BullGuard Launches Security Scanner for IoT

BullGuard has launched BullGuard IoT Scanner, which reveals connected devices that could be vulnerable to hackers. BullGuard IoT Scanner allows anyone to scan to see if their smart devices or network are accessible to hackers. If a user's smart device is flagged as being vulnerable, details about the specific security issues are provided. BullGuard's IoT Scanner uses data from Shodan.io, the first search engine for internet connected devices, to scan for vulnerable smart devices and presents results in a straightforward way that anyone can understand. This includes security cameras, baby monitors, Smart TVs and wearables that may be visible to hackers. If accessible devices are found, they are flagged along with details of potential vulnerabilities. An email report of scan results can help to diagnose problems further, and users can share notification of successful scans with friends and family to encourage them to protect their own smart devices.
