Machine-to-Machine Intelligence (M2Mi) Corporation, a leader in enterprise platforms for M2M and IoT, today announced that it has been recognized by Gartner as a “Cool Vendor for Managing OT (Operational Technology) in a Digital Business” for 2014*.
Gartner characterizes Digital Business as follows: “Digital business is the creation of new business designs by blurring the digital and physical worlds. Digital business promises to usher in an unprecedented convergence of people, business, and things that disrupts existing business models. With more than seven billion people and businesses, and at least 35 billion devices, communicating, transacting, and even negotiating with each other, a new world comes into being — the world of digital business.”
M2Mi provides the M2M Intelligence® platform, which includes M2M Automation and M2M Cyber Security, as the essential technology foundation for M2M and IoT offerings. By bundling global telecom bandwidth and data services with the M2M Intelligence® platform, M2Mi provides an integrated solution to enable enterprises to rapidly deploy revenue-generating M2M, IoT and Digital Business services. The M2M Intelligence® platform is now also available from the IBM Cloud Marketplace for trial and purchase.
“We are very pleased that Gartner has recognized M2Mi as a Cool Vendor for Managing Operational Technology in a Digital Business. Our M2M Intelligence® platform includes patented Lockbox technology that enables rapid deployment of secure Digital Business and Internet of Things solutions. We consider this inclusion by Gartner to be a validation of the critical importance of Cyber Security and platform-driven intelligence, for success in the Digital Business and Internet of Things economy,” says Geoff Brown, CEO, Machine-to-Machine Intelligence (M2Mi) Corporation.
M2M Cyber Security includes patented secure Lockbox technology, which enables organizations to implement operational technology (OT) security policies for fine-grained control of their M2M and IoT infrastructure and data flow. Gartner defines Operational Technology Security as follows: “Operational technology security monitors, measures and protects industrial automation, industrial process control, and related systems that identify, sense and/or control changes of state in physical infrastructures. It also supplements IT security to protect the Internet of Things.”
