    The IoT device presence widens an organization’s security boundaries and opens the door for possible cyber-attacks on individual devices that can spread dangerous software between its peers and serve as an entry point to the backend of their secured perimeter. This is only one of many types of attacks that have been enabled by the IoT’s technological advancement. When it comes to management of numerous devices, there is a clear need for advanced cyber threat intelligence that can identify the current device vulnerabilities as well as provide alerts about potential threats or unwanted device software modifications that may be discovered. These functionalities need to include the capability to immediately inform the company's security department. In some cases, the threat needs to be quickly extracted from remote end points for further analysis in a controlled environment and then dealt with. These processes need to happen at scale so they can support massive groups of devices in multiple geographical locations.
