Daily Security Checks: IoT Inspector Monitoring Protects Companies Against New Cyber Threats Every Day

P R E S S  R E L E A S E Daily Security Checks: IoT Inspector Monitoring Protects Companies Against New Cyber Threats Every Day Bad Homburg, Germany – November 10, 2020 – Since IT security is not a static condition and new critical vulnerabilities are being identified every day, the firmware analysis platform IoT Inspector has now been enriched by new monitoring functions that allow to continuously analyze the security of IoT devices. Every firmware enrolled in the monitoring process is automatically re-analyzed every day for newly detected security vulnerabilities. As a result, companies obtain a new dynamic and quality in IoT security.

Fast response times are critical in defending against cyber-attacks and maintaining high security standards. However, identifying new software vulnerabilities is very time-consuming and resource-intensive, especially if analyses are performed manually. But the longer vulnerabilities remain undiscovered, the greater the risk that cybercriminals can successfully exploit these. Critical and previously neglected areas such as the Internet of Things are particularly prone to be affected. Conventional IoT devices such as printers, routers, network cameras, keyless access systems or smart climate control systems can quickly become a “Trojan Horse” and facilitate network infiltration or data theft. The IoT Inspector Monitoring addresses this problem by analyzing the IoT firmware daily for newly discovered vulnerabilities, thus also alerting newly created compliance violations.

The advantages of IoT Inspector Monitoring at a glance:

  • Increased visibility: By checking the IoT firmware for newly published security vulnerabilities on a daily basis, companies receive valuable input for their risk management and can derive appropriate mitigation measures.
  • Automation saves resources: The IoT Inspector works fully automatically, eliminating the need for resource-intensive manual checks. This enables companies to keep pace with the speed that cyber criminals are demonstrating today.
  • Instant notification: When new vulnerabilities are detected, the user is notified immediately. This also applies to changes in previously discovered problems. The customer always has full visibility about possible attack points in their devices.

“IT security is not a state that you reach and then allows to sit back. Maintaining a high security level is an ongoing process,” says Rainer M. Richter, Managing Director of IoT Inspector GmbH. “This is increasingly challenging for companies because the threat landscape changes from day to day, from hour to hour. Every day new vulnerabilities are discovered that affect IoT devices and especially their firmware. With our new IoT Inspector Monitoring, we are now offering our customers continuous monitoring, which enables them to guarantee a high level of security at all times”.


ONEKEY is the leading European specialist in Product Cybersecurity & Compliance Management and part of the investment portfolio of PricewaterhouseCoopers Germany (PwC). The unique combination of an automated Product Cybersecurity & Compliance Platform (PCCP) with expert knowledge and consulting services provides fast and comprehensive analysis, support, and management to improve product cybersecurity and compliance from product purchasing, design, development, production to end-of-life.

Critical vulnerabilities and compliance violations in device firmware are automatically identified in binary code by AI-based technology in minutes – without source code, device, or network access. Proactively audit software supply chains with integrated software bill of materials (SBOM) generation. “Digital Cyber Twins” enable automated 24/7 post-release cybersecurity monitoring throughout the product lifecycle.

The patent-pending, integrated Compliance Wizard™ already covers the upcoming EU Cyber Resilience Act (CRA) and existing requirements according to IEC 62443-4-2, ETSI EN 303 645, UNECE R 155 and many others.

The Product Security Incident Response Team (PSIRT) is effectively supported by the integrated automatic prioritisation of vulnerabilities, significantly reducing the time to remediation.

Leading international companies in Asia, Europe and the Americas already benefit from the ONEKEY Product Cybersecurity & Compliance Platform and ONEKEY Cybersecurity Experts.
