SD: What do you think are the worst cyberthreats today?
Cardlatch: Physical security was left behind, there is a real need for a zero-trust physical security platform on the market.
The current systems lack security features, are easily hacked, lack operation agility, and cannot deliver customer freedom in choosing vendors. The whole industry relies on hardware innovation that cannot be updated and managed over time against the hackers that crack those boxes. The only way forward is using software for a quick and refreshing security update.
