Full encryption, disk and network
Only software packages from trusted developers and vendors will be installed to your gateways. Installed software will be immutable and application data fully encrypted. Furthermore, messages exchanged over the network will be encrypted. It will neither be possible to install malicious software nor to eavesdrop your network communications.
Application running on your gateways will be virtualised and confined to their own environments. This adds an additional layer of security, preventing anomalies from spreading through the system. The full isolation of processes and their associated data makes localisation and resolution of anomalies easy.
Zero security debt
We introduce continuous upgrades without machine downtime to the manufacturing sector.Security patches will be delivered to your gateways as soon as vulnerabilities are become known. Our extended security maintenance offering for Ubuntu Core is active for ten years. You will not have to worry about CVEs. We will keep your security debt at zero.
As companies continue to embrace Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, security and quick, easy system updates are criticalJason Shepherd, Director of Strategy and Partnerships, IoT, Dell.

Bespoke for the edge
Ubuntu can be streamlined to meet the exact requirement of underlying hardware and applications, thereby optimising footprint.
Ubuntu provides a native tools and APIs for controlling and monitoring remote devices securely through the cloud.
Snap packages enable a containerised architecture for IoT stacks. Software components can easily be orchestrated to create smart applications at the edge.
Snaps facilitate system integration thanks to their portability and reusability. Transactionally updated packages enable cost-effective maintenance for complex installations.
Docker containers complement snap packages to deliver full flexibility in the development and deployment of applications at the edge.
Single node Kubernetes packaged in a snap, can be deployed to edge gateways in order to orchestrate containers running a variety of IoT services.
Connectivity out of the box
For all types of platforms
Ubuntu gives full flexibility to deploy IoT platforms of your choice in a snap.
