The Kudelski Group, digital security company, and Sequans Communications, a provider of LTE for IoT semiconductor solutions, reportedly has created a secure connectivity solution for LTE-M and NB-IoT devices.
When combined with a SIM card or eSIM personalized with the Kudelski Root of Trust, the joint solution is designed to provide robust device identity and protects the device, data, decisions, commands and actions in ultra-small and power-efficient connected devices.
The two companies are combining Sequans’s LTE-M/NB-IoT chips with Kudelski’s security solution. They will securely connect millions of industrial, medical, consumer and automotive devices to the customer’s cloud platform of choice.
The Kudelski Group and Sequans integration removes barriers to entry and shortens time to market for device manufacturers. They accomplish this by providing a single-chip solution pre-integrated with security and connectivity, protecting the entire security lifecycle of the device.
"With ABI Research predicting 6.3 billion IoT devices to be cellularly connected by 2021, telco network operators need to onboard them in a way that is secure, scalable and sustainable. Our work with Sequans will combine their smart connectivity with our proven security technology to enable operators to onboard IoT devices quickly and easily. This creates greater efficiency and gives them the security required to protect the network and enable exciting new customer business models,” said Jean-Michel Puiatti, senior vice president, IoT Security, Kudelski Group.
The Kudelski IoT Security Platform is a universal platform implemented in different ecosystems with different partners. This platform has already been adopted by telco, industrial, consumer electronics and medical IoT partners and clients.
“The Kudelski IoT Security Platform is a comprehensive solution that provides powerful security features to a wide range of IoT applications. Security of both device and application data is of paramount importance in IoT and we are pleased to partner with The Kudelski Group to integrate their powerful and proven IoT security client into our Monarch product line and make it available to our customers,” said Hugues Waldburger, VP, Vertical and Strategic Business Unit, Sequans Communications.
