Former Citrix Executive Brings More Than 30 Years of Expertise Growing Enterprise Companies to the IoTium Board

Santa Clara, Calif. October 12, 2017 – IoTium, the first secure network infrastructure company for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), today announced the appointment of Klaus Oestermann as the newest member of the company’s board of directors. Oestermann brings more than thirty years of experience in building, scaling and running a global enterprise company to the IoTium board. As a member of IoTium’s board, Oestermann will help guide and accelerate IoTium’s business growth as it enters the next phase of customer success and product innovation.

“At IoTium, we have an immediate opportunity to help industrial organizations leverage IIoT to modernize their legacy, mission-critical environments. Klaus’ experience in growing Citrix NetScaler into the market leader it is today will be extremely valuable as we enter into our next phase of rapid growth,” said Ron Victor, CEO, IoTium. “With Klaus, and the recent addition of several other industry leaders to the board, all the pieces are in place to take IoTium to the next level.”

For the past three decades, Oestermann has worked within the networking, cloud and enterprise software industries. He spent more than 17 years at Citrix and the past 10 years running and building the company’s business in networking and security, working as part of the Citrix executive leadership team in the role of SVP & General Manager of the Delivery Networks Division. He is currently the Chairman of the Board for Zigna, a recently announced real estate technology startup and an advisor and investor at The Fabric, a Silicon Valley-based pre-Series A startup foundry, accelerator that co-created IoTium investor.

IoTium Networking Managed Service Offering Brings One-Click Deployment
to Relevant Solutions’ Building Solutions Customers

Santa Clara, Calif. and Centennial, CO – October 10, 2017 – IoTium, the first secure network infrastructure company for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), and Relevant Solutions, a preferred provider of critical service solutions, today announced a strategic relationship to bring patented One-Click deployment to Relevant Solutions’ Building Solutions customers. Under the terms of the agreement, IoTium’s Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) offering will be deployed alongside Relevant Solutions’ building automation and energy management products to enable real estate industries such as commercial, corporate, government, and institutional to securely connect legacy onsite building automation systems to greenfield cloud-based applications.

“IoTium and Relevant have a shared vision for IIoT and the future of smart buildings that can truly realize maximum workplace effectiveness and satisfaction,” said Ron Victor, founder and CEO of IoTium. “IoTium has a proven track record of solving deployment complexities and security for the building automation industry to enable smarter, more sustainable buildings at lower costs. We’re not just enabling organizations to eliminate expensive truck rolls and onsite technicians, we’re allowing for the secure deployment of IIoT solutions.”

Until now, deployment complexity and security concerns have caused a widespread lag in the adoption of IIoT. Traditional Information Technology (IT) methodologies involving command line interfaces (CLIs), usernames and passwords; changes to enterprise proxy and firewall policies; are not conducive to deployment at scale in the realm of the Operations Technology (OT) professionals tasked with the care and maintenance of traditionally closed industrial systems. Industrial IoT requires connecting air-gapped, unconnected, mission-critical control and automation systems to applications that reside in the public, private and hybrid cloud.

“Relevant Solutions, along with our strategic partners, brings centuries of combined experience to building automation and energy management,” said Scott K. Hoffmann, vice president of Building Solutions at Relevant. “We believe that buildings of the future will be designed, engineered and constructed to be exceptionally dependable, environmentally efficient and ergonomically friendly work environments. Attaining this means having building automation control systems that interconnect with every feature within a building. The challenge lies in digitizing legacy systems in a way that is both quickly scalable and secure.”

IoTium’s NaaS offering solves the fundamental industrial connectivity problem of “brownfield” environments embracing the promise of IIoT, helping them to achieve secure, remote connectivity at scale. IoTium’s patented One-Click technology enables organizations to securely deploy and manage a wide range of services for diverse industrial environments with the single click of a mouse. With IoTium, analytics are deployed at the edge of the network, accelerating the adoption of machine learning and artificial intelligence.

In addition to One-Click deployment, IoTium also provides:

  • Zero-Touch Secure Connectivity: IoTium eliminates the need for onsite technicians or costly truck-rolls, CLIs, usernames and passwords, or changes to enterprise proxy and firewall policies.
  • Built-in Security: Embedding security in every layer of the IIoT stack, IoTium uses encryption and abstraction to secure both the assets and data, in motion and at rest, isolating every single data stream.
  • Discovery: IoTium provides complete visibility to all devices connected to a company’s IIoT network, enabling organizations to ensure that everything on the network is authorized to be there.
  • Services at Scale: IoTium’s architecture supports the software change management process through multiple levels of authentication at scale.
