San Francisco (PRWEB) February 26, 2009
For Mocana, a software company that delivers comprehensive embedded security solutions for non-PC devices, 2008 proved to be a validation of the company strategy. Founded to deliver high performance security solutions tailored for constrained device environments, Mocana significantly extended its customer base over the past year with new orders from communications and device vendors ranging from industry leaders like NetApp and Dell, to technology specialists like Radvision and SightSys to innovators like Cognex, Dragon Wave, Sagamore Systems and Zebra Technologies. 2008 also brought in a $7 million venture capital investment, executive team expansion and awards as one of the Red Herring Global 100 and for 'Technology Innovation of the Year' from Frost & Sullivan.
Commenting on the year, Adrian Turner, CEO of Mocana, said, "We truly are entering the age of the Internet of Things, with devices already outnumbering workstations on the Internet by about five to one. Without comprehensive embedded security, those devices represent billions of 'soft targets' for hackers. In general, information security is getting worse, not better. And as these devices increasingly interact with our healthcare facilities, our utility grids and our network infrastructure, device hacks will have catastrophic consequences."
Turner continued, "Throughout the past year, we really saw our story resonating with customers. We saw device manufacturers highlighting security as a competitive differentiator, and making security a priority - because consumers and enterprise customers alike demanded it. We expect this trend to continue in 2009 and hope that the recognition we received a few weeks ago as one of the 'Red Herring Global 100' is an early indication of a great year for Mocana."
2008 also represented a year of continued innovation for Mocana. The company made numerous product introductions and updates that included:
- NanoPhone Suite for Android - the first (and only) enterprise-grade security suite for developers building on the Google™ Android platform,
- NanoDefender - a revolutionary intrusion prevention system for embedded devices that eliminates false positives,
- NanoSec - the smallest, fastest embedded IPsec implementation on the market, and
- NanoUpdate - a totally new way to securely issue trusted firmware updates to vast networks of connected devices.
Today, Mocana offers more than 18 products for over 1,000 different OS/CPU combinations in a unified architecture for secure embedded systems: the Mocana Device Security Framework™, or DSF. The DSF offers a comprehensive approach to securing and managing any kind of connected device, from routers, switches and printers, to industrial automation and military equipment, to faxes, smartphones and DVRs.
