In-brief: Two announcements from tech device giant Samsung underscored the company’s big bets on the Internet of Things.
Intel IoT Platform
In-brief: Afero, a startup offering a platform for Internet of Things devices, scored a $20.3 million Series A financing round, in part by promising a scalable Internet of Things platform that doesn’t skimp on security.
In-brief: Warning that the IoT ecosystem also comes with increased security risks, expanding the attack surface and increasing the need to protect assets, Intel announced changes to its IoT platform and development portfolio.
In-brief: The security firm Trend Micro announced that it was joining the AllSeen Alliance, an open source platform for connecting Internet of Things devices.
Intel unveiled a new Internet of Things platform this week dubbed (surprisingly enough) the “Intel IoT Platform.” The goal is to provide a unified platform for connecting diverse and distributed connected things. Given Intel’s big investment in security with the purchase of McAfee, its no surprise that security is a big part of the “value add” for the IoT platform. Intel says that its IoT platform promotes interoperability of network, operational technology and information technologies. The IoT Platform envisions Intel Quark™ to Intel Xeon, and Intel-based devices, gateways, and datacenter solutions with hardware-based root of trust. With hardware enabled identity and secure boot features, Intel believes that you can eliminate a wide range of malicious attacks and compromises. Intel’s IoT Gateway devices are based on its 2009 acquisition of WindRiver. They also wrap security intelligence from Intel’s acquisition of McAfee. Specifically, Intel has embedded anomaly and intrusion detection and prevention capabilities in […]
