Just because your software sits inside a piece of hardware does not mean it is secure. Hardware can have its own set of vulnerabilities, especially if it’s “legacy,” which can mean as little as three years old.
While some hardware manufacturers apply regular updates, many do not, which means exploitable vulnerabilities may be exposing the hardware to an attacker. Consider, too, that engineers who build hardware typically are not security specialists, so devices may contain vulnerabilities they had not considered. If just one exploitable vulnerability exposes your hardware, it also exposes the connected software and entire infrastructure.
X-Force® Red hardware testing services help you find, prioritize and fix the highest-risk hardware vulnerabilities, both before and after devices go to market.
