Sectigo Buys Icon Labs to Expand IoT Security Platform

End-to-end IoT security product aims to give manufacturers, systems integrators, and businesses a means to harden device security.

Sectigo, a major commercial certificate authority (CA) and Web security provider, today confirmed its acquisition of Internet of Things (IoT) security firm Icon Labs and the launch of its end-to-end IoT security platform.

Icon Labs offers cross-platform security tools for embedded OEMs and IoT device manufacturers. Its security modules can be used as point products to meet security standards or as a foundation for securing the device itself rather than depending on perimeter security.

Sectigo, formerly known as Comodo CA, wants to use Icon Labs' capabilities to build out its IoT security platform. It currently provides scalable certificate issuance for connected IoT devices. As part of its expanded IoT platform, Sectigo will add specialized management capabilities so IoT vendors, service integrators, and consortiums can scale and manage device ecosystems.

Some of the features worked into the Sectigo IoT security platform include secure boot, which verifies the integrity of code and data before execution and before installing updates, an embedded firewall, TPM integration, secure remote updates and alerts, and on-prem CA.

"With the addition of Icon Labs, Sectigo ensures overall system integrity by enabling complete visibility and control over each IoT device lifecycle and providing embedded technologies to further secure the integrity of the device, its identity, and its data," said Jason Soroko, CTO of IoT for Sectigo, in a statement. Icon Labs will keep its brand as a subsidiary of Sectigo.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Read more details here.
