Request a Smart Device Risk Assessment
The HyperContext™ Platform
The number, type, and mix of smart devices in business environments is rapidly expanding, but the vast majority are invisible to SecOps. To regain control, IT organizations need visibility into all devices in their environment and must be able to apply granular policies to mitigate risks and prevent data loss.
Enter WootCloud HyperContext™ Device Security – the only solution that provides contextualized visibility into devices, their behavior, network access, and threat intelligence.
With an explosion in the number of smart devices that are now connected via multiple communication protocols like wifi, zigbee, bluetooth, ble and cellular networks, fingerprinting the device needs to be done based on the unique characteristics of the device across multiple dimensions. These dimensions are not limited to a specific interface of the device, but include multiple layers all the way from hardware, software, logical, functional, and other operational characteristics.
This means that information about the device collected all the way from RF, each physical interface, protocol, traffic flow, application is combined with organizational information from CMDB, other tools like MDM, EDR, vulnerability assessment, firewall, location is learned by supervised, unsupervised machine learning algorithms and rule sets to reveal patterns embedded in these measurements. These algorithms and rule sets generate models and signatures for each device to generate the following information which is called HyperContext™ which includes:
All the collected data and the intermediate insights are then used to develop a device identity fingerprint, a device group fingerprint and device operational fingerprint. These fingerprints accurately recognize the device, group similar devices, and establish the device’s normal operation and function. This is used to establish an effective device security architecture by:
