16-02-2023 | Wurth | Industrial

Würth Elektronik has partnered with Crypto Quantique to collaborate with enhancing security for Würth Elektronik's wireless modules.

Combining Crypto Quantique's QuarkLink security software platform with the company's wireless modules allows thousands of sensor nodes' automatic and secure connection to local or cloud-based servers. The platform provides device provisioning, onboarding, security monitoring, renewal and revocation of certificates and keys, performed with only a few keystrokes on a GUI. Users, therefore, have all the functions needed to manage IoT devices in their lifecycle.

"Würth Elektronik is often the first choice for radio modules, especially with industrial IoT applications. The spectrum of products offered, combined with wide-ranging support and application expertise, is outstanding," Dr Shahram Mossayebi, CEO of Crypto Quantique, explains the cooperation. "Expanding the offering with QuarkLink also raises the appeal of these products. This makes implementing and managing secure IoT networks faster and easier. At a time when the global threats to such networks are greater than ever, this is an important advantage."

"We are always interested in providing our customers with the best IoT technology, reducing their development costs and workload without compromising performance, reliability or security. QuarkLink is an important new building block here, "says Oliver Opitz, Vice President, Wireless Connectivity and Sensors at Würth Elektronik eiSos GmbH and Co KG.
