WISE-PaaS/Security Centralizes IoT Device Security Management
October 20, 2016, Taipei–In the IoT era, more and more devices are being connected and dataand device security is becoming an ever more significant issue. Advantech, a global leader in embedded computing and IoT systems, has just launched WISE-PaaS/Security, a centralized IoT security management solution, with tailored security solutions to fulfill every vertical application and scenario. This IoT security solution deploys security policies to protect devices on Azure, as well as providing three main function modules – Application Controls, Change Controls, and Endpoint Security – to protect IoT devices and data against zero-day attacks, to monitor and track system changes, and to guard whole systems through Global Threat Intelligence.
Centralized Security Console Deploys Protection Policies and Guards Systems
WISE-PaaS/Security, empowered by Intel® Security, by default provides a centralized management console, the ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO), which can be installed either on standalone servers or in the Cloud. ePO, with its scalable management architecture, can manage hundreds of thousands of nodes and deploys protection applications or policies to corresponding clients. The centralization security solution, as a remote security manager platform, is always up-to-date and responds fast to security incidents and threats. Users can customize the console dashboard to see detailed monitor information and can automatically receive analytical reports.
Robust Protection through Whitelisting
WISE-PaaS/Security provides a robust but simple-to-configure solution – Application Control – that helps users manage applications or software in a static user environment. If the environment is closed and rarely changed, it can be protected by limiting application execution against zero-day-attack, that is, only authorized applications or software are allowed to run. New applications can be added at any time through an authorization process. Furthermore, WISE-PaaS/Security offers access rights management; and Change Control, to monitor changes and prevent unauthorized alterations to the file system, the registry, and user accounts. Change records track which files were modified, how they were modified, and by whom. Whitelist protection schemes are a good fit for closed network systems, and are easily maintained.
Scalable, Real-time Protection through Blacklisting
For systems with more open exposure, and in order to adapt to various kinds of applications in IoT systems, WISE-PaaS/Security offers Endpoint Security. Based on blacklisting, Endpoint Security with McAfee Threat Intelligence works to protect IoT systems. Endpoint Security scans every incoming file at the point of entry before it has access to the system. Working in conjunction with these modules–threat prevention, firewall, and web control–Endpoint Point Security gives administrators great management flexibility; they can pick the protection modules theywant for their particular system type and environment. Endpoint Security also performs full yet quick system scans with reliable efficiency, as well as zero-impact user scans.
