Last week Icon Laboratories released “Floodgate Agent for VxWorks”. The Floodgate Agent provides situational awareness, device status monitoring, security policy management, and security event logging and reporting for VxWorks-based devices. With the Floodgate Agent, OEMs using VxWorks are now able to connect their devices to enterprise security management solutions including Icon Labs Security Manager and the McAfee ePO and ESM. Previously, customers using the McAfee management solutions had no ability to manage VxWorks based devices. The agent is a lightweight solution that can be added to existing designs without requiring an OS version upgrade, additional memory or faster processor. The Floodgate Agent provides security management for Icon Labs’ Floodgate Security Framework, a comprehensive security solution for embedded devices providing Secure Boot, Intrusion Detection, Application Guarding APIs, and an embedded firewall.
