Traditional IT security isn’t protecting embedded open source systems in IoT and IIoT deployments
Here at Timesys, we’ve been noticing some concerning trends when it comes to open source embedded system security and the rise of Internet of Things (IoT) and other intelligent devices. We’ve been hard at work developing a solution that can help ease your burden of carefully developing, monitoring, and maintaining security measures on your devices.
More and more IoT and IIoT products are being built with open source embedded software — which we think is great. But because of the growing number of developers turning to open source components for their products, security processes can’t keep up with the rate at which open source devices are being deployed. Traditional IT security has been built with secure perimeters and trusted environments, and has fewer intelligent devices and smaller attack surfaces. But those parameters have begun to change. And with more products to target, the number of security threats will only increase as well.
