IoT Security Solutions
In order to provide the utmost value in our partnership, Corvalent takes security seriously. Keep reading to learn more about our security partners.
Our World-Class Security Partners
Protecting the data within your industrial infrastructure is vital – Corvalent works with the best of the best to provide a full-funnel solution for data protection. Our partners include IoT security companies Intrusion and Fortra (formerly Helpsystems), as well as risk and compliance assessment company SecurityGate.io.
Not sure if you require this level of protection? Get in touch with us today. Corvalent’s team is always happy to advise you on recommended needs and IoT cybersecurity solutions.
Intrusion uses more than signatures of known issues and malware to protect individual companies from threats – they employ highly unique and effective methods.
Their team consists of talented individuals who are previous members of various United States “three letter agencies”, and have years of hands-on experience protecting our nation’s most sensitive secrets.
They continue to be a trusted security partner of Corvalent.
Formerly known as Helpsystems, Fortra possesses one of the most advanced, privately owned Security Operations Centers (SOC) in the world, allowing them to provide a wealth of security tools for both software and hardware systems.
In addition to providing Active Threat Detection and Mitigation monitoring, they are our partner in Linux endpoint computer software for our CorEdge line of Edge Computers.
SeucrityGate.io covers governance, risk (assessment and management), compliance, and auditing, for Corvalent’s partnerships with large, corporate clients.
Frameworks and standards covered by SecurityGate.io include:
- NERC CIP
- Oil and Natural Gas Subsector Cybersecurity (ES-C2M2)
- Maritime Cyber Assessments
- Dozens of other frameworks
The Importance of Industrial IoT Security
More than ever, Industrial IoT (IIoT) security must be built into every aspect of your technology solutions. The prevention of hacking, implantation of viruses, ransomware, and many other threats have to be considered a key attribute of any enterprise software solution in the cloud, on-premises servers, edge computers, and every data link along the path.
How Corvalent’s IoT Security Solutions Help
Since wireless overtook wired global Internet traffic in 2015, IoT networks have fully transitioned into wireless function.
This makes security far more challenging, particularly due to the variety of emerging RF and wireless communications protocols and standards. Corvalent’s CorGrid (formerly CAT-APM) uses Transport Layer Security (TLS) and session tokens. CorEdge Edge Computers can be protected using some of the world’s most advanced endpoint security using the McAfee security engine, courtesy of our partners at Fortra. Additional offerings include Active Threat Monitoring and Active Threat Detection.
IoT devices must be authenticated by all legitimate users. Methods to achieve such authentication range from static passwords, to two-factor authentication, biometrics, and digital certificates. CorGrid uses logins with passwords, but two-factor and / or Single Sign-On can also be implemented.
In order to prevent unauthorized access to data and devices, encryption will be necessary. Due to the variety of IoT devices and hardware profiles, this can be difficult to ensure.
Corvalent views encryption as a vital part of a complete security management process – with the CorGrid Industrial IoT Solution, data at rest and in flight is encrypted using SHA-255.
Security Analytics & Threat Prediction
Aside from the need for security-related data to be controlled and monitored within a complete security system, it must also be leveraged to predict and prevent future threats. To do this, analytics must complement traditional approaches, which look for activities that fall outside of an established policy or parameters.
If desired, Corvalent’s CorGrid solution can be integrated with algorithms and machine learning or artificial intelligence applications that are able to access non-traditional cyberattack strategies.
Most hardware and software designers access devices via an application programming interface (API). Securing these interfaces requires the ability to authenticate and authorize devices that need to exchange data (and are preferably encrypted). Only authorized devices, developers, and applications should be capable of communication between secure devices.
Continuous updates and patches will be needed to deal with the constantly changing tactics of cyber attackers. This will require expertise in patches, essentially fixing gaps in critical software on the fly.
Corvalent’s team is able to step in and assist you with any updates, reconfigurations, integrations, and other patches that are necessary to provide your critical infrastructure with the utmost level of protection.
