Products and Services

VDOO offers an end-to-end IoT security platform that enables the identification of the right security requirements for each specific device, and provides IoT vendors with analysis tools, and guidance in implementing action items:
• Device-Focused Security Requirements – Through automatic classification and analysis of every aspect of the IoT device, VDOO creates a device-specific threat landscape and generate actionable security requirements.
• Security Gap Analysis – A comprehensive gap analysis allows us to determine the existing and missing security measures on the device and the immediate risks they pose.
• Security Implementation – Automatically generated guidelines provide practical and actionable implementation instructions, as well as the tools, services and partnerships that enforce security throughout the life cycle of the device, quickly, easily and cost effectively.
• Certification – At the completion of the process VDOO verifies the implementation and ensure the security of the device. They then provide a visual and digital seal to indicate the state of security to all other systems. They also implement a certification agent that enables post-deployment protection, via integration with other systems and proprietary agent capabilities.
