CES 2017: first enterprise-grade complete solution for IoT data security unveiled
Securing the IoT Fortress Cyber Security has launched Fortress UTM, a residential unified threat management (UTM) appliance, at CES 2017. Securing both computers and internet of things (IoT) systems, it s the first solution of its type. With the IoT market exploding and cyber security professionals scrambling to keep up, IoT developers have been accused of complacency over the threat posed by hackers.
Fortress UTM, which provides intrusion detection and prevention, firewall and anti-virus for all Wi-Fi and IoT/Ethernet attached systems, seeks to combat the growing threat of data theft, ransomware, distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks and the commandeering of corporate IT resource to distribute stolen content or host and distribute sexually explicit material. Until now, there has been no enterprise-grade complete solution for home worker IT/IoT data security, says Peter Kassabov, chairman of Fortress Cyber Security. Alternatives are single-function solutions that protect the PC, but don t deliver comprehensive services to every attached device. The modern cybercriminal is both sophisticated and patient Fortress UTM provides consumers with an easy-to-use device with monitoring, detection and defense for the threats they never saw coming. Features: Attacker behavior detection Device vulnerability assessments CyberGuard 24/7, a security operations centre providing incident response and mitigation services Real-time verification of every connection in the home and capture and detonation of any connection brought into home from an outside network 7 touch screen displays network status by colour (green, yellow and red) Users prioritise connectivity for three devices, device activity and filtering and what devices are connected to the appliance. Powered by ARM processor from NXP Semiconductor and features dual band 3/3 802.11ac Wi-Fi, full router capabilities and 4 Gigabit-Ethernet ports Fortress will be pitched as a cyber security as a service solution through collaborations with home security providers and luxury home builders.
