CENTRI’s Atonomi and Assess-IoT Partner to Improve Security in IoT Technology
The Internet of Things has come a long way in just a few years. A few years ago most IoT devices were designed to collect data and stream it back to the manufacturers. Today, however, diverse IoT devices are capable of working with each other and doing much more. Unfortunately, risk factors such as security and trust continue to hinder this progress.
Assess-IoT and CENTRI Technology have forged a partnership that will see them work together to improve security and trustworthiness in enterprise-grade IoT systems.
Meeting The Future Needs Of IoT
For companies, the Internet of Things is another technological gift that promises to improve efficiency and so much more. However, most companies are skeptical in spite of the technology’s appeal. This is because the networking and data-sharing involved in IoT make it vulnerable to security breaches. Considering the rise in cyber attacks on businesses all over the world, the risks outweigh the potential benefits.
IoT has to guarantee security and trustworthiness to go main-stream. This is what CENTRI Technology and Assess-IoT hope to achieve by pooling their specialties in diverse related fields.
Assess-IoT has vast experience. The company offers specialized consultancy services to businesses seeking to adopt IoT for commercial purposes. Its services are designed to aid with strategic analysis and the development of business IoT models.
Assess-IoT will handle the marketing bits of the more secure and trustworthy IoT system that will arise from this partnership. It will also help with developing the ideal enterprise-grade IoT system.
CENTRI Technology’s Contribution
CENTRI Technology has also specialized its services to IoT and will be working through its subsidiary, Atonomi. CENTRI Technology develops a wide range of software products for IoT device manufacturers, software developers, and other IoT professionals. Security is one of the pillars of this company’s services – it aims to ensure that data is protected on all stages right from production to consumption. It utilizes industry-standard compression and encryption security technology as opposed to standards-based security infrastructure.

CENTRI Technology will be leveraging the benefits of Blockchain technology for this particular project through its Atonomi subsidiary. Atonomi is the unit tasked with developing Blockchain-based software products. It is also the original developer of the Universal Trust Environment for the Internet of Things. This system is designed to enable devices to be inter-operatable and improves networking, thus enhancing the capabilities for IoT. It also validates immutable device identity so as to keep hackers and digital eavesdroppers out.
Warm Sentiments From Both Sides
Representatives from both companies were optimistic of what this new partnership may help achieve. Peter Hunt, the CEO of Assess-IoT, said that CENTRI Technology was the best pick for this new project thanks to its advanced technology systems. He was also confident that both companies have what it takes to actually achieve these goals. Don DeLoach, COO and President of CENTRI Technology, was also optimistic of the future saying that his company has what it takes to back Assess-IoT’s services and plans.
The Internet of Things may be the next cornerstone of technological advancement. However, it will first have to overcome security concerns. Assess-IoT and CENTRI Technology are planning to expedite this process with their latest partnership designed to boost security and trust in IoT systems.
