Leveraging the experience of the Essence Group, an IoT powerhouse.
SigmaDots brings the power of blockchain-based cybersecurity to the IoT ecosystem.

SigmaDots secures interactions between IoT devices with advanced blockchain methodologies to create a
decentralized IoT architecture. Our software-based solution harnesses the advantages of modern blockchain
methodologies yet is uniquely adapted to the constrained resources of IoT platforms.

IoT Security Challenges

There are major hurdles to securing always-connected IoT devices and endpoints to enable a true machine-to-machine economy.

No standards – There is no security standard or group of standards for IoT devices and device interoperability

Limited on-board resources – IoT devices have limited on-board resources and can’t run traditional security tools

Centralized approach – IoT sensor systems are highly-centralized

Lots of them – According to Gartner, by the end of this year 6.4 billion “connected things” will be in use worldwide, and over 20 billion by 2020.


The use of IoT networks as the basis for a large-scale cyberattack is just a matter of time. Existing blockchain-based solutions simply don’t suit real-time device interactions.

SigmaDots Solutions

SigmaDots delivers the foundation for true IoT security and visibility.

SigmaDots developed the first decentralized, multilayered IoT security platform with low-friction integration; and with the ability to easily integrate with security operation center (SOC).  SigmaDots’ unique device-embedded agent authenticates critical commands, safeguarding privacy and securing device communication.  We ensure business continuity using mesh routing and provide system resilience during cyberattacks, including DDoS, and communication layer congestion.


Beyond security, SigmaDots enables true visibility and control over networks of interconnected IoT devices – from sensors to insights.


SigmaDots: Ideal for…

Available as either a standalone product or as a seamlessly-embedded component in our partners’ platforms, software-based SigmaDots is ideally suited for IoT applications in a wide range of use cases, including:




Unique SigmaDots Advantages

Ensuring service continuity in large-scale IoT deployments

Built for industrial-scale IoT deployments, SigmaDots is highly-scalable while still providing simple management and uncompromising security.

Mitigating risk of failure with decentralized architecture

When downtime isn’t an option, SigmaDots’ unique decentralized architecture eliminates the risks associated with a single point of failure.

Full flexibility with multiple device protection methods

In the diverse and distributed IoT ecosystem, SigmaDots is completely device agnostic – offering full protection for any device, in any environment.

Decreasing the need for a SOC service by enabling a self-protected ability

Based on software and a device-embedded agent, the scalable solution requires no security operation center and features low-friction integration.
