In less than 300 words, summarize the achievements of the company in the nominated category
As an IT security firm with roots in data encryption solutions, Penta Security Systems has continued to expand and innovate by venturing into emerging markets like industry 4.0 and connected car security. Penta Security Systems is tackling one of the greatest challenges currently facing businesses in the era of connectivity where data integrity is of utmost importance and where security threats for the first time also pose a tangible threat to human life.
When it comes to IoT, Penta Security System’s philosophy is “secure first, then connect.” In 2015 the company rolled out a solution that covers all aspects of security within a connected car. The solution named AutoCrypt was a response to the dangers associated with connected cars. Penta Security Systems began researching possible gateways and points of access and thus developed methods for securing the channels of communication through an advanced web application firewall (WAF), V2X (Vehicle-to-Anything) secure communication system utilizing encryption, Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), and a key management system for encryption keys.
