SEATTLE, Nov. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- CENTRI, a provider of advanced security for the Internet of Things, today announced it has joined the Industrial Internet Consortium® (IIC), a global, member-supported, organization that promotes the accelerated growth of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).
CENTRI Internet of Things Advanced Security – IoTAS, offers companies looking to secure their IoT devices and data in motion and at rest, a complete solution that meets the unique requirements of low-power equipment and chipsets. IoTAS also solves the security challenge for companies as it protects IoT data in the Cloud in multi-tenant and shared environments. The solution operates in cache memory for lower CPU utilization, heat reduction and increased uptime of devices. Unlike legacy security tools designed for the anonymous Web, CENTRI IoTAS delivers a platform that is purpose-built for the trusted, known endpoints of IoT.
"The Internet of Things needs a much different kind of security, not the same old tools companies have used in the past to secure data between laptops, desktops and browsers," said Vaughan Emery, CEO and President, CENTRI Technology. "CENTRI IoTAS is purpose-built for Internet of Things and is the simplest way for developers to include end-to-end data encryption, optimization, device authentication and complete visibility with forensics and analytics for IoT projects. We look forward to contributing to the Industrial Internet Consortium to help educate audiences on this new paradigm of security."
"Cloud data security is critical to companies today," said Dr. Richard Soley, Executive Director, Industrial Internet Consortium. "We're excited to have CENTRI working with us as we define ways to help enterprises protect their cloud data and secure IoT devices."
CENTRI provides advanced security for the Internet of Things. Our technology helps organizations secure what matters most in IoT – their data. CENTRI reduces the risk of data theft and loss of equipment command by establishing trusted devices and advanced encryption technology while retaining complete visibility to all activity. CENTRI maximizes IoT device uptime and protects the data in transit, at rest and on the endpoint. For more information visit centritechnology.com or email us at email@example.com.
