Cybersecurity for routers, gateways, and switches
From the infamous Mirai to more recent campaigns, such as VPNFilter and BCMUPnP_Hunter, cybercriminals have always found network devices as a platform to launch attacks. Pressure for better security is mounting from regulators and consumers, enterprise and private alike, as disfavoring statistics, such as ACI’s statement that 83%
of routers have vulnerabilities, continue to be revealed. Risks like these not only pose threats to users but also make device developers liable, damaging their reputation and shareholder equity.
