Mocana, provider of mission-critical security solutions for industrial control systems (ICS) and the Internet of Things (IoT) and Gemalto, vendor of digital security offerings, announced Monday a partnership to bring connectivity, security and monetization to IoT deployments.
The two companies will provide an end-to-end solution for IoT security lifecycle management, including interoperability of Mocana’s IoT Security Platform and Gemalto’s digital security products to protect data and digital identities across endpoint devices, gateways and clouds. Combining the companies’ respective areas of expertise makes it easier for manufacturers, enterprises and service providers to build strong security into IoT devices and critical infrastructure that are vulnerable to cyber-attacks.
Gemalto and Mocana will leverage solutions and global ecosystems to make it easier to embed advanced cybersecurity technologies into IoT devices, industrial control systems, and machine-to-machine (M2M) networks. Customers will have access to a complete IoT security solution including identity provisioning through device identity provisioning and management; key and certificate management for endpoints, gateway and clouds, with advanced controls for secure boot and secure update to ensure device and supply chain integrity.
The alliance will also deliver multi-factor authentication with the ability to support multi-factor authentication across manufacturers, end users and service providers; validated interoperability of Mocana’s IoT Security Platform with Gemalto’s Safenet HSMs and Cinterion secure elements; secured communications for a range of industry standard networking protocols including cellular, LoRA and standard network transport protocols; key lifecycle management and crypto policies for the devices; and the ability to dynamically enable and disable billable device features and service capabilities based on business policies.
