The data gathered by the Internet of Things (IoT) devices could make even the most well-established industries more efficient, productive, and sustainable. However, the same connected technologies could also put asset owners and operators at risk. As industrial IoT (IIoT) applications (such as manufacturing, agriculture, construction, energy, utilities, medical and transportation are being transformed), cyberattacks are becoming increasingly more common – not only in cases where devices are decades old, with hardly any security measures built-in. Leading IoT hardware and software components supplier, Eurotech, is helping companies to benefit from the digital transformation of the industry while ensuring their assets and the data they generate remains secure.
To combine multi-core performance with the required communication technologies and advanced security features, Eurotech has developed the ReliaGATE 10-14 multi-service IoT Edge gateway. It’s powered by the NXP Semiconductors i.MX 8M Mini, (which is based on the Arm Cortex-A53) and is designed to provide connectivity to industrial assets, field protocols and cloud connectors including Eurotech Everyware Cloud, Microsoft Azure, AWS and others. The IoT Gateway also comes with preinstalled optimized Linux operating system and a powerful IoT Edge Framework, Everyware Software Framework (ESF), which provides a flexible no-code/low-code application development environment for edge computers and IoT gateways.
The offering helps customers and system integrators to reduce their time to market and development efforts without compromising security. With this IoT Gateway Eurotech achieved PSA Certified Level 1 compliance, which means they have met the fundamental security requirements that help to protect a device.
Why PSA Certified is Important to Eurotech
The PSA Certified framework and independent assurance scheme helped Eurotech to deliver industry-leading security for their edge device, an important step to meeting the requirements of the operation technology security standard IEC 62443-4-2. This Eurotech approach of security certified integrated hardware and software, helps significantly to remove the barriers to security and make building a more secure IoT solution quicker, easier, and more cost-effective.
Overcoming Cybersecurity Costs and Prioritizing Security
Listen to Eurotech in the #BeyondTheNow Podcast as Marco Carrer (CTO of Eurotech) discusses IoT security at the edge.
“We continue to foster collaborations with like-minded companies and embrace initiatives like PSA Certified that raise the state of the art in security. If there are standard processes out there, it will give us confidence. It will raise the state of the art to a new level that will give us a good solid foundation on top of which to put the next innovation.”
