Internet of Things (IoT) security provider, Mocana is partnering with Schneider Electric to offer a Security of Things Platform (SoTP) in their automated systems and energy management solutions.

The partnership will enable standardization and uniformity across Schneider; they will take advantage of Mocana’s trusted, next-generation security package, solving security issues device manufacturers face.

“With Mocana’s Security of Things Platform, we are able to maintain consistency in our security approaches, across any type of device or sensor, addressing the variance of real-time operating systems (RTOS), controllers and CPUs. Mocana brings strong FIPS-140 proven cryptography to our embedded devices all the way up to the cloud, enabling a safer path to IoT transformation for our connected business strategy,” said George Wrenn, vice president of Global Cybersecurity for Schneider.

“As more manufactures move into the IoT space, the level of urgency in securing their products have increased exponentially,” said Peter Graham, vice president of Mocana.
