Foundries.io is working with the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST’s) National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) in their Trusted IoT Device Network-Layer Onboarding and Lifecycle Management Consortium project to define recommended practices for performing trusted network-layer onboarding, which will aid in the implementation and use of trusted onboarding solutions for IoT devices at scale.
NIST does not evaluate commercial products under this consortium and does not endorse any product or service used.
Additional information on this consortium can be found at: Trusted IoT Device Network-Layer Onboarding and Lifecycle Management Consortium.
Our CTO Tyler Baker accepted the Best in Show award on behalf of Foundries.io, winner in the Development Tools & Operating Systems category. Announced at a special event preceding the opening of the Embedded World Exhibition and Conference, the award recognises our FoundriesFactory product as leader in its field. Entries are judged using a 15-point rubric with scores awarded for design excellence, relative performance and market impact / disruption.
Writing his own obituary has helped him clarify the goals that he had yet to fulfill. Arm’s former CMO discusses why he started Foundries.io.
Tyler Baker, our CTO, describes how DevOps practices and platforms are being adopted for embedded development, and the benefits they bring (German language).
George Grey gives a preview of the things he will be talking about during his panel session on best practices for IoT System security, at the Embedded Technologies Expo and Conference in San Jose on June 28th.
Bill Curtis and Patrick Moorhead of Moor Insights & Strategy published an in depth research paper based on Bill’s experience with FoundriesFactory. Bill describes how the FoundriesFactory EPaaS (Embedded Platform-as-a-Service) and the new Arduino Pro Portenta X8 board are ushering in the start of the IoT plug-and-play era.
In 2016, Softbank’s Masayoshi Son compared the growth of IoT devices to the Cambrian explosion, referring to the biological Big Bang over 500 million years ago that resulted in our planet’s incredible diversity of life. He predicted a trillion connected devices in 20 years. When he made that bold prediction, analysts reckoned that we’d have 30 to 75 billion connected devices by 2022. The actual number turned out to be 8 to 15 billion, depending on how analysts define “connected devices.” This paper explains why IoT device deployments are not yet on a “trillion devices” trajectory and identifies the technology trend that makes Masayoshi Son’s bold prediction more realistic. We then show how FoundriesFactory, Foundries.io’s new and disruptive edge platform as a service (EPaaS), accelerates that trend.
Linux Magazin wrote (in German) about their experience using FoundriesFactory and concluded, “Anyone who needs a powerful environment for the development of IoT applications and their operation should therefore have seen Foundries.io at least once. It's easy to try out: the test account is free, and even a single Raspberry Pi 6 is enough to get started."
“We’re excited to partner with MontaVista to support its new MVEdge product, incorporating the FoundriesFactory DevOps platform” said George Grey, CEO of Foundries.io. “Coupling MontaVista’s storied Linux and services expertise with our groundbreaking approach of using cloud technologies to develop, deploy and maintain Linux software accelerates time to market and delivers new opportunities to OEMs building and deploying secure intelligent devices at the Edge.”
Stacey Higginbotham provides her own inimitable commentary on the Arduino Portenta X8 announcement. “There’s a lot to like with this announcement, because by creating this partnership [with Foundries.io] Arduino is putting a security model at the forefront of its industrial platform that will adapt to the needs of the device, which itself is connected from the get-go and designed for the long haul."
Jason Bloomberg explains in his Intellyx Brain Candy brief why the first rule of cybersecurity is to keep all of your software up-to-date – especially the firmware and operating system code that everything else depends on. He continues by describing how difficult this is for IoT devices, and how Foundries.io solves these problems with its open source, open specification IoT platform.
