059 – Securing the Internet of Things
Securing remote IT sites is orders of magnitude more difficult than it was just a few short years ago. In addition to the traditional remote/branch office (ROBO) network, we’re now in the Internet of Things (IoT) and edge computing age.
With the number of connected devices exploding, getting a handle on securing it all is daunting. But Cybera has come up with an innovative solution. Using their software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) technology, they break the problem down into smaller bits; rather than securing “the network,” they secure the single user; the single device; the single app; and so on.
Doing it that way enables their solutions to scale in a way not previously possible, says Cybera President and Founder Cliff Duffey. He chats with ActualTech Partner James Green about how Cybera is redefining SD-WAN for the modern challenge of remote computing.
Highlights of the show include:
- A short history of Cybera
- Cybera’s unique approach to securing SD-WAN
- How SD-WAN solutions have changed over time
- Fuel pumps as IoT devices
- How Cybera helped one of their retail gas customers reduce card fraud losses
- Other use cases for SD-WAN security, including health care and kiosks
