Asguard Networks is disrupting the M2M marketplace by building technology that enables flexible communications while being secure by default. Based on 8 years R&D and international standards, Asguard Networks' SimpleConnect? is a centrally-managed software layer (currently packaged as a security appliance) that meets the security and connectivity challenges faced by the ever-growing Internet of Things, particularly when attempting to establish connectivity and access over enterprise and untrusted 3rd party networks (cellular, DSL/Cable, Internet, SatCom). Much like traditional IT solutions protect our servers, laptops and mobile devices, our SimpleConnect? product line enables the Internet of Things and its billions of connected devices to communicate via shared infrastructure in a way that is secure, robust, flexible and cost effective.
