Security in IoT is more than just a software update or encrypted chip. Effective security can only be established with the marriage of both software and hardware, often which is built with technologies from multiple companies. These technologies are often so complex that most customers are unable to complete the security task on their own.
What’s more, security is not a one and done static implementation. New threats are created every day.
Security schemes start at the beginning of the product roadmap and go through deployment and updates. Having a partner with experience in end-to-end in security can move businesses from initial product planning to designing, building, deploying and maintaining an IoT solution.
