TRUSTED TELEMETRY Extend device management to untrusted embedded devices, including medical instruments and consumer wearables As connected devices proliferate throughout Health Care Providers like hospitals, clinics, diagnostic services, etc. medical IT departments are challenged to manage, monitor and constrain the devices to ensure prescribed operation and provide the necessary patient safety. This is especially difficult for medical devices that are based on embedded processors and operating systems where they may not support standard SIEM agents or data collection protocols. Even AI-augmented 'behavioural' SIEM systems are challenged by the scale of IoMT deployment. Medical Device Manufacturers (MDM) are encouraged by the FDA to address cybersecurity risks in their medical products, post sales, after deployment. Manage the proliferation of connected devices in HDOs Irdeto's Trusted Telemetry features a small, portable agent well suited to extend security coverage even to tiny microprocessor and RTOS based systems. Critical security events are passed by default in the protected telemetry packets and agent APIs make it easy to add additional system or application level data as required. Having robust, reliable security telemetry data can help SIEM systems scale to accommodate the massive increase in connected devices that we are experiencing today. Qualified, integrity verified telemetry data can also unburden cognitive/AI based systems since no deductions or complicated forensics are required. Trusted Telemetry provides near real-time detection of device exploits for timely containment. Better FDA compliance FDA has important Quality System regulation (21 CFR part 806) recommendations outlined in the 2016 document "Postmarket Management of Cybersecurity in Medical Devices." This document "emphasizes that manufacturers should monitor, identify, and address cybersecurity vulnerabilities and exploits as part of their postmarket management of medical devices." Trusted Telemetry provides indications of device integrity, revision level, suspicious libraries & activities as well as other cybersecurity events of interest like device attachments and output devices available that can support FDA's guidance and compliance reporting. KEY BENEFITS Near real-time detection of exploits • Extends trust to untrusted devices (devices deployed in a hostile environment, like consumer wearable instruments, portable/mobile devices with medical apps, etc.) • Produces trusted logs for critical security events • Near real-time detection of exploits • Supports a broad range of robust, integrity verified telemetry • Supports a multi-layer security-in-depth philosophy which reduces dependence on fallible perimeter security • Leverages the renowned Irdeto anti-hacking technologies in a simple, easy-to-deploy fashion Trusted / robust security telemetry • Provides both system and application level telemetry data (see over) • Produces reliable critical security events, like: • Integrity Verification (detect tampering) • Hooking detection • Jailbreak / rooting detection • Privilege escalation • Easy API to extend protections to device apps and for apps to produce proprietary telemetry Server plays well with others • Telemetry server provided to process messages, store and forward events • Containerized server for easy deployment • Available as part of Irdeto Software Services or separately • Seamless integration with popular SIEM systems like IBM's QRadar Agent provides broad device coverage • Portable C code for broadest possible device coverage • Small size (footprint) • Simplified OS abstraction layer for easy porting • Pre-integrations for several popular embedded OS (Inquire about rollout) • iOS, Linux, FreeRTOS • Android, Wear OS, VxWorks, uCOS, ThreadX, in future (inquire)
