Securing the IoT: Icon Labs Offers Embedded Security for Smart Devices
You’ve heard the warning. You’ve ignored it and now, it’s too late. You’ve been hacked. More sinister than identity theft, hacking dooms your privacy, your home, your car, and your family with the inevitability of cyber-intrusion. Unfortunately, Hollywood writers aren’t fantasizing these cyber-crises; they’re fictionalizing today’s headlines. While IoT-ready devices are being rushed to the market at unprecedented speeds to keep up with demand, important security protocols are getting pushed to the side, creating unsafe smart networks in hospitals, at work, and at home. The good news is that Icon Labs—an embedded security solutions company—has developed a Floodgate Security Framework to prevent these occurrences from happening.
Icon Labs has been in the embedded world for over 20 years, focused on real-time operating system-based devices. “Over the last several years, our specialty has been insuring the security of embedded devices,” says Ernie Rudolph, Executive Vice President of Icon Labs. “The reason is that these devices were not designed to be connected to the Internet and today they are. Twenty years ago, few thought of the Internet connected world. Twenty years ago nobody ever thought it would be important to secure those devices. Now we know and many of these devices are now out in the world, unprotected and vulnerable to attack.”
