In 3 bullets, summarize why this product or service is different from the competition and deserves recognition:

Viakoo confronts the issue of managing outdated and insecure devices and IoT systems, shrinking the massive modern attack surface used for ransomware and data exfiltration of business devices, networks, applications, and private data.

Most of Viakoo’s remediation competitors only work with loosely coupled devices or manual processes that are difficult and slow to deploy. Viakoo separates themselves as their Action Platform enables vulnerability remediation for both loosely coupled and tightly coupled IoT devices to deliver what businesses need, all while quickly eliminating the cyber threat they represent.

Devices are constantly monitored for compliance and audit purposes, ensuring users are informed when failures occur. Overall, the Viakoo Action Platform allows users to master the security of their cyber-physical systems.

This is possible due to the use of an enterprise-class solution, delivering full device remediation, repatriation, and compliance. The platform not only provides 802.1x certificate provisioning and management, but firmware upgrading for security fixes, and password enforcement..
