Knowing the devices connected to your network and who is accessing them is a foundational control in nearly every security framework and a requirement of many regulated industries. In the healthcare and life sciences industries, the use of connected IoT, medical devices (IoMT), and IT and operational technology (OT) equipment for business efficiency has rapidly expanded. These devices are, in many cases, life-critical and business-critical. Unfortunately, many devices are both unknown and unmanaged, expanding the attack surface, leaving security and safety gaps that can threaten patient safety and privacy, and risk business continuity if unauthorized access occurs.
The Extreme Networks and Cylera joint solution brings an easy way to holistically address these challenges through integrating Cylera’s IoT security and intelligence platform to ExtremeCloud IQSite Engine and ExtremeControl.
The Cylera Platform uses unique, patented techniques to discover and inventory assets, examining them deeply for vulnerabilities, configuration weaknesses, risk scoring, and other attributes with zero-touch - no disruption whatsoever to the physical device. This provides ongoing monitoring and awareness of IoT/IoMT devices ExtremeControl needs to know for managing user access security for devices it may otherwise not know.
