SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - September 01, 2016) - Mocana, a leading provider of industrial-strength security technology for mission-critical IoT and industrial cloud systems, today announced that it has joined the Industrial Internet Consortium, the global, public-private organization formed to accelerate adoption and enablement of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Mocana will participate actively in the IIC's Security Working Group to contribute its expertise and support the adoption of the Consortium's common security framework.
Mocana's embedded security solution is used today by many IIC members to provide core security functions in their devices and services. Mocana's modular Security of Things Platform (SoTP) provides a full suite of security services -- including cryptography, certificate management, secure boot and update, secure communications, trust anchor interface and more -- delivered via highly efficient code that can be used with any CPU and OS. Major industrial organizations use the Mocana Platform to implement a device-to-cloud architecture that normalizes security and harmonizes development across product lines, divisions and ecosystems.
"We are thrilled to work with leaders in the industrial IoT space and excited to contribute our security expertise and gain from the perspectives of other members," said Dean Weber, Mocana CTO. Weber continued, "We believe that membership in the IIC will allow us to help raise the bar for industrial internet security practices and help us to ensure that our technology enables adoption and use of these critical industry standards."
"The continuing explosion of connected devices is causing huge risks to plant personnel to society and the environment at large," said Dr. Richard Soley, Executive Director, Industrial Internet Consortium. "At the IIC, we take these risks seriously and we look forward to the expertise Mocana brings in industrial-strength security technology for device-to-cloud architectures to help protect Industrial organizations."
Mocana provides the Mocana Security of Things Platform -- a high-performance, ultra-optimized, OS-independent, high-assurance security solution for any device class. The Platform is being rapidly adopted by next-gen IoT device designers who demand architectural freedom, and who understand the complexity and risk exposure inherent in in-house and other solutions. Mocana's award-winning cryptographic solutions are used in the most stringently-constrained and life-critical systems by Fortune 500 companies, world-leading smart device manufacturers, and government agencies. www.mocana.com
