Mocana's cybersecurity platform provides industrial manufacturers with a comprehensive, device-to-cloud IoT security solution that ensures device-level integrity

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Aug. 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of Internet of Things (IoT) security platforms for industrial manufacturing and automation, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Mocana with the 2017 North American Product Leadership Award. Mocana's IoT security platform is one of the most flexible and comprehensive platforms available, boasting a full-stack of differentiated IoT security features. It employs a unique device-to-cloud security model that outperforms traditional perimeter-based security approaches by delivering device-level integrity.

Unlike other IoT security solutions that protect the gateway to the cloud but leave all other devices and industrial control systems exposed to cybersecurity threats, Mocana's software can be easily embedded in devices, on the gateway, and in the cloud. In this way, Mocana provides unprotected devices and endpoints that have minimal CPU and memory with the ability to authenticate to a network using an X.509 certificate and to encrypt data at rest and in flight.

Mocana strives to stay relevant in a rapidly evolving market by constantly upgrading its products. For instance, the latest iteration of its platform has two additional functionalities that enable easy integration of hardware-secure elements and a scalable standards-based approach to certificate enrollment and management. Recently, Mocana announced the introduction of an IoT security development kit that allows developers new to IoT security to use sample applications and test cryptographic controls on a resource-constrained IoT device.
