The companies teamed up to provide scalable IoT security to Class 0/1 endpoints.

AgilePQ has announced the integration of its AgilePQ SLiM (Secure Last IoT Mile) security platform with iBot Control Systems. The collaboration will bring scalable IoT security to Class 0/1 endpoints for the enterprise. The integration enables end-to-end secure data and gives customers the tools they need to improve their business models and monetize their IoT assets with comprehensive security right to the edge.

The AgilePQ SLiM solution offers secure end-to-end data in transit, bidirectional communications, and a key space massively larger than AES-256/TLS. It has a small footprint of less than 2.4KB and is ideal for low-cost, battery-powered endpoint IoT devices with limited memory. It works at speeds up to 8 times faster than AES/TLS legacy systems while consuming half as much energy. It’s fully documented and provisions for ease of use and is integrated with Intel, TI, ARM, MIPS, Espressif, Arduino and other platforms and microprocessors, as well as with major cloud services like MS Azure and IBM BlueMix.

“With broad global growth of intrusion by bad actors into corporate, government, and consumer networks through newly deployed IoT devices, the security discussion has moved from the engineering conference rooms to the boardroom. Until the launch of AgilePQ SLiM, no fully provisioned security solution for Class 0 and Class 1 devices existed. iBot’s integration and successful implementations into products of Global 500 companies provides a global model for protecting valuable network assets with resource-constrained endpoint devices planned or deployed without a secure last IoT mile,” AgilePQ CEO, Paul Clayson said.

“Our world-class enterprise IoT hardware and cloud platform needed an equally world-class security architecture that would stand up not only to today’s needs but also in a post-quantum era. Our partnership with AgilePQ allowed us to speed up security delivery across the cyber-physical space at low power requirements and reduced cost to ensure secure operations across our product portfolio today and into the future,” iBot Founder and CEO Ravi Subramanyam added.

AgilePQ says it is working with companies, governments, platforms and service providers to integrate SLiM into their future product offerings.
