Cybereason, a network security company established in 2012, recently announced that it had reached a strategic alliance with the ARM, plans to embed Cybereason’s terminal protection, detection and response capabilities into the ARM. Pelion IoT (Internet of Things) platform.

Cybereason said that in the future, the company would provide instant AI threat tracking and advanced behaviour analysis on the IoT device using the ARM Pelion platform, which is expected to benefit the vast number of IoT devices, whether they are in utilities, energy, transportation. In logistics, or in connected buildings, it is expected that one trillion IoT devices will be protected by 2035.

Dipesh Patel, president of ARM IoT Services, said that the explosive growth of IoT devices has opened up a new attack surface for hackers. Pelion’s device management services and Cybereason technology will allow customers to understand the communication modes and behaviours of the Internet of Things (IoT) devices and activities to stop malicious actions as soon as they unfold.

The exponential growth and complexity of IoT devices has opened an entirely new attack surface for adversaries,” said Dipesh Patel, President, IoT Services Group, Arm. “Through our partnership with Cybereason and the Pelion Device Management service, our customers will have essential visibility into the communication patterns, behaviors and activities of IoT-connected devices, enabling them to stop malicious activity at its inception.”
