Cog, SIEMonster increase security of event monitoring platform for the enterprise market
Cog, makers of the world’s most secure smartphone, announced a partnership with SIEMonster in which Cog’s D4 Secure platform will be embedded into SIEMonster’s remote event monitoring appliances. This will offer defense-grade Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) to enterprises around the world.
“This collaboration made immediate sense for our team,” said Chris Rock, CEO and founder of SIEMonster. “SIEM is critically important for organisations looking to proactively manage their cybersecurity. Expanding the reach of SIEM to occur via mobile or connected IoT devices is the next natural step. Deploying Cog’s technology ensures that no matter where our customers are executing their SIEM, the deep learning device will be at its most secure.”
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-by passable 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.
“We’ve seen increased pressure from the market to leverage SIEM platforms via mobile devices with higher-grade security than is currently available,” added Patrick Hayes, managing director, Security Operations & MSS for Online Business Systems. “The solution that Cog and SIEMonster have developed addresses that need well beyond what is currently available otherwise in the market.”
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.
“SIEMonster has done a tremendous job of building a product suite that offers best-in-class security event monitoring, even in the most remote locations,” said Carl L. Nerup, CMO and co-founder of Cog. “Our shared goal was to turbocharge this effort by adding Cog’s D4 Secure to provide defense-grade security as SIEMonster continues to focus on building the best SIEM appliances available.”
The new devices are expected to be commercially available in the third quarter of 2018.
