technology will not result in a secure OT environment. To achieve lasting success with OT cybersecurity investments, managers must ask prescriptive questions during the technology procurement process. In this eBook, we discuss the seven questions recommended by Gartner for SRM leaders to ask during their OT security technology selection and how Forescout answers them.
