A new press release reports, “Symphion, Inc., a leading software and services company focused on affordably eliminating risk and cost while maximizing operational efficiency in information technology, today announced the official launch of the Symphion’s IoT Cyber Security as a Service™ solution. This new offering from Symphion is the only service available today to cost-effectively secure IoT devices, independent of make, model or type. Regulators are recognizing the increasing exposures from Internet of Things (IoT) devices and are requiring manufacturers to add features to address security.”
Jim LaRoe, Symphion’s Chief Executive Officer, noted, “New laws like California’s SB 327, which will take effect in January 2020, require connected devices to be secure… We’re just now seeing the beginning of these types of regulations requiring that security features must be added by manufacturers to protect their devices and customer networks. At Symphion, we recognized this need for printers, the most prevalent and mature IoT devices, and designed our Print Fleet Cyber Security as a Service™ solution using artificial intelligence to identify and maintain preventative cyber hardening using the built-in security features. To address the broader IoT market development and the anticipated introduction of security features, we’re introducing our newest service, IoT Cyber Security as a Service™.”
The release goes on, “Currently, networked printers form the largest number of IoT devices across most enterprises in the US today – with the estimated number being above 100 million deployed on networks. Of those, it is estimated that less than two percent are properly configured for security, creating the greatest threat to network security today. Industries like healthcare, energy and government are at significant risk due to increased regulations that have expanded fines for not properly securing IoT devices, including networked printers.”
