Cradlepoint S700 IoT router with zero trust security

Cradlepoint has announced the S700, a multipurpose IoT router designed to provide a rich zero trust security service to enterprise customers. Coupled with Cradlepoint NetCloud Exchange Secure Connect, the router provides a comprehensive cloud-managed network solution to safeguard IoT devices as today’s attack surface expands and adversaries increasingly target connected devices. By offloading security from the perimeter to a distributed zero trust architecture, Cradlepoint offers IoT devices access to a collection of robust security services that have traditionally not been available on typical IoT routers.

Orchestrated with only a few clicks through a cloud-based management system, the router removes deployment and management complexity and easily builds effective zero trust encrypted tunnels over cellular and wired links. 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.

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. 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 router.

As a multipurpose IoT router designed for the enterprise, the device 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 router also adds advanced features, such as active GNSS/GPS for asset tracking and GPIO pins to control and monitor external sensors.
