Real-Time Operating System: What it is and why you might want to use one

With the rapid growth of the IoT and the number of new devices being developed to take advantage of it, it’s becoming more and more likely that you will consider using an RTOS in the near future. The remainder of this article will explore the overall RTOS value proposition, both pros and cons, so you can consider whether an RTOS would be beneficial for your next product development project.

IoT Security in Depth: From the Device to the Cloud

By forging new links between the cyberworld and the physical world, IoT creates a paradigm shift that dramatically increases the scope of security. As organizations rush to adopt IoT, novel security challenges abound, amplified by an enormous diversity of hardware, software, services, and deployment locations. In fact, while 91 percent of IoT decision-makers report plans to increase the number of their connected devices by more than 15 percent within two years, they cite security as the greatest concern for deploying IoT technologies.

Threats to devices, applications, services, connections, and data must be addressed holistically across the IoT infrastructure to create a consistent security posture across IoT devices, the edge, the cloud, and the connections between all those elements.

IOT DEVICE MANAGEMENT: SECURE AND SCALABLE DEPLOYMENTS

To effectively manage a complex IoT deployment requires an IoT device management application that not only lets you visualize the activity of complex networks in a simplified form, but also provides these important capabilities:
• Management: Manage large numbers of devices efficiently
• Monitoring: Monitor IoT deployments and ensure all devices are operating as expected
• Security: Continually scan the deployment for security issues and repair them

Key Questions to Ask to Make the Right IoT Endpoint Decision

Across industries and across use cases and business processes, organisations are increasingly implementing Internet of Things (IoT) applications to improve operational efficiencies, enhance existing offerings, and bring new offerings to market.
