10 steps to help secure your IoT/M2M applications

Important Security Information

With the ever-present threat of fraud to the IoT, we’ve put together a simple guide to help you keep your IoT applications secure.

These 10 steps will help minimise your risk against some of the most common techniques used by cyber criminals.

Securing your device

Always immediately change the default password of your device/router.

Use the latest version of firmware from your hardware manufacturer.

Consider securing your device with a firewall.

Ensure that your devices are not tampered with. Contact us to discuss our solutions further.

 

Securing your SIM

Bar/block any services that you don’t need using our SIM Management platform, SIMPro – for example SMS or roaming.*

Consider IMEI locking services to ensure that your SIM is associated with the appropriate device.** Contact us to discuss further.

 

Manage and monitor your services

Actively manage user profiles for your SIMPro account to ensure that users have the correct access rights.

Closely monitor usage by setting up SIMPro alerts and ensure that you review your bill every month.

 

Overlay private APN services

Consider encrypted Virtual Private Network (VPN) solutions, static IPs and direct interconnects.

Consider outbound IP whitelisting to ensure that data traffic can only be sent to defined end points.

 

Following these steps does not guarantee security for your applications, but they will minimise your risk.

If you notice any suspicious activity, or would like to discuss any of our services, call 0330 056 3300.
