IoT Security Solutions Provider Mocana Unveils Managed ICS Platform

Mocana, an Internet of Things (IoT) security solutions provider, has launched the TrustCenter managed security platform for industrial control systems (ICS) and IoT devices.

TrustCenter offers end-to-end management of cybersecurity across the entire IoT device security lifecycle, according to a prepared statement. The platform also complements TrustPoint, Mocana's flagship IoT endpoint security software.

TrustCenter automates secure device onboarding, enrollment and over-the-air (OTA) updates for ICS and IoT devices, Mocana indicated. By doing so, the platform ensures supply chain integrity and improves the safety and reliability of ICS and IoT devices.

In addition, TrustCenter works in combination with the Intel Secure Device Onboard device management service to reduce the time it takes to automate provisioning of secure credentials onto devices, Mocana said. It includes an administrative dashboard, enrollment server and update server, Mocana noted, and can be used in conjunction with any hierarchical database.

Key features of TrustCenter include:

  • Automated device enrollment.
  • FIPS 140-2 Level 1 validated cryptography.
  • Pre-integrated with more than 70 chipsets and 30 real-time operating systems.

TrustCenter is now available, and it can be deployed on bare metal, private cloud or public cloud infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS). Also, Mocana will provide TrustCenter demonstrations at next week's RSA Conference in San Francisco.
