Xage Security launches first tamperproof system to Protect IIoT from zero-day malware attacks

Built to avoid single points of security failure and designed to protect legacy components, Xage’s solution is the first designed to fully tamperproof these mission-critical systems.

Xage Security, leading IT company providing blockchain-protected security platform for Industrial IoT (IIoT) announces today, the first and only tamperproofing system for IIoT deployments, an extension of the Xage security fabric ’s blockchain-protected IoT tamperproofing technology.

The company informed via its blog that the newly developed, blockchain-protected fingerprinting technology creates a unique digital replica of every physical machine and an immutable machine fingerprint record. Deployed on top of the Xage security fabric, digital replica fingerprinting creates identities and authentication for systems that don’t have them and detects changes made to a controller or device in real-time. If an unauthorized change is made, the Xage fabric will flag and isolate the affected device, securing the network against malware attacks that are otherwise undetectable.

“As industrial control systems are increasingly networked, and as shared networks are used across multiple devices, new IoT cyber attack vectors are opening up. Not surprisingly, the rate of attack is increasing dramatically, motivated by theft, vandalism, and state-sponsored infrastructure compromise. In the face of this escalating exposure, we need to address the underlying security risks of IoT adoption now, before it’s too late,” said Xage CEO, Duncan Greatwood.

“For the first time, blockchain-protected fingerprinting delivers tamperproofing system-wide across industrial IoT processes, creating a fail-safe security layer that proactively mitigates the vulnerability," Greatwood added.

Built to avoid single points of security failure and designed to protect legacy components, Xage’s solution is the first designed to fully tamperproof these mission-critical systems, the blog further added.
