Internet of Things (IoT) devices can be highly vulnerable, as they are exposed to the internet and constantly sending data. A tiny unpatched IoT sensor exposes the business to as much risk as a large-scale server in the data center.
Industrial IoT (IIoT) devices, including within the automotive and manufacturing sectors, have become easy targets for cybercriminals, as many IIoT devices run gateway and node software based on Linux, an operating system favored by attackers.
Fortunately, there are a number of security measures, including live patching, that organizations can employ to keep their devices and their IoT data secure.
In this whitepaper, you’ll gain an understanding of the security implications of IoT devices, best practices for IoT security and compliance, and how organizations can live patch IoT devices without undergoing a system reboot.
TuxCare, a global leader in live patching as well as security patching for end-of-life applications, and critical software libraries, enables organizations to strengthen their IoT security approach by:
