Version 3.1 extends policy and security enablement to the MQTT protocol to add support for millions of M2M devices.
Cryptosoft, the leader in policy driven authentication and encryption services for connected IoT and M2M devices, today announced the availability of the latest version of the Cryptosoft platform. V3.1 sees the introduction of critical new functionality to enable the secure transfer of data from IoT devices throughout the ecosystem.
Cryptosoft’s market-leading, policy-based authentication and data protection technology has been extended to support the Message Queue Telemetry Transport (‘MQTT’) protocol, widely regarded as a leading communication standard for the ‘Internet of Things’. By adding support for MQTT within the Cryptosoft Gateway Agent, customers are now able to transparently secure data payloads from the edge of the IoT ecosystem, right back to the relevant, authorised application.
The Cryptosoft platform, by transparently processing data at the MQTT protocol layer, enables customers to add comprehensive, policy driven, data encryption services to their existing IoT workflows without re-wiring applications or current data flows.
Jon Penney, CTO and Founder, Cryptosoft, said:
“The introduction of support for MQTT is an important step in the evolution of the Cryptosoft Platform. Customers need to be able to secure data across the IoT ecosystem in a way that is non disruptive to existing workflows. The Cryptosoft Platform is designed to offer this security, without impacting on our customers networks or applications.”
V3.1 of the Cryptosoft Platform also contains enhancements to the core policy engine thereby improving the ability of organisations to manage security policies at IoT scale, as well as improving management and administration of the core platform.
