EMERYVILLE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#5G–LOCH Technologies, the leader in wireless and wireless IoT security, today announced that it has been named a Cool Vendor in the Gartner Cool Vendors in Edge Computing 2021 report1.
The report states, “As edge computing moves from proofs of concept and custom-made monolithic projects to repeatable enterprise applications, vendor offerings that simplify deployment are gaining attention. Gartner forecasts that 15 billion IoT devices will be connecting to enterprise networks by 2028. A total of 80% of these devices will connect via wireless technology, and 97% of enterprises have security concerns when adopting IoT. Any IT organization that does not have a policy that defines how a device will connect to the network or has not tested all devices to ensure that they act properly must discover, manage, secure and monitor all wireless. This is the case whether the device is Wi-Fi or cellular.”
“We are strong advocates of a ‘trust nothing’ policy,” said Garry Drummond, CEO at LOCH Technologies. “Our software defined radio based AirShield is able to sense a wide range of RF (300MHz to 6GHz) bringing high fidelity IoT and other asset discovery to enterprises of all sizes and lines of business. The ability to continuously track such devices and API-driven integrations for remediations via commonly used tools enables our customers to execute on their Zero Trust security initiatives.”
