SmartHub.ai and Mocana Partner on SD-Edge Solutions

Edge-solutions expert SmartHub.ai and IoT-Security company Mocana have partnered to deliver a comprehensive approach to end-to-end, IoT solutions for edge-to-cloud and device-to-cloud services – SD-Edge Solutions.

The Mocana TrustEdge protection platform will be preloaded and integrated with SmartHub.ai’s INFER Suite. This will give a new software option for edge management to IoT solution providers. It allows connected devices to function with integrity and protected by design to provide trusted data for high value artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) operations. Lifecycle management and analytics will also be possible.

This partnership offers a trusted platform for managed security service providers in converged IT/OT ecosystems with a software-defined edge and on-device protection for high assurance of operational integrity and cyber resilience,

said Shreya Uchil, vice president of products and customer success at Mocana.

From the perspective of device manufacturers, the long-term economic benefits of digital transformation and compliance outweigh the innovation cost of device hardening and security-by-design without impacting bills of material costs,

added Srinivas Kumar, chief technology and product officer at Mocana.
The companies claim, that Mocana TrustEdge with SmartHub.ai’s INFER SD-Edge solutions will deliver many advantages to enterprises:

  • Get seamless visibility to the edge environment as well as connected brownfield and greenfield devices, and at the most granular level
  • Simplify the complexity of managing edge environments and make it more intelligent, responsive, and resilient, significantly reducing one-time and ongoing operational costs
  • Manage and obtain key data sign
  • als from heterogeneous devices valuable for business, IT and information security stakeholders

  • Automate the deployment, enrollment, configuration, updates, and monitoring of edge and connected devices with security orchestration pre-integrated with end-user IT controls, such as PKI, LDAP, and AD
  • Ensure field devices function as designed and provide trusted data
  • Incorporate zero trust elements in solutions across the edge/IoT value chain
  • Safeguard the integrity of brownfield and greenfield devices from point of manufacture to onboarding and lifetime field operations with tamper-resistant supply chain integrity
  • Facilitate in achieving compliance objectives and risk-based standards, such as IEC, NIST, NERC-CIP, FCG, and FIPS

Today, with billions of devices and sensors deployed to help increase operational efficiencies, support customer experiences and new business models, edge IoT is a critical piece of infrastructure for our customers,

said Niranjan Maka, co-founder and chief executive officer of SmartHub.ai.

We need to put a wrapper to manage the complexity inherent in this infrastructure because of heterogeneity and scale to be supported.
