Webroot Secures the IoT by Protecting Critical Devices, Gateways and Systems

Toolkit Equips Connected IoT Systems with Real-time Threat Intelligence and Embedded Micro-agents to Provide Future-proof Protection

BROOMFIELD, CO – Sept. 1, 2015 Webroot, the market leader in intelligent cybersecurity for endpoints and collective threat intelligence, today announced the release of the Webroot® IoT Security Toolkit. The toolkit enables Internet of Things (IoT) and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) solution designers and system integrators to integrate cloud-based, real-time threat intelligence services and intelligent cybersecurity device agents to protect this next generation of critical systems against modern malware, zero-day exploits and other external threats and internal vulnerabilities.

As organizations increasingly move toward IoT, where IT systems converge with critical operational systems, the nature and severity of attacks is increasing dramatically. Regardless of where they fall within the IoT ecosystem, devices and systems that have long-intended service lives need a proactive defense that leverages up-to-the-second threat intelligence and is future-proof against tomorrow’s cyberattacks. The Webroot IoT Security Toolkit provides continuously updated threat intelligence that leverages industry-leading Webroot BrightCloud® Threat Intelligence. The BrightCloud platform actively scans the entire internet multiple times a day to detect and classify all types of online threats. The IoT toolkit is available to device manufacturers, systems integrators and Webroot technology partners who strive to offer operational safety and security to their customers. Additionally, any class of next-generation device, gateway, server, or network element can be monitored and protected.

“As the world begins to unlock the potential of IoT devices and platforms, cybercriminals are deploying more advanced attacks to hijack critical applications inside edge devices,” said John Sirianni, VP of IoT Strategic Partnerships at Webroot. “Because the Webroot IoT Security Toolkit leverages real-time threat intelligence to protect deployed systems against cyberattacks, solution designers and integrators can meet the mandatory requirements for security and safety systems by ensuring that critical devices and systems operate as expected. Together with our strategic partners, we are playing a critical role in developing and deploying devices and systems that are defended against the zero-day and advanced persistent threats of today and tomorrow.”

 The Webroot IoT Security Toolkit includes:

  • Device Agents: High performance, low system impact, small device footprint software agents detect new and altered files or anomalous conditions. Agents collect data about files and other system level anomalous events and communicate to the Webroot BrightCloud® Threat Intelligence Platform.
  • Threat Intelligence Services: Webroot BrightCloud Threat Intelligence Services can be integrated into IoT gateways and platforms to block malicious inbound attacks and prevent data exfiltration. Available through a single API/SDK, these services include up-to-the-second intelligence.
  • Secure Web Gateway: This cloud-based service inspects and filters all incoming and outgoing traffic between devices and their control system over the internet, intercepting malware before it reaches your network or endpoint devices.

To address the critical issues of securing the next generation of critical industrial-connected devices, Webroot has appointed John Sirianni as vice president of IoT strategic partnerships. With more than 30 years of experience leading advanced technology innovation and strategic business development initiatives for global high-tech firms, Sirianni will manage all aspects of IoT strategy and ecosystem development at Webroot. His industry experience includes Aerospace and Industrial Control Systems, Real-time Embedded Systems, IT & Telecom Consulting, Big Data Platforms, M2M Systems, Automotive Infotainment Systems, RF Comms, Mobile Device Intelligence and Machine Learning Systems. 

The Webroot IoT Security Toolkit is now available. For additional solution information, visit: www.webroot-iot.com

CVE-2020-25747
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-25
The Telnet service of Rubetek RV-3406, RV-3409, and RV-3411 cameras (firmware versions v342, v339) can allow a remote attacker to gain access to RTSP and ONFIV services without authentication. Thus, the attacker can watch live streams from the camera, rotate the camera, change some settings (brightn...
CVE-2020-25748
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-25
A Cleartext Transmission issue was discovered on Rubetek RV-3406, RV-3409, and RV-3411 cameras (firmware versions v342, v339). Someone in the middle can intercept and modify the video data from the camera, which is transmitted in an unencrypted form. One can also modify responses from NTP and RTSP s...
CVE-2020-25749
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-25
The Telnet service of Rubetek cameras RV-3406, RV-3409, and RV-3411 cameras (firmware versions v342, v339) could allow an remote attacker to take full control of the device with a high-privileged account. The vulnerability exists because a system account has a default and static password. The Telnet...
