Singapore, Singapore, Jan 18, 2022 – CYFIRMA, the industry’s leading external threat landscape management platform company, and Device Authority, the global leader in IoT device identity lifecycle management, today announced the technology integration to bring predictive, proactive and automated management of device security throughout an enterprise’s entire IT and OT stack.
With this integration, CYFIRMA’s rich, real-time threat data coupled with Device Authority’s KeyScaler platform provides the intelligence to automatically detect and remediate threats to edge networks, devices and applications. The combined offering gives enterprises end-to-end visibility of organisation-wide threats, risks and vulnerabilities, all from an outside-in perspective. The integration allows security leaders to manage the entire lifecycle from threat detection, investigation, triage to prioritization and remediation across both IT and OT systems.
CYFIRMA’s threat intelligence provides contextual insights showing the linkages between the threat actor, their motive, the type of campaign, and attack method so that remedial actions are targeted and precise. It empowers the security team with visibility to the organization’s external digital footprint and help them understand how their vulnerabilities can be exploited by cybercriminals. Working in tandem with Device Authority’s orchestration capabilities, CYFIRMA’s intelligence guides incident responders and threat hunters on actions they can take including quarantining a device, deploying a patch, or updating software.
“With billions of IoT devices expected to be deployed in the coming years, legacy solutions that lack continuous security monitoring for threats coming from the outside are putting cloud-first and hybrid organisations at risk. Intelligence from CYFIRMA’s platform gives security teams the view from the hacker’s lens, allowing them to understand how and why they become attractive targets for cyber adversaries. Using that intelligence to guide remediation, enterprises can close security gaps at scale, and fend off attacks,” said Kumar Ritesh, Founder and CEO for CYFIRMA. “At CYFIRMA, we continue to deliver breakthrough solutions with our customers’ needs in mind, bringing together innovations from our ecosystem of partners in easy-to-consume threat intelligence that are backed by our deep expertise. The partnership with Device Authority is a pivotal step in this direction.”
Darron Antill, CEO of Device Authority added, “CYFIRMA’s advanced threat intelligence alongside KeyScaler’s automated device identity management provides organisations with the ability to mitigate risk and achieve device, data and operational trust at IoT scale. Increasing global regulation to provide additional security to the IoT supply chain also makes this capability for continual assessment of vulnerabilities and the ability to take timely action at scale an important component for security requirements – we are delighted to be in a position to offer this with CYFIRMA.”
