Cog has been preparing for the revolution in connected device architecture since 2014. The traditional architecture of IoT and other connected devices has created innumerable opportunities for bad actors to compromise the device, thereby forcing security policy to accept higher risk and restricted access, which in turn poses a burden on users. We have adopted an embedded solution built on formal methods, modularity, proactive security, trustworthiness, and adaptability to enable highly secure connected devices.
Cog leverages modularity to isolate critical functions and services on connected devices. This approach pro-actively secures these devices by reducing the attack surface and increases reliability by eliminating single points of failure. Cog focuses on securing the kernel, data, and network as the baseline to our security. Additionally, we can isolate specific applications, operating systems, or services to further achieve a full defense in depth based solution. The system can scale linearly and infinitely, thus reducing bottlenecks and preserving performance. All of this is available for the IoT market with the flexibility to run all applications effectively and securely.
This unique approach provides the assurance of high grade security for the device so our customers can focus on delivering best-in-class IoT applications, performance and usability for their customers.
Cog, based in Chicago, leads the industry in secure connected device implementations with 30+ deployments across world governments, defense organizations and corporate enterprises.
