Firmware is emerging as the latest cyber attack surface vulnerable to exploitation. Forward thinking enterprises are working with their CPE and IoT providers to ensure that risk is minimized. Sectigo and ReFirm Labs announce partnership to provide the leading firmware risk assessment solution.
Device firmware presents a largely unprotected attack surface that hackers can use to gain access to—and move laterally within—corporate or critical infrastructure networks. The explosion of connected devices has escalated this risk, leading industry groups, including the U.S. Cyberspace Solarium Commission, to recommend stronger regulatory enforcement and clearer baseline standards and guidance for IoT device manufacturers and their supply chains to combat attacks on device firmware.
