IoT 구축으로 네트워크 보호

IoT 장치는 매일 거의 100만 대씩 경이적인 속도로 네트워크에 구축되고 있습니다.  이러한 장치 덕분에 새롭고 흥미로운 방법으로 효율성, 유연성, 생산성을 개선할 수 있지만 네트워크에 새로운 위험을 가지고 오는 것도 사실입니다. 종종 보안 없이 설계된 IoT 장치는 공격을 시작할 때 악당 노릇을 하는 새로운 위협 요소가 되었습니다. 분산되어 있어서 아무런 문제가 없는 것처럼 보이는 이러한 장치들이 공격에 이용된 경우가 이미 여러 차례 목격되었습니다.

IoT 시대에 보호를 제공하기 위해 네트워크 사업자는 다음을 수행할 수 있는 도구와 역량이 필요합니다.

  • 네트워크에 있는 모든 장치를 확인하고 프로파일링함으로써 어떤 IoT 장치가 구축되었는지를 파악합니다.
  • 네트워크에 연결하고 장치가 액세스할 수 있는 곳을 결정하는 등 네트워크에 대한 액세스를 제어합니다.
  • 네트워크에 있는 장치를 모니터링하여 보안이 훼손되지 않았는지 확인하고 훼손된 경우 자동으로 즉각적인 조치를 취합니다.

Fortinet은 네트워크 액세스 제어 제품인 FortiNAC를 통해 이러한 기능을 제공합니다.  Security Fabric에 완벽하게 통합된 FortiNAC는 IoT 장치의 세상에서 보안을 제공하는 데 필요한 가시성, 제어 및 자동화된 응답을 제공합니다.

 

IoT Security Risks

As more workers embrace the digital nomad lifestyle, their proliferation of devices on corporate networks creates security complexity at the application level. And all of these applications need to comply to the security policies of the organization, keeping users, their devices, and the network secure.

Security can be both a reason to inhibit and develop IoT services and their adoption. To deliver IoT services and solutions securely to an organization, mobile network operators (MNOs) must include security as part of their solutions and services in order to:

  1. Protect the MNO’s infrastructure against threats to ensure service continuity
  2. Deliver IoT security SLAs to encourage IoT service adoption and acceptance
  3. Generate revenue via IoT security services

IoT Solutions Demand Immediate Focus on Network Security

Providing protection for IoT devices and the networks they connect to should include Zero-Trust principles, including the tight management of access control. Whether in enterprise, medical, industrial, or other settings where IoT devices proliferate, it’s critical to ensure IT administrators can:

  1. Understand what IoT devices are being deployed by seeing and profiling every device connecting to the network
  2. Manage access to the network, including not only what devices are connecting to the network, but also what areas of the network IoT devices can access
  3. Monitor the IoT devices once on the network, to ensure access stays consistent and the devices don’t become compromised
  4. Automatically take immediate action in the event of a device compromise or other security issue

Network Access Control (NAC)

To provide protection in the age of IoT, network operators need solutions that can:

  1. See and profile every device on the network to understand what IoT devices are being deployed
  2. Control access to the network, both connecting to the network and determining where devices can access
  3. Monitor the devices on the network to ensure that they are not compromised and to take automatic and immediate action if they are

Fortinet provides these capabilities through our network access control product, FortiNAC. Fully integrated into the security fabric, FortiNAC delivers the visibility, control, and automated response needed to provide security in a world of IoT devices.

Protect networks with IoT deployments

IoT devices are being deployed into networks at a phenomenal rate, up to 1 million devices each day.  While these devices are enabling new and exciting ways to improve efficiency, flexibility, and productivity, they also bring a new risk to the network.   Frequently designed without security, IoT devices have become a new threat vector for bad actors to use when launching attacks.  We have already seen several attacks leveraging these distributed, seemingly innocent devices. 

To provide protection in the age of IoT, network operators need to have the tools and skills to:

  • See and profile every device on the network, to understand what IoT devices are being deployed
  • Control access to the network, both connecting to the network and determining where devices can access
  • Monitor the devices on the network to ensure that they are not compromised and to take automatic and immediate action if they are

Fortinet provides these capabilities through our network access control product FortiNAC.  Fully integrated into the Security Fabric, FortiNAC delivers the visibility, control, and automated response needed to provide security in a world of IoT devices.
