Radios Motorola has unveiled a powerful new division of devices that can connect to the internet and talk to each other over Bluetooth. These devices include Bluetooth speakers like the Motorola Xoom, and also your standard home base station such as the XT1550.
The wireless world is moving forward, and we need to keep up with it by staying safe and connected wherever we go. That’s why Motorola has innovated again with its new UP-to-the-minute Radio division – giving you access to all of your favorite music in high quality anywhere in the world.
Motorola has developed a new device, the Motorola XT1550, which makes this possible. It connects to your home base station using radio waves to broadcast music, so you can stream music from your devices in the highest quality.
It works together with the new Motorola Xoom – a tablet that can be paired with any Bluetooth device, allowing you to have clear connections wherever you are in the world.
The Motorola Xoom has been designed to be powerful yet portable. Its sleek design makes it easy to carry around and use anywhere, allowing people to stay connected even when they’re on the go.
It runs on Android Honeycomb 3.1, which means it has an upgraded interface that works smoothly with Motorola’s new UP-to-the-minute Radio division.
The Xoom lets you easily access the internet with your favorite apps, plus Motorola’s customized version of Google Maps is available so you can plan your trips using the best tools. The Xoom also has a front-facing camera to take pictures or record video and features a multi-touch display that allows users to zoom in, zoom out or rotate images without having to press any buttons.
The Xoom is water-resistant and designed for people who are always on the go. It can withstand up to 30 minutes in 1 meter of water.
Two company’s separate yet connected products allow you to stay connected wherever you are, with the best music anywhere in the world.
Motorola sent out an email to their customers saying they made a mistake and the radio devices interfere with each other so now Motorola is reissuing all of their radio devices with no Bluetooth capability for free for everyone.
The devices (and their users) of the future will be connected wirelessly to the Internet and each other. The “internet of things” is currently one of the fastest-growing areas in technology and promises to bring us all closer together through information and convenience. It represents the new frontier in the communications and entertainment industries. But it also represents a security risk. A new problem: Too many things connected to each other, and not enough people working on maintaining the security of those devices.
The security of what will become physical objects connected with software that communicates over WiFi or cellular networks will require a new approach to computer security such as Network Device Hardening (NDoH).
Network Device Hardening is a proactive approach to software security that brings the same security measures long in use in the computer security world to networked embedded devices. NDoH consists of preventing unauthorized access by controlling who or what is allowed to connect through physical device characteristics, software settings, and embedded software, especially when it comes to secure communications. This can include anything from something as small as an embedded system in a pacemaker to something larger like a network switch, or anything in between.
Overview of NDoH Approach
A hardware firewall restricts which machines can connect with an embedded device. A router is used to control the flow of traffic into and out of the network port on the device. Devices that require authentication are often hardened to use that instead of default passwords. Secure communications can be provided using SSH, SSL, VPNs, IPSec, and any other number of secure protocols.
Devices become more valuable when they are valuable to others. The more valuable the devices become the greater the potential for loss or damage. A security risk occurs when an attacker with malicious intent has physical access to a device yet is not physically able to insert malicious software. This is where NDoH comes in handy.
