Although it has become a trending topic, the Internet of Things (IoT) is not a new phenomenon. In recent years, the market has seen a boom in network-connected devices across all verticals. From wearables tracking our personal fitness to smart buildings capable of predictive maintenance, the IoT is having a significant impact on our daily lives.
Due to this increased connectivity, embedded software is becoming more exposed to common security threats such as IP theft, reverse engineering, and unauthorized usage. For their own peace of mind, device manufacturers are advised to implement a comprehensive software monetization program that takes care of all their licensing and entitlement management needs, and in the process, keeps their trade secrets secret.
