Mikko Hyppönen talks about F-Secure SENSE and securing the IoT | TNW Conference 2017


But while we have a billion new devices getting online, we cannot rely on the manufacturers alone, because most of the manufacturers aren’t doing this. We’re seeing big problems with the security of IoT devices and we will not be able to defend them the same way we defend our computers, because you will not be able to install an endpoint security solution on your toaster. I work for an antivirus company, I promise you, we will never be making F-Secure antivirus for toasters. We wont do that. So if you can’t secure them from the device itself, you only really have one solution left which is that you have to secure them from the network. So how do you do that? Well, the solution we have, and which some other vendors are planning as well, is building a new hardware device. This is our device, it’s called SENSE. And the idea is that every home will have one. It creates a secure Wi-Fi network, a separate network for your IoT devices. You have your existing network for your
computers and phones, and this is where you connect your smart TVs and washing machines. And then it’s gonna secure them from the network. This, we think, is the future of IoT security. We have plenty of problems ahead of us, so we need plenty of solutions. Thank you very much.
