HOW IT WORKS

info
1 INFORMATION GATHERING

At this stage we perform detailed reconnaissance of the IOT devices and perform testing in order to find any glitch present in its software, whether its operating system, firewall and anti-virus are outdated.

2 PLANNING AND ANALYSIS

Based on the information collected we devise a full scale “Red Team” approach to mimic real time attacks. To minimise the impact, we plan the attack on the IoT devices.

3 VULNERABILITY ASSESSMENT

In this stage, we run vulnerability scanners to look for possible vulnerabilities and common vulnerabilities related to the IOT devices.

4 PENETRATION TESTING

Here we run exploits on the network to evaluate the security of IoT devices. We provide detailed report on the vulnerabilities along with their impacts and recommendation techniques. We frame policies for device access, network security, physical security and password management. We also deploy solutions as well as patches while coordinating with the in-house team.

5 REPORTING

We generate concise and succinct reports of the vulnerabilities discovered in either the IoT devices along with discussion on the nature of vulnerability, its impact, threat level and recommendation to remove the vulnerability.

6 DISCUSSION

Our technical experts discuss the report, along with the bugs found and their impact scenario with the development team of the client. We also suggest best practices on how to implement resilience: device level security, rogue device detection, endpoint and perimeter security for various IoT devices.

ADVANTAGES

  • Proactive reporting of critical vulnerabilities affecting the security of IoT devices.
  • Prevent device level threats, network snooping and malware attacks.
  • Prevent unauthorised access to IoT devices, unaffordable downtimes and disruption of services due to malicious attacks.
  • Suggestions on best practices of endpoint security, firewall and operating system updates, access management and perimeter security.
