Thursday 10 June Exset Labs announced that it has joined the Open Security & Safety Alliance (OSSA) to further strengthen its commitment to support the development of embedded security frameworks across industries.
“The security of cyber-physical systems/IoT devices is often left as an afterthought by many manufacturers,” says Bastiaan van Hamersveld, CEO of Exset Labs. “There are, of course, many reasons why. For example, there are not many embedded security frameworks in place, and if there are, a lot of companies do not take them seriously because they don't have any incentives to do so.”
“In addition, there is a shortage of skilled security experts that can help create and enforce these sorts of frameworks. That's why it is important for security companies like ours to align with established alliances like OSSA in order to build and expand standardized frameworks that can add value to the industry,” adds Daniel Stosch, Exset Labs' Commercial Director.
Adding to OSSA's outstanding trajectory, Exset Labs brings their 10-year experience to help facilitate and lend a voice to the embedded/cyber-physical systems security sector. With seasoned security specialists that have years of experience in the embedded security industry, Exset Labs's alliance with OSSA reaffirms its commitment to continue helping organisations build and develop secure cyber-physical systems/IoT devices.
The Open Security & Safety Alliance is a collaboration initiative that brings together like-minded organisations in order to create a framework providing standards and specifications for common components including an operating system, IoT infrastructure, collective approach for data security and privacy, and a drive for improved levels of performance for security and safety solutions. This will help the market and parties involved to focus on the aspects that really add value for their customers and open up new application possibilities, even beyond security and safety.
