We’re pleased to announce that Xitex has become a Founder Member of the Internet of Things Security Foundation (IoTSF).
Following rapid technology advancements in recent years, a realisation has grown of the number of benefits that the Internet of Things can offer, across multiple businesses. Of course, this growth has also sprung up a new security challenge: as more devices become connected to one another, they open themselves up to attackers.
The IoTSF recognises that IoT security is a number one concern for executives, providers, system adopters and users alike. It has been established as a response to the rising concerns and challenges regarding security. The IoTSF strives to be ‘the expert resource for sharing knowledge, best practice and advice’.
Xitex ltd. has had first hand involvement in security improvements in connected devices. Our experience includes working with Small Cells and 3G/4G basestations that can be deployed in home and/or enterprise premises. Using this experience, we are now excited about being able to support organisations like the IoT Security Foundation in promoting awareness of good security practices and in the creation and development of codes of best practice.
We hope that, together, our work will strengthen the currently weak levels of product security in the growing IoT market.
