See what our global post-quantum study uncovered about where the world stands in the race to prepare for quantum computing.
Putting trust in your devices—from chip to field
and end to end—gives you the competitive edge you’re looking for.
That’s digital trust for the real world.
People and industries around the world turn to Internet of Things (IoT) devices to improve their health, homes and business operations. But when those devices aren’t secure, attackers have the potential to gain a tremendous amount of power
✓ Secure our homes
✓ Drive our cars
✓ Light our cities
✓ Control the flow of traffic
✓ Steady the pace of a beating heart
52% of manufacturers shy away from the upfront costs of improving device security. But with attacks on the rise and more industries and consumers than ever counting on secure connections in their IoT devices, the cost of improving security pales in comparison to the financial and reputational damage attackers leave in their wake.
THE 3 VULNERABILITIES INHERENT IN EVERY CONNECTED DEVICE:
An unsecured software supply chain (SSC) jeopardizes IoT device security, enabling unauthorized actions and compromising firmware and software integrity.
Compromising a single device is unlikely to damage all devices. But when attackers compromise a device’s software—or worse, its malware—every device running that software or malware is now at risk.
There are plenty of real-world examples of the damage an unprotected IoT device can do. But public key infrastructure (PKI) provides the device and network encryption, authentication and identity that keeps smart devices secure.
