New York-based IoT cybersecurity provider Firedome has integrated its real-time protection and response capabilities with the Microsoft Azure Security Center for IoT. The integration will create a dynamic, end-to-end cybersecurity solution tailored for IoT device manufacturers with the combined power of both solutions' AI-driven insights and cybersecurity capabilities. 

Firedome provides real-time, endpoint cybersecurity solution for IoT manufacturers, with broad detection, prevention and response capabilities and compatibility with all main IoT operating systems (Linux, FreeRTOS, Windows and Android). 

Azure Security Center for IoT is designed to extend customers' existing cybersecurity view to the span of their IoT products, for a panoramic view of all network resources and devices. With Microsoft Threat Intelligence for threat alerts and recommendations and easy integration with other device management tools, Azure Security Center aims to provide advanced security posture management. 

By integrating the two products, Firedome and Microsoft aim to provide real-time protection and response, with dual detection capabilities of both Microsoft Threat Intelligence and Firedome's machine learning, cloud-based AI engine. 

The combined solution provides dynamic, end-to-end cybersecurity protection tailored for IoT device manufacturers. This will enable customers to maximise threat awareness with both Microsoft Threat Intelligence and Firedome Detection and real-time threat resolution of both known and unknown (0-day) threats, without the need for manufacturer intervention. 

"We are proud and excited to join forces with Microsoft Azure Security Center for IoT," said Moti Shkolnik, Firedome's Co-founder and CEO. "Microsoft chose Firedome as one of its strategic IoT security partners. This is exciting news for IoT device manufacturers looking for advanced cybersecurity protection for their device base. Together, we can offer threat visibility, with both Microsoft Threat Intelligence and Firedome detection, and add Firedome's dynamic response capability to automatically block any detected threats." 

Michal Braverman-Blumenstyk, CTO and GM, Cloud and AI Security Division at Microsoft Corp. said, "We are pleased to partner with Firedome's Endpoint Protection solution to provide a solution for manufacturers who don't have a SOC team for their IoT installed device base. We view this collaboration as a way to enrich Microsoft Azure Security Center for IoT with new response capabilities and real-time IoT device protection to our manufacturer clients."
