Smart, connected devices are already an integral part of our lives, in business and at home. And, with the advent of 5G and Satellite-based networks this will scale multi-fold. However, 5G Networks and the Internet of Things are opening up previously closed systems to remote access & control. And, existing security solutions are unable to keep pace, scale up and address the security challenges facing the emerging 5G and IoT world. Critical infrastructure incl. the Colonial Pipeline have suffered ransomware attacks while computer hackers have separately gained access to energy and utility grids and even tried to poison a water system in Florida.
Block Armour is stepping up to address this solution with IoT Armour – a next-gen Zero Trust cybersecurity solution for connected devices, critical systems and integrated IoT networks. The solution is powered by Software Defined Perimeter (SDP) architecture and private Blockchain technology and was featured as one of the Top 25 innovations worldwide in cybersecurity. The solution harness digital signatures – not just IP address – to identify, authenticate and authorize devices, thus making it well suited for today’s distributed and hybrid enterprise IT ecosystems as well as smart city, Industry 4.0 and 5G security use cases. All communications is secured using 4096-bit RSA encryption.
