Expanded Agreement Defines New Co-Developed Products and Positions Kudelski Security to Support Ionic Platform with Sales and Services
PHOENIX and ATLANTA, April 11, 2018 – Kudelski Security, the cybersecurity division within the Kudelski Group (SIX:KUD.S) and trusted innovator for the world’s most security-conscious organizations, and Ionic Security, a pioneer of high-assurance data trust, today announced a strategic partnership enabling both organizations to leverage each other’s intellectual property (IP) and deep skillsets to innovate, launch new products and expand client access to the Ionic Security technology platform.
The partnership builds upon an existing relationship between the companies, which for more than a year has resulted in multiple joint initiatives. The first of these focused on securing surveillance cameras with an IoT Edge Security appliance that leverages Ionic Data Protection and the Kudelski IoT Security Platform. This solution was demonstrated at the Consumer Electronics Show in early 2018.
Kudelski Security is also integrating Ionic technology into a new Kudelski Security proprietary enclave solution that enables clients to isolate highly sensitive data in a secure environment. Through the new solution, which will be released later this year, organizations will be able to meet contractual demands for high assurance IT and controlled access to third party data. The result is a practical solution that overcomes the challenges of protecting internal projects, which are at risk if they are not segmented from standard users and the larger IT environment.
“Kudelski Security has continued to distinguish itself by adopting the most cutting-edge technologies and approaches to best meet the demands of a constantly evolving threat landscape," said Rich Fennessy, chief executive officer of Kudelski Security. "The Ionic Platform is powerful technology that complements our strategies to deliver comprehensive security for devices, IT environments and data.”
“Ionic and Kudelski both share a commitment to providing clients with the most advanced and effective security solutions available,” said Eric Hinkle, chief executive officer at Ionic Security. “Together, we will provide organizations with the ability to assure their data is secure and will not fall into the wrong hands, no matter if that data is in-transit, at rest or in-use.”
The Kudelski - Ionic partnership also enables Kudelski Security to sell and support the entire Ionic portfolio to clients in the United States and Europe. This will broaden the access and availability of the Ionic technology platform to clients globally.
