BARCELONA, Spain, July 6, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- ZARIOT, a global IoT and M2M connectivity provider, was named the winner of the Global Mobile (GLOMO) Award for 'Best Mobile Authentication & Security Solution', presented Wednesday at MWC Barcelona 2021. ZARIOT's entry, 'A global SIM with signalling to cloud protection: securing and controlling cellular connectivity for IoT devices', highlights the urgent need to address the security concerns of cellular IoT.
The GLOMOs showcase and celebrate the latest and best mobile and digital products, apps, devices, services, and initiatives to the world. They are the connectivity industry's most prestigious accolade, judged by the sector's most prominent subject matter experts. The judges commented: 'A good example of a long-term solution supporting zero trust principles and addressing a specific weakness in IoT deployments.' This award category recognises the best use of technology to safeguard customer personal data and to help network operators and service providers combat fraudulent access to networks.
All verticals have the need to secure mission- and business-critical devices against denial of service attacks and to effectively ensure data integrity and privacy of all users and devices. ZARIOT allows unrivalled control of connectivity and security based on Zero Trust principles, proprietary signalling protection, and provides security over cellular protocols for the lifetime of devices, no matter their application.
Other entries in the category included Nokia for NetGuard Adaptive Security in 5G and ZTE Corporation for Software-Defined Security Solution based on SDN/NFV. 'It is not only a significant achievement for us at ZARIOT, but really is a big step towards realising real continual improvement in IoT security in mobile networks,' said Dawood Ghalaieny, ZARIOT CEO. 'There were other novel security solutions in this category, but I think our win demonstrates that despite emerging problems on the bleeding edge of IoT security, the security of cellular connectivity must become a priority for enterprises.'
