SUNNYVALE, Calif., March 6, 2019 – Intrinsic ID, the world’s leading provider of digital authentication technology for Internet of Things security, announced today it has been named “Groundbreaking Company in Internet of Things Security” in the 2019 InfoSec Awards by Cyber Defense Magazine. Award recipients were selected by a panel of security professionals, with the goal of recognizing information security innovators and organizations poised to become the next generation of industry leaders. Winners were announced at the RSA Conference 2019, held March 4-8 in San Francisco.
“The work by the Intrinsic ID team is groundbreaking in many ways, so it’s an honor to have been recognized as such by Cyber Defense Magazine at this year’s RSA Conference,” said Pim Tuyls, chief executive officer for Intrinsic ID. “The threats facing the Internet of Things grow continually, and we continue to develop technology for developing unclonable identities to secure every device connected to the IoT.”
Intrinsic ID’s patented SRAM PUF (Physical Unclonable Function) technology is the basis for deriving unclonable identities for products connected to the IoT. The company’s secure root key generation and management software solutions for IoT security enable device manufacturers to secure their products with an unclonable identity such as a unique secret root key without the need for adding a costly, standalone, security-dedicated silicon.
The InfoSec award is the second such honor Intrinsic ID has received in recent months. In January BroadKey was named IoT Security Product of the Year in the 2019 IoT Breakthrough Awards. For more of Intrinsic ID’s achievements, visit the Awards page on the company’s website.
“In an era when nation state exploitation, cybercrime, hacktivism, cyberespionage, ransomware and malware exploits are all on the rise, it’s important to recognize companies working to combat such threats, a reason Intrinsic ID won the Groundbreaking Company for IoT Security from our magazine,” said Gary S. Miliefsky, Publisher, Cyber Defense Magazine. “Intrinsic ID won after we reviewed nearly 3,000 infosec companies because they are an innovator on a mission to help stop breaches and proactively get one step ahead of these threats.”
“With Cybercrime continuing to gain momentum, surpassing global drug crime last year and projected to reach over $1 trillion in theft and damages in 2019, we are proud to see this company as an award-winning innovator, offering a new approach to defeat these criminals,” said Pierlugi Paganini, editor-in-chief, Cyber Defense Magazine.”
