Newly Discovered Threats Pose a Huge Risk
No Zero-Day Protection for IoT
While other IT assets are equipped with means to guard against zero-day threats, IoT lags behind, still missing proactive mitigation solutions like on-device (e.g., XDR) or in-code (e.g., RASP) defense mechanisms.
Patching is Costly and Ineffective
Device manufacturers still rely primarily on security patches for zero-day threats. However, this reactive approach undermines the defenders' initiative, falls short in effectively addressing the risks, and imposes significant financial burdens on the business.
Vulnerabilities in Third-Party Software
Third-party code plays a vital role in functions like comms, authentication, and encryption. Unfortunately, it also becomes a breeding ground for zero-day vulnerabilities. Device makers, however, lack the capability to tackle issues in third-party software, resulting in devices being exposed to a wide array of threats.
Active Zero-Day Mitigation
Protect from Zero-day IoT Attacks
Sternum protects from both known and unknown threats by actively blocking exploitation attempts at runtime. The platform provides a self-correcting, fully autonomous IoT security solution that is your shield against zero-days.
Cut Down on Patchwork and Cost
Sternum's deterministic protection ensures protection against unknown threats, significantly reducing the need for security patching. This not only saves substantial annual costs but also improves customer satisfaction and product quality, enabling to align patches with regular release cycles.
Software Supply-Chain Protection
Our EIV™ technology uses binary instrumentation to provides protection across all running code, including third-party binaries and OS libraries. This eliminates the threat of supply chain attacks, including exploits of zero-day vulnerabilities in third-party software.
“Sternum’s solution saves us time, manpower, and money. Being able to lean on Sternum as an active mitigation is a game changer and the data insights help us build better products and make better decisions.”
Product Security Director at Medtronic
“Sternum enhances Zephyr’s built-in security features by providing embedded developers and device manufacturers with additional runtime protection and monitoring capabilities, which they can implement with minimal complexity and zero performance compromises.”
VP, Dependable Embedded Systems at the Linux Foundation
“All attacks NXP crafted were blocked by Sternum with CPU overhead of less than 3%. Sternum’s ability to successfully addresses runtime attacks is a valuable addition to many of NXP products.”
Senior Security System Architect and Fellow at NXP Semiconductors
“We were searching for a solution that delivered advanced security and monitoring capabilities. Sternum provided us exactly with what we needed, all with an effortless integration and without any negative impact on performance.”
Head of Product at Vibrant
“We have long admired Sternum, for its unique ability to provide remote analysis of firmware runtime. Access to this technology improves our IoT offering and helps our partners deliver more reliable and competitive IoT products and services.”
CEO and co-founder at HARDWARIO
“Seamless baked-in security with none of the added investment or complexity. Sternum alerts users to any attempt to compromise one of their deployed devices, providing early security intelligence.”
