Trend Micro solves installation headache for IoT security
TMIS 2.0 platform can be pre-installed onto IoT devices during the product development lifecycle
It is virtually impossible for end users to install protection for IoT solutions by themselves with most traditional security products; Trend Micro wants to solve this limitation.
The cyber security vendor’s latest TMIS 2.0 platform can be pre-installed onto IoT devices during the product development lifecycle, requiring minimum deployment effort.
“IoT threats are no longer theoretical: endpoints around the globe are being hijacked for data theft, attacked with ransomware and crypto-mining malware, conscripted into DDoS botnets and more,” said Akihiko Omikawa, executive vice president of Trend Micro.
“By integrating threat monitoring, detection and protection into the device itself, consumers and businesses will enhance their security from the moment they install and switch on TMIS 2.0,” he added.
This updated version offers tight integration with Trend Micro’s threat intelligence platform, the Smart Protection Network, to offer a Web Reputation Service and IoT Reputation Service that blocks visits to malicious URLs/websites.
The improved installation script makes integration easier for device makers and IoT MSPs, and provides new capabilities to automate security learnings for these firms with less operational effort, the company says.
