Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity, a leading IT security provider, and Arkessa, a leading M2M managed services provider announced the launch of a joint multi-level IoT platform solution. It unlocks the full potential of IoT by enabling secure interactions across digital ecosystems of devices, people and systems.

The Internet of Things (IoT) continues to expand rapidly and poses significant network connectivity and security risks. The unprecedented scale of deployment for connected endpoints and devices creates unique new challenges for the IoT ecosystem, including carriers and network operators.

The joint solution developed by Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity and Arkessa offers customers a single platform for managing the security and connectivity of all IoT operations. The service provides three distinct advantages: Customers can manage global IoT deployment scenarios via a single dashboard, gain full - packet by packet - visibility of IoT network traffic and proactively protect IoT networks with advanced OT & IT firewalling functions.

The use cases for this unique IoT solution range from connected vending machines, connected vehicles to critical infrastructure and mobile wireless access points.

"We are thrilled to be working with Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity, who develops and produces technologically leading IT security solutions. Together we can offer enterprises a single pane of glass for all connected devices with an unparalleled opportunity to act on security threats. The combination of management, detection and protection capabilities for global IoT operations is critical and powerful," said Andrew Orrock, CEO of Arkessa.

"We have seen a continued demand for European OT-ready security solutions. At the same time, customers were hesitant to change when traditional solutions were not addressing the risks posed by the thousands of devices connecting back to the core over standard internet connections only. This collaboration with Arkessa provides our customers with a unique opportunity to securely scale their IoT operations globally, with a security layer spanning from the network core to every single asset deployed in the field," said Henning Ogberg, SVP Sales & Marketing of Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity.
