Trend Micro looks at security for Internet of Vehicles and other IoT ecosystems
A new security solution that helps enterprises safeguard their connected devices and services against cloud, network and endpoint threats was introduced at the recently held Microsoft IoT Expo in Taipei.
Developed by Trend Micro Incorporated, in collaboration with Microsoft, the newly announced information security protection software development kit enhances security amidst rapid expansion of integration in the global IoT, and specifically the Internet of Vehicles (IoV).
Jerry Liao, chief architect of IoT security for Trend Micro, said: “Despite growing excitement about the possibilities of IoT, information security in the industry is still lagging, particularly for connected device endpoints - making them especially vulnerable to attacks. There is a huge need for improved IoV security, and this new kit demonstrates Trend Micro's dedication to protecting its customers, as well as our proactive - not reactive - approach to security.”
Trend Micro’s information security protection software development kit proactively detects threats and conduct risk assessment, as well as endpoint level protection that activate system security when devices are under attack. The kit automatically connects to the Trend Micro Smart Protection Network, using machine learning technology to monitor abnormal conditions when deployed. Moreover, the kit is capable of extensive support for various IoT platforms, providing protection in real-time.
A recent Trend Micro report shows that 50% of surveyed corporations, government agencies and related organisations said the frequency at which their connected devices are under attack is on the rise, yet only 10% feel confident in their ability to confront those attacks, and nearly 80% agreed that cyber threats are becoming increasingly accurate and sophisticated.
