“Together, let's secure the Internet of Things from the inside out.”

Mocana was founded in 2002 to help protect military aircraft, vehicles, and devices. Its security software protects devices by using cryptography designed to run on microcontrollers and embedded devices. Today, the company serves both the defense and commercial sectors.

"Mocana" means to set free, and its mission is to protect countries, cities, and families by enabling devices of every kind to be trustworthy and run securely and freely.

The company is now running on every type of device you can imagine: fighter jets, helicopters, tanks, commercial aircraft, industrial automation and controls, thermostats, surveillance cameras, network gateways, set-top boxes, medical devices, and much more. In fact, it now protects more than 100 million devices. 200 of the largest industrial manufacturing, aerospace, and defense, utilities, energy, and transportation companies trust Mocana to harden their mission-critical devices and secure IoT communications using Mocana TrustPoint, its embedded IoT endpoint software, and Mocana TrustCenter, its automated security services platform. Mocana’s solutions enable its customers to secure their manufacturing supply chain.

 End-To-End System of Cybersecurity to Help You Secure the Supply Chain

Mocana TrustPoint

Mocana TrustPoint protects more than 100 million devices from cyber threats every day. Mocana’s Cybersecurity System goes beyond traditional perimeter-based security approaches by making devices trustworthy and enabling secure device-to-cloud communications using Mocana’s TrustPoint endpoint protection software.

TrustPoint provides a full-stack architecture for protecting endpoints. It is built with a strong cryptographic engine that makes devices and data trustworthy. TrustPoint ensures device and data integrity, confidentiality, visibility and control for devices, gateways and cloud applications.

Mocana TrustPoint is used in both commercial and military applications and meets the most stringent cybersecurity standards.

  • Compliant: Mocana TrustPoint is FIPS 140-2 Level 1 validated and contains no open source code. Mocana is compliant with IEC 62443-3-3, US NIST 800-53, FISMA High standards, and the Industrial Internet Consortium Endpoint Security Best Practices. Its solutions enable compliance with US NIST 800-63 AAL3, the highest level of authentication assurance.
  • Faster Development and Provisioning: Mocana TrustPoint is pre-integrated with more than 70 chipsets and 30 RTOSes. Its development framework includes simple APIs that make it easy to integrate strong security and hardware-based secure elements with embedded applications.
  • Lower Cost: Mocana's system of cybersecurity helps reduce the time and resources needed to implement and manage essential security on IoT and ICS endpoints. Mocana TrustPoint™ speeds development and reduces development costs.

Mocana TrustCenter

Cyber attacks continue to escalate but IoT and ICS devices lack essential security. Mocana TrustCenter is Services platform for automating the IoT security lifecycle. Mocana TrustCenter is for manufacturers and operators. It works with Mocana TrustPoint and is hosted on a private cloud or public cloud.

Automated Security Lifecycle Management

  • Zero Touch: Enable zero touch device enrollment using standards-based authentication protocols for scalable, high assurance identity and credential management.
  • Automated Security: Keep device and data trustworthy and ensure a lifecycle of trust for secure boot, secure firmware updates, and trusted operations using Mocana’s automated security.
  • Secure Update Tools: Leverage an intelligent platform to manage device enrollment, onboarding, and security updates that secures the device from manufacture to end of life while ensuring supply chain integrity.

Simple Integration

  • Easy-to-Use APIs: Enable applications to call cryptographic functions through a simple set of APIs. Easily replace OpenSSL with a lightweight military-grade crypto library using Mocana’s OpenSSL-compatibility interface.
  • Trust Abstraction: Easily integrate with hardware and software-based secure elements and crypto-accelerators using its trust abstraction layer that simplifies and speeds integration. Mocana TrustPoint™ is integrated with more than 70 chipsets and 30 real-time operating systems (RTOS).
  • Full-Stack: Go beyond traditional perimeter-based security approaches. Leverage its full-stack architecture and strong cryptographic engine to ensure authentication, integrity, devices, gateways, and cloud applications.

Technology: Military-Grade Security throughout the Entire Device Lifecycle

The growth of IoT and connected devices is creating a security risk as cyber attacks continue to escalate both in terms of frequency and sophistication. Common IT and OT security solutions are not effective against IoT attacks and the vast majority of IoT and industrial control devices lack essential cybersecurity measures. This exposes the IoT and industrial supply chain at risk and makes implementing security very difficult.

Mission-Critical Embedded Protection

  • Proven: Since 2002, Mocana has used its deep cybersecurity expertise to assist customers with all aspects of security application lifecycle management, including design, development, integration, validation, quality assurance, compliance, and
  • Compliant: Mocana’s crypto libraries are FIPS 140-2 Level 1 certified and contain no open source code. Mocana is compliant with IEC 62443-3-3 SL4, NIST 800-53, FISMA High standards, and the Industrial Internet Consortium IISF Endpoint Security Best Practices guidance.
  • Tiny Footprint: With a tiny footprint of less than 30KB, its crypto engine has been optimized for use in processing power and memory-constrained environments. Its software is fast and responsive for high-work factor ciphers, hashes, and cryptographic functions.
