IoTium and Relevant Solutions Partner to Bring Secure Remote Management and Connectivity for Building Automation Systems

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.

IoTium Continues Momentum in Building Automation Market Through Distribution Alliance with Yorkland Controls

Partnership Expands IoTium’s Presence in Canadian Market; Enables Yorkland Controls’ Customers to Overcome Adoption Barriers to Connect Building Automation Systems at Scale

Santa Clara, Calif. – September 13, 2017 – IoTium, the first secure network infrastructure company for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), has expanded its presence in Canada through a strategic distribution alliance with Yorkland Controls, a leading provider of control systems and solutions headquartered in Ontario. Yorkland Controls will now offer the IoTium Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) solution as part of their complete portfolio of Building Automation Systems (BAS) products, enabling customers to remotely securely connect multiple commercial buildings with an array of sub-systems to the full range of applications that reside in public, private and hybrid clouds or datacenters. The IoTium NaaS solution enables Yorkland’s customers to gain unprecedented insights into the performance of their buildings without the need for costly truck-rolls, cumbersome usernames and passwords, or changes to existing enterprise IT firewall and proxy policies.

“The Canadian building automation market is eager to embrace the benefits of IIoT but has been slowed by concerns related to security and deployment complexities,” said Gerry Cellucci, Vice President of Yorkland Controls. “By adding the IoTium NaaS solution to our product portfolio, we’re enabling our customers and partners to overcome the barriers to IIoT adoption and securely deploy and manage a wide range of services for diverse building automation systems with the single click of a mouse. This will radically transform the way our customers do business.”

Industry analyst firm IDC estimates that the overall Canadian Internet of Things (IoT) market will be worth more than USD $4.9 billion in 2018. However, according to a Genpact Research Institute study, adoption has been hinged by security concerns and questions about IIoT integration with legacy systems. Adding to this is the fact that cloud computing infrastructure wasn’t fully realized in Canada until 2016, while it had been widely available in other countries for multiple years. To compete on a global scale, IIoT solutions must be more broadly available within Canada, a problem solved for the Canadian building automation market with the IoTium and Yorkland Controls distribution agreement.

“This alliance with Yorkland Controls gives us a direct line to support their customer base in adopting next generation building automation technologies,” said Ron Victor, founder and CEO of IoTium. “Yorkland Controls has been in the business for over 45 years, giving them a strong understanding of market needs. I look forward to working closely with Gerry and the rest of the team to drive greater IIoT adoption in Canada.”

Since the beginning of this year, IoTium has added a slew of new customers in the building automation space. IoTium offers a unique and completely secure, scalable and extensible open network infrastructure platform so that anyone can connect any device, using any gateway and any physical network, from any operator to any cloud and any application and be guaranteed the security of their data. It allows those in the building automation industry to capture the financial benefits of IIoT while significantly reducing cyberattack risks.

The IoTium NaaS solution is immediately available to Yorkland Controls’ customers and partners. For more information on the benefits that organizations in the building automation industry can achieve with IoTium, please visit: http://yorkland.net/suppliers/iotium.
