Leveraging the experience of the Essence Group, an IoT powerhouse,
SigmaDots brings the power of distributed architecture cybersecurity to the IoT ecosystem

Essence SigmaDots’ unique device-embedded agent authenticates critical commands, safeguarding privacy and securing device communication with multiple device protection methods. Essence SigmaDots’ solution is based on a fresh, holistic approach going far beyond conventional, traditional cybersecurity methodologies, and providing unique solutions in an ever-changing environment. Our solution ensures service continuity in large-scale IoT deployments using mesh routing and provides system resilience during cyberattacks, including DDoS and communication layer congestion.

IoT Security Challenges

The Internet of Things is a challenging ecosystem to cyber secure – the vulnerable devices have very limited, individual computational power and a wide range of operating systems and communication protocols. There are major hurdles to securing always-connected IoT devices and networks:

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.

Consumer demand: Consumers and regulators alike demand secure systems and data protection. Government agencies from the EU to California have placed data security front and center.

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

The time for robust IoT cybersecurity is now.

SigmaDots Solutions

Essence 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.

The  solution enables complete network visibility, delivering insights into attacks and suspicious activities to the SOC, allowing for faster response.


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:
