Mocana provides security for Fusion CDMA modules

M2M module provider Fusion Wireless has picked Mocana to provide security software for its high-speed CDMA modules.

Fusion already uses Mocana’s SSL security features in its FW2770p wireless module. The modules provide broadband connectivity for M2M and consumer devices.

Fusion will use the Nano SSL component of Mocana’s device security framework. This SSL/TLS product can help speed development while providing device security in resource-constrained environments. Nano SSL is open-standards-based, extensible, platform-agnostic and includes an optional US government-certified FIPS 140-2 level-one validated crypto core.

It includes a full-featured key generator and certificate management client, and the RFC standard for TLS 1.2.

“The benefits of embracing connected, smart devices across every segment of the economy is well established,” said Adrian Turner, CEO of Mocana. “But unless M2M connections have the right security, these devices and the applications running on them won’t be trusted. Companies might then resist integrating these new tools more fully into their business processes.

“Fusion’s secure M2M modules will help companies operationalise their M2M implementations faster and more reliably. And in the end, that means a better return on investment.”

Applications using Nano SSL include medical equipment, industrial sensors, smart grid devices and other embedded devices. All these need secured management access to transport data securely over the internet.

“Mocana is an established leader in securing smart devices,” said Dave Carey, CEO of Fusion Wireless. “Mocana’s SSL technology enables Fusion Wireless to offer a value-driven module with robust security features. We look forward to further growing our presence in the M2M space through our partnership with Mocana.”
