Lynx Software Technologies today announced that it has joined the recently launched Internet of Things Security Foundation (IoTSF) to support its vision of delivering a safe Internet of Things environment for all.
Robert Day, Vice President, Sales & Marketing at Lynx Software Technologies, said, “We are very excited about this industry wide initiative to tackle the issue of IoT security and promote and share best practice. We strongly share its commitment to IoT security and are delighted to join the shared mission to make it safe for devices to connect. Lynx has a great deal of experience to offer the emerging IoT, and our technologies offer the highest levels of safety and security, proven and certified in deployed systems. Solutions like LynxSecure, with its recently announced real time advanced persistent threat (APT) detection functionality, will we believe make a significant contribution to the creation of a safe and secure IoT.”
The IoTSF is a non-profit, technology neutral body, which will take a system wide, holistic perspective on IoT security best practice. It is not a standards body but intends to work collaboratively with existing standards and other consortia “by default”.
The programme of activities of the foundation will initially target three key stakeholder groups: technology providers, systems adopters and end users. IoTSF has an executive steering board comprised of leading technology organisations and security experts including BT, Vodafone, Imagination Technologies, Royal Holloway University of London, Copper Horse Solutions, Secure Thingz, NMI and PenTest Partners. John Haine, industry veteran and visiting professor at the University of Bristol has been announced as the inaugural chair.
