Wind River
Safety & Certification 

Compliance with industry regulations, safety-criticality guidance, and security features provide enormous advantages for software companies in today’s digital culture.


Wind River® draws on decades of experience in safety-critical projects
to deliver end-to-end expertise, from system design through the certification process. This lets your team save time, better utilize valuable resources, and develop and innovate with confidence.

In a digital world, safety and security must be built in from the start, in every industry. Formal attestation of safe and secure functionality provides an enormous market advantage, and many intelligent systems must achieve industry-specific safety certifications before they can ever deploy.
