"The insights gleaned from continuous monitoring with SecurityScorecard ratings data helps Snowflake data cloud customers get a broad view into  their Third Party Risk Management, supply chain management, and business intelligence applications with continuous cybersecurity data."

SecurityScorecard collects and analyzes global threat signals that give organizations instant visibility into the security posture of vendors and business partners as well as the capability to do a self-assessment of their own security posture. The technology continuously monitors 10 groups of risk factors to instantly deliver an easy-to-understand A-F rating.

Sternum Offers NXP Marketplace Real-time IoT Security and Observability Solution

Sternum | June 21, 2022

Sternum, a pioneer in autonomous IoT security and observability, has joined NXP Semiconductors' software partner community, one of the world's top makers of embedded controllers and largest marketplaces. As a result, IoT manufacturers that rely on NXP for their controller supply will be able to effortlessly integrate Sternum's proprietary security and visibility capabilities into their products as a result of this agreement. With a CPU overhead of less than 3% during the DD process, Sternum's Embedded Integrity Verification was able to disarm the threats evaluated by NXP researchers. The sternum is a great addition to NXP products since it successfully handles increased remote runtime assaults against linked devices. According to P&S Intelligence, the embedded security business will be worth more than $10 billion by the end of the decade. The graph depicts a growing need to secure more ubiquitous linked gadgets and cyber-physical systems, which are expanding in both consumer and corporate sectors, against exploitation. IoT devices, which are frequently weak in both security and visibility, are transforming whole industries—and have surfaced as a critical security breach in enterprises' security perimeters. Without proactive security measures, businesses are forced to rely on costly and time-consuming vulnerability patching, prompting them to look for other options. "NXP's microcontrollers power devices that will work as the mission-critical backbone of entire industries and cities. We are thrilled to be collaborating with NXP to secure the future of digital transformation and ensure zero-trust from device to cloud. Our products offer companies a unique degree of protection against the most dangerous attack types, and significantly reduce the cost of security-related maintenance, and we are excited to see them used to promote innovation on a global scale." Natali Tshuva, CEO and Co-Founder of Sternum Sternum's universal IoT platform ushers in a new era in which whole fleets of connected devices may be fully secure and viewable at the edge in a simple, seamless, and self-contained manner. The patented technology is designed to detect the general fingerprints of different attack exploitations, including command injection and buffer overflow attacks, and neutralize them in real-time, preserving the device's runtime integrity against zero-day and one-day attacks. This method provides total protection against a wide range of CWEs (Common Weakness Enumeration) and promotes a proactive IoT security paradigm that eliminates the need to play catch-up with hackers through expensive reactive patching.
