More than a billion intelligent, connected devices already comprise today’s “Internet of Things (IoT).” The expected proliferation of hundreds of billions more places us at the threshold of a transformation sweeping across the electronics industry and many others. Yet, the dream of a smart, safe and efficient future is threatened by subscription fees, ubiquitous advertising and intrusive surveillance. For the IoT to survive the end of trust and successfully scale from billions to hundreds of billions of devices, executives need to rethink the technology strategy, business models and design principles at its foundation. This first report of our study shows that a low-cost, private-by-design “democracy of devices” will emerge that will enable new digital economies and create new value, while offering consumers and enterprises fundamentally better products and user experiences.

Buildings IoT launches UK operations to help to build stakeholders reach net-zero by 2050

Buildings IoT | May 31, 2022

Buildings IoT, based in the United States, has opened offices in the United Kingdom to service the unique demands of building stakeholders in Europe, with the goal of decarbonizing buildings and advancing Net-Zero projects. Buildings IoT will market its IoT Jetstream smart building platform in the UK and across Europe to building owners, managers, investors, contractors, and systems integrators. Les Russell, Director of Business Development, is in charge of Buildings IoT's UK operation. Russell will be in charge of overseeing all primary partner connections, as well as providing assistance and raising the visibility of Buildings IOT across Europe. "Smart building technologies have reached an inflection point of maturity and performance, with speed to impact and a tangible ROI. The UK market is ripe with opportunity, thanks to the country's concerns over carbon reduction, indoor air quality, and financial due diligence requirements. The UK's goal to reach Net-Zero by 2050 is also a major driver of demand for proven solutions, including those from companies like Buildings IOT, that hold decades of domain expertise in both building infrastructure and platform technologies. I'm thrilled to be part of a team that recognises the UK as a global leader in sustainability and environmental consciousness, setting a high benchmark in energy efficiency standards for buildings," explains Russell, who has spent the last five years in the smart buildings industry. The Buildings IOT UK team will look for potential to improve occupant experience and realize overall operating efficiencies in a number of London-based commercial buildings, including office and manufacturing buildings. The organization will collaborate with important partners who have clients with specific ESG [environment, social, and governance] goals, as well as energy efficiency, sustainability, indoor air quality, security, and other operational factors. "We're happy to have Les on our team. His strong commercial background and business acumen made him a perfect fit. In his last role, Les identified Buildings IOT as a company to assist with a high-profile customer and a bespoke request around data optimisation. His belief in the Buildings IOT solution and understanding of what the UK market needed made it seem natural to bring Les on board," Gina Elliott, Chief Services Officer of Buildings IoT. Buildings IoT will expand its European presence by hiring engineers and customer success representatives in the United Kingdom. In addition, the company continues to use Agile development methods, enabling partners and customers to participate in the development of its smart building platform roadmap.

Silex Insight, Crypto Quantique | February 16, 2021

Silex Insight, a main engineer of embedded security IP centers, is collaborating with Crypto Quantique, an expert in quantum-driven cybersecurity for the internet of things (IoT), to make a start to finish IoT security solution. eSecure, Silex Insight's root-of-trust IP module for systems-on-chip (SoCs), application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs), and field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs), will be offered close by Crypto Quantique's all-inclusive IoT security platform, QuarkLink. eSecure is a versatile and flexible security equipment IP that is consistent with most regular industry norms, including NIST. Its highlights incorporate secure boot, system integrity by guaranteeing execution of authenticated software, device authentication, cryptographic acceleration, and age and capacity of secure keys and mystery data. QuarkLink supplements eSecure with provisioning secure firmware and cryptographic keys, robotized secure onboarding to any platform or numerous platforms at the same time, and far reaching security observing containing firmware encryption, marking and secure updates over-the-air, and testament and key reestablishment and repudiation. QuarkLink underpins AWS, Microsoft and Mosquito cloud services, with additional to follow. The blend of eSecure and QuarkLink will empower quick, robotized, and secure onboarding of IoT end-point devices toward cloud-based or in-house workers without including different gatherings. With no prerequisite for security mastery, clients will actually want to utilize QuarkLink's cryptographic APIs to securely interface a large number of devices to administrations with only a couple keystrokes, in the information that their devices and information are ensured against assaults. Silex Insight’s VP of Worldwide Sales and Marketing, Pieter Willems, said, “This partnership means we can make life easier for our customers while ensuring that their IoT deployments are both secure and scalable. It will help them reduce their time-to-market and cut development costs without ever compromising system security.” Wayne Godwin, VP of Business Development at Crypto Quantique, added, “Since we recently made QuarkLink available as a standalone product, we have seen a growing demand for it from companies that have established Root-of-Trust technologies already in place.
