Real-time embedded cyber visibility and security for IoT devices offered by Telit and Sternum

Natali Tshuva of Sternum

Telit, a global enabler of the Internet of Things (IoT), is partnering with Sternum, the multi-layered cybersecurity solution providing real-time embedded protection for IoT devices. Sternum’s solution can be built into Telit’s xE910 module family to give Telit’s customers in-depth visibility and security for their entire device fleet.

This comprehensive visibility provides real-time alerts of cyber breaches, prevented attacks, device malfunctioning and more, enabling rapid responses to security incidents.

To ensure safer and more secure connectivity, Sternum’s Embedded Integrity Verification (EIV) solution will be integrated onto Telit’s ME910 IoT modules. EIV will validate every operation within any IoT device where Telit’s module is installed, operating like an on-device firewall. Sternum’s solution ensures overall device integrity at all times, as well as the protection of sensitive data within the device.

“Telit’s cellular modules are embedded in over 150 million OEM IoT devices,” according to Alon Segal, SVP of Software & Services, Telit. “We continue to invest in leading edge technology to secure and enable our customers. With Sternum’s technology, we add real-time embedded protection for smart devices, allowing Telit to provide even more secure products and to continue to lead the IoT market by providing innovative security services to our clients.”

“Partnering with Telit marks a significant shift in the IoT device market, indicating that on-device, real-time cybersecurity is now critical and scalable,” says Natali Tshuva, CEO of Sternum. “Telit’s ability to offer cybersecure modules for IoT cellular connectivity not only provides device manufacturers security but also gives unprecedented visibility into the cyber health of entire fleets. With the global proliferation of IoT devices and more sophisticated cyber breaches, a holistic solution that sits on the device is the future of IoT cybersecurity.”
