Understanding My Operational System Vulnerabilities
How Do You Know Which Vendor’s Sensors, Controllers and IoT Devices are Vulnerable?
Today’s connected and intelligent buildings contain thousands of devices from a variety of vendors. These include everything from thermostats to cameras to light sensors that provide data to HVAC, energy management systems, lighting control systems, video surveillance systems, access control systems, elevator control systems and more.
Unfortunately, most of those controllers, sensors and IoT assets aren’t designed for the level of security now required to keep building occupants, data and systems safe. They are insecure by design – lacking authentication, encryption, and other security standards that typically apply to IT applications and systems.
Which leaves you wondering – which devices on your networks are vulnerable and in need of additional protection? And, which ones require firmware updates or other actions to close the door on cyber risks?
Automated Vulnerability Assessment Identifies At-risk Assets
- Are devices from Vendor X vulnerable?
- How many assets on our network are still running Windows XP?
- Do I need to update certain devices because their firmware is vulnerable?
