IQRF technology did excellently at SCADA Security Conference

18 October 2017

Participants at SCADA Security Conference has an opportunity to learn more about strengths of the IQRF wireless technology.

Vladimír Šulc, CEO of IQRF Tech, briefly introduced the IQRF wireless technology. Furthermore, he enumerated some of IQRF security benefits.

In the beginning, Mr. Šulc talked about specific uses of wired and wireless solutions and how they complement each other. There are some cases where you can't use one or the other. So, these technologies should have the same level of quality of all their features. However, naturally the wireless technology is in slight disadvantage because attackers don't have to have physical access to the devices in order to harm.

Therefore, IQRF Tech thinks about safety first. IQRF wireless technology has been developed with an emphasis on safety and this is why you can use it in solutions where other wireless technologies can't provide you with high enough level of security.

In conclusion, Mr. Šulc shared his rich experience from area of wireless technologies with participants of SCADA Security Conference and proved that IQRF wireless technology can ensure same security level as wired technologies.
