Palo Alto Networks significantly expanded its IoT Security product capabilities around risk assessment, out-of-the-box reports, deployability, and third-party native integrations.

  1. Improved medical IoT device risk assessment with support for MDS² 2019 forms in addition to previously supported 2004, 2008, and 2013 versions. MDS² form ingestion helps with deeper risk analysis and anomaly detection with visibility into ePHI and unencrypted communication, to name a few.
  2. Five new out-of-the-box reports that include Device Summary, Connectivity, New Device, Filtered Inventory, and IoMT Device Utilization for easy consumption and analysis.
  3. Easy IoT protection and deployment option with Prisma® Access for remote sites without having to deploy on-premises firewall sensors. Prisma Access can integrate with IoT Security through a purchased add-on.
  4. Three new third-party integrations with Cisco DNA Center, Cisco Prime, and Nuvolo, and expanded current Cisco ISE integration

Cybersecurity researchers have identified NAME:WRECK as a set of nine DNS-related vulnerabilities that affect the TCP/IP stacks in four operating systems often used in IoT devices: FreeBSD, IPNet, NetX, and Nucleus NET. Attackers can exploit these vulnerabilities to perform denial-of-service attacks, DNS cache poisoning, and remote code execution.
