IoT Scanner Checks to See if Your Smart Devices are Vulnerable to Hackers
The scanner allows users to see if their smart devices or network are unsecured. Details will be provided if a user’s smart device is flagged as being vulnerable.
BullGuard's IoT Scanner uses data from Shodan.io, a search engine for Internet connected devices, to scan for vulnerable smart devices and present results in a user-friendly way. Devices include security cameras, baby monitors, Smart TVs and wearables. If accessible devices are found, an email report of scan results can be generated to help diagnose problems. Users can also share notifications of successful scans with friends and family.
BullGuard has also created a free, downloadable IoT guide for consumers containing information on Internet of Things security along with help and advice on how to ensure connected devices are not visible to hackers.
