Inside X-Force Red's global labs, test your devices before and after they go to market

The Internet of Things (IoT), Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Operational Technology (OT) are everywhere. Whether it’s an Internet-connected television, doorbell, surveillance system, power grid, or even a vending machine, you cannot escape these “smart” devices, and the demand for them is only increasing.

According to IHS Markit, the number of IoT devices is estimated to grow to nearly 21 billion by 2020. Considering this staggering statistic, it has never been more important for manufacturers to design these technologies securely so that criminals cannot exploit them.

X-Force® Red Labs’ expert penetration testers can pull apart, tear down, reverse engineer, modify, compromise, exploit and test every aspect of your IoT, IIoT and OT technologies. With state-of-the-art IoT, IIoT and OT testing labs worldwide, the X-Force Red Labs team is equipped to break into just about any Internet-connected device and remediate vulnerabilities throughout the development lifecycle.

To reduce the risk of a costly breach in the future, it's best to fix vulnerabilities before a product is released. Using advanced hardware and software testing methodologies, equipment, and resources, X-Force Red's team of veteran hackers will identify vulnerabilities in your IoT, IIoT, and OT devices, associated ecosystem, and support infrastructure before criminal attackers can get their hands on them.

Using the X-Force Red portal, you can see the vulnerabilities our team uncovers in real-time, enabling you to remediate the most critical ones immediately.
