IoT Security


What makes Internet of Things so susceptible to bugs

Threat landscape has changed because of IOT. The following features of IOT make it very hackable

Improper configuration of routers that interact with the IoT devices.

Consumption of IoT technology by high net-worth and low tech enabled consumers .

High degree of privacy concerns.

Improper usage of communication between Hubs and Slaves.

Lack of standards and guidelines in the manufacturing of IoT devices.

Insecure Cloud Communication and Storage.

Extreme dependencies on open source platforms allow attackers to stay ahead of the curve.

Lack of ongoing technical support for security from the IoT vendors and manufacturing vendors.

Lack of thorough perimeter security assessments before the deployment of IoT devices.

Heavy hardware tweaking by developers and lack of security validation for hardware devices.

Why is IoT Security important?

As the number of IoT devices that are connected in the realm of cyber space exceeds the metric of global population in 2017, consumers in IoT are globally spread across different verticals.

  • Health Care
  • Smart Cities
  • Infrastructure
  • Retail
  • Hospitality
  • Connected Homes

Organizations & consumers are highly susceptible to IoT attacks which may pose potential threats to their privacy and businesses.

This tremendous increase in the consumption of IoT products and services has created a phenomenal stir in securing the Internet of Things.


Entersoft IoT Security Methodology

  • Home grown methodology designed by an elite group of White Hats with OSCP certifications and extensive experience in auditing IoT products.
  • Our White Hats’, with their hands-on experience, conduct IoT tests through real devices. Embedded level testing on the IoT devices is performed and evaluated.
  • Existing vulnerability assessment and penetration testing tools do not work with IoT. Entersoft’s expertise in handling VAPTs in IoT helps achieve maximum results by a combination of manual and automated assessments.
  • We design our customized test cases and model threats to assess IoT devices which are unique in functionalities.
  • Separate assessment methodologies for Manufacturers and Solution providers in IoT.
  • “Security by Design” expertise.
  • R&D on real-time devices and capability to execute latest IoT attacks.
  • Comprehensive reports with all use cases and test scenarios.

The following tests are performed on IoT products to make sure they are secure.
