Silicon Labs Introduces Security Services to Assist IoT's Zero Trust Security Model
Silicon Labs Security Services offer unique IoT device identification injection certificates and 10-year SDK support.
FREMONT, CA: Silicon Labs has launched new Security Services to assist IoT firms in implementing Zero Trust security architectures to satisfy evolving cybersecurity requirements and battle the rising flood of attacks. Silicon Labs' industry-leading Secure VaultTM solutions get complemented by the new security services, which include a first-of-its-kind Custom Part Manufacturing Service (CPMS) for wireless SoCs and modules. CPMS is a secure provisioning solution that assists IoT developers in customizing connected goods with sophisticated security features to protect hardware, software, and ecosystems. The new solution also offers software development kit (SDK) support services for up to ten years, spanning the whole lifespan of an IoT product.
According to Omdia's Enterprise IoT 2021 Survey, executives launching IoT projects have grown 13 percent more concerned about IoT security in the last year. In addition, high-profile breaches and hacks of crucial infrastructure and home devices have heightened customer worries about quality, with malware IoT assaults growing by 59percent in the first six months of 2021 over the first six months of 2020.
"Developers face a daunting challenge driving innovation in IoT products for homes and industries while securing them against ever evolving threats. Trusted security hardware and software solutions are critical to their success," said Matt Johnson, president, Silicon Labs. "The days when simple password protection for authentication was sufficient are long gone. Our new Security Services make it easier for developers to implement custom hardware identities and trusted over-the-air security stack updates to reduce the risk of software, hardware and wireless access vulnerabilities."
IoT firms may use Silicon Labs Security Services to defend themselves against security breaches, intellectual property infringements, and counterfeiting. The new services also satisfy worldwide cybersecurity and communication standards, including the United States executive order mandating the deployment of Zero Trust security architectures and Matter and Wi-SUN secure identity requirements.
