Making the Grade with Linux and Cybersecurity at the Intelligent Edge

A Microweb Tech Series With Michael Mehlberg

Watch them all

Open source has become a game changer for innovation, from the data center to the far edge. Software developers use open source Linux because of its ease of access, flexibility, and leading-edge technologies. It also has one of the largest and most prolific communities, with vast amounts of resources. At the intelligent edge, where devices and systems have mission-critical functionality, Linux adoption has lagged behind other markets. But the momentum is shifting, and Linux has the potential to lead the way for a massive transformation of the embedded industry.

Join Michael Mehlberg, vice president of marketing for Wind River® Security, for a fast-paced micro series covering the requirements needed for Linux to make the grade at the intelligent edge.

Using open source early in the proof-of-concept cycle means taking advantage of the rapid pace of open source innovation. Taking your solution to market comes with additional measures meant to protect your device throughout its lifecycle.

Open Source Gaining at the Edge

The proliferation of open source software on edge devices has grown by orders of magnitude year over year. But a single, static variant of Linux on the edge can’t meet the requirements of every market. That’s why a variant of Linux that could adapt, changing to address different requirements in different markets, would be a huge asset to any intelligent edge company.
