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

Delivering a portfolio of technology solutions to protect the device, data, cloud and user

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - July 24, 2017) - Mocana, a leading provider of mission-critical security solutions for industrial control systems (ICS) and the Internet of Things (IoT) and Gemalto, the world leader in digital security, announce a 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.

For demonstrations on the Gemalto and Mocana solutions, visit booth 1236 at Black Hat 2017 from July 26th -27th.

Gemalto and Mocana will leverage their unique solutions and global ecosystems to make 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.
