Microsoft has announced the general availability of new enterprise IoT security capabilities in its Defender for IoT solution. The company says that these features should help businesses better secure their unmanaged IoT devices connected to enterprise networks.
Microsoft Defender for IoT (Formerly known as Azure Defender for IoT) is a security offering that protects enterprise Internet of Things (IoT) devices such as Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) phones, smart conferencing systems, printers, and scanners. The service also helps organizations to secure operational technology (OT) in various industries, including manufacturing, oil & gas, as well as energy and water.
Microsoft highlights that this release brings support for several new security protections for enterprise IoT devices, including threat detection and vulnerability management. These features were previously only available for managed endpoints and OT devices in enterprise environments.
“Defender for IoT now delivers comprehensive security for all endpoint types, applications, identities, and operating systems. The new capabilities allow organizations to get the visibility and insights they need to address complex multi-stage attacks that specifically take advantage of IoT and OT devices to achieve their goals,” explained Michal Braverman-Blumenstyk, Microsoft’s CVP and CTO of cloud and AI security.
