Microsoft Offers New IoT Security


Internet-of-things

In recent news, Microsoft has launched a new security MCU (microcontrollers) unit for IoT products. IoT stands for internet of things, which are used for interrelated computer devices that are connected via internet, wifi, or bluetooth. IoT products allow you to stay connected to devices and gadgets while physically separated from the device. There are many IoT products on the market that is gaining popularity such as; smart thermostat, home security systems, smart pet feeder, smart washer and dryer and the like. IoT products allow the user to control the device while being away.

As more IoT products are being produced and made available to the consumer, there are some security risks. Since more devices are being used by the internet, wifi, and bluetooth, the information being passed through those mediums are at risk of being hacked and obtained by outside threats. IoT products must be safe to use for the consumer.

Microsoft has provided a solution by developing a microcontroller that can be integrated into IoT products and allow for added security. With the new microcontroller, the user can now run security updates on the device and manage software. Not only is Microsoft offering a wide range of products and services to the customer, the new microcontroller will use Linux OS. By using Linux, it offers a great platform that allows silicon partners to rapidly innovate and use it as a starting point of development. The new system can be used on any cloud service including AWS and Alibaba Cloud.
