Device & Equipment Manufacturers
Software is a critical component of many technological devices; the value of which may far exceed the value of the hardware alone. This creates several obstacles for vendors. The first is how to protect your software-driven hardware systems against threats to source code, data, algorithms, and other intellectual property assets. The second obstacle is how to establish and apply monetary value to the software that controls the features and functionality of your devices and equipment.
Protecting your intellectual property from theft and malicious manipulation enables you guarantee the integrity of your products while protecting your competitive differentiators. Furthermore, building incremental value by enabling specific features, technology vendors can realize increased revenue from the software that powers their devices.
