Extreme Networks Securing Edge Devices with Defender for IoT
February 11, 2019 / Yana Yelina
Use of IoT devices is proliferating in every industry, and with this growth comes risk – reports of IoT attacks increased 600 percent from 2016 to 2017. To protect enterprise networks, Extreme Networks recently announced the general availability of its Defender for IoT, a security solution designed to help organizations secure unsecured IoT devices. Defender for IoT reportedly can be deployed on any network and is easy to use so non-technical staff at schools, hospitals, retailers and hospitality venues can use it to isolate and protect both wired and wireless IoT devices from cyberattacks.
