Stefanini Cyber Defense is using the Shield-IoT Coreset-AI Asset Management and Threat Prevention Platform to help its customers protect their IoT and industrial IoT (IIoT) devices, applications and networks against cyberattacks.

Commenting on his company's partnership with Shield-IoT, Stefanini Cyber Defense's CEO Leidivino Natal said:

"As IoT networks continue to grow and as new threats emerge, customers require a single cost-effective solution that can automatically adapt to meet their needs. Stefanini and Shield-IoT provide a single centralized 'future-proof' solution to protect any existing or future IoT device, application or network with minimal total cost of ownership (TCO) for our customers."

Stefanini Cyber Defense and Shield-IoT Launch a New Security Service

Organizations can use a new joint service from Stefanini Cyber Defense and Shield-IoT across multiple IoT and IIoT verticals, including:

  • Energy
  • Water
  • Gas
  • Oil
  • Transportation
  • Mining

The new service lets users generate security alerts and analyze device-to-cloud traffic statistics to detect cyberattacks before they can disrupt their networks, data or IoT or IIoT services, Stefanini Cyber Defense indicated. It also provides insights into different types of security events and their severity and minimizes the risk of data theft and ransomware and critical infrastructure attacks.

Stefanini Cyber Defense and Shield-IoT are offering the new service worldwide. In addition, the service is delivered by security professionals and backed by Stefanini Cyber Defense's security operations centers (SOCs) in Brazil, Peru, Romania and India.

A Closer Look at Stefanini Cyber Defense and Shield-IoT

Stefanini Cyber Defense offers several managed security services, including:

  • Automatic vulnerability detection
  • Managed detection and response (MDR)
  • Managed security monitoring

Along with these, Stefanini Cyber Defense provides cyber defense, governance, risk and compliance (GRC) and cybersecurity advisory services. It also helps organizations create custom solutions to drive digital innovation, the MSSP noted.

Shield-IoT offers solutions that organizations can use to monitor and secure their out-of-perimeter devices across their IoT and IIoT applications, the business said. It automatically detects cyberattacks and provides continuous threat mitigation without changing an organization's networks.

MSSPs, MSPs and other technology providers can leverage Shield-IoT's technologies through its partner program. By joining the program, technology providers can add IoT and IIoT security services to their portfolios.
