Sensify defends heterogeneous IoT devices & applications against cyber-attacks by delivering decentralized information security services that are integrated with enterprise security. Sensify provides identity, authentication and authorization services uniquely local to IoT devices. It provides a consistent security service delivery that spans users, applications & control systems. It is deployed as a security gateway within operating environments and integrates with both TCP/IP & industrial networks. Sensify leverages a blockchain-based consensus protocol for tamper-resistant & secure propagation of security services to IoT devices from the enterprise. This also protects against adversarial control of IoT devices. Sensify provides centralized control, policy management and compliance by closely integrating with the operator’s existing enterprise security systems like Active Directory, LDAP & OAuth.
“With our abilities of building ground-up cyber-defense capabilities in IoT operations, Sensify is committed to contributing – along with other IIC members – towards creating reference architectures & best practices for IoT security to empower operators across industry verticals to rise up to today’s challenges of cyber-security,” said Susanto Irwan, co-founder of Sensify Security.
“Securing IoT devices is top of mind for most enterprises, especially given the recent uptick in security breaches, for example the recent DDoS attacks,” said Dr. Richard Soley, Executive Director, Industrial Internet Consortium. “We look forward to the expertise of Sensify Security as we define ways to help enterprises defend themselves against viscous attacks that can cost them billions.”
