Device Manufacturers Grapple With New Regulations
The Cost of Compliance
New regulatory standards raise security and visibility expectations for device manufacturers across multiple domains, from critical infrastructure to medical devices and consumer IoT. This introduces added complexities in product development, legacy device management, and other processes, ultimately impacting the bottom line and affecting time to market.
MDMs' Delicate Balancing Act
IoMT manufacturers find themselves on the forefront, having to deal with new regulatory requirements and rising expectations from healthcare delivery organizations (HDOs). This forces them to navigate the complexities of device sophistication, legacy systems, and patient safety while meeting heightened demands for responsibility and accountability.
Protecting devices from code-related vulnerabilities has become a critical regulatory requirement due to their significant role in over 40% of all IoT attacks. However, device makers continue to face ongoing difficulties in effectively safeguarding against vulnerabilities in third-party code, such as communication protocols, operating systems, and COTS components.
Compliance Reporting Gap
Meeting compliance reporting requirements presents critical challenges for device manufacturers. These challenges encompass data collection and analysis, timely reporting, signal detection, product traceability, and more. Meanwhile, most IoT devices lack even the most basic remote monitoring and data collection capabilities, further complicating the task of fulfilling compliance reporting obligations.
