Compliance Adherence

Determine whether third-party code is introducing legal and compliance issues.


Firmware Deep DiveMaintain XIoT Device Compliance

Extended Internet of Things (XIoT) devices are created with a combination of open-source and proprietary software components. How can device owners and manufacturers ensure regulatory compliance when they don’t know exactly what software components make up each device?

The NetRise platform aids in compliance adherence by enabling you to quickly see the licenses that govern open-source or third-party code. Knowing what is running within devices gives you the ability to ensure utilization is permitted and compliant. Compliance issues can also be found using natural language queries with NetRise Trace.

With NetRise, organizations can:

  • Quickly see all the licenses their software components use
  • Stay compliant with the terms of license agreements
  • Limit exposure and reduce the risk of a software license violation
  • Avoid costly noncompliance fines 

How It WorksOur Process

In order to stay compliant, XIoT manufacturers must be mindful of OMB memorandum M-22-18 and retain adherence to the NIST Cybersecurity Framework.

The NetRise Platform dives deep into asset firmware to identify all software components in use. Components are matched to any associated open-source or third-party licenses, allowing you to prove compliance with raw data. Users can quickly and easily search across their entire environment with a single query, leveraging the AI-powered intent interpretation capabilities of NetRise Trace to identify issues without foreknowledge of exactly what to look for.

Protect Your AssetsSoftware Supply Chain Security for Your Industry

NetRise empowers software supply chain risk management for a variety of industries and operating environments. 

Partnering with NetRise to investigate firmware is a force multiplier for consultancies. Instead of manually testing the security of XIoT devices, NetRise automates and standardizes the process while producing previously unattainable results. Learn more.

The NetRise Platform enables device manufacturers to find issues in software and firmware before release to customers. NetRise also helps manufacturers quickly investigate and react to vulnerabilities and zero days.  Learn more.

The NetRise Platform makes the opaque inner workings of firmware and software components transparent, providing deep visibility with the most complete SBOMs and the most comprehensive SBOM capabilities of any solution. NetRise provides a central repository for vulnerability management, enabling users to quickly search across every device and vendor. Learn more.

Devices with unknown risks and unknown supply chains should not be allowed on government networks. Understanding the makeup and risks of devices is critical to secure operations on federal networks. The NetRise Platform aligns directly with executive orders, NERC-CIP, and government standards. Learn more.

NetRise helps healthcare systems stay FDA- and HIPAA-compliant by illuminating vulnerable components in software supply chains and within devices on clinical networks. Learn more.

Introducing a device to an environment responsible for critical infrastructure demands a complete understanding of the components, supply chain, and risks of the device. NetRise provides insight into devices and helps ensure adherence to NERC-CIP standards. Learn more.

We had no idea [these vulnerabilities] existed in our environment. Yes, our vulnerability trending had a spike, but half the battle is even knowing you had those vulnerabilities in the first place.

FAQFrequently Asked Questions About Compliance Adherence

Everything you need to know about how NetRise enables compliance adherence.

Adhering to software licenses protects your company from costly fines, keeps your brand reputation intact, and builds trust with other vendors in the industry. Noncompliance could mean costly device rebuilds, patches, or disruptions to operations.

The NetRise Platform enables you to quickly view the licenses that govern open-source or third-party code use and allows you to ensure compliance.

When you know what components are in your devices, you’re able to mitigate risk better. During events like the log4j breach, IoT device manufacturers and device owners became acutely aware of their inability to determine where vulnerable components are present on networks. A complete component list (a software bill of materials) is the only way to tell if you are exposed to such a vulnerability. NetRise goes beyond simply providing the most complete SBOMs, however. Users can also easily search for vulnerable components across the entire network and quickly determine which devices require attention.
