Ward off IoT attackers with deception

Attivo Networks has integrated its ThreatDefend platform based on deception technology into the Azure Security Center.

This should improve the detection rate and response time when attacking the Azure IoT Edge. Since IoT technology on the network edge (Intelligent Edge) is a common target for attackers, the service is intended to mitigate risks by using ThreatDefend for threat detection. According to Attivo, the integration of both platforms offers companies a reliable way to quickly and securely identify attackers in the network, mislead them and react to them.

Azure IoT Edge is a fully managed service based on the Azure IoT Hub. It is used to execute cloud workloads via standard containers on IoT edge devices. The migration of certain workloads to the fringes of the network aims to ensure that IoT devices spend less time communicating with the cloud. Because edge devices can react faster to local changes and function reliably even over long periods without an internet connection.

In Attivo’s solution, IoT modules act as bait so that threats can be identified and warded off at an early stage. Security teams can install ThreatDirect on IoT edge devices and lay out these baits directly from the IoT hub console, according to the manufacturer. The integration of deception maneuvers across the cloud, IoT devices or industrial and medical networks is intended to improve the protection of the infrastructure. The solution is available in the Azure Marketplace.
