Sectigo Partners with NetObjex

World’s largest commercial Certificate Authority (CA) Sectigo (formerly Comodo CA) has announced a secure edge computing technology pact with NetObjex, an Intelligent Automation Platform for tracking, tracing, and monitoring digital assets using AI, Blockchain, and Internet of Things (IoT). The collaboration provides enterprises and manufacturers with a secured, trusted computing infrastructure that extends from IoT edge devices to the cloud and blockchain.

“By collaborating with Sectigo, we can extend our comprehensive platform and offer enhanced security to our enterprise customers,” said Raghu Bala, CEO, NetObjex. “The growth of edge devices has increased the risk of devastating data breaches. Offering Sectigo’s embedded device hardening technologies and purpose-built third-party certificate issuance and management allows enterprises to protect their important data.”

As IoT adoption grows, the trend is to put more intelligence on the edge through smarter, more capable devices, extending and expanding the traditional enterprise IT infrastructure beyond a data centre or cloud environment. The addition of elements like trucks, containers, kiosks, warehouses, and more creates an ecosystem of edge devices that not only collect and disseminate data but also now perform highly complex tasks like AI at the outer reaches of the network.

Sectigo and NetObjex provide enterprises and manufacturers with a secured, trusted computing infrastructure that extends from IoT edge devices to the cloud and blockchain. With the proliferation of more edge devices, the risk of a data breach only multiplies for enterprises. Last year, there were 1,244 data breaches, exposing 446.5 million records. Not only does this lead to significant obstacles, but breaches also come at a high price. Ponemon Institute estimates the average cost of a data breach to exceed $3.5 million.

“With the growth of IoT and the rising cost of data breaches, enterprises need a secure computing infrastructure more than ever,” said Damon Kachur, Vice President, IoT Solutions, Sectigo. “This partnership combines the strengths of Sectigo and NetObjex to deliver a truly robust security infrastructure that addresses an acute need for enterprises.”

Through collaboration, both companies will be able to deliver enhanced security in all products and solutions.
