Sectigo 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.
As IoT adoption grows, the trend is to put more intelligence on the edge through smarter, more capable devices, extending and expanding the traditional enterprise IT infrastructure beyond a data center or cloud environment. The addition of elements like trucks, containers, kiosks, warehouses, and more creates an ecosystem of edge devices that not only collect and disseminate data, but also now perform highly complex tasks like AI at the outer reaches of the network.
With the proliferation of more edge devices, the risk of a data breach only multiplies for enterprises. Last year, there were 1,244 data breaches, exposing 446.5 million records.
Through collaboration, both companies will be able to deliver enhanced security in all products and solutions. The combined solution includes the following security features:
- Enterprise-grade PKI solution for strong authentication
- Secure boot for NetObjex’s edge devices
- Secure firmware updates utilizing signing firmware
- Secure communication using mutual authentication
