FOXMOLE helps address the multiple challenges now present in the workplace:
With every technical enhancement in both offices and homes comes an associated risk. Take simple computer automated electric blinds in a large building - what if this system was accessed and security shutters were opened in the night to allow thieves to break in? This is not a common employee or householder concern, but perhaps should be. What if the infrastructure vendor no longer releases security updates? What if it has a remote support/access functionality with a default password that has not been changed?
At the end of the sophistication spectrum are apps allowing house or office doors to be opened without a swipe card or key. These apps risk exposure to hackers if proper safeguards are not in place. Every aspect of a building that has a technology component with some form of connectivity risks hacking. FOXMOLE has solid experience of how physical structures are vulnerable to security threats, and how to mitigate these.
Industry research suggest there will be 50 billion connected devices by 2020. The rise of IoT offers huge potential for efficiencies and improved quality of life. However, there are multiple security risks to the use of anything that is connected to the Internet, for example:
All of these feature embedded systems that can be hard to patch when a vulnerability is identified. FOXMOLE offers strategic advice as to how to adopt IoT rapidly yet securely.
