Icon Labs Products Immune to the Heartbleed SSL Bug

Posted: Updated:

“Heartbleed is a serious vulnerability in OpenSSL. While this vulnerability exposes millions of devices to serious security concerns, we are happy to report that our Iconfidant SSL solution is not affected by Heartbleed,” said Alan Grau, President of Icon Labs. “Designing security solutions for embedded devices means including multiple layers of protection. The Heartbleed bug highlights the importance of security for all devices connected to the Internet.”

Embedded devices require security solutions designed specifically for them – simply using a desktop security solution in an embedded device is not an answer. Icon Labs provides a full suite of security products and services for device manufacturers.

“The Heartbleed bug points out that undiscovered vulnerabilities can be lurking in places previously assumed to be safe,” commented Steve Hoffenberg, Director of M2M Embedded Software & Tools at VDC Research. “Makers and users of embedded systems are best served by proactively protecting data to the fullest extent possible, and updating the security of those systems throughout their usable lifespans.”
