Addressing Security Vulnerabilities at the Source

Many embedded developers underestimate how vulnerable embedded devices are to cyber-attacks. When security issues do occur, organizations often respond by addressing the symptoms of poor security rather than the root causes.

How IoT is Making Security Imperative for All Embedded Software

Many IoT products lack proper security due to outdated software development practices. Hackers and criminals are acutely aware that many of the security procedures and applications in use today were designed to defend against attacks in the PC era – not current IoT threat vectors. Security isn't a product "add-on" or feature; it must be built in. Learn about the unique challenges of securing embedded applications and how to deploy processes and tools to deliver more secure products faster.

Developing Secure Embedded Software: Quality Doesn't Equal Security

Most organization put considerable focus on software quality, but software security is different. Embedded development presents the challenge of coding in a language that’s inherently insecure; and quality assurance does little to ensure security.

Eliminating Blind Spots in Commercial Trucking with IoT

Technology is becoming a critical business tool for truck manufacturers, fleet operators, and service centers. On-board diagnostics and telematic systems are a first step, but only provide a singular view and limited scalability. A more comprehensive view of truck health delivers reliability, improved uptime, and faster repairs; but this requires examining a larger and richer set of engine data together with external sources.

Fundamentals of Wire, Cable, and Connectivity

Continuous supply of electric power or faultless data transfer, provided mostly through wiring, are primary requirements affecting virtually all systems. This results in stringent requirements for production, installation, and operation of cables.

The Reality of Application Security: Scare Tactics or Genuine Threat?

Guardians of application security have perhaps become slightly immune to the fearful messages of cybersecurity vendors. The combination of ‘Big Data’ with an exponentially growing Internet of Things (IoT) would seem to provide the perfect storm conditions for the exploitation of vulnerable code streams. Read this whitepaper about the reality of AppSec to discover what are the real risks and how to mitigate them.
