SEATTLE, WA. and MEXICO CITY, MX. CENTRI Technology, its subsidiary Atonomi, and Digital Edge announced their forming of a joint venture for the development and launch of an Internet of Things security product.
The endeavor will involve the expansive expertise, cryptography, privacy and product development capabilities of Digital Edge. CENTRI and Atonomi will contribute their layered security models for IoT device and endpoint security, designed for network and protocol agnostic security down to the lowest form factor and battery-powered devices used for IoT solutions.
"Our teams have been heads down on this work now for several months,” said CENTRI and Atonomi’s CEO, Robert Strickland. “This new joint venture will enable us to expedite our delivery of enterprise security solutions to a wide range of companies across many industries. While we are announcing this today, we have already initiated discussions with companies that will lead to our first paid pilots within the first half of this year. We are set to meet with telecommunications and IoT related companies next week at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The nature of security solution projects requires that they remain under strict Research and Development NDAs. Therefore, our team will continue to work confidentially with the multi-national corporations until we announce the agreements publicly.”
