Düsseldorf/ Barcelona, 17. October 2018 – exceet Secure Solutions, a specialist in large scale cryptography and security technologies and NEXIONA, an IoT middleware software company reached a technology agreement to introduce a highly secure edge gateway aiming at those customers who require the highest levels of security with complete control of their data.
exceet Secure Solutions launched a highly secure gateway running a complete IoT platform from NEXIONA (an adapted version of its MIIMETIQ EDGE) directly on device in Docker containers.
This agreement was possible thanks to the partnership Tech Data Germany has with both parties (exceet Secure Solutions and NEXIONA). As a value add distributor with a new IoT & Analytics unit Tech Data recommended Nexiona IoT solutions out of a broad portfolio to exceet Secure Solutions.
“With this technology partnership the gateway will be able to manage local data and its connectivity with the corporate network. The gateway used by exceet connect BASE is not only equipped with a managed crypto chip, which allows an almost configuration-free and at the same time secure implementation, but also comes with a complete Docker runtime environment, which makes it especially easy for developers to distribute and maintain their IoT applications. Thus, the MIIMETIQ Edge provided as a Docker Container is an ideal companion for all customers who not only want to have full control over their gateways, but also want to keep the use of the data under control at all times.” says Christian Schmitz, Managing Director of exceet Secure Solutions.
“Data ownership and platform control is a major request in the market. Besides edge computing increasing security on the gateways is a major pain point in IoT environments. That is why this partnership is a real high value adding agreement to benefit customer needs. One of the major reasons why we all agreed in this powerful partnership is that there are already a lot of customers asking for that specific solution. Our intention is to create an IoT ecosystem that can perfectly match market needs” says Jaume Rey, CEO of NEXIONA.
“The joint effort of Exceet, NEXIONA and Tech Data will make a powerful solution available to all customers with needs of high levels of data control and ownership. I am happy that Tech Data could initiate this partnership making use of our holistic eco system. This is one of the strengths of Tech Data: connecting Business Partners to the best vendors in order to find state of the art reselling solutions for our partners”, says Peter Bachl, IoT Business Development Manager at Tech Data in Germany.
