SigmaDots Covers All Three Levels When Securing Industrial IoT Systems

OEMs often tout their “system approach” to design. In theory, this means that they look at the end application, and then design each aspect of the system to meet the needs of that application. Security is no different. The OEM must ensure that there are no holes in the security chain. However, the OEM typically stops at the outside of the box. If you plug in a rogue device, you’re generally on your own. Or if there’s a problem upstream, like with the cloud provider, it’s hard to fault the OEM for that. One vendor that’s taking a three-layer approach to security is SigmaDots, a company based in Israel that’s part of the Essence Group. I like the fact that they are concerned about security at all potential levels: the system, the network, and the device.
