Webroot & Lynx partner to secure IoT

News: Partnership seeks real-time threat detection and immediate responses to threats.

By Joao Lima

Internet security provider Webroot and Lynx Software Technologies have entered into a partnership to secure IoT devices from targeted attacks.

The companies said they will be working to enable developers to build advanced threat detection and protection into IoT and iIoT devices.

Webroot will put into the partnership its BrightCloud network and its IoT Security Toolkit, while Lynx said it will use the LynxSecure Hypervisor virtualisation platform.

The companies said that by combining the two solutions, they will be able to deliver advance threat detection and protection in real time.

Any threats that enter the IoT environment can be identified by Webroot’s BrightCloud threat intelligence, quarantined using the LynxSecure isolation capabilities, and removed from the system.

Gurjot Singh, CEO of Lynx Software Technologies, said: "By integrating solutions powered by cloud-based threat intelligence from Webroot, we can substantially increase threat awareness and resilience to protect the increasing number of IoT systems that are being connected to the outside world."
