- layer 2-7 visibility, Defender for IoT allows users to easily segment groups of IoT devices into multiple, isolated secure zones, reducing the network attack surface. Users can also centrally monitor and track device usage, location, and roaming, helping customers mitigate the risk of an attacker gaining access to more sensitive areas of the network.
- Deployable on any network infrastructure: Defender for IoT works with any vendor's IP network, providing in-line protection of IoT devices and segmentation through IPSec tunnels – without network changes. Additionally, Defender for IoT integrates with Extreme Fabric Connect, giving customers the ability to leverage network automation capabilities and dynamic auto-attach functionality to streamline edge security efforts.
"When plugged into our Smart OmniEdge visibility and analytics applications," says Leibovitz, "users can easily control IoT device communication, ensure devices can only communicate with the appropriate resources, and then leverage analytics to prove and measure the outcome. We are the only vendor that can provide this level of granular visibility and control for wired and wireless IoT devices at the point of ingress."
An optional ExtremeMobility AP3912 Wall Jack offers the same integrated defense as the Defender Adapter for both wired and wireless devices, but with the ability to support multiple devices in a single room.
