The Cybersecurity Experts at Praetorian Join the Industrial Internet Consortium

Leveraging its collective expertise to advance a common security framework and a rigorous methodology to assess security in Industrial Internet Systems

AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Praetorian (https://www.praetorian.com), a leading provider of advanced cybersecurity assessment and advisory services, today announced it has joined the Industrial Internet Consortium® (IIC™), the world's leading organization transforming business and society by accelerating the adoption of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). This membership provides Praetorian opportunities to leverage its vast Internet of Things (IoT) security expertise to advance industry protocols and best practices at multiple levels of the entire IoT ecosystem.

"Innovation is exploding as the next wave of technological progress transforms our world into an increasingly smart and connected cyber-physical place, where billions of new devices and sensors will be made even smarter by intelligence in the cloud," said Paul Jauregui, Vice President of Praetorian. "All of us at Praetorian are excited to be working with new partners and industry groups who see security as an enabler of next-wave innovation and a requisite for new technologies to meet their full market potential."

As a collective of highly technical engineers and developers offering deep security expertise, Praetorian provides end-to-end IoT security assessment and advisory services—from chip to cloud—for today's leading organizations, including Microsoft, GE, Samsung, Whirlpool, and Hyundai. The firm's solutions provide coverage across technological domains, including embedded devices, firmware, wireless communication protocols, web and mobile applications, cloud services and APIs, and back-end network infrastructure. Acting as an extension of its clients' internal teams that offers deep security expertise, Praetorian is uniquely positioned to spot gaps and anticipate shifts in IoT security trends across its diverse customer list and industries served.

"Security is top of mind for everyone in the IoT ecosystem," said Dr. Richard Soley, Executive Director, IIC. "We're happy Praetorian joined the IIC and is sharing its expertise with our members on IoT security projects."

In 2016, Microsoft recognized Praetorian as a "best-in-class" Internet of Things global auditing partner and a founding member of its new Security Program for Azure IoT. Through this partnership, Praetorian began collaborating on the IIC's Industrial Internet Security Maturity Model (SSM), which provides an approach to building strategies for the implementation of mature security practices that address the needs and constraints of IIoT systems. As an IIC member, Praetorian will continue its support of the consortium's SSM, while contributing its collective expertise to advance future IIoT security standards and best practices.

In addition to its involvement with the IIC, Praetorian actively contributes to the OWASP Application Security Verification Standard (ASVS) and is working to extend the software-centric evaluation standard to cover hardware/embedded security control categories and test cases that are critical components of IoT systems.
