The Kudelski Group (SIX:KUD.S) has expanded its Internet of Things (IoT) security Center of Excellence with the launch of its IoT Security Suite. The suite targets device manufacturers and service providers who need to address the long-term privacy and safety issues of their devices and protect their business models from attack.

The IoT security solution is intended to provide the ability to ensure network and device integrity as well as control access to business-critical data coming from IoT devices, thereby enabling and protecting new IoT business models, both at launch and when the system comes under attack.

The suite uses a modular approach to device, data and local/edge decision-making protection by offering a choice of dedicated hardware security chips, embedded IP blocks and/or software protection techniques. Security levels can be customized depending on the threat model agreed with the customer.

The first release of the IoT Security Suite contains a dedicated secure element designed to resist the highest level of attacks even when operating in IoT battery-powered devices. The secure element comes provisioned with credentials that are authenticated by the Kudelski Group's cloud-based servers using techniques from the pay TV space and guaranteeing the identity and authenticity of devices embedding the chip.

"The IoT attack surface is huge and growing every day, made up of a vast ecosystem of devices and technologies, different communication protocols, platforms, applications and infrastructures", said Jean-Michel Puiatti, senior vice president IoT Security at Kudelski Group. "We are offering foundational security technologies and services that give our customers a strategic competitive advantage. By assessing, implementing, evolving and monitoring the security of their devices over time, we protect their business against new threats."

The Kudelski Group bought Dallas-based M&S Technologies, a specialist provider of cyber and network security solutions, in January.
