IoT Security Challenge
Security has become the biggest challenge for IoT device makers. New vulnerabilities surface at an increasing pace.
How can you protect users’ privacy and earn their trust year in year out? A single breach is enough to impact your revenues and brand materially, and ever more sophisticated attacks are developed daily. Even if your device is secure today doesn’t mean that you are covered tomorrow. Security is never ready.
Maintaining software, security, and device certifications up to date requires constant development. However, technology evolution accelerates, narrowing down codebase maintenance windows. Stabilizing software and getting support for, say, ten years is difficult and costly.
What is Long-term SDK Support Service?
Silicon Labs provides IoT device makers SDK maintenance support for wireless hardware for up to 10 years. With the Long-term SDK Support Service (LTSSS), you can keep an SDK branch current with timely security patches and major bug fixes for up to 10 years.
Our standard software support service, available at no additional cost, provides you with complete SDK support with all patches, bug fixes, and PSIRTs for one year. Additionally, we update major bugs and PSIRTs at our discretion for one additional (second) year.
LTSSS now significantly extends your software stability with Silicon Labs. It guarantees long-term support for up to 10 years through major bug fixes, security patches, and quality control regression testing for the SDK branch under contract for up to three SoC part numbers.
What’s the Benefit of LTSSS?
- Reduce your software development and maintenance costs
- Minimize potentially disruptive software changes
- Maintain robust security, current software, and up-to-date device certifications for up to 10 years
- Gain the ultimate product longevity advantage in the IoT markets
