Quote:Kaspersky IoT Scanner is a free application for the Android platform that scans the home Wi-Fi network, informs the user about the devices connected to it and shows their level of security

Kaspersky Lab has launched a beta version of the solution for protecting the smart home and Internet devices of things called Kaspersky IoT Scanner .

The popularity of Internet devices of things is constantly growing, so cybercriminals are eagerly looking for ways to take advantage of this trend. Instead of making life easier for their owners, smart devices are increasingly becoming a weak link in the security infrastructure.

According to Gartner , currently over six billion IoT devices are in use worldwide, and many of them have already become victims of cybercriminals. For example, last year the world was shocked by the wave of DDoS attacks launched by the botanet Mirai. Mirai exploited the popular vulnerabilities in IoT devices to infect and turn them into botnet cells. "Kaspersky Lab" has developed a solution that helps reduce these risks.

Kaspersky IoT Scanner automatically identifies smart devices such as Wi-Fi routers, IP cameras, smart TVs, Wi-Fi printers, NAS network storage devices, media servers and game consoles, as well as computers, tablets or smartphones on the home network . The solution remembers them and notifies the user when any new or familiar device connects to the network or disconnects from it. This allows the user to always be aware of what is happening to the home network.
