This is the third of three parts about root of trust and the Internet of Things. In Part 1 and Part 2, I covered how root of trust is an important approach to managing risk in virtualized network—especially compliance risks. The first two posts in this series examined several reasons to consider root-of-trust technologies. In […]

This is the second of three posts about the root of trust and the Internet of Things. In my first post I wrote about the burden of technology compliance and how it may be changing as virtualization enters service provider and enterprise networks and underlies the Internet of Things (IoT). I also wrote about a […]

Regulatory compliance is an unloved cost of goods—an expense to be managed, like cafeteria subsidies or fleet fuel costs. Major regulatory gaps are opening around the Internet and Internet of Things (IoT), and especially in the plumbing under the IoT, which is rapidly evolving in a process known as network function virtualization (NFV). This future […]

And they have similar but distinct needs for securing those applications. Virtual machines are the most separate and secure method of virtualizing hardware, enforced by hardware. Each virtual machine […]

As organizations adapt to these changes, they face the Sisyphean task of securing and hardening their networks from external agents. And therein lies the problem: companies conscious of the cloud’s benefits are hesitant to adopt cost-saving virtualization because of security […]
