CENTRI Consortium Coalescence

CENTRI, a provider of advanced security for the Internet of Things (IoT), 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.

According to Vaughan Emery, the CEO and President, CENTRI Technology, 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. CENTRI IoTAS is purpose-built for IoT 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.
