PRESS RELEASE: Fornetix and OutSecure Partner to Provide Comprehensive Security for Smart Cities

FREDERICK, MD – Fornetix, Inc., an industry pioneer and leader in enterprise encryption management technology, has partnered with OutSecure, a preeminent Cybersecurity & Privacy Strategy creation company, to provide a comprehensive and complete approach to cybersecurity to smart cities.

Delogo-outsecurependent upon Internet of Things (IoT) sensors, smart cities require end-to-end security solutions that span cloud and connectivity layers while still supporting IoT devices that are often not powerful enough to utilize traditional security solutions. Security must be comprehensive or attackers are able to easily exploit the weakest IoT link. Fornetix and OutSecure work together to protect and manage devices, secure communications, and utilize a holistic view of the component systems integration.

“OutSecure works to identify the security pain-points in a smart city and then addresses their specific remediation. Cybersecurity is a complex area that spans infrastructure, connectivity, lines of business, and supply chain even for smart cities with a robust security initiative. It is easy to miss the alignment necessary to truly ensure critical assets and risks from connectivity are protected,” said Pamela Gupta, President of OutSecure.

VaultCore by Fornetix is the premiere IoT enterprise-grade encryption key manager built specifically to support the massive scale and automation needed by the likes of large IoT networks and smart city initiatives. The vast amount of sensors, data, applications, and communications in a smart city environment rapidly generates the need for millions of encryption keys. Fornetix is able to deliver powerful encryption management and security for smart city power grids, connected vehicles, traffic management, city surveillance, private data, law enforcement, and much more.

“Fornetix and OutSecure together provide a full threat and risk assessment for smart cities. Fornetix is the principal conductor in orchestrating a smart city’s security through encryption. This partnership and technology is vital for risk mitigation as well as reducing the cost for securing assets,” said Mark Gilroy, CEO of Fornetix.
