A recent analysis of Internet of Things device traffic identified various IoT connected devices that were exhibiting potentially dangerous behaviors including using plain-text HTTP protocol for authentication or firmware updates, leaving them susceptible to sniffing and man-in-the-middle attacks.
As part of its Cyber Protection Program, Tyco Security Products considers security at the beginning of the product development process resulting in features and capabilities needed to secure the product in its environment. For example, VideoEdge NVRs provide a Security Audit page that allows integrators and end-users a single view of their security posture of the device.
The audit page is an important tool for customers, giving them visibility on all accounts with remaining default passwords, enable / disabled status of ports and protocols such as HTTP, TLS certificates, and user security configurations such as password complexity, auto logout, account lockout.
Tyco Security Products’ is committed to cybersecurity. Our holistic Cyber Protection Program combines best practices in secure product development, testing and evaluation, rapid response to potential vulnerabilities, and configuration guidelines for compliance.
