Cybereason, creators of the leading cybersecurity AI Hunting Platform, today unveiled its strategic plan to partner with Arm in securing billions of Internet of Things (IoT) devices across sectors, including the utility and energy, transportation and logistics, and connected buildings industries. With SoftBank’s backing, the companies are delivering compelling solutions and leading the charge in providing device-to-data security for IoT. The companies plan to protect one trillion connected devices by 2035.
With the explosion of interconnected devices comes immense complexity and an expanding attack surface. As connected devices proliferate, the potential harm that a cyber attack can cause increases exponentially.
Cybereason is layering protection, detection, and response into the Arm® Pelion™ IoT Platform, which delivers end-to-end IoT connectivity and device and data management that enables organizations to unlock value from their IoT devices and data. Cybereason will provide AI Threat Hunting and advanced behavioral analytics, in real-time, on IoT devices managed by the Arm Pelion IoT Platform at scale potentially with billions of devices.
“The exponential growth and complexity of IoT devices has opened an entirely new attack surface for adversaries,” said Dipesh Patel, President, IoT Services Group, Arm. “Through our partnership with Cybereason and the Pelion Device Management service, our customers will have essential visibility into the communication patterns, behaviors and activities of IoT-connected devices, enabling them to stop malicious activity at its inception.”
“Today, security is critical for IoT, and Cybereason is thrilled to be working closely with Arm to add visibility and attack response capabilities to the Pelion IoT Platform. Our goal is to secure the connected world. Working with Arm accelerates our ability to transform our vision into reality and protect it all. In a world where every device is hackable, you need a layered approach to security: perimeter protection from all readily identifiable threats and deep detection and remediation of the most advanced anomalous activities with AI Hunting,” said Lior Div, co-founder and CEO, Cybereason.
Cybereason IoT Demo at TechCon
At TechCon, Arm and Cybereason will demo an attack simulation involving a smart meter powering a home with lights, TVs, a home security system and interconnected devices. In the simulation, hackers will use the home’s smart meter as a bridge to attack other devices and ultimately shut down the home’s power and the city’s power grid.
