“Receiving the IoT Security Platform of the Year Award is a true testament to our solution and how it is answering a major market need for our global customer base,” said William Diotte, CEO of Mocana. “As the attack surface for IoT continues expanding, enterprises need to get better about both defending the network AND protecting the devices themselves, which is why a build-in IoT Security approach is necessary to stop future attacks.”

This year’s program attracted more than 3,000 nominations from companies all over the world. All nominations were reviewed and evaluated by an independent panel of experts within IoT industry, with the highest scored nomination selected as winner for each category.

“While the benefits of Internet-of-Things products and services are clear, it is also abundantly clear that there are very real and critical security vulnerabilities associated with IoT implementations,” said James Johnson, managing director, IoT Breakthrough. “The Mocana IoT Security Platform provides a comprehensive security solution for industrial IoT devices and industrial clouds, delivering deep cybersecurity to protect IoT implementations.
