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.

Unmanaged Internet of Things (IoT), Internet of Medical Things (IoMT), and operational technology (OT) devices make up more than 50% of the devices on hospital networks.1 With Omdia estimating there were more than 250 million medical devices introduced to the market globally in 2020,2 an expected additional 500 million in 2025, and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approving 153 new healthcare device types between 2018 and 2020,3 we are at the tip of the iceberg when it comes to device utilization in the healthcare market.
Unmanaged Internet of Things (IoT), Internet of Medical Things (IoMT), and operational technology (OT) devices make up more than 30% of the devices on enterprise networks.1 Organizations require these devices to enable their business, yet they cannot trust them. IoT devices pose immense cybersecurity risks as they are largely unregulated. In fact, 57% of these devices, which often ship with their own vulnerabilities, are susceptible to medium- or highseverity attacks2—especially concerning when they are network-connected with unfettered access. Security teams, rarely involved in purchasing, find it extremely challenging to secure these devices due to their incredibly diverse builds, long lifecycles, and lack of coverage from traditional security controls.
