VDOO and CCDS to Promote Awareness of Device Security in Japan With Free Risk Assessments

The joint goal of CCDS and VDOO is to ensure all connected (IoT) devices are safe and secure

19 June 2020 / Tokyo – VDOO Connected Trust Ltd., provider of the leading integrated device security platform, today announced that they have partnered with the Connected Consumer Device Security Council (CCDS) to promote the security of connected devices in Japan, especially those intended for consumer use.  

VDOO fully agrees with the CCDS mission which is to ensure that connected consumer devices are safe and secure, avoiding unexpected device behavior which could risk people’s lives, finances and property. Based in VDOO’s extensive experience in ensuring the security of connected devices, it will support this mission through the use of its breakthrough device security risk assessment and protection technology.  

VDOO will provide a free security risk assessment service to Japanese device manufacturers, whether or not they are members of CCDS. After they apply on the CCDS site and upload their device’s firmware, they will very quickly receive their free risk assessment report which provides high-level insights into their device’s security profile including its overall threat level, the potential impact of unresolved security exposures, the number of CVEs, and more. The service also statically checks whether the device software is in accordance with the CCDS common IoT security requirements, although it does not directly enable a company to receive CCDS certification. 

The free risk analysis service, which will be offered starting Q3 2020, is based on the VDOO Vision solution which performs automated device security analysis and risk assessments, and provides comprehensive coverage of known and potential security issues, including for third party components, with device-aware issue prioritization and detailed guidance that help quickly fix any security gaps.

“We are very pleased to be working with the CCDS organization in attaining the goal of ensuring that each and every Japanese consumer can rest assured that the connected devices they are using at home are safe and secure,” said Nati Davidi, CEO at VDOO. “Considering the rapid increase in the number of connected consumer devices in Japan and across the world, we are offering a timely service to the local manufacturing industry in the hope of working with them to secure all consumer devices.”

“Threats on IoT devices and services are spreading. Manufacturers need to know the vulnerabilities in their devices more than ever before. In addition, it is becoming difficult to keep track of all the open source software versions that devices are using. CCDS welcomes VDOO to provide a free security risk assessment service to Japanese manufacturers,” said Tsukasa Ogino, Representative Director at CCDS.
