On March 15th, ABI Research and Rambus will host a webinar titled “Building practical IoT security to preempt tomorrow’s cyberattacks.” The webinar will be presented by Michela Menting, Research Director at ABI Research and Asaf Ashkenazi, Vice President of IoT Security Products at Rambus.
“IoT technologies are rapidly growing, although cybersecurity is not keeping pace quickly enough to address the increasing exposure of vulnerabilities in the ecosystem,” Ashkenazi tells Rambus Press.
“An increase of connected devices and service adoption means a proliferation of threat vectors and therefore, greater liability for manufacturers, service providers and implementers alike.”
Deploying a practical and scalable cybersecurity solution, says Ashkenazi, can help minimize risks. However, to do so adequately, a comprehensive strategy must start in silicon and continue throughout the lifecycle of a product.
“Our webinar will explore how IoT security can be deployed efficiently and seamlessly from device to cloud – without negatively impacting profitability or time to market,” adds Ashkenazi.
More specifically, the webinar will answer the following five questions:
- How is the IoT evolving?
- Why is there a need for security?
- What are the threats facing IoT technologies?
- What are the challenges for secure deployment?
- How can Rambus tackle the issues?
As we’ve previously discussed on Rambus Press, the widespread use of connected devices has created an attractive target for cyber criminals and other unscrupulous operators. IoT security should therefore be viewed as a primary design goal, rather than a tertiary afterthought. IoT service providers and OEMs need to be assured that securing IoT devices is not an insurmountable task.
As such, IoT devices should be protected by a turnkey security solution that can be easily implemented, maintained and upgraded to meet the evolving challenges of a dynamic threat landscape. Rambus’s IoT Security Service is a pre-integrated device to cloud security solution that will simplify the implementation of security for IoT service providers and OEMs.
