Take our IoT Security Survey for a chance to win $50

The penetration of the IoT (Internet of Things) into our personal and professional lives is continuing to grow at an incredible pace. The benefits are numerous, but there are also risks, with the biggest risk being security. All of these devices increase the attack surface and present new opportunities for hackers to invade our lives.

Trustlook is looking to gather additional information and feedback on what impact the IoT has had on consumers, and how consumers are approaching security with these new devices.

We would greatly appreciate you taking the time to answer a few short questions regarding your IoT experience. Your feedback is important to us. By taking the survey, you will be eligible to win a $50 Amazon.com Gift Card. The winner will be selected on 9/17/17.

We thank you in advance for your feedback. You can take the survey here.

Is Your Ransomware Security Solution SAFE?

Ransomware security solutions claim to be many things. Some claim to be fast. Some say they include artificial intelligence (AI). Some point out their accuracy. And others try to illustrate their effectiveness. But only one ransomware security solution can check all the boxes. Only one is smart, accurate, fast, and effective. Only one is, shall we say, SAFE. It’s Trustlook SECUREai Core Ransomware. Let’s look further.

It’s Smart
Trustlook’s proprietary AI engine is built on an advanced machine learning foundation that is constantly improving. Millions of data points have been analyzed to build this intelligent engine.

It’s Accurate
Trustlook’s ransomware detection rates are consistently over 99%, with extremely low false positives of less than 1%.

It’s Fast
Trustlook’s ransomware detection engine processes dozens of files per second, without weighing down the network.

It’s Effective
Trustlook blocks new ransomware threats before files and data are encrypted. Threats are blocked in real-time, eliminating the cost and disruption associated with tackling threats after they’ve already penetrated the network.

Don’t settle for an average ransomware security solution. Ransomware has been identified as the biggest cyber threat of 2017 by the U.S. Department of Justice, and is expected to cost businesses and individuals millions in the coming years.

Trustlook’s ransomware detection is built into its SECUREai Core platform. SECUREai Core provides an additional layer of protection for network appliance makers and cloud service providers. To learn more about Trustlook’s ransomware solution please visit http://www.trustlook.com.

Could the Amazon Echo hack have been prevented with proper IoT security?

IoT devices are becoming more popular in homes, and so too are these devices’ security vulnerabilities. The latest concerning example is the hack of the Amazon Echo, the smart speaker capable of voice interaction, music playback, making to-do lists, setting alarms, streaming podcasts, and more.

The hack, which works by gaining root access to a vulnerable Echo and adding commands that secretly capture the raw microphone input and send it to an attacker-controlled computer, shows just how vulnerable consumers can be in the privacy of their own home. Moreover, it highlights the need for consumers to remain vigilant about the products they install, and for IoT developers to have more rigid security assessments of the smart devices they develop.

It’s clear from the Amazon Echo hack, as well as from past IoT security incidents such as Stuxnet and the Target data breach, that all the network and perimeter-based security mechanisms in the world are no match for human error (i.e. phishing) or “evil-maid” attacks, in which a device can be compromised because there is physical access to it. Devices need an additional layer of security that monitors behaviors inside the device.

Enter Trustlook SECUREai IoT – The Guard Inside the Castle
Trustlook SECUREai IoT revolutionizes IoT security with a custom, embeddable engine built on artificial intelligence. SECUREai IoT is a device-behavior-based solution that detects threats that existing perimeter and network-based products fail to stop. SECUREai IoT works at the device level, so it protects an IoT device from the inside. Its device driver monitors hundreds of system calls and network resources to detect anomalies.

The solution assumes that an attacker already has root access, and monitors the device behavior that happens after root access. Because “root” is the starting point, SECUREai IoT can catch malicious activity that has made it past other forms of protection.

In the case of the Amazon Echo hack, SECUREai IoT would have quickly identified the raw microphone data streamed over TCP/IP to a remote service. It’s fine grain kernel-level monitoring of system calls, network and device resources can detect what is normal and abnormal operating behavior.

Trustlook’s Ransomware Detection Demo Impresses at Black Hat

San Jose, CA (July 28, 2017) — Trustlook, the leading provider of cyber security solutions powered by artificial intelligence, demonstrated its innovative ransomware detection technology to more than 100 show attendees at this week’s Black Hat security show in Las Vegas. Ransomware has been identified as the biggest cyber threat of 2017 by the U.S. Department of Justice, and is expected to cost businesses and individuals millions in the coming years.

Trustlook’s ransomware detection rates are consistently over 99%, with extremely low false positives. Trustlook’s proprietary AI engine learns and adapts in order to block new ransomware threats before files and data are encrypted. It processes dozens of files per second, without weighing down the network.

“Our goal is to stop ransomware before it becomes a problem,” said Allan Zhang, co-founder and CEO of Trustlook. “If files and data become encrypted, it’s usually too late to do anything.”

Trustlook’s ransomware detection is built into its SECUREai Core platform. SECUREai Core provides an additional layer of protection for network appliance makers and cloud service providers. Using industry-leading, artificial-intelligence powered scanning of traffic, files, and applications, Trustlook SECUREai Core protects against viruses, trojans, and spyware, in addition to ransomware. Threats are blocked in real-time, eliminating the cost and disruption associated with tackling threats after they’ve already penetrated the network.

“Artificial intelligence is a game changer for cyber security,” said Zhang. “It is nearly impossible for human researchers today to keep up with the rapidly changing threat landscape. Machine learning is the great equalizer to help the good guys stay ahead and take control.”
