Runtime
Protection

Secure your code and third-party libraries with agentless runtime security for IoT, powered by our patented EIV™ embedded integrity verification software technologies.

Runtime Protection

96.5%

Prevention in industry benchmark tests for memory vulnerabilities

Up to 60%

Less Patching with active mitigation of known and zero-day vulnerabilities

Only 1-3%

Overhead via agentless integration purpose-made for IoT devices

Adaptive On-device Protection

Our unique EIV™ software technologies are the first to introduce adaptive XDR/RASP-like protection for embedded devices. Leveraging binary instrumentation, it categorically prevents all code and memory manipulation attempts and assures system integrity at all times.

Mitigation of Known and Future Threats

EIV™ software technologies provide blanket protection from all major threats, including MITRE’s ‘Top 25 Most Dangerous Software Weaknesses’ in scope for IoT – command injections, execution flow manipulations, buffer overflows, and more. 

EIV™ software technologies’ deterministic security model makes it equally effective for keeping devices safe from future threats, 0-day and 1-day mitigation, and reducing cost of security patching.

Customer Story

Detect 0-day Vulnerabilities in Preproduction

Customer Story

A Fortune 500 engaged Sternum for POC, during which Sternum’s runtime protection was integrated into the development process.

Almost immediately, by profiling their firmware in runtime, the team was able to discover four security bugs, including potential memory information leaks and corruption vulnerabilities.

By addressing these bugs pre-market, the company was to resolve issues with relative ease, avoid patching in the field, and prevent future risks to device users.

Mitigation of Known and Future Threats

Detailed Attack Forensics

For each mitigated attack, our platform provides you with all of the contexts you need to conduct a detailed root cause analysis and address the issue at the source. 

Access to this information also helps make security tangible for your end users, facilitating customer trust and acting as a unique differentiator for your product.

Software Supply Chain Protection

Software supply chain vulnerabilities are among the most common threat vectors. EIV™ software technologies eliminate this risk by securing all running code, including third-party libraries used for communication, encryption, authentication, OTA updates, and other device functions.

Software Supply Chain Protection

Continuous Security Monitoring

Sternum provides you with constant real-time information on cyber threats and intelligence on suspicious behaviors, security weak spots, and other indicators of attack and compromise (IoA and IoC). This security information is sourced to your SOC, SIEM or SOAR  – or analyzed using Sternum’s own interactive dashboards.
