Scott is responsible for architecture and development of Zymbit’s embedded security systems. He knows that the next wave of devices connected to big data can only be successful if they are built on solid and secure design foundations. He’s excited by the opportunities that IoT can bring but a realist about the threats and realities of the ‘real world’. At Zymbit he’s on a mission to deliver fundamental building blocks that enable products to be practically secure, easy to deploy and scale.
