Security vendors let loose their first salvo of product news today at the 2018 RSA Conference, which is currently underway in San Francisco. Here’s a look at some of the biggest announcements.
The difficulties of securing microprocessors embedded within the sensors, beacons, and billions of other tiny web-enabled devices that form the Internet of Things have experts issuing dire warnings of looming security disasters.
Seeking to help hardware makers mitigate that threat, Microsoft today introduced an IoT security platform called Azure Sphere. Now in private preview with select device manufacturers, the new technology combines silicon-level Microsoft security technology with a new processor operating system called Azure Sphere OS, and a cloud-based Azure Sphere security service that utilizes certificate-based authentication techniques to enable trustworthy device-to-device and device-to-cloud communication.
Microsoft will make Azure Sphere developer kits broadly available by the middle of the year. It expects the first wave of Azure Sphere devices to reach market by the end of 2018.
