Buyers’ Guide to IoT Security

The use of the Internet of Things (IoT) devices has skyrocketed in our businesses, factories, and hospitals. The Mirai, Hajime, and Persirai botnets demonstrated how this explosive growth has created a new attack surface, already exploited by cybercriminals.  Businesses must now address this new threat landscape to determine how to protect themselves.

BlueBorne – Technical White Paper

This research paper explores the areas in Bluetooth’s implementations in which the vulnerabilities were found, and details the vulnerabilities discovered by Armis Labs. It covers eight vulnerabilities that are a part of the attack vector so far.

Securing Unmanaged Devices in the Enterprise

The traditional security architecture is broken. It is not designed to address all the new unmanaged devices flooding the Enterprise. Wired and wireless devices that can’t host an agent or are using non-standard operating systems.

Read this white paper to learn how:

  • The traditional security model is corroding
  • IoT search engines expand the attack surface
  • Patching inconsistencies lead to risk
  • To modernize the security architecture for all devices

IoT Security for Healthcare

Read this white paper to learn:

  • How these attackers are targeting patient care devices
  • Why patient care devices are at risk
  • How to accurately inventory, classify, and monitor medical devices
  • How to protect against ransomware and other attacks on medical devices

Palo Alto Networks – Armis Joint Solution Brief

With Palo Alto Networks and Armis working together, businesses can broaden their security footprint past the perimeter all the way to the access layer to address the new connected devices across the enterprise.

Read this white paper to learn:

  • Automatically stop IoT threats at the NGFW
  • Dynamically enforce NGFW policy based on device behavior and device risk score
  • Isolate compromised devices and prevent data leakage on both the wired and wireless networks
  • Broaden the security footprint past the perimeter all the way to the access layer

Protecting the Enterprise from BlueBorne

Traditional security controls are blind to BlueBorne and similar airborne attacks. Armis introduces a new layer of security that enables enterprises to continuously monitor and automatically protect unmanaged and IoT devices from BlueBorne-like exploits.

Read this paper to learn:

  • How BlueBorne circumvents existing security tools
  • Why patching and air gapping falls short
  • How to protect your network from other IoT threats

BlueBorne on Android – Exploiting an RCE over the air

Elaborates upon Android Remote Code Execution vulnerabilities related to the BlueBorne attack vector.

BlueBorne on Linux – Exploiting Linux based IoT Devices

Elaborates upon the Linux RCE vulnerability (CVE-2017-1000251) and its exploitation. The exploitation of this vulnerability is presented on two IoT devices – a
Samsung Gear S3 Smartwatch, and the Amazon Echo personal assistant.

PCI Compliance in the IoT Age

The new connected devices bring the promise of improved efficiency, but they also increase the attack surface, and they increase the number of communication paths that must be monitored and controlled in order to prove compliance with the PCI DSS standards.

Read the “PCI Compliance in the IoT Age” to learn:

  • How new wireless devices are invisible to traditional PCI DSS security controls
  • How Armis helps you plug the visibility gap and maintain PCI DSS compliance

Armis Alignment to CIS Critical Security Controls
