Overview

Whether it’s an Internet-connected television, doorbell, power grid or even a vending machine, the demand for Internet of Things (IoT), Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Operational Technology (OT) devices is only increasing. With billions of IoT devices in the market, it’s never been more important for manufacturers to design these technologies securely before products are released so criminals can’t exploit them.

Benefits

Test during design

IBM Security X-Force® Red works closely with product engineers during design to help build in security and help you prioritize the most critical IoT, IIoT and OT security vulnerabilities throughout the development lifecycle.

Test post-design

X-Force Red tests products and everything connected to them after they’re in the market to ensure a systematic and thorough approach to testing.

Assist with remediation

With real-time visibility into testing results, X-Force Red connects you on demand with a security tester to quickly uncover vulnerabilities and provide remediation recommendations.
