ZingBox is all set to collaborate with VMware to execute enhanced security for Internet of Things implementations.
With more than 25 percent of IoT attacks, many incidents such as the Mirai attack, NotPetya ransomware and WannaCry ransomware have clearly identified the threats which IoT attacks involve. ZingBox and VMware have promised to protect the IoT environment with the reliable addition of security at all levels of architecture. The two companies are looking to enhance security with ZingBox’s IoT personality-based approach with VMware’s Pulse IoT Center.
John Yun, head of marketing at ZingBox said in a statement, “One of the primary goals, and really the only goal is to secure IoT devices. What we recognize is that the security infrastructure, the security solutions that have been developed along with the typical IT assets like the laptops and the PCs of the world don’t apply very well to IoT. Our solution is agentless, you don't put any agents on the devices at all, and there's no disruption of communication or any type of performance degradation for these IoT devices.”
ZingBox which offers a revolutionary approach to security through non-intrusive, clientless, cloud-based technologies recently announced raising $22 million in a series B round led by Dell technologies and Tri Ventures. The company stated its intentions of employing this additional budget to quicken product capabilities and widen its market outreach this year.
