Looking to secure the data on your connected wearable device?

Maintaining Privacy in Connected Wearable Products

One of our core areas of expertise at BlueBridge Technologies is clinical grade wearable and near body medical devices. These wearable devices are typically wireless and often contain very personal information about the user’s health status and patterns of daily living. Because of this, wireless security and privacy is of critical importance. Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) is one of the main communication protocols used to connect with these wireless wearable devices. Because of our expertise in BLE and experience with wearable technologies, our team of highly-skilled connectivity experts have the knowledge and experience to ensure that communications are resilient, robust, secure and meets all of the regulatory requirements.

Spending Time Now To Save Time Later

Many manufacturers of wearable technology are keen to get their products to market as quickly as possible. As a result, data security is often included as an afterthought. This can expose devices/data to attacks such as a ‘man-in-the-middle’ attack and result in a data breach. For example, while the Bluetooth Core Specification 4.2 provides levels of security at different layers, often the lack of a standardised implementation leads to fundamental weaknesses within the realisation of the standard. At BlueBridge Technologies, we put the time, effort and resources in during the analysis and design phases, to reduce the potential for problems during the release and deployment phases.

Why Companies Choose BlueBridge Technologies

A major challenge for many customers is evaluating and selecting from the wide range of low-energy wireless protocols to meet their specific needs. Each protocol potentially has its own strengths and weaknesses. At BlueBridge Technologies, we work with you to identify the most suitable wireless protocols for your unique use cases. What’s more, we use our wealth of experience to do this in a way that reduces both your implementation costs and your product’s time to market.
