Sikur, a cybersecurity firm based in Sophia Antipolis, is launching the Security Design Lab in collaboration with the Université Côte d’Azur, aiming to contribute the latest security technology to detect any IoT breach for firms and governments in this era of hyper-connectivity.
The Security Design Lab (SDL) is a large collaboration network with the Mediterranean Institute of Risk, Environment and Sustainable Development, IMREDD, which will generate discussions and disseminate knowledge to increase the security of IoT devices right from the source.
Fabio Fischer, CEO of Sikur, believes that “the most significant problem in the market today is how to guarantee safety and privacy in any kind of IoT device”. Fabio has full faith in the potential of this innovative lab to combat these pressing issues, which lie at the heart of the industry.
The SDL will focus on ensuring privacy and security in highly capillarized environments, offering sharp solutions for authentication, privileged access, and digital interactions H2H & M2M, while also developing applied research in artificial Intelligence, mobile edge computing and quantum cybersecurity. This SDL will offer practical solutions for partners all around the world.
The Security Design Lab is finely tuned to tackle serious security challenges related to mobility, autonomous vehicles, smart Home, Smart City, Smart Grid, Industry 4.0 and “anywhere working” trends.
The SDL will allow companies (manufacturers of IoT devices, solution integrators, connectivity providers, Telco companies and other organizations within the smart devices industry) to test the security and management of their connected assets in an in-person environment prior to market deployment and in total compliance with data regulations for each location.
This vast network will enable end users to access devices and technologies that can expand and improve the level of security in their projects, transforming the SDL into a world reference center for large-scale security projects.
