|Phaedrus adds security to their embedded product portfolio and strengthens Icon Labs’ worldwide presence
Icon Labs, a leading provider of embedded networking and security technology, today announced that it has selected Phaedrus Systems, the leading specialist in the support of engineers at all stages of embedded safety-critical and high-integrity projects in the United Kingdom, to be the exclusive reseller of Icon Lab’s award winning Floodgate Security Framework.
Importance of security for embedded devices
“Worldwide, today’s modern industrial automation, utilities, and embedded devices are complex connected systems performing critical functions,” says Alan Grau, CEO of Icon Labs. “Including security in these devices is a critical design task. Cybersecurity is a global problem and OEMs, regardless of their location, need to consider security features early in the design process to ensure the device is protected from advanced cyber-threats, and can meet varying regulatory requirements. Enhanced security increases the value for all end users. Partnering with Phaedrus Systems adds an important dimension to our worldwide presence.”
"Icon Labs is the leader in providing cybersecurity - an increasing requirement for embedded systems, particularly in the safety-critical and high-integrity manufacturing sector," says Chris Hills, founder and CTO of Phaedrus Systems. "By adding the Floodgate Security Framework to our portfolio, we now provide developers with the ability to build security into their architecture."
Floodgate Security Framework provides foundation for secure, connected devices
Icon Labs’ Floodgate Security Framework provides a platform for developing secure, connected devices. The platform is designed to ensure that security is intrinsic to the architecture of the device itself and incorporates security management and visibility, device hardening, data protection, and secure communications. These capabilities provide the foundation for building secure, connected devices. Natively securing the devices simplifies protection, audit, and compliance independent of the secure perimeter, reducing the need for expensive and complicated security appliances.
Icon Labs’ Floodgate Security Framework provides:
- Security policy management
- Event and command audit log reporting
- Integration with the McAfee ePolicy orchestrator (ePO)
- Integrated embedded firewall
- Firmware and intrusion detection support
- Support for RTOS and Embedded Linux based devices
