Mocana Teams Up with Gemalto to Secure IoT from End to End

By

Mocana, a provider of critical security solutions for industrial control systems (ICS) and the Internet of Things (IoT) and Gemalto, a leader in IoT and digital security, have together announced a new 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.

“Hundreds of manufacturers and IoT companies use Mocana’s specialist endpoint security products to harden devices and improve performance,” said Sebastien Cano, EVP, Enterprise and Cybersecurity, Gemalto. “With this collaboration, we are providing our customers with a common platform to centrally manage the security and crypto policies for devices, furthering our goal of bringing trust to an increasingly connected world.”

Gemalto and Mocana will leverage their solutions and global ecosystems with the goal of making 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: device identity provisioning and management

•           Key and certificate management: key and certificate management for endpoints, gateway and clouds

•           Device integrity: advanced controls for secure boot and secure update to ensure device and supply chain integrity

•           Multi-factor authentication: ability to support multi-factor authentication across manufacturers, end users and service providers

•           Assured interoperability: validated interoperability of Mocana’s IoT Security Platform with Gemalto’s Safenet HSMs and Cinterion secure elements

•           Secure transport: secured communications for a wide range of industry standard networking protocols (cellular, LoRA, standard network transport protocols)

•           Security lifecycle management: key lifecycle management and crypto policies for the devices

•           Monetization: ability to dynamically enable and disable billable device features and service capabilities based on business policies.

“Ensuring the safety and reliability of connected devices is more important than ever,” said Bill Diotte, CEO, Mocana. “Partnering with Gemalto will make it easier for device manufacturers and cloud providers to secure device identities, incorporate strong hardware-based roots of trust, and integrate proven cybersecurity software controls into applications embedded in IoT devices and critical infrastructure.”
