October is National Cybersecurity Awareness month, and Automation Alley is committed to sharing the latest insights, trends, and solutions to keep your business protected from cyber threats. We'll kick things off with this new XIoT cybersecurity report from Automation Alley member Claroty. XIoT is the umbrella term for connected cyber-physical devices within industrial, health care, and commercial enterprise IoT environments. This report is a reflection of the need to secure the cyber-physical systems that enable our ability to innovate and sustain our lives. "We hope the State of XIoT Security report is a useful resource for Automation Alley customers interested in protecting OT and IoT assets in their industrial control systems (ICS)," said Claroty's Jay Holmstrom.
Team82 has revamped its biannual report to embrace an understanding of the vulnerabilities being disclosed and fixed within the Extended Internet of Things (XIoT). XIoT is the umbrella term for connected cyber-physical devices within industrial, healthcare, and commercial enterprise IoT environments.
XIoT Vulnerabilities Breakdown

Criticality and Impact
The vast majority of published XIoT vulnerabilities in the 1H 2022 were either critical or high severity.
