Mocana Named Most Innovative Security Company in 2017 Leading Lights Awards

Company Recognized for Innovative Platform that Gives IoT Devices Power to Defend Themselves Against Cyberattacks

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - May 23, 2017) - Mocana Corporation, a leading provider of mission-critical IoT security solutions for industrial control systems and the Internet of Things, today announced that the company has been named a winner in the 2017 Leading Lights Awards in the Most Innovative Security Strategy category. This award is presented to communications service providers, systems integrators and technology developers that have unveiled the most innovative security strategy during the past year. The company was recognized for the Mocana IoT Security Platform, a comprehensive full-stack security solution that gives industrial IoT devices, industrial clouds and device-to-cloud communications the power to defend themselves against cyberattacks.

"Mocana is honored to be recognized by Light Reading, one of the preeminent voices in the communications industry, for the unique way in which we are securing IoT devices and systems for hundreds of companies and millions of devices," said William Diotte, CEO of Mocana. "This validation for our platform approach to IoT further highlights the impact we've had on customers and partners that have turned to us to address end-to-end security demands."

The Mocana platform provides a full-stack solution for securing IoT systems from the endpoint, to the gateway, to the cloud and back again. Mocana is solving one of the biggest challenges of defending against cyberattacks: enabling devices to defend themselves once a hacker gets behind a firewall or gains access to a computer on the inside of a private network. The platform ensures that both the device and its data can be trusted, by securing the boot process and firmware, and securing the transmission of data between the device, gateway and cloud. Hundreds of companies, including GE, General Dynamics, Panasonic, Schneider Electric, Siemens and Yokogawa have integrated Mocana into industrial cloud systems to provide security, reliability and defense against sophisticated cyber attacks.

Now in its 13th year, Leading Lights is the communications industry's leading awards program, recognizing top companies and executives for their outstanding achievements in next-generation communications technology, applications, services, strategies and innovations.
