According to IDC, the global revenue opportunity for the Internet of Things (IoT) in manufacturing is expected to grow to $913 billion by 2018. More and more manufacturers are looking to realize the benefits of utilizing IoT for manufacturing including reducing the cost of field operations, maintenance, and repairs; extending the life of assets; driving efficiency; and creating new revenue sources.

However, IoT-enabled devices also expose manufacturers to new security threats and risks. For instance, IoT-enabled devices are susceptible to malware which can affect production efficiency, expose confidential information and compromise human safety. In addition, manufacturers face the following IoT security challenges:

Shortening time to market. Manufacturers must ensure the timely addition of new security features to secure access and ensure device trustworthiness, while implementing a consistent approach to embedded system security across IoT-enabled devices.

Reducing development costs. Manufacturers need to balance security and cost reduction to maintain healthy profits. Manufacturers must reduce the cost of hardening devices and securing communications for their IoT-enabled devices while complying with industry cybersecurity standards.
