Netherlands-based security firm KPN Security and flash-to-cloud protection services provider NanoLock Security jointly demonstrated NanoLock’s security solutions at NLSecur[ID] event. The event witnessed KPN and NanoLock Security’s presentation on how attackers tamper customer electricity usage by breaking into smart meters and how NanoLock’s protection can block and report such attacks.
NanoLock claimed that by using its cyber protection and management, KPN can expand its cybersecurity services to IoT device-level protection, advanced monitoring for products like smart meters, cameras, and other IoT devices. It’s said that NanoLock’s device-level solution protects IoT devices against cyberattacks, extending a powerful flash-to-cloud defense.
Based in the Netherlands, KPN is a telecom and security firm that provides mobile, internet, and television for consumers and enterprises. Sjoerd Hulzinga, IoT Security Product Manager, KPN, said, “IoT connectivity is among the fastest-growing demands from businesses and other customers alike. With NanoLock’s protection, management and monitoring of IoT devices integrated into KPN’s SOC, we will be able to offer our customers a robust cybersecurity solution. This will ensure that as our product and customer ecosystem continue to take hold in the IoT space, we are able to keep them protected from growing cyber threats and vulnerabilities.”
Yoni Kahana, VP Business Development, NanoLock Security, said, “As IoT continues to gain momentum in the telecom and utility industries, we believe that more companies will require new techniques to keep these critical devices and networks safe. By leveraging NanoLock’s solution, KPN customers will be protected from potential cyberattacks and vulnerabilities, and KPN will receive important monitoring analytics and forensic data that can be leveraged to understand trends and prevent the next attack.”
In related news, the U.K. government recently introduced a new legislation to improve security standards of the consumer IoT devices. The law, launched by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media, and Sport (DCMS), will mandate that IoT devices sold in the country must adhere to advanced security standards. The new regulations, jointly developed by DCMS and the National Cyber Security Centre, are intended for companies that manufacture and sell consumer IoT devices.
