Finding the key to security in a connected world
Intellectual property (IP) is a big part of the business for local start-up MicroSec, which tackles security for Internet of Things networks through its proprietary software. In the last of a four-part series, MicroSec co-founder and chief executive Vishram Mishra talks to Jacqueline Woo about its IP journey and plans for growth

Internet of Things devices only have so much bandwidth and power. MicroSec is developing security solutions small enough to fit these constraints but strong enough to withstand attacks.
