Protect communication between things

The internet of things is growing in leaps and bounds, and the fourth industrial revolution (Industry 4.0) is already here. Nexus helps you protect the communication between all types of smart devices, servers and personal computers, so that you can avoid eavesdroppers and hijackers.

The internet of things (IoT) allows smart devices, sometimes battery powered and with constrained resources, to connect to each other and communicate. All too often IoT devices fall victim to cyberattacks, and it is time to take a holistic view on security. We help you:

  • Strengthen sensor network security. Strong encryption is necessary to protect communication between things, and to enable this you need cryptographically strong device identities. We help you enable trusted identities, both for short-lived devices and things designed to last for decades.
  • Enable strong authentication. You need to make sure that the right people get access to the smart devices – and that the wrong people do not. At Nexus we have a long history of helping our customers protect their products and services with strong authentication.
  • Streamline the management of identities. With billions of things online, managing the identities of devices, customers, maintenance personnel and end-users creates new challenges. With our identity management platform, you can quickly automate workflows to manage the entire lifecycle of all the identities – without complex and costly programming.

Bringing Nexus on board means you can concentrate on your core business while leaning safely on the security knowledge and standards we have implemented in our products.

The solution is suitable for those would like to:

  • Reduce their business risk by increasing product security.
  • Secure device communication using standards based PKI security.
  • Build security at all levels with strong identities and encrypted communication all the way from the constrained devices to the cloud.

Frequently asked questions

What does IoT mean?

IoT, or Internet of Things, encompasses objects that have been equipped with technology that makes it possible for them to store or exchange data. This can be, for example, a telephone, a card reader, or a car.

What is LTE?

LTE (Long-Term Evolution) is a standard for high-speed wireless communication for mobile phones and data terminals.

What is SE46?

Nexus SE46 functions proactively and protects your units with the help of an application certificate. The certificate makes it possible to identify and authenticate software and applications in IT environments, such that unauthorized content is not allowed to enter the protected zone.
