Mocana Introduces Automated Security Lifecycle Management to Simplify and Scale IoT Security

New Mocana TrustCenter™ Services Platform Ensures Supply Chain Integrity and Improves the Safety and Reliability of Mission-Critical IoT and Industrial Control Systems

SAN FRANCISCO – April 11, 2018 – Mocana Corporation, the leading provider of mission-critical IoT security solutions for industrial control systems and the Internet of Things, announced the launch of Mocana TrustCenter™, the industry’s first services platform that provides a comprehensive system to manage security across the lifecycle of IoT devices and industrial control systems (ICS). Developed for manufacturers and operators of IoT devices and industrial equipment, Mocana TrustCenter ensures supply chain integrity, offering full management of cybersecurity across the entire IoT device security lifecycle – embedded systems and software development, manufacturing, device enrollment, and secure firmware updates. The new services platform complements Mocana’s industry-leading TrustPoint™ IoT endpoint security software that protects more than 100 million devices today.

“Traditional IT and OT security approaches are not enough to defend against the sophisticated threats from hackers and state actors,” said William Diotte, CEO, Mocana. “With escalating cyber attacks on critical infrastructure and IoT, it’s imperative that industrial companies implement stronger controls in their automation and control equipment. Mocana TrustCenter and TrustPoint make it easier to implement strong security into devices by automating the lifecycle of cybersecurity for a device. We’re thrilled that Mocana TrustCenter has the support of major industry leaders such as Intel, Dell, and Verizon.”

Mocana's TrustCenter automated services platform can be deployed on bare metal, private cloud, or public cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and ensures the trustworthiness of both the device and the data from end-to-end. Mocana TrustCenter’s automated approach reduces the time it takes to install secure credentials on a device from minutes to seconds. The platform automates secure device onboarding, enrollment and over-the-air (OTA) updates for IoT and ICS. Mission-critical systems used in aerospace, defense, industrial manufacturing, transportation, medical, and automotive will benefit from Mocana TrustCenter by automating the IoT security software integration process.

Mocana’s TrustCenter™ has been integrated with the Intel® Secure Device Onboard (Intel® SDO) service to reduce the time it takes to automate provisioning of secure credentials onto devices based on Intel® Enhanced Privacy ID (Intel® EPID) identity built into the silicon.

“The onboarding process for IoT devices will not scale without automation of the enrollment process that Intel SDO delivers combined with the built-in privacy model of Intel EPID. Mocana TrustCenter automated security integrated with Intel SDO dramatically reduces the onboarding and digital certificate provisioning time to drive scale,” said Lorie Wigle, VP Product Management, Platform Security Division, Intel.

Key benefits of Mocana’s IoT Trust Platform include:

  • Supply Chain Integrity: Mocana’s IoT Trust Platform ensures that devices and data are trusted. Using strong cybersecurity controls on the endpoints and the Mocana TrustCenter services platform, customers are able to securely manage the enrollment and firmware update process across the entire ecosystem: silicon vendor, device manufacturer, integrator and operator/end user.
  • Faster Development and Provisioning: Mocana’s TrustPoint endpoint software provides a full-stack architecture for protecting endpoints with FIPS 140-2 Level 1 validated cryptography for securing the boot process, authentication, device and data integrity and secure transport. It is pre-integrated with more than 70 chipsets and 30 real-time operating systems. Mocana’s easy-to-use APIs make it easy to integrate TrustPoint with embedded applications and hardware. The Mocana TrustCenter “zero touch” security services platform reduces onboarding and enrollment of devices by more than 90% to mere seconds per device.
  • Lower Cost: Mocana’s end-to-end security lifecycle solution provides a system of cybersecurity for developers, OEMs, and device owners to reduce the time and resources to implement and manage security on IoT and ICS endpoints. Mocana TrustPoint’s proven embedded security software and development framework reduces the time and cost to build strong security into devices. Mocana TrustCenter automates device enrollment and secures the update process to enable billions of devices to be securely manufactured, activated and updated.

“Supply chain integrity is one of the most important challenges facing the industrial IoT,” said Ed Amoroso, CEO of TAG Cyber, LLC. “Mocana’s IoT Trust Platform is tackling this problem head on by automating device enrollment and security provisioning. With tools for both suppliers and OEMs, Mocana’s trust services will simplify enrollment and secure updates.”

“Ensuring the safety, security, and reliability of control systems is critical,” said Joe Weiss, Managing Partner of Applied Control Solutions, LLC. “Mocana’s IoT Trust Platform can simplify the implementation of security across modern control and safety systems.

Mocana will be providing demonstrations of Mocana TrustCenter at the annual RSA Conference in San Francisco at booth #3143 in Moscone North on April 17, 18, and 19. Mocana will be co-presenting with Intel at RSA on Tuesday, April 17 at 12:30pm PT at Intel Booth #3435 on “Securing the Lifecycle of an IoT Device with Mocana.”
