Telefonica via its subsidiary ElevenPaths has unveiled a dedicated cyber security offering,  Faast to counteract cyber attacks on the Internet of Things (IoT). The solution specializes in detecting and analyzing security threats to organisations based on persistent pentesting which is now extended to cover IoT.

According to Telefonica, Faast can also provide organizations with an integral cyber security solution that protects them from threats to traditional devices connected to their systems such as web cams, printers, routers, video- conference systems or televisions. Faast's new features enables continuous scanning of IoT devices connected to the organization.

Faast's new security analysis capability for IoT completes the portfolio of different security solutions for IoT currently offered by Telefónica such as Trusted Public Key Infrastructure that facilitates the identification and authentication of IoT devices connected to the network; Security Monitoring, which detects unusual behaviour of IoT devices based on its network traffic; and CyberThreats, capable of detecting and identifying the modus vivandi of the cybercriminals, and the methods used in attacks against IoT infrastructures.

Chema Alonso, CEO of ElevenPaths
The evolution of Vamps & Faast towards IoT will allow companies to rely on a persistent pentesting and vulnerability management system that will facilitate the quick discovery of new connected devices and possible bugs, thereby reducing the exposure time of these devices to these threats.
