Mocana Recognized as Industry Leader in Cybersecurity and the Industrial Internet of Things

SUNNYVALE, Calif., June 03, 2020 – Mocana Corporation, a leading provider of integrated device security solutions for IoT and control systems, has been recognized as one of the Top 10 companies to follow by Cybercrime Magazine.  In another industry ranking, the company was cited by influencer research service Onalytica as a Top 50 global brand influencer for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).

 

“As hackers grow more daring and sophisticated, robust security measures are a must for any business,” Cybercrime Magazine reported. “The companies that provide the tools and services to fight these threats are likewise continually improving. To know how to defend your business and clients best, you need to be aware of cybersecurity industry leaders.”

Mocana was lauded for its alternative approach to standard security strategies based on threat detection.  Instead, the company was showcased for offering a “proactive, preventative” solution for a variety industrial, military, business, government, and consumer sectors. 

“The wider global application of IIoT in the process industries and critical infrastructure has significantly heightened our awareness of risk,” said Dave Smith, president of Mocana. “The threat now comes from many sources, including cybercriminals, nation-states and insiders. Reactive cybersecurity strategies are simply not enough to thwart the increasing sophistication of attack methods. Protection has to be built in to systems and devices to create an impenetrable hardened core.”

In another key industry recognition, Mocana was listed among the Top 50 IIoT brands by Onalytica, a company that provides market intelligence on global influencers and brands. Onalytica analyzed 2.2 million posts on social media and blogs to identify companies that demonstrate leadership and engagement on topics related to the transformative solutions of an interconnected industrial and consumer world.
