Gary Gauba: CenturyLink, WISeKey Forge Internet of Things Security Collaboration - top government contractors - best government contracting event

ITCenturyLink and WISeKey have agreed to explore strategies for the companies to jointly develop and market cybersecurity services in the Internet of Things market.

Both companies will look to offer a managed digital identity services platform in a bid to help enterprise clients secure connected devices and maintain data privacy, WISeKey said Wednesday.

“As the number of connected devices continues to expand, collecting and exchanging huge amounts of data along the way, the need for strong Internet of Things security services becomes increasingly important for businesses and consumers,” said Gary Gauba, president of CenturyLink subsidiary Cognilytics.

WISeKey also plans to collaborate with CenturyLink to build a hardware root of trust that will serve as a foundation for their IoT security verification efforts in the public and private sectors.
