“Healthy networks are large, and will grow and change rapidly,” said Mike Lloyd, CTO at the security firm RedSeal. “Human effort won’t scale – there are too many threats, too many changes, and too many network interactions.”

The Internet of Things (IoT), made up of special-purpose devices designed to do a particular job well, presents a significant problem for security professionals. Several of their traditional approaches to security won’t work. Fortunately, it’s not all doom and gloom. We can use a three-step strategy for dealing with security and IoT.
First, we need to understand the nature of the IoT problem. Second, we need to invest effort in finding IoT endpoints and enumerating their weaknesses. And third, having found them, we need to look at them in the context of our own organization, our network, and our risk tolerance, so that we can clearly identify appropriate controls.

How can you tell that cyber insurance is a hot topic today? When lawyers find the amounts of money involved worth fighting over. Major cases are emerging of serious disputes between multi-nationals and the companies they’ve taken out policies with to help mitigate their risk exposure. On the one hand, this is partly to be expected of such a nascent sector. Yet it may also be a sign of a deeper problem: a lack of visibility into which security controls and policies actually reduce risk and therefore need to be mandated as part of a policy.
I’m delighted with the deal RedSeal just announced with STG. I’ve worked in several start-ups — from the earliest stage, when the whole company could share a single elevator, all the way through acquisition by huge global corporations. My favorite times are when we’re all actively engaged with customers and the company has a sense of purpose and momentum. This is one of those times.
My feeling that this is a rite of passage – like leaving college – is because we’re moving from the category “VC-backed startup” into “privately-held serious company.” Startups are like children – energetic, exciting, and allowed to get away with things. We expect more of grownups, that they can move forward, create and meet goals. It’s challenging, but it’s also fundamentally empowering, and I’m proud to move on to this next stage.
We’ve also chosen a true partner in STG, and they have chosen us. I may be stretching an analogy, but I’m pleased to say that we’ve dated long enough to learn that we see eye to eye. We agree about the potential for growth and are excited about working together towards a common vision. RedSeal, now with STG’s support, will be able to grow, innovate and deliver digital resilience to more and more customers, while we all continue to enjoy what we do. Each day is better than the last.
