UL launched its SafeCyber Digital Security Platform, a suite of solutions aimed at democratizing IoT security and empowering key organizations, such as device manufacturers, suppliers and systems integrators, to take charge of their connected ecosystems. From smart home devices and sophisticated medical devices, to advanced automotive and Industry 4.0 technology, UL’s SafeCyber Digital Security Platform aims to mitigate the growing volume of cybersecurity threats facing these organizations. “The proliferation of connected devices has unlocked immense new economic potential, but it has also introduced a flurry of cybersecurity risks that can materially impact businesses – said Jukka Makinen, managing director of the Identity Management and Security division at UL -. SafeCyber helps organizations holistically understand and assess risk, allowing both new and existing assets to be designed and maintained to conform with the latest cybersecurity legislation and best practices”. As part of the launch, UL formally introduced its Maturity Path capability, a solution that provides device manufacturers, suppliers and system integrators with a maturity assessment for connected device security to build sustainable product security governance and processes. UL also announced that it offers Firmware Check and Field Monitoring capabilities within the SafeCyber platform. Firmware Check will provide stakeholders with a security check on firmware implementations currently under development, whereas Field Monitoring will enable those organizations to perform security checks on firmware already in the field at scale. These capabilities will deliver detailed reporting on issues that could impact firmware security.
