Symantec Solutions to Secure Internet of Things

The connected home and everything connected to it are about to become very secure.

With the rise of the Internet of Things (IoT), more and more devices in the home are becoming connected to a network. This presents a major concern for builders, integrators and homebuyers alike in regards to the security of these devices being compromised.

In response, Symantec—a tech company known for its security software—has created a new solution designed to protect IoT devices worldwide.

The company announced their Embedded Critical System Protection on Tuesday, setting forth on a mission to protect IoT devices “by locking down the software embedded in the device to protect against zero-day attacks and to prevent compromise.”

IoT devices are becoming more and more popular for builders to include in their smart home, and studies show that there will be nearly 25 billion connected and networked devices by the end of 2020. This poses major security risks as the Internet of Things isn’t always protected.
