IoT Security is an on-demand cloud subscription service designed to discover and protect the growing number of connected “things” on your network. Unlike IT devices such as laptop computers that perform a wide variety of tasks, IoT devices tend to be purpose-built with a narrowly defined set of functions. As a result, IoT devices generate unique, identifiable patterns of network behavior. Using machine learning and AI, IoT Security recognizes these behaviors and identifies every device on the network, creating a rich, context-aware inventory that’s dynamically maintained and always up to date.
After it identifies a device and establishes a baseline of its normal network activities, it continues monitoring its network activity so it can detect any unusual behavior indicative of an attack or breach. If it detects such behavior, IoT Security notifies administrators through security alerts in the IoT Security portal and, depending on each administrator’s notification settings, through email and SMS notifications.
