At NeroTeam Security Labs, our mission is to fortify IoT devices, establishing trust in your brand. We meticulously assess diverse IoT products, including routers, cameras, switches, and more, unveiling previously unseen vulnerabilities—commonly known as zero-days. Since 2022, our team has successfully identified over 40 such vulnerabilities.

We go beyond identification, actively assisting developers in remediating these zero-day vulnerabilities. Our comprehensive recommendations ensure long-term product security, considering various attacker perspectives.

As a trusted entity, we prioritize consumer and organizational integrity. Any information discovered remains confidential, shared solely between your organization and our team. Upholding confidentiality and trust is fundamental to our success in reporting and remediating vulnerabilities.

Understanding IoT Device Vulnerabilities

Discover why IoT devices often face security challenges. The primary issue lies in their lack of built-in security controls to combat modern threats. This vulnerability stems from the constrained environment and limited computational capacity of these low-power devices. Their features only permit specific functions, making it challenging to include robust security controls, mechanisms, and data protection schemes.

Top IoT Threats: Evolution and Sophistication

IoT threats are continually evolving, leveraging sophisticated and evasive techniques, such as peer-to-peer command and control communications and worm-like features for self-propagation. Weak device security and network security posture further amplify the risks, providing attackers with numerous avenues to compromise IoT systems.

Our findings reveal that the myriad vulnerabilities in IoT devices not only make them susceptible to initial compromise but also serve as a pivotal stepping stone for lateral movement, enabling attackers to target other systems within the network.
