Spire Solutions has partnered with IoT and firmware security solutions provider Finite State to bring its unique, proactive IoT security platform to the Middle East.
The value-added distributor said that it will add Finite State's solutions to its portfolio in response to growing deployment of IoT in the region - and the mounting vulnerabilities that come with unsecured IoT devices.
"The growing deployment of IoT devices within the corporate infrastructure is an asset, of course, but can also scale up risk. Backdoor accounts, software vulnerabilities and poor authentication are common problems. Simply keeping devices updated with manufacturer patches or depending on your enterprise security stack is not always effective," said Avinash Advani, CEO of Spire Solutions.
"We have built our reputation for being the region's preferred security partner by offering value-driven tools and services that efficiently solve a broad range of IT management challenges. The Finite State Platform is a unique, comprehensive tool to defend against IoT vulnerabilities, unlike any the region has seen so far."
"The Finite State Platform employs national-security grade capabilities to identify and secure IoT vulnerabilities. With its ability to provide unparalleled visibility into IoT devices, detect and assess risks, isolate attacks and send advance alerts to IT teams, it can be a tremendous asset to businesses in the Middle East. After evaluating its reach and reputation within the region, we believe Spire Solutions is the right partner to help us bring this platform to the Middle East," said Matt Wyckhouse, CEO of Finite State.
