Cog, SIEMonster increase security of event monitoring platform

Cog, makers of the world´s most secure smartphone, has announced a partnership with SIEMonster in which Cog´s D4 Secure platform will be embedded into SIEMonster´s remote event monitoring appliances, the company said.

This will offer defense-grade Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) to enterprises around the world.

Cog´s D4 Secure platform leverages modularity to isolate critical functions and services on connected devices. This approach proactively secures IoT devices by reducing the attack surface and increases reliability by eliminating single points of failure.

The company´s solution embeds the additional security features of double encryption, non-bypassable VPNs, nested VPNs, and secure boot to protect the kernel, data, and network on the device. The system can scale linearly and infinitely, thus reducing bottlenecks and preserving performance.

Both Cog and SIEMonster are part of the San Francisco Landing Pad created by the Australian Trade and Investment Commission (Austrade). The 90-day program, delivered in partnership with the AustCyber, the Australian Cyber Security Growth Network, helps market-ready startups grow their businesses by facilitating in-market business development, introductions to investors and mentor networks, and strategic partnership opportunities. The companies will demo their solutions on April 19 during the RSA Conference in San Francisco.

The new devices are expected to be commercially available in the third quarter of 2018. For more information, visit: http://cog.systems/.

Cog, the solution for securing IoT, has been preparing for the revolution in connected device architecture since 2014. The traditional architecture of IoT and smart devices creates a massive attack surface, forcing security policy to accept high risk, restricted access, which poses a burden on users.
