Blog: Navigating New Security Regulations Amidst the Fragmented IoT Landscape

The global efforts to enhance IoT security are gaining momentum, with the recent groundbreaking regulation mandating minimum security standards for UK manufacturers.

This significant leap forward addresses critical vulnerabilities, but challenges remain. Consumers often neglect software updates for their gadgets, leaving their entire network vulnerable. Additionally, devices bought online from abroad might not meet these standards.

Do these “security labels” truly provide adequate protection in the ever-evolving IoT landscape?

News: The Israeli Startup Keeping Our Everyday Gadgets Safe From Cyber Attacks

In today’s interconnected world, our homes and workplaces are filled with an array of smart devices, from security cameras and doorbells to TVs and thermostats. But along with this increased connectivity comes a greater vulnerability to cyber threats.

That’s why our visionary Co-Founder and CEO, Sivan Rauscher, had the idea of a software solution that runs as a service on top of the router, seamlessly protecting all connected devices with zero touch! Fast forward six years, SAM now secures over half a billion connected devices and 7 million networks worldwide. Click below for the full interview!

News: Unprecedented Wave of Attacks on D-Link Routers and NAS Devices

D-Link’s aging NAS devices and home routers are under threat, leaving users’ sensitive data vulnerable. Over 92,000 NAS units are at risk, with D-Link advising users to replace the devices due to the lack of available patches. Additionally, home routers have become targets for the “Goldoon” botnet, primarily due to a decade of unapplied patches.

Network service providers can play a critical role in defending against these threats. By implementing platform-agnostic, automated protection at the gateway level, they can secure these devices and provide real-time defense, ensuring the safety of all connected devices.

Read on for detailed strategies on proactive protection and peace of mind for your customers. 

News: Critical Flaw in 3 Million 3D Printers – Small Businesses at Risk

A critical vulnerability was recently discovered in 3 million Anycubic 3D printers, posing significant risks to small businesses. Attackers exploited this flaw to plant warnings within printing messages, highlighting the potential for full control over the printer and threatening entire network security. 

Printers, often overlooked in cybersecurity, are a common weak point in small business networks. Just one attack could significantly harm their operations. Network service providers can provide cybersecurity protection at the CPE level, acting as an automated CISO for their subscribers, ensuring robust protection and peace of mind.
