Connecting and being connected makes us vulnerable to hackers. With the number of IoT devices forecasted to reach 20.4 billion by 2020, the need for product security becomes even more pressing.
Every week, hundreds of new vulnerabilities are revealed by security reporting services such as the Common Vulnerabilities & Exposures (CVE) database operated by the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). However, manually monitoring the constant flood of new vulnerabilities is time-consuming and challenging, so product software security is often addressed as an afterthought rather than early in the product development cycle.
To help developers easily manage software security, NXP has announced the company is now offering Vigiles™ Security Monitoring and Management Service, a web-based tool that automates the process of vulnerability monitoring and management for open source software components operating within the Yocto Linux environment.
