Embedded Security

Security requirements are nowadays considered as a design goal in the development of networked devices and components in order to ensure the reliable and trouble-free operation of systems. The Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) even requires legal measures that affect the utility industry, the health sector and the transport industry. Especially in industrial IT, espionage, and targeted attacks on data as well as intellectual property constitute new risk and threat scenarios. embeX complies with them with a comprehensive range of services for Security by Design.

Our experts are certified to ISO 31000 (“Risk Management”) and ensure secure products from development to the end of the product lifecycle.
