Our Approach to Protecting IoT Devices and Deployments

Security in IoT is critical, especially for industries where interference from hostile parties can have severe consequences. Robust security capabilities are essential for preventing breaches and ensuring data integrity. IoT Connect offers a highly secure infrastructure with virtual private networks and additional services to ensure maximum security.

Network Security

IoT Connect provides advanced network security features such as firewalls, intrusion detection and prevention, and denial of service (DoS) protection to safeguard IoT devices against cyber-attacks.

Authentication and Access Control

IoT Connect offers robust authentication and access control mechanisms to ensure that only authorized users have access to IoT devices and data.

Secure Data Transfer

IoT Connect offers secure data transfer through end-to-end encryption, ensuring that data is protected throughout the entire IoT ecosystem.

Connect and Monitor IoT Devices

IoT Connect provides secure connectivity for IoT devices, including remote monitoring and management. We use VPNs and APNs to establish secure connections between your data center and the Telenor IoT platform. We also offer black and whitelisting to provide maximum control over your network traffic. Our remote access self-service portal enables you to manage access rights to deployed IoT devices, administer user groups, and manage other related policies. We offer device security monitoring through our Service Operations Centre, providing proactive and robust defense against cyber-attacks. These steps give enterprise customers peace of mind to focus on their core business activities.

Compliance and Certification

Security by Design

At Telenor IoT, our solutions and services are fully compliant with the latest requirements of GDPR and ISO 27001, ensuring that your data is protected, and your organization meets the latest legal regulations. We utilize the expertise of Telenor Group’s large security and architecture team to provide security by design.

Fraud Detection

Our fraud detection experience equips us with the capabilities necessary to uncover fraud quickly and take preventative steps. We spot anomalies, recognize the early signs of common frauds, and act to protect your devices and customers.

Round the Clock Support

We have more than two decades of experience in providing IoT connectivity, giving us a unique view into the network. Our dedicated support team offers round-the-clock support, protecting your IoT deployments and providing an early warning system to stop attacks before they occur.

We take a proactive approach to identify and prevent vulnerabilities and breaches in all deployments with our defensible architecture and risk monitoring system. Mats Lundquist CEO, Telenor Connexion and Head of Telenor IoT

Securing your IoT Devices with IoT Authentication

IoT authentication is a vital aspect of securing your IoT devices. Through IoT Connect, we offer several features and policies that can help you connect and monitor your IoT devices while ensuring maximum security.

VPN for IoT Devices

Our platform provides a secure connection through Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) between your data center and the Telenor IoT platform. We offer VPN tunnels that can be set up in your data center, or you can choose a Telenor IoT router that is ready to be plugged in. Our platform is interconnected across our core network, ensuring geographical redundancy.

APN for IoT Devices

The Access Point Name (APN) establishes a connection between a device on a mobile network and the internet or a customer network. We provide three APN types that include different security and customization options. By default, devices on an APN are prohibited from communicating directly with each other, to prevent a malicious device from disturbing or infecting other devices on the same APN.

Remote Access Self-Service Portal

Our remote access self-service portal enables you to manage access rights to deployed IoT devices, administer user groups, and manage other related policies. The primary function is to enable a secure communication path towards the SIMs. The portal facilitates the management of credentials, allowing you to set up remote access users who can establish two-way communications to their securely deployed IoT devices behind APN and VPNs via their internet-enabled devices.

Secure Your IoT Environment with our Robust Security Policies and Practices

Black and Whitelisting

Our roaming steering tool for networks allows you to blacklist sources of security threats while whitelisting other traffic, providing maximum control over your network traffic.

Monitor IoT Devices behind NAT and Firewalls

Our platform offers Network Address Translation (NAT) and firewalls as essential security measures to protect your devices and networks. NAT hides the IP addresses of your devices behind a single public IP address, preventing outsiders from directly accessing or attacking them. Firewalls act as a barrier between the external network and the internal network, blocking any unauthorized traffic from reaching your devices or network. Our firewalls are configured with strict security policies, allowing only specific types of traffic and blocking known malicious IP addresses to prevent potential security breaches.

MS2MS (Machine-to-Machine Services)

MS2MS offers enhanced security features, such as encryption and authentication protocols, to protect data and ensure that it is only accessible to authorized parties. This is particularly important for businesses dealing with sensitive information or operating in highly regulated industries.
