When considering topic targets in enterprise networks, it’s easy to forget IoT devices. After all, traditional network security focuses on protecting endpoints, desktop computers and laptops from cybercriminals. IoT devices are often difficult to manage, with limited vulnerability.
Yet, an increasing number of providers are trying to simplify the process of managing devices at the network’s edge. One such provider is IoTOps platform SecuriThings, which today announced it has raised $21 million as part of a series B funding round led by U.S. Venture Partners (USVP), bringing its total funding raised to $39 million.
SecuriThings IoTOps platform provides real-time visibility over IoT devices, leveraging machine learning (ML) to detect and mitigate threats at the endpoint level. It also helps to conduct predictive maintenance and provides access to threat response capabilities as a service from a remote security operations center (SOC) team.
As a security framework, this IoTOps-based approach can centralize monitoring devices located at the network’s edge, which have traditionally remained opaque and difficult to manage.

Securing the network’s edge
SecuriThings’ announcement comes as IoT adoption continues to grow, with the number of global IoT connections increased by 8% in 2021 to 12.2 billion active endpoints, with researchers expecting they will increase by 18% to a total of 14.4 billion active connections in 2022.
“Most enterprises have hundreds to many thousands of physical security devices to protect their people, properly and IP, as well as to comply with legal and regulatory requirements,” said Roy Dagan, CEO of SecuriThings. The volume and complexity of managing all these devices is incredibly challenging.”
By turning to IoTOps, organizations can centralize the management of IoT devices and enhance the visibility of potential exploits and vulnerabilities at the network’s edge.
