Embedded Insiders Podcast – Keeping an eye on connected devices with data categorization

August 9, 2017 Rich Nass, Embedded Computing Brand Director, and Brandon Lewis, Technology Editor

"Data categorization" is helpful for analyzing information in IoT environments to support business intelligence applications, but it's also an elegant way of monitoring the behavior of devices to determine whether they are being used as part of a potential cyber attack. 

In this week's Embedded Insiders podcast, Rich Nass and Brandon Lewis welcome Jeff Finn, CEO of data categorization and security firm Zvelo. After some banter, Jeff describes how monitoring traffic coming from embedded, IoT, and network infrastructure devices with a snippet of source code can help security professionals categorize these systems based on their expected behavior, and issue cloud-based alerts when parameters are broken. 

The three also give thoughts on recent legislation from the U.S. Senate that attempts to standardize security in the Internet of Things.

This episode is brought to you by the Trusted Computing Group.
