Mocana Honored for Innovation in IoT Security with 2020 IoT Breakthrough Award Win

Annual IoT Breakthrough Awards Program Recognizes Standout Internet-of-Things Companies and Products

.

Sunnyvale, Calif. — January 3, 2020 – Mocana Corporation (Mocana), the leading provider of integrated device security solutions for IoT and control systems, today announced that it has been selected as the winner of the “IoT Security Product of the Year” award in the 4th annual IoT Breakthrough Awards program from IoT Breakthrough, a leading market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global Internet-of-Things (IoT) market today.

The expanding volume and complexity of IoT devices and the industrial control systems (ICS) used to manage them has rendered traditional network-based endpoint threat detection and response approaches to operational technology security incomplete. This reality is compounded by the fact that millions of insecure legacy devices already exist within these networks.

Mocana’s solution enables enterprises to simply and securely scale the management of IoT and IIoT devices from inception to end-of-life, enabling self-protecting devices and systems that can be remotely managed, and both automatically and securely updated are able to fight these trends.

Mocana’s solution includes TrustPoint™ and TrustCenter™. TrustPoint is an on-device security software solution that simplifies and lowers the cost of protecting devices and managing the security lifecycle. It works in concert with TrustCenter, the first security orchestration platform focused entirely on IoT/IIoT devices. Combined, these products ensure that devices are trusted and tamper-proof with credentials and software updates that are provisioned and managed to minimize vulnerabilities and promote scalability.

“Since 2002, Mocana has provided the strongest level of cybersecurity for mission-critical devices for both military and commercial enterprises, and they continue to innovate in today’s modern world of connected consumer IoT and Industrial IoT,” said James Johnson, managing director at IoT Breakthrough. “Their solutions truly breakthrough the market helping enterprises realize the benefits of digital transformation without compromising security which protects families, companies, cities and countries. We congratulate them on their well-deserved award win and we look forward to future growth in their security product line in the IoT space.”

The mission of the IoT Breakthrough Awards program is to recognize the innovators, leaders and visionaries from around the globe in a range of IoT categories, including Industrial and Enterprise IoT, Smart City technology, Connected Home and Home Automation, Connected Car, and many more. This year’s program attracted more than 3,700 nominations from companies all over the world.

“Our lives depend on consumer IoT and IIoT devices to function as designed and deliver accurate data - from voice-controlled personal assistants, utility delivery systems, medical devices, airplane avionics, traffic control and military systems and much more,” says Dave Smith, President of Mocana. “The list of applications is long and keeping these critical devices safe and secure is of paramount importance and with Mocana the security controls required to protect these devices are no longer an afterthought. We are extremely proud to receive this significant industry award designation from IoT Breakthrough in recognition of our hard work and success in the IoT security space.”

Mocana offers a comprehensive platform-based solution to protect the entire supply chain from embedded chips to the applications that drive them. Mocana is the market leader with more than 200 customers and 100M IoT/IIoT devices protected.
