Kaspersky expands Cyber-Immune offerings for IoT protection with new Kaspersky IoT Secure Gateway 1000

Kaspersky's new IoT Secure Gateway

From January to September 2022, Kaspersky Telemetry will deploy 67,000 IoT devices in the Middle East, Turkey and Africa An IoT device was infected and was scheduled for March 11th. 2022 Caused by millions of attacks October, 2022.

Kaspersky IoT Secure Gateway 1000 is the latest cyber-immune product for companies looking to digitally transform, helping them extract business value from new streams of industrial data. Gateways connect IoT devices and controllers to business applications and cloud platforms. Secure Kaspersky OS at the core of the gateway and protection against network attacks then ensure the security of these interactions and the data transmitted through them. Customers running smart city systems such as utilities, street lighting and street infrastructure, or using them in manufacturing or power generation and distribution projects, have secure IoT systems and visibility across all connected devices at their fingertips. can be put in The solution will be presented as a pilot project at his GITEX Global in Dubai, UnitedArabEmirates. IoT continues to permeate organizations: According to Gartner, 61% of organizations already have a high level of IoT maturity. From January 2022 to September 2022, he infected 67,000 IoTs in the Middle East, Turkey and Africa, according to Kaspersky telemetry. These devices were involved in 11 million attacks. The third quarter of 2022 saw an increase in attacks from this region. From July to September, he increased the number of attacks sevenfold (659%).

Given the increase in outbound attacks, the increase could be explained by cybercriminals deploying new bulletproof hosts to increase the size of their botnets. Presumably, this originated in Turkey, which has the largest share of outbound attacks in the region. Given the diversity of  IoT devices and the cybersecurity risks associated with them, it is clear that they need to be protected. Especially when it comes to smart cities and critical infrastructure. Traditional measures are not enough to protect IoT. Therefore, implementing a dedicated security solution is essential.

Reliable protection against network attacks and gateway threats

The new Kaspersky IoT Secure Gateway 1000 is a hardware appliance running Kaspersky OS and firmware based on Advantech UTX-3117 device. A secure design approach and built-in protections ensure security for the entire IoT system at the gateway level.

Provides industry protection through firewalls against network attacks and DDoS or man-in-the-middle attacks using the default-deny principle. This ensures that only pre-approved network interactions are allowed through the gateway. Additionally, the intrusion detection and prevention module (IDS/IPS) detects and blocks malicious activity. 
The Gateway is resistant to most attacks thanks to Kaspersky OS forming the core. This operating system features a microkernel that minimizes the risk of vulnerabilities and reduces the attack surface with just a few thousand lines of code. Minimal number of trusted components in the operating system, separation of security domains, inter-process communication scanning, and multiple independent security levels (MILS) architecture ensure that most types of attacks do not impact gateway functionality will do so. Its security goals were defined from the beginning, Kaspersky IoT Secure Gateway 1000 is inherently secure.

In addition, secure boot and update technology ensures the authenticity and integrity of gateway firmware and updates. Secure Boot blocks firmware from loading if the firmware is corrupted or tampered with. Secure Updates ensures that only correct updates from trusted sources are uploaded to your device.

Useful tools for IoT device visibility and security management

Kaspersky IoT Secure Gateway 1000 helps network administrators maintain transparency and control over their networks. View all devices connected to your network and discover and classify new devices within a minute of connecting. This interface provides IT or OT teams with the necessary details about the device, such as type, vendor, and operating system.

The product is managed through Kaspersky Security Center where all security events can be viewed. The gateway supports Syslog and MQTT protocols that can send all security events to external systems such as SIEMs and cloud platforms such as Microsoft Azure, Siemens MindSphere, and AWS. Kaspersky Security Center also facilitates integrated management of Kaspersky enterprise products such as endpoint and cloud protection. Customers can fully secure her IoT suite from the gateway to the cloud and manage it from a single management console.

“With this new gateway, Kaspersky is expanding its portfolio for securing IoT infrastructure. Launched Secure Gateway 100. The next-generation gateway offers more IoT security and management capabilities, which are critical for industries and operations with increasing security requirements such as: B. Smart cities, transportation networks, video surveillance, and critical infrastructure. Andrey Suvorov, head of Kaspersky’s Kaspersky OS business unit, commented:

For more information on his newly announced Kaspersky IoT Secure Gateway 1000, visit his Kaspersky booth at GITEX, Hall 1, #H1-C1, Dubai World Trade Centre, October 10-14. please.

Kaspersky IoT Secure Gateway 1000 will be available as a pilot project in the Middle East. In individual cases, the Kaspersky Lab team will consider the possibility of enabling test implementation for interested customers. To make a request, send an email to the Kaspersky team by email.
