11-12-2014 08:24 AM

Symantec is building a new security client designed specifically for embedded systems. We’ve taken the code base of our Critical System Protection client edition re-architected, feature enhanced and optimized it to run on embedded systems such as those used in industrial control systems, automotive, point of sale, healthcare and beyond.

We are inviting you to take part in our Symantec Embedded Security: Critical System Protection beta program beginning early December 2014. By participating in the beta program, you will be able to experience first hand the benefits of our new Internet of Things (IoT) product offering.

Key features in Symantec Embedded Security: Critical System Protection

Securing IoT devices: Symantec Embedded Security: Critical System Protection provides a signature-less policy-based approach to security for your terminals or embedded devices. Symantec Embedded Security: Critical System Protection provides a centralized management environment with an easy to use interface and with comprehensive out-of-the-box policies for complete system monitoring and protection for intrusion prevention and intrusion detection. A signature-less policy-based approach reduces emergency patching and minimizes patch-related downtime and IT expenses through proactive protection that does not require continuous updates.

Broad platform support: Symantec Embedded Security: Critical System Protection secures devices running a variety of platforms and operating systems. Apart from various Windows ,Linux and Embedded versions of these platforms, Symantec Embedded Security: Critical System Protection supports RTOS (Real-time operating systems) such as QNX, which is widely used in embedded devices, especially in automotive and healthcare verticals. With a broad platform support and features targeted towards standalone embedded systems, Symantec Embedded Security: Critical System Protection can help secure devices in industrial control systems, automotive, healthcare, finance, and retail sectors.

Modular: Symantec Embedded Security: Critical System Protection provides the option to install individual features as required. While installing the agent, you can install either IPS (Intrusion Prevention) or IDS (Intrusion Detection) or both. Selective deployment of IPS or IDS helps reduce the performance impact Critical System Protection has on the device. If you are installing Symantec Embedded Security: Critical System Protection for the first time, you can install IDS before installing IPS. IDS monitors important system and application files and registry entries, system and application logs, and other system data sources to detect and notify you when suspicious activity is occurring on your systems. Installing IDS first will let you observe how Symantec Embedded Security: Critical System Protection works before going for a full-fledged system hardening with IPS.

Software, policy, and config updates: Symantec Embedded Security: Critical System Protection provides the capability to update the software, policy and configurations on the agents without the need for a direct connectivity with the server. Agents can be updated using an over the air (OTA) channel on QNX in automobiles, or from a secure fileshare server (using FTPS) for Windows and Linux agents.

Managed and standalone agents: Symantec Embedded Security: Critical System Protection provides both managed and standalone agents. Standalone agents can be deployed on the devices which have minimal or no connectivity with the server
