These statements are not guarantees of performance and are subject to risks and uncertainties. Actual results may differ materially due to factors such as: the Corporation's reliance on contracts with the U.S. Government, all of which are conditioned upon the availability of funding; declining budgets; affordability initiatives; the implementation of automatic sequestration under the Budget Control Act of 2011; U.S. Government operations under a continuing resolution or the failure to adopt a budget which may cause contracts to be delayed, canceled or funded at lower levels; risks related to the development, performance, schedule, cost and requirements of complex and technologically advanced programs including the Corporation's largest, the F-35 program; economic, industry, business and political conditions (domestic and international) including their effects on governmental policy; the Corporation's success in growing international sales and expanding into adjacent markets and risks associated with doing business in new markets and internationally; the competitive environment for the Corporation's products and services, competition from outside the aerospace and defense industry, and increased bid protests; planned production rates for significant programs and compliance with stringent performance and reliability standards; the Corporation's ability to implement and continue capitalization changes such as share repurchase activity, payment of dividends (including, in the event of a deficit in stockholders' equity, the availability of sufficient net earnings to permit such distributions under Maryland law), pension funding and/or debt activity as well as the pace and effect of any such capitalization changes; the accuracy of the Corporation's estimates and projections; interest rate and other changes that may affect pension plans assumptions, stockholder's equity, the level of FAS/CAS earnings and actual return on pension plan assets; and realizing the anticipated benefits of acquisitions or divestitures, ventures, teaming arrangements or internal reorganizations, and the Corporation's efforts to increase the efficiency of its operations and improve the affordability of its products and services. These are only some of the factors that may affect the forward-looking statements contained in this news release. For a discussion identifying additional important factors that could cause actual results to vary materially from those anticipated in the forward-looking statements, see the Corporation's filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) including the Corporation's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended Dec. 31, 2015 and quarterly reports on Form 10-Q.

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards.

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
