ISMG’s Virtual Roundtables focus on specific challenges being faced by information security executives in today’s cybersecurity landscape. Moderated by one of ISMG’s Executive Editors and a guest industry expert, Virtual Roundtables give cybersecurity professionals the opportunity to discuss threats and controls with a handful of market leaders in an informal and online setting, from which you will emerge with new ideas and solutions you can immediately put to work to improve your own organization’s defensive posture.
Undetected & Unprotected: The Massive Problem of Securing IoT and Unmanaged Devices
Tom Field – SVP – Editorial, ISMG / Greg Murphy – President & CEO, Ordr
Quick: How many IoT and unmanaged devices touch your network today? Can you even begin to estimate?
In 2019, Gartner predicted there would be 5.8 billion such IoT endpoints by the end of 2020 – and that estimate was made pre-pandemic. This did not account for accelerated digital transformation, the corresponding surge in devices being used to address COVID-19 and new personal devices in work-from-home environments.
So, in today’s unplanned environment… do you have visibility into the IoT and unmanaged devices touching your network? Do you understand how these devices are deployed and where they are inherently vulnerable? How are these devices being vetted and secured when introduced to your environment? How are adversaries even now taking advantage of this expanding attack surface?
Please join ISMG’s Tom Field for an exclusive Virtual Roundtable that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering thoughts on how to secure IoT and unmanaged devices.
Discussion topics will include:
- How do you inventory IoT and unmanaged devices touching your network?
- Who assesses the vulnerabilities of these devices and the risks they pose?
- How are these devices vetted and secured when introduced?
- How are adversaries exploiting this new and expanding attack surface?
Joining Tom to provide expert insight and case studies is Greg Murphy, President and CEO at Ordr.

About the Sponsor
Ordr. In the hyper-connected enterprise, in which everything from simple IoT devices to complex multi-million-dollar systems are connected, traditional security solutions simply cannot scale. Ordr solves this problem, providing enterprises with complete visibility and exhaustive control over every unmanaged device – IoT, IoMT and OT. The Ordr Systems Control Engine is the only purpose-built solution to discover and classify all devices, fully profile device behavior and risks at massive scale, and automate a variety of actions. Ordr is unique in its ability to automatically generate policies that enable only “sanctioned” device communications, and enforce policies for every class of device directly through the organization’s network and security infrastructure.
