Investors Deepen Commitment to Technology Used to Protect Millions of IoT Devices and Industrial Control Systems
“Mocana is on a mission to fundamentally change how the industry thinks about security by shifting focus from perimeter-based approaches to actually embedding trust inside devices to ensure secure device-to-cloud communications,” Alberto Yépez, chairman of the board, Mocana and managing director, Trident Capital. “To achieve this, Mocana has been building out its executive team to steer the company into a stage of high-growth to support its strong customer base that includes the world’s most sophisticated device manufacturers and service providers.”
The Mocana platform provides a full-stack solution for securing IoT systems from the endpoint, to the gateway, to the cloud and back again. Mocana is solving one of the biggest challenges of defending against cyber attacks: enabling devices to defend themselves once a hacker gets behind a firewall or gains access to a computer on the inside of a private network. The platform ensures that both the device and its data can be trusted, by securing the boot process and firmware, and securing the transmission of data between the device, gateway and cloud. Hundreds of companies, including GE, General Dynamics, Panasonic, Schneider Electric, Siemens and Yokogawa have integrated Mocana into industrial cloud systems to provide security, reliability and defense against sophisticated cyber attacks.
