Security is critical for today’s IoT and embedded systems. Medical devices, retail point of sale, and industrial control systems handle sensitive data, so the security of devices used in these applications is essential. We’re partnering with Timesys to highlight best practices for designing and maintaining security in systems using our feature-rich and performance-scalable i.MX applications processors.


Developers of embedded systems must ensure their products are secure, or they place their customers at risk Developers of embedded systems must ensure their products are secure, or they place their customers at risk massive commitment of time and resources because of the flood of vulnerabilities. With Vigiles, Timesys is delivering a breakthrough in the automation of vulnerability identification, tracking, analysis and mitigation.


Security is at the forefront of today’s IoT issues as the discovery of new vulnerabilities and the rate of attacks continue to escalate. Improving security is becoming especially critical for IoT and IIoT devices because of the rapid expansion of deployments combined with the rise in botnet, bricking and other attacks against these smart devices. Timesys is bringing to market a timely solution, designed to make these devices more secure and maintain that improved security posture into the future.
