Altair Semiconductor partners with Check Point for IoT security
Altair Semiconductor has partnered with Check Point Software Technologies to co-develop a comprehensive security solution for IoT devices.
The partnership will allow routing traffic of Altair-enabled IoT devices through Check Point’s Capsule Cloud solution that will screen all the data, preventing any threats before they reach the devices. The enhanced security achieved through routing Altair’s 1160 CAT-1 chipsets through Check Point’s Capsule Cloud includes advanced threat prevention, adaptive risk mitigation and device content and information protection.
Altair’s 1160 CAT-2 chipsets are specially developed for IoT and M2M applications such as wearables, vehicle telematics, smart meters and security applications.
Alon Kantor, VP business development at Check Point Software, said: “Embedding the Check Point Capsule Cloud comprehensive security capabilities into the Altair cellular-IoT connectivity chipsets enables manufacturers to offer a highly integrated and cost-effective security solution. IoT provides hackers with numerous access points into networks which can potentially pose serious threats – from personal information theft in consumer markets to vulnerability of mission-critical networks such as connected power grids. The integrated solution developed together with Altair serves as an essential component for defending against such threats.”
Eran Eshed, co-founder and VP of Worldwide Sales and Marketing for Altair, said: “The growing IoT industry will continue to present a range of security challenges, exceeding the capabilities of standard Internet security protocols. This partnership, leveraging Altair’s market leading IoT chipsets and Check Point bringing its security expertise to the cloud, will prove integral to combating cybercrime.”
