News provided by Share this article Share this article Viakoo Honored as Next Gen IoT Security Winner in Cyber Defense Magazine's 2023 Global InfoSec Awards MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., April 24, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Viakoo , the leader in IoT (internet of things) vulnerability remediation, today announced that it was named a winner of the Cyber Defense Magazine (CDM) 2023 Global InfoSec Awards: Next Gen Internet of Things (IoT) Security at the RSA Conference. The Global InfoSec Awards honor information security innovators who provide industry-leading products and services. Viakoo's consistent recognition across the industry highlights the effectiveness of the company's approach to IoT/OT security. Viakoo's solution, Viakoo Action Platform , provides an automated scalable solution for defending IoT attack surfaces and ensures every enterprise IoT device is 100% visible, operational, and secure. "We're very excited to be recognized as the Next Gen IoT Security solution from Cyber Defense Magazine," said Bud Broomhead, CEO of Viakoo. "Our history of providing over 1 billion hours of IoT service assurance solutions allowed us to take on the challenge of IoT vulnerability remediation and provide breakthrough innovations to solve these challenges. The competition was fierce this year and we proudly accept this honor." Until now, IoT devices have not been managed to the same standards of IT devices and have inadvertently created a massive attack surface for cybercriminals resulting in ransomware, data exfiltration, and creation of botnet armies using IoT devices. Viakoo took notice of this and designed the next-gen Viakoo Action Platform to remediate existing device vulnerabilities in order to fill the gap. "Viakoo embodies three major features we judges look for to become winners: understanding tomorrow's threats, today, providing a cost-effective solution and innovating in unexpected ways that can help mitigate cyber risk and get one step ahead of the next breach," said Gary S. Miliefsky, Publisher of Cyber Defense Magazine. The award judges are CISSP, FMDHS, CEH, certified security professionals who voted based on their review of company submitted materials including but not limited to data sheets, white papers, product literature and other market variables.
