Fleet and Cog Partner to Secure Satellite-Connected Internet of Things

Cog, maker of the world’s most secure IoT security solutions, today announced that Fleet, an Australian Internet of Things startup, has partnered with the company to advance the security of satellite-connected Internet of Things (IoT) devices. Fleet will deploy Cog’s D4 Secure platform on trial projects around the world.

With its focus on satellite-enabled massive IoT devices, Fleet connects hundreds, thousands or tens of thousands of industrial devices in areas with no cellular or public low-power wide-area network (LPWAN) coverage. Fleet’s solution is especially effective for remote industrial agriculture, maritime logistics, mining and environmental applications.

“We were drawn to Cog’s D4 Secure platform because of its ability to use modularity to isolate critical functions on cutting-edge IoT devices like ours,” said Flavia Tata Nardini, CEO of Fleet. “They are the perfect partner to increase device security as we focus on building the technology that will become the digital nervous system for our planet.”

The companies will install Cog’s D4 Secure platform to provide proactive kernel protection, radio isolation for satellite communications, and a VPN tunnel to ensure secure data transport for Fleet devices. As a final step, Cog will isolate other sensors so they only draw battery power when a specific event is executed.

“Fleet has taken satellite IoT and made it incredibly simple for organizations around the world,” said Carl Nerup, Co-Founder and Chief Marketing Officer for Cog. “At Cog, we recognize that any remote device connected by satellite needs an extra layer of security. Our focus is on optimizing the devices for performance and reduced latency, while adding defense-grade security. It is a distinct honor that Fleet selected Cog as their security partner.”
