IoT Device Passwords open the door to your network
Default and enterprise-wide passwords provide the simplest path to hacking any IoT device. Most enterprises have strict password policies and compliance requirements for their end-point devices and servers, but many don’t have a viable way to verify that those requirements are being followed. Manually checking passwords on distributed IoT devices is a slow and tedious task. At scale, it is virtually impossible, leaving devices and networks vulnerable to outside attack.
Viakoo Action delivers automated verification of password and password policy management for thousands of IoT devices from many vendors at any scale.
Know Your Password Status
The Viakoo Action Platform is an automated solution that verifies network cameras are not using default or commonly used passwords, which are a proven network vulnerability for cyberattacks. Additionally, automated password verification helps ensure compliance to many standards, including PCI, NERC, NIST, etc, which require that surveillance networks can’t be compromised because of lax password standards.
Password Policies That Work
As with all IT devices, enterprises need to create and enforce IoT device password policy consistently. Viakoo Action makes checking password policy automated and simple. Automated password checking also provides visibility at all levels and locations of your organization to demonstrate that you are on top of password management.
Enabling Comprehensive Cyber Hygiene
Deploying passwords by device across many individual vendor systems is not safe, efficient, or secure. With a click of a button, Viakoo Action can validate changes and create an audit trail for compliance. Viakoo helps you to manage the complete life cycle of passwords- and operates at the enterprise level so you can manage cyber hygiene across multiple sites and geographies.
With Viakoo, you’ll rest assured you have solid password protection and stronger security in minutes instead of months.
