Mocana is partnering with Verizon to simplify the development of IoT applications with a pre-integrated security solution customized for a number of embedded systems and microcontrollers.
San Francisco-based Mocana provides mission-critical IoT security solutions for embedded systems, industrial controls and the Internet of Things (IoT).
Mocana will be integrating its endpoint security software solution, Mocana TrustPoint, with Verizon’s ThingSpace, a platform for IoT device connectivity, management, security, and analytics.
Integrating Mocana with Verizon ThingSpace will help customers to harden IoT devices by incorporating essential security (secure boot, secure update, intelligent firewall, security credentialing) into IoT devices that communicate with Verizon's cellular network.
Mocana claims that its flagship IoT endpoint security solution TrustPoint provides compliant security that protects more than 100 million mission-critical devices for the industry’s largest industrial and IoT manufacturers.
Combining Mocana TrustPoint with Verizon’s deep network security and managed security offerings simplifies the management of the IoT security lifecycle to improve supply chain integrity, said the Company.
According to Verizon’s 2018 Data Breach Investigations Report, 48% of data breaches involved hacking. With billions of IoT connected devices deployed and being introduced, manufacturers and IoT service providers need an easier way to scale the management IoT security.
