Trend Micro Software Strengthens Security Cameras by Blocking 5 Million Attack Attempts

Trend Micro Incorporated has blocked 5 million attempted cyberattacks against IP cameras in just five months. Through its strategic partnership with VIVOTEK, Inc., a global leading IP security solution provider, Trend Micro’s IoT security solutions are embedded in globally deployed IP cameras to provide superior protection.

By analyzing data from 7,000 anonymously aggregated IP cameras, Trend Micro found that the IP-based surveillance industry is fighting massive cyberattacks, but few countermeasures have been taken by the majority. As a step to mitigate this risk, Trend Micro’s IoT Reputation Service is embedded in VIVOTEK IP cameras, resulting in the world’s first surveillance devices equipped with hosted IPS and brute force attack protection. The devices are also backed by the world’s largest cyber threat intelligence network, which provides more efficient protection against all known threats.

From Trend Micro’s analysis, 75 percent of all blocked cyberattack incidents were brute force login attempts. Compromised passwords can immediately lead to a breach of content, and opens the door for further system exploitation. Based on this aggregated security data, there is a clear pattern that malicious attackers are targeting IP surveillance devices with common malware, such as Mirai variants, as well as known system vulnerabilities.
