Wind River Continues Longstanding Leadership in Global Embedded Software Market

Wind River Continues Longstanding Leadership in Global Embedded Software Market

By Michael Krutz The IoT and embedded operating systems provide the backbone of the software that ship in billions of new devices every year. According to VDC Research, embedded OS unit shipments will grow from 13.3B in 2016 to 19.3B in 2020. Given this competitive environment, I’m excited to share that once again Wind River topped both the real-time operating…
IoT Security – The Next Generation of Social Responsibility

IoT Security – The Next Generation of Social Responsibility

By Neil McLellan In response to recent events, the White House and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have just released the much awaited and polished guidance around cyber security for the Internet of Things (IoT). Over the past several months, connected devices have been the focal point after several crippling attacks on various ISPs, known as distributed…
Building the Infrastructure for Digital Transformation in Industrial Automation

Building the Infrastructure for Digital Transformation in Industrial Automation

By Gareth Noyes I’ve discussed in my recent blog posts (“Software-Defined Infrastructure Sparks Digital Transformation of Industrial Automation” and “Software-Defined Infrastructure in Industrial IoT: How it Works”) how a software-defined infrastructure approach and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) are driving the digital transformation of industrial automation, replacing today’s custom-built, proprietary solutions with a more flexible alternative built on commercial-off-the-shelf…
Wind River Brings Safety-Critical Expertise to Functional Safety for Industrial IoT

Wind River Brings Safety-Critical Expertise to Functional Safety for Industrial IoT

By Chip Downing With the accelerating growth of the Internet of Things (IoT), it is increasingly important to identify and implement safety-related systems for smart grids, connected vehicles, robotics, industrial control systems, smart factories, and more. And when it comes to ensuring the reliability of these can't-fail systems, Wind River has a proven track record of success across critical infrastructure…
Software-Defined Infrastructure in Industrial IoT: How it Works

Software-Defined Infrastructure in Industrial IoT: How it Works

By Gareth Noyes In my last blog post I introduced the idea of a software-defined infrastructure approach driving and accelerating digital transformation in industrial automation. It offers a more flexible, adaptable and cost-effective alternative for developing automation systems leveraging the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). In contrast to conventional single-vendor, proprietary automation solutions, open software-defined infrastructure platforms allow for a…
When is an IoT Botnet not an IoT Botnet?

When is an IoT Botnet not an IoT Botnet?

By Mychal McCabe IoT botnets continue to make news, with new strains of malware infecting a range of internet-connected devices and then using those devices to participate in historically large distrubuted denial of service (DDoS) attacks. By some estimates the Mirai strain of malware has infected over one million devices since it emerged, with more to come following its release…
IoT is a Business Problem First

IoT is a Business Problem First

By Amar Parmar Living in the bay area, I get to see plenty of technology solutions and platforms emerge almost every single month. And with IoT as the current buzzword, a lot of platforms are aimed towards it.  If we follow the Gartner hype cycle from July 2016, we can see that “IoT Platforms” is still not quite at its…
Software-Defined Infrastructure Sparks Digital Transformation of Industrial Automation

Software-Defined Infrastructure Sparks Digital Transformation of Industrial Automation

By Gareth Noyes I’ll be at IoT Solutions World Congress in Barcelona this week, the leading global event for Industrial IoT (IIoT). I look forward to insightful discussions at the event, given it’s such a pivotal time in the industry as many industrial companies are working towards/undergoing a digital transformation. It’s exciting to know that Wind River software is playing…
Immunization Against the IoT Zombie Horde

Immunization Against the IoT Zombie Horde

By Alex deVries and Tim Skutt IoT zombies are out there. There are a lot of them. We won’t be rid of them soon. They will be reaching out to your device, so it’s important to take steps now to immunize it so your device won’t suffer. In a previous blog, “IoT Zombies are Eating the Internet,” we dug into recent…
How Connected Vehicle Technology Will Make Driving Safer Around the World

How Connected Vehicle Technology Will Make Driving Safer Around the World

By Marques McCammon Technological advances have already made driving safer with features like forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking. Looking ahead, perhaps by the end of the decade, new connected vehicle technology may allow millions of cars, trucks, buses and trains to talk wirelessly to each other, the roadway, traffic lights and nearby buildings, to address hazards drivers can’t…
