We continue to see security threats affecting IoT devices. In this recent Ars Technica article, they share that a lot of these devices are exposed because they are built with old TCP/IP network stacks that use old security paradigms. That’s one of the risks in using open-source code. And the risks are really serious – opening back-doors in otherwise secure networks for all sorts of nefarious activity.
We want to remind people that such attacks aren’t possible on Teleporte-controlled locks.
- No TCP/IP stack – we aren’t vulnerable to this specific attack because we don’t use the Internet Protocol
- No open-source code – we have designed and implemented ALL embedded code in-house (Canada)
- No connectivity to customer networks – there’s no way to open a back door into your network when our devices aren’t even on the network.
You can continue to rely on Teleporte‘s security because, from the start, we’ve incorporated a security-first approach. While IoT risks in the world are some of the most serious and difficult ones, they don’t have to be if the systems are designed with security in mind.
Trust in us, as security is our #1 focus, and we’ll continue to deliver secure solutions to the market.
