SDN Strategies for IoT Security

By Ken Briodagh April 19, 2018

The potential for widely distributed IoT devices to streamline operations is vast, but so are the security implications. From branch sites and vehicles to M2M and IoT deployments in the wild, IoT is creating the biggest attack surfaces that IT teams have ever seen.

A new webinar from Cradlepoint and IoT Evolution, entitled SDN Strategies for IoT Security, will explore the issues inherent in that reality. The webinar will take place Tuesday, April 24 at 2 pm Eastern/11 am Pacific. Click here to get in on the conversation.

Mirai botnets, WannaCry, and other well-publicized incidents illustrate the breadth of today’s IoT threats, which are too prevalent and advanced to address with traditional security tools. Many organizations are recognizing the need for software-defined, policy-based security solutions that isolate IoT devices and protect organizations' most valuable data — regardless of the WAN source.

During the webinar, attendees will learn about:

  • IoT security challenges
  • Best practices for mitigating IoT security risks
  • How Software-Defined Perimeter technology is changing the way IoT networks are secured
  • How to create a perimeter-secured overlay network for IoT devices in about 5 minutes

Who should attend:

  • Network administrators who need IoT security options that can be deployed and managed from anywhere
  • CIOs interested in saving reducing costs, man-hours, and complexities surrounding IoT security
