As an individual, household or business, your internet of things (IoT) refers to the various computerised devices connected to your internet network. These devices are ever-evolving; they collect and share data, reducing your workload and increasing your daily activities’ efficiency, flexibility and productivity.
Internet of things security is the dedicated practice of safeguarding your IoT devices and their corresponding data and workflows. It is a proactive security solution that protects your hub of internet-connected devices from threats, exploitation of inherent vulnerabilities and security breaches. It does this by monitoring, identifying and patching risks.
Unlike most sophisticated operating systems, IoT devices either do not have firmware securities in place or the firmware is rife with unpatched vulnerabilities. Without IoT security, your devices and workflow are at the mercy of the attacks targeted at these vulnerabilities.
IoT devices come with their default usernames and passwords, which are anything but secure. If these easily-decipherable passwords are not changed and the device is left open to remote access, it becomes easy prey for bulk exploitation. Also, some models of IoT devices share the same credentials that cannot be reset, giving threat actors more leverage to guess the proper credentials and gain access to your network.
IoT devices are vulnerable to on-path attacks. These attacks intercept communications between two or more parties that trust each other. For instance, a threat actor can easily hijack communications between an IoT security camera and its cloud server. This is because such devices do not have default encryption products embedded in their communication channels.

By frequently updating the IoT device administrator’s default login and password credentials, Microminder prevents credential-based attacks. We offer companies a password vault in which they can automatically safe-lock their updated credentials.
IoT devices must be updated whenever the manufacturer issues a software update or vulnerability patch. This is because the concept of software updates eliminates vulnerabilities embedded in previous versions that threat actors could exploit. Also, to ensure IoT software security, Microminder provides password protection and prevents IoT devices from initiating connections on their own.
From servers to networked devices and each other, IoT devices can make several types of connections. With each connection, there is an opportunity for exploitation. This is why authentication is necessary for each connected device. This way, inputs and requests from unauthorised devices are blocked.
While the IoT device manufacturer usually configures this type of authentication, Microminder offers authentication products that will suffice.
Encrypting the communication between IoT devices will protect the transmitted data and its integrity. Microminder uses protocols like HTTP, DNS extensions and SFTP to encrypt data transmissions over the internet. Microminder’s competitive advantage is that its encryption protocols integrate with its authentication products to prevent on-path attacks.
Due to the robust nature of IoT, IoT security needs to be comprehensive. Ideally, IoT security involves methods, strategies, techniques and tools that protect IoT devices like networked security cameras, smart watches, refrigerators, thermostats, personal computers, or their embedded information from compromise.
Microminder’s IoT security solution has three capabilities:
Our IoT security solutions come with authentication tools that learn and build risk profiles of each device, classifying them into their assigned groups. We achieve this with total network visibility.
Microminder’s IoT security solutions offer insights into each IoT device’s attack surface and risk profiles. It then categorises these devices into policy-driven groups based on these risk profiles.
Which will fortify your internet devices from threat actors. Most of our IoT security services are integrated with other products and intelligence systems for layered and more robust protection.
