Fridge mounts Cyberattack!

The idea that your fridge could mount a cyberattack and bring down chunks of the Internet seems like a rejected script from the IT Crowd. And yet it has already happened! The argument about protecting your system has now been turned on its head with remote devices being compromised and then being used as a mass platform to attack other systems.

Mobius has been arguing that the need for security in Internet of Things (IoT) is as great as it was with Machine to Machine (M2M) before it, if not greater. The idea that any device could sit on internet unprotected and it would be safe because it was mobile always seemed very odd to us.

Mobius are the only company that can run an entire end to end connection entirely off internet so this kind of attack couldn’t happen.

But there are other ways to protect your system that still means you have all the advantages of using Mobile and using the Internet but are still safe – from external attacks, from peer to peer attacks and even from SIM level Denial of Service (DofS) attacks.

Building such a system can be tailored to your requirements and might cost less than you think. A private network also boosts reliability and improves real time diagnostics. It makes the system better and safer. Why us? Mobius has got more experience of building these private mobile networks than the rest of the IoT MVNOs put together.
