How IoT is Making Security Imperative for All Embedded Software

We now live in a world of interconnected things — where humans are interacting with a variety of machines and devices that are in turn communicating with other machines and devices — and it is here to stay. A renewed emphasis on software security is needed to address vulnerabilities in the proliferation of devices dependent on software, including medical devices, appliances, entertainment systems, automobiles, and the stand-alone sensors deployed as part of an organization’s IoT initiative.

Early identification and elimination of defects and standards violations is made possible by static code analysis tools integrated into developers’ IDEs and seamlessly incorporated into their development workflows.
