IoT Security Update: August 2021

Just because it’s summer doesn’t mean hackers take a vacation. It appears that the current implementations of our DOME™ platform for securing building automation networks and devices could not be better timed. Connected devices in smart buildings and industrial IoT networks continue to be targets for hackers looking to compromise and control systems. These cyber threats pose significant occupant safety, financial, and reputation risks.

That is why we are proud to continue our work with building system OEMs, systems integrators, and our technology partners to provide real-time cybersecurity tools that help support a powerful, long-term cybersecurity strategy for smart buildings.

We are often asked about the long-term performance of our security solutions, such as “Will my device be protected in 10-20 years? and “How can I plan for the future when everything in the cybersecurity realm changes so quickly? We recently presented “The Importance of Quantum Resistance for Critical Security Functions” as part of Microchip’s SHEILDS UP webinar series. This presentation provides a detailed look at the importance of quantum-resistance for long-life devices.
