Inventory & Querying

Get a comprehensive, detailed security assessment of your XIoT device firmware.


FIRMWARE ANALYSISAnalyze & Inventory Device Firmware 

You keep an inventory of your devices, but what about all the firmware and software components within those devices?

The NetRise Platform analyzes the firmware of devices to identify weaknesses introduced by poor security architecture or design choices. When you know what is running on your devices, it is easier to find and remediate risks.

NetRise's inventory and querying capabilities enable:

  • An accurate, complete understanding of devices down to the firmware and software component level
  • Compliance with regulations and industry standards
  • Automation of manual tasks, freeing your team to work on other priorities
  • AI-powered semantic search with NetRise Trace

How It WorksSurface Risks

NetRise discovers the firmware and software components within Extended Internet of Things (XIoT) devices, identifying vulnerabilities, misconfigurations, compromised credentials, bad cryptographic keys and certificates, dependencies, and malware.

At the end of an assessment, you receive a comprehensive report surfacing the greatest risks and informing you of known fixes. Trace helps organizations quickly trace impacted assets with a single query, creating a comprehensive graph of affected software supply chain components and their associated vulnerabilities.

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 Inventory & Querying

Everything you wanted to know about inventory and querying with NetRise.

When you have a firmware inventory, you can rapidly respond to threats as they occur. If you don’t have an inventory, your team has to manually research every component in your devices to determine whether your network has unaddressed vulnerabilities.

When you upload a device file, the NetRise Platform determines the components that make up that device. NetRise then identifies vulnerabilities, misconfigurations, compromised credentials, bad cryptographic keys and certificates, dependencies, and malware. You’ll receive a report at the end with results and remediation recommendations.

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.
