The Global Market for Embedded Software Security Solutions, 2012-2016

WEST HARTFORD, Conn., April 11, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Global Information Inc. announces the addition of a new market research report "The Global Market for Embedded Software Security Solutions, 2012-2016" at

The market for embedded devices has begun to explode, both in terms of the sheer number of devices and the breadth of applications for which they are employed. With this growth come myriad threats to the security of embedded devices, which present both enticing targets for hackers and new potential entry points for penetration into networks in which many of these devices are connected. Along with the security threats are business opportunities to reduce those threats via security software, which is embedded into the devices and/or running on a networked system that monitors the security of the embedded devices.

VDC defines embedded devices as specialized or dedicated computer systems used to control items such as automobiles, industrial machinery, military hardware, medical devices, consumer electronics, and office equipment. Specifically excluded from VDC's definition of embedded devices are general-purpose computing systems such as desktop PCs, laptop PCs, and enterprise servers. However, smartphones and tablets are considered to be embedded systems.

A single product may contain multiple embedded devices. For example, an automobile may have dozens of separate embedded systems for controlling infotainment, power train, body electronics, airbags, and the like.
