Today, nearly every company is a digital security company — or should be. Security and keychain management starts with design and continues as long as the product is in use. Striking a balance between user-friendly and secure requires a thoughtful balance of technology with a deep understanding of the tolerances of the target market. Secure hardware design often starts with specially provisioned authenticity chips, which not only validate the device but also prevent the manufacturer from producing non-sanctioned units. Depending on the device, securing against a variety of physical attacks and hacks in addition to the constant remote software attacks is necessary. Best practices for secure software development include regular updates to address new threats as they arise, and when updating, it is vitally important to ensure that it can only be updated by a verified source. Security continues through the cloud software and the end-user apps. Most importantly, every aspect of the security must be maintained — a chain is only as strong as its weakest link. Cardinal Peak’s end-to-end design capabilities confirm that no holes have been left in your security architecture.
