ShieldIoT raises $7.4m to deploy coreset-AI for IoT cybersecurity

As IoT networks become larger using conventional anomaly detection algorithms on large datasets can take hours or days, which increases vulnerability to IoT cyber-attacks. ShieldIoT’s coreset-AI helps cut that time down to minutes.

Consumer IoT: vulnerability disclosure practice “unacceptably low”

Despite small year-on-year improvements, progress on vulnerability disclosure for consumer IoT security is unacceptably low according to the IoT Security Foundation.

Interconnect spec speeds heterogenous computing

The rapid emergence of the Compute Express Link (CXL) specification is an excellent example of heterogenous computing — but not all heterogenous computing is necessarily…
