Democratizing secure edge to anywhere IoT network connectivity

featuring Jerry Reeves, Vice President of Technology, Tosibox, Inc.

The IoT ecosystem is a function of things, connectivity, data and analytics.

The IoT market will be massive and transformational, but adoption is slow due to the complication of network connectivity and the high costs of network security.

Network connectivity needs to be cost effective, scalable, agnostic and automated to support the many high bandwith, high speed, low latency IoT use cases, from smart building and smart factory to connected healthcare, connected retail, connected utilities... connected "everything".

It is well known that IoT devices are very vulnerable to hacking.  It is very important that end-to-end IoT networks have the basic security recipes embedded, like self-creation, two-factor authentication and RSA/AES encryption.

Without connectivity and cyber security in a reasonable fashion, you don't have IoT.

We are pleased to have Tosibox, Inc. the North American arm of Tosibox Oy (Oulu, Finland) presenting at this event to show the audience a totally new way to look at IoT connectivity and security.

Come on out and learn something new.
