Telefonica Launches IoT Cybersecurity Unit and Partners with Subex for Security Analytics
April 10, 2019 / Ray Sharma
Telefonica has launched the IoT Cybersecurity Unit, a new project focused on the security of the Internet of Things (IoT). As the number of devices connected to the internet grows exponentially, the risks associated with them also grows in parallel. To address these threats and to promote IoT implementation, Telefónica has decided to launch this initiative with a twofold objective. On the one hand, this unit will strive to expand the existing catalogue of IoT products and services offered to customers and, on the other hand, to develop new IoT security solutions to cater to the existing and emerging threats faced by businesses deploying IoT. This unit will leverage Telefonica’s existing network infrastructure and the Kite Platform, an IoT connectivity management platform that allows businesses to improve efficiencies while reducing costs.
