Embedded devices are now clear and present targets for security breach.  From edge IoT devices, to cars and medical devices, and industrial infrastructure facilities, hackers have taken control of these devices for their own financial, destructive, or notorious end. And this trend will continue to increase in frequency and depth, challenging enterprises and developers deploying devices in that employ emerging trends like IoT, SDN, and NFV.

These markets make available new attack vectors and avenues to potentially exploit vulnerabilities. Nine months ago, one may not have imagined simple purposed, but unsecure, sensor endpoints could be exploited to participate in an organized DDOS attack. And this has now called for more industry and government compliance standards around cyber security that manufacturers will have to comply with. Thus shipping devices that can withstand cybersecurity attacks will be critical to your product's success and continued growth. The good news is there are several security features available to embedded developers to make their products highly secure.  And MontaVista can help you bring them to market.
