Internet of Things is in a dire need of top-notch security as hackers around the world are targeting connected systems and devices. The Equifax credit cards hack last week which resulted in a personal data leak of over 143 million Americans is a glaring example of how important it is for Internet of Things and tech companies in general to ensure data protection and security. ZingBox is a California-based IoT company which recently raised over $22 million in Series B funding led by Dell Technologies Capital and Tri Ventures. Unlike pattern-based data protection offered by most of the Internet of Things security companies, ZingBox uses a personality-based approach to detect device behaviors and suspicious activities. ZingBox is based on “self-learning” which keeps checking the connected systems for questionable activities.
ZingBox IoT platform “Guardian” keeps track of all the connected devices individually and at a collective level. You don’t need to install IoT security software on all end points using this platform. Guardian platform is based on active management and racking of events. ZingBox also uses AI and deep learning to detect cyber-attacks. The tracking is seamless. The system keeps generating alerts but the normal working isn’t halted.
ZingBox creates a complete profile of every device and end node. The Guardian platform learns with time the dynamics and working of every end node. The self-learning feature enables the platform to detect irregular patterns in behaviors of end nodes.
Different policies could be implemented in ZingBox. The systems compares all the events based on these policies. For example, if you implement a policy to keep a check on the requests on a security camera, and a DDoS attack tries to overload the camera, ZingBox IoT security will shut down the camera and generate an alert.
ZingBox Internet of Things security is one of the best platforms for small and large businesses, Cloud security and completely automated platforms which have several nodes or parts. ZingBox understands the synergy-based systems ensures the security of the systems.
