Symantec Protects Over a Billion Devices
As IoT transforms entire industries, creating tremendous benefits and new risks, Symantec already helps protect over a billion IoT devices. From smart televisions to critical infrastructure, we help securely protect and manage devices and communications, and deliver analytics to detect stealthy, sophisticated advanced threats to IoT systems.
Critical System Protection
Secure devices with embedded operating systems
Protect IoT devices against attacks. Symantec Critical System Protection protects leading embedded operating systems, including Linux, QNX, and Windows Embedded operating systems. Starting with a core technology that has protected vital financial servers for years, we’ve extended the technology to protect automotive, Industrial Control Systems (ICS), manufacturing equipment, ATM, Point of Sale (POS), and medical devices.
Device Certificates for Strong Authentication
Protect your communications
Authenticate IoT devices and encrypt data transmitted throughout IoT systems and networks. Build security into your IoT systems and products so that they are secure by design. Such proper mutual authentication can help ensure that devices only accept connections and commands from authorized systems, avoiding the pitfalls hackers exercising unauthorized control of devices such as vehicles, medical equipment, industrial equipment, and smart city infrastructure.
- Easily embedded into any device, with or without operating systems.
- Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) for extremely constrained devices, low MHz, very few KB of SRAM.
Code Signing Certificates
Control permission for code to run on your devices
- Supports cloud signing & control of ELF & Java file formats.
- Supports complex relationships between authors & publishers.
- Helps manage complicated ecosystems of tiered suppliers.
Ensure that the code running on your devices is code you have authorized to run, and not code loaded by attackers. Symantec Code Signing Certificates can be used:
- With most chipsets, including Secure Boot chipsets with proprietary tools requiring supported algorithms.
- For application-level code signing and verification through popular open-source cryptographic libraries such as OpenSSL and Micro-ECC.
Symantec Secure App Service helps manage signing permissions for internal and partner software developers:
- Ensuring that you control which supplier code is authorized to run on systems you distribute.
- Protecting code-signing keys as employees and partners come and go.
Build comprehensive security Into vehicles, by design
Improve in-vehicle security by protecting:
- In Vehicle Infotainment (IVI)
- Controller Area Network (CAN) bus
- Embedded controllers
- On Board Diagnostics (OBD-II) port
Security for Industrial Control Systems (ICS)
Protect ICS, manufacturing, and process control systems
Protect manufacturing and process control systems:
- Industrial automation
- Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC)
- Connected systems that form the backbone of Industry 4.0
Design more easily-manageable security into medical equipment and protect healthcare networks that have both legacy and latest equipment. Symantec security solutions can help healthcare providers protect and manage equipment from many different providers. Symantec security solutions can also help medical device makers build better security into new generations of medical equipment, which they are bringing to market each year. From implants and ingestible devices to bedside equipment and heavy radiology equipment, Symantec offers the most comprehensive family of security technologies for medical equipment in the industry.
Automatic Teller Machine (ATM) & Point of Sale (POS) Solutions
News headlines have been inundated with stories of credit card breaches and ATM malware. Don’t be the next victim.
Solutions for Other Verticals
For years, Symantec has helped embed security into critical infrastructure, Smart Cities, and Consumer Electronics.
“Symantec's core security technology combined with Wincor Nixdorf’s domain knowledge has resulted in a solution that offers best-in-class security against software attacks on ATMs.”
