emnify | March 02, 2023
emnify, a leading cloud-native IoT cellular connectivity enabler, has recently announced a new technological and strategic partnership with Lynk, a renowned satellite IoT connectivity provider. The collaboration puts emnify at the forefront of an emerging IoT connectivity revolution, with satellite and terrestrial mobile communications systems combining into a unified ‘network of networks’ to achieve more accessible, resilient, and flexible connectivity solutions.
Through this collaboration, emnify will offer Lynk's ingenious ‘cell towers in space’ to its customers. To ensure consistent and dependable IoT connectivity, emnify customers can now connect their existing LTE or GSM cellular radio device to Lynk's satellite-based cell towers. The solution will be supported by Lynk's global technology and managed through emnify's proprietary web portal and APIs.
Lynk's satellite portfolio will broaden emnify's global coverage outside of terrestrial mobile networks and into international maritime waters with the deployment of three commercial low-Earth-orbit satellites by the end of 2023.
VP of Network Access at emnify, Alexander Schebler, says: "Use cases such as environmental monitoring, fish farming, smart metering, and asset tracking in offshore locations and international waters do not require frequent data transfer. However, the ability to establish connectivity without relying on mobile network reception is crucial for collecting meter readings, sensor values, or GPS locations of assets." He added, "This partnership marks the future of IoT connectivity, where satellite and terrestrial mobile communications systems work seamlessly together to provide more resilient, accessible, and flexible connectivity solutions. We are thrilled to be at the forefront of this IoT connectivity revolution and are eager to empower our customers to realize the full value of their device fleets through their existing Emnify Cloud infrastructure."

Nozomi Networks | March 24, 2023
Nozomi Networks, the leader in OT and IoT security, today announced a new content pack for organizations working toward ISA/IEC 62443 compliance and certification. The ISA/IEC 62443 Content Pack makes it possible for Nozomi Networks platform users to quickly create custom queries and reports that help confirm their industrial automation and control systems (IACS) meet ISA/IEC 62443 standards. The Content Pack can also be used to assess an IACS’ security posture against ISA/IEC 62443 standards, identifying areas that align with the standards and areas that must be addressed in order to be compliant.
“Nozomi Networks’ ISA/IEC 62443 Content Pack technology brings everyone together around a set of reports and queries that helps users access the details they need to reach compliance,” said Chris Grove, Nozomi Networks Director of Cybersecurity Strategy. “Rather than reinvent the wheel each time a customer needs this data, a user can create and distribute a single file where it can then be imported into a Guardian, run as-is or edited, and then re-distributed to the public, across Guardians, or to partners, collaborators, user groups, wherever you want to share it.”
The ISA/IEC 62443 series of standards, developed by the International Society of Automation 99 committee (ISA99) and adopted by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), provides a framework to address and mitigate current and future security vulnerabilities in IACSs. The committee draws on the input and knowledge of security experts across the globe to develop consensus standards that are applicable to all industry sectors and critical infrastructure.
Nozomi Networks’ Content Packs are owned by Nozomi Networks’ user community and make it possible to export a combination of queries and reports into a single JSON file that can be shared in a completely separate environment. Content Packs do not contain any proprietary information and are safe to share. This allows Nozomi Networks and its customers to quickly share custom reports or queries internally or with the Nozomi Networks user community. The new ISA/IEC 62443 Content Pack covers parts 2-1 (security program best practices) and part 3-3 (definitions for system security requirements and security capabilities levels).
