Swytch Joins Forces with CENTRI to Secure Connected Services

November 14, 2018 Laura Dolan

Swytch and CENTRI Technology announced CENTRI will offer its Protected Sessions to Swytch and use the Swytch Open "Oracle" technology in an effort to track renewable energy in connected devices.

Swytch grants tokens to people, companies and other organizations that reduce harmful emissions and encourages changes in behavior on a macro and micro scale. 

CENTRI and its subsidiary Atonomi provide the ability for IoT devices to use blockchain technology. CENTRI Protected Sessions are designed for any IoT device, creating a layer of protocol and communication channel agnostic security, enhancing trust in the IoT environment.

"What Swytch is doing is fantastic for providing verifiable data on renewable energy production and sustainable behavior. We see increasing emphasis on sustainability metrics which will likely be a component of impact-based valuation in the future," said Robert Strickland, CEO of CENTRI. "As the world moves toward greater requirements involving sustainability and impact valuation using tools like those seen in the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals, we think what Swytch is offering will be essential. But in order for this to happen, the underlying infrastructure depends on trust, and we are delighted to be working with Swytch to provide those capabilities."
