Collaboration combines embedded device hardening, certificates, AI, and blockchain to protect against data breaches and botnet attacks
Sectigo (formerly Comodo CA), has announced a secure edge computing technology pact with NetObjex, an Intelligent Automation Platform for tracking, tracing, and monitoring digital assets using AI, Blockchain, and Internet of Things (IoT).
The collaboration provides enterprises and manufacturers with a secured, trusted computing infrastructure that extends from IoT edge devices to the cloud and blockchain.
With the proliferation of more edge devices such as trucks, kiosks and warehouses, the risk of a data breach is multiplying for enterprises. Last year in the USA alone, there were 1,244 data breaches, exposing 446.5 million records.
“By collaborating with Sectigo, we can extend our comprehensive platform and offer enhanced security to our enterprise customers,” said Raghu Bala, CEO, NetObjex.
“The growth of edge devices has increased the risk of devastating data breaches. Offering Sectigo’s embedded device hardening technologies and purpose-built third-party certificate issuance and management allows enterprises to protect their important data.”
The Sectigo and NetObjex partnership brings to market products and solutions that comprehensively address this problem, reducing the risk of security compromises to data and firmware logic. This enhanced security fulfills a growing need in the market as enterprises increase investments in IoT, AI, and blockchain, which all thrive on clean, pristine data.
“With the growth of IoT and the rising cost of data breaches, enterprises need a secure computing infrastructure more than ever,” said Damon Kachur, Vice President, IoT Solutions, Sectigo. “This partnership combines the strengths of Sectigo and NetObjex to deliver a truly robust security infrastructure that addresses an acute need for enterprises.”
