Why use a secure IoT gateway?

Data protection as well as protection against tampering and unauthorised access, in combination with real-time-capable communication, are of essential importance to Industry 4.0, for decentralised energy systems and for Smart Cities.

Data communication in these areas should be geared towards a similarly high security standard to the one prescribed by the German Federal Office for Information Security for intelligent measuring systems. The difference between this product and the smart meter gateway of the energy industry lies in the variety of systems. Companies need a solution that can be used simultaneously in their various process, system and software landscapes.

Why you should implement your IoT project with devolo

In addition to a modularly configurable, high-performance hardware platform, devolo also has the expertise required to produce and ship a highly secure IoT gateway – in large quantities!

IoT gateway platform

Based on our IoT gateway platform, we develop a customised solution for your requirements. The modular design lets you make necessary adaptations quickly.
High-performance hardware ensures that your software and applications can be installed in the same way as on a smartphone.
Security or other software updates can be installed "over the air".
We have extensive experience in the network security field – gained through our many years of research and development together with many strong partners from the academic and industrial sectors.

End-to-end security

We placed foremost emphasis on security as early as the product design and development stage. In our specially protected R&D department in Aachen, we have ensured from the start that unauthorised persons cannot gain any product knowledge. The latest security standards from our research projects, such as stringent hardware security and continuously applied open standards (OPCUA, for example), have been incorporated into product development.

Highly complex manufacturing process – already in place!

We have established complex, secure and reliable production with our manufacturer in Germany. Individualised devices can be produced and shipped in mass quantities.

The production facility is specially protected. This way, we ensure that no information can be stolen and no malware installed without being detected.

From project development with the customer to shipment, we can map a secure process to ensure maximum hardware and software security.
