Cradlepoint introduces Zero Trust Solution for cellular IoT deployments  

Cradlepoint has launched the S700, a multipurpose IoT router designed to provide a zero trust security service to enterprise customers. Coupled with Cradlepoint NetCloud Exchange Secure Connect, the S700 provides a cloud-managed network solution to safeguard IoT devices.

The S700 and NetCloud Exchange delivers a zero trust solution for IoT that removes deployment complexity and is suited for enterprise lean IT scenarios. Key benefits include:

  • Connect-and-go Zero Trust: Any IoT device connected to the router is immediately dark to public scans and other internal sites. Access policies are easily defined so IoT devices communicate only with their authorised resources on a least-privilege basis.
  • Efficient WAN creation: The S700 removes deployment and management complexity and easily builds effective zero trust encrypted tunnels over cellular and wired links.
  • Small router with big security: IoT devices connected to a small router can still have access to full modern security services including zero trust. The S700 adds simplicity by offloading the security processes to a services gateway, which holds the security policies, manages router updates (including security patches), and orchestrates processes.
  • Third-party access protection: Over 60% of WANs are now serving outside customers and suppliers, so protecting third-party access to IoT equipment has broad implications. With the Cradlepoint solution, fine-grained policies can be added to the zero-trust services gateway allowing third-party access to all or part of the management system of an IoT device behind the Cradlepoint router.

As a multipurpose IoT router designed for the enterprise, the S700 connects light industrial, smart city, IoT and portable devices over cellular, Wi-Fi and wired links. Offering a wide variety of connectivity options through LTE, two Gigabit Ethernet ports for wired connections and dual band Wi-Fi 6 options, the S700 also adds advanced features, such as active GNSS/GPS for asset tracking, GPIO pins to control and monitor external sensors.
