Phosphorus.io Partners with Redapt

By Nick Sutherland | Posted on December 23, 2022 | Posted in Cybersecurity and Compliance

While Extended Internet of Things (xIoT) and operational technology (OT) systems are growing in popularity due to their ability to improve efficiency and convenience, they are often left out of security discussions. 

Unfortunately, these technologies offer plenty of opportunities for enterprising hackers. Default passwords, out-of-date firmware, and unpatched vulnerabilities are all common and, as businesses are beginning to rely more heavily on xIoT and OT systems, these security lapses can become major problems.

That’s why we’re proud to announce our new partnership with Phosphorus Cybersecurity®, the leading xTended Security of Things™ platform.

More and more, enterprises are calling for solutions to manage their xIoT attack surface and assist with remediation. Together, Redapt and Phosphorus are helping clients take the important steps needed to reduce their security risk. These include actions such as: 

  • Identifying and securing devices with privileged accounts and credentials
  • Targeting specific methods to reduce IT/OT system intrusion 


The Phosphorus Platform

As the primary provider of proactive and full-scope security for the xIoT, Phosphorus allows enterprises to more effectively scale their xIoT technologies. More devices equate to greater vulnerability, but Phosphorus’s Enterprise xIoT Security Platform is the first and only automated security platform capable of delivering:

  • xIoT Attack Surface Management
  • xIoT Hardening and Remediation
  • xIoT Detection and Response across the full range of IoT, OT, and network-connected devices—spanning both new and legacy devices

Essentially, it supports organizations by identifying, classifying, and assessing every single xIoT, OT, and network device, then automates the remediation of the biggest vulnerabilities—including unknown and inaccurate asset inventory, out-of-date firmware, default credentials, risky configurations, and out-of-date certificates. Additionally, the Enterprise xIoT Security Platform securely maintains and monitors all devices.


What This Partnership Means for You

As smart devices grow more and more popular within enterprises, this growth has led to an increase in cyber attacks. There’s potential for devices to be exploited both remotely or locally, sometimes even allowing attackers greater access to enterprise networks. 

Securing these technologies becomes even more challenging when you account for the fact that some xIoT assets weren’t originally created to connect to the internet or might not be regularly updated. Addressing these vulnerabilities requires expertise, time, and resources many IT teams and managers simply don’t possess.

Our partnership with Phosphorus allows you to:

  • Address serious security lapses
  • Protect all your xIoT and OT systems
  • Scale your xIoT technologies without needing to add additional employees to keep them secure
