Embedded System Security
What is Embedded System Security?
Embedded system security is a strategic approach to protecting software running on embedded systems from attack. An embedded system is a programmable hardware component with a minimal operating system and software.
Embedded systems are designed to perform a dedicated function or functions. Found in consumer electronics, process control systems, aircraft, in-car systems and many other applications, embedded systems need to be extremely reliable. Because of their small size and limited compute resources, however, they can present security challenges for designers and developers.
Application and Device Controls: The basis of effective protection for embedded systems, where everything (apps drivers, libraries, USB drives) not explicitly permitted is blocked.
Anti-Malware and Memory Protection: Proven protection from the industry’s leading antivirus engine, capable of detecting even the most aggressive attacks.
File Integrity Monitoring and Log Audit: Combines the efficiency of critical files protection and change-tracking with regulatory compliance requirements.
