Ericsson has brought up a new IoT security offering that will help enhance enterprise-level security, named TMM (Threat Monitoring and Mitigation). As per Ericsson’s research, there will be around 6 billion cellular devices embedded with IoT by the end of the year 2026. And with so many IoT devices out in the play, their security will be a prime factor of consideration for the deployment of them all.
The new service by Ericsson is designed to offer connectivity extension with the aspects of security for IoT embedded cellular devices. Along with that, the Ericsson solution is meant for helping the enterprise detect & respond to all of the rising security threats in crucial environments around the enterprise or industry.
As per the reports stated by SonicWall Global Cyber Attack Trends report, the malware attacks upon the IoT embedded devices in 2020 are recorded to be 66% higher than that in 2019. In only one year, these cases rose from 34.3 million to 56.9 million. October 2020 was the time when the attacks were at their peak and reached 10.8 million malware cases. This count was more than that of the entire attack count of 2017.
For addressing all of such issues, Ericsson said that its new IoT security offering, TMM, can help the service providers deliver ideal security services for all IoT-connected devices. Moreover, this solution will also help them tackle and offer high-value IoT threat mitigation and monitoring services. TMM is designed to detect both unknown and known threats and offers capabilities for blocking and containing threats upon the IoT devices or services deployed within an enterprise. The core component of this new TMM solution is the Ericsson Security Manager. It enhances the overall capability of the IoT Accelerator Platform of Ericsson.
Orange Business Services, Global Network-Native Digital Services Company, partnered with Ericsson when the company was building this IoT security service. This solution will be offering security to the customers of the enterprise under IoT Services Controlled. Luc Savage, IoT Marketing Director, Orange Business Services, says that security for enterprise customers is of prime concern for them. They can offer and implement highly demanded IoT mitigation and monitoring services along with all the other connectivity services, says Savage.
He thanks the partnership with Ericsson to bring up such a solution that will help the company prevent any of the possible attacks and react accordingly. In the meanwhile, the solution takes prime concern for protecting the customer data on priority.
Asa Tamson's, Head of Business Area Technologies & New Businesses, Ericsson, adds to the statement that security is considered one of the biggest obstacles for industries and enterprises to adapt to business digitalization. Therefore, the company has put up new technology to bring out effective IoT services for addressing the concern and reduce IoT cybersecurity threats upon enterprises or industries. And for achieving that, Ericsson has integrated its security manager to the IoT Accelerator Platform for eradicating the risk potential.
