Cirrent Integrates with Samsung ARTIK Platform

By Ken Briodagh May 17, 2017

Cirrent, a company that works with network providers to improve Wi-Fi for connected products, has announced that it will join Samsung’s ARTIK platform in order to bring its enhanced Wi-Fi configuration, connectivity and security solutions to IoT products on that platform.

According to the recent announcement, Cirrent technology will be integrated with the SAMSUNG ARTIK platform to make it easy for partner companies to bring ZipKey-enabled products to market. Through partnerships with network providers, Cirrent allows ZipKey-enabled products to connect automatically to the Internet, in order to make IoT products more secure and easier to use.

The Samsung ARTIK platform brings hardware modules and cloud services together with an ecosystem of tools and partners to speed up time-to-market of IoT products.

“With millions of potential IoT devices needing to be connected, ease of connectivity is critical,” said Eric Dewannain, Sr. Director, ARTIK Product Management, Samsung Strategy & Innovation Center. “With Cirrent’s offering, SAMSUNG ARTIK customers will have a broader set of best-in-class tools to speed up time-to-market and provide a greater user experience for the end customer.”

Faster, more secure connectivity can reduce support costs and product returns, offering a competitive advantage to product manufacturers.

“We are seeing tremendous growth in the deployment of connected products and 45 percent of U.S. broadband households are concerned that someone will get access to a smart home product,” said Patrice Samuels, Sr. Research Analyst, Parks Associates. “As these products become mainstream, ease of use and security will become even more important. The Cirrent technology with the ARTIK platform allows product developers to integrate these capabilities into their products, which will help alleviate consumer concerns and accelerate market adoption.”

ZipKey products provide a much better out-of-box experience, eliminate the need to remember complex Wi-Fi passwords, and in many cases automatically update the passwords when the home network changes.

“As the Internet of Things grows, companies will need end-to-end platforms like Samsung’s ARTIK platform, and end users will demand easy-to-use ZipKey products,” said Rob Conant, CEO, Cirrent. “Samsung shares our vision of putting the end consumer first, making product setup easy and making products secure, and with ZipKey support in the ARTIK platform, product companies can now bring easy-to-use, secure products to market faster.”
