Sectigo launches PKI Risk Assessment Tool
This tool will help businesses assess their exposure to security risks. 

Organizations will be given a brief questionnaire that then is used to create a custom report that evaluates risk across eight different Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) use cases: web servers, email, networked devices, IoT devices, application development, DevOps environments, key management in public cloud, and SSH-based server management. 

“Though PKI has been around for years, its applications in the enterprise have evolved exponentially with the likes of DevOps, IoT, IAM, making the need for automation and crypto agility greater than ever,” explained Tim Callan, senior fellow at Sectigo. “We are proud to provide the industry with this unique resource so that IT professionals can better uncover the risks they face and then make well-informed business decisions to protect their most valuable assets.”

Silicon Labs has launched Simplicity Studio 5
The latest version of the IDE simplifies development of System-on-Chips (SoCs) and modules, microcontrollers, and other embedded products for IoT devices.
