OASIS MQTT and the NIST Cybersecurity Framework

Machine-to-Machine Intelligence (M2Mi) Corporation, provider of M2M Intelligence®, the essential platform for the M2M & Internet of Things economy, today announced support for the recently published OASIS MQTT and the NIST Cybersecurity framework.

MQTT (Message Queuing Telemetry Transport) has emerged as an important standard for connectivity and messaging in the M2M and IoT environment. The OASIS MQTT and the NIST Cybersecurity framework for MQTT defines security best practices, such as alignment with the NIST Cybersecurity framework, and guidance for organizations wishing to deploy MQTT in a way consistent with the NIST Framework for improving critical infrastructure protection.

The M2M Intelligence® platform and its M2M Cyber Security component enables an organization to address and implement these core cybersecurity functions within their MQTT deployments. M2M Cyber Security includes patented secure “Lockbox” technology, which implements privacy and security policies.

“Cybersecurity is one of the major challenges that organizations face as they look to drive value from M2M and IoT business models. The OASIS MQTT Security Subcommittee recognizes this challenge and have included cybersecurity guidelines for MQTT implementations. We are pleased to support the new OASIS MQTT cybersecurity framework within our leading M2M Intelligence® platform v5.6 and strongly believe these guidelines will give organizations increased confidence in deploying M2M and IoT solutions,” says Geoff Brown, CEO, Machine-to-Machine Intelligence (M2Mi) Corporation.

The M2M Intelligence® platform, through the use of secure Lockbox technologies, enables organizations to rapidly build secure M2M and IoT solutions. M2M Intelligence® simplifies the process required to establish global telecom and device connectivity, embed cyber security, and automate an intelligent M2M & IoT solution. Applications can therefore focus on business logic, while the M2M Intelligence® platform provides the required secure infrastructure to rapidly build out complete offerings.

The M2M Intelligence® platform is available from the IBM Cloud Marketplace and through the M2Mi website. To learn more about the M2M Intelligence® enterprise cloud platform for M2M and IoT, please visit http://www.m2mi.com.
