Cybersecurity solutions provider Check Point Software Technologies has announced a new IoT cyber security technology to protect against fifth and sixth generation cyber attacks following its acquisition of Cymplify, a Tel-Aviv based startup.

Check Point says the acquisition will strengthen its ability to proactively challenge IoT related threats and vulnerabilities, with the new technology to be integrated into its Infinity architecture.

Check Point claims it is the first company to provide a consolidated security solution that hardens and protects the firmware of IoT devices and makes them secure against the most sophisticated attacks.

According to Check Point the proliferation of Internet-of-things (IoT) devices in consumer, enterprise, industrial and healthcare organisations, and their inherent security weaknesses, have created a security blind spot where cybercriminals launch 5th and 6th generation of cyber attacks to breach devices (IP camera surveillance), manipulate their operation (medical device infiltration) or even take over critical infrastructure (manufacturing plant) to generate “colossal damage”.

With the technology, it is now possible to take an IP camera, a Smart TV, an elevator controller or a medical device such as an infusion pump, and in a rapid manner, harden and protect it against advanced zero day attacks, Check Point says.

“Today’s announcement represents our continuous effort to provide the best cyber security on all digital platforms” said Dr Dorit Dor, Check Point VP Products.

“The 5th and 6th generations of cyber threats are leveraging the growing usage of new and developing platforms, including IoT devices which require extending cyber security solutions capabilities.

“Incorporating Cymplify into Check Point’s Infinity architecture will strengthen our ability to reduce our customers’ exposure to the IoT cyber risk, and proactively tackle IoT related threats and vulnerabilities without disrupting critical operations.”
