Aerohive Networks® today detailed its Internet of Things (IoT) security solution for Wi-Fi and wired networks. Built on Aerohive’s Software Defined LAN (SD-LAN), Aerohive’s solution helps protect networks from attacks, such as the October 16th Mirai botnet DDoS attack, which recruited over a half-million devices in a coordinated strike that brought down a large swath of popular internet services. Aerohive will be discussing Wi-Fi security on Facebook Live on November 3, 2016.
Aerohive’s SD-LAN addresses recent IoT attack vulnerabilities by putting security protection at the point where IoT traffic first touches the network. Key capabilities of the solution include protecting wireless access networks with next-generation Software Defined Private Pre-Shared Key (PPSK) that restrict network access to specific known and authenticated devices, application visibility and control to evaluate what is happening on the network, firewall enforcement based on deep packet inspection to strictly enforce traffic policies, and cloud management to enable immediate identification and response to an issue anywhere in the network.
