Internet of Things (IoT) Security Testing

In today’s connected world, the perception of security risk alone, even if not realized, can still negatively impact consumer confidence necessary for new technologies to meet their full market potential. Recent, high-profile data breaches have heightened consumers’ awareness of data security and privacy issues. As a result, consumer adoption may suffer until vendors can adequately address security and privacy concerns.


Full coverage Internet of Things (IoT) security testing services to help your organization better deliver secure connected products to the market.

Elevate’s Internet of Things assurance services take a holistic approach to security testing by reviewing the entire product ecosystem, from chip to code, while prioritizing vulnerabilities so you can successfully balance risk with time-to-market pressures.

Embedded Device Testing

Elevate engineers will conduct an in-depth security assessment to identify physical and logical security threats to the embedded system, such as local controllers/gateways, and determine risk at the device level of an Internet of Things ecosystem to help your organization establish appropriate mitigations.

Firmware Security Assessments

Elevate engineers will analyze the security of device firmware and its update distribution process to ensure security best practices have been implemented, such as cryptographically signing firmware updates and using authentication capabilities in hardware devices to verify signatures.

Wireless Security Assessments

Elevate’s holistic approach to Internet of Things security testing includes an assessment of the wireless protocols used for local device communication, such as ZigBee, 6LoWPAN, and Bluetooth LE, to ensure proper implementation and security best practices.

Application Security Testing

The overall goal of web and mobile application security testing is to uncover software vulnerabilities, demonstrate the impact of weaknesses, and provide recommendations for mitigation. Our team delivers assurance through a detailed and in-depth security analysis of the critical applications driving your Internet of Things product ecosystem.

Cloud Services Assurance

Elevate engineers will perform a security assessment on external cloud services and RESTful APIs used to exchange data with Internet of Things networks, applications, devices, and sensors. Vulnerabilities are identified, and if desired, exploited during a penetration test.

Infrastructure Security Testing

Elevate engineers will remotely identify the networks, hosts, and services that comprise the supporting network infrastructure of your Internet of Things product ecosystem. Vulnerabilities are identified, and if desired, exploited during a penetration test.
