Security is critical for IoT devices, but how much is needed for various types of devices? Control systems in nuclear plants need a higher level of security than those in a home toaster, but how does an engineer decide?

Icon Labs has released its Floodgate Modbus Protocol Filtering product. This extension to Icon Labs Floodgate Security Framework adds critical protection capabilities for Industrial IoT and RTOS-based devices.
