Essence SigmaDots, the expert in IoT cybersecurity, has developed a comprehensive cybersecurity solution that harnesses the power of distributed architecture to completely secure IoT devices, applications, and data. The company is part of The Essence Group, a leading IoT solution provider pioneer, and was formed to share its IoT security expertise with the rest of the industry.
Product Adopted:Physical Security Information Management Software
Leveraging Essence Group’s 25 years of experience developing IoT cybersecurity for connected devices, Essence SigmaDots fully understands the need to secure IoT from within. By protecting the entire path - device, network, and system – Essence SigmaDots technology maximizes IoT security and minimizes the impact on the consumer. Recent reports on the multitudes of IoT hacks make this an urgent priority for the industry. Privacy commonly ranks as a top three priority for consumers of IoT devices.
The company grew out of Essence’s need and deep understanding of the IoT landscape; finding no sufficiently robust IoT cybersecurity solution in the market, Essence SigmaDots built its own.
“IoT is a challenging cybersecurity ecosystem –vulnerable devices have very limited, individual computational power and no operating system or communication protocol standards. Furthermore, the hacker’s resources are stronger than the defense that can be implemented on the edge device being attacked - a completely lopsided battle,” said Itsik Harpaz, CEO, Essence SigmaDots. “Moreover, statistics say that this year, 25 percent of attacks on the IT domain will start at the IoT edges. The industry needs to act now.”
As the first comprehensive, multilayered IoT cybersecurity platform, SigmaDots uses a fully embedded, distributed, and multilayered approach with low-cost, low-friction integration. The platform is comprised of four pillars: on-the-edge dynamic firewall and antivirus; distributed MQTT networking protocol as a service; end-to-end encryption as a service; and cloud-agnostic/on-premises platform for cyber-events, operational monitoring, and alerting. These pillars can be implemented independently or as a complete solution.
The Essence SigmaDots solution enables complete network visibility, delivering insights into attacks and suspicious activities to the SOC, allowing for faster response.
“Organizations incorporating our solution into their IoT systems almost completely eliminate consumers’ responsibility for security, building enhanced customer trust and loyalty,” said Dr. Haim Amir, founder and CEO, Essence Group “Furthermore, in enterprise and industrial settings, strong cybersecurity ensures service continuity in large-scale IoT deployments.”
