Mirai, Satori, BrickerBot and IoT_reaper – what do these names have in common? These are botnets, still very active on the internet, targeting home routers and devices connected to those routers. These botnets are not about to go away anytime soon. Quite the contrary - they are going to get more sophisticated and effective at inflicting damage on the Internet at massive scale. For IoT device vendors, security and privacy has always been an afterthought and consequently, consumers are being exposed to constant threats.
IoT security is a nascent market today but is poised for massive growth as IoT devices proliferate in homes and business alike. Securing these devices is a daunting challenge but a massive opportunity. We are at ground zero of this. “IoT Defense” is not just our name, we live and breathe this stuff every day.
