Over-the-air (OTA) updates are software updates for devices or systems that are delivered wirelessly, typically through a wireless network or cellular connection.
Over-the-air (OTA) updates are a critical aspect of cybersecurity in the Internet of Things (IoT) industry. They refer to software updates that are delivered wirelessly to devices or systems, often through a wireless network or cellular connection. OTA updates are important for maintaining the security and functionality of IoT devices, as they can be used to patch vulnerabilities, fix bugs, and address other security issues. Without OTA updates, IoT devices may be left vulnerable to cyber attacks and data breaches. The use of OTA updates requires specialized security controls and technologies, as well as policies and procedures to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information. As the number of connected devices in the IoT ecosystem continues to grow, the need for secure and efficient OTA updates will only become more important.
