IoT cybersecurity showcased at RSA 2017

February 13, 2017 //By Jean-Pierre Joosting
At the RSA Conference 2017 in San Francisco, Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity (München, Germany) is showing its embedded protocol and application classification solutions – promoting a shift from a traditional, reactive blacklisting of known signatures to a highly pro-active whitelisting approach.

According to a GlobalData survey, many enterprises abstain from using IoT because of security concerns. The Internet of Things requires both a highly scalable and secure network infrastructure.

Without adequate security, IoT will create new security risks to deployed workflows that nobody is willing to accept. Thus, proactive security architectures are becoming a central enabler of IoT in general.

Embedded multi-layer deep packet inspection (DPI) is an important cornerstone in assuring connectivity and security across networks, devices and applications in this new world. High performing DPI with a low memory footprint enables security within networks from the start.

By embedding protocol and application classification into core network infrastructure components such as firewalls, gateways and routers, DPI allows network equipment not only to detect applications within network traffic but also to semantically understand communication protocols in order to detect behavioral anomalies and hacking attempts. Furthermore, it can deliver realtime insights for both, physical and virtualized (including SDN driven) networks.

At the RSA Conference 2017, Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity will exhibit its network analytics solutions, including the DPI-based software library R&S®PACE 2. Deploying R&S®PACE 2 across the network ensures a more secure, flexible future network that enterprises can rely on.

Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity will also present its latest proactive security products for web application security and vulnerability management as well as new versions of its software for secure browsing and secure app execution, Browser in the Box. Tthe company will also show its exploit-aware secure mobile platform, BizzTrust. Additionally, a new firewall portfolio will be shown, including the Extended and Specialized Line that are empowered by the DPI engine R&S PACE 2.
