“From access points to cameras to building management systems, most enterprises have thousands of IoT devices powering mission-critical security and operations use cases — with no unified tool to ensure that they are available and secure,” said Roy Dagan, CEO of SecuriThings. “This increasingly puts organizations and their operations at risk, and drives maintenance costs through the roof.”
Dagan continued, “We initially started with IoT cybersecurity and quickly discovered a major problem our customers were facing that no one was solving. There are “IoTOps” teams within these organizations responsible for managing many of these tasks manually, including ensuring devices are online, fixing issues, effecting upgrades, etc. — and they are overwhelmed. With our deep experience in cybersecurity, we were able to quickly expand the platform to meet their full range of operational challenges. The market response has been tremendous.”
