Kudelski Group launches IoT security centre of excellence
The Kudelski Group, a digital security provider, has launched its Internet of Things Security Centre of Excellence to help and guide companies to secure their IoT innovations during a product’s lifecycle.
The centre will provide services that not only include hardware and software evaluations and assessments, but also recommendation and implementation of effective design and control frameworks, countermeasures to reduce risks, protect investments and legal advice.
The Kudelski Group is focusing its efforts on three distinct areas; IoT security, IoT security posture improvement, and IoT cybercrime countermeasures, adding that the key to success is to achieve the right balance between security measures, risk, and cost.
Among the facilities the Swiss group offers are in-depth evaluations of existing products in the laboratory to assess the security of chipsets, hardware and software used in IoT devices and ecosystems, as well as providing advice and services, and embedding sleeper countermeasures to fight against threats.
“While IoT devices have a well-developed and strong functional architecture enabling business operation, the security architecture has its own rules and methods to reach the required level of reliability and security, creating constraints that are potentially not aligned with functional requirements,” the company noted. “Thanks to their extensive know-how in optimising security without restraining functional possibilities, the Kudelski Group’s experts help increase device security to lower risks and enhance performance early in the design cycle, using hybrid architectures.”
