Cyberattack Protection for IoT DevicesEngineering360 News Desk | July 30, 2015
Icon Labs has released a security management software suite intended to protect Internet of Things (IoT) and embedded devices against cyberattack.
Called the Floodgate Security Manager (FSM), the software can be operated either as an on-premise or as a cloud-based security manager.
According to Icon Labs, FSM monitors device status, security policy management, command audit logging and security event logging and reporting for devices running Icon Labs’ Floodgate Agent or other lightweight IoT management protocols.
The system also offers reporting and auditing capabilities to help achieve EDSA Certification, ISA/IEC 62443 Compliance and/or compliance with the NIST Cybersecurity framework.
“The current approach to security management for IoT devices is to repurpose legacy security management systems,” says Alan Grau, president and co-founder of Icon Labs. “While this solution works for some IoT gateways and other large IoT devices, it does not scale to the smallest IoT devices, especially small battery powered edge devices and sensor solutions.”
