PROTECTING THE VALUE OF YOUR IOT BUSINESS As OT and IT continue to evolve and become more intertwined, the embedded market is experiencing a resurgence of interest. The Internet of Things (IoT) is transforming production facilities into smart factories, utilities into smart grids, and traditional construction work into smart building development. As the concept of Industry 4.0 is becoming reality and cyber- physical systems are getting connected in distributed, flexible industrial networks, plant engineers are also realizing that machine features can be activated or upgraded through software at the point of need to allow a far more fluent relationship between maker and buyer. Established sales processes can be taken to a new level and modular, scalable busi- ness models introduced that are truly responsive to the needs of the market. This transformation results in new products and services for consumers and new revenue streams for the companies providing the infrastructure and services. However, it also brings about new threats as infrastructure providers and service providers contend with the chal- lenge of protecting their more complex systems against cyberattacks, securing the privacy of their clients' information, protecting the integrity of the system, and safeguarding their own intellectual property (IP). Leveraging their deep embedded market and security expertise, Wind River ® and Wibu- Systems ® have partnered to offer manufacturers of embedded systems all-encompassing security capabilities to safeguard their connected devices.
