IoT security management by Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity, & Arkessa

June 14, 2017 // By Graham Prophet
M2M-managed-services specialist Arkessa (Cambridge, UK) and the Cybersecurity division of Rohde & Schwarz (Leipzig, Germany) have jointly developed an IoT connectivity and security platform.

Described as ‘multi-level’, the IoT platform provides full visibility and control of enterprises’ IoT operations with secure, backdoor-free, globally-managed IP connectivity. It aims to enable secure interactions across digital ecosystems of devices, people and systems.

 

The joint solution offers a single platform for managing the security and connectivity of all IoT operations. The service provides three distinct advantages: Customers can manage global IoT deployment scenarios via a single dashboard, gain full – packet by packet – visibility of IoT network traffic and proactively protect IoT networks with advanced OT [operational technology] & IT firewalling functions.

 

The use cases for this unique IoT solution range from connected vending machines, connected vehicles to critical infrastructure and mobile wireless access points.

 

“We are thrilled to be working with Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity, that develops and produces technologically leading IT security solutions. Together we can offer enterprises a ‘single pane of glass’ for all connected devices with an unparalleled opportunity to act on security threats. The combination of management, detection and protection capabilities for global IoT operations is critical and powerful,” said Andrew Orrock, CEO of Arkessa.

 

“We have seen a continued demand for European OT-ready security solutions. At the same time, customers were hesitant to change when traditional solutions were not addressing the risks posed by the thousands of devices connecting back to the core over standard internet connections only. This collaboration with Arkessa provides our customers with a unique opportunity to securely scale their IoT operations globally, with a security layer spanning from the network core to every single asset deployed in the field,” said Henning Ogberg, SVP Sales & Marketing of Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity.
