Mocana Corporation, which is a provider of mission-critical IoT security solutions for industrial control systems and the IoT, has launched the Mocana TrustCenter. This platform is the industry’s first services platform that provides a comprehensive system to manage security across the lifecycle of IoT devices and industrial control systems (ICS).
Created for manufacturers and operators of IoT devices and industrial equipment Mocana TrustCenter ensures supply chain integrity. The TrustCenter accomplishes this by offering full management of cyber security across the entire IoT device security lifecycle. The platform features embedded systems, software development, manufacturing, device enrollment and secure firmware updates. Some of the key benefits of Mocana’s IoT Trust Platform are supply chain integrity, faster development and provisioning and also lower cost.
The new services platform can be partnered with Mocana’s industry-leading TrustPoint IoT endpoint security software that protects more than 100 million devices currently.
“Traditional IT and OT security approaches are not enough to defend against the sophisticated threats from hackers and state actors,” said William Diotte, CEO, Mocana Corporation. “With escalating cyber attacks on critical infrastructure and IoT, it’s imperative that industrial companies implement stronger controls in their automation and control equipment. Mocana TrustCenter and TrustPoint make it easier to implement strong security into devices by automating the lifecycle of cybersecurity for a device. We’re thrilled that Mocana TrustCenter has the support of major industry leaders such as Intel, Dell, and Verizon.”
Where can it be deployed? The company’s TrustCenter automated services platform can be utilized on bare metal, private cloud, or public cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and ensures the trustworthiness of both the device and the data from end-to-end. Mocana TrustCenter’s automated approach reduces the time it takes to install secure credentials on a device from minutes to mere seconds. The platform automates secure device onboarding, enrollment and over-the-air (OTA) updates for IoT and ICS.
What industries are the TrustCenter the most beneficial for? Mission-critical systems used in aerospace, defense, industrial manufacturing, transportation, medical, and automotive will benefit from Mocana TrustCenter by automating the IoT security software integration process.
“The onboarding process for IoT devices will not scale without automation of the enrollment process that Intel SDO delivers combined with the built-in privacy model of Intel EPID. Mocana TrustCenter automated security integrated with Intel SDO dramatically reduces the onboarding and digital certificate provisioning time to drive scale,” said Lorie Wigle, VP of product management, Platform Security Division, Intel.
Mocana prides itself on providing mission-critical IoT security solutions for embedded systems, industrial controls and the Internet of Things (IoT).
