The Internet of Things (IoT) is being hailed as the next Industrial Revolution because of the dramatic impact it will have on the way we live our lives. With the explosion of connected devices comes exponential security threats and risks, which require new and innovative security approaches to make the IoT viable. Connecting many different types of sensors and devices to the internet that do not have robust built-in security can open a mass of vulnerabilities and introduce weaknesses into previously secure environments. With the ubiquitous nature of the Internet of Everything (IoE), the boundaries between corporate networks and IoT / IoE devices are being blurred. Attackers are masters at exploiting the weakest link which could be a smart coffee maker or light bulb connected to the corporate network or the video surveillance camera in the warehouse.

This new and evolving digital world of the IoT and IoE requires new and innovative approaches to security. Infotecs’ mission is to give organizations the best solutions to meet these constantly evolving challenges of the connected world by providing innovative, robust, cost-effective solutions for the toughest cyber security challenges designed with the future in mind. Infotecs has been a pioneer of security innovation since the early 1990’s and is at the forefront of developing solutions, which use military grade, point-to-point encryption. In addition to being highly secure and impervious to man-in-the-middle attacks these efficient point-to-point software solutions are ultra-low latency making them particularly suited for IoT / IoE deployments.

Clients rely on Infotecs to help them address the many challenges of security for the IoT / IoE. To meet the need for cost efficient and effective IoT security, Infotecs has developed a cyber-security solution based on Raspberry Pi. This credit card-sized mini-PC can be used as a fully functional VPN gateway and firewall based on ViPNet technology to encrypt devices such as networked computer cash register systems in retail, or protect VoIP, printers, building infrastructure, and IP video cameras including drones using IP video cameras for aerial surveillance or systems using video for facial recognition.
