Enhance the customer experience and maintain a secure, compliant xIoT environment

With the proliferation of smart devices and connected technologies in the retail and hospitality sectors, businesses are increasingly integrating xTended Internet of Things (xIoT) devices to enhance customer experiences and streamline operations. However, these devices, ranging from connected point-of-sale systems to smart hotel room controls, contribute to an ever-increasing attack surface.

The Current Landscape

0 %
of IoT devices in retail and hospitality environments are deployed with default credentials.
0 %
increase in xIoT malware attacks
~ 0 %
of connected devices like payment terminals and HVAC systems are vulnerable to cyber-attacks due to insecure configurations and unpatched firmware.
0 %
of businesses are unable to identify a majority of their IoT and OT devices.
0 %
of xIoT devices are end-of-life and no longer supported.

The Challenge

Retail and hospitality businesses must be able to identify all their connected devices, from POS terminals, printers, and Building Management Systems to IP cameras and door controllers, and secure them – efficiently and at scale – against the most significant IoT and OT device vulnerabilities, including:
Unknown Asset Inventory

Default Credentials

Out-of-Date and Vulnerable Firmware

Risky Configurations

Banned and End-of-Life Devices

Expired of Self-signed Certificates
